Why Choose Maggie?
When selecting a business coach or consultant there are a lot of things to consider. On this page I’m going to tell you all the concrete and non-concrete reasons why I may be a good match for you and your business. In the end, what really matters is how we work together, so I highly encourage you to contact me and take advantage of a free initial consultation session.
I have over ten years experience, which includes five years coaching creative solo-preneurs, and a year of corporate business consulting experience. I managed a yoga studio for three years. I am an entrepreneur myself twice over: In addition to my coaching practice, I was co-owner of Rain City Blues, an annual blues dance event in Seattle, WA. It was lauded as extremely well organized and broke even in our first year running the event.
I’ve worked with entrepreneurs for the majority of my career. Along the way I’ve developed strengths in marketing, fundraising, event planning, volunteer management, systems development, and implementation of SaaS business solutions.
Daughter of an entrepreneur, I learned sound business principles from an early age. Everything from planning my birthday parties on a budget to selling girl scout cookies. I’m also an alumni of Syracuse University, where I studied architecture and got my degree in Geography. At Syracuse University I founded the Swing Dance Club.
While coaching is inherently not industry specific, I do have expertise in some specific areas. You’ll find links to pages dedicated to each of those in the menu.
I believe in abundance and I have faith that you are completely capable of finding your own answers to whatever challenges you may face. ("So why do I need your help," you ask?) We all have doubts and self-sabotaging habits that get in the way of our ability to succeed and find fulfillment. As a coach I can re-enforce the good and help you not to dwell on the doubts. We can find the source of the self-sabotaging behaviors and combat them. I also believe that you have a right to live a fulfilled life. I'm happy to help you get to the bottom of what that is, and how to get there (without living the life of a pauper.)
My philosophy is based on the influence of a number of other sources. Most notably, Integrated Movement Therapy and Co-Active Coaching.
