Are you a busy creative retailer, wondering which way to turn for a little help?

Do you have questions about running your creative  business, your bricks and mortar or booth space?
Are you thinking about opening a brick and mortar? Do you have questions about where to even start? About managing your time? What to focus on? How to grow your business? How to make money in this business? How to stay creative?

If so, let’s talk.

 I’ve been working with some of the leading creative business innovators, paint manufacturers, and everyday mom and pop retailers all over North America and have owned my own businesses along with my husband for the last 20 years. I’ve recently franchised my creative paint store and boy do I get it! I know how stressful and chaotic things can get, and that you just wish you had someone to reach out and chat with. I wish I had someone to help me when I was “knee deep” in.


If you need a hand, please reach out.

I’d love to help.

A little about me…


My goal is to mentor other creatives by inspiring them to

succeed and grow with confidence.

We have recently franchised our Front Porch Mercantile stores and our ongoing business growth means I can bring a fresh business perspective to your business. My passion is to mentor other creatives by inspiring them to succeed and grow with confidence.

I work one on one with paint retailers, offer group coaching and business boot camps!

I am also available for PUBLIC SPEAKING or PRIVATE TRAINING on paint, training your trainers, customer service training, advanced paint techniques, retail sales, and social media for creative retail business. We can chat about other topics as required.  Want to know a little more about me? You can read more here.
