Dramatic sounding, isn’t it?
It’s true though. A year ago at this time, I had a business consulting practice that was very much reactive. I was (still am!) working full time, and doing some business with old customers in my spare time. I kept thinking I should ramp the business back up, it was 2012, and I needed to start thinking about how I was going to EAT if I ever found a way to retire. I’m not very good at plumping up my 401Ks! Besides, I love the work I do.
So I started branching out. I started playing around with in-person workshops (fun!) and marketing that business.
Along came Marie Forleo.
I originally took B-School thinking I was going to market the workshops I was doing. I quickly fell in LOVE with online marketing, no one had ever explained it in such down to earth, easy to understand terms as Marie did. Still thinking I was marketing in-person workshops, I started ROCKING my business with the materials I was learning in B-School.
Even more valuable than the materials was the community. Overnight, I had a 2000 person support team. For a solo-preneur, that was a dream come true.
You know those days when you have a great idea for your business, but don’t know who to run it by for a test drive? Now, even at 2AM I could post a question on the B-School Facebook page and get 5 answers in 5 minutes. “Do you like THIS title for a program or THIS title? ” “I need some help with structuring pricing for this idea of mine”. I had a place to run to with my successes, people who understood how amazing it was when my list went from 100 to 200 people in one day. To most people, 200 isn’t much. My B-School friends knew just how important and challenging list building could be, and joined my virtual party! Today, my list grows every single solitary day. I have clients worldwide.
Over the year, my old customers, friends and colleagues started reaching out to me for online marketing help. I FREAKING LOVE it so much, I was happy to help. It didn’t take long before my own business went from marketing my workshops to marketing coaching. I love you creative people though, so I’m working really hard to keep my focus on YOU, the Reiki practitioner, the Yoga teacher, the Fitness trainer, the right-brained entrepreneur.
You know me, so you’re now thinking “She’s a geek, she’s been in business forever, what could Marie Forleo teach that she couldn’t have learned somewhere else?” LOTS, let me tell you. Marie helped me take all of my years of business and technology experience, by now all jumbled in my brain, and helped me spit it back out. All of those years of experience are now organized in a way that allows me to WORK in my business, not spend hours and hours trying to figure things out. That translates into dollars and cents.
When Marie offered the chance to be an Affiliate partner for her program, I jumped at it. B-School has paid for itself so many times over in the past year, I couldn’t think of anything I would recommend higher.
It’s given me business focus and skills.
I’m now friends with the most AMAZING people.
It’s directly responsible for a 500% increase in cold hard cash coming into my business.
Registering for B-School is hands down the best business decision I ever made. Today, I have a part time business bringing in serious cash. I can work anywhere in the world I want. My retirement date is getting earlier and earlier. Marie Forleo is helping MY dreams come true!

Wow!! What a difference this made in your business, Karen! I loved how much fun B-School was in addition to all the excellent info and support you receive. Such a great program. Marie is moving on to so many big things that if you are considering B-School, do it NOW because it won’t be around for much longer.
So true Christina. Who knew school could be so much FUN?
B-School was, hands down, the best investment I ever made for myself and my business! Not only did I learn a TON of great information to help grow my business, get my website up, and create marketing that works, I was also connected to an amazing community of support that I never expected.
The other awesome part about B-School is that you have access to it for life. I have gone back time and time again when I am preparing a new service or offering. The information, worksheets, videos, bonuses are all amazing resources for any business owner.
Laura, YOU are one of the amazing connections I thank B-School for!
It seems like it is geared specifically towards women. Is the focus and content such that participants would benefit regardless of gender?
You know what Jayson, it is, but there are definitely a few men in the program. Notably, Mastin Kipp. Frankly, the men get a lot of additional attention! Certainly the business lessons are not gender specific.
Hi Jayson, if you are interested at all, DO IT! It’s life changing and the support from the B-School group is amazing. Yes, it is mostly women but there are men as well and we LOVE having them in the group. There isn’t one negative about the program, it’s the best thing I have ever done for me.
I love reading about B school success stories. I did B school when I was starting my business as a digestive health coach and it was so helpful to get started on the right track. Excited for this next round to refine what I learned.
Me too Angela! The gift that keeps on giving.
Congrats, Karen. What a transformation! I agree, the B-School community is worth its weight in gold. The support, the connections, the bright ideas–all game changers.
You were a huge help Adrianne! I’m looking forward to doing more soon.
What a testimonial Karen! I love this:
Marie helped me take all of my years of business and technology experience, by now all jumbled in my brain, and helped me spit it back out.
Right? New information isn’t the key – it’s the way it’s presented in such a digestible format!
It’s so very true. (I love your video!)
It rings very true but with all the work I have done so far I am border line if I need this or not just too lazy to do what I know already. I am working at my business now and This could be one more big distraction I can not afford.
