I'm Sarah Vermunt, the gal behind Careergasm. I'm a career coach, former business professor, and the bestselling author of Careergasm and Career Rookie. I've been helping people build their own businesses for more than 10 years.
I've served up straight-talking career and business advice at places like Forbes, Inc., Entrepreneur, Fortune, and Fast Company. And each month, my advice is pumped into millions of homes across North America.
I help people get unstuck and move towards work that actually feels good. For many, that means ditching your 9-5 and working for yourself.
✔ Select your niche. We'll identify your ideal client and learn now to attract people you'll be thrilled to work with. (They'll be thrilled to work with you too!)
✔ Develop your brand. Biggest biz mistake you can make? A bland, vanilla, one-size-fits-all brand. We'll make sure your brand is uniquely you so it stands out.
✔ Web content strategy. I'll show you what you need to have on your website and why. Plus, we'll write and polish all of your web copy and I'll provide feedback.
✔ Craft your initial offering or program. Plus, I'll show you how to write a kickass sales page so the people you want to work with will be excited to work with you too.
✔ Personalized media marketing strategy. This is a hot ticket! I'll be sharing actual pitches that got me published at Forbes, Inc., Entrepreneur, etc. Plus, successful pitches for television, radio, and podcasts to help you get seen.
✔ 1-on-1 feedback on your niche, offering, web copy, and marketing plan. Again, this is a hot ticket! Most business development programs don't offer this kind of deep 1-on-1 support.
✔ Plus a BONUS 60-minute 1-on-1 deep dive session to use any time after the launch of your business — to help you tweak or build to the next level.
This kind of structure & accountability will take you from idea to DONE.
I’ll share actual pitches that got me published at places like Forbes, Inc., & Entrepreneur, plus successful pitches for TV, radio, and podcasts. I've been featured in the media 300+ times, and I want that kind of success for you too. Because nothing builds credibility and exposure for your business faster.
You'll get 3 Careeregasm courses, including my Entrepreneur course that hasn't even launched yet. This is HUGE value if you're considering creating courses or memberships in your own business — you'll have access to a model of content delivery that keeps clients engaged and happy.
Your business will keep growing and evolving after you launch, and that's a good thing! This program comes with a BONUS 1-on-1 deep-dive session that you can cash in anytime after the launch of your biz — to help you tweak things, create another offering, or build to the next level.
We'll meet over video chat each month. I'll ask you a lot of good questions, and it's your job to simply show up and be honest — about what matters to you, where you feel stuck, all of it.
You'll always feel prepared for our sessions because I'll send you exercises and worksheets before-hand. And at the end of each session, I'll assign you homework to help you keep building until we meet again.
Accountability is THE thing that many people say gets them unstuck. So yes, there will be homework inbetween our sessions — the fun kind!
You'll be doing introspective, fun, brain-tickling exercises to help you get clear on what you want for your biz, which means you'll be having aha-moments even when we're not face-to-face. Eventually, you'll also be writing client profiles, web copy, and media pitches for me to review.
We'll connect twice a month — once during our 1-on-1 coaching session, and again at a monthly group support call where you can check-in and ask questions. That combo, perfectly paced, is what gives people the structure and accountability they need to get moving without feeling overwhelmed.
A big part of building a solid foundation for your business is having enough time to do the required work, and enough time to let things integrate. This is a value-packed experience, and we'll pace things out so you maintain your momentum.
You absolutely can! If you've failed to start your business on your own, the structure and accountability that 1-on-1 business development coaching provides may be exactly what you need.
Plus, coaching with me is a pretty deep experience. I'll be asking you thought-provoking questions, helping you identify your blind spots, and even helping you navigate the emotional side of things. It'll take you way beyond what you've been able to do on your own.
About 2 hours a week. We'll have our 1-on-1 coaching session each month, plus, you'll be writing client profiles, web copy, and media pitches.
Eventually, you'll be taking action with specific bits of homework in the real world — testing your ideas, building your website, and working with your first few clients — all very good uses of your time as a new business owner!
Just reach out. I'm happy to answer any questions you have. You can get in touch with me directly here.
1. You'll receive an excited email from me welcoming you to this amazing process! And we'll set a time for our first coaching session.
2. Even before our first appointment, I'll send you some brain-tickling worksheets to get you thinking about things and prepare for our first chat.
You're gonna love this journey.
By the end of our work together, you’ll have a deeper understanding of your specific niche, a more clearly defined personal brand, a signature offering, all of the copy for your website, and a strategy for building credibility and exposure for your business.
BOOM. That's a recipe for success.
Create a plan so that you can build the business you’ve always wanted.
