An Easier and Faster Way to Start and Grow Your Solo Business...

Tired of Trying to Figure It All Out On Your Own ?

Shandra Moran, Founder of The Transit Lounge

  • You've had a successful career and now you want to start and grow your own business... you're ready to be your own boss and create a work life that really works for you...
  • But there's so many ideas, and so much information out there - and it feels like there is always so much to be done...
  • It's hard to know what to do first, how to do it and when you'll find the time to do it all...

Hi, I'm Shandra. I work with women who've had a successful career 

and now want to start and grow their own solo business.

You’re used to being a high performing employee...

... but the shift to starting your own business requires a new way of thinking and working... 

You want to create a successful and profitable business as soon as possible - without burning out or going broke along the way...

You only have so much time, and there's a lot to be done.

You need to make sure your business is going to be viable and that the decisions you make will help create a business that supports the lifestyle you want to enjoy for the next phase of your work life.

You don't want to waste your time or money on things that won't help your business grow!

Even though you're savvy, starting and growing a business means there's A LOT of new things to learn - and doing the wrong things at the wrong time can cost you time and money... not to mention take a massive toll on your sparkling sense of humour!

Trying to figure it all out on your own can be overwhelming and exhausting...

You can have ideas and passion - but if the foundation of your business is not solid from the start, and you don't take action, you'll struggle to get the momentum you need to get things going or growing...

If you want to create a 'solo' business you're not alone...

Over 60% of businesses in Australia are 'non employing' - meaning they have no employees other than the business owner - that's A LOT of women out there working alone, trying to figure it out on their own... but it doesn't have to be that way...

Starting a successful solo business has a lot of moving parts for you to work through...


Where do you want your business to take you?

What's the plan - 
how will you do it?

What are the steps you need to take right now?

You can start out with so many ideas and then waste time spinning your wheels without much progress...

Your time and attention seems to be pulled in so many directions, which makes it feel like you're not making as much progress as you really want to...

What you need is a proven pathway to get you

from your initial ideas to living the dream... 

You've got skills and experience...

You've probably got a vision and a good idea of what you want your business to be and by when you want to do it - and then 'life', or Covid, or a shitty boss, or any number of other things gets in the way of you getting started, or changes the direction you need to go... 

Like Kim...

She'd had a successful career, but then started questioning what she wanted for the rest of her career...

She had dreams and ideas of a less stressful life, one that was busy, but fulfilling instead of busy and stressful and soul crushing....  

She had planned to give herself time - maybe a year, or so - to make a plan before she left her 'well paying', 'aspirational' and 'secure' job...  

Instead, after one too many long days and unreasonable demands,  she'd had enough and resigned. Without a plan.

In that moment she was both exhilarated and a little terrified. 

Then she did a coaching program with me to help fast track her results - she didn't try to do it all alone.

Most women starting a business don't have a lot of people around them who also run their own business - which means their friends and family can't help them with the challenges they're going through...

Kim was able to get really clear on what she wanted for the next phase of her work life, what she had to learn, test and do... Because of that, she started her business a lot sooner than she had originally thought - in the middle of Covid.

Was it all smooth sailing for Kim? 

Nope. BUT - now she has her own business that's growing and moving with her as she keeps learning and taking action....

There's still things she's working on and towards, but there's no doubt that she's a lot further along than she would have been if she tried to figure it all out by herself...

Without the right people around you to go to for support or advice, starting a business can be time consuming and frustrating... 

But working privately with a coach can be expensive - especially when you're just starting out...

Money tips for women in business

Perhaps you like the idea of working with a coach, and know that if you had some external perspective, support and accountability from someone with business experience you'd make progress faster.

But - you're watching your dollars right now and it can be a big investment to work with a coach... 

When I was first starting out in business I wanted the support and accountability I knew a coach would give me, but at first I wasn't ready to invest thousands of dollars straight away.

So where can you get the support and direction you need?

Sure there's free business start up Facebook groups - but without much structure and SO MANY people in there no one really gets to know you and your business...

In some groups you can get lost in the crowd - without anyone providing the sort of insights, or support you really need...

You can ask a question in a free group, but without people really knowing who you are, what you do, or what stage of business you're at, the responses you get may not be relevant or appropriate to your business - which is a waste of your precious time!

So, if you're:

  • a woman starting and growing a business  
  • not quite ready for private coaching...  

and free online groups are a bit like playing Russian roulette... 

How do you get the support you need to get started and grow your solo business - without spending thousands of dollars?

As a business coach - I hear and see this conflict A LOT!

... so I decided to create something in between private coaching and group support...


giving you the best of both world's...

This is What You've Been Looking for...

It's the fastest and easiest path for you to:

  1. Get support, direction and accountability from an experienced Business Coach
  2. Know what to prioritise, focus on and implement first
  3. Make the most of your time to get things done
  4. And connect with other women also starting and growing their own business...

About Your Coach

I’m a coach, facilitator, speaker and podcast host. I’m also wife to Mick, Fur-mum to Kettu [a Finnish Lapphund] and a passionate advocate for true wellbeing.

I've had leadership roles since my 20’s and worked for a decade in the media industry - I was ‘successful’, but wasn’t very happy…

So I quit and explored my passion for communication and people development…

I’ve been through all the challenges of career change and starting businesses several times…  

Going from self-confessed workaholic, into burnout, and totally reinventing my work life has made me super passionate about working with positive, high achieving women to help them create a successful and profitable business they love, without burning out.

Client Feedback:

Nat Dwyer

“ Helped me believe in the value I had to offer my clients..."

“I was at the beginning of my business journey and knew what I wanted to achieve but wasn’t quite sure on the right way to get there. I had limited time (and expertise) to make it work and start earning the income I needed quickly, so I enlisted Shandra’s expertise to help fast track my journey. 

She gave me the tools, techniques and strategies I needed to speak with confidence about myself and my services. Her advice helped me to convert potential clients into bookings immediately. The coaching program helped me truly define what my offer was, the best way to build it and then present it in a way that would attract my ideal client."

Extremely rewarding  personally and professionally ..."

“After working on my own for a little while I was feeling a bit lonely.

When the opportunity came to join the Women in Transit group I was initially worried I wouldn't gel with the others, but it's a really supportive and fun community that I really needed.

Shandra is the most positive leader you could come across. She's a wealth of knowledge, and a lateral thinker - she will help you find solutions to any business problem and will always believe in you.

I really recommend the Women In Transit group to anyone starting your own thing, or seeking help to achieve the next level in your business. "

More Client Feedback:

“Genuine, approachable, honest - the support is amazing!"

“I was feeling really isolated working for myself and didn’t have a support network that understands the rollercoaster of running your own business and all the things I was going through...

Since joining the group just before Covid hit, I've moved my outdoor fitness sessions across to a virtual platform and run a successful 90 Day Wellness Program. All the women are so genuine, approachable, honest and have the most amazing range of skills to share. 

I'd recommend this program to anyone working solo who is looking for support - with a sense of fun."

“I was burning out and felt dissatisfied..."

 I knew I needed support to navigate this journey and not lose myself and end up back in what was comfortable. 

I was nervous to commit to coaching, but without it I wouldn't have had the confidence to share my new skills in yoga teaching, taking the steps into the unknown to build a platform and just give it a go. 

That achievement wouldn't have been possible without the mindset Shandra instilled of getting curious about what's possible and being curious about where it leads. Without sounding cheesy - it was a little life changing..."
