Community, Coaching and Mentorship for the new and emerging entrepreneur who doesn’t want to grow her new business alone.

Building a business from scratch is difficult. You start with passion, drive and a desire to make a difference. Sustaining that drive and passion is another story. Sometimes the journey gets lonely. Sometimes you need external motivation to keep going. Sometimes you just don’t know what to do next. And the issue that plagues almost every coach or consultant is How do I Consistently get Clients in the Door?

Now Enrolling for 2023

Look no further! The Aligned Business Collective is here.

The Aligned Business Collective is a suite of business services, offerings and community experience designed with the new and growing solopreneur business owner in mind.   Are you looking to express your business with clarity and intention, but you are not sure what that looks like?

Susan Elford Coaching & Consulting

You’ve chosen this path because you want the freedom and ability to share your unique gift with the world.

Your passion and drive has taken your business from concept to inception but now your tank is running on empty.

You’ve had to learn it all yourself because you haven’t found the support you’re looking for, for women entrepreneurs who truly want to make an impact on their lives, the lives of those around them and the lives of others they work with.

Until now.

I’m Susan Elford, and I’m proud to introduce the Aligned Business Collective.

I started my first business in 2003, just 18 short months after the birth of my first child. I knew pretty quickly that the traditional corporate lifestyle wasn’t the lifestyle I wanted to raise my family in. I knew there was more to life and more than one way to make my impact on the world.

Fast forward almost 20 years, and I’ve worked with countless business owners, individuals and industries to grow their organizations, harness the impact they’re here to make and make a name for themselves on their own terms.

The Aligned Business Collective is the result of these many experiences. Inside the Collective, I have designed a premiere learning, coaching and mentorship platform to harness the combined impact of the essential elements the female business owner needs when she’s building her business from the ground up.

These include:

  1. Clarity of Focus
  2. Communication Strategies and Tools
  3. Confidence to make it happen and powered by a 
  4. Community who will have your back when you don’t know where to turn and who will celebrate your achievements with you.

So, what are you waiting for? Register for a free, no-pressure call with me to see if the Aligned Business Collective is the right fit for you this year.

What is a mastermind? Masterminds are living proof that,as Aristotle said, “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” Through small group learning and accountability, a Mastermind environment invites a small group to meet and grow together consistently. It has been proven that these small group environments increase confidence and when combined with learning and bespoke coaching, can help the individual achieve more than they would on their own.
