CHANGE AGENT STUDIO

Your profitable business starts here.
Without burning out or stalling out.

  

Coaching + mentorship for small business owners craving a GPS. 

Destination: More revenue, less hustle. 

Does it feel like your life and business is a browser with too many tabs open?

Have you ever had one of those days: you work hard, but at the end of it you wonder, “did I even get anything done?”

What would become possible for you if every week, you were completely clear on your priorities and you acted accordingly?

Henry David Thoreau


 

 

Introducing: Planning for Profit & Pleasure

  • Prioritize the right stuff at the right time 

  • No more indecision, procrastination, or time wasted on “busy work“

  • Building in agility & flexibility for the unplanned and unpredictable

 

You’d love to but…

... you have a LOT of questions about where to focus first - everything feels like it needed to be done yesterday!
... deep down you know the pace you're running your biz at right now isn't sustainable, or conducive to growing.
… you’d need 1,000 hours a day and Hermione’s time-turner to do what every other business guru says you need to do.



Hey, y’all! I’m Emily.

For years I managed a coworking studio supporting hundreds of business owners growing their businesses. Year after year I would watch a handful of entrepreneurs thrive and grow their business and many others struggle - only to end up burnt out.

Here's what I know about successful entrepreneurs: they have strong AF foundations and resilience is built into how they operate. The pandemic has irrevocably changed how we do business. 

In From Hustle to Hell Yes programs by Change Agent Studio, social-impact driven business owners learn how to get more done, move the needle on issues they care about, and make more money doing it.

When you work with me, you learn how to use neuroscience + biology to skip all the BS and get right to the stuff that MATTERS MOST in your business: profit, purpose, and pleasure.

 

 

 

“Working with Emily and Change Agent has given us insights into new revenue opportunities that have reduced work instead of creating more tasks to complete. She gave us a clear path to move our company forward and a concrete plan on how to get there.”

— DUSTIN WRIGHT, DISABILITY COCOON

Here's what I know to be true:

Running a business is freaking hard, and not because it's complicated. What makes running a business hard is how triggering it can be. Any insecurities or doubts you have won't go away just because you're fully in the drivers seat in your work life. 

I’m like a "business therapist." I can't help you heal a core wound or boost your mental health, but I know how to help you move through the messy middle of growing a business with ease, enjoyment, and effectiveness.

If you're a human with a big vision for the future, I'll help you flourish within your business as you bring that vision to life. 


 

We go together like Chips and Guac if…

      

Here’s how I help business owners joy ride their way to sustainable, profitable businesses without burning out, getting stuck, or stalling out:

          

I believe businesses are microcosms of the world we're building and through them we can achieve personal freedom, AND we can create real, lasting, impactful change on the most insidious problems the world is facing: from climate change to the global mental health crisis.

Being busy isn’t why you started your business. You started your business to play by your own rules, doing work that you love that has an impact on the people you serve.

There’s a few more things you should know about me…

about+me+gif-4

I started my career touring with Hilary Duff and Dolly Parton. The entertainment industry gave me valuable lessons in creative collaboration, working smarter not harder, and how to make difficult decisions work for you instead of against you. I went on to work with entrepreneurs as a community builder inside a coworking studio - where I helped connect entrepreneurs to knowledge and resources to grow their businesses.

I believe our businesses are microcosms of the world we're building and that through them we can achieve personal freedom, AND we can also create real, lasting, impactful change on the most insidious problems the world is facing: from widening chasms of inequality to climate change to the global mental health crisis.

Your business can have a bigger mission and vision, and still be profitable. You can get paid AND have a massive positive impact without stalling out or burning out.

Here's what I know about successful entrepreneurs: they have strong foundations operating behind the scenes.
