Get hands-on help to move your business forward with mentoring, marketing and membership to The Business Connection – all for an affordable monthly fee.

You need this package if you are a sole trader, sole business owner or solopreneur who has recently started up their own business, or you have been going for a while but are feeling stuck in a rut and don’t know what to do next.

With the Start-up or Stuck package you get me in your corner, helping you figure it all out and actually rolling my sleeves up to take on some of those marketing tasks that fall outside of your realm of experience and expertise.

What you get…


Marketing is an essential part of any business.

As part of your Start-up or Stuck package, you get 4 hours a month of my hands-on help with:


  • Branding
  • Graphic Design (adverts, leaflets, social media profile headers, social media templates)
  • Press Release
  • Website Audit
  • Social Media Audit
  • Copywriting (for website or social media profiles)
  • Website design (additonal costs for domain names and hosting)


Being a solo business owner can be a lonely business if you have no one to share your ideas with, ask for advice and input or set goals and action plans with.

As part of your Start-up or Stuck package, you get a one hour mentoring session with me, where you get the opportunity to work ON your business rather than just in it.

You are in the driving seat for your session – we can talk about whatever chanllenge you are facing in your business, but topics we can cover include:


  • Your Mindset – You are your business and if your mindset is not right you could be standing in the way of your own success.
  • Goal-setting – If you don’t know what you’re aiming for how do you know if you’re heading in the right direction?
  • Planning and productivity – Do you have the right systems in place for the day-to-day running of your business? Are you spending your time on the right things? Do you have an action plan?
  • Overcoming obstacles or challenges
  • Growth – is it time to outsource or take on a new team member?


To build a successful business you need the right skills, knowledge and people around you who just “get it”.

The Business Connection is a community bringing together solo and micro business owners to support each other.

As part of your monthly Start-up or Stuck package you get Essential-level membership, entitling you to a range of benefits:


  • Free networking sessions
  • Free group mentoring sessions
  • Free Accountability and Planning sessions
  • Business Promotion opportunities
  • Access to an exclusive members’ Facebook group
  • Business Directory Listing
  • Business Buddy

Build your own package

Every small business is different and I know that sometimes what suits one small business owner does not serve another.

Which is why my services are flexible to allow you to build a package that is tailor-made to meet your needs.

For example, you may need more than four hours’ help each month with your solo business marketing, or feel you would like more frequent mentoring sessions – either weekly or fortnightly.

Meet your new Business Bestie

Hi, I’m Tracey,

If anyone knows how hard it is to juggle all the balls as a small business owner, I do.

I have been a small business owner since 2014 when, after a 20+ years’ career as a journalist, I teamed up with three colleagues to launch an independent newspaper in my home town.

In 2018 I left to start my own marketing company, Red Shoes Media & Marketing, which has helped scores of small businesses use the power of websites, print and social media to reach new audiences and target new customers.

I’m now bringing together my marketing expertise with the experience I have had in running my own business to help other solo business owners get started or get unstuck.

So if you are ready to grow, press the button and let’s go!
