Struggling to stay on top of your business?

I bet you are.

Most small businesses are.


When there's only 1 or 2 people to do all the things, getting on top of everything, and being sure it's all happening seamlessly and on brand, can feel like an ever elusive dream.

But, it doesn't have to be that way.


It is TOTALLY possible for you to have an integrated and connected suite of systems and processes for your business - in a way that looks, sounds, and feels like you have created each piece from scratch every time, without having to burn yourself into the ground.

Without taking on loads of new software, subscriptions, and costs.

Without feeling overwhelmed and lacking in skills.

Without the constant "I can't do this" ringing in your head.

Welcome to Thriving with Microsoft 365 - your practical, step by step guide to building the systems and processes of your business dreams!

I'm going to help you physically create the templates, processes and integrations you need - inside Microsoft 365, to stop that loop of overwhelm and panic so you can FINALLY focus on building the relationships and professional reputation you deserve, and wow your audience at every touchpoint with you.

In Thriving with Microsoft 365, you're going to ...

Build your Business Toolkit using Word, Excel and PowerPoint to have a solid suite of everyday templates

Collaborate and Communicate using Outlook, Forms and Teams to make internal and external communication and feedback a seamless and consistent process, for everyone involved

Develop your Systems using OneDrive, Planner and To-Do so that you can work from anywhere, and have everything synced and available for yourself, your team, and your clients

Work Smarter with Automation using Sharepoint, Bookings and PowerAutomate to get back valuable time in your day, week and month to be able to focus on what really matters to you - in or out of your business!

Look, you have enough on your plate, I know.

You are juggling all of the balls in the air - and things are constantly moving and changing! And it's your job to be across all of those moving pieces:

  • Contracts
  • Feedback Forms
  • Presentations
  • Finances and tax stuff
  • Client Meetings
  • Enquiries
  • Marketing...

Oh, and you need to actually do the work that makes you money, and keeps the client happy!

So, I'm making it easier for you to do that in your business!

Introducing Thriving with Microsoft 365, my self-paced online course, designed to help you actually build the features, tools and functions you need, using 12 of the apps and programs that you already have access to inside your existing Microsoft 365 Business subscription.

Thriving with Microsoft 365 is not overwhelming or full of tech speak, which is where so many other Microsoft training programs lose and confuse you.

And you will create a complete element in each lesson of your business framework in every lesson as you work alongside me in these step by step tutorials

Thriving with Microsoft 365 has been designed to give you the RIGHT templates and practical information you need in order to create the systems, processes and tools you and your business need, all from inside Microsoft 365 (*cough* - actually use what you are paying for - *cough*)


I teach you how to create, adapt, and implement those elements so that your business has a solid and functional framework to run from (yeah, I know you have been told that you can get this one product that does it all, but there is LITERALLY NO POINT doing that unless you want to strip away who you are from the process, and squeeze your business into their mould - and that's hardly why you started your biz, right?!).

You get 12 lessons across 4 modules in the course, each with a complete step-by-step video tutorial that walks you through the entire process of building an element of your business back-end. You can watch or listen to them in your own time, at your own pace. There are also LOADS of downloadable templates, resources and cheat sheets that you get to keep and use as you like, AND you can get it all on your phone using our App, so you can plug in and learn whenever and wherever suits you.

It's time to take your business processes to the next level, and get you Thriving!

Without you taking on any new subscriptions, logins, or systems!

Hi! I’m Marianne Tansley...

owner and Founder of Thrive Admin Services, and I'm here to help you - you don't need to struggle with juggling systems, processes and software that drives you crazy any longer!

I'm an admin professional and a business owner, and I've learned a thing or two about what's possible within Microsoft 365. I've been in administration for over 20 years, and I've been helping small business owners and admin professionals to get more bang for their buck from the tools they already have at their fingertips since 2020.

I have made just about every mistake in the book when it comes to working with Microsoft 365. I can teach you what you NEED TO DO to create the tools and systems that suit YOU and what you should steer clear of!

The investment for this rock solid foundation ...

Much less than you would expect it to be!

$1,700 value for only $997 - mad, I know!

Just $997AUD to learn everything that I have spent years learning and implementing? YEP - because I want you to take control of your business and run it your way.

Thriving with Microsoft 365 is THE way to truly get the most bang for your buck from the powerhouse suite of programs and features inside your existing Microsoft 365 subscription, by showing you exactly how to create the customised systems, content, and processes that suit your style of working, your clients, and your team.

I'm doing it for all the right reasons. I want to make this amazing, confidence-boosting, resource-loaded teaching accessible to YOU and as many other admin professionals and small business owners as possible, because I want you to see what's possible with the tools you already have access to.


I've tried other courses before. How do I know this will work for me?

I've designed the Thriving with Microsoft 365 course to be THE step by step practical implementation course for working with Microsoft 365, based on the features and tools that you ALREADY HAVE. You're going to start at the with some familiar friends (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) and work through to creating more complex elements, that link back to the pieces you created at the beginning! It's your chance to gain a true understanding of what each program does, why it does it the way it does, and how you can implement these tools in your own business processes.

I work full-time/am already stretch to capacity/have a gazillion other things on my to-do list already - how do I know I'll be able to get through this?

I create my courses for people just like you, who are already busy and don't have a ton of time to consume large blocks of content and complete homework and quizzes. That's why I deliver individual lessons on a single element that you can consume on the go and take action on AS YOU WATCH AND LEARN.

My business is product-based /service-based - will it suit me?

Thriving with Microsoft 365 is based on the universal foundations of each of the Microsoft 365 apps, that are applicable for all sorts of businesses. When we talk about "will this work for my business/job/role/team" we're talking about general frameworks for each specific piece of content or process. Thriving with Microsoft 365 is designed to give you the outline for each core piece of content, that you can then adapt and use in a multitude of ways across all industries.

Who is this NOT for?

This course is designed to walk you through the actual creation of the pieces of content your business needs - while we start with some very familiar concepts and processes, the course does progress into more complex connections and systems. Everything is explained along the way, and there are LOTS of downloadable resources (templates, swipe files, cheat sheets, and checklists) that you can add your branding to and be ready to use in their business. This course is NOT going to go in depth into the practical functions and uses of each app or process, or help you build a solid foundation of skills to help you understand what Microsoft 365 can do for your business/role. That's not what this isIf you are looking for a foundational skills course for Microsoft 365, check out Microsoft 101.

When is it available?

It's available instantly, in your very own Thriving with Microsoft 365 learning portal. Once the content goes live, you have full and unlimited access to the video lessons, workbooks, resources and cheat sheets. My online course system, Simplero, will send you your login details so you can get started whenever suits you!

Is this in the Thriving with 365 Membership?

No, this is a separate self-paced course, and is outside of Thrive's membership for Microsoft 365 support and content.
