Avoid Agony & Save Your Sanity

"As a songwriter, fundraising an album on Kickstarter is a brave thing.... but in less than 15 minutes Emily Ann made me realize why consultants exist! 

She reviewed the pre-launch of my Kickstarter page, explained what worked and why, and constructively helped me rearrange, reword, and prioritize my content and layout, all the while explaining in an encouraging and clear manner.

Working with Emily Ann exceeded my expectations and beyond. She not only improved my project tenfold, but made me excited and confident before the launch. It’s been incredibly helpful to have her expertise, support, and valuable feedback!"

- Mia Rose Lynn, songwriter

Foster Growth Now to Prevent Tragic Results Later

While in the beginning stages of a new project, there are crucial decisions made which can ultimately foster the success or failure of your ideas. Working out the kinks in a safe, secure, and nurturing environment is the answer to pre-launch anxiety.

"Emily Ann helped me work out the kinks while my business was in its baby stages.

We discussed business names, branding, pricing models, and audience strategy. She has a laser-like vision of how to help develop and market your creative works for success."

- Evan Law, author

Stop Wasting Time & Money

"Emily Ann, you’re amazing! I have literally wasted thousands and thousands on other online courses which made so many promises that were not kept. I learned more truly impactful ways to improve my business in an hour with you than I have with others over the course of several months! 

You know your stuff inside and out and provide a truly customized experience with a business owner’s specific needs. I came away with ideas to tweak what I’m doing that will have a financial impact on my business. Emily Ann is easy and fun to talk to all while getting straight down to business! Mind-blowing!"

Jennifer Ballard, founder of JLN Cosmetics

  • “Bravery begins one step at a time. As it’s given the soil of courage and understanding, bravery blooms inside us and becomes large enough to walk under. I needed help to do that, and if you do too, this is the place to start. You can discover the gift hiding inside you just waiting to be uncovered. Bravery can be learned. This is a chance to discover how.”

    author & journal therapy facilitator

  • “Emily Ann has helped me tremendously when it comes to presenting my message in a very clear and concise way that my audience will understand, in a way that they like and they want to come back. I know that my brand would not be consistent throughout all the areas of my business if it was not for Emily Ann’s unique eye. I am grateful for her talents and of course our time together.”
