When you start a business, you’ve got plans. Capital P — PLANS — complete with big dreams and a vision for how that’s all going to happen.
And for a while, things are rockin’ and rollin’ as you take steps to get where you want to go. Then, the unexpected happens. Growth slows, and you’re not sure why what you’ve always done isn’t working anymore.
So, you start trying things. You hire an assistant, maybe a marketing team, add in a web developer… Or maybe you try doing it all and managing everyone. You try everything you can think of, and you’re still seriously S-T-U-C-K.
Why? The truth is that as you try to push through to the next phase in your business, there’s one thing that hasn’t changed — YOU.
To get different results, you can’t do what you’ve always done.
Now’s the time for you to do things differently, and step into your role as CEO. (Hint: that E doesn’t stand for “everything”!)
I specialize in helping business owners take things to the next level. As a consultant, I help you formulate a strategy and then execute a plan for all the not-so-sexy things like setting focused goals, building a team, and creating systems. You’ll finally get out of your way, and be the CEO you’re meant to be.
And, best of all, I thrive on the things you find tedious and stressful.
Now, I take those same planning and organizational skills and apply them to your business. For the last 10 years, I’ve been working behind-the-scenes in small and online businesses, and I’m all too familiar with the challenges of scaling beyond a certain point.
As a consultant, I help uncover what’s holding you back in your business and set you up to get big results.
- Taking my clients to the million and the multi-million dollar mark and beyond.
- Helping even more clients go from under the $100k mark to making high six figures per year.
- Hiring and building high-performance teams that stay together for years.
- Streamlining operations to save time, money, and sanity.
Add my team to the mix and not only do we work with you on the strategy but we’re here to support the implementation phases as well. We do some of our best work when the plan is in place and it’s time to take action and get things done.
How we can help you:
If your business is in growth mode and you need to build a rock solid foundation, we can help.
We work with a select number of businesses each year to provide hands-on strategy, marketing, operations and team support.

Our Secret Agents
We all have those times when you need a developer, an analytics guys, an ads expert, you know… a fixer. We have a great team of resources to pull in as needed, we call them our secret agents and they can be yours too.
Prior to working with Amber, I had been struggling with managing my team.
Either I was constantly communicating with and double-checking things or I was putting out fires from managers who weren’t fully qualified for the position. Both cases were exhausting, costly, and time consuming — preventing me from doing my real work as CEO, teacher, and author.
With Amber onboard, I finally have a strong, qualified team in place (something I’ve been working towards for many years) and I feel a greater ease and wellbeing in my day-to-day life, so that I can be more inspired and creative with my writing and teaching, since I’m not the one handling all the minute details of the business.
