In the early days, the hustle to get things going was exhilarating. 
Those quick wins were a burst of energy.
“YAAS- I’m really doing this!” 

But over time, the constant pressure of *all the things* became exhausting.
“Seriously, what the heck am I doing?”

Your sight was set on freedom, but this whole *be your own boss thing* feels way less like an island getaway and more like treading water in the deep end.

Doing work you love–
on your own terms

you’re a self-taught,
self-made creative entrepreneur

Wait, what was the whole point of this again? 

Rewind the tape.


Somewhere along the way, you looked up and clients were calling the shots, your business had taken on a life of its own, and you’re left with the crumbs.

When gut-check decisions aren’t cutting it anymore, 
That’s where I come in.  

Because, no one wants to be that business on Shark Tank that fumbles over their numbers.

You’ve landed in the right place if
you’re overworked and underpaid. 

While you’re not exactly sure how to dig your way out, you do know–

something's gotta give.

I teach creative small business owners how to arrange business numbers in a visual way that tells a story.

That way, you can quickly understand what they're telling you, can pinpoint where things are off-track, make simple tweaks, and get back to doing your creative thing.

… and still make it to happy hour for margaritas with friends.

Together we dial up what’s working & dial down or eliminate what isn’t so you can gain momentum and you actually enjoy your business.

I’m Kristy Duke, and over the past decade, I’ve gone from being a live event painter to becoming a total numbers nerd. 

In 2010 when I started my first business as a professional artist, it became clear that I was more drawn to the business and operations side of things than the artistic.

I was all about the sales calls and the systems, and could take it or leave it when it came to painting for clients.

I know. I know.
It's usually the other way around.

That left brain/ right brain split- led me from painting gigs at an event venue to joining their business management team. As part of the team, I worked directly with an analyst that used visuals to illustrate numbers and stats.
