The Business Breakthrough Intensive |


JUNE 8 & 9, 2018


Here’s why I’m running this Workshop…

Hi, I’m Vanessa Shaw.

My goal with the BUSINESS BREAKTHROUGH INTENSIVE is to show you (side-by-side with me in this small interactive workshop) how to design (or redesign) a business that allows you to dramatically increase your income, to do the work you love – when and where you want to – and that gets your clients fabulous results.

Why would you want to join me at this event? Because during the last 5 years, I’ve been working with a fantastic group of entrepreneurs and business leaders in our BOUTIQUE BUSINESS SCHOOL, taking them from ordinary to extraordinary, from fear and doubt to clarity and confidence – and from surviving to stability, success and scale.

Hear the results they’re getting in their very own words.

I created the BOUTIQUE BUSINESS SCHOOL because…

  • Too many business owners and entrepreneurs hit an income ceiling, and never make the kind of money (or the kind of impact) that they are capable of. They get stuck at just getting by, being ordinary or settling for less when deep down inside they know they are capable of so much more.
  • Most entrepreneurs then blame themselves, try to change their mindset or get tempted by the next shiny object that promises them a quick fix in 3 simple steps! But nothing changes because it’s not just one thing that’s the problem. It’s a combination of having the right mindset, the right model, and the right strategies in place to be able to maximize your efforts and expertise.
  • Many of you are trying to do far too much in their small business and getting completely overwhelmed and scattered as a result. You may not realize that less is more and it’s not about attracting more clients into your business but rather attracting the right kind of clients for you who will happily pay premium prices.

How can I help? I’m going to be sharing the very best of what is working for my clients in this BUSINESS BREAKTHROUGH INTENSIVE.


You went into business because you wanted to make a difference in the world – you wanted more freedom, more meaning and more money yet you now find yourself working harder than ever, feeling trapped and not seeing the kind of results you’d like to see in your bank account.

It’s frustrating because you know you could do so much more but you lack a plan to get you there. You don’t know exactly where to start and you’re not sure where to focus your best efforts. It’s tough when you’re trying to figure it all out by yourself and it’s a lot easier when you can lean into somebody who’s already walked the path before you and knows the best route to getting you there quicker.

At THE BUSINESS BREAKTHROUGH INTENSIVE, we’ll do a 2-day quick dive into the 9 elements of our BOUTIQUE BUSINESS MODEL and how to use it to design or redesign your business.

Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules, and build a life you’re proud to live.

Build a business and life you love

Three times a year behind closed doors, our clients meet up face-to-face as part of our BOUTIQUE BUSINESS SCHOOL programs.

We don’t just teach them more information. We actively transform their mindset, their leadership, their business and ultimately their life.

It’s 2 days focused on lasting transformation.

Together we work on….

  • Leveraged programs and services that help them break free from trading time for money and enjoy more freedom and fun in their business…
    • Income breakthrough and cash-flow strategies
    • Expert marketing to grow their reach and build their authority and “business celebrity”
    • Lucrative conversion events that turn prospects into clients.
    • How to position their business to gain The High-End Advantage™
    • The Energy of Sales™
    • Upleveling their mindset from “solopreneur” to empowered CEO business leader
    • Overcoming self-sabotage
    • Setting up systems that scale and liberate
    • Embodied leadership

    These 2-day trainings are usually only available to our clients …until now.

    I decided to create these 2-day BUSINESS BREAKTHROUGH INTENSIVES to share what we teach inside our programs.

    Our clients happily invest five figures to have access to these 2-day trainings like this with me.

    But I realize that we’ve only just met and you hardly know me – so I want to make it easy for us to meet and work together the first time.

    That’s why I’m offering you either a Free Standard Ticket or a VIP Ticket for only $97 to participate in the 2-day BUSINESS BREAKTHROUGH INTENSIVE. The VIP Ticket includes gourmet lunches on both days as well as a private breakfast with Vanessa and her team on Sunday morning.

    Come and learn and apply it immediately to your business.

    Let me be absolutely transparent.

    I only run a few of these BUSINESS BREAKTHROUGH INTENSIVES a year to raise awareness of our programs in the BOUTIQUE BUSINESS SCHOOL.

    I promise that we won’t be trying to “sell you” into something. If you love what I’m teaching over the 2 days and you want to know more about joining one of our programs, then we’ll be more than happy to discuss that with you and whether it’s the right fit for you. If nothing else, I guarantee you’ll walk away from the weekend with a ton of value from our two days together that you can implement immediately in your business.

    However, we do have limited availability of seats to this training to respect the “boutique” nature of these kinds of events so if you are interested, please check availability now.

    If you don’t build your dream, someone will hire you to help build theirs.
