You’re an expert in your field. Someone who has a passion for your specialism.
However, running a business without a team means you’re the finance department, the marketing manager, the admin guru, the graphic designer and copywriter! That’s just too many hats for one person.
The Business Focus Academy will teach you the key skills invaluable for time poor entrepreneurs who want to take control of their working day and focus on the work they love.
The BUSINESS FOCUS ACADEMY is an Online Membership training programme with fortnightly support from me, Amanda Brown, business consultant and founder of the Homepreneur Community.
The Modules and Lessons are uploaded regularly to the membership website and consist of:
checklists and templates
You will have lifetime access to the modules as long as you are a member so you can go back over them at your leisure.

There will be a fortnightly call – ‘Office Hours’ – where you can attend the Zoom online meeting and ask questions about your specific problems.
You also have the benefit of listening to other members’ questions which can be really useful.
Have you ever been to a business skills workshop, for example on Google analytics?
If you answered NO to any of these questions then you are in the right place.
As a business consultant and trainer, I have advised hundreds of business people who struggle with being overwhelmed, juggling too many tasks. Being a member of the Business Focus Academy you will learn the key skills needed to run your business effectively without the need for attending multiple courses.
The Academy focuses on applying the principles of just enough learning and just in time learning.
This simply means clarity.
I’m here to provide you with motivation and accountability.
You can start the membership at any time and take as long as you like to complete it. The sooner you get going and start making progress, the sooner you’ll be on your journey to more effective content.
