My one mission- To help you grow and market your business with clarity and confidence, so you can stand-out in your industry, make consistent sales & serve the people you are called to serve without all the stress or crazy hours.
With a Bachelor’s degree in International business and marketing and after working 5 years as a marketing manager for a 1 billion dollar company, I decided to say adios to the corporate-level life and started my own thing!
Now, I get to help passionate creative entrepreneurs (like you!) grow their business (without hustlin’ or strugglin’) and implement high-converting marketing strategies that help them make a bigger income (and impact!).
My friends say I’m the straight shooter, tell it like it is one of the group, who challenges you to grow all while being your personal cheerleader. I would say that is a pretty accurate description- in both my personal and business life. I'm also the designated weirdo of the bunch (a title I hold very proudly!)
The truth is, I believe growing a business doesn’t mean hustlin’ and strugglin’- working long hours till 2AM and attempting to do #allthethings. It also doesn’t mean hiding behind a computer screen and walking through the trenches alone. It means more freedom, more direction, more time, more support ,more opportunities to serve the people you were called to serve - and most importantly, MORE FUN!
For as long as I can remember I was either curled up in a corner writing short stories in my notebook or shaking my booty across a ballet dance floor (total weirdo- I told you!). You can say my love for the creative world started early. I was also that child that LOVED English & math – yes, a person who loves words and numbers (we do exist!)
At the age of 18, while attending my college orientation (having no idea what I wanted to major in), I randomly stumbled into the business school information lecture (God knew what He was doing!). I sat through that 2-hour presentation wide eyed with my heart racing—and that’s when it all changed.
I quickly realized that marketing combined everything I loved—storytelling, creativity, numbers, strategy and the chance to do things outside the box. Needless to say, I was hooked.
After graduating, I started off in the fast-paced life of corporate marketing working for a 1 billion-dollar company as a marketing and logistics manager.
My days consisted of everything I loved- leading a team of 40+ people (who became like family), setting goals and creating a strategy to achieve them and coming up with creative ways to improve reach and sales...but there was one problem, the 60+ hour work weeks.
This workaholic life took its toll on me and I decided to switch careers completely and went back to school for dental assisting (totally random, I know!). But after graduating and landing a job in the top orthodontic office in my area I realized that I really missed marketing- but I could not go back to that corporate life.
So, I started a blog as a creative outlet. After using all the marketing skills I acquired from my degree and years in corporate marketing, in less than one year that little blog was making money.
It didn’t take long before people started reaching out and asking me for help. That’s when I realized- there were so many creative entrepreneurs that had no idea how to effectively grow or market their business and just how much bogus marketing advice there was on the internet.
I also realized that I LOVED helping them and building a little online community that felt like family!
So, after much prayer, I said adios to the 9-5 and traded in my scrubs for a corner home office where that once little blog is now a full-blown business helping other passionate women grow profitable and purposeful businesses that allow them to serve the people they are meant to serve.
