There are few feelings that can compare to that of accomplishment. When I took my book to its first convention and had total strangers not only understand what I’d created but buy it as well—complete with hugs and high-fives at times—it was my turn to understand that heady feeling of creating something someone else wanted. Even if they didn’t know they wanted it before they found it.
Of course, it wasn’t always like that. I spent three years on the same convention circuit with a collection of my webcomic that did not fare as well. It fared so ill, in fact, that the first show the cookbook went to outsold the 3 years of previous sales in a day and a half!
So I know what it’s like to be on both sides. I know what it’s like to work on something for more than two years without any idea of whether it will succeed or fail. And I know I could not have done it without someone firmly in my corner; a sounding-board, a cheerleader, a shoulder to cry on, and someone to dish out a little tough love when needed.
One thing I’ve tried to do since finding my own way is to share what I’ve learned with others so they don’t have to reinvent the wheel—it’s just what we helper monkeys do! Up until now I’ve written articles and lead panels at conventions. Now I’m opening up a few slots for one-on-one coaching.
Accountability is a fabulous motivator. And, unlike your friends and family members who (generally) want to spare your feelings—sometimes to the detriment of your work-- I can offer an outside perspective and the occasional kick in the pants you may need to keep moving forward, in addition to being your best cheering section.
Once we decide to work together, we’ll talk by phone/Skype calls as well as through emails. You do not have to be here in the south Georgia/north Florida area and we can schedule our live calls for the evenings or on weekends so as not to interfere with a day-job or other commitments.
If this sounds good to you, please reach out through the Contact form so we can figure out the best way to get you to your goals!
If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a single piece of direction, I offer Tarot and Illumination card readings. Similar to coaching, it’s all done via email. Price per reading is $20. Use the button below to order your reading, and put your question or concern in the Notes field on the PayPal cart.
