MEETINGS, EXPECTATIONS & INITIAL CONSULTATION FAQ

Thank you for connecting with Loving Cooperative. Our first meeting will normally be about 2 hours long but the initial consultation has sometimes gone as long as 4 hours. There is so much to talk about. Below is the tools that you will need for our meeting:

1. Meeting Software:

We use a software called Team Viewer for all of our meetings. This allows us to collaborate more efficiently. We even use it when we are in the same room as a client. You may download the recent version of Team Viewer from their website. Teamviewer works great on both PC and Mac, but Loving Cooperative does prefer PC.

When Installing:

  • Choose Basic Installation
  • Personal Use (Loving Cooperative has already paid the $1500/year for the corporate license to connect to our clients)

Download Team Viewer

Your Resistance is your destiny, LOVE & embrace it!

2. What to expect?

Expect the unexpected or simply release all expectations. Expectations only hold us back. Loving Cooperative doesn’t do anything in a traditional manner. We do recommend all of our clients to leave their ego elements (including fear) at the door, this allows us to progress much more efficiently. We have to warn you that this process is not necessarily going to be comfortable. Nothing in the universe grows in a place of comfort. If the goal is to grow personally and/or professionally, then letting go of comfort is going to be required.

3. Ongoing Meetings and Scheduling

After the first meeting we schedule the next meeting. For some clients we meet weekly and others it is every other week or less often. We do our best to work with the schedules of our Loving Cooperative partners. Most meetings are scheduled between 10am-6pm pst but on occassion we do offer earlier or later meetings, such as when we are supporting single moms who work full time.

ALL MEETINGS ARE NORMALLY SCHEDULED FOR PST(Pacific Time Zone)

Please remember to leave your ego at the door. 

4. Who Calls Who & Meeting Length?

Please call us on the phone when you are ready for our meeting. The reason for this arrangement is that we work with the clients before you call and do not end until the next client calls. This gives us the opportunity to go a bit further with each client when time allows. 

Most meetings are 2 hours long but depending on the client some will go beyond that and sometimes we set 1 hour meetings. The shorter meetings often happen after working together for a while and we are just touching base to make sure everything in the company is flowing smoothly.

5. Thank you!

Thank you for allowing us to support your organization 🙂 We do understand how scary it can be to hand your project/company over to another ones hands but we promise to always do our very best and help you thrive. We have watched clients move from an uncomfortable space to a free flowing one and that is when we really get to have fun because the limitations are gone 🙂 Nothing of value happens in the universe while in a comfortable space.

This is going to be a LOT of fun! 🙂

Don’t Control, Just Flow.

The Happiness Hypothesis

Many of my original ideas on how money does not promote happiness and the more you have has a direct correlation to how unhappy you become in life, started with this book. If you are ready to let go of attachments, this book may help. It took me many years to put the knowledge gained from this book into practice but you can thank this book for helping me create Loving Co-Op.
