Next Momentum Programme starting 8th January 2018

Who is Momentum for?

If you love the freedom of being your own boss but feel you have no accountability or direction and focus on the stuff that will make a difference to your success, then Momentum is for you.

  • You don’t want a boss or directive targets but you do want a mentor and the structure to ensure you take the right action at the right time and get the results in your business that you want.
  • You want to achieve more in your business and reach your fullest potential, but you’re stuck in a rut and wonder whether you really have the time or motivation to make it happen.
  • You didn’t go into business to just make money but you do want a profitable and sustainable business that allows you to make a difference to hundreds or even thousands of people.
  • You want to play bigger but fear and doubt stop you from moving forward and taking your business where you want to be.

In Momentum, you’ll get a strategy and a plan that’s going to work for you and your business and you’ll be kept fully supported and on track with our unique Momentum Accountability System.

Our 90 Day Planning system gives you clear direction on where to build and grow your business, and the regular mentoring calls support you on your journey. Focusing on projects such as creating strategic partnerships, marketing systems, product development, expert authority building and hiring team members, Momentum is designed to show you how to grow and build your business on your terms.

You’re looking for simplicity

You’ve realised you’re on The Burnout Treadmill. You’re jumping from one thing to the next, with no time to breathe in between. Your business feels way too complicated and you just wish there was an easier way.

You want accountability

You enjoy and want to the freedom of being your own boss but with this comes a lack of accountability. It’s easy to drift or to talk yourself out of stuff that feels uncomfortable or scary so you want a supportive yet stretching place to keep you on track and ensure you get the success you really want.

You need a new kind of support group

Your current network has been good to you in recent years, but now you’re in danger of staying comfortable. You need to find a new group of like-minded entrepreneurs who will carry you beyond what you’re capable of by yourself and your current peers.

“Let’s put a stop to “the harder you work, the better the results you get” mentality and start thinking and acting strategically about working smarter.”

Here’s how Momentum works

Momentum runs as a 90-day programme, which is kick-started with The 90 Day Planning Morning. Along with our regular group calls, The Momentum Accountability System and Karen Skidmore’s advice and mentoring, you can be sure to stay focused and get the right stuff done to build and grow the business you know you deserve.

Everyone in Momentum is working towards their own business goals and marketing plans that’s going to work best for them, their clients, their way of working and their lifestyle. So rest assured, there is no competition or any need to fall into the comparisonitis trap. Although there’s no end to what you may learn from Karen and your Momentum buddies during your time at Momentum, Karen will always keep you focused on what your vision is and stop you from being sidetracked by the Shiny Shiny marketing tactics and tools that may distract you from your end goals.

Let’s show you what goes on in Momentum so you understand what’s on offer here and why this focus on accountability is so important to your long-term success.

Expert Mentoring

You’ll have access to regular group calls during your time at Momentum that will keep you on track with your progress. Each call is run by Karen Skidmore and she will answer all your questions, give you her advice and suggestions & help you make quick decisions. Karen works incredibly quickly and her ability to see the big picture allows her to cut through any crap that may be clouding your challenges or problems.

90 Day Planning Mornings

In the first week of Momentum, we meet together online for The 90 Day Planning Morning. 90 Day Plans have been a proven business tool for decades and yet very few business owners have one. So we are ditching the to-do lists and showing you how to create a simple plan, focused on the projects that will move you and your business forward.

n

Momentum Online Modules

Although Momentum is not designed to be a “how-to” course, you will have access to a few online courses, including Your Best Client, The 10 Day Conversation Challenge (if you ever get stuck on looking for new ideas on how to reach your sales tartest, this is a great course to dive into) and The True Profit Business Blueprint, designed to show you how to design and create a business to work around your values, personality type, your flow, energy, health and vitality as well as your money goals.

Supportive, Inspiring Group

This programme is intimate enough to give you personalised support as well as give you the opportunity to forge deep connections with other inspiring entrepreneurs through a private Facebook group for you to connect, share and learn with other students. We actively encourage you to connect outside the group so if you want an Accountability Buddy to pair up with, let us know.

Z

The Accountability System

Each Friday, you will be asked to submit your Accountability Report. Although a simple exercise, please don’t underestimate the power of doing this. This becomes your opportunity to take 10 to 20 minutes out of your busy week and reflect on how the last week has gone as well as what you are committing to getting done next.

Whether you’ve had an amazing week or experienced a serious s@!t storm, there is always something valuable you can learn from and support you moving forward.

o

Marketing Critiques

You’ll have the opportunity to get a critique on any piece of marketing you create during your time at Momentum; including sales letters, email copy, leaflets and web pages. The value of this is priceless, making a huge difference to your sales.

“When you’re that successful, things have momentum and, at a certain point, you can’t really tell whether you have created momentum or it’s creating you.”

Annie Lennox

Introducing Karen Skidmore, Founder of GID School & Momentum

Hi, I'm Karen Skidmore, and my mission is to love and play our way to profitable, sustainable and scalable business.

I’ve been running my own coaching and consulting company since 2004. After an 11-year fast track career with Hays Plc, as Regional Director in the accountancy recruitment division and then Operations Director for Hays.com online recruitment, my children were approaching school age and I realised how much I wanted a more flexible and fulfilling professional career.

Within 6 months of starting up, I had been awarded European Social Funds for my Women’s Enterprise Programme and Simply Marketing Workshops, which was instrumental in helping hundreds of women start up their own businesses across Surrey & Sussex. I founded a regional women’s networking group in 2005, created & ran a 100+ membership site for 3 years and launched dozens of online courses and group programmes over the past 13 years.

But in 2012, struggling with adrenal fatigue and hormonal imbalances, I was knackered from constantly launching new programmes and marketing campaigns. I wanted to play a bigger game but to enable my business to grow and for me to reach my full potential, it was no longer a case of “work harder”. I had to change the way I and my business worked. And it soon became apparent that my clients wanted this same change.

Through GID School, Momentum and The Academy, I've now created the framework and community to allow entrepreneurs, professionals, creatives and small business owners to simplify their businesses; to show them how to love and play their way to a profitable, sustainable and scalable business without the process impacting their health, wellbeing or family commitments.

OK, so what’s the investment in Momentum?

Remember, this is NOT a quick-fix marketing programme or online course. Momentum is a mentoring programme that gives you the structure to be held accountable for your plans to create a profitable, sustainable and potentially scalable business.

If you were to have Karen Skidmore personally mentor you, you’d be investing a minimum of £3,500 for the initial three month period. Plus you’d miss out on the opportunity to work and learn from an intimate group of like-minded professionals. Even with this in mind, it was important to ensure the Momentum price tag was affordable, whilst still stretch you enough to ensure you do the work needed to secure a healthy return on investment.

Your investment to get access to everything on offer here, including direct mentoring and business advice from Karen Skidmore during both the live calls and in the Facebook Group, is just £1,500 +VAT.

You have the option to pay in full and get a discount of £100. Or if you prefer the easier payment plan, you only pay £375 today and then just 3 further monthly payments of £375.

Select your option below and as soon as your order has been confirmed, we will send you your welcome pack information.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do the 90 Day Planning Mornings work?

In the first week of Momentum, we meet together online for The 90 Day Planning Morning. 90 Day Plans have been a proven business tool for decades and yet very few business owners have one. So we are ditching the to-do lists and showing you how to create a simple plan, focused on the projects that will move you and your business forward.

Your 90 Day Plan will be critical to mapping out your longer-term goals whilst still being able to manage the day-to-day of your business. You will be expected to submit your 90 Day Plan to Karen by the end of the second week so she may have a copy to keep you on track.

How many people do you have in Momentum?

Momentum is an intimate programme so we usually cap numbers at about 8 people.

What if I can't make one of the calls?

That’s OK. We get that there will be some calls you simply can’t make because of an already booked holiday or client meeting. All the calls are recorded so if you do miss one, you’ll get to listen back to the recording in your own time. If you have a burning question, simply post it in our Momentum Facebook Group and we can either answer it there or on the call if it deserves a longer, more detailed reply.

How do I access the Weekly Accountability Calls? I'm worried about phone charges.

All our Weekly Accountability Calls are accessed online. We currently use GoToMeeting which allows you to access the calls via any web browser or from your phone via their app. If you don’t have access to good wifi one week, you also have access to a phone number but please be aware that you may have call charges depending on your phone contract.

And no, we don’t use video! We have more members preferring audio only than requesting video so we have decided that all our calls are voice only. So there’s no need to worry about “putting on your face” (and yes, we know it’s not just the ladies who worry about this, is it guys?!)

Is Momentum just for women?

Whilst the majority of our clients have been women, the content, support and accountability is not gender specific and we welcome men who would like to take part in our Momentum experience.

Do you offer a guarantee?

We offer a full refund guarantee for the first 7 days of joining Momentum. If you’ve joined the first call and worked through The 90 Day Planning Morning and find that Momentum is just not the right thing for you, let us know immediately and we will happily refund your investment and cancel access to the programme for you.

What if I'm not techy - is Momentum focused solely on internet marketing?

Although we happily share with you recommendations for digital marketing tools and will help you with online marketing such as your website and social media marketing, most of the Momentum content is focused on the fundamentals of business and marketing strategy.

So don’t worry about not being techy. We keep things simple in Momentum and don’t teach the latest, fancy smancy internet marketing tricks because we know, from experience, that’s often not the quickest and easiest way to get results.

If you do want something techy set up in your business as a result of the promotion plan you create, we have a select list of suppliers and recommendations we can share with you, personally vetted by Karen Skidmore.

Just starting out or in the early stages of your business?

If you don’t feel clear on your offer or pricing or how to get a client, then the best place to start could be GID School. Click here to find out more about GID School.

Ability to laser in and identify precisely what needs to be done

You really know your stuff and you’ve got an ability to laser in and identify precisely what needs to be done.You peel away all the stuff that we don’t need to worry about to instead focus on a targeted plan.”

Cory Chapamn

Professional Organiser

So many business owners are unsure about how to develop a marketing system and don’t quite get the importance of following-up as part of any networking and list building process. I now understand that there is so much more to marketing than just networking and it involves building consistent and effective relationships and processes which, having worked through the Clicks To Clients process, I now have a system for to do that. The biggest insight for me was learning how to keep track of numbers in terms of conversions per month to run a successful business and partnership power.

Perfect mix of down to earth advice, encouragement & kick up the backside

“The prospect of launching and promoting my first online product felt overwhelming, scary and lonely. So many new technologies to learn.

Not only did the product launch successfully (without technical glitches), it also met sales targets.”
