Helping creative entrepreneurs build
their dream business with strategies
that are easy to follow and

 lead to more profitable, sustainable business growth

I'm Elena, a big dreamer, usually barefoot in a summer dress living the dream in Maui. Mama of two, with a third on the way and married to my sweetheart. For me, my business and life are bound together. Working for myself doing something I'm passionate about has given me the financial freedom to work from anywhere in the world and I love passing on my knowledge to those ready to learn. Helping entrepreneurs build a business based entirely on their personal goals and vision of success which will ensure they lead the life they’ve always wanted.

 I’m excited to use my experience in business and photography to help others navigate the right path to make their dream business a reality and show them easy to follow strategies that lead directly to long term business growth. Especially women who want both, a successful career doing something they are passionate about, and be a full-time stay at home parent. Being a mother and creative entrepreneur who gets to spend my days on something I am passionate about is strongly tied to my vision of success.

My big dream? Doing what I love, spending every day with my husband & raising our two kids on the island of Maui and helping as many people as I can by passing my knowledge onto them. I'm excited that you are one of those people.
