Weekend workshop for little biz owners

If you are new in biz, or thinking of starting your own little biz, then this is for YOU!

ARE YOU feeling overwhelmed in biz?

Did you start your biz journey with BIG DREAMS to impact the world… but you are feeling overwhelmed in your biz and those dreams have lost their shine? I totally get it… I created Little Biz Foundations just for you! 

Our Weekend Workshop is a value packed weekend (2 full days) where I lead you through practical, hands-on activities to reignite your passion for your business, with strategies to confidently connect with your customers. 

You will achieve more in two days than many small businesses do in years of running their small business. There’s no fluff, no hype, no get rich quick schemes, no sales pitch and no expensive upsell. Just me and you, some some fellow small biz owners… little biz exercises and strategies, workbooks to record all your bright ideas, and a load of colourful stationery!

What will we cover?

Each session builds on the previous session, Mel has built this workshop to ensure there is plenty of time to work during the sessions. and each session has plenty of hands on practical application.

What you will get

In our value packed hands-on workshop I will take you through several exercises and teach you strategies to:

  • Reconnect you with the reasons why you started your business
  • Discover simple and affordable ideas for marketing your business
  • Discover why people buy from YOU
  • Show you how to make your sales and marketing easy (and reduce the stress and ‘should-do’s’
  • Learn how to tap into your existing skills that will serve you for your whole business journey
  • Discover and document your story, your why and your reason for doing business
  • Learn a simple strategy to turn your dreams into plans… and how to implement them easily
Plus, some hidden bonuses of the Weekend Workshop;
  • Work with fellow small biz owners who are on the same journey as you
  • Renewed confidence to run your business
  • Make some new little biz friends to help you develop your little biz community of like-minded people.

words of praise for mel

“The most helpful to my business was getting to know my vision and purpose for the business. I also enjoyed the coffee, treats and talking to other business owners”
"I loved it. After each workshop I was clearer about specific aspects of my business."
“I started my business 8 months ago, recently I have felt stagnant in growing. Today I learnt and worked on key points I have missed in the start of planning my business. Without these skills and ‘my reasons for where I am’ I would be able to grow. Thank you!”
“It was great. Interactive, enough time to ask questions. Great entry level small biz course”
“I enjoyed the group setting with everyone contributing ideas for each other”
“I like that we fill out the work now, as I probably wouldn’t set time aside otherwise”

Our Weekend Workshop will be held at Quality Resort Sorrento Beach, which has free on-site carparking & WIFI.
