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!

To Be Announced

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.

​The Experts Sales and Marketing Manifesto:
How to Build a Lucrative 7-Figure
Coaching, Consulting, Advisory or Agency Business in the Digital Age

Daniel Levis is back at the Business Success Cafe again and this time he’s going to teach about a topic that’s near and dear to the heart of pretty much everyone who attends the “Cafe” events.

And that is...Lead Generation.

In particular, lead generation for anyone who sells a high-ticket service or program… but struggles to command the kind of fees they’re worth or can’t find enough prospects to sell to.

If you want to learn unusual (and counter-intuitive) ways to skyrocket your client enrollment… shorten the buying cycle… increase cash-flow… and eradicate sales famine in mere days then...

...This is a “do not miss” even if you’re just starting out and don’t know what you don’t know when it comes to building a thriving and fulfilling business around your own knowledge and expertise.

This training will free you from the feast or famine, roller coaster income peaks and valleys that plague most coaches, consultants, advisors and agencies… and allow you to finally create a truly scalable business that doesn’t have you locked in the all-too-common dollars for hours trap that hamstrings so many.

About Daniel Levis

Daniel Levis has been building and monetizing email lists for himself and his clients since 2004.

Throughout that time he has engineered, tested, and refined dozens of list building and lead generation campaigns and spied on over 2,000,000 subscribers at each step of the acquisition funnel… as they opted in to those campaigns and interacted with over 10,000 discrete email messages that Daniel wrote and then sent to those subscribers.

If you’re an investor, you’ve probably seen his work for The Motley Fool, Safe Money Report, Real Wealth Report, Gold Newsletter and other well-known financial publications.

If you’ve ever looked for a business opportunity… bought a self help course… or been interested in information for bettering your health… you may have seen his work with Mark Victor Hansen, Robert Allen, Dr. Stephen Sinatra, and others.

...Cannot wait for another one!


learned some information that I can use right away in my business. I appreciate the help and support...cannot wait for another great presentation.
