What if you could earn 2-3x what you do now in your business working fewer hours?

Just imagine what it would feel like to have the focus, systems, and support in place to:

  • Deliver on your deadlines instead of finding ANYTHING else to do when you see those red circles creeping up on your calendar.
  • Be free from debt and make the kind of money you’ve always known was possible in a few short months (sans guilt-trip).
  • Have the freedom to take off to the cottage for a week or break for midday margaritas while your business runs itself.
  • Choose who you work with, because your services and products are flying off the shelves like adult colouring books.
  • Respect the boundaries that keep you sane, so there’s no resentment toward clients or resistance around your work.
  • Honor commitments to yourself and your family (even if it’s as simple as weekly Zumba class or Tuesday night tacos).
  • But most of all, do what you love and leave a legacy that you’re proud of while actually enjoying the process.

Truthbomb: This isn’t a life reserved for TED-talkers and industry influencers. You can have it, too.

But you need more than the right skills, tools, and mindset to win at the entrepreneurial game...

You need a concrete plan to scale-up a sustainable, profitable business that works for YOU — not the other way around...

And more importantly, real-world business training and accountability from someone who’s been there, overcome that.

I’m Shelagh, a Business Consultant who turns your flame of ambition into a fire that sparks growth, lights up your life, and spreads your impact without the threat of burnout.

Through my fluff-free business strategy and hands-on support, I join forces with brazen business ladies who are ready to lose the excuses, so they can find the breakthroughs, cash flow, and joy in their business.

Check out how we can multiply your business income 2-3x starting today and create a life of more fun, freedom and flexibility.

About Shelagh

Shelagh Cummins is a Business Consultant, Trainer and Keynote Speaker who helps women entrepreneurs scale a profitable business — without drowning in debt, forfeiting family time, or working in their sleep. Through fluff-free business strategy and hands-on support, she helps you lose the excuses, so you can find the breakthroughs, cash flow, and joy in your business.

Who I am, and why I want to help you succeed.

It was a Wednesday in October at 8:45 am and the school bell had just rung. I stood in front of my class, and realized that after 15 years, my passion for teaching had dimmed.

I was at the top of my pay scale, but knew I would never be able to afford the opportunities for my children that I wanted, or have the widespread impact I desired. So I traded in my job security for a parenting blog, a tutoring business, and odd corporate training gigs that kept my family financially afloat.

These early business-building experiences created a wellspring of wisdom for other women entrepreneurs who want to learn how to scale a business, build a team, and make more money while creating more freedom and flexibility in their life. But it wasn’t until I was the MC at a women’s business conference that I discovered my true calling and began facilitating women’s online business training.

My unique background in experiential education combined with corporate leadership training inspires my practical, hands-on approach to getting real results for my clients. My ultimate mission is to show other women that it’s possible to build a profitable, sustainable business — without drowning in debt, forfeiting family time, or working in their sleep.

Today, I am an in-demand business consultant, coach and speaker. I work closely with women entrepreneurs and entrepreneur organizations who want to Shake their MoneymakerTM, make strategic power moves that help them scale faster, and share their smarts and skills with premium clients who value what they’re worth.

Shelagh has a Masters in Education (University of Toronto), Effectiveness Coaching Certificate and Strategic Intervention Coaching Certificate. She is also the creator of Productive, an all-in-one business tool designed to take your days from busy to productive. To learn more, visit

Are you being pigheaded when you group your business

Are You Being Pig Headed In How You Run Your Business?

There have been a few of articles recently the demise of businesses – and the frustration kept mounting as I was reading them – because all the signs were totally visible that their business was going downhill fast – and it did – and brought the business owners with them.

There is no Badge of Honor for sticking on a business path that isn’t serving you.

As the Business Owner, you have certain responsibilities to uphold and data to collect to ensure you are making the best decisions for your company.

In this Facebook Live, I share the 3 areas where I see Business Owner avoiding or sticking their head in the sand about the reality of their company.

I don’t know about you, but I am just back to work this week after a couple weeks off with my family where I really didn’t do much.

I had my set and forget marketing that was happening behind the scenes, so that I could breath easy and take a little bit of a step back.
