OUR APPROACH TO BUSINESS & LIFE
At Curate Concierge, we are looking to create a new way of doing business
I found the traditional job market didn't provide what I needed, so I broke out on my own. But, as an entrepreneur, traditional business advice didn't seem to apply to a freelancer model.
Many of my fellow freelancers had left their workplaces because they weren't getting their needs met as employees, and decided to try it on their own.
I heard stories of burnout, gross violation of rights and feeling of the diminished value of their labour for companies that weren't giving enough back.
For my clients, many of them had left behind these same toxic cultures to start their own businesses and didn't want to recreate it in their own relationships and operations.
All of them had this in common - they wanted a successful, profitable businesses, but they also wanted to sustain themselves, feed their families and change the world - while NOT burning the fuck out. This brought very different needs for their growth.
I have been building businesses and finding freelancers get flexible work since 2015, and what I eventually realized was this - together, we were building a different kind of business for these owners.
Time, energy and self worth were forefront.
Talent, meaning and integrity are measured equally with financials.
Real human costs and social impact are central in decisions.
NO is a complete sentence.
'I don't want it' is an unchallenged notion.
Not only do we approach HOW to build businesses differently, we know that the choices we make about WHO we work with and autonomy over HOW we work can create an ever greater impact.
We can use our collective power to take a stance against exploitative business methods.
Using like-minded and flexible service providers like freelancers, Fractional Strategic Officers to get the strategic, professional support to grow your business without reverting to an extractive model of profit creation.
Together, we are creating an ecosystem of fair value exchange and commitment to everyone getting paid equitably for their work.
We can say goodbye to the hyper-productivity pace and 'old club' culture of doing business. We don't need it. And quite frankly,
We know that there is a better way. We're already doing it.
We can scale and operate businesses that are profitable and sustainable.
We can create businesses that are meaningful drivers of social change.
We can influence policy and break down structural barriers for everyone.
We can do business in a way that recognizes the emotions, attention, energy and relationships that go into this hard, amazing life that we live as entrepreneurs.
We can build a new economic reality for ourselves and others.
Because you deserve to have a business that works for you- even when the current system doesn't. Because no one is free until all of us are free.
Your business CAN sustain you, transform your life and liberate you - and others. And it can be done in the way you want it.
I am here for THAT.
we are here to burn
that shit down
We are a queer owned and womxn-led, feminist organization and our mission to help empower womxn and make a positive impact in our community. We believe in intersectional, inclusive, collective and transformational feminism that addresses ALL systems of oppression.
We recognize the structural inequity built and perpetuated through traditional hyper-capitalist business practices. For both ourselves and our clients, we approach business development through a feminist lens and anti-oppression stance.
We are advocates for empowering pink collar workers, safer, inclusive workspaces, pay equity and flexible work options.
Fundamentally, we unequivocally support all womxn, BIPOC, LGBTQ2S+, single working parents, neurodiverse people, sex workers, those with accessibility needs, and all other others marginalized by colonialism and it’s present-day legacies.
We unapologetically believe Reproductive Rights are Womxn's Rights, Trans Rights are Human Rights, Black Lives Matter, Every Child Matters and stand for the basic rights and dignity of all.
