Hi there!  I'm Karissa.

I’m a Certified Small Business Coach who’s passionate about guiding entrepreneurs to successfully build their businesses without the confusion and overwhelm.

I work with talented solopreneurs who are driven to profitably serve others, make a difference in the world, and live life on their own terms.

Their passion brings them to entrepreneurship, but it alone won't get a business built. That's where our collaboration comes in and creates clarity, strategy, and momentum.

A bit more about me…

An Entrepreneur is Born
I used my 7-year-old charm to peddle gallons of lemonade outside the park, turned my school locker into a candy shop and my parent’s kitchen into a “cafe.” While my friends wanted to play “house,” I convinced them to play “store.”

By ten, I was a serial entrepreneur.  I proudly walked out of the local print shop holding mint green, clip art-laden business cards for "Karissa's Pet and House Sitting."  I had a blast and made a killing that summer. I was hooked!

All Grown Up
I sought a career that nurtured my entrepreneurial spirit. I spent over two decades working hand and hand with executives and business owners overseeing million+ dollar marketing budgets. As the Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for national companies, I oversaw:

  • brand development
  • website development
  • social media
  • budgets and projections
  • partnerships
  • competitive analysis
    • pricing models
    • staffing and training
    • anything else a marketing junkie like me could get into

    When I got the opportunity to fufill a dream of living abroad and traveling, I jumped at it.  I created a business that married my passions for coaching, marketing/business development, and serving other and began working with exclusively with entrpreneurs.
