Business is risky. And while I love using my experiences and the experiences of countless other entrepreneurs I know, have worked with, and have drank endless rounds of mimosas with, business is still risky. So my advice doesn’t come with any guarantees. You get that, right? Cool. Oh, and if you need professional help, consider hiring a branding, marketing, or business consultant (like us!). By visiting this site, you’re essentially signing a contract that says that you understand that I make no guarantees, and you won’t try to sue me or report me to the business police. Because that? Would be awkward.
The complimentary advice provided herein is based on me taking a quick look, sans magnifying glass, as a favor--and not the usual review and analysis of all documents and factors that I would consider when working with you as a traditional paid client. (You also miss out on my witty emails and me showering you with compliments.) That said, my advice and opinion are taken into account at your own risk, but for a proper analysis, hire a lawyer/doctor/other licensed professional--preferably one with a fancy certificate on their wall. Because who doesn’t like a fancy certificate?
By participating in any consulting session over the phone/ web, you acknowledge that technology is great, and so are phones/Zoom/video chats. However, they can also be a little, say, limiting. Without consulting with you in person, the dynamics change a little bit, and I can’t conduct the extensive analysis that I would in an in-person, in-office setting. (Or buy you coffee at Starbucks.) The upside? You don’t have to wear any pants. Not a bonus to be taken lightly, of course.
I’m an expert at what I do. I’ve got the street cred. The experience. The skills. And the qualifications. However, we should probably give a group nod to the fact that I am not a licensed psychologist or healthcare professional, and my services don’t replace the care of psychologists or other healthcare professionals. With that comes the standard eye-glaze-inducing disclaimer that, no, I cannot actually guarantee the outcome of our coaching efforts and/or recommendations on my website/blog/email series, and my comments about the outcome are expressions of (my very personal) opinion only. I can guarantee you this, however: I will do my best to coach you, and I’ll do everything in my power to help. That being said, our conversation or any advice I give should not be considered a substitute for an evaluation by a licences attorney or therapist or any other professional help that you might need.
