AUGUST 16 & 17, 2019


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? Because during the last 5 years, I’ve been working with a fantastic group of entrepreneurs and business leaders in our ACCELERATE and STELLAR business building programs, taking them from ordinary to extraordinary, from fear and doubt to clarity and confidence – and from surviving to thriving, success and scale.

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

I created our ACCELERATE & STELLAR business building programs 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 our unique Business Acceleration Model with its 9 Growth Accelerators that we teach in our ACCELERATE & STELLAR programs and how you can use it to build a thriving business based on more income, more impact and more freedom.

In less than one year working with Vanessa, I added almost 250K in new revenue. End of this year we are on track to double our revenues. Also chosen as lawyer of the year in Colorado 2017!

Our goal is to help you THRIVE in your business by earning more income, making a bigger impact, and enjoying greater freedom. | The Business Breakthrough Event

Fired 90% of my business last October and have fully replaced it with few higher paying clients where we get to do more for them. Within a year my revenue is up 93% but more important, are the changes in my business in general.

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 ACCELERATE and STELLAR 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’ll work on….


  • Upleveling your mindset from “solopreneur” to the Empowered Leader in your business.
    • How to identify and target your “Champagne Clients”.
    • How to develop and articulate your Powerful Promise that addresses your Champagne Clients’ needs.

    • How to attract the right kind of clients through Masterful Marketing and turn prospects into clients.
    • How to have structured sales conversations resulting in Elegant Conversions.
    • How to use the Profit Maximizer to generate the most income with less hours of work.

    • How delivering a Premium Experience for your clients sets you apart from the competition.
    • How to build a Rockstar Team.
    • Setting up Smart Systems that scale and give you more freedom.

    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 Standard Ticket for only $97 or a VIP Ticket for only $197 to participate in our 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 the 2nd day.

    Come and dedicate 2 days to learning how to grow your business and apply it immediately.

    What’s the catch? Let me be absolutely transparent.

    I only run a few of these BUSINESS BREAKTHROUGH INTENSIVES a year to raise awareness of our business coaching programs and I promise that we won’t be trying to “sell you” into anything. If you love what I’m teaching over the 2 days and you want to know more about joining one of our programs or working with us, then we’ll be more than happy to discuss that with you and whether it’s the right fit for both of us (we’re highly protective of our very special community of business owners and entrepreneurs).

    If nothing else, I guarantee you’ll walk away from the weekend with a great workbook, lots of notes, and a ton of value from our two days together that you can implement immediately in your business. So what have you got to lose?

    Note however, we do have limited availability of seats for this workshop so if you are interested in participating, please register as soon as possible and avoid disappointment.

    I broke though my own financial glass ceiling and generated more revenue from my own company and my own work, than the most I made working for a big corporation. Now, I have a lot of confidence in my ability to generate whatever I want and be successful at it.  There are no limits and no boundaries now.

    Hear what others have to say | The Business Breakthrough Event

    I added $140,000 in new revenue in the first 12 months after working with Vanessa.

    – Ruth Urban,


    Doubled business since working with Vanessa, spent 10 days in Italy with my husband and the business still grew. What’s most important is that I’m pursuing my mission offering a kinder, gentler, more affordable process for divorce and training other professionals nationwide who have the same mission.
