Monthly Business Goals & Networking
As a way to raise funds for the HappiMe app, we are offering a very low cost way for individuals, micro business owners or sole traders to access Business Coaching with our Small Business Goals Night and Networking. Prices are £13 per session which is over 80% cheaper than what larger businesses would typically pay for a similar group and all profits from these sessions go the HappiMe project!

I really enjoyed a recent Goal Setting and Networking evening run by Jo. It was well planned and executed with a good balance of informal discussion and structured goal setting exercises. I made some great connections and booked a new 1 to 1 client for Photography Tuition. I’m looking forward to attending more events in the future.

I recently attended Jo’s Business Networking & Goals night. It was my first networking event and was very apprehensive but Jo immediately made me feel at ease, she’s a great facilitator! I made some great connections and got some useful advice and guidance from Jo and other attendees. I was able to set realistic and achievable goals for my business. Looking forward to the next one!

Jo is fantastic and her Small Business Growth Club sessions are too. It’s a welcoming environment and you are able to get solid, constructive and positive advice about the next steps to take to achieve your goals. Jo’s ability to understand you and your situation and to help identify ways to improve is amazing’

I found the Small Business Growth Club with Jo really helpful and I came away with ideas for the next steps to take in business. It was also great to meet like minded people, drawing on their experiences and and finding out more about their business ventures. Thank you Jo for facilitating a great evening.

So grateful to Jo for inviting on to a Small Business Growth Club session. It gave me the boast I needed to start advertising and confidence to start talking about my services to potential clients!...seeing the results straight away.
Tom Bailey (Catering Company)
The Small Business Growth Club monthly groups have given me amazing support over the last 12 months. I go with issues I’m having and leave with solutions, often other members of the group have encountered and overcome similar problems even though their business may be in a different field. The meetings also make me accountable for my actions, if I say I’m going to complete a task I don’t want to experience the shame of saying I’ve not finished it at the next meeting, strong motivation! Jo has an incredible knack of pin pointing exactly what I need to do to improve my business by working smarter
I can’t wait for next months meeting!!
Susan Bahnsen (Property Development)
I find the Small Business Growth Club sessions incredibly useful and also very enjoyable. Jo has a vast array of useful business tools and techniques at her fingertips and give incredibly useful advice for specific situations or problems. The other members also provide great ideas and tips. It a very positive, supportive environment and I always come away feeling uplifted, enthusiastic and much happier than when I went in! I’d thoroughly recommend joining it!
PS she also does great 1 to 1 business coaching too!

I attended Jo's Small Business Growth Club sessions for about 6 months. I found them to be incredibly useful! It was great being able to talk through various ideas and get advice from people who were either doing the same thing, trying to do the same thing, or had done the same thing. Whilst everybody might have a good idea of what they need to do to progress, the sense of community that attending created, meant that you had a group to almost answer to. This makes you get on with things before the next meeting and stops you putting off the tricky things you've been meaning to do! Couldn't recommend it enough!
Rebecca Noakes (Photography)
Jo's sessions have proved really useful for me and my photography business. The monthly meeting is a great chance to focus on where I'm at and what I need to do next. Jo always gives good advice and handy tips to organising and improving my business practice. It's also a fantastic opportunity to meet other business owners who bring their experience and expertise to the table. A friendly, confidential and motivating group. I'd recommend it any business owner who wants a place to discuss, share and get a hold of what they need to do next.
Isabel De Meiroz Dias (Financial Management)
The sessions have had a great impact on my business. Jo gives excellent advice, and talking to other business owners with similar issues is a very rich experience.
Susannah Thomson (Speach Therapy)
I love that the Small Business Growth Club sessions give me a timetable to be accountable to myself and the group. I have received so much support and help to tweak my business practices and it makes a difference. Connecting with other people in micro businesses is important as most other business coaches focus on bigger enterprises. This is just right for me.

Who runs the session?
The sessions are facilitated by experienced Business Coach Jo Richings. Jo has been successfully coaching businesses for over 12 years. She gives up her time for free to run the sessions as a way to generate funds to keep the HappiMe apps updated. Each update costs £100's (the last update was £500! ) Each time Apple or Android update their operating systems, it has the potential to destabilise the app :-(
