Welcome! Here’s everything you need to know about what comes next.
Step 1: Choose Method of Communication
Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, etc. If you prefer the phone, please (!) don’t multi-task. No driving, biking, dishwashing, etc.
Step 2: Time Slot
Calls are 45 minutes with a 5- to 10-minute wrap-up. For our first session, I build in a 15-minute window for ironing out tech issues. I normally coach Tues, Wed and Thurs between 9am and 3pm, but I do have other slots available. If I’m booked, I can put you on a waitlist for the following month.
Step 3: Semester Plan
Counterintuitively, creativity often happens best inside structure. I create a structured semester with each of my clients, either three or four months. Pick if you’d like a short or long semester, and how many appts (1-4x per month) you’d like, and we’ll create (and name) your semester.
Step 4: Payment
Due the 1st of each month. If your semester is 2x/month, then you’d owe $350 on the 1st. My Paypal is alex at suitcase to mars (dot) com. I charge the full fee if you cancel within 24 hours. If you need to reschedule, give me 24-48 hours’ notice.
Step 5: Confidentiality and Commitment Everything you say in coaching is confidential. While personal issues arise, I am not a therapist, and may refer you to therapy as a replacement or adjunct to writing coaching. I do send out a very detailed action and reflection plan each meeting, which requires about an hour of homework. Be ready to challenge yourself!
