Service Description

Career Coaching - I work with you to find the career that's right for you, and then target the industry and key players who can hire you. We create customized CVs and cover letters and we prepare for interviews together. If you want to be promoted within your current company, we create a plan to increase your visibility and productivity, so that you become a natural choice for promotions.

Small Business /Marketing Coach -- I work with small business owners to help them increase their revenues by improving their marketing and sales process. This includes web design, SEO strategy, blogging, etc. In addition, I help you create strategies to increase your visibility in the areas of speaking, writing, networking, referrals, etc. I can also help edit your marketing material so that it flows nicely and is engaging to the reader. If you need new material from scratch, I can create your marketing message, deliver powerpoint presentations, or create your blog topics/content.

Health & Fitness -- I help busy executives stay committed to their health goals by creating a strategy to put health & fitness into their daily lives in a structured way. This may include planning meals, putting down routines for exercise, and dedicating time to meditation or renewal (via reading inspirational material).

Whatever your needs are, I can help you create a strategy to achieve it and keep you motivated and inspired along the journey.
