Who I am and why I created this program

Hi, my name is Yarrow and I am a web designer, business mentor and tech fairy for soft folks who want to make a difference in the world. 

I already wanted to work for myself as a teenager, but it took me another decade of shitty office jobs, underpaid childcare work and late nights to finally take the leap and let go of employment. I can honestly say that I have never looked back. 

In the last four years I have supported hundreds of small business owners through courses, live workshops and heartfelt 1:1 support in building successful online platforms. I’m still pinching myself when I really take in that I get to hang with my little dog Orlando and make business magic from the comfort of my home. 

I love taking folks behind the scenes to show them exactly what I am doing to grow my business and let things run smoothly and it’s important to me to also talk about self-care and authentic goals. 

The DIY Business Collective is exactly what I would have needed when I started out – comprehensive step by step training, a community of like minded small business owners, gentle accountability through monthly group coaching and live workshops as well as a good mix of mindset work, software systems and how to guides at a fair price. 

What others are saying

I really appreciate how down-to-earth, real and simple your approach is, it feels like a breath of fresh air -actually, like a deep, deep exhale, taking so much of the pressure of this ‘online thing’ off..I have been through most of the DIY Business Magic course, and it’s felt so nourishing and supportive, which is very different to past experiences I’ve had with business courses. I wish yours was the first course I’d taken, it would have saved me a lot of obsessing over doing things a certain way…!

This is a program that has empowered me to learn all the processes so that I can replicate them for myself anytime I need. Yarrow does not hold anything back and gives very practical steps for every aspect of your business. She has a well of knowledge and experience and is able to express it with easy to learn content that everyone can benefit from. I have full confidence that my business is set on a solid foundation with the support of Yarrow and her wisdom.

I am SO relieved and delighted to have stumbled into the DIY Business School. 

After a short harrowing experience in very loud brash super expensive online business coaching program, 
I left feeling overwhelmed and lost. 

Yarrow’s authentic soft practicality and  trauma informed approach offers a cozy space to land for new entrepreneurs, artists and healing arts practitioners and those still in the envisioning phase of stepping into the terrifying territory of creating an online business. 

I love that we have our own cozy space on the Mighty Networks Platform away from the overwhelm of traditional public social media spaces like FB and Instagram. 

We are all in different phases of creating an online business some advanced others like me still in the envisioning and yet i have never felt intimidated or overwhelmed i always feel welcome and am able learn through osmosis from the experience of other members in the DIY Community. 

Yarrow has a genuine concern for her community and has a magical way of meeting each budding entrepreneur in whichever stage or phase of business development they are in.

FAQs

How much time will I need to set aside to participate?

It’s totally up to you! If you have plenty of time you can really dive deep and make huge progress through the program but you can also just go at your own pace if you have other commitments. We’ll meet for an hour each month for our group coaching calls and then an hour for our live deep-dive workshops. You can always watch the replays and join the discussions over at Mighty Networks.

Do I need an established business to join this course?

No! I’ve helped many people get clear on what they are actually passionate about and what they want to offer, so if you are just getting started at the drawing board you are super welcome here! Similarly if you have already been in business for a while you will still be able to learn a ton and hear some new perspectives. 

Will I receive 1:1 support?

The group coaching calls and live workshops are your chance to ask me anything, but depending on group size I can’t guarantee that every single question will be covered – there is always interesting stuff to learn though and you can also ask for feedback from the community over on Mighty Networks. If you feel you need in-depth 1:1 support in order to move forward with your business you’ll be offered 10% off my 1:1 mentoring program. 

What if I am terrible with tech?

That’s okay! In the tech related trainings I am sharing my screen with you and am showing you step by step how to set up systems that work for you and your business. You can always pause, take notes and dive deeper when you’re ready. 

What does lifetime access mean?

This means you’ll get access for the lifetime of the program – for many, many years to come.
