What people say about my courses

Monica Loup

Founder, Geo Coaching

Totally binged on your course! What is brilliant, is how you help clarify a strategy and structure it into something much more visible, actionable, and replicable. This is better and more adapted to entrepreneurs than the usual courses and programs thanks to its format and the high level of empowerment and independence for the client. Great stuff!

Macy Robinson

Founder, Uplight Creative + Strategy

I'm running a successful six-figure marketing strategy business, but as my business continues to grow, it's hard to figure out what I need to systematize and how I can most efficiently work with different clients. I learned so much while going through How to Run Your Business Instead of Letting It Run YouI've been able to create some processes to streamline some of the work I've been doing, and love having a repeatable process that I can look to when it comes time to systematize something new.

Leah Meyers

Founder, The Freelance Solution

Since working with Sarah and taking her course it has transformed how I run my business. I have a new perspective and have MORE time because I have implemented the processes that Sarah recommends in the course. I truly feel like I am now Running My Business Instead of Letting it Run Me.

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 started my company, Fruition Initiatives, to help people and organizations turn their ideas into action – to bring their goals to fruition.

I’m an operational expert and have been a project strategist for over a decade. 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.

I created Fruition Academy to give other solopreneurs the tools they need to take control of their time, work, and life.
