Pick My Brain Consulting
Every day I receive messages from bloggers, newbies and aspiring online business owners to help them out with their challenges.
Since I’m very open to people, most of them end up wasting my time.
There also people who I give free consulting once and they’d run to me anytime and everytime they want my help. Since, I’ve agreed to do it once, saying NO the second time would become difficult.
While I’d love to help as many aspiring business owners as I can, if I responded YES to every request to pick my brain, I’d have no time for client work…and I’d be broke. Unfortunately, in this case, it really does come down to time and money.
As a workaround, I developed this service called Pick My Brain Consulting sessions, where interested folks can purchase 30 minutes, 60 minutes or three hours of my time to literally ask me anything.
This consulting session is to help separate time-wasters from serious people who honestly want help on their online business and respect my professional advice.

If you don’t have any specific questions, I will tailor the session based on your unique goals to go over the most important things you need to know for creating a successful blog, using examples and visuals to highlight specific points. You may also use the session to have me help you craft pitches, articles or edit posts.
After you book a session, here’s how it works…
1. You do a little bit of homework. Yes, sorry, I’m going to give you homework! It’s easy, I promise. I ask you a few key questions about your current efforts and goals. You send your responses back to me at least 48 hours before our session. You also send me ANY and ALL questions you have that you hope to get answered during our session. I will send these questions via Google Form.
2. Then, I do some homework. (See, I have homework, too!) I take a look at your responses and your questions, and come to our session with detailed and specific tips, tricks and answers for you.
3. We meet! We’ll chat, either via phone or Skype, for our session. During the session, I’ll spend every moment giving you as much value as I possibly can.
4. I send you some follow-up goodies. When our session is complete, I provide you with notes and action items from our session! Along with your session notes, you’ll also receive my detailed two-page Personal Branding Checklist.
5. You go and make it happen! After our time together and reviewing your notes, you’ll be ready start making big things happen.
6. Testimonial: Oh Lord! I love testimonials. After implementing the tips and strategies and they work, kindly send in your testimonials.
Every consulting session takes place online. I only meet people one-on-one in very rare cases.
