Too many people set up a business to get more freedom than they had in their job and then become a slave to the business.

My aim is to help business owners create freedom from the "day job" so they can live the dream ... whatever that means for them.


Hi, I'm Sarah Gathercole and
I'm living my dream!


Everybody's dream is different
- for me it's about being able to work from anywhere and being flexible with my time so I can spend more time with my animals and my motorhome. For you it might be working school hours and term-time only so you can spend time with your children, or it might be to work a 3 day week so you can spend more time on your hobby.

Whatever your individual 'dream', the way to achieve it is to get your business working for you, not the other way round.

 

So things are going well, the business is growing but it's all a bit chaotic.

You feel like you don't have control of what's going on and you often have a niggling feeling that you've forgotten something.

If you have a team, you still seem to be the centre of everything, with people coming to you for guidance all the time.

You're concerned that if the business gets any bigger it'll get more chaotic, with more people grasping for your time and more potential for things to go wrong for the customer.

The key to growth with control and without your constant input is process. 

You may well have ways of doing things but if they're not formalised then not everyone will be clear what to do and that's why they keep having to ask for help.

Once you have clear processes in your business the next key to making your business less reliant on you is to automate what you can, then delegate the tasks that  require the human touch.

I've been working with small business owners since 2006 and being the centre of your business is not uncommon but in reality you've created yourself a J.O.B. not a business if it can't function, at least in part, without you.  

A lot of my work over the years has been helping business owners to create structure through systems and processes before they've been able to delegate to our VA team.  In the early days I was creating 2D process systems but in 2014 I discovered Trello and it's literally changed my life!

I just played with it at first, using it for a few things here and there, but in 2016 I realised it's potential to turn business processes into interactive '3D' systems that really make managing your business slick and easy!

It enables you to boost organisation, tracking and team-work whilst giving you control of everything that's going on in your business.  It allows automation through it's collaboration with other software and it makes delegation a doddle!

I truly run all areas of my life with Trello and I'm passionate about helping other small business owners gain the flexibilty and freedom I have through process, automation and delegation and Trello can enable all of this.

Whether you are already using Trello or not, here are some awesome packages designed to help you create freedom so you can live your dream!
