We make your work — and your life — simpler, more productive, and more enjoyable

  

 
 
 
 
 
 

about us

Our job is to make your job—and your life—better. Think of us as catalysts for the changes you want to make in business and in life. You could spend years trying to power through professional and personal challenges on your own, but with our help, you can accomplish many of your goals in a few months. 

We serve a diverse group of individuals and businesses throughout North America who value collaboration and support as part of their path to success. 

Our clients have included entrepreneurs, nonprofits (environmental groups, arts groups), artists (writers, actors, entertainers), research institutes, general contractors,  plumbing contractors, small-scale manufacturers, students, massage therapists, and publishers. What all these individuals and businesses have in common is the strong desire to take their work to the next level, and the recognition that their work improves when they actively seek professional and personal support. 

When we work with businesses, we specialize in creative, results-oriented solutions to organization, growth, and productivity challenges.

When we work with individuals, we help them identify their goals, values and aspirations, and then find concrete ways to make those ideals a reality. 

We take on projects big and small, from helping an entrepreneur turn a new idea into a profitable online business (including creating a website, building a thriving online community, establishing a store, and more) to helping a job-seeker compose a solid resumé.

Our Services

 
 

Workflow Consulting

We specialize in setting up simple, user-friendly systems that make life easier for you and your employees. Get your calendar in order. Keep up with incoming emails. Communicate effectively with your customers and employees. Grow your business sustainably. This sometimes takes the form of consulting and advising, and it sometimes means we'll jump into a role at your business for a few months to get things in order. Let's customize the best way for us to work with you. 

 

Marketing and social media Strategy

We help you optimize your marketing plan, including your website, your direct contact with clients, and your social media channels, to meet your audience, branding, and sales needs. Small businesses often hear that social media is now the key to marketing. That may be true in many cases, but what will best serve your business? We think social media is best utilized as part of a wider marketing strategy. We'll help you determine the best strategy for your needs and your audience, whether that includes website, direct emails, or select social channels. (Little-known fact: not every business needs a social media presence. If you don't need it, we'll tell you so, even if that means we talk ourselves out of a job.)  

Writing

We can help tell your story, in your voice, to your audience. Maybe you need a few posts to get your business's blog started (or reinvigorated). Maybe you're looking for lively product descriptions for your online store. Whatever your writing needs—blogging, website content, catalog development, ghost writing—we're here to help. 

 

Coaching 

We can help you align your work, your health, your relationships, and your priorities, to help you attain your ideal future. We will create strategies and practice new ways to manage any fears and doubts that have been holding you back. When our work is complete, your life will be more in line with your true values, and you will have gained new perspectives and strategies to continue using on your own. Learn more about coaching

 

Our clients often have a good sense of where they want to be in their businessES And in their personal lives, but they are often unsure how to get there. We are a bridge that connects where you are now with where you want to be.
