Before you create your products, you have to figure out who your customer is, what they want, and how you are going to solve their problems. Then you can successfully create a product (s) that is going to fly off your website store shelves. We will start with discussing who your perfect customer is so that you can solve thier problems. I am even going to share my own target market for Mothersun, so if you have products similar to mine, I can automatically hand you over your target market. It has taken me two years to truly understand who I am selling to.

Why Work With Me
Because I am a passionate creative just like you who dreamt up a business one day and stopped at nothing to build it BIG. I understand what it’s like to be SO Creative that it’s hard to also be a strategic business owner at the same time. I know what it’s like to create but to not have web skills or selling skills in order to allow my creations to be seen by the world. I understand the entrepreneurial brain and the excitement that it brings. I also understand the overwhelm that comes with growing a business and supporting yourself with it.
Ten years ago at the age of 24, I took a GIANT leap of faith and started a business. My first job after college (I have a degree in fine art from the University of California, Santa Barbara) was in the marketing department of the finest luxury retail store in Santa Barbara. There I learned all the tricks of the trade in regards to running an online store, taking professional product photographs, and creating compelling marketing campaigns for print and for web. However, I just couldn’t imagine working for someone else’s dream for the rest of my life when I had all these wonderful ideas dancing in my head relentlessly. So I took the plunge and in 2008, I quit my full time, full benefits, paid vacation, fashion marketing job.
I invested in my own screen printing shop and ran a commercial screen printing business as well as my own private label graphic t-shirt line. I paid web developers $15,000 dollars for a website that never made me a penny and I wasn’t even able to run the backend without their help. Shopify had started just a few years earlier. And Squarespace was getting popular. One of my clients had a Squarespace store and I was able to learn quickly how to run her store. Then I started to build sites for myself and for clients. After I gave birth to my daughter Soleil, I sold my printshop and focused on motherhood for the first two years of her life. I literally got to spend every single day with my baby until she turned two. During that time I planned my career rebirth and knew I would have to move it online. Mothersun and the Captain became a little side project and I utilized all the skills, knowledge and contacts I had accumulated over the years. Soon after, I chose to become a single mom and step out into the world on my own, as the head of my household.
At the time, I felt like I needed a ton of jobs in order to support myself as a single mother living in a crazy expensive town in Central California. I got a job as a waitress at a wine bar, I became a certified dance fitness instructor, I ran my clients’ social media accounts for their businesses, I did freelance graphic design for jobs like book illustration, logo design, instagram branding, and other clothing design. I also ran Mothersun and the Captain, my online store in which I sell my own products to Millenial Mothers and their families. And after I worked myself sick trying to support my young daughter with no help from child support, I decided to quit all the jobs. Every single one of them. My goal was to work ONLY for myself, Mothersun and the Captain. And that is just what I did. I expanded my hat wholesaling distribution, I moved my website from Squarespace to Shopify and built an entirely new fresh website with all the sales channel gadgets and gizmos I needed to grow my online store and my monthly income.
I have learned how to implement the right systems, hire the right people to help me, and increase my income. I create my own schedule, work with AMAZING customers, and take time out for myself whenever I want to! The most fulfilling part of all of it though, is building this beautiful community of women and connecting with them on a really special level.

I've spent a lot of time and money on tools, systems, education and formal coaching to learn the keys to growing an online business.
