If you want to achieve your dream of leaving the corporate world to focus fully on your business as quickly as you possibly, you need to learn to work smarter rather than harder.
Having to build your business alongside your job is the reality for most people because starting a business takes time and you still need to pay your bills in the meantime.
But this means time is not going to be your friend...
Not only will you only have limited time to dedicate to your business each week, but that time then needs to be split between all the different aspects of your business you have to juggle.
You're keen to get through the transition phase where you're having to juggle your business, a job and your home life as quickly as possible, not just because you want to be free of the corporate shackles, but because you know it'll be exhausting and there is only a finite amount of time before you burn out.
You're quickly discovering there is so much more to learn about what it takes to run a business than you anticipated and you know that if you want to achieve your goals quickly, you don't have the time or energy to try and work it all out for yourself.
You don't mind making sacrifices in the short term as long as you can see there will be an end point not too far in the future.
You can accelerate your business start up journey by getting one to one support to help you develop and implement your Exit strategy...
This 12 week coaching package will be tailor made especially for you, helping you to plan and design your business, and identify what will work best for you. And it will help you understand what the must-haves and nice-to-haves are so you know where best to invest your time, energy and money.
You will get all the guidance, support, inspiration, encouragement and accountability you need to get your business off to the best possible start.
I will help you tap into your talent and build a business around it, allowing you to make the impact you want on the world whilst also achieving your own life goals.
I will shine a light on the underlying issues that are really holding you back and stopping you from moving forwards.
And I will highlight the possibilities and opportunities available to you, even if they’re currently beyond your imagination or your belief in your own abilities.
I know you have the talent to deliver what you want to sell, but there is much more to running a business, and that's where I come in!
So what will we cover...?
Over the course of 12 weeks we will focus on a range of topics, including some of the following...
Doing the groundwork - Identifying the right business for you, including idea generation and validation and rediscovering yourself and what makes you tick

There is life after Corporate...
Hi! I'm Melanie - Business Coach and Strategist for women who want to break free from the constraints and frustrations of the corporate world and carve their own path in the world by building a business that leverages their talents and allows them to create the impact they know they're capable of.
Why...? Because I've been where you are now, and I made the transition. I built my business up the hard way and came out the other end, and now I want to help other women avoid the potential pitfalls, overcome the challenges and aim higher than they thought possible so they can step out from the corporate shadows and shine.
Six years ago, I decided to make the leap and go it alone after trying to cope alone in an increasingly toxic work environment over a prolonged period took a massive toll on my health and self esteem.
But it was far from being plain sailing...
I know what it's like to feel completely overwhelmed, to not know what to focus on next and to start doubting your own abilities. I made the same mistake I see many other budding entrepreneurs do, I skimmed over the business foundations and planning stages so I could jump ahead to the 'sexy' parts of starting a business, such as creating my visual brand and offers.
But the problem was...without really understanding who I wanted to serve and how I could do that I was setting myself up for failure!
I wasted so much time going round and round in circles, and hit brick wall after brick wall.
And then one day the penny finally dropped and I realised I needed to go back to basics and rebuild my business from the ground up. And once I did, everything quickly fell into place.
I saw how I could combine my 20+ years' corporate experience with my own experiences, and the skills, knowledge and experience I developed while starting my own business, to help my ideal client - YOU - to achieve your dreams...
