I've been successfully supporting creative entrepreneurs for quite some time.
In 2007 I joined a tiny team of creative beasts working to build a new website named Etsy, a marketplace for artist and entrepreneurs.
I spent five years leading Etsy Seller Education Team, together we built, supported and educated the community that used this new platform. In that time I worked with thousands of creative small businesses, wrote thousands of pieces of content, and lead hundreds of entrepreneurial workshops.
I've moved on to build and support other startup communities and teams, and help other creative entrepreneurs and founders bring their dreams to life. I always seek those creative little beasts with grit & dedication. Sound like you? Send me a note, let's chat!
Book a consultation, live shop critique, or product development session.

This course contains 6 hot weeks of focused Summer Shop Makeover sales-boostin' tips and tactics. I pull out all the stops to keep each week's tasks spicy*, fun, and motivating.
Each week in the Summer Shop Makeover course, you'll get a detailed To Do List, 1-2 worksheets, articles & 'extra credit' resources that will get you found and accelerate your sales (Etsy, Shopify, etc). Your first email will arrive right after purchase, and from there you'll automagically get an update in your email inbox every 7 days.
Each week is JUICY and packed with work that builds on the last -- branding, copywriting, SEO, marketing & more. Be prepared: I love a DIY-chose-your-own adventure worksheet, be on the look out for a handful of these!
WEEK 1 - Branding (Brand vision, mission, strength and motivation + makeover plan tips)
WEEK 2 - Product Development and Inventory (Conversion rates, product that sell work)
WEEK 3 - Copywriting + Sellin' Yourself in Print (Product pages that produce results)
WEEK 4 - Marketing (Target market, paid marketing tactics, free marketing tools)

A+ students with a lot of time to study will cross off all tasks on their weekly 'To Do' list, but there's enough variety here for you to go at your own pace.
Who is this course for? You're probably a creative entrepreneur, know what you want to sell and have taken a stab at it. Now you want to get to the next level. You want to worry less, and be less reactive (last minute sales no more!). You probably want a very cold slice of watermelon, too.
