I have been working with small businesses in arts, education, and agriculture since I was a child.
My experience ranges from creative design to business management, from strategic planning to financial analysis.
With an extreme passion in supporting entrepreneurs, I taught myself cosmetic coding and have been designing websites pro bono for over 10 years.
Beginning in 2016, I consult with what I call “passion-based” or "artisan-based" small businesses. This descriptor is very broad for a specific reason - Everyone deserves to be successful in the business sense, even if they don't have the technical business background or experience.
There is currently a disconnect between the "professional business" world and the arts community. There is this assumption that you pick to either
- be "successful" in the financial sense by selling out or leaving the arts to hobbies
- live for your art, starve forever, and share a studio apartment with three other people
BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY
You can be successful financially as a legitimate business without "selling out". And I want to help you in any way that I can.
