BECOME THE CEO YOUr business needs you to be
Running a business can be hard. You’re wearing all the hats, your to-do list seems to grow by the minute, and sometimes being the boss feels downright overwhelming!
The fact that you’re experiencing this moment in time means you’re on the entrepreneur’s journey. You’re right where you should be. You’re not alone. And there is another way to walk this path!
We start our businesses as Tacticians, learning how to do all the things largely out of necessity. But one day you realize you’re at your breaking point. You simply you can’t keep up with the growth of your business and continue wearing all the hats. There are only so many hours in the day and your time, energy and focus are precious!
It's precisely in this moment that you must learn to become the CEO. You must assume the strategic role. You must rise to the occasion & become the leader your business needs.
Thrive guides & empowers you to rise into your role as CEO.

THE PROGRAM details
EACH WEEK OF THIS 8-WEEK PROGRAM, YOU’LL LEARN AND IMPLEMENT A NEW PRACTICE TO PREPARE YOU FOR LEVELING-UP IN YOUR BUSINESS & STEPPING INTO THE ROLE OF CEO.
week 1 - your growth mindset
The business of becoming a successful entrepreneur is about a whole lot more than selling awesome products & services. How you show up each and every day in your business affects how your customers perceive you, the quality of what you deliver, and the type of leader and CEO you become.
A growth mindset is critical in business. With a growth mindset, you realize you can improve through practice (vs. seeing your abilities as innate and unchangeable). You see failure as a chance to learn (vs. a permanent state). You see critical feedback as a chance to improve (vs. a personal attack). Rather than giving up when obstacles come your way, you focus on a journey of continual improvement.
This is the path of successful entrepreneurship and that’s why we start here, because mindset is half the battle. You’ll learn how to adopt and embrace a growth mindset in your life and business.
week 2 - your business assessment
With your newly planted growth mindset, you’ll take a deep dive into your current business to establish a baseline. Where are you right now? What’s working? What’s not? What’s keeping you up at night?
As the CEO, your role is to deeply understand the state of your business and to set the direction for the future. If you want to grow, you have to know which way to go - which is where regularly assessing your business and getting comfortable with The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is so important. It’s this knowledge, combined with your growth mindset, that guides great decision making about growth, evolution, and pivots in your business.
We’ll also explore goal setting & focus through the lens of the CEO. It’s time to level up!
week 3 - your growth priorities
How long is your to-do list? Is it overflowing onto countless pages with some tasks so old it feels embarrassing? If that sounds like you, you’re not alone.
Trying to prioritize these giant to-do lists can feel akin to climbing Mt Everest, but the good news is there is a better way. It starts with understanding the framework for how to prioritize your work as the CEO of your business.
In this module you’ll learn the 5 areas most tasks fall into. At the top, you’ll discover those money generating tasks that drive growth in your business. On the bottom, you’ll discover those backend tasks that generate no money and touch no customers. With this knowledge, you’ll then redraft your to-do list and get a sense for how your time should be spent to truly grow your business!
week 4 - your intentional day
Are you running your business? Or is your business running you? If you’re constantly feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, and like your life is no longer your own, this module is going to change your world.
We live in a society that rewards busyness. The constant going & doing gets worn like a badge of honor, that eventually leads to a giant crash & burn, complete with binge eating, downing a bottle of wine, and hibernating under your covers with a self-induced cold. Sound familiar?
Busyness is bullshit. It’s time to start living and working with intention. And that starts with YOU. You are literally in the driver’s seat as the CEO, yet all too often entrepreneurs stay shackled to a schedule that doesn’t serve their health, sanity, or productivity.
In this module you will learn how to structure & live out your day with intention. We’ll explore a variety of issues including saying yes, saying no, aligning your work to your natural rhythms, valuing your time, time blocks, and more!
week 5 - your a-team
As your business grows and you continue to rise into your role as the CEO, you’ll learn just how much the people around you matter. Do they elevate your business? Do they contribute to your vision? Do they embody the values of your brand?
Whether you’re a solopreneur or leading a team of ten, the people you surround yourself with can make or break you. In this module we’ll explore two different, yet equally important lessons in building teams.
We’ll begin by looking inside your current business and identifying tasks that simply don’t need to belong to you. If you’re going to be the CEO, you’re going to need some help to do it, and this exercise will help you quickly identify what to get off your plate & how to do it.
Then we’ll look at your life at large. There are 8 specific people that every entrepreneur needs on her own personal board of directors. You’ll learn how to build that team & how to leverage their superpowers for good!
week 6 - your simplified systems
Have you ever noticed just how much activity repeats in your business? From creating client proposals, to drafting and scheduling social media, to updating Quickbooks…you are constantly repeating work.
Yet a lot of this repetitive work happens “ad hoc”, which is to say the steps are largely captured only in your brain & that’s anything but efficient! As the CEO of your business, you mission is to work smarter, not harder. That’s where systems & processes come into play!
Anything that repeats in your business can be improved with system or process. It removes the “overthinking” and helps make your job easier because all you have to do is execute the pre-determined steps. In this module you’ll learn how to create & implement routines that support your growth, help you delegate, and improve results for your business.
week 7 - your beautiful life
You can make money doing anything, but the fact that you chose to become an entrepreneur puts you in a special camp. Your drive & passion to see your dreams become a reality lead you here. But it might not be enough to keep you here.
Entrepreneurs often burn the candle at both ends. When work consumes the lion’s share of our time, energy, and resources, it often leaves little leftover for personal pursuits, fun with family and friends, or just play for play’s sake.
In this module, we’ll explore a holistic view of life as the CEO. You’ll explore what balance means to you, while setting some non-negotiables that help keep your energy & motivation high to keep running that awesome business of yours!
week 8 - your rockstar routines
By this point, you’ll already be experiencing awesome results from the new practices you’ve implemented in your life & business. You’ll even be experiencing a significant shift in how you perceive yourself as the leader & CEO of your business. Which raises the question…How do you keep this goodness going?
In the final module, you will learn how to continue implementing what you’ve learned in this program, setting yourself up for success. You’ll learn the routines that every rockstar CEO implements in her business to stay on track, focused, and empowered. We’ll give you the tools & a full calendar to drop the dates right into your calendar.
You’re a CEO on the rise and we can’t wait to see you grow!

“Hiring Hilary as my business coach has been the single most valuable thing I have done for business development since starting as a freelancer 3 years ago. Her knowledge, expertise and professionalism has provided an enormous amount of momentum for Drake Strategies and produced immediate results. For anyone looking for encouragement, wisdom and growth in their business, I would highly recommend Hilary.”
— Stefani Zimmerman Drake | Drake Strategies
“If you’re reading this, go ahead and hire Hilary. No, but really. Do it. There’s a reason why you’re here, right? Some part of you KNOWS you have a great business within you but you need accountability, a sounding board, guidance and a PLAN. That’s what Hilary gives you. Make the investment - you won’t be sorry! I’m a bootstrappin’ gal myself and I can honestly say coaching was the best money I’ve ever spent in my business. In just 12 weeks, I went from clueless about how to pivot my existing struggling biz, completely unclear on who my audience was, and entirely uncertain what steps to take next. I was ... ummmm.. . floundering to put it nicely. By the end of our time together, I discovered a niche that I LOVE to serve + created an entire bomb ass online course to offer them + had the tools to plan my year ahead. Hilary is the real deal! Okay, so seriously. Why are you still reading this? Hit that ‘apply now’ button and buckle up for the best ride ever!”
— Phyllis Brasenell | The Saucy Mama Co.
“Hilary, you have helped me so much in such a short amount of time. While I’ve truly valued the support I’ve had in my business up until this point, I feel like our work at this particular time in my life and business has really given me a freaking launch strategy that really works in a way I’ve been desiring for quite some time. YOU are amazing and a badass and I’m SO grateful for your support, your friendship and the ability to witness what you’re creating in the world. Thank you always.”
— Stephanie Burg | Stephanie Burg Coaching

“You have such a gift for what you do, and you’ve been so easy to confide in and talk with about things that I felt very unsure about, vulnerable almost. Our sessions sure came at the right time and everything fell into place perfectly for me. I feel much more confident and at peace with what once was a sh*t show in my brain!”
— Schanen Smith | High Vibe Media
“Working with Hilary really pushed my business to the next level. She helped to solidify the vision I have for my company and what I need to do to get there.”
