(Please read before hiring Ann as your Marketing & Mindset Coach)
How Long have you been doing what you do and how did you get to be a
Marketing and Mindset expert?
To answer this question, it’s best that I share with you my background and the 2 defining moments that brought me to where I am today – coaching people just like you on exactly what to do to market your business, breakthrough your existing mindset and attract your ideal clients on a consistent basis.
The first defining moment came upon my awakening on my 50th birthday. I was struck with the what I call “Is that all there is?” complex. Nothing was wrong. I was at the pinnacle of my career as an art director and graphic designer. I was an award winning designer and working at Vogue Magazine, in New York City, for God Sakes!!! I was in a 7-year relationship that was loving and supportive. Perhaps it was that I saw that half my life had been spent pursuing success, awards and accolades for myself. It was a “so what, now what” world that I woke up into that day. It was as if The Universe was challenging me to step up.
I submerged myself in studying mindset and personal development with all of the greats, Tony Robbins, Werner Erhard, Joe Vitale, DC Cordova, Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, Carolyn Myss, Jerry and Esther Hicks…the list goes on and on. I didn’t know why, but I was compelled to uncover the mystery inside me.
The second defining moment was after I lost my marketing job. There I was again, wondering “Is that all there is — struggling to sell and get clients?”. This time was different. This time I had a deep foundation, a “knowing” that this is The Universe sending me an opportunity. What I realized was that I wanted to give away all of my knowledge in a very practical, result-producing way. I made a commitment to immerse myself in absolutely everything to do with marketing and attracting clients. I started studying everything I could get my hands on, reading tons of books, listening to tapes in my car incessantly and working with marketing and client attraction mentors and experts. I call my approach “From the WooWoo to the How To”.
I have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping other women entrepreneurs who are self-employed, sole practitioners with a purpose, to get more clients, make more money and have a lot more fun doing it! — through my workshops, programs and coaching.
Since then I have worked and coached with hundreds of private clients, spoken in front of countless groups, and have created a 7-Step Irresistible Marketing & Mindset System that helps entrepreneurs get more clients, make more money and have a lot more fun in their business and their life.
Who are your clients exactly?
I work with women just like you, women with private practices and other self-employed, independent professionals who are really good at what they do. However they have never been taught exactly how to market, attract clients or set up systems so they can attract clients on a consistent basis. That being said, the professions I’ve worked with include:
Acupuncturists, Aromatherapy Practitioners,
Business Consultants, Editors and Writers,
Fitness Experts, Graphic Designers,
Holistic Health Counselors, Interior Designers,
Massage Therapists, Personal Trainers,
Photographers, Professional Organizers,
Professional Pet Sitters, Real Estate Agents & Investors,
Reiki Practitioners, Singer-Song Writers,
Spiritual Counselors, Therapists
What happens if you haven’t yet worked with someone in my field?
I have worked with hundreds of clients in a wide range of private practice and independent industries. Most likely, I have worked with someone in your field. And, I have to share with you that if I haven’t, it is to your advantage. What do I mean by that? Well, people in your field are probably ALL doing the same types of marketing things to attract new clients. What my current and past clients have found exceedingly helpful is that I bring a fresh creative perspective to their Irresistible Marketing / client attraction process and give them resources they have never heard of, spiked with my unique perspective. Because of this, they stand out and distinguish themselves authentically in an overcrowded marketplace and are the ones who start getting the clients.
How are you different from other “business coaches?”
We will sometimes touch upon time management and prioritizing tasks, that business coach-y stuff, but you have me as your own creative genius and marketing expert. I ONLY work with solo-entrepreneurs and successful small businesses. Put another way, I don’t consult with people in mid-sized companies or large corporations and I’m a specialist in client attraction and mindset. I am not a “I do it all Gal”. Because my focus is so narrow, what you get with me is a concentrated expertise of in-the-trenches techniques that really work for independent professionals. I have simply become an expert in this stuff and add my own special brand of compassion, support, humor, fun, encouragement and inspiration, which is sooo necessary for success!
What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?
These Irresistible Marketing & Mindset workshops and programs were created for women, just like you, who are absolutely passionate and committed about getting more clients and ending what is called “roller-coaster of anxiety”. You know the are days you are loving having lots of clients and then the days of freaking out not having enough of them….waking up in the middle of the night and saying “how am I going to make it?”. These coaching programs were created for you to put systems in place and lock them in with habits (your mindset) within a few months. Which will build your marketing machine and eventually lead you to getting all the clients you need in record time. Not the traditional time of three, four or five years that is expected to get a full practice.
Being a high achieving go-getter and “Results Junky” myself, I am known to work best with other high achieving go-getters who are willing to be “Unstoppable” and get going fast and just want to know exactly what steps to take to get clients.
Consider what you’ll do with me in this accelerated-action-learning course. You will be expected to take responsible consistent action. Be Unstoppable (an Excuse-Free Zone) taking your life and your business seriously with full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal: more clients, more money and having more fun doing it! (in record time).
For what type of professional is this program NOT going to work?
Please know I am very selective with who I work and I cherry-pick my clients; Choosing to gently turn away people who aren’t ready or suited for my programs. Because they won’t get the results that they signed up for (that is just not OK with me).
The Irresistible Marketing programs are NOT for those who have no income and are absolutely, financially desperate. It’s been my experience that people in a financial crisis do not trust the recommendations I give them and struggle to do the work. Probably because they are so concerned and worried about how they are going to pay next months rent or mortgage payment. If you fall into this category, it’s absolutely OK. There is nothing wrong with you (I’ve been there too). Do (3) things for yourself:
1. Get some money coming in with a full-time or a part-time job, and then call me. At the very least, this will take the edge off and provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly, it will quiet your mind enough allowing you to focus on your Irresistible Marketing assignments and your BIGGER Vision. Once you start getting more clients as a result of our work together, you can start reducing the hours you work your job and focus on your own practice.
2. Sign up for the Free Irresistible Marketing and Mindset Tools over email (Click here to subscribe) The free information will get you started towards your goals until you are ready to work with me one-on-one.
3. Make it a point to listen to the Free tele-class seminars that you will find posted at the bottom of the e-zine.
Doing these things aligns you with something I teach – “Impeccable Self-Care” and will really prepare you for our work. When you are ready, call me and we’ll get you started. I am here for you when you are ready.
Another type of person I won’t work with (without exception) is the whiner or chronic skeptic (the Negative Nellie’s and Ms. Dead-Heads) You know the one’s who consistently make excuses and rationalize not getting their assignments done or challenge every aspect of the program. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why. We probably just wouldn’t work well together and I would not want you to waste your time or your money. Isn’t that fair?
