Who is Momentum for?

If you’re done with chasing over-hyped marketing ideas. If you’ve had enough of “yet another online course”.

If you’re fed up and frustrated that you don’t seem to be getting any traction on your big ideas.

If you love the freedom of being your own boss but without accountability or direction or focus, you’re drowning information overload.

Then Momentum is for you.

  • You need to make more sales but the stuff you’re spending your time on isn’t working.
  • You want to launch your new programme or product, but you never seem to have the time or motivation to make it happen.
  • You’re stuck chasing your to-do list and being busy for the sake of being busy.
  • You have so many plans and big ideas but you’re overwhelmed by the enormity of what has to be done.
  • You know you have to get more visible but fear and doubt stop you from “putting yourself out there”.
  • You don’t want a boss 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.

It’s time to stop wearing the Busy Badge of Honour and start focusing your time and efforts on the right stuff that will grow you and your business.

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.

Simplicity & Focus

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. You need a plan that is simple and focused on the right stuff to meet your financial goals.

Accountability

You love the freedom of being your own boss but this makes it easy to drift or to talk yourself out of stuff that feels uncomfortable or scary. You realise that you need to supported, encouraged as well as get the occasional kick up the backside to be kept on track.

Courage

You realise you need to uplevel your thinking and find a new group of like-minded entrepreneurs who will help you find the courage to work on the stuff that you know will make the difference to your growth.

“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. We kick-start the process in the first two weeks with getting clear with your Vision & Strategy, followed by The 90 Day Planning Process.

Then 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 are 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

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 a very personal programme, which means Karen gets to know you and your business goals very well, so we usually cap numbers at about 8 new members each 90 Day Cycle.

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 group calls? I'm worried about phone charges.

All our group calls are accessed online. We currently use Zoom 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.

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.

What happens after the 12 weeks - can I still get ongoing support?

Yes, you can. We run three 90 Day cycles every year, starting in January, April and September. If you find the 90 Day Planning Process works for you, you can carry on stay as a Momentum member for just £95 +VAT a month. This will give you access to the live Planning Mornings and fortnightly calls during each of the 90 Day cycles, plus year-round access to the Facebook group.

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.

Want to speak to us before you book?

If you're unsure whether this is really the right programme for you or you want to check times and dates of any of the live sessions, call us during UK office hours on (01428) 607745 or email Alexia Padgham at Alexia@KarenSkidmore.com

Gave me focus on what matters

“As a creative person who is motivated by action rather than committing to a strategic vision, working with Karen and using this planning process of hers was the most productive I’ve been in years. Karen’s planning process helped me focus on what matters right now versus having a massive list of stuff that makes me feel so overwhelmed I get nothing done.”

Helen Evans

Spiritual coach & fingerprint analyst

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.

Caroline Graham

Chartered Health and Safety Consultant

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. Plus the prospect of writing sales letters filled me with horror. Karen gave me the perfect mix of down to earth marketing advice, positive encouragement, combined with the (gentle and friendly) kick up the backside I needed. Not only did the product launch successfully (without technical glitches), it also met sales targets.”

Mark Ridsell Smith

Vertical Veg Club

Karen gets to the heart of your business and business objectives with her great questions and ability to really listen. She will be ambitious for your success and really helps translate that into practical, actionable steps.

Frances Taylor

Quiet the chatter and calm the creative whirlwind

“What I love about working with Karen is that she lives and breathes the KISS principle. She understands what each person needs for their business and guides them down the simplest and most productive path to achieve their goals. Her advice and counsel helped quiet all the chatter in my head and calm the creative whirlwind.”

Wendy Deyell

Wondrous Wanderers

I love Karen's straight talking, no-bullshit approach.

Sam Pilling

Bite Me Marketing

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

“Working you has given me a new approach to marketing my business in ways I just wouldn’t have thought of. 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.”
