If you’re like me and you just like to have everything written down so your brain can process it and you can refer back to it, this coaching program was designed for you. Sometimes putting our thoughts into words makes them a little more real, makes our ideas clearer, and gets our point across better. My love for written communication is the reason I decided to focus my virtual assistant offerings to just transcription services – WORDS are important, words matter, and everyone processes information in different ways.
With my text based coaching and consulting services you’ll have access at your leisure and everything will be in text format with a slight twist; we’re not going to rely on plain ole’ email because it’s just not 100% reliable. I’ll set up a fresh new project in Asana just for you and me so we can discuss your business and your goals.
Yes, this is one-on-one individualized coaching just for you. We’ll work on things like your big focus projects, getting new clients, adding secondary streams of income, and making your work enjoyable.
Let’s get started today!
The cost is $30 per week, recurring for as long as you’d like. But before you send me any money please fill out this quick form to make sure we’re a good fit to work with each other, after which you’ll receive an invoice for the first week via Freshbooks to your email.
I’ll have your Asana project set up within 24 hours of receiving payment and we’ll be ready to roll right away. I look forward to working with you and helping your business grow one step at a time.

Loretta Oliver, married to the comic book geek of her dreams and mother of four boys ages 13 to 17, has been working from home full time since 2001, starting out working for others and gradually moving into working for herself. Now she has busy transcription service business, two profitable blogs, and a host of other internet marketing projects on her virtual resume.
Why weekly? Over the years I’ve found that monthly clients tend to forget about the service mid-month and then pile everything on either at the very beginning or the very end of their 30 days, nearest the payment date. Nothing reminds you that you have an active ongoing service like paying the tab. Setting the payments up for weekly keeps things top of mind for both of us, so you’re always one step closer to your goals. No slacking allowed. Weekly also allows for short term coaching and consulting sessions if you need help staying focused on a particular project or one small aspect of your business.
What is Asana? Asana is a project management system, very similar to Basecamp. It will allow us to keep threaded conversations, share files, and more. Asana will send you an email notification of replies and tasks in the system, and you can also send a response via email without visiting the site. It’s very easy to use (and it’s a free tool that you can use with your own clients as well)
What if I need to skip a week? It can’t be all business all the time. Life happens and that’s okay. If you’re going to be on vacation for the week, need to step away, or whatever reasons pops up and need to skip coaching for that week, just let me know and there won’t be a charge for that 7 day period, then we’ll pick things up right where we left off. That’s the nice thing about this format, it’s very flexible.
How do I pay? You’ll receive an invoice each week via Freshbooks, when you click through your invoice you can submit payment via Paypal. (Paypal is set up to accept various forms of payment, including most credit cards.)
Are there things not covered? I like to say you can ask me anything – and for the most part that’s true. However, I cannot provide you with tax advice or legal advice in regards to your business. I strongly recommend hiring an expert in those matters. I can help you find someone to assist you with those things (though for taxes I recommend finding someone local to you) but I am not a tax professional or a lawyer, so I’ll have to skip those questions.
