Last week I wrote about the top 10 online dating profile mistakes men are making (excepting profile names and photos—those are big enough balls of wax to tackle separately!). Now, as promised, I will …Read more →

A STRATEGY JUST FOR YOU
If you want to be the best version of yourself—someone who takes risks, makes their own rules, and goes after what they want—I'll help you do just that. Since there is no one like you, we will work together to design a personalized program to meet your unique wants and needs. Using the process below, we will discover your desires and strengths, set meaningful goals, and develop a game plan that fits your definition of success. I will pull from my varied experience and education in coaching, communications, personal development, art / design, and leadership to help you gain a deep understanding of who you are and how you can bring your true talents into every area of your life.
Get clear about what you really want (your dream job, relationship, lifestyle)
Define who you are, where you’re at, and the strengths and skills that will propel you forward
Design a step-by-step game plan to get you from point A (where you are) to point B (where you want to be)
Commit to the plan and make continual progress towards your goal(s)

WAYS WE'LL WORK TOGETHER
A BIT ABOUT ME
Beth Cook, Creative Business and Life Strategies
For over fifteen years I have worked with individuals and teams to create successful businesses and lives of all sorts. I see the best in people and their endeavors—things they might not even see in themselves. For me, there is no greater joy than helping people dismantle roadblocks, boldly be their best selves, and get what they want out of life. I’ve been on a few adventures myself...living in Florence and Moscow, earning multiple degrees, starting a dating events company, running my own PR business, teaching wine classes, mentoring youth, and taking up ice skating. To me, life at its best is full of curiosity and experimentation. Every risk I’ve ever taken has been incredibly scary and exciting—and each one has paid off. I have learned how to design a personal and professional life I love. Now I want to help you do the same. * * * Previous clients: Best PR (Craigslist, Klout, YouNoodle, Lulu, Spoonflower, Houzz), Ulysses Press, SFMOMA, Creativity Explored, StartX at Stanford, Washington Square Arts & Films Education: Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC), The Coaches Training Institute; M.F.A.

WHAT MY AWESOME CLIENTS SAY
Beth is a wonderful coach and possesses what every client seeks—kindness, patience, empathy. Anyone would be fortunate to work with her.
I tend to be the one helping & advising other people, but everyone needs a coach! Business-related coaching sessions led naturally to discussions about my personal life goals. As a result, I feel more accomplished in both areas.
My work with Beth has helped to infuse my business and life with momentum and confidence. She encourages me to step into my greatest potential. I am so grateful for her!
Online dating isn’t nearly as simple as it seems, my friends. You really just have one shot to make an impression, or be dismissed and/or forgotten forever.
