Working for yourself is empowering and exciting, but it can feel overwhelming and scary too.
- Who can you turn to for help?
- What move should you make – and when?
- Where are all your customers and clients?
- Why’s it taking so long? What are you doing wrong?
- Why on earth are you doing this again!?
You know 1-2-1 coaching would help you get to grips with your business, but right now you don’t have the funds to pay for it. So instead you’ll just have to keep on muddling on alone, making false starts and taking wrong turns on the bewildering road of self-employment.
It doesn’t have to be that way
I created Small Business Big Magic for people just like you. Strong-minded Small Business Owners and Solopreneurs (practising or aspiring) who are crying out for a support team in their corner. Inspiration. Information. Clarity. Community. Wisdom. Woo Woo. Support. Success. I offer you all this, and more, within a mentoring group of fellow work-at-home business owners carving out their own path in life. Because all coaching is delivered in a group, you get direct access to me at a uniquely affordable fee.
What’s in the Box?
Small Business Big Magic membership includes:
1) An initial 1-2-1 personal induction on Skype. I get to know you and your business and draw out your plans and your dreams so we can make the most of our time together in the group work.
2) Access to 10 x live 90-minute conference calls each month where you can join the conversation and talk about your business, pick my brains and learn from listening to me working with other small business owners just like you. I host two or three of these calls each week and you can join in whenever you like.
3) A private Facebook group where you can meet and connect with your contemporaries, sharing news and successes and ideas.
Small Business, Big Benefits!
Sociable I’m no hands-off aloof ‘don’t bother me with your business’ coach – I LOVE working closely with my clients. I care about you and I’m genuinely invested in your success – getting to know you and seeing you thrive is a source of great joy for me. I’m generous with my time and with my wisdom. You can pick my brains as often as you like during drop-in calls and in the Facebook Group. You can also PM me on Facebook or email me anytime for a quick bit of additional help or advice. Sometimes I’ll even suggest an emergency 1-2-1 on Skype.
And it’s not just you and me. You also get support from the others in the group: some will cheerlead for you, some will be in the position to help you, some may even buy from you and some will become dear friends.
Transformational I call it ‘Small Business Big Magic’ for a reason. This group does magical things for its members: together your commitment and passion and ACTION creates miracles. Here are a few of the many successes we see every month in SBBM:
- Clients escaping an endless cycle of analysis paralysis and finally starting to take action.
- Clients learning how to charge properly for their expertise.
- Clients embarking on creative adventures and finding ways to make that pay
- Clients manifesting new types of income when old sources of work disappear suddenly without warning,
- Clients mastering financial abundance and learning to let go of fear of lack and trust in unlimited flow
- Clients attracting their first clients and realising their dreams can become a reality.
Open your heart, do the work and you’ll see big changes. This could be you!
Affordable SBBM offers incredible value for money: I designed it to be both powerful and cost-effective, knowing full well not everyone can pay top dollar when you’re just starting out. Membership is priced at just £750 a year.
“I have gone through different seasons with my business and have been in and out of different coaching situations as my work has changed and grown. I’ve been a part of Small Business Big Magic for several years now and can honestly say that I’ve never for a split second considered changing that. Judith is a delight: Tremendously supportive, organized, and on-point without being formulaic or dogmatic as so many coaches can be. The regularly-scheduled calls are the high points in my month, each sparking days and days of inspiration and forward momentum. And the small group format is very personal and uncluttered, the perfect size for fostering great connections (and friendships). SBBM is a huge factor in my success thus far, and my success to come. I’m so happy I found it.” Margaret Rode
Ask Me Anything…
How do you know Small Business Big Magic is right for you?
If you’re drawn to working with me, it’s probably for good reason. Your intuition is stronger than you think. All kinds of people have joined the group – web designers and developers, yoga teachers, inventors, coaches, artists, adventurers, sailors, therapists, health experts, interior designers, musicians, party planners and more – all deriving great benefit from SBBM membership. You get out what you put in.
Are you allowed to join if you’re not self-employed yet (but you really want to be!)?
Absolutely! In fact, the majority of SBBM members are currently in the process of setting up their first business, some part-time alongside a day job or other freelance work, so you’ll be in great company.
How do the calls work?
The group coaching calls are delivered using WebEx VOIP and they are drop-in calls for members only. You’ll soon get to know your fellow business owners and entrepreneurs so need have no concerns about them listening to you talk and sometimes you might even be there on your own, with just me. You can join in live with as many or as few as you like. Calls are recorded so you can listen again but I encourage all members to aim to join in live at least once a fortnight. I can turn off the recording for confidential matters and calls currently run on a two-weekly schedule (all in London, UK time) as follows:
- Week A: Monday 1700-1830, Wednesday 0800-0930 and Friday 1600-1730
- Week B: Tuesday at 1100-1230 and Thursday at 1900-2030
You can check when the next calls are due to take place on my website, and members receive email invitations and reminders to calls. There’s something for all time zones there. As membership grows, more call time is added to make sure everyone’s needs are met.
Not sure about group coaching? Do you really want strangers knowing your business?
The group setting of Small Business Big Magic is part of what makes it magical. Stop frowning and trying to figure out everything for yourself. By sharing ideas, successes and failures, you’re given the opportunity to grow. And once you start engaging with the rest of the group these ‘strangers’ will soon become friends. There’s incredible rapport in SBBM and we’re ready to welcome you to the party. You will learn by listening to the challenges others face, even if they are not your own. Your business acumen will grow, as will your confidence.
“A year ago I took up Judith’s offer of a free call during which I blurted out a whole lot of ideas of what I thought I could do with my video marketing business. I knew I wanted to take my business in a different direction but I didn’t know which direction. In that call, she asked me one simple question. I answered it – and then I started going in the direction of that answer and I haven’t looked back – well, apart from now . . . when I reflect on what a year it has been, being coached by Judith and how I don’t think this year would have been half as good had I not had that call with her. Thank you from deep within my heart, Judith.” Joanna Urwin

Small Business Big Magic membership dues rise regularly but once you’re a member, that rate is yours for life unless you choose to leave and later re-join, in which case you’ll be able to subscribe at the prevailing rate.
I’m now in my second year of SBBM membership and I’m so glad I joined. Judith gives me support, encouragement and sanity in so many ways. Through working with her I’m developing the confidence to value myself and my skills. I’m learning to run my business authentically, in a way that works for me, instead of blindly following the usual establishment advice. The SBBM group format is great. I’ve made good friends and useful business contacts through the Facebook group. Everyone is friendly, supportive, open and helpful. It’s a safe space for a sometimes vulnerable solopreneur like me. It’s humbling and also reassuring to know that everyone has wobbles from time to time, yet they overcome them and move on. We learn from each other. We’re all unique, and yet ultimately similar.
