The Heart of It Matters and I Can Help You Create a Life and Business You Love as Your Creative Business Coach
Hi, I’m Maggie. I’m an entrepreneur and writer who transitioned from a 9-to-5 job to a cookbook author and pop-up market maker for 25,000+ guests. I’ve also made a life-changing wellness shift that’s turned into real wellness for life. I’d like to spark a sustained and meaningful change in your life, too.
Together, we’ll discover the experiences you want to nurture in your life through a vision boarding session or carve a path toward achieving them, together, with me as your creative business coach. I can help you conceptualize your business, believe in it (and you), and organize your life to achieve your dreams.
I can be your Cheerleader, providing unending support, optimism, and motivation; Advisor, offering a gut-check when you need it most; Guide, sharing my real life experience through the unknown; Teacher, helping you break down the big projects into achievable pieces; and, Confidant, sharing inspiration to get you through your day. Most importantly, I’ll be your form of accountability to keep you moving ahead.
Depending on the plan, we’ll do life-changing work together. We may create any of the following: Vision Board: inspiration to kick-start your work and life; Empire Chart: a map of the experiences you desire; Personal Biography: words to represent you today and in the future; Prioritized Roadmap: to figure out which initiatives to tackle when; Knowledge Inventory: of what you know and what you need to learn; Financial Plan: a doc to track your make-money moments; Goals & Objectives: to guide our work together and your future; and more, as needed.

“Maggie is a gentle guide that helps you organize your goals into visuals with short descriptions. I love that she works with you on creating a Pinterest vision board because it’s so easy to refer to on a daily basis to keep me on track. I also like that I can keep tweaking my goals and adding images after the sessions are over. For my business, Maggie’s helped me look at what really makes money and focus in on that instead of spreading myself so thin. The financial spreadsheet she helped me make has completely changed the way I look at and make decisions.”–Kathy H., author of eight cookbooks, recipe developer, and cooking teacher in Durham, North Carolina
“Working with Maggie as my coach was exactly what I needed to refine my vision, recognize my true skill set, and understand myself better. She asked tough questions in a compassionate way–questions that I never would have reflected on before and that absolutely pushed me forward to pursue my passion. She empowered me to dream big and inspired new confidence in the projects I am working on. In two hours, I learned so much about myself and what a successful business looks like. My vision is so much more vibrant and clear now thanks to Maggie!”–Amy L., caterer, recipe developer, and creator of kitchen goods collection in Somerville, Massachusetts
“Maggie is a gem to work with! She’s an astute, compassionate listener, yet just when you think she’s given her all, she asks hard, thought-provoking questions. As a result, I have learned to streamline my daily workflow and I’m a more focused and productive writer and creator.”–Maureen B., cookbook author, motivational speaker, and seafood expert in Louisville, Kentucky
“A dream out of focus is just a blur of pretty ideas. This is what I realized after working with Maggie on my vision board. I had a smorgasbord of things I liked, but I had no concept of how to piece it all together into something attainable. Maggie took all of my pinned pictures and helped me to create an outline of what each one meant in the overall scheme of achieving my full potential. We also went deeper than just career and worked on other areas I hadn’t fully realized were even part of my aspirations. Thanks to Maggie, I now have a clearer vision of my goals.”–Kate K., recipe developer, photographer, and writer in Portland, Oregon
“Maggie is a natural leader. She is brilliant, kind, and supportive. Maggie’s guided me through this journey with specific details, help with plans and prioritization, and encouraged me to believe in myself and keep going even in moments when I feel overwhelmed. She’s taught me to break the project down into smaller and more manageable tasks, has provided information and resources that I would never have found on my own, and has helped me set goals to hold myself accountable. I highly recommend Maggie to anyone who wants to start and complete any project, while also having fun and feeling accomplished on the journey.”–Helen K., registered dietician and author of award-winning cookbooks in New York, New York
“I reached out to Maggie to help bring direction and clarity to my creative goals. The strength of her support and the value of her insight exceeded my expectations. Maggie is an empathetic listener, and offered actionable observations and suggestions. She spreads things apart into easy steps based on what she hears and carefully filters past fear, doubt and hesitation. I wanted objective support on the path I’m pursuing and Maggie helped me focus in tangible ways. She guided me to make artistic accountability a priority by having me make a vision board with specific prompts, a new website, a reasonable schedule, short and long term goals and weekly assignments. We worked together to hone an artist statement and while it is all a work in process- her support made it possible to confidently head in one direction. I look forward to working with her again in the future.”–Kimberly S., artist in Boston, Massachusetts
