Hey, it's Trudy here.
When I first started my own business, I didn't want to admit it, but I was lost!
There were so many things I had to learn ... and do ... that it felt like I had to be "Chief Everything". You know, the CEO, the CIO, the CFO? You name it, that was me trying to learn how to do everything at once.
But the hardest thing was choosing exactly what clients I should focus on. There were so many people I wanted to help and in so many different ways, that I couldn't choose between them.
As a consequence I floundered for months, going this direction and then that direction. Swinging in the wind, really.
It was confusing for me and even more confusing for my potential clients.
It wasn't until I got involved with a couple of business support networks, that I finally got clarity on what I wanted my business to be about.
Another thing that held me back were the negative voices telling me I was either wasting my time trying to build a business, not meeting expectations or doing it all wrong.
Some of those voices came from other people.
But some of those negative thoughts were my own. In fact, sometimes I would talk myself out of doing things I could have done, but was secretly afraid to ... like pricing my services too low because I was afraid people would think it (I) wasn't worth it.
Once again, it was only through becoming part of a community of supportive people who pulled me up and made me face my fears, that I started to truly build the business I wanted to build.
So I decided I wanted to help people the same way. I wanted to set up a community of people who are trying to achieve something big ... that will help others AND themselves. So I did.
ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY
This community is a private membership-based mastermind group for women and men who have big dreams, but are facing challenges in their business or career. You know what you want to achieve, but you don't necessarily always know how to get there. Or those voices in your life (or your head) are telling you it's not possible and you know you need other people to help you shut those voices out and prove them wrong.
Our Launch Pad community is dedicated to collaborating with and supporting each other as we learn, share and earn our way to success in our individual businesses or careers. If you are the sort of person who believes you get out what you put in, then this is the community for you. Join us today!
THE BENEFITS OF BEING PART OF OUR COMMUNITY
We have regular fortnightly accountability and training meetings.
We also have a variety of useful thinking frameworks and mini-tutorials to help you figure out what to do next if you're stuck.
Plus you have quick access to the experts in our networks, mine included, and that, just by itself, is worth far more than the monthly membership fee, which...to use an old cliche...is equivalent to 1 "caffeine buzz" per day. Or a sweet pastry :-)
1 coffee per day costs...what...4 or 5 dollars? But you know what's priceless? The opportunity to experience the support that all of our members can give.
COME JOIN US!
We'd love to have you on board.
If you've already started a business, want to start a business or you need help figuring out how to deal with the challenges in your career, you've come to the right place.
As facilitator of the community, I have had years of experience coaching and mentoring people, both in their careers and in getting started as entrepreneurs.
Most importantly of all, I've done the hard yards in building my own company and I specialise in teaching people how to set up their business and grow it online.
So...if you're interested in setting up YOUR own business, be it online, bricks and mortar or a consulting business, this is the right community for you.

"I want to share my excitement! After my biz coaching session with Trudy, I was so inspired by the ideas, and the strategy that I put it out to the following I’m slowly building @in.the.ra on instagram. And the response has been AMAZING! Their enthusiasm is exciting, can’t wait to put this community together!" -- Jess A.
