Beth HardingWhat I love is Beth, is her wonderful balance of business savvy (corporate and small business background) and a heart-centred approach. She has an Algonquin Indian Shamanism background, and she has such a pure and acute awareness that is a MUST for me because that's the kind of business I have, and the kinds of clients I work with. She pushes when it's right, she's gentle when it's needed. I am a client of hers, and I always feel loved, safe and supported. And she's so much fun to work with! She offers:

  • Heart-Centred Business Coaching -She's amazing. Can't rave enough.
  • Marketing Ideas - Her background is public relations
  • Writing and Editing- She's a pro. She loves adverbs.
  • Event Planning- From concept to execution, Beth is your ticket to a well-organized event. She had alot of experience in this, on corporate and small-business levels. She's also great at working with "talent".

Tad HargraveMany of you already know of Tad Hargrave, as his network is huge and he has been helping those in the eco and wholistic fields market themselves for a while now. Tad does offer consults, but he's so very busy with so many people wanting his time, that I would recommend checking out these things:

  • His Workshops - Tad travels across Canada  giving his workshops. He's very good at teaching marketing to non-marketers and those who fear marketing. If you are wanting some guidance and want to be self-empowered with your own marketing, I recommend you take his workshops.
  • Tad's Website - Not only does he have a very cool business name - Marketing for Hippies - but his website is full of wonderful resources. Check out his blog (he's an excellent writer) and he has a whole bunch of awesome Youtube Videos you'll want to watch.
  • His E-Book - Want a way to attract subscribers to your mailing list? Free gifts is a great way. Tad has this awesome e-book on how to create this. Buy it here.
  • Community Building - I'm not sure if Tad mentions this on his website, but I see that he's very good at bringing people together and building networks. For example, he's co-founder of The Local Good, and on his personal Facebook page, he has about 5000 friends. Keep this in mind while you browse his stuff.

Strong Coffee MarketingI have worked with two of the lovely fellows at this company (Brian and Trevor), and they have been amazing to work with. Around them, I feel like I have really stepped up my game as a designer. They can help with:

  • SEO - Search Engine Optimization - This is the stuff (keywords, page titles & descriptions) that helps the search engines like Google find you and rank you. My skills are basic, but they fine-tune it, research it, work with it as an evolving entity, to make your website more popular, focussed, and easy to find.
  • Web Marketing Strategy - Want to advertise on the web? Increase it's popularity? They can help.

Liz GarrattI have know Liz Garratt for several years, and go to her myself for my own business. She calls what she does "Inspired Business Adventures". Liz is trained in traditional business planning, but found there was a much deeper approach to take in our own businesses. All of my clients already live very consciously, so it makes sense to have someone like Liz to help from this approach to your businesses. Liz offers:

  • Business Circles - Fairly regularly, Liz offers Inspired Business Circles. Most are for an afternoon, and they have an intention (e.g. pricing). I recommend these to those of you who embrace deep work (e.g. in the circles there is sharing, and this helps you get clear on what your really want, what your heart is saying) and who already acknowledge that business can be emotional in all ways, because it's an extention of ourselves
  • Inspired Business Planning - Contact Liz for details. She offers more extensive workshops for those who want to get focussed in what they want for their businesses. I have personally taken this course, and found it helped me get clear, fine-tune my business, so that it just flows now.
  • Business Coaching - In my own words, it feels like Liz offers "Business Counselling". I find it's just so nice to book a couple hours with Liz every now and then, as almost a business tune-up. I share my new ideas, my challenges, and somehow just talking it out feels so good. Her gift is listening, and then she gives the most wonderful feedback that affirms and helps you get clear. She does coaching for individuals, as well as groups and organizations.
