Doing the work you hate
Think about your work day for just a moment. Do you have a task you hate to do? We all do. Now, ask yourself this: what could I be doing if I didn’t have to do this task? Do I have to do this task? Is it time to replace myself with someone else who can do these overhead duties that keep me from working on the projects, plans and goals I’ve set for myself? If you’re so tied up working in your business that you never have the opportunity to work on your business, I want to help.
How I Work
The most important thing I want to do is to sit with you and learn about your business. What do you do? Why did you get into this business? What are your plans, dreams and goals? I want to know what it is that you’re really passionate about, and how I can help you achieve your dreams. As I learn about your business, possible ways I can assist you will come to light. Or, we might discover you don’t need my services right now. As one colleague put it recently, “I either earn, or I learn.” Either way is good to me. As we discover where I can best serve you, the actual services I might provide will come to light as well. We’ll be able to design a package that is custom to your business, to your needs and to your lifestyle.
