Take that big idea and turn it into a real, living, breathing - profiting - business!

Sally Townsend

I know you are sitting on a cracking idea for a new business or big project for your existing business. But it’s nerve-wracking to imagine exactly how you’ll take that Big Idea and turn it into a real, living, breathing - profiting - business! How do you even get started?

I’m here to tell you, your brilliant idea can indeed change your life, just like it changed mine.

I took a $6k investment and turned it into a six-figure business.

“Oh, but Sally, you probably didn’t even have to work, and had tons of time and money to fall back on - not everyone is in that position!” I hear you cry.

Nope. Oh, that actually makes me laugh! Actually, I was a single mother, and I scraped together the money to kick off my business. I was working full time, raising my then six-year-old, and keeping my side freelance gig afloat. I was completely operating on a wing and a prayer, and not much sleep.

Now I run an online magazine and blog with around 150 advertisers and a readership of hundreds of thousands globally. AND - I’m home every morning when my son leaves for school, and ready to take him to soccer every afternoon. #sidelinelyfe

My Big Idea changed my life, and I know yours could be life-changing for you, too!

Over the years I’ve developed my own unique processes to help me to flesh out an idea to determine its potential, and whether it’s the next project I really want in my life. I break down every element, go through a series of targeted exercises, and by the end of this process I’ll know if this idea is worth pursuing, and have a really clear vision for how to kick it off. I’ll know where I need help and what to outsource, what it will look like and how to present it to my potential clients.

Using these well-tread processes, I’ll help you clarify your ideas, fine-tune your intentions, set meaningful and achievable goals, and figure out the next steps in your journey.

My Big Idea Workshop is designed to give you the know-how to break down your Big Idea, and turn it into less of a pipe dream and more of a workable concept with legs. Lovely legs to take you to grand places, my friend!

You’ll leave with a road map to making your Big Idea into a profitable success.

You’ll get your hands on my digital workbook full of activities, resources and editable action plans to help you take your idea and break it down to determine its viability. You’ll have the tools to plan your first steps, come up with a marketing plan, and most importantly - work out if it’s actually going to fit in with your lifestyle, or help you to achieve the lifestyle you really want.
