Welcome - I'm so happy you're here!
In case we haven't met, I'm Krista. I do WordPress development for designers over at Krista Rae LLC, co-host the Get Back To Design podcast, and co-own the Coded Creative Themes shop.
There was a time when I felt like I was standing still. Like my business had maxed out and was going nowhere. But then I started simplifying and making sure that the things I did were actually working. And when I found something that didn't work, I got rid of it. I created new systems, did more outsourcing, eliminated things that weren't serving me well, and doubled-down on the things that were. It was a night-and-day difference.
My dream for this 5-day implementation-focused event is for each and every one of you to perfect your design packages and create a simple marketing plan that you'll stick to so you can feel confident in what you offer and book more clients moving forward.
I can't wait for you to see what all is in store for you here. But for now, onto your amazing speakers!
How To Prosper In Business & Branding
Meet Britney Jeanine—one of Jesus' homies, a wife, mother, entrepreneur and true Florida girl.
Currently based in Atlanta, Georgia, Britney runs a boutique brand studio (Britney Jeanine & Co.) focused on providing a unique brand experience, photography, web & graphic design, to creatives and small businesses alike. Britney has been blessed to design for over 100+ brands, and is passionate about helping folks take back their confidence by visually captivating their audiences on & offline.
A proud graduate of Georgetown University where she received her Masters in Public Relations & Corporate Communications, and a Florida State Seminole with a background in Finance & Marketing, Britney started her career in Washington, D.C. as a communications strategist supporting high-level government officials in the Pentagon. Missing the opportunity to fuel her creative spark, Britney sought out to run a business that would scratch the itch, and quit her almost 6 figure job in 2014.
When Britney is not providing her services to new and established brands, you can catch Britney with her family, traveling, eating and finding excuses not to workout.

Price For Profit And Raise Your Rates
Erin Flynn teaches freelance web designers how to take back control of their businesses (and lives!). After starting her own freelance web design business in 2012, Erin realized that most web designers were disorganized and struggling to make their businesses more profitable without adding to their workload. Hitting that "next level" just wasn't happening.
After getting her own systems in order and creating raving fans out of her clients, Erin knew she had to help other designers do the same. Today, she's helped over 10,000 students do everything from plan and build a basic website, to organize their processes, to restructure their work days so that they can FINALLY take a weekend off without guilt.
When Erin's not glued to her computer screen, she loves binge-watching Netflix with her husband and cat (who has his own Instagram--yes, the cat), and exploring the mountains around her home in Aspen, Colorado.
