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.
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.
Being overwhelmed by the nuts & bolts of setting up a business
Under-pricing services (or giving too much away for free) because you are afraid that charging for services conflicts with your values
Making a big pivot within a sector (from cinematographer to director, or decreasing hours at the bread & butter job, taking on a big contract)
Looking for help with your business but no one seems to be the right fit (either too straight, promising overblown results, or untrustworthy?)
Overwhelmed by growth and enrolling support, and the time investment it takes
Sorting out how to share responsibilities and workload with new team members & colleagues
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!
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.
A clear and inspiring vision to guide you on your journey
The courage to discover and tend to your wildest dreams
The ability to let go of old habits and create a joyful practice of new habits that truly support you
Greater focus, momentum, and inspiration (Chutzpah)
Small, sweet, meaningful steps that clearly bring you towards your vision with ease
Moments of reflection, where you can look back and see how far you have come (where you would like to go next)
A rooted sense of gratitude and generosity
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.
2 - 55 minute sessions/month
Unlimited text & email support
Monthly Lightening Sessions: optional 15-20 minute support calls
All the best handouts and guides (offered as needed and always optional)
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..
$250/Month if you’re making ends meet
$425/Month if you’re financially stable (what many small businesses pay for bookkeeping services that provide financial clarity)
$600/Month if you’re financially thriving
$700-1k/Month If you are connected with a corporation 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.
Small business owners or professional service providers
Leaders in a field that they love (or a desire to be), looking to increase impact and joy at work
Folks looking to solve this problem in one session or two, I care way more about you way too much to do that to you
If you are strongly homo-phobic, anti-feminist or blindly racist please address that first!

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. And that also requires a good fit. So if you like what you have read so far and want to keep exploring the opportunity, schedule a free Discovery 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 whether you think 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?
