I figured it out one failure at a time, so you don’t have to.

After I founded an organization back in 2012, I immediately googled, “How to be an Executive Director” thinking the answer could be that simple.

It’s not.

Small Shop Strategies was created because let’s face it — running a small shop is hard.

Your to-do list is never ending. You have to prioritize your priorities. You feel a little more behind every day. And, let’s not even talk about all the paperwork.

You need more time and are looking to fin balance without something else going by the wayside. 

I get it.

IF YOU ARE ready To:

  • have more time in your day

  • be less stressed

  • focus on priorities and not fire drills

  • find balance between work + life

  • be passionate about your work again

Then you’re in the right place.

What’s next on your to-do list?

I’m a noodler and doodler, dog mom and succulent killer + I’ve never met a coffee mug that didn’t spark joy in my heart.

I started Small Shop Strategies because being in a small shop is stupid hard. I founded an organization and immediately googled, “How to be an Executive Director.”

You think I’m joking. I’m not.

It took me years of getting it wrong, but I found simple strategies that transformed how I worked and lived. Head over to my blog for quick ideas + inspiration, find a mastermind class to steal my step-by-step process, or follow me on Instagram to see my dogs!
