We Are Thrive Collective

A massive thank you to everyone who has thrived with me over the past 3 years.  Thrive Collective has now closed.  But Sam Dixon is still thriving!  

Running your business can be tough. I know how truly exciting and empowering running your own business can be. But I know it can be lonely, overwhelming and frustrating. When it’s great you want to celebrate but it’s not quite as much fun when you’re high-fiving yourself is it? This is the exact reason I set up Thrive Collective. To create a community of like-minded women who get it.

Sam, founder of the Thrive Collective Club.

Connect \ Collaborate \ Learn \ Thrive


We love a good Meet Up to grow our connections. It’s not what you know but who you know. We do this both  in person and online. We know that building relationships comes from being comfortable and so we’re not about stuffy networking sessions, forced referrals or ‘lock outs’. We believe in community over competition and so every woman is welcome at our monthly member events. And if you’re not yet a member, come and visit us once before deciding if Thrive is right for you.  

Our Meet Ups take place online an in various locations across Hertfordshire, Essex and London. 


What impact would it make to have a team of like-minded women alongside you in biz?  Women you could regularly talk to, thrash out ideas, ask for help or hold you accountable? We believe we’re stronger together and so collaborating is a key pillar of Thrive. Our regular in-person and online events are ways of getting to know each other better, which means we get to know who’s in the group.   Our Members Directory gives you a great insight into who does what and who can help you in your biz. And it’s our thriving Members Facebook group where the conversations start and continue.  


And what about the ever-changing business world?  It feels like a full time job keeping on top of trends, techniques and tips to grow your business. Thrive Collective has a Members Hub with over 30 hours of recorded training from various  guest experts to access at any time. All included!

At each event, whether that’s online or in-person there is always a guest speaker who shares valuable training and insight in key areas of business.  Online sessions are recorded and available in the Members Hub.


Come and immerse yourself in the exclusive Members Only Facebook Community. Packed full of inspiration, conversations, a place if you need a pick me up or the opposite – a bum kick to get you moving on something you’re avoiding.  We know the positive impact of surrounding yourself with like-minded people.  This happens here 24/7


Hi, I’m Sam

I’m a huge fan of supporting female-led businesses. I’ve launched and run 4 of my own businesses over the past 9 years and I totally get the trials and tribulations of launching and scaling your own business.

I know from experience how helpful, how powerful and how invaluable it is to have inspiring, honest and action taking women around you. Which is why I set up Thrive Collective alongside my Marketing Consultancy, Thrive With Sam Dixon.

Thrive is a flexible, fun and supportive place to connect, collaborate, learn and thrive.

So whether you’re just starting out, or established in business, Thrive Collective is the place to help you take action and be inspired.

I look forward to seeing you in there!



Tell Me More About Thrive

If you’re ready to grow your business and find your tribe, come and visit a Thrive event as a guest. Whether it’s online or at one of our in-person events, we’d love to see you and support you on your business journey!

We're A UK Wide Group

Whilst we started out meeting in-person in Hertfordshire, we also meet online once a month which is great way to expand our connections and network. Our in-person events are currently held in Bishop’s Stortford, Chelmsford and London and we’re keen to expand into further UK towns and cities. Fancy joining Team Thrive and hosting your own Meet Up? Let’s talk.

Every Woman Welcome

We welcome all female entrepreneurs, freelancers and small business owners. We strongly believe in community over competition and actively promote collaborations. This is why there are no ‘lockouts’. So whether you’ve just set up your business or been trading for a number of years, Thrive will be there to support and cheerlead you and your business on.

Networking & Support

The two aren’t mutually exclusive. Whilst we’re networking and growing our business, Thrive has been created to enrich your personal and professional development. Each event includes an element of training and sharing from industry experts within Thrive and within the Members Hub you’ll find over 30 hours of recorded training in key business areas.
