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.

3 Steps To Understanding What REALLY
Motivates Your Best Clients

When you begin marketing your next big thing, your first questions will be "What does my audience want? How can I relate to them?"

Most business owners begin by defining a customer avatar that sounds something like, "Women over 30 living in the midwest, married and working for big corporations."

Not exactly helpful to write your copy. 

There IS a better way.

In today’s 20 minutes of training, you'll discover: 

  • Why your client's backstory could also be called your client's "baggage story"
  • Why understanding your client's backstory makes it much easier to write copy, plan your launch and avoid 2 common mistakes
  • 3 essential steps to uncover your client's backstory (the third step is most useful - and almost no one ever uses it)


You’ll discover how to join the conversation in your client’s mind, so you create more effective content, design products that clients are eager to buy, and build stronger relationships with your best clients. 

About Cathy Goodwin

Most business owners make marketing a lot harder than it has to be. That’s because they haven’t claimed their marketing advantage - not just telling a story but telling the right story for your unique services and offers. Your marketing will become 10X more productive when your story responds to your client’s backstory.

Dr. Cathy Goodwin helps service-based businesses use their story to create an online presence that attracts clients and helps them stand out in a professional way.

A former marketing professor, Cathy has lived all over North America (including Alaska and Canada), now happily settled in Philadelphia with two adopted cats who refuse to share their stories.

Business Owners Love the Business Success Cafe!
