Hello startup founders!

I love working with early stage companies on their business planning and funding strategy. We all need a little help navigating through financing options and getting investor ready. And we need to prioritize our health to get us to success.

Get real. Get healthy. Get funded!

Sound familiar?

  • I have launched my startup and know I need to raise money, but don’t know where to start.
  • I am confident in my product/service and just need the right business and financial tools to take it to the next level.
  • I have a general sense of capital sources like debt, equity, and recently crowdfunding, but am not sure which is right for my business.
  • I don’t have a financial plan and am not sure how much money I need to move my company forward.
  • I need a Business Overview and Pitch Deck but don’t know how to create them.
  • I don’t know how to stay focused and centered and making sure I am aligned with potential investors.

If this resonates with you, don’t stress! I provide a unique look at the available sources of capital for your type of business, the tools to raise this capital, the money fears that might be holding you back, and how mindfulness is a key factor in attracting investors.

My background as a capital markets expert and unique knowledge of the private and public financing options comes from over a decade advising small cap companies on going public and, more recently, consulting with growth companies (particularly women entrepreneurs) on their business planning and investor readiness.

Besides my professional and academic business training, I am also schooled in entrepreneurial hard knocks as my first startup – Stiletto Dash, a business travel wellness company – didn’t work out.

As I began to raise money for my venture, I was overwhelmed by the capital raising process and was also confronted with surprising money fears. I realized there wasn’t a resource or guide to help me get the emotional and practical tools I needed to be successful.

So I decided to create it and "Get real. Get healthy. Get funded!" was born!
