You’ve read all the books and listened to all the podcasts.
You have rocked your social media game and followers are flooding in. 
Best yet, you have mastered your craft, and the crowd loves it (ooh! ahh!)

But there’s one problem: 



You don’t know if you can afford that plane ticket to Bali because cash always seems tight. Even if you ate Mac and Cheese for a month so you could book your trip, you don’t know if you could take time away from your business.



Grab your essentials. I planned an action-packed adventure for you.


You haven’t given yourself a raise in years.

for the creative entrepreneur and small business owner who is ready to work less, make more, and get the most out of life.

You work nonstop

I know you...because I was once you

If I can guess anything about you, it would be that you listen to podcasts/audiobooks on the road, attend retreats during the off-season, and crack open a new biz book as soon as the last one hits the shelf. 

You crave the brain-wrinkling education that personal development provides and utilize the absolute most of your downtime.

You’re ready to grow your small business in a significant way so you can make a positive impact on your local community.

But perhaps you…
Haven’t hit all the sales goals you imagined. 
Don’t understand all the reports your bookkeeper shares with you. 
Are not confident enough in your financial understanding to make the next BIG decision.






No matter where you are at on the entrepreneurial path, you know deep down in your heart that you are destined for more. You are intended to serve and give in a meaningful way. Your business is your ticket to success. 

You may be burning the candle at both ends, pursuing your side hustle after a day job, just dying to feel ready to quit the cruel cubicle world. 

You may be starting to panic in your first few years of business, not understanding why the numbers just don’t add up and why you haven’t been able to pay yourself yet. 

You may even be several years into this journey with a solid team and an office, but you have a big shoot-for-the-stars goal and need to know when to go for it!

You don’t need permission to grow. You need help mapping out your path to financial success in your creative business. We can do this together!

Introducing...

Think of this as a service trip, where you roll up your sleeves and dig in the dirt. 

We’re going to get a little messy, uncovering the real numbers in your creative business. We may face hard truths, such as misaligned spending habits or productivity problems. 

Our goal, together, is to diagnose your financial struggles and come up with a sustainable plan of action for your business.
