Why should you consider signing up for my BUILD programme?

1.  Because it’s tailored to your specific requirements.

I tailor the programme components, and the tools and templates we use to your specific needs. Whichever type of support helps you build the fastest and most effective momentum is where we focus our time and energy and my hands-on input. I’ll help you scope the right plan to build your business or creative work, and we’ll implement programme elements that support it, setting you up for accelerated progress and success.  

2.  Because it’s exciting and inspiring.

This is all about helping you build the business or creative work you dream of so that you have the freedom to do meaningful, fulfilling, enjoyable work on your own terms. I actively show you how to turn your idea into a reality. We bust myths, remove roadblocks, create a plan, activate it and get you moving. Not only is it exciting, but it’s also a fun-filled, engaging and confidence-boosting ride.

3.  Because it works.

This process is tried and tested. It utilises the blueprint I’ve proved and used to help many solopreneurs get their businesses or creative work off the ground.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I’m not sure what type of business I want to build?

My IDENTIFY programme is designed for you. Check out the details here.

How do you determine what type of support I need?

Before we get started, we’ll do a 30-minute background call, plus I’ll send you a questionnaire to fill out, which scopes out what stage you are at, where you want to get to and what’s currently missing. I’ll then design a programme with key components that match your needs, which we’ll discuss and agree before our first coaching session.

How advanced does my business or creative work idea have to be before it’s worth engaging you to help me?

It can literally be an idea. As long as you are passionate about it and committed to doing the work required to move it forward, you’re ready. I always design programmes to suit the stage you’re at and will focus on the components that will help you build the greatest momentum.

What kind of writing support do you provide?

I write value propositions, scope out specific offers, draft website copy, write pitches to agents, and draft emails that engage contacts in peoples’ networks. I spent 20 years in PR and communications, which means I genuinely know how to create and communicate information in a coherent and compelling way. Writing and designing persuasive content is second nature to me.
