Since launching in March 2020, at the start of the COVID-19 lockdown, The Rebellious Business Network has gone from success to success. The company pivoted in February 2020 to private coaching aimed at businesses and executives. However, with the introduction of the UK’s first lockdown, the online network soon took off.
By April of this year, Rebellious Business saw their one-to-one sessions with clients fully booked.
Their first coaching group in July, the ‘Rebellious 10k Bootcamp’, reached £22K alone, followed by the success of the Mastermind programme ‘The Six Figure Rebels’, which hit £40k this year. Bringing them to a six-figure revenue in their first year, The Rebellious Business Network puts good business advice into practice to show businesses can be successful despite the coronavirus pandemic.
At present, over 470 businesses make up the online network, creating a new and exciting place for company owners to connect and exchange ideas. Plus, with the Rebelliously Recession-Proof Conference just around the corner, this number is sure to grow.
Speaking about this achievement, Founder of The Rebellious Business Network, Cordelia Kate, stated: “We’re beyond thrilled to see our business reach 100K ahead of the conference launch this winter. No one could have anticipated the upheaval and uncertainty we’ve faced this year, as the coronavirus pandemic has impacted every part of our lives. And yet, through The Rebellious Business Network, we’ve seen businesses innovate and succeed despite the pandemic.”
“Right now, we need rebellious entrepreneurs. Recessions are tricky at the best of times, but in lockdown it can feel even harder to succeed. In the first lockdown alone, it’s estimated that 76,000 small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) were forced to close in London permanently. When you extend these statistics across the country, it's heart breaking to see so many SME's struggling to succeed.”
“However, it is possible to stand out in a crowded digital market place; it is possible to pivot your business to meet the current demands and needs of your customers. All you need is the right mindset, control of your budget, and a flexible business model. It’s this spirit of possibility we look to pass on at our events, and we can’t wait to meet everyone at the upcoming conference this November.”
Cordelia Kate left her job as an emergency nurse in 2018 to build a successful affiliate marketing company from home. All the while, she juggled raising her children with pursuing her passion for business, proving that it’s possible to have the best of both worlds. Through the Rebelliously Recession-Proof Conference and Rebellious Business Network, she brings her years of experience in working from home to entrepreneurs across the nation.
The Rebelliously Recession-Proof Conference brings together this network, with expert speakers and professional coaches to help businesses thrive in the current economic climate. Attendees will discover how to create bullet-proof demand regardless of the season, attracting a steady flow of clients.
Speakers at the conference include:
Celebrity fashion stylist and entrepreneur, Casey Paul
Intuitive Success Coach and business-owner, Frank Sieben
Founder of the Digital Speaking Academy, Christine Frey
Creator of four multi-million dollar businesses, Justin Woolf
Six figure business owner and founder of The Rebellious Business Network, Cordelia Kate
Yoga teacher and business coach, Alex Franklin
Bringing much-needed energy and advice to the UK business market, these experts will help attendees ramp up their inner rebel and get their message heard across a wider audience. Rebellious Business designed this event for those anxious about the current situation. If you're struggling with imposter syndrome or grappling with strategising for the future, then their expert coaching can help.
Cordelia Kate spoke about the conference, stating: “A central message at The Rebelliously Recession-Proof Conference is adaptability. Pivot or perish is the phrase we use. With the audience for many businesses shifting to online-based sales, and new rules coming into force regularly for in-person transactions, the ability to change is crucial for entrepreneurs everywhere.
To do this, you need things like an awareness of the marketplace, and an inner rebel to guide you on your way. Be bold, and be daring, but be prepared to switch things up. We’ve proven it’s possible to thrive in the current economy, and we want to help other rebels out there to do the same.”
Offering six sessions run by business experts, this jam-packed day will help businesses pivot towards positive change. The conference takes place on the 25th of November, costing £37 (+ VAT) per ticket. Offering the chance for individuals to learn from a £100K business, it’s an event that’s not to be missed.

Cordelia Kate Biography
Cordelia Kate is founder of Rebellious Business. Her extensive experience in business, entrepreneurial flair and human understanding is the foundation on which the Rebellious Business Network was born, and that: “social distancing DOES NOT mean social disconnection”.
Rebellious means being wildly authentic: the wildest, most extreme VERSION of you. Rebellious Business’ ethos therefore is believing that you are the USP of your business and you are building the whole business on the basis of “community over competition”; people can take your ideas but they can’t take YOU. Being a Rebellious Entrepreneur is going against the grain, it’s being the wildest most extreme version of you, it’s levelling up and starting to really take your business into a new realm by using world class marketing techniques that magnetise your dream clients into your space.
Rebellious Business is a radical new international business concept bringing together networking, bootcamps, community learning, coaching, collaboration, events and 1:1 relationships on and offline.
She has created a network of over 400 organisations which allows members to support and learn from each other, Cordelia’s aim is to build a global vibrant community of like-minded business owners.
Previously, Cordelia who had always dreamt of using her empathy and compassion to help people, saw her leave waitressing and become a healthcare assistant on the Bone Infection Unit. Subsequent to this, she completed her Nursing Diploma and worked as a registered nurse on the Surgical Emergency Unit – this was quite the feat, as Cordelia left school at the age of 13, and without any formal education, she had to carry out her Diploma via an access course.
While Cordelia loved nursing, the passion she has for business and connection meant launching Rebellious Business at the start of lockdown. She now works fulltime on the business.
Rebellious Business allows her to still help people while improving their lives.
In addition to founding Rebellious Business, she has been running successful online webinars for 2½ years in her capacity as an online business coach. Cordelia is also an ambassador for Mentors.com, which is an online business education company with around 4,000 members. This saw her giving more back to the business community by teaching online lessons in business strategy to budding entrepreneurs.
Her work with Mentors.com and her commitment to helping people succeed in business then saw Cordelia be asked to join the Mentors.com board. This allowed her role to develop further and she now supports its members on business strategy and systems. To further advance her career in this area, Cordelia completed her Mastercoach course and became an accredited Master of Coaching.
Ever the entrepreneur, Cordelia also ran Toyride. A company that sold toy cars online and gave her a great grounding in the nuances of e-commerce.
Cordelia worked as a full-time waitress in the prestigious Loch Fyne Seafood & Grill restaurant. Her talents were soon recognised and she became an ambassador for the company. Her success in this ambassadorial role then led her to become an in-store trainer for Loch Fyne at the tender age of just 17. This allowed Cordelia to not only hone her managerial skills but also gain valuable experience of working at a high level for a top brand.
By the age of 18, Cordelia's success at Loch Fyne then saw her asked to work at top chef Jamie Oliver's new flagship restaurant. This enabled her to become a key part of the opening team and gave her the opportunity to receive training from Jamie Oliver directly and also highly respected Italian chef Gennaro Contaldo.
In her personal life, Cordelia has three children and enjoys travelling, attending live events, listening to chilled house music, sampling world foods and watching crime thrillers.
