Why Venus Training Suite?

The Venus Training Suite is a vital part of the support we offer businesswomen. We believe that to succeed in business, it’s important to grow, both professionally and personally. This growth equips businesswomen to deal with change and find new opportunities.

To assist this growth, we offer relevant, powerful, and practical training and coaching programmes, which are created and delivered by experienced coaches and experts in their field. We pride ourselves on providing a safe, collaborative environment for attendees to learn key business and personal development concepts. As well, the programmes are structured so that attendees can deepen connections with other businesswomen. Because the best investment you can ever make is in yourself!

Your business will NEVER outperform YOU as the leader of it.  The secret to your success is the value you add – to have more you simply have to become more, don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. For things to change, you have to change and for things to get better, you have to get better. Is it possible to become really valuable via your business? Yes! You  do that by working on yourself and your own development

It’s incredibly important to invest time and money working ON your business. Setting aside regular time in your diary for planning, upskilling, strategizing, dreaming and IMPROVING how you do things is the key to building a sustainable business.

Opportunity is everywhere. How are you going to add more value to your clients. How are you going to earn more and increase your impact?

Think about it – if you only ever focus on the ‘same stuff, different day’ bits of your business, your chances of creating the business you really want are small. When you place intentional focus on improving yourself, your skills and your systems and processes you can’t go anywhere but UP!

That’s what the Venus Training Suite is all about, helping you step up in your life and your business – learn how to add more value by using the best asset your business has – you!

90 Day Coaching

“No problem can be solved with the consciousness that created it.”

We often get stuck in our own way and go round and round in circles. Do you sometimes question where you’re at, why you’re doing it, what you’re doing or get frustrated because things are simply not ‘coming together’?

That is where a Coach can help – a good Coach is a professional who can give advice and feedback based on the real business needs. A good coach combines experience and coaching, listens, asks the 101 annoying questions that lead to clarity. Simply working with a coach is about improving performance and focusing on the ‘here and now’. Coaches are objective and will see your business clearer than you simply because they are on the ‘outside looking in’.

90-day Coaching works because:

  • It’s a short time frame – but long enough to put plans in action and start seeing results, which in turn is motivating.
  • You focus on specific goals, turning them into executable and manageable plans.
  • It reduces the feeling of overwhelm – you’ll go from feeling desperate to supported and accomplished.
  • You have a definitive deadline to get things done.
  • It makes you accountable (weirdly, we all do things when we know someone else is going to check up on us – remember homework?!)

Within our Management Team and our community, we have Coaches in most business areas – if you’re looking for some help get in touch!

Financial Fitness

How often have you thought to yourself, ‘I really should get more in touch with my numbers’ or ‘I know I need to meet with my accountant more often, but I just have no idea what they’re talking about most of the time!’ or ‘Numbers just aren’t my thing.’  If your eyes glaze over when the topic of business finances comes up, don’t despair!  We know that every business owner needs to understand their business finances but that, for some, it doesn’t come naturally or easy.

That’s why we’ve created ‘Financial Fitness’ – a comprehensive workshop that will help empower you to dig into those numbers without fear! In this value-packed workshop you’ll learn the best financial practices to follow, understanding GST, financial reports (and how to read them!), getting paid on time and effective pricing.

This is an essential workshop for any businesswomen – Make sure the financials are under control so you can make money while doing what you love.  Walk away from this workshop feeling knowledgeable and empowered and ready to succeed financially.

More Money More Freedom:

Money! It’s one of those topics that excites some and terrifies others! Regardless of how you feel about your personal finances, the key to building stability and wealth starts with education! According to Warren Buffet- the two things you should constantly invest in: your ability to make money and your ability to make money work for you.

Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing. This workshop will address that as well as some of the questions below, you will then be in a better position to make educated decisions for yourself. Learn:

  • What does diversification mean for me?
  • How do I start an investment account (or, don’t I need heaps of money to do that?)
  • How do I even go about setting financial goals in the first place?

All these questions will be answered, and you’ll also learn how to manage some of natural mental biases we all have that tend to derail our plans – that alone is worth coming along for!

Professional Branding

Your image is constantly telling others about you.  In a professional world it’s important to put your best foot forward. When someone meets you for the first time in a business context your appearance has already primed them for their engagement with you. It delivers answers to them about your credibility, status, trustworthiness, and competence.

YOU are a living, breathing representation of your business brand, and we know that people buy from people, not businesses. Your personal brand needs to be carefully considered and executed so that it positions you as the right choice for your ideal prospects. If this seems daunting, don’t worry- we’ve got your back! Join us for this one-day intensive that will cover everything you need to consider when it comes to your professional image and presence in the marketplace.

Taking the time to meet people’s expectations often takes you past ‘go’ and straight to the bank! Is it time to up your game and become more intentional about how you present yourself and your business? If so, this workshop will be an eye-opener for you.
