Doula Your Dreams
GROWING YOUR BIZ, IN GREAT COMPANY
Doula Your Dreams is a 12-month business mentorship that sees your unique gifts and honours your humanity.
This is a place where you can work towards a big and bold vision, while feeling held by me and a community of other women in business.
This is a program for the whole-you.
The woman. The mother. The creative. The business owner.
It is about stretching outside your comfort zone and overcoming fears, releasing new offerings, increasing your prices, starting a new project – but it is not about scaling your biz at all costs. Your mental, physical and emotional health impacts your business and I want sustainability to be at the forefront of your growth.
Doula Your Dreams includes group coaching calls, a space to ask ongoing questions and get feedback on your work, plus me calling you out on your deeply ingrained stories and encouraging you to try new scary shit.
I can’t wait to send you champagne emojis and excited messages when you’ve done the damn thing.
When you look around and exclaim, HOLY HELL, I DID IT!
WHERE DO YOU WANT TO TAKE YOUR BUSINESS in 2024? DOULA YOUR DREAMS CAN HELp you get there!

Something else and not sure? Please ask!
Do I need to be a mother?
While this mentorship is not specifically for mothers, please note that my work is mother-centred and mostly attracts mothers. As a result, conversations in relation to business, often include the context of being a mother. This includes the impact of sleep (or lack thereof), the time and energy pressures, childcare, the mother / maker juggle and the social influence and constructs of motherhood. Babies and children are welcome in the background of our calls (although mine are with their dad).
Do I need to work online?
It is preferred that at least a part of your business is based online or you want to transition to this space. While I have in-person aspects to my own business and love them, I am passionate about supporting women to diversify income streams with online offerings.
Perhaps one of your goals for the year, is to create an epic online course. This mentorship will be fabulous to keep you on track and ready to launch!
Why is it a 12 month commitment?
If you want to see the true benefits of business mentorship, it’s based on the long-game.
The longer time frame of this program allows the development of trust, deeper relationships between the women in the group and it also acknowledges the realistic journey of being a small business owner. I am not promising that you will scale to six figures in 6 seconds. 12 months gives you TIME to work towards your goals.
Who is this NOT for?
This is not for absolutely brand new businesses. This group is for those that have a few years experience under their belt and want to take it to the next level.
DYD is also not for businesses that are bricks and mortar, or product based ONLY (sorry, not my zone of genius!)
This mentorship is also not for those that need hand holding in every aspect. A level of self responsibility and determination is required in a group mentorship program. Of course I will be there to support you, but I cannot run your biz for you.
We begin in January 2024 with your first 1:1 60 minute call where you can share your business dreams and plant the beautiful seeds of the year ahead.
You will get 3 more of these sessions across the 12-months, where we can work 1:1 together on specific offerings or launches.
As a group, we start on Wednesday 21st February, meeting for 90-120 minutes from 10am Sydney time.
We will gather in virtual circle as a group 16 times throughout the year, with 12 calls facilitated by Rachael, and 4 calls with guest presenters (to be advised, based on the needs of the group).
There are integration breaks scheduled over the NSW school holidays.
You can ask questions of Rachael and the collective in our private Facebook group on a weekly basis.
Every month there is an opportunity to submit website / content or sales page copy for feedback.

This holistic style of mentorship has sent ripple effects out into my life that I will be forever grateful for.
Rachael leads and hold space in such a natural way. Her humour, creative mind and ability to see the big vision oh-so-clearly makes her an asset on any small business owner's team.

WHAT DO OTHER WOMEN SAY?
WHY GROUP MENTORSHIP?
As an experienced women’s circle facilitator, my skill set lies in deep listening and reflection, being with women during times of huge transformation and allowing women to find clarity for themselves.
My life’s purpose is bringing people together, and facilitating groups who can connect, collaborate and learn from each other.
Being an entrepreneur is a big deal and my mentorship aims to provide the practical and emotional support of a business doula, loads of personal insights that will save you time and money from making the same mistakes I did, and the ability to grow alongside others on a similar path..
You don’t have to do this entrepreneur journey alone.
doula your dreams will keep you accountable and inspired to keep going, even when it’s FUCKING hard. dedicate 2024 to your business and see what magic unfolds.
HOW DO I MENTOR?
I’ll remind you that you are strong and capable, especially when your brain is telling you otherwise, like after tricky client interactions, or the rite of passage that is your first refund request.
I’ll help you review your business, systems and structures, with longevity in mind.
AKA don’t hustle and grind until you burn out.
I want you to make HEAPS of money doing work that you LOVE. But this mentorship is not following any kind of formula or cut, copy and paste kind of mentality.
In saying that, if you have a course you want to launch and you have a big bodacious money goal, then doing this within a mentorship is an amazing idea.
I see potential in every woman I have ever worked with. I can often visualize where their business is heading in the future, and I mentor from that place of excitement and possibility.
Being a solo entrepreneur can get lonely. Creating and birthing ideas and then asking other humans to actually back and buy them, can be a total mind fuck.
Overcoming imposter syndrome, self doubt and comparison – a lot of people get stuck in transition and it can be very overwhelming without someone whispering into your ear that you’ve got this.
Just like in birth, sometimes we need to walk through fire to return with our babies, and I am not promising that my presence in your life, will make the labour effortless.
Going through challenges in the company of other women, simply feels better.
That’s why I have structured this mentorship as an intimate group of women in business who are growing their businesses too.
You realise you are not alone. In your thinking. In your fears. In your tears. In your triumphs.
We can all learn and grow alongside each other. I am going to be doing this work with you too!
Gain the inside pass to 12 other women’s businesses, the collective wisdom, shared resources, the mistakes and monumental milestones. This kind of insight is invaluable.
What DO women say about business mentorship
Doula Your Dreams has been the best thing I've done for not only my business but for my soul.
Sitting with these other women all doing different things but also having so many similarities is so needed in sole trading work.
– Nicole-Ann, Doula Your Dreams
Having Rachael's wisdom and sage advice at my fingertips has been invaluable
Working as a solopreneur can be lonely and filled with self doubt, and I'm so grateful that I've had Rach in my corner for her help and moral support, plus a side of calling out my bullshit Literally would not/could not have launched Cook and Cocoon without Rachael cheering me on and supporting me practically. It has been months of talking with her about this, and her doula-ing me through. Reminding me: I can do hard things! I can't recommend her support highly enough.
– Naomi Chrisoulakis, 1:1 Mentoring
Will Forever Recommend This Offering To My Mama Friends In Business.
Rachael is a wealth of knowledge and experience, but also empathy, kindness and humbleness. I felt so seen and supported.
– Jaime Hawkins, Mothers In Business Circle
Rachael Is The Business Doula Every Woman Needs.
She facilitates beautiful and enriching spaces and is so honest, funny and engaging.
– Lou Hardwick, Mothers In Business Circle
I wanted to better my understanding of what heart led, mother centred business could look like. And to have the support of a group of other women going through similar things in their businesses. The accountability was important for me, to keep me accountable for the studying I was doing, for diversifying my offerings, which was a big goal for me. My confidence has sky rocketed this year and it continues to grow.
– Katie O'Neill, Doula Your Dreams
