You’re great at what you do, but can you win the clients you need?

So many small businesses and freelancers are experts at delivering client work. But building a healthy pipeline of clients requires a completely different skillset.

Perhaps you’re just starting out, or perhaps you’ve made some progress so far. But the reality is you need the right approach to build a sustainable and profitable business.

That’s where I come in.

Together we’ll identify your ideal client type and I’ll work with you to build a business development strategy that will meet your financial and lifestyle goals.

If you’re tired of  feeling uncertain, working for low-paying clients, or worrying where the next customer will come from, I am the business coach for you.

Maybe your pricing isn’t where it should be, your services aren’t fully aligned with your ideal clients, or you’re having difficulty building a client base. Perhaps you need some training to develop your team.

I’m the business coach who can help you. With two decades of business development, sales and marketing experience under my belt, as well as five+ years as a successful business owner myself, you can trust I have the skills to take your business to the next level.

Finally, you can move past the self-doubt and enjoy life, and business, on your terms.

The Ethical Business Coach

Based on PACE—performance, attitude, clarity, and eliminating hurdles—my coaching style focuses on helping you uncover your true vision, not giving cookie-cutter advice. I’m currently training with the Ethical Coaching Company to deepen my skills at an IOL-accredited level 5 (aiming for fellowship).

Ethical coaching isn’t just important to me—it’s part of who I am. My approach mixes coaching and training, adapting to what you need, whether that’s clarity, mindset shifts, or practical skills.

This hybrid style has roots in my own journey; I’ve been where you are, having built a six-figure business myself from the ground up. I bring both the theories and the hard-earned lessons of that experience to our sessions, ready to help you confidently navigate your path.
