The Expert Membership
If You Want To Grow Your Business
You Need To Be Seen As The Expert!
And That’s Where The Expert Membership Comes In.
The Expert Membership is where service based business owners need to be to become the “go to” expert whilst ensuring your business is safe, sustainable and profitable.
Hosted by me, Catherine Gladwyn, I will guide you to become the expert in your field, ensuring that you are the number one provider people head to for your specific services.
If someone wants what you sell, everyone will think of you!
You want and you deserve a business where:
Quality new client leads come to you
You stop wasting your time with leads that don’t convert
You no longer negotiate your price – ever
You are seen as an expert
You no longer feel stuck
You have multiple income streams
You’re surrounded by a community of likeminded people who achieve and want you to achieve too
Now is the time to stop investing in other books, courses and memberships that are getting you no further forward.
This membership community and all its resources will help you focus on what matters; the things that will help you grow your business and be seen as the expert.
HERE’S WHAT YOU GET FOR YOUR INVESTMENT
You, me and your fellow members, will get together once every six weeks via Zoom to talk through everything and anything business related. From accountability and referrals to growth planning and getting new clients, nothing is off the table and these sessions will inspire you to keep on track.
You’ll receive one, one hour 1:1 call with me (annual members) or 20 minute 1:1 call (monthly members) so I can see where you are and where you want to be, which will ensure that my advice and support is always relevant to you.

Weekly Round Ups
If you’re busy being the expert you need to be and worry about missing any of the best bits, we’ve got that covered. At the end of every week, a round up will be sent with a synopsis of what’s happened and what’s coming up for you to digest in your own time.
Private Community Group
Facebook and Slack community group (you choose which you prefer – everything will be replicated)
THIS MEMBERSHIP IS ALL ABOUT GROWING YOUR BUSINESS AND YOUR REPUTATION SO THAT YOU CAN RELAX KNOWING YOU’RE SAFE. NO MORE FAMINE.
Every few weeks an expert in various fields will host a Zoom call for members to teach / share their expertise. Things that will enhance your business and help it grow.
You won’t be sold to, you won’t be spoken at, you’ll learn. I’ll be the one paying them for their time. Find out who’s booked here.
HERE’S JUST SOME OF WHAT YOU’LL BE SUPPORTED WITH AS A MEMBER
A Bespoke Plan
By setting goals that are achievable and putting them into a plan, you’ll be able to keep on track. We’re all different, but there’s one thing we all don’t need and that’s overwhelm.
You’ll see how to create various income streams that work, that are sustainable, that sell, that people want to buy!
By having a clear plan, you won’t feel exhausted by all you have to do anymore. You’ll know what needs doing when and a team around you to help. Investment is the key to move forward.
You’ll learn to create minimal lead magnets that actually convert. Your time is money, you don’t want to be giving everything away for free.
Bank Of Leads
You’ll continuously work on your bank of leads and potential buyers, in a variety of ways, with ease – some you may never have even considered.
Your Time Is Money
You’ll start appreciating that your time is money and others will too. You need to stop giving your time for free.
You’ll only be investing where it matters. As a qualified bookkeeper I’ll help you to realise where your investments need to be and what’s taking you further away from your goals.
You’ll no longer feel paralysed or tongue tied by content and know exactly what to say to ensure your online presence is consistent and relevant.
THE EXPERT MEMBERSHIP IS EXCLUSIVELY FOR BUSINESS OWNERS WHO WANT TO THRIVE
You’re a service based business owner and you’ve been in business for at least twelve months. You’re not looking to be a business owner, you are one!
You know you’re not going to turn things around overnight or make a quick buck, you understand that sustaining a viable business takes hard work and commitment, but you also know you can’t do it all and are perhaps fed up with working all the hours and seeing little return.
You know things need to change but either don’t know where to start or can’t seem to find the focus.
Because of constant overwhelm and everything you have to do, you’re also likely one or maybe all of the following:
Reliant on too few clients and don’t know how to get recurring hot leads
Reliant on too few income streams or too many and none are selling
Unable to keep up with marketing / don’t know where to start
Fearful that everything could disappear overnight as the business isn’t sustainable
Not seen as the expert in your field, more a Jack of all trades with mixed messaging
Investing in everything but getting nowhere
My biggest issue is seeing people struggle when there is always a solution and that’s why I have evolved my services to help others grow their business and have preventative solutions in place to ensure that the worst case scenarios never happen.
I’ve built a business that is safe, sustainable and profitable.
I’ve tested it by having an involuntary four months off recovering from brain tumour surgery with no loss of income. I’ve also come through the Coronavirus pandemic without my revenue being affected.
Because I work to The 20% Rule® and I have a variety of income streams. In addition to this, I’ve positioned myself as an expert in my field, have a supportive and flexible team and yet never work to capacity!
I’ve invested in myself over the years and see the value of doing so, the rewards always outweigh the investment, but lately I’ve been frustrated that many memberships treat their community like children, with so many rules, regulations and ‘don’t do this’ stipulations. We’re adults, we’ve built businesses and we don’t need to be led by a set of rules. We need support to achieve our goals and dreams, and we need a community of likeminded committed people around us to help us get there.
That’s what my membership offers. It’s not just another place to hang out, it’s a place where stuff gets done and goals are.
You Want To Know The Price, Don’t You?
My membership is £97.00 a month, but founding members can join for £77 a month for life before 31st August 2020.

Some Questions You Might Have
Who is the membership for?
Service based business owners who have been in business for a minimum of six months.
If you’re not yet a business owner you’re not quite ready.
I need people who know what’s involved in running a successful business, it’s not a quick way to make money. It takes hard work and a lot of time and you don’t really get a feel for that until you’ve been doing it for a few months, at least.
Can I pay annually?
Yes, of course. Email me for a link: firstname.lastname@example.org
I've already launched my business, is this group for me?
Yes, 100%! In fact, it was designed for you.
I am only accepting business owners who have been in business a minimum of six months.
How long will I have access to the online resources and community?
For as long as your subscription is active.
How much time do I need to allocate to the membership?
You’ll get out what you put in. If you invest a couple of hours a week, you should start to make progress quickly. If you only dip in to the community and resources now and again your progress will be slower.
What if I join mid year?
You can join at anytime, the learning and support is not on a cycled schedule.
A bit more about that free consultation.
The FREE call when you join (20 minutes for monthly members / 1 hour for annual members) is so I can understand where your business is now, and where you want to be. This helps me to help you get there.
Sadly, it’s become necessary for me to write this extra bit… If you do not turn up for the free call / have given me less than 24 hours notice there won’t be the opportunity to re-book.
My time is just as important as yours.
What if I join and it's not for me?
Then I’ll get you in a headlock until you agree to stay! No, I won’t!
I’d be gutted to lose you as I really hope I can make a difference, but I also know I can’t please everyone. If you sign up as a monthly member, you can stop your membership at any time. If you opt for the annual fee and contact me within 30 days, I will issue a refund if you are genuinely not happy. The 30 days should not be seen as a trial period as the annual membership is for those with a genuine commitment to optimising the resources and learning. Please note that deductions may be made if you have signed up and received any free joining incentives (such as a 1-2-1 consultation, book, discount off any other products or services). If you choose to stop your membership you will no longer have access to any of the resources.
From my own personal experience of paid memberships it takes a few months to find your feet and get into a new routine, plus nothing happens overnight!
