so... what exactly would you guys say you "do here"?

business strategy & education for the creativepreneur

Kelly and I help people to not only start creative businesses, but to grow them significantly and quickly.

We help people who are thinking of starting businesses to do so on the right foot, creating maximum profits and marketing efforts quickly without wasted effort.

We help creatives to discover and develop their brands - as former brand and web designers and strategists, we understand the significant impact that a well developed brand can have on a business.

We help established businesses to flourish through financial and mindset

training. Kelly's strengths lie in the technical arenas and my own strengths are through creativity and drive.

Copper Kettle Co is 2 years old and has officially had multiple multi-5 figure months. We help others to get there, too, no matter their particular strengths, weaknesses or business models.






The literal way that we make money & help others is through our Launch Brand Grow Community, our Courses, and our annual  Launch Brand Grow Summits.

“I have absolutely LOVED working Copper Kettle Co.” - LUME & PENNA

“Working with Kyrsten was a breeze! Not only was Kyrsten able to work with patience and consideration to get to the heart of what we truly wanted our [brand] to represent, but she was also very honest and responsive, gave her opinion when we needed it, and welcomed our feedback. We appreciated working with someone who would be truthful with us and treat us as friends just as much as clients. We’re so glad that we got to work with Copper Kettle Co!
- RADIAN PHOTOGRAPHY

“Working with Kyrsten has been awesome! My business now feels so much more mature and unique. Working with Kyrsten was a breeze. I would highly recommend working with Copper Kettle Co!”

our mission statement

we help creatives (just like you) to...

create a brand that stands out, gets noticed and makes waves

recognize and master your superpowers

build your passion projects into your money maker

find and create your specific niche for amazing profits and credibility

create brand visuals even with zero design skills

gain confidence through your underutilized skills (because, yes, you DO have some amazing skills that you definitely aren't using!)

decide when and how to hire your team

understand that you do NOT have an income ceiling and that everything that you wish you had is actually well within reach (and obviously we show & help with how!)

create website copywriting that converts and sounds authentically you

develop a solid social media strategy and plan so that you're actually booking paying clients & customers

find mental clarity in the chaos of business ownership

take scary, yet calculated risks to grow beyond what you think is possible

understand finances in a way that makes accounting easy

pursue and achieve more than you think you can do

because

we've done it ourselves.

we know that anyone with the right tools, motivation and drive can do it, too.

we want to share the tools that we've found and developed (because it's a lonely world going it alone!).

we believe strongly in community and uplifting others.

thinking of your passions gets me all kinds of giddy!

we genuinely want to help you succeed.

we believe that the wave of online-entrepreneurship is changing the world for the better.

it has never been easier to start a business and growth is inevitable with the right tools and drive!

we understand just how much branding can make a difference (and we understand how, why and what to do to make those differences).

we want you to have tools, education, workshops, mentorships, etc available to you at a rate that's likely way cheaper than your monthly coffee consumption.

we believe in you!

we understand how difficult it can be to navigate the chaos of educational tools - so we want it to be as streamlined and all-inclusive for you as possible.
