Hi, I’m Claire and I’m the founder of The Girls Mean Business®, a place full of wonderful resources to help small businesses grow.

Women business owners often have a lot more to deal with than just the business. It’s not unusual for the amazing women I work with to be holding down jobs, raising a family, caring for elderly parents or dealing with their own health issues (or all of the above) and ALL while trying to build their business. So, if you’re in the same boat don’t worry. I can help.

I get it. I’m a home-schooling mum to my 11-year-old daughter. Our house is chaos, I’m frequently exhausted and I don’t know where the time goes BUT I’ve built a very successful business and I can help you do the same in fact, I’ve been helping small business owners with marketing, sales, productivity and confidence since 2005.

Through my planners, classes, academy, blogs, videos and podcasts you’ll find loads of inspiration and support to get through the tough times, deal with the fears and mind monkeys and grow your gorgeous business. I promise you can do this.

Love, Claire xx

How To Think Like Your Super Customer

How To Think Like Your Super Customer

A lovely accountant on my Brilliant Business Academy Q&A call recently was feeling as flat as a pancake.

She said “Claire, I know what I should do, I just can’t bring myself to do it. When it comes to posting on Facebook or writing a blog my mind just goes blank and I lose all my enthusiasm.”

Do you know what? I hear this all the time. It’s not that she doesn’t love her business – she does, she just can’t get into marketing.

Do you know what I did that really helped her?…

How To Get More Control Over Your Sales

I was chatting to a lady the other day and she said ‘Claire, this business is bad for my nerves and my blood pressure. One day it’s fine, I have money in the business and then within days it’s all gone on staff costs, supplies and other bills. Then we have a quiet period with no money coming in and no idea when it will start again.

I love the way Claire is positive whilst still being honest and realistic. Claire’s podcasts are great – I listen to them while I’m walking the dog so instead of worrying about pointless stuff, I have ideas and am in a positive frame of mind for the day. In 6 years of running this business (which I kind of fell into whilst escaping my proper job as a primary school teacher!) this is the first time that I have a long term plan (with options!) and feel that I have taken charge, rather than feeling like I’m just drifting along. Thanks Claire

Whenever I feel like giving up on my business, I listen to one of the modules in Claire’s courses. Her positivity and enthusiasm is contagious and her advice never fails to get me back on track again.

I just wanted to come back to you and say thank you. I have been going for almost 8 years now and for the last 6 years I have implemented all you have taught through your courses and general good advice… So a big thank you for your inspiration and consistent commitment for being there all the time. You have made a massive difference to me and my business.
