Are you struggling to find a study method to fit your own unique needs? Maybe you have a goal but you’re not sure how to reach it, or you need help generating a client list or creating the freelance schedule of your dreams. Topics for consultation include business planning, freelance entrepreneurship and individualized study plans. You may attend privately or bring a colleague/study partner.

If you are hoping for input on improving your interpreting skills, Athena will listen to you interpret and give you specific feedback during a “skill whispering” session. (The phrase was coined by Virginia Valencia of Interpretrain; it refers to Athena’s talent for listening for your strengths and weaknesses, pinpointing precisely where your energy should be targeted and how to overcome your challenges.) You will then be provided resource recommendations to address particular trouble spots.

One-on-one sessions are valuable and in limited supply. The idea is to pinpoint your goals and set up a plan to achieve them. These sessions are not meant to be weekly affairs, but rather an occasional boost to help you on your path to success.

“Athena helped us restructure our website, dramatically improving customer service response time.” -Brad W.
