Have you ever gotten so lost in the dream of what you want to do, that you find yourself overwhelmed, indecisive, and with no idea of what needs to be done next?

 

I work with people who struggle with this very thing. They have big ideas and big dreams but aren’t sure how to translate them into reality. They might be just starting out, starting a second business, or launching a new product, book or service. But what they share is the desire to take action and make real progress to build their dreams from the ground up.

That’s where I come in. I work with business owners and entrepreneurs who find themselves spinning their creative wheels in a period of growth and transition. We work together to define their vision, and get clarity on the right steps they need to take so they can finally get some traction and move forward for real progress.

If this sounds like you, think of me as your Creative Director On Call. I help you get unstuck by providing a fresh perspective, ideas and clear direction so you can move forward with intention, confidence, and the certainty of what you should be doing.

 

 Every fire starts with a spark.

 Let’s ignite something special together!

What is a Spark Session?
A Spark Session is like a brainstorming session on steroids. You have a problem and you need a solution. You’re out of ideas, and need a fresh perspective. A Spark Session starts with you, your business, your problem and where you’re stuck.

When you schedule your Spark Session, you’ll be asked to complete a questionnaire where you can outline what you’d like to focus on in your Spark Session. For your actual Spark Session, you’ll be on a phone call, Skype call or Zoom session with Deanne Marie. She may ask you a few clarifying questions, and you’ll talk together, and then she’ll provide you with her ideas, insights, and what she sees as possible solutions for your problem. Don’t be surprised if the call goes way beyond what you thought your initial question was. Deanne often sees things that you can’t.

What’s included?
A Spark Session includes a comprehensive pre-call questionnaire where you can state your challenge or problem, offer background information and other relevant information about you and your business.

Then, Deanne reviews your questionnaire and does her own research before getting on the Spark Session call with you. She may reach out to you for specific additional information before the call, so she is as prepared as possible.

The call itself is 45 minutes. Deanne records the call and will send you a transcript of the call within a week of your Spark Session. Then, you have the option of scheduling a complimentary 15-minute follow-up call with Deanne.

How much does it cost?
A 45-minute Spark Session is $475, and includes a recording and a 15-minute follow up call.
How long is the Spark Session?
Spark Sessions are scheduled for 45 minutes, however, if Deanne’s on fire, she’s not going to shut it off at 45 minutes.
Can I get a longer Spark Session?
In Deanne’s experience, 45 minutes is plenty of time for most issues. If you have multiple items you want to explore, you should book additional sessions.
Can I record the Spark Session?
Yes, you are welcome to record the call, however, Deanne will record the call and send you a transcript as well.
Who owns the ideas that come out of Spark Sessions?
Any business ideas, slogans, taglines, or product ideas that Deanne comes up with during your Spark Session for your business are yours, and yours to pursue.
Is my business information confidential?
Yes, Deanne will not share your business ideas, problems, issues, or anything proprietary – or anything at all! – with anyone (unless required by law).
When can I schedule my Spark Session?

Here’s what real business owners like you are saying about Spark Sessions …

I’ve been in the room when Deanne has come up with game changing ideas. She has limitless creativity and enthusiasm, and she pours into people in a remarkable way. She’s a like a business psychic. In my 30 years in business, I’ve met very few people who combine an analytical mind with a creative mind. She’s one of them. I think she’s brilliant.

 – Larry Broughton, CEO, broughtonHOTELS

In less than 45 minutes, we named my company, bought the domain, developed a marketing strategy for my upcoming webinar, developed a strategy for the subsequent webinar, and hashed through the decisions that have been weighing on my mind regarding Facebook. On top of all this, she is INCREDIBLY giving and quickly becoming one of my favorite people.

– Susan Wurzelbacher, Area Manager & Arbonne Independent Consultant

Every time we’ve had a session with Deanne she has come up with some wonderful ideas to help us market our company better, reach out to a different demographic and just grow our business. It really helps to have someone on our team I can rely on when I need ideas that are going to be new and different.

– Dan Spangler, Owner, A Dog’s Dream Pet Resort and Day Spa

Working with Deanne not only gave me the confidence to move forward with a business that I have been wanting to develop, but she helped me to really hone in on what I want to offer, as well as my target audience. One hour with her and I felt more clear on what I needed to do than trying to come up with something by myself for weeks. She brings clarity, delight and excitement to a process that can be otherwise daunting and murky.

– Joanna Ke, Actor, Script Consultant and Screenwriter
