Building a business on your own is tough and lonely. It's also fraught with unknown hazards, including easy mistakes that waste your time, chip away at your hope, and lose you money.
Mistakes like the wrong pricing, the wrong customers, the wrong marketing strategy, the wrong sales funnel, the wrong systems, the wrong branding... you get the idea!
But what if it wasn't like that?
What if someone guided you through the next 12 months of your business? And gave you the tools to avoid all those mistakes and instead help you price for profit, find the right customers, plan your marketing strategy, build your sales funnel, set up systems, define your branding and more?
And what if you also had a mentor on hand to answer your questions and give you practical and emotional support throughout the year? A mentor who has not only grown her own hugely successful and profitable business, but helped others like you do the same?
That's exactly what the TLC Business Club is designed to help you do.
So, 12 months from today you can be confidently running a healthy, strong and profitable business that you are rightfully proud of. And be having FUN while earning money.
Hello, I'm Hannah Martin and I'll be your business mentor for the next 12 months when you join the TLC Business Club.
I've run profitable businesses for the past 14 years, and have grown Talented Ladies Club into a global brand with over 100,000 monthly readers and dozens of online courses and masterclasses.
I love working with aspiring business owners and freelancers like you, and sharing the advice, tools and lessons that have helped me grow and make good money from my businesses.
Since launching Talented Ladies Club I've become a popular media commentator on female and business issues, a business mentor for NatWest's Entrepreneur Accelerator programme, and I'm a member of two All Party Parliamentary Groups.
I'm also a qualified hypnotherapist, psychologist and NLP Practitioner, which gives me some impressive psychology tools to help you get past any blockers and achieve your true potential.
I can't wait to work with you and help you make your business dreams a successful and rewarding reality.
AS SEEN IN
The TLC Business Club was born from a mission to help women start successful businesses. Research shows that more women than men WANT to start a business, but fewer actually end up doing so. And of those who do, they earn less money.
We want to change that. We have 14 years' experience in running our own profitable businesses, and seven years' experience in helping others start and grow theirs.
We've already run Kickstart, a year-long start-up business programme , the VIP Club, a six-month business course, and Double Your Profits, a 12-week business growth course, all of which achieved fantastic successes.
And now we've created this brand new, year-long course that takes you through those all-important foundations. So you can build a business that is well-structured, easy to run and makes good money - all things that sound simple but are incredibly hard to get right on your own.
We ourselves have continually invested in learning and mentorship in launching and growing Talented Ladies Club, and it is undoubtedly been a large part of the secret of our success.
Now we're paying it forward by giving you access to all the knowledge and tools we have acquired, plus all-important support and encouragement.

"I was starting a business with no budget; I had nothing. But you need to invest in something that’s going to help you create a structure, because I really floundered in the beginning knowing what to do when.
It’s really easy to focus on too many things at once, and… the programme will give you that structure to focus on one thing, do it really well, get it right and move on. I think it will really help people not be overwhelmed because that happens so easily in the early days.
Kickstart gave me all of the resources I needed for things I had no knowledge about, like setting up a website, SEO and social media… I’ve looked at lots of different business clubs and training course and some of them are really unfriendly and not approachable.
TLC is a really supportive network and that is what really sold it to me. It’s talented people helping other talented people and it doesn’t matter what stage you’re at, because there’s always something you’ll get out of it.
I think it’s a must-have really. It was essential for me; it’s got me to the stage where I’m at now and I don’t think I could have done it without it."
- Jennie Adams, tutor (From Kickstart, our one-year business programme)
"At the end of last year I was wondering how to grow my business and how to tap into support from other businesses. It felt like I was the only one facing the challenges of starting a business, and as soon as you start talking to other people who run businesses you realise you’re all facing similar issues.
That part of it and having the online networking, and the group and the support threads and the sharing of ideas, and getting feedback helped reduce the loneliness of being a small business owner. It also helps you progress – people suggesting ideas you might not have even considered can help you grow your business.
Another thing is having the templates and the support and they’re easily set out. They take you through a guided progress of what you need to think about. When you start out running a business for the first time you think, "how am I going to do this?" Having those guides is really helpful to stop you getting overwhelmed.
Sometimes you just need someone to say, "I’ve been there and done it, and it’s going to be fine.""
- Rhiannon Abbott, Epsom Bakehouse (From Kickstart, our one-year business programme)
"From the very first discovery call I had with you, I have completely changed the way I see myself and my business.
It has given me the confidence to really value my work, have focus on the types of customers I want to attract and how to reach them.
Since September, when we started this course, my sales have increased by 240%."
- Kerry Coleman, Coleman Hammond (From TLC VIP Club, our six-month business course)
"I am so excited to announce I made over £10,600 on my course launch this week. 84 amazing students on board. After 18 months of failed launches using all the wrong marketing strategies, I finally joined Hannah Martin's program and it has turned my business around in ways I couldn't even imagine.
- Dr Kayleigh Fawcett Williams, WildlifeTek (From Double Your Profits, our three- month business course)
"Hannah's knowledge is extensive, she has some fantastic stories to back up what she is telling you, and she is incredibly personable.
Thanks to Hannah, the changes to my business have been incredible - some small, some big, all impactful. If you're ever given the opportunity to work with Hannah grab it!
- Laura Harmsworth, Caversham CV (From TLC VIP Club, our six-month business course)
"Before I did Double Your Profits I felt really guilty for not being with my kids, or at the end of the month not bringing enough money to my house, even when I worked really hard. And I was starting to feel like I was not good at my job because of that.
I was blaming my ability rather than the method I was using. But now I have a much better understanding of business, and I have more organisation in my daily work.
Importantly, I can also see when things are not right, and understand why that’s the case. And I know how to make the changes needed. I have a holistic vision of my business, rather than only seeing some parts of it in isolation.
I got my entire investment back from one workshop that I ran because of the course. "
- Alejandra Gonaldi, Caligrapher (From Double Your Profits, our three- month business course)
"I have recently completed the Double Your Profits programme and can not shout loud enough how useful it was.
Hannah shares soooo much wisdom, content and just the right amount of accountability pressure to ensure I worked through the processes to build my business.
With her cheerleading and knowledge, I have developed a website, a sales and marketing plan, an online learning platform, mastered Google Sheets and email automation, signed up to booking and payment systems and my administration processes are more efficient, allowing me to spend more time selling and delivering.
If you want to find out what your business is all about, how it can earn you money and meet like-minded and supportive women, you need Hannah in your life!"
- Caroline Would, Ad Astra Coaching (From Double Your Profits, our three- month business course)
The TLC Business Club starts on 20 September, and runs for 12 months. So if you have children it gives you time to get them settled into a routine at school or nursery. It's completely online and the modules are self-paced which means you can work on it when, where and how you like.
The principles we teach you are sector agnostic. You'll learn good business practice that will work for any type of business - whether you're online e-commerce, a bricks and mortar business or provide a service. (It's suitable for freelancers.)
What's more important than the type of business you run is the type of person you are. From experience the kind of people who thrive in this process are those who are ready and willing to take action, and trust the process. We know what we share with you works - we've proven it time and time again - but YOU will need to actually do the work to get results.
That depends partly on you. Obviously the more time you can put into your business, the quicker you'll make progress. But not all time is equal. What we teach you will SAVE you time because you'll work smarter on the tasks that will have the most impact on your business.
But if you're looking for some guidance, if you can spend at least two hours a week, you'll easily be able to manage the course content.
We don't hold you personally accountable for your progress - instead we give you the timeframe and the process to follow, with structure and milestones to keep you motivated and on track. And we're there to cheer you on and offer guidance and support in our weekly calls.
The reality is that if you seriously want to run a profitable, thriving business you need to be personally accountable. So we don't teach you to be dependent on us for your progress - we help you dig into YOUR why, YOUR goals and YOUR skills. So when you finish the programme you're already flying solo, and loving it!
You have lifetime access to the online content. So if you want to re-visit an exercise or masterclass later on you can. The programme itself is structured over 12 months, with 12 monthly modules and group calls over the 12 months.
You have 42 group calls over the 12 months. The calls are weekly, with breaks for school holidays. Once you start the course we'll send you a questionnaire to find the best time for the calls. All calls are recorded for you to watch afterwards if you wish. If you can't make a call you are welcome to submit a question and we'll answer in the call.
This course has an annual intake. So if you miss this cohort you'll need to wait a year to join. And just think on the progress (and income!) you'll have missed out on while you wait.
Again, this depends on your business and on you! We can't promise you anything - and no one responsible running courses like this ever should. What we can say is that we know what businesses who make money do right, and we show you how to do the same.
We also know what business who don't make money usually do wrong, and we'll show you how to avoid that!
The advice, systems and strategies we show you over the year we're together have helped us and other business owners and freelancers like you make good money, and our aim for this course is for you to create a business that doesn't just turn over money but actually makes you a PROFIT.
We want you to be absolutely happy with the decision to join the TLC Business Club. So if in the first 14 days of the course starting you decide you want a refund just let us know and we'll return your money in full, no questions asked.
If you have signed up for the annual plan, you must only have accessed one module in order to receive a full refund.
If you change your mind, or your circumstances change, any time after the first 14 days, we'll happily stop your payment plan for future months, or refund you for any unused modules if you joined the annual plan. Please do note that we cannot refund you for modules you have already accessed.
