What My Clients Say...
“I first worked with Julie as a business adviser where she was tremendously valuable to my startup. When I got stuck on my career path, I called on Julie. And I'm so glad I did. She not only provided me with a set of tools that I call on almost daily, but I've shed a lot of baggage allowing me to live my life with only the essential elements. I've since taken a new career path, and my relationships with family and most importantly myself have experienced a new level of harmony I'm forever grateful for."

"Life has been incredibly intense lately, and Julie is a big reason I've been able to maintain my sanity and actually turn the challenges into growth. Her suggestions and tools to process everything have been just what I needed. She's good. She's really good."

My Coaching Philosophy
Through one-on-one coaching sessions via Zoom, we assess the problems and opportunities associated with your business. Then we work through your needs for strategy + structure + story + support. We'll likely see some things holding you back along the way, and we'll work through those. I have a variety of tools to help you see your situation with fresh eyes and find a way that perhaps hasn’t occurred to you before.
As a coach, my job is to form hypotheses about what’s happening with you and your business and then give you something to push against. You won’t hurt my feelings by saying I’m wrong...that’s how we clarify what's going on and question what feels true. Finding comfort in discomfort is a key trait of entrepreneurs, so we will practice that together.
You’ll hear me ask “why” a lot. And sometimes those “whys” will feel like dumb questions. But go with it, I’m usually asking for a very good reason. I will also ask you to suspend some of your beliefs about the way things "should be" and consider that your interpretation might not be serving you well. Together, we will explore new beliefs that serve your entrepreneurial interests better. And of course, our work together is 100% confidential.
