"Jen’s advice was invaluable! I was experiencing some real barriers with my creative business and after our first call I already felt so much more hopeful and optimistic about the possibilities.

 

It wasn’t just that she was lovely and encouraging, her help was also practical and I went away with a clearer direction and understanding of how to get to where I needed to be.

Thanks to Jen it’s all beginning to feel within reach now."

- LAUREN SMITH, LAURENINK ART -

THIS IS YOUR TIME

What do you want for your business?

What would you change? What would you stop? What would you do more of? 

How are you going to make sure that happens?

When you run your own business, you need to be everything to everyone. You're the designer, the creator, the marketing director, the IT whizz, the distribution handler, the tea maker... I could go on!

 

When we're bogged down in all that detail it can be really easy to fall down the rabbit hole as we grab every opportunity that comes our way. Suddenly we find we're attracting the wrong clients, offering things we don't really want to sell, and working every hour of the day to make a profit. So let's take a step back from the day-to-day, take a breath, and look again.

I can work with you for a couple of hours to untangle and plan out a single project you're working on, or we can chat regularly for several months giving you ongoing support, accountability and the motivation to make big changes to your business.

I've worked with artists, designers, writers, event planners, mentors, therapists, and shop owners. I've worked with women completely overhauling their businesses, and mothers who finally have time to build something entirely new from scratch. Something for themselves.

I would love to work with you too.

"I've thought about working with a mentor for a few years now and I'm so happy it was Jen that I worked with. I was planning some changes in my small business and her nurturing approach was just what I needed.

 

The sessions were always a revelation with Jen somehow managing to cut through the cloud of thoughts in my head and get to the action I needed to take or the decision I needed to make.

 

Huge goals were broken down into achievable steps and the gentle nudges of encouragement she gave throughout the process gave some much-needed accountability.

 

It's been an amazing journey, and I'm so looking forward to working with Jen again in the future."

PACKAGES

SOW THE SEED

A SINGLE TWO HOUR BRAINSTORM

You have created a product or service you want to sell, and maybe even launched your small business online or at an event, but something isn't flowing for you. You feel your branding isn't consistent, you don't know where to start with your To Do list, and everything feels overwhelming.

This option is perfect for a single project, such as:

- You're building a website or social media campaign and want a second opinion and practical advice on planning and launching.

- You're designing or refreshing your brand, want to bounce ideas around with someone who gets it, and be given clear, implementable feedback on your visuals and tone of voice.

- You're feeling overwhelmed and need support and a dedicated space to explore and clarify your ideas.

HOW IT WORKS

This is a one-off video call to get you focussed on a particular project or aspect of your business.

 

I'll send you some questions ahead of our chat so we can both come armed and ready. You'll leave the call with clear actions, and knowing exactly where to start. 

 

I'll follow up with an email laying out your plan of action clearly and concisely for you to refer back to, and will pop you a note a couple of weeks down the line to see how you've been getting on.

YOUR INVESTMENT - £99.00

ROOT + GROW

SIX CALLS OVER THREE MONTHS

Longer term mentoring is for you if you're planning some bigger changes to your business, or simply want ongoing accountability and friendly support as you build the business that truly works for you.

This option is perfect for multifaceted changes, challenges and longer term planning, such as:

- You're creating a new offering and want support as you plan, build, market and launch to a cheering audience.

- You've been running your business for a while but you're not attracting your ideal client, you're working more than you're earning, and your To Do list is getting longer instead of shorter.

- You constantly question your own business decisions, struggle to say no, and comparison is getting you down. You'd like a regular friendly catch up to sense check your plans, and gain clarity and confidence.

 

HOW IT WORKS

Fortnightly video calls to work through goals and challenges together. I'll follow up each chat with an email laying out your plan of action clearly and concisely for you to refer back to, and I'll share any recommendations or resources we discussed.

 

On the week between calls I check in to see how you're progressing. Always friendly, never chasing or pressuring you to take on more than you can. I'll be available on email to you between calls too, should you have any questions or hit any stumbling blocks that need smashing together! 

CYCLE AWARENESS

If you're comfortable with it, we will discuss your cycle and how listening to your body and following your own natural rhythm can boost your productivity and stop you feeling like you're swimming against the tide on certain tasks. My favourite life hack of all time! If you don't have a menstrual cycle, and there are many reasons why you may not, then we can work with the lunar cycle.

YOUR INVESTMENT - £360.00

 

This can be paid in one go or split into two payments of £130. One ahead of our first call, and the second midway through our commitment. I don't add any fees for splitting payments, please get in touch if you've any questions around this.

BLOOM + FLOURISH

TEN CALLS OVER FIVE MONTHS

My longest term commitment, this option is perfect for digging deep and making big changes, such as:

- An overhaul of your brand and business. Website, visuals, copy, social media, new offerings - it's time for a whole new look!

- Getting back to work after an extended break. Whether health reasons, travelling the world, or making and raising a human, it can take a big mental shift and ongoing support to get back into the flow.

- Quitting the day job and turning your side business to support you full time - boom!

HOW IT WORKS

Fortnightly video calls to work through goals and challenges together. If you want to get into the real nitty gritty of a specific area for two hours on one day, we can plan the rest of our time together accordingly. 

 

I'll follow up each chat with an email laying out your plan of action clearly and concisely for you to refer back to, and I'll share any recommendations or resources we discussed.

 

On the week between calls I check in to see how you're progressing. Always friendly, never chasing or pressuring you to take on more than you can. I'll be available on email to you between calls too, should you have any questions or hit any stumbling blocks that need smashing together! 

CYCLE AWARENESS

If you're comfortable with it, we will discuss your cycle and how listening to your body and following your own natural rhythm can boost your productivity and stop you feeling like you're swimming against the tide on certain tasks. My favourite life hack of all time! If you don't have a menstrual cycle, and there are many reasons why you may not, then we can work with the lunar cycle as it mirrors our own.

YOUR INVESTMENT - £590.00

 

We can split this investment in to two payments of £295 if that is more comfortable for you. I don't add any extra fees for splitting payments. Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss this further.

SHALL WE BEGIN?

Pop me a note to let me know little about your business and we can arrange our introductory chat to get to know each other. It's free (woo!) and doesn't commit you to anything further.

“The emails (and in particular the final one, which I hadn’t expected) were incredibly valuable to me. Jen has a real talent in seeing the big picture with such clarity - and then feeds it back very eloquently. The last email moved me to tears as I’d forgotten I’d said all that, but this message shot straight through to the truth of my situation. And that reminder of what we’d discussed lifted me back up again. Very grateful.”
