I've been getting business advice from Colie for yearrrrrs and I am STILL learning so much from here. Each episode has me reaching for my notes, writing down some new epiphany, some new idea for my business. Colie offers so much value for business, big and small, and presents it all in an extremely accessible, straightforward, and hilarious way.

What listeners are saying

I'm a Disney-loving family photographer, and filmmaker turned Workflow and Automations Guru who helps creative service providers automate their sh*t, reclaim their time and get back to living!

With 10+ years in the creative space, Colie believes every creative deserves to build a business that is sustainable and profitable, and no one should quit their 9 to 5 only to work 24/7 [in their business].

The truth—automated systems can save us all from being overworked and overwhelmed.

Hi, I'm Colie.
