What Is Business Coaching?

Unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. You get to focus on being your best, while as your coach, I will challenge you, encourage you, and guide you through the complete process. I’m your advocate and your accountability parter with a common goal of helping you achieve real and lasting change that will make both you and yoru business better.

Who Is Coaching For?

Coaching is for those with the willingness and desire to learn! It can be for the new business owner who isn’t interested in reinventing the wheel. They know what they want, have the desire to make it happen, and would prefer to dive in with the help of an expert by their side to build a productive and money-making business quickly and efficiently. It’s also for the experienced business owner who feels stuck or perhaps that they have lost their momentum. They need a helping hand to jumpstart things and make their business more relevant in today’s society.

What is The Process Like?

Coaching is a very personal experience. At Someday Consulting, we know that you’re all coming from various starting points. You have different levels of experience and unique needs and goals specific to you. It’s why we believe it’s important to learn a little bit more about you and what you’re looking for before we customize a program specifically for you.

1. Ready! Set! Strategize!

These are literally brainstorming power hours. You would be amazed at what we can accomplish in that short amount of time. Let’s take a concept or two, expand and build on some possibilities, and then figure out a detailed plan of action so you can build and develop it on your own. Topics can be specific to your choice of subject area (e.g. marketing, social media, branding, business plan, establishing relationships with vendors, operations and systems, ….) ( One 60 to 75 minute session)

2. Business Coaching - Three Session Pack

A short-term solution for businss owners who want to make some basic changes in their business. Perhaps you want to figure out how to get more exposure to potential clients? Maybe you have a new product line you want to introduce? Maybe you need some cost-effective marketing strategies that won’t break the bank? We can even work with you to develop your social media skills. No topic is off limits! Let us know what you want to work on and we can make it happen. Three brainstorming powerhour sessions to be used as you want!

Ideal for the business entrepreneur trying to figure out if business coaching or consulting is right for them.

3. Website And Social Media Assessment

What is the message you’re sending out to potential clients and customers? Does your website and social media match your brand or hurt it? Many times business owners are communicating a message they might not even be aware of. Let’s take a hard look at your website and your social media (your 2 main ones) and then have an open and honest conversation about what is working, what’s not, along with some suggestions on ways you can make it better communicate the brand and image you want. In addition, we’ll provide you with a summary list of our findings and our suggestions for improvement so you have something concrete to work on and pass along to your website designer.

About Me

Cathy MacRae is not your average entrepreneur. After a 15 year public teaching career (as a middle school band and choir teacher), she jumped feet first into her journey as a wedding planner (AKA small business owner and entrepreneur) in the fall of 2008. She will be the first to admit that trying to build a business in the middle of a recession was not easy, but it really forced her to focus and hone her skills to master basic marketing techniques and business practices. Within a few short years, she built Creative Weddings Planning & Design into a successful wedding and design business in Calgary, Canada. She primarily does weddings there and in the nearby Canadian Rocky Mountain communities of Banff, Canmore, and Lake Louise that attract clients from around the globe. Over the past few years, her passion for teaching has resurfaced, and she felt a strong desire to bring her two careers together. Someday Consulting is the vehicle that has allowed her to do that. Nowadays, she loves working with creative professionals, teaching them to build their brand, develop their marketing techniques, and establish a revenue-generating business that they can be proud of and rely on for steady and growing income. She has been featured at local workshops and at international conferences presenting on the topics including social media tips, digital marketing strategies, and branding your business. She stays active in the industry planning weddings, serving as the Director of Operations for the Alberta International Band Festival, and acting as the Country Coordinator for Western Canada with the Association of Bridal Consultants. When not speaking, coaching or planning weddings, you can find her travelling the world, curling up with a good book and her bischon-shitzu (Jazzy), and enjoying good food and wine with friends and family.
