What if your marketing was the path to building a more intentional business?



you are clear on what you want and how you can serve the market.

you have a plan that maximizes your effort and investment.

you make enough money doing work you love with clients who get you.

you are connected to the right people, supporting your growth.

Imagine a business where you do what makes your soul happy. 

It’s time to think differently about business.


Hi, I’m Krista Chapman –  a former event planner turned business and marketing strategist. Years back, I decided that the way we approached business was making me miserable – was making a lot of people miserable. Why couldn’t we change the culture and practices around business? Why couldn’t our work serve our soul instead of suck it dry?


A lot of business owners are told there’s one path to success, an antiquated, written by white men, guidebook to ‘success’. I said FTS and threw out the rules I grew up with to make my own.


I now help wedding and event business owners like you, build purposeful and successful companies. I have real conversations and ask uncomfortable questions that get to the root of the stuff. I gather smart business owners for thoughtful and results-driven retreats and workaway intensives. I use business & marketing strategies (and sometimes yoga mind tricks) to become an honest + direct, voice of reason for my clients. I think differently about business to help you build a better business.


It’s time we carve our own path.

We were unsure how to transition from our past to our future – from the company we’ve been, to the company we wanted to be. Path & Compass not only guided us, but they put a voice, vision and action to our thoughts, hopes and dreams.

Krista has the ability to view your company’s best interests with an outside perspective. She knows her stuff and has the insight to take you to the next level.
