Build your business by playing to your real strengths.
This 3 month mentorship meets you where you are to work out how best to take your business to the next level.
Get a second pair of eyes on every area of your business and a completely confidential safe space in which to discuss exactly what’s working and what’s not.
Your business needs to be financially, emotionally and energetically sustainable, and to achieve that you need to be paid enough to be profitable; you need a reliable stream of ideal clients; and streamlined business systems.
I coach women who feel their business has turned into a demanding job, complete with long hours for not enough pay. I help them create a simple and sustainable business model, so they can finally enjoy the freedom that comes with being their own boss.
Together we'll look at:
how to offer your clients even greater value than you do already (and how to charge for that higher value)
how to leverage your strengths (empathy, listening skills, honesty, intuition, relationship-building) to move you from dreading sales and marketing to giving you exceptional skills in both areas
how to streamline the back-end of your business
Over the three months of the mentorship, we'll most likely focus on three main areas:
Clarifying your core message
Authentic marketing, based on relationship-building
Simplifying and streamlining your business systems
Where our emphasis falls will depend on your own unique combination of needs, circumstances, previous experience, inner blocks and existing skill-set. This is the benefit of working 1:1 - you don't need to waste time going over skills you already have in order to benefit the rest of the group, you get to go at your own pace and focus more on any areas that are particular bugbears for you. You'll get as much support as you need to grow your business as much as possible within the three months.
Trying to tackle any one of these issues on its own doesn't take account of how much they're all interwoven, so tends to be ineffective. This is the reason to spend several months digging in to working on all of them in concert.
This whole outline of what a mentorship could look like is simply an example - if you do a free consultation with me then, assuming we both think we'd be a good fit, I will take everything you tell me about where you're at now and what you most need, and combine that with my skills and experience to produce a mentorship proposal that's completely bespoke - and which might therefore look noticeably different from this example. However, since I personally won't even consider signing up to work with someone when they don't reveal in advance any of the details of how that would work or what it might cost, I like to provide my own potential clients with some better information to go on...
What do you come away with?
A new business strategy, fully in alignment with your values and your big picture vision for how you want your life to be
Customer research skills to ensure that you're solving your dream clients' top-of-mind urgent problems
Brand new co-created copy: sales pages, a website rewrite, brand voice strategy to reflect your new business focus
A new marketing strategy, based on building aligned strategic partnerships to grow your audience
Step-by-step action plans, support in the execution of these plans, and heaps of accountability
When can we start - and what will it cost?
Well, first of all, we'll need to have a free consultation call to work out if this is a good fit overall.
If it is, your investment for three months of business strategy, mentoring, training and copywriting support is £1,500 (payment plans are available).
What kind of support is included?
We'll start with a comprehensive onboarding session, to assess exactly where your business is at the moment and to create a plan to ensure that you get the absolute maximum out of your mentorship for the next six months. We'll work on goal-setting and tracking so that you make as much progress as possible, and we'll set this action plan in the broader context of the life you want to be living.
Then you'll get one private coaching session every 3 weeks.
In between sessions you get unlimited email and text access to ask me anything, so you don't have to stay stuck on small details. You can also request extra Zoom check-ins if there's something time-sensitive you need to discuss, or if you want to have a quick mini-session ahead of a big sales call or other significant event. My aim is for you to feel that you have a 24/7 thought partner who is dedicated to helping you grow your business.
You also get access to a private shared Google Drive so we can collaborate, share documents and track your progress.
I will work with you to co-create new sales pages and to tweak the whole of your existing web copy to reflect your new business focus. This copywriting and brand voice strategy work is essential for you to command higher rates for your services.
You can also take advantage of my copywriting support with a weekly option to submit your newsletters, blog posts or other copy for my review and comments.
You'll get all the support, brainstorming, accountability and guidance you need to get into action and start transforming your business.
Finally, you’ll get an extra check-in session 90 days after our mentorship ends, to review and tweak your strategy going into the future.
Ready to get started? Excellent!
Here’s what to do:
Step 1. Schedule a complimentary, no-obligation consult.
Step 2. Before we hop on the phone, I’d like to know a bit about you and what you’d like to get out of coaching with me, so you’ll see when you schedule your consult call, there’ll be some questions about you and your business.
Step 3. At the scheduled time of your consult, we’ll consult! We’ll use the opportunity to make sure we’re the perfect fit before you commit.
Step 4. If you decide to work with me, I’ll tell you the exact steps for getting started. If you decide not to work with me or if we're not a perfect fit, I’m happy to share other resources to help you get what you need.
If you have any questions, just get in touch and I’ll be happy to answer.
What they’re saying:
"Sophy’s coaching is a beautiful combination of head and heart. Having someone to bounce ideas off of who can help me organize my thoughts, and give me feedback and different perspectives has been invaluable to me as a solopreneur.
I would recommend her services to anyone who needs help, not only with their big idea/vision but for those times when they're stuck in the weeds without a clear view of what steps to take next.”
"Sophy's approach is gentle and patient but really effective. She is super-respectful of her clients' choices and honours the way they are choosing to run their business, and what their priorities are.
During our time together I launched a free challenge which doubled my list subscribers. I grew my visibility, gained more followers on social media, and changed my message to be aligned more with my values.
I have a plan for where I am going and am excited for what the future holds."
"WOW! Sophy is pretty amazing -- think soul search + practical advice + integrity. In just one hour she made great suggestions for how I might manage a big business transition without feeling that I have to give up all my income and start from scratch again.
Working with her in a mentorship gave me more clarity and a valuable list of action points. 'Permission' to 'stay the course' and a sense of the 'next level' for my business.
She is substantive, no-nonsense, a deep listener and able to move people along when they feel stuck"
“I would ABSOLUTELY recommend working with Sophy!
I got accountability and clarity, confidence and practical steps around ‘big girl’ things like how to wrap up on draggy projects; tweaking my contract and communication to create better boundaries for future projects; breaking up with a client who could potentially jeopardise my new way of working, etc.
I really appreciate the off-call support she provides... it really felt like she’d created space for me, not just during the calls but in and around them as well, and that made me feel cared for.
Her expertise covers so many important areas, from time/energy, to growing sustainably and authentically, to brand clarity / voice / story etc... I think the reason I choose her over others is that inherent trust I feel, and the fact that she’s not just an empathiser and cheerleader, she always offers really practical nitty-gritty tips and strategies that I would have overlooked or am just not naturally wired to implement by myself. So I think she’s a particularly good fit for people with a lot of heart but who might need some grounding and practical support when it comes to executing their dreams. ”
