Now offering a limited number of private consultations at $99 (reg. $199) for those looking for insightful feedback and practical tools to grow their creative brand

 

 One hour bloom sessions are geared towards any creative person with an idea they would love to launch, or for the product based small brand trying to take things to the next level... but are feeling stumped. In our one hour session I will put all of my focus on listening to your specific concerns and offer insight and tangible tools to help get you moving forward! A few queries I often hear:

  • I want to sell my art but I don't know the first thing about starting a business
  • I want to start selling wholesale but I'm so overwhelmed I’m not sure where to begin
  • I’m not feeling confident in my branding and need an outsider’s eye
  • I need to put myself out there more but I don’t feel comfortable with self-promotion
  • I want to expand and grow my craft business but I can’t figure out how to let go of the “making” part

I first launched my Etsy shop in 2011 as a handmade brand with nothing but the cash in my wallet (not exactly recommended! lol.) and the desire to work from home. After 6 years I have grown that seed of an idea into a cohesive brand with almost 200 wholesale accounts and counting, and have since outgrown working in the spare bedroom in my home. I have weathered the growing pains of building a DIY brand, and while I had no idea what I was doing or where I was going with Native Bear in the beginning, I was fueled by the possibilities of what the brand could become.

I’m proud of the resourcefulness I gained while building this DIY brand, but there have been countless times when I just wished I had someone to consult for advice. Anyone can benefit from confiding in a mentor who's “been there” before. There were many decisions I made in the beginning that ended up costing me precious time and money, and those times may have been avoided if I had just enlisted someone with a discerning eye and practical advice. With my experience and lessons learned, my goal is to bring clarity in areas where you’re feeling stuck so that you can avoid wasting time and get right to work! 

Currently booking for August, M-F, 9-3 EST

With this session you will receive:

  • One hour phone call packed full of discussion and planning
  • A recording of our conversation for your reference after our phone meeting is over
  • A follow up email including highlights of our conversation and any mentioned resources
  • A preliminary questionnaire so I can learn more about where you are in your process before we start our meeting.
  • 100% confidentiality

Once you schedule and purchase your Bloom Session below you will receive an email containing questions that will need to be answered before our session. These will help me get to know you and your brand better before we jump on the call and get right to it! 

If there's anything that I'm passionate about besides building my own brand it's helping others build theirs. I truly enjoy getting into the nitty gritty of branding, creative development, production, and logistics. Tell me what you’re struggling with and we’ll work up a plan that helps pave the way for growth while still reflecting your core values and personal goals.

Together we will come up with the next steps to help nudge your seedling idea into bloom!
