You’ve got a passion for fashion, for helping people get dressed, and making their wardrobes look as good as them. But does the business side of things just get you down?
As a one-person show, you may be lonely, lost, or have no idea if what you’re doing is even working - and worse, no one to ask.
Truth is - you aren’t equipped to run a business as a personal stylist.
Your styling program taught you how to take body measurements, clean out a closet, and shop, but it didn’t teach you how to think and act like a business owner.
The Founders Club teaches personal stylists how to become the business owner and CEOs you know you're destined to be.
I don’t care if you are an aspiring, part-time, or full-time personal stylist - you’ve had at least one of these thoughts:
You probably enrolled in an online course but then you realized you’re not getting the support you wanted or even basic answers to your questions.
Maybe you did a training that was GREAT, but it was short lived and now that you’re a few months or years into your business you’re stuck - you still need support and accountability but don’t want to spend thousands to hire a coach - even though you know you’d THRIVE if you had one.
If you’re ready to make a decision to commit to yourself AND your business - to become the best damn personal stylist AND CEO that you can be - then get ready to do things differently. Get ready to become a founder.
When you join The Founders Club, you get the Biz Bootcamp e-course that walks you through an ENTIRE framework, step-by-step, for setting your business up for success - no more second guessing your niche, services, and pricing structure OR wondering just what the hell taxes and business structure have to do with anything (LLC what?). We go WAY behind designing business cards (because let’s face it - biz cards do not get you clients - great services and experiences do).
We only open the doors a few times a year - if you’ve been on the fence about joining, NOW is the time. Nervous? Feel like you want to throw up? Good. It means you’re experiencing a shift - a shift from stylist to CEO. It should feel uncomfortable because you’re about to embark on a journey that will change your business - and you - forever.
If you’re ready to go from hobby to full time and stop trying to figure it all out on your own then you’ve only got one option.
Could you continue doing things like you’re doing them now? Sure. But ask yourself: do you like where your business is RIGHT NOW? If you continue to do what you’re doing, you’ll continue to get the SAME results. In order to get DIFFERENT results, you have to do something different. Could you YouTube or Google your way to success? Probably. But how long would that take you?
Could you piecemeal together trainings from other places? Absolutely. But there’s a reason why The Founders Club was created. There’s a reason why DOZENS of personal stylists have already joined and are already seeing success. Because it’s different and gives you exactly what you need and none of what you don’t.

Just like you, I loved helping women get dressed - seeing their physical wardrobe transform their inner spirit and confidence was SO fun. I was good at what I did and loved it! I got stylist training. I worked with friends and family, but I was stalled out. I was taught to think like a stylist, not a CEO and it hurt my business.
It wasn’t until I started receiving mentoring and paid thousands (worth it, but THOUSANDS) for coaching and more courses, that I started to see the shift in my business, clients, and income. I didn’t know ANYTHING about business - I didn’t even know how to track my income much less write a client agreement, protect myself legally, or even how a shopping session could actually work.
But I also know the isane feeling of going full time in my business. The feeling of success, admiration, and “I did it.” I also know the feeling of NOT having a steady client base, wondering how I would pay my mortgage and feed my cats. More coaches, more courses helped. But most importantly - I shifted my thinking from stylist to CEO.
Now it's my mission to help you.
The Founders Club is what I wished I had when I was starting out so many years ago: a template, a framework and ongoing coaching + mentorship and support. It’s your next step, your secret weapon, created just for you so that you can kill it in your business, design a life you love, and turn your hobby into a sustainable BUSINESS that gives you freedom.
To all my CEO’s!
