Consultancy for ethically-minded solopreneurs, small businesses and startups.
As long-time entrepreneurs and freelancers with multi-faceted backgrounds, we are champions for those looking to share their unique imprint with the world. We offer a boutique-like agency feel that nurtures and elevates success. We cultivate ideas that lead to tangible actions, promotes creative flow, and support for scaling. Our signature intake process delves into our client's personality and goals. We then design systems that can be automated and enables a simple consistency. We help you feel confident and instigate thinking outside of  the box, especially when sharing your brand message with your audience.

Our Entrepreneurial    Meet Cute

As entrepreneurs, we all have a Hero's Journey. In Norse Mythology, there is the labyrinth, which is much more like the entrepreneurial journey, with twists and turns. Endurance and unwavering focus are essential against all odds.

There are approximately 6,500 kilometres (4,040 miles) between The Netherlands, Renske Ensing of Simple's home, and Canada, Emma Norton of EGOxLESS's native land. How could our paths cross in this modern pandemic era? Why a virtual networking community, of course.

In the entrepreneurial labyrinth, there can be parallel paths (and tunnels and chambers) that eventually come to a mirror. Perhaps you see David Bowie at this point, but in the case of Renske, whose focus was Productivity, very left-brained and Emma's Communication, in the right, it was the recognition of duality.

Coming into alignment with one another was that missing key to professional balance, and sometimes, even as solopreneurs, we are better together.
