Ready to transform the way you
run your business and your life?

You're a discerning, intuitive entrepreneur who's ready to become the architect of your business and life

  • You have a vision of a thriving business but no time to create a plan so you're spinning in the daily grind.
  • You're overwhelmed with decisions so you don't know what to do next — build a new website, raise your rates, or hire an assistant.
  • You're in the closet with your finances and stressed about money so you can't make confident financial decisions.
  • You're spending time on things that are not your strengths so the tech challenges, staff issues, and hours of DIY learning are sucking the passion out of you.
  • You're brilliant at what you do but you can't seem to articulate a clear enough message so you're not attracting your ideal clients.
  • You're stuck with outdated limiting stories about the money you can make and what's possible for your business so you keep sabotaging your success. 

You know there must be an easier way.

I knew I didn’t want struggle for years in building my business,  and working with Leah was my express ticket past all of that. Her encouragement and at times, tough love has opened doors for me that I never knew I could get to, let alone walk through gracefully.
— Lindyn Williams

What if it was possible to redesign your business so that it
truly supports the life you want to live? 

Wouldn't it feel incredible to...

 I was incredibly supported in very tangible ways such as marketing, finances and branding, but the overriding theme to Leah’s work is really a gentle stripping away of your stories and silencing of those internal critics that hold you back from realizing your dreams. I’ve sold my work, have paintings in private collections and I have hosted Art & Yoga Retreats in Spain. My intangible but priceless results: clarity, focus. joy and confidence.

Hands down, working with Leah and being part of The DDA Business Academy has been a game changer, both for my business and for me personally. What really makes working with Leah special is the way she generously supports her clients. She has helped me move big rocks in my business and supported me through some of the hardest months of my life.

Leah and the DDA community have been instrumental in having created my business and life that I love. I would not be where I am without her fierce devotion to my process and journey.

I'm a business strategist and lifestyle designer, the creator of The DDA Method and CEO of THE DEFINE DESIGN ALIGN CO.

I've been an entrepreneur for over two decades, owned successful businesses in four countries in health, marketing, import, education, and offshore finance with a brief stint packing mangoes in the desert. 🙂 

I’ve also been lost, crushed by self-doubt, lived with chronic pain and assholes and know the desperation of bankruptcy. Suffering and I were once on a first-name basis. 

And… I’ve independently raised an amazing kid. I’ve climbed mountains and traveled the globe. I've built an amazing business and community that consistently generates six figures with integrity.

I've had the absolute pleasure of helping hundreds of courageous, uber-savvy business owners,  reclaim their lives, align their businesses and create freedom on their terms. It would be my honour to dance with you.
