Hi, We're the Business By Design Team. Joy Morales Cress (Left), Phoenix Sagen (Center) and Katie Sevenants (Right).

We started this company to share with others what we've learned in business. With over 65+ years of combined business experience, we came together as friends and talked "shop" until one day we were all having breakfast together and said, "we really need to share what we have learned with others." That morning, Business By Design was born at Phoenix's breakfast table.

Phoenix, CEO has been in the travel space since childhood, coupled with a M.A. in Global Studies, she has had several successful businesses throughout her career. Building a 6-figure travel agency in less than 3 years, Phoenix thrives in growing business. More than that, she loves sharing what she has learned with others.
