Your friends kept telling you that you should start your own business. After all, you’re a creative person and you’ve got that ‘entrepreneur spirit’ that could change the world.

But after creating your products, setting up your website, and getting those likes on social media – there still seems to be something missing.

You’ve read about all these solopreneurs, mumpreneurs and [insert-personality-here]-preneurs making a kazillion dollars in their online businesses. You’ve taken all their advice – but you just can’t seem to get your business to move forward.

It’s like you’re on the wrong escalator in the midst of a Black Friday sale… And instead of making progress, your to-do list just keeps growing with new ideas and things to work onleaving you frustrated, overwhelmed and worried that you’ll miss out on the rewards of all your hard work.

The possibilities are exciting
But what if this is an unrealistic dream?

You don’t want to spend 70+ hours a week, sacrificing your personal life while clinging onto the hope that one day you’ll spend your days enjoying cocktails on the sand outside your beach-front mansion.

And the most frustrating part? You ARE a motivated person and you SHOULD be able to build a successful business. You just need someone to show you what actually works and give you clarity on what to focus on next.

We get it. We’ve been there too.

We’ve been scared of wasting our money on advice that doesn’t work. Or wasting our time chasing ideas that don’t lead anywhere.

We’ve spent too many lonely nights eating junk and staring endlessly at our computer screens at 3am, trying to find the next ‘AHA!’ idea… without the advice from the mentors that the ‘pros’ seem to have.

But we’ve never given up.

And now we’ve built a
successful business from scratch…
without putting our life on hold.

We met in 2008. We both worked mornings and afternoons in childcare, and spent the rest of our hours doing volunteer design work for a large church in Melbourne.

As motivated and driven people, we’ve also worked side-jobs as graphic and web designers for friends… for WAYYYY less money than we should have been charging.

Over the past 10+ years, we’ve created websites, videos, brochures, logos, books, and design content for large events. We even started a business together in 2010, combining all our skills into a source of side-income so we could volunteer more and quit our main jobs.

(P.S. We never quite got there.)

We’ve always been a great team… but it took Shane 7 years of hard work, persistence, and a few rejections to finally convince me (Sarah) that we’d also make a great couple. I guess he was right, 🤷‍♀️ because we’re now married with kids and we’ve never looked back.

But here’s the thing…

Our busy lifestyles weren’t sustainable. With our regular 14+ hour work days, we were both exhausted and running off adrenaline… and yet were still eating 2-minute-noodles for lunch because we had no money. #professionallybroke

We didn’t accept how overwhelmed we were until it resulted in an ugly, tear-filled meltdown on my knees in the carpark after another long conference. The tears were mine, but the exhaustion and anxiety were a reality for both of us.

After burning out, we made some huge changes.

Over the next few years, we cut back on a lot of things… but we never lost the desire to start our own business; where we could be creative, chase our passions, and follow our dreams.

Fast forward to 2015, when I went on maternity leave with our eldest son. I didn’t want to go back to work – so it was time to start looking at starting our own business from home… but this time, I wanted a real business – not just a side-hustle. When our son was about 4 months old, I created my first adult colouring book and started selling it online. From that day, my love for marketing and helping other businesses was unleashed like a puppy in a ball pit.

When everyone else in my niche was complaining about sales declining, my sales were growing. I went from $200 a month, to $1k a month, to $5k a month… with no more than 25 hours of work between us each week. This was alongside Shane’s full-time job, volunteering and raising our family.

The business wasn’t earning millions; but we weren’t working ourselves into the ground either. We started out with the goal to build a full-time income off part-time hours, and that’s exactly what we did.

Now, it’s our goal to help others grow their businesses too.

It breaks our hearts to see passionate, motivated people burn out or aim for mediocre instead of dreaming big… when it shouldn’t be that hard.

We believe that…

Everyone can build a successful online business with the right tools.
‘Hustling’ is not the answer. You shouldn’t have to work endless hours every day to build your business.
• Building your business shouldn’t come at the cost of your personal life and sanity.
• Family should always come first.
You don’t need big connections to be successful… just big dreams and a clear plan.

When I came across Sarah in my Facebook group, I just knew I had to approach her and get her on my podcast. During our chat, she gave so many amazing tips and advice for Pinterest. She has a way with teaching and provided a tonne of actionable advice for my listeners. I love her approach to business, automation and how she uses content marketing. If you have the chance to learn from Sarah, make sure you take lots of notes! She is also someone that leads with her values which is something I look for when considering a coach or mentor.

That Creative Couple have transformed my business. Their expert advise and knowledge have enabled me to take my dream of starting a business from an idea to reality; giving me practical steps along the way to make the process achievable and focused in directions that have enable quick growth. Their knowledge of marketing and social media platforms is second to none. If you are in business, you can’t afford not to sign up for their training.

Having worked with both Shane and Sarah on many projects over the past 10 years, my opinion of them has only strengthened over time. They are both inventive, resourceful, creative and extremely easy to work with. They are both as comfortable in accepting input as they are to offering it and I always jump at the chance to work with them.
