MUSIC MARKETING COACH
Creative entrepreneurs often struggle with the business and marketing aspects of their career. Marketing coaching offers gentle guidance and resources to develop your personal and business brand, market research, social media strategy, SEO, content strategy, marketing strategy, online marketing, automation, public relations, and growth marketing.
Living a creative life is often challenging with creative blocks and career concerns. Creativity coaching is a specialized form of life coaching where the coach inspires self-discovery, new possibilities, and strategic actions, designed to help you achieve your goals.
LIFE PURPOSE COACHING
At many points in our lives we may question if we are on the right path. Life purpose coaching explores our conditioning, passions/interests, talents/skills, personality, experiences, and limiting beliefs leading to empowerment and a clear statement of purpose.
