Hi, I’m Terra, Business Strategist + Creator of The Business Map Method™.

Fasten your seat belts, folks.
My motto in life is: Fly or Die.

I love helping women entrepreneurs stop “winging it” and board the fast track to success.

My clients are able to soar to new heights—making their high-flying business dreams a reality, while I help them navigate any turbulence along the way.

You might be surprised to learn after reading all of my airline puns that I didn’t actually take a flight until I was 16 years old. Seriously. 

I grew up in a small town in Central Illinois, and never thought I’d leave. Maybe you can relate. My dad works for an airline, and I grew up next to an airport—listening to whir of planes above my home every single day. I even communicated with my dad in airport codes.

And yet, even with all of that flight inspiration, I still didn’t see myself soaring to epic heights. 

At least, not until I got on that first flight. 

It was a warm summer day. My uncle took me up in his small plane, and we only flew around our small town. I was familiar with every place we passed, but - that day - I saw things from a new perspective. 

Instead of looking up, I was finally staring down. I got to be on top of the world. 

And I realized that day that THIS was my passion. To create a community of amazing women… and that we could all catapult to the top, together. #FlyOrDie

So that’s what I did. 

Today, I’m not just the Pilot—leading women toward the business of their dreams—I’m the whole darn crew (there’s my Gemini peeking out again!)

I’ve worked with fortune 500 companies as a consultant and now proud to have worked with hundreds of women entrepreneurs (and counting) to help them fast-track their own five-year plans in less than one year.

When working with me, you can expect expert navigation… and you can expect that if you’re a little uncomfortable, I’ll grab you a blanket and a bag of pretzels, too. 

Here are 9 other things you can expect when taking flight with me:


I’m completely addicted to Chanel® brooches. I line-up my collection at home and stare at them any time I have a break.

I hunt new ones down like a rabid fan at a Beyonce concert.

I have this recurring fantasy that I’ll have a daughter-in-law one day (I have all boys, by the way) who will inherit my collection and love it just as much as I do. *Sigh*


If I don’t travel somewhere at least once a month, I’ll die.

That sounds very dramatic, but what is life without a bit of drama?


​​I can’t stop going to Starbucks™. 

It’s so bad, that my local Starbucks has a photo of my dog on the wall. 

I go through these virtuous bursts of trying to give it up, but I think I’m just going to fully embrace my Starbucks shame.


I was never a dog person until I rescued my sweet Aussie, Skylar.

Now I’m obsessed with her, and love her more than anything (sorry, husband.)


Speaking of husband (who I do love the most - I swear!) - he is the secret to my life balance.

Oh… he's 6'4" and I'm 5'1” (okay..with heels on.)


I have a mom who owns and operates a busy barber shop and a dad who (who now works for an airline) was a lead singer of a rock band in the 70's and 80's.

That means I have stories for days.


If you meet me in real life, I will constantly be applying lipstick, or lip gloss, or chapstick.

Dry lips are my nightmare.


I’m a closet soap opera freak. I shamelessly engage in online fan forums to discuss the latest episode, and secretly want to go to a General Hospital fan convention, but I haven’t worked up the guts. Yet.

My TV obsession also extends to other guilty pleasure shows, like Real Housewives, The Bachelor, and Hallmark Movies


I'm all about a good shortcut.
