Your 3 month private coaching program commences on Thursday November 1, 2018 until Thursday January 31, 2019.
We will work together 3 hours a week over your 3 month coaching duration (13 weeks) - a total of 39 hours.
You can use these hours however you wish but I would recommend a 1 hour Zoom call a week and then the additional hours for other communication via email/DM/chat about progress/troubleshooting/bouncing ideas throughout the week. This may change depending on where we are at (eg. you may want to start with 2 x 1 hour Zoom calls a week and then reduce to 1) but I like to use this as a guide to start.
I have included a link below so you can start booking your 1:1 calls into my calendar.
Prior to coaching commencing, I have assigned some homework tasks below to ensure you are in a clear mindset and setting yourself up for success.


You didn’t think I was going to let you relax until the course started did you? :)
There are a few things I want you to do over the next couple of weeks to prepare yourself for this exciting new journey. Success and everything you want is available to you but we have to ensure we are in the right mindset to receive it. I will be checking in with you so try and make these things a priority so you are starting our coaching journey and your business on the right foot.


We spoke about this on Day 1 of the Challenge and how important it is to have a clear and healthy mindset, so this is exactly what I want you to focus on before we get stuck into the program. I know you are feeling a bunch of mixed emotions right now: excited, scared, nervous, overwhelmed - and all of this is normal. But we need to clear the chatter in our minds and be open to change and new opportunities. Our mind is so powerful and at times our inner mean girl will come to town and tell us we aren’t worthy or good enough which is completely untrue. I know this because my mean girl was in my head for a really long time before I kicked her to the curb! So I am here to help you do the same and I promise you will feel a giant weight lifted off and ready to take on the world!

Here are some of my favourite ways to clear the mind and realign with your purpose:

  • Meditation - I have a new found respect for meditation. It has allowed me to quieten the voices of self doubt in my head and really centre myself so I can be aligned with my true purpose and values. I think a lot of people overcomplicate meditation, I know I did, but what it really comes down to is your breathing. Find a quiet place, relax and just breathe. Deep breaths in and out, feel your breath enter and leave your body and focus only on that. Trust me, it works wonders and I always finish a meditation with a clearer, more positive mind. I personally find guided meditations to be my favourite and there are heaps of apps you can download, some of my faves being:
    - Calm
    - Buddify

  • Reading - I am not a big reader but I have lost myself in a few books lately which have really given me new perspective on my mindset and how I have been treating myself internally. Some books I have read which I highly recommend are:
    - I am a Bad Ass - Jen Sincero
    - Winging It - Emma Isaacs
    - Mastering Your Mean Girl - Melissa Ambrosini
    - Girl Boss - Sophia Amoruso
    - Crushing It - Gary Vaynerchuk

  • Surrounding yourself with positive people - it sounds like a no brainer but if someone is not being supportive of you or your goals then you need to ask yourself if they really have your best intentions in mind. By investing in private coaching you have already made a strong first step towards reaching your goals and creating the life you have always dreamed of. You deserve all the happiness and success in the world and if anyone (including your inner mean girl) says otherwise take a step back, breathe and re-focus your energy back to your values and purpose.


I want you to create a space for yourself where you can work on your business/blog. Somewhere you feel relaxed, focused and free of noise and clutter. Perhaps you have a desk you can work at or a nook in the backyard - wherever makes you feel like you will be most productive. By creating this space we our giving ourselves permission to get in the zone, work on our business and set ourselves up for success.

I always keep a vision board in my workspace. I fill it with the pictures of things which I want for my future: holidays, houses, cars and more fur babies! By having this in my work space at all times it helps keep me focused and it is a reminder of the bigger picture and what I am working towards.

I would love for you to create your vision board. By having your own business and being your own boss what do you want to achieve? Would you like to earn a certain amount a year? Would you like to go on more holidays? The sky is the limit and everything is available to you so don’t hold back!


I am giving you access to my calendar so you can book in your 1:1 Private Calls (60 minutes each) with me over the next 3 months. These calls will take place in ZOOM (it is free and very easy to use!) and are recorded so you can play them back later. Everything we discuss in these calls is completely confidential and relevant to your business/blog so you get the chance to ask me anything you might need assistance with along the way. I recommend spacing these calls out over the duration of the program so you get the most leverage out of them.

I understand things can pop up and you may need to reschedule, where possible please try and give me 24 hours advance notice.

If at any point during out time working together you feel like you are struggling or unsure please don’t hesitate to contact me. DM me on Facebook or reach out to me via email at
- I am here to help you every step of the way!
