Organising & Clarifying your Ideas

Words & Communicating your Message to your Clients

Which Season is your Business in?

Winter: Winter is a time of deep inner work, reflection and awareness. Our focus here is around forming your vision for your lifestyle and business, connecting with your mission, your values, your message you want to share with the world. We will then put your project ideas into order (courses, workshops, digital products, 1-to-1 offerings, all the ideas!!) and choose which part of your business to focus on and accelerate first.

Spring: During Spring, we create the trunk of your business. We get clarity on who you serve, which problem(s) you solve and we create a solution that your ideal clients will love. We do this be researching your ideal client, conducting interviews and validating your ideas with facts. We work on the wording, we choose the price point and the features of the service you offer. We work to communicate your unique brand and essence and we prepare a professional online presence for clients to find you.

Summer: During Summer, we tell people about your amazing offer. There are so many ways to “advertise” your services (social media, YouTube, ads, networking, posters, events, talks, podcasts, blogging, collaborations, webinars etc). How to choose the most effective way for your business to be visible online? If you’ve done your deep dive work in understanding your ideal client, you will know exactly which platforms your ideal client spends time on & you’ll work to build relationships with ideal clients there. We will also ensure that a flow of new eyes are seeing you too (traffic) and that there’s a clear path for them to check you out and work with you (conversion). I can also teach you all things tech and help with your confidence around visibility during this phase too.

Autumn: Autumn is when you are enjoying the harvest but know that a new cycle is coming for which you want to prepare. You are serving clients and gaining a lot of client experience. We will tweak your processes to ensure amazing client results and satisfaction. We will optimise your systems so that client attraction becomes more automated. Once your current offering feels like it’s flowing with ease, you will then move into a new cycle of Winter to start creating your next offering.

Please note:

Most people come to me thinking they need help with the Summer season (a.k.a. I need clients right now). But they haven’t done the Winter or Spring work which means they don’t know their niche, their offer isn’t clear or validated, there isn’t a clear path to work with them and so they end up just making noise online and nothing converts.

Therefore, my work is centred around building the solid foundations of Winter and Spring and creating one strong offer to bring forward to Summer.

My Holistic Approach is a blend of Coaching & Mentoring

  • Your Answers Are Within You: My approach is to combine coaching and mentoring. In coaching, I ask you questions and to truly hear you. I facilitate you getting insights. I combine coaching with mentoring so you also benefit from my experience and knowledge. I offer you ideas, perspectives and options to fill in he practical gaps to empower you.
  • An Inside-Out Approach to Business Model: Instead of trying to fit into a business model that some guru recommends, I believe we should build our business from the inside out- listening to our inner guidance for our mission and using our natural gifts for how best to bring this forth.
  • Business is an Opportunity for Personal Development: I believe entrepreneurship is a great opportunity to grow by trying new things, to practice moving through fear in a practical way, to develop shadow parts of yourself to become a more rounded person. It’s an opportunity to grow in self-awareness and develop your relationship with yourself and with life. When viewed through this lens, the challenges we face in our business become opportunities to grow and learn.
  • We need to Honour our Nervous System in Business: There’s a fine line between growth opportunities and overwhelming your nervous system. I believe we need to take very good care of ourselves along this path and develop positive habits around energy management and self-care as business-owners.
  • No Sleazy or Unethical Tactics: There are a lot of marketing tactics that are quite simply unethical and that is why our impression of marketing is that it is “selling your soul”. I do no support or advocate these tactics. I teach heart-centred (&very effective!) ways of business and marketing. Please read more here.

Client Session Examples

  • Working through a list of practical questions a client had about “all the things” she couldn’t figure out about starting a business. Screen-sharing practical info as we went along and identifying the right solutions for her in her situation with her tech ability.
  • Overcoming comparison and shiny object syndrome by looking at what the client’s version of success is- her values, her vision for her lifestyle, her vision for her business, her mission. Foundations for staying in her own lane.
  • Rewording a client’s webpage describing her services, tweaking her offer, viewing her page with fresh eyes and improving her ideal client’s user experience by clarifying and ironing out details, building rapport and adding authority.
  • Untangling the details of a client’s group programme and mapping it into a google document sales page for her to continue clarifying before she downloads it as a PDF to share with interested people.
  • Niching fun! Drawing out of the client the arc of the journey clients take by working with her- before and after. Articulating her approach and thereby identifying what makes her stand out from the crowd. Helping the client to see herself and her strengths more clearly by listening and reflecting back to her. We captured all of this in a google doc while we worked together so she can refer back to it. Please note that niching clarity is big work and can take a few sessions to fully solidify it.
  • Helping a client who felt really frustrated by not moving forward in his business. To identify where his time is going, we got him time tracking into his calendar. Then we identified how he would like to be spending his time each week and blocked time in his calendar for these each week. He can move them around as he pleases, but they represent how he wants to allocate his time in alignment with what a successful and balanced life & business look like for him.
