“I highly recommend her services to anyone needing a professional image/headshot.”
Recently, I found myself in need of a current headshot for a new opportunity. As I have been retired for a few years, I had largely culled my wardrobe of professional outfits and was unsure how or where to get the look I wanted. Barb made herself available to this challenge the following day and it was abundantly clear to me that she knew how to capture the message I wished to convey. She was efficient and knowledgeable and very good at pulling together a variety of “looks” in a number of different backgrounds. In addition, she was fun and easy to work with. I highly recommend her services to anyone needing a professional image/headshot.
“A big thank you to Barbara for putting together such a wonderful and successful event.”
I would like to thank Barbara for helping me to participate in my first market at the Tugboat Landing Artisan Market. I could not have asked for a better experience. The artisan market was very well organized and run. Barbara looked after all the details, and I am sure there were many of them. There was a great deal of advertising and presence on social media prior to the event which resulted in lots of customers looking for handmade, good quality Christmas gifts. I loved the venue, it had a friends and family gathering feeling to it and helped to create the atmosphere for lovely interactions with customers. I also enjoyed the exchange of experiences with other vendors. I even picked up a few good tips for my future market events. Again, a big thank you to Barbara for putting together such a wonderful and successful event. I’m really looking forward to participating again.
“She is an inspiration and a fountain of excellent advice for anyone taking this journey.”
I met Barbara in December 2018 when I was lucky enough to have a small table reserved for me at the Tugboat Landing Artisan Market which she was organizing. It was a successful market and I felt encouraged to try and sell my bags/relaxation eye pillows locally. In early January I had a surprising call from Barbara, offering to give me some material she felt I would put to good use. We had a fantastic chat about how to promote and sell my crafts. I think I started to panic when she talked about being on Instagram, setting up a name, logo and making product information sheets before I could try and sell anything. That panic slowly subsided over the next week or so, with her excellent advice and reassuring support. Barbara introduced me to 2 local East Vancouver store owners who have started to sell my products. Without Barbara’s support and amazing knowledge of how to start up a business and how to promote that business I know I would never have got this far. She is an inspiration and a fountain of excellent advice for anyone taking this journey
“I would highly recommend Barbara to any business or individual that needs mentoring and help in expanding their business.”
I had the great fortune of meeting Barbara Borchardt at a time when Threaded Needle Design was just starting out and looking for business opportunities for our home decor products. Barbara was able to help us by introducing us to a local home decor boutique that specializes in exactly the type of product we produce. The results have been beyond our expectations and we are now getting many repeat orders from this boutique.
Barbara’s extensive knowledge of the Vancouver Market scene and her valuable connections within the community have proven to be invaluable. Dealing with her is always a positive and pleasant experience. This woman is amazing! I would highly recommend her to any business or individual that needs mentoring and help in expanding their business.”
“Can’t Say Enough About Consult CreatEve”
“I am a maker and like most artisans, not good at blowing my own horn. I didn’t have the first clue about how to launch my business – I was safely ensconced in my little creative world hoping somehow people would find me. I was fortunate to have connected with Barbara Borchardt, of ConsultCreatEve, very early on in this journey of launching my jewellery business and she walked me through the steps I desperately needed to unveil my art to the world.
I was overwhelmed by everything I needed to do. Social Media was a scary, unknown entity to me! How do I blog? What should I Tweet? What are hashtags and how do I use them properly? How do I get followers on Instagram and Facebook? Barbara took me under her wing, leading me through the myriad of tasks involved in getting the word out there. She suggested topics for posts, wrote blogs for me, took the most incredible photos (which if you don’t know, is a significant challenge with jewellery) and ultimately connected me with retail stores where I now sell my wares.
I can’t say enough about Barbara’s talents and would highly recommend the services of ConsultCreatEve.”
