Build a brand on a bootstrapped budget. 

Early-stage startup budgets shouldn't mean skimping on the one thing that will connect you to your users, customers, clients, or funders. Don’t leave investor or user dollars on the table. Our startup packages are tailored for new ventures and include everything you need, nothing you don’t to grow, build a reliable user base, and get funded faster.

One-on-one founder coaching.

Running your own show is incredibly rewarding (in fact, we wouldn't have it any other way). But it's not always easy. 

You take care of your clients, your customers, your employees, your partners, your mentees...but who's taking care of you? How do you make sure you're meeting your goals for your business—or setting them in the first place? Who's tracking your growth against your own dreams and ambitions?

You started your company for a reason (or many). Don't let that become part of the background of your day-to-day. Work with Backbone Creative's founder to help you build your business and career in a sustainable, healthy, and ambitious way. 

Jess will help you through common pitfalls of building a small business and brand management questions and issues. She'll also help you work on your personal development to build a better business while building a better business owner. The result: a happy, healthy work environment, devoted customers, and a deeper understanding of who you are as a business owner.
