Resources To Help You Build Your Practice
I’m not the perfect fit for every professional looking for marketing help. I work best with practices that have one or two owners who aren’t afraid to be different. However, I always invite people to do a Prospective Client Interview and if I can’t help them personally, I offer resources and suggestions to point them in the right direction. Here are a few resources to help you on your journey.
Education & Accountability
