Does this sound like you?
You need to replace the salary you were earning as an employee, but it's turning out to be too much work and taking too long
You're constantly tied to your laptop and always working. The only time you're not, is when you're eating or sleeping- but still you're not getting the results you want
You have the expertise, but lack the business skills needed to run your own business. Things like money management and marketing are time consuming and confusing
You don't know how to turn your wealth of knowledge into an offer that will appeal to the clients you want to attract
You've never had to secure your own clients before and sales conversations give you sweaty palms & have you running for the hills
You need practical guidance, such as templates, cheat sheets and and fill in the gap documents, so you can implement fast and turn this ship around
You’re fed up with the feast or famine client cycle, you have clients today but nothing booked for the next 3 months and it's stressing you out
If you’re thinking ‘That’s me’- then you’re in the right place!

Here's what the journey looks like inside the Beyond The Hourly Rate®
Winging it Entrepreneur
Proactively build your service business your way.
First things first, we need a Strategy.
We anchor your business with your core values. Think of them as the compass that point you in the right direction. Once we have that figured out, decision making becomes a breeze!
Phase One is where the magic happens.
I''ll guide you through five core trainings to uncover what's working and what's not in your business. If you're just starting out, I've got your back! And if you're already established, I'll help you find the gaps and fill them up.
With clear guidance you'll have a master plan that aligns with your strengths and skillset. Say goodbye to overwhelm and hello to success! Together let's make business be easy and fun!
Your Core Strategy trainings cover;
What comes from Phase 1 is unwavering clarity, confidence and direction. No more procrastinating, distraction, second guessing and comparing. Going forward, every hour you spend working on your business will be productive and focused and the logical phased approach will be your guide. At this point, you’ll be itching to take action, excited and incredibly motivated.
In Phase 2.. It's all about the 'How'
The training vault opens up and you’ll start learning new business skills and implementing the changes required using the phased approach. Along with my team, I’ve taken the best of all the strategies that my clients and I have used across the years, simplified them and taken out the guess work. There's an extensive training vault with videos showing you exactly what you need to do and resources including worksheets, templates, how to guides and fill in the blank forms so you have everything you need to support within the program to proactively implement at speed.
But that's not all. You also get Coaching, Mentorship, & community. Here’s what a month looks like, every week you are supported.
I've created a community that's waiting to welcome you!
You don’t have to do business alone anymore.
When you join Beyond the Hourly Rate®, you’re not just joining a program, you’re joining a community of service business owners who, like you are proactive in their business. Surrounding yourself with the right people is instrumental to your outlook, mindset and ultimately your success.
Here’s what’s in the community;
Weekly Power Hour
Mini Mastermind Group
Active Private Facebook Group
We have people from all different backgrounds in the program including creatives, coaches and consultants. Some are solopreneurs, some have a support team behind them, such as a VA, bookkeeper, contractors and/or digital marketer and the larger ones are starting to grow their teams.
If you can’t attend a call, email in your question and it will be answered. All calls are recorded and kept in the platform for replay.
You’ll be grouped with likeminded business owners for your monthly mastermind meetings, this is a great opportunity to get to know others in the program on a deeper level. Mastermind groups are changed every few months to ensure you form deep connections with as many people in the community as possible.
If you have signed up to the Accelerator option, as a BONUS you'll have lifetime access to the entire training vault PLUS any new trainings, so you can revisit it whenever you like.
No, I focus predominantly on Business Facebook groups and Linked in, because that’s where I’m seeing the best results with my clients.
Show up to all the sessions, and block time in your diary for implementation. This isn’t a course where you just consume content, it’s what you do with that knowledge that will actually make the difference in your business.
You may leave the program at any time but there are no refunds. Please read the Terms and Conditions thoroughly before signing up. If you select to pay monthly you are bound a legal contract to pay for the remaining months of your agreement.

Yes. Beyond the Hourly Rate® is great for business owners who want to get it right first time, avoid trial and error and start earning what they are worth.
Yes. If you want to be proactive and have gaps in your foundations, Beyond the hourly rate® will help you to quickly identify what those areas are then support you with the expertise, training and resources from the toolbox to implement change.
I have helped numerous service businesses to achieve their goals, pivot when needed and build solid foundations. However, your success is your responsibility and there are too many external factors to ever guarantee results. You need to be prepared to put in the work, be coachable, be held accountable and be proactive.
No. My personal view is that there are enough imperative tasks to running a business already. Yes you can build a business and DIY everything, but that’s the slow road. You’ll grow faster, start earning sooner and save a heap of brain ache by implementing a solid strategy and being client focused rather than tinkering around with code and all the technical aspects. I do however have an extensive network of trusted experts that I can refer you to.
Each participant is offered two 1:1 sessions at key points during the 6 month program.
