Overview year and a half planning

This is ideal for people who are wanting to get started as a freelancer and have a rough idea of the sector/s they are interested in, or for those who are in their first two years of trading, and haven’t done a business projection plan. 

Initial video call session: 1.5 hours
Second video call session: 1 hour
Time for me to put together my initial plan: 2 hours
Emails back and forth, or/and video call to discuss and edit plan: 1 hour

Cost: £275 

Before our initial session I will send you some questions to answer, which will tell me a bit about who you are and what you want to do. During our initial session, I will ask you lots of questions based on your answers, which will help me explore all the different ideas you have (if any – don’t worry if you don’t!), and find what potential directions you could take. I also find that these sessions sometimes bring up some surprising things that you didn’t realise about yourself! This will be a chance for you to try on different ideas, and see how they feel for you. I take notes throughout, so you don’t need to worry about that, unless you want to, and I recommend we record the session as well – this will only be used for me to look back on in case I need clarification on something we discussed. I will also be happy to send you the recording for your records. 

After our first session, I will send you all the notes I have made, along with any thoughts and suggestions I have, for you to take some time to think on, and organise your thoughts and ideas. 

Our second session is to look over the notes from our first session and chat about any other thoughts and ideas you’ve had since then in order for me to get a full picture of what you would like to do. 

In this session we will also put together a spreadsheet with your income and outgoings to give you visibility of how much you need to earn to be able to go full time self employed, along with some ideas of additional things you need to consider costs for as you become self employed. 

After our second session, I will put together a document with clear breakdowns of the different potential pathways for you, and create a 1.5 year plan with specific goals, which is broken down into three 6 month sections. This creation is just a draft! Once you receive it, you can take some time to absorb it, edit it as much as you want in line with your thoughts, and send it back for me to give advice and prompt thoughts on how realistic these goals are. If you’re not sure about editing, then sending back a list of questions is also a great way for us to work on this document together. I want to make sure you agree with the plan, and also have an idea of how you are going to get there. We can also do a video call to talk through the document and make those edits. 

In depth six month plan 

This is only available after a 1.5 year overall plan option. If you feel you don’t require the overall 1.5 year plan, I offer a goal setting service, which is very similar to this in depth six month plan service. 

Video call session 1: 1.5 hours
Video call session 2: 45 mins

Cost: £85

This is a chance to dig into the details of how you are going to achieve your first 6 months goals. We will look at all of your goals in depth, and break them down into actionable points, with realistic goal dates, with some flexibility factored in too. Depending on how many ideas you have, we may not be able to plan all of them, however the work we do should give you an idea, and help you build skills in order to do the breakdowns for the rest of your main goals. If you want more video call time, this will be charged at a reduced rate of £40 an hour.

In the first session we will explore and develop ideas to help you visualise your goals, along with techniques to complement your working style. By exploring different ways of working, we will identify the best option for you whilst building your action plan, which will include specific actionable tasks and checkpoints. 

We will then book in the second session, which will be anything from 1 – 4 weeks later, depending on the initial tasks and dates we have decided on. In the second session we will review the system you have created to help you keep on track, and break down some of the other plans into actionable tasks. 

Add on: monthly check in and guidance: 6 month special

Cost: £150
Time spent: 1 hour a month

I know that a lot of creatives struggle with staying on track, especially with the non-creative aspects of setting up a business. If you feel that having someone to stay accountable other than yourself will help you, I’m here to help!

With this service, I will check in with you once a month to see what you’ve done, and check them against the goals we initially set, plus help you adjust goals if needed. This usually takes place over email, however can be via WhatsApp if preferred. Some clients prefer to send either daily or weekly logs, which is absolutely fine, however I do then ask for you to do a monthly “round up” for me to look at. 

How to value yourself

Video call session: 1 hour 

Cost: £50

When starting up a new business, it can be almost impossible to know how to price yourself. In this one hour session, we will explore ways to understand the value of the service you are providing, what your industry standard prices are, and how they fit with you, who your ideal customer is, and more. 

Goal Setting

This is ideal for those of you who feel confident in your overall plan for your business already, but struggle with breaking your vision down into smaller, actionable goals.

Video call length: 2 hours
Cost: £100 

In this session we will explore your business idea/plan from all angles, and break them down into actionable points, with realistic goal dates, with some flexibility factored in too. Usually in a 2 hour session we will be able to create in depth goals for between 3-6 months into the future.

Once we have had one goal setting session, if you want to book regular sessions, we can discuss what the best frequency will be for you.

Discovery Session

Video call: 1.5 hours

Cost: £75

In this session we will discuss your wildest dreams and explore your skills and strengths to create a list of all the possible things you could do as a freelancer, and some ideas on how you might monetise those. 

Ideas Splurge

Video call: 1 hour 

Cost: £20 – £50 

I love the word splurge, I’m so glad I got to use it somewhere! This is for those of you who need an outside eye to think outside of the box to bring some new ideas into your work. Ideal for people who are already set up with the concept of their business, and have been successful in some aspects, but are perhaps struggling to push into the next stage of going full time. Because I can’t guarantee how many ideas I will give you, the price is flexible, with a minimum charge of £20 for an hour of my time, up to £50 (or more if you want) for whatever value you feel you got from the session.
