Live Done-With-You Support
for building your business

How We Build Businesses

You’re building a business and there is so much to do, learn and test out. We know exactly how stressful, lonely and exhausting this point in your business can be. From product & pricing strategies, to brand development, audience building and marketing, we know what it’s like to try and do this all on your own.

So many courses and celebrity entrepreneurs will try to sell you their quick fix, their one-off solution to growing your business quickly and at the end of it you’re left with more debt, a burnt out plan and still wondering how to put it all together.

Which is why we created Create the Rules Catalyst, a full-service, live, Done-WITH-You support system that not only gives you as much 1:1 and community-led support that you need, but over 20 modules of business growth basics that gets you easily organized and moving forward in building the business that not only fuels you, but your team and the communities you serve.

Be In the Room

Hello! I am Marissa Loewen, Founder and Lead Strategist at Create the Rules. Over the past three years we have been helping business owners grow, scale and thrive through our signature Done-WITH-You support system for impact driven entrepreneurs, change makers and culture creators. We saw there was a big gap in the coaching, mentoring and online course industries in actually helping business owners get their ideas to implementation.


Small business owners have to wear all of the hats when it comes to building their business and we know that many experience instances of Executive Dysfunction, Imposter Syndrome, Analysis Paralysis, and being overwhelmed with ALL OF THE THINGS. We also know that Occupational Loneliness is a very real issue impacting entrepreneurs.

So we designed a virtual platform with personalized support and a community of business owners in the same stage as you are.

Nourishing the Risktakers

Using a combination of on-demand learning and live, personalized support, we help impact-driven business owners get coaching, mentoring and implementation support right in the tools and tactics you choose for your business.

Tailoring great ideas to fit your business to help you build your business, fully supported.
