Give Your Business Room To Grow

Join me for my incredible live CEO days

CEO Days are where you focus solely on tasks that move the needle forward. It’s a time to put your CEO hat on and work on the internal projects that will grow your business and help you hit your big goals. My CEO days go one step further because they are guided around three specific topics in a community environment so you get peer support and take away new skills while moving the needle!

Are you ready to level up?

Is this you?

  • You are a solo business owner with competing priorities and sometimes don’t know what to focus on first, second, or even third to move your business forward in a real way.
  • You can get overwhelmed in your business, and you don’t have a clear sense of direction for your best next moves.
  • Time is slipping away from you, and you are not accomplishing as much as you would like.
  • You work better in a group environment where someone is holding you accountable to drive results.
  • You are missing out on clients because you are not organized and don’t have the right processes in place.
  • You are not paying attention to all areas of your business.
  • You find yourself repeatedly procrastinating about things you know need to be done but just can’t find the time to do.
  • Taking time out for strategic planning would help; you just can’t find the time.
  • You would love to see other people’s faces who get the challenges of running a small business.
  • You know that now is the time for you to do something different.

Come join Susan Elford and her community of committed business owners for three seperate full days away from the busyness of working IN your business, to work ON your business for some focused time.

Why You Need These CEO Days


    Friday, February 24th, 2023; 9 am-3 pm MST

    Is this you?

    • You keep trying to work faster, harder, more but don’t ever seem to get everything done.
    • You keep hitting the same plateau year after year.
    • You keep trying to learn new things and ways of working to be more productive but have trouble finding time to implement them.
    • You don’t think you can afford to hire anyone to help you but you can’t seem to get it all done yourself.
    • You’re overwhelmed with your to-do list
    • You have a plan but it’s not working how you wanted it to (sigh.)
    • You have all the best intentions but can’t seem to get to the stuff that you know will really move your business forward (how do you work on the most important things when everything seems important?)
    • You don’t understand why it has to be so hard to move things forward (feels like you’re trudging uphill)
    • You had hoped you’d have more clients in the hopper by now but they’re just not showing up like you had hoped.
    • You like to set aside time for planning but never do it on your own (yawn, so boring by yourself)
    • You are growing and you can’t keep up with the pace of work and you need a plan to deal with that (high five! This is the right direction!)
    • Maybe something else….?

    This leads me to the big question I have for you right now:

    Are you working on the right things, or are you working on all the things?

    As business owners and solopreneurs, we have to work efficiently on the right things (not all the things) and be creative with implementing systems and processes that free up our time, so we don’t have to spend a fortune on outsourcing to get all the work done.

    Trust me, after 20+ years of running my solopreneur business (with contracted external support), I know it can be overwhelming to make all the decisions and keep all the balls in the air.

    Join Us for Accelerate! Your Productivity with Susan Elford and her Special Guest Speaker.

    Susan Elford

    Leadership Coach and Small Business Mentor to professional women, Susan works with leaders and entrepreneurs to help them design, build & promote meaningful and successful careers and businesses. During this special CEO day focused on productivity, Susan will focus on tools, methodology and mindset shifts you can incorporate in your business, tomorrow.

    Jackie Appleby

    Jackie is the founder and CEO of Diligent Assistant, a business management company that specializes in helping small business owners to streamline their business operations and work smarter, not harder. As an Online Business Manager (OBM) Jackie works with her clients, strategically to lighten their loads. It’s not about getting more done, it’s about having less to do!

    That’s why I’ve created Align Your Productivity. New for 2023, Align your Productivity is a whole CEO day spent on tackling that overwhelming To-Do list and ensuring you’re spending your time on the right things, not all the things.

    We’ll be working on:

    • How to create systems and processes in your business so you can free up your time for your creative genius
    • Understanding what your creative genius is, so you can look at out-sourcing or delegating what you don’t do best, or tasks that are consuming your time or energy.
    • Boosting your mindset so you look at all those tasks differently
    • Ensuring you’re working in a way that optimizes your energy, not depletes it
    • Introducing you to different time-saving systems and supports that will help you get more done in less time

    AND… I’m excited to bring to my virtual stage, guest speaker.. Jackie Appleby. Jackie is one of the valuable members of my team. Jackie will be speaking to us about better managing our time, 

     You won’t want to miss this exciting day that you can devote to working ON your business so you can work more effectively IN your business going forward.

     And we’ll do it all in community, because it’s just so much more fun and, well… inspired!

    • An understanding of where you are with your business targets to date (don’t worry if you didn’t make any yet for 2023, we’ll design some together)
    • Clearly, knowing what you want to achieve by the end of 2023
    • A plan of what success looks like for you this year
    • What you NEED to do over the summer to ensure you don’t lose momentum
    • Having made some smart business decisions to move your business forward

      Susan’s CEO days are incredibly beneficial to the business owner who wants to thrive.

      But don’t just take our word for it, take a look at these testimonials!

      Committed to my Success – Susan has created effective tools to help me define where I want to go, and through her coaching, she offers continued support to my journey. Her business smarts, leadership and coaching skills, and her vibrant and fun personality make that journey enjoyable and entertaining. Her commitment to my success, allows me to see the possibilities with my own brand and aspirations for my business Wide Open Spaces.

      Michelle Wright

      Owner, Wide Open Spaces

      I came to Susan in pure panic – desperately wanting change (personally and professionally) but no idea how to figure it out. Susan has many incredible gifts – she can perfectly articulate what you’re trying to say, she asks all the right questions, and she respectfully and gently pushes you to discomfort. Susan has had my back for more than a year (and we’re not done yet) and my life is transforming. I’m happier and brighter. I’m less anxious and moody. I have more energy to do the things I love and want to pursue. My career is shifting. It’s truly an awakening experience and once you set your intentions, watch out! I wouldn’t be where I am today without Susan’s compassion, coaching and program. I am at peace.

      Veronica Groat

      Senior communications advisor

      After working with Susan in her Accelerate! Mastermind program, which includes her incredible CEO days, my business and mindset is in a different place compared to when I started with her.  What’s more, my last two months have been the highest revenue I’ve made so best to keep doing what is working and I’ve re-enrolled for another session!

      Tracey Guillet

      Clinical Social Worker, Owner, Quiet Pathways

      The Accelerate! program offers a creative and productive way to help entrepreneurs develop a business plan that is meaningful and connected to your full life. Susan’s expansive, creative and methodical approach created a clear way for me to connect what’s intrinsically important to me to a new business field.

      Diane Rennie, APR, CPCC

      Communications Consultant and Professional Coach
