rise method


a mastermind for introverted coaches who are ready to grow their income + impact

I know what it’s like to have a big message to share but to feel paralyzed when it comes to saying it out loud.

To have it come out like a shy peep instead of like the loud roar you feel inside.

But if you felt called to become a coach, it's because you have important work in this world to do. I mean, you didn't go through all of that for nothing! So it’s time to stop hiding and it's time to step into the shoes of the leader you know you’re meant to be.


I've gone from selling $47 detoxes (to anyone who would work with me) to sustaining a fully-booked 6-figure coaching business for over 3 years now, while travelling the world.

My clients are nutritionists, health coaches, life coaches and healers across the globe. I’ve also helped leadership coaches, real estate coaches, brand strategists (and even a stylist!) build their businesses, too.

From getting on video for the first time, launching their signature programs, signing their very first paying clients to creating $5K, $10K and even $20K+ months -- nothing makes me happier than to support someone to RISE UP and step into their power as a coach.

Hey there!



It's time to rise!

Tell Me More


RISE stands for relatable message, inspired action, sustainable business model and effective coaching.

Not only are we going to master your marketing to position you as the expert that you already are, we’re going to dive deep into your mindset to make sure you’re not self sabotaging along the way. 

We’re also likely going to need to rework your schedule so that you have that much-needed white space for introverting, recharging your batteries and nurturing your creativity… so that you can call in your dream clients instead of chasing them or messing around with a complicated sales funnel.

And as a Master Practitioner of NLP & Hypnotherapy, I’m going to help you rewire those limiting beliefs once and for all. (No more journaling about them for 6 months or 5 years!) You’ll learn my favourite NLP tools like SWISH, parts integration, mapping across and chaining anchors that you can use with your own clients to help them achieve lasting results, too -- without draining your own energy in the process.

a 6-month mastermind for introverted coaches ready to (finally!) get visible and create consistent clients and income.

What we'll cover:

• Design (or refine) your signature coaching program so that it speaks specifically to the ideal client it was designed for

• Find your blue ocean messaging that positions you as an expert on social media -- written and yes, VIDEO!

• Develop your signature talk that you can use for live workshops, guest expert interviews or webinars

I'm all in!

• Create white space in your life and business so you can recharge your energy and nurture your creativity

• Develop a powerful mindset practice to stay in the vortex of possibility and call in your dream clients with ease

• Strengthen your intuition and communicate with your unconscious mind using my NLP & self-hypnosis tricks

• Map out your game plan for $5K+ months and lay the foundations to scale to 6-figures (when you’re ready)

• Develop a streamlined webinar funnel to have on autopilot for consistent leads without back to back live launches

• Master the sales process and the secret to keep your clients coming back for more (and referring their friends!)

• Improve the efficiency of your sessions with a pre & post-session process that sets you and your client up for success

• Learn NLP tools (such as SWISH and submodality belief change) to break through unwanted behaviours and patterns
• Master the coaching questions that help empower your clients to be the facilitator of their own transformation

While the reality is that in 2019 you’re going to have to become a hell of a lot more visible so that your ideal clients can find you, the truth is you don’t have to change who you are to do so.


the business + life of your dreams

You didn't go through all of that for nothing! It's time to put your own journey to use and inspire someone a few steps behind you.

You deserve to have

Plus, we'll celebrate in person with an optional weekend retreat in venice beach May 24-27!

What's included:


This 6 month mastermind includes a hybrid of both private and group coaching support. 


You'll learn everything you need to know (and nothing you don't!) to initially create $5K months and also set you up for a 6-figure coaching business when you’re ready. We're talking Self Mastery, Marketing Mastery & Coaching Mastery. All of the 'teaching' pieces will be provided via video training to ensure that our group coaching sessions are purely for coaching and focused on moving your forward.


While I will bring a topic to the table at the start of the call related to that week's module, these calls are open coaching. Meaning, I will be there to support you with whatever you need support with that week -- whether that be your messaging, mindset, manifesting, visibility, strategy, sales, team etc.



Receive live guest expert trainings on the topics of on camera confidence, up-levelling your brand, booking speaking gigs and features, and automating your business with evergreen funnels. (You'll also receive access to my vault of 10+ previous guest expert trainings.)


Stay connected with me and your mastermind sisters for extra accountability and support between sessions.

Due to the intimate nature of this group, I will be thoroughly reviewing applications and conducting discovery calls to ensure best fit based on current stage of business, energetic frequency and personality.

Join the waitlist


On this private coaching intensive we will map out a customized game plan to kick-start your success. This dedicated private time also allows me to get to know you and your business better so that I can best support you throughout the course of the program.

"Within the first 2 sessions, I’d already booked 2 clients bringing in $5K alone -- which before Cara would have taken me 6 months to achieve."

I own a style consultancy and B.C. (before Cara) I was spinning my wheels not moving an inch. I spent years building a foundation and working with so many clients but couldn’t seem to make ends meet. I had built a great baby business but 4 years in, in my gut I felt there was something I should be doing but had NO IDEA what that was or how to change this pattern. I’m very skeptical by nature and never thought I’d need a coach. I stumbled upon Cara on a whim via instagram early one morning 3 months ago. I’m the type of person who needs actionable steps to follow and some sort of plan. Since day 1, Cara has provided me with an outline of what I was going to do live my dream. Within maybe the first 2 sessions, I’d already booked 2 clients bringing in $5K alone which before Cara would have taken me 6 months to achieve. 
B.C. I would work with almost any client to make ends meet and they never really did! Working with Cara and following her systems (from building a daily routine to how to create a company that allows me the financial freedom I deserve) is helping me be more selective with my clients and giving me the time to work on my business without the added stress of ‘money’. Last month I closed the month out at well over $8k and I’d never seen that level of monthly income in all 15 years of working as an adult. Can’t wait to beat that this month!

Love notes


Before working with Cara I felt like I had shiny object syndrome. I wanted to do all.the.things. which is great, but can also lead to unclear messaging and burnout. She has helped me get crystal clear on my offers and mold them around my ideal business. She has also taught me how to feel more connected to the women I serve even though much of my coaching is done online.

She has helped me push through my limiting beliefs about myself and my business which has ultimately helped me regularly fill my group coaching program at or above my goal number! I am consistently producing $15k launches and GROWING. The most valuable part about working with Cara is that she doesn't try to put me in a box or have me "do it like everyone else".

After working with Cara I now feel like "it's all happening" vs. "what if this doesn't work". I also have confidence about the future of my business. I have a better understanding of how things can/will unfold in time as I evolve as a woman and business owner. If you are going at it alone, DON'T.

"I would highly recommend working with Cara if you are looking to scale your business and simultaneously work on yourself and your growth mindset."

Working with Cara has been an absolute pleasure and has been a true game-changer for my business! After working with her in a group program offering and gaining immense clarity on how to serve my ideal client, I decided to sign up for 1:1 coaching with her to keep the momentum going in my business.

Since joining forces with Cara, I have successfully clarified my ideal client and messaging, launched an online program that now has over 4 dozen people in it, launched my own group program, on-boarded new private clients, and significantly increased my monthly income. 

The thing that I loved most about working with Cara is that she has you work on both your business strategy along with your personal abundance and worthiness mindset – for me this was the biggest advantage of signing up with a coach who would see that the two are connected. Also, as an introvert, I loved and appreciated that Cara was super respectful of how I wanted to show up in the online space to not only serve my clients but protect my own energy as well.

I would highly recommend working with Cara if you are looking to scale your business, develop clarity around your offerings and messaging, and simultaneously work on yourself and your growth mindset.

"After just 1 year in business I now have regular 5 figure months!I'm regularly booked with PRIVATE clients who come to me."

When I first started working with Cara I didn't have a business nor did I really think it was possible for me to create a business that allowed me to operate from my zone of genius. Together we did a deep dive to figure out what I truly loved and how I could actually structure that into a profitable business, and Ignite Your Soul Brand was born.  
Over the 1 year we've worked together I created webinars, appeared on a summit, was regularly featured on podcasts, and built my Instagram to over 12K now. In my previous businesses, I always struggled to figure out who I was serving and why and with Cara's help I got clear that my clients are coaches, creatives and healers and all my hard work has truly paid off. My Ignite Your Brand Vision group program sold out in 10 days and is filled with my dream clients. After just 1 year in business I now have regular 5 figure months!
I'm regularly booked with private clients WHO COME TO ME because of the support, guidance and signature success formula process that Cara led me through. I feel blessed to be able to have a business I love and be able to step into my true calling. If you're considering working with Cara I say take the plunge. The success that you desire but can't see will become your new reality. If you're serious about your dream then Cara is your coach.

"I am so grateful to have her as a coach and will forever be thankful for supporting me in every way!"

Before working with Cara I would be up every night until 4AM trying to learn everything there was to learn about building my business and finding paying clients. Freebie after freebie, webinar after webinar, I was so confused by all of the information that I was just spinning around in circles with no direction.
When I started working with Cara I was scared, overwhelmed, I had the fear of being seen, the emotions of unworthiness from my past and trying to fit into the “normal” online coaching rules. From the beginning, Cara gave me the permission to do what I was passionate about and truly loved, after going through the process 5x we finally found my perfect niche!
We created and launched my signature healing concierge service and since then I’ve gone from $0 months to 5-figure months. I've also held webinars and workshops and have been featured in online summits, podcasts, interviews, courses, retreats and radio shows. My visibility has grown exponentially, my confidence has risen, my mindset has changed and my business has grown.
Without the support, encouragement, direction and accountability of Cara I would still be spinning my wheels and not living my passionate life. I am so grateful to have her as a coach and will forever be thankful for supporting me in every way!

"Working with Cara has been one of the best business decisions I have made in my 16- year career as a Doctor."

Cara has completely changed the way I see my online biz. I was hustling and doing well in my first year but I needed a plan but didn't know where to start. 

After working with Cara for 6 months my thoughts and beliefs have completed changed. My days are more fulfilling, calmer, happier and more focused. I feel I have experienced more growth in my mindset, and personal development than ever before and it is showing in my business and personal life. I am more clear than I have ever been. My kids and husband are also reaping the benefits of a more open, relaxed mom who has a clear vision of what she wants and is enjoying the journey.

I now do mindset work daily and know with certainty it will always be a part of my life and business. I am seeing the evidence that how what you think, belief and desire all need to be aligned. Cara has many gifts for coaching but one that I think is key in contributing to her and her client's success is the way she listens and captures blocks or beliefs that are holding us back. She is direct, caring and effective in her approach and has her client's best interest at heart at all times.
If you work with Cara I have no doubt you will move forward in your business in many ways. She is a coach in every sense of the word and if you are ready to take your business to the next level and be honest with yourself about what you truly desire she will be a key aspect of your success.

"I had my first $10K month which was previously absolutely impossible to me!"

Working with Cara is a total game-changer! She helps me create clear goals and identify exactly what steps I need to take to achieve them. She has also been critical in keeping me accountable and on-track with my business. 

Before working with Cara, I was flying by the seat of my pants. I didn’t really have any direction in my business or long-term goals. Now I have somebody to hold me accountable and inspire me to create goals in my business. I felt like I was hitting a point of doing just enough to get by. It was time to take that next leap and start taking my business seriously, make some progress, and feel like I could make the impact I wanted and feel fulfilled in the work that I do.

Since working with Cara, I now have a lot more direction in my business. I had my first $10K month which was previously absolutely impossible to me. I never thought that would be a thing. Now I know who I’m speaking to and I can reach that audience on a regular basis and I feel like I’m capable of growing something huge which I never felt before. The best part of joining the mastermind is the connection with all of the amazing women involved and with Cara as well.

Being able to identify with other people going through the same struggles and having somebody make me set goals and hold me to them is huge.

"She doesn’t let me hide. And the result is that, for the first time, I am consistently getting in front of my ideal client."

Before working with Cara, I believed I could do it all on my own. I’m organized, motivated, smart and hard-working. I’ve been successful in many areas of my life, so why should business be any different, right? Yet something wasn’t working. I wasn’t expecting overnight success, but it was a heck of a lot slower than I thought it would be. I started to wonder if I was spending my time and energy in the right places. Finally, I decided to really commit and invest in my business and started working with Cara. 
Cara consistently helps me to realize what I am really capable of. She doesn’t let me hide. And the result is that, for the first time, I am consistently getting in front of my ideal client. Cara has also supported me in overcoming some deep-seated mental roadblocks around money and recognize the true value of my work. Within the first month of working together I booked my first client into my 90-day signature program—and I’m already getting ready to raise my rates with confidence! I am grateful to Cara — her support has been invaluable.

I now believe 100% in the value of having a coach and would recommend it to every entrepreneur ready to take her business to the next level!

Vanessa Sorenson

"I signed my first paying client within two sessions and now have five clients in my premium private coaching program."

I was hesitant to hire a business coach, I didn't really know if they were everything they are chalked up to be. I was completely wrong. Hiring Cara to help my business has been everything I've hoped for and more. She has given me clear direction, tools, and a specific map to gain one-on-one clients and raise my exposure — both in-person and online.
In fact, in only 3 months, with Cara's guidance, she has helped me re-work my one-on-one client coaching packages, encouraging me to raise my rates from $900 to $1800 on our first session. Just by doing this, I signed my first paying client within two sessions and now have five clients in my premium private coaching program: reveal, nourish, heal.
But Cara wouldn't let me stop there, now I'm in the process of creating an online course. Cara truly provides accountability, clear direction, guidance, and chatting once a week has been pivotal in both my success, drive and desire to grow my business.

Kelsey Jack

"Within the first 6 weeks of working with Cara, I had my first $10K month and I’ve gone on to create multiple 5 figure months."

I felt intrinsically I connected with Cara on an emotional level. I felt like she understood where I was coming from and allowed me to envision a future that was a better balance for me and my family life and would allow me to grow financially and occupationally.

Before working with Cara, I was overwhelmed, I had far too many clients, and there was a horrendous work-life balance. Within the first 6 weeks of working with Cara, I had my first $10K month, then a $15K month, and I’ve gone on to create multiple 5 figure months. I’ve raised all my prices and decreased the amount of clients I’m working with but the level of service I’m providing is far superior than anything I was able to create before.

If I had not invested in working with Cara, I wouldn’t have the success I have today and nor would I have better work-life balance. I felt incredibly supported and she was as personally invested in my success as I was. If I had not invested in Cara, I wouldn't have the success I have today and nor would I have better work-life balance. I feel much more content personally and professionally and I'm incredibly grateful.

"Working with Cara has changed how I look at my business. But most importantly, how I see myself in my business."

Working with Cara has changed how I look at my business. But most importantly, how I see myself in my business. She has taught me patience, gave me a clearer vision and has helped me organize my business in a way that makes sense and is creating a ton of leverage.  

As an experienced coach who just needed to learn how to create a thriving business, her programs supplied the tools to take away the stress and inspired me to not only think bigger but also believe I’m capable of anything I put my mind to.

Carmen Shawn

"I now have a thriving coaching business, a beautiful website with clear messaging that speaks to my true ’niche’ and stunning branding photos to bring it all to life."

I found Cara exactly when I needed her. I had just made the decision to launch my coaching business and had no idea how to put the pieces together. With Cara’s help, I was able to zero in on my target market (even more than I thought I had), nail down my sales copy and product pricing, and roll out my launch process.

Without Cara I wouldn’t have had the clarity and confidence in my WHY and truly take the leap I know I needed to take. Having been through this herself, she knows exactly what goes into launching a coaching business and provided me with all the tips and tools I needed to make it happen for myself.

I now have a thriving coaching business, a beautiful website with clear messaging that speaks to my true ’niche’ and stunning branding photos to bring it all to life. Thank you for believing in me, Cara.

Because that's how long it takes to stabilize any kind of income while working through your inner (shall we say...) 'challenges'. That infamous '$10K month' every biz coach and their dog are selling right now doesn't mean it’s going to become your new monthly salary because you’ve hit it once.

It takes several months to figure out a system that works for you, and some time (and mindset work) to recalibrate every time you break through your next level. It doesn't have to take a long time, but it certainly doesn't happen overnight.

What I'm interested in is supporting you in developing a sustainable business model so that your rates and clients can grow with you.

If you’re an introverted coach with a big message to share and you want to build a business that lasts, then I want to invite you to apply for The RISE Method Mastermind.
