Next group starts May 2019. Reserve your spot now!
I totally get it!
I worked behind the scenes at design firms and agencies for over 25 years, and I know a profound secret that not many people know…at the end of the day, design firms and agencies are even more challenged than other businesses when it comes to positioning, differentiating, attracting ideal long-term clients and closing sales.
You're about to get excited about the future...
The Business Development Breakthrough will take you through the process of...
It’s a 12-month program. The first 6 months you’ll focus on getting clear on differentiation and marketing. In my experience, differentiation needs to be much more than how you speak about your business. I'm going to share 3 possible ways to differentiate and you'll create your business model around one of them. We'll delve into your ideal clients and creating personas for them and then we’ll focus on marketing and create a plan that you can actually manage along with 6 months of content.
The second half of the year will focus on business development. You'll create your list of companies and contacts that match your new value proposition and your approach strategy. You'll learn how to handle client meetings so you don’t waste time and have a better chance of winning the work and a new way to do proposals so they aren’t so arduous. You'll also learn how to stay connected to clients after a project ends and how to get more work from the clients you already have (which lowers your cost of sale).
At the end of the 12-months, you’ll be doing everything differently, having more fun in your business, making more money and have more of the type of clients you want. The beauty of doing this in a group setting is that you’ll get ideas from me and others in the group and hear about what they are experiencing. You'll feel well supported. I’m going to share all my business development tools, templates, and worksheets: The first meeting success formula, Proposal template, Budget calculator, Client check-in formula and more.
Just wanted to say how grateful I am for the work you do Rhonda and the wisdom you’ve shared with me. After going through the Business Development Breakthrough, I grew my business 500% in a year. Thank you again!!Katie Osborn Via Collective
I've completely changed the direction of my business as a result of working with Rhonda. I'm creating an online course for commercial photographers and becoming a coach and I'm so excited about it. I would never have gone in this direction if it weren't for the program.Andrea Lange Lange Learning
I've been truly inspired, thanks to Rhonda. Not only have I grown my business and increased the volume of work, since I joined her program but my business gets more and more exciting all the time. She's a true entrepreneur and I'm opening to new ideas and exciting new ventures. Rhonda has been helping me establish new systems and info-structures to achieve my goals. We're even collaborating on some new ideas that will support both of our businesses. She opened my eyes for ways to enjoy the process of building my business.Limor Morgenstern LMD Branding

Ten years of refining and testing
This 6 module system has taken me over 10 years and hundreds of hours to create, distill, refine, test and package for you in an easy to follow format that creates results. This includes your downloadable audios, worksheets, done for you swipe files, scripts, and templates. I’ve spent hours developing scripts, templates, and workbooks to support you in transforming your business.
Here's a sneak peak at our online library
There’s nothing like sitting in a coffee shop with your laptop, sipping java, eating pastries and learning how to get ranked on google without spending any money, or filling in a worksheet that helps you get clarity on your target audience.
For a low monthly fee and no long-term commitment required, you get access to all of our well-designed modules and handouts in the Kickstart subscription. Each video teaches a different business skill like how to package your services, how to write a proposal, the right questions to ask a prospect, how to get referrals, and how to uncover your value proposition. And the best part...it's totally designed for creative people. We get how you think and what you need.

You’ll get to know the people in the group and me and feel motivated and supported by everyone. I'll make sure you meet other people where you live and get the right connections. You'll get a lot of work done in each session but there will be some work to do in between. Your progress will be up to you.
Private Coaching as an add on
If you want fast clarity and momentum, add private coaching and we'll work together once a month to help you get things done. This is where you’ll get real momentum. We’ll work through the program step-by-step. You'll have support, accountability and a sounding board. let's set up a time to talk about it.
