Why a collective?

I have received strength, guidance and endless help from groups of powerful women.  They’ve taught me about self love, business, inclusion and so much more. I encounter people everyday who are living their dreams and changing the world. I created the GSD Collective to make it easy for you to find and learn from them as well. I have personally worked with and recommend all the women and organizations you see here in the GSD Collective.

Sara McLean

Sara McLean

Content & Strategy Consultant

Small businesses and entrepreneurs are my passion. I know firsthand the value and strength they give to communities, I know that small business owners do more for people and they do it with heart. I know the drive, dedication, and guts it takes to strike it out on your own and bring your idea to life.

I also know that it can be hard. You are great at some things, like your business product or service, but that running business has so many moving parts and pieces that you might not have the time or ability to master.

There are times where you feel stuck in the mud with your wheels spinning. Where you don’t know where to turn to because let’s be honest, Apple Maps never plans for spontaneous week long construction in a school zone aka while you might have a general idea of what to do… there’s a lot of wrong turns and traffic jams you can get caught in without the help of someone who’s been down this road recently.

I am that bump or tow for businesses and online entrepreneurs to get them unstuck and back on the road to success, and like the Waze app, I’ve been marking real life hazards that are coming your way to get you going faster and with less headache.

Whether it’s integrating storytelling in your email marketing, or building your community impact, or strengthening your brand, or guiding you through building a freelance business from scratch, or even just generating awesome and fresh ideas, I’ve got you.
