About Us

We've been there too…

Hi, I'm Trudy Rankin

When I first started my own business, no one I knew understood what I was trying to do. And it felt really lonely, sometimes.

And after I began teaching people how to start their own business, I realised it was exactly the same for them.

So I started the Online Business Lift-Off Community. So they could be with people who were further along the online business journey and learn from their wisdom, their mistakes and triumphs.

And my team members all have experience in setting up and running their own businesses.  So they been on the journey, too and know where the pitfalls are.  How to deal with the ups and downs.  And why it's important to celebrate the small wins.


“I wasn’t sure whether my career as an employee for not-for-profit organisations should be my only alternative going forward, especially now that I’m approaching retirement age.

Also, the prospect of using my skills as a visual artist to turn my passion for the arts into part of an income stream was very alluring! But I was worried about my absolute lack of knowledge around online business.

One of the main things I would like to share is that Online Business Lift-off not only provided the technical expertise and assistance that I needed to set up my online business, but more importantly, they made me realise that what I can offer to other people, really matters.”

Listen In As Founder, Trudy Rankin, Explains The “Why” Behind The OBL Community … And How It Can Help You Grow Your Business

If you're like most online business owners, most of the people in your life will only have a vague idea what you do every day. And when you do try to explain, they look at you like you're talking a foreign language. It can feel really lonely.

But you're building your online business for a reason. Because you need to help support your family. Because it's something just for you. But especially because you're helping others in a way that only you can do.

And you'd love to have a place where you can feel like you belong. A place where you can ask questions about all the tough stuff … like mindset and websites and sales funnels and getting leads and customers.

Because sometimes, it's the little things that make you lose momentum and you just need someone who has been there before to point you in the right direction.

Our Online Business LIft-Off (or OBL for short) Community is made up of people like you. People who want to hang out with other people who “get” what they do. Who support each other. Who share the wins and the fails and help each other get up again when it all feels too hard. People who come from all walks of life, with their own stories and unique abilities.

“Online Business Lift-off is the most incredible opportunity to develop and grow my business.  OBL has shone a light on a dream that seemed unattainable alone.  Thank you Trudy for your vision and your awesome team for making the impossible, possible!”
