Hey overwhelmed solopreneur…
Stop treading water and make your cozy business dream a reality…
Without the pressure of building an empire, scaling to 7 figures, and growing a team you have to manage.
Perfect for introverted and highly sensitive service-based solopreneurs.
At this point, you’ve heard it all before and probably already tried:
Investing thousands in programs that teach you some ‘magic pill’ method for success and ending up feeling like you're the problem when they don't work.
Creating “value” content to attract new clients but each post takes so much energy out of you, that you don’t post again for another month.
Putting together a high ticket offer because you’ve been told that’s the only way to make 6-7 figures, but you feel so uncomfortable about the price, you don’t even want to share it.
Are you exhausted trying to keep up with all the new business trends, when you know they’re probably not going to work for you anyway?
You want to create a successful business, but so far it’s felt way harder than it should…
You feel like you have to change everything about yourself
If you’re anything like me, you’ve felt your whole life that being introverted and highly sensitive doesn’t equal success… so you’ve probably spent buckets of $$ trying someone else’s ‘six steps to success’ only to discover you have to change everything about yourself and go against your intuition and natural strengths to get there.
You keep jumping from one strategy to another and you're over it
There are SO many different options to create success in your business. Different business models, modalities, and platforms – with everyone teaching the way that THEY found success. So you get distracted jumping from one method to another, never fully committing to any one long enough to make it work and constantly feeling like a failure.
You're just not that interested in building an empire and a team
The online business world is adamant success means you have to build a team, build a 7 (or 8) figure business, build a freaking empire. And if you don’t want that, you’ve got money blocks, you’re playing small, you’re afraid. It is absolutely okay if you’re more interested in a solopreneur business where you make good money without all the pressure.
Believe it or not, it IS possible to feel aligned, energised, and excited about your business, whilst seeing results, getting the rest you need, and attracting your dream clients…
Without changing who you are.
I’ll be honest with you
It’s been a rollercoaster…
When I first started my coaching business almost 10 years ago, I did ‘all the things’. I got my coaching certification and spent thousands on high end programs and coaches, believing that was the pathway to success.
And I either got the results the programs promised because I’d work until exhaustion – sold out coaching, a five-figure eCourse launch, ebooks and podcasts and speaking gigs.
Or I’d get no results at all (no matter how hard I tried) and feel confused, overwhelmed, and like I was an absolute failure.
I couldn’t see how my business could be sustainable and the ‘next step’ solution everyone was selling was to just keep selling, scale, and build a team to grow my business.
But I knew I didn’t want that.
After 2 years working full time in my business (the dream!) I got so burnt out that I walked away from it all.
I took a 3-year hiatus from my business to help my partner manage his new fitness studios. And the rapid growth we experienced confirmed for me that wasn’t what I wanted
I realised I’d been following someone else’s plan since day 1, even though I’d spent my whole life knowing I worked completely different to most people.
I went on a huge personal healing journey, became a qualified energy healer to understand my deeper soul work better, learnt boundaries (for the first time).
And when I returned to my own work shortly after, I vowed to myself I would make myself a priority in my business.
I would focus on goals that were meaningful to me. I’d stop forcing myself to work in a way that burnt me out and support my clients to do the same.
For the first time in my whole life (through school, my career, and business) I started to feel like I could be myself and thrive.
The more I shared my experience, the more I attracted my dream clients and nurtured my tight-knit community. I instantly filled my 1:1 coaching. I let go of the way things “should” look and focused on what *I* wanted.
I found joy in running my business again, working with clients, and discovering systems, strategy, and support that played to my strengths.
And now I want to help you to do the same.

What the members say…
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I haven’t started my business yet, is this for me?
A: Yes! This membership contains all the things I say to every client who is just starting out or getting ready to launch. I wish someone had told me the things to get up and running FIRST, so I didn’t have to come back and fix lots of things later on.
Q: Do you guarantee this will improve my business?
A: I wish that I could, but I purposely don’t provide guarantees for this work because it is a co-created space. I will show up for you and the container 100% and ask that you do the same.
If you do that, if you commit to yourself and the work and show up and engage, I am very confident that you will start seeing and feeling big shifts in your life, your energy, and your business.
Q: What if I need more support?
A: You’re in luck! I specialise in business strategy, ideation, coaching and consulting. I only work 1:1 with a handful of people a year, but Emerge and Expand members get first access to my 1:1 and Incubator.
Q: I’m an introvert. Will this be okay for me?
A: I can’t tell you either way, take a moment to feel into what feels right for you. But I can speak from experience that I’m about 13% extrovert (ie 87% introvert) and have found group experiences more enjoyable, energising, and expansive than 1:1.
Q: Can I cancel any time?
A: You can cancel any time you like with the click of a button. I don’t want you spending money on something that’s not working for you!
There is also 7-day, no-questions-asked refund policy as well to give you peace of mind if you decide it’s not for you when you get in there.
Q: What if I already have clients and a business?
A: The whole foundation of Emerge + Expand is that we’re building and evolving a sustainable ecosystem that helps you thrive in your business. It’s cyclical but there is always room for a beginner’s mind and expansion. If you’re willing to go there, I am too.
Q: What days and times are the live calls and sessions?
A: The live sessions are held in a private Zoom meeting across multiple times to cater to as many timezones as possible. The calls are:
Live Training: 1st Wed of the month at 10am AEST
Q+A call 1: 2nd Wed of the month 10am AEST
Q+A call 2: 4th Thurs of the month 5pm AEST
Coworking: 11am AEST and 5pm AEST on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays (alt weeks)
Q: How is the content provided?
A: Through live training, recorded video workshops, audio content, workbooks, and other tools. We have our own private off-Facebook community where everything is in one place.
Q: What if I’m in training and my business and website aren’t live?
A: It’s really important that you decide what your capacity is to make sure you can honour your commitments to yourself. But if you feel excited to get things up and running, you’ll be able to ride that momentum through after your graduate. Things aren’t always linear 😉
Q: How tech savvy do I need to be?
A: It’s entirely up to you HOW you create and share your content and offerings. There are so many options and you can start really simple.
I do recommend tools and software to automate parts of your business so it frees up your time and energy for better things.
If you’re ready to get the support of a high-end program, connect with likeminded souls, build your own business ecosystem that supports you to thrive (instead of trying to squeeze you into someone else’s box) and get tools and guidance too, come join us.
