"If I wouldn’t have invested in my business this way, I wouldn’t have made anywhere close to the progress that I’ve made as a CEO and as a business in this past 8 months. It’s the single best thing I’ve ever done for myself and/or business."

Frequently Asked Questions

Our private mentoring calls are scheduled based on your availability. I share my working calendar with you, so you’re able to select the dates & times that work best. If time management & being “too busy” is already an issue, we can address ways to create more balance in your schedule during your program. I assure you that I will always show up 100% ready for our calls & I expect you to do the same. Commitment to the calls & doing the work is exactly how you’ll get to where you want to be. 


This is an excellent question. First of all-- I consider myself more of a “business mentor” than a coach. And finding the right mentor for your career success is crucial. This is why I have an application process, as well as offer a complimentary 60 minute phone call prior to us working together. During our Discovery Call, we will both be able to assess whether the next best step is to move forward with the Scale to Success Mentorship Program. I promise that I won’t offer my services to you if I don’t feel like I can help you reach your desired outcome.

In order to show up fully for my  mentorship clients, I can only open a select number of spots each month. The application process helps me to understand who’s really committed & ready to dive into the program. I'll review your application & if I think we’re a match, I will contact you for our complimentary 60 minute call-- where we will dig into your business & discuss if working together is the right move!

I’ve been an online business owner for 4+ years. In that short amount of time I’ve scaled my business (formerly Small Talk Social) from a freelance / side-hustle into a six-figure agency, founded a second profitable business, CEO Yeah!, and have created & sold over $100,000 in digital products & courses. I've been able to see dramatic results quickly because I have over 15 years of business leadership experience. I understand how to successfully scale a business by developing a strategic business plan, building smart systems, hiring & leading a team, and attracting the right clients. As an online marketing expert, I’m also able to assist you in developing content, social media & email marketing strategies that will convert your followers into buyers. I’ve been leading & developing other leaders for nearly half of my life & I care deeply for the people that I choose to work with. When we work together, I take your business & your goals just as seriously as I take my own. 

I do offer a monthly group mentorship program for those who want support but aren’t ready to invest in 1:1 private coaching. Please let me know if you'd like to discuss this option during our Discovery Call. Our group calls are biweekly with 2 call times available for your convenience. Additionally, my 1:1 clients are invited to participate in the bi-weekly group calls, where they can get together & network with other business owners & share what they’re currently working on. These calls are generally formatted as a group Q&A / mini mastermind session. The content & flow of these calls is completely dependent on the specific participants & what they bring to the table on any particular day. 

I 100% believe that you get out of a mentorship program what you are willing to put in. You must be committed to the process & willing to do the work in between our 1:1 sessions (even when it's hard) in order to see your desired results. However, if you can show me you are doing the work & are still not satisfied with your progress in the program, I do offer a 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee within 90 days of your start date.
