Hey Queer* Small Business Owner!
Are you finding the responsibilities of running your own business to be overwhelming? Are the finances stressful and confusing? Is it more lonely than you expected?
It is why I am hosting a 3 month program for you! This program will support you to find more ease and enjoyment with your business (and life) so that you can have more fun!
Did you hope this would be smooth sailing once you got out of the 9-5 and stopped working for other people?
It can be quite the rude awakening to discover heaps of internal demands, overwhelm, and burnout. It is so common. It often comes with being a one human show, but you are not alone.
Add in the desire and commitment to make a difference, and to do things differently, this whole dream might be starting to feel impossible.
It is so normal for big hearted visionary leaders to take the leap to self employment only to find themselves faced with more money issues, people problems, and exhaustion than when they were in their annoying normy job.
It’s ok, and it doesn’t have to be like this.
I support business owners to look at practices, build skills, and set up systems that really (and finally) work.
When I was 24 and full of energy and excitement (still true, just looks different), I launched two businesses. One was a Community Supported Culinary Adventure (Apothocurious), the other a summer camp for adults (Queer Camp). And boy was I spinning my wheels! Trying something new with each new product or event, making it work financially, but never knowing what enough was, and so disconnected from a larger vision and feeling the loneliness of that reality.
I spent 10 years taking strategic jobs, enrolling in business and collaboration trainings, and hosting experiments to address so many of the struggles that come with the early stages of small business.
I created this program to curate all of the best
and most effective learnings from my experience to support you to develop the skills and mindset that will make business more fun, so that you can set up systems that support a much larger vision.
I am offering my next 3 month grow-hort to 6 courageous small business owners.
If you find yourself struggling with any of these items:
Over 3 months I will support you to:
This program will focus in 4 major areas:
The four skills
This program will focus in 4 skills areas: Communication, Enrollment, Tracking + Reflecting, and Creation (aka PLAY!). If you develop your skills in any (or all) of these areas would make your business more meaningful, easeful, and fun this might be the group for you!
The benefits of developing strategic skill sets is only effective if you simultaneously build systems that allow for less reinventing of the wheel and more riding the fricken bike. It is like meaningful and custom built automation for YOU.
This is where skills and systems really click - when you know which skills you want to develop, and you have the systems to support them, your practices will be where you start to see progress and your impact skyrockets.
By implementing key practices, skills, and systems that support you to have focus, clarity, and meaningful results, your success is inevitable.
How will it look?
3 month program - starting either in September or January 2024

"Working with Slam as a personal coach has been helpful to gain tools and perspectives to approach life and my business with more positivity, openness, and creativity. Grounding my work in my life's intentions and standards of integrity has been super helpful.”
Bekah Olstad, Community Herbalist + Consultant, Oakland, CA
This is not for you if:
"I felt so thankful to have the supportive and calm presence that Nimble Roots coaching offered to continuously be a safe place to land, regroup and start again- no matter what I was facing. I left sessions feeling empowered, better about myself, and ready to work through the issue at hand with a little more self-compassion."
Ricky, Queer Mobilization Fund Director, Durham, NC
“What I appreciated most was Slam's ability to create a space where I was able to observe my stopping point, gain clarity on "my why" and then take a small step toward my goal. Slam! creates a community grounded in joy with support along the way."
Cyndi Otteson, Leadership Coach
"Slam guided us to our next steps as individuals. More importantly, Slam skillfully and compassionately directed our group to support one another, creating a community of camaraderie and support. It was wonderful to feel simultaneously held and in my own power. For anyone looking to move forward with an adept coach, I can highly recommend Slam."
Dr. Angela Santavicca, Easy To Be You, LLC
Let’s get real.
I have a colleague who sells high level packages (15k+). He talks about the two options you have for getting across the country - you can take a unicycle or a jet plane. You can see the silliness of deciding to take a unicycle when you could take a Jet Plane, and of course, he is selling a jet plane.
I am selling a bike tour with friends. It is not a journey that is for everyone, and it will take time, effort, and you at the helm. And because it is supported, it just might be a little easier, more fun, and result in an amazing adventure. Like any good trip, you will build skills, practices, and relationships that will support your future journeys (and businesses) beyond what you could have ever expected.
I offer a sliding scale of $300-500 USD/month.
The program runs for 3 months so you can also say it is a sliding scale of $900-1,500USD.
You can pay upfront or by-the-month.
What will support you to make a truly meaningful investment in YOU and your business?
I invite you to choose an amount that is a stretch but not a hardship.
The practice starts now - what would be the appropriate amount of challenge to be wildly successful here?

A little perk…
I will be curating this group so that all members are at a very similar stage of business. If you are very new to business, or have
employees and are steering a larger ship, you might be at a stage where 1-1 coaching might be more effective.

If you are like me, your business is a part of your identity and a part of how you want to contribute to something bigger than you.
It is really special to connect with others in a similar moment in their journey, and I think you might really like this part of the adventure.
