You know what you want from your RTO business and yet it seems that at every turn you reach a dead-end and you’re left questioning where to turn next.


One thing isn’t clear: how to get there.


You’re probably overwhelmed by how much there is to do and frustrated that you seem to be the only one who can do it all.


That’s where I come in. I’ve managed, marketed, optimised and trained and mentored many RTO businesses.  I know what it’s like being on the inside, I’ve studied, learned from mistakes and NOW I’m here to share with you my GOLD. 

Your RTO vision looks something like this:

  • A thriving RTO business that satisfies your ambition, allows you to grow and be more than ‘the doer of all things’


  • To exceed your financial goals and have the lifestyle you really want


  • More balance, not less


Whether you’re looking to set-up an RTO, grow or scale your existing RTO business, I am here to support you, both commercially and personally, so that you can create a business with impact and one that you are proud of.


Your RTO will be aligned with your bigger life goals, your values and, importantly, it will see financial success. 


Maybe you’re confused about what to prioritise, and just wish you knew what would really move the needle for you?

Or perhaps you’re just tired of grinding so hard but not getting ahead, watching everyone else around you succeed.

I’ve been there.

Having built & managed multiple RTO businesses, I know the enormous amount of things there are to do in building, managing the compliance, undertaking the marketing and running the businesses.

Once you are through the RTO set-up audit hurdle then you need run the business. I know how overwhelming it can be – it’s like you’re supposed to be an expert in marketing, law, accounting, HR, RTO compliance, training… the list goes on and on…

But I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be like that.

In helping you to become an RTO and improve your business, I draw on over 20 years of experience in managing corporate divisions and businesses, in marketing, sales, and managing RTO’s and their compliance. All of that experience is backed-up with 15+ years’ experience of coaching and mentoring, as well as my successful entrepreneurial experience. So in working with me, you will find I draw upon the lessons learnt from failures, successes and feedback to help YOU on your journey to enjoy more time and freedom.


You’re in safe hands

Merinda is a wonderful business coach and mentor and extremely professional at what she does. She assisted me to step back and work on the business, rather than in the business. It was this that had a huge part in us winning the Gold Award at the WA Awards and the Bronze Award at the Australian Awards.

5 RTO ideas to do right now

Normally I would ask for a breakdown of the next 90 days, yet at this point in time, I think that is too far ahead. 90 days can overwhelm you, so let’s break it down, and commence with 30 days.

So set a plan for what you wish to accomplish within the business, and for you.

💜💜 Purpose – know your why for doing what you intend – have a number 1 goal.

💜💜 Plan – plan your actions, remove the panic. Be clear on what it is to move forward.

💜💜 Passion – have passion, drive or energy. Be energised to conquer the way forward.

Focus on what’s your #1 goal for the next 30 days. Personally and professionally.
