Welcome to The Business Acceleration CLUB, I am thrilled that you are here

The Business Acceleration Club is everything you need to grow from a small business making a small profit into a properly profitable and easy to manage business which works FOR you and gives you the freedom you thought you were signing up for when you become a business owner.

There are three things for you to get started with.  1. Book yourself in for the weekly coaching sessions so that you get the reminders and the session links. 2. Join the facebook group, this is your support system and I do all sorts of bonus trainings in here. 3. Sign the agreement using the link below before the coaching session.  Don’t worry about exploring any of the courses until we have had our first coaching session [unless you really can’t help yourself :)]

What You Need to Know About the Business Acceleration Club

There is a lot of information in here but I want you to know there is no waffle and nothing which will waste your time. The Business Acceleration Club is a 6-month all in programme including coaching, online courses and live trainings to build your business from medicore success into the business of your dreams.  Once you have this foundation under you, you can then join the exclusive invite only FemPowered Empire Building Programme where you step up the next level again, but now let’s get your business cranking.

Some of the things you will have done before and some things will be completely new to you, but ALL of the tasks are important for your clarity, and clarity is VITAL in order for you to grow your business to the next level. 

The thing is, your mindset and skills are extremely valuable and they got you to this point in your business, that is worth celebrating. To get to the next level in business, you will need an up-levelled mindset and new skills.  Having coached hundreds of people to success coupled with my adult education background means I know exactly what works, and the systems and methods I use have proven successful time and time again, so if you ever feel frustrated with the learning process, lean into that, it means you are about to experience next level growth.

The coaching sessions are where you grow your business skills  and mindset, get individualised assistance to grow your business, set targets, make plans for the week and be held accountable for moving forward (at a pace that you choose) to achieve your overall business goal. These sessions are on Thursday at 9:30am

The courses are where you will gain clarity on your business, hone your marketing messages and get a handle on your business growth. The lessons will be easy for you get through, in fact, you will amazed at how well you can access deep knowledge within yourself and get through the learning to implement kickass strategies in your business. That’s because I have taken all the waffle out and given you everything you need and nothing that you don’t, and I have taken complex high level systems and fine tuned them to work for purpose driven business women just like you.  The content in this programme will lead you to results faster than you are used to. The lessons are comprised of the foundational courses of FemPowered Empire Building and are the creme of creme content that will get you big results, fast. Most lessons will have a short explainer video, then a series of steps to follow and sometimes templates, tools or worksheets for you to download.

I suggest that you do one (or more) of the lessons a week. What has worked for others  is to set aside 1 hour of time 2 mornings (or evenings) a week. Keeping a regular time will afford you a structure that you can rely on, allow time in your schedule, and keep you out of overwhelm and moving ahead.

*If you get stuck, acknowledge any feelings of frustration and move forward. It is kind of like a commitment to exercise – no one REALLY wants to exercise and probably would bail out if they stopped to ask themselves if they felt like exercising today, but we all love the feeling AFTER we have exercised, and we even like doing it once we get started, and we sure as heck want the results. So treat your journey to business success the same way – don’t stop to ask yourself IF you feel like doing it today.  Instead, make a commitment to a rhythm and stick to it.

*You have access to all the modules while you are a member so you can go back and look at these time and time again. I have specifically kept the price of this club low to just cover the group coaching because my philosophy is ‘what is mine is yours’.  Plus I want you to succeed, that is why I am here after all.

*We add new courses, new challenges and new content all the time, so make sure to check in regularly

*Disclaimer – you are going to be triggered on this programme. We dive into some deep stuff, and in all honesty that is where the gold is. The truth is, that we have got to this point in our lives with a certain set of beliefs which have kept us safe and helped us to make sense of the world, and a set of skills which have served us well.  To move forward into the next upgraded, happier, thriving version of ourselves we need some new beliefs to support us and a few new tools in our toolbox. Change will always feel some what uncomfortable. Let’s face it, it would be so much easier to stay the same, but you want to grow, evolve, to help more people, to have a sustainable lifestyle and live a HELL YES LIFE.

The Things You Will Need 

* A facebook account for your business 

* A Google Drive account

* A trello account (not vital to have it right now, we can set it up later on)

*An electronic calendar,  I recommend you use the one associated with your Google Drive and Gmail account (it links to lots of other software systems that we will set you up with later down the track)

* Stationary: a journal, coloured pens, post it notes, highlighters, big paper

*** Important Notice *** Rhythms Are The Key to Success

 

Every successful person you see has a set of rhythms which enable their flow, and makes the success they enjoy look like it comes naturally.  Ask the great women (and men) of success and they will all tell you that FOCUS is the key to achieving your dreams. 

These rhythms are what will afford you focus and therefore, the success you seek.  If you did nothing other than these rhythms you will be WILDLY successful.  In fact, these rhythms have been honed over 25 years and are worth this months subscription fee on their own. The reason I give them to you right up front is that I want you to hit the ground the running. 

Business success does not need to take years! That is a story told by those who struggle against the tide and play by the rules. You darling, are going to break all the rules and follow your heart. You, are going to be wildly successful and insanely happy.

And… I put a little BONUS in the course section for you – Flow Training. 

Honestly, getting into and staying, in flow IS the secret sauce.  100% of my course attendees tell me without a doubt it is the flow and the affirmations that change things up for them and blew the lid on business success.  Trust me, you wanna dive into this. I won’t blow smoke up your jacksie (I am not that kinda gal) you will feel some resistance, I still do, even after 25 years of doing it!  Just know that it is ok to feel resistance, and turn up and do it anyway. Just like brushing your teeth so they don’t fall out, you have to do it and after a while you get to love the clean feeling.

 

Your Courses

Tech Tools & Templates Library

Headline Checker

This handy little tool is super cool.  Oh, look at us rhyming!  

This headline checker lets you enter your planned headline and checks how ‘clickable’ it is. That is, it tells you if it is naff or not. 

Your headline needs to talk to the END RESULT. No body cares about your tools remember, they care about results.

 

Funnels

A funnel It is a ‘receptical’ for your ‘sales’. It takes your potential clients from cold to warm (engaging with your freebie-mafia offer). And then of course onto wanting to work with you (hot).

This is a link to ClickFunnels  however you can buy your own for just $99 (ask me)  but have a scout around ClickFunnels first to get an idea of what they do. 

 

Type Form

This is a snazzy free survey and form maker. It does many things and all of them are quite polished. You can create a free quiz for your website, or do a client satisfaction survey, or create a lead gen form for Facebook.

For creating Client Agreement Forms stick to GoogleForms, but for everything else, this looks really professional.

 

Stripe

An online payment system.  In my opinion, Stripe is the best, it is the most widely accepted, and has the best additional features, for example, you can set up monthly payment plans etc.  Paypal is what I use to process website payments and for everything else I use Stripe.  All payment systems have a fee, but imagine being able to process payments over the phone or out in public with an app on the spot!

Better Proposals

This is a platform which allows you to create a branded online proposal which can be emailed to your clients. It is best suited to industries where a package needs to be tailored to the client and is of high value. You can add videos, testimonials, terms & conditions, contract to sign and payment portals.  It looks like a clickable slideshow and is very sleek and professional. You can have a monthly subscription if you send alot of proposals, or you can purchase a bundle for $100.

User Brain

A very strange name, but a great little tool.  It is a business which pays people to review your website for useability and flow.  Basically, a person (from the general public) which take a video of them reviewing and live commenting on your website.  It is really valuable for completely non-biased feedback.  You might just have to take a concrete pill before you sit down to watch the reviews tho lol.

Sharsies

Not strictly business-related, but this will change the way you view investing and growing your money. Remember everything you do spills over into other areas of your life? Well, taking some risks by investing as little as $5 in shares (the amount does not matter, it is just about having skin in the game which changes your mindset) will help you to get BRAVE.

 

FB Business Manager

If you don’t already have a Facebook Ads account you are going to need one.  It does not matter what you call the account, no one will see the name.  Once you have set up the account, you can follow the additional videos in the Success Hub which show you how to set Facebook Ads and also a Pixel (a little alien code which will track your conversions for ads).

 

Buffer

A social media scheduling system which allows you to post to multiple channels and platforms at one time. This is how I work: I sit down for one hour every week and open up canva for creating graphics, open up pixelbay or similar for free photos, quickly sketch up a plan for content (whatever comes to mind from my work the previous week) and then get busy sheduling on buffer.

 

Teamwork

An organisation system so you can stay on track when working with others  (say a staff member or PA) or an many complex projects.

Teamwork is great, but it is so dependent on your learning style as to what you will prefer. Some other great free systems include Asana and Trello. It is best for you try them out and see what works best for you.

 

Shedul

Client booking system for service-based industries.  It is designed for Beauty Therapists but any service-based industry can use it: chiro; physio; massage; hairdressers; personal trainers.  The trick is… when you set up your services, you have to link it to a type of service, but does not matter which service you link it to, ie you might offer  posture correction but there is no service for that, link it to anything, no one can see.

Acuity

This client booking system is best (in my opinion) for online services such as coaching.  You can use it to book classes or group coaching calls as well as one on one services.I t also has a reminder system  and takes payment for you (when you link it to stripe or paypal).  You can also link it to zoom, and this feature is priceless! it will save you so countless hours.

 

Hubspot

A CRM useful for when you are starting out. There are a number of features but I recommend you start with two things: link your email and your Facebook pixel to this system that way every message you get from Facebook can be tracked unit you convert them. You will need to set up a sales flow in here so you can track your clients through the sales funnel.

 

Zoom

This is the system I use for our live weekly calls.  It is fabulous for that alone, but there is much, much more.  When you have the paid version you can: link it to acuity so when your client’s book zoom sets up an automatic meeting and puts it straight into your google calendar (when you link that to zoom) how cool is that? You can also stream straight to your Facebook page from here and share your screen.

Canva

Canva is amazing!  There are a number of other systems, but this is the easiest and cheapest version. It has so much on offer: free photos; very cheap stock photos (cheaper than I have seen anywhere else); creates e-books; Facebook templates; website banners; insta posts; logos; and so much more I would get bored typing it all out.  If you pay the very nominal fee for the pro version you also get animated posts and videos.

Hot Jar

This allows you to see what people are doing on your website! Yep, no kidding.

It takes a recording of what people are spending time on and what they are not.

Key Words Everywhere

Want to know what keywords are used on another website page?

Here you go… 

Easy Prompter

This is a website version of the teleprompter that news presenters use. You can also get an app version for recording video on your phone.

Answer the Public

This site allows you to type in a topic and see how people are asking questions. This can be useful for deciding what to call blogs or online courses. It gives you an idea of peoples pain points and the terminology they are comfortable with.

Medium

This is a place you can post your blogs. In order for your clients to work with you, they need to know like and trust you, and having your blogs everywhere will surely help with your trust-building.

Google Optimizer

If you have Divi Builder Theme on your WordPress website you can spilt test copy and graphics anyway, but if you don’t… this allows you to do just that.

Otter

An ai which takes your recorded voice and turns it into written words. One of my favourites!  This is the computer version, but there is also an app for your phone which allows you to record while you are out walking, email the transcript to yourself, and post your blog when you get home! How cool is that?

PDF Escape

This allows you to turn a PDF into a typable document!

However, if you want to create a Client Agreement Form, I would recommend you use Google Forms in Google Drive, that way you can send a link and your client responses will be collated automatically for you and stored safely.

Colour Hex Codes

This website allows you to find out the hex code of any colour (the combination of colours like a paint tint) and gives you colours which match and contrast your chosen colour. Great when you are choosing branding colours or trying to make your graphics look suave.

ColorMind

You can take a photo or screenshot of anything including a website and upload it here to find out the hex codes of all the colours used in the pictures. Great for getting your logo to match various things or for picking branding colours.

What To Do If You Are Struggling

Hey darling, 

First up, we are all here for you. There is never any judgement from us. We are all in the same boat, we have all visited overwhelm island, and we have all had life throw us curve balls, and a curve mountain or two.

I want you to take 3 deep belly breaths and tell yourself that strong women ask for help when they need it. 

And then darling, trust that the universe has your back, and remind yourself that what ever you are experiencing right now is happening FOR YOU not to you. 

Ok, hopefully that tamed the lion in your mind and we have you operating from a calm place instead of the fight or flight response.

Now here are some actions that you can take right now.  Start at step one and move your way through the steps.

1. Journal your heart out – if you are still stuck and need assistance move onto step 2.

2. Seek help in the FaceBook Group, we are all here to help you.

3. If you are stucker than chewing gum to a desk then reach out to me personally darling. You can reach me a number of ways:
