What to Look for in an Online Business Coach?
When looking for a coach, it’s important that you find someone who is experienced and qualified in both business and personal development.
You want someone who has been around for a while, and has done their inner work.
And, I’d be looking for someone whose values are aligned with yours, as is your worldview.
Besides intangibles, the coach you choose to work with should also provide tangible results. Not just her own but also results she’s helped others achieve.
Here are some questions to ask:
- Has this coach helped others get the results YOU want to achieve?
- Who are her other clients? Are they similar to who you are and what you want?
- And what kind of tactics do you see her using in her own business? (and are they aligned with your values?)
- Is her business successful? (however YOU define success)
- Has she been where you are today and can she relate to you?
I Work with Quietly Rebellious Heart-Centered Entrepreneurs
Particularly those in service-based industries such as coaching, creative arts, healing, counseling, and education.
My clients want to create an online business that reflects their unique personality, values, and goals. For many, this means seeking more freedom, work-life balance, and joy in their work. They are not big fans of the 6- or 7-figure business hype!
I understand that being true to oneself in business is essential, especially for those who identify as highly sensitive, neurodivergent, or introverted.
My goal is to help you create a sustainable and fulfilling humane business that aligns with your personal values and supports your well-being.
Who Am I?
Hi there, I’m Sarah Santacroce.
I founded my first Online Business in 2007 and have grown up in this Online Marketing World.
I have taken countless marketing programs myself and therefore know what’s available to entrepreneurs. The majority of these programs sell a cookie-cutter approach, based on the founder’s success recipe. I have followed the evolution of Online Marketing and I’m sure that the current Marketing Paradigm contributes to an ever increasing level of anxiety on a global level.
In 2018 (yes, it took me a while!!) I came to realize that I no longer wanted to follow everyone else’s model – EVEN IF it worked to some extent. Yes, it helped me hit the famous six figures, but it also left me drained and unfulfilled. I was ready to take the risk and give myself permission to do business and marketing my way – EVEN IF that meant that I’d fail the first few times.
In the past 14 years I have talked to hundreds of entrepreneurs and 90% of them mention that marketing makes them anxious. And it’s not only their own marketing activities. It’s also the use of fear, urgency & manipulation in everyone else’s marketing that we are exposed to that make us feel less than and anxious.
Today I see it as my mission to help heart-centered entrepreneurs like you to be gentle, authentic AND successful in your marketing and online business. And therefore not only create sustainability for yourself, but also contribute to make this world a better place by reducing the global level of anxiety and fear.
And yes, I consider myself successful. I can say that in all humility, because I no longer measure success by the number of LinkedIn connections, views or the number of zeros in my revenue. I measure it in impact and the difference I have made over the years with my one-on-one clients, online courses, The Humane Marketing podcast and more recently with the ‘Marketing Like We’re Human‘ and the ‘Selling Like We’re Human‘ books.
When I’ve finally taken off the mask and stopped following all the marketing guru’s advice, I found joy and ease! And I fell in love with marketing all over again! And that’s what I want for you too! Helping you find those marketing activities that are aligned with your values, with your worldview and your unique & holistic Marketing Super Power.
This is my vision for the future:
- A world where joy, empathy, and kindness are the currency
- A world where marketing fosters a sense of belonging, not isolation
- A world that focuses on the human(e) connection (while using modern technology)
- A world where entrepreneurs who use ethical marketing are the ones that not only make the biggest impact but also make the most money
I have 15+ years of experience in the fields of marketing, entrepreneurship, coaching, online business creation, and strategy and have been facilitating, training, and holding space with in-person and online groups (1 – 100 people from all over the world) since 2010. I’m trained in the ‘Art of Holding Space‘ as well as ‘The Art of Participatory Leadership‘.
In my two books ‘Marketing Like We’re Human’ and ‘Selling Like We’re Human’ I share very personal stories of the deep transformation I have gone through over the last decade and that led me to found the Humane Marketing Revolution.
Are We a Good Fit?
I do my best work with deep thinkers, solution creators, sensitives and other misfits who are ready to roll back their sleeves and take action.
I’m excited when I get to help you create your life’s work, whether that is a brand new business, or a remodeling of an existing business. Most likely I’m not your first business coach though.

I only ever work with 3 clients at a time in order to manage my energy and give you my full attention.
All my past clients are now good friends.
