After years of being the person that works a 9-5, who never misses a friend’s birthday, who is the go-to person for your family, who shows up day after day for everyone else and OH, by the way – also has a business on nights and weekends, you are so damn tired.
You’re tired of people praising you for how much you do when you know that there has to be a better way.
And oh man, you’re so damn tired of people saying to you, “____, you’re such a boss babe!” If you hear one more person call you a Girl Boss, you won’t even try to hide your eye rolls anymore. Because for you - it’s more than that.
You are a business woman who handles her shit. But while everyone is busy admiring you, you know there has to be a better way.
Tell me if this sounds familiar:
-You can’t remember the last time you used the word “no” when someone asked you to do something.
-You have random pieces of papers, sticky notes, and journals tucked into your drawers, purses, and piled up on your desk that help you stay “organized”.
-You have every app that you know you should have but you don’t even use them.
-You have part-time help, but you feel like it causes more stress because they are always waiting for you to tell them what to do.
-You started your business because it was fun but now you want to turn it into some serious dough.
…and here’s the last one –
You tell people you run a business, but you almost feel like you’re lying because you know that your business is running YOU.
Your life is no longer your own.
And this love/hate relationship you have with wanting to be all things for all people has got to go. You can’t ever achieve the levels you dream of if you’re constantly burying yourself with the priorities of other people.
Say Sayonara! Adios! Ciao! to those time suckers that are masked as opportunities.
‘Cause you may be fooling everyone else, but you ain’t foolin’ me.
And that feeling in your stomach right now tells me that you’re not fooling yourself either.
Let me show you exactly how to take the reins of your business and support the life that you want to live.
A life that allows you to run a profitable, sustainable business that you call the shots in every day.
Because once you have this step-by-step plan to take control of your business, you’ll also know the secrets that will allow you to:
Go all in and make a full-time living as a business owner and leave your 9-5 forever.
Replace your burn out with passion fuel and show up every day with confidence and focus.
Empower yourself by attracting the right clientele.
Communicate more effectively with your potential clients, clients, and team members
Strategically work in your strengths and delegate to others

This step-by-step, business productivity online program will share with you exactly how to shift your mindset, set boundaries, build rock solid processes, customize your message in order to strategically grow your revenues and Get Shit Done!
In 2011, I had just wrapped up my biggest year yet.
I had worked with 250 clients.
I was “killing it” in my head.
But on paper -I was the definition of a Hot Mess. I thought being called a robot was a compliment. I had forgotten what it was like to get more than 2-3 hours of sleep a night. I couldn’t even tell you what day of the week it was, I just knew I had shit to do. I was running on fumes, passion, and determination. And the worst part, I made $0 dollars that year.
In fact, I actually lost over 6-figures. I personally lost over $100K in the year that I was hired by more people than ever. Yes, I had money in the bank but once we got into it, my business had me by the proverbial balls. And I don’t want to see that happen to another person ever again.
I know what’s possible for you, because I once was you.
And it didn’t come down to believing in myself. Because girlfriend, let me tell you, if I’m going to bet on anyone, I’d double down on me any day of the week, 24/7. It came down to - I didn’t know, what I didn’t know.
And when I found out, guess what the result was…
I DID BETTER.
My business grew.
In just 2 years, I went from the woman who lost 6-figures in a year to transforming my business and having a 300% increase in profits. I learned how to escape the nightmare I created for myself and become an 8-figure business owner working with just 30 clients a year.
So, what if you could spend less time in the land of sleepless nights and, instead, harness your talents into building a business that gives you the ability to create freedom and flexibility in your life?
It’s time to start living that Less is More Life and GSD Academy will show you how!
"Angela, I thought I had it together; I was in business for 20+ years and we did well. The business was profitable, and I thought we were making good money. You helped me identify best business practices in ways that I had not seen before. Helping me hire the right team members (and let some go), showing us how to go paperless, and how to back up our documents, formatting our apple products was a game changer for my business and personal life. We now do all proposals in the field, all client files can be accessed from anywhere, my team and I work less and we are more profitable than ever. Thank you for everything!"
Knowing how to shift your mindset, the exact same way I had to in order to start seeing a real change, I call it "potty train your brain" is the first step.
One of the biggest time sucks is saying "yes" to everyone & everything to make others happy. I will show you how to say no to the wrong things.
