does this sound like you?

  • You feel chained to your desk in a job that doesn't inspire you or, worse still,
    doesn't even recognise all the extra time and effort you're putting in

  • You're fed up of all the internal politics or feel you're in a toxic environment that jars with your values and beliefs 

  • You dream of less stress, less politics, less hours, more choice, more flexibility and more money!

  • You crave more time to explore your passions, such as travel or family and want a more flexible working life 

  • You've been dreaming about starting a creative, freelance or online business and believe that your time is now!

i hear you lady!

I’ve was standing exactly where you are now not too long ago – craving more time, more freedom and more flexibility. I decided to devise a plan that enabled me to get my business up and running in just 3 months and finally take the leap. I can honestly say that I have never looked back. If being your own boss is something you’ve been dreaming about, I would love to invite you to do EVERYTHING you can to make it a reality.

 

so boss lady,

We both know that there is more to life than climbing that slippery, corporate ladder only to realise the hamster wheel is the same – even from those dizzy heights.

I’m guessing you’ve known this for a while…but FEAR of FAILURE, SCARCITY and straight up PROCRASTINATION can sometimes hold us captive in a working world that we know we don’t belong. Stuck in a frustrating or even toxic environment where you can’t be yourself or see any real room for progression. 

I know that you’re not scared of hard work – you can hustle with the best of them! – but you would much rather be building your own dream than someone else’s empire!

You’re also at a point where you need more time, space and flexibility to pursue your other passions such as travel or starting/raising a family.

Well I want you to know something.

I mean it when I say that ALL OF THESE DESIRES are within your reach. You just have to believe AND take inspired action in order to live your dreams.

Your DREAMS of…

…less stress, less politics, less hours. More choice, more flexibility and more money!

…a business that enables you to pick and choose who you work with, the hours you work and the projects you work on!

…a working environment that feels energising and inspiring, playful and fun!

And ultimately…

…your dream of a profitable, drama-free business that plays in harmony with the rest of your life NOT against it.

THE PROBLEM IS, RIGHT NOW, THE THOUGHT OF TAKING THE LEAP INTO ENTREPRENEURSHIP ALL FEELS A LITTLE LIKE A PIPE DREAM.

The very idea of starting a business from scratch, whilst there are bills to pay, mouths to feed and lifestyles to maintain sometimes feels a little…well crazy!  

Not to mention your HECTIC schedule – where would you even find the time?!

MAYBE YOU'RE: 

  • Having a ‘good week’ this week and today work doesn’t seem so bad (until the next stress inducing meeting/project/deadline);

  • Desperate to bring in more income and toying with the idea of starting a ‘side-gig’ to begin with

  • Feeling frustrated in your current situation, but just want to stick it out till the next promotion or pay rise (even though you know that it always looks much better on paper than it does in your actual bank account each month!);

  • Full of great business ideas, but feel unsure which one to go with;

  • Aware that work has really knocked your confidence and you’re not even sure you have what it takes to go it alone; 

  • 100% willing and ready to make a go of it but have got absolutely NO IDEA – where to start!

what if i told you that all this could change?

I’M LEAVING WITH RIDICULOUS LEVELS OF CONFIDENCE IN MY NEW BUSINESS! “NO MORE OVER THINKING! THIS COACHING MAKES YOU TAKE ACTION.

NOT TOO LONG AGO I WAS STUCK IN A RUT

Irene-25.jpg

The reason I love the work that I do is because not too long ago I felt completely trapped. 

I remember being stressed out, snappy at home and constantly overwhelmed by the demands at work.

You see, alongside my high-pressured corporate career, I was also care-giving for my mum and sister with MS as well as trying to start fertility treatment with my husband - who at the time had just been made redundant from work. I almost felt like I was living a double life of being a bad*ss in the boardroom one minute then having almost daily anxiety attacks the next. I had fully thrown myself into my work and as a result had damaged my most important relationships including the one I had with myself. Unsurprisingly, all of these pressures combined had began to impact my own health. I was totally burnt out and knew that something had to change.     

Being a bit of an 'over planner' myself I decided to created a rock-solid exit plan and successfully to launched my digital training consultancy within 3 months - growing it to a 6-figure business in under a year. 

It wasn't easy by any means, but I know for sure that if one person can do it - we all can! 

And the impact it's had on my well-being and life has been nothing short of incredible...

Fast track a few years and, not only do I run my dream consultancy & coaching business, but I also have the honour of coaching other aspiring female entrepreneurs just like you face their fears and finally ditch corporate life in order to start a business they love.

  • I chose my hours and have more time and space to spend with my loved ones

  • I chose my clients and can confidently decline those who don’t align with my values knowing I can find more that ca

  • I chose my income and enjoy no restrictions on my earning potential

  • And most importantly for me I can travel the world and have adventures without disrupting my work flow

I don't share this to brag, but to show you that there is really nothing extraordinary about me and to remind you that if one person can do it we all can! 

As long as you are ready to dream the dream, do the work and open your mind to what is possible then you too can experience the freedom that comes with being your own boss.

  • The freedom to wake up when you want and plan your day.

  • The freedom to take care of your health and exercise or cook when you want.

  • The freedom to create and earn more money without limitations, reviews or appraisals.

  • The freedom to just be who you are!

Now nobody is implying that it’s a walk in the park. 

Truth is, it takes a lot of focus, discipline and determination for sure and as I said, nothing this good comes easy...

NOW, HERE'S THE UGLY TRUTH ABOUT ENTREPRENEURSHIP

It’s bloody lonely! (And sometimes a little scary too.)

One thing you should know is that I'm all about the real talk so it's important to share some home truths so you can make a balanced decision about starting a business. 

The truth is, many people don’t launch successfully because ultimately they don’t have a rock solid, foolproof plan to make their an idea or passion commercially viable. They are lead to believe that some pretty branding, building an audience on social media and maybe some free marketing strategies they may have read/watched online is all they need. 

As a result 50% of new businesses fail*. I don’t want that for you.                                     (*SOURCE: FORBES.COM )

I want you to start a rock-solid business with the fundamental elements in place AND I want you to do it quickly so you can spend more time making money from your offering, serving your tribe and scaling your impact.

The reality is, in order for your business to be successful you need to set impeccable foundations in all the key areas of business. No matter how experienced we are, we still need the guidance from people who have been successful before us and the ongoing support from others to keep us accountable.

 

THAT'S WHY I STARTED THE SAVVY STARTUP CLUB

START YOUR BUSINESS THE SAVVY WAY!

The Savvy Startup Club is a 12 month group coaching programme, where myself and my expert team will be holding your hand through the the first year of entrepreneurship.

WHAT MAKES THE SAVVY STARTUP DIFFERENT?

The Savvy Startup Club is not just another DIY online course with no support when you need it most.

It’s designed to help you build and launch your business from the ground up, with the expert guidance and 

done-with-you coaching that truly empowers you to launch with complete confidence in your ability to start a successful business.

It’s not about blueprints, formulas or one-size signature systems.

Every business is unique, and the Savvy Startup Club enables you tap in to that uniqueness in order to set solid foundations for a successful business.

I won’t be selling false hopes of 7-figure figure sales on day 1, but I will provide you with the practical and emotional tools required to launch a profitable and sustainable business: 

…even if you are still in your 9-to-5

…even if you are scared of failing

…even if you are terrified of ‘putting yourself out there’

…even if you have no idea where to start

The Savvy Startup Club helps eliminate all of those fears by providing real, in-person guidance on exactly what you need to focus on in your new business first so that you can take strategic and significant steps towards becoming your own boss and launching a business in the next 12 months.

 

AS YOUR COACH, MY DREAM FOR YOU IS SIMPLE

I want you to truly understand that there is another way. 

  • Another way to work that doesn’t mean crazy long hours building someone else’s dream without the recognition (or extra pay!)

  • Another way to work that doesn’t mean putting up with politics and unnecessary work drama that zaps your energy and confidence.

  • Another way to work that doesn’t mean missing out on loved ones or being chained to a desk for a job you can do anywhere in the world.

It’s YOUR way.
It’s the way that YOU decide to design your dream business (and life!) and I’m here as your coach to help you make that dream a reality as quickly and seamlessly as possible - and make a bloody good living whilst doing so.

The questions is…
are YOU ready to chase that dream?

You’re NOT ready if: 

  • You have absolutely no idea what kind of business you would like to start

  • You already have a list of reasons why you should stay  in your corporate job and secretly hoping things will one day change

  • You can’t see beyond your financial situation right now or feel prepared to look for any funding solutions

  • You’re unwilling to step out of your comfort zone or engage in new communities to help grow your business

  • You're not prepared to try new approaches and just want to do things the way you have always done things in the past

  • It doesn't matter either way if you don't every become your own boss

You ARE ready if: 

  • You have a good idea of the business you want to start and want to launch quickly

  • You have good initiative and are not afraid to ask for support

  • You have always known that you would eventually be your own boss and feel that NOW is the time to get the ball rolling by any means necessary

  • You are ready to be open, willing to dream and open to trusting the process

  • You are committed to completing the tried and tested processes suggested for you by me and my team of experts in the programme

  • You fully intend to successfully launch your business in the next 12 months

SO HERE'S THE THING...

There is no coaching, no programme, no magic pill in the world that is going to help you launch a wildly successful business if you are not prepared to show up for yourself.

If you’re not prepared to look at your situation and decide to wave goodbye to the life you don’t want simply because it feels safe and comfortable.

For many, many years I talked myself out of going solo because the thought of not having the same money coming into the bank every month or appearing like a failure to my peers was too much more me to handle. And that’s okay. But one day I realised that I had a choice to make….

OPTION 1 = stay working the long hours and neglecting my health and happiness OR

OPTION 2 = make a plan and start setting myself up so I could eventually become my own boss

Well, friend – you are now standing in that same place.

It’s time for you to decide if:

  • You are going to be exactly where you are right now in another 12 months’ time, around the same people and facing the same frustrations and challenges OR

  • You are going to take inspired action and start designing the life that you REALLY want
