You’re self-employed,
not by-yourself-employed

On any given day our business requires us to:

  • Believe in, support and champion ourselves as leaders
  • Value what we are offering to the world
  • Get to grips with our relationship with money
  • Be comfortable with visibility
  • Handle criticism, judgement and rejection with grace
  • Believe we know enough to support our clients
  • Believe we are talented enough to create beautiful, useful things
  • Continuously experiment (sometimes in public)
  • Honour our individual pace
  • Decide who’s opinions are worthy of our attention
  • Figure out everything from mailing lists to tax obligations
  • Stay connected to our creativity
  • Hone the words to describe the value of our work
  • Resist comparing our work to ‘the competition’
  • Discern who to ask for help and support
  • Get showered and dressed.

no wonder self-employment is catnip for self-doubt!

BRAVEHEART WORKSHOPS ARE DESIGNED FOR COURAGEOUS BUSINESS OWNERS WHO WANT ACCESSIBLE, PROVEN, FLUFF-FREE TOOLKITS, THAT BUILD SELF-BELIEF ALONG THE WAY.

 

 

How to get the most from A BRAVEHEARTS workshop:

Bring a spirit of curiosity. We’ll explore each topic using a range of proven methods: creativity, connection, strategic thinking and day-dreaming.

 

Be compassionate with yourself. Wrapping a business around you hearts work can bring up all kinds of self-doubt. You’ll be supported to do this in a way that feels good for you.

Trust that there is a place for you here, no matter where you are in your business life. Your work matters and we are all in this together. You don’t have to do this alone.

BRAVEHEARTS WORKSHOPS ARE AVAILABLE TO BUY!

Bring your business goals to life,
based on your actual life

Most plans are shelved as soon as we create them (and then we tend to use them as evidence that we just aren’t cut out for this self-employed gig).

But linear, time-based planning doesn’t work for those of us with self-doubt. That’s why I developed Courage Based Planning – to help you bring your business goals to life, based on your actual life.

That means we build in space for emotions, PMS, all of your other responsibilities and the unexpected brilliant idea.

Over 2 hours I’ll lead you through a process to find out what’s possible for your business.

You’ll create a living plan, complete with totally doable next steps and the courage to take them.

Marketing doesn’t have to feel like
the dark arts of self-employment

Sharing your work and inviting people to buy from you is necessary for your business to flourish.

But: self-doubt, and nothing seems to work and you’re introverted or sensitive or quirky and it feels like you’re winging it the whole time.

Marketing is a skill-set we need to practice, its the deceptively simple act of building trust with a specific group of people, by consistently communicating the value of your work.

It really helps to have a common-sense, value-led, needs-based recipe. That’s where the 6C’s come in!

You’ll walk away knowing the specific next steps for marketing your brilliant business.

YOU’LL RECEIVE THE WORKSHOP IN VIDEO AND AUDIO formats, with any templates + WORKSHEETS. you’re also invited tO THE BRAVEHEARTS FACEBOOK GROUp: WEEKLY TIPS, ONGOING MENTORING AND SUPPORTIVE ACCOUNTABILITY.

Hello! I’m Sas Petherick, a Self-doubt Coach + Mentor

Self-employment is a really bloody courageous choice that’s not for everyone.  When you decide to run your own business it won’t take long before your self-doubt pops up leaving you questioning everything.

It’s also totally worth it. Self-employment is a meaningful way of contributing to the world we all want to live in. We ARE the new economy.

I’ve been leading my coaching practice for the last eight years. It’s a source of endless (and sometimes uncomfortable) growth, pride and joy. I’ve figured out the principles of how to serve consistently and sustainably, staying rooted to my values and my version of success.  I am pretty much unemployable now!

Before I became a coach, I spent over 15 years as a management consultant, supporting dozens of organisations, and at least one Knighted Nobel prize winner to bring their business dreams to life.

You can expect practical tools, evidence-based wisdom, and all the support you need to take intentional action.

I would love to support your brave heart, and your brilliant business!

 

Kind Words

What past participants are saying

I just love how kindness (no hustle!) is such a central thing in this. Plus, letting ourselves make space for self-doubt, new ideas and just life stuff.

My project totally surprised me and also makes complete sense. And it’s now something bigger and better than what I’d come up with before. It’s amazing what happens when you loosen up some and just go with it… see where it leads you.

I also loved the format – online courses can be hard to follow and quite lonely, but this has been lovely. 

I feel supported, equipped and very very hopeful.

Everyday Artefacts

 

I realised I haven’t felt worthy of earning more than I currently do, something I’d secretly barely dared admit to myself – and I openly shared this with other participants.

The floodgates have been opened as far as I’m concerned. Er, wow.

The Wordsmith

I really loved the workshop and got A LOT out of it… I had a genuine breakthrough that one of my limiting beliefs that was powerful stuff and now rewriting the belief is the work and the commitment.  

Also, I know that wasn’t necessarily the aim of the session today but somehow the space Sas created and connection to myself and the quiet focus, in a held community was exceptionally powerful for me. Thank you!  

Zoe Lavendar Stuart

Business Mentor

Today I wrote my business plan. No one was more surprised than me. It was much easier than I expected, I guess, all the seeds were there, I just hadn’t really tended to them. My next step will be to put it into place.

Many thanks to Sas for the workshop, the tools and the words which created just the right space for things to come together. Sas has a knack for gathering such women around her. Came away feeling energised. A good way to spend a Friday. Aided by tea, pastries and an inspiring and supportive group of women.

I’m feeling confident, excited and fired up about marketing my business.

The workshop was filled with ‘yes of course – why haven’t I thought of it like this before…’ moments.

I feel like I am moving into 2019 with both courage and kindness supporting plans, projects and me…Yes!!
