Week 2 - Product Collections: Learn what constitutes a good product collection, and how creating collections is great for scaling a product-based business
Week 3 - Dropshipping: So you can't sew pillows? This week we'll talk about how you can offer different products by utilizing the glory of dropshipping.
Week 4 - Wholesale 101. You're ready to put it all together. So this week we'll chat all things wholesale - how to pitch, some of the terms you'll hear, and what to expect from retailers.

I just got invited to speak at ALT conference!

We booked our first client for the year! A big-conference table for an architect company!

I just signed my first repeat client! I hosted a workshop for her and a friend at her home back in October & she just called me about running a 3 month social media campaign

I started my week with only 44 subscribers and just checked to see I got 72 new subscribers!!! 

I’ve been writing my list once a week since September- and it has gotten so so easy and so fun! I get replies back now too. I’m a huge believer of the list!

One of my goals for this year is to take Fridays completely OFF. Well, it’s been two weeks in a row where I’ve said NO to a client who requested a meeting, or for something to be done, on a Friday. I stuck to my guns and I said no both times. And you know what? The world did not stop spinning. I didn’t even get fired. We simply rescheduled for another time. Really proud of myself for living by my word for the year... BOUNDARIES!

So.. I have a new art studio space! And it isn't in my house! It's absolutely gorgeous, I can walk from home, and the owner is so generous. Also - I listened to all you smarties and started an email list, finally ;)

Guys, I got chosen to be in the juried #fresh section at National Stationery Show this spring! Woo hoo! That's the section that (I hear) buyers make a beeline for, since it's the newest stuff AND juried. So exciting! (And now I'm a nervous wreck.... )

A client was refusing to sign my contract & after a phone all of going through it line by line and standing my ground (it’s a totally standard, no frills contract), they’re signing! I’m not the best at handling these type of situations but I went into the call trying to be confident and knowing this is what’s best for my business so I’m so excited that it paid off!

I had my first set of viral pins this week!!!!!

I was just booked to give a live social media training to a team of hairstylists next month!

I wrote my first blog post today!

I just send out my first sales funnel- WIN, right!? We will see how it goes! I'm sure I have LOADS of room to improve the sales process, but I am excited! . . . . . . .

Within minutes of sharing it, TWO PEOPLE purchased the VIP package! All this happened while my sales page was less than perfect and my kids were having meltdowns over peanut butter sandwiches. Quickest $1000 I’ve ever made in my entire life!! I still can’t believe it’s happened….

Sign me up for these wins!

I'm ready to grow too!

I joined the Launch Brand Grow Community when I completed Copper Kettle Co's first summit, the Creative Brand Summit and FELL IN LOVE! I've always been very passionate about #CommunityOverCompetition and spaces where us female entrepreneurs can feel safe and welcomed. The LBG Community seemed like the perfect place for me. I've only had one meeting with my mastermind group so far and we clicked instantly. The workshops and guest speakers have been incredible so far. It's been an amazing space to have accessible at my fingertips.

Kathryn Coffman

I'd highly recommend the LBG Community to anyone looking to grow their business and not just survive, but THRIVE.

Since I've joined the LBG community, I've

I wouldn't have had the confidence or the encouragement to launch without LBG.

Vanessa Kynes

doubled my newsletter list, launched a course, and made so many business besties.

I've felt like I didn't really fit anywhere until I found this group! It's always like chatting with a group of friends who GET you, and the support is just amazing. 

Vanessa Ryan

I love it here, it doesn't matter where you are at in your business OR what your business is, you totally fit.

When I joined I was a bit of a hot mess (still am), but I'm a more focused, driven, and encouraged hot mess because of Kyrsten's leadership and the wisdom and caliber of talent in this group.

I chose to join the LBG Community because I wanted to connect with other creatives on a deeper level, learn more from others in fields I don't normally interact with, and overall be a part of a community who truly encourages and lifts each other up.

The amount of knowledge, value, honesty, openness, wisdom, and encouragement I've seen and received from the LBG Community 

Liz Strong

has been an invaluable investment in my business and my personal life.

All the creatives in here are so amazing and helpful, it's unreal. I'm so glad I joined!

IRA Kadir

Finally, I feel like I'm home.

I joined because of the incredible amount of resources and value that Kyrsten and other members bring to the group.

(though I hope to get really close to maxing out the resources some day!) Also, because of the consistent encouragement and advice that Kyrsten and the group gives each other. People truly want to help one another in the LBG community and that's created the most wonderfully positive and genuine atmosphere. WORTH IT!

Make sure to jump on the waitlist today so that you get FIRST access to the limited seats that will open again soon!

Okay I'm SO in!!

Sign up for the waitlist:

you may be asking yourself...

Basically, we have 3 tiers:

MICRO COURSES includes 16 business-building courses

COMMUNITY includes Micro Courses, Accountability, Community Access and some bonuses

ACCELERATOR includes the Micro Courses, the Community and is also our more intimate service where we help to expand your reach and lessen your marketing efforts for you

Need more details? Flip through the sections, what they include, prices, etc RIGHT HERE.

I'm still not sure what exactly is included... how does this work?

The Accelerator includes 6 months of Public Relations, general Marketing and Influencer Marketing services, and FOREVER access to the LBG Community! We will reach out to podcast and blog posts that would be great for your brand so that you can talk about what your best at without worrying about actually taking the time to pitch them.

It also includes access to our roughly 10,000 person audience, consisting primarily of creatives from wedding industry, product-based businesses and online B2B businesses. 

The vast majority of our audience is women ages 23-45 who own their own businesses and are looking to grow. If this is also your audience, then you're in the right place!

What does my accelerator payment include?

While we 100% respect your decision, we also want to point our that the Community is FOREVER access and will only get better with age, and the Accelerator is 90% done for you! You just sit back and relax, or come back to the Community whenever the time is right and we'll have MORE content each month for you to peruse at your leisure and when it best fits your business.

I won't be able to utilize it right now... I don't have enough time...

Nope! If you're already a member of the LBG, then you're officially grand-fathered in :)

The only reason why you would pay more is if you would like to upgrade to the Accelerator program, in which case that is still full price for already-registered monthly members.

If you're a grandfathered yearly member, you may get a discount on the Accelerator bundle, please contact us for more details :)

If I'm already a member do i need to pay again?

Our masterminds are unique in that they're END GOAL oriented! So each mastermind can be used as a 4-week Workshop Intensive as well as an accountability mastermind of similar-interest, similar-staged businesses.

Each mastermind has up to 15 people and a Leader and includes workshop materials provided by the Leader and will be hosted quarterly.

what's the deal with the masterminds?

No, the Micro Courses Bundle only includes the 16 micro courses coming out Q3. The Community will include ALL future Micro Courses, however!

does the micro course bundle get access to the community or future courses?

are there payment plans?

Yes! And if you're not totally sure, then click here and >> let's chat <3

I'm a new/old biz owner. will i fit in?

okay, i'm ready!

Sign me up for the waitlist!

Absolutely! While it's more cost effective to purchase the packages at their one-time price, we have payment plans that break down each tier into 4, quarterly payments :)

With the Micro Courses & Community bundles, you'll have access to the respective bundles forever!

How long does this all last?

For the Accelerator bundle, you'll work 1:1 with me (Kyrsten) for 6 months and then will have all of the Community benefits forever after!

How much time Do I need to commit to the Accelerator?

I'm really wanting to make this a 90% done-for-you project. The biggest things you'll be doing are 1. a call with me to establish your goals & 2. writing/being interviewed for blog posts, podcasts, etc (and we'll work with your schedule on this!). Otherwise, we'll take the reins!
