  • Consulting, speaking, and coaching services are available. 
  • Check out the Services page for the full range of options and potential.
  • It is helpful to get some detail about your interest up front, but not a worry if it is tricky to pin down.  This is part of the purpose for the Free Consultation, as noted below.
  • In-person consultation or coaching may be available in central Iowa, or around other parts of Iowa or in Minneapolis/St. Paul if travel schedules align.

Request a Free 30-minute Consultation:

  • Free initial consultations may be offered to potential clients or partners based on information received during initial communications.  Please block time in your schedule for the appointment once it is scheduled.
  • An additional short questionnaire may be sent if further information is needed prior to confirming a free consultation.
  • The consultation is offered to potential clients to allow both parties to explore the potential for working together.  This is about determining if the services match the needs, to see if personalities align, and to check out potential areas for work. 
  • This is not an actual coaching or consulting session.
  • If you are requesting a free consultation, please offer 2-3 potential dates and times at least one week out.
