Does this sound familiar?

...You are constantly consuming business content via books, podcasts, internet and magazines. You dream of becoming the next big entrepreneur but have no clue how.

...You have no industry connections. You live in a small town and you have no idea how to get your foot in the door if you aren’t BFFs with other successful entrepreneurs.

...You didn’t go to business school but you still yearn to launch your own company.

...You’re a leader, not a follower.

The truth?

What you need isn't about your relationships. As a small town girl from Pennsylvania who knew no one and didn't go to business school, I sold my business in 5 years...

...and so can YOU.

Wondering if you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur? Everyone starts somewhere…

  • I quit my job with $10,000 in my bank account to live on and start a business. In 3 months, I turned a profit, and within 5 years was generating over 1 MILLION dollars in yearly revenue!
  • I grew up in a small town in rural Pennsylvania with absolutely ZERO connections to the fashion & beauty industry (the closest mall was 2 hours away!) but I always had the dream to move to Los Angeles and the hustle to break into the industry
  • Jana Kramer came from small town Michigan and took the plunge to pursue her dreams. Now her music has been streamed hundreds of millions of times on Spotify and topped country music charts.
  • FabFitFun, co-founded by Katie Rosen Kitchens, went from 2,000 subscribers in 2010 to over 1 million subscribers today
  • Elyse Walker opened her first store in the Pacific Palisades in 1999. Her store has since quadrupled in size, and now has the towne by elyse walker and FWRD by Elyse Walker brands under her as well.
  • Curie founder Sarah Moret started the company with just $12K from her own savings
