Web Freelancer Mentoring and Consulting

If you’re a freelancer or run a small agency, I can help you unlock your potential with my specialized approach. Learn how to be better at running a web design, programming, Internet marketing, SEO, content marketing, or other digital media business. Just one thing, though… if you come to me, it’s because you’re serious about doing the work and making progress. I’m a laid-back guy with a penchant for humour, but when it comes to helping others, I’m genuinely committed and sincere in offering my assistance. If you want a thriving freelance career, be aware that my unique blend of mentorship and consulting is tailored specifically for those who are eager to efficiently run and sustain a successful web and digital freelance business. Let’s build your success together. I’m here to guide you every step of the way!

Stop Being Stressed Out

One common scenario is that you started using WordPress, loved it, and after a few small clients you realize you have a business but don’t know how to keep it going. Stop relying on guesswork to navigate your way to success. Stop procrastinating and holding your business back by letting administrative issues, client issues, and other work-related problems build up. I will help you find the time to structure your business and bring order to the chaos. More importantly, I’ll help you work through actual priorities, not just items you perceive as priorities. Gain access to my industry insights, proven strategies, and personalized guidance tailored to your unique needs and questions. Let’s find ways to grow your business while working on client projects or even your own properties. Don’t let a lack of experience, challenging or bad clients, or the feeling of being on the brink of giving up deter you any longer. You don’t have to face the freelance world alone anymore.

What to Expect from Me

This is some of what I provide to web freelancers looking to thrive in their business:

  • Experience-based answers: Gain insights and solutions drawn from years of hands-on experience.
  • Real-world application: Learning from books, courses, and Google is valuable, but nothing beats the real-world insights a mentor can provide. You won’t get a customized answer to very specific problems and issues that arise in your business. With me as your mentor, you’ll gain practical knowledge that can be directly applied to your situation.
  • Honesty (Sometimes brutal honesty): Receive candid feedback and honest opinions to help you grow and improve, even if it might be hard to hear at times.
  • Open questions: Please, please, please ask me questions! I won’t judge. We all have something to learn.
  • Confidence Building: I will support you and can provide the encouragement and reassurance you need. Whether it’s a tough client negotiation, a challenging SEO problem, or something else.
  • Guidance toward the best practices in freelancing and running a business: Learn proven strategies and industry best practices to help you navigate the challenges of freelancing and business management.
  • Pushing you to get more out of your work: You will benefit from a mentor who will challenge you to go beyond your comfort zone, achieve your goals, and reach your fullest potential.
  • Opportunities through my connections, where possible: Leverage my network of industry connections to access valuable opportunities, collaborations, and resources to help you thrive in your freelancing career.
  • A balanced perspective: In ongoing growth coaching and mentorships, I not only focus on your professional development but also help you maintain a natural flow (some call it work-life balance but I think it’s more than that). This is essential for long-term success in freelancing.

Together, these aspects provide a comprehensive support system designed to empower web freelancers to build and run a successful business.

Why choose me?

You probably wouldn’t trust a financial advisor who is drowning in debt, an obese doctor to give you advice about losing weight and staying healthy, or a Klingon to be a compassionate starship counsellor. So why would you seek out someone without the relevant experience and successes to help with your business growth?

You require a mentor who is not only successful but also possesses the skills to teach you. Someone willing to invest the time, offer honest insights, and guide you through the intricacies of running a thriving freelance business. It’s about finding a coach who has both the experience in the field and the ability to impart that wisdom effectively.

  • In 2022, I literally wrote the book on freelancer pricing strategies. This definitive guide titled “The Psychology of Pricing” is 400-pages packed with invaluable advice.
  • With over 25 years of experience, I oversee several companies and brands that have generated millions of dollars in revenue. My main brands spotlight me as a freelancer and highlight my extensive background in the field.
  • I started as a web freelancer and then shifted into being a solopreneur / solo entrepreneur and never looked back. I’ve been managing a team of people with skills that I didn’t have for over two decades.
  • I built my first website in 1997 and have helped other freelancers since the early 2000s!
  • I taught at McGill University and Boston College. And to borrow from Mean Girls, I’m not like the other profs, I’m a cool prof! I taught Psychology and my classes consisted of activities like analyzing episodes of The Simpsons. I’m a firm believer in mastery learning. That is, if you get it wrong the first time, or even the second and third time, you can keep going until you get it right.
  • I’m President of the Canadian Internet Marketing Association so I know a thing or two about the Internet!
  • I was one of first SEO professionals in the world! I started in 1997! So I can help you with that as well!

Unlock Your Potential with Insightful Coaching

With a fresh pair of eyes and industry-rich experience, I provide the insights you may miss on your own. With me as your mentor, you’ll be posed with thought-provoking, sometimes tough questions that lead to real growth. I’ll introduce you to unique approaches that you probably haven’t encountered yet. It’s not just about learning the ropes, it’s about shaking things up and discovering your own path to success in the dynamic web industry.

A Win-Win Coaching Partnership

As your mentor, I won’t do the work for you. But what I offer is even more valuable! This is a mentor-mentee partnership aimed at developing your business skills and building your confidence. I’ll provide the expert guidance you need to make your mark in the web industry. Personal and professional development are key and as you progress with your freelancing, you can gain a lot personally as well.

As a coach, I help you see what you might miss. I’ll ask direct, sometimes hard-hitting questions that you might be afraid to ask. I’ll bring a unique approach, typically one that you haven’t seen or tried in the same way. We’ll work on your marketing strategy to bring you the success you’re looking for. I’ll help you see the implementation, tactics, or patterns that aren’t working so we can reverse course toward success. As a coach, I don’t do the work per se but I’ll help you with your insights and re-orient your direction.

Why should you even get help?

In traditional education, apprenticeships and internships gave aspiring professionals hands-on experience and trade secrets from seasoned experts. Unfortunately, their availability and significance have declined. In today’s fast-paced and competitive freelance landscape, having an experienced professional to guide you is more essential than ever. That’s where I come in. With my extensive experience and tailored guidance, I can be the guide you need to navigate the complexities of the freelance world. Think of it as a modern twist on the apprenticeship model, where I’ll be there to assist you on the side, ensuring that you learn the skills necessary to succeed in your freelancing career. It’s time to bridge the gap between traditional learning and the real-world demands of today’s extremely competitive market.
