Welcome to my new site, the virtual manifestation of the inside of my entrepreneurial brain and creative heart — a place where you can leave your business-building insecurities at the door and inhale some real-talk goodness about the highs, lows, challenges, and thrills of starting your own business(es).
Here you'll find
authentic, professional advice about living your best “alien entrepreneur” life
candid commentary on the process of creating and running multiple businesses
a view into all of my fun special interests, corgi photos, and more!
And, as a bonus, you’ll find a healthy side-serving of mental health chatter: some honest truths about what it takes to “focus up” as someone living with ADHD and chronic health issues while balancing many, many passions, projects, and pursuits.
This will be fun. Thank you for growing with me.

Learn to Live Your Dreams
I’m a serial entrepreneur supporting and advocating for “alien entrepreneurs”: folks like myself who are neurodivergent, have health issues, or other lived experiences that make traditional business advice feel like it’s written for a whole other species!
Poke around and connect with me on my contact page to let me know what you’re working on, how I can help, and what’s resonating with you!
The standard business advice doesn’t work well for you since it assumes you are neurotypical, not dealing with chronic health issues, etc.
You’re looking for someone who’s honest about their experiences running a business. No Instagram perfect fluff, just real life!
You love dog pictures, BTS, Japan, Disney, or any of the other things I’m obsessed with!
Showing the Love
Meeting Carolee will change your outlook in life for the better. She’s got a mix of realness marked with an infectious positivity that makes you feel heard, empowered, and supported. Honestly, having an advocate like Carolee in your corner is like a wholesome mix of life-coach realness, mom supportiveness, and magical unicorn sparkles that make you feel like you could touch the stars. Did I mention unicorn sparkles?

Carolee is one of those people that you are just so thankful to have come into your life! We met online and I still anxiously await the day that we get to meet in person! She has always had this energy that is so incredibly uplifting, warm and loving and every time we connect I am reminded just how lucky I am to call her a friend.
