This is NOT how you imagined it would be!
You knew being a business-owner wouldn’t be easy, but you fully intended to bounce out of bed most mornings, exercise, eat a proper breakfast and slash purposefully through an organised ‘to do’ list with machete-sharp motivation – all the information you need right where you left it – effortlessly at your fingertips. Boxes ticked, goals kicked, targets met, money made like a true professional.
You know people in business who do that. Increasingly, you suspect that they have ‘business brains’ – while you have ideas, and lots of them – if only you could remember where you didn’t file them properly during that first flush of inspiration that always seems to trump being sensibly organised.
“I’ll fix it later!” you promise.
“I need to get some systems!” you cry.
Alas, it’s not just systems that you need! It’s clients. And programs and services that are so water-tight and professional that they practically deliver themselves. Throw in a blitzing social media campaign, marketing, publicity and the thing you really want – sales – and you’ll feel like you’ve really ‘arrived’.
There’s only so long that you can keep up this charade, and you know it. Behind the public face there are times when it’s mind-bogglingly hard. Times when you feel like a fraud. Times when you flop on the couch in your PJs at noon, watching Downton Abbey re-runs and scrolling mindlessly through Facebook in the hope that the administration fairies will magic away the mess in your office…
Enter My 15 Minutes - Small Business Summer School
Based on the immensely popular My 15 Minutes approach, our Small Business Summer School guides you through each aspect of your business, in a series of achievable daily 15-minute actions designed to help you claw back control and fall in love with your work again, in just a sliver of your time each day.

You’ll pamper 7 key areas in your business over the 90-day program:
And, on the weekends:
It’s about refreshing how you operate, making more money, bringing back the spark and liberating yourself from the excuses and stumbling-blocks that you’ve scattered at your feet for a while now.
This is not a passive program!

How does the My 15 Minutes Summer School work?
Including Christmas! As we’re taking a month off in the middle of the Summer School! It’s about finishing the year strong, for 6 weeks from 3 November 2014, relaxing over Christmas, then kicking off your best year yet, for another 6 weeks from 12 January 2015.
What we want for YOU and YOUR BUSINESS is this:
- Clarity of purpose
- More clients and stronger client relationships
- Space to increase profits
- Increased brand awareness
- A signature suite of products and/or services
- Greater control over systems and processes
- A growing sense of accomplishment and confidence
- Lightness (getting rid of the things weighing you down)
How we'll deliver it:
- 15 minutes at a time!
- In a simple, straight-forward, easy-to-follow system landing in your inbox daily, that allows you to get your act together as a business owner, in every domain that matters, one easy step at a time.
- It's a daily shot of inspiration and an action plan that, when added upon daily for three months, enhances your business the way that compound interest enhances your bank balance.
- PLUS an abundance of accountability, personal coaching, group coaching and more!
What's going to happen?
At some point, probably about half-way through, you'll reach a tipping point...where everything starts to become easier, more organised, more proactive, smooth-running and enjoyable.
You'll notice less daily slog and more targeted action, while you turn your business around.
Why are we doing this?
We've worked with over 500 clients in our My 15 Minutes programs and we've noticed several common challenges:
- For the big picture to work, people need to get the smaller details right.
- There's a real sense that 'I can't do it all at once' and a deer-in-headlights feeling of 'Where do I start?'
- People want to make changes but don't know how they'll fit it in: 'Argh! How do I streamline this process and cover everything that's important to grow my business, in addition to everything I'm already doing?'
- Small business owners are tired of having to make all of the decisions - sometimes it's nice to be told what to do.
- There's a strong desire for community support and mutual encouragement during programs like this.
While you and I have been busy running down dead ends and wasting our effort, scientists have been busy trying to figure out what actually works. And now they know:
- Small steps work.
- Consistent effort works.
- Group support works.
That’s it. Three things. Set a goal, and in small, consistent steps, work to reach it. Get support from your peers when you start flagging. Repeat.
You will change.” Seth Godin, Author, Entrepreneur, Marketer & Public Speaker
Who are we? Why trust us?
We've each been running successful small businesses since 2009, and together we created the popular and life-changing My 15 Minutes program in 2013.

I am finding with this program that I can fit more into 15 minute blocks than I fit into an hour! Yesterday I gave myself a 15 minute blitz to see how much work I could get done... most efficient 15 minutes of the day!
I know you can't work like this all day long but a few 15 minute bursts throughout the day may just be the winning formula for me.Rebecca Stamp
