Need affordable help with the legals, HR, tax and accounting AND a drama-free business community to support you in growing your business?

The Savvy Shay Business Club is my affordable monthly membership that provides you with:

There are many other memberships out there for small business owners - but none of them provide the level of expertise that we offer, particularly on the legal side.

And as we know, legal support is expensive. Legal problems are even more expensive...

In fact, according to the Legal Services Board, legal problems cost small businesses, on average, a whopping £6,700 per year!

Yes, you will have Richard Branson's lawyer on hand for all of your legal questions for an incredibly low monthly fee and access to award winning legal templates.

Here are the huge benefits of the Savvy Shay membership:

Get easy answers to complex questions with weekly surgeries 
As a member, you’ll gain access to our weekly Zoom surgeries, where I and my carefully selcted team of experts will answer all your legal, tax, accountancy and HR questions … meaning that rather than relying on the Internet for help with these complex areas (which is incredibly risky), you can get accurate, trustworthy guidance week after week from trusted specailists.
Be guided through all the vital legal protections you need 
As part of the membership, we guide you through the Roadmap (see the image below) of all the vital legal protections you need to have in place in your business, so that you have the confidence that everything is all in place and peace of mind that your business is not at risk.
Stay up to date easily with monthly trainings and Q&As
Every month, you'll be invited to one legal training session and one business training session … so you’re always learning something new and important about the law and about business that’ll help you protect your livelihood while remaining in compliance with the newest legal regulations AND increase your business savviness.
Save thousands on legal fees getting the important things in place 
Not only do we guide you through the Roadmap to ensure all vital legal protections are in place, once a quarter, through our Implementation Sprints, we focus in on a vital area of legal protection or growth and we ensure that key documents and protections are put in place in your business, such as our Trademark Sprint where we guide you to apply for a trademark, our Copyright Sprint where we guide you to put in place content protection and our Negotiation Sprint where we guide you through negotiation strategies.  
Free access to our back catalogue of 100s of legal trainings
Whatever you need to know about - whether it's how to best deal with suppliers, what legal issues to consider when recruiting, how to bring a debt action in the small claims court, we have everything covered for simple, easy guidance showing you the way forwards and directing you to the relevant templates and other resources.
Get past your biggest business challenges with our regular masterminds
Once a quarter, we will invite you to apply for a Hot Seat as part of our virtual mastermind day. You bring your biggest business challenge to the session - whether that be nailing your niche, developing a new offering, finding clients, scaling, hiring the right team members, getting investment - whatever it is, we will bring our collective experience (and I will bring my 12 years of building a 7 figure business) to brainstorm solutions for you to move past that challenge with ease. 
Accountability to focus on the important through our special software
Using our special software, you can easily link up with other members to carve out time to put not only legal protections in place, but also other 'important but not urgent' things, that very often get left until it is too late. 
Be supported and cheered on by our vibrant and welcoming community
Once you join the Savvy Shay Business Club, you’ll gain access to our private Facebook group, where you’ll be able to join our welcoming community of small business owners just like you - to network, win clients, find help, get recommendations, share experiences and more.
Network to collaborate, win clients, find suppliers and get support
Once a month, we come together on zoom and introduce our businesses and share our biggest wins. This is a really great way to get to know each other, spot collaboriations and deepen the relationships, so that members are willing to go that extra mile for you. Wine and crisps optional...

With all these amazing resources, the Savvy Shay Business Club arms you with the knowledge you need to make smart, money-saving decisions for your business … at a fraction of what it would cost you to hire a solicitor, an accountant, a tax advisor, a HR advisor and a business advisor!

Even better, you’re getting that guidance quickly and easily from an experienced business lawyer … without having to waste your time and energy trying to decipher complicated (dull!) jargon. 

However, don’t just take my word for how great the support is … check out what our members have to say about it ...

I am a huge advocate of community and collaboration

Hi, I’m Suzanne Dibble, a business lawyer and 7 figure business owner who specialises in helping small business owners with their legal and business issues.

Prior to doing that, I worked with legendary entrepreneurs like Richard Branson, and at the world’s largest law firm, DLA Piper, working on multi-million pound global mergers and acquisitions.

I’ve also been a board director of a £150m+ business, which led to me being listed in the Who’s Who of Britain’s Business Elite two years in a row.

In 2010, I set up my own legal practice and then passive income business, and as a result, I’m totally commercial-minded and entrepreneurial in my outlook (which is a bit of a rarity for us solicitors).

In 2014, I set up my first mastermind group for business owners and in 2016 partnered with Dr Joanna Martin to bring our exclusive Empress mastermind to female entrepreneurs.

However ...

What really sets me apart from other lawyers and business owners is my passion for educating and empowering female business owners ...

That’s important to me, because I watched my mum struggle--at the age of 50--after she was left with no financial security.

As you might imagine, that experience had a profound impact … and ultimately, set me on my current course.

Today, I help women (and some very special men...) by:

Establishing a solid foundation for their business
Putting legal protections in place to prevent anything from threatening their livelihood
Sharing business strategies and insights that helped me grow my online business from scratch to 7 figures, with the majority of that being passive income
My ultimate goal is to help female small business owners achieve financial independence … so they can rest easy, knowing their business and financial future is 100% secure.

In the course of that work, I created the Small Business Legal Academy, which was heralded by the SRA and the Legal Services Board as 'pioneering’. It also won a Law Society Award and when surveyed, a whopping 100% of Small Business Legal Academy members said they’d recommend it.

Between the Small Business Legal Academy and the clients I’ve assisted in my private practice, I’ve literally helped tens of thousands of small business owners … which is why I’m well-familiar with the legal issues you face.

That’s why I’m so excited to tell you about the Savvy Shay Business Club ...

The Savvy Shay Business Club Empowers You With the Expert Guidance You Need … To Handle Any Issue Your Business Is Facing - Calmly and With Confidence

What is the Roadmap?
As part of the membership, we guide you through the above Roadmap to ensure that all vital legal protections are put in place properly in your business, so that you are fully protected. 

You submit the relevant completed documents (by having personalised my templates) and answer a quiz that tests core legal knowledge. So passionate are we to encourage small business owners to be proactive about legal protection that if you 'pass' the Roadmap, your membership fee is reduced down to just £27pm.

You can submit your Roadmap as many time as you need and there is no time limitation on when you can submit it. We hold special Roadmap surgeries to help guide members through the Roadmap and putting these vital legal protections in place.

If you are at the point in your business where some of the protections aren't yet relevant eg you have not yet taken on employees, this will not prevent you from passing your Roadmap. 
Did you know that "Shay" means 'ambitious' in Gaelic? If you have ambitions to grow your business without it being derailed, then this is the membership for you
Running a small business is challenging...

In fact it's one of the most challenging things we are every likely to set out hand to.

We have to know so much about everything.

We have to do everything ourselves.

Until we decide to hire people, when it's so hard to work out who we actually need and where  to find the right people.

Second guessing ourselves is a constant. Have I made the right decision? What should I do next? Could I have dealt with that better?

Not knowing which way to turn is exhausting...

Often, it's a very lonely place to be as our friends and family and local acquiantances just don't understand the demands on us. 

The simple fact is this: to grow our businesses with ease, we need other people to help us.

We need trusted experts who we can go to with a complex problem and get an easy answer.

We need people who have already grown their businesses past the point where ours is so that 
we can learn from their experiences and not make the mistakes they made.

We need a community of small business owners who can be our sounding board and cheer us on.

We need recommendations - what books to read, what courses to do, what software to use, who to hire (and who to avoid...)

And we need people who understand us when we just need to vent about how hard something has been or to celebrate those wins that none of your friends or family really understand...

No man or woman is an island, particularly in business - we need that support and community to thrive.  

And with that support comes ease, joy and the satisfaction of seeing all of our efforts paying off...

Want confidence and peace of mind AND a supportive community to cheer you on and share experiences, then this membership is for you

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I join and find the Savvy Shay Business Club isn’t right for business?
If, after joining, you decide that the membership isn’t right for your type of business, just let me know within 30 days of your purchase, and if we agree that it isn't right for your type of business,  we'll refund 100% of your investment. 
Do I need to attend all of the surgeries?
Absolutely not. Attend as many or as few of the surgeries as you need to feel confident that your business is legally protected and that you have the answers to any pressing questions. Even if you don't have your own question to ask, it's enormously valuable to listen to other similar business owners' questions and learn from that. 
I don’t use Facebook, will I still be getting value from the membership?
Of course! The weekly surgeries take place on Zoom. That’s where you will have access to me and my team of carefully selected legal experts. The Monthly Trainings, Q&A’s, Implementation Sprints, Roadmap Surgeries and Monthly Socials all take place on Zoom and the recordings are available inside the membership site. You will also benefit from all of the back catalogue of 100s of trainings (in the membership site) and the 5 day implementation sprints.
I’m a current standard member of SBLA, how is Savvy Shay Business Club different?
If you’re a current member, you have had access to our templates, video guides, checklists and other materials but no access to Suzanne and her expertise or any of the other benefits listed above. This is the perfect add on for those of you have access to the materials in the Legal Academy.
What about current Elite members, how is this different?
At present you have access to Suzanne in the VIP Facebook group. For current Elite members, this will continue for so long as you pay your renewal fee which is fixed at £197 plus VAT a year. We no longer sell Elite membership. 
Does the membership include access to the legal templates and other materials in the Legal Academy?
No, the membership does not include the legal templates or other materials - these can be purchased separately at a discount of half price on the usual prices whilst you are a member. 
When do I get access to the membership?
Once you complete your purchase, you’ll get immediate access to our membership portal and Facebook group! You’ll also receive details via email about how you can access the upcoming weekly Zoom surgeries, as well as the monthly trainings.
How long do I have access to everything?
You have access to all of the benefits for as long as you are a paying member of the Savvy Shay Business Club.
Am I tied in for any period?
You can pay monthly to spread the cost of the membership. The minimum term is as stated on the checkout form. The reason we can offer this membership at such a low cost is because it is expected that not every member will have a legal issue to bring every week. Think of the investment as like insurance but much better value and a lot more fun!
Does Suzanne guarantee to answer questions in the Facebook group? 
Suzanne or one of her carefully selected team of experts will answer all your questions in the weekly surgeries and on the trainings. In the Facebook group, you have a community support where you can share experiences of what has worked and what hasn’t worked for you and learn from the group experience. 
What types of businesses is this membership for?
If you have a service based business selling online this is perfect for you. A coach, a consultant, a membership site owner, an online course creator, a speaker, a trainer, a designer, a creative, a VA, a book keeper, a therapist, a fitness professional, any kind of expert - then this membership is perfect for you. Saying that, if you sell products online, this will also be very helpful for you.
Can I share the membership with my business partner?
Yes! If the membership has been purchased by your business then either you or your business partner (or both of you) can attend the surgeries, the training sessions, the implementation sprints and access the membership site. 
Is this membership suitable for people outside of the UK?
If you are in Scotland, then our business laws are practically identical so this is absolutely suitable for you. If you’re outside of the UK but have a UK client base, this will also be very useful for you.
Is Suzanne acting as my lawyer as part of the membership?
No, Suzanne is not acting as your lawyer. Suzanne rarely provides one to one legal consultancy these days and if she does it will be through the regulated entity Vlaw Limited.
Can I ask questions on behalf of my clients?
No, you can only ask questions and obtain support for your business. But by all means tell all your clients about the membership and encourage them to join! You may even want to join as an affiliate to earn a reward when your clients sign up through your unique link. Just email to express your interest in being an affiliate.
Can I share the details of the membership with my business pals?
Absolutely! We have an affiliate scheme that you can sign up to - just email and my affiliate manager will help you out.
Have another question that we haven't covered above?
You can click on the video to the bottom right of the screen and ask a question via video or email or you can email our support desk at

“Highly recommend! When I started I wanted to get my client contracts and website documents in place and protect my IP. I have done that and so much more - I have a level of understanding that has far exceeded my hopes. Suzanne takes something complex and daunting and makes it simple and easy to understand. There's as much learning in the Q&A as there is in the content. I now understand the purpose of the clauses and what they mean in context and have the confidence to negotiate them as well. I feel set up for success in multiple areas of my business - dealing with vendors, taking on associates, offering online programs, negotiating B2B contracts.  It's an absolute goldmine of resources and support which you'll be glad to have to avoid any expensive legal headaches."
Lindsay Cressey
“Suzanne has played a key part at the start of my entrepreneurial journey; it's rare to find a lawyer who also runs an entrepreneurial business and so who has depth of legal experience plus insight into the everyday joys and agonies of running a business. I have gained access not only to an extensive and comprehensive legal template library covering all aspects of small businesses, but also Suzanne's fun and straightforward teachings which give great depth of understanding and how to implement these documents. I was looking to have all the necessary legal documents in place before I started trading; now I'm ready to start trading, confident that I have myself and my business in the best legal shape going forward. Suzanne makes the legal side of your business accessible, understandable and even fun!" 
"Suzanne’s legal knowledge and templates has actually, I believe, saved my business."

"Suzanne has excelled herself with a comprehensive and easy to follow programme that is equally as relevant to start ups as it is to established businesses."
Sam Willoughby

Anna Louise Cowgill
This programme is a must for anyone with a small business. Suzanne teaches you everything you need to make sure you have the right legal protections in place to protect it. Not only that she walks you through how to implement them step by step and answers all of your questions. It is great motivation and will give you confidence in negotiations and peace of mind that you are properly protected. You will have peace of mind that your business is properly protected and you will have greater confidence to negotiate your future contracts."

“I had a Copyright issue where a competitor was using my material on their Facebook page. It looked likely that they would also publish my material. As a member of Suzanne’s membership, it was so easy to know what to do. I adapted a template letter and sent it off and within 48 hours the material was removed from the offending Facebook page. 

I have also used the template Cease and Desist Letter to successfully deter two businesses from using my business name.”
Karen Hooton
“Sometimes wish I have more time to spend on the legal area of the business, there is soooo much content, Suzanne has made it fascinating and so easy to follow, the extra days of walking through the templates has been well worth the time and money, increasing my knowledge and confidence for understanding and using the templates in my business. The templates make everything look and feel so more professional when applied in the business and are above many other competitors. It's the reassurance that you are doing things the correct way to protect both you and the business. And I now know what to look for in other Ts & Cs, etc from other businesses - priceless, thank you to Suzanne and the team."
Amie Crews
“It's not just a set of templates, the guidance that Suzanne gives in explaining the legal terminology has enabled me to feel confident about what I have in place and I finally feel properly protected. I went from various cobbled together documents and keeping my fingers crossed, to a fully comprehensive and legally protected business. Having access to the templates is one thing but having Suzanne walk it through and explain what it means in layman's terms means that I now fully understand, and trust the documents I have in place. I have completely overhauled all the documents I had in place across my website, members platform and with regards to IP."
“I find the Facebook group an invaluable support and enjoy being able to interact with Suzanne and other members in such an instant way. As most of us work on-line all day against tight deadlines, getting such quick responses is a real plus point. It is also very useful to see other businesses legal queries and the resulting guidance as often it can apply to my business too or arms me with the knowledge should there be a time in the future I find myself in a similar situation.

I love the sense of business community the Facebook group gives me, knowing there are other small business owners out there with similar queries or dilemmas to myself. Lastly but not least, having direct access to Suzanne’s immense knowledge and her straight forward way of explaining the legal world has added real value to my business and given me the confidence to implement policies and tackle long overdue projects."

“Comprehensive, thorough and practical way to not only learn about the key legal requirements and implications, but combined with simple ways to implement them."
Anne Welsh
“I would recommend Suzanne Dibble to anyone. Lots of people will sell you legal documents or courses on how to prepare them. Suzanne does that but she and her team also get you thinking about how to operate your own business in a way that works for you, your clients and, of course, the law. It's the best way to not only know what you are doing legally, but why you are doing it."
Dr Alison Grimston
“We don't know what we don't know until we have some training like this - and every day we are putting our businesses at risk by not getting these legal documents in place!"
"What Suzanne helps with is way beyond going out there and finding some die-cut templates. Frankly, it's like chalk and cheese in terms of the support you get and the quality of the templates."
Paul Jenkins

 "What Suzanne offers is always amazing value for money – it’s a no-brainer. The fact that Suzanne has such an excellent reputation means that I know that the programme is ‘major’ outstanding value. I recommend everything she does to all of my business contacts."

"I genuinely cannot tell you how much stress Suzanne has relieved from me. As small business owners, we want to get it right. Suzanne takes away the headache, the worry, the uncertainty out of it, in what I can only describe as a beautifully simple process."

“What a fabulous experience. Suzanne patiently guides you to not only prepare the right legal documents for your business and its activities, but also ensures that you understand what each means and why you need it. 
Carolyn Boddington
“ It’s a very supportive community. And a very intelligent group that asks great questions. It’s a pleasure to learn from the challenges/scenarios others have in diverse businesses to mine. It is hard to put a value on what having access to a professional legal infrastructure and a legal expert to answer my questions is for a business of my size. Suffice to say Suzanne has provided at least 1000x value for my investment and I will be forever grateful. I go forward safe in the knowledge that I am as protected as I can be. It would have been years before I could have afforded the legal infrastructure I have put in place thanks to Suzanne, if I would have ever actually done it. Thank you so much Suzanne."
Kristiina Gwynne
“Fantastic to get all the legal documents in place to grow my business. Suzanne was exceptionally helpful in answering all my questions and her team are really supportive. It feels very reassuring.  As a result I have created my privacy policy, sorted my cookie policy on my website, created my copyright notice, created my terms of business and data processing addendum. I also have my freelancers agreement ready! Thank you!"
Jo Manton
“This gives you the courage and confidence that you're running your business in the right way! Whenever I needed to reach out to the support team, I got a prompt - and helpful - response.  Benefits-wise I got my IP assigned straight-away from my graphic designer, updated my website terms of use, privacy and cookie notice, and reviewed my existing Associate Agreements to make sure they were legally compliant. I also really appreciated virtually meeting other business owners in different stages of business and learning from their challenges!"
