Let's get your brilliance into the world, get you paid – and get your free time back.
You got a website online, created a service or course to sell, tested it, worked on being visible on social media, found ways to share from your heart, connect with people who need your help, and reply to all. of. the. emails. You wear 19 different hats during any given week.
If you’re a service provider or agency…
You've honed your craft, deeply care about your client's experience, and love being a trusted advisor to your clients.
If you teach or run a group program…
You love turning insights into education, facilitating group calls, and are figuring out how to launch in a way that works for your life.
And while you're planning your week, doing dishes, and checking notifications, there's a stream of ideas, worries, and nagging concerns that run on repeat in the background.
You find yourself thinking that:
You want to feel in control and
grow your business the right way for you
And you know you can get there way faster with support
Marketing can feel tricky because everything is time delayed, but it's 100% cause and effect.
With a trained eye and systematic approach, we can find what's not connecting, fine-tune, follow-through - and change everything. Here's the process I use to make it happen.
① Do the right people reliably engage with and buy from you?
If not, we'll start at phase one and build strong foundation systems.
② Do enough of the right people discover you each month to meet your sales goals?
If not, we'll start at phase two and expand your audience.
③ Do your opinions about marketing, sales, and your business feel good in your body?
If not, while we work on your business we'll use phase three to manage your mind.
For most clients, this is the primary focus of our work.
Do the right people reliably engage with and buy from you?
If not, then I go into my library of marketing and business strategy tools, and we partner to refine your strategy.
In the end, your potential clients understand exactly how you help them, are already being helped by you (with content), and have regular opportunities to show interest in working together, and to buy.
Work here helps you to…
Do enough people discover you each month to keep sales humming?
If not, then we explore energetically aligned ways to get your business in front of people who have never heard of it before. No sweaty palms or cold DM's allowed!
Focusing here gives you a plan to…
Note: We only move into audience growth once we know your foundation systems can hold water
Do your opinions about marketing, sales, and your business feel good in your body?
Here's why this matters thoughts and opinions cause feelings, and your feelings determine all the actions you take (and avoid) in your business. Ignoring your feelings leads to working against your body, self sabotage, and burnout.
I use an evidence-based approach to coaching that's grounded in psychology to align with my client's goals, get to the root of what holds them back, and help them find their way forward.

Krista Rae was a WordPress developer who had launched retainer services to create recurring revenue, but after months of sharing the offer her clients didn't seem to understand and weren't booking. After checking her offer to make sure it was amazing, the audit moved on to her sales page, and the sales emails she had been sending.
She made small copy changes to her sales page and emails to make them more emotionally relevant and specific to her clients experience. After publishing the changes, her clients and website visitors saw the value in the exact same offer. Now they couldn't get enough, and the bookings came pouring in.
You both love what you've created
You’ve got so many pieces of the success that you pictured when you first started, and you’re really good at what you do. But trying to solve all the problems alone is getting old.
Since 2009, I‘ve been a trusted advisor to over 600 one-on-one online business owners, like you.
I know what it takes to build and run a small business, because I've done it, twice. I went from charging $500 for website designs, to running a web design agency of top bloggers and having a 6+ month long waiting list. I fell in love with business, become a trained, licensed business strategist, and have been consulting and teaching ever since.
I've created, taught and launched many online courses and group programs, managed a large team, pivoted my business, been a leading social seller on $2.5+ million dollar launches, spoken from the stage, revived failing launches, trained as a conversion copywriter, and hit send on $30k proposals.
I have lived experience with building a thriving business as a queer mom with anxiety, depression, and ADHD.
Past clients include:

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
No, none of my clients market the exact same way, and I don't have any “required” ways of marketing. I focus on what works for my clients, and what gets them results.
My work holds up outside of the bubble of online business and digital marketing. That's how I've worked on strategy for the University of Minnesota, the National Film Board of Canada, and with non-profits like Social Planning Council which went on to form the United Way.
I often work with clients on “one-to-one” marketing strategies like: building your personal network, generating referrals, and designing mutually beneficial collaborations.
I also work with clients on less traditional “one-to-many” marketing strategies like going on tour with 100% educational trainings, landing podcast interviews, lead magnet swaps, and others.
Personally, while I've built a significant social media following for my own business (140k followers on Pinterest, 6k on Twitter, 3.5k on Instagram) but I've also taken years at a time off of social media because I wanted to. My first business was a fully booked web design agency, and we accomplished that without social media or newsletters.
My clients range from solo service providers, consultants, and freelancers, to business partnerships, medium sized teams, non-profits, and agencies.
My clients offers take the form of done-for-you services, done-with-you services, digital courses, digital products, group programs, paid communities, masterminds, memberships, hybrid programs, and more.
I have worked directly with over 600 one-on-one clients, including:
Health and Wellness
Therapists, physiotherapists, nutritionists, dieticians, running coaches, and health coaches
Marketers, Writers, and Designers
Digital marketers, social media managers, web designers, bloggers, copywriters, content writers, web developers, brand designers, community managers, marketing consultants, and more.
Imposter syndrome coaches, career coaches, life coaches, business coaches, and health coaches.
Wedding photographers, documentary family photographers, birth photographers, and editorial photographers.
Tutors, professional development trainers, in-classroom assessment.
Creatives, Artists and Podcasters
Interior designers, podcasters, painters, fine artists, fiber artists, printmakers, t-shirt designers, and brick and mortar shop owners.
Yes, I have over 13 years of experience with instructional design and launches for online courses, group programs, masterminds, hybrid programs (and more) for myself, and with my clients.
If you need support designing or launching a learning experience, please apply and we can talk about it.
Absolutely. There are a few reputable, free VA matchmaking services that I connect clients with, and excellent VA's I have personally worked with. I often coach my clients through their hiring process, and help them create training for their new hires.
I'm a former web design agency owner, with graduate level Human Resources Management training, and I've hired over 18 contractors in my businesses. I have a lot of experience with hiring, screening, and onboarding team members.
Hell no – and you should run from anyone who does. It's not realistic or ethical.
What I can do for all clients is help them see unexpected opportunities, to understand their choices, so they can make decisions that they love.
If that sounds good to you, you should apply to coaching.
