What holistic business means to me
A holistic approach to business puts you at the center of strategic choices
How you create your business, what you choose to offer, how you choose to offer it, and everything you do from your working hours to your technology choices; must come from an understanding of who you are and what you need.
Knowing yourself is a huge part of the entrepreneurial journey.
My holistic business approach is perfect for you if you want to create work for yourself that works well with your skills, personality, your lifestyle and your goals. And you are ready to accept that there will be bits you don't love about running your own business, but I am here to tell you there are a million ways to do things, and there is a way that will work for you.
Nonetheless, business does include selling and marketing.
Most help-y kinds of entrepreneurs aren't crazy about marketing. But they are when I expose them to a few mindset shifts.
Last, but not least, if you're a creative or sensitive soul that needs to take more inspired action in support of creating a business you love, I believe in you. I think your brain, passion, creativity and weird ideas are just what the world needs right now.
More than ever.
Before I worked with Val I didn't know how to define my niche or understand how to work with online technology confidently or how to get my message out. I felt somewhat lost ... w/o a compass.
After working with Val I am very excited about my niche & new biz. Everything feels aligned. I am ELATED & OPTIMISTIC!!!

Before working with Val I was frazzled and overwhelmed. Now - calmer and smarter:) Val is incredibly thorough and takes the time to explain every step along the way. She is thoughtful in her direction and works hard to please. Her work.is fantastic! Val is incredibly well versed and good at what she does! I would definitely recommend her.

Holistic business approaches provide clarity and simplicity
And I am here for you because service-based entrepreneurs, creative souls and helping types often find themselves with businesses that need some clarification and alignment support. If your business has morphed into some Rorschach test (the guy who created ink-blot tests to measure disordered thinking), I can help you wrangle it into something your clients will understand. More than that, I'll make it easy for you to talk about.
And wouldn't that be grand?
Technology that makes your life simple and bank account happy
Did I mention technology? Would you rather I not?
I know. No one warned you about all the techie bits and pieces you need to figure out in order to do the stuff you want to do with your online business. Well, don't fret. I know that technology pieces can put the kibosh on business ideas before they get started, and I've got the fix for that. I will show you the softer side of technology so you guys can be friends.
