Who Is It For?

Well, anyone who wants really practical marketing advice delivered in a non-scary way. My Super Power is taking quite tricky (or scary) marketing topics and making them really easy to understand and implement.

Whether you're a florist or photographer, a dog trainers or handmade business, a coach or trainer, an artist, soap-maker or jeweller, the BBA is for you. Whether you run a shop or beauty salon or provide wellbeing therapies, the BBA is what you need. Whether you're in network marketing or you run classes for a living, the BBA will help a lot.

It's not about the type of business you run, it's about how you tackle marketing. What I teach you will stick with you (you may even start hearing my voice in your head) and you'll be thinking like a business owner before you know it.

While you're part of the Brilliant Business Academy you will never be alone. You will always have someone to ask and somewhere to find out what you need to know. There is no such thing as a stupid question and you are definitely capable of growing this business (so tell the mind monkeys to buzz off).

It's all about YOU and helping you get the knowledge you need to make your gorgeous business grow, then giving you the tools and time to put it into practise. I'll teach you to work smarter, not harder - it's time to get your business working for you, your way.

You can cancel any time - it's easy from your account dashboard.

I get it. I'm a home-schooling mum and a business owner and I've been where you are. I've had to build my business around challenges and setbacks. I've had to learn to adapt and find the quickest, most effective way to get things done. And I love sharing what I've learned with you.

Plus Monthly Business Clinic Calls

At the start of each month I run a group Q&A call where you get to pick my brains and get my help with your business. It's an 'ask me anything' kind of call and we (me and your fellow BBA'ers) all pitch in on chat to help you. These calls are worth the membership fee alone, it's like having a VIP experience on tap for an hour.

Every month I run at least one live mini-masterclass on a really useful topic. I'm online in the chat, answering your questions as you ask them. Afterwards, the call gets subtitles added and goes to live in the portal, for you to watch whenever you like.

We have over 50 of these masterclasses, power packs and courses waiting for you right now.

Group Brainstorms

We'll take a topic and anyone in the group who has knowledge or experience on that topic will pitch in and share their best tips. This turns into a great knowledge resource, full of little nuggets of wisdom.

Why Listen to Me?

I've been in marketing for a LONG time and I've been helping small-business owners get over themselves, get more focus and clarity and grow their business since 2005. I've got a language degree and an MBA but to be honest, I've learned more about growing businesses by digging in and getting my hands dirty than I ever did at Uni.

I've been featured in The Guardian, Marie-Claire Magazine, the Huffington Post, Essentials Magazine, Closer Magazine, Die Welt and more. My businesses have been featured on Radio One, BBC2 and The Apprentice. I'm on Facebook's Small Business Client Council and was touted by Sheryl Sandberg as one to watch (yay!).

I have helped thousands of women (and a few brave men) become great at marketing and grow their business. I know my stuff and I love sharing what I know with you.

Oh, and I'm a tea-fuelled mum and business owner and I know what it's like to have to deal with all that life throws at you, while trying to build a business (been there, got the very loud and slightly bedraggled t-shirt). I can help you.

My businesses and advice have been featured in (to name but a few)...

The Brilliant Business Academy in their own words...

I asked my BBA members what the BBA means to them and how it helps them. This is what they said:

  • The Girls Mean Business

    “It is a resource to help you build your business. It is not overwhelming you take it at your own pace so it fits in with your life. If you listen and implement what Claire teaches/suggests you will grow your business. The portal offers great support with like mind people all trying to build their business. We are all at different levels and so can support each other when it’s needed.”

    Angelic Mamas

  • The Girls Mean Business

    “A friendly non-hyped approach to marketing without the BS that gets churned out in most free marketing webinars.
    Learning to be respectful to your business and your customers to get the best results for everyone.
    I love that the BBA is and feels very British, full of good old fashioned values of providing good customer service rather than being the best at hustling to get money out of people.
    Can’t help but smile every time I hear “Hello” and “Bye for now”. It’s like I am listening to a friend who really cares about my business.”

    AIW Autism, Inclusion & Wellbeing Consultancy

  • The Girls Mean Business

    “The BBA is THE place to go to gain the skills you never knew you needed to make your micro business flourish and find your brilliant big boss potential!!”

    Curtains by Kate Tiffin

  • The Girls Mean Business

    “All Marketing and Business-building courses in one place. Non-scary and explained in a lovely comprehensive way. The "what-you-need-to-do" is explained and the "how- you-do-it" as well. Implementing made easy 💕
    Also a great community and a marketing expert to ask anything. The hotseats alone are priceless and helped me so much. 💕”

    Coach & Blogger

  • The Girls Mean Business

    “A mini-marketing encyclopedia full of marketing info for the beginner and more experienced. All-round course covering every aspect of marketing for small business owners. The live classes in the Facebook group are as good as 1-2-1 advice with support from an expert at a fraction of the cost of similar courses which do not cover such a full range of marketing.”

  • The Girls Mean Business

    “It’s an all you can eat buffet of business classes, courses and amazing content. It helps you to build your business while remaining sane! ”

    The Maldon Soap Company

  • The Girls Mean Business

    “A great place to learn all things business. A place where it is not scary and is fun and makes everything easy to understand to allow your small business to grow. It helps me understand and find skills I didn’t know I had. It inspires me and helps me say yes I can do this.”

    Monica Milton Jewellery

  • The Girls Mean Business

    “Marketing, motivation and mindset for women business owners who want down-to-earth, practical advice they can implement right now.”
