Blueprint Sessions

DEAR…YOU:

The internet is inundated with wannabe-business gurus swearing that you can oh-so-easily make six-figures in your sweatpants while balancing your toddler on your lap.

Mmmm-hmmm.

I’m not going to promise you that. Why? Because I think people who pretend like those things are easy…are liars.

There. Finally. Someone said it.

Here’s who I am: I’m the life coach who’s just like you. I love coaching, I love my clients, and I wanted to figure out how to quit my salaried job so that I could make money doing what I love. I have a kid (nine months old), and she definitely doesn’t peacefully sit on my lap to give me time to work–I’ve had to figure out some work-arounds to keep my business going, while also being a mom.

Just like you, I wanted to run my business, my way.

Just like you, I started with zero followers, zero clients, and zero dollars.

Just like you, I want to live my values when I run my business. I don’t want to do things that feel slickster and inauthentic to make my business work.

Just like you, I don’t want to scream with my marketing.

Just like you, I’m short on time and need to implement strategies that get real results.

DEAR YOU: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BECOME A USED CAR SALESMAN TO MAKE A COACHING PRACTICE FINANCIALLY LUCRATIVE.

This is not an empty promise. You can build your business, your way.

However, you do need to hire the right people to help guide you through the process.

And yes, I’m suggesting…moi. I just might be your “right person.”

Stop hanging out in the “muddling place.”

If you’ve only got a a few clients here and there, launches that aren’t gaining traction, and uncertainty about how your business is going to build from one year to the next, you’re in the “muddling place.” You know some things, but you need someone experienced who can see the broad view of what you’re trying to create.

I work with a select number of clients on very specific tasks. This isn’t “Let’s hop on the phone and talk about how scary it is to work for yourself.”

This is–

  • You know something just isn’t quite working about your website? Let’s go through each page and get clear on what works.
  • You want to launch a new e-book? Here’s how you do that and get phenomenal results.
  • You want to bring in more clients? Here’s how you do that without having to work twice as hard.

When it comes to business, results are where it’s at. Let’s work together in a business coaching capacity to create strategies that convert to cash, all without resorting to mucky marketing tactics that don’t feel good.

Pre-requisite? Have a functional website and blog. Don’t worry; it need not be a great website (in fact, you’d rather talk to me before you pay your designer another cent).

 

“IT’S GREAT TO KNOW I’VE GOT A SOLID, WORKABLE PLAN NOW.”

I’ve started implementing the actions we discussed – the website’s had a bit of a makeover, there’s a new ‘cookie’ with a cleaner, simpler homepage, menu structure and message. I’ve had two guest posts accepted and I’m planning on submitting guest posts on a regular, minimum of two a month basis. I’ve set up the initial auto-responder series and will be adding more. There’s still so much richness in the call we had that I’m listening to it again to pull out all of the juicy bits and actions – but it’s great to know that I’ve a solid, workable plan now.” –Jo Casey, JoCasey.com


“THIS IS THE BEST MONEY YOU WILL SPEND ON YOUR BUSINESS.”

“Over the course of my Blueprint Session she worked her magic and was able to show me:

  • exactly where and why I was struggling,
  • prioritize what I needed to do to course correct in order to reach my goals,
  • and give me both the high-level strategy and the nuts and bolts practical tools and resources I needed to get exactly where I wanted to go.

I seriously don’t know what I would have done without her.

This is the best money you will spend on your business, hands down.
—Margo Brockman, Interchange Counseling

 

What we cover:

You decide what our top priorities are when you fill out the pre-session questions, but here are a few things that life coaches typically want to work on when they hire me for business coaching:

  • Clarifying the most important messages for your coaching pages and offerings
  • Evaluating your pricing and packages and looking out for blind spots where your positioning might be prohibiting clients from working with you.
  • Strategies for bringing more traffic to your website, and then–most importantly–converting that traffic to people who are excited to work with you.
  • Building your newsletter list and social media platforms (in ways that feel natural, and not overwhelming!)
  • Creating a plan for regular blog and newsletter content, even when you aren’t sure what to say and you’re feeling really short on time.
  • Making the connection between your vision for your practice and offerings that go beyond one-on-one coaching: passive income, workshops, retreats, and more.

 

INVEST, AND YE SHALL RECEIVE. HERE’S WHAT IS INCLUDED:

  • Get immediate access to The Blueprint Pre-Session questions. The process will get you focused and clear. The download link is available as soon as you confirm your registration.

Blueprint Sessions Reviews

“So what I got was so much more than a 90 minute coaching call. I was so impressed with the amount of care you’d put into the preparation – the blueprint pre-session questionnaire was so well thought out and smart that I got a ton of learning from completing that alone.  I was also impressed with the fact that you followed up with me via email before the call to clarify anything you were unsure about and really understand where I was coming from. 

That call itself was great – I found it gave me so much clarity about my next steps and a real sense that this was do-able. I felt esteemed, supported and stretched afterwards – which is exactly what I needed. 

I also had a real sense that you’d taken the time to get to know ‘me’ – by which I mean who I am, what my values, goals and ambitions are, where I am now and where I want to get to. You gave me a sensation of being seen and heard for who i am – not for who a ‘marketer’ might want me to be. You took the time, put in the care and gave me a real esteeming, stretching and empowering experience – which IMHO, is just how coaching should be!.

I came away with a clearer sense of who I was and what I was trying to do, with the added knowledge that someone else who was walking their talk and much further along the path than I was thought what I was doing was not only worth pursuing but showed me ways of expanding and growing in directions I would never have thought of myself. I felt I’d had the benefit of spending time with someone who was incredibly perceptive, intuitive and BS free. I came away with strategies, and an added enthusiasm for my business. 

It was a real privilege to work with you. I’ve started implementing the actions we discussed – the website’s had a bit of a makeover, there’s a new ‘cookie’ with a cleaner, simpler homepage, menu structure and message. I’ve had 2 guest posts accepted and I’m planning on submitting guest posts on a regular, minimum of 2 a month basis. I’ve set up the initial auto-responder series and will be adding more to it over the next few weeks.  There’s still so much richness in the call we had that I’m listening to it again to pull out all of the juicy bits and actions – but it’s great to know I’ve a solid, workable plan now. 

Thank you again and I’m really looking forward to working with you again soon.”

“Hanging up the phone after my Blueprint Session I felt energized and confident! During the call, I could feel Kate’s enthusiasm for working with me and the care that she had taken in preparing for our session.

She helped me to concretely define the unique perspective and message I have to offer as a coach and advised me on how to tie that message to a brand that looks and feels like me. She gave me practical actions and personal exercises to help me create the coaching business I want. Working through The Coaching Blueprint and now my Blueprint Session, Kate has been the best resource I’ve found for starting out in the coaching business!”

–Kaitlyn Sullivan, Life Coach



“I was in the process of redesigning my website and wanted input to expand the outreach of an already successful business. It was so helpful to have Kate’s fresh eyes give input about all that I have created, including my website, from a ‘big picture’ point of view. I came away from the Blueprint Session with a sense of validation of what is working, new inspiration, and a multitude of practical and creative suggestions tailored specifically to what I do. All from a skilled, knowledgeable, and forthright professional who followed through and gave more than expected in a generous, open-hearted way.

I have been highly recommending her to my colleagues.” –Jeannie Campanelli, Inner Confidence Coaching



“If you want to be less overwhelmed by all the choices that face you, Kate is an experienced guide who will lead you gently and firmly to a place of clear direction. There is not one thing I disliked about my Blueprint session. It was worth every penny, every moment.”

–Bob Beverley, Psychotherapist, Find Wisdom Now
