Business Mentors For Women

Starting, growing and running a business is hard and is a learning experience for everyone. Every year, thousands of new small businesses are born. However, only a handful can succeed in the business world. Business mentors and coaches can help you and your business thrive.

Starting a business from scratch is not only about having an idea – it takes a lot of hard work and determination to see your dreams into reality. But you don’t have to do it alone! 

Having a one-on-one relationship with someone who is dedicated to helping you understand what’s best for your professional future can make all the difference. Experience and an outside perspective is key when it comes to the advice that they provide and can help translate your goals, ambitions and desires into reality.

“I did not choose my trajectory, it chose me. I was a young first-time Mom when I had a stillbirth. This was a turning point in my life. Not only did I lose my baby, I lost my dreams, my identity, my confidence. I was at the precipice of going down the rabbit hole of despair when I realised that it would not rewind the past. What I learned is that we suffer more in our imagination than we do in reality.

It showed me how our happiness really does depend on the quality of our thoughts.

I learned that we cannot change anything outside of ourselves yet we can change the way we choose to respond to them. It taught me that none of us get out of life unscathed and that resilience is a learned skill.

It taught me to live wholeheartedly. You can too.”

“My life’s experiences have been wide and varied and the learnings have been deep and downright uncomfortable! Writing a book about my cheating (first) husband gave me huge insight into relationships.

Since then, I’ve re-invented myself (a few times) over the decades – Admin Extraordinaire (organisational skills), Graphic Designer (creative), Funeral Director (empathy and understanding), and now Expressive Art Therapist – which I believe takes a piece of all my life’s experiences into one tool that can benefit so many!

So I definitely know about pivoting and starting over.

I know we are all great women doing the best that we can and I’m looking forward to meeting you and helping you on your journey in life!”

“How many times do you wish someone could come into your business and “sort out your staff?”

OR wish you could just talk to someone who knew and understood your situation first hand – and could give you advice on how best to deal with your team?

Leadership is massive, right? And dealing with our team and getting them in the right flow is the most difficult thing for many business owners – me included years ago!

As a salon owner, I understand how we creatives are a special breed – in a good way!  But I want to help you firstly; not let the crap get to you, and secondly;  get positive results in your decision-making and your team.

I am confident and insightful and I know how to help you take control of difficult situations and people. My own creative team has been with me for 6 years (and counting) which as you know is a long time in a creative industry.

People are often not bad at all, and I approach each mentoring session with genuine care, respect and without judgement. So if you’re a small – medium business, I can help you. I know what you go through!

Book a Half-Hour of Power call with me – I’ll help you get your situation sorted and your business running smoothly again – you’ll be so glad you did!

Can’t wait to chat!

“It was the success of my first business that literally pushed me into the limelight.

Although I was fiercely goal-oriented at the time, becoming a speaker and coach was totally unplanned, but I gave it my all and learned to go with the flow and say yes to the requests.

I learned to accept what life offered me and take action on the business ideas that woke me in the night. Some worked, some didn’t, and even though they’ve led me down a hugely varied and exciting entrepreneurial path.

Each business I have founded has had one thing in common – they empower people – and Ruffle is no exception.

I want Ruffle to help you find the confidence to stand strong as a woman, earn a great income, and feel proud of yourself in your business knowing you’re on the right path.

Because for me, this is where true freedom is.”

Are you a start-up or an established business needing to get clear on your vision? Or maybe you need sound business strategy around your marketing, pricing, sales, or profit? 

Then Karyn is the mentor for you.

“If I’ve learned nothing else, it’s that life will bring us what we need, not what we want! And I’m here to help you clear your clutter and help you organise your office and your day, so you can think clearly and find things easily. It reduces the overwhelm!

Like all of us I’ve had challenges, yet I wouldn’t change any of it. It’s got me to where I am today and I have used these as opportunities to grow and find more of me. How cool is that? 

A health crisis (a couple of dances with cancer), relationship heartbreak… I have learned not to make decisions from fear and to always, always face it head-on from my heart, not my mind.

I am passionate about inner freedom – gaining awareness about beliefs, behaviours, and triggers that keep us trapped and hinder us from finding our best self.

So, I’m all about helping you to clear your internal and external clutter by getting you super-organised – easily!”

If you’re ready to get out of overwhelm and into organised – Julie is the mentor for you.

Amanda 

Gore

Rated 5 out of 5

Voted in the Top 50 Keynote Speakers 2022, Amanda Gore is up there with the likes of Brené Brown, Mel Robbins, and Lisa Nichols – to name a few.  But this world-renowned hall-of-fame speaker explains that getting down to business isn’t all about targets, goals, marketing, and optimising click-throughs.

The heart and profit centre of every business is about how people think, and consequently, feel about themselves; and how they make others feel. I help you find and change the limiting stories you are telling yourself and that in turn transforms your life and business – massively! We are not our stories, but our stories run our lives! Including how we present ourselves in all situations.”

Amanda knows that from personal (and challenging) experiences! Our stories determine how we feel – about personal or business relationships and inform every part of our decision to invest with a company or individual. Amanda’s experienced mentoring offers an abundance of use-it-now tools to create deep, lasting changes in relationships at every level – with yourself, family, customers, colleagues, staff, or your audience.

Amanda leaves you feeling more confident, good about yourself, and believing in yourself most importantly – which means you will be more energised, enthusiastic, and re-engaged!

Business Mentors For Women

Take Your Business To The Next Level

With an abundance of information available on the internet today, you may think it’s unnecessary to have a mentor. While it is possible to learn from videos, articles and podcasts, nothing beats the experience and expertise of a business mentor.

By offering an external, objective and constructive perspective, a business coach can help you overcome your fears and take the initiative in steering your business in the right direction. It is a partnerships that will enhance and accelerate growth for both your company and yourself.

Business is a diverse subject with a host of contributing factors. Where one may excel at the practical side of owning a business, others might be more accomplished and confident in public relations and public speaking.

Improve Communication Skills

Running a business involves much more than numbers and budgeting. Communication, with employees, clients and investors are critical to the success and life of your business. Unfortunately, good communication skills do not come naturally. Shyness, low self-confidence and feelings of inferiority can hinder your ability to communicate effectively.

Working with a business mentor can help you overcome these obstacles and take all of your skills to the next level. The expertise that they have acquired over time in their own business can be used to help you feel confident and clear as you communicate.

Better Decision Making

Every business owner has experienced the pressure to make important decisions. But when you are in this position, it can be difficult to know which choice will have the most beneficial outcome for your business. While staying true to your original aims are important, recognising when changes need to be made is also essential. 

Here a business mentor will support and assist you by offering an unbiased and objective perspective. Sometimes, decisions are easier to make if we have a variety of perspectives to consider.

Gain Motivation

No matter how successful you are in your business, there will always be setbacks. This is part of the process and one that every entrepreneur will experience during their journey.

However, sometimes it can difficult to get back on track when things aren’t going according to plan. Having a mentor by your side can help keep you motivated and inspired. They are your support system through all obstacles that you face.

Gain Motivation

Having been in the same position as you, a business mentor will understand and be able to help you grow your company. With their expertise and experience, they will be able to provide the advice that only comes from someone who has been in your shoes and can speak from personal experience.
