Thriving Setups

Thriving Setups are intensive 1-1 VIP sessions with Marianne from Thrive!

Stop thinking 'why won't this just work', and let's work together to create the PERFECT Microsoft 365 setup for you, and how you do business!

I SEE YOU

You're the one who is shattered at the end of the day, after struggling to set up your client files and share content in a way that doesn't crash your mix 'n' match setup of systems.

You've spent hours Googling how to set up OneDrive or Teams ... only to be met with forums full of tech-speak, and 'recommendations' to buy this linking program and book that course to learn how to use it.

You've connected with other women in business, your existing network, old colleagues, and every FB group you can think of to find a way to just make the pieces you are already paying for talk to each other ... but are sick and tired of the fluffy advice that doesn't actually show you how to do it.

You're ready for some straight-talking, practical advice, that will work with you to create a system that makes sense, and just works.

How does it work?

Thriving Setups are all about creating a space where we can work together, without distractions, to build a connected solution for you and your business within your existing Microsoft 365 business subscription!

Using my own experiences, trials and errors (and there were lots of errors!), and a common-sense approach to business systems and processes, we work together virtually or in the same room to create what you need in real time.

Come away with the tools, tips and knowledge you need to work smarter and reduce the overwhelm!

I'm all about easing your workload. For you, that could look like:

Client Portals

Creating client centric spaces for collaboration and content sharing, without the tech and jargon barriers

Branded Content

Setting up a suite of templates to make it easy for you to create your expert content for clients

Data Data Data

Integrating your spreadsheets with dashboards and approvals so that your business finances simply flow

You gotta love a system

Create practical frameworks for lead tracking, managing your client work, or simply seeing the big picture

The Thrive Process:

  • Once you reserve your Thriving Setup, you'll book a date(s) for your session(s), and I'll send you a short form to give me an idea of what you want to cover in our time together.
  • You will receive a calendar invite with the login details if our session is virtual, or the times and locations for our face to face VIP day.
  • We will start our session by reviewing your wishlist. We'll spend our time together working through the list, ensuring you get to test and play with everything we create along the way. There will be a couple of breaks along the way (whether virtual or in person).
  • After our time together, you will receive a summary of what we achieved, and how, as well as recordings of any virtual sessions held in Teams.

Thrive uses Microsoft OneDrive, Planner and Sharepoint to manage our project, content and workflow. You'll have access to everything at all times, as well as being able to contact Marianne by email or chat in Teams whenever you need to!
