We all get a little lost sometimes.

Strategy sessions for creatives who feel stuck and unsure in their online business.


Do you feel like nothing you’re doing is really working and you’re not sure why?
Have you lost momentum recently, and are struggling to motivate yourself? 
Are you desperate to grow your business, but don’t know how?
If any of these are true for you, then I’d really like to help.

So often we fall into the trap of thinking that we have to figure everything out ourselves. We think we can think our way out of our own confusion. Yet I know from my own experience that this isn’t always the case. 

We are often too close to our own business and brand to see it clearly. We are too deep in the thick of the forest to be able to see the path we need to take, even if it is only a few metaphorical metres away. 

What we need is a fresh pair of eyes, and a new perspective.

But mainly what we need is a strategy. A way to get us from where we are now, to where we want to be. 

 Working on your business without a strategy  is like peddling  a standing bike. It doesn’t matter how much energy you put in, you’re never going to go anywhere. It’s exhausting and demoralising (trust me, I’ve been there). 

A strategy is a map. A map that takes you where you want to go, so you can be confident that the work you are putting in will pay off. It’s a way of making sure that the little things you do everyday add up to take you a big step closer to where you want to be.

It’s a plan of action, but one rooted in the business you want to build – not the one you think you should build. 

We’ll break our strategy session into three main parts:


I’ll send you a questionnaire beforehand so I can get a good idea of where you are in your business. We will then talk through what is working and what isn’t to identify any sticking points – things that might be holding you back. 


We need to know where you want to go with your business before we come up with a plan going forward. We’ll also talk through what you need right now. Do you need a few quick wins to build momentum, or are you happy playing a longer game?


Now for the fun part (for me anyway!). We will work out how best to get you where you want to go. We’ll come up with a few specific actions you can take, things you can add, adjust or change, that will help grow your business in the right direction.

“I’ve never done any form of coaching/mentoring, as I consider myself a fairly organised, motivated person, but I figured I’d give it a go. I’m so glad I did! Fiona immediately got to the core of my ‘unsolvable’ issues and suggested ways to work through them which took account of the reality of my busy single parent life. Also, I couldn’t believe how much we achieved in a one hour call – within 60 minutes I had a clear action plan for the next few weeks and had prioritised my horrifying to do list in a way which felt right for me. I’m so pleased I took the leap, and I can’t wait for another session with Fiona when I’ve worked through what we discussed in the call.”

I sought some mentoring help from Fiona at a point when I was feeling really overwhelmed and unclear in my business. I’m so glad I found her when I did! 

During our Strategy Session Fiona quickly helped me to knit together my rambling thoughts and ideas into an authentic and coherent message and to identify the direction I wanted to go in. She also helped me realise some options for framing my service offerings that I hadn’t fully considered before, which was really motivating. Fiona also gave me the confidence to tune into my own voice and to do things my own way.

Her encouraging, insightful and straight forward approach has helped me to feel so much clearer and more inspired about what I’m doing and where I’m headed in my business.

I would heartily recommend Fiona to anyone seeking clarity, support and confidence in articulating their ideas and moving their business forward. She is warm and encouraging and a light in the dark when you need it most.
Thank you Fiona, for your wonderful guidance and wisdom!

I want you to leave our session with a strategy in place, but more than that I want you to leave our conversation feeling less confused and more hopeful.

I want you to go to bed feeling like you’ve had a good day.

I want you to wake up the next morning knowing what it is you need to do and feeling excited to get on with it.

I want you to believe that you can do this. That you can make you business work, you just needed a little extra help (and that’s not a bad thing!)

Fiona captured the direction I wanted to move in better than I was able to do on my own, and that has definitely created more clarity. She also helped with structuring my thoughts into a coherent message, and helped me see options I hadn’t considered before which was really helpful.

I’m confident Fiona could help you with clarity and support in your business. She’s warm and really easy to talk to, and definitely helps you think things through more clearly. She’s also inspiring in a gentle way, not too pushy.”

“I took up Fiona’s generous offer of a free short coaching session in exchange for helping her with some research questions and I’m so glad I did! Getting Fiona’s opinion and feedback was so valuable and she shared some wonderful insights. It’s clear that she’s passionate about supporting business owners and she really cares about helping you so she gave me lots of suggestions and encouragement. Our conversation really got me thinking and spurred me on.”

Strategy Sessions

What’s included: 

  • One 75 minute conversation with me over Skype (of if you live in, or can get to Frome, then at my local coffee shop – coffee or hot chocolate on me!).
  • An extensive questionaire beforehand to help  me understand where you are with your business so we can cut to the chase on our call!
  • Notes following our conversation with a few bullet pointed action steps for you to take. 
  • One month unlimited email support from me afterwards if you need to check something, or ask any further questions. 


I purposefully keep spaces open specifically for strategy sessions, so there will (almost) always be one available within the next couple of weeks if not sooner. I do this because I know how horrible feeling lost and confused is, and once you’ve made the decision to get some help, you want it to happen as soon as possible! 

If there isn’t a time that works for you please do send me an email (fionabarrows {@} gmail.com) and we can work something out.
