Women Unlimited Business Clubs

At Women Unlimited we get the trials and tribulations of running your own business because we’ve been there too (and hey, still are going through them!).

We know that sense of fear and anticipation when you first strike out on your own, the loneliness of working alone and the challenge of getting yourself going in the morning.

So we’re here to help you turn that fear into enthusiasm, trade in loneliness for community, and learn how to motivate yourself to succeed in the long run.

And give you the skills and training to help you grow a business you love.

Believe . Learn . Do

Every four months we run a short programme that targets specific skills and help you improve those weak spots in your business.

The first meeting of each programme is open to existing small business owners* and will give you some great training held via live webinar with Julie Hall, a chance to brainstorm your business and an opportunity to connect with other fantastic business women.

Our meetings combine great training, practical workshops, brainstorming, masterminding AND networking – though learning is our biggest priority.

You don’t need to be a member to come along to the September meeting and we promise you will get loads out of the session.

September: Face to face selling

Having sales conversations can be one of the hardest things about running your own business.  Particularly if you are not a ‘natural’ sales woman.

And if you feel awkward and uncomfortable when you are having those sales conversations, odds are the person you are talking to is going to feel awkward. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Like anything becoming a great sales person for your business takes skill and practice.

Between September and December you will have the opportunity to develop and practice those skills and develop them further each month.

And by the end of the programme  you will feel like a pro and be able to hold those conversations simply and easily without feeling embarrassed or uneasy.

Some customer love

“The Women Unlimited Business Clubs are a rare and invaluable blend of business seminars, masterminding and ‘incidental’ networking.

It’s an environment that caters to women who are serious about their business growth enabling them to develop their entrepreneurial skills and knowledge while benefitting from the support and feedback of a wider forum of entrepreneurs.

The content, brainstorming and the monthly injection of inspiration has been priceless in my business journey. ”

Teresa Mitrovic, Redefining Life.

 

“The Women Unlimited Business Club provides an extra dimension to networking. You also get to learn about practical tools and strategies for your business development.

The combination of input, interaction and supportive challenge is both motivating and inspiring”.

Sue Oliver

 

“Thank you for organising such amazingly helpful sessions through the Business Club.

It is extremely valuable and unique to be able to pool our knowledge and work together to help both ourselves and other peoples businesses.

It is provides the fresh approach and constructive criticism that we lack when we are working on our own in our small businesses. And it is great fun!”

Emma Hammett, First Aid for Life

  1. Great Article. I use the WordPress platform, and there are literally no less than 50 plugins you can use to interact and collaborate with your sites visitors. Additionally, I think using the CommentLuv plugin is one of the most exciting new tools one can deploy to build relationships between website visitors and the site owner!

  2. have just started using wordpress and i love it, got a bit confused at first with the numerous plugins, but the more i play with them the i see what a brilliant tool it is

  3. I am a WP user, too and also a big commentluv plugin fan. It really shows us tons of useful abilities. This plugin has great benefits in developing a beautiful blog and its optimization. In my opinion, it should be a must-have tool for bloggers these days because of its benefits :)

  4. Hi Julie

    You seem to have some spammers putting comments in your posts so they get some links back to their sites. (They so annoy me!).

    I’ve just signed up for next week on a friend’s recommendation – and I notice your website uses the same theme as mine – I’ve never seen that before!

    See you next week,

    Charley

    Have you considered recording this and putting it up as a webinar? I’m currently transitioning between being in employment to being self-employed. I’d absolutely LOVE to attend this but won’t be able to make it because I’ll be at work.

  6. I like Wei-Leng’s suggestion, though I know logistically it’s not that simple. However, could the powerpoint be available to members who have not been able to attend – like me?!

  7. Dear Julie

    Itching to book the next Business Club meeting – They are SO Good and Linked In is really important. Please let me know when you publish it and I will book in. See you next month and have a great Summer

  8. Is there ANY workable grants sources for a start-up? I am so tired of all the pointless advice thrown at me lacking sensible information and reasoning, that concerns my situation. And often they are given to me by a person who has never run or owned a business and really have no clue how pointless their advice is.

    I am finding it impossible to get funding for my project although I have a lot of business experience and past business success.

    I am currently unemployed after a period of recovery from illness, when I had to close business. I can’t even cover travel costs to meetings. It is impossible to find a funding source for the min £30,000 I need to get started. All I want to know where can I send my application for a £30,000 grant that I actually qualify to apply for. There seem to be a million criteria and restrictions. I know I can make the business happen once the funding is in place. I have a fabulous untapped market and few competitors in the regions. I have potential for substantial growth even in less than two years. But I cannot create castles out of the £5 a day I current live on to also cover start-up costs…

  9. Hi. I just wanted to leave a suggestion to the person who wanted the 30,000 grant to start her business. Sorry but it is generally unlikely you will get a grant or loan for your business. I know it is harsh but it will not happen.

    However this does not mean you give up on your business idea. You might want to look at taking a partner.

    Yes a partner might is probably the way to go. Someone you know…maybe. How about a competitor who might be willing to invest in something. They may see the value and with their resources they can actually see you getting off the ground. They understand your business.

    Also, depending on your business, you might be able to interest a vendor in investing in your idea. Many businesses actually use vendor financing of inventory, etc. to get off the ground.

    Also you can start talking to people. In any event you will need a great business plan. A presentation strategy. The financials well prepared. The key is who will be your customers and how you will get their business.

    Don’t give up just realize a grant or loan is not going to happen so spend your time more productively and get it done. You need a partner (silent or otherwise). You will want to have a lawyer draft whatever partnership deal you can live with.

    Good Luck

  10. Generating traffic is such an important skill- building a wesbite is the easy bit! I have dabbled in various free methods of generating traffic and find posting to local blogs a slow but effective process.

  11. I have to admit, I just found out what the term “webinar” really meant recently. I haven’t regretted it though. On the contrary, various webinars have helped me immensely.

  12. I’ve been debating whether or not to switch over to WordPress for my blog for some time now and this just may push me over the edge.

    • Ellen, What platform are you currently using? I use WordPress with Genesis framework and Studiopress theme. I find these tools to be incredibly intuitive. In addition, since many people use these same tools, the support forums are great resources for help, ideas, and tricks. I highly recommend WordPress — to say the least!

  13. Love the work and knowledge sharing that you provide. I live in Texas and would love to see a business club here. Let me know how I can help set it up!

  14. Great mission,Julie! I know a lot of women(and that includes my girlfriend) that prefer to work for themselves – it’s more satisfying and they can manage they time and responsibilities easier. Some of these women have great business ideas, other not so great and therefore they have a bigger competition…And most of them don’t have the right educational background, but they have the guts to achieve something. I think it’s wonderful to have some help and support! Good luck to you and all the business women!
