For the Aspiring Business Owner

Imagine finally having the clarity, direction, and support you need to fully launch your business. What would it mean to you to sign your first clients?

For the Current Business Owner

Imagine aligning your business so powerfully with your vision that you feel inspired again. What would it mean to you to achieve your financial goals each month? How would it feel to simplify and focus your offerings and marketing? How would you show up in your business if you knew exactly how you'd take it to the next level?

Building a Business Doesn't Have to Be a Struggle

Will it challenge you? Sure! Will it expose you to the unknown? Absolutely. Will it be easy? Not always! But it does not have to be painful, overwhelming, or depleting.

The Business Firestarter saves you from the struggle.

With this program, you can say goodbye to...

Countless hours spent Googling, trying to weed through hundreds of resources that all have a different perspective

Putting tons of energy and effort into a business that isn't set up to meet your financial goals

Wondering how to apply what you've learned to your own unique situation

Feeling alone and isolated as you work through imposter syndrome and fear

Allowing indecision, lack of clarity, or open-ended questions to paralyze you in inaction

Feeling lost and overwhelmed, without a clear direction and strategy

Getting trapped in the spiral of planning and preparing instead of making it happen

Trying to find the time and space to work on making it all happen

Wondering what you're doing wrong and not knowing what to do differently 

Spending your precious time and resources on things that are not moving the needle

I took the Business Firestarter course, and the “ROI” was so much more than I could have ever expected. I can’t recommend it enough. I met an incredible group of women who are equally passionate. I developed a no-nonsense plan of action, and I felt confident in my direction. This course worked so well that I am actually booked BEFORE my launch. Thank you Geri for your guidance and ability to hold space for all of us. Geri is incredible, and I am so grateful.

The Business Firestarter program was everything I needed and more. It provided all the support, information, resources, and community one would need to start a profitable business. It honestly exceeded my expectations. Every week the information became more and more valuable. Geri, along with the rest of the group members, provided such a safe space for community, asking questions and gaining the confidence to move forward with your plans and ideas. I highly recommend this program to anyone who has a business idea but is struggling to get started.

Honestly? I gained more knowledge about launching small, attainable, scalable startups in this 12-week program than I did in a year-long entrepreneurship course in my business degree.

If I didn't take this course, I would still be in a spiral of self-doubt. This course was the pedal-to-the-metal that I needed to jolt me out of my own fears and insecurities and actually start building the projects that I'm passionate about.

 

From the moment I first chatted with Geri, I knew The Business Firestarter was going to be like boarding an airplane to a new destination...and breaking the sound barrier on the way. This program is fast-paced, engaging, empathetic, tough-loving – it is the perfect antidote to any thoughts of "My idea isn't great" or "I couldn't run my own business!"

Geri is a coach who not only provides the training regimen but who also runs alongside the team. It's hard to find someone who is so passionate about being all of those things, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to have learned so much from her!

The Truth About Meditation

By Alex Bynum, Spiritual Guide & Healer

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).

Hi, I'm Geri

I'm a former startup and corporate marketing leader turned successful six-figure entrepreneur, and wow do I have a lot to share with you.

I've served as a leader in business strategy, marketing strategy, brand development and so much more...

Over the past decade, I developed a powerful approach to launching and growing businesses from the ground up, and turned my expertise into a business launch framework that actually works.

It works so well, in fact, that I earned $10k in my second month as a business coach, and now enjoy the freedom of consistent five-figure months while working under 40 hours per week.

It is my mission to combine coaching and leadership with my business and marketing expertise to help you achieve the freedom you want in life via small business ownership.

Geri's program allowed me to stop just thinking about starting my new business and instead taking actionable steps to launching. Geri's guidance and support was crucial to feeling the confidence I needed to put my vision into reality. Her weekly lessons were full of useful nuggets and built off each other so that by the end I had a thoughtful plan on how to launch successfully. I'm so grateful to the amazing women she gathered in this program- I learned from each and every one of them. I got from this program exactly what I was hoping for: support and accountability.

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.

Geri’s coaching provides knowledgeable guidance, enthusiastic motivation, and kind-hearted support. The Business Firestarter Group Coaching Program was well-organized, gave me a sense of clarity around complex topics, provided me with insights about myself in relation to my business, and supported me in moving forward when I encountered obstacles or had questions. Now that I have completed the program, I possess the information, structures, and mindset that I need to address all the tasks that I must accomplish in order to start my business. Thank you Geri for giving me the tools and the confidence to set up my business for success.
