About Sarah

 
 

The successful business you built from the ground up doesn’t need to be uprooted or reinvented. You created it because your ideas are special and your approach works, and your clients know it: they choose you because of who you are.

We know when we see a good thing, too. That’s why we use what’s already working for you and tweak it to make it even better. We help you be the best you by celebrating your strengths and finding ways to strengthen your weaknesses.

The best word to describe how we work: partnership. Through growing pains and uncertainty, we’ve got your back. Our holistic approach looks at the big picture and will guide you through the smallest details. (And while we’re at it, we’ll teach you what all that jargon means in words that won’t make you roll your eyes.)

As partners, we collaborate on game plans to suit your business’s best interests. Our clientele spans industries; whatever your wheelhouse, if you’re running the show we’ll offer you tools and solutions to maximize your potential.

Our services include one-on-one consulting, workshops, and project-based solutions.

I started Anchor & Orbit Consulting the same way my clients started their businesses: with a great idea, clients who were ready to get on board, and a desire to enjoy my not-so-9-to-5. As an independent business owner, I can relate to the hustle.

I constantly read books about business and love to surround myself with the most creative business minds, from designers and accountants to strategists and writers.   

I believe in hard work, tough questions, patience, and a bit of magic.

I live in an apartment at the top of a hill, along with two cats who love to knock over my water glass. I make my home in dreamy Oakland, where I love supporting small local businesses, like my spin and dance studios, watering hole, yoga event, and cafe.

Process

My clients and I collaborate to uncover goals, set timelines, and implement those timelines. Result: goals achieved! This is forward motion for your business, and thus, your life. We work together to figure out the best next steps and do what we need to to make them happen.

 
 
 
Before We Begin
 

01.

Initial Phone Call

Let’s hop on the phone and get to know one another! We’ll talk about what you do, why you do it, and whether we’re a good fit.


02.

Proposal

After our first call, I’ll send you a proposal for our timeline and the pricing / payment structure. This is the last time that we’ll be working separately; everything from here on is a group effort.


03.

You're in? I'm in!

Every business I work with makes me an even stronger advocate. If we’re on board, that means I love your work and you love mine. Let’s build your business.

 
 
 
Our Work Together

04.

Onboarding & Project Outline

These exercises give us both an understanding of who you are, where you're coming from, and where you’d like to be. Once you fill the forms out, we go through them together . This leads us to strategic business planning. (If that jargon makes you want to head for the hills, hold on! I’ll walk you through just what that means and how it applies to your goals.)


05.

Project

Let’s do this! Depending on the scope, we’re either working on a project or checking in a few times a month to help you stay on track.


06.

Celebration!

We’ve done it! Time to get excited about the next phase.
