Facilitating the process of bringing creative work into the public realm - through SMART goals.


What is "creative consulting"?


You have an idea; or a book; or a project - and it is an amazing spectacular and/or life changing idea - but how do you get it out there?  

How do you plan and execute that plan? What happens when you get stuck? 

That is where I come in - as your sounding board, your guide through terra incognito, and your cheering section. Plus I am organized and can help you stay accountable to your plan, even when you might get discouraged. And I can assist you by managing some of the process. 

Initial one-hour consultation is free.  Fees depend upon the project and work required, and are billed in whole hours.

How would this help me?


Sometimes you need an objective third party to bounce ideas with and to review your plans for things you might not have seen or considered. 

Sometimes you need help researching your idea, book or project - perhaps you are overwhelmed with information and just need help winnowing the important items from the huge amount of data. 

And sometimes you need a sanity check, a pat on the back and a sympathetic ear from someone who believes in you and your idea, book or project. 

Part of creative consulting is coaching and part is cheerleading.  I have an added advantage in being a tech whisperer (i.e. tech is not overwhelming and I can help you navigate formats and technical requirements). 

What are SMART Goals


I am all about results. And to be able to point to a result, I use SMART goals - SMART is an acronym for:






Specific: Set concrete, clearly defined goals with specific points of success.

Measurable: Whatever the goal is, find ways to measure progress.

Achievable: Aim high, but within reason. Your goal should be a stretch, but something you could actually achieve.

Relevant: Find a goal that matters enough to you that you’ll be motivated to stick with it.

Time-bound: Set a reasonable timeline for your goal, and focus on the small wins along the way.
