Glowing reviews from growing businesses

The Resilient Retail Club is made up of small businesses from indie makers, online brands, Ecommerce shops and independent retailers.  This is what they say about being a member

Catherine has visited us for business coaching sessions several times and is incredibly supportive and innovative, I especially love her meticulous planning when resolving difficulties I have encountered within the business.
Janis Hendrickson
Had it not been for her webinar, her daily inspiration and the chat room with like minded individuals, we would not be experiencing the success we are in our business in such a short time all I can say is THANK YOU!!!!! If anyone ever doubted the subscription price they should not!
Nicola Hogan
There is a huge amount of support and my business is going from strength to strength through a few small tweaks to the way I post and to my web-site. I am really looking forward to next year and all the possibilities there are out there!
Jo Nash
Catherine is brilliant in helping with advice, tips and tricks. She’s opened my eyes to the possibilities of how to improve my business and to plan better with amazing tools. To be part of the group and to be able to have support from so many others as well is an amazing feeling.
Coralie Stainthorpe
Working with Catherine has been an absolute pleasure and incredibly helpful. She's very knowledgeable and knows retail inside out. She's always ready to help and her courses are gold!
Veronica Galbraith
I joined The Resilient Retail Club in 2020 and my subscription is still the best money I spend on my business each month. Catherine’s experience and advice is irreplaceable and always pragmatic for small businesses who don’t have an army of staff.
Wendy Hook
Great experience with the Resilient Retail Club, from connecting with other members, to accessing lives and recordings of informative sessions, I have found membership to be very useful.
Charlotte Loving
I've learned so much since joining the Resilient Retail Club. The courses are very helpful and it would be worth joining just for those, but there is also a very helpful community as well as regular ongoing workshops. Catherine Erdly is very hands on and always available to answer questions too.
