What I Do
Greetings! I specialize in helping people who don’t consider themselves “businesspeople” make the transition to self-employment and find success on their own terms. I do this through books, teaching and one-on-one coaching. If you’re wondering how to turn a skill or passion into a business — or how to up your game in freelancing or a business you’re already running — I can help.
Join My Email List
I send periodic emails with business tips, new podcast episodes AND special deals and discounts for my coaching services. If you enter your Zip code I’ll also send occasional announcements about location-specific events.
Coaching and Classes
I am an incorrigible problem-solver, and I love helping others strategize and figure out their best next moves. I offer a range of coaching services and workshops on self-employment and small business topics. While I have specific expertise in legal and communications issues, I often work with clients on big-picture goals and real-life challenges like staying motivated and handling anxiety and doubt. I’ve learned innumerable lessons along the path of being self-employed for 20+ years and I deeply enjoy sharing what I’ve learned with others.
Today was my last of four sessions with Peri Pakroo. I cannot say enough good things about my experience working with her! If you have questions concerning your business (big or small) or maybe just need a little objective perspective on your work, HIRE PERI.
I am afflicted with a love of communications and addicted to publishing. I specialize in media development for clients in health care, legal and nonprofit fields. Contact me for work samples and/or to discuss your project.
- I play music in a few bands including Peri & the FAQs and No Collusion.
- I am addicted to thrifting, especially vintage books.
- In 2013, when she was 6, my daughter was diagnosed with an evil blood disorder, aplastic anemia. Treatment and recovery took years. She finally stopped taking medication in 2017 and while our family is still regaining our bearings, she’s doing great. 🙂
- My favorite holiday is No Rooz — Persian New Year — which is celebrated on the first day of Spring.
