What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done? Launching myself off the old sky-deck of Toronto’s CN Tower, where I was suspended by razor-thin wires. Floating thousands of feet over the city, my heart was free– until security caught on and threw me out. Just don’t tell my parents!

What are you most proud of with your work at Business Bravery? Although I love seeing my creative ideas and copy come to life, nothing makes me more proud than seeing our clients skyrocket to success with our help.

What does the Business Bravery #bebrave message mean to you? Life is short. Grab it by the bits and go for it. That means feeling the fear and going for gold anyway. Even when you’re shaking in your boots– even if it’s not 100% perfect. It’s the only way to make your dreams come true, whether that’s making fat stacks of cash or booty-popping like Beyonce.

I’ve also attended meetups (business networking, travel etc.) alone, carrying the fear that I’d be standing around awkwardly not being able to start a conversation with anyone. Eventually, you just suck it up and start talking to people realizing that you’re not alone in feeling afraid and anxious.

Staci Mink

Staci Mink

Copywriter

What’s your Brilliance? What’s the first thing kiddos ask for when they start talking? “Tell me a story, Mama.” It’s what connects us all. It’s how we remember how we got here, where we are going, who we are. And while there are many, many amazing brand storytellers out there, I like to think I’m pretty dang brilliant at making sure your story is told exactly as you would. Just a little bit snazzier 😉 I’m a world-renowned copycat..it’s the little sister in me!

What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done? Advocating for my health. In the summer of 2014, I had a 5-hour brain surgery to remove a (thankfully benign!) tumor on my pituitary gland. Without that surgery & my insistence that doctors keep searching for issues, my 2 beautiful baby girls would not be possible! You know your body better than anyone else- even the pros!

What are you most proud of with your work at Business Bravery? The clients. I love hearing wonderfully creative, inspiring, brave minds talk through their strategies, passions, & love for the people they serve. There are some fearless game-changers in here, & I love being one small portion in their armor of awesomeness. 

What does the Business Bravery #bebrave message mean to you? I mean…I hate to say YOLO but…YOLO, right!? Sorry, I know I’m incredibly cool. I think there’s immeasurable power in taking your ideas out into the world, regardless of the fear or naysayers. If it’s on your heart & head, it deserves to be heard. You have a voice so many people are desperate to hear. Pinky promise.

Kayla Wells

Marketing COPY

What’s your brilliance? I think it’s connecting people… or being connected… I’m not really sure. Either way, I have a knack for finding the right people to fill positions. 

What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done? I’m not sure if it was brave, naive, selfish, or brilliant… but leaving corporate before I was ready. It’s worked out swimmingly but there are still so many unknowns and I’m the sole provider for my family. 

What are you most proud of with your work at Business Bravery? All of it I think. If nothing else I’m proud of my willingness to take feedback and roll with it. 

What does the Business Bravery #bebrave message mean to you? It means to get out of your own way and do the thing. So many times we fail to recognize our own ability to make things happen and we stay firmly planted in the middle of the path. I think #bebrave gives us permission to push through and keep reaching.

IT’S TIME TO

play big.

CRAIG GOLDBLATT
TRANSFORMATIONAL SPEAKER & IMPACT COACH

I would say absolutely without a doubt talk with Business Bravery. If you’re here at all, this is a sign that you are a good fit.  Really hear what they have to say. What they do is absolutely worth every cent that you put in and you’re going to get more than that out.  They have an awareness and perspective of the high end market to confidently guide people and say, yeah, just go. Stop overthinking it. Stop making it harder than it needs to be. Just do this. And what they do is just invaluable. Really.

Kathryn’s a ninja. She’s Superwoman. She just gets it. She spends time thinking about you as a client, she has amazing ideas, and she sees you, gets you and sees you more than you see yourself. It’s a huge trust process handing everything over to her, but I felt so safe with Kathryn and her team. In just three short months, my business has completely transformed. It’s been the most wonderful experience I’ve had in business.
