Holistic Business Consultant & Leadership MentorLeadership / Strategy / Branding / Design / Implementation
I’m a firm believer that there are no such things as original ideas, only people with the desire to act on them, the means to set them in motion, and the ambition to see them through to fruition.
MY HOLISTIC PHILOSOPHY OF BUSINESS
Every aspect of a business is a direct reflection of the person at the top. Each piece of your company represents a facet of yourself.
My approach to business consulting revolves around starting at the heart of your business – you – and looking at how your ideas, thoughts and vision trickle down into the day-to-day. I’ll help you evaluate your business and strengthen your leadership style, identify potential problem areas, and guide you through refining and improving your entire business from the inside out.
I’m basically your business spirit animal.
VISION + LEADERSHIP
Accountability for your business begins and ends at the top. As a CEO, business owner, or startup founder, every aspect of your businesses is under the direct influence of your vision and leadership. I’ll work with you to define your vision, strengthen your communication of that vision, and mentor you on best practices that will free up your precious time and energy so you can become the best leader you can be.
LET’S POSITION YOUR COMPANY FOR GROWTH BY…
...FRAMING YOUR FUTURE
I coach startup CEOs on how to solidify their vision by defining their core values and developing a 5 year sustainable growth plan.
Whether you’re ready to pivot and completely reposition yourself in the market, are experiencing scaling issues related to rapid growth, or any other company-wide alignment issues, I can help you define or redefine your company vision and brand, and translate that into every aspect of your business from strategy, to company culture, market positioning and design.
I‘ll help you streamline the people and processes within your organization, saving you time and money.
Knowing where to spend and where to save is imperative in an early stage startup. Let’s discuss where your priorities lie, what can be put on hold, how to get your business and team running more efficiently, who you need to hire, your growth goals and what you need to reach them.
...OPTIMIZING YOUR TECHNOLOGY
Work with me to implement processes and develop your technology in the most strategic and efficient way possible to save time, money and resources.
Small companies often have communication and process issues that cause them to move in a circular pattern instead of a straight line. Together, we’ll make sure that you’re using your time, money and resources wisely, creating a development roadmap that aligns with your vision and putting in place the appropriate processes to execute it.
...ALIGNING YOUR TEAM
I‘ll work with you to develop and implement strategies that will align your existing employees and new hires with your big picture vision so that everyone is working toward the same goal.
The fastest way to experience rapid growth is by making sure everyone is on the same page. I can help you align your team, make sure everyone has bought into your vision, provide you with guidelines on how to identify potential hires who also align with your vision, and onboard them so that you create a company culture that thrives.
...COMMUNICATING YOUR VISION
I‘ll develop a strategy and messaging that clearly communicates your vision through all of your marketing channels, including your potential investors.
Landing investors means knowing how to communicate your vision with them, and having a solid go-to-market plan. Executing a solid go-to-market plan requires knowing how to communicate to your target audience. I’ll deliver an overall go-to-market strategy and sub-strategies to meet your goals, and provide direction for market messaging that effectively communicates to your target audiences.
...MAKING YOU A BETTER LEADER
My experience in helping businesses grow and my perspective on leadership provides priceless value to young CEOs that will benefit them for years to come.
I mentor my clients on leadership best-practices and help them find events to make important connections and keep up with the future of their industries, keeping their company relevant. I coach my CEOs on what they needs to know and how they need to communicate it when talking with employees, investors, pitch competitions and much more.

WHY WORK WITH ME?
I have an incredibly diverse background in marketing, advertising, tech and running a business.
Why spend a fortune cobbling together a disparate team of outside contractors who you have to independently manage to meet your goals when you can hire a single consultant that can come in, understand your vision, work with you to develop every strategy necessary to carry it out and then work with you and your team to execute it?
I have 10+ years experience in marketing, advertising and PR working with a variety of clients and companies with a heavy emphasis in tech, ecommerce, and nonprofit. In my time as an independent business and marketing consultant, I’ve worked with many startups and small business, and recurring pattern emerged – the “growing pains” they were experiencing were all a direct result of an unclear vision and internal misalignment, and many times, what killed a business’s potential wasn’t that it was a bad idea, or a lack of funding, or even process issues – it was that there was no clear vision or plan to align decision-making to.
As a consultant, I provide value to my clients by offering them expertise in a wide variety of services within a single partnership. I’ll help you develop your vision, map out a strategy, and then work with your team to execute it at a fraction of the cost of hiring multiple consultants and freelancers.
