Welcome! I’m so happy you’ve stopped by to check out The Little Mustard Seed Company.
I’m a native Californian, who admittedly loves sushi, coffee, authentic Mexican food, dogs, cooking and watching Mad Men. I’m a mom, wife, and now a certified ‘southerner’ who is adapting to living in Georgia with my little family. With years of managing people and projects in corporate fundraising under my belt, I decided to give working for myself a try. So, I started in a virtual assistant position which propelled me to figure out what I really loved to help people do. It was my first ‘entrepreneurial’ aha! moment.
In 2010 Lisa Marcia Consulting was born and I did everything from data entry, web design, and social media management. I even planned events coast to coast. Then in 2012, it was time to rebrand and focus my efforts on design, writing and social media strategy.
The Little Mustard Seed Co. was the answer to my own question, “What do I love helping people do?” I truly enjoy helping people GROW their businesses. Simple as that. While there are many elements to growing a business, The Co.’s focus is on message branding, design, and strategy. Being able to help someone’s vision come to life gets me enthusiastic. I couldn’t pick a better dream job.
I like referring to The Little Mustard Seed as ‘The Co.’ Sounds pretty official, right? The Little Mustard Seed Company was founded on core values I hold professionally and personally. Those values overflow to our work ethic and directly to the clients.
What’s in a name, right? While choosing a name for my company, I struggled immensely! There were so many things I wanted to convey in a tiny name. Then it hit me. The mustard seed is the smallest seed, yet when it fully matures, it blossoms into the largest garden plant. It’s branches are strong and structurally, it’s deeply rooted. The analogy in life and in business was perfect. The Little Mustard Seed Co.’s goal is to help small business owners grow their businesses with a strong purpose, rooted in creativity and some TLC.
