How We Work

Sometimes a client wants all the writing done for them, and sometimes they want to do it themselves, but need guidance.  We provide either, based on your special circumstances.  As a coach/consultant we can assess your current business and advise regarding marketing (all aspects, from website verbiage and social media/blog writing to traditional marketing collateral), business planning, or human resources.  A+ can also create a business resume or bio.  Contact us today to discuss your needs.

Let Our Experience Be Your Guide

Get Your First Consultation Free!

A truly successful business is prepared.  They will possess a business plan, marketing plan, resume (for small business owners, or for each executive/board member, for clients to view), a bio, portfolio, website, social media participation, financial tracking, processes for a variety of business needs, and constant review of all of the above.

Certainly, many companies make money without a formal plan for their business, or the basics of marketing, tracking their revenues, or established processes, but they are leaving money on the table.  This isn’t just about creating efficiency, it’s about having the processes in place to weather the hard times, to take advantage of the good times, to know when new products or services should be added, to plan for hiring employees or contract labor, and when to get help because you simply can’t do it all!

The most popular and productive athletes, actors and actresses, and musicians hire coaches and experts to better prepare not only for today, but for the future.  There is always room for improvement, or a need for assistance in some area.  Whether you are just starting a business, or you are an established business and looking to improve your current operations; business and marketing coaching is for you.
