How it Works: After a session is purchased I send out a detailed questionnaire so I can get as much background on you as possible. After I have reviewed your responses and thoroughly researched your online presence we connect by skype/phone and go over your needs. I can provide you with tangible plans of action to accomplish your music related goals. For artists I am able to speak from first-hand experience about how to expose your music to a wider audience. For executives I can advise you on the politics of working with art and how to create more opportunities for you and your clients. I also provide professional music industry contacts that I personally know and can introduce you to.
What does a Coaching Session usually Cover? It covers a wide range of topics that vary based on your individual needs. Coaching is usually related to helping you solve the problems that arise when growing your business. I can advise you on how to achieve growth with the resources you currently have at your disposal and how best to approach the many gatekeepers you will encounter along the way.
