Running your business isn’t turning out how you expected.
Gone is the fun and excitement of getting started and working with as many clients as you can to hone your skills.
The dream bubble has burst, and the nightmarish reality is settling in.
You no longer spend your days working on the things you love. Quite the opposite, in fact. You have so much to do and learn to keep your business afloat. You feel like you need to be an expert at everything – from marketing to tech to money management.
To add insult to injury, your revenue has plateaued.
You know something needs to change, but you’re not sure what.
You didn’t start your business to get stuck into the boring stuff like admin and tech.
Your vision is quite simple:
make a difference
But with everything you have to do, you’re starting to think you need to clone yourself to make it happen.
Over the years, you’ve tried many things (except actual cloning 👩🏻💻👩🏻💻👩🏻💻)…
- You’ve enrolled in programs to help you become a better business owner and master your mindset.
- You’ve bought courses to help you organise your work and be more productive, hoping you’d finally be able to tick everything off your extensive to-do list.
- You’ve hired experts to set up your key platforms, such as Dubsado, so you’d finally have systems and wouldn’t be limited by tech.
- You’ve hired a VA or an OBM, but you never had enough work to give them, and you spent the whole time stressing about the money you were wasting.
You realise now that these were just band-aids after band-aids, and they didn’t fix anything.
Your business is still a mess, and you don’t know how to fix it.
If anything, these “solutions” have added to your workload
You feel even more…
You’re starting to wonder how you’ll ever be able to grow your business and actualise your vision when you feel that way.
You’re starting to doubt your abilities as a business owner:
do you really have what it takes?
Of course, you do!
You’ve been focusing on the wrong piece of the puzzle. You’ve been looking for THE solution – someone or something magical to fix you and/or your business. And every program, course, and coach has reinforced this belief that you weren’t doing it right and there was something wrong with you or your business.
Except there’s nothing to fix. Nothing at all.
But it has kept you playing small. You’ve given your power away to others to decide how to run your business. It’s prevented you from stepping up as the CEO of your business. It’s time to reclaim that role.
You don’t need more…
- self-loathing about your inability to be organised or get on top of your to-do list.
- fancy templates to make you look more professional.
- books, podcasts or resources from self-proclaimed experts to tell you what to do and how to run your business.
- mindset hacks and strategies to implement that seem to work for everybody except you.
- tools to systemise and automate your business that only make it more complex and overwhelming to run.
Deep down, you already knew systems were the missing piece of the business puzzle.
You’ve been putting off creating systems for a while now because you’ve bought into the following myths. It’s time to change your perception about systems.
In case we haven’t met…
I’m an Online Business Systems Strategist + Soulful Systems™ Mentor.
I work with purpose-led business owners who want to run their business with ease, fun and focus so they’re free to change the world.
I spent 13 years as a Process Improvement Specialist and IT Analyst, along with running my own coaching and healing business for 8 years before I had an eye-opening, in-person workshop as part of a soulful mastermind. It was then that I realised my superpower – during a session on all things processes and systems.
I asked myself, “what if I could support my sisters to delight their customers, create flow and space, and spend their time doing what lights them up…while I help them streamline and automate all the ‘tech’ that drains them?”
So…I did just that!
Now, I put my skills to use to support purpose-led business owners like you in creating businesses that flow seamlessly and expand sustainably.
I take a holistic approach to business and weave in my experience as a Certified Life Coach, Yoga Teacher, Reiki Practitioner and Crystal Healer to empower my clients to be intentionally productive and reach the next level with potent systems and processes.
“I’m entirely BLOWN AWAY by how much impact Emilie has had on my business.”
I feel like I’m finally providing my business with what it’s been so desperate for…a way of working that actually allows me to move FORWARD on what I say I want to do instead of feeling sad and frustrated about all the things on the ‘one day’ list.
As well as seeing my bigger business visions come to fruition, I’ve noticed that now I’m able to support my clients better than ever. Streamlined systems and processes that are bespoke to me and my style = a whole lot more flow and ease in my day.
My only regret about working with Emilie is that I didn’t decide sooner.

I’ll take you through the entire Soulful Systems™ framework over the course of the year:
Concretely, this is what you’ll learn:
“I feel much more organised”
When I reached out to Emilie, I was struggling to take intentional action in my business. I’d just finished a mastermind to support me heading in a new direction in my business but I still felt scattered about how to actually implement my new strategy.
Throughout the program, Emilie made me feel heard and supported me to find systems and processes that work for me. She acknowledged that we all have different ways of working and encouraged me to honour my uniqueness instead of trying to fit me around a particular system.
Now that I’ve completed the program, things in my business feel easier. I’ve mapped out my processes so I can support my audience and customers in a way that feel good to me. And I’ve implemented systems that are helping to free up my brain and make me more productive in my business (& life!).
I feel much more organised already and have a plan to make things even more streamlined in future.

“Emilie has immense capabilities to fastrack and put the building blocks in place very quickly”
When I found Emilie, I was looking for a heart-led woman to support me with the technical aspect of my business. I was transitioning from pro bono to a business model and wanted to create a paid mentoring program and a supportive community for Asian-Australian Women. Emilie very quickly connected with my vision and understood my approach to use tools created by more socially conscious companies.
Emilie guided me in shaping my thinking around the next stage of my business and created the system to support me in this transition. My backend systems work beautifully together and are scalable. Things I’d never thought of are in place, and I can now grow my business with the knowing that the systems and processes will enable this. The booking and video conference systems talk seamlessly, and it feels professional when women can just book in and everything is set up.

I have big plans for Soulful Systems™ School.
While the focus is on content to start with, I’ll also be adding:
- a community space so you connect with others on the same journey as you
- an accountability + check-in system so you can commit to implementing what you learn
- a member’s directory so you can network and collaborate with other purpose-led business owners
- guest interviews and masterclasses to go deeper
- members-only perks to help you be more sustainably visible (think bundles, promotion opportunities and podcast interviews)
- an affiliate program so you can earn some $$$ for sharing Soulful Systems School with your business friends
And all this will be at no extra cost to you if you join today.
Yes, the price will go up as I add more features and content to the membership. BUT as long as you stay enrolled, your price will stay the same.
“I was daunted and scared at first, but felt completely supported, understood – and actually inspired – at the end!”
Before booking my session with Emilie, I knew I needed to put some systems in place (esp. around onboarding, contracts and timelines) but I have ZERO interest or motivation to spend time on this. I was afraid of coming across as too ‘clinical’ – I’m hugely personable and don’t love the idea of automated messages.
The funny thing is, by the end of filling out the Systems Audit, I was excited at the idea of finally having systems (and even automation!).
The 90-min session was inspiring and grounding. The general wisdom shared about managing my workload, email marketing, breakdown of project management tools and how they can help keep all my business stuff in one central place was so enlightening.
Since the session, I’ve tweaked some of my apps and have started setting up an overall biz management hub. I also feel more organised – I know where key information is kept, and it’s opened my mind to ways to improve organisation.

I know what you’re thinking:
Can’t I just figure it out on my own?
Probably… but something tells me that you won’t.
Chances are you’re like most business owners; systemising your business is never a priority. You know you need to do it, but you can’t find the time (or motivation).
So it gets put on the back burner indefinitely. It’ll have to take a major disaster for you to really look into it.
On the odd chance that you find an hour or so here or there to work on your systems, you’ll spend it on the internet looking for answers. Because, of course, there’s a plethora of resources available. But guess what? They are generic. You’ll still need to figure out how to adapt them to your business.
This is exactly what you’ll learn how to do in Soulful Systems School – uncover how you function so that you can systemise your business in a way that works for you.
“My business now has automation from end to end”
Working with Emilie has ensured my business has a strong foundation. They say having a structure gives you freedom and Emilie has definitely guided me to build that in my business. My business now has automation from end to end and I have more time, energy and focus to build my business. If you have an online business and you want to feel connected, free and successful then you need to work with Emilie.

“Emilie is an absolute godsend.”
Emilie is an absolute godsend. In the lightning-speed, ever-evolving online world, it can be totally overwhelming and perplexing trying to navigate the latest algorithm or knowing which product to select for your booking system (and that’s just the beginning!) During our consultation, and without hesitation, Emilie provided me with a myriad of suggestions to assist with streamlining my online spaces, quick tips to make life easier, and find the most cost-effective options for what I need. She also went away and researched several different products for me to compare and evaluate alongside one another. What Emilie knows and can do (so quickly!) will save you a vast amount of time. Seriously. Free up time to focus on what you do well, and let Emilie help you with what she does so well. She is worth her weight in gold and comes highly recommended from me!

Questions you might have before joining Soulful Systems™ School
How is the content delivered to me?
Soulful Systems School is hosted in my Teachable school. All replays and resources will be available there.
The private podcast can be accessed in your favourite podcast application. You’ll get your own subscription link when you join.
All calls will be hosted on Zoom.
You’ll get a monthly email with the month’s topic and call dates and times.
What times are the calls?
The training sessions will be on the first and third Wednesdays of the month at 10 am AEDT (Tuesday, 3 pm PT). They’ll go for 30 minutes max.
Make It Happen sessions will be on the last Wednesday of the month at 10 am AEDT (Tuesday, 3 pm PT). They’ll go for 90 minutes.
Training sessions will be recorded and uploaded to the membership site within 24 hours. They’ll have closed captions and transcripts. They’ll also be available as a podcast feed.
Note this schedule will be slightly different in November 2023, December 2023 and January 2024. Calls will still be on Wednesdays but may be on different weeks due to the summer holidays here in Australia.
How much time do I need to commit each month to the membership?
You’ll want to set aside at least 1h each month to attend the training sessions or watch/listen to the replays.
Then depending on where you’re at with the month’s topic, you may want to dedicate more time to do the activities and design and implement your systems.
How much support is included?
You can submit your questions via Voxer (private message) at any time. I’ll reply during weekly Office Hours on Friday between 9 and 10 am AEST.
You can also ask questions during the training sessions and after (via the membership platform). I’ll reply within 2 business days.
However, note that this isn’t a group coaching program. I won’t know your business intimately. Therefore the advice provided may not be as specific as you’d like. To make sure it’s relevant to you though, I’ll often ask you lots of questions for you to ponder in your own time so you can make the best decisions for your business.
Will I need to sign up or set up many tools?
No! My philosophy is to keep things simple, and that includes leveraging your existing tools so you don’t have to learn yet another one.
I’m not tech-savvy. Will you help me?
Systems and tech are two different things. You may need some tech to support you, but tools always come last. First, we’ll focus on designing systems that work for you – that means understanding how you think and work.
Once you’ve chosen a tool, if you need help setting it up, you can ask your questions during the monthly support call.
I already have some systems. Will I find value?
I’m guessing that you’re looking at this page because you feel your systems could support you better or your business should be easier to run. If that’s the case, then yes, you’ll find value as you can use the content in the membership to audit your existing systems and tweak them as needed.
Will you tell me what tools to use?
No. I don’t believe in one size fits all. Instead, I’ll provide a comparison of the most common tools so you can decide for yourself what platforms are best for your business.
Can I cancel my membership anytime?
Yes, you can cancel anytime before your membership renewal date. Don’t worry, you’ll be notified a few days beforehand.
The end of your membership takes effect at the end of your billing period. There’s no refund for cancelling early.
Unless you had purchased the bonus courses before you joined Soulful Systems School, you will no longer have access to these once your membership is over. You’re welcome to purchase them at any time.
Cancelling is easy, but just in case, I’ve added the exact steps to follow in the membership platform.
You can rejoin at any time. Any special price you had before you cancelled (e.g. Quarter 1 special price) may no longer be available when you want to rejoin. You’ll need to sign up again based on the pricing available at the time.
What happens after I join?
You’ll get an email from me to confirm that you’re now a member. Yay! The email has all the information that you need, including your access to the membership platform and your private podcast link.
Still have questions?
“Emilie’s wisdom blew me away”
Emilie, the first word that I must share is just WOW! Emilie’s depth of knowledge; hands-on experience and very obvious passion and love for what she does shows through so clearly in her sessions.
Emilie’s wisdom blew me away, and within 2 minutes of me explaining the expanding needs of where I needed my social media to be and how I would go about organising it, she had the answers for me. And not just 1 answer, but a few, so that I could then see the options of what types of ways I could choose to workflow my content best, especially given my time restraints as an Entrepreneur and Mother.
Every detail is not missed either, the post-session emails contain all that was discussed and more – leaving you feeling completely supported and capable of being able to carry out what is needed.
Emilie is nothing short of a cosmic genius with tech and strategy and has made, what has always been a looming ‘issue’ for me with Social Media, just so amazingly simplified now and actually quite a deliciously enjoyable creative process for me too.
I have such deep gratitude to Emilie for her wisdom and can’t wait to continue working with her along the way as my business expands.
