Running a business on your own is hard.
We make it easy – and fun.

“People have an inner DRIVE to be good at what they do, to be self-directed and connected” – Daniel Pink

Ann Hawkins, founder of Drive,
business advisor and mentor.

Drive is an on-line community of business owners who share their expertise and skills to help and support each other.  

Membership costs £29.95 a month and gets you individual and group support, introductions to potential clients, partners and collaborators, plus mentoring and accountability to help you reach your goals. You can also access our Learning Hub of workshops on every topic you need.

We treat every member as an individual and work with you to get you where you want to be.

If you’d like a chat with founder Ann Hawkins about how Drive membership will help you, please get in touch or dive straight in and give it a try for a month and see if you like it (you can cancel your payments at any time.)

“I want to honour Drive’s 5th birthday by sharing how invaluable I have found being a member of this funky, fun and feisty tribe. It’s felt like a safe 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. Bowing in gratitude, I smile and savour the treasure that is Ann and the Drive Tribe” :pray:

How we work

We focus on collaboration and peer group learning – we’re stronger together!


You get knowledge, support, opportunities to collaborate, referrals, team marketing and great people to have fun with and work with. We help you be the best boss you’ve ever had, to enjoy your business and your life and do it with people who understand exactly what it takes and who happily share what they’ve learned along the way.

We help you reach the people you want to do business with, and in return you help other members to do the same. Our unique brand of subtle networking is the opposite of pushy referrals and much more powerful because its all based on trust.  Mentoring and accountability helps you build a business that gives you choice, freedom, and a great life.

Our network has always been diverse but we want to do better. We challenge bigotry and discrimination wherever we see it, we’re boycotting Facebook which openly and knowingly encourages dissent and misinformation as well as facilitating the funding of extremist organisations, we support the Conscious Advertising Network, The New Citizen Project and we actively enable and encourage collaboration over competition and openly share expertise and knowledge.
