We just finished an awesome series of workshops in NY – the first with a BIG group at Albany CrossFit, the second a combined venture with CrossFit Virtuosity and NYC Endurance. It was a weekend full of active dialogue, smart questions, and sensational personal testimonials. Both Albany CF and Virtuosity are undertaking a Spring nutritional challenge, based on Whole30 principles, so we’ll be checking in on them regularly to see how things are going. We had a great time at both events, and are really excited to come back to the NY area later this fall for some follow-up.
Speaking of our workshops… sometimes, our best business-related ideas come from our readers. Last month, we received an email from Anne, currently in school in Texas. Anne wrote, “Are there are any other packages or services you offer that are in between the consultation and the workshop (like a two week consultation or a 30 min phone call you can add on to the price of a workshop)?”
I responded to Anne with our unfortunate regrets that we currently offered nothing like that… but then we got to thinking. It makes sense for us to have an in-between option, for those who participate in our workshops and want a little extra personal attention… but don’t really need our (admittedly rigorous) four week consulting package. See, we keep our workshop events pretty small in size, so we’ve got plenty of time for individual Q&A. However, there are always those with special circumstances – questions and issues that fall outside the parameters of even our “additional material”. Our audience includes single Moms shopping for families on a budget, business travelers trying to eat healthy on the road, and athletes looking for a nutrition edge on “game day”. While we’d love to be able to address all of these topics in detail during our four-hour event, we just can’t accommodate everyone’s special circumstances.
So, Whole9 is excited to announce a new consulting option fir those who attend our virtual or on-site workshops – a post-workshop private telephone consultation, addressing your particular special circumstances. We’ve priced it at a reduced rate ($50) compared to our normal consulting fee, but it’s available only within the first 10 days of your workshop event. We’ll get some information about your questions ahead of time, prepare our responses, and then schedule a time convenient for both of us to address your questions and any accompanying follow-up. Think of it as an additional half-hour of workshop, designed only around those topics of interest to you.
We’ll provide workshop attendees with more details in your workshop packets, including how to get in touch with us to request your consultation. (Unfortunately, unless you were at our most recent Albany or NYCE events, we aren’t going to be able to accommodate those who have already attended a workshop. Boooo, we know… we’re sorry, but we just don’t have the capacity to handle that many calls.) So don’t worry if we can’t address all of your special circumstances on workshop day – we’re happy to spend a little one-on-one time with you after the fact.
A big thank-you to Anne for the suggestion – if we see you at one of our workshops in the future, your 30 minute follow-up consult is on us. Got an idea for a product, service, blog post or web site upgrade? Since your ideas are often better than anything we’ve come up with, feel free to send ‘em to firstname.lastname@example.org.
