Hey there! I'm Sage Grayson.
I'm a former book editor turned life and business coach, and I help ambitious women edit their habits, routines, and mindsets to balance their happiness at work and home.
I’m a Life Editor . . . and so are you!
Let's connect on social media:

Growing and Thriving

What’s Life Editing?
Life editing is a form of life coaching that follows a specific step-by-step process for cleaning up your life, much like how a book editor would edit a manuscript.
I was a book editor in the publishing world for 10 years before I started my life coaching business in 2011. It was then that I noticed I was using the same techniques to help my clients improve their lives as I did back when I was an editor.
Sometimes our lives can feel like a rough draft.
Our days are jumbled, there doesn’t seem to be a flow, and we’re not living the story of our dreams that’s inside of us.
That’s where life editing comes in.
Step 1: Create a Foundation
Even if your life isn’t perfect, there are things that support you and keep you stable. The good things that are already working for you are called a foundation.
Step 2: Delete Bad Influences
You can’t add in the good things that are missing in your life until you create some room by deleting all the junk. These could be people, situations, or habits that are not adding value to your life.
Step 3: Add Good Habits and Routines
After you’ve deleted the bad influences in your life, you’ll notice you’ll have much more time, space, and energy for all the good things that have been missing. Now you can do the things you’ve always wanted to do but never made the time for, find your ideal career, take care of yourself, and have fun.
Step 4: Rearrange Everything
If your days aren’t going as smoothly as you’d like, you might need to do some adjusting. Just because you have all the components doesn’t mean your life is flowing. Rearranging a few things in your schedule can make all the difference.
Step 5: Make White Space
Personal white space is needed for you to have a place to rest, recharge, and breathe. It’s self-care so you can be physically, mentally, and emotionally prepared to do what you need to do. It’s also a way for you to give yourself a break and do an imperfect job.
Life editing is an ongoing process that you can return to again and again. In fact, I use this framework for my quarterly personal check-ins at the start of every season.
How I Can Help You
Save Time Every Day
My clients are the most productive people I know, and I teach them how to save 2+ hours of time per day so they can focus on their most important goals.
Make Steady, Consistent Changes
There's no overwhelm when you're editing your life! You'll make noticeable changes daily with tiny edits instead of sweeping makeovers.
Start a Business
My specialty is helping women start businesses from scratch by eliminating the confusion and devoting our energy to tasks that get the best results FAST!
My Clients Rock!
Most of my clients have their own businesses or are building them from the ground up with my assistance.
Since I started my business in 2011, I’ve worked with painters, writers, photographers, coaches, healers, fashion consultants, interior designers, jewelry makers, and yes . . . editors.
Some are corporate professionals without their own businesses. Some decided to start businesses and then quit their day jobs. And others love their current jobs and started their own businesses for extra income or vacation money.
Here are some of the wins my clients experienced through life editing:
- Started a business from scratch.
- Got pregnant after years of infertility.

- Cut sugar and gluten from her diet and feels like a million bucks.
- Removed dangerous toxic relatives from her life.
