Little Biz Foundations


It has been a dream of mine for a while to launch a membership for those starting a new little biz, and for those who need practical assistance to grow their own small business. 

The wait is finally over!! I’m so excited to let you know that Little Biz Growth Academy will be fully live and operational on 1st January 2024. It is a 12 month membership that will give you resources, tools and tutorials on starting a business (for those who are yet to start their little biz) as well as all the practical marketing and growth strategies you need to grow your biz in 2024! We even have monthly Q&A sessions & a private Facebook Group. 

Hey there, I’m Mel!

Welcome to Little Biz, where I add a dash of pizzazz to small and micro businesses, helping them grow with confidence (and a bit of sass..). I’ve spent countless hours with fellow business owners, and let me tell you, most of us are pretty similar!

Launching your own business takes a bold leap of faith, whether it’s a side hustle or a money-making extravaganza. But the secret ingredient is dedicating time and TLC to your biz – the ultimate recipe for GROWTH!

Once you make a commitment to grow, and take those action steps in the right direction, anything you do from here will be growth in you or your business. One of my passions is to encourage small biz owners to take their own growth journey, and to share about my own small business journey with authenticity.

Nowadays, here at Little Biz I’m mostly about crafting and managing WordPress Websites. I saw too many small businesses being held hostage by monstrous website bills, only to be left stranded in the no-man’s-land of the online realm. In 2019 I decided to shake things up and make my mark on the industry by doing things differently, one website at a time.

I’ve created a series of small business workshops called Little Biz Foundations. These modules are small business marketing foundations to turbocharge small businesses to new heights.

I’ve been in the little biz game since 2012, and I know firsthand that finding help and education can feel like searching for a unicorn when resources seem to be a minefield littered with self-promoted guru’s and false promises. If you’re craving some entrepreneurial enlightenment from a gal who has walked the walk and talks the talk, make sure to hop on board our new membership Little Biz Growth Academy

Here’s the deal in my opinion: when small businesses thrive, their local communities thrive too! Little Biz has a grand mission to spread prosperity far and wide. Check out our Small Business Focus to get a taste of our impact.

Oh, and make sure you snoop around our blog, Little Biz Hints & Tips, for some great insights on small business and also all things websites. Trust me, some of these blogs are pure gold! If you want even more Little Biz goodness, head over to our Resources & Recommendations where you can discover what platforms and services we recommend for small businesses.

We’re everywhere – Facebook, Insta, you name it! Plus, sign up at the bottom of this page to get our hints & tips delivered straight to your inbox via our newsletter (don’t worry, we don’t sell your info, coz that is icky!)

Build your business foundations with Little Biz Foundations course


Have you been running your little biz for a while and don’t seem to getting any traction in the business? Perhaps you are spraying your marketing messaging around like a high-impact sprinkler just hoping someone will get a little drop of your marketing? 

In our Little Biz Foundations course, we go right back to your business foundations and start building from the ground up. Perhaps you jumped into running your biz without thinking about who your target audience is, or maybe you did, but you have grown and matured in your business and that target market no longer aligns with your service offerings.

Is it time to take the next step in your business journey and go back to basics?


Combining all of our Little Biz Foundations Workshops into one intensive weekend.

This is for small and micro businesses who jumped into starting a business and hit the ground running in the practical side of their business, but haven’t taken the time to document their biz foundations.

This is for small biz owners who feel they have a hose turned on full flow with the shower spray nozzle trying to catch anyone in their marketing shower, but really need a way to turn down the pressure and switch to a precision nozzle.

We go through 5 workshops in one weekend – starting with YOU and your biz, and ending with a super easy system for planning to grow in your biz.
