Who Am I?
To quickly recap from the Home page, my name is Danielle Keister (pronounced Kī-ster, not KEE-ster, but please call me Danielle) I've been in the administrative support business since 1997, when I officially took out my business license after doing this work on the side for many years.
My expertise comes from an administrative background spanning 30+ years, nearly 20 of those running my own administrative practice where I specialize in supporting solo and boutique lawyers in intellectual property and business/entertainment law.
Since 2004, it's also been my privilege and honor to be a highly-regarded business expert and mentor in our industry. Besides my business savvy and straight-talking, no-nonsense style, I believe people are attracted to the authenticity and integrity of my expertise. I teach people as someone who still actively owns and operates a successful practice.
A couple points I feel are important to share with you
- I don't sell ebooks. What I offer here is sophisticated business and marketing training and education... the kind of training that teaches you how to command fees that equate to $75-100+ an hour... the kind of training and education that show you how you can work a 20-hour week making $5000+ a month... the kind of training and education that show you how to get exactly the kind of clients you want and nearly every single one to say "yes" to working with you. Instead of spending months or years in a classroom, what I've done for you is package up all my own education, expertise and years of experience running a successful practice and distilled it down into a simple, easy-to-understand, self-paced components-based program of business start-up and improvement.
- My products are not "cheap" because you aren't buying junk. I don't do junk. This is industry-leading training and information second to none. My heart and soul—not to mention 20+ years experience and expertise—go into each and every product. I pride myself on them being the most comprehensive and substantive products in the industry that truly help people create joyful, freedom-filled, financially successful businesses. There's a lot of garbage out there (quite often from people who are new themselves and not qualified to be educating anyone), which is why you pay peanuts for it. You get what you pay for. My products on the other hand are actually vastly underpriced. I simplify complex business concepts into easy-to-grasp learning that you can implement immediately in your business. You would literally pay thousands of dollars anywhere else, in any other platform, for the high level of quality, thoroughness, and actionable information and learning you get from my products. In that respect, they're a bargain and absolutely the best value for your money.
"What should I start with?"
This is a question I'm asked fairly often. Without knowing what stage you're at in your particular business journey, it's difficult for me to say. You're really the best person to determine that.
Here's the thing... each and every product plays a specific, vital role in the business set-up as a whole. That's because your business is a whole, living organism. What you do in one area of your business involves and affects every other part. It's why your interests will be served best by getting my complete system (The Whole Shebang, Set-03) instead of bits and pieces of it.
The Whole Shebang (Set-03) is also your best value because you get ALL the products at a steeply reduced price PLUS several free bonus products that can't be purchased individually or with any other sets.
If you are unable to purchase Set-03, the other option is to purchase individual items spread out over the course of time as you are able. The drawback to that, however, is that you don't get any of the bonus items that only come with Set-03.
If you need to purchase products individually over the course of time, what I can tell you that might help give you some direction is that the products are divided into two categories:
- SET-01: Practical forms, tools and contract templates to set up your business and get running quickly and easily, some of which can be purchased individually; and
- Individual business training guides to learn the critical skills you need to price and package your support, market, consult with clients and manage your practice smoothly and profitably.
Why buy our contract templates?
Those freebies and generic templates you find on the Internet at other organizations or office supply stores are FULL of legal holes that can (and will) cost you dearly. All my contract templates are top quality, having been tightly crafted and honed over nearly 20 years of business success and reviewed by my own business attorneys.
Each comes with helpful document instructions and useful explanations to help you better understand legal terminology and be a more successful businessperson.
Plus, you’ll save hundreds of dollars by having your attorney review them instead of drafting them from scratch.
What you pay for my products is a small investment in yourself and your business success that will pay for itself a thousand times over!
Consider all the time and money it costs you to start a business. A lawyer would charge you more to draft a single contract than what you'd pay for my entire program of products offered here.
And think of all time and headache involved in trying to create everything yourself from scratch. With my products, all the hard work, research and guesswork has been taken out of the equation, and it'll take you only a fraction of the time to get your business up and running.
Get started today and speed up your path to success–quickly, easily and confidently!
These products are the absolute best in the industry, the result of nearly 20 years of tried and true success and profitable business operation. You won’t find their caliber anywhere else in our industry.
They’ll save you a TON of wasted time, money, energy and unnecessary pitfalls in setting up and improving upon your strong business foundation. Not only are they a tax-deductible business expense you can claim on your next return, they’re one of the best investments in your business success you will make.
What to Do Next
Scroll down to view the product descriptions and sets available. Some products can be purchased individually; however, the sets will truly give you the best bang for your buck. You'll save a great deal of money and get products and bonuses that aren't available for individual purchase. Sign up to my blog and receive a special discount code good toward your first purchase.
Do You Need Private/Personal Help?
The products and guides offered here are self-study (do-it-yourself). If you need my personal help and support, you can book me for a private one-on-one consulting session here.
NEW! Build a Website that WORKS! 1-2-3 Plug-n-Play System for Building Your Website and Crafting Your Unique, Irresistible, Education-Based Marketing Message that Attracts Well-Paying Clients Who Can't Wait to Work with You (GDE-40)
NOTE: Build a Website that Works (GDE-40) is the all new, improved and expanded guide that replaces Articulating Your Value (GDE-38)
If you're like 98% percent of the people in our industry, you have a tough time getting clients (much less well-paying ones), am I right?
I'm hear to tell you a HUGE part of the problem is your website. Here's where most people go wrong: They try to make their website do too many things, wear too many hats, and offer anything and everything in the hopes that something will appeal to someone. And that's EXACTLY why they have so many problems getting ideal, retained client (or clients at all) and making money.
The Problems You Want to Solve
Think about the problems you have as a business owners in the administrative support industry:
What You Want
The good news is that every single one of these problems and desires can be solved and manifested in your business with an overhaul to your website and marketing message.
With this guide, you get a 3-part process in changing that story in your business:
Not only am I going to show you EXACTLY how to put your website together using my own proven conversion system, I will also teach you how to articulate your value and walk you through step-by-step in creating your own unique, irresistible marketing message so you can get well-paying, retained clients. And throughout all this, you'll get the bonus of a crash-course in marketing, business modeling and more clearly identifying your offers and how to position them on your website for best results.
What is a conversion system, you ask?
A conversion system is a strategy—a method—for walking site visitors through your information so that you capture more leads and convert more of them into actual, paying clients by leading them through an intentional education process.
A conversion system is made up of many moving parts and this guide walks you through all of them: your target market, marketing message, the proper site pages to have and what order they need to be in, what information to present (and what NOT to present) and the way to present it for best results, the various elements to have that dramatically increase trust, rapport and credibility (just to name a few).
A proper conversion system also works to set proper business expectations and prequalifies prospects so that not only do you get more of them, you get more high-quality, ideal client candidates.
If you're tired of wasting months (even years) trying to design your site, not knowing what to say or how to say it, this guide is for YOU!
Following my unique, step-by-step approach, this guide will walk you through and help you accomplish these things:

Breaking the Ice
Complete, Step-by-Step System for Confidently Leading the Consultation Conversation and Converting Prospects into Well-Paying Monthly Clients Who Can't Wait to Work with You (GDE-03)
Monthly retained clients are the holy grail for Administrative Consultants. Why? Because it’s where the bigger money is. With retained clients, there’s less marketing, less administration and more consistent cash flow and regular income. Done right, your business and work become easier to manage, which means you then have more freedom to enjoy the fruits of your labor. You then have more choice in your business, and any project work you take on beyond that is gravy.
That said, getting retained clients requires a deeper initial conversation with potential clients. This system, which I developed in my successful practice, walks you step-by-step through the entire process and shows you how to masterfully lead consultation conversations that turn your prospects into retained clients.
And by the way, YES, this guide is ALL ABOUT doing consultations by phone (or video chat, if you prefer). The process itself can apply to any consultation, in-person or otherwise, but doing in-person consults is far more time-consuming and doing things the hard way. There is no reason on earth you need to spend in-person time in consultation with your prospects. This guide will show you exactly how to do that.

Power Productivity & Biz Management
The 14 Simple Systems that Will Breathe Freedom, Flexibility and LIFE Back into Your Business and Client Relationships (GDE-41)
Learn how to transform your operations to create a 3-day work week so you can start enjoying life again and have a happier, more well-earning business that also serves clients better than ever before!
This guide gives you my unique, effortless systems for taking fantastic care of clients AND having a flexible, freedom-filled lifestyle. (Isn’t that one of the reasons you went into business in the first place?).
Yes, you CAN have it all—including a 3-day work week!— and I’m going to show you how. Yes, you read that right and it's not hype. This guide isn't about how to cram more work into your already busy life and business. Rather, it's how to manage your work and clients so that you have more time for your life by creating space around the work. In this training guide, I'm going to show you the simple policies, procedures, systems and standards I instituted in my own business that have allowed me to travel, live abroad and work a three-day work while running my business AND taking far better care of clients than I ever did without them.. We're going to cover::
Any of this sound familiar?
So, what’s the problem?
Just about every other day, I hear from some poor soul, literally in tears, who is at her wits end in her business and desperately seeking my help. The common theme I hear from these folks is “I just can’t take it anymore!”
They’re not earning enough money. They’re chained to their computer day in and day out, working practically ’round the clock as hard and fast as they possibly can. Every day is a scramble to put out fires and jump the second a client barks at them. They’ve hit a wall and there’s just nowhere for them to go but down.
And life? Forget that. They have no life anymore.
We’re all grateful to be in business working for ourselves, and we love our work and our clients. But at some point did the work start taking over your life?
How did it get like this?
A large part of the reason it’s gotten this way for them is because they drank the koolaid. Certain factions in our industry have served them up a big ol’ dish of BS and trained them to work like substitute employees to their clients.
They call it “business,” but it’s absolutely not. All they’ve done is trade their brick and mortar job for a virtual one. That’s not a new paradigm whatsoever. It’s just a another name for the same ol’ thing: J-O-B and E-M-P-L-O-Y-E-E. Operating like that will never get you the life and business of your dreams.
More clients and business are lost, not from any lack of skills, competence or burning desire to help, but from a lack of systems and ineffective management practices.
And that’s because doing the work and having the know-how to manage the business and work are two entirely different skillsets. If you don’t have a system that allows you to consistently and reliably support ALL your clients, equally and sustainably for the long-term, you’re going to run into problems once you have more than one or two clients. And naturally, one or two clients does make for a well-earning, self-sustaining, profitable business.
How smartly you manage the business and work is going to directly impact your ability to earn well.
Taking on more clients and work isn’t the answer to earning better, particularly if you are already struggling to juggle and manage your business as it is. And you think you're working like mad now? You’ll have even LESS time and more craziness if you think turning into an admin mill and farming the work out to others is the solution.
One of the places where people fail to plan is how much space they’re going to need around the work. Initially, it’s hard for them to even believe they are finally in business. They’re just so excited to be working for themselves and focused on getting that first client, they don’t think ahead and plan for the time when they have more than one or two clients.
Once they start to get busy, they end up finding themselves scrambling every day to keep up and get work done, and eventually hit a wall of burnout. And let me tell you, killing yourself every day, having a business that is nothing more than a job, and never having time for your life is not helping anyone.
There is a way out (and I’m going to show you EXACTLY how to do it—simply, quickly and easily)!
The trick is to imagine your business as if it were full right from the get go, and to devise your systems, policies and protocols around that scenario. Utilizing effective, productive practices right from the beginning allows you to set proper expectations in clients right from the beginning, while also giving you room to move around in your business and the work.
There IS a way to work with clients as a valuable, strategic support partner, NOT as a substitute employee they don’t pay taxes on.
And the crazy, counter-intuitive thing is, with my freedom-creating system for managing business and the workload, in the process of getting your life back, you’ll actually end up taking WAY BETTER care of your clients!
I want you to have your LIFE back! Isn’t that why you went into business in the first place? Nothing would make me happier than if you would allow me to show you:
If you are DONE being tired, overwhelmed and frustrated trying to keep up in your business, let me show you the systems that will FREE you from your shackles.

Get Paid to Market Your Business with Info Products & Multi-Layered Revenue Streams (GDE-42)
Let's face it, marketing is hard!
No matter how much we focus and simplify and automate, it's still difficult to find time, be consistent and know what to say.
What if you could market in a way that SHOWED potential clients how awesome you are (instead of telling them), and GOT PAID for it at the same time?
Yeah, I know... you'd kill to do that.
Luckily, you don't have to go to that extreme.
You can actually get paid to market your business by creating passive income products that demonstrate your value, provide a way for potential clients to "sample" your services, and generate entire additional streams of revenue while you're at it!
Want off the hamster wheel of poor earning and constantly having to chase down your next meal?
Perry Marshall wrote a blog post that could have been written exclusively for our industry. He was talking about a fellow who suffered from "a weakness that almost every person who is WORTHY of getting somebody's money" has:
“He loves what he does so much, and he loves helping people so much, he forgets to get PAID.”
What ended up happening with this fellow is that he would allow just help me with this little side project clients to get him on a $0 or $2,000 distraction that kept him from picking up a $50,000 check.
This is EXACTLY what I'm always talking about in our industry. Far too many people get caught up frittering away all their time and energy on nickel and dime project work because clients want to "sample" their services and make them audition.
But how long is that $50 or $100 or even $500 going to last you? It might buy dinner that week, but it does nothing to create long-term, ongoing, sustainable cashflow.
It's gone and you're right back on the hamster wheel having to chase down your next meal, before you're even done with the work in front of you. It is a completely exhausting existence!
I totally understand why this happens, though.It's tough building a business that earns you the kind of income you can actually live on. When you're new, you don't know what works and what will just keep you stuck where you are earning poorly.
You think, if only you are accommodating enough, if you bend over backwards to jump through every hoop a prospect tells you to, surely, eventually, they will commit to your retained monthly services.
In fact, it's quite the opposite. It rarely ever happens like that. All you're doing is showing them they DON'T have to commit to anything. That like a trained monkey, you'll keep straining for that carrot on a stick they keep dangling beyond your reach.
This is also a terrible precedent in your business because you've allowed them to set a tone of disrespect for the relationship and a devaluing of you as a professional, which never ends well. We've got an entire industry of working poor because of this dynamic!
Wouldn't you rather be off that hamster wheel and earning bigger bucks? What if you could provide "samples" to prospects in a more professional, less demeaning way, that will command their respect, give them the demonstrable "proof" of your skill, competence and expertise they are seeking? And what if you could do it in a way that creates multi-layered revenue streams and PAYS you to market your business without having your personal time and attention expended cheaply or freely?
