Let’s face it: Small business isn’t for sissies.
Taking your idea from concept to fruition, gambling your time, money and reputation on a hunch? It’s just about the scariest thing you can do. But here’s the dirty little secret no one tells you: You don’t have to do it alone. In fact (and here’s your first reality check): you can’t. Seriously, it can’t be done. So, let yourself off the hook – and let me help you bring your dream to life!
How I Do It
When does this get easy?
When you first started your business, armed with a brilliant idea and boundless energy, everything seemed shiny and happy and full of possibility. Now, you’re spending your days trying to decipher Instagram algorithms and SEO strategies and hiring decisions and wholesale pricing, and you just wish someone could drop in with a carpet bag and a talking umbrella, solve all of your problems and remind you of what you loved about your business in the first place.
That’s where I come in. Part adviser, part strategist, part cheerleader – put simply, I’m here to solve your problems and bring out the best in your business. My professional background makes me the perfect person to help you balance the creative with the practical, untangle that mess of knots that’s keeping you up at night, and put you back in touch with your vision.
Whether you’re a fledgling business owner with a great idea and no clue how to bring it to life, or a seasoned pro who’s reached a pivotal turning point in your business and needs an objective partner to help you parse the options and find the right path, think of me as your personal Mary Poppins in the big, bad world of small business (sadly, minus the talking umbrella).
