I'm Brette and that's the question I asked myself one afternoon while I was sitting at my desk in my 9-5 job.
That was the moment I decided to take the plunge, quit my job, and start off on my own. I'll be honest - it was equally exciting and terrifying. Since then, I've spent the last couple of years serving other entrepreneurs (like you!) and helping them launch and grow their own businesses and side hustles. Through these experiences, I realized my true passion:

Let me tell you from experience, it’s not even close to true. There’s no straight line to success. There are websites to build, break, and rebuild (just me?) Pricing to set. Clients to land. Not to mention trying to figure out accounting and taxes.
I don’t have all of the answers. Not even close! No one does. What I DO have is the framework for success, questions to consider, and tips and tricks that have worked for me and my clients. Everything else is up to you. But you’re not in it alone.
Maybe you have an idea but just can’t seem to get started. Maybe you’ve started and stopped so many times you have whiplash. Maybe you have a problem with authority and just want to work for yourself but aren’t sure yet what that looks like (also just me?)
Wherever you are, I’m glad you’re here. And I think I can help. The course is a great resource if you want to put your plans into overdrive and start building a business that will ultimately lead to the lifestyle you’re dreaming about. Because that’s what it’s ultimately about, right?
You have everything planned out perfectly, but somehow there’s no time left over to execute.
You are paralyzed by the idea of launching without everything being perfect. Spoiler alert: Nothing is ever perfect.

I’m a coach, educator, and marketer. A believer in dreams. Big dreams. Huge dreams that equally scare and energize you at the same time. Lover of entrepreneurship, sports, and all things Clemson University.
I created my first business plan in elementary school. Ever since then, I’ve been obsessed with building businesses, brands, and helping people surpass even their own expectations. Most days you can find me typing away on my couch or at my desk, snuggling with my dog, and working tirelessly to help my clients achieve their goals. I’m a business coach, marketing consultant, author, and educator — and I am always on the lookout for the next challenge. I’m an avid sports fan, a chocolate connoisseur, and a terrible cook.
This course is for side hustlers and entrepreneurs not millionaires and heiresses. I know first hand how tough it can be to budget for a small business, so I also know that any investment is a big one. That’s why I created this course to be do-able for anyone. No matter where they are in their business (and financial) journey. Take a little bit of the pressure off by spreading your payments out over 5 months – but still get full access today!
Perfect for someone who is always looking for the best value, the upfront payment option is about a hundred bucks cheaper than the monthly payment plan. Imagine what you could do with that extra $100. Boost your Facebook Ads. Buy new equipment. Pay off your credit card a little faster. Splurge on a spa day for yourself once your business launches. Whatever you decide, you’ll know you got the best value out there.
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course – you decide when you start and when you finish.
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like – across any and all devices you own.
I built this course for myself, three years ago. In all seriousness, it’s perfect for creative entrepreneurs, coaches, makers, artists, and dreamers. People who want to launch their business and aren’t sure where to start. People who launched ages ago and are feeling stuck. This course is for hustlers. Business builders. People who would rather work 80 hours a week for themselves so they don’t have to work 40 hours for someone else.
Entrepreneurs who already have larger companies or teams. If you’ve grown your company to that point, you likely need more customized marketing consulting. (We can chat about that separately.) Hobbyists and Personal Bloggers. If you blog or create just for fun, but don’t really care about becoming profitable or growing your business, this course probably isn’t the best fit. (but send me a link so I can check you out!)
Whether you’re a blogger, photographer, coach, crafter, or countless other professions, there is someone in your industry that is teaching people how to grow their businesses. And they’re often successful! The challenge with that model is that you only get a fraction of the creativity and business expertise that you might by working with creatives and entrepreneurs across all industries. Aren’t you looking to differentiate yourself from everyone else in your industry? So, why would you market and build your business to look just like everyone else? An added bonus is that you often find partnerships with other entrepreneurs who can expose you to their audience when working with people who wouldn’t be competitors of yours. That’s what this community is about.
Absolutely. I feel so strongly about the content in this course that if you go finish the course, implement my strategies, and still aren’t seeing results, we’ll fix it. Just email me within 2 months of your purchase date for a full refund and I’ll make it right.
Yep. You absolutely can. But here’s the thing. You’re going to find a LOT of wrong information first. You’re going to waste a LOT of hours sifting through and trying strategies that don’t work before you get to the ones that do. And in that time that you waste, you could be making money. In that time, you could be taking your side biz full time. In that time, you could be sharing your passion with the world. What you can’t find online is my expertise in APPLYING these strategies to your business. And I have a lot of experience in that department.
If there is one thing I understand the most, it’s budget limitations. When I was getting started, I counted every penny I had and needed to make the most of it. The funny thing is that I spent my entire corporate career teaching entrepreneurs that they had to invest in themselves and invest in their businesses to see them grow. I learned firsthand how true that is. For the first few months, I spent nearly nothing on my business. And guess what? Nothing happened. Then, I started investing in my business and that’s when I started to see the clients come in. When I look back, the money I lost by not taking real action in the first few months is about 6X what I ultimately invested during my whole first year. Let me tell you, that stings.
"Brette was so easy to work with and extremely knowledgeable in the world of marketing. She taught me a lot about how to grow your business through content marketing. She pushed me outside of my comfort zone frequently and to be honest, I am glad she did! That is where the magic happens. I highly recommend Brette to help any business owner who wants to grow their business."
