Work Less & Make More With The Life-Changing Magic of VIP Days!
You’ve been struggling with your business for a while now. In fact, these might hit a little close to home…
- You spend tons of hours on non-billable work. You dread posting on social media, answering complex emails, writing proposals, and getting on “connection” calls that don’t always turn into clients…
- Clients expect you to live by their deadlines, but they can’t meet yours. Late files means you can’t start on time. They give feedback when they get around to it. Projects just keep getting delayed…
- You overextend yourself. After taking on more clients to fill the gaps the delayed clients have created – suddenly the delayed client is ready, and you have no choice but to work double-time to keep everyone happy.
- Scope Creep is out of control. Revision after revision, email after email, week after week. Your projects are never-ending…
- Your bank account suffers. When you finally DO finish a project, it takes weeks or months longer to actually get paid…
Maybe you’ve even found yourself daydreaming about going back to a real J.O.B. because then at least you could clock out at 5:00 every day and get paid consistently.
And deep down, you know that if you don’t get this figured out, you’ll have to face the reality that maybe you’re not cut out for having the freedom you’ve always dreamed your business would give you.
Enough already! What if it didn’t have to be so hard? What if it could be simple?
What would change for you if …
You only had to work 2 or 3 days per week and you knew exactly what days they would be, so you could plan months in advance, spend more time with your family, travel frequently and do more of what you love.
You didn’t have to waste hours on discovery calls, writing proposals and calculating how long an entire project will take only to be let down when the client comes back and says you’re too expensive.
You knew exactly how much money you were going to make each month and you could control whether or not to make more or less, depending on your life’s circumstances for the month.
You no longer had to deal with frustrating, demanding or clueless clients who started out fine, but then turned into the never-ending scope-creep client, leaving you both uninspired by the end of your time together.
You had a steady stream of DREAM clients raving about the work that you’ve done for them – so much so, that you no longer need to spend hours inside of Facebook Groups promoting your services.
You no longer worry about whether or not you were going to be able to pay the bills next month because you’re charging premium rates for your services and no longer chasing down late payments and invoices.
My guess is that this would be life-changing for you!
The truth is, it is totally possible for you to have a simple and streamlined business that is easy to run, doesn’t require endless working hours, lights you up, and attracts dreamy clients who LOVE paying you for your expertise!
And the best part is… It can happen for you sooner than you think!
All you need is a proven plan, with ready-to-use tools and resources to help you each step of the way.
If you’re ready to STOP….
Spending hours writing custom proposals, only to be told you’re too expensive…
Constantly doom-scrolling social media, worrying about where your next client is going to come from…
Bringing your laptop everywhere you go, just in case a client emergency comes up…
Spending your weekends working on client deadlines…
Cluttering up your desktop with all of those “final_final_final_clientname.jpg” files…
Then you are ready for VIP Days!
A decade of running a traditional branding and web design business, filled with scope creep, inconsistent timelines, overlapping client projects, delayed payments and countless unpaid hours, eventually resulted in classic burnout– becoming the catalyst that sparked my desire to create a better process.
Clarity came to me one day in early 2018, when I received an inquiry from a previous client, asking for a handful of very specific website updates.
Rather than spending several hours assessing each individual request and writing an itemized proposal, on a whim I pitched her a day rate.
That was the day my journey to freedom began.
Long story short, I quickly began hitting consistent $10K months working just a handful of VIP days per month, and never looked back.
My mission is to help other burnt out service providers experience this exact same life-changing magic!
You could start out like I did many years ago, and piece it all together…
Test out pricing, test out offers, test out timing, test out schedules, test out systems and tools…
Keep what works. Throw away what doesn’t.
But how much is it going to cost you in LOST TIME staying stuck in the feast or famine while you “figure this out”???
Now, don’t get me wrong. VIP Days are NOT rocket science – but efficiency & logistics ARE most definitely a science.
Imagine being taught what, when and why to do #allthethings so that nothing falls through the cracks, and you’re not left scrambling to pick up the pieces of a disaster VIP Day.
Imagine having a coach who’s BEEN in your shoes, and is now where you want to be, cheering you on, helping you make the right decisions and offering guidance when things get confusing.
Imagine the financial freedom you could have this year if you take action with the right tools and the right community of support around you.
Let me help you close the gap between where you are and where you want to be.
Meet Jennifer W.
“Before joining the course, I was feeling like I wasn’t making the most of my business because I was overworking and undercharging. After I saw Sarah’s free webinar, it was a no-brainer for me to sign up. Day Rates are making it possible for me to create a more streamlined business where I’m more focused on doing the work I enjoy the most.“
Meet Helen H.
“My favorite part of the course is the email and copy swipe files! It really helped me to move forward faster without overanalyzing everything. I also love the community. There are so many great questions that get asked all the time, which is very helpful. For anyone looking to try Day Rates, you need to hop on board and just do it! After selling one day rate, you will get your money back. Plus, Sarah has laid out where you can hop around in the course – which is a great benefit to just take action!”
Meet Sally S.
Since joining the course, I am much more confident in my work and communication, and feel my boundaries now fully benefit my clients, leaving myself feeling 100% guilt-free!! My favorite part of the course is the tech walkthroughs – I loved the behind-the-scenes of how to set up the workflows of onboarding, day-of, and offboarding. For anyone considering joining the course, JUST DO IT!! It is truly life-changing when you rewire the way you think about what quality work looks like.
This is where most people are when they come to me.
Each colored line represents a different client project.
You’ve worked nearly every day of the month, and four out of the six projects are still ongoing, and still unpaid. 😩
It’s the tale of the classic feast or famine cycle that I am sure you can relate to…
😃 Book a client for a 4-6 week project and collect a deposit
😩 Client isn’t prepared to start on time, so project is put on hold
😃 Book another client to fill the time and payment gap that first client caused
😕 Client A is ready, and now you’re working on two clients at once
😩 Client B changes their mind and decides to revamp the whole project
😩 Client A can’t make up her mind and takes forever to get back to you
😃 Find a few more clients because timelines are becoming so delayed that you need a cash injection
😕 Now you’re working with several clients who are all at different phases, needing all different things, and you’re working every day
😩 Resentment sets in for all parties because you are spreading yourself thin, no one is getting the dedicated attention they deserve, and you’re feeling burnt out
😩 You wind up finishing all except that one dragging client who keeps asking for changes, and you have no income because you didn’t have time to do any new marketing during all that client work and your pipeline dried up
But when you work with us to get VIP Days dialed in, this is what your month looks like.
Four clients completed in 6 ½ days and paid in full! 😃
Making six-figures with VIP Days does not happen overnight. It’s going to feel uncomfortable, and you WILL mess up.
You will have to take risks. You will have to say no to clients. You will have to believe in your own value.
You will have to retrain your brain to think differently.
But it will be so worth it. Because once you crack the code…
Depending on what you charge for a day…
This is what your annual revenue can quickly add up to!
Meet Rita S.
Rita struggled with the feast or famine cycle in her business – for years! Rita switched to the Day Rate model, and here’s what she had to say about it.
“I was drowning in projects. I felt like I couldn’t do anything but work. When I started doing intensives, I had my best month ever out of my 6 years in business, in September, and it was all due to me doing the dedicated days.”
Meet Ben S.
“Before Sarah’s course, I was overwhelmed, overworked and burnt out. Joining was really a no brainer for me – It just made total sense. It was easy to implement and started making a difference for me right away. So far, my biggest win has been hitting a new milestone – $50,000+! I no longer have to work like a dog to justify those fat monthly retainers. No scope creep ever again! This course will change your life. I’m so thankful for how it has helped transform my consulting practice and I look forward to all the good things ahead!”
Meet Meg M.
“Sarah’s course is gold! Before joining Sarah’s course, my business was good but I was very overworked and tired of clients dragging projects out, not paying promptly, etc. This course model is one of the few that really rewards you for being experienced and fast. It is something that I can incorporate into my existing business without having to learn a new platform or reinventing the wheel. My favorite part, so far, is the swipe files and being able to listen to the lessons on audio while driving.”

Work just a handful of days per month, and make more money that you ever thought possible!

Re-discover the long lost JOY in business that you’ve been missing for so long!
Launch & Refine Your Offer
Follow my step-by-step process to figuring out exactly what your offer will be! Break it all down using my Day Rate Calculator to find your perfect price, and then crunch those numbers even more to determine how you’re going to scale to reach your income goals.
Learn the exact method I used (and swipe my copy) for pitching and landing my first 3 intensive clients.
Validate that it’s irresistible, then it’s time to analyze the test client data, create your framework, and refine until it’s perfect and scalable!
Here are some of the lessons in module 1:
- Create, price and launch your imperfect offer
- Test your offer
- Create your framework
- Simplify your solution
- Stack the value
- Strategically raising your rates
Setup Your Systems & SOP’s
Efficiency, SOP’s and automations are the name of the game in the VIP Day model. I’m all about working smarter, not harder.
In this module, I break down every single tool that I use, how I use it, and how they are all connected to create a seamless workflow for automating the on-boarding process, scheduling clients, accepting payments, getting agreements signed, collecting feedback, and more!
Here are some of the lessons in module 2:
- Sarah’s Tech Stack
- 90-Day Client Journey
- Top Recommended Tools
- Work With Me Page Best Practices
- Calendar, Contract and Payments Setup
- Email Automations and Reminders Setup
Design the Client Experience
The number one most important factor that will determine the success of your Day Rate offer is how the client perceives the experience! If the client feels stressed, frazzled or overwhelmed, you need to have a plan in place to alleviate those feelings ASAP.
In this module, I go over every single thing to SAY and DO, beginning with the on-boarding email sequence, reminder emails, the kick-off call, the day-of the intensive, and the follow-up–so that your client never forgets how amazing you are!
Here are some of the lessons in module 3:
- On-boarding your client SOP
- Client Pre-Work SOP
- Kick-off Call SOP
- Day-of Intensive SOP
- Post-Intensive SOP
Sales & Marketing
As you probably have discovered by now, you can be among the best in your industry, but if you don’t know how to sell your service, then you don’t have a business.
In this module, I share every tip and trick that I’ve used (along with TONS of swipe copy) to continuously book out my schedule with Day Rates so that I’m increasing my revenue month over month, and still not feeling stressed or overwhelmed one bit.
Here are some of the things we’ll cover in module 4:
- Using social proof and case studies
- Social media marketing
- Alliances and collaborations
- Referral marketing
- Raving fans who can’t get enough of you
Ahh, good old BOUNDARIES. Something we all struggle with. Not all clients are created equal and therefore you’ll undoubtedly get a few who will book you for a day, then disappear on you forever, not show up to calls or provide timely feedback, or are just plain difficult to please.
In this module, I’ll explain exactly how to prepare for and handle all of those “what do you do when” red flags and sticky situations.
Here are some of the things we’ll cover in module 5:
- Unprepared clients
- Unresponsive clients
- Unhappy clients
- Clients who don’t pay on time
Scaling & Becoming Known
One of the biggest issues I see with creatives who switch to this model is shifting their mindset. So we cover some very common mindset barriers in this module, and I’ll share what I had to do, and who I had to become in order for this to work so well for my business.
Learning how to say “no” to red-flag and bad-fit clients and overcoming imposter syndrome were two big steps, so in this module I’ll share how that all went down for me so that you can start applying it for yourself!
Here are some of the lessons from module 6:
- Personal Growth and Mindset
- Overcoming Imposter Syndrome
- Saying No
- Continuous Improvement

Meet Megan B.
“This course got me into action immediately – so fast that I sold two Day Rates within two weeks of joining the course (which means I made back my investment and then some!). I feel so much lighter since transitioning to a Day Rate model (and my clients love it, too!) Sarah literally gives everything you need to get it done.“
Meet Tracy O.
Before Tracy joined our course, she felt as if she had reached an income ceiling and that her multiple projects would never end – which was taking a psychological toll on her.
This was a total GAME-CHANGER for her!
Tracy says her biggest win is seeing how much her clients thoroughly enjoy this model AFTER her feeling of uncertainty of whether the clients would even accept it! She says her clients’ minds are blown with how much can be accomplished!
Meet Crystal B.
“My favorite part about the course is all the real life solutions to MY problems as a web designer…. instead of taking tons of courses and piecing it all together to fit my business, this is a business model formula that you can literally take, make it your own, and run with it… AND MAKE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS PER MONTH INSTANTLY.”
Meet Jennifer W.
“This course has helped me make more in one month doing way less than all the sleepless nights of work over the 14 years I’ve been in business. I LOVE the concept of working on one day vs spreading a project out over weeks. It aligns with the way I work best and my clients have been very pleased with the business model.”
Meet Haylee L.
“I loved how simple and doable you made setting up everything seem, weaving in the mindset shifts to help me book clients while I was still in the course and making it seem like it wasn’t such a big leap but totally doable, and getting to chat with others during the group calls. I’m making more money and working less… what could be better? I can’t imagine going back to regular projects.”
If you’ve made it this far, you’re probably still questioning if this program is right for you…
This is for you if….
- You believe in the value of an efficiency model and working smarter, not harder.
- You are a confident freelancer or business owner!
- You thrive on working quickly & under pressure!
- You love the accomplished feeling of checking off a list and being super productive!
- You are sick of the feast or famine cycle because you KNOW you deserve more!
- You enjoy a semi-collaborative working environment and appreciate immediate feedback!
- You are sick of the “old” model of custom proposals and long projects!
- You are persistent, determined and resourceful!
- You want a mentor who has been exactly where you are, who you can trust!
On the other hand, you should probably pass if…
- You don’t care about or value your freedom, and making at least what your services are worth
- You prefer to take the long DIY route to solving your biggest problems, no matter how much pain they’re causing you
- You are not willing to put in the time and effort necessary to complete and implement the lessons, or you prefer having someone else do it for you
- You want instant results – this is not a get rich quick magic pill – it does take dedication and effort!
- You’re one of those people who joins programs, but then never actually does the work, asks the questions when you’re stuck, or shows up for the calls.
Frequently Asked Questions
I am brand new to business and don’t have clients yet – is this right for me?
While it is not a sales or business 101 course, there are a ton of excellent business and marketing lessons included! This course focuses mostly on efficiency, systems and creating an epic experience for the VIP Day business model. So even if you are new to business, if you feel like you want to start out with this model of working right away, or you’re simply interested in learning a better, more efficient style of working, then you will definitely learn a lot from this course!
Is this a design course?
No, this is not a design course. This is a program about systems, client experience, efficiency and processes. Through this program, I’ll be teaching you HOW I set up my VIP Day system, using a variety of software programs, workflows and strategy.
Is this only for designers?
While many of our students are in-fact designers, the lessons taught in this course can be applied to ANY done-for-you expert or service-based consulting business, as long as it’s a service that can be compressed into a one-day project.
What is your refund policy?
We offer a 14-Day Satisfaction Guarantee. Please do not enroll in if you just want to “check it out.” We put an extraordinary amount of time and effort into it and expect that you, as a serious student, plan to do the same.
Will I get 1:1 time with Sarah?
There are no 1:1 sessions with Sarah (unless you join Focused + Free) but you will have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you need in the VIP Collective community and on the Q&A calls! Sarah is always in the community answering questions, so you will always feel like you are getting personalized support.
Will this really help me book VIP Day clients?
If you’re prepared to apply everything you learn inside of this course, do the work and stay focused then there is no reason why you can’t be successful with your own one day intensive offer.
How much time do I need to dedicate to this?
The lessons are all very quick and actionable. Many lessons can be consumed via reading or audio, so you don’t need to be in front of a computer for the entire course. Everyone goes at a different pace, but we have put together a 14-day roadmap to guide you through the core content and get your offer created and setup. Plan to spend at least 1-2 full days getting your systems in place and implementing everything you’ve learned. The content is yours to keep, so you can come back to it at a later time if the timing is better.
Do I need any software or tools to get started?
You will not need anything for the course other than your computer and an internet connection. However, to implement what you’re going to learn, you should plan to spend anywhere from $50-100 on software, in order to have a variety of on-boarding and automation tools, to make your VIP Day offer as effective and efficient as possible. The great news is that with the system we teach you, you may be able to eliminate the role of a team member (if you currently have one).
