Interested in getting an objective perspective on your business but don’t feel quite ready for a long-term commitment?

A Discovery Session provides you with honest and outside feedback about the strengths and weaknesses of your business, where it may be vulnerable, and how to evaluate the severity of those risks.

How It Works

To begin, you’ll schedule an appointment for a virtual session and complete a detailed questionnaire (about your current challenges, long-term goals, and business risks), and provide payment.

Our intense 90-minute session will cover such topics as:

  • why you started the business
  • where you want to be in the future
  • your SMART and CLEAR goals as a business owner
  • your current strategic planning process
  • biggest strengths and possible niche areas
  • the barriers and vulnerabilities that are holding you back
  • a basic root cause analysis to understand the reasons for feeling overwhelmed

What to Expect

During the session, I provide a Devil’s Advocate perspective to help reveal possible fears that may be keeping your business from growing.

Consultations are done by phone or Skype.

After the call, I will send you a written report with recommendations, tools, strategies, and next steps to help your business move toward your goals.

I will also offer suggestions for how to:

  • develop your leadership strengths
  • understand your decision-making process
  • detect business vulnerabilities and blind spots
  • prioritize your weekly tasks
  • calculate your net profit
  • identify your Ideal Customers
  • select a niche area that fits your unique situation

After this session, if you decide to sign up for a premium service (such as a Strategic Risk Program, Comprehensive Strategic Plan Evaluation, or customized project), I will apply the full cost of the Discovery Session to the premium service you choose.

A coaching relationship is designed to facilitate your professional growth. By working with a skilled expert, you benefit from her or his practical knowledge, encouragement, and hold-your-feet-to-the-fire accountability.

Each role is clearly defined. As the facilitator, I take on the role of a guide and teacher, providing you with careful guidance in topics that can be treacherous. As the person being coached, you must commit to staying accountable over a set period of time, with defined performance parameters and a willingness to maintain curiosity during the process. (Read more here.)

Since the coaching process can be very intense, it’s important that we establish trust before diving into more difficult topics. You may want to get a sense of my style and pace; start with a Free Initial Consult so we can make sure your needs fit my methods.

Or… you may be chomping at the bit to see results as soon as possible. If so, keep reading to find out how this service can help you achieve your business goals.

How It Works

We’ll get started after you schedule your virtual session, complete a detailed questionnaire (regarding your current challenges, long-term goals, & business risks), and provide payment.

What to Expect

During your session, I will serve as a Devil’s Advocate, helping to reveal possible fears, blind spots, and barriers that could be keeping your business from growing.

(Read this for examples of financial barriers.)

Just to warn you—I’m laser-focused and direct. My goal is to find out the logic of WHY your business may not be seeing results. Some of my questions might feel personal and uncomfortable. However, I do this because the most effective way to understand your business is by inviting a Devil’s Advocate to evaluate what is going well and what is not.

Coaching sessions are done by phone or Skype.

After the call, I will send you a recap of what we discussed along with general tools, strategies, and next steps to keep moving toward your business goals.

I may offer suggestions for how to:

  • develop your leadership strengths
  • understand your decision-making process
  • detect business vulnerabilities and blind spots
  • prioritize your weekly tasks
  • calculate your net profit
  • identify your Ideal Customers
  • select a niche area that fits your unique situation
