WHAT IS A BRAND AND BUSINESS COACH?
A coach is someone who has been where you are, has experienced what you're experiencing, and knows the tools that you need to reach your goals. A coach is an outside perspective that can see clearly into your brand, because a lot of times we are so attached to our own work that we lose the clarity that we need to see what steps we should take next.
When I first started photography, I felt eager to learn, but I also felt frustrated. It was as though the top photographers had a secret that I couldn't quite figure out. Through endless late nights of researching, years of learning in-camera techniques, and 6 years of running a wedding photography business of my own, I finally know what those secrets are. THERE ARE NO SECRETS. The path to success is through knowledge and putting that knowledge to work. What took me 6 years to develop, I can help you achieve in a shorter amount of time just by pointing you in the right direction as someone who has experienced where you are. I have developed the eye for branding and can help you gain clarity for your brand's message. I believe every photographer has a story to tell, and it's the ones who learn how to tell their story that stand out among the rest. As a brand coach, it is my passion to help you succeed. I do this through sharing the knowledge that I have gained through studying the industry and art.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I SHOULD INVEST IN A COACH?
...feel stuck in a rut of where to go next.
...see work that you admire and wish that you could get to that place.
...are unsure of what your brand's message is and are not clear on what your photography style might be.
...are looking to take your photography business to the next level.
....can't afford not to.
HOW DOES WORKING WITH A BUSINESS COACH WORK?
STEP ONE -The first step to working with me is to set up a free 30 minute introductory call. There are NO obligations to booking. The intro call is where I get to know you as a photographer. It allows me to hear more about how you got started, where you are in your business, why you feel that you need a coach, and what topics are causing the most set backs.
STEP TWO- After our call, I will send an outline of my suggestions for what coaching topics I think you could benefit from the most for your business.
STEP THREE- Book me and receive your first official assignment to complete: The Coaching Questionnaire. This questionnaire gives me an even deeper look into what areas are your strengths, weaknesses, and what hobbies you like. Yes! I even like to know what you like to do in your spare time.
STEP FOUR- Your weekly coaching sessions begin and we dive into the topics outlined from our call. You will receive assignments to complete after each session creating actions that allow you to take steps in your new direction.
STEP FIVE - Once our coaching sessions are complete, I follow up after one month to hear your progress. I am passionate about your business and I want to stay updated on your wins and struggles.
