“Deciding what not to do is as important as deciding what to do.” - Steve Jobs

LOLU– Leap Out & Level Up

Original & non-conformist business development for creatives with no patience
for the label “starving artist.”

Imagine:

  • Knowing what to do next instead of fearing you will do it all wrong. 
  • Understanding selling is serving instead of believing selling is slimy.   
  • Streamlining your process, so you don’t feel pulled in one-hundred different directions. 
  • Progressing your business instead of procrastinating within it. 
  • Knowing you’re respected for you skillset instead of feeling like another disposable “creative.” 
  • Producing more instead of falling victim to inspiration-killing perfectionism. 
  • Leaping at your opportunities instead of telling yourself you aren’t ready. 
  • Being right in the middle of the game instead of standing outside of it. 
  • Having tons of excited buyers instead of just tons of Instagram followers (huge difference). 
  • Feeling well-connected instead of isolated in your entrepreneurial journey.  
  • Getting the right press so potential clients believe in you, not just your friends and grandmother. 

And that’s how LOLU™ works:

During our complimentary, one-hour interview, we take a comprehensive look at your brand, your product, your ideal client, your numbers, your price, your margins, your market, your marketing, your beliefs, your story, your plans to “launch,” and your money goals – just to name a few things.

This helps us determine EVERYTHING – where you are, where you want to go, and what the problems are that stand in your way.

Assuming we’re a fit, you’ll receive a proposal for one-on-one business development coaching tailored specifically to your business needs and goals, so you’re always taking smart, actionable steps to grow your brand.

Depending on your needs, your LOLU™ tailoring could include:

  • Pinpointing your EXACT strengths, so we can determine what should be outsourced as soon as possible – this frees you up to focus on what you love to do, which generates productivity and income.  
  • Thorough coaching through product development, profit planning, marketing, and launching, so you’re considering the tangible facts and reality checks that usually take businesses years to figure out. That way, you’re strong and viable right out of the gate 
  • To have a history, company values and a promise that inspire 
  • NLP and Time Line Therapy Master Practitioner techniques to let go of old issues that are currently holding you back and preventing you from moving forward.   
  • Access to my professional network (when appropriate), which includes contacts in luxury brands around the world, so we can target the right people who need to know you

JULIEN MADE THE EXPERIENCE FUN & ENGAGING FOR ALL KEY BUSINESS STAKEHOLDERS INVOLVED
“We wanted to refine our strategy on a new category for our business – Fine and High Jewellery - and gain an overall understanding of how to best represent multiple Jewellery brands in a live large-scale high-end event. Julien made the experience fun and very engaging for all key business stakeholders involved. His work ethic and professional approach towards all issues that have arisen during the project made it absolutely necessary to have him on board. It has been great to work with someone very knowledgeable, who is there with you on every stage of the process, ensuring the best is provided to both the company employees and clients."

YOU ARE A “RARE GEM” FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO GET STARTED.
“The way I present you when I talk about you to someone: that you accompany, help, support, advise, and listen to the person, carrying projects/brands on all the development phases of the project/brand. That you do not impose anything but that you ask the right questions that allow us to question ourselves and go further, especially in the right direction. That you are frank and direct which is very appreciable because you do not necessarily seek to please everyone but to express your truth, your values, your vision, and your opinion. And that you analyze very well the situation and you know very well where you want to take the people with whom you work but that you give them the time to realize by itself the path that they must take! I usually end up with the fact that you are a “Rare Gem” for anyone who wants to get started !!!”

EASY TO TALK ABOUT NEW IDEAS AND HARD TO EXECUTE THEM ALL THE WAY
“It is easy to talk about new ideas and hard to execute them all the way to the finish line - one person that excels in the second skill is Julien. I had the honour to do the altMBA together with Julien and got to experience first-hand his desire to learn, change, and level up for the better. The clarity of his thinking and ability to point to the parts of a project that matter the most impressed me over and over again. If these are skills that could take your project to the next level, I can highly recommend a chat with Julien and I’m sure you’ll get value out of it, even in just a few minutes.”
