Send me an email letting me know you’d like to talk, and we’ll set up a time to meet – via Skype, a phone call, an in-person meeting if we live close enough to each other; whichever is most comfortable and convenient for you.
We’ll talk for at least 90 minutes, for which I ask $20. Sometimes these meetings last longer. During this initial meeting we will talk about your vision, your goals, and any hurdles that you have identified. We can look at examples of sites you like, or other artists whose work you are inspired by, and we can journal and scrapbook or use whichever process is most comfortable for you.
We’ll talk about your project’s history – what you like, what you dislike, and what has and hasn’t worked for you in the past. We’ll discuss the kind of working environment you would like to have, and visualize the perfect set of aids to your personal process.
When this meeting is done we will have identified a set of short term goals, have described a long term path, and will have a plan to move forward.
It is not unusual for this to be our only meeting. When describing to someone else what you are trying to do or what you think is holding you back, creative individuals often discover a solution that they can implement themselves, and that is the optimal solution.
In that case, I will summarize the results of our meeting and mail you suggestions for tools and services that may help you achieve your goals. That’s it – we’re done, and you’re on your way to your preferred future.
If instead we find there is something that I can help you achieve, or there is something that you would like me to do for you, then I will put together a project plan for you. If it looks good to you, then we will start the journey toward your preferred future; together.
For my own time, I ask $20 an hour, and I’ll let you know what other expenses might be involved (such as hosting fees, or licenses for tools that you want to use) before committing to them.
If you have a budget that you would like me to stick to, I’ll stay within that. For example, if you want to spend only $20 a month, you’ll still get an hour of my time every month, ensuring continual improvement month by month. Over time, that can achieve a lot.
My goal is to help you identify and achieve your goals. Together, we can make that preferred future a reality.
