running your own business can feel a lot like being lost in a maze+
Some days we feel like we’re banging our head against the proverbial brick wall. Treading water. Building a house in quicksand. Feel familiar?
Other days our business feels like a train we’re running behind, desperately trying to catch up.
Or maybe there’s a rocket pack strapped to our back and the business is soaring, but there’s a voice in your head reminding you that you must build the proper foundation beneath this success and create mindful systems in order to sustain it.
I’ve been a handmade product designer for fifteen years and I can say – without a drop of shame- that I’ve felt all of the above… sometimes all in a single week. Entrepreneurship is like funny like that.
The brand owners I work alongside are craving clarity. Sage wisdom. Actionable advice. Connections to resources that help them tackle their “to do” list, and advice on where to focus next. Each year, I enjoy an opportunity to help makers and product designers from all over the world build smarter, more successful brands and I’d love to do the same for you.
I love working one-on-one with creative entrepreneurs because it provides an opportunity to move your business forward by quantum leaps in a deliciously short burst of time.
If you feel like Moses wandering around the entrepreneurial desert, imagine how helpful it will be to have a direct line to a successful entrepreneur who has blazed the trail before you and is willing to share openly and honestly the knowledge gathered along the way.
NAVIGATE YOUR BUSINESS WITH GREATER EASE BY TAPPING INTO A SEASONED MENTOR+
When I launched my product-based brand in 2003, I was flying blind. I was fueled by passion and steadied by mountains of resolve, but the journey was intensely lonely and far more challenging than it needed to be. While I certainly wasn’t the first woman to blaze the entrepreneurial path, I had no way of tapping the wisdom of the lineage that preceded me.
The adventure of starting my own business was exhilarating, and I enjoyed success in so many areas, but I also missed important opportunities. Fumbled key decisions. Made silly mistakes that I knew others must have made too, but I didn’t have the benefit of their wisdom, perspective, and experience. I craved a sage voice, an unbiased perspective, another set of eyes, and a no-nonsense business strategist who could identify the pitfalls and then help me leap right over them
I didn’t have access to that kind of mentorship opportunity, so I created it.
No-Nonsense Strategy Uniquely Tailored To Your Brand+
Private strategy sessions enable me to jump into the ring (ice water, snacks, and Motrin in hand) to fortify you during the entrepreneurial fight. I offer a sharp intellect, a wealth of experience, and a strategic perspective through which we analyze the path before you. I wipe the sweat from your brow, give it to you straight, and work with you to create a blueprint for action that gets your brand through to the next step.
Since 2012, I’ve had the opportunity to consult with hundreds of creative entrepreneurs and some incredible moguls-in-the-making: apothecary brands, stationers, jewelers, ceramicists, houseware, apparel, and accessory designers and more. Our journeys are far more similar than you might imagine!
Through hundreds of hours of private coaching, I’ve honed in on specific patterns, common fumbles, and key strategies that are universal among emerging creative brands. I share that wealth of experience in an intimate, one-on-one meeting that’s one part heart and two parts hustle.
My strategy sessions are uniquely tailored to your business and individually designed to help navigate the path immediately before you.
discover how we can make some business magic together+
Reserve a private strategy session and a member of the Lucky Break Client Concierge team will take the baton from there! We’ll be in touch shortly via email with two things:
1. A link to preview my consulting calendar so that you can select a time that works best for you.
2. An online form that collects specific information about your brand so I can begin studying and strategizing. These questions are designed to deliver insightful epiphanies for you and laser focus for me. This process ensures that we make the most of the experience.
I roll up my sleeves to review your website and the information provided in advance of our session so that we can hit the ground running during our time together.
Please note that I typically consult between the hours of 10am and 2pm EST Monday through Friday. I also have availability on select evenings and weekends.
Each Private Strategy Session includes:
- Sixty solid minutes of mind-melding and brainstorming via phone.
- A recording of that session so you can relax and enjoy the call without worrying about taking notes. If you prefer that the event not be recorded, just let us know.
- A summary of recommendations and action items, along with links to any resources shared during our call.
I’m sworn to secrecy during private consultations, so please know that you’re in the circle of trust and rest assured that all information shared is held in the strictest of confidence. There’s no shame and no judgment at Lucky Break… the more transparent you are, the more I can help!
