Developing a Successful Mediation Business: A How to Guide
Melissa Meyer, M.A & Markus Meyer CM, DM, DC, PC.
Collaborative Success, Inc. Consultation, Education & Mediation, was incorporated in May, 2020, right in the middle of the COVID Pandemic and has grown from a one-provider home-based business that started in 2015 to a 7-team member business that provides voluntary and court-ordered services that include Co-parent Coaching, Domestic Mediations, Domestic Conciliations and Parenting Coordination across the State of Kansas. Since its inception, Collaborative Success, Inc. has served hundreds of co-parent teams, helping them reach solutions that both parents are committed to and that are positively impacting children’s lives.
Learn from the founders, Melissa Meyer and Markus Meyer what steps they took to build the foundation for their business; what helped boost the success of the organization; what services evolved as the main lines of business; how work is conducted in person and via Zoom; how CSI advertises their services and how success evolved over the past four years since making the leap from a one-person business to a team of seven.
This webinar is relevant for attorneys and non-attorneys alike as the aim is to teach the steps of either a new business, or the creation of a separate service wing.
