Talking to like-minded people about what I do is a kind of magic, it leads me down avenues I'd never thought of.

Nurture and Thrive is a community of like-minded side-hustlers who are all in the same boat as you. It’s a trusted space where you can be open about your wins as well as your challenges. We’ll share ideas and solve problems together. We’ll listen to stories from inspiring business women who took their side-hustle to financially sustainable business. And, there will also be opportunities to meet up in person at our quarterly meet ups, starting with our first one, in December (location and date TBC very soon).
This community isn’t about bombarding you with should-dos and ‘how to kill-it on Pinterest’ type masterclasses. Not that there’s anything wrong with those, it’s just that I know you’ve already got enough on your plate.
This community is about meaningful conversations, getting inspired and finding the accountability you need to make things happen in your business.
This is for you if…
You feel alone in building your business as a side-hustle
You need a boost in your confidence that will help you see past the self doubt you’re feeling
You’re looking for some accountability to help you get on with the things that you dream of making a reality in your business.
You’re looking for genuine conversations and like-minded people who you can bounce ideas off.
This isn’t for you if…
You think the idea of community over competition is nonsense.
You’re not prepared to get outside of your comfort zone to make things happen in your side-hustle
You’re looking for the secret to taking your side-hustle to booked out and full-time in two months…
Spoiler alert - there is no magic answer. It’s all about embracing the journey and having the right people around you.
I used to work in a grey office and my dream was to live the slower, more meaningful lifestyle I ached for. One where I could walk the dogs at whatever time of day I felt like it, and write my website copy from the bath if I so wished (which is what I’m doing right now).
When I started side-hustling, I kept myself small and my progress was SLOW. After a few years of feeling stuck I decided to get serious about my business, and just over a year later I left my 9-5.
What made it all possible? A TON of work, and finding the right support.
This year I’ve run a bunch of planning workshops and spoken at creative business events. I’ve seen how talking to people who get what you’re going through and know what it takes to build a business can give you the confidence boost and reassurance you so need.
Realising that others are on the same emotional rollercoaster as you can be weirdly comforting and it never fails to escape me how easily we can see the strengths and wins to celebrate in each other, even when we struggle to see them in ourselves.
I’ve also seen how an added layer of accountability can be the difference between feeling stuck in your side-business and achieving great things.

Access to the members-only facebook group where we’ll celebrate each other’s wins, hold each other accountable and trouble shoot the challenges we’re all facing.
We’ll also work to the cycle of setting 12-week plans and working through them together. (from Jan 2020)
This is also where you’ll find the weekly accountability thread and we’ll be running the monthly Inspiration sessions and Q&A lives in there as well.
There will also be a monthly book club for those who want to join in and a monthly theme to get on board with.
Phew, that’s a lot!
A members area with unlimited access to all of my practical workbooks and templates, including:
Make a Plan
Make it Happen
Make a Money Plan
Make it Yours
Make Your Escape
Digital 12-week plan template
Finance tracker template
Marketing calendar template
+ lots more.
A quarterly UK meet up (at an additional cost to cover venue/ food – I will be keeping these as affordable as possible).
Our first meet up is all booked and will be held in December. We will also be running a poll in the Facebook group to gauge demand for another December meet-up else where in the country. All the info is on the membership pages.
The plan for the meet ups is to have a really informal and cosy lunch followed by a walk - giving us maximum opportunity for lots of chatting.
Live chats with inspiring business owners who share the story of how they’ve grown their business from side-hustle to financially sustainable business.
The idea behind these sessions is to get inspired and give you the confidence boost you need to make you feel like you can do it too.
A monthly live Q&A with me where you get to submit your questions for me to answer.
The focus here will be on helping you make things happen in your business, not add more to-do’s and should-do’s to your plate.
You’ll get the chance to join one of the Make it Happen group mentoring sessions with me each month, where you can get my help with whatever you’re struggling with in your side-hustle and hear how other side-hustlers are growing their businesses too.

A friendly little welcome note from me
You’ll get instant access to the membership area and all workbooks and templates. The Facebook group will open on the 1st November so we can all kick off together. Eeeek, I can’t flipin’ wait! If you have any questions before joining, check out the FAQs below or feel free to send me an email.
There’s a minimum sign up period of 3 months, after that your membership will keep rolling at £29/ month (this is a fixed cost, it will not increase). After your initial 3-months you can cancel at any time.
As the saying goes, the more you put in the more you get out. But equally, we all have busy lives. I see the live sessions and group coaching sessions as being where you’ll find lots of inspiration and support with your side-hustle. There will be 1x Inspiration session per month, 1x Q&A live session per month and a group coaching session each month too. All will be about 45minutes - 60 minutes long. In addition to that there will also be the conversation in the Facebook group - this is where we’ll hold each other accountable and cheer each other on. Finally, there’s the free resources - workbooks and templates. These are there to help you work through the relevant challenges you’re experiencing in your business, but there’s no pressure to work through these at all.
The doors will close towards the end of October and won’t re-open then until end of December / January.
I think we’ve all done that! But this community isn’t about bombarding you with should-dos and ‘how to kill-it on Pinterest’ type masterclasses. Not that there’s anything wrong with those, it’s just that I know you’ve already got enough on your plate. This community is about genuine conversations, getting inspired and finding the accountability you need to make things happen in your business.
If you’re building your business on the side of other commitments, like a 9-5, raising children, caring for family members or anything else that competes for your time, you’re my kind of person. You’ve got a lot to juggle and this community is going to be full of people like you, so whether you can your business a ‘side-hustle’ or not, you’re more than welcome :)
Absolutely not! You can join us from anywhere in the world. If you’re outside the UK, the only two considerations you might want to think about are that the meet-ups will be happening in the UK, I’ll be making sure these happen all over the UK. The other consideration is what time zone you’re in, as a large proportion of the community are going to have a 9-5 or be raising children, the lives and mentoring group calls will mostly happen in the evening GMT.
Nope. We’re going to be a mix of service-based and product based businesses. Some will even be a mix of both. But what we will all have in common is the fact that we’re juggling our time with our to-do lists and we need some support and accountability to help us make things happen in our side-businesses. Whether you sell, services, products or haven’t figured out what you sell yet, this is a space for all types of business models.
