Hi! I am Prudence McDaniel, cellist, educator, and Coach for Performing and Visual Artists, and Educators.
For 40 years, I have been a professional performing cellist, private teacher, and during the last 20 years, also adjunct faculty at 4 colleges and universities.
During those 40 years, my hands-on business experience includes being the solopreneur, running a successful private teaching studio which has served over 900 cello students, and being co-founder and treasurer of my string quartet’s Chamber Music Institute and Community Music School, incorporating the quartet as an LLC and the Community Music School as a 501c3 tax designated non-profit.
4 years ago, after experiencing a major medical event that threw everything (including life itself) into question, I had the opportunity to reassess how I was manifesting my calling. What emerged was a new way to serve the artistic and educational community. Finally, after 40 years, I listened to the advice from friends and others that I had helped, and enhanced my life and career to include life, entrepreneurship, and financial coaching.
In the Coaching world, there are many different areas of specialty, and the popular wisdom is to go narrow and deep. This assumes that people need you to be focused on one problem. However, I realized that while some people only need help with one issue at a time, many need to work on several and require assistance in understanding how all the pieces fit.
They need synthesis.
Using the A.C.E. Method (Acknowledge, Create, Execute) I help you discover what undermines your success as an entrepreneur and provide the tools you need to overcome the blocks preventing you from living the artistic and creative life of service you want and deserve.
If you are -
- An experienced solopreneur or entrepreneur desiring to revitalize your career,
- Starting out in your private teaching career, or
- A college or university needing to provide entrepreneurial business creation workshops and seminars for your musicians, artists, dancers, writers, actors, etc.
Please contact me. Let's see if we're a good fit.
