It’s time to turn off your hustle mode
build a profitable business
in 24hrs a week or less
Stop me if this sounds familiar…
You’re a freakin’ idea machine, but you have soooo many ideas you never know what to focus on, and you rarely finish what you start.
You are sick and tired of hustling 24/7; you weren’t born to work this much, but you feel guilty when you take time for yourself.
You’re tired of doing #allthethings when you really want to just create and serve and chase all the shiny objects that catch your eye.
You’re overworked, underpaid, and wish you had more time to focus on your passion projects.
You’re allergic to numbers, and shudder at the idea of sticking to a plan because you don’t want to be in a box.
To stop struggling to juggle work and family at the same time!
To be able to chase all the shiny objects whenever you want!
To travel and explore without worrying about the biz!
And you want a trusted mentor to guide you and show you the way.
Hey there, I’m Ysmay!

Introducing balanced + bankable
Balanced & Bankable is an implementation program designed to help you:
quit hustling 24/7 so you have more time for what you love because life is more than just your work
get stuff done by focusing your energy on the right things so you finally stop spinning your wheels

This is an implementation and mentorship program.
Balanced & Bankable will help you…
Stay In Your Zone
Stop wasting all your time and energy on things you shouldn’t even be doing in the first place!
Create leveraged digital offers that can sell themselves on autopilot while you sleep!
get stuff done
Stay on track, meet your deadlines, and knock your goals outta the freakin’ park!
How it works
We’re going to get clear on what your vision is. Who are you? How do you want to live? What do you want to achieve?
Looking back on your vision, we’re going to decide on your goals and your projects that will be in alignment with your ideal life.
Next, we’re going to identify how you’re spending your time, your break points, your Most Essential Tasks, and your biggest time wasters.
Now that we know how you’re spending your time, we’re going to streamline so you focus on your Most Essential Tasks, and automate or eliminate your time wasters.
Then it’s time to add a little structure to your business. We’ll do this by leveraging the Fun + Fast Framework, Power Cycles, Mise en Place, and your daily huddle.
Once your productivity foundation is in place, we will work on empowerment by building your new methods into your life, and alloting for personal development and empowerment.
Don’t go it alone! I’ll be right by your side and help you hit your goals with weekly check-ins.
Monthly Pick My brain Session
Bring your questions to the call and I’ll answer them live. Afterwards, I’ll upload the recording to the site.
After the framework is in place, you’ll get monthly trainings to help you in life and in business.
Need to learn how to build programs? Design revenue streams? Write emails that convert? I gotchu covered. Once we get your foundation in place with the 5 sprints, you’ll have access to the Balanced & Bankable Training Library. Your access to the training library unlocks in September 2019.
Business Management Basics
I know, I know. The day-to-day management of your business is not fun, and it’s something you probably already outsourced to an online business manager.
It’s necessary to have a basic understanding of business management principles so you know whether or not your OBM is managing things correctly.
In this workshop, you’ll learn:
- How to create a rockstar business plan without the overwhelm
- How to manage your money with ease
- How to find help and outsource tasks
Hot Copy That Converts
There’s something magical about writing copy that compels the right customers to take action and repels the clients that are a bad fit.
This workshop looks at your copy as a whole, cohesive, tool to solidify your brand and show off your expertise (and personality!).
In this workshop you’re going to uncover real-life copywriting strategies that turn your sales pages from so-so to stellar.
- How to connect and sell without feeling sleezy
- How to write emails that subscribers can’t wait to open
- How to write sales pages that convert readers to buyers
Create Your Flagship Course
There are so many courses online these days it can feel a bit overdone, but there are courses because they freakin’ work. Courses. Make. Bank.
And you don’t have to wait until you have a massive list to create and sell a course.
In this workshop, you’re going to discover:
- The 3 must-have elements of every online course
- How to get people excited for the launch of your upcoming course
- My single best strategy for quick and accurate market research (even if you hate research!)
Attract High-End Clients with Ease
I remember the first time I charged $20k for an offer. I was terrified. I spent months talking myself out of charging those prices.
But once I did, my business took off. Attracting and serving high-end clients is an art, but it’s not a mystery.
In this workshop, I’m going to pull back the curtain and you’ll learn:
- How to bust through your high-ticket mindset blocks
- The 5 essential components of every high-end offer
- The fine art of naming your high-end program so it makes sense for your business and your ideal clients.
One of the best decisions of my professional life was to pivot from being a service provider to an agency owner. This simple, but profound, change allowed me to create more balance and more freedom.
Exclusively for VAs, OBMs, and Designers who wish to pivot to an agency model, Balanced & Bankable has an agency track where I’m going to break down the step-by-step industry secrets that you need to know to stop the hustle, and finally build an agency.
Even if you’re not sure you want to be an agency yet, the agency track will be available to you because I know when you grow as a service provider, becoming an agency is the next logical step so you break through your income ceiling.
The Agency Track unlocks after we have your business foundation in place.
How to build a S.T.A.R.™ (Strategic Task Action Retainer)
I stopped charging hourly, and within a month my revenue went up, and I was getting better clients.
Distilled into my exclusive S.T.A.R. strategy, this all-new-method for pricing your services, will be a game changer.
You’ll learn how to stop trading hours for dollars by pricing tasks and results instead of your time. I’ll teach you:
- How to setup your in-house service sheet so you never have to come up with a price off the top of your head on a sales call
- How to pitch this framework to your clients (secret: it’s better for you and them!)
- How to set your rates based on what your business needs to earn, not what all your competitors are doing.
Email Scripts to Deal with Clients
There comes a time in every business when you have to have some tough talks with your clients.
This is arguably one of the most unpleasant parts of running an agency. “What do I say? How do I say it?”
That’s why I’ve bundled up email scripts that you can plug and play into your business. You’ll get email scripts for:
- Client boundaries
- Refund refusal
- Rate increases
- Missed appointments
- Relationship termination
- Failed payment
- Expired credit card
- Past due retainer payment
- …and more!
Never be at a loss for words again.
How to Offer High-Ticket Web Design Services
Website services are hands down the most profitable offer you can have in your agency. When positioned correctly, you can sell web design services for many tens of thousands of dollars.
In this workshop I’m going to teach you:
- My upside down website pricing model so you sell the value and transformation, and not the website
- What to include in the package and what to leave out
- How to work with clients and avoid that dreaded scope creep
- How to never build a proposal for free again (you’re not in the proposal building business!)
- How to make sure your client doesn’t change direction halfway through the project
Webinar Mastery Success Kit
Webinars are an amazing tool to grow your business. Nothing converts quite like webinars, even in 2019.

In this bundle you’ll get:
- A 20 page PDF workbook will help you plan out your webinar and deliver an amazing experience for your attendees while also selling your products.

I don’t believe in work/life balance. I just believe in balance.
Sometimes balance means you are able to equitably distribute time and energy to all areas of your life that matter.
Sometimes that means you work your tail off for a week, and then you take the next week off.
But it doesn’t mean living in constant hustle mode.
In Balanced & Bankable we’ll explore tactics and strategies for creating a more balanced life.
I also believe to truly have an impact in the world, and live the life you want, you need to make money.
Without creating offers, selling them, and serving your customers, you don’t have a business — you have a hobby.
But so many entrepreneurs just create products on a whim — or, they get stuck and don’t create any at all.
In Balanced & Bankable I’ll help you create offers that are highly valuable, easy to create, and can be sold on autopilot through smart automation so you can turn hustle mode off.
VIP Case Study
When Crystal came to me…
She was the owner of a yoga studio in Chicagoland, working constantly, and barely making ends meet because she was so overwhelmed she couldn’t focus on growing her impact.
All she could do was maintain the status quo.
And it was taking a serious toll.
She was burned. out. Self-care was on the back burner, and she felt guilty about putting herself first.
Crystal successfully sold her yoga studio, and started the Yoga Goddess Academy, an online yoga training platform that empowers thousands of women to become their best and healthiest.
Crystal is now the author of the best selling book Goddesses Fart Too, and leads yoga retreats and teacher trainings around the world.
She gets paid to live her truth, help others, and travel.
After one of our in person VIP sessions in Chicagoland.
All because of the strategies and systems we have implemented in her business.
We narrowed her focus. Streamlined her offers, and optimised her business to run lean and efficiently.
I have guided Crystal through becoming a digital business owner, writing a best selling book, and selling out retreats all around the world.
And, as she said in her video, she’s on track to double, if not triple, her revenue. (That’s a 200%-300% increase; industry average is 5%-10%.)
I can get you these results, too.
In addition to my years of experience and track record:
I hold certifications from DigitalMarketer in Customer Acquisition, Customer Value Optimisation, and Copywriting.
This is for you if…
You are tired of being overworked and underpaid (this isn’t what you signed up for!), but you can’t seem to get yourself out of this rut.
You are a digital business owner — whether you’re a VA, web designer, or coach — with something of value to offer your clients.
You are tired of doing all the things all the time (especially admin or tech stuff) but you aren’t sure how to get out of the way.
You want to stay in your zone of genius once and for all and let someone else run your business but you know you have to make some changes first.
This is not for you if…
You love being stuck in victim mode and don’t actually want to make any lasting, sustainable changes to your business.
You are all about the hustle and love being a workaholic (Balanced & Bankable is about getting out of hustle mode).
You are here on this page looking for a virtual assistant, tech admin, or OBM (this is a mentorship, not a Done For You service).
You are expecting results overnight, and expect some sort of guarantee of results. (Your mileage may vary because I don’t run your business.)

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this a mastermind?
Nope. This is a 12 month implementation program designed to help you increase your impact, grow your revenue, and live in balance by strategically structuring your days.
Is this some get rich quick thing?
Nope. Not even a little bit.
You’re going to have to put in some effort, and I make no guarantees about the kind of success you’ll achieve.
I'm already in business, but I'm not making money. Is this for me?
Yes! So often when new entrepreneurs aren’t making money it’s because they’re focusing all their energy on the wrong things, or they’re not completing things. Balanced & Bankable is designed to help you focus on the right stuff and actually get it done.
I just launched my business; is this for me?
Yes! It’s never too early to start working on your strategy and business foundations! When you get setup right from the beginning, you’ll save yourself a lot of trouble and hassle later on.
Can I upgrade to VIP later?
Maybe! VIP spots are limited, so I can’t guarantee one will be available later on.

I offer a 30 day refund policy, beginning the first day the program begins.
