Ready to build and scale your business to achieve everything you dreamed of when you started - without sacrificing your personal life (and your sanity!) to do so?
You've got your business up and running, you know who you want to work with and how you're going to help them, and you know you're in this now for the long haul... Now what???
The truth is that escaping the 9 to 5 is not just about saying, "I quit!" to your boss or putting up a website and ordering a set of business cards. A sustainable escape requires you to design and build a viable business that consistently brings in income and that fits in around the other priorities in your life.
Discover the 5Ls model to help you think more broadly about success
In my experience - from my own life and from working with clients over the years - there are five key areas in our lives that need to be balanced in order for us to thrive and live a truly successful life in a more whole and holistic sense: LIVE - Wellness & Wellbeing; LOVE - Relationships & Romance; LEARN - Development & Growth; LEAD - Career & Impact; and LAUGH - Fun & Spontaneity.
Then this is the programme for you!
This is a mastermind for entrepreneurs, freelancers and small business owners who want to build a sustainable life and business outside of the 9 to 5. (If you're just starting out, and still in your job, check out the One Step Outside the 9 to 5 business incubator >>)
It's a membership programme where you'll get ongoing coaching, mentoring and training to help you continue moving forwards with your business: strengthening and refining your business fundamentals, growing your audience and your credibility, and setting clear goals and parameters that will make the business work for you in the long term.
Yes! I'm ready to accelerate my business!

What's the investment?
The investment in 2021 is £120 per month. There is also an annual payment option that gives you 12 months for the price of 10. That's about the price of a coffee per day (at least at London prices!).
The programme is priced as a 'no brainer' to make it easy for you to get the support you need on an ongoing basis to solidify and grow your business. This is the cheapest it will ever be and if you join now you'll have the opportunity to take advantage of a small initial group size and have the chance to shape the programme itself.
Here's what some of my clients have had to say...
“I love the way Anna takes a holistic approach to help people be successful in their work as a self-employed person, as well as in their personal lives. Anna is always reminding our group to remember what is right for us, or to define success for ourselves, rather than live up to expectations of what society or others think you should be doing or making choices out of fear. She also provides very useful advice and exercises for improving how you do business. Another reason I like this course is a sense of community. As members it feels like we are in this career journey together and we have a lot of shared experiences and support one another as well as Anna supporting us.”
Anita - research consultant
“The accelerator programme has become a grounding presence in my business journey and has been an invaluable rudder through the changes the past 12 months have brought worldwide. I love the diverse nature of business owners who work together and share support. The monthly trainings have always proven to be practical and inspiring. I also have really benefited from working closer with Anna. For the first time ever my business is booked out for the next month and I’m well on my way to achieving my goal of a sustainable income created through my own business.”
Terri - brand and Squarespace designer
"What makes Anna stand out is that she engages in you to 100% and coaches you to realise the importance of looking at yourself from all perspectives of life. She delivers her coaching and advice in a positive, engaging, and non-judging manner (I still hear Anna’s encouraging voice in my head when I want to beat myself up over failures and slow progress)."

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it for me?
This is for you if have already quit your job and you're committed to making your business and lifestyle outside of the 9 to 5 work in the long term; if you're at that point where you're ready to invest in yourself and in your business, and you want to learn and implement the strategies and systems that will help elevate your brand and build a business that lasts; and if you're motivated to do the work in your own time but you want that extra guidance, a sounding board and accountability to accelerate your progress.
If you feel that you're further along, you already have a consistent stream of clients and you're looking for more tailored support to grow and scale your business to the next level and to step up as a true leader in your space, then please consider a 1:1 mentoring package. Get in touch here >>
How does it work?
This is a group mastermind with monthly training sessions, coaching and Q&A calls. If you're not able to join live, you can always submit questions ahead of time and listen to the recording afterwards.
Each quarter, we'll also spend time reviewing results and setting goals and priorities for the next three months.
You'll be getting frameworks and templates on specific topics to help you tailor what you're learning and apply it to your specific business and personal goals.
What will I learn?
You will learn strategies and frameworks to help you optimise your business model, strengthen your proposition and refine your messaging; build a personal brand, attract an audience and create a community around your vision; and maximise your time and energy as you develop a laser focus on doing what really matters.
You will also learn a whole lot about yourself, about your skills and strengths and how you can manage your mindset and set yourself up for success.
The programme is dynamic, and I will create new content and focus areas in response to specific things that come up for you and the rest of the group. If there's a particular area that you want to make sure is covered in the programme, get in touch and I'll see what I can do!
What's the benefit of doing a group programme rather than individual coaching?
The group mastermind format is a great way to access ongoing training and materials, be part of a dynamic community of like-minded professionals, and get 1:1 support in a group setting.
Group coaching requires a lower investment than individual sessions with me, so it’s really a great way to get access to this level of support. You always have the option to upgrade to 1:1 support if you feel you need it, however.
As the group grows, your network will also expand among other solopreneurs and entrepreneurs working on making an impact in their business.
What if I need more support?
The programme includes monthly training sessions, coaching and Q&A calls, as well as ongoing support in a private community. However, in between sessions, you will be working on your business and your particular priorities in your own time.
If you do find that you need more support guidance in a 1:1 setting, there is the option to instead invest in an individual business coaching package.
