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

I've worked with Catherine as part of her membership and as a 1-1 client and she has really helped me get into the numbers of the business (something I'd very much shied away from previously) Catherine is a real wealth of knowledge when it comes to running a product based business and I felt fully understood and supported at a time when I was questioning how best to grow the business in a manageable way
Lauren Derrett
I can't recommend working with Catherine enough! I've been working with her on a one to one basis since 2020, and I credit working with her with transforming my business from kitchen table start up to award-winning brand. She is incredibly knowledgeable, thoughtful, supportive and practical.
Paula Warwick
I have recently had a business audit with Catherine and I honestly cannot recommend working with her enough. Catherine is an ideas machine, perfectly in tune with the challenges a small business owner can face and all about making your goals achievable. Thoroughly recommend.
Charlotte Loving
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!
