Coaches, Consultants, and Expert Problem Solvers...
You Have a Big Mission, But Feel Confused, Frustrated, and Overwhelmed Trying to Achieve It.
Are you a Passionate Introvert ready to come out of hiding, make the impact you dream of and create the success you deserve?
You Started Your Business with a Big Dream
have a gift -- a set of skills and talents you love to use have a mission -- you know in your heart you're called to serve others
have a dream -- you want to lead a change in the world
So why aren't you where you want to be?
You look at others who are achieving what you want to achieve and wonder "Why is it so hard for me?"
There's just SO much to do....so much to learn...so many opinions about what you should be doing and how you should be doing it...
You keep telling yourself that your past work and successes aren't important.
And to be honest, you sometimes get in your own way...
We second guess ourselves...feel we need to have everything figured out. NOW.
And since we're being honest, we have to admit that we often know what do do...we just don't do it...don't do it consistently...or take two steps forward and at least two steps back.
It's Time to Accept What's Truly Needed to Create the Business You Dream of -- Taking Consistent Action on the Right Stuff
The answer isn't outside of you. It's not in a book or a program. It's in you.
It's not about information. It's about implementation.
Learning and Behavior Change Take Support
As a teacher and former HR professional, I know that real learning doesn't take place in a classroom or from reading a book. That's just exposure to concepts.
Whether you're trying to learn a subject or a skill, true learning takes place when you attempt to apply the concepts, make mistakes, adjust, and try again.
From playing a sport to learning math to learning all the things that you've learned to become the expert you are. You had to apply concepts and make adjustments.
We learned from teachers, coaches, fellow students and team mates. We got feedback, adjusted, and kept moving forward.
Starting, growing, and running a business is no different.
Growing a Business Involves Learning and Applying New Skills
The Solution to Staying on Track:
The Courageous Entrepreneur Club
The Club is made of small groups of introverted solo professionals like you, all working to take their business to the next level of success and achieve their most important goal.
This isn't a workshop. It's not a self-study course. It's a unique combination of coaching, consulting, accountability, and training rolled into one.
It's designed specifically for the solo professional who needs and wants support as they work to develop and maintain success habits and reach their goals.
Here's what's included in your membership...
Courageous Action planning workshop ($297 value)
Each enrollment period kicks off with a planning workshop that's two half-day sessions. Day one is the macro or big picture session and Day two is the micro session where we focus on the next 12 weeks and really zero in on the 4 week session that's launching. These sessions help with clarity so you can resist Bright Shiny Object Syndrome and focus on the most important areas and actions.
Daily Accountability & Virtual Coaching
When you're crazy-busy, have self-doubt, or have a tendency to resist taking action then once-a-week or monthly check-ins are just not enough to keep you focused and moving forward. It takes -- consistent micro-movements -- to move towards completing your goal. You can move forward in just minutes a day.
Monthly Problem-Solving / Q&A Sessions
Live laser coaching sessions give you the chance to get specific questions answered, get feedback, or help you solve a problem. They also help you build relationships with other group members.
These fun sessions help you give focused time to your tasks and goals and yet feel supported because we're all on a web call together as we work. It's the fun of working with others but now it's with people you actually like.
Foundation Building Sprints
These are hybrids of work sprints and Q&A sessions. There's a little bit of training, a little laser coaching, and a little work sprinting. In the sprint, we focus on a specific aspect of either business building or authority building (otherwise known as "coming out of hiding" for us introverts).
Of course I'm not making you any promises, but I know I do my best to refer my clients and Club members to those who ask me for referrals and Club members refer each other too.
Secret Facebook Group
While I want you to be strategic about your Facebook use, I recognize it's where you go for information and connection. I share information I come across, exclusive videos I create, and encourage networking in the group. It's also a safe place to test things out ranging from sharing web copy for feedback to posting videos and even going live on our occasional Movie Monday events.
Just because we're introverts and ambiverts doesn't mean we're anti-social. We get together at least once a month for fun virtual networking parties to learn more about each other and to network with like-minded others.
Repeat the Courageous Action planning workshop ($297 value) as often as you're in the Club
Each 4-week session in the Club wraps up with the opportunity to attend the next running of the Courageous Action workshop. This allows you the focused time to tweak your goals and direction. Some Club members attend nearly every session to help them stay on track. Think of how many adjustments an airplane makes as it flies to its destination. You need adjustments too.
I'm known for giving Club members free training, bonus work sprint sessions, and even mailing them brownies :-)
"Putting me and my project first brings results..."
I'm noticing that NOW, because I am putting my primary focus on my BIG GOAL, monitoring progress using Winnie's system, celebrating all movements forward no matter how big or small, I'm in a better mood when working on our primary business. I'm more motivated and happy. This helps me think clearly and motivate the rest of the family in the business. It's a VERY good thing."

"Consistently reaching out has brought me work..."
Consistently reaching out to just a few people each day brought me referrals and projects. Finally launching my own successful podcast as brought me attention and positioned me as an authority. I'm also now teaching courses and have a recurring role with VAClassoom.com

I'll Bet We're a lot alike...
When I got laid off in 2008 I knew I couldn't go back to work for someone else. But I could barely convince enough people to work with me to survive financially.
I spent money I didn't have on certifications...courses....coaching...all to make me feel like I was good enough and smart enough. I became easily distracted by "bright shiny objects" and all the tools I thought I needed to learn.
I kept looking for the "thing"...the one thing that would give me that shortcut it seemed that others had taken.
But what I needed to do was admit that I had beliefs, conditioning, and strategies I had developed in my past that were no longer serving me.
I needed to consistently focus on the foundational basics of growing a business.
I needed to regain the confidence I had when I was in corporate life.
After decades as a corporate employee who'd worked for abusive bosses I also had to release the conditioning that caused me to question every decision I now needed to make -- and to take action.
Here are the Benefits Members Get...
The biggest benefit is the self-awareness that comes from turning into your thoughts, beliefs, and actions. No more overwhelm. Imagine the joy of being focused...what's the right, best thing to work on NOW.
Courage is taking action in spite of fear. Being part of a community that supports you helps you take action and move forward.
The Club helps you stay focused on your next-best step. You can reach your big goal through a series of daily micro movements.
A group of people who get YOU. Who understand your challenges. They'll celebrate with you, encourage you, and gently push you to take action.
You'll tune into what you say and do that holds you back and hurts you. You'll develop a healthy appreciation for the unique and fabulous person you really are!
Whether your goal is to grow revenue, launch a course, write a book, start a podcast, or just put yourself "out there" more, making micro movements every day gets you to finish what you start and helps you reach that next level of success.
"A judgment-free zone where you can be you..."
"I'm very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this group. There is no other place that I feel this safe expressing my inner-most concerns and state of affairs. "
Duncan Moss // Video Production and Marketing Expert, Moss Media Solutions
"I got 4 speaking engagements in 12 weeks..."
In the first three weeks I got more done and took more action than I have in years. In about 10 weeks I got 3 speaking engagements and just landed my 4th! (at the 12 week mark)."
