Hey There Friend,

I LOVE HEARING FROM YOU

Get In Touch... You're the MVP On This Team

Connecting with creatives and entrepreneurs like you makes me so happy I want to spin in my office chair.  Seriously.  So pretty please do not hesitate to reach out.

Questions on how we might work together? Check.  Not sure what strategy service is right for you?  Creative business topics you'd like to read on the blog?  Love notes, speaking requests, favorite Starbucks drinks...  I love them all.

Your story matters because YOU matter friend.  Keep on scrolling for the places we can connect up and see you go from dream to done.

Studio Hours

While I would love to write 9 AM-5 PM, if you know me, you know it would be more like 5 PM to 3 AM most days.  So in the spirit of full transparency, let's just keep it real and say, BY APPOINTMENT & ACCORDING TO MY CALENDAR.

Maybe one day I'll be a cool kid with normal hours.  Until then, hit me up with the form below and let's get you on my calendar.  My custom brand design calendar tends to book out 2-5 months in advance.

Some A's for Your Q's

Bring on the questions.  Here are a few questions I get pretty regularly (in case you might have them too).  If you have a question that isn't listed or want more information about one that is, don't hesitate to hop over here to get in touch and ask away.

WHAT IS YOUR EXPERIENCE IN BUSINESS STRATEGY & MESSAGING?

I have worked in brand strategy, design, & communications in varying leadership capacities for over 20 years.  One nonprofit organization I started and built raised over 7 figures during my time there. 


WHAT DID YOU STUDY IN SCHOOL?  DO YOU HAVE AN ACADEMIC BACKGROUND?

I have my BA in Communications, & my MA in Organizational Leadership (with an emphasis on communications & creative business). I also have 2/3rds of an MBA.  

DO YOU DO JUST DESIGN ANYMORE?

Actually, no. But I do an extremely limited amount of VIP design work for my strategy clients. To be eligible to be considered, you have to have completed a Dream-to-Done™ Business Intensive with me first.







I'M JUST STARTING OUT.  HOW FAR ALONG DO I NEED TO BE IN MY BUSINESS JOURNEY TO HIRE YOU?

As long as you have a fairly clear idea of what you want to offer, you probably are just perfect. If you aren't sure of that yet, you might be better suited for a Creative Strategy Session to start with. But that's what the application process is for.  I would never sell you something I didn't think would be the best fit for you.






I WANT IN & AM READY TO PAY. WHY DO I HAVE TO APPLY INSTEAD OF SIMPLY BUYING THIS OUT RIGHT?

Because I want to make 5000% sure this option is the best fit for you in value, process and timing. I'm just looking out for ya. Because I truly want what will serve you best.

WHY DO YOU REQUIRE HOMEWORK? CAN'T I JUST SHOW YOU WHAT I WANT & YOU COPY IT? 

The best brand & business strategy is about what makes you unique. It is about standing out, not being an echo of someone else's song. The homework is to help you engage with the right questions in order to create the most original, authentic, effective brand for your business. I can't answer them for you because they need to be your answers. But I'll be here as your cheerleader and champion throughout the process.

WHAT IF TELLING THE RIGHT

STORY COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING?

It did for me.  That's why I'm so committed to helping creative small businesses start, scale and succeed at building purpose-fueled brands that thrive from the inside out through strategic storytelling, creative direction, and content-savvy education + resources.

Because the best stories create space for great conversations.  And friend, I can't wait to hear yours.
