I’m Cathy McIntosh—a corporate professional turned entrepreneur who’s learned a lot of things the long, hard way. Everything changed when I applied the same principles that I’ll help you master. Customer engagement went up, sales saw measurable increase, and I knew how to talk about my business to a much larger audience.


As a StoryBrand Certified Guide and a Business Made Simple Certified Coach, I’ve helped lots (and lots) of businesses just like yours propel forward—even amid the uncertainties of our current culture. I look forward to helping you, too.

What will we cover?

Group coaching begins the 2nd week of January 2021. In the first year, you’ll become proficient at:


Integrating a Memorable and Exciting Mission Statement


A mission statement and guiding principles will give you focus and direction in your life and work. You’ll gain confidence that the work you’re putting in is achieving your mission and making the world a better place.


Clear Messaging


People do not buy the best products and services. They buy those that are communicated the clearest. When your message is clear, your business will grow. And once you have your messaging in place, you’ll start to save time and make more money.


Marketing that Works


In this section, you’ll develop a sales funnel that takes the guesswork out of your marketing efforts and delivers a measurable return. It will build relationship with your customers and on-ramp you to your products and services. The sales funnel will consist of these 5 components:

  • A “one-liner” that will help you and your team share what you do without feeling salesy
  • Streamlining your website so it converts browsers to buyers
  • A Lead Generator that builds trust with potential customers and shows how you can solve the problem they experience
  • A nurture email sequence that will build relationship with your clients and help them stay connected to you brand so when they’re ready to make a purchase, they think of you.
  • A sales email sequence that guides your customer through the commitment phase of the relationship and prompts them to make a purchase. A well-executed sales campaign will grow your revenue and profit.


Communication that’s Engaging


When you follow a simple communication framework and repeat your talking points over and over, you’ll be understood, interesting, and inspire change. This module will impact your:

  • Team Communication
  • Presentations
  • Video Messaging
  • Social Media
  • Emails
  • Press Releases
  • Virtually all of your communication
