Learn with Pickles
A Jar of Pickles is a side hobby business I started with $200 that eventually grew to 6 figures in revenue while I worked full-time jobs in UX design and marketing. I have learned so much running this small business of mine which I’m starting to share here. Join me as I grow my small business.
I love talking to creatives starting small businesses and seeing such awesome products that come from these new companies, so I wanted to offer a more structured format for sharing my experience and resources. I have previously mentored UX bootcamp students through Thinkful (a program I graduated from), as well as mentored interns at various companies in my career!

Creative Coaching Calls
Ongoing support through your business journey
I'll help you strategize, prioritize, and grow your small business in a way that works for you. No two people are the same, which means no two businesses are the same— and by working 1-on-1, we get to shape your own path to growth with the priorities that are important to you. We'll meet on Zoom 1x a month and voice chat on weekdays.
Please read the full description here, at this link.
Have questions? Book a chat with me or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you'd like to be notified when the next sessions open up, please fill out this form here.
*Disclaimers: I do not give refunds on coaching sessions. If life circumstances change, please let me know and I'll do my best to accommodate your time to another part of the year.
"Coaching Calls were informative and valuable for my business growth and I highly recommend Kirstie as a business mentor. The suggestions and feedback given were tailored to my business specifically, which I really appreciated. Her thoughtfulness and experience made for super effective learning. Hire Kirstie! You won't regret it."

"I love that we have discussed both short and long term strategies. This has resulted in me experimenting more, allowing more time for the long term strategies so that they can be better evaluated, and removed the pressure of immediate results. Although our products are different, Kirstie’s answers and ideas have worked for my business."
Cady, CMS Supply Co
"As well as providing personal insights, Kirstie took time to prepare for our calls (e.g. looking at our IG and Etsy each time before to see our progress) to ensure she were prepared to give sound and valuable advice and feedback. Many things have changed since we started our calls -so many big steps have been taken and I can’t be more excited and thankful. "
