What is the Business Success Cafe?

It’s a weekly gathering of small business owners from around the globe. We come together via a telephone conference (with an optional webcast) to learn first-hand from a wide variety of business growth experts.

These global experts, hand-selected for their specific expertise, share with you and your peers important information and priceless tips you need to ensure your business success.

If you’ve been thinking “I need to spend more time learning how to grow my business but I can’t seem to fit it into my day” then this is the perfect solution for YOU!

The Business Success Cafe is where success-minded small business owners, just like you, gather to take a break from their hectic day, and all the problems du jour, to learn from business growth experts in a relaxed virtual environment.

Most importantly you don’t need to carve an hour or more out of your busy schedule…each event is JUST 20 minutes!

Attend from anywhere! While you do need to bring your own coffee…there is no driving, no parking, no hassles…and no tipping the barista.

Great Content in Every One!


I really enjoy the Business Success Cafe because of the content.

I got something out of every one that I have listened to.
I also like that even if I miss the on air interview I can always listen to it later, usually after my work day is done and I can really listen to it.

Keep up the good work and keep providing the good information. Thanks!

3 Steps to Making Your Love-Based Goals Come True in 2018 (and Beyond!)

with Michele PW

Frustrated with the lack of progress around your goals?

Let’s make 2018 the Year that changes!

There’s a reason you haven’t achieved your goals, and it’s probably not because you lack will power or are lazy or any of the other lies you’ve been telling yourself. It’s likely because you haven’t set yourself up for success around your goals.

In this free 20-minute presentation, Michele will walk you through:

  • What exactly are love-based goals

  • How love-based goals are different from how you’ve set goals in the past

  • What you need to do to set yourself up for success (and it’s likely been a step you skipped)

  • Pitfalls you need to be aware of that can easily derail you
  • And more!

About Michele PW

When Michele was 3 years old, she taught herself to read because she wanted to write stories so badly. As you can imagine, writing has been a driving passion throughout her life. She became a professional copywriter (which is writing promotional materials for businesses), which led to her founding a copywriting and marketing company that serves clients all over the world.

Michele holds a double major in English and Communications from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and she's the author of the bestselling "Love-Based Business" series of books, which includes "Love-Based Copy," "Love-Based Online Marketing," and "Love-Based Money and Mindset." These books share how you can sell more with love and build a solid, profitable business on a foundation of love versus a foundation of fear.

Absolutely Amazing!


The content that Cathy provides each week on her Success Cafe is absolutely amazing.

What makes it such a great program is the diversity of topics covered and the fact that each speaker is challenged to present tons of content within a 20 minute coffee break.

As a result, I've been exposed to many ideas that I would not have had the opportunity to see otherwise.

Charge What You’re Worth!

with Carrie Greene

Most service based business owners struggle to earn a solid income because they don't have enough clients...or they don't charge their clients enough.

It all comes down to understanding your own value. When you understand your value your sales conversations are much easier, AND you feel confident charging a lot more for your services.

In just 20 minutes you'll learn:

• The 5 components of your value that will empower every aspect of what you do.

• The specific activities you need to do to help prospects say "YES".

• How to use what you know from your previous jobs to increase your rates.

• How to identify what makes you unique.

• How to set boundaries so you'll know when and how to say NO with confidence.
