meet sierra bailey
your talented, tiny business educator
I’m Sierra Bailey and I love helping tiny businesses thrive. You’re running a tiny business, you want to stay tiny, but you also want to succeed and grow. WELL, I’M HERE TO HELP YOU DO IT.
Running a tiny business is different than running any other business out there. Most tiny business owners realize this, but they can’t find the advice, expertise and education they really need after the beginning phase is over.
I created and ran a successful tiny jewelry design business for 16 years. Now I educate other tiny business owners on all the things I learned the long way, through trial and error, lots and lots (and lots) of reading, listening to podcasts and applying what I was learning to my own tiny business. Even though I loved designing and making jewelry, everyone kept telling me I needed investors, I needed to scale, I needed more, more, more, and I didn’t love that so much. There was also a huge gap in information on how to run my business after I had it going for a few years.
I know from my own experience that there wasn’t a resource for tiny business owners who had gone past the beginning stages.
BUT NOW THERE’S ME.
I want to share everything I’ve learned and help you leverage the advantages of having a few years under your belt to make your tiny business thrive.
What I see with tiny business owners is a lot of frustration and overwhelm because of wasted time, energy and resources trying to do all the things. They take classes and get advice from people who offer cookie cutter solutions to starting a business – not running a business AND for every kind of business besides tiny businesses. In the process, owners lose momentum on their big goals, getting stuck in the day to day overwhelm of urgent needs and the busy work of running a business.
I’m here to show you how to grow your business without burnout and overwhelm, while still doing the thing that you love every day.
My tiny business was featured in over 60 national magazines including Real Simple, Southern Living, InStyle, Redbook and People Style Watch. My designs were worn on Gossip Girls and Criminal Minds, I’ve been a guest on podcasts as well as national and local news programs, given countless talks to thousands of people and run the social media programs of several non-profits. I’ve hosted a live TV show, two podcasts, published articles in both magazines and blogs and taught workshops and classes to hundreds of people.
AND NOW I WANT TO WORK WITH YOU.
If you’re like most tiny business owners, you’ve:
YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE IF YOU’RE PAST READY TO WORK WITH SOMEONE WHO:
Has been in your shoes, knows what it takes to run a successful – even six-figure – tiny business AND will to teach you how to do it too.
Is in your corner, will be your own personal cheerleader and will hold you accountable so you can realize all of your business goals.
Educates tiny business owners with personalized advice, expertise and feedback, because each business is unique and doesn’t fit into a blanket business course that works for everyone.
Will help you create an action plan just for your business, that is tailored to tiny businesses, not management, not large businesses, only tiny businesses like yours.
I’ve watched the tiny business owners I work with get focused on the important versus the urgent, get a strategy – and a plan to implement that strategy, get the real business advice they need for tiny businesses and create the thriving business of their dreams.
My clients have gone on to:
What are all the things that led me to right here, right now? (Okay, maybe not all the things, but here are some highlights.)
If you’re wondering what on earth I’m talking about in that last line, email me and I’ll explain!
I am mildly obsessed with running and helping tiny businesses. Let’s work together so you can run the business you love with joy and success
