// or a trip to the farmer’s market (because you can afford the organic stuff now).
You two just don't get along...

I’m a fast-thinking Gemini with a curious heart and a passion for sharing knowledge. I also have a university degree in teaching and 10 years’ experience in delivering learning programs both for adults and children.
Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here.

Why do extra work when you could be growing your business? Through our tested process, we’ll help you find clarity in what you need and maximize your efforts from beginning to end.
This is not a templated approach. We know every single buisness and client is unique. We’ll work with you to explore, research and understand your business.
Your competitors may be doing the same thing, but we’ll help you navigate the world of opportunity. There’s always room to improve and innovate.
Through an agile approach, we’ll create a roadmap to completion, create and execute. This is where your product will really come to life.
Learnings, usage and analytics will tell us how to best optimize to continuously reach your customers and maximize your growth potential.
Your business is an ever-evolving thing. Through tracking and reporting, we’ll continuously be your partner to make sure you continue to grow.
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as the original course is in existence.
The course is delivered online and you'll have access to pre-recorded video lessons, workbooks and weekly task sheets. For daily support, there is a private Facebook group. For more in-depth support, you'll be invited to weekly group coaching calls.
You'll need a minimum of 3 hours per week to get the most out of this program.
That is completely A-OK. In fact, you probably won’t be the only student who hasn’t settled on their course topic yet. As long as you have a somewhat-established business and are working with 1:1 clients, we can nut out the rest together as you progress through the course.
I totally get it! Life can get crazy and suddenly the time you thought you had has gone. Don't worry, you have lifetime access to the course materials and the private Facebook group.
I think you'll love the course, but I would hate for you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase and have made a genuine attempt to complete the units, submit the homework and engage with the coaching calls, then contact me in the first 30 days and I will give you a full refund.
