Before I founded Zelma Rose, I was a psychotherapist. Well, first a fine artist, then a psychotherapist, and now the crazy business woman you see before you today. While I no longer practice as a psychotherapist, I still love to wax intellectual about all things of the mind and offer psychologically minded business consultation and coaching to small business owners and companies through Lisa Anderson Shaffer Consulting. Last year, my business partner and I , Sarah Deragon of Portraits to the People started a blog called Awfully Grand. It was an experiment meant to chronicle the beginnings of our businesses. We no longer post daily on AG anymore, but our blog has grown into a consulting and business boot camp known as Success Squad & Mind Your Business.
Success Squad is a monthly meeting held for Makeshift Society Members in San Francisco to present current business challenges and receive constructive and creative feedback from peers. Sarah & I love facilitating this group and are always inspired by the challenges and solutions that members pose. As facilitators, we are constantly approached by fellow business owners with questions about how we run and maintain our businesses. So we thought, why not come up with a class? Mind Your Business is our newest venture and partnership and is designed to help women take their business to the next level. Wherever you are in your business, we want you to feel confident, free to take risks, and make your dream a reality. In short, we want you to MIND YOUR BUSINESS.
