It’s all possible with 1:1 Coaching

Whenever I hit a bump in the road with my side hustle goals (and I have a lot of them!) I call on Kari Roberts. Kari has connected me to so many resources on branding and marketing. She’s helped me navigate tough negotiations and all kinds of decisions both big and small. She recommends the best biz podcasts and articles. If you’re in need of business help, be sure to look into her!

Here’s why I do this work.

I know what it's like to have a full time job, family responsibilities and struggle with time management.

I know what it's like to feel like I am missing out of important weekend events because I feel like I am always working IN or ON my business.

I know what it's like to feel like you don't fit in in the creative space because everyone else can work their business full time and you can't because you have a full time job.

And I also know what it’s like to:

Work with dream clients over and over again.

Go on vacation, have my systems work for me, and come home with 2 booked clients.

Hit my revenue goals, month after month.

Block out weekends so that I have time for family and it not hurt my bottom line.

Have people notice my successful business and comment on my growth.


Now, it’s your turn!

Not to feel like everyone else's business is growing so much faster than yours.

To be able to bring on a team member during the busy seasons.

To miss networking events during the day, and not feel like you are out of the loop.

To network with intention and to gain ideal clients from vendor referrals.

To be able to manage clients without the overwhelm and still grow a side business.

Have a client ask how to book you before discussing fees.

Charge what you are worth with confidence.

Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! We can chat about the payments and agree on a payment plan that works for you.

Do you offer refunds?
Do to the nature of coaching, all payments are non-refundable. Private coaching is a big commitment of energy from myself and my client and that is something that a price tag cannot be put on.Each client will receive specialized care, concern and coaching for her individual needs and for that reason, all sales are final.

When will the calls take place?
After we have our consultation call, and we agree that we are the perfect fit for each other, we will then go through the booking process. After contract is signed and retainer fee is paid, we will schedule out all of your allotted calls. If you cannot keep your call for what ever reason, a 24 hour notice is requested and expected.

Hi Friend!

When I first decided to be a bridal makeup artist I spent a great deal of time honing my skills - as an artist and business woman. I was trying to be an exact replica of my mentor at that time. I didn't take into account that she had worked in the industry over 15 years, or the fact that she worked her business full time. All I saw was success and I knew I wanted it.

Trying to be like her did not fit me well. It was like trying to fit a round peg in a square hole. And the more it didn't work the more I forced it. About 4 years into my bridal makeup business I realized "I am not happy."

  • I'm on the computer ALL the time.

  • My husband is frustrated and feels he is playing second fiddle in my life.

  • I feel like I am spending my time with clients I don't want to work with.

  • My dog hadn't gotten a walk from me in who knows how long.

  • When was the last time I read a book or went to the movies? 

  • We aren't even gonna talk about how often I was working out or cooking.

Something had to change.

I realized I couldn't continue like this. But I had no idea how to make the change. I realized when I wanted to start my business I invested in a mentor - and I started my business. When I wanted to become a better artist I invested in an artist coach. My skills improved so much I felt comfortable posting my pictures without editing them first. And now I wanted to have balance in my life - I needed a coach to show me how.

Investing in a 6 month program that helped me learn how to place systems in my business so I wasn't working all the time was HUGE. I also learned how to find and speak to my ideal clients. I was showing my value and charging for it.

That was almost 3 years ago. Now I take a limited amount of bridal clients, so I have plenty of time with my family (and myself) on the weekend and evenings. I am very happy in my life and I don't feel like I am stretched too far.

If you would like me to help you overcome similar struggles, apply below. I am here to help and support others so they can spend their time on what really matters in life.

Big hugs,
