Business Planning Made Easy: DIY Business Retreat and Online Consultancy Package


LYSB’s Business Planning Made Easy ‘DIY Business Retreat’ and Online Consulting Package


Did you love the idea of running your own small business but now that you are actually doing it the reality is somehow different?

Do you often:

  • Feel pulled in so many directions you don’t know which way to go?
  • Want to develop and grow your business but don’t know how to proceed?
  • Truly believe your business has potential but feel frustrated by your apparent lack of progress?
  • Feel lonely and isolated, without the support you need to make it work?
  • Have a feeling that you are merely ‘playing’ at running a business without a real commitment to making it work?
  • Wish you could get help in the areas of the business where you lack confidence or skills, like sales and marketing or employee issues?
  • Hate to admit to yourself that you are not enjoying your business as much as you had hoped?

You are not alone in facing these challenges. Our research has shown that many women who lead and manage in small businesses struggle with the same issues.

If you want to overcome these challenges and get the results you really want out of your business AND you want to do it without compromising on your health, balance or integrity, you are in the right place.


Our Business Planning Made Easy DIY Retreat and Online Consulting Package is specifically designed to address common issues faced by women in small business.

It will empower you to:

  • Create your Business Plan (or complete it if you have an unfinished one lying on a shelf somewhere!)
  • Gain clarity about the vision and direction of your business;
  • Create a clear strategy for business growth;
  • Grow your business and increase revenue;
  • Focus on how your personal values and purpose in life are aligned with what you do in your business;
  • Strengthen your relationships with the stakeholders in your business, including your clients;
  • Identify and overcome the barriers and limiting beliefs that are stopping you from getting the results you want in your business
  • Enjoy marketing and selling your business so that you can attract more clients;
  • Capture all those visionary ideas you have for your business and help you figure out how to put them into action;
  • Find guidance, suppliers and mentors who can help you grow your business;
  • Clarify the myriad roles you take on in your business;
  • Have less stress and more balance in your life;
  • Develop a clear action plan to make it happen!

If this sounds like something you need in your business , then TAKE ACTION NOW!

After nearly 8 years of owning our business, my business partner and I were finally able to put down on paper our purpose, values and vision! We had over the years tried to do this this, but this all-encompassing programme brought in our own personal beliefs and goals to work in with our business goals. We were both at ease and excited with our business vision and goals as they are aligned to our own personal values and where we wanted to exist within our community.

Perhaps you are thinking…..

“Sounds great but will it really work?’
“I need this but I can’t afford it!’
“Could be good but I’m far too busy right now!”

We have been in the same position and we understand your concerns. It takes courage to invest money in yourself and really make leaps in your business. Often we think the money is better spent elsewhere. Or we create barriers for ourselves that can limit or prevent us from reaching our true potential.

We are not saying that your concerns aren’t legitimate, but if you are reading this page you probably have issues in your business that need addressing. We are encouraging you to question the reasons why you are not taking action to address the concerns you have for your business.

Plus, we are very confident that our programme will deliver the results you are after and that it will do so in a way that is aligned with your values and what you want out of life.

If you complete our programme and take action on what you create YOU WILL come out the other side with a more balanced life and the ability to create the income you desire from your business. So, if you are really serious about making your business work for you instead of the other way around, then you owe it to yourself to at least find out more about our programme. We encourage you to read every word of this page then make your decision!


What exactly does the Business Planning Made Easy package offer?

Here are some of the hidden ‘gems’ you will find in our program:

  • Seven interactive ‘workshops’ where you can access our consultancy services online at a time, pace and place convenient for you. Each workshop represents approximately a half-day of face-to-face consultancy time.

  • Participation in an exciting new online consulting tool – one of the first of its kind on the internet!

  • 1-2-1 feedback and support online from us, your personal business consultants

  • A pioneering new approach to business management that tackles issues at a deeper level to create long-term, transformational change for you and your business. This program is not a quick fix that will fizzle out!

  • Adventurous and playful exercises that will get you out of the office and into nature. These activities are designed to help you tap into your ‘inner wisdom’ and experience so that you can develop innovative solutions for your business

  • The importance of connecting your personal values and vision for your life with your business strategy and most importantly HOW you can do this!

  • The option to complete your workshops online or to head off on your own DIY business ‘retreat’ somewhere beautiful and inspiring

  • Tools for creating a clear strategy and an action plan to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

  • A management approach that you can use repeatedly to deepen your understanding of your business purpose and vision and clarify your strategy for success. We recommend you do this at least once a year so this programme pays for itself over and over again!

The modules were easy to work through with small steps leading towards revealing incredible results. The modules also helped us come up with other avenues related to our business which we had not already previously looked at- one of these is now underway to be launched in 2011.

Why choose us as your consultants?

There are hundreds of management consultants out there, so why should you spend your precious time and energy with us?

Between us we have 15 years of experience managing and developing people and leaders. We have taken our experience and combined it with thousands of $$$ worth of training in a variety of management techniques to provide you with a package specifically designed for women in small business.

We have spent the past year researching, designing and testing our package and we have talked to many women in small businesses. Thanks to their feedback and input we are very confident that our online consulting package is full of great tools and delivered at a price that is convenient and affordable for women in small business. We understand the potential barriers that can block women in small business from having access to consultancy services, and have devised solutions to over come these.

We pay attention to creating real change at a deeper level in your business. Our processes quickly address the challenges you face by going to the root or core of the problems. We do this by using creative and ‘whole-person’ tools that access your inner wisdom and knowledge, working at the level of personal purpose, values and assumptions. This is a pioneering approach and quite a shift from traditional business management approaches and according to our clients, it really works.

We do not intend to come in and tell you what to do, nor will we pretend that we are the experts in your business – that is your job. Instead, we provide you with empowering tools to help you tap into the knowledge, experience and creativity you already have within you to create innovative solutions for your business. Better still, these tools will not only benefit your business but improve your life too. That’s why we do it!

We acknowledge that it can be a real challenge to integrate what you learn during training or workshops back into your business. So….. we specialize in solutions and support that effectively transfer your learning back into the ‘real’ world – your workplace

Our approach is NOT a quick fix and we are open about that. We acknowledge that sometimes real change can be difficult and we encourage you to take time out of your busy life to really question and reflect. By doing this, you are empowered to work through change in your business in a healthier and more conscious way.

PLUS we offer a 100% 30 day money-back guarantee on all our programmes.

This means you can sign up and feel safe in the knowledge that you can get your money back, in full, if our package does not live up to your expectations. You have nothing to lose!


How and Why We Offer Such Great Value for Money

We are passionate about making management consultancy accessible to women in small businesses because we believe that they make a vital contribution to our economy and our communities. We strongly believe that women in small business deserve to know about all the exciting, innovative and pioneering new approaches to business management being developed around the world.

Why should only big business and large corporations, who can afford to employ expensive consultants, have access to these new ways of working?

Management consultants usually charge between $1000 – $2500 per day to bring their expertise to your business. As you probably know, this kind of money is out of reach to most women operating a small business. Our program represents great value for money because we have taken the training and tools we would normally deliver to you face-to-face at your business (at considerable cost to you) and packaged a solution that we can deliver online.

We believe we have done this without compromising on the outcomes or the quality of our consultancy service.

When you consider that our package contains 7 interactive workshops, each of which represents around a half day of consultancy time, you start to get an idea of the saving. The 7 interactive workshops alone could cost at least $4500 if delivered face-2-face. Compared with the average consultancy fee it is a massive saving!

Plus we are currently offering great bonus support and guidance with our package, at no extra cost to you.


Bonus Support and Guidance

As we tested the program we realised there was still more that we could do to support you to achieve your vision for your business and your life. In fact we had so many ideas it was a challenge to narrow them down! We have picked 3 of the best and put the others aside for future development…..



Tired of sitting at your desk all day? Dying to get out of the office?

At LYSB we believe that getting out of the office every now and then can encourage creative thinking and promote innovation. That’s why we have created an online consultancy package that can also be completed offline!

Want to head off somewhere beautiful and inspiring to work on your business? This guide shows you how. Use it to turn your LYSB online consultancy package into an  ‘offline’ business retreat. You will receive an easy step-by-step guide, including:

  • Instructions on how to complete our online package ‘offline’ to create your own DIY business retreat;
  • Easy and affordable ideas for where you can go on your retreat;
  • What you need to think about before you go;
  • A check-list of what you will need to take;
  • A flexible ‘retreat outline’ with ideas for how to structure your time while you are away;
  • Activities you might like to do while on retreat that will complement the work you are doing on your business;



valued at $127

An opportunity for a direct 1:2:1 phone call with Janine or Jo from LYSB

We know that working through a transformational package such as this is exciting and invigorating… but we also know that at times it can be overwhelming!

For that reason, when you invest in yourself and your business with this complete package, you will receive a 30 minute emergency support call. Use it at a time when you just need specific help to overcome an obsticle, need motivation, or simply a confidence booster.


3 Months Complimentary Membership of the LYSB Forum

(valued at $47 per month)

We want to provide women who sign up to our online consultancy package with regular ongoing support and resources. That’s why we are offering a complimentary 3 month membership to our exciting new *Magic Circle* Business Forum. On our forum you will:

  • connect with other women in small business;
  • receive monthly group coaching designed to keep you on track in your business
  • learn how others are overcoming challenges and solving problems in their businesses;
  • access a range of resources and expertise only available to members of our Magic Circle, including guest experts

So where to from here?

Congratulations on reading this far – we know it is a lot of information to absorb but we want to be sure that you have all the information you need to feel confident in your decision. We’d also like to address some of the concerns you might be having right now, such as……

“I don’t have the time”

We understand that women in small business are busy people, who have a life outside the business. Often, they are simply run off their feet trying to meet everyone’s needs, let alone their own!  However, we ask you to also consider this question:

What is the risk to your health, your relationships and your business if you don’t invest the time now to address your business challenges?

Ultimately you will save time. If you don’t have a clear strategy and focus for your work, you can spend a lot of unnecessary time going off track, working on things that feel important but that are not actually moving you towards your goal or vision. Investing a small amount of time now will have multiple benefits for you and your business in the long run because the time you do spend working will be focused, purposeful and effective.

We have designed our workshops so you can move through them at a time and pace that  works  for you.

“I can’t afford to pay”

We recognise that this is an investment but we believe that the value you will get means that program pays for itself over and over. The added bonuses mean you are getting incredible value for money. Even working through one of the workshops alone would undoubtedly add value to your business. We have also addressed this by creating an easy payment plan so you can pay in installments rather than in one large sum.

“I’m not sure about working with a consultant online”

We are aware that most consultancy work takes place face to face, and at the outset were mindful that we didn’t want to lose the impact of this program by delivering it online. We understand this hesitation because we felt the same thing when we first moved from face-2-face consulting – to phone consulting – to ‘remote’ online consulting! We were both worried that for some reason, the quality of the coaching we could offer would be compromised without that personal contact you get when you see someone face-2-face.

However, feedback from our clients indicates that the online delivery (or the out of the office package if you choose to go down that path) is highly effective in delivering the outcomes of the program without compromising on quality, and in fact adds to the ease of use for our clients. Online consulting also has several advantages over face-2-face delivery:

  • It is flexible – you can complete the workshops at a time and place convenient for you. Sometimes it can be quite a relief to know you don’t have to worry about scheduling in face-2-face workshops or training days with your consultant but can complete the work at your leisure and at your own pace.
  • Online consulting eliminates travel time and cost, making it great for busy people
  • You can be receive consultancy services from the comfort of your own home, or anywhere else you desire!
  • Online consulting is empowering because you are totally in control of the process. Working through change in your business can be a challenging process as we confront our fears and limiting beliefs – for some people, ‘remote’ consultancy is less threatening and scary and makes the first step that much easier. Our online service puts you in control. If you want to give it a go on your own first, you can. Whilst we are always available to support and coach you online, you can choose when and how you want to utilise us!

Please do not let your fears or assumptions about online coaching be a barrier to your decision to try our program. Remember, we offer a 100% money back guarantee so if it isn’t for you, you get your money back and you haven’t lost anything by giving it a go.

As a small business owner of nearly ten years I’m always on the lookout for ways to improve how I work. Over the years I’ve tried a number of coaching, mentor and business development tools, all of which I’ve taken something from but none of which have compelled a new, better way of doing business on a sustainable basis.

I was given the opportunity to complete the online consulting package this year and I haven’t looked back since. I knew Janine and Jo would have a lot to offer, but when I was working through the package I was able to really see in practice the value of their skills. As we worked through the course we were finally able to articulate our values, purpose and vision in a way that truly resonated with us and gave us the perfect direction for our business- something that we’ve struggled with for years. We’ve recognised how aligned our business is with our personal goals and this has injected a new passion in our business which has always been lingering but never lit!

I can proudly say I’ve never been so happy about the direction the business is taking and what our business stands for than I am right now. Janine and Jo have given us the tools to enable a good business to become a great business and for that I’m extremely grateful. Many thanks to your both for what you’ve done for us so far!

The investment you will need to make to get these results…

We are offering a complete online consulting package that will help you create alignment between who you are and what you do at work. We’ll also support you to do it step-by-step and show you how you can use what you learn to create a clear strategy for business success.

Just imagine sitting down for a cup of coffee at your favorite café a few weeks from now, relaxed and content in the knowledge that things are on track for you in your business, perhaps thinking to yourself “work is great and I’m finally making some money and not feeling stressed about it!” or “I can’t believe this is really happening for me why didn’t I do it sooner?”

On top of this, you have developed the confidence to know that you are delivering great results for your clients and creating new opportunities for your business in an enjoyable way that is getting results.

We promise that if you really commit to our program and to taking action on the solutions you come up with, THIS CAN HAPPEN FOR YOU! And if you are like many women starting out or struggling in small business and worried about what it is going to cost you, we understand. That is why we have created flexible, easy payment options.


This Profit with Purpose Consulting Package contains the following:

  • 7 interactive online workshops, comparable to over  $4500 of face-2-face managment consultancy
  • 1-2-1 feedback and support online from us, your personal business consultants
  • 3 months complimentary membership to our online forum with access to expertise and resources, other women in small business and ideas for further business success, valued at $29 per month
  • An Emergency Support Call that you can redeem at a time of your choosing when you need additional support or motivation, valued at $99.
  • DIY Business Retreat Guide so you can access your creativity out of the office, valued at $39

All this comes to a total value of over $4635 – a price that would be out of reach for most women in small business. We are passionate about bringing these tools to as many people as possible so want to offer this package for far less than that. On the flip side, this work requires energy and an investment of time, so we are not interested in working with clients who want to pay a quick buck for a quick fix!

We believe we have found a fair price that acknowledges the huge value you will gain from this program and values the content we have created whilst keeping our package affordable for women in small businesses.

The total cost of our package is usually $1497US but for a short time we are providing the opportunity to purchase the entire consultancy package for a:


Limited to the first 10 clients to register.

In the words of one client…

Remember, the “launch special” price for the complete consulting package is limited to our first 10 clients, after which time it will only be available at $1497 US. This is still a great price and we offer a 30 day money back guarantee so if you are keen, why wait?

We stand 100% behind the program that we are offering you. If you do purchase the consulting package and you decide you don’t like it, then you can ask for your money back anytime within the first 30 days. All we ask is that you let us know what it was about the program that didn’t work for you – that way we can take what we learn from you and use it to improve our program.

So, are you ready? Your new Vision for your Life and Your Business is Waiting!

We look forward to working with you.

Warm wishes,

Janine Ogg and Jo Foster @LoveYourSmallBusiness
