www.youneedbusiness.com is a business development, marketing and communications company based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.  Owned and operated by two cool women (we self-identify as cool, at least!), our goal is to help your small business take root, grow and flourish beyond your wildest expectations.

We get it.


As a small business owner, you face many challenges. On top of managing day-to-day operations, you also need to consider the future, build the infrastructure that supports your operations, navigate government and tax requirements, and deal with a seemingly endless amount of paperwork. Because you’re so busy doing that stuff, there’s no time to plan or dream – never mind actively market your business.

We hear you.


We truly understand the hurdles and victories of owning your own business. We know where you are and where you’ve been. Most importantly, we know where you can go if you put your heart into it. And yes, you bet – we can help!

Between us, we have more than 30 years of experience in all aspects of business-building. We’ve got the skills to back it up, too – marketing, graphic design, professional writing, web development, strategic communications, event planning – you name it, we’ve done it. We work smart and we work hard, guided by a strong work ethic and most importantly…

…we sincerely believe in the power of the entrepreneurial spirit. We’re guessing you do, too.

Now that you know something about us, let us tell you how our business development, marketing and small business support services can help your company grow!
