My Partnering Philosophy

My clients choose to take the unique and refreshing approach of getting “the job done” by partnering with me – in turn, I take my commitment to produce results quite seriously.

My relationship with my clients is one of a “partnership” – an extension of their organization, and mines.  A successful relationship is one that is focused and has specific goals in mind.

I truly believe a successful partnership requires commitment by both parties.  Here are some key attributes I look for in my clients to make sure we are a perfect fit so together we can take their business to another level.

My Ideal Client

  • Is a professional Author, Coach, Entrepreneur or Speaker;
  • Has a well established client base and has been in businesses for at least a year;
  • Is not a micro-manager;
  • Can clearly define his/her goals as well as time and money restraints;
  • Can clearly communicate his/her expectations and requirements;
  • Is not sparing of information that is necessary to complete the project;
  • Is available to answer questions;
  • Knows how to voice worries and criticisms;
  • Gives feedback;
  •  and Respects my expertise.

Through a joint commitment, I forge successful partnerships with my clients, and through these partnerships, I am able to enhance my clients businesses and help them achieve all of their goals.
