Do you want to set up a blog of build your website for your business? Do you need to find a suite of online tools that let you collaborate? Do you want to add mobile technology to your workflow?
If the answer to any of those questions is yes, chances are you're not sure how to proceed.
You're not alone.
Today's software and apps offer a set of choices, no matter what your needs are. Those choices can be intimidating and overwhelming. It can be difficult to know where to start.
That's where I can help.
I work with freelancers of all stripes, small businesses, and individuals who want to use web and mobile tools to make them more efficient and to lower their costs.
We can navigate through the range of technologies and applications out there. I can help you focus on what's right for you or for your business. I can help you get the most out of the choices that you make.
My coaching services include, but aren’t limited to:
My coaching projects have included:
The process is simple. First, we spend half an hour taking stock of your needs and determining whether my services are right for you. I don’t charge for that initial 30 minute consultation. If I can’t help you, I’ll let you know. I don’t feel comfortable taking your money unless I can help you.
If we do work together, then based on your needs I recommend the tools and services that I believe are best suited to you or your business.
My recommendations are impartial — I don’t have any business or consulting relationships with the companies behind the applications and services that I recommend. No one is paying me to steer you their way. And I’m not pushing the latest and so-called greatest apps or tools on you. I can help you more effectively and efficiently take advantage of the technologies that you currently use.
At the end of the process, you’ll have more confidence with the tools and technologies at your fingertips. I’ll cut you loose at some point in the process, but I will there to advise and work with you as needed.
The answer varies, depending on your needs. But there’s one constant, no matter who you are or what you’re trying to learn: coaching is a partnership. You’re as involved in the process as I am.
Here’s how a typical coaching session plays out:
If this is your first session, we go over what we discussed in your initial consultation. I usually have a few more questions for you and will present any recommendations I have. From there, we discuss how those recommendations fit your needs. Or don’t. Whenever possible, I’ll give you a live demonstration.
Then, I assign you homework. That could be anything from sketching an outline of a workflow or working with an application. Homework is essential. It not only gets you hands-on with technology, but it also gets you comfortable working on your own. On top of that, it helps build habits and the discipline that are essential for mastering the tools and techniques we look at.
During subsequent sessions, we review the previous session and go over your homework. You should have questions but if you don’t, I usually do. From there, we fine tune the processes and procedures until you’re ready to work on your own.
Finally, within six hours of completing a coaching session I send you a recap email. That email summarizes what we discussed and outlines your homework. It’s a useful reminder of what we worked on.
I charge $40 (USD) per hour, payable using PayPal. But I don’t believe in the 45 minute hour that some professionals bill. I only charge you for the time we spend working together. If you pay for multiple sessions in advance, the following prices apply:
|Number of Sessions||Price (in USD)|
You can roll any unused time over into one or more future sessions, or I can refund you the difference.
My name is Scott Nesbitt and I’m a technology coach who can help you navigate the confusing array of technologies and applications out there. Working together, I can help you focus on the technology that’s right for you or for your business, and can help you get the most out of the choices that you make.
I do consultations and coaching sessions in person, by instant messaging, over Skype, in a Google+ Hangout, or by email. Or a combination of the above. This gives us an opportunity to discuss your needs and the available options in detail, and for you to ask questions.
