Small business mentoring

When I'm not photographing weddings, I pour my heart into mentoring creative entrepreneurs local to Chicagoland and beyond. Throughout the one-on-one mentoring experience, I help the joyful creative balance their business so that they can live their life.

"Kara is not only an amazing photographer, but she is an outstanding teacher as well. When I reached out to her about scheduling a mentoring session, she was quick to respond and super flexible! As a professional educator, her ability to teach was on point. Kara is phenomenal and so much fun to work with! I look forward to learning more from her. I highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in one on-one-mentoring."

"From the beginning to the end, the process was informational, encouraging, and easy. Kara has a mind of gold when it comes to the business world, no matter what profession you are in. She can help pinpoint your weaknesses in your business and help you overcome those struggles. She encouraged me on the things I was doing well and pushed me to go even farther."

"DO NOT HESITATE to reach out to Kara for your biz mentoring experience!! I first contacted her a few months ago and was initially nervous because I didn't know what aspects of my business I wanted/needed assistance in the most. Kara helped me EVERY step of the way and made my experience personal (and oh so helpful!) Having her encouragement and support in growing my business was so empowering and gave me the confidence I needed to rise up to the dreams and goals."

Love from Kara's mentoring clients...

It’s true that it’s part of my heart and passion to help other creatives grow in their businesses and learn how to allow their businesses to bless themselves and others… So, that’s why I truly believe (and I’m shouting it from the rooftops!) that being intentional with your office space is one of the foundational means of being able to serve your people!

That’s right, I am ALL about having you own creative space…

HAVING A CREATIVE SPACE FOR YOU AND YOUR BIZ

I’m super excited to share with you three books that I think are “must-reads” for female entrepreneurs. While I have many, many more to share with you, this is a nice starting place.

I love sharing goodies like these with other entrepreneurs and creatives! We rise by lifting others, and it’s okay to lean on each other for support, recommendations, mentoring, and more.

I’m a bag lady… So, of course, my camera bag is yet another important bag to me. I purchased this Kelly Moore Bag Kate – in February 2016 and have loved it every since! Let me just tell you that I am in LOVE with this stylish yet rugged camera bag, and I even purchased the matching backpack for my hubby. 

Let’s get to it! What’s in my bag?

Why do I need a small business mentor?

Girlfriend, are you at a point in your business where you feel like your next moves or decisions could make or break you? Do you want to grow your business while working smarter (and maybe less)? Do you find yourself playing the comparison game when you look at other female creative entrepreneurs? Are you trying to establish systems in your business? Do you struggle with work-life balance? Are you too close for comfort to feeling burned out? If you said YES to any (or many!) of these, I can help you!


About Kara + mentoring

Since starting my business in 2013, I’ve grown my business through successes and failures. Now, in my 7th year of business, I feel called to share what has helped me grow as a female creative entrepreneur, but in a one-on-one, completely personal and encouraging way. I believe business is business and that creatives can learn from each other. I’m passionate about helping other female creatives thrive in their businesses. I was at a place once, too, where I felt too close for comfort to reaching my breaking point and letting my business control every aspect of my life. Over the past seven years, I’ve grown my business by 1000% in gross revenue, and I’ve implemented systems into my business that I want to share with you! Business mentoring goes hand-in-hand with my goal of fostering community over competition. And that’s why virtual small biz mentoring is the icing on the cake!

HOW DO I FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION?

I'm so glad you asked, girlfriend! Feel free to click over to contact me, and we
can start the conversation! I'm so happy you're considering investing in one-on-one business mentoring... I can't wait to share more about the experience with you!

I'm LOCAL... do MY ONE-ON-ONE MENTORING sessions HAVE TO BE VIRTUAL?

Great question! I love working with female creatives in person AND virtually via video calls. The beauty of mentoring is that this isn't one size fits all... So if local works for you - we can absolutely do it. If you're local to Kankakee County or the Bourbonnais area, I would just LOVE to work with you in-person over coffee, cupcakes, or wine at one of my favorite local spots! Just be sure to let me know you're local when you inquire here, and we can work out all the details together :)
