Online Business Collective
An ongoing group coaching programme helping you double your monthly income while working part-time hours in your business.
For online business owners who just want to know exactly what they need to do to grow their business, step-by-step.
You’ve been running your business for a while now and you’re genuinely tired of...
👉 Buying expensive courses and programmess, but never seeing the big results they promise.
👉 Joining coaching programmes where the coach doesn't show up.
👉 Feeling like you’re trying “all the things” and still getting nowhere.
👉Feeling unmotivated by all the 6 and 7-figure gurus because you don't want to do it their way!
👉 Being stuck in react mode because your monthly income fluctuates so much.
👉 Having NO CLUE who to listen to because the online business industry is so noisy.
You’re a creative, passionate online business owner.
The kind that always has loads of ideas, but there never seems to be enough time in the day to get them out into the world.
And you're ready...
✔ Ready to help more people.
✔ Ready to make more money.
But at the same time, you don’t want to risk burning yourself out or losing the success you’ve worked so hard to create.
And you 100% do NOT believe that the only way to succeed is by being willing to do things that don’t feel like YOU, just because they work for other people.
Inside the Online Business Collective, we look at smarter ways to make more money without working more hours.
I'LL HELP YOU DETERMINE WHAT SUCCESS LOOKS LIKE FOR YOU...
🙌 The Online Business Collective isn’t a prescription to be methodically followed.
🙌 It’s not about achieving some arbitrary income goal.
🙌 Or following a step-by-step guide to someone else’s version of success.
🙌 You decide what you want to do and I’ll support you to make it happen.
"Since joining OBC I have learnt so much from Ruth and feel that my business is growing in the right direction. The support has been amazing and I feel that if I have any questions or need input I can just go into the group and ask. I have no business or social media background so having this kind of support makes all the difference to me. Definitely my best investment during the pandemic!"

It was the best decision I’ve made to work with Ruth. I have complete clarity on what I offer, the most supportive network of female entrepreneurs, AND I have gone from 1 client last year to being fully booked, thanks to Ruth.
CLARE NEWMAN - ONLINE BUSINESS STRATEGIST
The Online Business Collective is broken down into a 6-part Learn and Implement framework to help you succeed
Every 90-days, I host a live planning call to help you set your goals and priorities for the months ahead.
When you're busy running your business, it can feel like you're running on a treadmill going nowhere (rather than conquering that mountain you intended to climb).
When you complete the 90-day masterclass, you are allowing yourself to get off the treadmill and reset the clock.
Then you can identify the resources that will help you reach your goals. Remove the "shoulds" on focus on building the business you want. And implement whilst you learn and move towards your 90-day plan.
Goal-setting sessions run live every quarter and are also available to catch up at any time.
Every month, I release a strategic action plan in the form of a PDF, workbook, and/or live video training that covers the topic for that month in a way that is easily digestible and equips you to take immediate action.
If this new action plan isn't the right fit you can access a library of other resources and lessons you can pick from.
Example Action Plans Coming Up in 2023
📆 February 2023 - Set up your first (or next) list-building ads using the OBC Facebook Ads list-building course (which goes behind the scenes of my own Facebook ads and learn how I keep building my own list) and get support with the tech and strategy.
👉 Also released - new lessons on Creating Facebook Lead Ads (and don’t worry you do not need a massive budget to run these ads).
📆 March 2023 - Monetise Your List by creating a tripwire (from something you have already!) Live training and action plan.
Within the OBC you will find the List Building toolkit which helps you get your email marketing set up, and create your freebie funnel, and so much more. Next up is adding a tripwire to your funnel, and I will show you how to do this easily and how you can use this funnel to pay for your list-building ads.
📆 April 2023 - Paid workshops - Live training and action plan.
There are so many ways to add semi-passive income to your business, but sometimes you’re not quite ready to launch a course, or perhaps you never want to. Creating a paid live workshop is a great way to dip your toe into the 1-2 many options, and also a great way to grow your list and audience.
THE MONTHLY COACHING CALLS
Results-focused group coaching led by me - you'll tell me your problem, block, worry and then help you refocus on the outcome you want, and how you’re going to get there. Also a chance to brainstorm ideas with other talented business owners.
Implement what you've learnt into your business - with accountability check-ins, brainstorming sessions (with other like minded business owners), tech support (from my OBM) and coaching from me along the way.
Monthly Voxer Office Hours
This gives us the opportunity to talk through whatever you are working on or working through in your business. They’re also a great alternative if making time for group coaching is a challenge.
Weekly accountability check-ins
Yes, I will be asking you to set your intentions for the week, but I will be proactively following up with you to ask how you’re getting on.
Weekly Tech support
If you're stuck on anything or need some help with the "behind the scenes" stuff, Nina my OBM is on hand to help with anything to do with:
✔ FB Ads
✔ Online Course Tech
✔ Systems and processes
As a small business owner, it can be pretty lonely, you need a community of business owners who are ready to welcome you. This is no ordinary community, there’s no one-upmanship, there’s honesty and support. Together in the OBC you will mastermind, support each other, cheerlead, solve problems, collaborate, and even work with each other. Ultimately by surrounding ourselves with like-minded people, we make each other better business owners.
Setting goals isn’t about the end destination, it’s more about the action taken and lessons learnt. In the Online Business Collective you will celebrate the wins and lessons learned. Even if things didn’t go to plan, by setting your goal and moving towards it you learn as you move towards the goal.
So many business owners are afraid of setting goals and making plans, and within the OBC you have a safe space to test and learn things in your business and get support and feedback without feeling like it’s a race or competition.
Setting goals and celebrating the wins and lessons is an essential part of being a successful entrepreneur and keep your mindset strong before you move on to the next 90-day sprint.
Results- Focussed Coaching And Support
⭐️ 3+ live calls per month. Each one has its own focus and will help you work on your business. This is usually on Tuesday at 1pm (London time), however I offer different times based on the needs of the group.
⭐️ At least one of these calls is a live training session. Run by myself or a trusted expert(s)!
⭐️ Two of these calls each month are Q&A drop-in sessions. You’re welcome to come and watch, or ask your questions so you can unlock your next stage of progress.
⭐️ Monthly Voxer Office Hours. This gives us the opportunity to talk through whatever you are working on or working through in your business. They’re also a great alternative if making time for group coaching is a challenge.
⭐️ And the Online Business Collective Facebook group is available 24/7 for you to ask for input, share your triumphs, and connect with others who are also eagerly working towards growing their business.
I’m here to spark and nurture your ideas, then support you and hold you accountable as you turn them into a reality. I don’t give you the answers. I help you find your own.
I’m here to reassure you that you’re on the right track and to help you identify the signals that indicate your plans are coming together.
I’ll hear you out then help you re-focus on what you want instead and how you’re going to get there - that’s how results-focussed coaching works.

"The Online Business Collective is my go-to place to share the highs and lows of running a business. Since being a member, my business, without a doubt, has grown in ways that I wouldn’t have thought possible before joining. The combined expertise of all the members means there’s always someone to help talk your ideas through. If you’re stuck there’s a supportive shoulder to lean on when things get tough. I’d be lost without my Online Business Collective ladies."

The OBC has helped me focus on growing my business. Before I joined I was focusing 100% of my clients and not investing time or energy in growing and developing my business. Ruth has given me the confidence to talk about my business more openly on social media and given me ideas for income streams. I really value time to apply new ways of doing things in my business. The Facebook group is very valuable especially the Friday wins section, which as I work on my own, helps me start the weekend on a high. No matter how bad a week I have had, things have always been achieved and progressed.
KERRY HALL - SUMMIT CONSULTING
Before joining the OBC I was plodding along on my own, without direction and focus for my business. I knew I needed more self-belief. I also needed someone to turn to when I had questions, problems, or needed a second opinion. After joining the OBC I no longer feel alone. I’m now part of a great support team of fellow business owners. Ruth is a brilliant motivator and gives amazing advice. I have more belief in my abilities and what I can achieve. I’m much more clear on my goals and I now have the information, resources and support to get there.
