Sara Phelan

Hi, I'm Sara

As a Senior Growth Strategist, Certified Business/ Executive Coach, and former Business Broker, I help small business owners to overcome obstacles and get strategic about what they need to do next.

I get it, planning is not a sexy or fun topic.

I was an entrepreneur first, and honestly some of this was a good to know, but didn't seem to affect my daily life- until it did.

There are so many things I learned on exit that I wish I knew earlier.I didn't know what to ask, or who I could trust. Yes, many lessons learned and scars to prove it.

That said, having worked with thousands of entrepreneurs over the years, I can absolutely say this is a conversation every entrepreneur has at some point.

I'm sharing my proven framework to help you get organized, manage risk and dream big.

With clarity and a plan you will be able to see and measure your results.
