Let’s chat and make sure we are a good fit for each other.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! We can chat about the payments and agree on a payment plan that works for you.
Do you offer refunds?
Do to the nature of coaching, all payments are non-refundable. Private coaching is a big commitment of energy from myself and my client and that is something that a price tag cannot be put on.Each client will receive specialized care, concern and coaching for her individual needs and for that reason, all sales are final.
When will the calls take place?
After we have our consultation call, and we agree that we are the perfect fit for each other, we will then go through the booking process. After contract is signed and retainer fee is paid, we will schedule out all of your allotted calls. If you cannot keep your call for what ever reason, a 24 hour notice is requested and expected.
When I first decided to be a bridal makeup artist I spent a great deal of time honing my skills - as an artist and business woman. I was trying to be an exact replica of my mentor at that time. I didn't take into account that she had worked in the industry over 15 years, or the fact that she worked her business full time. All I saw was success and I knew I wanted it.
Trying to be like her did not fit me well. It was like trying to fit a round peg in a square hole. And the more it didn't work the more I forced it. About 4 years into my bridal makeup business I realized "I am not happy."
I'm on the computer ALL the time.
My husband is frustrated and feels he is playing second fiddle in my life.
I feel like I am spending my time with clients I don't want to work with.
My dog hadn't gotten a walk from me in who knows how long.
When was the last time I read a book or went to the movies?
We aren't even gonna talk about how often I was working out or cooking.
I realized I couldn't continue like this. But I had no idea how to make the change. I realized when I wanted to start my business I invested in a mentor - and I started my business. When I wanted to become a better artist I invested in an artist coach. My skills improved so much I felt comfortable posting my pictures without editing them first. And now I wanted to have balance in my life - I needed a coach to show me how.
Investing in a 6 month program that helped me learn how to place systems in my business so I wasn't working all the time was HUGE. I also learned how to find and speak to my ideal clients. I was showing my value and charging for it.
That was almost 3 years ago. Now I take a limited amount of bridal clients, so I have plenty of time with my family (and myself) on the weekend and evenings. I am very happy in my life and I don't feel like I am stretched too far.
