Choosing a platform to build your website on
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!! 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! We even have monthly Q&A sessions & a private Facebook Group. 

Welcome to Little Biz!

My name is Melissa, and I am super excited that you have found your way to Little Biz! I am a WordPress Web Designer & Small Business Mentor, and absolutely love specialising in the small business space. I love to have fun and bring a touch of cheekiness into my everyday business life.

I started my own small business in 2012 from scratch, and 12 years later, I have another couple of businesses in repertoire, including this one! I was multi-passionate back when the world was telling everyone to focus on just one thing & niching down. In April 2021 Hubby and I added another biz to the mix, a trade biz for my husband to run with. And I do it all [mostly] within school hours!

I was super excited to be selected as one of the expert consultants for the ASBAS Digital Solutions program with Business Foundations. I currently do consulting sessions for the ASBAS program as a WordPress expert & also in basic SEO guidance. 

I love to share my knowledge and experience to encourage those dreaming of starting a small business to step out in faith and do it, as well as helping small businesses to grow. I also love the process of creating WordPress websites that showcase the personality of my clients & their brand.


One of my biggest passions is to help grow local businesses, which in turn grows local community. Practically, this looks like WordPress website assistance, WordPress website redesigns & new WordPress website builds. I also offer remote technical services, basic SEO assistance, one-on-one consulting sessions, workshops & speaking. And, the cherry on the top, is my membership Little Biz Growth Academy, where I can share my knowledge and training in a super affordable way for start-up’s and small businesses.

I absolutely love building new websites where I can bring my clients website vision to life, whilst showcasing their amazing business and talents. When building websites I use best practices for ensuring a great user experience for their website visitors. This includes an easy to follow journey for their website visitors and easy navigation, with many calls to action’s across the website, to encourage their website visitors to make the next step on their client journey with our client. 

All our websites at Little Biz are built using a drag and drop builder on a lightweight theme, and we give you full admin access to your website once it has been completed along with access to our vault of training videos, so you can update your website yourself. When you pay for your website with Little Biz, it is your asset and you should be able to do what you want with your website. We don’t believe in holding your website ransom… 

Discover how we can create your new business website, from 1 page websites through to a major website transformation, we would love to work with you to help your business shine online! 


It can be ridiculously frustrating when your website is not behaving like it should… or when you can’t work out how to fix that issue that is driving you crazy!! Maybe you are wanting to learn how to manage your website yourself, but not sure where to start or what to do?

We are here to assist WordPress Website owners take charge of their own websites, whether you are DIY-ing your website build, have had your site built and handed over to you by a web designer, or if your web designer has gone MIA and you have no clue what you are doing. 

Along with logging in and doing website assistance for clients, we are also happy to sit down with our clients and teach them how to use their websites and maintain their websites themselves so they do not need to rely on anyone else to manage their website.

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.
