I'm your Friendly Fairy BUT-Kicker(your what, now?!).
I wave my magic wand over solopreneurs like you so you can step, hop or skip into your vision of success -- not someday, but NOW.
As it turns out, your fairy godmother doesn't conjure carriages out of pumpkins. She's actually a BUT-kicker. (And no, I don't mean butt-kicker. Sometimes I do that, too, and always in the nicest way possible.)
What's on your list of BUTs?
"I'd love to be a successful solopreneur, BUT ..."
"I'd love to make more money, BUT ..."
"I want to be more visible, BUT ..."
It's time for you to stop wishing, dreaming, and hoping and start actually having what you want. Together, you and I will banish the Evil "BUT" that tricks you into thinking you can't achieve your dreams.
Repeat after me: But, Be Gone!
Ummm, I can't hear you.
See how a tired, middle-aged woman broke free from a tall, gleaming tower of terror, where she was stuck in a job she hated, and -- like magic! -- became your fairy BUT-Kicker.
When you hear a "BUT," ask yourself:
1. In my heart of hearts, do I REALLY want what came before the BUT?
2. If I do, then what step will I take today?
Put BIC -- yep, Butt In Chair -- every Wed. to make progress & play alongside other inspiring solopreneurs, authors and others who are getting things DONE.

Cats have been some of my best teachers. Yes, cats!
They live a magical life, filled with play and rest, friskiness and fun--all of the joys we want, too.
These are the 3 claws of "whisker wisdom":
(1) Ask for what you need, when you need it.
(2) If it's not what you want to do, don't do it.
(3) Indulge yourself in both rest and play.
Cats don't live in the world of "but ...". They live in the world of "I'm doing this ...". Period.
They don't wait for permission or approval, or for someone to tell them what to do.
They respond to what calls to them without questioning anything, ever.
Can you imagine a cat saying to themselves,"I really want to take a nap, but what will people think of me?"
Next time you're listening to the BUT, act like a cat.
I have learned a lot from my beautiful feline friends:
Tack, Chelsea, Emma, Sophia (in the photo) and -- the only one who is still with me -- Starbuck.
"I would recommend the Accountability Coach Training program 100 percent! This is hands down the best course I have participated in for a very long time.
It’s practical, I’ve learnt by doing and implemented what I’ve learned immediately. I love the simplicity of the approach, and anyone who is a coach or wants to start a coaching business can do it."
Mary Strange, accountability coach
"A big thank you to Mary Schiller who is the gift that keeps on giving. Mary is clear, concise and cuts through confusion and overwhelm."
Angela Durrant, maverickcommunication.co.uk
"Mary has helped me immeasurably. Honestly, it’s hard to put into words. She’s introduced me to the idea that what I want is valid, achievable and, actually, easy!
I would strongly recommend Mary to anyone considering working with her. She is direct, uncompromising, kind, generous, very smart and altogether wonderful!"
