One-on-One Coaching and Development for Founders.


For 6 years I built Death to Stock, a Subscription business for premium media used by brands like TED, Xero and Twitter. 3 years in, the brand had done $1M in revenue and had grown to almost 400,000 subscribers as a bootstrapped business.

Then I got shingles at 26 (!).

Suddenly, I was reactive in my business instead of proactive. It’s like I became aware of how much I didn’t know, and so I started questioning myself. I started hiring consultants. I was creatively stuck, and I thought that following others or forcing things was the way out…

After 3 years of deep discovery on my relationship with my business, stress, what produces my best creative work, and how creators think (writing over 180 blog posts on the topic) I discovered that I had everything I needed all along... Duh!

All I needed to do was show up as ME, and I had covered up my best self that brought me results in my business.

If your desire is to grow your business, increase the influence of your brand, build more free time in your company or shift directions to something my enjoyable and productive, I’m here to help.

Marketing, messaging, brand influence, finding your next opportunity for growth....
