(5) 45 Minute Private Consultations w/ Chris Do
I will give you straightforward, no nonsense, clear advice on how to grow you creative business through strategic selling, value based bidding, branding and positioning. Heck, I even know a few things about managing creative people, art direction and design.
This is not theoretical, metaphysical meditation or unlocking your inner potential. This is just me sharing my straight up business experience (through 20 years of trials and tribulations) to help you with your challenges as a creative entrepreneur.
I'm making myself available so that you can get one on one coaching. Start earning the money you are worth not the money clients are willing to pay you. If you're thinking to yourself, what does he know that I don't? The answer is, nothing. Do it your way. Make the mistakes that I made. Lose that big opportunity. Oversell to clients that aren't buying. Hire a business coach and spend the next 10 years learning what I learned. If you have more time than money, this is a viable alternative.
However, if you want to start selling projects at 2, 5 of even 10 times what you are selling them for now, and you want to close those bigger engagements, give me a call.

How does it work?
Once you purchase a block of time, I will reach out to you and schedule a time to talk. You can have as many people in your organization join the call as you'd like. The call will be recorded and made available to you and your team.
Prior to the call, I will ask you a few questions— what business/marketing goal are you trying to achieve? What are the barriers getting in your way. What topic would you like the call to be focused on? What do you need to do? Make sure you are in a quiet place with high quality headphones and mic. Please make sure you are free of distractions.
That's it. I'll do the rest.
