3.1 Right Brain Business Plan: RightBrainBizPlan by Jennifer Lee – so much fun!

3.2 The Visual Web:
Headshots: Google: ‘headshot photographers’ or ‘portrait photographers’ check their portfolio to make sure you like their style.
Photographs: Getty Images, iStockPhoto or find a local photography course to improve your own shots.
Branding: Google: ‘branding designers’ or ‘branding consultants’ or when you see branding you like, ask who designed it
Branding example: Fiona Harrold not necessarily that exciting (sorry Fiona) but then it’s not meant to be – it’s reassuring, clear and consistent, reflecting perfectly the image the coaching company wants its clients to ‘get’.

Also, consider helping those who are just starting out in their field – commission a fresh-out-of-college Flash animator, or website designer, photographer, filmmaker, or graphic wizz to help you create your materials. They’ll appreciate the opportunity and it may be the start of a great alliance…

Slideshow example: Slideshare
Video To Camera example: Wendi Friesen Wendy is a great presenter and shows how powerful a single-shot piece to camera can be.
Flash Animation example: The Great Work Movie – inspiring – watch it!!
