FAQS

You’ve tried to figure this all out on your own, but you just can't quite put all the pieces together. It feels like you've tried everything to grow this thing you love...

• You've crafted offers and grown to a point but still can't get  past the struggles of business ownership? 

• The back end parts of your business feel so time consuming that you avoid them at all cost...which just makes you feel more disconnected and full of self-doubt?

• Comparison to others in your industry and not fully understanding how to manage your time, bring in more clients, price yourself correctly, or have the "time freedom" that you see  entrepreneurs talk about wearing you out and it's making you want to give up?

That's why we're here. 

Hey friend... you tired? Things in your business feeling heavy? Is growth feeling too far away to talk about?

Sounds like a dream, right? 
 It's NOT!
And we have just the space for you! 

Imagine feeling free enough in your work that you could pivot on a dime,  bring in new offers with fluidity, and have your customers adapt to the time frames that work for YOU instead of feeling like you're on a hamster wheel that never allows for rest?

What if working on your taxes, contracts, and all the back end things that normally make your palms sweat every month didn't feel hard? How much more time would you be able to spend booking new clients if you didn't have to waste time with that stress? 

Imagine never having to second guess yourself when a potential client questions your pricing? Imagine being so concrete on when to raise your prices and knowing exactly how you SERVE so you never have to doubt a sale again...

Picture how it will feel to finally walk in confidence and understand WHY you run your business the way you do...

Corry has spent the last 14 years running a wildly successful senior and branding photography studio, educating creative entrepreneurs through speaking engagements, and coaching new photographers on how to uplevel their offers while claiming their place in the industry! 

Melissa has spent the last 16 years investing in couples, families, and businesses as a photographer, speaking at events, educating creative entrepreneurs, and  coaching female founders to run their businesses with confidence and joy! 

In January of 2021 with the pandemic flaring and our businesses changing shape, we noticed a lot of our fellow creatives closing their doors. Business was hard and it felt like those who were left with doors still open were trying to figure out how to pivot and make a "new normal"  fit into their old plans. We believe if you can fall in love with the BUSINESS of your business, you can thrive no matter what because fear will diminish, flexibility will be present, and you will be able to recognize opportunity when it comes knocking. The goal is FREEDOM in your business...and we know exactly how to help you find it!

The Business Reboot Retreat
Charleston, SC.
Sept. 18-22, 2022

We offered this retreat in January of 2022 and the road blocks came crumbling down for everyone there! After two years of uncertainty, distance, and overwhelmingly difficult times for creative entrepreneurs, we wanted to offer a new way to learn.  

This retreat is an extension of hands set to remind creatives that the work they do is VITALLY important. We wanted to wipe away uncertainty and exchange wavering faith in business for solid, concrete footers for every woman we encountered. We wanted it to be really personal and lovely so  we've done just that! 

There is magic in the walls of a place filled with support and encouragement...

What makes this retreat special?

• Properly price your offerings so that you don't ever feel pressured to discount or fear questions from potential clients again! 

• Navigate contracts, taxes, licenses, and all of the back end protocols that can make a small business owner breathe into a paper bag! 

• Structure your systems and workflow so that you build in time to actually live the life you are working so hard to create. 

• Use social media to nurture your clients and tell your story without fear.

• Grow in confidence for how you serve your people and learn how to take them on a client experience journey that will turn transactions into relationships.

• Build community with like-minded  women who will rally in support of YOUR successes and provide a sounding board long after the retreat is over! 

You'll learn how to:

But you just...write it off! Haha!  One thing we are really good at is helping reverse engineer numbers to help you figure out exactly how to make it happen!  The truth is, you can't afford to keep feeling stuck or directionless, friend. We offer payment options and want this to work for YOU so that you finish the year strong and walk into 2023 ready to take action and make moves that light you up! 

*Im not sure I can afford it

Girl, the devil is a lie! But in all seriousness, there is ALWAYS more to learn! Business the way it's always been done is changing and we are going to help you dig into new ways to generate revenue, streamline what you currently offer, and leave feeling reinvigorated to  continue blessing the world with your gifts! 

*I'm not a newbie, I probably won't learn anything new

Not true. The best time to start is right now. If we had the proper tools and support when we first started our businesses, we would have saved ourselves a lot of stress and walked in the freedom of our businesses much sooner! 

*i'm not established enough

You can do this (we promise!) - even if you’re thinking…

• One on one coaching from Corry & Melissa + social media audits by the one and only Ashleigh Henry

*3.5 days jam packed full of content with guest speakers and time to work ON your business

• A workbook full of notes and work pages to use as a continuous resource once the retreat is over

• New headshots to use for your website & social platforms

• Almost all meals, tons of snacks and drinks, and a little swag to make the week just perfect and cozy!

" I could list 100 things as my biggest take away. But it all boils down to confidence! I received a huge amount of confidence in being able to move forward in all areas of my business. From pricing to social media content creation, financial organization. Knowing that I am taking the right steps in the right direction to grow my business and having a second set of eyes and thumbs up to tell me I’m doing it correctly gave me a whole new level of confidence to move forward.  experience…plan, prepare, save, sell just get yourself there! The content, coaching and encouragement dished out at this event will launch your business to the next level. Unplug, learn, connect and create."

Here is what past attendees are saying! 

Maggie A. 

"Don't think twice about signing up. I mean it. Just do it! The Business Reboot was hands down THE best investment in my business, and myself as a professional/creative, that I could have ever made. From beginning to end it was everything I needed and more.These big goals that I once thought were far too crazy for me to ever achieve have now been reverse engineered and we have a plan to accomplish them...Walking away from the retreat, I can with 100% certainty say that my heart has never felt more alive and passionate about this business. In a month, I've made approximately 25% of what I made in all of 2021!"

Lauren M. 

"Corry & Melissa were just as amazing to work with as I thought they would be!! Haha, I had several takeaways from the retreat but the biggest was the reminder of how amazing community is and where I want to take my business. I didn't want it to end & I'm so grateful for the time spent there. I hope to have made some lifelong friends, all the ladies there were so amazing and a blessing to have in my life! Seriously I cannot say enough good things about this retreat it was worth EVERY penny, I would take the leap of faith again in a heartbeat. Such an incredible investment and well worth it!"
