Meet your mentor...

  I'm Buffie!

I am a serial entrepreneur and the owner of the lifestyle brand, Brick Built. Over the past decade, I’ve built my clothing and home fashion brands while learning by doing. As you can imagine, I’ve uncovered a lot about what works and doesn’t work when starting a new clothing business or scaling an existing one. This experience is what I am here to share with you through my very first course, Branded from Scratch.

Since I was a kid, I have loved teaching people (ask my siblings about how I used to make them attend school at home, lol), and I have thought about starting this course for years. The time is finally here for me to share what I have learned over the past decade. I am on a mission to use my experiences to help entrepreneurs turn their dream of owning a clothing business into a reality while avoiding many of the setbacks I have faced.

This website, Build with Buffie, was born from proven processes I’ve developed while launching and scaling my business. I figured out the best way to brand my own designs so that I didn’t have to compete with Amazon and other clothing brands. I've also created a process for buying ready-made clothes in the US and China. I made over $500K in the first full year of operating my clothing business, and it has continued to grow every year since. After 10+ years of being in business, I’ve hired and grown an amazing team that frees up my time to do more of the things I love.

In hindsight, I wish I’d had a mentor or taken a course to help guide me through the early phases of building my company. This realization is my inspiration for Build with Buffie. I want you to benefit from what I have learned and have a smoother path to building a successful business.
