Do you have a business or tech project (or more than one) on your "to-do" list that's been keeping you stuck and holding you back?

Stopping you from moving forward, making progress, making an impact -- and making money?

Then you need PROJECT: FINISHED!

Give us 1 day, and we’ll get it DONE.

Because there is POWER IN FINISHING.

PROJECT: FINISHED! is for you if ...

  • You feel stuck in place or have been running around in circles related to a particular business project or projects
  • Your time is often spent doing things you don’t enjoy and don’t really want to learn how to do (like tech stuff!)
  • You want to get the dang thing done already! so that you can make an impact and an income from what you love to do
  • You want to be more productive and efficient, with a more streamlined approach to your business
  • You are looking for personalized support, help and some training to get you moving and on track


We like to keep things simple around here
  1. Schedule your PROJECT: FINISHED! date.
  2. Complete a brief questionnaire to tell us what you really want DONE already.
  3. Meet us on Zoom on your scheduled date.
  4. Receive your finished project(s) 24 hours later, plus how-to instructions to keep you going. Want to talk with us about everything? Absolutely! Another call is included.
  5. Take one week to review everything and meet with us again, if you’d like, to make sure all is just as you like it
  6. Accept our 100 percent completely blown-away guarantee. We won’t quit until you are a raving fan ready to shout our names to the heavens.


We are experts at finishing stuff -- while you're relaxing!

Those pesky projects that are standing between you and what you want to do with your business (and maybe even your life!)?

They don’t stand a chance with us.

Not only will we get your project(s) done, but we’ll include any training you need so that you’re never stranded again!

We’re both former journalists/teachers-turned-techie-and-business-people who  …

a) are accustomed to working on deadline

b) love making life easier for entrepreneurial people like you

c) are former teachers who know how to explain even tech stuff in plain English (because PROJECT: FINISHED! also includes training — yay!)

d) are extraordinarily productive go-getters who do things like write and self-publish lots of books (that would be Mary) and make major moves happen, like from the US to Paris, France (that would be Jeff)

Jeff did exactly what was promised: A functioning website for my photography business within a day. And it’s beautiful! I am not tech-savvy, so I was apprehensive about the training he provided to learn how to maintain my website on my own. But the instructions were simple and he was knowledgeable and very patient. I am very happy with the process and my beautiful website.

I could not be happier with the book trailer that Mary created for my book launch. She nailed the emotion by selecting the perfect music and timing it with the text and visuals to enhance the impact.  She picked the perfect visuals for two versions of the trailer to appeal to different audiences. She was quick, easy to deal with, and I only had to spend about 10 minutes reviewing one draft and providing feedback and then it was done! I can use this trailer at conferences, on my amazon author page, and in workshops and retreats. It also catches attention and comments in my Facebook marketing. This was the best investment I have made in a long time and I will not hesitate to use Mary’s services again!

You are whip-smart, responsive, fast, and incredibly kind and generous. When someone is in business/brand building mode, they tend to work with a lot of different ‘partners’ — designers, consultants, lawyers, coaches, copywriters, etc. — and I’d guess that most people like me have had their share of disappointments. But you were a total ‘wow,’ Mary. A bright, beautiful, super-talented light in what can sometimes be a dark fog.

So happy with the result. And such a pleasure to work with you throughout the process. More Mary’s in the world, please!!
