We Live and Breathe Marketing
In the beginning, I was exactly in your shoes.
Overwhelmed by marketing, social, blogs, emails, copywriting, events. WTF?
Well after a lot of trial and error, I discovered THIS sustainable marketing system that flipped my marketing game upside down - and helped my companies grow.
I've since teamed up with veteran consultant Dave Kusek and together formed Ugli Ventures to help female founders grow their brands, scale their revenue and dramatically increase their impact. That is why we are here.
