About Sierra Bailey
Sierra Bailey is a champion for talented, tiny business owners. She helps them solve their problems from the technical to time management. She created Doers Shakers Makers, a podcast, Facebook group, and membership group where she provides the support, education, and tools for business owners who are past the start-up phase in their tiny businesses.
She came to this career after 20 years as a designer during which no one would listen when she would insist that she could grow her business by staying a micro business and focusing on the work that best used her talents.
She finally understood that if she wanted to fill this gap in support for business owners, she would have to the one to figure it out and pivoted her career to do just that. Sierra lives in Austin, TX with her husband Adam and her dog Faye.

Speaking Topic: The Who, What, When and How About Scaling and Why It Matters To Your Business.
If you want to build a business beyond your being the principle decision maker, expand to more locations, or one day sell the business then you would need to scale. However, many of the tenants of scaling, such as implementing systems, can make a business of any size run more efficiently regardless of how much you want to grow. Join Sierra Bailey as she explains the who, what, when, and how of scaling and why even if you’re not looking to scale your business right now, you should understand the principles.
Speaking Topic: Boundaries are the building blocks to success
We often assume that if we are unavailable 27/7 that business will go elsewhere. That however is a lie that needs to be crushed. Setting boundaries in business will provide you with success and sanity. In this session, Sierra Bailey will explain what exactly boundaries are and why you need them. You’ll learn techniques for setting effective boundaries, examples to inspire you, and how to respectively say no, and why “no” is a complete sentence.

She made the story of her burnout part of the exit strategy and was able to keep her 13k+ facebook fans on board as she went from a jewelry brand to a business consultant. Are you worried that you will lose your following if you pivot? This session will deep dive into burnout, pivoting and how to move forward.
