Welcome. I am so glad you are here.
Hey Queer* Small Business Owners!
Do you want to lead a business that is meaningful, inclusive, & fun?
What if it also supported you to live a financially sustainable life?
If you are following that inner demand to make a difference, I think you will find something useful below.
*Wondering if you are Queer-enough to be here? Well, that is usually a good sign that you are.
My clients tend to be tired of business as usual. They are into alternative economies and/or ready to create and refine a meaningful and values based business (and life).
We work together to launch or stabilize their business, hire & build teams (or support systems), and embody their values along the way.
I wonder what brought you here…
You may have found your way here because you are used to being on the outside of “normal.” And now, you're trying to run a business with your values first. Your ways of relating to business, entrepreneurship, and money are so different than almost anyone you see in business.
Are you driven by your sense that this can be done in a different way?
You're in business and yet you are so tired of consumerism, extractive economics, bait-and-switch sales strategies, and what capitalism has done to the world. It would be easy to stay out of the business game, because it is icky and full of oppression, but we need you in this movement.
When clients come to see me they are facing challenges like:
If you are experiencing any (or all) of these things, all is well!
The good news is, it doesn’t have to be this way. And you don't have to travel this journey alone.
Your business can feel good
Your business (services, products, store front) can contribute to others
Your business can feel safe and inclusive while thriving and support you to live a financially sustainable life
Your business can be FUN!
The little voice inside of you is really resilient and, even if you have ignored it in the past, it is not too late.
Inside of you, there is a great longing to contribute. I believe that if you build your business from there, you will be able to build a financially sustainable business that is hella fun.
What would it be like to have:
I offer 3 very simple coaching packages:
will support you in finding clarity about what is important to you within your business. Together, we will co-create a vision that will support you to take small, sweet steps with ease, in order to achieve your biggest dreams. Plus, I will help you clear out all the other BS out of the way.
is an opportunity to identify your money patterns and create step-by-step, doable practices to establish and maintain the relationship with money you have always wanted. I will bring in my experience as a bookkeeper and small business owner (food + events) as appropriate.
will allow you to fine tune the ways you want to express yourself to those that you care about most to increase your connections and relationship satisfaction. I will bring in my 7 years of Nonviolent Communication training.
Most packages run for 6 months. I will occasionally work with someone for 3 months if there is an acute need or focus.
Rates + Services:
My 6 month package includes:
What is the cost/value?
When I was a bookkeeper, the average monthly rate to achieve financial clarity on your books was ~$425/month. I believe that coaching will bring way more than financial clarity, so it seems like a good place to begin. I know as a small business owner, it can be a big deal to make this type of investment so I offer my services on a self identified sliding scale..
$350/Month if you’re investing in your business (limited spaces available)
$425/Month if your business is covering basic costs
$550/Month if your business is financially thriving
$700-1k/Month If you are connected with an entity that is providing funding
I encourage clients to choose the tier that is a healthy stretch but not a hardship for the client or the organization.
10% of all monthly income is put into a scholarship fund. Funds are dedicated to subsidize services for Queer Identified folks & People of Color. All remaining funds are donated to organizations that support the Movement for Black Lives and increase access to "home" for marginalized individuals and families. If you are clear that coaching would be supportive for you and the only barrier is money, a scholarship is the perfect option for a win-win.

One last thing…
I know this is a big decision to make.
My core promise is to support folks to create environments where everyone can win, so that everyone can play.
Coaching requires a good fit. If you like what you have read so far and want to keep exploring the opportunity, schedule a free Discover + Navigate Session today!
I offer free discovery calls because I genuinely enjoy meeting other small business owners and hearing more about what you are up to. I also find that it will give you a sense of my coaching style and support you to decide if you will benefit from the services I offer.
I love sharing any referrals or strategies that might be supportive for you on your path, and this conversation will help me dial in those recommendations for you.
The reality is, you can take me up on this opportunity anytime you want. I am in for the long haul. And if you are chewing on a big idea but going round in circles, why wait?
