Hello! My name is Jodi -- I offer consulting, coaching and specialized courses for entrepreneurs and small business owners who are in the start-up or post-startup (18 months to 3 years) phase and looking to create a growth strategy that will take your business from start-up to sustainable.
I firmly believe and advocate that self-employment is a legitimate alternative to traditional employment.
Women make up 80% of my client base. My goal is to work with each woman to find the right fit and balance between what they want in their personal life, the financial freedom they are seeking and the professional growth that drives them to lead in their industry.
Coaching is not one-size fits all. Each woman is unique and each plan and coaching style is customized around their needs to ensure they build a business that includes ambitious goals and a realistic action plan on how to achieve those goals. Plus, everyone needs support! I am your biggest cheerleader AND consistent accountability partner.
Through my own business ventures, mentoring connections and roles through municipal small business centres, I have worked with and supported over 5,000 start-ups and small business owners over the last 10 years and have provided guidance in areas such as business planning and strategy development, goal setting, productivity and organization, hiring and capacity management, financial accountability and growth, funding acquisition, succession planning, marketing strategy development, as well as operations including business structure registration and working with municipal departments including licensing, zoning and building.
