You’re a side-hustler with big dreams for your business, dreams to do the work you really love and want to share with the world. You’re a freedom-seeker who wants to live the slower, more meaningful lifestyle you long for.
But how when you can’t seem to make enough time for your side-hustle and you never seem to get to the end of your to-do list? And how do you get past the voice in your head asking is it worth it, will this ever work, who are you to put your work out into the world?
I get what you’re trying to do and I’m cheering you on every step of the way. I’ve been therE And I can tell you now - it is worth it, you can make it work, and you have every right to put your work out into the world.
I can do much more than just cheer you on
I been doing the side-hustle thing for 7 years, first building a successful product-based business on the side of a 9-5 and later, the business I have now. I know what it’s like to manage your time between a 9-5 and a side-business and I know how uncomfortable it feels to push outside of your comfort zone. But I also know how exciting it feels to see big things happening, to see your ideas become reality and hand in your notice to take your side-hustle full time (Eeeeek - that’s an ‘I’m scared but excited too noise’)!
I learned that when I got intentional about building my business, big things started to happen. I took inspiration from the tools I used in my 9-5 as a project manager and using my own flair (and extreme geekiness) for planning and productivity I developed my own 3-step planning method which helped me focus on the right areas, I created tools for beating procrastination, streamlining my tasks and being more efficient with my time. I also learned about how important it was to put boundaries in place to avoid burnout due to trying to do all-of-the-things at once.
This all added up to and finding more happiness, fulfilment and freedom, not only in the work I do but also in my lifestyle.
And I really want the same for you! I want to share my tools and experience with you to help you grow your side-hustle into something magical. I’d love to be part of your journey from side-hustler to freedom-seeker and see you create the business and lifestyle you long for.

1:1 mentoring - How it works
Take yourself from side-hustler to freedom-seeker, with my support every step of the way.
Our 1hr chats over Skype
On the first call we’ll kick things off with by digging deep into what kind of business and lifestyle you want to create. We’ll figure out what needs change in your side-hustle and get clarity on where your focus needs to be toreallytake things up a level. We’ll talk about what struggles you have when it comes to planning and productivity and unpick what’s been holding you back so far.
Together we’ll set 1-3 focus areas and goals for you to work on over the 12 weeks and I’ll take you through how to create your own 12-week plan using my 3-step planning method and the printed wall planner that you’ll get as part of the course.
We’ll use the rest of the calls to discuss how you’re getting on with your plan and I’ll introduce you to the planning and time management tools that will help you with whatever might be holding you back or getting in the way of making your plan a reality. This might be focussing on how you can work smarter with your time or plan your weeks more effectively, it could be introducing you to a new way of writing to do lists that helps you make things happen or creating a flexible routine designed specifically around your lifestyle. We’ll also cover setting up systems and looking at what tasks you might be able to outsource or just take off your to-do list all together, so that you can free up time to work on the parts of your side-hustle where you really shine.
As well as the practical stuff we’ll talk about what’s holding you back and find ways of getting past that fear of putting yourself out there, the self-doubt that comes up when you start doing something new in your business or perhaps the overwhelm you start to feel from time to time.
My 1:1 mentoring is entirely shaped around you, so we’ll take everything at your pace and talk about whatever it is that you need to focus on during each call.

Is mentoring for me?

Mentoring is the right choice if you’re looking for the dedicated support and encouragement that you can only get from one-to-one conversations. Perhaps you’re craving some personalised feedback from someone who’s been there or want to create some planning and productivity tools that are tailored just for you.
