Freelancer and Founder Coaching

Freelancer & Founder Coaching

Whether you describe yourself as a freelancer, self-employed or as a female founder; running your own business can often feel a lonely and overwhelming.

I’ve been doing it since 2016 so I should know!

Without a team around you, it’s so easy to lose sight of your value and talents not to mention why you started in the first place!

Mindset blockers and confidence-crushers like imposter syndrome and self-limiting beliefs can rear their ugly heads and stop you in your tracks.

By reconnecting you with your purpose, values, experience, innate talents and strengths; I’ll keep you accountable to your vision and goals; motivating and inspiring you to keep going. That way, you’ll design and level up your dream business and ultimately live your best work life.

Work happiness and self-belief are directly correlated with success in business.

By re-connecting with who you are, what makes you tick, what you’re great at and what’s important to you (as well as the need your products and services fulfil in the world), I’ll help you create more happiness at work so that you can shine even brighter in your business.

Happy Female Founder Clients

“Last week, I finished four months of careers coaching with a truly fantastic women, Sarah Clarke of Shine Brighter Consulting. After her help I now feel fearless, exuberant, flying. I now have clarity on my values, strengths that I didn’t even know I had and an artillery of redefined skills and superpowers at my disposal. I have so much more confidence in myself and my abilities and, although I’ve so much work left to do, I know I can bloody well do it. So a huge THANK YOU, Sarah – you have indeed made me shine brighter!”
Felicity Haythorn
Founder - Haythorn Copy
"The 1:1 SHINE programme with Sarah was such a positive experience and helped me make some huge changes in my business and personal life. Sarah is incredibly warm and skilfully guided me on a personal journey to take more control over my career. I was stuck in a rut, feeling low and unable to see a way forward. I now know my strengths and where to focus my time and energy in order to reach my goals. I would recommend Sarah and the 1:1 sessions to anyone.”
Claire Gillespie
Founder - Oglee Poglee
“Sarah is full of interesting insights and is clearly experienced in steering you towards your own answers. Her Shine Online program has felt like a rare glimpse into me, the person I should know the best. Turns out I had a lot to learn! I’m walking away clear on my strengths and values and how I might move forward with those. Definitely recommend to anyone having a work wobble! An unexpected bonus was meeting a lovely, supportive group of intelligent women!”
Hannah Van Buskirk
Founder – HVB Marketing
"Working with Sarah was a real joy and I looked forward to all of our sessions together. Before we started I was confused about what I should be doing with my career, couldn't really pinpoint what I was good at and had had my confidence knocked by a few bad clients. However, throughout Sarah's SHINE program, I managed to unscramble what interests me, the work I enjoy, and what I am good at. HOORAY! Identifying my values and strengths and where I should be focusing my energies, has really spurred me to not settle for work that doesn't align with me or bring me happiness. I would highly recommend Sarah!!!!"

"Running your own business can be lonely – you don’t have a boss or someone above you telling you when you’re about to make the wrong decision and I agonised over the decisions and choices I’d made.

Sarah has been Fantastic – with a capital F! Her cocktail of psychometric analysis and professional guidance, without ever actually forcing an opinion has been invaluable. As a direct result of her 1:1 SHINE programme I have had a huge break through. I can’t wait to get started on this next chapter. It feels totally analogous with my values, beliefs and ambition. It doesn’t mean tearing up everything that’s gone before but I’ve gone from stumbling in the dark to finding the energy to climb the mountain, break through the clouds and I’m feeling totally empowered.
Her fees are extremely reasonable, it’s a structured approach not just a series of weekly chats. I could not have got to this point without her help. Thank you, Sarah. And world watch this space…!”
