Our Business Growth Academy programs are only for serious entrepreneurs and business leaders seeking high quality, integrity and honesty in business coaching and mentoring. We pride ourselves on fostering a highly supportive community of fellow entrepreneurs and business owners.
Our Focus Areas
We only work with entrepreneurs who understand that building a successful business requires personal growth and a dedication to unleashing the best version of themselves. Our business philosophy is based on transformation of our clients’ expertise in 3 core areas:
- Business Strategy
- Personal Leadership
- Money Mastery
Learning to excel in each of these areas can dramatically transform your business, your life and accelerate your income.
If you’re like me or many of my clients, you haven’t attended a fancy business school or received in-depth training on how to grow and sustain a lucrative business. With so much conflicting information readily available combined with the temptation of quick-fix promises, it’s tough to know what to implement and who to follow. Choosing the right direction for your business can quickly become confusing and overwhelming.
The secret is in knowing what to focus on depending on the level of business you’re at. There are some foundational elements that every business must learn and master.
- Clarifying your ideal client profile
- Knowing the value of the services you provide
- Packaging and promoting your services
- Creating a simple and consistent marketing plan
- Having a system for generating new leads
- Focus on income generating activities
- Mastering sales conversations
- Building your Dream Team
- Excellent customer service
Our teachings are based on sound practical business strategies that are tried and tested, easy to implement and work!
Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
– Marianne Williamson
An exciting vision combined with understanding your deeper “why” and a willingness to do what it takes is key to success in any endeavor.
Who you become is just as important (if not more) that what you ultimately achieve. Growing a successful business is like completing your own Masters degree in personal development. It will challenge you to your limits. There’ll be times when you’ll question if it’s really worth it and you’ll have to be prepared to dig deep into your inner resources and determination to stay the course. But the ultimate rewards are so worth it that you’ll keep coming back for more!
You’ll need to understand yourself, know what’s holding you back and break through your own areas of resistance in order to succeed. You have to be willing to change who you are and how you’re approaching life and business if you’re seeking a lasting transformation rather than a quick fix.
Leaders take full responsibility for their mistakes and their results which empowers them to be able to create a business and lifestyle they truly desire. They are prepared to honestly look at what’s not working and invest time, energy and money to make it work.
Leaders thrive on change, constant and never-ending improvement and challenging themselves and others to step outside their comfort zones. Leaders also know that success is never achieved alone – they constantly surround themselves with coaches, peers and the right team to achieve their goals rapidly.
True leaders aspire to much higher standards than others, are committed to their own personal growth and want to make a positive impact in the world they live in.
True leaders have the ability to create a future that is distinctly different from their past.

There’s a lot being said about adopting a positive money mindset to manifest your millions and if it was truly that simple, we’d see a lot more millionaires and a lot less struggle around money!
Money Mastery is so much more. Mindset alone will never make you rich!
We all have a very unique relationship with money which has its inherent strengths and weaknesses. I call this your Money Personality and it directly influences your ability to generate and keep more money. You also need to understand your unique Money Story and how that is still playing out in your life and business today (and believe me it is!). Not knowing how your own relationship with money is affecting your business is a head in the sand approach that will ultimately lead to a lot of heartache and stress.
Have you ever wondered why you seem to be working so hard, you think you’re doing all the right things and yet you still aren’t generating the income you desire? And it’s honestly not your fault. You see few of us have been taught how to make money. In fact many of us have been taught that talking about money is rude, impolite or bad in some way. So it’s hardly surprising that we try to avoid it.
Your relationship with money is an undercurrent that is always playing out below the surface of your life and business and it needs to be paid attention to if you want to stop the stress and struggle with money and start making more money for all the right reasons.
Embodying Money Mastery enables you to:
- address the key numbers in your business with confidence
- know exactly what activities to focus on to generate more income
- overcome the key money stumbling blocks that hold other business owners back
- elegantly address money concerns and conversations
- authentically embody a 6 or 7 figure mindset
- be empowered in any money situation
- generate fabulous income AND make a difference
