… read what the members have to say about it!

"Joining the Growing Club has made me focus on what is important in my business in order to create sustainable growth."

"Meeting the team of women in the Growing Club has been such a bonus to me and I don’t feel so alone at all now."

"I love learning about all the aspects of running a business, and having this clear on my mind as I go forward. The buddy system is so valuable too. I appreciate the 1:1 time to discuss progress and share experiences. A fantastic group!"

"I wholeheartedly recommend the Growing Club to any woman who runs a small business, I believe even the most successful of business women would leave the Growing Club even more enriched and empowered than they already are."

"Coming here has changed how I think about my business."

"The Growing Club (GC) is an investment of time and personal commitment both to myself personally and my business and also to the other members of our group."
