Stuck on what to do next and on how to even get started. How do I make money from my ideas? Where do I find my customers? How do I put together my first budget?
The truth is building a business doesn’t have to be overwhelming to get to the rewarding and fun part.
With direction, guidance, and the right kind of support, you will be able to cut through the confusion and get the clarity and confidence you need to launch a business you love.
Introducing the Be Your Own Boss Program…
The Boss Program brings you 12 weeks of ONLINE programming that you can pick and choose or purchase as a package that will help you get inspired, refine your idea or passion, and turn it into a business. 
Walk away with a solid business idea and clear next steps to get it off the ground. You’ll master pricing, building a business budget, selling online, and how to find your customers and turn them into your biggest champions.
We know you're busy, so we're excited to offer a pick and choose option so you can attend the workshops that are relevant to you, OR purchase an All-Access Pass so you can take in all the content of this program!
