"Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together."
- Vincent Van Gogh
Over the last few years, I’ve discovered my love for helping others through teaching! With a 7 year career in the tech industry prior, leading, managing and teaching people, I gained invaluable knowledge in social media, PR, communication, and design that I directly translated to starting my business in January 2017! I was previously Director of Operations at a tech start-up, so I am master at taking ideas and forming plans of action!
As a result, I am now offering mentor sessions, covering the topics YOU want to discuss! I am here to be a sounding board, provide concrete direction, and give you the tools and steps to execute your plan! I will provide clear and honest feedback, while providing action items to achieve your goals! I have a heart for people (insert YOU) and want to use my skills and knowledge to help! No BS, just you and me sitting down to make your dreams a reality!
Where do these take place?
Sessions are held in-person (I’m based in San Antonio, TX) or Skype/FaceTime! Don’t you worry...we can easily do everything, including editing, via screen share! I love doing shooting sessions, where I demonstrate how I find good light, shoot, pose and all the other good stuff!
What will I get from our session?
I will ask for a list of topics and/or questions ahead of time so I know what is most important to you! I will create a document prior with notes and resources for the topics, plus added items I think are beneficial to you! This allows for us to make the most of our time!
Why do a mentor session?
Whether you want to kick start your business, or haven’t been happy with your clients, booking rate, social media, or growth, mentor sessions are for you! You will find my packages below! I gained 1k Instagram followers within 4 months of starting my business and accomplished all of my first year business goals within 6 months, without an existing network or community of people! I want to empower you to do the same!
