Designed to fit easily into your busy life, the delivery of this program is unique.
You’ll find all of the elements that a traditional incubator provides – access to experts, a structured program, mentoring, milestones, accountability, professional services, a supportive yet challenging environment, peer support and connection, but you won’t be expected to give away any equity or spend 40 hours a week to being locked in a co-working space.
With live and recorded video tutorials, an online hub open 24-7 and core course content available in a range of formats you can choose the delivery method that suits you best, whether that’s watching a video, listening to audio or reading from printable transcripts, enabling you to be able to access learning anywhere, anytime.
The program covers 6 key modules, where our world-class experts will teach you the strategies for marketing, branding, sales, finances, time management and more.
One of the most important parts of this program is equipping founders with the tools to support them to achieve their dreams and the self-belief to know that they can achieve and be anything they want.
It takes knowledge, understanding and action to implement engaging marketing campaigns, analyse your financial information, think strategically and create innovative ideas and this program helps you to achieve this.

Entrepreneurs that have made it BIG in business while keeping the balance right for their families
‘When I began to embark on the journey to start my own business I was so overwhelmed with where to begin. There is so much information out there to help but how do I find the time to research while looking after 2 kids and still working. When I came across a Facebook ad introducing the Women’s Business School I had a ”oh my” moment.
When I looked further into it I could not believe what the course described, its values and its modules. I was so excited because it had a module that taught you ”Time Management” around your business and your family. That’s when I had another moment and realised that this was meant to be. I have no regrets and I have learnt all the essential key components to setting up, running and sustaining my business.
The support factor astounds me and I’ve made life long friends along the way too. This is not only a school it is a community, one that understands you not only as a student but as a mother, wife and entrepreneur’. Thank you for supporting me and showing me the skills to go one step further and be a Mumpreneur’.”

“The Women’s Business School has been such a positive injection for my business. Being a mum is super-important to me, and I was interested in learning more about growing my business alongside other mums who were in a similar situation to me. Most of us mumpreneurs are involved in a bit of a crazy juggle at times, and I really appreciated that I could be fully ‘me’ as I did this course, and that I didn’t have to pretend that I was ‘just’ a worker or business owner who wasn’t involved in that juggle. The Brisbane Masterclass was such a great opportunity to get dressed up and spend the day focused on thinking about my business. The presentations from Peace, Katy and the other women were spot on, and the conversations with other course participants were encouraging. I enjoyed hearing other women’s business stories and dreams, and also hearing their feedback on mine. The vibe was fun and supportive, and I loved that. I came away with heaps of ideas for my business. What I really appreciated though was the opportunity to then slow down and spend a month thinking through each of the course components. The delivery format is flexible, and I’ve found myself watching the presentations and reading the books on my work computer, in bed, on a train, and even by the pool as my kids do their swimming lessons! The course organisers and presenters all make you feel like they are on your side, cheering you on, and that has given me increased confidence in putting my ideas into practice. The Marketing component was especially helpful for me. It was an area that I knew I had no natural talent or experience in, but the ideas were so clearly expressed and so practical that I put some of them into place straight away. My business went from having a steady trickle of work to just that tiny bit too much. I am loving having so much work coming in, and I know that so much of it has to do with the practical steps I took after completing the Marketing Assignment.” Tori Walker, The Women’s Business School

“When I signed up to The Women’s Business School I had an idea and no real clue how to turn it into a business. Now, 4 months in, my business is in the development phase, I have a business plan, a marketing plan and I’m currently learning how to deal with social media and how best to use it! On top of all of the practical information I have received, I have also met some amazing and inspirational women. I truly believe that we need to surround ourselves with like-minded people in order to succeed and The Women’s Business School has allowed me to connect with and turn to so many incredible women. I can honestly say that if not for this program I’d still just have an idea. This program has taught me to believe in my own abilities and to go for it. I’m very grateful to be a part of something so special.” Anna Braithwaite, The Women’s Business School
The ignite program helped us to really clarify our companies values, our “WHY” and who we were trying to sell to- our target market. We loved the coursework “creating a life you love” where we explored and visualised where we wanted to see the business and what our dream work days look like. We constantly refer back to these, especially if having a challenging day. We found the course content highly relevant, even though we were in the early stages of our business and loved connecting with other female entrepreneurs that have looked outside the box when it comes to developing their own businesses. Very inspiring.
It has given me the confidence to step out of my shell to pursue my dreams
Prior to starting the program, I was confident in the direction and plans I had for the business but I felt there was still something missing. I studied Marketing and Business Management at Uni, I’ve worked for major corporate brands, so I felt I had a good handle on my business. The program, however, really opened my eyes to the importance of looking beyond the business practicalities, that the way we think can really shape so much. It has given me the confidence to step out of my shell to pursue my dreams. I am training myself to rethink: instead of that voice saying “but YOU can’t do that” I quickly shut it down with a big loud “well WHY NOT? of course I CAN!”. I loved how the program was like a rewiring of the way to think about not just how I manage my business but also how I reflect on myself.
I really enjoyed all modules
There are so many things that I liked but the key highlight for me were the group coaching calls. I gained so much from hearing from the industry experts. I enjoyed their stories of success and the practical advice that they gave. I really enjoyed all modules but the best one was the Financial Abundance. I got so much from this module. I have set aside time every week to review my businesses financial position and i now understand all the “finance lingo” that was once a total blur. I know what I am spending and when I need to cut back. This module has been such a massive help.
A wealth of knowledge
The program speakers where inspiring, very approachable and came with a wealth of knowledge. The set tasks were relatable and assisted in developing ‘Kat & Fox’ further. I treasure the fact that I was pushed to address certain aspects I had neglected to do so prior to jumping in. The networking and contacts I made on the program have been invaluable to me even evolving into personal friendships! I would certainly recommend this course…. We all need a hand to hold at the start, as the first steps are scary. This course will assist in creating the right road map for you…with the added bonus of making new friends and contacts along the way.
The masterclass was so incredibly helpful to me in developing and managing my business.
The masterclass was so incredibly helpful to me in developing and managing my business. It covered all of the aspects I had been struggling with, providing clear and concise guidance. It also gave me lots of information I never knew I needed! I really loved the opportunity to meet and network with other awesome Women. Thanks Katy & Peace! Vanessa
