You want a business, but you feel like you need college. Or if you went to college, a refresher on how to do business.
My friend, if you are stepping into the online business world, you don’t need a college degree. And the refresher? That is called Marie Forleo’s B-School. It’s modern training at it’s finest. And if you are reading this right now, you’re in luck for it’s open now!
B-School only opens up once a year, generally around March.
What is B-School?
It is a robust online course that Marie Forleo has founded. It takes you through six weeks of training to help you learn how to build your online business and more. It’s pricey, but I purchased it five years ago, and I go through it every year. Because once you buy it, you get to have it for a lifetime. Each year it is updated to give you the latest version, unlike college that you do one and done.
And if you’re in your 50’s like me, going to college and giving up four years not to mention thousands of dollars doesn’t get you off the couch and moving.
Why Do This Modern Training With B-School?
B-School won’t be just full of fluff. It’s modern training in this day and age using technology to your advantage.
Your dream is to build something that you can run from anywhere, right? At least I assume so since you are reading my blogs. Because by now, you know how strongly I feel about cultivating your way to make money. Even if it’s a side hustle, this course will be valuable.
You don’t have to quit your job and have a million-dollar business. But it’s essential to have a second source of income because you never know what life has in store for you. And if you’re looking for something more in life, I believe business, more importantly, an online business will give you that.
What does B-School offer?
Like I said earlier, there are six modules, and each week a new module is dropped. It will give you a week to do the module and do the work that Marie suggests. There is usually a break midway through for implementation week and office calls.
This module will take you through solidifying your ideal client so that you have a clear vision and strategy. It is vital because if you don’t narrow down who you are serving, you can’t target the right client that needs your expertise.
Building a website can be scary. Although Marie won’t take you through it step by step how to make your website, she will help you create one that converts.
You need a website for your online business and this online modern training, you’ll get the basics you need.
Quick note: Techie VA Training will take you through step by step to build a WordPress Website.
This module will help you connect with the people that you are trying to reach. These people will be the ones that you narrowed down in week one.
If you are studying online business, you have heard about how important it is to build that list. It’s the only thing that you’ll have control over who you market to.
For this module, you learn about growing that list.
You can’t have an online business if you don’t know what you are offering. Even when I purchased B-School, I didn’t know what I wanted to provide. Even if you start with an offer in mind, after going through B-School, you may change your mind and have to pivot.
I’ve pivoted many times. When I purchased it, I wanted to write. And even though that is still something that I’m working on, I have chosen to go a different route and support the online business owner instead.
Marketing With This Modern Training
There are so many people that struggle with this including me. Marie teaches you how to do this in a non-spammy way, yet it’s modern marketing.
You’ll never stop learning how to market, but each year you can learn this over and over again.
When It’s Over, It’s Not Over
At the end of the sixth week, there is graduation, just like in college.
But even after that, there will be bonuses that will drop. And did I mention the lifetime access?
Let’s face it. Online businesses aren’t going away. I still think that it’s the way of the future. Just because you’re in your 50’s doesn’t mean that your time is over. Why not jump on the online business train and ride it to more freedom and more income? And enroll in B-School and take advantage of this modern training from Marie?
Paying can hurt — especially $1999 for a six-week course. But B-School offers a payment plan of $199 for 12 payments, and that may be a little easier for you. But when you think of what you are saving by doing this instead of college, the money you’ll save will be substantial.
And as they say, when you have to pay for something, you’ll be more likely to do the training.
If you are looking for something more in your life, now is the time. Or if B-School is closed for the year, plan ahead to get in when it opens again. It usually is opened every February and starts in March.
Don’t keep dreaming and not taking action. Action is critical to make those dreams go from in your head to a reality. And B-School is the first step to that reality.
