PRIVATE “DEEP-DIVE” MENTORSHIP
AS A BUSINESS STRATEGY MENTOR I WORK BEST WITH PEOPLE WHO OTHERS GO TO FOR GUIDANCE.
You are doing work that impacts other people’s lives (or businesses) – be it as a coach, consultant, trainer, writer, teacher, guide, or creator-of-things-that-matter.
You’re a leader in what you do (or maybe you’re a ‘rising star’ in your space).
But one thing that is special about you is that:
YOU AREN’T A “FOLLOW THE LEADER” TYPE, NOW ARE YOU?
You know exactly what I’m talking about, right?
In many ways you look like you fit, you’re able to show up at conferences or just online and play the part but deep inside…
The ’10 step formulas’ and ‘be a carbon copy of me’ systems doing the rounds on the internet no longer chime with you. In fact, you’re starting to get downright turned off by them.
You haven’t come this far to be told you have to fit into a box in order to be good enough.
SO WHERE TO FROM HERE?
Let’s not beat about the bush: you’re smart.
You’d never say this out loud but when you’re in a group, you are used to being the ‘smartest person in the room’.
(And that can get a tad frustrating because everyone looks to you… but who can you turn to?)
Bottom line is, you’re good at what you do.
And you’ve got this far for a reason.
(Some of the people who come to me have many thousands of people following what they do, others are more niche and word-of-mouth…. but either way you have clients, there’s an attraction to what you do and you feel that’s going to be growing).
If that’s you, then welcome home:
THIS STRATEGY MENTORSHIP IS AS UNIQUE AS YOU ARE
This is not based on some generic idea of what a business owner of your type ‘should’ do.
Here we get real and start with you: with what you’re wanting, what you bring… and we come up with an ease-based strategy for it that fits you in every sense.
Starting from the place you are at today.
You see, I get that at your stage, you don’t need another course. In fact the last thing you need is another “cram-yourself-into-a-box” template (right?!). So what you get here flexes to fit with where you are with things today and who you are as well.
For a full day I sit with you, see you for who you are, and we create a strategy that is made to fit every piece of what you want.
Result: you walk away with a plan that is so made for you, you’ll wonder if I moved into your head overnight.
Instead of ending the day with a ton of things to add on to your plate, clients often use the word ‘relief’ to describe the experience: we take lot of stuff off your never ending maybe-I-should-be-doing-that-too list… and instead replace them with one or two bright shining nuggets of clarity that make all the difference (and, let’s be straight, also make you money with more ease than before).
WHAT THIS IS NOT:
1. This is not based on a generic formula for business or life.
What makes this mentorship unusually effective is that it really is based on you. So it isn’t some sort of ‘follow the leader situation’ where you’re told “be a carbon copy of me and magical unicorns will follow!”.
Instead I sit with you, hear how far you’re come, and see you – not just the “outside” you but the nuggets inside that get overlooked among the should-dos we all get lost in on the interwebs. Then I apply my decade plus of strategic know-how to create a custom path that cuts through the dross to your best next steps with much more ease.
Every solution you walk away with has been hatched and tailored for you to make the most of your strengths and natural flow.
(When you are the biggest asset in your business – which you are – this part makes all the difference).
2. This is also not regular business coaching where I am holding your hand or checking up on you
(Many of my clients already have a coach and that works great!)
I know you’re a grown up at what you do. So I meet you where you are at. So to be crystal clear:
3. This is not yet another “beginner thing” that is below your level
For this mentorship, I ONLY take on people who are in some way established in what they do (for example this is not appropriate for people who are yet to have paying clients):
– Some clients who come to me for mentorship have been TED talkers, speakers, or writers/bloggers with a global audience.
– Others haven’t done those things but have had good press for what they do (and also have clients).
– Others are simply established, with some other form of attraction to what they are doing (even if it isn’t as shiny yet).
Bottom line: you have a brand and a business. You like to make things happen. And you aren’t someone who wants to spend your time messing about guessing what to do next – you understand the value of investing in something in order to get things sorted.
I am taking you on as a rising star who is ALREADY doing great things… and wants to do them even greater, on your terms. If you like the sound of that, let’s do this.
(Note: I don’t list most client names publicly to protect their privacy – we don’t name drop! – however if you want to ask some people who have worked with me about their experience I’ll happily put you in touch privately if we agree this is a fit after you apply below).
HOW IT WORKS
1 Day: Private Deep-Dive Mentorship
That’s you and me in person fully focused on your business for a full day (we can meet at various locations, including London and New York, or by video online).
Includes a bonus follow up Skype chat a few weeks later to make sure you have everything you need ready to roll.
Why a day? Think of it like 8 sessions in one go… but a) you don’t have to wait for results and b) you get way more impact as momentum isn’t lost in between each session!
(Typically breakthroughs come a few hours in and that isn’t something that can be replicated with stand alone hour sessions which is why we work this intensive way).
This is the most popular option; it is right for self-driven people who know that once you have clarity you’ll go off and do it.
10 Month Private Mentorship
For more info on this option drop a message below.
Mentorship is by application only.
We can discuss whether a 1 day intensive or ongoing is best for you once we’re in touch via the application form below 🙂
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT WORKING WITH MARIANNE
Marianne made a suggestion to me about a way to run my business that would suit my personality and aims in a way I’d never imagined possible… but it was different from what so many people were saying you had to do in order to be successful.
The idea seemed almost too easy at first, so I continued banging my head against a virtual wall…. until one day I implemented her advice.
To my delight, she was right about everything: my last year has been the most successful ever, and I have fallen in love with my business again. (For the first time the income and growth side feels ease filled and very much like me).
Her out-of-the-box approach to growing a business made all the difference; she didn’t put me into a ‘one size fits all’ way of doing business: instead she shone a light on a way forward that is a perfect fit, and it has become the best thing I’ve done to date.
Marianne is a top business thinker who never loses sight of the ultimate goal: who you really are, and the life you are wanting to create on every level. If you’ve ever looked at a business coach and wondered if they were going to ‘get’ you, and if they had what it takes, then you’re in the right place.Jen Gresham
My private day mentorship with Marianne was over 6 months ago and it created epiphanies that are still having an impact today.
From the start, she was brilliant at understanding not just my business but also my personal values, personality and priorities, before identifying smart steps for an approach that really suits me. As a result I’ve since significantly grown my business in ways that fit me (plus I’m much clearer on what’s next and why).
I have never met anyone as good at strategy as Marianne.
I travelled over from Paris for a mentorship day with her… and I’m very glad I did, as looking back this day has proved worth *many* times more than my investment in it.Lyvia Cairo
NOTE: I only take on clients when I can see exactly how my input can make a tangible change, so they’ll make back many times the investment. That’s one reason I’m very selective about who I work with 🙂
If the above sounds like you, please let me know about your business: where you are at with it right now, what you’d like to sort out with me – and the difference that would make to you.
