It’s great in a pinch, but Google is no business coach.
Becoming more visible on social media, increasing your sales, gaining higher profitability, and building your team for scaling doesn't come with a pre-made template. Your business is unique! And it needs more attention than any freebie can provide.
Let’s find out — answer these questions!
Does your business model require you to be present or involved in the execution of every event or project?
If you have a team, do you need to give them their tasks each day/week/month so they know what to be working on?
Does your business have limited financial capacity based on the number of weekends in a year or number of hours in a day?
Are you building a business or have you built a very demanding job?
"I can’t recommend Brandee enough for any strategy call or coaching program!"
As an experienced wedding planner of 10+ years, I thought I had a decent understanding of my business. However, I wasn’t exactly solid when it came to knowing my finances. As we are looking to expand our team, I decided to do a strategy session with Brandee to get clarity on where we are at and where we should go. Brandee’s strategy session was so valuable and open. I could ask her ANYTHING about her own business and she was Open to sharing. She had me break down my numbers on a custom spreadsheet and we then analyzed the health of my business. I might want to do this every couple of years. I can’t recommend Brandee enough!

"A mentor empowers a person to see a possible future, and believe it can be obtained."
Brandee has empowered me to see the future in my business and my worth! If a person doesn’t have worth, then they can no longer feel as though a future can be obtained. Thank you so much, Brandee, for getting me to where I am and helping me become the business owner that I want to be!
- Lauren Merinar, LaurenCo Events
"First of all, if you are considering doing this, DO IT!"
My partner + I scheduled a 1:1 strategy call with Brandee to see what advice she had for us as we continue to grow and scale our business. We found the 90-minute call to be so valuable, and it gave us the opportunity to show her the inner workings of our business and receive feedback that was specifically tailored to us, our paint points, and where we are at in our journey. We walked away with actionable bite-sized pieces of advice to begin implementing immediately as well as a plan for our long term strategy. She is such a wealth of knowledge, so thank you, Brandee Gaar!

"The Create Your 6-Figure Plan Workshop was exactly what I needed."
Owning a business as a solopreneur can be hard and lonely at times. You don’t always know if you’re doing the right things and doing them at the right time. The financial side of owning a company was something I was not comfortable with tackling. I was worried I would somehow mess it up if I even started it, so having Brandee’s class and guidance was HUGE for me. She’s a business coach I trust and admire greatly and loved that she was the one offering something so delicate and important to the health of my business.
- Amanda Lampuri, Jane Rose Events

I totally get it...
In a world full of amateurs passing as "business experts” (but no results to back it up), vague advice, and sketchy programs, it's challenging to know who to trust. My why is simple: I love efficient strategy, and I love helping! My 15+ years of experience in successful business building + proven track record means you can rest easy knowing you're in good hands.
"I literally felt so overwhelmed and frustrated with where I was in my business..."
...but after talking with Brandee for only an hour - I received so much clarity. Not only do I have a goal I'm working towards, but Brandee was able to identify the real issue in my business that was holding me back. (One that I had no idea existed!) She will tell you like it is - but in a caring and supportive way. Thank you so much Brandee!
- Kathy Young, Rekindle Communications
"If you are feeling stuck in your business, make the investment and enlist Brandee's guidance."
After my Intensive with Brandee I gained the clairity I was seeking with my offerings. She helped me understand how to reach and speak to my ideal client. I was able to walk away with the extra confidence I needed to move the needle forward in my business.
- Sophia Jones, SBJ Virtual Solutions
"Please, run, don’t walk, and get yourself aligned with Brandee. I promise you won’t regret it."
Have you ever had that feeling where you are stuck. You KNOW you need to move forward, but no matter what you do, you are just not able to get there. That’s when you need to find yourself a mentor. I did, and it was the BEST business decision I have ever made. She was inspirational, driven, and provided me with such motivating, practical guidance around growing my team, bettering my sales techniques and streamlining my pricing and budget. I can happily say that I now own a six-figure planning business with several employees, and we are rocking the industry!
