Business Growth Consultant
Described as “charismatic, offering sage advice to even seasoned entrepreneurs”,
Brette provides organizations and business owners the opportunity to tie their marketing efforts to true business results through her tailored approach and goal-specific strategies. Over the last decade, she has worked with best-selling authors, global retail brands, leading advertising agencies, start-up firms, and hundreds of other entrepreneurs who all had one thing in common – the desire for exponential business growth.
Known for providing “value beyond expectations”, Brette developed deep expertise in ROI-driven marketing strategies that allow business owners to grow their businesses sustainably while focusing their energies on what they do best. Contrary to traditional advertising strategies (which organizations spend tens of millions of dollars every year with little measurable impact), Brette’s approach is to develop a customer-centric plan that is focused more on CONNECTING with customers than SELLING to them.
Always drawn to entrepreneurship, Brette created her first business plan in elementary school. Since, she’s been obsessed with building businesses and brands. She holds a Marketing degree from Clemson University and is currently running her own consulting firm where she works with clients to help them navigate their business growth whether it’s how to launch a new business, market a new product, or overcome the challenges of an established organization.
I got into marketing because…
I’ve always loved business, I mean, I wrote my first business plan in elementary school. But I chose Marketing for the creative aspects and the fact that it applies to EVERYTHING. It’s not industry specific and is constantly changing.
My absolute favorite meal is…
Pasta and wine. On. Repeat. Seriously, I could eat it for every meal.
My favorite thing to talk about is…
Business and sports. I love when I meet someone who has a business idea but aren’t sure where to start. I can talk about that allllll day. That and Clemson football.
My guilty pleasures are…
Ice cream. Binge watching Netflix. Napping. Preferably all at the same time.
The thing that I’m most proud of is…
Being able to help entrepreneurs take their very first step into business with the Side Hustle Starter Kit. It was a total labor of love, but I’m proud to be able to help those who otherwise might not be confident enough to take the plunge.
My #1 business tip is…
Listen to your audience, because you don’t have a business without customers. It doesn’t matter how great your brand or product is, if it’s not connecting with your target market, you’re back at square one.
On my days off, I spend my time…
We travel a lot on weekends, but if we’re at home, we lay low. Maybe go out to dinner or take Mellie for a walk.
Someday I want to…
Own a horse farm (by the ocean, if Jamie has any say in it).
My travel bucket list includes…
Norway is #1 by far. Hawaii. Scotland. Brazil. Africa. You name it, I’ll go.
Clients inspire me when…
They are excited about their business. That’s the fun part – hearing their doubt at the beginning and slowly putting the pieces together where they feel they can achieve (and exceed!) their goals.
