Creating Freedom From Chaos

with Business Strategy & Systems

Let's Get It Done—

Together.

 You want to feel organized—that deep sense of ease that comes from knowing what's on your plate, what the next right move is, and how (and when) you're going to get it done.

 

You want to map the big picture to the little details with clarity for the messy middle.

 

You want to stop:

 

  • Wasting hours hunting down information you know you saw only yesterday

  • Chasing down status updates on projects

  • Overthinking your project plan and strategy

  • Staying stuck in indecision and inaction while you "figure out" what the next step is

  • Getting lured into setting up yet-another-shiny-new system because the last one isn't working anymore​

Breathe easy, friend. You're in the right place.

I help entrepreneurs and executives design their workflow and systems to feel organized, have peace of mind, and prioritize what matters to them. 

 

Maybe you want help with your operational strategy

 

  • thinking through what you're doing and how you're doing it

  • mapping out a plan of action and making it realistic

  • refining your business model or your approach to client work

  • designing a system to smooth out a workflow, like onboarding clients

-or-        

Maybe, you've got a solid strategy, and you're here for tech support, because—

  • Tech simply isn't your thing;

  • You want to stay focused on day-to-day operations

  • Your team is busy enough as it is

I got you. 👍🏼

About Me

Creatrix of Order.
Sourdough Baker.
Strategic Thinker.

Hi—I'm Sandra. 👋🏼​

 

I've been designing, implementing, and training on databases and business workflow for 20+ years.​

I've managed consulting projects over half a million in USD revenue for companies with 1200+ employees. 

I've been teased before that my brain is like a spreadsheet, but that's missing the mark. 

My brain is a pivot table, and you want me to help you think. ☝🏻

Seriously—I am a technical whiz, and we can set up all the things, but strategic support is worth its weight in gold.

My strengths lie in strategic thinking and activating you into aligned action. 🎯

What I Can Do For You

... is revolutionize your relationship to productivity.

I help you to get organized in a way that aligns with your values.

Storytime! Corporate consulting wore me out. I got trained as a life coach, but really I miss all the spreadsheets. I've blended the two so you get the best of both worlds. Voilá!

 

(If you really dislike spreadsheets, don't worry—that's why I'm here, after all.)

By aligning your work process and productivity with your values, we support the way you naturally want to work, which allows you to stay organized and in your flow. 

You get to:

  • Establish better work habits

  • Clarify your strategic planning process

  • Implement systems that actually create ease 

Sounds pretty good, eh? 😏

Getting Strategic Support—

  • drastically speeds up the process of setup/refinement of your tools—creating the baseline for designing, testing, and refining your workflow

  • increases your confidence in the technical details—which translates to greater initial buy-in and increased adoption of any process changes

  • avoids the inevitable challenges associated with an in-house implementation, e.g., scope creep and competition with other priorities

I don't think I've ever seen all the ideas in my head in one place before, in a way that connected them all together, until I worked with Sandra.

Book a Strategy Week, or a Single Session—

I used to offer single sessions all the time, and if that's really what you want, here's the link.

BUT—I have to tell you that in most cases, the week (or even a half day) is a better fit.

Once I get into the backend of whatever you've got cooking, we pull out all the dirty laundry around your process and systems, and we stir the pot—you're going to have questions.

A single session is exactly that. One session. Frankly I like to love on my clients more than that and make sure the dots are all connected.

In a week we can:

  • plan a project

  • resolve friction in your workflow

  • design and test a process with Notion, ClickUp, or Google Workspace

 

In a single session, we can:

  • resolve a technical question in a particular app

  • map out a strategy for addressing a troublesome issue

  • clarify one piece of your marketing or design a new offer (although I gotta tell you, especially on this one, you're going to have questions!)

 
We're booked for the moment!

Intuition + Kindness + Tech Support = Sandra

What About Notion?

Notion is awesome—​

but so are lots of other applications.

Sidebar: Consulting on only one tool was like operating with my hands tied behind my back.

If you love Notion, great!

 

I do too, and I'm happy to help you start there. 💁🏼‍♀️

If you're tempted by Notion because it's sexy and all your friends are using it...

Uhh, let's have a wee chat, allllright? 🤔

Moreover, the BEST way to use my brain is to let me help you cut through the noise and find a system that works for you (even if that mainly involves a bullet journal).

Planning with you was TRANSFORMATIONAL.

Last week was the first time in over a year where I didn't feel crazy overwhelmed.

I was the same level of productive but more mentally "free" and that mental freedom led to several breakthrough ideas for my life & business.

I can see how, applied consistently over time, this will have huge benefits for my productivity and mental health.

Thank you!

How do I know when a strategy session is a good fit for me?

Bad news first—There's rarely a single right answer to any problem.

I'm not telling you anything shocking right there, but it needs to be said, because if you're looking for a perfect solution you're going to turn into Indiana Jones looking for the holy grail—obsessed and dissatisfied!

Now, the good news—What working with a strategist does is open up possibilities you haven't considered, shining a flashlight on things you've tucked under the proverbial bed. 

A strategy call may be an exceptionally helpful for you if:

✓  You have support and strategy coming from multiple sources and need support synthesizing it

✓ You've shifted your business or approach and want to evaluate systems based on what's working and what's not

✓ You want to weigh the pros and cons on a big decision

✓ You kinda hate tech, and want to run your biz in your journal

-or-

✓ You love tech and simply don't have the time

 

(My clients are often at one end of the tech-loving spectrum or the other. 😏)

Bottom line, it is a 90-min call—so the more focused you on are where the friction is, the more I can help.

 

If you're not sure, drop me a line and tell me what's on your mind. I'll tell you if I think I can help.  I promise to be real with you—it's no fun for me if I'm simply not the right person or do not have knowledge in that area of business!

The best part of working with Sandra is right-brain/left-brain, tech/heart integration.

Most of the entrepreneurs and executives I know are tired.

Bone tired. Weary.

 

Worn out.

Regardless of your risk tolerance, we're all traumatized by the impact the pandemic has had (and continues to have) on our lives.

I imagine you are exhausted, too. And maybe a little anxious about what another winter of being trapped inside is going to really look like?

What if...

Instead of trying to do it all yourself... 

You had support. And—

You didn't have to make all the decisions?

You know you want to click the button. 😁

In a system that I use daily, you taught me 50 different tricks.

You helped me with things that will improve my life in the most imperceivable ways. I see these smallest little shifts being changes that will have compounding impact over time.

Before Sandra, I didn't feel like I had direction. I really want to get started on the new year, and to learn Notion, but I was skeptical of a digital system.

She helped me see exactly what I am meant to be doing and that being of service also means getting paid.

Working with Sandra is an opportunity to get clear on what's important to you, what you really want to do, and the ability to do it analog and digitally.

I knew enough about Sandra to know working with her would be productive, but I was pleasantly surprised by how nourishing and heart-filling it was.

Working with Sandra is a great investment of time and money because you walk away not only with a more developed Notion buildout and a solid review of the past and plan for the future, but also a deeper self-awareness.

Sandra has the perfect mix of compassion and tough love.

 

She has so much knowledge but never makes anyone feel stupid or less than when teaching.

She has so many tools in her arsenal that she had ways to work through everyone's challenges.

Sandra coaches in a way that you don't feel like you're being coached - it feels like your talking to a friend—which made it far easier to turn my learning into practical action.

Sandra really understands how to remove the trauma attached to traditional masculine work and planning styles.

It helps to relieve the guilt of not being able to "do everything" and concentrate on the things that really need to get done.

If you want deep reflection on your quarterly planning done in a way that makes sense holistically and logistically, Sandra can help you get what you need.
