Running your own small business is lonely. How many times have you wished you had a team of people working alongside you to talk to, ask for help, or hold you accountable? 

Or loved for someone to show you exactly what you need to do to price your products, work out a marketing strategy or write your website?

We've felt every frustration you're experiencing. And we've spoken to hundreds of other entrepreneurs who feel the same way. 

That's why we created TLC Team - a monthly programme that guides you through different areas of your business, ensuring that you DO something every month, and make satisfying, concrete progress. 


  • Workbooks and exercises

    Every month you get access to workbooks and exercises (worth up to £49) to help you make concrete progress on your business goals.

  • Live masterclasses

    Every month you can join a live online class (worth £35) jam packed with practical advice. You also get a recording of the class to keep forever.

  • Private Facebook community

    Join a friendly Facebook community of entrepreneurs and freelancers. Ask questions, share the ups and downs of business and get support.

  • Weekly accountability

    Join our weekly acorn challenge and set and work towards goals to keep your business moving forward. Plus choose a group accountability partner.

  • Monthly clinic

    Join our live monthly video business clinic and get personal advice and encouragement on your business from business coach Hannah Martin.

  • Featured members

    Love to showcase what you do to our 90k readers and 70k social network? Every fortnight we choose a member to promote to our audience.

I just want to say what a useful tool this is

Laura Harmsworth

I just want to say what a useful tool the "Your Monthly Achievements" is. I usually plod on day to day, not looking back at what I have actually achieved. Completing the sheet at the end of each month is a great reminder and makes me start the next month full of positivity and pride. Thank you!
Bonamy Gauvain Waddell

Your support gave me an inner confidence

Bonamy Gauvain Waddell

I truly believe that your support, and knowing that you’ve been ‘behind me’ this year, has given me a hidden inner confidence at certain times when I was feeling unsure about going it alone. Thank you!
Karen Boyd

I'm glad I made the leap to join

Karen Boyd

I have been so impressed with the modules and monthly masterclasses (webinars). They cover essential business knowledge from brand planning, sales and goal setting to social media (and more!) as well as mindset, confidence and productivity. Hannah has been great responding to queries and been very helpful. Glad I made the leap to join [TLC Team] and very excited about the future of my business.
Jo Clifton

By far one of my best business decisions

Jo Clifton

Hannah's 'lives' in the group, and other one-to-one interactions and support have always been spot-on and backed up with such credibility, experience and humour! Worth every penny and by far one of my best business decisions.
Sally Gurney

The Facebook group is supportive and fun

Sally Gurney

Hannah has already given me the confidence boost I need to start to break through any blockers that are holding me back from starting my business. And the secret Facebook group is just as open and supportive plus it’s fun to be part of.
Sally Bunkham

A no-brainer investment

Sally Bunkham

Hannah is fantastic and always on hand to answer any type of issue we are going through, whether it's nuts and bolts business advice or more personal stuff like confidence or imposter syndrome issues. It's also amazing value for money and in my opinion a no brainer investment for any start up business. Highly recommended
Kate Hopkinson

I feel excited about the future

Kate Hopkinson

I found Hannah to be an extremely knowledgeable individual who knows how to build a successful business, and is happy to share her knowledge with others. She is enthusiastic, engaging, and a genuine individual who wants to help others on their journey. After speaking with Hannah, I feel excited about the future plans for my business.
Laura Harmsworth

Worth every penny

Laura Harmsworth

TLC is a fantastic resource. Hannah is extremely personable and shares her vast knowledge. The monthly subscription to TLC Team is worth every penny - monthly resources to help you with your business, a monthly masterclass, and a private Facebook group for support. If you are looking to start or ramp up your business, this is the ideal way to do it!
Laura Gibson

I highly recommend

Laura Gibson

I particularly like the monthly membership programme. It's full of thought-provoking worksheets, challenges and monthly masterclasses to help you get ahead. I highly recommend.
Mary Kalava

The wealth of information is amazing!

Mary Kalava

I discovered TLC at a perfect moment in my life! (I was just at the planning stage of starting a new business.) TLC is chalk-full of information for business and life in general. The wealth of information is amazing! I am consulting their resources constantly! When I had an inquiry, Hannah responded right away!


  • How much is membership?

    You can get access right now for £35 a month. Or you can get two months free if you pay annually (£360). a full year's memebrmake an annual payment of £360, savnioin for paid monthly, or £30 a month paid annually as a one-off payment of £360.

  • What's included in my membership?

    You get access to a private community on Facebook, a monthly live masterclass class with Hannah Martin, and monthly workbooks and exercises on our learning platform. You also get invited to a live monthly video clinic in which you can ask questions and get get help from Hannah Martin, can join our weekly acorns goal setting exercise, and apply to be our featured member of the fortnight, and promote your business to our 90k monthly readers and 70k social network. And finally we'll send you our beautiful A4 TLC Academy binder to keep your worksheets and resources safe.

  • Is TLC Team for new or established businesses?

    It’s for both. You’ll find the masterclasses, workbooks, clinic, promotion opportunities and community valuable whether you’re pre-launch or have been running your business for five years.

  • How do I watch the masterclasses?

    As a member of TLC Team you can watch each month's masterclass live as part of your membership. After the class we’ll send you a recording. This is yours to watch whenever you need, for as many times as you wish. We add each masterclass into our monthly resources within TLC Team. So even if you've missed a previous class that took place before you joined, you'll be able to watch it later as part of your membership.

  • What type of business is TLC Team for?

    TLC Team is designed to be valuable for any type of business – from designers, makers and bakers, to shops, cafés and businesses offering services such as accountancy. It covers all the fundamentals you need to master when you run a business, whatever your business does.

  • I’m a freelancer. Will it be helpful for me?

    Yes. Freelancers are, in effect, micro businesses. You need to do all the same things a ‘proper business’ does, including finding clients, pricing yourself correctly, identifying your USP, having a marketing plan, and using social media effectively. As a result, you’ll find the masterclasss, workbooks and exercises and the supportive community just as valuable as any business.

  • How do I become a featured member?

    Every fortnight we choose a member to feature, and promote to our 90,000 monthly readers and 70,000 social network. When you join TLC Team we'll send you a welcome email with details about how you can apply to be a featured member.

  • How do I join the monthly clinics?

    Every month, business coach and mentor Hannah Martin holds a live online clinic. You can join the clinic to listen to the advice she shares with other members, or ask your own question. You'll receive an email each month with details about how to join the clinic.


Business coaching and accountability works. It's as simple as that. And this is the easiest and most accessible entry into our coaching offerings you can get. 

From the day you join you'll have access to the first monthly module - which shows you how to write your mission and vision statements, design the perfect day you're working towards, and get you into the habit of setting yourself business goals. 

If you do the work you'll see incredible progress - all for just £35 a month (the cost of a coffee and a slice of cake a week). Plus you'll get access to a friendly, ambitious community who'll help solve your problems and cheer you on. 

AND, the cherry on this particular business cake is free access to our monthly coaching masterclasses (non-members pay £35 just to watch each individual class, without the rest of membership benefits). 

This really is the best £35 you can spend on your business.


TLC Team is designed to help small business owners - from early stage startups to established entrepreneurs - who’d love the support and back up of a team. 

It's perfect for every type of entrepreneur and business, including: 

  • Creatives – makers, designers, florists, bakers
