ENTREPRENEURSHIP IS A JOURNEY
all you need is a map
Hi, I'm Sarah. I make maps.
You can spend your time
scrolling endlessly through Google,
making the same mistakes everyone else makes,
and getting advice from people who've never actually built a business...
you can get one-on-one support from someone who knows exactly what you're going through
Many freelancers, consultants, and solopreneurs fail to live up to their potential because they’re defining their success by others' standards.
Your work should serve your life
and you get to define what that means
whether it is a 6-figure income,
a 10 hour week,
or being a digital nomad.
Course, challenges, and templates are helpful...
customized support is invaluable.
I'm Sarah Duran
I’ve been there... figuring everything out alone, learning what works and doesn’t work for my clients, constantly refining my business model to give me what I need in life.
I built a six-figure business from scratch.
I've spent over a decade helping people and organizations turn their ideas into action.
I combine my expertise in organization, strategy, and planning with best practices in personal coaching, and work with you to design the next phase of your work and life.
I have a passion for helping freelancers, consultants, and entrepreneurs thrive.
I take a holistic approach to business coaching where we'll not only make sure your business is driving revenue but also structured to facilitate the life you want to live.
I take you from wishing to doing.
So...how does that work?
This isn't about locking you into a lifetime commitment...
whether it is one session or ten,
I use my customized process to help you design and follow through on a plan to reach your goals.
What are people saying?
Working with Sarah not only provided me insight on strengths and talents that I already possessed but also helped me develop them further for more practical use and execution.
Sarah refocused my energy away from my nerves and towards a clear articulation of my skills. She combined strategies from diverse disciplines to create a bespoke solution for my situation -- more than anything, she knew how to listen for the hidden issues that were tripping me up.
Sarah is an operational mastermind with a gift of driving processes forward so that organizations can optimize their systems and grow.
Sarah has been a huge support and fantastic coach for me as I've grown my business - helping me think through what kind of business I want to run and how I want my business to support the life I want to live.
“There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope. We give them a turn and they make new and curious combinations. We keep on turning and making new combinations indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that have been in use through all the ages.”
- Mark Twain
I’m explicit about my tools and processes so that I can give credit where credit is due. I’m not claiming to have invented these techniques, I just try to combine them in a way that is effective for you. I’ve spent a decade planning projects for people and organizations. For project management and strategy I rely on best practices from Design Thinking, Agile, and many other techniques. On the coaching end, I’m a certified Disruption Advisor through WLJ Advisors and I rely on best practices in coaching from other methodologies and expert coaches that I work with.
My commitments to you as a coach
I will provide you with clear information about our work together, including terms of pricing and engagement, and discuss any questions that arise.
I will provide a consistent quality of coaching regardless of who you are, what you do, or what you are paying me.
I will recognize my limitations and let you know if I’m not the right person to help you. If I know someone else who can, I’ll recommend them instead.
I will maintain a professional relationship with you as a coach.
I will only cite, reference, and recommend people, content, and tools that I truly believe in.
