You have an exciting and unique idea for a blog, but no idea how to get it off the ground.

You want to be an online writer, but don't know the first thing about pitching editors.

You’re an academic who wants to make their work more accessible, but isn’t sure where to start.

You have a cool online course or ebook to sell, but—wait a minute—what's a nurturing strategy?

You want to use social media more effectively, but can't make a graphic to save your life.

You started a new business venture, but have zero web design skills.

You're ready to launch your dream project, but you need a little support.

HOW DOES THIS WORK, EXACTLY? However you want it to work, babe! You're the boss – I'm just here to support you in achieving your wildest dreams. Do you just need a quick one-and-done phone consultation to answer a burning question that you have? Are you in need of a little bit of help copy editing the website you're putting together? Do you want me on your team for a long haul to help you launch a new program? Whatever you need, we can find a way to piece it together. During the (FREE!) inquiry and proposal process, we'll talk about all of this so that we can design exactly what you're looking for.

MY PROJECT IS REALLY SMALL – WOULD YOU STILL TAKE IT ON? Yes! I truly, deeply love working with individual clients to help them with smaller projects. If you're doing good work in the world, I want to be a part of it – and I'm open to projects of all sizes.

CAN YOU BE CONTRACTED FOR LONG-TERM PROJECTS? I sure can! All of my clients work with me on a one-, three-, or six-month basis with options for renewal.

OKAY, BUT SERIOUSLY, WHAT ARE WE TALKING, MONEY-WISE? Well, that depends on a few factors, like the monthly time commitment we envision together, the size of the undertaking, whether this is a personal or professional venture for you, and so on. I won't know the range that we're looking at until I hear about your project! But accessibility is one of my core values as an activist. Many people charge upwards of hundreds of dollars per hour for consulting services. Let's just say that I'm a steal, compared to that.

WAIT—I WANT A DISCOUNT OR REFERRAL CODE. HOW DO I GET ONE? Oh, I would looove to tell you all about my referral program, which can save you a ton of money! Once we hop on the phone to discuss the details of your project, I'll give you the lowdown. As for discounts, I offer those sometimes to folks who are dedicated to my work in a variety of ways – through sponsoring me on Patreon, subscribing to my newsletter, or following me on social media. It's a way to say thank you for the support and give back to my community.

I HAVE A QUESTION NOT ANSWERED HERE. No problem! Use the form above to send me a message about your project, and I'll answer whatever questions you have!
