Academy of Small Business Owners (AoSBO)

Welcome to AoSBO (or ASBO for short). We're Jayne Chudley and John Borland.

We have got real life experience successfully building, growing and running small businesses (even if we haven’t got a business qualification to rub together between us!).

Our experience comes from past successes and failures so we can pass on to you the lessons we've learned.

AoSBO is not about business theories and unrealistic goals, it’s a learning environment that empowers you to take your business to the next level in your way.

Is AoSBO for me?

We know what it takes to be a Small Business Owner.

So, if you have a desire to grow your business in your own way, be inspired in your thinking and become part of a learning environment of like-minded people then contact us to see how we can help.

MONTHLY ASBO WORKSHOP MEETINGS

Where Jayne, John or one of our members will get us wrestling with some of the challenges of small business and figuring out how we move past them.

121 BUSINESS INSIGHT MENTORING SESSIONS

You can access four of these per year with either Jayne or John whenever the need arises. They are each 1 hour sessions that allow you to get some real focussed time working through your specific business issue.

UNLIMITED EMAIL SUPPORT

If you’ve got a query, question, issue that you’d like some support with then at any point, as often as you like you can drop us an email about it and Jayne or John will get back to you with their thoughts. And if its something they don’t know, then they’ll point you in the direction of someone who does.

SCHEDULED PHONE CALL SUPPORT

If there’s something you’d rather talk through with Jayne or John then you can book in a 20 minute phone call with them as often as you’d like.

MEMBERS ONLY BLOG & VLOG PAGE

Jayne and John will be blogging and vlogging regularly on a members only page which obviously only you and other members can see. You’ll be able to comment, ask questions and start discussions with other members

FREEBIES

We’ll chuck in a goodie bag for joining and from time to time we’ll throw some useful freebies your way too.

I first met Jayne at a networking event and immediately liked the honesty, truth and portrayal of her time in business. I was inspired by the way she talked about the steep learning curves she had gone through whilst running her business and this was just how I was feeling as a new business owner...
