Giving you the tools and confidence to bring your creative business to life


Running a business is tough, whatever the size. But as a small business owner, wearing all those hats, juggling all those balls without that team to offload to at the water cooler, success can seem a million miles away.

But with focus, planning and the tools to overcome the inevitable overwhelm, running a small business can be the most rewarding journey, and yes, you absolutely can make it!

Enter Beth – that’s me! Small business champion, accountability buddy, business advice hotline and all round motivator for small creative businesses and brands. Fuelled by coffee, new stationary and a passion for seeing designers and independent brands flourish and grow.



I work with designers and small independent brands who are either looking to set up and start their business journey or those looking to give themselves and their business a boost, take things to the next level or overcome challenges.

Beth’s support, guidance and advice was absolutely invaluable to the start-up of my business, without which, I don’t even think would be up and running right now!
I was recommended to Beth when I was looking for help prior to launching my business. Feeling a little bit lost and in need of some guidance, I signed up to Beth’s 4 week coaching programme, which turned out to be exactly what I needed! Beth’s well-rounded and comprehensive approach to business took me from nailing my brand and customer, to social media planning, structuring and ring-fencing my day and time, advice on various aspects of my website, which social media platforms to focus on, through to help in writing a press release and much more! ‘’

My coaching session with Beth was really quite inspiring. I came away feeling motivated to take on the world but importantly, with the tools to be able to do so! Beth is very knowledgeable and has a great manner about her that means you feel completely at ease asking the ‘stupid’ questions. She has a wealth of experience that could easily be intimidating to someone like me but you don’t feel that way at all, and you get the benefit of all that wisdom too!

I’ve been working on my art business a little over a year now. When your focus is more the art you create, rather than the business side, it can be hard to know what decisions are the right ones to make, as your heart seems to guide rather than your brain. Upon working with Beth, almost immediately she was able to identify areas to build on and develop to help make my business practice more profitable. She continues to guide and suggest little things I can do, that would never occur to me otherwise. Thank you, Beth, for all your valuable input.
