A proven system for women business owners who are experts, to build value and achieve your business dreams
I wonder if you grew up like I did. I was a ‘good girl’. I generally did what I was told and obeyed my parents’ standards: don't make a noise and don't make a mess.
I was expected to grow up, get my education, get married and have children. Period, end of sentence. I wasn't raised to be a breadwinner, but I was raised to be ambitious, high achieving, disciplined and competitive. Striving for excellence was always top of mind.
It was clear to me if I followed the rules, exceeded expectations, and was a ‘good girl’, I would be happy and fulfilled. Life was a straight line.
As adults, we know that life is full of twists and turns. With a surprise divorce when I was 35 and three little kids at home, my life turned upside down. How could this happen when I did everything ‘right’?
I think of this as the Good Girl’s Dilemma™: always wondering ‘am I doing this right?’ Or ‘what am I doing wrong?’ ‘How do I know if I’m going in the right direction?’
I developed Your Hidden Advantage™ Accelerator for all the ‘good girls’ who feel unfulfilled in their business.
You grew up, got your education, built relationships, and became an expert in your field. You likely had a corporate career and worked for some good and some terrible bosses until you took a leap of faith to build your own business.
You love the work you do and care deeply about your clients. You’ve made it this far, delivering excellence and great results. Your clients sing your praises.
Running a business is hard. You need to learn new, complicated things. You need to (gasp!) sell. You need to figure out how to price, get people to understand who you are and how you help, find ready buyers, network productively, manage your client relationships, work efficiently, use technology effectively, handle your accounting, and manage people.
You need to set boundaries and expectations, have difficult conversations, innovate, and improve. You need to generate a healthy profit so you can do all of the above.
But here’s the twist…
As ‘good girls’, we are raised to think everyone else has ‘the answer’.
We’re not raised to trust our own instincts and intuition - or to create a business that operates on our own terms. We continue to believe there is some ‘cookie cutter’ approach that will magically solve all our problems.
We spend so much time and energy comparing ourselves to others, we lose sight of the real gifts we have. This ‘comparitis’ keeps us stuck, feeling embarrassed, exposed, and vulnerable.
We fall victim to other people's ‘proven success formulas’, thinking others have the ‘right’ answer. We live in an age of ‘gurus’ who keep telling us we’re doing it ‘wrong’.
There is no ‘right’ way to run a business – there is only your right way:
I’ve done it and I’ve helped countless women do the same. Since 2006, my mission has been to empower women business owners to design a more profitable future for their business by unlocking their hidden advantage.
Most programs focus on the money mindset OR the mechanics. This Accelerator does both, answering the ‘what, why, who, when and how’ of business success, to get better results faster.
A lot of people are teaching simplistic formulas and making big promises. I developed the SNAP System™ as a framework to approach your business differently and implement growth plans your way.
Formulas need a ‘right’ answer; the SNAP System™ framework offers a right answer for you.

In a former life, I was a political consultant and lobbyist. I loved it, it was fascinating, and I'd never do it again. But my experiences informed why I do what I do today.
My biggest struggle was that my revenue was tied to the election cycle, making my income erratic. If there were resources that could help me grow and scale my company back then, I didn't know how to find them and I didn't know who to trust.
I was a really good consultant but I had no sales training or experience with pricing. I felt frustrated, embarrassed, and afraid that I couldn’t make this work.
Ultimately, with a surprise divorce and three little kids at home, I closed my firm and gained years of experience as Director of Operations at a leading international school.
Those experiences motivated me to become that resource for other women business owners, founding The Block Group in 2006.
I bring a unique perspective, having experienced and solved many of the same complex issues we face as women, as leaders, as moms, daughters and sisters.
62% of women rely on their businesses for their primary income, yet 88% of these businesses generate less than $100,000 in annual revenue.
Having seen the same struggles time and again, I teach women how to shift their mindset and build their confidence to generate more revenue with less stress.
Managed effectively, change can become a productive force for growth. The Block Group harnesses that potential, turning roadblocks into building blocks for women-owned businesses.
