Master Franchisors - discover the boost your brand needs to succeed

Franchises come with a proven business model, but that doesn’t guarantee their success. As a franchisor, it’s likely you ensure your franchisees have the systems and product support they need to get started. But where to from there? Creating sustainable success takes continual business development. Without the right tools, and the training to implement them, your franchisees may struggle to maintain a profitable operation. Most master franchisors don’t have the time or resource to invest in business coaching for each of their franchisees, but the long-term growth of your business rests on their ability to run a successful business.


Breakthrough Business HQ is a hub of knowledge, strategies and resources that your franchisees can leverage for continual growth. Our resources go above and beyond, giving operators the important skills they need to achieve incredible results for their business – and yours.

Breakthrough Business HQ is designed for business owners who are committed to the success of their individual business, and the overall growth of the franchise.

After years of helping businesses, big and small, achieve rapid growth, Fiona has pulled together her extensive knowledge, tools and training and made it available here. This is your opportunity to give value back to your franchisees, while ensuring a profitable enterprise for you.


The great thing about buying a franchise business is that you already know you’re onto a good thing. However, not all franchises are created equal.

While you may get great systems and product training and support to get you started, you could find that there are still gaps in your knowledge and skills when it comes to running, maintaining and growing a profitable business. The difference between having a good business, and a great business will be in the effort you put in to learning and developing the necessary skills and strategies to generate new clients, increase sales, build a strong team and maximise profits.



One of Fiona’s passions is teaching small businesses how to sell. More often than not, business owners lack the confidence to ask for the sale, they’re not great at following up and closing to get that sale across the line. We’ve created this helpful sales guide so you can leverage every single sale opportunity you get and increase the dollar value per sale as well as the customer experience.

Turned a part-time business into a full-time reality!

“I was looking for a business coach to help me figure out how to reach my goal of taking my part-time business and making it full-time employment for myself. I came across Fiona and we worked together to develop a detailed plan for the next 12 months, with monthly tasks that will enable me to reach that goal. After using Fiona’s services I now have a clear plan for the coming months which I feel is very achievable. I can’t wait to come back again to see Fiona next year when I’m ready to tackle the next stage in growing my business!”

Sales Module is a GAME CHANGER!

“Since joining the Fast Track Start Up Program™ I have written myself a comprehensive 90-day action plan and am actively checking in on it to make sure I’m on target. The systems module helped me realise that I’m more of a visual-tactile person so I’ve created a post-it note wall with my sales targets and pipeline – now it’s not hidden away on my computer and I look at it much more often. I’m also actually excited about sales!!!  It doesn’t feel half as scary anymore and I’m even looking forward to following up leads and putting my new skills into practice! The sales module has been a game changer for me. I’ve realised there were so many holes in my sales process that was losing me a lot of money!  I’m now feeling really confident about bringing in more business and actually converting it when I do.  I’m also going to follow up proposals now rather than just leaving them with the client.”

Fiona is by far the best coach I’ve had!

“Before working with Fiona, my biggest fear/worry about hiring a coach was that I’d end up spending a lot of money & not getting much out of it. I chose Fiona & her BreakThrough Women in Business Program after researching a huge number of coaches, because it was important for me to find someone who was capable & able to make a measurable difference to my business.I’ve worked with mentors in the past but Fiona is by far the best coach I have had! I definitely made the right choice! The results from working with Fiona & the BreakThrough Women in Business Program were a total success! Fiona has helped me organize, structure, set & meet targets, clarify and the amount that I’ve achieved working alongside her has been amazing! I have received real value working together with Fiona & I say if you are thinking of getting Fiona on board, Do it! You’ll see results quickly!
