Why consult with Chris Do?
If you’re looking to jump head past the trials and tribulations of running a creative practice or have a business problem that you need solution for, then a consultation from Chris Do is what you need.
A letter from Chris Do:
I’m making myself available so that you can get one on one coaching. Overcome the mental blocks that are holding you back from achieving your true potential. Start earning the money you are worth not the money clients are willing to pay you. If you’re thinking to yourself, what does he know that I don’t? The answer is nothing. You shouldn’t purchase this session. Do it your way. Make the mistakes that I made. Lose that big opportunity. Oversell to clients that aren’t buying. When you don’t get the results you were hoping for and find yourself running in place, and going nowhere fast, it might be time to consider a different approach. Talk to me. Let me help.
I’ve been running a successful design business for over 22 years (with a combined gross billings of over $60 million), and have since launched a second business that has been growing over 300% in revenue year over year. The advice I share, comes from real, practical experience. That, combined with being coached for over 10 years myself, gives me a unique perspective, not only into the mind of a creative entrepreneur, but also what it takes to pivot, overcome objections and succeed in one of the most competitive markets in the world—Los Angeles.
