Following success formulas someone else prescribed. Committing to to-dos when your heart isn’t in it. Struggling. Stressing. Taking on clients you don't LOVE. Writing and rewriting goals that never get done. Adhering to someone else’s definition of success. Praying for your big break. Dabbling in marketing. Spinning your wheels. Making sacrifices.
And yet, you continue making them, accepting them, and worse yet - expecting them.
You pass on time with your kids because that email must be sent to your list (and feel guilty for it). Say no to drinks with girlfriends for the third time in a row. Fear you’ll get so wrapped in business that you’ll forget who you are. Work into the night and spill over to the weekend. Constantly feel stuck and lost…
...all in the name of building your business.
Biz Blocks was created for women like you.
After doing the virtual retreat week in August, it became clear that what I really needed in my business was guidance and direction. Britt spoke to me and my concerns in a way that really felt genuine – no-nonsense, down-to-earth, but also deep, spiritual, with stories and laughter. I wanted more.
I love how Britt combines the inner work with the outer work in her programs. I got a lot from the work of deliberately connecting with our fears and resistance, and then doing the external work anyway.
I love the Q&A sessions, even when I didn’t have a question or was feeling shy about speaking up. Hearing the other women’s questions, and how Britt thoughtfully answered them, helped me to see new aspects of my business that I might not have even considered otherwise.
What I’ve taken from (Britt's programs) is that it’s okay to be my unique self in my business, and that this is what will attract my ideal clients to me. Before, I was concerned that what I was offering was too “out there” and that I had to dial it down in order to be successful. By taking this course, I’ve discovered that in fact I need to be myself even more openly, and that will bring the right folks to my business.
Until I stepped into this work, I didn’t realize that what I really needed in my business was support. I was trying to learn all of this stuff on my own, and while I’m a good learner, there’s just too much out there. I was flitting around from thing to thing and getting nowhere. I now understand that having that guidance and direction from someone who has done this herself is priceless.

DECIDE & PROGRESS: Get clear on what success means to you, not some six-figure guru and his pointless secret formula. Lock down your vision of how business and life blend given your unique circumstances. And start building the blocks of your business from there
TOOLS & ACTIONS: For those moments where you second guess yourself. Or need to make a decision and want to consult your gut. Get the tried-and-tested practices to use when you’re being called to compromise your time and invest it in a way that’s right for your life
VISION & CLARITY: Build a crystal-clear vision of what you want to create: in your work, finances and personal life. Get concise, measurable, do-able steps to move toward that vision so you can actually see the results of the work you’re doing. And even better: you’ll feel them in your gut
SACRED SCHEDULE: Engineer a schedule that’s based on doing what you love and making time for everything you need. This isn’t about being ‘busy’. It’s about taking control of your time so you feel free (wouldn’t that be somethin’?)
BOUNDARIES & CONVICTION: How to say no to clients and be taken seriously. Set boundaries and stop the guilt. Never feel like you’re letting someone down or second guess yourself again. We give you the tools to be at your best (and most respected) in your professional life and personal life
VISIBILITY: Expertly handle the inner critic that whispers: I’m not good enough. Break the shackles of imposter syndrome. And elevate your business brand like a boss.
SUPPORT: Be immersed in a community that’s got your back. Learn from their experiences and share your own. Be seen, heard and supported. Get feedback on your work and never feel alone in business. Ever. Again.
Just a few months ago I had contracted a business broker to find out what would be required to sell my business-- I was frustrated confused , overwhelmed. I wanted to grow my business but I literally didn't know what my next step would be. How do I form a strong team? How do I not work so much? Why am I always repeating myself?
The first thing that happened (from this program) is I found the joy for my business and I like going to work again. I also feel like I'm not alone. (Working with Britt) I found myself looking at situations from a different perspective and things have started to move -- the energy has become unstuck. I'm clearer and I see how that gets things moving !!
The biggest thing I've noticed (working with Britt) is that because I'm clearer I communicate better with my team and things are running better. I feel like I'm in the drivers seat now -- not running in place. I have taken a few business classes over the years and I would get so frustrated because I just couldn't get it! I felt wrong and inept because I couldn't stand the freaking spreadsheets that "good business people" were supposed to have. I have always felt there had to be more to it than that. This work truly resonates with my spirit and I'm sure lots of other women may feel the same way...so thank you for what you do!!!

I just want to say that I was thinking today about our call in September when I was hesitant to sign up for this program. I was thinking back to only 7 months ago when I couldn't pay my bills. I was panicked every week literally trying to figure out how to make it through the week on some REALLY low budget meals for my kids. I can eat fruit again because I can afford it! (and I deserve it). I just paid all my bills the other night in ONE sitting because I not only have enough money, but have a bunch extra. It's just crazy.
AND the amount of inner work I have done has been transformative, spiritual and just fucking crazy. :) If I type anymore, I'll start to cry and I have some work to do so I'll save that for the retreat. :)
Thank you for this network of fucking rockstars and for all your support and knowledge. So grateful.

I LOVE pit bulls. And tattoos. I love my kid. I believe in gratitude with attitude and I moved myself, my 7 year old, and our two pit bulls from New York to Portland so we could have the life we had previously only dreamed of.
And when I started my business, I was broke. The father of my toddler had left us for a 23 year old. I was on food-stamps, broken in heart and spirit, and waitressing 6 nights a week to make ends meet.
I may have been broke, but I also had a vision I was committed to. It started with my coaching business, and evolved into a belief:
To do business a different way. Grow my business and nurture myself. To be with my kid as much as I wanted to (pulling her out of school to unschool for two years when she needed it). To not be a slave to my business, but for it to support my life.
I had no Plan B. I was balls-to-the-wall with my focus. And my old vision is now my current reality- I went from food stamps to 6 figures working on MY terms: 4 days a week (most of the time :)) Knocking off work when my kid gets home from school. Taking as much time off as I want. Battling my inner critic to get up each day and work ON my biz- not just IN my biz.
I’m not a fit-in-the-box, follow-the-herd, only-one-formula-to-success kinda woman.
I’m thinking you aren’t either.
So you have a decision to make.
You can do business this way …
Struggle to keep all the balls in the air while not feeling very good at any of them.
Be pulled between the desire to devote yourself to business and enjoy the finite time you’re on this Earth for.
Barely make ends meet and not figuring out a smart way to do business (that doesn’t involve late nights and weekends)
Accept that this is it. One step forward and two steps back. I can’t change. Unfocused. Too much to-do. What’s a weekend, again? Hustle, hustle, hassle. S-s-s-t-t-t-r-r-r-e-e-e-s-s-s-s.
Invest in yourself. Don’t wait for ‘someday’ when your luck will change, or when you have ‘more time’, or are ‘in the right head space’ to do business smarter.
Consider your life 12 months from now. What do you want it to look like? Will you have worked on your negative thought patterns and started saying no to bad business? Will your business have the foundations it needs to support your life? Will you have stopped compromising?
And the biggest question is this ….
If not now, when?
Join Biz Blocks. And let's start doing business.
I've taken LOTS of online offerings before, and often don't complete them, or feel like I don't get enough out of them to actually effect my biz. What makes this one different?
BOY, do I HEAR you! I, too, used to buy courses and programs that sounded AMAZING to me (there's some GREAT sales copy out there!) and then as it was dripped to me, or I went through the modules, I totally lost motivation and focus-- often not even finishing the course (but of course, still PAYING for it long after I stopped using it). YUCK. THIS is why every course I offer comes with support- my support online and in group calls, and the option for even MORE support in the form of small group accountability calls that you can choose to have if you know that's how YOU learn BEST.
These levels of built-in support are created to give you as much PERSONALIZED attention and accountability as you know you need. I know that feeling seen, heard, and supported can literally be the difference between doing the work and feeling good about it-- or having it be one more figurative item collecting dust on the shelf, causing you to remember letting yourself down EVERY time you see it or think about it.
In my programs you can have as MUCH or as little support as you need- but when you want us, we're here! I know firsthand that building success takes SUPPORT first and foremost--ask any successful woman you know. And what gets ME out of bed in the morning is the joy of supporting women. (Plus having to feed my kid before she's off for the day. Oh, and letting the dog out. That's a motivation, too. But getting to support you REALLY helps :-))
How long do I have to complete this? How long will I receive support for?
I know that you're SUPER busy, woman. So we've set up a structure that allows you support for AS LONG AS YOU LIKE to complete these 6 modules. We're jumping you off with some hand-held support to get you focused and clear about what you need out of this program-- you'll begin your program with a private, 1:1 goal-setting call with the team accountaibility coach. Then, you have ongoing access to support in a variety of ways--our monthly Q&A calls, "office houses" with our accountability coach, additiona support through Tribe of Sacred Rebels-- we believe in surround-sound support ova' here.
AND...if you're the kind of woman who believes in padding yourself as WELL as you possibly can with the support you know you need to succeed (I'm with YOU, woman!) you can even ask my assistant about scheduling private calls with me, personally- we discount them for you from the regular rate for as a Biz Blocks member in the program. We're interested in your success- so tell us what you need.
What if I want MORE support- like an accountability partner?
I strongly encourage accountability partners. You can ask one of the other women in the group if she wants to hook up with you for the five months, and I've even prepared a special "buddy call" outline for the two of you, to give your accountability calls some structure. Just let me know when you want it! One of the best "side effects" of working with me is the amazing, supportive community you'll be joining. My clients show up for each other in a way that many women have told me they don't SEE in other groups. Get ready to feel as supported and seen as you'd like to be :-)
What if I have questions? Can I get on the phone with anyone before I enroll?
TOTALLY. We're here to help you. If you have questions or concerns that you need addressed before you're comfortable enrolling, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll get you sorted, STAT. :-) Supporting you is our highest priority.
