“Working with Kris & Donna as design business mentors has been the single most  beneficial investment I’ve made for my business over the last 20 years...”

Sara Bowers, Graphic Designer and business owner | Studio 8

I was struggling with overwhelm, working too hard and not feeling as though I could get my head above water. I also lacked the confidence to be charging what I was worth. In the most nurturing and holistic way, they helped me through a complete re-work of my business strategies and systems and a whole new re-brand and vision for Studio 8.

It was a lot of intense work, but so so well worth it. Thank you a million Kris and Donna! You’ve helped transform my business to something that I am so proud of. I know my mentoring relationship will continue and I am so thrilled to see even more progress.
