There are so many tools out there to start a successful business from scratch yourself, without having to hire out. I’m thrilled to share my knowledge and tools to help you grow your business by leaps and bounds.

"THIS COURSE TOUCHED ON EVERYTHING THAT I COULD POSSIBLY NEED TO KNOW."
Learn the building blocks for a STRONG FOUNDATION from the ground up every step of the way - whether you are just starting out or running an existing business already.
I get asked often how to successfully start a business on a shoestring and make it work, how to build a business from scratch and how to balance everything. There is no short answer. It’s a lot of work - but with the right direction you can go into it confidently, one step at a time and make it happen.
In this course, I offer guidance and advice on how to actually make a living by starting and running a small business from scratch - without requiring a lot of outside professionals. With a strong foundation and doing things right from the start, and by learning the tools to do these things yourself… YOU CAN DO IT!
Learn how to share, grow and promote your business on social media and develop a strong web presence that tells the story of your business and brand.
Social Media is one of the most powerful tools to build your small business - and it won't cost you anything more than your time and commitment. It’s powerful and effective if you know how to share your content creatively and use the algorithm in your favor.
There are a lot of different platforms out there, but this course focuses mainly on using Instagram - a powerful platform to share your story and sell your product or service to grow your business. Instagram is the number one social channel right now for selling a product or service.
This course includes everything from getting your business account started, how to grow, tools to help your content, what to post, what to avoid and how to use this platform to grow your business and create income.
Learn how to sell and ship products and perishables to your customers.
Shipping opens up unlimited avenues to sell your product- it is not easy, but it can be done. I have spent the last five years researching and testing the best products, insulation, packaging, shipping services, third party automations and carrier relationships and finally I am confident shipping perishables (the most difficult kind of product to ship!) from our small ranch to customers all over the country efficiently and affordably.
In this course, I share all of these tips, tricks, sources and relationships with you to shortcut the process and have you shipping in no time! It’s not easy to navigate but with these tools… YOU CAN DO IT.
