You hoped that working for yourself would give you the spaciousness you were craving to think and create and honor your natural rhythms.
You knew it wouldn't always be easy to build your own business, but you're willing to bet on yourself.
You feel deeply and want to understand yourself, because you care about your impact.
You actually care about doing the right thing and you put more pressure on yourself than anyone else ever could,
You've taken the courses, tried the "proven" blueprints, you've Googled for how to's, and are pushing through your resistance and self-doubt everyday.
You'd absolutely work for free if you could, but you know you need to make a viable income, so here you are, trying to navigate capitalism.
Having your own business was supposed to make you feel empowered and free, but this doesn’t feel like liberation - in fact, it's exhausting.
You're willing to give everything you've got, but you hold back because you aren't sure how to explain what you do and what's special about it.
You've been following the frameworks and advice of entreprenenurs you admire, but it feels like you're squishing yourself into a box and losing your uniqueness.
You’re good at what you do and your clients love you, but your bank account doesn’t show it because you're not charging enough.
You take on more work to make your clients happy, but you can't keep up and you're frustrated because your business isn't growing.
You've been trying to show up on social media, but you feel insecure and awkward - and it seems like no one really knows the real you.
Everyone thinks you've got it nailed, but inside you feel like a fraud because you aren't totally sure of yourself and often wonder what to do next and you know there's no guarantee that your business won't fail.
...and it's hard to get down to work and focus because your inner critic is hammering you with the meanest comments and just won't. shut. up.
It is Possible.
you can do this too.
I understand what it's like because I've lived it.
I know what it's like to have that desparate "hurry up and learn everything by yesterday" feeling.
I know how mortifying it is when you fumble over your words when somebody askes you about what you do.
I know what it's like to start off doing what you love, and working so hard to build it that it starts to lose it's spark and feel like a job - and how sad it feels when you worry you might have to get a real job.
I'm well-aquainted with that inner critic who says you'll never be able to have the business and lifestyle you really want.
I've been an entrepreneur my whole life and I've built multiple businesses, so I've been there - and I know the joys of running an aligned business.
My current business is my favorite because I've taken everything I've learned over the years - about systems, branding, and marketing - as well as about myself and how I work best - and used it to create the exact business I've always wanted.
You know you're capable.
You KNOW YOU WILL FIND A WAY to figure this out.
YOU KNOW YOU'RE READY TO STOP SPINNING YOUR WHEELS AND CREATE THE EXACT BUSINESS YOU'VE ALWAYS WANTED.
YOU PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE WITHOUT HESITATION
because you're confident in what you offer and can easily explain your work.
YOU'VE BUILT A UNIQUE BUSINESS THAT STANDS OUT
because you finally started listening to yourself and valuing your own ideas and way of working.
YOU CHECK YOUR BANK BALANCE...JUST FOR FUN
because you're finally charging enough for the work you do.
YOU ONLY WORK WITH PEOPLE YOU TRULY ENJOY
because you're in demand, your business is growing, and you know being picky protects you from burning out.
YOU NATURALLY DRAW PEOPLE TO YOU
because you're showing up as yourself and people can finally get to know you and connect with you.
YOU FEEL EXCITED AND ENERGIZED ABOUT WORKING
because your days are in sync with your natural rhythms and you've set yourself up to do the work you really enjoy, on your own terms.

CLARITY - Getting to know yourself. what work you really, truly enjoy, and how you work best. From this we define your offer and business model, which makes every other part of your business easier to build.
CALM - Creating systems that support you and make your business run smoothly. When you have done the up front work of establishing processes, automations, and standard operating procedures for each part of your business, you can relax and not think about them (much!) anymore.
CONFIDENCE - Showing up in the world and marketing your business. Knowing that your offer is aligned with the way you work best and your systems are in place, you can share your business and connect with potential clients in a way that is genuine and easeful.
Below, you will find a bit more detail about each of these components.
When you have your offer, systems, and marketing strategy nailed down, you can look for ways to expand. We'll talk about your goals and brainstorm options for growing your business at a pace that feels right to you.
People connect with people - and people buy from people. You'll explore which parts of yourself you want to share and how you want to connect. You'll try out some options to see how they feel and refine your marketing plan so that it feels natural and easeful to you.
Sharing your business allows you to get feedback and make sure that you are offering what people want from you and that they are experiencing what you want them to experience. You'll take the feedback you get and refine your offer and systems along the way.
You'll look at your business model and determine which parts can be automated and which parts require your personal touch. You'll build systems, standard operating procedures, and processes to reduce your administrative work and save time, so you can pour yourself into the work you really love.
You'll get crystal clear on your business model and make sure that each step of your client's journey makes sense and flows well into the next. You'll make deliberate choices about what you want them (and yourself!) to experience in each step.
Often, we complicate our businesses in an effort to get unstuck. We'll work through any assumptions that might be keeping you in unproductive patterns. You'll look at what's been working and what's not working so you can eliminate unnecessary tasks and work.
You'll take the time to really explore the exact kind of work you want to do in combination with the way you prefer to work - which becomes your offer. You'll also identify who would benefit from your offer and who you really enjoy working with.
Part of getting clarity is seeing where you may be prioritizing the opinions of other people above your own. We'll uncover unconscious conditioning, work through blindspots, and develop strategies to help with second-guessing, self-doubt, and insecurity.
I'll help you identify what’s exceptional about you and we'll clarify how you want to bring this into your business. The goal of this personal work is to see yourself clearly - your strengths and where you get in your own way. This is the foundation of building your business.

Most of us start out trying to learn the success "secrets" that have worked for other business owners, and eventually find ourselves frustrated and defeated when nothing feels like the right fit.
THE SOLUTION IS TO LISTEN TO YOURSELF
You are the expert on yourself and your business. Coaching is the container within which you will learn how listen to your own secrets and become confident in your own best way to run your business.
The components of CLARITY, CALM, and CONFIDENCE naturally build on each other, but we'll work at your pace and follow the path of creating your business that makes the most sense to you.
We will be working on your business, but you will be doing personal work all along the way and you will see the impact in all areas of your life.
When you do this work, the deep shifts that you make are empowering and bring changes that stick. You'll discover the unconscious beliefs that have kept you locked in exhausting patterns. You'll recognize and manage thinking that doesn't serve you.
You can feel clear, calm, and confident about yourself and your business.
Let’s schedule a quick chat to make sure this is right for you!
We'll talk about what's working in your business and what's not. We'll explore what you want for yourself and start to identify roadblocks that might be in your way.
I will also answer any questions you might have about coaching together. This is a no-pressure zone and I will help you make a no-regrets, empowered decision about whether this is the right time for you to do this work.
If we decide we're a good fit, I will send you a link to sign up. As soon as I see you have registered, I will send out your personalized Welcome Packet with information about our sessions, how to get in touch with me, and other housekeeping details.
"I needed clarity on my niche and what type of service I would offer and I was struggling with fears about moving forward with my business.
Annie helped me to see clearly from the perspective of possibility and harness my strengths to propel me forward in developing my business. I feel lighter and unburdened by my fears and I am much more confident about how to bring my best self to my business now.
Before our first session, I was nervous about sharing my challenges, so I especially appreciated Annie's open, kind, non-judgmental, down-to-earth style.
If I hadn't worked with Annie, I would be feeling stuck in indecision and still held back by my fear rather than taking steps forward in my business with an empowered mindset."
"Before working together I felt confused and needed clarity about my business. I had been struggling with how to make people see the value on my services, and I was frustrated.
Annie was able to help me clarify and understand SO much immediately. I felt like we put together a big puzzle in such a short period of time. Annie made it easy for me to see exactly how and where I need to take action.
Now I know what I need to implement, especially how to communicate what I do so people can see the value of my services."
Emotional Healer and Yoga Instructor
"I was having a hard time
balancing everything in my life and I wanted to enjoy my work more.
From working with Annie, I
saw new possibilities and was able to call upon my own unique abilities and
internal strength to move in a productive direction.
As a result of working with Annie, I definitely have more joy in my life, I've gotten more clients, and
I have a more successful business."
"I wanted to build confidence and structure around starting my own business, while still working full time in the tech industry.
Through coaching with Annie, I had a shift in perspective and am far more aware of what had been holding me back.
I've seen my motivation and confidence increase and I've gained the resources I need to overcome set-backs and challenges."

"There was a mismatch between how I presented myself and how I actually came across. I used to feel like if I dressed nicely and presented myself in a well-put-together way, I was an imposter.
After working with Annie, I'm now able to integrate my "polished presentation" into my natural identity.
Annie helped me convey my self-worth through the way I talked, my clothing, and other elements of my appearance so I could bridge the gap between my inner confidence and outer presentation."
Q: I’m not earning what I want yet, so I’m definitely on a budget. Can I really afford this?
A: Of course, this is completely up to you. The cost of coaching with me is about the same as seeing a personal trainer a couple of times a month. While you might benefit from working out with a trainer (wouldn't we all!), investing in coaching now will allow you to gain the clarity and inner confidence you need to move ahead with your business. While coaching certainly is an investment to consider seriously, I suspect that continuing to feel frustrated and stuck is doing damage that you really can’t afford. (You can also ask me about a payment plan.)
Q: I’ve got a lot on my plate right now. How much time will it take to complete the program each week?
A: THE INTEGRATED ENTREPRENEUR is designed for business owners like you. Our weekly coaching sessions are 45 minutes and you’ll be working on your action items between sessions at your own pace, during your everyday life. We learn from what happened during the week, no matter what you do or don't do. Many of my clients have been working long hours, trying to figure their business out on their own. Our work together is aimed at creating the business you've always dreamed of, without having to do more.
Q: My confidence is low because I've been struggling with depression. Should I do therapy instead?
Coaching is not a replacement for therapy, but these two modalities can work together nicely. Typically, therapy takes longer and helps you understand yourself by figuring out the root causes of your difficulties. In contrast, THE INTEGRATED ENTREPRENEUR is focused on your future and where you're headed with your business - and we are focused on taking immediate action. Both coaching and therapy can be helpful, but only you can decide what is best for you.
Q: My partner and I make decisions together. How can I explain what is different about this program?
A: THE INTEGRATED ENTREPRENEUR is individualized business coaching and strategy to help you gain clarity, build trust in yourself, and create momentum that moves your business forward. We will discover what is unique about you - the way you like to work and the work you actually enjoy doing - and integrate what we learn into your business.
You'll be working on yourself, while you work on your business. When you do this work, the deep shifts that you make are empowering and bring changes that stick. You'll discover the unconscious beliefs that have kept you locked in exhausting patterns. You'll let go of thinking that doesn't serve you. The things you learn about yourself will have a huge impact on your business, but also in your whole life.
Q: Why is your coaching and strategy available in a 3-month engagement?
A: We work in 3-month blocks to give structure to our work. Having a specific amount of time for our work helps your stay accountable and on track. At the beginning of each 3-month engagement, you set intentions and at the end of 3 months, we reflect on what you've accomplished, we do some completion work to lock in what you want to take away, celebrate the work you've done, and then set new intentions to hit your next level of growth over the next 3 months. Clients who are dedicated to their continued personal and business growth have the option of choosing to continue working together with additonal 3-month engagements or participate in group options I offer exclusively to on-going clients.
Q: Is it possible to work every other week, rather than every week?
A: If that pace works better for you, yes, of course we can do that. I do suggest that you experiement and we see which length of time is the most effective for you. Our work together is in service of you, so we will always defer to your preference about what works best.
Q: Do you offer payment plans?
A: Yes, the engagement fee may be split into 2 payments, with the first payment made at registration and the second payment automatically charged at 6 weeks. Feel free to ask me about this when we chat!
