I can help you grow a truly sustainable business - financially, emotionally and energetically.
Is this you?
Running a business wasn’t supposed to be this hard.
You started out wanting to share your gifts with the world and have plenty of time for your family and the rest of your life. That’s not quite how it’s turning out though. The big dreams you had seem to have got buried somewhere under your never-ending to-do list.
You’re tired of always feeling stretched too thin, scrambling to catch up.
You’re stuck on a hamster wheel of busy-work - between email, social media, marketing and networking, it seems there’s barely any time at all to do your real work. And this business that was supposed to give you the flexibility to be fully present with your family instead seems to be taking over your life.
You hate this thought, but you’re starting to doubt that running your own business really is the right thing to do. At least when you had a 9-5 job, you had a reliable structure (and pay cheque!) to plan around.
Even though the money's coming in, it doesn’t feel sustainable, let alone enjoyable.
You want to do work that matters and live a life that you love - but first you need to raise your income and find a way to market and sell your services that doesn't feel pushy or uncomfortable.
And you need to know that you have the right structures in place - the right offers, the right pricing, the right marketing and sales strategies, robust back-end operations, to keep everything running smoothly and effectively.
You’re an ‘accidental entrepreneur’.
You wanted to be an artist or a life coach or a designer or a yoga teacher, but that turned out to mean being self-employed.
You don’t want to be a slick marketing machine.
You want to focus on the work and clients that you love – but you need more income, otherwise you’ll have to give up and go back to the soul-sucking 9-5...
You know roughly what you’re supposed to do to promote your business, but you’re trapped in a combination of overwhelm, procrastination and discomfort. The transactional and manipulative models presented by the online gurus make you want to run screaming in the opposite direction.
As someone who fell into running your own business, you haven't been trained in doing sales and marketing in ways that feel authentic, natural, creative and empowering. All you've been given is a model that repels you. In the meantime, you're trying to build social media platforms with no clear plan for how that's going to lead to more paying clients.
You're frustrated that your hard work isn't paying off with the freedom you'd hoped for.
You wonder if you can succeed without selling out.
You just want to make a good living doing good work – other people manage it, so what’s stopping you?
What if you could build a business that plays to your natural strengths?
Your quiet, introverted and intuitive side can be the superpower that leads to more connection, deeper relationships and an entirely authentic way of doing business.
It can happen - and I can help.
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 raise your rates with integrity and 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.
Who I Work With
My clients have usually been in business for at least a year, normally two to five years; most often working as a solopreneur, sometimes with part-time support or a very small team. They're highly creative and very much focused on doing the best possible work for their own clients.
I work with:
- artists and makers
- holistic practitioners
- e-course creators.
They’re proud of the business they’ve built up but want to increase their income without burning out.
What We Do Together
If you decide to work with me, we will focus on aligning your business with your real strengths, your values and your deeper sense of purpose. I will help you see the bigger story you want your business to tell - and then we'll work on the nitty-gritty of how to do that without working all hours.
We'll explore different ways of building your business that feel natural and avoid hard selling or manipulative tactics. Making the most of your innate ability to tell a story and build personal relationships will mean you can market and sell your business in a way that feels true to you.
Overall, my aim is to help you to find freedom, flow and fulfillment in your business by focusing only on what really works for you.
