Who I am & why I created this program
Hi, my name is Yarrow and I am a web designer, business mentor and tech fairy for people who want to make a difference in the world.
In the last seven years I have supported hundreds of small business owners through courses, live workshops and heartfelt 1:1 support in building successful online platforms without selling their soul or living on their phones.
I love demystifying tech in a way that is fun and empowering for a wide range of people and I also enjoy thinking about community care for small businesses, resilience in times of crisis and re-thinking our relationship to goals.
The Livelihood Community is exactly what I would have wanted when I started out – comprehensive step by step training, a community of like minded folks & gentle accountability at a fair price.
What others are saying
Yarrow offers a supportive, kind business community for a small business owner at any stage. The lessons are easy to understand and relevant, and fun to go through as well. I always try to make the live calls b/c the topics are engaging and the community is nice to be with. I am grateful for this community as I launch my online business! Highly recommend.
I’m so grateful to have found this community! I appreciate Yarrow’s authenticity, guidance and support and feel inspired & empowered by the other members as we seek to live in alignment with our goals , values, and dreams.
Joining the community and working with Yarrow has been incredibly supportive and empowering to my business. I have been able to understand where i’m at in each area of starting and a business from tech stuff, social media fear to imposter syndrome! Being part of a community like allows you and your business to flower and blossom. The accountability is vital support!
I love being a part of this community and have learned so much from Yarrow and everyone in this group. I was seeking some business support that was anti-capitalist and not gross or manipulative about marketing and I found that here. I highly recommend Embodied Business Community to anyone looking for some clarity around what they’re offering and how to get it out into the world, but want to do that in a way that is intentional and unique to them. I have so much more confidence and a clearer vision of my offerings after having been a part of this community. Thank you Yarrow
Yarrow’s course has been so helpful for me starting out with a fully digital business. So far the program has provided gentle structure, a supportive environment, and loads of educational content ranging from technical topics to more emotional and somatic awareness of ourselves in our businesses. It is really helpful to be working with someone who simultaneously understands having an anti-Capitalist ethic + needing to meet one’s material needs. I enjoy how much creativity and pleasure is encouraged in our work and how that can lead to so many possibilities.
It’s unusual when you’re starting out – or even when you’ve been in busy many years – to have a supportive community of others working through the same challenges, and that’s exactly what the EBC provides. There are enough members that a good handful are likely to be in the same trade and understand its idiosyncrasies, but also lots of others in aligned trades so the sources of inspiration aren’t limited by a single, dominant perspective. At the same time it’s small enough that it feels intimate and supportive and there’s real potential to find individual buddies or small groups for peer support. Best of all, there is a broad set of shared, anticapitalist, antiracist etc values among the membership and in the gentle facilitation of the community.
Joining the Embodied Business Community is the best thing I could have done for my business this year. The support, inspiration, guidance, practical tools and genius ideas I received from the diverse workshops are invaluable. I’ve been able to tackle technical problems and improve my systems, while at the same time reflecting on my personal journey and challenges in this capitalist society, through deep conversations with wonderful sensitive people! I didn’t know such a safe space was possible in a community of entrepreneurs. 6 months into the program, I am still blown away by all the content available and have already gotten way more out of it than I was hoping for. Yarrow is a brilliant facilitator, generous, clear-minded, easy-going and the most gentle and inclusive! Thank you so much for creating this truly magical space.
I am SO relieved and delighted to have stumbled into the Embodied Business School. After a short harrowing experience in very loud brash super expensive online business coaching program, I left feeling overwhelmed and lost.
Yarrow’s authentic soft practicality and trauma informed approach offers a cozy space to land for new entrepreneurs, artists and healing arts practitioners and those still in the envisioning phase of stepping into the terrifying territory of creating an online business.
We are all in different phases of creating an online business some advanced others like me still in the envisioning and yet i have never felt intimidated or overwhelmed i always feel welcome and am able learn through osmosis from the experience of other members in the DIY Community.
This is a program that has empowered me to learn all the processes so that I can replicate them for myself anytime I need. Yarrow does not hold anything back and gives very practical steps for every aspect of your business. She has a well of knowledge and experience and is able to express it with easy to learn content that everyone can benefit from. I have full confidence that my business is set on a solid foundation with the support of Yarrow and her wisdom.
I really appreciate how down-to-earth, real and simple your approach is, it feels like a breath of fresh air -actually, like a deep, deep exhale, taking so much of the pressure of this ‘online thing’ off..I have been through most of the DIY Business Magic course, and it’s felt so nourishing and supportive, which is very different to past experiences I’ve had with business courses. I wish yours was the first course I’d taken, it would have saved me a lot of obsessing over doing things a certain way…!
How the program works
Once you become a member of the Livelihood Community you’ll get immediate access to the community over at Mighty Networks (which you can think of as our own little Facebook including an app for learning on the go!) as well as our course, an archive of recordings and a rich schedule of upcoming calls.
The monthly group coaching calls are an amazing way to meet others and get feedback – if you can’t make it live you get to submit your questions in advance and watch the replay after.
In addition to that the themed workshops, co-working spaces and seasonal retreats are a great way to stay motivated and create real, lasting change in the way you work.
This program asks you to show up – it’s a rich, supportive experience and you’ll get more out of it the more you put in.
