Joel helps small business owners build their businesses using the trust that comes from communication that's more human. He says:
"I like to consider myself more a mentor than a coach. I think about the title I chose for myself as co-founder of the Northern California Artistic Achievement Awards, The Grassies'—Anamchara Eolais. It means one who guides others through what could be a complicated process, but is instead a simple path to useful knowledge. It comes from the ancient Gaelic word for the older priest who mentored the younger in. not only his duties, but his thinking. It's combined with a word that means more than just information, but information which has value.
"Making decisions can be incredibly challenging in the vacuum most small business/solopreneurs find themselves. And for every idea that sees the light of day, hundreds languish for lack of a clear plan for implementation.
"Knowing that someone else is genuinely interested in your success creates a personal sense of accountability. That's the accountability I'll create: not of you to me, but of you to yourself.
"I'd love to give you some free advice. Just email a question, or a description of the issue you're facing, and I'll offer some ready-to-use suggestions and the reasons behind them. All I ask is your permission to re-print the essence of the Q&A."
