Hi, I’m Carlana Charles.
I provide creative solutions, practical advice and timely support for female entrepreneurs focused on building businesses and brands with heart and intention. What can I do for you today? Maybe some revamping on your blog or improvements to your small business brand or website? Or maybe you are thinking of launching a business and not sure where to begin. Perhaps you need a bit of help promoting your business online or need a hand coaching, or one-to-one mentoring. Whatever your business need, I’m here for you. So let’s talk.
In 2007 I left my last job and launched my business. Everyone said I shouldn’t. I had a good job, was making good money, and I had allowances and yearly travel opportunities. But I felt like I had outgrown that stage and space in my life.
I wanted to try my hand at meeting a need in the market I felt was under-served. If it didn’t work, I could always try for a new job. I had to give my dream a chance. Fast-forward to 2019, I’m still here, doing the work I enjoy, helping businesses do their best work and put their best face forward. 12 years in full-time self employment – what a journey! In spite of the ups and downs, I have no regrets.
I believe we all win when more women start businesses and stand in leadership roles. It matters not if that business is a one-woman shop or multinational corporation. The point is that women are making strides in empowering themselves economically and standing in positions of leadership.
At Carlana & Co. I help women share their talents, skills, and ideas with the people their work matter. I do this by providing them with the support, tool, and resources that will enable them to focus on the core of their business and do their best work.
