About

Why me:

⇨ I have helped 300+ professionals design, build, package, price and sell their independent services.

⇨ I built a marketplace for creatives.

⇨ I have sold over 300+ intellectual exchanges (conversations, coffees, walk and talks, sessions, programs and more.)

⇨ I am a master conversationalist and a born motivator and cheerleader.

⇨ I have a business mind through and through. I see the world in the form of business opportunities.

⇨ I've learned how to earn anywhere from $250 to $11,000 a month offering unique services to the world. I am on course to work up to $25,000 a month.

⇨ I've learned how to invite a whole lot of goodness, purpose, value, intellect, love, and passion into my life.

A little bit about myself:

"Maxine is an investment banker, turned economist, turned startup founder who is on a mission to help make the world's Brains more creatively available, accessible and useful to society. How? By inspiring and empowering the world’s most creative and intelligent people to share more of their knowledge directly with others through a new online platform and community she built called Pick My Brain. The more creatively available and accessible we can make one another, the more interconnected, successful and beautiful we will ALL become. Other than working on Pick My Brain FT, Maxine openly and actively talks about the future of work, education, mentorship, and a passion-driven economy. She also plays competitive women beach volleyball in Vancouver, Canada."

What it’s like to work with me:

Fun, collaborative, fast, efficient and powerful. I waste no time with my clients and am known to discover and articulate things about my clients that no one else can. I am also known to make my clients' dreams WAY bigger and to think really creatively and simply about how they can add immense value to their lives and the lives of others.

Fun fact about me:

The way I live life has EVERYTHING to do with increasing my ROL (return on life). This means every decision I make, I do so by leading with the question, will this increase my return on life.

International Speaking ($4,500)

Backstory:
A few months ago I got an email through Pick My Brain's "Contact Us Page" that read: "I was googling what "Pick My Brain" meant today because one of my clients used the term in one of our sessions and I had never heard it before and so I looked it up. And that is when I stumbled onto your website and it all became clear. And now that I understand it, I wanted to reach out to you because I am very interested in offering Pick My Brain sessions to my clients. In fact, I think I have been offering them all my life, just without realizing it and without charging for it. Well, I am ready to start charging for it and I was wondering if you could help me do that." After a few Pick My Brain calls with Anna we not only got her up and running to offer paid Pick My Brain calls but we also got really creative with all the other kinds of knowledge based services she could offer her network and clientele. I mean common, look at how cool her profile pic is. Those are the kinds of sessions she runs for people and what she tends to brings out of people.

I am a:
On-demand Shopify Consultant

I want to:
Help you build, tweak, launch, scale and improve upon your Shopify store.

I am available to be booked for:
Direct Shopify Support ($65/hour)

Backstory:
Claudia is a verified Shopify Expert which means that Claudia has worked on and improved upon 100's of Shopify stores. Claudia and I saw an opportunity for her to leverage her knowledge for all those people who were either starting a Shopify store or needed assistance improving upon their Shopify store. And Claudia anticipated the option to talk it out 1-on-1 over the phone as a service would be a hit as she always received requests wondering what it would take to build a Shopify store, how much it would cost, how much time they should commit, whether or not Shopify was the right platform for them, how to make their Shopify store more user friendly, etc. So we packaged all those insider insights into Claudia's Pick My Brain services and now Claudia now has another consistent revenue stream in her pocket for a service she adores offering.

Pick My Brain Profile: https://pickmybrain.world/profiles/sadia-badiei

I am a:
Youtube Influencer

I want to:
Connect with anyone who is interested in: increasing their knowledge regarding nutritional health, learning more about plant-based diets, working for themselves as some point, becoming a content creator, building and or improving upon their own online community.

I am available to be booked for a:
Pick My Brain Call ($140)

Backstory:
In 2016 Sadia quit her job as a dietician at the VGH hospital and started to upload nutritional content to YouTube instead so she could share her knowledge with more people. In 1 years Sadia ended up attracting over 600,000+ subscribers on Youtube and officially became a self-employed YouTube and Instagram influencer. During that time I noticed that Sadia started to drown in emails - no kidding with 600,000 new fans - so the next time we hung out I asked her what if we could direct all those emails towards a page where only those who were willing to pay for her time could connect. She was immediately down and built a Pick My Brain profile the next day. Sadia has been successfully offering Pick My Brain calls to her audience ever since for $140 / hour. More recently, Sadia and I started to think of other ways she could package and sell her time, knowledge and experience. We landed on the potential of offering more consistent Youtube coaching for those who want to build or improve upon their channel and more transparent sponsorship for whoever would like Sadia to test their product and share it with her audience. Pick My Brain has become quite a good revenue stream for Sadia.

As a side gig I run an event based series with my business bestie called #perspectives. It is a series that helps make sense of the world by repackage, reframing and reintroducing relevant and noteworthy topics; where all topics are chosen and shared from a women’s perspective.

The last event we hosted was called ‘Blockchain from a Women’s Perspective” and boy was it a hit. The Vancouver Star even ended up writing an article about us called, “Women claim their stake in blockchain tech.”
https://www.thestar.com/vancouver/2018/04/13/women-claim-their-stake-in-blockchain-tech.html

The next event we have coming up builds off the success of the last event and is called “How to invest in blockchain-related technologies.”
