There has been no better time to own a business that lights you up and impacts millions, but I’m going to cut to the chase...

Your business needs a steady stream of clients (the right ones) and cashflow before any of this impact is possible.

My team and I see too many coaches, consultants and professional service providers focussing on the wrong things when trying to grow their online business...

First, too many are stuck in a cycle of consuming information. They’re signing up for all of the freebies, webinars, e-books and cheap courses… (hey, I’ve been there too!)

Second, they’re focussed on the stunning photoshoots, fancy websites, blogging, endless posting and live-streaming every day, attending pointless networking events and hustling to find clients... Many have even dabbled in paid advertising (which can feel a lot like venturing into a black hole)!

… but still no results.

You see, some of these activities are great from a brand-building perspective but they wont give you the financial predictability you need for your business to truly thrive.

We believe your business is just a vehicle to get your purpose-work out into the world in a big way…

…but a real, sustainable business needs consistency, a predictable strategy and passion. Without this, it’s easy to become burnt-out trading time for money, restless and frankly, broke.

You’ve got big work to do in the world. So let’s get the money taken care of, shall we?

Taran's Story - Yoga & Wellbeing Teacher

Taran was still in her day job when we started working together and she was selling one-off yoga classes at her local studio.

Since working together, Taran has restructured her business model and now runs two successful businesses. She has quit her 9-5 and delivers high end luxury retreats all over the world. She also delivers yoga programs in schools and online.

Taran has recently hired a team of 6 employees, moved to Europe with her partner and secured coverage in a luxury travel magazine. She has also recently celebrated a $40k month. We also just mapped out her first million-dollar year.

She is also fundraising and leading The Village Project in India where she is creating a women's centre and a school for the local community. She has also bought land in India where she intends to build a new yoga studio! Profit, purpose, impact...


Introducing Thrive Academy

Thrive is designed for the woman who is ready to scale to 6-figures (and beyond) in her business.

At Thrive Academy, we will challenge you to go to the next level both in your results and as a leader. Thrive Academy is our signature, 3 month business accelerator that is packed full of one-of-a-kind, high touch support. This unique program combines intimate group coaching with private support with our Founder, Amanda, and her team of experts.

Here’s what we will focus on:

  • Building you a sustainable business model, so you have longevity in your industry (stop trading time for money)!

  • How to create leveraged services and programs that allow scale, flexibility and less hustle in your business

  • Creating offers that sell at the right price (an art and a science) - no more undercharging!

  • Finding and attracting the right clients into your programs and offerings

  • Strategies to communicate your real value to the marketplace and what makes you the only choice for your clients

  • Mastering online marketing (both paid and unpaid) and most importantly… how to calculate an ROI so you can create predictability and consistency

  • Getting your mind, leadership skills and energy right, so you’re better equipped to deal with the new challenges associated with growth

  • Mastering the sales process (no sleaze, slime or weirdness involved - promise!)


Who we can help…

We serve coaches, consultants and professional service-providers who are incredible at what they do. We can only support people who genuinely care about their clients and operate with high degrees of professionalism and integrity.

We are experts in helping transformational, service-based businesses thrive. Unfortunately we are not designed to support product-based, e-commerce businesses or MLMs.

Does any of this sound familiar:

  You're great at what you do, but you’re not attracting the right clients or enough clients…   You have made some sales in your business, but not enough and you don’t really know where your next client is coming from.  Perhaps you’re having to compromise who you’re working with (ie., clients who drain you and don’t get results), just to pay the bills.  You’re living month to month feeling constricted energetically because the clients are not finding their way to you in the right numbers.

You’re living month to month feeling constricted energetically because the clients are not finding their way to you in the right numbers.

  You might still be working in a 9-5 job because your business hasn’t quite taken off (yet)…   Many of our clients were still working in their 9-5 job (or stuck trading time for money) before they joined our program. Maybe you’re in this situation too?  Our clients have real responsibilities (family, bills) so quitting was not an option until they could replace their salary consistently.  If you're ready to turn your passion or side-hustle into a full-time reality, you need a strategy and proven action steps to get you there quicker.

You're ready to show up coachable to start hitting $10k + months so you can have the freedom-based life you want.  You also know  real  businesses have marketing, people and development budgets. You’re prepared to invest provided you have the right strategy.

 Over 81% of our clients who were in a 9-5, quit their job after 3 months of working together. Why? Because their business was finally thriving…

What worked in online business 12 months ago no longer works. Having the support of someone who has their finger on the pulse of what works, what doesn't (and what's a gimmick) is vital...


Have we met?

IMG_1301.JPG

Hi, I'm Amanda Davies and I help entrepreneurs like you be a force for good, lead by example and live life on their terms.

With over 15 years experience in helping businesses (of all sizes) grow and make change happen, I know that success requires a combination of business strategy, psychology, energy and purpose. I support my clients in bringing all of these juicy elements together. I truly love what I do!

I’ve helped hundreds of women scale their businesses so the point where they feel lit-up, excited and ready to take on the world…

We all want to do what we were put on this earth to do - earn a good living, take care of our families, and make a positive difference for others. Thrive Academy is one of the ways I help people do just that.

So why me? Well, I've been exactly where you are now. I went from a career-confused mess, to multiple 6-figure business owner on my own terms and making the finals in the National Business Awards here in the UK - I was shortlisted down to 8 finalists out of thousands of nominees. I'm proof that an ordinary woman can create something out of the box and pretty extraordinary.

But it's not just about me. My clients are seeing incredible results too...

Katie's Story - Zen Within

Katie was a senior manager in her busy 9-5 when we started working together. She was running her therapeutic business from home, selling one off sessions and running small group workshops in her local town.

After working together and using the techniques I teach around online marketing and social media, Katie has re-structured her business and opened the doors to her Academy program - she also sold out her first group program in record time!

Katie has tripled her prices and quadrupled her list size - she has a constant flow of new leads (and paying clients) coming in to her business every month. She's left her full-time 9-5 job and is now 100% focussed on serving her dream clients who desperately need her services.

She hasn't looked back.


Growing a business should be fun and allow you to feel connected and in flow. It's about sharing your gifts and passions to make a difference in the world… but it’s also about creating a sustainable income and scalability.


Here's why Thrive is different

We focus on the must-have essentials.

No more fluff, overwhelm or learning about a bunch of stuff that doesn't really move the needle in your business (like many other programs out there). We've tried and tested everything in Thrive, which is how we know it works. We have distilled years of business experience into 3 months of essential content. We've also built-in specific Accountability Tasks / Milestones to help you stay on track and measure your progress. 

You'll receive training from an entire team of industry experts.

You'll receive support not just from me, but also receive training from my team of industry leading experts. No one person can be an absolute master in all areas of business, so I've called in the best of the best to help you. 

It's designed specifically for busy women. 

Thrive is about helping you focus on the business building activities that count, which is exactly what you need if you're a busy mum, studying and/or still working a 9-5 job at the same time! This is about helping you 'work less' in the long run and putting structures in place that allow your business to work for you...

We're qualified to support your mindset. 

Strategy can only get you so far. 80% of success stems from the mind - mastering fear, procrastination or emotions as they come up is critical when building and scaling your business. I am a registered psychologist and an expert in helping people overcome stumbling blocks and fear. Many other coaches work with mindset on a superficial level, but we go deep with you to ensure you truly see your brilliance. 

This is about becoming a purpose-led leader.

You'll be supported to become more visible and confident in delivering your message (and that doesn't just mean showing up on Facebook Live, by the way). You'll learn to build a community of raving fans and, more importantly, eager buyers. Plus you'll learn how to structure your future team so you have the support you need to grow. 

It's personal.

At Thrive we offer a very unique program structure. You get the support of an intimate community of like-minded women and personal, hands-on guidance from me. I love getting under the hood of my client's businesses.

Many other coaches follow a "cookie cutter" methodology - they teach everyone the same method (often focussed on the wrong things) without any real discussion or flex around what's going to work for you

Your success is in the finer detail.

You have ample opportunity to ask questions on the group calls, our private calls, via email and in the online Facebook group - this isn't a group program where you get lost in among hundreds of people, or an impersonal e-course! You'll thrive in a small, intimate group environment where you get plenty of personal support.

It's this level of support that makes the difference to your results. Fact.

This program is unlike anything I have ever seen before. I’d tried all the coaches, courses and workshops imaginable. Thrive is completely different to anything I have ever experienced and working with Amanda has changed my life, not just my business
— Rebecca (Career Coach for Mums)

Sarah's Story - Public Relations Expert

Before we started working together, Sarah was working in her 9-5 PR job and seeing clients sporadically on the side. She was relying on word-of mouth and referrals and lacked consistency around how and when she was going to book the next client. Her bank account was suffering as a result.

After a week of working together Sarah booked her first premium client (thanks to a dramatic mindset shift) and then her success snowballed from there! Now, her program is fully booked, she has consistent prospect calls and understands how to scale her business.

Sarah is now making the money she desires in her business (upwards of $7k per month) and has just handed in her notice so she can do what she loves full-time!


Together we will...

◾️ Compress your timeline to success so you can see exactly how you're going to reach your financial goals ($10k + per month) meaning you can scale your business faster - rather than continue to play the business 'guessing game' on your own.

◾️ Look at those parts of yourself that you may still be hiding. I usually find messaging and visibility are huge blind spots for many struggling entrepreneurs. We'll help you identify your unique combination of gifts, skills and talents and how to leverage these to stand out in a sea of sameness!

◾️ Create premium offers that actually sell. This includes the secret ingredient that so many others miss!

◾️You'll learn to confidently communicate what you do and learn to sell with ease, so you become the best and only choice for your prospects. 

◾️ Design and deliver your online marketing strategy using a proven method to grow leads and makes sales - consistently.

◾️ Set-up flagship offers and make high-ticket sales (even if you're just starting out).

◾️ Discover how to manage overwhelm and the millions of things you have on your To-Do list.

◾️ Explode your visibility online and build your brand so you can become a recognised leader in your industry.

◾️ Help you step into your authority and build your confidence once more.

◾️ Grow your community and your team to help you achieve even bigger results.

Clare's Story - Online Business Manager & VA

Before we started working together, Clare was selling ad-hoc VA services at low hourly rates and was struggling to find clients and make a consistent, high-level monthly income. She was also still in her 9-5 job.

Clare has now completely transformed her business model since working together and has built her confidence around selling and charging higher rates for her work.

In fact she's been so successful, Clare has recently quit her 9-5 job to focus on her business full-time as she has now replaced her professional salary.

Clare is now attracting dream clients with consistency and working fewer hours because of the new business model we have helped her implement. Her confidence has sky-rocketed!

Patty's Story - Life Coach

Patty was in a busy management consulting job when we first started working together. She also has two young children and very little time.

Patty spent many years feeling that she 'was meant for more' and was trying to piece her new business together on the side, without a clear understanding of what she was offering or who she was here to serve through her work.

During our time together, she started to apply a professional end-to-end system to her business which allowed her to book consistent, high-paying 1:1 clients who invest thousands to work with her. She also sells out her in-person workshops and has now quit her 9-5!

Patty has more time and freedom to spend with her daughters, travels regularly (including trips to see her extended family in Columbia)!

Your questions answered

Q: WHEN DOES THE PROGRAM START?

A: As long as there are spaces available, you can get started immediately!

You will get access to the Orientation Program as soon as you sign up, plus you'll be registered for the upcoming calls. You'll also gain access to our private Facebook community before the program starts. We do cap enrolment numbers, but we will let you know if doors are temporarily closed.

Q: What if I don't have any idea what kind of business I'd like to create, should I already know that first?

A: This is for you if you are ANY of the following:

  • Have already started your own personal brand/online business, but could really use further personal and business growth to get over any blocks, fears and resistance that's coming up as you progress further and further, as well as learning and implementing the systems and strategies to expand your business, income, and impact in the world

  • You've seen some success in your business, but you have a lot more to give. You're ready for full impact.

  • You may still be in a 9-5 and your business (or business idea) is more of a side-hustle at the moment. You're ready to take it full time.

  • You're ready to be earning consistent cash in your business as well as creating an impact.

Q: I just don't have the money right now, what's your ADVICE?

A: I’ve been there too and so have my clients (none of whom were millionaires when they signed up)!

Money is always an important topic and I get it. I grew up fairly poor and even to this day, I run a lean business. I lovingly watch every penny because I care about where my money (and subsequently my energy) goes. I've built this business from the ground up without handouts or a rich family supporting me.

I started my company in the red. I was tens of thousands of dollars in debt - including student loans and credit cards. Know that I do not take your financial investment in the Academy lightly. I honour the commitment and responsibility.

That’s why I’ve taken a strong stand to offer lifetime access to the Academy, which means that you get access to all of the materials and a buzzing Alumni Group, for free. I also offer a flexible payment plan that you can sign up to.

I've also kept the investment for the program fairly low, despite people telling me it’s worth a lot more or that I’m missing out because I give everyone lifetime access. While I'm a business person, kindness and generosity are what drive all of my decisions.

For now, know this. None of my clients were 'rich' or just had the money laying around (if they did, they wouldn't need my help)! Get resourceful and think about how you can make the investment. Remember, business coaching and consulting is classed as a business expense and is tax deductible in most countries (although check with your accountant to be sure).

Here are some ideas: 

- Credit cards (increase the limit, apply for a new one or split the payment between several cards). 

- PayPal loans.

- Line of credit.

- Borrow it.

- Small business loans.

- Sell stuff (the average person has between $2000 - $5000 worth of old hobby equipment etc)

- Book an extra 1:1 client or two.

- Ask for a repayment from someone who owes you.

- Find someone who will invest in you.

Although investing may feel like a step back financially, it's designed to grow your business quickly - investment debt is very different to consumer debt. Investing is a very normal part of being a serious business owner. 

If you’re feeling called to do this program, but you’re worried about the investment, drop me an email and we can explore some options together! Money should not stop you from investing in something you know will transform your business - there’s always a solution if you’re 100% committed. Let me help you find a way!

Q: Between my job, my family, my house, errands etc - I'm just not sure I'll have the time to put the work in. What is the time commitment?

A: The honest truth? The Academy wont work unless you do. 

I'd recommend putting aside 3-5hrs per week to go through the materials and do the work. Some weeks you may need a bit longer (you'll find that once you're inspired, you could keep on working - because you LOVE your business so much)! Some weeks, you wont need as long - the choice is yours and you get to choose the pace. 

Obviously you need to trust your timing as don't want you spending money on this if you're just not feeling motivated enough to do the work right now. I'm not in the business of taking your money and dragging you across the finish line. I'm in the business of helping you change your life. But I can't be the only one who truly wants this for you.

What I can tell you though, is I work with clients all over the world who have day jobs, small children they look after or home-school (one of my clients has SIX kids!), are in the middle of moving house or relocating countries and they still make time to work on their business. Why? Because it's important to them. And guess what? They still find time to workout and have date nights with their partner ;-)

This course is about creating more freedom, not taking it away. You're welcome to work at your own pace.

Q: Can I pay in instalments? 

A. Of course!

I wanted to make this program as accessible for you as possible. Whatever it takes for you to do this for you and your family. Talk to us about payment options.

Q: I want to do this program but honestly I'm just so afraid! What if I don't get anywhere, what if I fail, what if I disappoint myself and others? 

A: What if you never find out what you are truly capable of in this life? What does it mean to stay exactly where you are right now? Is that an option?

My clients all felt the same way before signing up. This is normal, but it's time to move past your fear and into determined action. I believe you already have the vision you need to succeed. I promise I will provide you with the resources, strategy and knowledge necessary to help you succeed even more than you can imagine. All you need to do is show up and do the work. 

I did the work and followed up with people who did not sign up for the Academy 6 months down the track. Sadly, 50% were in exactly the same position they were in when we had our Discovery Call. The other 50% had given up completely. Fact.

I don’t want this for you. Hoping these problems just disappear on their own never works. Forging forward without direction or accountability and support is hard-going.

Get the support.

A note from Amanda

1590-Amanda Davies-Edit M copy.jpg

I understand what you're feeling right now. You're excited and have 'the butterflies' but you also have the monkey mind that's telling you you're crazy and there's no way you'll be able to make this work.

I understand you're probably a little bit afraid (and fear tends to disguise itself as our adult, rational voice). But I'll let you in on a secret - I believe our greatest life is on the other side of our fear. In fact, I believe fear is a good thing. It's an indicator of what we desire most. 

Let me just say, if there is even just a teeny part of you that's screaming, "this is it. I know that this program is for me!" I highly suggest you take a leap of faith and follow your intuition. You don't want to look back a few months from now and wish you'd made a different decision. 

Wherever you are right now is a result of your past thinking. If you're not 100% fulfilled, wouldn't you agree you need to try something different?

Ask yourself right now, "What's possible for me if I invest in myself and finally get the support and step-by-step guidance I need?"

And on the flip-side, ask yourself, "Where will I be a few months from now if I don't take any action? Am I okay with nothing changing and having things in my life stay the same?"

It's ok to ask for help and that's why I'm here to support you every step of the way (along with your Academy colleagues)! It's my mission to help you overcome those fears and create a life and business beyond your wildest dreams. If my clients and I have been able to do it, believe me you can too.

If you're ready to do the work and make some magic happen, then let's do it. Now's your time and it's yours for the taking!

With love and belief in you,

Amanda
