Hey there, I’m Em!

I’m an entrepreneur, marketing and branding expert, educator, and Mama to 3-year-old Reese (aka Roo-Roo) and 5-year-old Will (aka YaYa).

After working in fashion up in Manhattan for 10 long years, I left the corporate world behind to pursue my dream of starting my own business and spending more time with my babies.

With my first business I found myself thrust into the world of social media and marketing and I struggled SO much with showing my face on my feed, figuring out how to use Canva, knowing what to post, and everything in between.

I decided to make it my mission listen, and learn, and nail down fool-proof content creation systems to make the entire process of making content much, much easier so that I could stop feeling anxiety-ridden about my content!

I started The Creative Bodega to help busy, creative female entrepreneurs look more put-together everywhere they hang out. 

The ultimate goal? Get more eye balls on your content and attract more of your ideal clients.

I take a unique approach to online education and I pride myself on making my courses fun, un-intimidating and super engaging.

Are you ready to start saving time on content so that you can spend more time in your garden, with your kiddos, or simply in other areas of your business that light you up? 

I feel you...and I want to help.

Must-know course details...

Our founding member pre-sale lasts from April 5th - April 9th ONLY. After that, the price of this course will increase forever!

We officially kick off on Monday, May 10th, and ends on Monday, June 7th.

New modules for this course will be released weekly on Monday mornings. This is to make sure you work at a measured pace that fits into your schedule!

This course is taught entirely in Canva Pro. If you're not quite ready to invest in a Canva Pro account, I recommend signing up for a free 30-day trial the day before our course begins!

After purchasing you will receive an email from me with "next steps." But, you will NOT receive full access to the course until May 10th when the course begins!​

Materials Needed: Canva Pro, a Facebook account, and lots of coffee. I KID! I'll take it easy on you I promise.

You'll be backed by a Risk-Free 7 Day Money Back Guarantee if the course isn't all that what you thought it would be.

ALRIGHT, I'M IN!

“Canva and social media felt really overwhelming, until I met Em!"

"Canva was one more thing to try to figure out in order to do social media “right.” Em broke it down into simple steps and gave me the confidence to create content that aligns with my brand and connects with my audience in a fun new way.”

Erin R.  ‣  Erin Ruppert Fitness & Nutrition

But Em, what if I'm not creative?

I really believe we're all creative, we just need a little push in the right direction. I'll be giving you step-by-step instructions on how to do things like nail down your brand colors and choose your fonts. You'll also be posting your work in our private FB community for my feedback and direction!

Ok, but what if I don't have Canva Pro?

NO problem! You will, however, need it for the course since it's taught entirely in Canva Pro. So my recommendation is to sign up for a free 30-day trial the day our course begins on May 10th. 

Alright, what if I already have brand colors and logos?

That's fantastic! This course teaches way more than just branding. It also breaks Canva down and makes sure you're utilizing all of its features to the fullest so that you can get super organized, streamline your content creation process, and save TIME! 

Last question! Why is this better than just figuring Canva Pro out myself?

If you follow me on Instagram you know I'm constantly posting Canva and branding videos, tips and tricks. Yes, you could just take that or YouTube information, but imagine having it ALL in ONE place at your fingertips. This course will give you every Canva hack, branding direction, and design tips out there in a streamlined easy to understand format.
