Mission statement

To assist overwhelmed entrepreneurs bring their unique ideas to life through our 1:1 experienced based program by creating clarity and a solid foundation through actionable steps, a little push and accountability. 

Who am I to help you?

My name is Cassy, I grew up in the suburbs of Vancouver with an older sister who knew what she wanted and how she was going to get there, a Mom who worked long evening shifts and gave entrepreneurship a fair shot while my Dad ran a successful partnership business with his brother. I struggled my way through high school feeling the pressure of adulthood and how I was supposed to know where I was headed. At that time, all I knew was; I never wanted to work 9-5, I wanted to work for myself, I had the travel bug and I sure as hell wasn’t ready to start making these big life decisions.

After many months of travelling, exploring countless countries and many cultures while ignoring all my family and societal pressures that the clock was ticking- I was finally ready at the age of 25 to hit the books. I went to BCIT and studied Business Management, it was general enough to not pigeonhole myself in case I changed my mind (which I didn’t even have my mind made up then) and gave me a good foundation for entrepreneurship.

Post University I took off travelling one last time to truly seek out my purpose, searching for that golden idea to launch me into entrepreneurship. Once again, returning home empty handed. At this point I was extremely frustrated that I still didn’t know what I wanted to do. The endless feeling of being lost and lack of purpose drove me to do a lot of soul searching; seeking out different avenues to discover the one thing we are all searching for, purpose. After a lot of learning about myself, what I liked, disliked, my ideal day, interests, passions- I ended up seeing a pattern throughout my life, little moments of the same feeling and curiosity. Diving deep into what that meant I discovered a passion that I always had but never looked at as something to create a business around. Five chaotic months later I launched WOASH, a Vancouver based loose-leaf tea brand that bridges the gap between traditional herbal medicine and modern wellness.

During those 5-months another passion of mine surfaced (clearly broke the seal), the underlying system of creating a business from idea to reality. I spent half my time creating my business and the other half documenting how I was doing it, what worked, what didn’t. Since then I’ve stream lined a system to bring clarity, motivation, accountability and actionable steps to you no matter where you are currently at; a rough idea, product testing, started but procrastinating, totally lost or making head-way but unsure how to get to the finish line to ensure you reach your goal of becoming a successful entrepreneur.

This mentorship program is for you if: 

  • Have always dreamed about becoming an entrepreneur and owning your own business
  • Are currently tired of your current job / career and want to pivot into starting your own business
  • Have an idea that you know people need, would love and benefit from
  • Have a passion project that you want the world to see but are unsure how to bring it to life
  • If your to-do’s for your side-hustle keep getting pushed to the bottom of the list
  • Keep telling yourself, “tomorrow I will start” or “I have no time”
  • Have no idea where to begin
  • Have a notebook full of ideas and can’t decide which one to pursue
  • Need to be held accountable and could benefit from a little pressure
  • Work best with structure and tools to keep you on track
  • Have a laundry list of pressing questions you need answered
  • Feel like you have no one to turn to when the ebbs and flows of entrepreneurship start to weigh on you
  • Feel like no one understands what you are going through
  • If the 9-5 isn’t for you
  • You crave freedom financially and creatively
  • Are ready and willing to put in the time and hard work it takes to be an entrepreneur
  • Are ready to make your first investment into making your business a reality

This mentorship is not for you if:

  • You are not ready to fully commit
  • You are not willing to dedicate time to this process
  • You are not ready to show up when times get tough
  • You have one foot in and one foot out
  • You are not willing to be resourceful and step outside your comfort zone
  • You are not ready to fully leap into entrepreneurship
  • Adding an additional work load to your current lifestyle


What you will get out of this mentorship

Whether you need a list of pressing questions answered to get you over that hump, a push to get you going and build momentum or a support system to hold you accountable until the check list is complete, I will be there to hold space for you and keep you moving forward. I’ve been through each of those scenarios plus that overwhelming feeling you are probably faced with right now. I will help you bring your business from that idea in your notebook or which ever stage you are currently at into reality. We will create clarity and purpose amongst all the chaos by creating a structure that suits your lifestyle, holds you accountable and makes your unique goal a reality. You will have access to all of my do’s, don’ts, wish I had’s and list of top resources.

I will be with you, cheering you on and seeing you through every milestone until you reach your goal! 

 

What is the 10-step program

My unique experienced based 10-step program consists of 10 major aspects crucial to creating a solid foundation for any type of business that will ensure a successful launch, taking your business to that next level or pivoting into a new direction. Each major aspect consists of a series of probing questions, tools and resources to confidently complete the checklist and be one major milestone closer to meeting your goal! 

This method is tried and true! After launching two successful business' and gaining major insight into the process from other founders I began to notice unique trends, mistakes, wins, what worked well and what did not. After analyzing all of this information it became so clear to me that launching a business, pivoting or leaping into that next phase doesn't have to be so overwhelming or terrifying. The key is to begin with a solid foundation by getting really clear on your business, making sure the fundamentals are in place and that each box is checked off.

In addition to pushing your limits professionally, mentally and often emotionally I also noticed one key element among all successful businesses, "self-discovery." With out discovering our inner selves and taking care of our needs we are unable to support the growth of our business. I have strategically included a variety of weekly 'Self Challenges' to push you outside of your comfort zone to only begin exploring what you are so incredibly capable of.

After completing my unique experienced based program you will have clarity and a solid foundation to grow your business for the coming years with confidence and ease. 

The 10-steps:

  1. Business Clarity
  2. Business Offering
  3. Target Market
  4. Business Test
  5. Business Pre-requisites
  6. Business Identify
  7. Business First Impression 1.0
  8. Business First Impression 2.0
  9. Business Footprint
  10. Business Essentials

Bonus: A list of tools and resources that have saved me time, money and many headaches.
