Your Small Business BFF's

A community of badass ladies who are handling it when it comes to being a creative boss.

CYL Squad

What is the CYL Squad?

The Squad is an exclusive membership program which offers creative boss ladies the tools and resources to run a kick-ass business.

We believe that creativity is not a competition. We understand that with one another's support, we all can profit and be successful in our endeavors. 

When you join, you join a group of women who are passionate uplifting, and supportive.  As well as curated content and resources which have been created and collected to help you feel connected and confident in your creative ambitions!


These are the lessons I keep in mind as I create content and facilitate this community. Because these are the things that have made me successful!


  • There is no magic formula. What works for others, may need to be adapted to suit your needs.
  • You NEED to set up a solid foundation that is totally intentional.
  • Define what success looks like to you BEFORE even trying to sell your first product. This will set you up for mini-victories early on, which are going to make your life so much easier!
  • Keep your promises to yourself and build trust that you can see things through.
  • Avoid analysis paralysis at all costs! Learn the skill of decision-making.
  • Change your perspective to one that can enjoy the process and see progress. Don't be the person who is always worried about the milestones they HAVEN'T hit yet.
  • Learn to kindly critique yourself and accept feedback from others.
  • Keep like-minded friends who share big dreams and similar aspirations! *Ahem* Join a community of rad boss ladies! 😉


"Joining the CYL Squad has been so key to flourishing as a creative! I've found so much positive energy and encouragement that I treasure. It's a privilege to be among other creatives and to have the support and answers to questions you can't quite figure out on your own.

There are some very influential and experienced members who pour out amazing resources and helpful information that I would spend hours searching the web for. An amazing space to be for sure!"

Katelyn Morse, Birch & Bliss

"For me, the most important thing that has come from being part of CYL is that I have met great women who have been a great resource and support in a career that can sometimes be really lonely. Being a few years out of art school now, I missed the camaraderie that developed being in a community with other artists. Sometimes we need a sounding board or to get some trusted eyes on a difficult piece that has us wanting to throw in the towel. We meet each other where we are at, and coming from so many different backgrounds, it is a well rounded community that offers the opportunity to learn and grow."

Kait Masters, Larkspur & Laurel


"I've only been part of the Squad for a short while now, and I already see the value in being a member. In the past, I've often gotten a bit of a competitive vibe from other artists and makers, but being part of this amazing group of women has shown me that not everyone is like that! I feel so supported by the Squad! It is so encouraging to not only hear praise for my work, but helpful tips and tricks from people who are already doing what I want to do. And being part of a collaborative group of women, especially in this current political climate, is so dang important--keep pushing, keep making, and keep looking forward, because I'm not doing it alone."

Laura Wagner, Laura the Maker


  • Exclusive access to the CYL Squad community so you can connect with the right people and content to help you level up! (And even find members local to you... hello coffee and collabs!)
  • Quarterly Mastermind Calls that give members a chance to ask questions, offer insight and share success stories. 
  • Monthly AMA (Ask Me Anything) sessions that connect members with high-performing entrepreneurs.
  • Quarterly Member Hot Seats sessions, aka live mini-coaching sessions.

  • ...and more!


Do you take yourself and your business seriously? Are you open to new ideas and ready to work? Do you understand that there is no shortcut to success? Can you commit time (at least one hour a week  of active engagement is recommended, the members who seem to see the most growth spend 2-3 hours a week actively engaging with the community/content) and energy? Do you think we are better together? Do you genuinely believe in the collaborative and cooperative spirit of sharing and supporting other creative business owners?
