Make it Happen!

Do you find you are sometimes overwhelmed in running your business? You have lots of ambition and ideas, but sometimes it is hard to know where to start and how to put it all together! You know your business needs to earn decent money, and that means hard work, but you also want to maintain a healthy work-life balance. 2020 was a year like no other! It has had an effect on us financially, but also on our business confidence, self-esteem and on the general issues that go along with business ownership. Making pricing review decisions can be hard, and even scary; we need to keep our people and our clients safe. We want to move forward with confidence and security.

At Shine Business, we want to help you grow your business in 2021. By getting organised, planning ahead and reviewing our activity in a regular and consistent way, we become more confident, more ambitious, make better business decisions and enjoy a better lifestyle.

Broken down into easy-to-manage sections, our ‘Make it Happen’ Diary & Planner will help you: feel more in control; know that you are charging the right amount;  market your business and brand well and regularly; become more business confident – so you can make the progress you deserve!

Orbit Shine Business Claire Macleod & Diane Murray
Claire Macleod & Diane Murray

We are Claire and Diane and together we run Shine business. We have created this community-based business to support small business in the Hair & Beauty sector. We know how much you as a business owner are juggling. We know your time is precious and there are many demands on it. We have a heart for the Hair & Beauty sector and a passion to support you with our business and marketing expertise.

We know it is important to work together

First and foremost, we are small business owners ourselves. In 2009, we independently set up our own small business support sole trader offerings – Diane offering marketing and business support and Claire delivering marketing and HR support. We know the ups and downs of starting and running a business from the kitchen table, growing and nurturing it and reaching new clients.

We know it is important to work together. In 2014, we decided to merge our independent businesses and form Orbit Agency.  We recognised the strength and power in working together to support each other and our clients. We have never looked back! We wholeheartedly believe that we are better when we support each other.  This is a central part of who we are and how we work with our clients.

We are also very active in our voluntary lives. (Claire has been a business aftercare advisor and mentor for over a decade with the Princes Trust.) Over the years we have supported a range of successful hair and beauty businesses. It is our privilege to come alongside as you work through your business lives and support enterprising individuals who take that big decision to join the world of self-employment!

We love Hair & Beauty! Last but not least, we are both enthusiastic and passionate consumers of hair and beauty products and services. We love your businesses as clients and customers and are delighted to be able to work with you on a professional level too. We believe in the great value and worth that you bring to people and we want to join you on the journey.
