focused, objective, strategic coaching services for makeup artists who need a sanity check

a la carte coaching

What Is A La Carte Coaching?

A la carte coaching was born out of a passion to provide a service I desperately needed as a new and semi-established makeup artist. 

When I started out, I wanted someone (other than my friends and family) to check over my website and give me an honest opinion on whether or not it was "good enough". 

I wanted to know if they thought people would actually book my services, or test my website to make sure things are working, or actually read my emails and blog. 

I wanted to know if I was using the "right" photos to showcase my work (and in the early days, a lot of the pictures were taken from my cellphone). 

I wanted to know how to respond to clients so that they'd actually trust and book me, without offering discounts or incentives.

I wanted to come up with unique and fun services that could boost my revenue, without copying those services from other people.

I wanted to know when and how to work for free -- and how to protect myself

I wanted to meet and connect with new photographers and vendors so that my business would grow.

I wanted to know how to build my pro-kit and be prepared for my clients.

But I couldn't afford to hire a coach or pay for another online course. I also didn't have time to download another {worthless} freebie download or binge another business-related podcast. I just wanted answers to my specific questions and needs.


What Is A La Carte Coaching?

From 2007 to 2017, I was a military officer. To be honest, I "did" the military for my university scholarship & a car. I didn't really love being in the military though. Waking up early. Lots of hurrying up and waiting. Red tape. You know, military-y type stuff.

I would be remiss if I didn't share with you that I attribute much of my success to the leadership skills I learned in the military. I acquired a ton of grit, thick skin, quick-thinking, "adapt and overcome" leadership. I was able to hone in on my visionary / strategic thinking Enneagram Type 3 personality. This is probably why this beauty industry outsider is still kicking strong today! 

I started my makeup artistry business in Monterey, California in late 2014 (because my friends said I should because I'm good at makeup!). Monterey, a mecca for destination weddings in the US, was not an "easy" place to start. But in the Spring of 2015, I booked four weddings (one was a dud!) not because I was the best makeup artist or because I asked everyone and their mother to refer me... it was because I learned all about web development, SEO, and marketing early on. I also focused on my client experience SO much.

You read that right. I started & grew my business because I taught myself the back-end stuff of how websites & content "works" online.

I've since moved my business twice since then, once across the pond to Germany. Ran successful (and unsuccessful) workshops, I lead an entrepreneur group for 3+ years, published a book sold on Target & Wal-Mart (and HugenDubel, Germany's largest book retailer), run a podcast, started an e-commerce shop, and oh yea, I also won the 2019 On The Rise award with Honeybook + The Rising Tide Society.

the investment

Look, I know how much makeup artists make... we work SO hard for every dollar we earn.

I developed a la carte coaching specifically for freelance makeup artists who don't have a ridiculous marketing budget to blow. Artists who rely on their income to keep their businesses up and running, food on the table, vacation money, rent, luxury handbags, whatever!

Every client, every job is hard-earned.

A la carte coaching services start at $100.

If ALL the a la carte services sound amazing, consider applying for my MUA Mastermind.
If anything starting at $100 is too much for you, check out my Template Shop before you leave.
