Small business owners – join our band of superheroes! 

We are a unique online business community with support and collaboration at the heart of everything we do; openly sharing experiences, collectively solving problems, with lots of learning and lots of fun.
Our mantra is that all of us are smarter than any of us!
Our members are those who have made a business that gives them choice in how they work and don’t want or need to scale – we know that choosing to stay small doesn’t mean you’re unambitious or unsuccessful.
We’re based in the UK and have members in many other countries and all our members have one thing in common – they want to run their businesses ethically and do what they can to make the world a better place for people and the planet.
We’re here for each other and we’d love you to join us.
Try one of our meetings and see how it works.


With the right people around you, running a business can be fun, exciting and very profitable.

All of us together are smarter than any of us alone, and collaboration is the route to the best outcomes.
Learn, share, explore, support and watch what happens!

“I’d been struggling to make progress for two years and as soon as I joined Drive I started seeing results.

“I’ve found being a member of this funky, fun and feisty tribe invaluable. It’s a supportive haven and an invaluable knowledge hub to plug into.  I’ve also benefitted from Ann’s direct support. She has been a steadfast, supportive coach and thinking partner and helped me hold steady and be accountable as well as facilitate my thinking and be in my corner.” Thor A Rain The Helpful Clinic  :pray:
