About Us


Your success rocks my world.

I’ve been a small business mentor for over 30 years, and owned my own retail & service businesses, so I know what it’s like at the coalface!

Together with my partner I’ve applied our experience, knowledge and skills in designing fun & friendly, step-by-step, online learning.

I’m practical and organised, and I love problem-solving with a dash of creativity. And I understand how in your busy world, it’s not easy to fit in learning and change.

I can help. Just reach out to me anytime to chat about your needs, with no obligation.

Online Learning with Judy Celmins from ThriveableBiz


I’ve always been in the innovation business. Producing fresh material to entertain fickle radio audiences was my career for many years. One flick of a switch and they could be gone. Sales revenue depended on ratings and ratings depended on me. It was tough. But now I use what I learned to help other businesses, like you, deliver what’s next.

“Anyone can innovate. With an open-mind to new possibilities, and an open-heart to bring people with you.”- Eriks Celmins
