Value yourself and your work 

There has been intense pressure on business owners to re-assess their purpose and the value they bring to the world.

The way we value ourselves has a huge impact on the way we run our businesses. From ethics to pricing, everything is affected by our feelings of self-worth.

Our four week workshops cover the four cornerstones of this approach.

1. Create or refine your offering with your market, not for them.

2. Find clients who understand why you and your approach to helping solve their problems is valuable.

3. Instead of looking for validation from your clients become their trusted partner, not a needy supplier.

4. Equip others to tell your story, and empower them to become your marketing partners.

All of this encompasses the kind of life you want to lead: taking care of yourself, your community and the planet.

Marketing is a team sport! 

Marketing is one of the most important activities for small businesses but one that so many find difficult.  Developing your own marketing message is a bit like cutting our own hair: in theory, we have the skills, we just lack the perspective. A small tweak in perspective can often make a big difference in revenue.

Good conversations and relationships are the keys to business success and Drive members excel in building  trusted relationships every day of the week. These relationships rapidly become the key capital of your business. It’s networking at a very different level.

When you equip others to tell your story it means they can open doors for you and become more valuable themselves by providing good solutions for their network – and of course, you can do the same.

The Art of Subtle Networking 

Our members have developed their own unique style of networking. By really getting to know each other as people, by taking time to appreciate each others values, talents and expertise, they happily do business together and recommend and refer each other to clients.

No-one ever tries to sell to each other. Everyone helps each other just because they can, and not with any view to getting something in exchange. It’s very subtle but it works. If traditional networking makes you uncomfortable, you’ll feel at home here!

“I wanted to send a big “thank you” to you, once again, for the support you have given me in my business. A conversation in the Drive Group led to my finding a whole new market and creating a whole new product! Thank you SO much for the opportunities you are providing for me and for so many people. I am really grateful and very appreciative.” Rosalind Bubb.
