The Unicorn Assistant

Business Coaching


This is how you’ll feel when you get help that ACTUALLY makes a difference in your business!

You get hands-on business coaching, unicorn style.

Not just a 1 hour skype call once a week or once a month.

You get the 1:1 coaching that is 100% individually customised to suit your exact needs


I work with you to put it all in place 5-15 hours a week. It’s all about the implementation baby!

This is a total game changer

If you are a small start-up, or just needing business coaching and advice for an established business, time with Sue is priceless.

She has had her own successful businesses so speaks with knowledge and experience, not just reading from a 'how-to' business manual.

She quickly identifies what will be the key issues for you and your business, and then breaks it down into small, manageable pieces. It will be the best investment you can make for your business, no matter how big or small.

Business Consulting Testimonial from Maree Gregory of Aussie Man Hands, describing how she loves working with Sue McLachlan
The Unicorn Assistant is an Online Business Manager and Executive Virtual Assistant to help Entrepreneurs, Solopreneurs and Small Business owners get their life back

Creating and running a business is one of the most exhilarating things you can ever do!


Passion for what you’re doing consumes you and you live and breathe your business. You are living the entrepreneurial dream, bringing an amazing business to life!

In the beginning, you don’t even notice the 16 hour days and 7 day weeks. It’s all too exciting, you are getting shit done! You’re growing a business baby!

Bit by bit though, the high that sustained you in the beginning starts to wear off.

Your business is still growing. In fact in might be on an almost frightening growth trajectory and blown past all your initial goals. Your sights are set on bigger and better things. Perhaps even becoming the next start up unicorn…



After far too long burning the candle at both ends, you’re starting to notice, you’re actually pretty damn tired. Those late nights and early starts are catching up with you.

Maybe your family or friends are starting to forget what you look like?

You feel a little guilty about that, but there is so freakin much to do every day! You feel a bit like a frazzled new parent trying to juggle countless competing and very demanding! needs.

(Oh and trying to remain sane at the same time.)


Your phone keeps buzzing at you. The endless task list makes your stomach churn when you look at it. Let alone when you try to prioritise which of the 18 urgent and critical tasks should be completed first.

How are you going to do this all on your own? Should you be doing that anyway!?


If only you could clone yourself

A clone! Oh the bliss…

You imagine what it would be like to have someone you can trust to take the crappy time consuming tasks off your plate!

The things that seem to stress you out or you just put off altogether because you can’t be bothered or it all just seems too hard - even though you know that will come back to bite you later.


As you think about what it would be like if clone you could take over for a bit, you start daydreaming of a weekend off.

Like a whole weekend!

With a sleep in even, or maybe a relaxing yoga class… perhaps watching a movie!

You could go for a swim at the beach… maybe even a lazy Sunday brunch at your fav cafe or (shock!) a quick holiday and get away from everything…


Yes, you absolutely need another you!

If only you could find someone who actually understands what you need and how to make things better. Someone who could lift the weight off your shoulders and let you focus on the stuff you love. Someone who would actually make things better. And fast!

But finding someone like that, would be like finding a unicorn, a mythical creature you wonder if even exists…


Well it is your lucky day.

unicOrns are real!


Hey, I’m Sue and I’m here to make your life better!

You’ve found the rare and elusive business advisor + assistant who gets to know you and your company so well, you wonder how you ever did without them.

Someone who exceeds your expectations by a mile and thinks of (and deals with) things before you even knew it was an issue.

A person who can see so far outside the box, the box no longer exists!

I’m your unicorn

take a giant leap forward with the help of an online business manager


A Bit About Me

Not only am I an Online Business Manager (OBM) and Business Advisor, I’ve been you!


I’ve been in your shoes and understand like few people can, what it is actually like being an entrepreneur who is doing big things.


I bootstrapped my own start up in 2005 literally from my dining room table. That little hobby business become a multi million dollar, multi national company within 4 years.


I grew from solopreneur to CEO managing 18 staff with production outsourced in China and offices in three countries. We even won some pretty prestigious awards like NSW Small Business Exporter of the Year in 2011. To say I learned a lot in that time is the craziest understatement.


That experience gives me unique insight into what a busy solopreneur or start up director needs. What assistance and management help, will actually make an impact for you. I’ve hired (and fired) staff. I’ve worked with assistants both virtual and in the office with me and know how they were able to help me - and what didn’t really help at all.


I’ve been down the frustrating path of getting a cheap VA in the Philippines, only to end up taking months to train someone how to do simple tasks. Worse, when you end up having to redo the work on what’s now become a crazy tight deadline, because it’s just not up to scratch!


I have a passion for working with entrepreneurs, solopreneurs and small business owners. I love sharing my knowledge and skills to help businesses thrive and grow!


Plus! I have over 10 years experience in the corporate world as an Office Manager and Executive Assistant.
