HI, I'M BRITTANY GRIGGS!
I'm the creative chick behind the number crunching and excel sheets. My mission is to help simplify a scary part of doing business that's probably holding you back from really crushing it in your creative small business - NUMBERS, MONEY AND FINANCES.
FROM CORPORATE AMERICA TO PHOTOGRAPHER
I always wanted to be a photographer growing up but, when push came to shove, I decided to go to college for something more "practical" (so I thought).
I'm the proud owner of an Accounting and Finance degree that led me to a few years in the Corporate Finance world - think excel, lots of numbers, analyzing and reporting. Secretly, I love those things but the Corporate setting wasn't for me.
I wanted to create, work with people and build my dream of a photography business. So in 2012, I left Corporate America to start Brittany Lauren Photography (now Brittany Lauren Creates) which quickly grew into a busy, successful studio.
AND NOW A CREATIVE FINANCIAL BUSINESS COACH
I thought everyone loved numbers as much as I do. But as I got to know more creatives, just like you – photographers, videographers, graphic designers, copywriters, coaches – I quickly learned it isn't everyone's cup of tea.
I felt a huge obligation to help serve you, the creative small business owner, through simple education and tools designed to help you understand your money minus all the over-your-head, complicated, snooze-worthy jargon.
And that's how Simply for Creatives was born - to help you make money a walk in the park for your business so you can focus on more of the fun stuff (aka - your creative genius-ness)!
Being an artist and creative person my whole life, I naturally struggled with how I was going to start my own business when I had no business background.
To say that working with Brittany was the best thing I ever did for my business is an understatement. I wouldn’t have a business without her!

As a graphic designer, my passion for creating comes easy. But figuring out what I need financially for my business and working for myself was overwhelming - until Brittany!
Her tools are made for the creative. Brittany took the fear out of learning about money and finances - things I knew were important but, until now, were unobtainable.

SO LET’S PUT AN END TO YOUR MONEY MADNESS TOGETHER!
I know the struggle is real and I'm ready to dive in with you to sort it all out. You need a clear, profitable plan to reach your business goals and money systems in place to keep you organized. As your business financial coach, I help you with those very things.
