Build & Rise

An 8-week guided group program designed to get your brand from launch pad to takeoff.

By invitation only.


Because your business deserves a chance to thrive. And so do you.


Feel like you’re
second-guessing yourself?

If you’re like many entrepreneurs, marketing your business on your own can be isolating and exhausting.

  • You’re so busy serving clients that you don’t have time to build a consistent sales and marketing engine.
  • You worry your referrals and word of mouth clients won’t last forever.
  • You’re tired of wasting precious time and money trying to stay on top of the latest social media and marketing demands. 
  • You’d like some help to make all your marketing pieces work together. 

(If you’re nodding your head yes while smiling, just know you’re not alone. We see you!)

The struggle is real. Marketing on your own is the pits. 

So we created this group for you.

Energize your marketing with clarity, coaching, and connections

Armed with a clear plan, lit up by ideas sparked in community, and supported by your marketing coaches, you will finally find your marketing genius.

No more spinning your wheels. It’s time to put a solid marketing foundation in place for your brand.

In Build & Rise, you’ll get a coach on your side to help you stop overthinking, and nudge you in the right direction.

Together, we’ll craft the essential pieces that form the foundation for all your marketing. With our guidance and feedback, you’ll create your:

  • Brand story
  • One-liner (aka your elevator pitch)
  • Website home page wireframe
  • Lead generator
  • Email sales funnel, and
  • A simple plan to continue your marketing. 

By the end of our time together, you’ll have the foundation you need to magnetize your ideal clients and step forward confidently to grow your business.

Go from stuck to supported

Over the course of 8 weeks, we’ll coach you through a proven, foundational 5-part marketing system. Through live video coaching calls, hot seats, and online feedback, we’ll work with you step-by-step through a clear process.


Calls are Fridays at 9:30 AM Pacific Time, with two exceptions: Friday March 1 and Friday April 5 will be at 12:00 PM PT. (Marked by asterisks in the schedule below.) We encourage you to attend all sessions; replays will be available after each call.

What is StoryBrand and why should you use it?

StoryBrand is a proven framework for businesses to stand out in a noisy marketplace.

The framework is based on the 7 key parts of story that create curiosity and connection, which then leads to conversion.

We position your ideal audience as The Hero and you as their Guide. (Once you’ve seen how effective this approach is, you won’t believe how many agencies and companies miss out on this key tactic to create connection and interest.)


Why is this framework so effective and important?

Story is an effective method of communicating your value and compelling others to fall in love with your brand.

Business coaches, mentors, and authors Donald Miller and Dr. J. J. Peterson, who created the StoryBrand framework studied the structure and marketing of stories for decades.

They saw a gap between how movies tell stories that captivate their audience for hours… and how businesses fall short in telling their own stories.

They created the StoryBrand framework to help organizations tell activating stories like the entertainment industry (which leads to what is also known as Empathy Marketing).

Your coaches, Lindsay Carlson and Beth Carr, trained were hand-trained by Donald Miller and Dr. J.J. Peterson, and for the past 5 years have been honing their skill in this method.

There truly is no other method that’s as effective for communicating your value to magnetize your ideal client.

Hear from a few of Lindsay and Beth’s happy clients:

Back in 2020 during the lockdown, I had to close my retail spa boutique and pivot the skincare side of my business to an E-commerce.  I was really struggling with all the changes happening in my life and business.  Then, I found Beth Carr. She helped me get clarity on my brand message so I can communicate immediate value, connect with my ideal customers, and grow my business. I was able to realize 32% new revenue after launching our new online store within 60 days of launch. Since then, we grew our email list to over 4000 and significantly increased our email marketing open rate to 40%, with some improvements in our conversion rate.

I have been trying to crack this code for about ten years (true story) and think basically I did over the past 12 hours [in the StoryBrand Live Marketing Workshop].

Kevin L.

StoryBrand Small Group Coaching Participant

This team knows how to capture your voice, capture your story, and help get it out there in a really fun way. We laugh so much. But yet, we also work really hard. It’s probably been the best thing I’ve done for my business, it’s really helped me grow my business. So thank you everybody! 

Erin Duffy, Founder

Lindsay is so supportive and always willing to help. And the entire group was so lovely to interact with. The weekly presentation were always great, fill with things I could do right away. And the homework pushed me just enough and kept me accountable. It helped me define my strategy and then build out all the amazing tactics to really make my content amazing and on target. I loved it all!

Lindsay White

Podcast Host and Leadership Consultant, High Voltage Coaching, Previous Course Participant

I have been getting amazing feedback on the website and great traction as well, especially on LinkedIn. Thank you so much, Lindsay, for the beautiful site!

Sofia Arisheh, Founder

Upskill Consulting

After our initial meetings, I doubted anyone could ever make sense of our babble. Beth showed up to our sessions together like a magical fairy godmother who makes everything right and better, and she blew my mind. I could not believe she not only got it, but managed to clearly and succinctly articulate our story, message, purpose, and funnel, which is something we had been trying for 10+ years to do on our own (unsuccessfully). It’s literally like Beth showed us the light, and now we have more clarity, direction, and faith in where we are and how to get where we want to go. We have a trusted guide in Beth.

Mariel Freeman

Owner, Three Queens Yoga

Beth Carr was amazing to work with and helped me with not only creating amazing brand messaging but also guiding me through steps to help clarify what really needed to be said in my industry. Working with her was a fantastic experience and she is truly an expert at what she does. A copy and messaging queen. 

Chelsea Sanders

Lindsay always exceeds my expectations. She thinks of things I would not and addresses questions before they even come to mind. She is very good at giving encouragement while also helping people to be better at the current project.

Jeannie Henderson

Andrea J. Lee
