Start Small, Start Now
clients & confidence in 30 days
What if you could start getting clients for your business right now?
Stop toiling away in the bat cave for months & months (& months) on the endless, agonizing marketing…
And start actually doing the coaching or consulting work you began your own business to do?
Not next month, not next week, but right this damn minute?
Spoiler alert: you can.
Does this ring any bells for you?
You’ve invested so much time and money in entrepreneurial education that you’re horrifyingly halfway to a PhD in massive marketing machine building.
You’ve stockpiled so many courses and programs that you haven’t had time to even open them, let alone implement. But, hey, they might be useful one day, right?
And you’re currently head down, buried in your burrow, building the mythical “touchless” marketing funnel that they promise (pinky swear!) will bring you all the clients in the world!!!
Someday. Hopefully. Maybe.
Clear, simple genius. Start Small, Start Now feels like a new lease on life. Wendy made me remember that my business is actually helping people – not spending month after month trying to keep up with social media changes and the latest and greatest marketing strategies. My first thought, after learning her simple yet powerful strategy, was, “Why didn’t someone tell me I could do that? I WANT to do that!”
Here’s the straight poop:
They’ve told you that, to build your business, you absolutely, positively must:
Invest tons of time & money creating ginormous courses, programs & signature services.
And then, invest even more time & money creating a massive marketing machine in order to sell said ginormous courses, programs & signature services.
Guess what? They’re wrong (and deep down, I bet you know this too).
Because after 18 (or 36 or 48) months of their preposterous plan all you’ve got are sprawling creative writing projects and a mountain of bills.
But what you still don’t have? Clients.
And without clients, what you have there, chica, isn’t so much a business as a ridiculously expensive hobby.
Let’s fix that. Let’s fix that right now.
How would you like to…
Stop the marketing madness & start working with clients?
Stop investing in ALL the things that will theoretically pay off one day & start doing the ONE thing that will make you money so you can then invest in your business?
Stop waiting for someday & make your business happen NOW?

Doesn’t that sound like a perfect plan?
I launched my 2021 New Year’s Reading with Start Small, Start Now a week ago and have booked 12 people so far! My goal for that reading was 10, so YAY!!! It’s opened my eyes to what I like doing better, given me ideas to tweak my offers and how to widen my audience.
This is a time tested process my clients & I have returned to repeatedly for over six years.
My clients have used Start Small, Start Now to:
- Get clients for a new business or a new direction in an existing business.
- Craft signature services, courses, and programs.
- Create bridge services to high ticket programs, courses, and signature services.
this is how I started my own business in 2014.
And, a year later, I used this exact same process to create my business accelerator, Extraordinary Impact, first as a 1:1 signature service, and then as a live group coaching program focused on getting craveworthy clients with a unique, confident & compelling message.
In this focused, no-fluff, client-getting course, I walk you through exactly how to:
Create a simple, speedy starter offer that you can get out today, not someday.
Get clients immediately without wasting time or money on mindless marketing.
Acquire the skills, processes & real world data you need for brilliant biz dev.
Take the next steps to build an empire focused on craveworthy client-getting.
With Start Small, Start Now, you get:
- Immediately actionable lessons to create your starter offer and put it in front of your prospects right away.
- The step-by-step implementation workbook to craft all the essential elements.
- A forum to ask questions and troubleshoot issues for your unique business.
- Additional support to keep you going in the right direction, including: key mindset shifts, FAQ, and case studies.
This is perfect for youR service-based business if:
You’ve been building all the things for awhile but still don’t really have clients.
You’ve had client success and now want to take your business in a different direction with a new focus, niche, or offerings…but how?
You’re struggling to get enough clients for that ginormous course, program, or service you’ve created but just cannot seem to sell.
Bottom line: if you’re OVER waiting for it all to work out someday, somehow, you need to Start Small, Start Now!
WHOA! Hold the phone! Somebody pinch me!
Within seconds, I had 1 person say she was in, and within another 2 minutes another had contacted me. Within 24 hours, I had 10 confirmed appointments with an additional 6 people given spots but not yet scheduled. And, I had a waiting list of 20 (this keeps growing…) I was going to post to LinkedIn, too, but I might be all booked up!!
I love you Wendy! Thank you for this “push” – or rather permission – to Start Small, Start Now!!!!!
This has been a remarkable experience. I had no idea…Woot Woot!
Start Small, Start Now is the best investment I have ever made!
Within hours of sharing my offer, I had 2 clients scheduled. Within a week, I had started working with my very first client-which was amazing and validated that THIS is what I am supposed to do.
This method takes less effort and the only cost was the course itself. Thank you Wendy!
Start Small, Start Now is truly a breath of fresh air in the busy, overcrowded market that is online business coaching.
I wish I’d heard about Wendy sooner in my attempts to create a health coaching business. I’d bought into all the guru hype – I turned myself inside out trying to create the giant system that they recommended. I was getting further and further away from doing what I loved – coaching people to be healthier. I came close to giving up entirely.
This deceptively simple program was a life raft for me. I’m so excited to start coaching actual people again.
Got Qs? I’ve got you!
Here are the common concerns that keep coaches and consultants stagnant & stuck:
What if I am just starting out and don’t have a giant audience online?
You do not need that for this to work. The first time that many of my clients and I used this process was at the very start of our businesses. We used this before we had large email lists, FB groups, and tons of connections on all the platforms. This process is what allowed us to build our first audiences-by working with people.
But I have put out starter offers before (including free offers) and got crickets. How will this help?
My process, while simple, isn’t THAT simple. It’s not about putting out a cheap or free offer. It’s about putting out a starter offer in the right way so that it’s easy to say yes to. I teach you exactly how to do that. And that’s not all, I also show you how to run your offer and acquire the skills, processes & real world data you need for brilliant biz development of your empire.
How will this help me develop signature services as well as group programs and courses?
Maybe you’re working with 1:1 clients on an hourly basis and want to develop a signature service instead of dealing with ALL the things. Maybe you know you’d really rather work with groups in programs or courses than 1:1.
Here’s the straight poop: you cannot do ANY of that without an established process. And Start Small, Start Now is the quickest, easiest way to prove your methods and develop that repeatable process that you can trust. Once you have that, you can create a 1:1 signature service as well as group programs and courses.
But, I want to start selling giant programs ASAP.
I hear you. And this is the fastest way to get there. By developing everything you need to do that.
Your alternative? Is to invest a ton of time & money in creating a giant thing and then ANOTHER ton of time & money marketing to promote that thing. A thing that doesn’t yet work, in which you don’t have any confidence, for which you have no social proof, and no real client insights for either your messaging or your marketing.
The results: zero sales or, if you’re lucky enough to get sales, you’ll spend the whole time white knuckling it cause you don’t really know what you’re doing (and you can’t let them know).
This is a proven process my clients and I have used with great success for over six years. Trust it.
What about all the other things I need to create like a landing page, an email sequence, etc?
I know, after AGES of being told you need to build a massive marketing machine, your instinct is to do the same here. You’re going to want to create the ginormous Rube Goldberg machine of a social media post to a quiz to an email sequence to a challenge, and, someday, eventually, to your offer. Resist the temptation.
You don’t need to create ANY of that to do this-that is the point of Start Small, Start Now. That you need very little to get started. Yes, you CAN make this more complicated and add in other things later. But don’t make this harder on yourself now.
I tried putting out a starter offer before and I got clients, but they were terrible. How will this help?
You know that I am all about not just client-getting, but craveworthy client-getting. That’s why I teach you how to set yourself up for success from the first minute of your business. We set up procedures and boundaries that will form the foundation of your brilliant business so you can take the next steps and do the work you love while also making bank.
How will this help with my high ticket service/course/program that no one is buying?
Having problems getting cold prospects into your signature program, service or course? Stop trying to convince them to immediately say yes to something that requires a large investment of time or money. Start giving them something that it’s easy to say yes to.
This is your bridge offer to start building that know, like, and trust factor with them so they will buy your larger offer. Once you have helped them take the first few steps, they will know you can take them all the way.
Will this work for me?
This has worked for 100% of the people who have followed my simple, yet powerful process. It has not worked for the people who have read it over and thought, “that’s nice, but first I need to…procrastinate more. A LOT more.” You tell me: which is you?
NB: this process is proven successful for service based businesses. If you are pushing products as your primary jam, this is not for you.
Just starting out:
freed from marketing, she found courage and confidence doing the work she loved.
Karrie Stringer was a new coach spinning her wheels in the online marketing world.
Start Small, Start Now gave her the courage to actually leap into action. She put her offer out, got loads of responses immediately, and began working with five clients within the week.
“It’s amazing. I’m moving forward after being stalled! I’m getting a plan together and working on my business rather than pretending. I am now confident that I can actually help people. Plus, I have proved that I can make connections over the internet.”
she stopped planning for someday and started getting clients immediately.
Tasha Erickson was a pet professional wanting to work online with clients on dog behaviors and relationships. But, stuck perfecting her long game, she was theorizing about courses, audiences, and alliances.

She got her offer out in two days, took on clients, and within a week had created raving fans of her new online practice. Plus, she got the confidence and clarity to create a real, money making business.
Ready to focus:
she jumpstarted her practice even after other methods had failed her.
Kathya Bustamante had started her business before, but, taking time for family had derailed her. She wanted to kick off her eco-friendly strategy practice, but posting free and reduced price offers had gone nowhere.
Start Small, Start Now provided a step-by-step method to hit the ground running. More concise and easier than other methods she had tried, it produced immediate results.
Within days, she had twenty-two people interested which led to nine clients. She’s gotten clear on their needs and wants, so she can attract new clients easily. She’s moving full steam ahead and loving how it’s going.
Turn your ridiculously expensive hobby into a real money making business.
Stop the meaningless marketing madness.
Stop trying to start ginormous and launch NEVER.
