I SEE POSSIBILITY
Business management and a work that doesn't make you wanna through your laptop in the pooper.
“It's nice to work with someone who gets you and to have confidence that you're being understood."

I'm Val & I Remove Obstacles To Work You Love
I work with creative souls, coaches, healers, and people who are inspired to make changes for the better. Better for others and better for themselves. And I don't want online technology to stop you. In fact, I want it to help make your life easier, help you seize opportunities, take hold of inspiration and help you direct the life that helps you thrive.
But it does. All the time. Websites stop people from moving forward. Tools and systems overwhelm people with the endless options and opinions folks have about them. And I wanna just yank you back (in a loving way of course), spin you 'round and point you back in the direction you should be going for that happy, directed life you wanted to create for yourself and your work.
Because I know if this is you, you've likely taken a course or two or nine.
You've read lots of blog posts and Facebook posts and articles. And I know you have lots of brilliant ideas, plans, and goals. So we both know the challenging part of starting your own business and being online with it, isn't finding information!
The challenging part is knowing what to focus on and when.
And here's a helpful secret I've discovered to be true. Clarity doesn't fall from the sky and make everything better. Clarity doesn't even look how you'd expect it too. And perfectionism is an enemy of clarity that feeds the overthinkitus monster twinkies and crack.
We can easily self-sabotage strait past clarity and keep going round and round and round.
So if you are waiting for some magic clarity to bestow itself upon you before you take action to move forward for your life and your work, you might be waiting for a long time.
I want to help you take some action today, where you are and where your business is. It's that action taking and getty-outy stuff that *gives you clarity* :)
Because your needs are unique to you today and they will change.
I want to help you understand what you need right now and how to get it. Go for simple. Go for action. Get support if you need it because waiting does cost you more $$$$ and know that perfect is not invited to this party.
Just the facts (for those who need them)
I love connecting with people and know how important listening is if you want to help, which I always do want to do. When I was at the CBC we had a team of coaches come in to work with us and I felt coaching was a perfect match for my own personal and career goals. It just works and it's a valuable skill to have if you want to help people achieve goals with ease and clarity.
I graduated from life coach training in 2015 (Institute For Life Coach Training).
Before I studied life coaching and after my university degree, I studied to become a web developer & designer at Humber College in Toronto and worked many years as a web designer and front-end web developer for advertising agencies and digital houses.
A natural business minded person and always seeking more ease and flow, it wasn't long before I moved into management. First I managed digital departments and specialized in streamlining their workflow and then I moved into project management.
I spent many years as a project manager for fortune 500 companies, top ad agencies, and Canada's largest broadcaster the CBC. I've worked with many teams creating online experiences, overhauling internal business systems, creating software, games, tools, websites and more.
I've over 20-years of digital media experience, helping people achieve goals with technology, systems, and tools online and I can help you too.
I'm a vegetarian, mostly vegan and I care deeply about our planet and social issues. Helping others, caring for the planet and giving back is important to me. I believe in creativity for the soul, hug lots of creatures often and generally enjoying the little things.
I completely worship my 2 cats but don't call me a cat lady!
Think you'd like to work with me? INFJ in da house. Sage at your service, Developer, and Creative. Clearly, I find personalty and archetype research interesting if only for self-ponderance and reflection. For the mystics out there, I'm also a Pisces sun & Taurus moon with a bit of a feisty Scorp rising thing happening. Too much sharing? Well, It's not about me really -it's all about you. Sometimes these things are important, and well sometimes they just aren't.
I'll let you be the judge.
