On Contract Only

Putting the pieces together to create symbiosis and flow

What is On Contract Only's Virtual As Needed Outsource Services?


Based on my extensive experience and knowledge of non-profits and small business, my services and products help you navigate successfully through the quagmire of situations which come to challenge you.

You are given simple, straightforward help to save you time, money and energy as well as give you the time and space to achieve far more than you could by "doing it all yourself" - and . . . you'll save your sanity too!

The two tools you need - a phone and a computer.  All transactions are performed virtually utilizing the phone and computer.

3 Ways I provide the assistance you need to assure that you accomplish more, network more, and have more fun:

Virtual As Needed Outsource Services - When you need a solid, reliable backup especially during crunch times, pile ups or crisis and to complete work without doing more staff hirings.  You may not have enough money to hire more people but, on contract , help can be affordable.  Even without a crisis, extra expert help provides relief from the pressure of getting it all done!  These services may include:  proofreading or content editing; writing; hiring; creating videos; researching; consulting or advising


Online Courses and Digital Products - I create these courses and digital products based on what people ask me such as: What is governance?  What is a business plan and why should I have one?  How do I create a budget everyone can understand and easily track?These products can be invaluable for on-going and repetitive training.


Career and Personal Development - Personal and career development go hand-in-hand with success on the job.  If your fears and insecurities are sabotaging your best efforts, you find yourself exhausted as though you were pushing a boulder uphill.  If you don't focus on your career or role in the business, you may not have one.  People working in non-profits and small business are often totally consumed with the "business" and the self becomes lost in the process.  Coaching/mentoring can really help to stay on target.



Why Contract?

Fresh eyes, ears and viewpoint -  Everyone has had the experience of listening to someone else's problem and thinking of a solution.  Why?  Because people involved in the problem are problem focused and have difficulty seeing the solution. 

Cost Effectiveness - The cost, in the long run, is less expensive than hiring someone on staff.  You contract only for the work you need done.

Unique Approach - Different knowledge and experiences present unique perspectives and approaches. 

Getting unstuck - The tendency of individuals and groups is to get stuck because the volume of work is overwhelming.  Yet, the work must be done.  Contracting  relieves the pressure.

Advice - Everyone needs to bounce things off on other people.  How do you find someone you can trust to provide you with advice confidentially and honestly  from someone who has the expertise and your best interests at heart?
