The Business Firestarter
Self-Guided Digital Course
Coming Fall 2021.
The High-Impact, Zero-Fluff
to Launch & Grow a Business You Love
So, you know you want to start your own business. Now what?
I talk to aspiring small business owners every single day. And do you want to know their most common concerns before getting started?
I don't know where to start. - There's so much to do and I feel overwhelmed. - I'm not ready. - I don't know what I want to offer or how to price it. - I'm afraid I'll fail. - There seems to be so much that I don't know. - I have no idea where I'll find clients. - I don't know how I'll find the time or resources to make it happen.
With this sea of concerns readily available, it's no wonder so many people opt to take a long swim in its depths before ever (if ever) taking action on their business dreams.
I designed this 12-week framework to address all of these aspiring small business owner concerns, plus much more, based on my expertise as a marketing and business strategist.
After helping my coaching clients successfully start and grow their businesses with this framework, I'm now offering it in a self-guided and more financially accessible course format.
When you give yourself the gift of working through this framework, you'll find yourself breaking the limiting loops you're trapped in and shaking up your self-limiting beliefs.
You’ll gain clarity on your vision, clearly define your brand, build a strong business plan and design your marketing strategy.
Oh, and you'll actually launch your business.
This is your Business Firestarter. online course.

What the Firestarters have to say...
I took Geri's Business Firestarter course, and the “ROI” was so much more than I could have ever expected. I developed a no-nonsense plan of action, and I felt confident in the direction I’m heading. Geri’s course worked so well that I am actually booked BEFORE my launch
If you are looking to launch (or scale) a biz, Geri is THE coach to work with and The Business Firestarter is the structure you didn't know you needed. Geri cuts through the fluff, simplifies, and gives you the "must have" roadmap to turn your idea into a reality. Before working with her, I spent 6 months paralyzed by self limiting beliefs and telling myself I would work on my business when I have the time. Within 10 weeks, I progressed further than I could have imagined. I am on the verge of launching and could not have done it without her (and the building block framework she developed).

The Business Firestarter is a class that I thought I needed, but I didn't know how much I needed it. The class covered every aspect of both starting a new business and launching new offerings. Not only was Geri informative but she was validating, personable, and inspiring throughout the class. The invaluable material are things that I will use in both my professional and personal life.
