From one business person to another, I'm so happy you stopped by. There is nothing quite like the tension an entrepreneur feels between the things they love doing and the stuff that comes with running a business. If you know, you know.
Over the last seven years of leading my own business, I've found great freedom (not to mention greater success) by hiring different specialists to make my business life more manageable. My business has grown because I let go of trying to do it all alone. I hope I can bring the same stress relief to you.
We've just met, and I haven't been 100% honest with you.
Greenhouses are for growing, but gardening is a terrible metaphor for me. I can't keep any green thing alive for more than nine days. So every spring, I buy 37 Geraniums. Exclusively. (And I seek out the ones that look like fighters.)
Thankfully (for both you and me), my superpowers are:
helping business owners untangle their thoughts
crafting clear and creative communication
delivering outstanding client experiences
Clear, effective messaging is the foundation of solid marketing. The StoryBrand writing technique is a proven, logical way to engage your prospective clients. It paves the way for more sales by inviting customers into a story where their lives are transformed. Nothing captures our attention the way story does.
There are bigger, fancier agencies out there doing great stuff. But they can't do what I can do as your guide. Plus, for no extra charge, I'm a freaking delight to work with.
I graft (that's a horticulture term I looked up) my StoryBrand Certification with decades of experience in a broad range of roles and industries - including five years of focus on small businesses like yours. My shed holds a variety of tools.
So let's do a virtual coffee. Tell me about what you're growing, and I'll tell you how Greenhouse can help.
StoryBrand Guide & Graphic Designer
As a Certified StoryBrand Guide, I have the intensive training and experience to help you discover what your ideal client needs to hear. Using the StoryBrand framework, I help overloaded Service Providers and Real Estate professionals create brand messaging that invites leads into a story. While about 75% of my clients are in Real Estate, each individual is unique in strengths, approach and view of the industry. Personally, I get a nerdy dopamine hit every time I figure out what a client's secret sauce is. Followed by another rush when we find the language to communicate it.
The messaging is a good chunk of the marketing puzzle. Making sure things look sharp is another piece. We deliver both copywriting and graphic design services in one relationship.
