YOUR NEXT BIG LEAP Adelaide Luxury Business Bootcamp

Are you a women in business, over loaded soloprenuer, budding infoprenuer, coach, natural therapist, up and coming presenter or workshop leader - in fact anyone with a heart based business?

Do you have a message inside that is screaming to get out?

Nervous Lady

Are you ready to take

Is it time for you and/or your business to take a step up?

Are you feeling anxious and nervous about what you need to do next?

• You may be ready to launch your first business

• Perhaps you have been in business for a while now and are ready to take it to the next level

• Maybe you are totally confused and have no idea what your next step actually is!

But you do know for certain that you are ready to take that next big leap that will get you and your business happy and humming – whatever that is for you.

How can we help you?

We are Samantha Richardson of Evolution Events and Margaret Gill of Abundant Private Practices and we know all about THE BIG LEAP. 

In fact we have leaped many times and believe we are fully qualified deep end specialists. 

In fact we are card carrying members of the “Wish We Had Put Water in the Pool First Before We Leapt” Club of Small Business Learning.

We have created a program for gutsy women in small business called YOUR NEXT BIG LEAP Luxury Business Boot Camp because we know, all you need is the right support.

The Boot Camp is based around the truth that we have all taken a leap into an empty pool at least once in our life and we like to hear the whole truth warts and all. We want to know EVERYTHING not just the smoke and mirrors.

We are prepared to tell it like it is and do whatever it takes to help you make your business work. 

“it doesn’t have to be perfect to be perfect”

We also know women in business are busy multi taskers, are generally time poor and seek quick, easy answers to their complex problems. So our training philosophy is fast and furious and we encourage you to understand that “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be perfect” – you just have to be willing to have a go. 

We fully understand a woman's chances of success are enhanced when you have:

• A judgement free zone

• The right knowledge

• Solid support

• Inspiration

• Confidence to succeed

We deliver all this and more in a safe, nurturing BS free environment. 

"I felt so comfortable in Sam’s and Margaret's space.  Two amazing ladies full of intelligence and heart. I'm really excited about the path I am heading down and love that I have now connected with you both.”

Suzie Crawford, Director of the Amina Academy, Gold Coast

We are committed to helping women in heart based businesses harness their passion and take their next big leap.

You Are Ready to Leap?

Three things start to happen when you are ready for your next big leap

  1. Your heart starts to dominate your thoughts

  2. Your head goes ballistic with reasons why you can’t do it

  3. Eventually your heart wins!

People who lead from the heart occasionally get de-railed due to fear, lack of confidence and lack of knowledge but eventually one of two things happen.  They either bury the message and live a miserable life or they listen to their heart and get on with it.

You have read this far so you must be a "get on with it kind of gal" so keep reading to find out how we can help you.

This event is for anyone whose heart is saying jump and even though you are scared witless, you secretly want to make a big leap and will do what it takes to make it happen.

But if you have had anything to do with heart based thoughts you know they can be misleading and sometimes difficult to unravel and implement. 

We know that because we have come through the school of hard knocks when it comes to setting up heart based businesses.

But don't just take our word for it, here is what one participant had to say....

"I have learnt more from you in three hours than I have from most people in my lifetime, not only about business and public speaking but also spirituality. You truly are so full of knowledge and so inspirational. You made me feel as though the world is at my feet and I can achieve anything! I would happily recommend you to anyone!”

Monica Reitano, Assistant Manager
The Soul of One Spiritual Centre, Mackay, Queensland


How can we help you?

Anyone who has started a journey in a heart based business knows the pull of the heart and the head. Your heart will always land you in the right place........... EVENTUALLY

"anything heart based is a journey"

The problem is that when you start the journey you don’t know what you don’t know.

Often people think (the head part) they know what they are creating when they start out…..THEN they get a certain distance down the track only to realise they either need to find a new track or repair the track they are already on (the journey = the heart part). 

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." Oscar Wilde

We help you find clarity in your business and show you how to craft your message to the world, simply by being yourself.

We are here to show you the things you don’t know and to give you the knowledge and tools to get up to the next level with ease and elegance.

YOUR NEXT BIG LEAP Luxury Business Boot Camp will help you find the right knowledge to get you where you want to be.

But for those of you who have already tried, you will know that getting over yourself is the hardest part of the equation.

Don't lose your blouse trying

Too many women in heart based businesses have been indoctrinated with the thinking “create it and they will come”.  Sadly this is not the case, and many have lost their blouse due to this common mistruth.  People come and buy when they have a compelling reason to do so – then they will come! 

1. We show you how to create and share your compelling reason

The other blouse buster is ”follow your dream and the world will conspire to help you”.  To a certain degree there is truth in this statement but you have to be taking the right actions for the universe to be able to help you

2. We show you the right actions

The other thing that happens is that people in heart based businesses grow personally as their business grows.  What this does is creates an owner with a message that is bigger than your first overdraft PLUS a product or service that also needs to get out to the world.

3. We show you how to get your message out to the world and beyond

The question then becomes – how to do all of this AND RUN THE BUSINESS?

The answer is: set aside a weekend with us and go home with the answers, most of the hard work done and the inspiration you need to make it happen.

Here is how the weekend helped Susan

"Before I came to this weekend I was very confused about how to run an effective event and do public speaking.  I had read many books and it all seemed beyond me, it always seemed like I needed to learn more.  The weekend gave me the knowledge that I already know how to speak publicly and I already ready know enough to be effective because of all the fantastic practical tips I’ve learnt.  I now have the confidence to go forward and I know from here on out I have a very clear plan and a very clear idea of what it is I’m trying to achieve.  It was fantastic!

Susan Living, Owner of The Clean Living Clinic
Eagle Heights, Queensland

You don’t have to do it alone

YOUR NEXT BIG LEAP Luxury Business Boot Camp will be one of many events that will help you get where you want to go.  Hang on you say – isn’t there meant to be one leap and its all happy ever after.

Sadly not the case in a heart based business. 

As the owner grows the message grows and so many levels of leaping occur with each stage of growth.

YOUR NEXT BIG LEAP Luxury Business Boot Camp is about addressing all the leaps you need to take to get you up to the next level. 

We have created a system called the Piccolo Process to make this easy for you to understand and implement.

There are seven key learning points in our Piccolo Process:

  1. Presenting and marketing your message to bigger and wider audiences

  2. Image and branding confidence for you and your product

  3. Creating and communicating clear, passionate and authentic messages

  4. Converting clutter into clarity

  5. Operating on different communication and technology platforms

  6. Launching your message using PR and Media

  7. Opportunities to Make More Money from Your Message

We have identified these seven keys not only as being seven key learning principles but they are also the seven things that create the most discomfort for people when they try to move forward and lets face it – discomfort creates change. 

By understanding and learning to embrace discomfort you encourage positive change.

But where do you start?

We know how hard it is to be objective when you are the business. It's even harder still to get any level of clarity around your business and message. 

We aren’t going to tell you its easy because we are determined to offer transparent marketing messages.  But creating positive change is do-able with the right support and knowledge by identifying what stage you need next in the Piccolo Process.

"I can to Luxury Business Bootcamp because I felt I needed to increase my ability as a speaker and presenter in order to move to new levels of success in my business.  I can thoroughly recommend the “been there done that” attitude of Sam and Margaret, they are fantastic and you really do come away with a sense of being able to do what you need to do to put those skills to work in your own business".

Leonie Marks, Business Astrologer and Mentor
Adelaide, South Australia

We have many different events to help you.

All our events are designed to give you the confidence, clarity and knowledge to take YOUR NEXT BIG LEAP but our system allows you to keep moving in a gradual easy format.  You can implement the learning from one event and then take the next leap to the next level at the next event.

The first event you must attend is:

Luxury Business Boot Camp

Lady taking a big leap

  • Why you need structure and a plan for events and speaking

  • What a "Run Sheet" is and why you need one

  • Why details are SO important

  • What can go wrong on the day and how to put it right

  • How to embrace your discomfort

  • Tips and techniques that will stop a disaster before it happens

  • How to quickly get a crowd on your side

  • Five easy fixes to overcome your speaking fears

  • How to create a meaningful message

  • Ways to cope when your truth is your message

  • How to find your authentic presence

  • What to do when your room is going pear shaped

  • Twelve different marketing techniques you can use to fill your events

"Before this event I would not have been able to stand in front of a group saying anything at all but now due to this course I can actually stand there and have the time of my life.  I now have the courage and confident to run events and speak in public and just be who ever I want to be”.
