We are honest about our wins and about when we screw up so that you can learn from us and understand that we are human, just like you!!

You are right for TGMB:

  • if you want to learn how to make a profit instead of hoping that somebody will buy something.
  • If you need to generate more marketing ideas and focus on your clients.
  • If you want to get past all that self doubt and make a kick A$$ business
  • If you just don't know what direction to go.
  • If you are doing ok but know you could do better
  • If your not doing so well and need to restructure
  • If your doing really well but not making any money
  • If you are curious about what we are up to

You are not right if:

  • You are not serious about being a Professional
  • You want someone to do all the work for you
  • You are a BIG Portrait Studio
  • You want to make money from photographing Landscapes, Wine Bottles or Jewelry.
  • You have just bought a camera and want to start a business but have not yet learned how to use it.

    We strongly believe that business can be better, it doesn't need to be so isolated and hard. We want to support your small business by giving you great advice, marketing strategies, social networking strategies to help anyone that needs it.

    To build a business that you absolutely love is scary. We are that someone that you can call on to help. You are not alone any more. We will show you how to find the value that you bring to your client. We will show you how to attract the kind of client that you dream of. Join us today.

    I first met the TGMB girls at one of their seminars here in Adelaide about business pricing. It was particularly relevant to me as I a struggling photography business starting out and having trouble with pricing. I had nearly given up on my business, in fact. I went to the seminar and to have all of this fantastic info given to me which was so relevant - by women who owned actual, real life photography businesses - well it just clicked with me. I felt so much encouragement, especially after talking to the girls personally after the lecture! I really learned a lot about how to set up and price my business so that it could actually turn around and for the first time in ages, I really felt positive and encouraged. I believe that the seminar and all of the info we have received as a part of this group has helped me learn what I needed to and also have the confidence to try it - which I have! I now charge what I should have been charging and things are going so much better. Business saved!

    We believe “A Rising Tide Floats All Boats” and that is what we want to achieve.

    Yes this is a site that is being built to make us money! No doubt about that! But we also believe strongly in the product that we have here. We worked out what would be helpful to us in our businesses and will be bringing that to you 4 times each month.
