HERE’S THE THING...
You started a creative business for a reason. You imagined a different, better future for yourself. One with freedom, flexibility, and fulfillment in both work and life.
But lately, that vision couldn’t feel further from the truth. You’re feeling stuck—completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of things there are to do each day. Finding a balance between work and life has never felt less attainable.
You’re bound to your business—
feeling guilty and anxious when you step away from your inbox for more than a few hours.
You’re tired of the success stories—
the podcasts that jam on 25 hour work weeks that leave you wondering...but how?
You’re feeling distracted—
like your home life constantly gets in the way of work or the other way around.
You’re gaining weight—
feeling that you can’t step away from your desk for an hour or two to exercise.
You’re lacking consistency—
something always seems to come up and it’s hard to find your groove again once your schedule’s been thrown off.
You feel behind—
your never-ending to-do list leaves you feeling as though you'll never be able to catch up.
Your Clients exhaust you —
pulling long nights to stay on schedule or juggling never-ending “emergencies.”
You’re falling into the comparison trap—
feeling that you need to do more and hustle harder to finally be successful.
You’re struggling to prioritize—
the analysis paralysis keeps you stuck from moving forward on anything at all.
And you’re not sure what to do—
you just know that the way you’re living now isn’t sustainable. You know that something’s gotta give.
You’re craving calm and ease in your everyday life, but you struggle to see how to get from here to there without sacrificing the success of your business. And that makes your bigger vision, the one of freedom and flexibility, feel totally out of reach.
Your vision is not out of reach
You just haven’t discovered exactly how to the design it that way yet.
HERE'S THE GOOD NEWS
Change begins with small steps. And small steps begin in your everyday life. Having the right habits, routines, and processes in place will make all the difference as you lift that weight off your chest and design a lifestyle with the freedom and fulfillment you’ve been craving.
Imagine a life where:
You finally make self-care part of your growth strategy—
carving out time for morning yoga or an afternoon run so that you can give your business your all. Not only do you feel better, but your cash-flow does too.
You've learned to simplify—
doing a few things well rather than doing many things mediocre. You've stopped overcomplicating your day-to-day, so you can focus and prioritize the things that are most important to you.
You wake up excited to start the day with a set routine—
one that leaves your feeling refreshed, including a hot cup of tea, meditation, journaling, and a morning swim, before tackling your inbox.
You’re clear on who you are and where you’re headed—
so you don’t waste time scrolling Instagram, second-guessing yourself and falling into the comparison trap, but instead use that time to actually reach your goals.
You’re able to focus and prioritize—
finally making time to work toward those big-picture goals through small, consistent efforts in your everyday life. Your dreams feel doable again, rather than overwhelming.
You feel comfortable, not guilty, Stepping away from work—
confident that your boundaries allow you to provide your clients with higher quality service during your working hours.
Those sound like small things, especially in the face of the dreamy life you envision, but these habits create a foundation for even bigger change.
If you’re not living your daily life in a way that aligns with what you want, it’s going to be hard to move forward.
So while it feels tempting to go straight for the big, glamorous vision, successful change actually begins with small, consistent efforts in your everyday life.
That’s why I created Future You:
So you can feel less stressed and overwhelmed and more calm, productive, and fufilled in your everyday life.
Because when you just read that change begins with the everyday, you may have felt relieved for a minute. But then you probably got nervous again.
Not because you don’t have an idea of where to begin—but because you have too many ideas. You likely have a desktop folder overflowing with inspiration, Instagram collections full of beautifully styled corners, and Pinterest boards stuffed with healthy recipes and 10-minute workouts.
Having ideas isn’t the problem. Pulling them all together into a realistic plan that you then test, evaluate, and tweak all on your own—that’s the struggle. And that’s why I’m here.
Future You is an eight-week organization and time-management program for busy business owners. We’ll focus on your routines—the motions you go through daily—so you can step outside the “someday” fantasy and create that balance between work and life that you’ve been craving now.
Let’s create a beautiful vision for your everyday, and then design a plan to make it real, so you get what you want out of work and life.
In Future You, we will:
- Define the dreamy vision you have for a balanced life and business—so that you can know success when you hit it
- Make it visual with a beautiful custom-designed vision board—so you can see yourself getting there
- Map out a plan for your daily life with realistic steps to make it happen—so you can hone your time management skills
I’ll help you guide your own story rather than watch it unfold.
How it works
Future You unfolds through a series of four 60-minute video calls over a period of eight weeks.
You’ll have access to email support between each call, for those times when you get stuck, have a question, or just need some encouragement.
When the program comes to an end, you’ll walk away with a custom-designed manifesto, so you can continue those consistent efforts long after our work together.
Here’s what we’ll cover in each call:
Tell me everything.
YOU’VE BEEN HOLDING ON TO YOUR IDEAS TOO TIGHTLY.
Before our first call, you’ll work through a set of questions designed to help you get your goals and ideas (no matter how big or small) out of your head, so we can build a plan specific to YOU and your vision.
On the call, we’ll hone in on the story you’re looking to create for yourself. Then we’ll work on the logistics of making it real, talking about your current routines and finding clarity around anything that’s been holding you back from working toward that vision. As we talk, we’ll choose a single goal to focus on throughout the next eight weeks.
After the call, I’ll begin designing your custom vision board that will help you see the life you’re crafting, and begin brainstorming changes you could make to your current everyday life.
Take a deep breath. All your ideas are in good hands.
Let’s map it out.
SEE YOUR STORY THROUGH A NEW LENS.
Now for the exciting part — it’s time to pull these pieces together into a beautiful vision, specific to you. I’ll come to our second call with a first look at your dreamy vision board as well as suggestions for altering your current routines.
Together, we’ll talk about how to bring that vision board to life, mapping out your day with specific routines and habits and talking about possible roadblocks.
I’ll send you a plan for your typical week, one that will pave the way for the goal we’ve chosen.
Then after our call, I’ll send you a plan that you’ll use to start putting your ideas into action! Remember, you’ll have email access between calls in case you get stuck, have questions, or want to share a win.
Once we craft a plan, it’s time to make it real.
We'll see what's working.
YOU’VE TESTED THE PLAN.
Now that you’ve had time to test out your new everyday plan, we’ll discuss what’s working and what isn’t. Change of any kind can be an uncomfortable adjustment, but one with exciting possibilities.
Together, we’ll get specific about the aspects of the plan we need to tweak and I’ll fine-tune your routines to reflect those changes. For example, maybe waking up for morning yoga just isn’t happening — we’ll figure out where to shift it to make it work for your life.
After our call, I’ll send over a revised plan, and you’ll go back into your everyday life to test these changes. I’ll be here as your accountability partner to keep you moving forward.
You won’t know until you try. Testing the plan is a secret to success.
Embrace your new habits.
PULL IT ALL TOGETHER.
On our final call, we’ll check in on your progress and make any final adjustments needed. You’ll have the confidence you need to move forward with your new everyday life, and you’ll have a good understanding of how to evaluate and change your plan when necessary.
After this call, you’ll receive your own personalized manifesto (as a PDF via email) compiling our work together. This manifesto will guide you as you move forward on your own with your newfound clarity and sense of direction.
We’ll build your daily life so you can build your future.
Can you picture it?
Making changes in your everyday life begins with having a clear picture of what your day looks like.
You’re craving a plan to help you bring a sense of calm and ease to your everyday life.
A plan that helps you find balance between work and life.
A plan that helps you organize and maximize your time.
A plan that you can actually stick with because it’s specific to YOU and your business.
At the end of our work together, you’ll receive a custom manifesto: a PDF document that I design to help you find clarity and outline the work that we’ve done.
Pieces of this manifesto will be delivered via email over the course of our eight weeks together. We’ll make changes until we get the final version just right.
Inside your personal manifesto you’ll find:
A quick recap of our calls: all your thoughts outlined in an easy-to-digest format
An overview of how you’re currently feeling vs. how you want to feel
The key roadblocks that are holding you back from your dreamy life
One BIG goal that we’ll work toward during our time together
Your beautiful, custom-designed vision board—specific to you!
A plan for your ideal routine in a weekly format
Action items after each session to work through before our next call
Your guiding principles—a list of what’s important to you to guide your decisions
A one-sentence core belief to guide you
Consider this manifesto your guiding light for the change you'd like to see.
You don't have to do this alone. I'm here to help.
I believe the actions you take daily have far more impact than those you take occasionally.
Hey, I’m Amanda, your coach and lifestyle designer.
As creative entrepreneur myself, I started my journey as a brand designer for businesses that felt their current branding doesn’t fit who they are and where they want to be.
Through my design process, I bring intentional simplicity and brand refinement to these scattered, inconsistent businesses so they can feel confident in how they're showing up and bring fresh energy toward their bigger vision.
Along the way, I began to notice that the people behind the businesses often felt the same way about their lives—like they were struggling to focus on the "right" things, overwhelmed and unsure about how to get where they wanted to be.
And I realized that the same principles I use for branding can also help creatives design a beautiful, fulfilling life. Enter lifestyle design: and therein the coaching practice was born.
That’s why I created Future You, a one-on-one coaching program designed to help you stop overcomplicating your day-to-day so you can design a lifestyle you love, because of, rather than in spite of your growing business.
Together, we will focus on your priorities, hone your time management skills, and refine your everyday habits so you can stop feeling stressed and overwhelmed and start feeling calm and at ease in your everyday life. And we do that all without sacrificing the success of your business.
Is Future you for you?
It’s much easier to commit to this kind of work when you have a guide and an accountability partner by your side.
This offering will help you thrive if:
- You have a good idea of what you’d like your ideal life to look like, but are having trouble putting a plan into action.
- You process ideas well by talking them through.
- You have so many thoughts and dreams, but don’t know where to start.
- You’re a visual learner and collaborator.
- You value simplicity and breaking things down into understandable elements.
- You’ve realized you don't have to conform to society's views of the "right" path in life or in business, but you’re struggling to put that into practice.
- You’re done with making excuses and are looking for solutions.
- You are committed, but would benefit from someone keeping you accountable to moving forward.
You may want to look elsewhere if:
- You’re in need of a doctor or a therapist. Remember: I will guide you from a design and strategy perspective.
- You need constant validation that this is the right path. You need to be willing to trust your intuition.
- You’re looking for a one-size-fits-all solution. This is about creating a realistic strategy that works for exactly where you are right now.
- You’re a purchaser, but not a doer. Together, we’ll set the groundwork for where you want to be, but only you can do the work to get there.
