Schedule a Coaching Session with Dave

Hello! You are one of the extremely special human guinea pigs who has stumbled across my new page for booking appointments. Thanks for checking this out. (If you ended up here by accident, lucky you! If you’re not familiar with my services, please check out my coaching policies and pricing before you tumble down this rabbit hole.)

Globejotting Travel Mascot Sven Wondermoose always loves serving as a placeholder image when it involves sitting on a beach in Bali.

This page is still in a highly experimental stage. It could explode at any moment, or sprout fangs, or turn into a pumpkin that looks like Sean Spicer. (But you love living on the edge like that, don’t you?)

But seriously, if I’ve asked you to help me test this out to make sure it’s working before I unveil it to the masses, I appreciate your assistance.

To book an appointment:

  1. Choose the length of appointment you want.
  2. Choose a date.
  3. Choose a time. The available times should show up in your time zone, and the calendar will tell you what time zone you are scheduling in. If the time zone appears wrong, please let me know!
  4. Bask in the giddy excitement of our upcoming conversation. (And rest assured, I am equally goose-bumpy with anticipation.)

A couple of things you should know:

  • If you don’t see days or times available that you need, please e-mail me and let me know what you’re looking for. This schedule is a loose approximation of what I plan to offer once I ramp things up in a couple of months, but I might have other times available.
  • If you don’t need to talk for a full hour (for example, if you’re paying for an hour that includes 30 minutes of my reading / critiquing time beforehand, and 30 minutes to talk), please still book a 60-minute appointment.
  • If you’re not sure whether you want 60 or 90 minutes, please book 60. I’ve scheduled a 30-minute buffer between each appointment and can usually go longer if needed.

Once you book an appointment, you should receive an e-mail right away from Calendly ( You should also receive a personal e-mail from me within 24 hours. (Eventually, I will trust Calendly to send out confirmations, but for now, I’m sending a second one as a back-up until we’re sure this is all functioning smoothly.)

If you don’t receive a confirmation from Calendly within an hour, and another from me within 24 hours, please e-mail me to make sure your booking worked.

Thanks for helping me test this out! It should eventually make the scheduling process easier for you and me.
