I know that you may be feeling stuck, overwhelmed and thinking that none of this is possible for you... but let me snap you out of thinking that way right now. That is a big 'ole lie. It IS possible! And I can't wait to show you how to make it all happen.

Because just like many of you, my most important roles here on this side of Heaven as a child of God are as a wife and as a mom. I'm married to the love of my life and I’m a homeschooling / hockey mom to two amazing teen-age kiddos that keep me on my toes. My mission is to help YOU cultivate a profitable business by creating a beautiful brand and designs that convey your unique personality and message so you can make intentional connections with those you want to serve. I want you to get excited to go to work on Mondays . . . and everyday!

PS... I promise that my love of good books, red shoes, fresh flowers, and belly laughs will add a lot of FUN and SMILES while we work together.

I'm SO excited and happy that you have connected with me and look forward to learning more about you, too.

 
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel

I’M EXPERIENCED - IN LIFE AND IN BUSINESS. I know you’re way too polite to ask my age, but I’m into my 40’s now, which means I’ve got plenty of life experience under my belt. I’ve also created FOUR prior successful businesses, in FOUR different industries, before beginning this current venture. As the current Director of Marketing and Business Development in a 63 year old company, I’ve got the perspective, knowledge and know-how to play the long game and make intentional connections which is what you’ve got to do to create continued success within your business.

I’M BALANCED. Yes, I’m a business owner. AND I’m a wife AND a mom AND a follower of Jesus. I understand that while your business is a huge part of your life, you don’t desire to spend every waking minute on it. Instead, you’re looking to build a prosperous business that allows you to be generous AND plenty of flexibility for your health, hobbies, and of course your family, and friends. I’ve created this balanced lifestyle for myself, and I know how to help you get it, too.

 
My family and I were asked to be the Grand Marshall Family at Disney in 2015! It was one of the best days EVER!

4 Crazy, Fun and Interesting Personal Facts About Me!

  1. I’m married to the love of my life and have two amazing (teenage! pray for me!) kiddos that I homeschool (keep praying for me! LOL) and two in heaven that I can’t wait to hug someday.

  2. I’ve been a Radiation Therapist (cancer treatment) since 1998. I’m still licensed in NYS and work per diem as an auditor for the American College of Radiation Oncology.

  3. I love to travel and I’ve been to 43 of the 50 states. I’m not quite sure how or why I will get to visit (one of the seven remaining states) North Dakota. ROAD TRIP anyone?

  4. I’ve been on HGTV, Tiny House Hunters. It was so much crazy fun. We filmed for 5 days, (66 hours) and the show was only 22 minutes long. It was such a great experience. So let me know if you ever see my funny face on your TV screen ;)

  5. BONUS: I’m a 7 (joyful person!) on the Enneagram! I know that through ALL the ups and downs in life, God is ALWAYS right beside me. He is my Rock, my Redeemer and my Savior. And He can be yours today, too!

 
I was on HGTV Tiny House Hunters and it was a BLAST! PS… They asked me to be serious in this clip. It was SO hard!

Wow! What a journey!

Now that I’ve told you some crazy, fun and interesting facts about me, let me tell you a little about my entrepreneurial journey.

From my days selling hand-made bracelets in the schoolyard at 10 years old, to creating my first successful business at age 23, my next at 29, another at 36, and now in my 40's as a brand designer, business consultant, and magazine publisher of my own business, AND as the Director of Marketing and Business Development for a 65+ year old company, I’ve had an entrepreneurial spirit from the time I can remember!

And what's cool is that these businesses were across varied industries... which taught me that it's not only about what kind of business you want to build, but it's about using your strengths, your skills and your experience to find your “sweet spot.” And for me, that sweet spot is as a brand designer and business consultant/coach.

As a busy wife and mom, I completely understand the challenges that come with growing a business, creating stunning designs AND having a family. Maintaining a flexible and balanced schedule so I can be organized and productive (in business AND life!) is important so I don’t end up losing my marbles, my family and my relationship with Christ. So…

If you’re feeling lost in a sea of confusion, I’m here to toss you a life raft to shore!

I know you’re the type of woman who’s so generous and giving that you’re probably putting your own needs, desires and passions last on the list. You know you want to create a beautiful brand and stunning designs to grow your business, and you’re ready to take ACTion, but you’re concerned about how much time it will take and how it will affect your family’s finances.

You don’t have much margin for trial and error,
and you’re ready to do things RIGHT the first time!

You know that investing wisely upfront and delegating those frustrating tasks will pay dividends down the road.

Well, Darlin...
