Artisan & Small Business Coaching

I have more than 15 years of business experience, including working for various successful, and reputable companies in marketing, business development and product management, as well as creating a successful, dynamic, and multi-channeled business selling my original artwork online and working with licensing companies to license the images to other companies.

In addition to running my art business, I am passionate about working with small business owners because I believe that doing work you love can change your life!

Each month, on a selective basis, I accept two to three clients to work with in a coaching/consulting capacity.

Work With Me

You may wish to start your own business, but are unsure about what type of business you want to start. You may have a new idea or a side hustle, along with a day job. Or perhaps you are seeking a career that you are passionate about and that will be exciting and fulfilling, and need a fresh perspective on how you should go about moving forward.

I’ve experienced every phase of this process and love to work with people who are motivated and energized about their business or their business idea. I feel that one of the most important aspects of running a successful business is saving your valuable time and resources for what really matters.

A note about working with me: Over the years, I’ve hired and worked with many consultants and coaches. One important thing that I’ve learned is that those coaching/consulting experiences that have been meaningful and valuable to me as a business person, have then those in which the expert is open and honest and doesn’t view our relationship through a lens of competition. I will always be open and honest and I genuinely want you to succeed! While we’re working together, you can ask me any questions that you’d like about how I’ve created a successful business and I will answer you as honestly and directly as possible.

If we decide to work together, I will customize the plan based on your current business goals and desired results.

Some Specific Areas I Help Clients With

I often hear that people know what they want to create, but don’t know what to do to get started.
I’ll help you uncover and clear blocks that are affecting your ability to move forward.

This includes your overall product offering, product pricing, product placement, and your overall brand presence.

How to maximize your marketing dollars to receive the best possible results to grow your following and your business. There are many different facets of online marketing, including social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest (Pinterest is not technically a social media platform, but still a fantastic avenue), etc.), advertising, and search engine marketing.
If you’re selling a product, exceptional photography is a key part of communicating to your customer base what that product looks like. When I started my business, I had a simple point-and-click camera with free photo editing software, and over the years have invested in professional cameras and better photo editing software. There are many tips to help you to maximize the equipment that you currently have, and to plan for the equipment that you may need in the future.

As an artist/artisan, it is important to ensure that you’re valuable assets are protected. I consult with a licensed attorney to ensure that your questions will be answered legally and accurately.

Almost every artist and artisan I have worked with has received a benefit from pinpointing where they’d like to place their business focus. Determining your sales strategy as an artisan is the key to determining where to direct your resources and energy in your business. If you are planning to display your artwork at brick and mortar, (traditional) galleries, I can provide you with a template containing all of the questions that you should ask to ensure the safety of your artwork and to protect your rights as an artist.

If you have researched my online art business, you have found that I have a 100% positive customer satisfaction rating. There are many ways to ensure that you protect against damaging your brand, and your business, as well as to ensure that you keep your customers happy to secure repeat business.
Simply stated, utilizing technology can improve and streamline your business processes, facilitate online marketing and improve your sales. There are many different resources on the market today. Many of my clients have grown frustrated with trying to improve their business processes using specific web tools, only to realize that they’re spending more time and/or money than they were to begin with. We can work together to determine how you can best utilize these tools to help you save both time and money.

Who are you, what are you offering, and what makes you unique?

Determine who and what, exactly your target customer or client looks like.
Create business, sales and financial growth objectives for your first year in business, and for the next five years. Knowing where you want and need to go is the quickest path to getting there.
Whether your business is brand new or already established, you need a business plan. If you don’t already have one, I’m here to help.

How Coaching Sessions Work and What They Cost

A Single Session: $250

  • Once we decide to move forward, I will provide you with a Vision Workbook to complete, so that we can clearly define our objectives in working together. I only consider myself successful when you succeed, and it is important for me to understand which business development phase you are currently in, and what you’d like to achieve.
