equipping you with everything you need to build a profitable, sustainable business.
“Ladies, if you're in business, you need to join the IGC. It's that simple. My New Year's Resolution this year was to finally get my finances in check and to grow my business. And I'm actually doing both because the IGC keeps me accountable, motivated and on the right track. Julia is phenomenal at breaking down big, scary stuff into yummy bite sized pieces. The members' site is easy to use, super pretty, packed with good stuff and updated regularly. And don't even get me started about the FB community! I'm so grateful I found Julia when I did and you will be too. Jump on board now!”

so, who's behind the independent girls collective?
hello! i’m julia.
I founded The Independent Girls Collective in 2017 as a way to share the knowledge I’d gained from my job as an accountant and business project manager with creative entrepreneurs, to make the scary parts of running a business easy - because let’s face it, you want to focus on your passion, not chasing invoices or filing your tax return!
That’s why I created the IGC - a platform that’s accessible, makes things easy to understand and inspires women like you to build the business of their dreams without feeling lonely, worrying about money or battling self-doubt.
“I'd known for a while that I needed to raise my prices, but the idea of telling my ongoing clients terrified me. Working through the Raising Your Prices course helped me massively with my mindset and gave me the confidence to make a change to my pricing. As soon as I'd finished the course I used the email template provided and sent out emails to all of my clients to let them know I'd be increasing my prices.
All of my clients were so respectful and supportive about my price changes, and if I hadn't taken this course then I'd still probably be charging that lower price now!”
“Joining the IGC has been such a positive move for me. Not only are the courses and materials Julia provides incredibly helpful both in boosting confidence and learning new ways to improve and streamline your business, but the community element is so useful. I find the prompts Julia offers at the start of each week so helpful in figuring out my goals and the conversation between community members in the Facebook group comments is so reassuring. Having a group of people who understand what it's like to be dealing with all of the ups and downs of being a small business owner is invaluable.”
“IGC is the PLACE TO BE! I love Julia's practical (with exactly the right amount of woo) approach to teaching. The Facebook group is a friendly and supportive place, and the workshops are brill. Thanks for creating such a great community Julia!”
“You are offering what so many small business need - demystifying the money side of business and empowering us to show up as the best we can in our business. I've guzzled up so much fo the content and resources you've put out and can't believe how straightforward you can make otherwise actually impossible tasks.”
“EVERY small business owner should be a member of the IGC, no questions asked. It's really helped me gain a lot of confidence in starting a business, as all of the information available is super easy to understand and not overwhelming at all! Julia is bloody FABULOUS at what she does, and the community is full of so much support - I can't recommend joining enough!”
