Let's get your brilliance into the world, get your free time back – and get you paid.
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
know you're growing your business
the right way for you
But when you try to apply all your ideas and research to your own business, the big picture vision is juuuuuuuust a little overwhelming.
Business can feel tricky because everything is time delayed, but it's 100% cause and effect. That means we can find the challenge, remove roadblocks, and it can change!
To shift your results, you need to slow down so you can speed up.
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.
Work here allows you to…
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.
It's the kind of work that sees my clients raise their rates and get fully booked, watch their engagement rates jump, and hit their launch goals without being levelled by the process.
…Aah, can't you just see yourself relaxing by the pool, as ice clinks in your fancy drink?
Palm Springs, here you come! You're leaving your laptop at home, and don't even feel guilty.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Yes, my team updates my coaching availability live on this page as it changes. I work with a very limited number of clients each quarter so it can change quickly, but if the apply now buttons are visible above, I am accepting new clients.
Absolutely. I call this “undermarketing” your business, and it's so much more common than you think. Especially with done-for-you service providers.
Even if you haven't been actively marketing, there are things that are working for you now, and things that have worked in the past. I draw that out from you, and learn how you like to work. Then we decide together on energizing, low effort project to add to your system and find what works for you.
No. The business coaching world is filled with this kind of empty hype coming from business famous teachers (with giant teams who actually do the work) to inexperienced coaches and experts alike.
That's not what I do.
Do I have a reliable process? Hell yes! Do I love helping my clients find income opportunities? Absolutely! But what I care way more about is avoiding burnout, and creating a business that's sustainable and actually feels good to run.
Maybe it's not as exciting as selling a six-figure fantasy, but instead I offer my deep, multidisciplinary experience in business, lived experiences, and strategic perspective.
I'm candid, direct, and open – and I believe that grounded approach serves my clients better.
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.
No problem. Select the package that is your best guess of what would help you, and include that you want to talk about packages on your application. We can discuss it on your discovery call.
From my heart to yours: I get it. You're not alone. This isn't proof that you're bad at business. I would love to be your coach.
Also: Part of a client's job is to be messy. That's why you hire me! You get to roll up and bring along any with drama, messiness, blame, or confusion and then we sort it out together. There is tremendous strength in letting yourself be fully seen, and it's healing to have someone who knows the whole picture and still believes in you and your goals.
I have lived experience with depression, generalized anxiety disorder, late diagnosed ADHD, and C-PTSD. I know what it's like to be in struggle mode, for things to be messy, and the process of healing.
I have lived experience with how mental health challenges, chronic health issues, and being neurodivergent can impact our experiences, capacity to work, thought patterns, and actions. I'm currently completing an intensive ADHD coach training program, to add to my skills for supporting myself and my neurodivergent clients.
I would love to be on your team.
My only “rule” is that I only work with businesses that are already running, have a proven offer, and have made their first sales.
Most of my clients are running their business full-time, but I also work with motivated folks who are pivoting from another business, or are side hustling, or are transitioning out of a traditional career.
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 choose one of the packages that fits the level of support you would like and apply above.
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.
