Coaching and Consulting for your Photography Business
Beate uses her hard-won knowledge to help her clients in their business and personal lives. As an immigrant, and a single mother who started and ran several businesses, and sold one, Beate knows the demands of today’s world on Creative Entrepreneurs.
Beate understands more clearly than most people that reputations are based on what you’ve done, not what you want. She worked hard to get what she wanted, but she chose not to sacrifice her humanity, or her femininity, to get there. Beate is an accomplished entrepreneur who has done what most people only dream about doing: she built a business from the ground up and sold it for many times what was invested. But she’s also a caring and giving partner who wants her clients to succeed beyond their expectations.
Hear and read what Victoria Hulett-Gross from Venusstock has to say:
I cannot say enough positive things about working with Beate. I would make the same decision over and over to work with her given the option. It is worth every penny to do a package of hours with her, as you will see… she will help you to get a complete plan implemented. As you follow through, you’ll see the results. Not only have I had amazing and fortunate outcomes from working with her, but I also have witnessed many of her clients (all of who remain friends with her) succeed and monetize their assets. ~Victoria Hulett Gross

Endorsements & Testimonials
“Beate’s helped me turn a little business stress into a lot of useful action. She’s taken a holistic approach to helping me succeed in my business by helping me sort though the clutter and focus on the things that matter most. She’s honest, real, and straight up. She’s helped me define my base, and build a stronger presence and a broader network along the way. She’s helped me realise that my business is a product of my life and find balance while still increasing my efficiency and effectiveness! I believe she recognizes her own success is, in some way, tied to mine. I feel like she’s always working for me, like she never stops thinking of ways to help me improve. She’s always got ideas and connections that turn into rewards. She’s the goose that laid the golden egg!”

“Beate thinks outside the box in profoundly effective ways. She has helped me over and over since 2003. She is brilliant, savvy, wise…and a street fighter to the core. You will never, ever go wrong if she chooses you, and you choose her for a project that inspires you both. Call me if you would like to know more, directly, from one of her most awe-inspired, biggest fans.”
~Roger Ressmeyer, CEO of Science Faction
“Beate has helped propel my business to success. At a time when I was wondering “What in gods name and I doing in this business?” Beate helped me focus on what I needed to focus on. She helped me think outside the box and she help me be the success I am. Her knowledge and experience mixed with her enthusiasm are an unstoppable combination!”
I just want to thank you again for the phone consult. I have followed your recommendation to jettison the local commission business to focus on stock photo work. This couldn’t have come at a better time. September was an incredibly frustrating month for local business, and I ended up working very hard to produce bids for jobs and got absolutely nothing from it.
Meanwhile, my stock sales seem to be slowly coming back to life and shutting down all attempts to get local business has been quite liberating. Your assessment of my being “all over the place” with my business efforts was right on the money. I’m confident that the minor loss of a couple of thousand dollars of local commissions will be met in short time by rising stock sales. Thank you for helping me achieve some clarity!
