How We Can Thrive Together
“I’ve let go of the feelings of inadequacy.
They still float around out there but I am no longer tethered to them. That means I can notice them, and still move forward.
The ArtMark approach has given that gift and a way of marketing that is genuine, reflects who I am and what I stand for. This is something I can embrace, rather than flinch away from. Through ArtMark, I have more deeply realized that I am my POP (Patch of the Planet). There are some things to watch out for in that and there are tremendous resources in that.”

“Working with Jeffrey’s calm, yet contagiously determined presence helped me develop the story behind my brand now and in the years ahead. From my original idea kernel, Jeffrey finessed the Thin Difference message and positioning with elegance and clarity. His questions, encouragement, challenges, and insights helped make the new Thin Difference pop – and land on a feature in Parade magazine. As a result, I’m a smarter writer and teller of a big Thin Difference story.”

“After many frustrating attempts on my own as a writer, Jeffrey Davis stepped in and helped me reorganize my project with kindness, humor, and rigor. The book proposal Jeffrey helped me write sold and I am about to publish my first book.”

THOUGHT LEADER CONSULTING
“I love that Jeffrey approaches the creative process with practicality and wonder both. His reach-for-the stars attitude and down-to-earth approach have helped me take concrete steps to launch my business without losing that sense of wonder he’s always talking about. The best endorsement yet? My husband said he’s never seen me so focused or directed towards accomplishing a professional goal.”

“Like a midwife, Jeffrey held the space for me to discover my authentic needs and desires for my next project, and offered solid strategic editorial and business assistance, breathing exercises when I thought I couldn’t do it, and all the time cheering me on to push my ‘baby’ out. You rock, Jeffrey!”

“To me, Jeffrey is a life coach, creative consultant, mentor, writer and editor. His additional unique assets, that the other coaches can’t offer, are strong business acumen and a solid understanding of traditional and social media. He addressed my creative yearning with a business sense. He asks insightful questions to drive productive discussion. I recently launched my own website venture and started writing a screenplay. I couldn’t have done either without Jeffrey’s help. Thank you, Jeffrey.”

“Jeffrey saw the kernel of a story gleaming in my memoir and helped me transform it into a compelling novel that better relays the themes and truths I wished to explore. I sold the novel for a six-figure advance, a first-time published author’s wildest dream come true. “Birthing” The Doula wouldn’t exist without his generosity and wisdom.”

“The first thing that I noticed and drew me to this program was the quality of the people that Jeffrey attracted. Sure, there were people like me who wanted help getting their work out there, but there were others who had already published. These people would form the pack that would help critique each other’s work. And once again, Jeffrey created a structure for the group that allowed us to support each other and work together respectfully. The same respectful approach that Jeffrey modeled in our group meetings carried over to our one-on-ones. Jeffrey demonstrated in every interaction an ability to hear what I needed from him and to provide it.”

“Jeffrey’s coaching was outstanding and achieved what I had struggles with for years. It was the best educational and discovery experience I have had since college and I am sure you will experience the same transformative success. This transition has led to a significant increase in my client work in the areas where I want to work. I am not chasing billable hours anymore. I am expressing a point of view in a platform that attracts commercial support. The return on investment here is off the charts. You just can’t beat earning money doing what you love.”
ANDY RAY is a business consultant and author of Radical Impact.
“Although I have an Ivy League MFA and have been a serious writer for years, my work with Jeffrey has challenged me to write better and beyond what I understood as possible. Our work together pushed me so far that I found the barrier that was blocking me. His meeting me at the crossroads as a fellow traveler has helped me clarify my memoir’s key purpose, central theme, and organic structure. I now have a solid manuscript that is near agent-ready.”

“Jeffrey is a truly gifted writing coach and editor. From conceptualization to final editing, Jeffrey has been an invaluable asset of every stage of writing. He has basically turned around every disastrous piece of writing I’ve ever given him. I’d take a bullet for Jeffrey Davis.”
