It can be collaborative, innovative, playful, and equitable!
What if you could do business in a human-first way with a visionary community that shares those values and does the damn thing?
The thing being business and marketing that challenge the status quo, aspire to create a more ethical economy and support you in your full personhood. We’re talking about business without the buts of capitalism, white supremacy, and the patriarchy and WITH consent-based sales, non-manipulative marketing, and a community that recognizes how systems of oppression impact our businesses and lives.
Maybe you find yourself not vibing with most marketing and business content you see online...
Like writing copy that exploits people’s insecurities?
Like pushing back on people’s objections in sales calls?
Like separating business from injustices in the world that impact your colleagues and clients?
Like leaving no separation between yourself and your productivity?
By co-creating curiosity-driven and human-centered marketing and business practices, we can co-create a future where business owners can rest, play, and grow.
So we can…
Do business in a way that honors our full selves!
Be committed to growing our business without being drained by it constantly!
Create content that is energizing over polarizing!
Trust ourselves over how others say we SHOULD do things!
Increase our income without doing the most or exploiting others!

If you’re a business owner who sometimes feels stifled by business as usual and wants a place to start imagining and implementing a different way of doing business, we’d like to introduce…
A monthly membership for people who run businesses and want to challenge the status quo and create a more ethical economy through sustainable business practices, marketing without manipulation, and a global community.
Business Without the Buts was born from a podcast started by a sassy introverted-extroverted copywriting duo (Spoiler: Hi, it’s Cassandra and Monica!) figuring out how to create a more ethical economy through conversations about challenging the status quo, marketing with less manipulation, and creating action for more inclusive businesses.
We’ve created this monthly container to keep exploring this and to help other people who run businesses with a business and marketing foundation, so we can build examples of success without the capitalist sh*t.
We don’t have all the answers and we’ll continue to learn and make mistakes, but together we do have almost 20 years of experience marketing things while finding ways to rebel against traditional marketing practices and support business owners to pave their own way with their unique message and experience.
So instead of trying to get it right all the time, we’re passionate about creating a space to figure sh*t out!
In this membership, you can have the support and opportunity to figure out…
How to write copy that sounds like you, and sells, with the help of two copywriters.
Business and marketing strategies that feel good to you whether you’re just starting out or have been in business for a bit.
How you want to approach a holistic marketing strategy, outside of only social media and content.
Collaborate with a global community that shares some of your values and ambitions.
How to enjoy the process and disrupt some sh*t!
This is how the membership works:
For $99 a month, we’re so stoked to support you with:
A community platform on Mighty Networks to connect with us and other members, and explore ideas and processes.
Access to two marketing consultants and copywriters, plus our eyes on your copy and marketing.
Two hour-long office hours a week where you can ask questions and collaborate with us and the community LIVE.
Quarterly virtual retreats where we can reflect together and plan ahead to avoid doing the most.
A library of templates that we use in our businesses for sales pages, brand messaging, email sequences, and more!
Pre-recorded content where we’ll walk through how to start creating, testing, and refining how you want to do this business thing your way.
Details about signing up:
When you sign up you’ll get instant access to the Mighty Network community, templates, and the pre-recorded content. Then, weekly on XX day, we’ll send a reminder for the office hours so you can add them to your calendar.
You can cancel anytime, there are no contracts and no obligations. And we’ll never pressure you to stay or make it difficult for you to opt out.
As Brené Brown says, clear is kind and we’re all about transparency because that’s how we create a more ethical economy!
Meet Cassandra! (she/they) of The Quirky Pineapple Studio
Hey there! I’m Cassandra, the extroverted human in this duo. I’m a first-generation daughter of Vietnamese refugees, a Vietnamese-American, non-gender conforming, an immigrant living in Spain. I’m also a brand and visibility strategist and copywriter. I think business and marketing can be fun (duh!) and can be used to help historically marginalized folx build generational wealth and rock the system (read: BURN IT DOWNNN!)
Meet Monica! (she/they) of Unsocially Inclined
Your friendly neighborhood queer introvert, non-binary human, and mellow marketing consultant. I think that marketing and business ownership can be a rad time that doesn’t push aside who we are and can do better for all humans involved.
We are pumped at the thought of supporting you in challenging the status quo and creating a more ethical economy through sustainable business practices, marketing without manipulation, and a global community.
But we want to make sure you have everything you need to support you in this decision. So let’s break this down.
The Business Without the Buts Membership is for you if:
You're a business owner who is either, or an identity combination of, Queer, BIPOC, immigrant, refugee, neurodivergent, and/or active ally.
You’re just starting out in business or have been in business for a few years and want to be more intentional/conscious about human-centered marketing/business practices.
You love what you do, but marketing and self-promotion don’t come naturally and tend to feel meh to you.
The online version of success isn’t vibing with you, and you want to do things differently, but don’t know where to start.
You really want to commit to your business, but also don’t want it to consume you.
You believe Black lives matter, feminism should be intersectional, anti-racism is a lifelong commitment that includes all NBIPOC communities, in equal rights for the queer community, and imagine a future without capitalism, the patriarchy, and white supremacy.
The Business Without the Buts Membership is NOT for you if:
You’re looking for a step-by-step method to “plug and play” build a business.
You think business isn’t political and don’t believe our businesses have a voice in the fight against social and racial injustices.
You’re worried more about your intent than your impact in the world and for your clients and potential clients.
Your main goal is to grow your following on social media.
You’re more competitive than you are collaborative.
