Frustration, uncertainty, and lack of confidence is not what you should be feeling when thinking about your business.
Perhaps you’re a newly certified coach and at the beginning stages of building your coaching/consulting practice but don’t know where to start?
Maybe you’re bringing years of corporate experience into your coaching/consulting business but don’t know the best way to showcase your diverse expertise into a succinct and compelling message?
Or, you’ve been in business for a while but you’re not generating the visibility you’d like, nor are you signing up as many clients as you’d like.
In fact: ’The world’s best kept secret’ – perfectly describes you.
Either way, you’re asking yourself: “How can I stand out and showcase my expertise to my dream client, when I’m in a crowded marketplace?”
It starts with The Distinction Model and getting clear on all of the elements of Your Distinction Blueprint, which is exactly what we focus on in Core Business Foundations.

“The Core Business Foundations Program gives you the confidence to know what you need to focus on and what level of ‘hustle’ you need to do. Previously in my business I was hustling 80% of my working hours. Marketing, putting out content. Everything else was 20%. Today, after going through the Core Business Foundations Program I am hustling 10% of the time and I’m spending 90% creating value and serving clients. I’m getting more bulk projects – not one or two short-term projects but six-month programs along with higher level clients, projects, and opportunities. So, no longer am I feeling depleted and exhausted trying to get clients.
I created 52 digital assets (thought leadership content pieces). I use them again and again and again. I don’t need to reinvent it – it’s just there. My Program Pathway which I created – I flashed the Program Pathway up (on one of my livestreams) and you wouldn’t believe it – I go so many calls saying: “Oh, what are you doing?”
The whole program, the technologies – you made everything very generously available. It’s beautifully laid out. A lot of care has been taken not only in sequencing but in loading the program. It starts with an inquiry – an assessment and audit of what you are doing right now and by the time we come to the core of the program, you’ve really peeked in terms of intensity of discovery and growth.
Knowing my Signature Brand Archetypes – I cannot tell you how many times I go back and look at that because not only does it give you the vocabulary, I see now that I prefer certain words and they are now part of my brand. The words I now use resonate with my ideal client – words just fit and knowing that I have been given that amazing tool.
Whenever I write copy, I just look at my archetype and I can see the top 10 nouns I need to use. Copywriting has become effortless and consistent. And, my introduction now flows. The Core Business Foundations Program should be part of Entrepreneur Tool Kits or MBA colleges because it is a complete training.“
Kashmira Mody – Transformation Coach, Learning Essence
“I needed clarity around my Signature Program and offerings. The information Annemarie shared was clear, interesting and inspiring and I’m excited about having far more clarity on how to build a Signature Program that’ll make an impact in my clients lives, while enable me to grow my business.
Another one of my ‘aha’s’ was when I took the Branding with Archetypes assessment and discovered I was an Alchemist, Ruler and Hero. Because I now have a greater understanding and clarity around WHO I am (through the lens of the Archetypes), will enable me to use this across all of my branding and communications.
The content Annemarie shares is valuable and inspiring and will help you get more visibility, showcase your expertise, while get your message out in a much more powerful way. I found Annemarie to be an inspirational teacher, who really wants people succeed! Thank you so much Annemarie for all you have shared!”

“After completing the program everything is clearer and with that clarity I am now able to portray and promote my business with confidence. AND, I increased my fees by 60%
I needed to clarify my brand in my own mind and also wanted to determine how I was being perceived by my existing clients and prospects. I also questioned whether I was explaining what my business did in an accurate way.
Since completing the program everything is clearer, and with that clarity I am now able to portray and promote my business with confidence, whereas before I questioned whether what I was saying was accurate. I’ve also found that the program has eliminated the writer’s block I was experiencing when trying to communicate my brand on paper.
I am speaking more confidently and with more clarity and now have words to use so that I can connect with and inspire my clients into taking action! I can’t speak highly enough of the program and the experience and would highly recommend it!”

“Thanks so much for your guidance during the ‘Core Business Foundations’ Challenge. I joined the Challenge to get some clarity around my core business’s message and begin developing a strategy to market it. Annemarie was a fabulous teacher and mentor throughout the process, offering lots of personal support and feedback along the way.
I loved learning more about how my own characteristics, strengths and weaknesses can be reflected in my brand, and discovering the most powerful words to sprinkle throughout my messaging to attract the right people to my business.
My greatest ‘aha’ was discovering my Signature System. I hadn’t realised that I do tend to work through various components in my client work and can package this up as a system to be offered at various levels.
I’m excited to continue developing this Signature System in my business, and to create a variety of service-based products that will make a huge impact in the lives of my clients, and ones they will really want to invest in!
The Core Business Foundations course got me thinking laterally about my business and helped me gain heaps of insight into my business. I will keep referring back to its workshops and lessons that I found super-useful and look forward to working more with Annemarie in the future!”

“Prior to working with Annemarie I had low self belief, I didn’t have any goals, and was bogged down due to lack of USP in a competitive industry.
Other areas in my business where I was struggling was I lacked the confidence in networking with other people and presenting information about our business. And, I was definitely not charging what I was worth.
After working with Annemarie, I am much more confident in business situations, I understand my niche better, and I have better structuring and direction in my marketing because I am far more focused.
I now have a direction in the business, have set myself goals for the next 3months, 6 months, 9 months, 1 year and 3 year. And, more importantly, I am now charging 40% more for my projects and clients are extremely happy to pay this.”
