Pursuit with Passion Branding Coaching and Website Building

Create your brand.  Build your website. 
Get more clients.

Gold BG Pattern.jpg

When you think about it, you can almost see it. 
Sort of. 

You have a vision for what you want to be doing, but you’re a little overwhelmed with what that looks like.
You know who your clients are, but don’t know how to say it in a way that “clicks.”
And, you’re tired of trying to figure it out because time is of the essence.


This is where I can help.  

Before I was a certified professional coach, I oversaw a marketing design department at a large magazine publisher in New York City.  We did it all: advertisements, marketing collateral , logo design, sales decks…

After almost 20-years in the industry and feeling the itch for a new challenge, I changed gears and went back into coaching (Check out the whole story here).  

When it came time for me to get my business up and running, I knew exactly what to do, how to talk about it, and how to design and market it.

The more I listened, though, the more I kept hearing the same challenge:
having a new certification or degree didn’t prepare people for how to market their business and create new clients.

I knew that I was in a unique position to jump in.


If this is sounds like you, you’re probably:

Frustrated that there’s a whole marketing and branding side to your biz that you seem to be reinventing the wheel for.

Overwhelmed by how much has to get done when your focus should be getting clients and paying the bills.

Confused, unsure, and overloaded by all the options and information out there.

Afraid you may be making the wrong decisions that are going to cost you both time and money.

You’re also probably feeling like you’re way behind the 8-ball.  


You’re looking at other people’s businesses and websites and thinking, “These are fine, but I want mine to be different,” because you know that yours has to reflect you.  So, maybe you’ve thrown something quickly together that you’re not thrilled about just so you have something, or maybe you’re about to DIY it but don’t know where to start.

I want you to know something important: I get it.

There’s so much pressure at the beginning to get up and out. So, I’m going to give you my first piece of coaching:

No one figures this out on their own

In this program, we’re going to roll up our sleeves and give you the one-on-one, hands-on attention you need to get your messaging, branding, and your Squarespace website up and working FOR you to grab your client’s attention.

Scott did so much more than design my beautiful website. He helped me articulate my vision, develop my brand, and share my passion! Scott has a unique talent for not just listening, but truly hearing his clients’ messages and helping their customers do the same. Scott is an authentic, creative, and insightful person who was meant to do this work!  Thank you, Scott, for supporting me during this very exciting (and sometimes terrifying) time in my life! I’ve truly enjoyed partnering with you on this journey.

  • How to talk about your products and services in a way that answers the exact problem your clients are looking to solve.

  • What makes you stand out, even in a crowded field.

You get to reserve two weeks on my calendar and at the end you'll have a beautiful Squarespace website.  You’ll forward me your content and I'll build all the functionality you'll need and advise you on best practices. You’ll receive:

I was referred to Scott by a colleague who could not stop talking about how much she benefited from his help. At first, I was skeptical based on past experiences with “tech guys.” Soon I realized that Scott is so much more. From a technology perspective the outcome of our work (i.e., a beautiful and functional website) felt like a bi-product of our ongoing dialogue about my business, style, goals, etc. and in the end, the most unexpected and important outcome of Scott’s constructive and strategic coaching was not the technology. It was a laser-sharp clarity about my vision for the business and message I hoped to portray to prospective clients. Because Scott helped me focus on what matters in such a professional, supportive, and responsive way, he has my highest possible recommendation.

I had been dreading redoing my website for over a year. I hate making decisions around design and struggled to feel confident knowing what I want. Scott — in just a few conversations — was able to nail my style, my brand, the functionality, everything I wanted in a website, without me even knowing what that was myself! I loved it instantly and was excited to incorporate this new look into everything I did. He not only rebooted my website; in many ways it was a total reboot of my business, too.

Have Questions? Here are some answers.


    Most of my clients are just launching their business and I’m so excited to partner with them.  I’ve also worked with entrepreneurs who have been at this for several years and know this is the right time for a total re-think and re-launch.


    The cost of this program does not include a Squarespace membership.  Squarespace has several tiers of pricing, and we require at least the business-level.  You can view the various plans here.


    Because it is one of the easiest platforms to learn the basics of and doesn’t require you to have any technical know-how to dive into. While there is always a learning curve, the Squarespace platform is consistent, clean, responsive, and reliable.

    One of the other benefits is that while you must purchase, connect, and update templates and multiple plug-ins for a WordPress site (that require constant fixing when they break), Squarespace builds plugins into their platform and is continually adding new ones. Squarespace also has partnerships with many other online services to seamlessly integrate their functionality into their sites, sometimes even for free. Oh, and it automatically makes sure your site is mobile-friendly and has built-in SEO support. What’s not to love?


    The coaching component takes a minimum of three weeks, and custom website design typically takes 2-3 weeks once all assets (text, images, etc.) are supplied in their totality. As you'll most likely be writing much of your copy, you'll want to give yourself at least 2-3 weeks to complete this as well. In total, the program typically takes between 2-3 months and generally books 4-6 weeks in advance.


    Just e-mail me and I can step you through how to make the change. (If it’s an easy one and I have time, I may be able to jump in and do it because once you’re part of my tribe, you always will be). If it's a more comprehensive request, we can discuss a payment plan that works.


    Absolutely. I’ve worked with clients to create business cards, brochures, guides, posters, client intake forms, you name it. There is a separate charge for this, of course, but it’s all very doable and reasonable.


    The short answer is no, but the Pursuit with Passion program is setting you up for massive success in this area. You will ultimately create your own copy as you are the best expert on YOU, but the coaching module is designed to provide you many of the copy points that you will use throughout your site.

    For images and photography, Squarespace has partnerships with outside sources for both paid and free stock photos. I can also review any photography of yourself you already have to see how suitable it would be.


    If you already have a domain, we can either just connect it to Squarespace, or transfer it over completely. If you are moving to Squarespace from WordPress, you can import pages from your WordPress site as long as it’s with WordPress 3.2 or higher. There are some limitations on what can be imported, which we can discuss on our consultation call.


    Squarespace does an incredible job with their built-in SEO capabilities, allowing many websites to be found early in Google rankings when searching under unique terms (such as your business name or actual name, as long as there are no well-known businesses or figures with the same name, of course). Searching under broader terms, however, will quickly educate you in the longer-term game of SEO, as it takes time, strategy, and effort to break into broader search rankings.

    SEO is a process that can take sometimes up to a year to see results in, and rewards those who update their sites, blogs, and other connected accounts, as well as have other websites that link back to yours (like Yelp, guest-posting on another blog, or being written up in your local newspaper). Time rewards those who are committed to the process, and I can provide guidance and strategies to help you with your SEO after we complete our work together.

Scott is simply tremendous at everything he does! Not only is Scott incredibly creative, smart, and extremely talented at website design, but he is kind, patient, and a pleasure to work with. While creating my website, Scott listened to my ideas and personal style, and he ultimately created a beautiful website. I am so pleased with the outcome and I cannot recommend Scott enough to other entrepreneurs!
