— Now Booking For 2023 —
Not All Agencies Are Created Equal.
Matter of fact, we intentionally do things differently, here’s how...
An Intersectional Feminist Approach
Who We Are:
In Short, We're Real Human Beings
With extensive training in a multitude of modalities and fields, we strategically integrate an array of different lenses into every component of the work we do with ALL our clients.
This is intersectional business.
We are NOT a quick-fix solution for burning businesses whose only aim is fast cash and massive profit without any concern for the impact of their actions.
Our Agency is designed to support values-aligned business owners who’ve grown as far as they can go on their own and are ready to receive a high level of support from our entire team.
Is this you?
Our Agency is best for folks who:
- Are established in their business and have proven offer(s) generating consistent client results.
- Earning AT LEAST $100k in annual business revenue OR have been working extensively in their field for a prolonged period of time and are ready to make the full transition into entrepreneurship (we may make exceptions on a case-by-case basis).
- Desire a more streamlined and automated approach for growing and are craving support on systems development and/or implementation.
- Only want to be in the creative seat of their business and want to leave the operations to a well-trusted team that knows technology like the back of their hand without having to hire in-house.
We don’t believe in doing it all for you, we believe in doing it WITH You.
INTRIGUED BY THE IDEA OF SUSTAINABLE SCALING WITH OUR TEAM?
THERE ARE Two Ways To Work With Us:
Ad Hoc Packages Based On Your Needs
Best for folks who only need minimal support and want projects completed without any consultation
Options for ad hoc services include:
- Custom Brand Kit Development
- Custom Sales Page Development
- Custom Website Development
- Custom Funnel Development (Quizzes, opt-ins, etc.)
All you have to do is let us know which of our services you’d like to purchase, fill out the inquiry form, and our team will be in touch about getting started.
Each service is sold individually, so you’ll have the option to pick and choose what you need when you need it.
Full-Service Agency & Business Consultation or Management
This is truly an all-in-one solution for folks who ONLY want to be in the creative seat of their business while you confidently rest into the support of our full staff and team to strategize, implement, and manage all of your backends for you.
If this sounds like something you’re interested in, keep reading.
The rest of this page will outline everything you need to know about working with our Full-Service Agency.
Because we value sustainability and intentionality in our company,
we ONLY work with 4 Full Service Agency Clients at a time.
This means we are incredibly particular about WHO we choose to take on and ensuring our companies are values-aligned.
Our Full-Service Agency Package is a minimum 6-month commitment and $26,000 Investment
where we meet weekly, speak daily, and become an integral part of your company’s backend managing the operations, optimizing the systems and implementing all the strategies.
That’s a lot of time, energy and trust from both you AND us. 😉
what makes the investment “worth it”?
ALL potential agency clients are *required* to book a 2-Day Virtual Intersectional Business Intensive with our team that happens over a month-long period and is an initial $6,000 investment.
This initial investment serves as your deposit for working with our agency and is applied towards the total $26,000 Investment if you decide to continue working with us.
How A Business Intensive Works
A step-by-step playbook of our process
01 Where you've been
Comprehensive Company Assessment
We kick off the initial onboarding process with a deep dive into data collection. We’ll thoroughly investigate and explore the inner workings of your company’s offers, sales processes, branding & messaging, marketing, client delivery experience, and general operations.
We’ll also ask you and your team members to track a time diary that you’ll share to help us see how time is being spent within your company and better grasp the potential scalability of your business based on actual data.
Finally, we’ll analyze this data in our custom Product Scalability Analysis™ Framework that will project estimates of your company’s scaling potential, including its owners’ operational costs, profit margins, and owners pay.
How’s that for onboarding?
All of what we’ve outlined here is done BEFORE we schedule our first of 2 meetings at which point, we move into step 2…
02 Where you're going
Exploration & Visioning
Once we’ve collected all of the data we need from you and have thoroughly reviewed it, we’ll put together our initial assessment of the company and bring it to a 3-hour deep dive meeting with you and your core team members to review together.
On this call, we’ll begin exploring what your actual vision is for yourself and your company, gathering the subjective data that often, spreadsheets just don’t provide. This will include better understanding your personal and professional goals, desires, needs and hopes for the future.
We’ll also use this time to ask more in-depth questions to help us better understand any aspects of the assessment that may have been left unclear.
We’ll wrap this meeting and our team will get to work integrating all of the information you’ve shared with us about your grand vision and orienting it towards our suggested strategies to help you scale.
03 how to get there
Roadmap For Sustainable Scaling
This is the final presentation of our onboarding process and usually takes place the following week after our team has compiled all the data and developed your long-term and short-term strategies for scaling your company.
We’ll present these strategies and the core projects suggested in a digestible timeline that you can choose to either implement on your own OR hire us to complete the projects outlined based on the custom proposal we’ll have written up for you;
Obviously, we’d love to do it for you but we know that may not always be an option for everyone so we prefer to give you the choice to stop here or keep going.
Let’s sum that up with your deliverables for JUST the Intersectional Business Intensive:
It can be hard to imagine what all of this looks like in action, especially if systems and operations aren’t your thing;
Which is why we’ve decided to provide a few examples of what you may receive at the end of your intensive.
EXAMPLE OF KEY FINDINGS DOC
This is the document we’d present to you during our FINAL call after we complete all of our assessments and data collection of your company. We’ll walk through each section in detail to ensure everything feels crystal clear.
EXAMPLE OF HIGH-LEVEL STRATEGY ROADMAP
This document you’d walk away with outlines your five short-term and five long-term strategies over the next 6-12 months, with a breakdown of each project’s KPIs for completion.
Once you receive this document, you can either take it and implement it yourself OR hire our team to do it all for you, where we’ll build an entire automated eco-system inside ClickUp.
This is more than enough for some folks, and they’re ready to take this found clarity and put it straight into action. Often, these folks have the time and mental/emotional capacity to do it all themselves.
But often, this is just the tip of the iceberg and a small appetizer of the 5-course meal that lies ahead.
If you get to the end of your Intensive and are ready for even more, You'll have your custom proposal for continuing to work with our Agency.

Time To Make Some Magic
Full-Service Agency Clients typically start with a minimum 5-month container that averages around $4,000/month based on the custom proposal and assessment of your business needs.
Please note that pricing and timeframes may very based on what the actual key finding are in your business and the level of complexity that’s required to support your desired outcome.
Here’s what you can expect inside our Full Service Agency:
- We’ll onboard you into our ClickUp client management portal and set up your custom workspace with all of your project outlines for you to easily keep track of – Don’t worry if you’re not a huge technology fan, we’ll teach you how to master the platform in minutes.
- We’ll begin your full CRM setup and/or migration from any of the software you’re currently using and rebuild it all (even better) on ScaleUP so our team can easily manage.
- We’ll have a 90-minute kick-off call to lay down the ground rules about our company policies, practices, and ways we love to communicate to ensure we’re all on the same page.
- We’ll collect all login details, brand assets and any other files needed to begin on projects.
- Each week we’ll meet for 60 minutes to go over objectives for the week, collect updates on projects, and provide consultation and guidance on anything that may be present. We’ll then take those meeting notes and delegate tasks appropriately.
- We’ll continue implementing each of the strategies agreed upon during our initial intensive and provide progress reports as we work our magic.
- Each month we’ll send a full sales and financial repot for your company so you can easily see the growth your company has had as well as assess what campaigns have performed best.
$6k Deposit To Secure Your Spot and Begin The Onboarding Process then 5 Monthly Payments of $4k
You have the option to purchase JUST the Business Intensive experience without being required to invest any further. If the BI (Business Intensive) is enough for you and you feel complete after the container, we’ll gladly off board you and hand over any documents we’ve created.
The short answer is yes. The long answer depends and is based on what we assess during your Business Intensive. If you’re someone who needs A LOT of support and will require a more complex build-out and management from our team, we estimate the total investment will be closer to $20,000 or 5 monthly payments of $4,000.
If you’re someone needing less touch maintenance and only want to take on a minimal amount of services, you can expect to invest close to $3,000 per month.
