"I was told my business was bankrupt and that I should quit."


Meet Amy

AFTER WORKING WITH SHANNA :

Doubled pricing and booked more ideal clients

Maintains 60% profit on each and every job

Fully supports her family of four on her income alone

01

case study

Amy was a single mom with three boys. Even after 5+years in business she had never taken a consistent paycheck and was living in her mom's basement wondering : Can floral design really support my family?

Today Amy has completely turned her business around. She has full time staff and a studio outside her home.  And oh yea ... she bought a house for her and her boys (with a pool!).

"I was working my a** off painting all the time without anything to show for it."


Meet Britt

AFTER WORKING WITH SHANNA :

Doubled her prices

Hired studio help

Quit her part-time jobs and paints full time

02

case study

While working three part-time jobs to try to make it as an artist, Britt finally gave herself an ultimatum. She would give herself a year and if it didn't turn around she would quit and get a job at Starbucks.

Today Britt spends many days painting without ever opening her computer. She is freed up to create and focus on building her brand knowing her products are priced right and her team is taking care of customers.

"I was at my last resort."


Meet Lindsay

AFTER THE BLUEPRINT MODEL :

Tripled her prices 

Works less while making more $$

Finally working with her ideal clients

03

case study

As a a brand new mom, Lindsay was at her last resort. She didn't have time to take care of what fed her soul (her creative business) while also taking care of her family. 

Within months, Lindsay had surpassed her 2017 and 2018 sales goal. She now feels she is able to run her business thoughtfully instead of just playing catchup all the time. Most importantly, her new systems allow her to be a present mom while being proud of her work.
