Hello & WELCOME! This is Sarah speaking! Your hopeful & fearless leader.

Through my business, Anchor & Orbit Consulting, I work directly with business owners to help them strengthen, grow, and solve the puzzle that is their business. Seeing the light bulb, having the epiphany, and experiencing results with my clients is awesome.

Below you'll see more about why I created this program. But, before you scroll down, I do want you to know that writing and running this program for 30 participants in 2017 was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life! Luckily, the people who participated felt the same way

An overview:

What I've done is take the subject buckets of a business (goals, productivity, finances, marketing, systems), the patterns that I've uncovered with my hundreds of clients, then created a thought process (or, reframing) through my writing (I call them "resources"). You receive assignments to solidify the subjects — either thoughtful journal prompts or new systems that you will use in your business every day. 

I can't promise this is exactly what you need, but I can promise that if you work through this program, pay attention to each assignment, ask questions when you're stuck, you and your business will shift. 

Which creative brains and their businesses will join me? Designers? Product makers? Idea makers? Content marketers? Healers? The list of potential participants could go on for days. When you apply, it means that the door opens for us to know each other. I can't wait to meet you there.  - Sarah Schulweis

Applications close January 19th — Program begins January 29th.

$375/month for four months ($1500 total — $3500 value!) 


Why are you running this program? 

We love working one-on-one, but that option isn't for everyone - financially, logistically, and sometimes emotionally. What broke my heart was seeing people who wanted to take the leap, but weren't in the place to take on a consulting package. 

THERE MUST BE A BETTER WAY! 

Agreed! So we created a system that would give them an opportunity to participate and grow, but more independently. Each person and business are different, but we know the aspects of businesses that consistently need attention.

OUR GOALS:

  • Strengthen the essential parts of your business like productivity planning, goal outlines, financial growth plans, and general business-running systems
  • Give you exercises that aren't busy work, but definitely work
  • Find opportunity for growth and a happier day-to-day life
  • Remember your strengths and help you stay true to your individual routines and needs
  • Create & compile information that is accessible, approachable, and applicable

HOW?

We start with general information about a subject, move on to details and fine-tune with assignments and follow-up information. The subjects and work along with it can be taken as far and as deep as you’d like.

Working with Sarah was like slipping into a warm bath. I felt enveloped by her guidance and support throughout the course.

Who is this for?

The beauty of this course, and the information it provides, is the layered content. The participants have control over how much time they spend on each subject and are given the opportunity to deep dive, skim, or return to prior assignments. Overall, each type of person that participates thrives by dedicating time away from their usual routine. This new focus aids in growth & transformation.

How does the program work? 

Online Resources | Assignments | Group Calls | One-on-One SEssions

RESOURCE DOCUMENTS —

These weekly materials set you up with the subject, materials, and complimentary research. They’re a mixture of the investigation from our favorite resources, first-hand experience, explanations of tools, inspirational quotes, and more. These are meant to guide your perspective on the subject and help broaden your thoughts about business and your trajectory.  

VIDEOS — 

Paired with some of the resource documents, these videos walk you through the materials & assignments as needed. Learning styles differ, and this provides a new way to hear the information. 

ASSIGNMENTS — 

These assignments are built to help you implement & expand your understanding of the resource information. Filled with questions and ideas, they'll help you decipher what you want and helps us, the course leaders, implement this into your daily life. Throughout the course Sarah reviews and comments on your assignments, so she knows where you are and how things are going.

Four, One-on-one Sessions —

Each participant's needs are different, which makes the one-on-one sessions an essential component of your success in this course. Your monthly, 45-minute session the opportunity to customize the materials so they’re serving your exact goals. This is your chance to ask broader questions, talk business philosophy, and receive extra assignments to help push you forward. This is when you have a focused advocate to help you connect the dots.  

If you're local (SF/Bay Area), you can meet with Sarah in person, or if you're far away, a video call will be just as effective. 

Bi-WEekly OFFICE HOURS/Group Calls —

Digital office hours with Sarah! Starting week 3, after you complete your discovery documents, anyone that would like to come together as a group will hop on a group video call. Each person does a quick check-in with Sarah about how they're feeling and asking some specific questions. This is extremely valuable time to hear how other participants are processing information. This happens every other week, starting week #3. 

EMAIL ACCESS —

You'll receive a few emails a week to help keep you focused and motivated. But if you're stuck, have a question that can’t wait until the group calls, or need some words of encouragement - I am here for you. Email me. Be a squeaky wheel and get what you need from me to move forward with confidence.

If the answer deserves more time than an email can give, we'll make sure to cover your questions in the forum or one-on-one. I have been known to hop on a quick call to help move you along ;)
