Thank you for your support

Thank you for your support

I founded Shift Momentum out of the need for support to help the growth of small businesses. As a business owner myself, I have seen first hand how tough it can be, with so much to learn, the burden of responsibility and no real support network at the start.

Sometimes it can feel isolating and with so many traps out there for “I am your guru” sales funnels, you can’t even Google how to grow a business these days. Well in early 2018 I decided I had enough of trying to fit into these “traditional” methods and after years of growing the businesses I am involved in with both successes and failures, Shift Momentum & Shifties was born.

We provide exactly what is required by way of tools, infrastructure, production, incubation, access to expertise, events, training programmes and a community to thrive in together, all driven by the members in it. With this environment and when combined with the ambition to achieve, we help business owners accelerate superstar businesses with growth potential beyond reach.

With a growing team and presence, we are building momentum towards a promising future for everyone that engages with our entrepreneurial efforts.

Please continue to participate in the events, challenges and community but also feel free to invite other business owners in your network that have the same growth mindset as you, also check out our Facebook page – Shifties where you might just see yourself feature as we regularly celebrate the engagement within the community.

There are also some useful links below to enable you to share this events page with your social platforms if you do we will be sure to return the favour.




Check out the Get Shift Done Podcast with Alex Hughes, Entrepreneur and Founder of Shift Momentum. It’s never been so easy to connect, learn and grow as Entrepreneurs, now, as we enter an era starting with a global economic reset, it has never been so important. But where there is uncertainty, there is also the opportunity, which makes 2020 & beyond a very interesting journey for small businesses & start-ups. In the first series, we hope to bring some clarity, thought and inspiration to small business owners as we move through it together. 

We're Still Here Mental Health Campaign

The ongoing coronavirus outbreak and the subsequent lockdown has caused widespread chaos, panic and, for many business owners, a level of uncertainty the likes of which they’ve never experienced before. All of these factors combined, plus the self-isolation measures, will have taken their toll on many people’s mental health.

In an attempt to raise awareness and provide mental health support during this particularly testing time, our local CPSL Mind charity is encouraging us to seek help early if we are feeling overwhelmed or distressed.


To support this extremely worthwhile cause, the Shifties Community has launched their own ‘We’re Still Here’ campaign to highlight to the world just how resilient us business owners are in the face of adversity.

The campaign includes a video montage of Shifties members sending a message out to the business world that “yes, things are pretty grim right now, but we are still here!” and for other business owners to “remain strong”. In turn, with the momentum that the video hopefully gains, we’ll raise some decent money for charity, all the while spreading an important message to boost morale among small businesses.
