Does this sounds familiar…

  • You have a great idea or hobby that you want to take to market, but you aren’t sure how

  • Your market stall or online shop is up and running but it’s not going as well as you would like and you need ideas and support to go the next step

  • You are already selling at markets or online but would like to sell more.

We kept hearing these things from creatives, just like you, getting stuck in your pursuit to creating a thriving creative business. We know it can be a mindfield trying to get quality advice and support.

Introducing Growth Quarters Mastermind

The Growth Quarters mastermind is a select group of small businesses all with similar business models (selling creative products at markets and online) who work together to grow and improve each-other’s businesses.  The group is facilitated by Perth Upmarket creator, Justine Barsley and her team of specialists.

Growth Quarters is packed with practical training and resouces. It facilitates a combination of brainstorming, discussion and peer accountability to sharpen your business and personal skills. This mastermind group will challenge you to set greater goals, and more importantly, to accomplish them. 

Members of our community are at various levels of business, from passionate start-ups to long-term established businesses growing to the next level. 

Here’s What Some Of Our Members Have To Say:

"Growth Quarters has helped me connect with other businesses that have, in return, helped me grow my business in so many different ways. Running a small business can be lonely so Growth Quarters has connected me with other local businesses and has mentored me through an initial growth period in the biz process. Exploring and researching the best postage options for Lovebug Designs and workshopping different ways to source fabric and materials has been invaluable to the growth of my small business."
"Growth Quarters is a fantastic resource of materials and has helped me keep on track and make goals for each week. I’m pretty good at goal setting and prioritising my to do list but I tend to take on too much, so the items in Growth Quarters has helped me break it down into bite sized pieces to stop the overwhelm. The 14 day Facebook bootcamp was gold and the Tuesday goal setting keeps me accountable to get that one item done … completely!"
"I am lucky enough to have been involved in the pilot for the Growth Quarters Mastermind. Despite being a bit of a market veteran, I have been surprised by how much I have learnt. It’s been a great way to brush up on your knowledge and to learn new techniques. As a solo entrepreneur, the accountability aspect is invaluable. I cannot wait to continue with the course as it grows and to continuing improve my skills and knowledge. Thanks Justine!"

How Was Growth Quarters Born?

“After working with market stall owners for over a decade through my market event business, Perth Upmarket, I heard the same questions again and again… I saw that one thing stopping creatives succeed was that they did not have the tools, resources or accountability to get them to where they needed to be.  

I really wanted to help market stall owners create successful thriving businesses, not just at markets, but also in between. I’ve had my own market stall business for over 15 years, and Ive drawn on my business and learning design experience to share how I’ve achieved great success with selling more online, at markets, to wholesalers, with online marketing and lots more.  I wanted to provide creatives with the tools and support to grow so they can create abundance for themselves, their families and their communities.  

For the last 4 years I personally have been part of a mastermind group myself with other business owners and have been investing about $500/month to keep at the forefront of my industry. I receive tremendous value from it and wanted to bring a similar concept to my customers in a much more leveraged, flexible and affordable fashion. That’s how Growth Quarters was born.”
