Welcome to Thrive Collective

Thrive is a community for women who run their own businesses. We support each other to connect, collaborate, learn and thrive together in business.

We are women who are energised by other women’s successes and equally motivated by our own. Women who are ready to take their businesses to the next level!

Thrive was founded in 2018 by multiple business owner Sam Dixon who quickly realised the importance of having supportive, well connected and inspirational women around her in business.

“Running your business can be tough. I know how truly exciting and empowering running your own business. 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.

Thrive is your ‘one stop shop‘ to help you thrive in business. From inspirational virtual and in-person networking and member events, monthly goal setting workshops and our Members hub with recorded training, worksheets and resources and a supportive members community.

Thrive is a UK wide community. We’ve got both in-person and online events so it’s perfect for ambitious women in business who need flexibility

Connect | Collaborate | Learn | Thrive


We love a good Meet Up and growing our connections. It’s not what you know but who you know. We do this both virtually and in person (when we can). 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 members- networking events. Not yet a member? Don’t worry. Come and join us in-person and virtually twice before deciding if Thrive is right for you.

Our Meet Ups take place online an in various locations across Hertfordshire, Essex and London.  With plans to launch more into 2021.


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 online events and ways of getting to know each other better, means we get to know who’s in the group.   Our Members Only Directory gives you a great insight into who does what and who can help you in your biz. Monthly Watercooler & Wisdom events help us know each other better. No cliques allowed!


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!


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

Meet Sam

I’m a huge fan of supporting female led businesses. I’ve launched and run 4 of my own businesses over the past 7 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!
