Let's get real for a minute - 

You didn't start your own business to be wasting hours of your day faffing about with formatting and tables in every document you touch ... did you?

You're a go-getting, savvy business owner who wants to help more people by getting your proposals, agreements and technical reports out to your clients, so they can take action and achieve their own goals.

Yet somehow?

Every document you create is taking you more time than you have, and you still aren't happy with the finished layout.

Clients wouldn't be able to tell which reports are definitely from you, because none of them look the same!

Hours of your life have been wasted trying (and failing) to line up tables and images, only to give up in frustration.

You cringe as you hit send on your reports - that's how bad you feel about them!

You KNOW there is more that you could be doing with Microsoft Word to make your documents look, sound, and feel like the trusted expert you are.

In fact, in can take as little as 1/10 of a second for someone to form an opinion about you, which could have a huge impact on whether they trust you as the expert they need.

So let's make that decision super easy for them!

It's time to take control!

The EASIEST way for you to take control when it comes to your documents is to understand how the different elements and tools inside Microsoft Word work - so you can pick and choose which ones will truly level up your business documents!

The reason your current efforts haven't been working so far isn't because there's a problem with your content, or that you aren't smart enough to do this.

It's because ...

The way you think about working with Word has to change

The days of WordArt and Clippy are long gone. And juggling all the balls in your business means that you need some quick wins when it comes to creating documents that are on-brand, functional (for you), and professional-looking (for your reader).

(Which means you need to have some solid foundations in place).

You should always start from a solid foundation

Just like every other aspect of your business, a system is only as good as the foundation its built on. You know Word. You've been using it for years.

But are you using it well? And are your documents built on a solid foundation, or are you simply writing over something that worked before ... again and again, until one day it blows up?

When you have a solid, practical foundation for building your different document types - 

You can confidently create any type of document you might need across your business, knowing that each layer you add is secure and will work. Every time.

Here's a little truthbomb for you ...

Your clients are the BEST ambassadors for your business (fo' real).

And the impression they have of you isn't based on what you said to them in the pitch meeting, or what amazing insights you deliver.

It's based on what they see and feel during their time working with you - and that includes when they get your proposal, agreement, reports and invoices.

Every touchpoint counts! 


Sending out proposals with confidence and ease as you need to, because you have a true document template you can rely on, every single time.

Never wondering where the time has gone on that report, because you are no longer spending hours faffing about with tables and images!

Heading into your day with purpose because you know that you will actually get things done, instead of falling into a procrastinating, doom-scrolling, panic at your first document.

Well, imagine no more!

I'm about to show you the way to STOP going round in circles with your docs and finally get the skills and confidence you deserve ... all at your own speed!

I'm ready to Thrive!
