Thriver Circle Membership Open Now! (For 48 Hours Only)





Hey Thriver,

It’s time to get the support and guidance you’ve been waiting for…

I’ve opened the doors of the Thriver Circle to new members for 48 hours only. 

I’m so excited to invite new members into our Circle! The last 6 months have been amazing – we’ve had members making huge leaps forward in their businesses – they’ve been crafting new websites; getting media features; increasing sales; gaining the confidence to increase prices; and so much more.

Our members are jewellers, ceramicists, knitters, artists, designers, paper-cutters – they span dozens of different media. There are Circle members from Australia, NZ, America, Canada, the UK, Europe, Singapore… we are a global community of passionate creatives who are focussed on making our passions into a thriving business – and we believe in supporting each other to reach our goals.


What do you get as a member of the Circle?

  • A private, positive community forum – with over 160 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.
  • A monthly call with me, during which 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.
  • 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.


SIGN UP!! Even though I haven’t set up a shop yet, the sharing of information from the community is amazing! I am so happy that I joined the Thriver Circle! You won’t see another bunch of talented handmade artists who are so supportive, encouraging and helpful!!

If you want to join us in the Circle, don’t hesitate.

Membership is only open 4 times a year, for 48 hours at a time. The next intake isn’t until the end of October, and this membership intake will close on Thursday the 30th of July, 8pm Australian EST (convert to your timezone).

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

If you’re not already convinced that the Circle is for you… why not 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.

Let’s make it happen, together!

You can join us here, or find out more.

P.P.S. Please don’t hesitate if you want to join. I’m only holding the doors open for 48 hours, and your next chance to join is 3 months away…


It’s great to be able to duck in and out of this group for insight, inspiration, advice and just to feel like I’m not alone in all of this when some days just feel like I’m in struggletown: population zero! It’s easier knowing we’re all dealing with variations of the same things, and can offer support, guidance and hope. It is SO beneficial on this journey.
