The Year's End

You’ve been running on auto-pilot for weeks, and you aren’t sure what you’re even trying to do anymore.

You feel like you should be planning a jam-packed, full-on 2018, but you don’t even know where to start.

You want to have a handle on the numbers and finances, but spreadsheets scare you.

You’ve got a huge list called ‘Things To Do In 2018’, but it’s mostly in your head, or on that receipt you might have thrown away. It’s been wedged into that mythical time called “January”.

You want more work-life balance. You’re ready to be really honest about what you want and need on personal and professional levels.

It’s time for a change.

Sound familiar? You’re in the right place. I’ve got something awesome for you:


The Year’s End: a workbook for your small business

The Year's End: a workbook for your small businessI love the promise of a fresh year, a fresh start. I also love spreadsheets.

This year, I’ve created a beautiful package for you to help you look back at 2017 and look forward to 2018.

It’s based on the way I look at my own business: the balance between financial analysis, thinking about my happiness and satisfaction, and of course doing good work.

More than that, it’s based on my work with small creative businesses. I’ve been working with creative entrepreneurs, designers, makers, writers, for over seven years, and I know the ins and outs of selling products online. This workbook assesses all the different areas of your business, helping you to see what’s going well and what needs to change.

It’s also based on my knowledge and experience of what it means to be human. I know that you can do anything, but you can’t do everything. In the workbook and video, I talk about how to find the things that are right for you.

I believe that how you feel is as important to your business as what you do. Indeed, they lead to each other much of the time! So you’ll find plenty of questions about what you want, how you feel, and what you need for each area of your business.

For those who are financially nervous, are prone to over-worrying or sticking your head in the sand, I’ve created an easy-to-use spreadsheet to give you a pretty clear indication of how you’re performing financially. And I talk you through using it and understanding it on a lovely video.


Cost: £25

What you’ll get:

  • A 29-page printable and editable workbook
  • An introductory video
  • A spreadsheet with two sections: looking back and looking forward
  • Two videos on how to use the spreadsheets

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll receive an email to confirm your subscription. The workbook will be sent out from 18 December.


Who it’s for:

The workbook is written for small creative businesses who sell products that they source or make themselves. It’s relatively applicable to service-based businesses as well, as long as you’re willing to do a bit of translation on the wording yourself!

I’ve designed the workbook to be applicable to small kitchen-table businesses, and bigger businesses with teams, premises, and big-figure turnovers. My experience is that, when you’re running your own creative business, the themes are pretty similar, no matter the size.


What you’ll need:

  • A printer to print the workbook
  • Alternatively, a Chrome web browser or Adobe to type into the workbook
  • Microsoft Excel or compatible software to use the spreadsheets
  • Tea or coffee and a quiet spot


“I just wanted to say how useful we found The Year’s End. We had a good session on it over the weekend going through the good, the bad and the ugly!”
