Over the last ten years we’ve talked to a lot of business owners. Most are looking for similar things: more freedom, more predictable income and more time to focus on the work that they love.
But the same boggy patches keep getting in the way:
- We get so caught up in the ‘doing’ that we don’t get the chance for proper planning and reflection
- We don't have a clear plan for growth - OR we know what we want, but we keep hitting uncertainty about how to get there
- We're overwhelmed by the never-ending demands of marketing. Or we engage inspurts of activity, followed by long periods of... nothing. Or we don't know what to write. Or we find ourselves “ just putting something out there” and hoping it works :)
Northstar:Grow has been designed specifically to tackle these boggy patches, right where they hurt!
Each session will give you a clear plan of what to focus on, actionable tasks for the next three months, and a clear-minded, intentional approach to your marketing and growth.
Northstar:Grow is a 12-month, transformative mastermind-style program for small businesses in growth stage.
No fluff. No videos. No expensive online courses gathering dust. Just one purposeful, live session each month, supporting you to make giant leaps in your business growth, brand awareness and marketing.
