Dare to Grow

Grow your online presence and learn how to attract more clicks, customers, and clients! Enrollment will reopen in 2018!

"This course gave me the skills, the courage, and the support to create my first video, write my first guest post, and start using Instagram for the first time. I also started a real email list which has been growing by leaps and bounds! I've even gotten emails back telling me how helpful my emails have been, so I feel like I'm making a difference and helping people."

Pop Quiz: Does building your online presence feel AWESOME or OVERWHELMING?

Let me guess . . .

You know you need to be blogging + updating social media + sending weekly emails but can’t always find the time to get it all done.


You have plenty of blog post ideas but haven't been hitting publish consistently, or you’re having total writer’s block over what to post.


You’re updating social media...sometimes...but are worried people will unfollow if you post or promote too much.


Or maybe you’ve been posting and posting and posting and all you’re hearing is the totally frustrating sound of crickets. #UGH


Here’s the deal...if you have a grand plan to grow your blog or business, a mediocre online presence isn’t going to cut it.

Your ideal readers, clients, and customers are already online, but if you’re creating content without a plan and a strategy to connect, THEY’LL PASS YOU BY.

It’s time to stop clicking publish + crossing your fingers, and start building an online presence that not only feels AWESOME to create but actually does its job.


Dare to Grow is your step-by-step roadmap to skip over the need-tos and the should-dos and learn the EXACT strategies that will connect more of the right people with you and what you do.


What if . . . New readers not only stuck around but shared your blog posts, showed up to your webinars, participated in your Facebook group, and were truly excited to see what products you’re launching, or were scrambling to be first in line for your new service?

What if . . . Blogging was actually FUN because you knew what types of posts to write to draw in your ideal readers, customers + clients.

What if . . . Instead of feeling awkward and annoying promoting what you do, you felt confident sharing your stuff and connecting with your audience on social media.

What if . . . You were motivated and inspired - and your audience (plus your affiliate income, sales, or client list) was finally GROWING!


I've been blogging for over 20 (yes, TWENTY) years, which means I've spent a lot of time testing different blogging + social media strategies.

Over the past 6 years my blog has helped me ditch my corporate job, build a thriving freelance design business, and then transition into selling ebooks + teaching online courses!

But learning how to grow my blog traffic, create clickable social media content, and send emails my subscribers would actually took FOREVER.

I spent weeks and months and YEARS figuring out what types of content got the most shares and how to promote my stuff without feeling gross and sales-y before finally creating a plan that kept me on track and growing consistently.

I created Dare to Grow so I can help you do the same and build an online presence that draws in more of your ideal readers, customers, or clients in WEEKS instead of YEARS.

"I was always pleasantly surprised at how involved and hands-on Sarah is. Her individual attention was worth 10x the cost of the course! It was like having a personal mentor. In our first group hangout, I asked Sarah to check out my blog and give me suggestions for what I could do today to make it better. When I did what she recommended, my pageviews for the month TRIPLED and my sales conversions went way up. I have been blogging for more than 3 years and still learned more from this class than I had in all of my own experience."

"This course was the first ever investment I made in my business and I can’t imagine where I’d be if I hadn’t stepped up and made the investment. Sarah knows her stuff - and it shows! It was more than being told what I should do, but how I could bring it to life. The community has been super helpful whenever I’ve been stuck in my business or just need to get feedback on ideas."

"The best thing I learned from Dare to Grow was how to create my own blogging plan and process that works! I'm now posting regularly every week and have streamlined both my post creation and promotion processes so I'm not a crazy overwhelmed blogger!"

- Emma-Louise Smith |

"I am in Module 2 right now and am LOVING it. You've got a gift! I'm that far in and already I feel like I've gained a ton of clarity, thank you!"

- Britton |

"The personalized feedback on my blog design and the blog chats were invaluable—it’s like having my own personal blog mentor/cheerleader helping me out! Sarah’s enthusiasm and love for what she does is very evident and I’m so happy I have gotten to know her throughout the process! All the advice was so practical and useful—I can tell how much thought was put into each lesson and I was able to apply the suggestions right away."

- Kerry |

"The best thing I learned from Dare to Grow was how to manage my time with a blogging schedule! Content planning made executing my posts much easier!"

- Dana |

"Not only was I able to get great practical advice from Sarah, but she went out of her way to give personalized advice for every blogger in the class. In addition, it was great to be able to chat with a group of highly-motivated bloggers. Everyone had great ideas to contribute and was incredibly supportive of trying new things!"

- Chrystina |

"If you’re ready to get serious about blogging, sign up now: this course is comprehensive, empowering, and fun! After implementing the DIY design, social media, and marketing techniques I learned in the Badass Babes E-course, my Twitter followers spiked and blog traffic DOUBLED. Also, Sarah is whip-smart and knows just the right questions to push you out of your comfort zone and up to the next level. The other bloggers you’ll meet in the course are icing on the cake. Getting to grow my blog alongside these inspiring kindred spirits was an amazing experience."

- Amelia |

"I’ve taken a few other blogging e-courses and this one was definitely a game changer. I came into class having a general idea of my target reader/audience and what I wanted to write about, but I didn’t feel I was quite there yet. When I came up with my mission statement (with Sarah’s help in the Google+ group!), my jaw literally dropped…it was SO right! Once I had that, it’s like all of the pieces just fell into place and it still guides my every decision I make for my blog."

- Vicky |

"I loved Sarah’s open and friendly personality. I always felt like I could ask a question and it would be answered in a way that I would understand. Not only did I take the e-course but I employed Sarah to re-design my blog at the same time. She was great to work with! I feel like she heard everything I had to say and answered all of my questions."

- Vicki |

"I’d done blogging workshops before, and I read nearly every tip and trick article I come across on Pinterest, but nothing could beat the experience of Sarah’s E-Course. Focusing on one topic every week, working through our ideas or problems, and then having the opportunity to get feedback from other bloggers like me was incredibly helpful and gratifying."

- Miranda |

"I have learned so much about blogging from Sarah and the other students. I’ve been educated in blog design, content creation, social media, and business. This isn’t classroom learning—this is practical, applicable, useful knowledge that I use literally every day. I’ve seen tangible results—my blog traffic has QUADRUPLED since I started the blog club, my following on all social media platforms has grown, and did I mention all of the community, support, and knowledge I’ve been getting?"
