You became your own boss to do what you love...
not spend endless hours on admin work and customer service.
The answer is
The course that gives freelancers, consultants, and solopreneurs
replicable systems to do their best work in less time.
No fancy software, natural organization skills, or type A personality required.
Dropping balls with your clients
“I know I was supposed to get you that yesterday and I'm sorry I didn't provide an update, I've just got a lot going on.”
Spending all of your time doing admin work instead of what you're actually good at
Like last week when you spent 10 hours answering emails and figuring out what you were supposed to be doing instead of actually doing it.
Letting the logistics get in the way of your expertise
You thought you clearly explained the process to your client but they act like they have no idea what's going on.
Kicking off each project with a clear plan that sets you up for success
"I'm so glad you bought our logo package, here's exactly what comes with that and what the process looks like."
Using easy systems to keep yourself on track and update your clients on progress
“Here's your weekly status report and I've updated the agenda for our check-in meeting."
Closing out your work so that you're their go-to for every project moving forward
Close-out call ✔️
Proposal for next project ✔️
You are an expert in your field but the logistics of running your business are taking over your life and compromising the quality of your work.
Clients and sales won’t translate to success without a process that allows you to deliver on your promises without losing your mind.

I’m Sarah Duran...
professional project manager and organizational expert.
I manage projects for a living and I've been doing it for over a decade. I've overseen all types of projects including website creation, podcasts, program development, trade shows, and research projects.
When I look at things I see process...I naturally see the way things fit together, how to get from point A to B. I'm also an obsessively organized person.
That's not true for everyone and it doesn't need to be. All solopreneurs have to have project management systems but you don't have to be naturally good at it.
I created Project Pro to give solopreneurs all of the professional project management tools, systems, strategies, and hacks I use with my clients every day.
Here's what my clients are saying about me as a project manager...
Sarah has a way of seeing how people, systems, and projects fit together. She has helped us increase our operational efficiency by revamping our systems and processes. She also manages discreet projects with finesse, ensuring that everything is moving forward while also building buy-in and fostering collaboration. I see her as an integral part of our ongoing business strategy as we continue to scale."
Founder and CEO
Sarah is one of the best project managers with whom I’ve ever worked. She’s not only extremely dependable and organized, but she anticipates future needs and potential pitfalls in a project that most others don’t. She’s the type of person I’d always want on a project, regardless of the content, because I know she will always make it better.
Colorado Education Initiative
Sarah is one of the most organized and professional people I have ever worked with. She is an expert in managing projects, people, and facilitating planning. Without her guidance and expertise, I could not effectively manage a collaborative project for 60 teachers across 7 small, rural school districts that span a large geographic area. Her ability to problem solve in a variety of contexts is invaluable.
Regional Literacy Support Specialist
San Juan Board of Cooperative Educational Services
Sarah is an operational mastermind with a gift of driving processes forward so that organizations can optimize their systems and grow. She is an invaluable partner and we are lucky to work with her.
Co-Founder and CEO
White River Strategy
Sarah is an expert in establishing sustainable systems to ensure long-term success of a project. I hope I never have to do another project without her.
