You've got some really good reasons to set up your own business.
And you thought you were ready to make the jump. But lately, you're really starting to wonder ....
You're struggling with so many things. Finding the right idea. Learning how to get customers. Making the shift from employee or stay-at-home parent to business owner.
And the technology! Oh. My. Goodness! Who knew there were so many technical things you had to figure out!
And your mindset is all over the place. You're having more and more negative thoughts, terrified that maybe you've made the wrong choice. And you're feeling paralysed by all the decisions you have to make on a constant, daily basis.
But you want this SO MUCH.
Maybe you want to have more control over your day and what you do with the time you've been given.
Or perhaps you want to be able to spend more time with the people you care about.
AND you definitely want to be able to make a difference in this world ... even if it's something that's been done before ... like helping other people build better mouse traps. Or teaching kids how to deal with bullying or stress.
I've been there too. My biggest problem was trying to decide exactly HOW to help people. I have a Chief Information Officer background and over 15 years experience in helping people use digital technology. So I had a lot of things to choose from. But that old problem of "paralysis by analysis" nearly stopped me cold.
And don't even get me started on "shiny object syndrome"! When I finally made the leap from corporate employee to business owner, there were so many new things to research and learn and try out, that it was almost impossible NOT to get distracted.
So it took me WAY longer than it should have to figure things out for my business. But I finally did. Partly because I was determined to succeed and partly because I joined a supportive group of people who were trying ... same as me ... to get their new business up and running.
And ever since, my heart goes out to people going through that same, tough start up phase.
In fact, the Online Business Launch Pad series started as a result of a pilot that I did with Vision Australia, where we put a group of blind and partially sighted people through the program. And it's just grown from there.
Just imagine if you could be part of a supportive group of people, all helping each other break through the barriers and build a successful business ... one that gives you the control you need, really helps others ... and makes money.
At Online Business Launch Pad, we're here to help you get started, WITHOUT wasting time, money or energy on things that WON'T work for you or your business.
So what part of the journey are you on? What are YOU wanting to do?

Not Quite Ready To Do One Of Our Programs, But You'd Still Like Some Help? Join Our Supportive Online Business Launchpad Community
I've already mentioned that I have over 15 years experience in helping people and businesses use digital technology to achieve their goals. And I also have years of experience coaching and mentoring people, both in their careers and in getting started as entrepreneurs.
Most importantly of all, I've done the hard yards in building my own company and I specialise in teaching people how to set up their business and grow it online.

I know that my story is probably a lot like yours ....
When I first started my own business, I didn't want to admit it, but I was lost!
There were so many things I had to learn ... and do ... that it felt like I had to be "Chief Everything". You know, the CEO, the CIO, the CFO? You name it, that was me trying to learn how to do everything at once.
But the hardest thing was choosing exactly what clients I should focus on. There were so many people I wanted to help and in so many different ways, that I couldn't choose between them.
As a consequence I floundered for months, going this direction and then that direction. Swinging in the wind, really.
It was confusing for me and even more confusing for my potential clients.
It wasn't until I got involved with a couple of business support networks, that I finally got clarity on what I wanted my business to be about.
Another thing that held me back were the negative voices telling me I was either wasting my time trying to build a business, not meeting expectations or doing it all wrong.
Some of those voices came from other people.
But some of those negative thoughts were my own. In fact, sometimes I would give in to my secret fears ... like pricing my services too low because I was afraid people would think it (I) wasn't worth it.
Once again, it was only through becoming part of a community of supportive people who pulled me up and made me face my fears, that I started to truly build the business I wanted to build.
So I decided I wanted to help people the same way. I wanted to set up a community of people who are trying to achieve something big ... that will help others AND themselves. And our Online Business Mastermind Community is the result.
HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY ...
"I want to share my excitement! After my biz coaching session with Trudy, I was so inspired by the ideas, and the strategy that I put it out to the following I’m slowly building @in.the.ra on instagram. And the response has been AMAZING! Their enthusiasm is exciting, can’t wait to put this community together!" -- Jess A.
"Trudy is a rockstar at helping new entrepreneurs blossom. Through working with her to launch a new business, I was impressed by her gentle yet well-balanced approach of providing guidance - such as overcoming mental blocks when leaving my full-time job. Highly recommended if you're thinking of making that leap from 'wantrepreneur' to entrepreneur." -- Bin T.
ABOUT OUR ONLINE BUSINESS LAUNCHPAD COMMUNITY
This community is a private membership-based community for women and men who have big dreams, but are facing challenges in their business or career. You know what you want to achieve, but you don't necessarily always know how to get there. Or those voices in your life (or your head) are telling you it's not possible and you know you need other people to help you shut those voices out and prove them wrong.
Some mastermind-type communities charge $1000's to become members. I personally know people who pay $2,000 a month to be part of their mastermind group.
But not us.
Our Online Business Launchpad community is dedicated to collaborating with and supporting each other as we learn, share and earn our way to success in our individual businesses or careers. If you are the sort of person who believes you get out what you put in, then this is the community for you.
THE BENEFITS OF BEING PART OF OUR COMMUNITY
Being part of a community of like-minded people is awesome. People just "get" you and what you're trying to do because they are trying to do it, too.
In addition you get:
Access to regular accountability and training meetings.
Access to our membership forum where you can chat and ask questions
Access to pre-recorded training and tutorial sessions and useful thinking frameworks
"Ask Me Anything" sessions
Help with crushing through the barriers, be they mindset, technological or whatever, that are stopping you achieving your goals
All that, plus access to the expertise others in the community have. And that, just by itself, is worth far more than the monthly membership fee, which...to use an old cliche...is equivalent to 1 "caffeine buzz" per day. Or a sweet pastry :-)
1 coffee per day costs...what...4 or 5 dollars? But you know what's priceless? The opportunity to experience the support that all of our members can give.
So exactly how much IS the membership? Remember that person I mentioned earlier who pays $2,000 a month for their mastermind? Well forget that. Our membership is just $97 a month. And for the peace of mind you'll get from being part of the group, that's a simple investment decision to make.
SO COME JOIN US!
We'd love to have you on board.
If you've already started a business, want to start a business or you're still deciding whether to stick with your career or start a business, you've come to the right place.
