Look I get it. Starting a business is scary. You may have been watching other entrepreneurs from the sidelines for a while, and wishing you could do it too.
Perhaps you've just finished my Career Clarity Programme and decided that you're ready to enter the world of entrepreneurship but aren't sure what your winning business idea could be.
Or you've a got a few ideas, but no idea clue which one could actually become a genuine, viable business which pays the bills!
Well my 6 week Business Launchpad Programme is going to take the guesswork out of it and offer you a clear blueprint for creating a purpose driven business that you can run from anywhere.
Which usually means it’s a service based business (think freelancing, consulting, coaching, teaching, writing, designing, photography, health & wellness etc).
The steps I teach can be fitted around your 9 to 5, and will allow you to test out your business idea(s), start to build your following and create income before you quit your job.

What we can’t do? If you're totally unclear about what to do next, or whether entrepreneurship is even for you, then take a look at my Career Clarity Programme which will help you get unstuck and explore new career options which fit you like a glove.
WHY WORK WITH ME?
I’m a practical girl
I understand that you’ve got a lot going on, and want to see results fast. That’s why we’ll break everything down into clear, actionable steps that you can implement right from the first session
I’m not afraid to ask some tough questions (but in the nicest possible way!)
You might be wondering why you’ve been stuck for a long time and haven’t been able to make much progress your own. The answer is that there are probably a backlog of fears, negative beliefs and behaviours that you’ve learned over time and which are holding you back. The great news is that a learned behaviour can be un-learned! Together we’ll take some time to go deeper and unpick those issues that have been slowing you down, and help you move forward.
I value your time and resources
I know that investing in coaching is a big decision, and my sessions will be jam packed with powerful coaching tools and techniques, valuable resources and inspiration. My coaching programme will also stop you wasting any more time and fast-forward you into the life and business you’ve always wanted.
I don’t believe in burnout
Whilst we’re working together and figuring out what your new business will look like, I know that you’ll be juggling lots of other demands and responsibilities as well. Which is why we’ll build in healthy habits and practices to help you manage your time, avoid overwhelm and keep your life in balance.
I want to see you succeed
I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to feel stuck, miserable, frustrated and exhausted, wondering why life hasn’t turned out the way I’d hoped but not knowing how to change it. Hiring my own coach helped me aim higher and think bigger than I ever thought possible, and I want the same for you too.
(or two monthly payments of £329)
Remember that by working with a mentor who has already been in your shoes and can teach you the necessary steps, you are saving hundreds of pounds and hours of your time, rather trying to play the business guessing game and wing it on your own.
What if I don’t know what my business is yet?
No problem. In the first two modules of this programme, we look in detail at WHO you ideally want to work with, and HOW you can help them with your unique strengths and skills. I also share my strategies for testing out your fledgling business idea(s) to make sure that you hit that sweet spot between what you love, what your customers need, and what they're willing to pay for.
When will I start making money?
Everyone's business is different, and it will depend on how much time and passion you can devote to your business. It's definitely possible to launch it alongside your full time 9 to 5 and build up a customer base first, or put in place a 'bridge job' scenario such as going part time, or taking on contract work, or even moving to a less demanding 9 to 5. Or you might jump in straightaway because you have savings or your partner can support you for a while. There are so many different financial scenarios, which we can look at together, and I will be giving you plenty of tried and tested strategies for finding clients and building up your mailing list and social media following.
How much extra will I have to invest to get my business going?
I'll be showing you cost effective ways to start and grow your business which you can do entirely yourself, if you want to keep your budget low. However you will also get extra tech support from my own online business and tech strategist, Kim Heintz. Kim is my go-to tech guru and I'll be giving you FREE access to her videos tutorials (worth over £150) where she takes you step by step through how to set up Facebook ads, create your website in Squarespace, design effective landing pages and much more.
Will it work?
I know from working with previous clients how powerful this coaching programme is, and I'm here to support you every step of the way. But, and this is key, I can't do the work for you. If you feel strongly that now is the time to make some changes and finally create your dream business and life, then that motivation will carry you past any fears and excuses, and you will do the work that's needed to make it happen and see the results you want.
What if I don’t have the money right now?
That is a completely understandable concern, and one to think about carefully. Investing in yourself and your future can be scary. What I would say is, think about what your life will look like in 6 months if you don't invest in yourself now. Or in a year. Or in 5 years. Will anything have changed? Or will you be stuck in the same rut? The value of this programme doesn't just last six weeks, you'll experience the benefits for months and years to come. But starting a business does require guts, and resourcefulness. If you're just not ready to take the leap right now, then that's totally ok.
How much support do I get?
We'll get together for our one to one, phone or Skype session every week for 6 weeks, and you'll be able to email me for extra support in between. We'll also stay connected via the The Happy Careers Club Facebook group, where you can continue to get support and inspiration from me and your fellow aspiring entrepreneurs, after the programme is over.
How much time will the programme take?
Our calls are 45 minutes long, and I would suggest setting aside an hour or two a week to go through your workbook, for example at the weekend. Don't worry if you can't complete the workbook each week, we can go at your own pace and set you up with time management tools and structures to avoid overwhelm.
How do I pay?
I will send you a link to my payment page where you have the option of paying in full, or choosing the instalment option which will take the first payment there and then, and then one more automated payment a month later. I use Paypal, which makes online payments quick and easy.
What if I can’t make one of our scheduled calls?
When we first get started, we'll agree a mutually convenient time each week for our calls. However, if something comes up and you can't make it, just give me 24 hrs notice and we can always move the call. Do consider scheduling our regular calls into your diary and prioritising them, just like you would for a gym session or an evening class. It's time to put you and your dreams first.
YES I'M IN! SO WHAT DO WE DO NOW?
Fantastic! Then get in touch below for a free, 15 minute clarity call.
You can ask me anything you like about how coaching works, see if we’re a good fit, and chat more about how to get your business off the ground.
Then if you’re ready to get started, we'll get you signed up and you’ll receive your welcome pack.
We’ll agree a regular weekly slot for our calls and get your first session booked in.
Can’t wait to begin this entrepreneurial journey with you!
