Are you an entrepreneur, a microbusiness owner or a freelancer running your own one woman band?


Fact: you are more at risk of burnout because you are passionate about your business, you are more socially isolated, you have limited safety nets, and operate in high uncertainty (more so now than ever).

Then layer in the fact you’re female and you take on everyone else’s stress and woah there, you’re in danger sister.


What morning did we forget to look after ourselves? 


When was it that we started to wake up at stupid o clock thinking of all the things we needed to do, all the plates we have to spin?


What year was it when we decided running a business was a good idea?


Are you surviving... but only just? 


Do you wonder how everyone else seems to have it nailed?


Signs you could be heading for burnout:

  • You feel tired at the thought of another day dealing with crap no-one else can do for you.

  • You feel exhausted and sometimes overwhelmed with all the shit you have to do. 

  • You feel emotionally drained.

  • You are frustrated, cynical and all a bit meh.

  • You feel like you’re always on even when you’ve told yourself you’re not supposed to be on.

  • You feel like someone is going to catch you out.

Sound familiar?

Imagine...

  • Being able to manage your feelings, the positive and the negative ones and still being able to press play on your day.

  • Having the knowledge, the tactics and the toolkit to know that you are not just surviving but thriving and when you are just surviving (because that’s okay too) you know how to help yourself thrive.

  • Having one of those days (because you are a business owner and they will always happen), trying to make decisions that makes your head hurt whilst delivering on all those demands and trying to get to the post office before 5pm but you know how to handle them, you know how to positively move forward.

  • Being in control of your thoughts and feelings and not letting them overwhelm you.

  • Being kind to yourself every day (because when you are kind to yourself everyday, when you have written your own wellbeing prescription, you will then have the bandwidth to deal a little better with everything that life and work throws at you).

    Simply put, once you look after yourself better, you will be able to run your business better.
  • It’s time to write your own wellbeing prescription.


    A 10 module, 10 week course that will help thrive in business - and in life. No more just surviving.

    Fact: You cannot run or grow a business without looking after yourself first, your mojo, your mindset, your mental wellbeing.


    In this course you’ll learn how to press play, how to conquer imposter syndrome, how to stop procrastinating and how to create habits that help; not hinder.

     

    It’s time to stop talking about self-care as if it’s something we can choose whether we invest in - it’s time to stop talking and press play.  


    This is your 10 step sprint to sanity, to being able to spin all the plates without having to start your day at 5am.


    Every day we make choices. 


    We choose to press snooze on that alarm. We choose to show up for work, for our friends, for our family, for each other.


    But when do you choose yourself? 


    When do you choose you?


    When do you show up for yourself? 


    Taking care of yourself first means you are then in a better places to grow your business AND take care of all the other people that rely on you in your life.


    In this bonkers world, it’s now more important than ever before to help ourselves, because that bloody fairy with her magic wand seems to have disappeared.


    Life is a matter of choices. Every choice you make, makes you. Don’t wait. Don’t say you’ll do something about it after the weekend, next week, next month.


    Press Play NOW.

    An exclusive and practical 10 module programme for female run businesses, for micro business owners and freelancers.


    The Press Play on You programme will provide you with a ten step springboard to sanity, allowing you to understand self-care, build and develop your emotional intelligence and know what you need to do for you without stressing out about the need to do self-care.

    • Module 1: Get To Know You

      How well do you really know you? In module one you will undertake your audit of you so you know what makes you tick, or makes you pause. (Worth £395.00)

    • Module 2: Self Awareness

      How we think and feel about our self guides all of our responses to our behaviours and actions. It’s one of the core competencies in emotional intelligence. If you don’t have self-awareness then no matter how smart you are, success is gonna be tricky. We look at how we talk to ourselves and how we can be our own cheerleader. (Worth £395.00)

    • Module 3: Self Management

      Emotions don’t just happen to us, we have a choice, we can do something about them. It’s about choice. In this module we look at our choices and how we can create realistic, healthy habits to put ourselves first (just for a little bit). (Worth £395.00)

    • Module 4: Press Play

      How do you stop yourself procrastinating on pause. In this module I share the best trick I have learnt to help me press play, to help me write this course on a Sunday, to crack on. (Worth £395.00)

    • Module 5: Routine Rules

      What is your routine? What should it be to help build and aid your mental wellbeing? (Worth £395.00)

    • Module 6: Reasons to Believe

      It’s time to step up and face that imposter syndrome. It’s time to stop letting that inner critic win and overwhelm you. This module tells you how. (Worth £395.00)

    • Module 7: Your Stress Cycle

      Did you know you have to complete your stress cycle every day to stop yourself burning out? Did you know there is even a stress cycle? Did you know there is scientific based evidence on the simple, practical applications you can do to complete your daily stress cycle and minimise your chances of burn out? (Worth £395.00)

    • Module 8: Your Comfort Zone of Growth

      Do one thing every day that scares you..NOPE. Why o Why would I write a course all about reducing our stress levels so we can thrive and then tell you all to jump out of your comfort zone straight into your fear zone. In this module we bask in our comfort zone and look at how we can grow there within Maslow's hierarchy of needs. (Worth £395.00)

    • Module 9: Practice Makes Perfect

      No no no no and no. Practice makes progression. Perfection is so 1990s. Let’s be real and look at what we should practice, how we should practice and how often so we can grow, evolve and run our businesses as thriving entrepreneurs. (Worth £395.00)

    • Module 10: Your Wellbeing Prescription

      This is it. You’ve done it. In Module 10, you will refer back to your audit, to your strengths, your emotions and you will commit to cracking on and putting you first so you are looking after your mindset, your mojo and your mental wellbeing. You will write your own wellbeing prescription to help you thrive. (Worth £395.00)

    Sarah is a brilliant educator. We had a couple of very productive and exciting sessions with Sarah coming up with content strategy and plan for our business. Previously we had felt overwhelmed at the prospect of doing this ourselves but she has knocked us into shape and now it seems definitely achievable. She is also seriously good fun!

    Thank you very much for the training course. It was immensely helpful. Like I mentioned, besides many new tactics of self care, time management and people management, you provided affirmation on many things that I may be aware but wasn't entirely sure at the time. And how I can move forward.

    Sarah is insightful, confident and supportive. She is motivating, thought provoking and challenging.

    The way you talked in such an open, relaxed manner with humour that was honest and self-deprecating at times was so refreshing. I like your style. You seem like 'my kinda woman.
    It’s really quite simple: it’s been written by ME, Sarah Knight. I'm an expert trainer, a qualified NLP practitioner, a business owner, a single mum, someone who has been spinning all the plates, someone who has experienced all the wheels falling off and someone who is qualified to provide practical, real, achievable actionable tools to help you thrive while you are running your business. Someone who has experienced life, experienced running her own business and perhaps the most powerful reason… I’m real, authentic and really blinking practical about what we can achieve as women in business. I am a qualified NLP practitioner, a queen of human skills and I’ve run and built businesses for over 20 years. And I keep it real. And sometimes a bit sweary.

    How many courses have you seen that are written by a life coach with no experience in life, with no wrinkles to tell the story of pain, of passion, of failure, of resilience? There’s going to be no telling you how to get up at 5am, write your gratitude journal, meditate, do some exercise and then start your day.

    This course is different. It’s real. It’s achievable. It’s rooted in scientific fact, it’s designed to build and develop your emotional intelligence which will not only help your mental wellbeing it will help you be more creative, more proactive and more efficient. There’s only 24 hours in a day and this course is really practical about what you can actually achieve in your waking hours.

    Press Play on You is the first of its kind that not only teaches you what you should do to look after yourself, to be more self aware, to manage your emotions, to separate your thoughts and actions but also provides practical solutions to creating habits that don’t get binned as soon as the wheels comes off.

    Top FAQ's

    • Is Press Play really for me?

      Yes, if you give yourself permission to take some small actionable steps every week for ten weeks.

      I want to make sure you are setting yourself up for success. I don’t want this course to be another thing you HAVE to do. And, crucially, I want you to complete it and feel the benefit. So let’s be real.

      This course is perfect for you if you are ready to press play, if you are ready to take responsibility for your own mental wellbeing and figure out your own prescription for mindset success.

      This course is for you if:

      - You are a one woman band - you do it all, spin all the plates
      - You own a microbusiness
      - You are a female entrepreneur
      - You are a freelancer or consultant
      - You feel on the edge of burnout
      - You are prepared to invest in yourself and take small actionable steps every week for ten weeks
      - Self-care is on your to do list but you never seem to do it

      The course is designed to fit in with you, with your life and your business. It is presented and accessed in easily digestible chunks so you have the time to let them sit and can go through the programme at your own pace whilst still moving forward.

      However you need to put some work in, you need to prioritise you for a little while. And to get the benefit from the programme you have to start by giving yourself permission to do it - as if it is an essential meeting that you would not cancel.

      If you can’t commit to do that right now then focus on what you can do and be kind to yourself.

    • What if I don’t complete the course modules every week?

      The Press Play on You programme has been set up so that it doesn’t overwhelm you and take over your week. It’s built in small digestible chunks so that every week you can look at a different theme, a different element of your wellbeing prescription. It won’t take you long, but if life does get in the way one week, you simply pick it up the next week. You have access to the course for six months so you have plenty of time to complete it.

    • How long will it take me to complete?

      Ten modules. I recommend you complete one module every week giving you chance to reflect on each area and practice your new learnings. Time well spent. Modules will take between 30 minutes - one hour to complete - and then you have to allow your brain time to process the information (that’s the easy bit).

    • What can I expect to achieve from the programme?

      The course is action oriented so you put the work in, so you can figure out what works for you, so you can build and develop your emotional intelligence which will ultimately help you be more efficient, more productive, more creative and crucially mean you are less likely to suffer from burn out.

      Once you have been through the course, the practice starts, creating the habits and routine that will help you press play every day.

    • What’s your refund policy?

      Complete all the 10 modules, complete all the worksheets, invest in yourself AND if you don’t learn anything about how to press play, how to stop procrastinating, how to look after yourself a bit better so you can thrive, I’ll refund the cost of the course.

      You have the legal right to cancel the contract between you and Mind The Gap during the period of 12 hours from date of purchase providing none of the course literature has been downloaded and none of the course undertaken. Should any aspects of the course have been downloaded it is 100% non-refundable.

    • Where can I find out more information about you?

      I have a website where I talk about my corporate offering and you can find out a bit more about me, and Mind The Gap, here.

      I also write a blog which talks a bit more about my life and my not so smalls. And, of course, all the social channels below.

    Proud To Work With:

    I developed Press Play on You because I realised that even in business everyone needs a person - their person.

    Everyone running a small business, whether you call yourself a freelancer, a consultant or a one-woman band, you need to know how to press play - and give yourself permission to do it. (Fact: this is even harder to do if you’re the female of the species).

    The good work has to start with you and without looking after yourself (more important than ever in these stupid times) then developing and growing your business is going to feel like pushing water uphill.

    Don’t let another month go by before you put yourself first, don’t let another week go by before you realise you have a duty of care to yourself.

    Ask Yourself Honestly:
    > Do you deserve to put yourself first?
    > If you feel sane, will your business do better?
    > What if you took away just one action from the course and that allowed you to look after yourself a bit better and stop procrastinating on pause?

    “If what you are doing isn't working, do something else.”

    Don’t forget, I get it. I developed this course to support people like me based on my expertise, 25 years’ experience and a breadth of knowledge rooted in scientific fact developed through my work as a NLP practitioner. I’ve developed a course I wish I had had access to.

    “Emotional intelligence is a way of recognizing, understanding, and choosing how we think, feel, and act. It shapes our interactions with others and our understanding of ourselves. It defines how and what we learn; it allows us to set priorities; it determines the majority of our daily actions. Research suggests it is responsible for as much as 80 percent of the "success" in our lives." -J. Freedman
