Do you feel like your marketing is stuck in a rut?
Indie Consultants (and Experienced Freelancers): I help you get more leads with that marketing magic 🧙♂️, including teaching you how to get on podcasts, get more traffic through Google, start conversations with influencers, and reach out to potential clients with email outreach.
From the inside, it’s hard to know what to work on next to market yourself and grow your business:
- Should you test out that new service offering?
- What about trying a new positioning statement?
- How about investing in a marketing campaign?
When you don’t see the results you want, it’s crucial to get an external perspective on what to try next.
Maybe you already have a decent amount of clients knocking on your door, but they’re outside of your specialization or positioning.
Sure, they’re keeping the lights on, but you’re anxious to get working on your preferred projects.
Or possibly you’re already done a bunch of marketing, but you haven’t seen the results you want.
If you could find a system that works to get you more clients (and projects), you’d stick with it. But so far? Nothing has worked.
How are you supposed to figure all of this marketing stuff in the middle of doing your client work? You can’t take time off; you’ve got bills to pay.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you had someone in your corner? A trusted advisor and sounding board? Someone who could help you figure out what you should do next to market and grow your business (and what you can safely ignore)?
exactly what to do next 🚀
- Getting off the marketing hamster wheel and feeling like you’re making progress building a business in your market
- Working fewer hours per week (without feeling guilty for taking time off from client work)
- Dramatically increasing your income (without awkward conversations with clients)
- Receiving personalized, step-by-step guidance about what to do next from someone who has already been there (no cookie-cutter advice here)
Put the analysis paralysis behind you. Learn what to do next to market and grow your business by working 1-on-1 with a 15+-year Independent Consultant and Digital Marketer (that’s me).
When we work together, you’ll get no-nonsense marketing and growth advice that you can immediately put into action. This advice isn’t generic “hand-wavy” principles. This advice is insight and perspective explicitly customized to you, your business, your goals, and your current situation.
Working with Kai helped me realize that I can do marketing and sales. It helped me become a real business, not just someone who is getting projects by chance. I’m getting more proactive in creating opportunities for myself and feeling more confident with my marketing efforts, and I am getting new clients and projects as a result.

How coaching works
In short: coaching is specific to what you need to grow your business, market yourself, and get more leads. You come with questions and challenges. I ask questions, share my perspective, and give you answers. Together, we define a plan. I’ll help you get started (and remind you to do the work).
First, we have an introductory call to discuss your current situation and the change you’re looking for. I’ll ask a few questions to learn about your goals and your business and answer any questions you have for me. After that, if we both feel working together would be a good fit, we’ll start our work with:
- An invite to a private, 1-on-1 Slack channel
- Your kickoff questionnaire (the Business Health Analysis)
Next, we’ll have a 90-minute long kickoff ‘Working Session’ call over Zoom. We’ll review your answers to the Business Health Analysis, I’ll ask you questions about your business and goals, we’ll discuss the outcomes you want to work towards, and start to plan what you should work on next.
After that, you’ll receive your Growth Action Plan. This ‘do this, not that’ action plan lays out my recommended path forward over the coming months. We’ll use this as an initial map in our work together.
Then, ongoing, we have a 50-minute call every other week. We’ll discuss your progress, brainstorm on how you can overcome challenges, answer questions, celebrate victories, and plan what you should work on next.
Quarterly, we meet for a Quarterly Business Review. In this 90-minute meeting, we’ll talk through your business and marketing and make a plan for the coming three months.
Finally, if you get stuck along the way, you can ask questions in your private Slack channel or over email. This Slack channel is your space to ask questions, share updates, or get advice.
I’m a businessman first, a marketer second, and a marketing coach third. I’ve got answers to your business and marketing questions based on real-world, hard-won experience.
Kai helped me figure out what would help my sales process and build trust quicker with prospects. He offered a lot of feedback on our sales collateral and the release of our new website. I also got a lot more clarity on what I need to do to develop new lead channels for my business.
The two biggest things Kai helped me with were developing a recurring offering (which I had been really stuck on creating given our business model) and creating an offboarding process.
I had immediate results, closing two clients for the recurring offering and earning a lot more work from the first two offboarding calls I had with clients.
I one hundred percent recommend Kai. I already have and I’ll continue to. I think really his approach and the way he thinks is very different than mine in the best way.
Plus, I think there’s so much value to that in terms of he doesn’t try and pretend to know everything, but he knows where to look. It built my trust, and it was really refreshing to be put on to other resources.

Availability is limited
I only work with four 1-on-1 coaching clients at a time. I currently have two spots available. And I’d love to work with you. Fill out this form to let me know you’re interested. I’ll reply back to you in ~1-2 business days.
“How much does this cost?”
1-on-1 Marketing Coaching work together is only $1,500 per month. I’d like to work with you for an initial three-month engagement to gauge whether we’re a good fit.
I only want to work together if I’m providing value for you and your business. At the end of our first three months together, we’ll discuss if it makes sense to continue. If we decide to stop our work together, we’ll wrap up the quarter and make sure you have a clear plan for what to work on next.
I was already working on my consultancy full-time when I hired Kai as a coach. A year later, I’ve:
• Increased my revenue by 60%
• Streamlined the type of work I do
• Started to make better use of my team
And, most important, I’m far less stressed out in my day today.
Even with a great team of freelancers, being the only employee in a consultancy can be lonely. Kai is there as a sounding board for ideas, a reviewer of proposals, and is a master at rewriting important emails.
