Who We Are

An LGBTQIA+ and veteran-owned business assisting fellow small business owners, freelancers, and other skilled professionals open new doors to success and prosperity. We cater to truly small service-based businesses, enabling us to provide end-to-end business management and development services. 

What We Stand For

We firmly believe business ownership helps promote equity, allows service professionals in every industry to benefit more from their labor, fosters greater work/life balance, and encourages greater community engagement.

Brandon McClure, Owner

Mission

We exist to help motivated LGBTQIA+ professionals start, manage, and grow their business and personal brand; to empower independent-minded experts with an entrepreneurial spirit to break free from the confines of their employer and live life on their terms.


Vision

We aspire to be a driving force in uprooting the status quo and driving positive societal change by empowering LGBTQ+ folx to launch and grow their business. We do this by helping as many skilled professionals as we can gain the knowledge, skills, abilities, and tools they need to succeed on their own.


Value Proposition

Your success is our success and your business is our business! We are one of few firms to focus on providing comprehensive advising solutions and direct support services geared toward the needs of freelancers & truly small businesses. Many larger competitors focus on only one or two business areas, using all sorts of gimmicks to get you to use their product only to sell you subscriptions and services you don’t need. To them, a small business can have up to $40m in revenue and 1,500 employees, so no wonder there is such a disconnect. We know that your brand and company are your livelihoods, so when you trust us, we will work hard for your business like it is our own because it is. You will feel the difference and be glad you partnered with us. 


Approach

You can expect us to be prompt & professional, courteous & responsive, and honest & straightforward without being stiff & stuffy. We’re advisors dedicated to fostering a long-term relationship with you to ensure success. We are here to encourage you and help you succeed while having fun. You will have a partner, a coach, and an advocate in your corner. We realize the competition is fierce in almost every profession, with freelancers and SBOs across all industries needing to compete with large corporations with billion-dollar marketing budgets. We know you will provide services superior to theirs, as most dedicated pros do, but you must make it easy for customers to find you, communicate with you, and pay you.
