BIZZ Fast Track Programme (3 Months)
Do you want to start or grow a business?
Struggling to start a business or have already started your own business, but don’t know what to do next (or just want to know more about entrepreneurship), we can support and guide you!
What can we do together?
We will cut through the noise, complexity, buzz words and tell you in simple terms what you really need to know to start, launch and grow a successful business and brand. Taking you through the essential building blocks to help you and your business move forward, completing exercises, templates and questions to implement the learning into your business.
Why The Simple Series team?
Over the last 10 years we have helped thousands of entrepreneurs, starts-ups, SME’s, business owners, directors, founders, CEO’s to start and grow phenomenal businesses.
We believe that the best way to learn is by being yourself and utilising your entrepreneurial mindset. The Simple Series fast track programme is the perfect 3-month experience that puts the practical application of new and existing skills, talents and knowledge with mindfulness at its core.
Imagine being able to unlock your entrepreneurial mindset to build or improve upon your own business, to launch your project and gain added success not just for you but your team, customers and community.
Part of our initiative is to grow the local and national entrepreneurial culture with an emphasis currently on the UK and Ireland economies. We will support any entrepreneur or business owner from pre-start, early stage, late stage or those looking for diversity in these challenging times.
Our programmes are people led and people driven.
*Additionally, we can tap into our network of successful entrepreneurs where you can gain added knowledge and insights.
What are we promising you?
Our promise is to guide and encourage you through these changing times.
Maybe one option right now is to build upon your vision, create your own job, by starting a business. Trust us, this is easier than you think! As little as twenty years ago you would need a large capital sum, a strong business plan and a great bank manager just to get started.
With our help and guidance, we can show you how to build your products, services, business and brand at a minimal cost and of course making sure you have a viable business model before spending too much money on branding, websites, company set-ups etc.
Another option is to be able to reposition your current business, step back for a little while and focus on working on your business instead of constantly working in your business. This is where growth can be truly found.
Whichever option you decide, we can support you! One thing we are sure of you’ll develop your entrepreneurial skillset and mindset so that you can launch and grow your business with ease and confidence whilst sharing your unique style.

Hear it straight from our initial fabulous cohort.
“Really enjoying the programme, feeling like a complete novice with the business side of things but with Shirley and the team’s very supportive and knowledgeable expertise – I know we will excel.” – Keeley
“I feel like I’m starting to see things a lot clearer when it comes to running a business and although the tools I am learning were for a future business that I will be starting when all this madness is over, to my surprise I can also implement them with my current business too. This programme is most definitely for anyone either in business or starting up with an idea.
I can honestly say if it wasn’t for Shirley and the team supporting me when I was feeling down a few weeks back I wouldn’t be where I am now with this clear and informative programme. Thank you.” – Heather
“I am really enjoying the programme. The biggest thing for me is my motivation and lately it’s something I’ve lacked. However, when I read one of the Simple Series Facebook posts or after 5 minutes into the live sessions, I’m geared right back up. Phenomenal support by both mentors who are filled with knowledge and it is such a lovely group of people to be on this journey with.” – Monique
“I have found that working in a group like this is very supportive and engaging, as well as the presence, knowledge and participation of our great mentors, Shirley and the team. They instil a positive and simple approach to overcome fears, doubts and accompanying us optimistically towards our success.” – Emanuela
“Thanks for everything. This programme is really helping me focus on what is important and what I want for the business. And it’s definitely filling the gaps in my business knowledge.” – Sandi
“I’ve gained, learnt and build so many valuable skills during the time on the programme and I couldn’t recommend it enough! Support has been fantastic; we are always encouraged and it’s the best feeling growing your business but not having to do it all fully on your own!” – Steph
“This programme gave me access to knowledgeable, experienced and supportive business mentors and a lovely group of people who are in a similar position to me. It is a brilliant place to learn, progress, share losses, wins and offers invaluable support and guidance. It’s provided me with direction when I’ve felt unsure, lost my way and confidence. Highly recommend the Simple Series team and their programmes.” – Clare
