What our customers are saying

When I met Cathleen I was pursuing a dream of writing a book, a book about hope, purpose and meaning in life. We immediately connected.

When I sat down with Cathleen to share my story, she embraced it, believed in its message, and she wanted it to be told. We went to work.

When I worked with Cathleen she made me reach my true potential. At a more basic level, she instilled in me the importance of “structure” to deliver in the end a solid product. But above all, Cathleen helped me transform a simple text into a more compelling and spellbinding story. I am grateful!

Pre-Project Process

I always find that the best results in anything are obtained when there is a personal connection to the work at hand. For this reason, I make it a point to hold an initial consultation with each client to discuss his or her goals for and needs from the project as well as to get a feel for personal tastes and style.

There are times when it is not possible for the initial consultation to take place face to face or via telephone. In these instances, to initiate and facilitate the project discussion, I will forward the Project Questionnaire to you with the expectation that you will answer the questions as fully as possible. Your answers to the questions will give me a clear understanding of what you want, what you need, how you work, and to address any questions you may have until we are able to schedule a live consultation.

After we have spoken and/or I have reviewed the questionnaire, I will provide you with a provisional quote for the project.  Within 48 hours of our initial consultation, I will provide you with written confirmation of our discussion to include a Statement of Work for your review and signature. The Statement of Work includes:

Detailed outline of the project

Detailed enumeration of the project Deliverables and the estimated completion times

Terms of the agreement

Once you review, sign, and return the Statement of Work to me, you will receive your Welcome Packet. Included in the Welcome Packet will be an invoice for 50% of the agreed upon project price which is due upon receipt of the invoice. The remaining 50% of the agreed upon project price will be due at pre-determined intervals.

If you have any questions you may always contact me via any method listed below. I will respond as soon as possible. I look forward to working with you.
