Hello and thanks for stopping by to meet me!
I’m Mary Strachan.
People come to me because they need help to solve a problem or want me to figure stuff out for them (like why their marketing isn’t working, or how to organize themselves so they have time to run a business and have a life.)
If you haven’t guessed, I like birds and flowers. I appreciate simplicity and beauty (and simple beauty.) I also love planning parties and interviewing people.
I decided the easiest way to tell you about myself was to sit down and ask myself a few questions. My answers are below!
What do you do?
I show people how to be themselves in their business so everything feels more natural. I help them get organized on the back end of things, which means they can stop working so darn hard. I make things easier for them so they have less headaches and hiccups to deal with every day!
I’m a Certified Ambassador for the Alignment Grid™ and I use it a lot in my work with clients.
Why do you do it? Do you love it or do you have a knack for it?
I do it because I love it and I have a knack for it. I used to down play my skills but now I embrace them. I combine my logical thinking with my intuition and ability to read energy. It seems to work out really well for people.
Who are your clients? What kind of people would need or want what you have to offer?
My clients tend to be solopreneurs who are doing everything themselves. They’re committed to building a prosperous business, and they don’t want to have to compromise their ethics, values, health, and personal lives to do it. They love to help others but it’s more than a hobby for them. They tend to be highly creative and struggle to put their own structure in place. Or, they aren’t feeling so great about what’s going on in their business right now and want to understand what to do differently.
Why should I buy from you instead of someone else?
My goal in working with you is to figure out what will work for YOU. Not me. Not Becky or Suzie or Tammy. YOU. I’ll be the one giving you permission to do it your way. And I’ll figure out what that means in practical terms too. People say my calmness helps them feel like everything’s going to be okay. I think that’s a big part of what draws people to me.
What’s next for you? Any big plans in the works?
On the personal side of things, my kids are getting older now, so it’s time for me to re-discover who I am as a person (as opposed to a mom) and what I want for me. It’s exciting and a little scary too!
On the business front, I’m exploring what it will take to bring the Alignment Grid to Canada.
