Among the areas we can help are:

  • Developing a business plan
  • Better time management
  • Marketing and successful sales conversion
  • Developing your people and potential leaders
  • And much more.

Business-Building Seminars and Webinars

The most impactful investment we can make is the one we make in ourselves.  As entrepreneurs and professionals, we need to remain on the cutting-edge of change, which requires regular training.  Knowledge is not only power but it opens up our vision to see circumstances more clearly. Many professionals enter into business knowing their craft well, but often lack the business skills to run a business successfully.  Only 20% of business will last beyond 5 years.  Knowledge gained from a business seminar could provide the necessary knowledge to avoid the common pitfalls that can take a business down.

There are no seminars scheduled at this time but will be posed here once they are set.

If you would like to discuss having customized training session, please contact me.

What does your business need to grow to the next level?

Whether you are a contractor trying to win more projects, a distributor trying to better compete in a highly competitive marketplace, or an overwhelmed designer, trying to manage within a complex project delivery process, coaching can help.  Coaching offers an in-depth exploration into potential blind-spots and hidden opportunities.  Most of all, coaching facilitates action and generates momentum toward higher levels of business and personal success.

What you will likely receive from a coaching relationship:

Coaching is client-centered and client-directed conversation, where the coach honors your stated desired outcome. It is our sacred privilege to work with you to achieve those chosen outcomes.  Coaching is process, where you do most of the “heavy lifting” where you are in the seat of creation where you will be held accountable to DO what you are committed to accomplishing. As your coach I can offer you offer tools, insight and hold a space for co-creative work.
