some commonly asked questions about my work

Can you handle my social media?

I am no longer taking on clients for full-service, ongoing social media management. For events or a short-term project, I may become your social media manager, but it is not a permanent role I am taking on anymore.

How do you charge?

I have flat fees for my coaching clients and for projects. I do not have ready-made answers for you, because my fees vary based on what you want. Even though they’re both writing projects, one company’s blog post with interviewed sources will not be the same quote as another company’s copywritten About page.

Projects require a 50% deposit. If you’re looking to hire for ongoing writing work, I always start with a paid trial to make sure we’re both happy with each other.

Can we meet in person?

Outside of on-site photography that requires traveling to an event or facility, I work remotely. My clients are globally based and some I have yet to meet in person. If you need a face-to-face initial consultation, I am unfortunately not the right consultant for you.

Can I hire you *right now*?

Depending on the project, I am usually booked 2-4 weeks out. When you fill out the consult form, I ask for an estimated project start date. During our call, we’ll go over your date options.

How do you handle intellectual property?

Thanks for checking! For blog posts, I require a named byline. For copywriting, I ask to be able to include the work in my portfolio. And for photography, you have the rights to do whatever you want with the photos; however, I retain the right to use it in my portfolio as it relates to my own professional use. Finally, any strategy and coaching documents are yours to keep for internal use. I may use some generalized data for my portfolio or as a case study, but this will be requested before publishing.

Are you taking on new clients?

Yes, in writing and photography.

What is your favorite donut?

I generally enjoy uniquely flavored cake donuts. However, the simple passionfruit-glazed yeast donut at Firecakes in Chicago is still one of my all-time favorites.
