So often in business, we have to navigate the challenges that life throws at us. If you are ready to change and grow, but don’t know how, let’s have a conversation to see how we can work together.

It doesn’t have to be complicated to create the business and life of your dreams – After all, there’s so much more to life than just being stuck in a business and your business should provide for you, not take your freedom away!

We understand it takes courage to try something new and commit to making long-term changes… We’re here to help you take that first step.

We provide local (Perth, Western Australia) and online professional coach support.

To help you proactively plan for greater and sustainable business success, we have something for every business owner – no matter what stage of business you’re at or where in the world you are situated.

  • Free educational webinars
  • Community events
  • Online business courses
  • Group face to face workshops

If you’ve ever wondered how much more you could achieve with just a little help and guidance, we can have a look at  the gaps in your business and map out a strategic plan for you to reach the next level so you can see exactly what that would look like for your business.

If you’re not quite sure what is going to suit you and your business, we are happy for one of our team to catch up for a Free 1 Hour Business Consultation (face to face or Zoom). We will then have a clear picture of where the opportunities are in your business and what would be most suitable.

I would strongly encourage ALL businesses to have a comprehensive business plan. This is crucial to take their business from where it is now to where they want it to be. When I am faced with this question from prospects or clients, I commonly ask them if they would build a house without a plan? Obviously not, and it is no different for a business.

Entrepreneurs Program (Monthly Group Program)

Our Entrepreneurs Unlimited Program (EUP) is a 12-month program for business owners and entrepreneurs who desire more skills, tools, inspiration and guidance to achieve their goals.

Designed for people who are committed to investing time and energy into their education, professional development & success of their business, you will spend 1 day per month proactively working ON your business, rather than just IN it.

Imagine the potential for growth if you set-aside over 72 hours per year to strategically plan and make informed decisions, rather than “putting out fires” and falling victim to re-active decisions!

This is your chance to work on all the areas of your business that you never have the time for, in an environment where there is coaching and mentoring support.

Imagine having a board of directors, a sounding board, and someone holding you accountable. Imagine if you could reach your potential faster and avoid the pitfalls that many business owners succumb to. This program will help you reach your goals and you will learn how to run your business, rather than your business running you.

Course Content ($795 + GST per month):

  • Business Planning Workshop – You will be invited to my next 2-day Business Planning Workshop where you will build your own comprehensive business plan for success and identify areas of potential to fast-track your business growth. This will enable you to be clear on your starting point, and have measurable components to track throughout your entrepreneurial journey.
  • Monthly Strategy Sessions (x 12) – The program will guide you through critical components of business mastery, assessing crucial success factors in your business through planning, leadership, financial management, marketing and sales, team, systems and more.
  • Leadership & Communication Development – Fine tune the art of becoming a highly regarded leader, and build a great culture to increase productivity through break-out groups focusing on direction setting, framework design, behavioural benchmarks, relationships, individual growth, reward, recognition and spiritual leadership.
  • Online Resources & Templates– You will have access to resources in every area of business, including relevant templates to improve your business systems, plus your own individual online portal with an abundance of strategies to work on, in conjunction with our program, to build your business.
  • Financial Tracking (Monthly) – We will hold you accountable to reviewing and submitting your financials on a monthly basis, so any immediate areas of concern can be flagged and rectified.
  • Accountability – You will be assigned an accountability buddy within the group who you will speak to regularly between meetings, to propel your success and help each other stay on track, focused and be a sounding board.
  • DISC Profile – We will provide you with a comprehensive behaviour & motivator assessment that will allow you to identify your natural and adjusted style of working, with the key traits behind your decisions and what this means for your business.

This program is not a seminar, there is no “drip” feeding or teaching from the front of the room. It’s a facilitated program and discussion around the growth and expansion of each participant’s business across the duration of the 12 month program. We meet once a month for 6 hours, from 11am to 5pm.

For most business owners, One on One business coaching is the best way for them to achieve their business goals.
Suzzanne works within a structure, and can adapt to coaching any individual.

Imagine having someone oversee every step of your your vital business operations and decisions.

By having a coach, you’ll have your own Business Management Consultant to hold you accountable and keep you on track.


What does a business coach do?

For one client this might mean giving them a hug, and for another, it may mean pushing them just that little bit further than they thought possible. Suzzanne provides every single business coaching client with a fair and honest perspective on their situation.

“This is the real value behind a business coach, especially someone like Suzzanne Laidlaw with her wealth of mentoring experience.”

What she looks for in a client, is a business owner who will follow through and constantly strive for greater success. One on One business coaching is best suited to businesses that have been established for at least two years, and are turning over at least $450,000 annually. However we are happy to discuss your individual situation and what sort of return on investment you can expect to get from coaching.


“Success is a journey not a destination”

Suzzanne is truly a testimony to this sentiment as she inspires and engages others with her positive, fun loving personality. Drawing strength from a solid background of over 25 years’ experience in key business management roles and business mentoring, she now coaches others to realise their dreams and live to the fullest of their own potential.

Author of ‘What’s Your Plan?’, Suzzanne has faced and overcome adversity and knows what it takes to surmount challenges and achieve extraordinary results.

Why Suzzanne?

Business aside, Suzzanne’s personal story is inspirational. She rescued her husband from a burning house fire and watched him die in ICU. He was revived, they had a family and some years later, as a mum of young kids, a medical diagnosis gave her five years to live. Since then she’s travelled the world and home schooled her children, lost everything financially, built it up again, and competed for Australia in sporting events. As stated by Tracey Vo from ABC Radio ‘her attitude should be bottled!’.

If you’re interested in finding out more about her story, you can buy a copy of her book here> ‘What’s Your Plan?’

You can view or listen to Suzanne speak with various media personalities here > Media Newsroom

Both Suzzanne’s professional and personal life experiences allow her to motivate and inspire people as a key note speaker. She has spoken for a huge array of organisations including BankWest, Edith Cowan University, Joondalup Learning Precinct, Women of the West plus many more not-for-profit organisations and companies covering various topics.

Some of Suzzanne’s motivational and speaking topics covered, include:

  • Planning for success,
  • Business Planning,
  • Life Planning,
  • Goal Setting,
  • Overcoming Adversity,
  • High Performing Teams,
  • Leadership,
  • Business Culture,
  • Health & Holistic Living,
  • Fitness,
  • Women’s Health,
  • Health Over 50,
  • Parallels Between Sport & Business Coaching,
  • Balance in Business & Life,
  • How To Scale A Business.

With over 25 years in key business management roles and as an elite athlete, Suzzanne knows what it takes to function at the top level and achieve extraordinary results.

Suzzanne is also an advocate for healthy living and believes that a positive mental and physical being greatly impacts the ability to be successful in business and life. She has been a sports coach and also competed in triathlon at an international level, so can speak first hand about “walking the walk” as an athlete and business owner.
