Six Sussex Success Stories

Tell us where to send you the stories of six highly profitable, self-funded businesses that were started by people like you in Sussex.

The government, the media and most people you know don't seem interested in the things you care about

  • You want to build a lasting businesses not a high-risk startup.
  • You want to self-fund your way to success not depend on external funding.
  • You want to focus on creating value for your customers not trading your time for money.
  • You want to enjoy a calm work environment and a great work-life balance not getting stressed over arbitrary deadlines.
  • You want to continuously learn from people doing things differently not do as has always been done.

Life. Time. Value. Conference has been created for you

It's not a typical business networking event. You won't see any suits, ties and big egos. And it's not a "tech startup" conference either. You won't hear any pitches or meet any wannabe unicorns.

  • Maybe you're a lone freelancer with a day rate you're happy with. But you wish you weren't so dependent on such a small number of clients.
  • Maybe you're an agency owner with a few employees. But you don't want your growth to depend on you employing even more people.
  • Maybe you have a product business (book, software or online course) that's making a healthy profit every year. But you're looking for new ways for it to give you more freedom.

You'll meet people like you

You'll have a chance to really get to know other participants and their approaches to business. You'll hear from speakers who are applying new (mostly internet supported) approaches to growing their businesses. And you'll come away with a list of actions you can immediately start taking to improve your business.

Packed with actionable advice

Here are three of the many things you'll learn if you attend this year:

  1. How you can automate your marketing to create a continuous pipeline of sales. (You can go way beyond email sequences that convert while you sleep)
  2. Why and how you should prepare your business for sale. (This will make your life better even if you have no plans to sell)
  3. How you can make your business fit your family's lifestyle. (Husband and wife teams are behind many of the best businesses)

Last year's attendees included leaders from:

...alongside dozens of freelancers and small business owners.

  • Hannah Martin

    I loved the day. It was packed with fantastic value (I took SOOO many notes!) and was inspiring to be around so many fellow online entrepreneurs (speakers and other attendees). It also had a friendly, fun and laid back atmosphere - way less corporate than other events I have been to (which is a good thing!). I have been recommending you to people for next year already, and I will certainly be back

  • Running a digital business is lonely. Sometimes especially when you have a room full of people that you are working with or are working for you. Being around others that know that pain and are like you in so many different ways was one of the most encouraging things I have had happen to me in a while.

    Robin Mayfield
  • Izzy Crouch

    If you are serious about a product business you'll need to know what you are doing to avoid mistakes and this conference will help to guide you in the right direction and think very strategically about how to start making money.

  • The people chosen to speak inspired me that I can follow in their footsteps. I feel like I had a positive push in the direction of my goal.

    Simon Rowland
  • Joanne Munro

    The info from the experts was so valuable that you can make the ticket price back almost immediately by applying some of the things they suggested. They could also prevent someone from making a costly mistake thus saving them the ticket price that way too.

  • The conference was intimate, inclusive and highly relevant for the audience. The speakers shared solid advice and told good stories.

Been through the VC-mill. Technology guy, but loves making things, not the technology itself.

Jon and Andy have spent over ten years working with digital product businesses. Although software engineers by trade, they’ve seen first-hand how technology is far from the most important thing in digital product businesses.

They’ve felt the soul-crushing results of too many investment-fixated startups. They’ve enjoyed the rewards of seeing independent businesses flourish through bootstrapping their own way to success.
