Exhausted Business Woman (square)

An exhausting hamster wheel of sales, marketing, and operations


Working all the time and still not financially pulling ahead


The weight of endless questions and heavy decisions


Feeling pressure to put work first and family last

You deserve a business that’s a partner and not a pirate.

Before meeting Whitney, my business was riding the struggle bus.

Through applying what I learned in the Academy, I had a 40% growth in my profit over the last 12 months.

I now have a life I am proud of, not just a business that I love.

I have such a clear path forward that I didn’t have before.

My initial offer can now lead into a recurring revenue scenario, and I’m really excited about that.

We were bordering on “do we close shop?” territory and needed help.

Whitney’s process detangled our post-pandemic, survival mode, trauma bonded mess.

Now, we’re thriving.

I used to feel trapped by the business I built.  Not anymore.

Maybe you are like me, and think that because you are good at providing a service, you’ll be great at running a service-based business.  Well, I wasn’t…. at first.

Paying tuition to The School of Hard Knocks is a time-consuming, costly way to learn, isn’t it? And we’re told that if something isn’t working, we need to throw ourselves into it even more. “Try harder” steals more time away from the people and activities we love.

It wasn’t until I learned how to systematically optimize my business for time and revenue that everything changed. And that’s why I want to help you.

You can avoid task burnout, distracted dinners, and vacations spent on your computer! 

Join the No-Busyness Academy. My team and this community will make sure you build a business that serves you – rewarding, flexible, and fulfilling.

Who is the Academy for?

This program is specifically designed for:

  1. Small businesses of 1-10 people. Solopreneurs and extra small teams have no time to waste on tools not built for them, or programs that assume you have an army of employees to help you implement. So we’ve built this with tons of materials and support, and zero time-wasting fluff.
  2. Who primarily deliver services or solutions instead of retailing or selling “widgets.”  The sales cycle is much different than in retail stores, the projects require contracts, and the workflow challenges can be significant. Our experience has focused on service-based businesses and it’s what we know cold.
  3. And have been in business for 3 years or more. To survive this long you must have determination and skill. However, over 60% of small businesses fail by year 5. That means you’ll either get it right in the next two years or you’ll have to get out. The time is NOW!

Also, the community experience invites you to share ideas, tips, empathy, and loyal opposition, so we look for strong women and enlightened men.

What is your typical return on investment?

Your program investment of $1497/month makes the most sense if your business revenue is $175K or more each year. 

Most members generate enough extra profit to pay for the entire experience in the first three months.

With continued implementation, they average over 30% increase in profit in the first year. #mathISsexy


What's the schedule?

The Academy program combines live coaching sessions with on-demand learning.

  1. LIVE GROUP COACHING begins May 22, 2024. It continues on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month from 11 a.m. to 12 noon Eastern Time US. Video replays are posted the next day and are available to watch for the duration of your Academy.

  2. ON-DEMAND PROMPTS provide new materials you can review in about 30-minutes a day. On your own schedule, dive into our hand-curated materials (a mix of articles, podcasts, videos, and worksheets). Then, try your hand at a dirty first draft to bring to our discussions.
  3. ASK-ME-ANYTHING SESSIONS are offered at least once a month and are in addition to the Coaching sessions. (Times vary in response to materials and US holidays.) They are a great place to get clarification, feedback, and advice on something you are working on.


Can a member of my team attend, too?

We want you to be successful, so when Optimizations involve another member of your team, they are welcome to attend that call with you.

Unless you are a VIP Experience member, you are limited to one person on a call, and only from your immediate team.

Is there a replay available afterwards?

Of course! All live coaching sessions are recorded. Members get a replay link within 24 hours of the session, along with a summary of suggested action items or resources discussed on the call.

The videos remain available for viewing by Members for 60 days following the end of the Academy.

What if I still have questions?

We welcome questions! We want to make sure that this is the right program for you, and invite you to schedule a no-pressure call to talk about it. Or, send an email to grow at provokebetter dot com. 



Just 6 months after coaching started, I hit The Big Number – the amount of money I really wanted to make but didn’t believe I could.

I’m not struggling anymore.

We got clarity and a new perspective on things.

It forced us to get sh*t done that we previously kept putting off.

Now, we’re having our best year EVER!
