Have we met? My name is Lela, and I've been in the trenches as a product-based entrepreneur since 2003. My business journey has been quite the adventure, and I've used that wealth of experience and my diploma from the School of Hard Knocks to empower other artisans and product designers. I once had the privilege of helping thousands of creative brand owners navigate product pricing, brand development, and wholesale strategy. Seasons change + mindsets shift, so I don't do this kind of work anymore. But legacy clients can still access previously reserved classes and Price-O-Matic software via this site. Take good care, kittens!Need a dance break?
Press & Praise
Lela is my hero in so many ways that it's hard to capture how she's influenced Osmia. I have found Lucky Break to be a great resource and an amazing cheerleader for our brand. Lela can look at any business or situation, assess it quickly and intuitively, and give excellent advice to guide your next steps.

I recently made my second appearance on HSN and it looks like they are going to give me my own 20-minute show. Once again, I want to thank you for opening my heart and mind to branding and for the loving and incredible work you do.
Master Peace Body Therapy: Maryland
After hiring a handful of specialized consultants, it only took one strategy session with Lela to know that she's the only person I need in my corner! I was impressed with her ability to drill down on the things I need to change and provide clear answers on how to get it done quickly, beautifully, and in line with my brand.

In business, so much is linear- you have a vision of where you want to be, but no idea of how to get there. Lela leads you so that all you have to do is take one baby step at a time. I have taken several of Lela’s workshops, and each one is full of golden nuggets that save a ton of time and money.

Lela Barker is a whip-smart lady boss with some seriously sage advice who has helped me deal with a number of business hurdles over the years. Whatever issue you're dealing with in your business (scaling, branding, pricing, wholesale) Lucky Break can help.
Etta + Billie: California
Lela's experience running her own empire lends extra strength to her mentoring. It seems that there's no sticky business situation she hasn't dealt with - and she's willing to share the lessons learned so that you can avoid those situations. There are a lot of business mentors out there, but few are as well suited to guide artisan brands.
I’ve known Lela Barker as a businessperson for over a decade. Learning from her is always exciting, interesting and useful. You won’t be disappointed and you won’t be bored.
