What is the private coaching group and how does it work?

A real benefit of this course is that you become a member of our private facebook coaching group where you can as us anything and we will answer. It is a very cost effective way of getting our knowledge and experience. 
Your first months membership of the private group is included in the purchase price, then there is a recurring payment for as long as you want to be in the coaching group.

I'm not on Facebook.

When you have a cafe or coffee shop you will need to have a Facebook account to manage the pages for your business and do any advertising etc. You should sign up for Facebook with the minimum of details and set up your pages - if you don't Facebook will set one up for you anyway and you will have no control of the content.

Can I just buy the course without joining the private coaching group?

You get a free month of the coaching group included in when you buy the course, if you don't want to continue or even join the group email us after purchase and we will cancel the ongoing subscription.

"Well I have finally completed the training, and what an eye-opener it has been ( in a good way ) - I now have to get down to the hard graft of completing all the spreadsheets and working everything out properly. Thank you so much for all the hard work you have put in to producing these videos, this will make a massive difference in the way I approach the whole thing."

Dayna Winter

brew | twenty three

"Andrew and Claire were a crucial part in my decision in opening my first site, I met them coincidentally (or by fate) about six months before I opened
brew | twenty three.
They shared their knowledge, passion and advice with me as if they were opening their own site - they both genuinely cared (and still do). They continued to go above and beyond, responded to all my questions and gave me so many points to consider that I wouldn't have thought of.
I was extremely clear on my vision of
brew | twenty three and Andrew and Claire never lost sight of that for me and adapted their processes tailored to my business.
 Andrew and Claire are two of the most genuine, caring, patient and calming people I have worked with and I would recommend them to anyone opening (or thinking of opening) their own shop, no matter their vision.
