This site is for you.
For me too, actually. I built Sketch to Shelf because I wanted to meet more artists and designers that are running small businesses. After making things, the time I most enjoy is collaborating with other creative people. Talking and scheming about design and business gets me excited; it keeps my brain moving on my own projects and pushes me in ways I cannot do on my own.
So, let’s talk.
How far along are you with your business? What is going well, and what problems are you having?
I’d like to help you with your business. And I need you to tell me what would be most helpful.
For a limited time, I’m offering free consulting calls.
We can chat about anything related to your business. Anything at all. We can talk about your brand name, your website, how to make a product, who can ship your products for you, how to sell on Amazon, why your cat wakes you up every night, or even what your favorite pizza is. As long as it’s about creativity or business, I’m here to help.
Why talk to me?
I’m a maker, just like you, and I might be a bit further along the entrepreneurial process than you. I certainly won’t have all the answers for you – I’m hardly an expert in all areas – but I can help find the solutions to your problems.
I have degrees in industrial design and small business management, and have build a successful pet products company over the last 8 years. I’ve been through every stage of building a company, and have first-hand experience in all the steps. (Hence the “Sketch to Shelf” name!)
If you’re successful, then I’m successful.
I’ve worked solo on the pet products company and when I didn’t know how to do something I had to figure it out on my own. While far from being an expert in everything related to entrepreneurship, I am pretty good overall, and if I don’t know how to do something I can figure it out.
But the real question for me and for this site is what do you need help with?
Let me help you solve your biggest business problem, and to learn how I can be helpful to other creative entrepreneurs like you.
