Achieve Clarity and Strategy for Your Creative Business
Let’s face it, you started your small creative business because you are an artistic soul with a passion for beauty, style and all things creative. You LOVE what you do; you provide high value for your clients and strive to provide the best possible service for them. The truth is, creativity will only get you so far when you have big dreamy goals to reach. You have to know how to run a sustainable and profitable business. How do you do this? A clear strategy and positive mindset.
Beyond the Pretty and into strategy
In fact I believe positivity goes a long way to the success you will get. So at times when working with clients I may decide you need my support with your mindset before we can move onto strategy. I offer a range of service but if none of them are quite right please do message me as I am happy to create a bespoke service just for you.

As a result of working with Bernadette I have already made inroads into getting the new business idea off the ground. At a time that I was struggling financially as a single parent and not in a position where my income covered the outgoings, paying for coaching seemed a luxury I couldn’t justify, however I believe that it was actually a necessary investment, to enable me to get to the next stage and out for the financial situation I was in.

I am feeling so motivated, more astute and focused on getting the balance right between work, family and relaxation.
This journey I’ve been on has been hard work, challenging at times, sometimes scary, but so rewarding and enjoyable - it’s the best thing I’ve ever done for my business.

Creative Business Consultancy Testimonial
When I received my report from Bernadette following our meeting, not only was it full of fabulous points and findings but also tools to enable me to put my steps into place. In a busy world, you need to avoid overwhelm and I felt Bernadette had thoroughly thought this through enabling you to confidently start to change you business in an order that would ensure nothing would be left out
I most definitely recommend Bernadette. She is sincere, kind, approachable, confident and extremely knowledgeable in her field. Everyone needs Bernadette in their life. I cannot thank her enough - in a time when I felt lost those few precious hours together not only change my business but found me again

Wedding Business Consultancy – VIP Day Testimonial
Expert guidance, some tough love and lots of support is exactly how I found working with Bernadette. Armed with a renewed sense of enthusiasm and direction and mostly clarity is how I left the days proceedings. It went so quickly and I must say although I started the day not knowing which way to turn. I know I definitely skipped out of the meeting with a renewed sense of direction and purpose and with a smile on my face - I was back in the driving seat!!!

Not only was Bernadette incredibly helpful in transforming my business but she transformed me as an entrepreneur with amazing tips and advice on mindset, time management, productivity, self care and work/life/balance. I have truly never met someone with so much knowledge. The best thing about Bernadette's consulting programme is that she doesn't just care about your business, she truly cares about you, constantly checking in with your wellbeing.
Bernadette's programme is not just a one-off she is the type of coach you need long term.

Frequently asked questions
Do you have a question you’d love to ask, but are perhaps too shy to do so? Then don’t worry I have collated a collection of questions I am often asked. Have a different question? Please do just drop me a line on email@example.com
How does the Strategy Beyond the Pretty work?
This is for those clients really ready to up-level. It is intensive and I require commitment from you , I’ll be going all in and I expect clients to do the same. This is a very hands-on experience with ongoing 1:1 support from me, so if you’re ready to up-level your business and invest in some serious time and hard work, this is the perfect service for you. After our on-boarding call, I will closely analyse your business and produce a bespoke report, so that we are crystal clear on the areas that we need to work on together.
• 2 hour on boarding call to delve into your business
• 8 x 1 hour zoom calls (bi-weekly)
• Concise report detailing the areas I feel we should work on to bring the results you desire
• Free access to any products available
• 7 days a week Voxer support
How much access do I get from you?
Quite a lot. As well as our calls you have unlimited access to me on the voice note app voxer. This is perfect for instant answers to your questions. I am also around to review your goal setting, proof reading, giving advice. I get very involved with my clients. If however you wanted additional calls outside of the agreement this is an extra charge
What if I want to carry on working with you?
This is not unusual. Many clients either book an intensive day with me once a year or go onto a maintenance package, which is monthly calls after our 4 months are up.
How much time do I need to commit?
If booking my 4 month service then I suggest between 2-3 hours per week for calls and doing the work in between the calls. We have 2 x 1 hour calls per month but of course there will be “homework” to do in between.
What if I need to move a session?
I completely understand what it is like to run a seasonal business. I know sometimes your well planned schedule goes a little wrong. So yes if you can’t make a session I am happy to move it. I just ask for as much notice as possible. If you are wanting to move every session we will have a talk about your commitment.
I’m a wedding planner, can you train me?
My consultancy service is more suited for planners who have been in business at least 3 years. Otherwise I may refer you to my other business the UKAWP for more formal training.
However if you have been in business for over 3 years I am able to include ad hoc wedding planner training within the consultancy for no additional charge. This is normally planners who did not train with me and who have gaps in their knowledge.
Can you provide a tailored service?
Absolutely , if you need support but feel the services I offer don’t quite match your needs then I can create a bespoke offering for you instead. Lets jump on a call to decide how best I can support you.
I don’t want people to know I’ve hired you
Our time together is kept confidential unless you give me express permission to announce you as a client, or when you provide me with a testimonial.
