You love having your own freelance business and working from home.

...But you DON'T love how lonely it can get to do everything in your business by yourself.

...And you DON'T love how overwhelmed you feel with everything you're trying to juggle in your business.

...And you REALLY wish you knew what the heck you should focus your energies on when you have limited time.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a business best friend to help you strategize + get organized in business, brainstorm ideas, and provide you with positive encouragement and support so you have the confidence to make serious progress with your business?

Enter the Biz Bestie Program!

It's awesome to be your own boss... but sometimes, you just want to hand the reins to someone else and get them to tell you what to do. I hear you!

Let me be your BBF (business best friend) for an 8-week period.

Through business strategy and brainstorming sessions, I'm here for you, helping you make serious progress with your freelance business in the most enjoyable way possible.

...Because one of the best parts of having your own business is that it is so much FUN to do something you love!

"With the help of Sagan's teaching, I was able to take my business from just an idea in my head to something I am now working on full-time... within the space of only 6 months!"

- Elizabeth, artist + freelance editor

You want someone in your life who *gets it*—someone who:

  • Will manage you + advise you on what/when to work on in your business
  • Understands what it's like to have your own freelance business
  • Gets genuinely excited for your wins
  • Can help you to identify your weaknesses + come up with solutions to your business problems
  • Is able to provide you with constructive (positive!) feedback on how to make concrete improvements to your business
  • You can reach out to whenever you need to talk something over, have a burning question to ask, want feedback on your work, or need to bounce ideas around
  • Gets as much enjoyment from chatting about all things business as you do
  • You can rely on to be there for you on short notice
  • Will prioritize YOU and your business each and every week during the program.

Like the sounds of that? I can be that for you in this Biz Bestie program.

If you need someone to give you an encouraging push in the right direction, or if you're feeling a little lost or overwhelmed with how to get started, or if you want some guidance and actionable steps for what to focus on every single week over the next few months, I can help you with all of that.

"I've received amazing feedback from Sagan—she's an invaluable resource!

I love that her teaching style is very easy-going but realistic."

What do you get in the Biz Bestie program?

You'll get a LIFETIME all-access backstage pass to the School, which will provide you with additional resources for building an awesome business you love ($1,100 value).

When you enroll in this program, you will fill out an initial assessment providing details on your business (or your business idea, if you haven't started your business yet), the obstacles you've been facing, and any particular areas you would like to work on together over the 8-week period.

Then, we will connect via email to chat about your business and organize a strategic plan of action for the next month.

We'll have weekly accountability check-ins to see how things are going with your plan (and to adjust it as needed), and at the 8-week mark, we'll create a plan of action for your next steps once the program ends.

Throughout the 8-week program, you will also get unlimited email access to me—so you can email me at any time in between our weekly accountability check-ins with your questions, thoughts, and ideas for additional feedback, recommendations, and encouragement. We can talk about anything you're struggling with and explore ways for you to overcome those issues.

(Every person and business is different, so if you want to add virtual coffee dates during the program, we can totally make that happen.)

The bonuses...

At the end of our 8 weeks together, you will get an assessment overview of recommendations for the next steps you can take!

...AND you'll get a VIP coupon code for an additional 8 weeks of one-on-one business strategy & brainstorming sessions with me at a reduced rate of 40% off ($400 savings!).

"Being in the Biz Bestie program has been really helpful for me just to have someone to talk to who knows the business, who knows what the struggle is like. For me, this has been a success!

At our first call, I was still at my day job; now, two months later, I feel like I've done a lot and a lot has changed, even in my own mind. It seems like a short period of time, but so much can happen during that time! This was good timing for me, with the amount of support I needed—it's been great."

About your instructor...

Hi! I'm Sagan, a small business strategist and published author. With a decade of experience as a freelance writer, editor, and social media manager (in both part-time and full-time capacities, working with small businesses, non-profits, corporate entities, and individuals), I have provided supports and direction to dozens of successful students through my online courses.

My 10+ years of experience as a small business owner has included working full-time on my business as well as working part-time on it (while I was also working a stressful, intense 9 to 5 job)—so regardless of your situation, I have a real-life insight into some of the challenges you might be facing.

The first time I was a full-time freelancer many years ago, I made a lot of mistakes and failed to the point that I had to go back to working at a 9 to 5 job while I worked on my own business on the side... but I was able to learn a TON from that experience, so that the second time I became a full-time business owner (several years ago), I had a great deal of success!

It's not like I started out magically knowing everything about business—nope! What I teach you is stuff that really WORKS based on real-life testing. I've been where you are, struggling with your business, and I can definitely empathize with your situation.

Moreover, I do NOT believe there is any single right way to have a successful business—which means that I'll work with you to find unique, customized strategies and action steps that are right for YOU!

I'm not going to just feed you the exact same thing as a dozen other solopreneurs. You're guaranteed to get personalized recommendations and customized tips + ideas that make sense for who you are and what your unique business vision and goals entail.
