"I absolutely loved and appreciated the help I received from DeAndra to grow my business!"

She helped me organize all of the admin tasks for my beauty business, from client contracts to payments by recommending a great CRM system and helping me navigate the platform to understand it and use it effectively.Because of her I’ve been able to show up even more professional in my beauty business, my clientele has grown exponentially, and I’m no longer overwhelmed with the backend operations of my business.

" She is a generous teacher, inspiring entrepreneur, creative genius and just a truly wonderful human."

So when we decided to start offering in-house balloons, I knew she would be the perfect person to consult and help us launch our balloon program. She came out to the venue and trained my staff not only on the fundamentals of balloon styling (and no, you cannot learn her trademark organic styling techniques from random YouTube tutorials… TRUST); but beyond that she is truly an artist and empowered my staff to be bold and bring their own unique style to their balloon designs. She is a generous teacher, inspiring entrepreneur, creative genius and just a truly wonderful human. We can’t recommend her enough!

"DeAndra is a true gem and I cannot thank her enough for all the time spent in helping me launch my creative business."

Starting a business can feel overwhelming when you are in it alone but having DeAndra by my side as I began my journey was instrumental in helping me overcome obstacles. She was a wonderful mentor, cheerleader and sounding board. Her coaching program and step by step approach not only gave me the tools to launch a profitable business, but more importantly it gave me the confidence I needed to turn my dream into a reality.
