My clients are...
Half of my clients are starting a new business, wanting help with the whole process.
2. Or Growing
The other half need help to grow an existing business, especially with online marketing.
They're usually offering some kind of service that aims to help others improve their lives.
They often have plans to teach others - through a book, online course, or even just a blog.
With dozens of things to do and tough decisions to make every single day.
Staying busy, but not with the important stuff, so things are moving more slowly than they'd like.
7. Website Novices
Often needing advice on websites, email lists, social media, payment processing, etc.
8. Business Newbies
Not experienced with certain aspects of business, like marketing, selling or daily operations.
Some recent clients...
“I am consistently impressed with your ability to provide value. The profit increase for practitioners was $40,000 in 2016. Our website is seeing a DOUBLING of traffic and our new newsletter strategy has been hugely successful with a 6-fold increase in click-rates.”
“Phil has been instrumental in a major revision of our web presence as we moved to an integrated implementation of Joomla, Virtuemart and Moodle. He works efficiently, intelligently and independently. We are happy to recommend Phil and his work.”
Michael and Heide Hermary, Founders
"I highly recommend talking to Phil if you need a Boss Of Your Business. A few short calls with him and I had a clear, do-able plan to get some stuff done before the end of 2016. AND BONUS he helped me build this lovely new site that feels like it fits me and my biz perfectly."

I've been helping small businesses since 2005 while also starting and running several of my own. I’ve sold a couple of them and continue to run a couple of them. Here are the main ones:
In early 2017, I was wishing there was a way I could speak to a naturopathic doctor on a regular basis without having to pay $150-$200 each time. I noticed that technology was finally helping healthcare come online in a secure way that made it much more affordable and convenient for people, but nobody was doing it with natural healthcare, so I built it.
This is where I run a 12 month online organic gardening course as well as selling organic fertilizers to gardeners and farmers in the U.S. I worked hard on it for the first 3 years, and now it pays my bills with about 5 hours of work on average per week, plus I'm helping people around the world and there is no better feeling.
I built and sold this business, and continue to maintain the website as well as consulting on marketing. The site sells organic fertilizers. The new owner said, "What I especially like about the new website, besides the solid information, is the nice calm tone, and how your respectful but 100% dedicated attitude is shining through."
I co-founded this business with my ex-wife Heather. She’s a holistic nutritionist who offers cooking classes, meal plans and consultations. Similarly to 'Smiling Gardener', she now generates passive income from the site while helping others improve their health. She's amazing. If you're on a plant-based diet and need help with food, check her out.
How To Start...
One thing that's different about working with me is I don't do appointments.
Instead, whenever you need to chat, send me a text at 416-858-3480 or an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'm usually available to chat within a few hours, if not right away.
My clients appreciate being able to get me whenever they want rather than having to book days/weeks in advance, and it works great for me.
We can communicate using any combination of phone, Skype, Zoom, Hangouts, and/or email.
1. Pay Per Minute
- $2/minute for 240 minutes of time. We can have 5 minute chats, 2 hour chats, and anything in between.
- Note: There is no expiration on these minutes. You can use them in 1 day, over 6 months, you name it.
2. Pay Per Month
- $480/month for unlimited support. Some people want me every couple of days, some once or twice a week.
- Note: this isn't a subscription - it's just for 1 month. For subsequent months, you can come back here to pay.
I'll email you as soon as I see this payment come through and then we can get started.
