We believe in an intentional, holistic approach to marketing, because although your business has many moving parts, they all work together to form a whole, a single entity that grows, adapts and evolves. Your business is always changing, so your strategy should too.
With a holistic view of your goals, strengths and problem areas, we craft business strategies and solutions that will grow with you.

Who We Help

For Small Business, by Small Business; that’s our motto, and we mean it. Chances are, there was no school or teacher that prepared you for everything you’d face when you started your business. You’ve done ok on your own so far and are proud of it, but you’re ready to start looking for help to take it further. The problem is, you’re afraid nobody will understand you, your story, and your vision. After all, who could possibly know everything you’ve been through to get where you are now?

Well, you might be surprised if you try us. We’re great listeners, and we know firsthand the ups and downs of running a small business. Together, we’ll help you create and implement an intentional plan based on your needs, not a one-size-fits-all mold. Because your business is perfectly imperfect, and that’s the secret sauce, the magic formula that makes you one of a kind.

What We Do

Brand Strategy & positioning

business consulting

personal & team development

To build a thriving business, you have to sell more than just a product or service - you need an experience, a story, a certain magic or nostalgia that draws people in and brings them back for more. We’ll help identify your audience, differentials, and those intangible qualities that make you unforgettable and integrate them into the day to day of your business.

Sometimes you’re so busy working for your business that you don’t have time to work on your business. That’s where we come in. We'll run a diagnostic, assessing what is and isn’t working for you, and then create an actionable, big-picture plan for everything from profitability to marketing. You'll walk away with more clarity and an action plan for next steps.

As your business develops, the time comes to grow your team and start delegating. We can help make the process as smooth as possible; through personality assessment tools we'll guide you to solutions for maximizing potential, managing conflict, keeping your team engaged and, most importantly, giving you back your precious time.

Jenny Manes

"Jen’s understanding of small business and all that it takes to keep it functioning successfully is flat out amazing. Her ability to see the big picture and to know precisely the next step in the development, clearly articulated explanations and generous guidance has helped me in shoring up my existing business." 

Madly Wish

“It's difficult to find words to describe something that is.... everything. In the last 12 months, it's been the difference between 'me' and 'we'. A lighthouse. A safe haven for thoughts, brainstorming and someone to ride with on the rollercoaster of entrepreneurship.”
