I want to help you bridge the gap between creativity and business.

I spent hours teaching myself web design and business until the money I made from freelancing on nights and weekends equaled the salary I made on my 9 – 5 job. I wanted to continue to grow my freelancing business but I knew I needed to learn “what I didn’t know” about business and this lead me to pursue my master’s in business administration.

The advantage of having my own business while getting my MBA allowed me to immediately apply everything I was learning at the time. I was able to translate everything I learned about business for the needs of a freelancer or solopreneur.
