Join the Thriver Circle Now – Membership Open

Hey Thriver,

It’s time!

I’ve opened the doors of the Thriver Circle to new members for the final time in 2015. 


Are you joining us?


Who are we?


Our members are jewellers, ceramicists, knitters, artists, designers, paper-cutters – we span dozens of different creative media.

There are Circle members from Australia, NZ, America, Canada, the UK, Europe, Singapore… we are a global community of creatives who are focused on making our passions into a thriving business – and we believe in supporting each other to reach our goals.

No matter where you live, no matter where you are in your business journey – we’re right there with you, whenever you need us.


What are the benefits of joining the Circle?


>> A private, active, positive community forum – withover 200 fellow creatives who are already there to help you and keep you accountable (and you get direct access to me, too). It’s a safe, supportive space to share your concerns, questions, and successes!

>> One exclusive workshop from me every month, covering topics like pricing, selling online, marketing, social media, photography, time management, finding your ideal customer… and more. Oh, and you can request workshops, too. These are not available anywhere else. (There are already 10 workshops inside the Circle, waiting for you as soon as you sign up!)

>> A monthly call with me, during which up to 2 members of the Circle get 30 minutes of one-on-one time with me in a Business Intensive + there is a Q&A session at the end.

>> Twice-monthly live chats in the FB group – focused on helping you grow your business, and specifically, on that month’s workshop topic.

>> Exclusive access to our Handmade Biz Bootcamp in January! Only Thriver Circle Members will have access to this program.

>> Early notification + a member’s discount whenever I launch a course or program. 


These are just some of the benefits you get from being part of the Circle… you can find out all the details of these benefits and  more here.

It’s an enormous amount of value for a very small cost, and I’m adding more value to the Circle every month.


If you want to join us in the Circle, don’t wait…


Membership is only open 4 times a year, for 48 hours at a time. The next intake isn’t until 2016, and this membership intake will close on Thursday the 29th of October, 10am Australian EST.


What’s my investment?


Membership is only $15 AUD per month, paid via paypal subscription. You can cancel any time – there are no lock-in contracts, no big up-front cost.

If you’re not already convinced that the Circle is for you… try it out for a month for the price of a good magazine and a cup of coffee and find out for sure.

My goal is for you to be learning what you need to in order to turn that small $15 a month investment in to hundreds – if not thousands – of dollars a month income from your business.

You can join us here, or find out more.
