Our free monthly goal setting sessions provide an opportunity to connect with like-minded biz owners, celebrate your wins and workshop your challenges. You’ll walk away with fresh goals and a plan in place that you can get started on right away.

For many women working from home, lack of accountability can cause low motivation, lack of achievement and a business that experiences stagnation. These sessions encourage you to stick to your goals, with the support of other motivated ladies to cheer you on!

Is it for you?

If you’re a service based business owner working from home who’s looking for some focus and accountability to reach your goals, and enjoys meeting like-minded women in business then these monthly sessions are just the thing for you.

If you’ve never set goals before and have no idea what to do then these sessions are especially for you! Each session is guided by the super friendly ideas guru and business strategist Michelle, who will make you feel welcome and will guide you every step of the way.

What happens in session?

Spots are limited so you’ll need to register. Once you’ve registered you’ll receive the session details and goal setting journal in your email. In session we’ll meet in Zoom and have a quick chitchat to get to know each other. We’ll celebrate our wins from the previous month, and then set goals and draft a plan of action for the coming month.
