Business Strategist & Project Manager

Raven is a magical mixture of real strategy and smart coaching. She takes her time to understand where you want to go and then draws out a plan to help you get there. Not only does she let you see the possibility in your goodies but she gives you stress free steps to get there naturally. I used to be really overwhelmed. Because of Raven, I have made a critical shift in how I approach my future and I’m excited for what’s next.

Trying to do it all on your own? Allow me to help.

You’ve got work you’re passionate about. You’ve got a million and one ideas that are all half started. You don’t have the time, tech savvy or desire to do the behind the scenes work.

And that’s fine. Because with me, you can do the thing you love and I can do the things I love. Luckily for you, what I love is supporting changemakers to amplify their message, get more done and make more money.

On this page, I’ll share the array of things that I can do for the right person/business. I can do all or some of these things for the right person.


Who is the “right” person?

I get the most enjoyment out of working with creatives who are shifting our culture through activism, coaching, writing, speaking and art.

Your work has the potential to improve lives, transform thinking, and create change in the world - one person at a time. You’re so focused on your message that you don’t have the time to fiddle with your website or get down into the details of how your next program will come to life.

That’s where I step in.


How do I work?

Once we get started, you can consider me a part of your team for three to six months. During that time, I’ll do any of the things listed below to bring your program to life in the most successful way.

After spending a few months all up in your business, I’ll leave you with clear processes, procedures and tools to make running your business a breeze.

Because I give so much time and energy to this work, I only do it for two businesses at a time, MAX.  So, I am pretty picky about who I work with.

  • You must be super excited about your business - I can only be about 90% as engaged as you are. So, if you’re at a point of total overwhelm or not really feeling it, you may need to first talk to Raven - the coach.

  • While I offer other services on a PWYC basis, this work is far too intensive and time consuming for that. When I say that I’m all in, I really mean it. I don’t count hours or restrict your access to me in any way. So, the bare minimum for this service is $500 per month. If you’re really into what I have to offer, but that’s out of your range, let’s talk about some more low key ways to work together.


My areas of expertise and enjoyment:

  • Strategy

    • Discuss goals and what steps are needed to achieve them.

    • Discover your approach, values, and principles and translate into daily business practices.

    • Research business tools, systems and strategies.

  • Project Management

    • Create project timelines and manage achievement of key milestones.

    • Follow up on key tasks to ensure that we remain on schedule.

    • Assess risk factors/challenges and offer solutions.

    • Set up new technologies like online courses, email marketing and membership portals.

  • Operations Management

    • Manage administration, logistics and infrastructure of your growing business.

    • Create and optimize processes based on your work style, tech savvy and budget.

    • Recruit additional team members and train them into their respective functions.

    • Manage day to day tasks of other team members to keep projects moving

  • Technical Support (These services only provided in the context of a greater partnership)

    • Website Design, Development and Graphic Design for online program, workshop, course, or community.

    • Implementation of new software and tools to support such programs.

    • Create instruction manual for yourself and other team members.

    • Serve as technical/customer support for program participants.

    • Change content, fix website emergencies and other small tasks on websites that I have not developed.

Things I don’t do:

  • Calendar and email management.

  • Personal errands or research

  • Copywriting

  • Social Media Marketing


Pricing

This depends on what mix of my skills you need and the scope of our project. But it’ll look something like this: Free consultation.  Up front fee for strategic discussion and plan. Monthly retainer.

To give you an idea of what the fees for this type of relationship:

  • Project Specific Strategy Session w/ Written Plan/Timeline - starting at $600

  • Total Business Strategy Session w/Written Recommendations - starting at $1500

  • Monthly Retainer for small project - starting at $500

  • Monthly Retainer for large project - starting at $1000

Prices are based on my level of experience, the results you’ll receive and the amount of time and energy I plan to give. I offer other services on a pay what you can basis, but the work in this section is far too time intensive (and revenue producing) to offer discounts.
