I am so excited to begin offering coaching sessions for creative business owners, happily titled Serendipity Sessions! I have been in business for seven years, and in those years I have learned quite a few things. I would love to say that it has been an easy road, but it has been one filled with twists and turns, highs and lows. However, the entire time, learning as I went along, I also knew that what I was learning would in turn be a way to be able to help other creatives. We are not meant to be people who hold everything to ourselves - we are designed to help each other to succeed, and that is what these sessions will be built upon.
I do want to preface this post as well, and include that if you are in need of a "full time" business coach or something long term that is a few months or a year long consistency, that is not what these will be - this will be for you if you need help with a few things but already know generally what it is that you want to do or are doing currently, making a plan together with me in either one or a few sessions. Perhaps you want to learn a new skill, simply have someone look at things from a different perspective, or have a seasoned business owner to chat with to offer suggestions and ideas with taking care of your clients better - think of this as a power session to develop your business into a stronger one, and one that you will love even more.
the preliminary details
Prior to our session, I will send you a detailed questionnaire to fill out with items specifically pertaining to what you have chosen, which will be due 48 hours before we meet. Currently, Serendipity Sessions are limited to the topics below so that I can serve you in the best way possible. We will have a 45 minute Facetime or Skype session and chat about all of the details to help you create a firm foundation and set you on a great path, making a plan to help you take steps in the right direction.
Following our time together, we will schedule a follow-up chat either two or four weeks later, depending on the plan we created during our initial session(s) to answer any additional questions that may have come up while implementing changes. I want you to feel confident and that you are set up for success in the months ahead, so I will be there to support you as you create an amazing business that works well for you.
Serendipity Sessions will be booked on a limited basis in order to best serve you and dedicate my time to you the best way that I can. One session is $125, with additional sessions available at a special rate. If you would like additional sessions, please be specific in what you think you will need so that I can help you as much as possible. For what is available currently, please read the details below.
Balancing Mama + Business Life
PRIORITY SETTING BY YOUR SEASON
There are certain times in our lives that everything gets completely shifted - the arrival of a new baby, perhaps you change jobs, or even have a child who begins to do sports during a certain time of year. This means that you need to change your focus and perhaps make changes within your business so that it can still succeed but not overwhelm you tremendously. We will chat about what you have going on currently and make a plan to help you prioritize pieces within your business to help you to thrive in the season of life you are in.
TIMEBLOCKING YOUR DAYS
I run every single piece of my business in blocks of time. Almost every day, I have very specific hours that I do certain things - when it comes to designing, emails, blogging, social media, etcetera for my business, and then the flipside, running our household. Every single thing is on a schedule or a routine in our home as well, but loosely and in a way that is easily adaptable. This helps to keep things consistent but do-able and make sure that I can be the best mom possible to my littles, while also remembering to do the laundry and cook dinner too,and keeping things moving in my business at a happy pace. We will chat about what will work for you and find pockets of time in your days that you work the best in order to help you to feel more confident in your day to day routine.
Nestling into your Niche
FOCUSING ON YOUR TRUE GIFTS
When you think about what your true gifts are, are you using those within your business to help it to become something you absolutely love?? Or, are you offering A, B, C, D, E, F, and G, but they all have different people and products to them and they simply don't blend together because of it? Or, are you doing things simply because people have asked you to, but your heart isn't in it? You want to create a business you love, and honing in on the gifts you have to make that business incredible is exactly what we will cover in this session.
BUILDING A BUSINESS YOU LOVE
You wake up every single day to get to work on your business and create something incredible that you get to call yours. Is it still giving you joy in your heart, or are you simply going through the days and going through the motions? We will chat together to see what it is you truly love the most, and work together to make a plan to build a business you love that stirs your soul with happiness every single day.
Loving Your Clients Well
SYSTEMS TO DEVELOP A SWEET WORKFLOW
If you are services provider, when someone first inquires with you, what do you do? Do you have a system in place for working with clients and having a workflow from beginning to end, to make sure everything is taken care of throughout your time together?
Or, if you are a product based business, when someone purchases from you, what do you do? How do you keep track of orders and package them to keep orders flowing consistently?
In this session, we will work together to put together a workflow that works for you - whether you are someone who works with paper or online with checklists. We will create a workflow to help you automate more of your business so that you can spend more of your time doing what you love the most and taking care of people in the best way possible.
CREATING AN INCREDIBLE CLIENT EXPERIENCE
If you are a service provider, from the first time a client emails you until after your time together is complete, you want to give them an incredible experience from working with you. You want them to know how much you appreciate them and also give them items sprinkled throughout your time together that have meaning - whether it is a notecard thanking them for meeting with you, sending them a welcome gift, a custom item that you know they'll love, or something else that makes them feel loved, it is our responsibility to be consistent in taking care of our clients so that they all receive the same incredible experience when working with us but also create a client experience that works for you as well.
In this session, we will work together to determine the steps you take while working with them, and set yourself up for success in creating a loved experience for them.
