Branding Without the Big Bucks

You’re busting your butt to get your small business off the ground. Maybe you have clients already, or maybe it’s just an idea that you’re trying to map out. Either way: it’s not online yet. And you know it needs to be. I don’t have to sell you on that, because you understand the importance of an online presence. But you’re scared of the price it costs to create a custom website and investing in a custom logo freaks you out. But you know you have to do it.

Hello, hi, we’re totally meant to be. I’m your Small Business Bestie. I’ve been a bargain shopper my whole life and I get where you’re coming from. You don’t want to be slapped with monthly fees to host your site, and you want something more than the crappy pre-made online websites. But who has the money for that?

I’m here to help you navigate through the craziness of it all. I’ll help you build your brand on and offline without the whole custom (and costly) thing. I’m your go to girl for finding ways to save money without cutting corners.

More than that: we’re besties now. Not just friends. Friends will tell you what you want to hear, but besties will keep it real. You can expect me to be candid AF about everything, starting from our very first (complimentary) 30 minute call.

And look, you don’t have to be a female or a creative business owner or a New Yorker to work with me. I don’t collaborate with people based on their products or services or favorite colors. I work with people because they’re passionate about what they do.

About Me

I'm your Small Business Bestie, providing you with resources that don't break the bank. Learn more about my experience and my style.

Cynthia R.

I didn’t even know where to begin, and she designed an action plan that has taken me from start to launch. It took about 10 minutes for her to change my life. I know it’s scary; but Larisa’s got your back.

Jessica H.

Larisa's work as a brand strategist and as a virtual assistant is consistently top quality, but her true value is in her creative, thoughtful insights towards the "big picture" of planning a business.

Cynthia R.

Larisa is so genuine and motivating. She’s the master of goal setting and holds me accountable to these deadlines in a positive way that always reminds me that I’m working towards my dreams.

Taylor P.

She's someone who can motivate you, force you to make your dreams into a reality, and will call you out whenever you're not dreaming big enough. I'm grateful to have her on my team.

Jessica H.

Larisa cuts right through the nonsense and helps you focus on exactly what needs to happen next. When I feel lost, overwhelmed or need to find clarity in my business, she is my first call.
