Our clients examine their business, who they serve, the products and services they offer, company and personal objectives, and the competition; we explore the landscape of today's market to create an action plan to put the business in front of their ideal clients.
We work with them or we do if for them. We also help to brand businesses or projects. One of the big ones, an adult community in Kelowna, BC. From property naming, to logo, selecting the street names, home names, colours, writing content for the website and all marketing materials. That was a fun - full 360 degree project.

Shauna Madsen – Creative Director of all things Business
For me, self employment is a lifestyle; it is not a job, nor is it a career. A lot of cool things have happened in 30 years of steering my own ship. I have started seven businesses since 1988. For each of those, I began with a blank canvas, researched every area, identified a need, developed processes, and procedures, set systems in place, and created products and services to sell. My mentor calls me a developer & initiator. My coach calls me "Jill of all trades and a master of many". I love my mentor and my coach.
I am driven by helping entrepreneurs grow, learn, explore and discover what sets them apart.
