Choose Your Own Adventure

 

All consultations occur via videoconferencing calls. Each call contains tailored action items for your business goals. Because they are foundational elements of running a successful business, it is not abnormal to discuss the emotional and psychological factors involved in your business strategy. 

I have a very limited availability for new consulting clients, so get started now before it's too late...

 

1. Private Session

After filling out your application and paying for your appointment, you'll receive a payment link. I will follow-up with a personal welcome email with a scheduling link to put something in the calendar. At your first session, we'll continue to discuss your unique project/product/passion and the scope involved in our client/consultant relationship.

Please note: we both need to know if it's the right fit to work together, so payment of one session does not reserve a regular spot in my consulting calendar. However if we are a match, you can reserve weekly or monthly sessions.

Those who retain ongoing weekly services after an initial 6 weeks see significant improvement and ease to their overall bravery and/or running their business. 

2. Group Session

After filling out your application and paying for your appointment, you'll receive the secret videoconference link to join the next class offered. In the session, 4-6 attendees ask their questions for a mini-consult. All attendees are required to stay for the full session to take advantage of learning from others' questions & solutions.

You can attend these once, weekly, or monthly.

Current Scheduled Group Classes: (Calculate international timezones here.)

  • Most Saturdays 5pm EST / 4pm CST / 3pm MST / 2pm PST 
  • Most Thursdays 8pm EST / 7pm CST / 6pm MST / 5pm PST

3. Website Audit

For folks who have a website and want it to become a powerful, automatic, badass tool for their business. 

After scheduling your 60-minute website audit appointment, you'll submit an intake form with all the need-to-know questions about your business goals and website. The $200 is then credited to your next weekly calls should you decide to continue with creative consulting.

Case Studies

 

Assurance & Peace of Mind

Rebecca Hass reached out to me about several new business ideas she had. I knew from how she talked about her music students and other creative freelance projects and services that she was ready to embrace her multi-potentiality!

We discussed how to determine whether a new venture was worth her precious time and resources. We made a list of ways she can find her ideal audience and made a game plan for her next career steps, all within 60 minutes!

She says...

"In just one session, Emily Ann gave me a different perspective on how to view my ideal customer, new ideas about how to approach my people, and presented marketing in a very real, genuine way."

Courage to Encounter Massive Business Transitions

Janet Haney: Author/Speaker & Retail Business

Janet Haney came to me after self-publishing a gem of a memoir which told her story of losing her nine-year old son, witnessing her husband lose his battle to cancer, and surviving breast cancer with only her daughter by her side who later left to go to college -- hence the book title: Hello Nobody: Standing at the Door Alone What to do When Everything Changes. Over the course of several weeks, we created a website, a press kit, and more for her book release.

After the dust settled, she recognized what she really needed help doing was selling her other retail business. She’d owned a little knitting shop for over 12 years and it was time to move on, but saying goodbye was terrifying. What would life look like if she closed the shop? Where would that little community go?

Together over 6 months, Janet and I created successful plans for tying off all the loose ends and mustering up the courage to take big steps. Because our work together was founded upon her calling and creative curiosity, we sold her business to a loyal customer!

Today she's aiming her creative energies toward public speaking and teaching creative writing workshops to people undergoing big life transitions. Keep your eyes peeled for more of her awesomeness!

She Says...

Bravery has many faces.  It peeks out from under the covers of circumstances and wants to be seen, but fear chokes out our brave parts.  Fear grabs us by the heart and mind and tells us lies that are easily believed. It’s a blanket that wraps itself around us and holds on tightly.  Fear won’t let bravery shine.  

Sometimes we need help to pull away the covering of fear and find the courage to be brave and sometimes that help is a person: Emily Ann is that one.

Bravery begins one step at a time.  As it's given the soil of courage and understanding, bravery blooms inside us and becomes large enough to walk under.  I needed help to do that, and if you do too, this is the place to start. You can discover the gift hiding inside you just waiting to be uncovered.

Bravery can be learned.  Here’s a chance to discover how.

Nurturing Community with a Crystal Clear Cause

Life With Herpes: Podcast & Community

Alexandra Harbushka and I began working together when she decided to start a movement and community around breaking the stigma of living with herpes. Her cause was clear but her tribe’s real problems were more subtle. Not only that, but her marketing strategy needed to respect the privacy of her community. Because parts of her community are “still in the closet,” this meant she couldn’t use social media with the same expectations as other business owners.

So together we unveiled how her own story of life with herpes could provide her tribe with invaluable resources and services. She and I created and refined her main marketing funnel, sales pages, and her podcast’s website attracting community members that are ready to become her biggest fan and customers. We created a visual brand around the vivacity and excitement she promises her Life With Herpes community.

Today we continue our work together by tweaking and adjusting her marketing to create high-converting, authentic interactions between herself and her community.

She Says...

Emily Ann is a breath of fresh air and is always full of new ideas. She is multifaceted when it comes to her talents. I believe her magic formula is that she is a musician and a songwriter. Emily Ann knows how to craft her message through her music and her creativity and then transform it to a marketing plan or a brand.  Those talents are extremely helpful when it comes to creating your brand, copy or content for your audience. Not only is she creative but she is also able to look at your business and help you become very systematized which helps your clients' user experience.

Emily Ann has helped me tremendously when it comes to presenting my message in a very clear and concise way that my audience will understand, in a way that they like and they want to come back. I know that my brand would not be consistent throughout all the areas of my business if it was not for Emily Ann's unique eye. I am grateful for her talents and of course our time together.

Simple Steps to Putting Yourself Online

mandytroxel.jpeg

Fellow singer/songwriter, Mandy Troxel, asked me to help unfreeze her website fears. We chatted for a bit and realized that she was only a few, simple steps away from joining the 21st century! Within a couple conversations, she was up and running!

She says...

I knew I was out of the woods!

Finding your voice is not an easy thing. Self-promotion is even stickier. Put the two together and, if you're like me, you've created the perfect storm of overwhelm. Emily has rock-solid understanding of all things self-promotion, as well as an uncanny ability to break down even the most intimidating hurdles into manageable action items. Thirty minutes with Emily Ann literally turned months of disheartened procrastination regarding my own website on its heels. When Emily Ann heard my excuses and then said "Let's just get this done!" I knew I was out of the woods!

Emily Ann is a straight-talker with a smile. If I am working with someone, I don't want to just get sweet talked. I want someone who is insightful AND unflinchingly honest, even if it means calling me out on my own self-sabotage - whether it's denial, procrastination or emotional roadblocks. I know that I can count on Emily Ann to tell it to me straight. And usually she smiles while she does this, which of course means I don't even catch on at first to how she is totally calling me out. I love this. This makes me get to the heart of the matter so much more quickly, whether it's honing in on the goals of a project or trying hard to see something through to the end. If I need a hand zeroing in on a goal or needing a plan as to how to break down a project into manageable action items, I call Emily Ann.
