I'm a trauma informed, Huamn First © business mentor for creatives, and misfits who are craving business done their way.
I use a whole human approach to business.
I like to look at clients as a whole, as they are. Not simply through the lens of 'what's working in their business or not', because that doesn't tell the whole truth.
We must look beyond the moving parts of business, and begin to look at the person who's running it. So we can take mindful strategy and action when designing a business that moves in accordance with each business owners personality, unique leadership style, mental health, accessibility humanity, and voice.
I'm headed into my 10th year of business this April, and in this time, I've gone from a single mom, sleeping on floors, and living off food pantry boxes—to a seven figure business.
This doesn't mean much, the money part—I hate when people lead with that, as if it means much? Okay, so you made money.
I care more about the how.
Which is why I'm in business to begin with.
As a queer woman, and someone who didn't fit well into the popular IG crowd, no lines of credit, or family money to fall back on— I realized very early on in business that I was either going to have to sell myself out in some kind of way to grow my business, or find another way.
So I made it my life's work to help entrepreneurs grow their business sustainably, by being themselves.
And it worked.
And not simply through the advice "yay, be yourself". But in the entrepreneur having the tools, and resources needed to access their internal safety and be able to truly hold themselves in their humanity.
I work with sex educators, therapists, life coaches, doctors, designers, astrologists, business coaches, and other service based online providers—and I've been able to help thousands sell out their offers organically.
Without a big following, pretty IG accounts, or old white dude marketing tactics.
I would love to help you do the same.
As a trauma informed business coach, it's important for me to name my linage and education in this space:
- Mentorship and consultation under Alyssa Pressman LCSW, Trauma Trained Therapist and Certified Coach
- Katie Kurtz: CULTIVATE training
- Janina Fisher Complex Trauma Training
Sara is my wife, and she's also the in-house leadership coach for all my 1:1 clients, and the co-founder of The League with me.
She has her masters in leadership. When working with a new 1:1 client, she helps them identify their unique leadership style, and what this means for how they sell, market, create, and work with their clients.
What we value:
We believe wholehearted brands, and businesses move in action from their core compass, not a list of values that sound nice. We believe in the wholeness of each individual business is a voice that leads from truth, inclusion, and the belief that wholeness isn't rooted in making others comfortable in the stretch of greater change.
At the heart of a successful business, is someone who is willing to be seen, have their voice heard, and not perform 'pretty'. We believe play in business allows the fluidity of your humanness to remain at the forefront of a sustainable business you.
Black Lives And...
We believe Black lives matter, queer people should be able to get married, and that business IS poltical. We value all bodies, disabled, fat, Black, NBIPOC, queer, and trans.
