Frequently Asked Questions

Get all of your burning questions asked before taking the plunge into music career success!

Career coaching is for you if you answer "yes" to any of the following questions:
   • Have you found a career you love but aren't sure
      how to create more income?
   • Does your motivation to work on your career ebb
      and flow like a rollercoaster?
   • Are you stuck in a job you hate but don't want to
      lose the good pay or don't know how to leave it?
   • Do you see others in your field killing it, and are
      you left wondering how?
   • Are you not sure how to get the specific results
      you'd like?
   • Are you bored and want to take the next path in
      life and don't know what that is?

If yes, then this is for you!

One-on-one coaching is not therapy. While therapy is extremely beneficial for specific needs, coaching is results-driven, thus I am not interested in talking it out with you for years, rather, I want you to pop in, get what you came for, and sail on!

Coaching is also not about fixing you. (You are perfect AND there may be results and changes you would like to make to optimize your life/career/relationships. I'm here for that!)

Coaching is not someone yelling at you to make your bed. It's about getting out of your own way, discovering what you love and how to make a living doing it. It's about growth, sustainable fulfillment, and clarity.

In short: coaching about clarity on what you want and fast-tracking how to get it.

Hellzzzzzz yeah! I not only get to the bottom of what you're struggling with and transform it into gold, but I also add in a marketing element- as in, we will work on whatever element your project needs: your website, your projects, etc etc.

I know what it looks like to hit a plateau or a wall. And I know what's on the other side for you. Together, we break on through.

I also focus on habit-building around how you work at getting the results you want. As a coach, I am DEDICATED to normalizing your efficiency so that it feels easy. Also, I'm fun, I see you, and I am super-reasonably priced, so that's cool too.

But beyond all that good stuff, here's the real reason why working with me, specifically, is the bees knees: I am highly trained and highly effective. I have over 950 hours of coaching training, which is more hours of training that it takes to become a police officer. 

In addition to my *actual* training as a coach, which is a rarity inside the music industry, I am also a full-time musician and know, firsthand, what the struggles can be. This is a unique combination that makes for powerful sessions with you!

Ooooh yes. ALWAYS.

And it's probably the most effective thing I do for my career, nay, my life. During the time I first worked with a career coach, I got two massive placements, I started winning composing jobs, I put together the band of my dreams, and I met my husband. nbd. 

I am committed to my own growth, which is why there is so much room for my clients to continue to expand. We grow together.

Pick a package below that calls to you most, and make sure to stay on the web because you'll be directed to my fancy schmancy scheduling page where you can schedule your first call and fill out a powerful intake form. We take it from there. Let's get going! I can't wait to meet you!

You can always start with a single clarity call and then upgrade to a more expansive package.

"This feels very much like someone taught me to rub two sticks together and I am now standing somewhat incredulously in front of a roaring fire! Everyone should know how helpful Cheryl's work is."

Scott Hampton

"Your coaching was SO helpful!! You brought up some things that - I believe - most composers, musicians, songwriters and producers don't realize. You have a brilliant perspective of the whole 'thing'."

Paulo Galvao

"Coaching with Cheryl was a crucial step in some big shifts I’ve made over the past few years. She really helped me get into alignment and action in areas where I’d been stuck or floundering, and it made an enormous difference for me."

Deborah Hurwitz
Composer & Music Director (Jersey Boys, Broadway)

Absolutely!  If you want to chat before picking your perfect package (say that 5 times fast), email me and we can schedule a 10 minute call for me to answer all of your questions. To insure a timely response, please include the following pieces of information: Why are you interested in a career coach? Where can I find you on the web (website, twitter, etc etc)? What are you most proud of? How do you think I can help? What are you willing to invest to get the results you want? Do you have any questions for me? What are 3 SPECIFIC times (in Eastern Standard Time) that you could have the call?

Great question. I have over 950 hours of personal and professional development coaching training. I have coached over 400 people who have found clarity, increased income, their true paths, a team to support them, new fans, and other great results, and taught more than 500 other musicians in group programs. I have a double degree from Cornell University in Biology and Music (aka I can balance my time and focus, and I'm not a total idiot). I have spent over a decade in the music and advertising industry crafting my own unique career. I have spoken at dozens of universities and music conferences including SXSW about how to have a career you love, and I've been on TV talking about it. Oh, and I am a certified Email Marketing Specialist through Digital Marketer. So that's cool.

No! I do love working with musicians because of my own personal music career history and ability to understand what it takes to "make it" full time. That being said, my coaching training and approach applies to pretty much any person who is facing a road block in their life or career, or who has personal blocks in seeing themselves as the success they know they can be. And because I come from a place of listening, branding, and communicating your goals, I'm able to make a difference, no matter what your chosen career is.  I've coached professional speakers, mountain guides, actors, DJs, podcast hosts, yoga instructors, video editors, and high school students looking for what's next. If you're unsure if you're a fit, don't hesitate to email me and we can figure it out together.
