"To be successful you need to develop collaborative, achievement driven, supportive relationships"
- Les Brown -
Never a truer word has been spoken in relation to starting your own business.
Being talented is NOT enough. Having a brilliant idea or concept is NOT enough. In fact knowing the answers isn't enough, after all how often have we known what to do but couldn't summon the courage to take the action.
If your vision is more important than your ego and personal pride. If you are open to learning and to take input from others. If you are determined to see your idea, dream, a vision fully realised the people you surround yourself with will be key.
Collaborate Forward is a monthly event for forward-thinking entrepreneurs ready to do what it takes to build the business they'd love. This is a community of relationship-centric individuals, focused, determined and collaborative in nature.
During this event you:
- Share a challenge or idea
- Seek input from the group on ideas, resources, experience
- Create a clear plan of action
- Connect with like-minded entrepreneurs
- Build your own powerful network
- Create powerful joint ventures
Through this event people have:
- created tagline's
- created marketing strategies
- found joint venture partners
- decided on the business idea to take forward
- created sales presentations which have won them clients
And much, much more....
Our Philosophy: Connect, Grow, Learn; we believe that within you is the wisdom to create the business of your dreams. All too often our fears, concerns, lack of knowledge and beliefs can form barriers which can be difficult to overcome alone. Surrounding ourselves with the right people who are interested in our success is key. Combine that with an intuitive business mentor to guide you and you're really on to something.
So, what's Collaborate Forward? Our approach is social by nature - why not build relationships whilst you build your business. We have a unique proven methodology to overcome your blocks, develop clarity of thought and plan next steps. We create a collaborative environment of action-oriented business owners focused on aiding you moving beyond limiting beliefs and fears to creating a success plan for the coming month. Consider it your ready made boardroom - what a gift.

When you started your business you were full of passion, excitement and determination to succeed, finding motivation wasn't a problem, it was almost as if you were being naturally pulled forward as ideas come to mind and the business came together.
But as time has past the reality of the hours, number of spinning plates and sheer tenacity required has begun to take it's toll. You have a number of foundations in place although most of the time all you can see is the mountain of things still to do. You're tired and relationships are strained . The dream is diminishing
