Don’t take it from us, listen to our grads! Each year, we have the honor of working with a vibrant global community of B-Schoolers and each year, we’re thrilled to collect their inspiring stories and receive their praise. You’ll find (just a few) of our favorites below.
"It’s business school for the 21st century. I learned more practical information about marketing in 8 weeks with B-School than in two years of a college business program."
"Without question or hesitation I would recommend B-School. Because the breadth and depth of this program was far better than the 1 year I spent in business school working on my MBA."
"You absolutely underpromised and overdelivered. The resources and the support tools were amazing. I especially liked that you shared personally the challenges and obstacles you had to overcome so we could get an inside glimpse that we aren't the only vulnerable ones when starting a new business."
"My business is unrecognizable from when I first did B-School. Not only do I have a fierce tribe of women who have my back (I call them the B-School Mafia), I actually have a viable business now, instead of a creative hobby...I frequently recommend B-School as the BEST online training for smart, ambitious and SEXY women."
"B-School is tremendously empowering and informative. No matter where you are in your business—still dreaming, doing it but could use help, or very accomplished and ready for even more, it’s a great answer. Everything is top-notch from the materials to the delivery to the staff to the information presented. Just taking B-School and observing how it’s presented and delivered is a course in and of itself."
"I would recommend B-School for anyone wishing to grow their business while showing up as their best self. The content is excellent. The community is fantastic. And, there is something for anyone who would like to turn their passion into a profit while impacting people's lives in a positive and powerful way."
"I recommend B-School because Marie Forleo is the real deal and her motives are pure. This is not one of those programs where you pay a lot of money and then they just give you access to an unorganized zip file or a single web page that's overloaded with downloads. Marie has created a proper learning system. There is support. There are tools. The example Marie sets through the quality of her product and the care and detail she puts into everything she does, really sets her apart. That's who I want to learn from!"
"I loved everything about it. I have done a lot of training over the years a BSc, BA, MSc, PhD and Chartership. B-School is by far the most fun and interesting program I have ever done. It rocked."
Dr Christy Fergusson
"This is one of the top 5 things I have ever done for myself. This experience has changed my life from the inside out. This is so much more that a business course — it is a new way of going through the world in business and in life. Leading from the heart."
Lynndee Tonkin (LeBeau)
"It's like doing a quick MBA and spiritual retreat all in one without paying $100K."
“This is like no other business education you can receive. I went to Georgetown University and majored in marketing and I feel like I've gained 10 times more value out of B-School! The B-School community ROCKS and it's obvious that Marie cares so deeply. It's just such a ridiculous value and I know it will keep paying off way after it ends. I've started thinking of my business as a business instead of just a side hobby and gotten more serious about putting things into action. I've committed to investing in my business now rather than putting it off and I just feel so much more supported and confident and am so grateful for all of the practical tools we've received.”
“I wish this program had been around when I first started my online business. I've invested in a lot of programs and coaches. This one was by far THE best, most content-rich, clear, easy to implement marketing workshop out there. The information you share is exactly what you need to know to build a successful business. It’s frickin’ intense, but oh so practical and fun and its content can be used over and over and over as you evolve. And what you are teaching is FAR more valuable and practical than what I learned in business school. If you were giving diplomas I would totally replace my MBA one with yours!”
"It is simply the best online marketing program around. I researched online coaches for a while and I am so grateful that I waited for B-School. The most creative, authentic, fun content around. Fun, sassy, alive, real, hip and fabulous women from around the world creating our wonderful life and lifestyle while rockin’ the world with our gifts!"
“I recommend B-School to all my entrepreneur friends. It's such a great, UP-TO-DATE approach to business. Marketing has to change with the times and no one wants to be all salesy anymore. The Internet is vast and overwhelming but B-School helps you break it all down, learn how to connect with people one-on-one, and use the Internet to your advantage. B-School is the biz of the future.”
"I am no longer intimidated by marketing and actually look forward to marketing my biz—unlike before B-School when marketing made me feel like throwing up!"
“The information was presented in modules, which led you step-by step, delivering exactly what you needed to know, instead of a hodgepodge of information that you had to figure out how to implement. What was really terrific compared to some other virtual training programs I've purchased is the level of technical knowledge and direction you get in B-School.”
“I loved it all! What was most important to me though was that it provided the answers to EVERYTHING that I'd been wanting to know about doing business online, and TONS more that I didn't even know to ask about! I'd been trying to piece it together by reading blogs and was just wasting my time. B-School gave me everything I wanted and more, in one spot!”
“How refreshing it is to have an authentic, no bulls*it approach to marketing.”
“Straight-talking, integrity-filled, nuts and bolts, here's how you DO philosophy!”
“I am so grateful to you for raising the bar on excellence in marketing. I am especially grateful that I feel no need to look any further or study with any more marketing gurus. I have enough material here to work with for the next decade.”
Sue Ann Gleason
“B-School bridged the gap between tasks and the bullshit I carry around in my head that tells me I can't do things. There are so many programs out there, trust me I have spent way too much for far too little in the past. What is different is you ooze integrity and you seem truly invested in more than the bottom line."
“It boils down to everything a girl needs to know about building a business. I'd rather pay for my 20-yr-old to do B-School than college.”
“I feel like B-School has been a crash course on the best there is in internet marketing for small businesses, skipping all the dead-end roads and cul-de-sacs. If you want to learn from the best in the industry, Marie's B-School is the one I totally trust and the one I invested in. It's been a fantastic experience and I feel like I'll be studying these modules for the next couple of years! I'm grateful that I took the risk and bought the program. I'm certain I'll be reaping the benefits for the rest of my life.”
“The depth and breadth of info is delivered in such a hip, warm, accessible manner.”
“The format is excellent. It is incredibly well structured and formatted to ensure it is easily understood, remembered, and actionable.”
“I am very clear about what to do for my business and life, both long term and daily and know for sure that I will reach success. It's comprehensive and helps you and your business become more YOU because you’re teaching timeless principles so that it's a balance of plug-and-play and highly individualized. Unbelievable value, super fabulous, so fun, and REAL.”
“There was SO much information, I really appreciate how it was broken down into small manageable pieces. Everything was presented clearly, so it was super easy to follow. I can't believe how much I learned!”
“The easily digestible marketing advice was a godsend and made me take a totally different perspective on my business. I have gained the knowledge to commercialize my passion, now it's just time to get the runs on the board, and that's up to me!”
“It's down-to-earth, VERY professional!! You know how to connect and it's uber-essential stuff we all need if we want to grow in our profession.”
“B-School has been a truly inspiring learning experience. It has given me a huge amount of insight into the world of marketing and building a business as well as great tools and tips to apply to what I do.”
“B-School offers clarity on the overwhelm of being a business owner. Anyone who becomes part of the B-School process will never go back to doing business the same way you did before the program. You will notice a deep shift in your thinking, doing, and attracting that super charges your business—right from day one!"
“B-School helped me learn how to really own it, and that carries a business owner so far. I have greater confidence in my services and marketing plans. I also finally have a cohesive plan to engage my clients and get repeat business, which always felt like kind of a crapshoot before.”
“I got the best juicy tips for running a small online business here in B-School without having to wade through tons of books and research on my own. Even though there are a lot of free marketing things out there, usually given by really long, LONG-winded people giving away a few tips that it takes half an hour to hear and then selling something I'm not willing to pay for in the end. Not here. There is so much in B-School that is useful, concise and clear, straightforward and easy to implement that I think I got a lot of bang for my buck. There is so much here that is brilliant, delivered in a clear and simple way—its a huge time saver—and getting the heads up on not doing the wrong thing first is priceless.”
“I am more ballsy! I take action more consistently and have been really putting myself out there to learn more about what my customers want. I loved the videos. They were easy to understand and to follow and the fact that I can come back to them over and over again is very helpful. I would recommend B-School wholeheartedly to any entrepreneur who is struggling, just starting out, or wants to ramp up her game.”
“Biggest change: I'm taking action. I'm making things happen, I'm implementing what we're learning. I have a confidence I didn't have before. Most importantly, I value what I have to offer so much more. It's so well rounded—getting the nuts and bolts of putting together a biz is invaluable as well as having the support to guide you through it. One of the really valuable things about B-School was getting to be around so many amazing women, all of us learning and growing together.”
“After enrolling in B-School and working through the course, I have MUCH more energy (I am literally infused with energy all the time), I feel more CONFIDENT and I feel like I have evolved into a fuller more complete person. Marie's charisma was contagious. My business has a stronger foundation than ever before. I know the impact of this one single program will provide lasting, ongoing results for my business over a lifetime. Not only did I get instant results in transforming my business, but I know I will be seeing BIG results FOREVER as a result of B-School! I am so glad I made this investment. It was a steal for the amount of value I got out of it! The team over-delivered on EVERYTHING! In fact, the experience was absolutely invaluable!”
“I've taken a lot of classes, masterminds, etc and this is the best learning format I've experienced. Most people don't take it all the way. You provided a great learning experience, created community with the class, and offered ongoing support via the weekly Q&A and most importantly strong content.”
"I have done many many e-courses. This was by far the best. It was the most expensive, but the most valuable. I would recommend it for any business owner and also for anyone who, like me, was unsure of their business. Now I have clarity."
"B-School has helped me see marketing with new, more entrepreneurial eyes. It's amazing how the same strategies and tactics take on a whole new meaning when you're a solopreneur, without the benefit of a team and an established company infrastructure to support you."
"I recommend B-School without hesitation. B-School has not only given me immediate concrete ideas that I can implement today, it has primed my pump so that my own ideas are now affirmed and free-flowing."
"My entire mindset and confidence around marketing myself and making things happen has shifted in a way I could never imagine. I have even become more creative! It was like learning all these tools has allowed me to open the floodgates to my own potential, and more importantly, given me permission to do what I know is right, now that I know the basic playing field. I am so grateful and I owe my business to B-School."
"It truly is THE business course you do not get in business school but should, and more."
"B-School is the most direct, most distilled, most delightful path to business enlightenment. Seriously. This course has no fluff whatsoever. It is packed with step-by-step actions to go from 0 to 60 in the shortest time possible. And it's not just about the basics. This is sophisticated content, yet it's clear enough for a newbie to glean so much and run with it."
Victoria Prozan McGlinn
"B-School is far and away the meatiest mentoring course I've participated in, and also one of the lower priced ones. The support and customer service is exceptional, but more importantly the content helps you to identify the exact problem or pain with your business as it stands and then shows you a clear pathway to a lasting solution. Marie as a presenter is inspiring, witty, focused, clearly passionate, and clearly interested in the true success of her students. My opinion is you'd be crazy NOT to do B-School if you're a woman looking to create a business that works and is crazy-fun to run."
"I feel inspired. B-School cracked my brain open and awesome tactical, creative, and practical ideas have been flowing out."
"This is all information I needed but felt like I could never get my hands on. Like it was a big secret or something. No one wanted to share it. Marie gave us what she promised."
"B-School has been an absolutely phenomenal experience, one that keeps on giving as I keep growing. I feel so incredibly lucky to have taken the leap."
"I would absolutely recommend B-School! I felt like I got my money's worth in just the first week of B-School, I've learned so much about so many things and I've grown in so many ways. My whole perspective is different and all the changes have been for the better."
"It's an awesome business education for the modern entrepreneur, especially for someone like me who is passionate about their work but doesn't know much about business. Marie covers all the bases and does so with style and enthusiasm."
"I would definitely recommend B-School because Team Forleo over-delivers on content and value. Every aspect of this program truly benefited me personally and professionally."
"Not only was it a great program to learn about the technical side of growing an online business, it was an inspiring, motivating, challenging program that tapped into why you started your own business in the first place — your passion!"
"I have and would recommend it to other budding entrepreneurs, especially if they don't know what they want to do yet, or have a niggling feeling about a dream they have yet to fulfill. I would also recommend it to women entrepreneurs who don't want to feel so alone out there. I think that the community and support it provides is unparalleled."
"B-School has changed EVERYTHING about my life and my business, in ways I never could have imagined. For the first year of my business, I felt like I was stumbling around in the dark trying to figure out what to do next. I didn't know what I needed to do to get the results I wanted. Now, I'm so clear about what I want to do next and B-School has helped me create a plan on how to get there, and has given me a community that encourages me every step of the way. I seriously cannot even begin to describe how much I love and adore B-School. It's the best thing I've ever done for myself as a woman and as an entrepreneur."
"Marie overdelivers. There is everything you can think of relating to the practical aspects of an online business. Marie is simply the best out there when it comes to marketing. Also her integrity is flawless. She's 100% authentic and so generous in her attitude, philosophy, and in giving us tons of state-of-the-art content."
"It is a very empowering program with tons of amazing information for the digital age. I believe that Marie has presented it better than anyone ever has before!"
"I would absolutely recommend B-School. I think that for people like me, who want to be entrepreneurs but have no way to understand what you need to do in the online world, it's an incredible program. There is nothing like it out on the market and Marie is obviously a gem operating in her power and changing lives. I felt safe and cared for, and that alone is worth the money."
"B-School focuses on doing business on the web and gives you a step-by-step strategy for getting on your feet or getting to the next level."
"I just KNOW so much more about online business than before. I feel like I've been given the secret password, and even though I haven't fully used it yet, I know I will. There's no mystery to it, the way you present it is so smart, effective and inspiring, and I just get it."
"It was a wonderful, comprehensive program that added SO much value to my life and business. I believe now, more than ever, that having a business and life that I love is not only possible, but on its way to me."
C. Anne Tipton
"It's the best way to get started or get better with online marketing and meet like-minded women. Also, once a B-Schooler, always a B-Schooler... THIS IS EPIC!"
"I've become far more goal-oriented—rather than just thinking, well, this is a good idea, I think, how is this going to further my business goals?"
"There is so much you will learn about your business that you didn't think was possible. A lot of questions will be answered and you'll have a lot of aha! moments and finally get your business to where you want it to go."
"B-School gives the tools a business owner needs to succeed online and is very actionable so if someone is serious about their business and makes the time, they will absolutely be set up for success."
"Every single person on this planet who wants/has a business NEEDS this."
Marinda Jansen van Rensburg
"Marie takes you by the hand and shows you not just how to build your business but reminds us all why we wanted to do this to begin with: freedom to spend our time and energy where we want, the ability to share our passion with others, the chance to build a business, and a community all our own."
"I would recommend B-School to absolutely anyone who wants to run their own business online. You not only gain confidence in building the business itself, but you also feel more confidence as a woman. It's easy to follow, very addictive, and anticipating. It's the most valuable content that's on my computer that I can access whenever I like. Even when you're just thinking about starting a business, this program will make you figure it out! Like Marie would say: ‘Everything is figureoutable!’"
"I would TOTALLY recommend B-School and already have to many friends. Several of them are ready to sign up as soon as another one comes out as they have seen the change it has made, in my life and business!"
"It was comprehensive, fun, informative, fabulous and rockin' just to name a few. Most of all, there is a level of integrity in B-School that surpassed all of my expectations, from the way I was treated as a customer to the way you encourage your students to treat their customers. You walk the walk and I was truly impressed."
"I'm starting to look at my "hobby," "wanna-be" profession as a business and am actively working at ways to make that happen. I've created a package and listed it for sale on my website. I've redone the whole website to make it more about what I offer and not just a "hobby blog," which is what it was before B-School."
"I believe in the material, the method and Marie. I love her core values and wish that more people operated like she did. The world needs more people like Marie Forleo."
"I would definitely recommend B-School because it is some of the best work I've seen done online. It is professional and comprehensive and I believe Marie and the team respect the process. They are giving people the services that they pay for."
"Everyone that is in business NEEDS B-School! B-School rocks in every way, shape, and form. It is fun, informative, transformational, inspiring, exciting, uplifting, and a MUST for every business owner. Marie is awesome and feels like a real friend who truly wants all of the B-School members to be successful because she really does!"
"It has elevated me from a wannabe to someone who takes myself seriously and really believes that I have the skills and ability to make this happen. B-School has shaped the way that I view other businesses and has made me more savvy about how to be a businesswoman in this wild new world."
"B-School is a total game changer."
"I love Marie's straightforward, honest approach in the course, and she's not afraid about telling us of what mistakes she's made in the past and how she's learned from them. She's also given me a totally different perspective on how business and marketing works rather than what it "should" be by conventional standards. I love it."
"B-School changed my life. I am SO glad I took the plunge. I had been floundering around for at least a year, if not years, knowing I wanted to make a change in my career, but not really knowing how or where to start. I feel like B-School gave me concrete direction, specific tools and an amazing network of like-minded individuals to put me on the right path. My to-do list is now a mile long, but it is all want-to-do stuff!"
"B-School is the fillet of a gazillion business-marketing-life advice books, with only the very best, most actionable tasks, and wisdom that only Marie has!"
"B-School just changes the way you look at life and business, encouraging you all the way to have the courage to make such a positive impact on peoples lives, including your own."
"I am better organized and understand a lot more about Internet marketing. I feel like a whole new world has been exposed to me and I am SO excited to launch even more info products!"
"Even if you're at the beginning stages, it's a program that you will have for life that you can continually refer to through the many stages of your business. You can join a wonderful supportive community of women and learn from one of the best in the business."
"This is the one and only program I've experienced (I've done quite a few) where I felt understood as someone who wants to create a new business that is meaningful and impactful. This is the only program where I got answers to the questions I had about starting the "right" business for me and the ones I want to serve (It's not just about going with an idea for the sake of doing something.)"
"I'm in love with my business again...best training I've ever done."
"I feel like through B-School I have a lifelong business mentor that I can refer back to any time which is a real comfort especially when I started my business alone, and am working alone all day every day. It has given me a connection to ladies all over the world in the same position as me and that has also been fantastic."
"Marie's course gave me the MUCH needed tools/ideas and tricks to help me dive DEEP into running a business online. I am 100% clearer on running my business online and how I need to wrangle my website to attract and keep new and existing clients."
Goddess Star Monroe
"B-School is THE ONLY reason I'm making money online in the personal development field. It is THE ONLY program that made the information clear enough for someone like me to understand."
"If you are an entrepreneur who is looking for concise, accurate advice on operating your business, B-School is a great way to go. I don't know of any other product available that puts exactly what you need in such clear terms—like a virtual toolbox with all you need to get things going toward making money."
"Best learning experience I've had and I am continually amazed by how much I have and will continue to learn."
"It's definitely the game changer for anyone who wants to set up their own business."
"The training is 'all killer and no filler' meaning what you get is all useble, practical, and applicable, and never feels like time-wasting or fluff (which I REALLY don't have time for). Also it's engaging and interesting."
Katie Manitsas (Spiers)
"I learned a lot and I feel it will totally change the way I approach my website and business now."
Marta Laurent Veciana
"B-School has completely changed the way I view myself as a businesswoman AND how I value my knowledge and services! It has taught me the fundamentals of running a business online—the info I never got in school. B-School has truly changed my life."
"I already knew that B-School would be awesome from the amazing recommendations that I received but I was overwhelmed (in a good way) by the incredible material and resources were shared in this program. I'm so excited about my business right now."
"It is training like no other. Delivered in a clear way and in steps, one building upon the other. It is going at your own pace and has a value that cannot be quantified. How you feel about your business absolutely transforms."
"It is so comprehensive. And Marie just makes it so fun. There's no way that you couldn't learn something from this class."
"B-School is the single most empowering tool I have ever come across. My heart, my mind, and my purpose all feel bigger. I feel truly courageous knowing that I have a solid framework to balance on and I can't wait to get out into the world and share my gifts. Marie, you and your team have created something incredibly special. Not just a great course but also a beautiful community of women who support and encourage one another to shine."
"I think everyone can benefit from this program. There were so many things I thought I was certain of but you showed me that I wasn't really clear about my purpose and direction. I think the biggest shift has been to give first and the money will follow. You shouldn't start a business for money, only for love."
"Before B-School I didn't know how to reach my goals, and now I do. The process is in motion. B-School is the single best thing/class/whatever I have done for myself in years."
"I see an opportunity now to really step up in my role as a professional. A lot of designers, including myself, don't allow themselves to be taken seriously or be really heard by their clients. Overall this is what I heard loudest, and those shifts are already taking place. I've also realized that I can use my expertise in other ways, such as creating e-books etc."
"It gives exactly what you need to start or to expand a business."
"Since enrolling in B-School I have started treating my business like a BUSINESS. It has inspired me to make decisions with the interest of my business in mind as opposed to my own personal preferences which sometimes held my business back...It has taught me how to see things clearly from the perspective of my customer, which has been revolutionary in the way I go about selling and marketing."
"It's a game changer. You want to learn how to market authentically and build the business and life you want? Do B-School."
"The entire experience was great and life-changing on so many levels."
"I really like how you consolidate a lot of practical knowledge into one course. I really needed something that would propel me through the process (deciding which direction to go, practical help on WordPress, how to leverage the Internet, etc.). It helps one chart a journey that's easy to follow and takes you from 'what business?' to marketing."
"I think it's the best school to learn everything there is to know about online business. I wouldn't want anybody else to teach me about online marketing than Marie Forleo. No one can match Marie's personality and style. She is a living inspiration, she breathes motivation and shares it with us in every possible way."
Ariane B. Louis-Seize
"I feel more legitimate, like a real businesswoman and not an amateur with a hobby. I have concrete steps to take in creating the business I want and a HUGE network of amazing women to interact with. I have narrowed down (somewhat) the areas I want to focus on and can see the potential in different means of communication, using video, teleseminars and articles. I am eager and excited to get started creating a business that showcases who I am and can help a lot of women all around the world."
"I felt that this course could 'change my life' and I am happy to say that I am sure I made the right decision. I LOVED every single moment of it, the community, all the help, the structure, the content, everything. THANK YOU all for this amazing journey."
Fabiana Zonca Nicora
"I had high expectations for this course and you've exceeded them. I knew I wouldn't be disappointed, but I didn't expect to be quite so blown away. Thank you!"
Diane DeGiorgio (Cesa)
"My experience has been life-changing and I know that the results I'm going to keep getting from working on the stuff I've learned at B-School will finally allow me to create a business that is sustainable."
"I would recommend B-School to those who are looking to kick-start their business and their sales but also remain authentic to their own vision."
"I've seen a huge change in my attitude and level of commitment. That mainly comes from observing Marie's behavior and level of professionalism. It really rubbed off on me, that I too can be just as impeccable as she is."
"Marie is amazingly inspirational, motivating, and SMART! The downloadable format of B-School means I can revisit any of the modules at any time and the information is invaluable for every stage of my business. I doubt I will ever stop using these awesome business-building techniques."
"It's the best business tool for women in this world."
"It covered all the topics that an entrepreneur with an online business needs to know. I think it should be mandatory training for all new business owners!"
"B-School truly is the wave of the future when it comes to learning how to market your biz, online or off in a true real world sense. You just get it! It's fun, it's entertaining, so it's easier to learn and put into practice, it's practical, it cuts out so much of the BS of trying to figure it out on your own...wondering if you're on the right path or not, it's realistic, and it's right on target with incorporating technology into your biz model, a necessity in today's world."
"I recommend it all the time as a one stop shop for everything you need to know about marketing online."
"B-School has changed my life. I will never again have a job that I hate or that I am not passionate about and doesn't bring me joy. I have been able to structure a new way of living that centers around doing something I love and in doing that I now have more time with my fianceé, my puppies, my friends and myself. I developed a yoga practice during this course because I now have TIME to do yoga. I am busier than ever before with my business but I am more efficient and more productive because I have a path to follow. I feel more alive, more productive, more creative and more driven to be happy than ever before!"
"Because of the training and content, I think this course should be the foundation of every woman's business."
"If you are serious about growing your business, and taking yourself and your business more seriously, this program provides a great framework to get you focused, and to keep you focused."
"Marie's friendly and fun approach to a normally stress-inducing topic, is magic. She makes it super easy to follow the steps and I looooove that almost everything was translated into bite-size worksheet fun."
"It's professional, delivers on the promise, a resource that you can revisit as needed, great supportive community. And Marie is just fabulous in her delivery of wisdom, experience, insights, and practical advice."
"Professional, fantastic training for those who are brand new or who need a refresh. I have a 20-year-old daughter who does my website, etc. I Told her she doesn't need an MBA, she would learn more from attending B-School."
"It over-delivered on content, and the support from others is fabulous."
"I would recommend B-School to anyone on a mission ready to make money giving their gift in this world. Why? B-School delivers the highest quality, most FUN, and fastest marketing education you can find...anywhere."
"I cannot believe the arsenal of weapons you have equipped me with to go out and start, run, and kick ass in business. If you can't figure out what you want to do with your life and business with this material, you ain't EVER gonna figure it out!"
"I've taken a LOT of online training. I have been let down time and time again with most, particularly those designed and led by men. I think because men think so differently than women and the online forums were full of both men and women who were so aggressive that I disengaged almost immediately. B-School is 1000% different. Everything Marie says is true: a supportive, warm and loving community of über-talented, driven and creative women (plus a few dudes)."
"Everything I learned has made me see my business (and life) in a different way."
"Life-changer, eye-opener and just all around amazing."
"It's the most valuable, most authentic Internet course I've taken."
"I would recommend B-School to anyone who has a business, is in a business, has a business idea or finds themselves preoccupied with their busy home-work-life schedule. This course gives you tools to sort through the small stuff and get right into identifying and developing your passion."
"I loved this program. It's going to be life-changing for me and it came to me at just the right time."
"I truly feel I have everything I need in this program to follow my passion and build a thriving financially successful and personally rewarding business for myself. I also feel it showed me how to have staying power once I am there and to continue increasing revenue and create new ideas as I expand!"
"I feel that it's a great way to demystify the online business world. The modules plus the B-School babes interaction plus the office hours made for a super motivating and effective combination."
"Being able to quantify, qualify, and then implement the entrepreneurial drive within is NOT something that is taught in ANY school — I know I have a Masters and not ONE class EVER even mentioned the real world method of being able to build a business, market said business online and scale said business to your existing and future lifestyle. B-School has given me not only the foundation but the future framework to build my current business and as many additional businesses as I choose — which is good for those of us blessed with Entrepreneurial ADD!!"
"Running an online venture is a unique business model with its own quirks. Marie taught so much about not only the nuts and bolts of running a business online but also about really letting your own passion shine through."
"It's like a professional business coach at your fingertips."
"It was fun, inspiring, helpful, powerful. It opened my eyes to many things I had NO idea about...and got me excited to make them a part of my business. It was thorough, practical, not at all boring and extremely user friendly. Plus, it also came with a huge network of other women and entrepreneurs that share similar visions."
Amanda Rose Walsh
"Marie is the #1 person to learn from in this domain, hands down. I'd follow her anywhere and recommend her to anyone :)"
Jena la Flamme
"It's incredibly valuable information which you can't really find anywhere else. It's entertaining and informative."
"B-School has changed my life, and the way I look at myself as a biz woman and it has taken me back to MY heart, AND I am earning more money AND making better service. I have regained my self-esteem and the belief in doing it MY way and doing it the way that makes ME happy. This has had a deep impact on my life..."
"This program is full of resources, advice, and peeps who WILL push you into new growth (growth you never imagined!)."
"I don't see how someone can do business, not only online but any business without it."
"It's an easy to understand and implement program that can help you whether you're a startup or tenured business owner."
"It completely changes my business. And I see where I can make it even better. LOVED this so so so so so so so so so much."
"I am more confident that I understand what online marketing is about now, and how to write sales copy that attracts more customers. I am also more in touch with what 'flows' for me and my business and what drains my energy."
"I would definitely recommend B-School because the content was high quality and top notch, the community is rocking and it was super professionally done top to bottom."
"To anyone who wants to get a really solid foundation for her business, and make connections to AMAZING women that will catapult your business forward, this is the program for you!"
"The material is practical and useable, and there are no platitudes, just great content. Plus, Marie is super engaging and fun, the kind of person you not only admire and respect, but feel like you'd love to hang out drinking wine with."
"I would recommend this to any woman entrepreneurs. (Or guys!) A lot of people don't understand all the bits and pieces that go into starting a business and getting it up and going. B-School definitely shows you the way...or shows you tha MONEY!!"
"It is a game changer! It helps [you] focus, learn, and can launch your business into a new place!"
"1. B-School lived up to its promise 2. Marie's warm energy seeps through everything I read, watched and listened to. B-School is as real and authentic as you can get without being in the same room as that wonderful woman!"
"The info is experience based, no BS, so real and honest and relatable. I totally loved it and don't think anyone with a clear intention to learn and grow could do it and not benefit."
"I would recommend it to my friends if they want to make a living online doing what they love, in their own style that they can be proud of...It's the best online program that I'd ever enrolled in."
"Marie is a role model and allows other women to become successful, too. To me Marie is a pioneer who truly serves women to become emotionally and financially independent."
"Before, I knew what I wanted to do, but I didn't know how to get there. Now I have the knowledge, tools and inspiration to head in the right direction."
"I would absolutely recommend B-School because of the simple, precise and easy to manage process of building your dream business. I also love that there's minimal to no fluff in the teachings, just pure and effective content."
"You learn how to be empowered for a successful life and business."
"I know it's the best content out there — there's no doubt in my mind that the B-School training will be relevant and useful to me for life."
"Marie helped me get clear on the steps I need to take, and be realistic in goal setting and what I should expect (no get rich quick and false promises). This calms my overwhelmed feeling. AND the community plays a huge part, being surrounded by so many women living a similar reality of wanting to lucratively share their passion with the world is so refreshing and encouraging. We understand each other, provide feedback and celebrate wins a special connection is created with these women that I do not have with friends and family."
"I've learned more about online marketing (and marketing in general, I think) from B-School than I did in over a decade as a corporate marketing executive. Real, actionable knowledge. And the community of women is unmatched in other professional networking groups I'm a member of."
"I think it's a great way to shift your mindset and start thinking differently about what is possible in business today. It's given me a new perspective and totally flipped my vision on its head...in a good way :)"
"It's helped me in every single aspect of my entire life and helped me want to become a better person!"
"It covers everything you need to know about taking your business online, about starting and about growing. It's the one program I keep revisiting over and over and over. And then you feel like you're spoken to as a whole human, who also has a life outside your business. Even if the business part does take up quite a lot."
"Seriously, if you are committed to taking your business (or business idea) to the next level, this is the course for you. It will change you. It will change your business."
"This is a game changer for anyone thinking of starting a business, moving to the next phase or who's in a biz rut."
"It has empowered me to pursue an entrepreneurial career. It's given me an overflowing box of tools that I've found to be effective and comprehensible to use and that I know I will reach for again and again as I hit various benchmarks within my business. It's given me a community of like-minded women (and men) who are ambitious, enthusiastic, successful, caring and committed to making a positive impact on the world."
"This is such a no brainer program. For anyone who wants to build a business online this is a must-have program."
"It's the quickest/most effective program I have seen yet. Marie puts business into the simplest of components and makes you feel confident in your ability to execute and excel!"
"It's comprehensive training that is easy to digest. You really don't need more than this to start and grow an online business."
"It's an encyclopedia of how to's for anyone wanting to get their biz off the ground."
"I have never felt so happy with a program. This program delivered in every possible way. It really jumpstarted a program I had put on the backburner and gave me the confidence to move forward. Marie is so totally inspiring and motivational and knows her stuff like nobody's business!"
"It makes so many aspects of business that may feel like a mystery...not a mystery and you don't have to figure it all out by yourself. Here's someone who's done it and done it super well — ONLINE. Plus Marie is so encouraging — you'll be inspired to understand better, take action differently, go for it, all while being YOU."
"I knew I needed lots of help launching, marketing and selling it. After looking around a bit at what was out there help-wise, I knew RHH B-School was the right place to go."
"Since enrolling in B-School, I have finally decided on my Ideal Client or should I say, I'm feeling really comfortable in who my Ideal Customer is."
"I have just loved this whole experience. Saying it is life-changing is an understatement: this has created not only tons of business knowledge and value but really the connections that I have made are so meaningful. I really feel like having the Babes around is an army of amazing-ness both in the sense of connections professionally and personally, and a wealth of love and knowledge."
"Marie is so genuine, grounded, trustworthy and fun. I like how she makes everything simple, colorful, real and immediately applicable. I got SO many new ideas from this course that I knew it had to be the real deal, no gimmicks."
"B-School is like a tonic for dreams. It's helped mine to grow stronger in a sustainable way so that not only can I be more abundantly supported by my work but the maximum number of other people can experience the connection, healing, and creativity that I've already been able to bring to small groups in my own city."
Melanie St. Ours
"I would recommend B-School to anyone with a clear dream for creating an online business or to anyone wanting to closely examine and advance their current business."
"B-School gets a big recommendation from me for anyone that has a business and is looking to take on online marketing in a big way."
"Would I recommend B-School? Ab-so-friggin-lutely!"
"B-School is a kickass holistic program that teaches how to own your value, use your talents, and highlight your individuality to create a personal brand that ROCKS. The most powerful thing that I have learned is that when you have vision and stay true to yourself you WILL make money. By implementing Marie's formula you WILL make a LOT of money and be more fulfilled and happier than you ever thought you could be."
"I truly believe you won't find a more comprehensive, down-to-earth, action-oriented program around."
"I am definitely more confident because I have a clearer action plan to take my business forward. The program content is phenomenal because of the clear bite-size videos (love that they aren't too long) and the very helpful Fun Sheets. One HUGE factor for success is the community of women — the engagement and support is so so so valuable."
"It has all the information anyone would need to create a very successful business online."
"It's life-changing and really kicks your ass to get out there. It gives you everything you need so it's either...let's do this or let's not. It's your choice if you want to be successful or not."
"The information that we received was more than I ever expected we would get and it was invaluable. I learned so much and everything I have learned is so easily implementable."
"I am ready to take my business to new heights and refresh my brand and services this fall. Most importantly, I LOVE my business and can never, ever see myself going back to a job. I'm making it as an entrepreneur with much thanks to B-School."
"Marie rocks with a great energy and witty humor, while she delivers incredibly useful content, in a very visually appealing way."
Tammi Joy Parsons
"HUGE WEALTH of content; accessible, practical, implementable, amazing community; Marie's proven track record; and the price was right!"
"This is sound, valuable business advice."
"It's the best business tool for women in this world."
"It's the best and most solid business training ever. There is NOTHING like this out there. It's every business owner's bible."
"I strongly believe that B-School is the most amazing all-round-everything-is-covered resource for anyone in business or just starting out (or even just thinking about starting out). And it's so. much. fun!!!"
"I recommend Marie to EVERYONE! I think that B-School is amazing and that the information is BEYOND!"
"My business has taken on a life of its own! I know that B-School, and doing it more than once, has had an impact on the way that I think about business in general. It's given me the tools and know-how to really build a profitable business."
"You could spend a lot more time learning all this stuff or trying to figure it out — why not go right to a proven success as the source?"
"I would recommend B-School to anyone looking for clarity, practical advice and hands-on tips for making your business the best it can possibly be."
"B-School gave me the tools + know-how to start my online business."
"I would highly recommend B-School because it is the BEST training online for starting your own business or improving on an existing business."
"Marie gave, gave, gave so much and kept giving in all the calls — going way over time (each and every time!). Marie kept setting the example for the fabulous B-School community: loving kindness, generosity and respectful boundaries."
"It's inspirational and supplies the nuts and bolts to DO and accomplish things. Because B-School encourages not just dreaming but dreaming BIG."
Susan Smith Laycock
"This course is the full package. It made me believe I could create a successful business and has given me the tools to make it happen."
"It's a "One Stop Shop" to getting your "B" on!"
"Absolutely loved it! I think it's a kick-butt program for anyone interested in being successful. It gave me the confidence and tools I need to launch a profitable business."
"I really think that the whole B-School concept is based on what the future of business will be like and I can already see it happening when I surf the web. I hate the idea of reinventing the wheel, so I would recommend it as a means of approaching the creation or improvement of a business in an innovative way that actually works and that is likely to set your business up for success without having to do an expensive MBA or learn from scratch without support."
"I'd recommend it to any new or established entrepreneur who is really ready to take action and uplevel her business and life!"
"This will go down as one of the best experiences of my life."
Mary Ellen Geitz
"Shortly after enrolling in B-School (in the first 2 weeks), the business I started over the last year — to prove to myself that I could build a business and thus teach other people how to — hit two major goals: I was published in the New York Times and tracked to six-figures."
"I will recommend B-School to everyone and anyone that has just that little bit of fire in them. I found that B-School is not only educating me in business, but in life!"
"LOVE the energy. LOVE the tactics. LOVE the course. LOVE the community."
"I believe the program delivers exactly what it promises — and it promises an awful lot!"
"B-School is the only place where we women can get this caliber of online marketing — it's a one stop powerhouse of information."
"The program is like graduate level business school — the resources and community are fantastic."
"I think this is great way for women entrepreneurs to realize their potential to transform their business into something that means more than the actual product or service. It covers the big overall goals and small details in a way that is very easy to understand and implement."
Stacey R Wiseman
"I cannot recommend B-School enough! If you want to build and run a business of your own today it is a MUST! Marie's knowledge and passion really bring the content home, and the beautiful presentation and structure of the material makes learning what e-learning should be. Best of all, this isn't the same old recycled masculine sales letter crap. This isn't about scammy Internet marketing. It's about your business, and about using the Internet too."
Liv (Elizabeth) Campbell
"I have such a greater understanding of marketing and online businesses that it's like a total transformation took place. I feel more confident and outgoing about selling what I believe in and helping others. My whole perspective has changed."
"It changed my life. It changed the way I want to live my life."
"At the end of the day the program delivers on its promise! I learned a whole lot from this, I applied it and it's starting to work!"
"On every level, B-School has affected my life...I am even more organized and productive like crazy; I would say my output has at least doubled, and I am happier."
"Regarding not only my life, but also my business, I really have learned how to better relate to my clients, my family, and my friends. The deep emotional work required in the first week of this program — the foundational work — was SO missing before. Now I feel I have a system that works and makes sense, not one I'm pulling out of the sky or hoping will work. I literally wake up each day with such a different perspective on business. B-School is a beautiful thing..."
"I feel more confident. I have a community of support. I know things now that I had no clue how to do before. I am incredibly grateful. You set the bar high and walk your talk."
"It was life altering. It will absolutely change your business overnight. If you only implement one of the modules, it will rock your world."
"B-School saved me years, if not a lifetime, of working for countless hours in a business that would not make me happy and did not inspire me. The public interest in my business increased 100% and the leads increased by 70%."
"B-School is THE most valuable training I have come across to date that will help guide me to where my biz needs to be in the future."
"The program is very organized and very thorough! It is full of useful information and is a great program to help anyone get clear and serious about their business."
"B-School is a great place for budding online entrepreneurs to get familiar with the fundamentals of modern marketing and create a business action plan that will work."
"The one major change is that I am inspired to really dream big, and have confidence that I can get there one step at a time!"
"Hands down the best business training program I've taken."
"It gives us the tools we need to succeed online. There's so much crap on online marketing training out there and this one teaches valuable skills that are practical without any sleaze or douchiness. Classy, elegant, sophisticated, and FUN!"
"I would definitely recommend B-School for any woman looking to change her life and her business. Why? Because B-School gives you all the education and tools to build the business that will help you live the life of your dreams."
"I've saved myself years in getting my business on its way to happening. I say this because I've already spent a couple years starting and stopping [a] few times because I would come up against things I couldn't figure out while B-School has given me all the resources, tools and tutorials I need each step of the way. I no longer feel overwhelmed that once I complete one step I won't know what follows. I've also saved hundreds by waiting to launch my website and avoiding the purchase of unnecessary programs or products."
"I would definitely recommend B-School to anyone serious about starting or growing their online business. What one needs to know seems endless and Marie's program covers an incredible amount of material."
"Business: I have a solid framework that B-School helped me develop and a realistic timeline to follow to build my business over the next two years. I am more motivated, I get the things done that need to be done instead of feeling overwhelmed. I've learned to break things down into actionable steps. Life: More confidence and clarity in EVERYTHING."
"It's a no-brainer to recommend B-School."
"I'd recommend it to anyone who was really serious about exploring their own business or getting it to the next level. It helps with *every* aspect of what you need to do to keep things rockin' along. I mean, this program goes DEEP. Plus, Marie keeps it fun, light, motivating, and real. Anyone who wants to grow their business with kindness, gratitude, and good karma should sign up for B-School right now."
"I'm more confident about the change I can make in this world. I no longer feel paralyzed about all the steps to create a business and a life of my own passionate making."
"Marie has helped me to see myself and my business as a blessing to my customers. That is a huge change! I went from "Who would want to buy anything from me?" to "I better get going because someone out there needs my help!" I went from afraid of selling to loving the idea of connecting with people who are in need of my services."
"I am confident about investing in myself! I am confident about my future and the direction my life is heading. I've got some AHhhhmaaazing new friends from across the globe. I am ready to take risks that I didn't have the cajones for before!!"
"B-School has been life-changing and will, without doubt, continue to be so. I am more confident, mature and motivated in my business and personal life. I feel MUCH more secure knowing that I have the tools to create the type of lifestyle that I desire for my husband and daughter. I am a better wife and mother because I believe in myself, and can pass my knowledge and success along to my daughter. My business is fully formed and I have a fantastic brand that serves others. I am making more money than I ever have and am confident in my abilities to sell, market and be exactly who I am."
"I have so much more confidence in my business, which radiates into my life. My radiating confidence has been truly weeding people out of my life and my business that just weren't right in the role they were in for me. It's been life-changing and empowering."
"I have felt more positive and like I have the tools to be successful...I can envision what success looks like in a way that I never had and I feel confident that I will be able to live out my dream as a stay-at-home mom, making money and living a life I love."
"The confidence, passion, and determination I have gained since starting this course is amazing!"
"One important change in myself is increased confidence in my intuition and business skills. I have been running a successful business for almost two years, but I didn't know that I was doing a pretty good job. I doubted myself a lot. B-School showed me that my instincts are good and I'm on the right track."
"I have the confidence to dig deep within and pull out even more exciting concepts, define how they can manifest, and off I go. Phew! I'm liberated."
"I am more strategic about how I approach things. I feel excited about the future as I feel like I have a roadmap to show me how I want to set up my business/website. I keep talking about the 'awesome course I'm doing!' in so many different contexts. I feel more confident that I can do this thing, whatever it is."
"I have been completely out of my comfort zone since I signed up and I have therefore been on a roller coaster of emotion and fear. But of course in the end, I am so much stronger, smarter and richer. I have learned how smart and capable I actually am. I'm slowly learning how to find and trust my own voice."
"I am more positive about my outcome and that I can actually make money with my expertise."
"I have accelerated in dropping the remaining—and often the hardest ones (there to prove to ourselves and God how badly we really want it!)— blocks to stepping into my full power and unleashing my story and message."
"Confidence has sky-rocketed. I'm more relaxed, yet focused and have found my footing in the world. It's so much more than business building and creation. It's been a full life overhaul for me."
"I have become more confident in my ability to stand up for my monetary worth, and gain a clearer picture of where I want to go. It has also taught me the importance of being true to my word (saying I will do something, and doing it), AND the importance of scheduling and FOLLOWING THROUGH!!!!"
"As an introvert I had not embraced social media (Twitter/Facebook etc) as I felt it just wasn't for me. I was therefore quite closed off, and didn't share my life with anybody online — even my friends. Before B-School started, I made a conscious decision to be more open and let my guard down, and once I joined the Facebook groups and started interacting my self-acceptance went to another level and I finally felt free to be who I am and to love that feeling."
"I think that I have realized that I CAN do this...I've really had to face a lot of fears during B-School."
"I have much more confidence in myself and am inspired to make the commitment to stick with this dream of mine — NO MATTER WHAT."
"I have tons more knowledge on how to build a business. I feel like I am becoming an expert in my field (as far as knowledge base). I have gained so much confidence about myself. B-School is fantastic for biz development, etc, but it also is an excellent personal development program. I've read/listened to on tape a lot of the books Marie has mentioned as references for B-School materials and each book has created a paradigm shift within me. If I hadn't gone through B-School I wouldn't have heard about these amazing authors and learned so much about myself."
"More confidence and more hope about my business. It has been almost two years since the launch of my online service and it is still not financially where I would like it to be, but I have a lot more confidence and knowledge about how to get there. I feel hope that I am well on track for running a wildly successful business."
Elizabeth (Lilly) Allison Steirer
"I lost my confidence a while ago and this course empowered me to be "me" and to be proud of it. It got me back on the driving seat. I make decisions now, I am more organized, I love the business side of my company (I thought I was rubbish at it) and now I know my voice is important so I give my point of view. I am much more positive about life and business and I just know I am going to make it. Now I have the tools for the job. I have to practice, practice, practice but I CAN do it."
Fabiana Zonca Nicora
"My confidence has increased knowing I have all these B-School tools to go back to and know what to use as I move forward with implementing my business. It's all here...I don't have to search and be confused by listening to too many people."
"[I have] more confidence about entrepreneurship and particularly about the notion that my specific individual gifts and talents can contribute something to the world and help change people's lives."
Sabine de Cock
"I know that you know your stuff, are a powerful example of what is possible and are incredibly generous. One of the things I like best about you Marie is that you keep it simple and help me feel that I can do this in my own business."
"I'm definitely more energized about getting on with and properly starting my business. I have been stuck in second gear for far too long and now I know that I am going to get it out there and I am going to succeed."
"[I'm] newly committed to asking for what I need. The confidence Marie exudes in her videos is infectious. I want to feel as confident as she appears. Part of that is asking for help on the bits that I find challenging. Learning and actively making the load lighter are incredible results from the program."
"I believe in myself more and that my business idea will work."
"I have more confidence and direction to have weekly blog posts and a plan for my monthly newsletters without the fearful 'what what what shall I write?'"
"I have renewed optimism and enthusiasm for new products that I am now working on as a result of the many lightbulb moments in B-School...I feel more confident and sure of myself and my business and my ability to make money."
"Going through the program helped me see that it COULD be done, despite all my fears."
"I feel more confident about what I'm doing. I handle my relationships better, personal and professional. I set better policies and honor them. I have more systems in place that keep my mind from feeling overwhelmed."
"B-School, and Marie herself, gave me the courage to start thinking for myself and embark on a journey of self-discovery to find out who I really am and what I really want in my life."
"Fear, inaction, whatever you want to call it — I was terrified and stood still. With B-School I am moving forward and taking action on the things that I know need to change in both my life and my business. I also don't think I'm so crazy anymore. :) I used to wonder what the hell I was doing, can I really do this, can I really make a difference, and I feel like I'm not the only one. I don't feel alone, and I love moving forward!"
"I am moving in the world with more confidence, and feeling WORTHY of living my purpose through the business I am creating!"
"I have more focus and direction. I know what I need to do now and that makes me more confident."
"I feel more empowered and confident!"
It provides CLARITY, MOTIVATION, and an amazing SUPPORT system. It addressed the fears I had about starting my own online business.
"My business is doing better than ever and I am moving toward a business transition that is way more inline with my ambitions and passions. I have some serious confidence in my business, where I am heading, and how I can help others to achieve success (like mine!)."
"I've become more calmly confident, rather than just merely self assured, and my business has benefited from less stress and a more relaxed attitude about success."
"I'm more confident with my business idea and goals and it really helped me to see that I CAN DO THIS!!!"
"The most significant change for me is internal — armed with my B-School resources, I feel more confident about being an entrepreneur and businesswoman."
"I feel more confident about where my business is going, how I'll handle growth, etc."
"Thanks to B-School I am not afraid to ask for things. I've connected with fellow business owners, developed a team of interns, created strategic cross-promotion opportunities, worked with excited affiliates and even added a former client to my sales team. B-School has given me the kick in the ass I needed to GET HELP. I was trapped running my company all by myself, and knew there was no more growth I could generate. And without growth, my business would soon be on the decline. Thanks to B-School I am growing faster than I could have imagined!"
"Confidence confidence confidence! I have a spring in my step and just *know* that I can do it — whatever it happens to be!"
"I'm more comfortable being uncomfortable. I recognize it as growing pains and don't misinterpret the feelings with doubt about my ability to create a successful business. I don't love the uncomfortable feelings, but I'm able to accept them simply as that, uncomfortable."
"I'm a more confident business owner. I am relieved to find out I'm not the only business owner who struggles."
"Since enrolling in B-School I have become more confident in my skills, and really have a clearer vision of how to run and operate an online business."
"I have a lot more ability to focus and a lot more confidence in myself. I am wasting way less time with old B.S. behaviors in my interactions with people."
"I feel more confident about taking a business idea from A to Z and getting it off the ground. There were so many times I would have an idea but lacked the knowledge and confidence to really make it fly."
"My confidence level has increased tremendously in terms of feeling secure about what I am creating and who I am in this busy crazy market."
"I am a lot more confident in regards to myself and my business. I went from being terrified of putting myself out there and getting clients, to asking people I barely knew what my best traits were, sending surveys out to get feedback and doing market research and submitting guest blog posts left right and center."
"I am more confident, more excited to get up in the morning, so much more creative, empowered and overall happier."
"I am more confident, see more potential in situations, and now I know everything is figure-outable. It forced me to take certain steps sooner in the process, like contacting potential team members I might have previously considered out of my league. Also, the first few days I felt a LOT of fear and wanted to run the other way, but I was able to encompass that, and I know now that I can do it every time I feel overwhelmed or scared."
"It has given me the confidence in myself and my abilities, and a can-do attitude that I can and should tackle challenges larger than myself."
"I'm more confident with my business and putting myself out there."
"At the start of this year I decided that I would take a chance and step out of my comfort zone whenever I got the chance, and with B-School I have been out of my comfort zone more than I have been in it! But it feels good as I know I am growing and moving forward."
"It has given me the confidence I needed to take my business to a new level."
"I have become more confident in my ability to get this project/business off the ground...with some research, everything is "figure-outable."
"I have a greater sense of "I can do this." I have moved from no idea what my business will be to three solid possibilities around which I will build profit plans and then evaluate."
"I see myself having a new more thorough perspective on the way I approach my business. I feel more confident about the control I have over the success of my business and how hard I will persevere to have what I want in my life."
"I am SO much more confident! I understand my value and the value of my work."
"My confidence has boosted a lot. I feel validated by Marie. Until I found her, I felt like the odd (wo)man out and like no one was real or authentic or cared about helping others and being genuine and good-natured and generous. Seeing her have the courage to put herself out there and be herself made/makes me feel like I can do anything too. This whole experience has been perfect divine timing for me. Things are just clicking thanks to Marie!"
"The transition of going from working for others to creating a brand and building my own business is a big mind shift...I believe the true gift for me has been an increase in my self-confidence to share my talent and to accept that it is valuable and that making a great living from it is a given. The confidence to do it all is EVERYTHING!"
"I feel waaaay more business savvy than prior to B-School, which has boosted my confidence overall."
"I've learned to value myself and I have gained confidence doing so."
"I've found myself looking for ways to stand out, rather than being a wallflower."

"I'm more confident, more empowered and more conscientious."
"I would recommend B-School for the joy and empowerment it brought to me and all the other folks in the program. It really helps you to reposition and see your business/life from a different perspective while removing the fear and mind chatter that can be involved with such ventures. I would recommend it for the empowerment... I feel like I can do anything now."
Suzanne Ragan Lentz
"B-School has boosted my confidence in myself and my business idea."
Melissa A. Rowe
"I'm far less fearful of taking risks and pushing the envelope."
"I'm more clear on knowing that I can accomplish my end goal of building out my business program and adjusting it as needed to scale my business to fit my lifestyle as it changes along with my business. Having two young children means that your life will undergo several changes and having a base to fall back on and tweak the business side of my life has given me a security and peace of mind I wouldn't otherwise have had."
"I now take myself seriously. I think all this female power is contagious and I feel more confident and ambitious!"
"My confidence has skyrocketed. Not only in my business, but in knowing that I am capable of taking care of myself, no matter what."
"I don't doubt myself as much anymore, I have courage to step out of my comfort zone, and I'm much more clear and focused on what I want to achieve and how I'm going to get there."
"I'm more willing to take a risk — to step out and trust that I'll figure out a way to do whatever needs to be done. I'm more comfortable moving outside my comfort zone."
Mary C. Weaver
"I've redefined my business and where I want to go with my life. I'm no longer afraid to do exactly what I want to do and where it will take me."
"B-School is a well balanced step-by-step no-fear program that boosts business and self-confidence."
"I am much more certain of what I want to do in my business, more confident."
"I feel hugely confident and joyous sharing what I do."
"I am more informed now, and therefore am more confident when making business decisions."
"I have the confidence to be more authentic and just be me rather than what I think people expect of me. This has allowed me to flip my business model, overhaul my website, reinvent my services, start creating my own vlogs and be much more playful in general. It feels like I can hold life more lightly."
"B-School has given me the confidence to move forward and trust that I have the ability to translate my natural given talents into a profitable business!"
"It made me feel like: I CAN do it."
"The biggest benefit for me has been the change in the way I think about what's possible. I know I can do this and create what I want. Marie's example shows me what I can build — and it's exciting!"
"The biggest shift has been around my thinking. I am open to possibilities that I didn't even know existed."
"It has given me more confidence in being a business woman. Someone once said that if you don't take your goals seriously it's a hobby not a business. I'm 100% business now."
"I challenge myself to go outside my comfort zone a lot more now."
Raquel Wilson Sow
"I feel much more confident about myself and how I intend to run and grow my business. I did just have my first guest post (which was very exciting) on a blog with over 300K readers! That was a big personal triumph."
"I have more confidence that I can have a successful business. Marie would discuss the exact thoughts and obstacles I would be having. I thought, "How insightful...she knows me and what I am thinking."
"My confidence is through the roof, astronomical. I was on the verge of seriously quitting and just making this a passion project but B-School focused me, showed me my business model and gave me the courage to persevere over my own doubts and naysayers."
"I feel much more hopeful about business. I'm much less overwhelmed, and have higher aspirations for my income than I previously imagined were possible."
"I have seen me gain confidence in refining my business idea. Also, it made me ask myself many questions and look at many aspects I wouldn’t have thought about if it hadn’t been for B-School."
Daniela Álvarez Keller
"I was always a push, push, type person, pushing the river, now I have more faith that I am doing the right things at the right time — even if I am doing nothing."
"In terms of myself, the greatest change is simply, yet spectacularly, more confidence in being ME in my marketing and overall in any situation dealing with coaching. It's a concept I've heard, and yet it's hard to master, I had taken on a lot of layers of "corporate" despite my dislike of it. This class was the cheerleading I needed to get to the next level in getting BACK to my real me."
"It will skyrocket your confidence in your ability to take charge of your business. You learn everything you need to know to get a great foundation and then can continue to use the material at each stage of your business to grow and build."
"B-School has also given me more confidence about my "genius" and I remind myself that I'm awesome and that I need to share my gift with the world. Everything is figure-outable runs through my head on almost a daily basis."
"About a year ago I was so fearful and wanting to hang onto every client even if they were time and energy vampires and now I have kicked off the doors of fear, stuck my head out and yelled "Fear! Fuck off, I am vibing AWESOME from now on!"
"I have a renewed sense of optimism about my future."
"Going through B-School, I realized that my biggest asset was ME."
"I'm much more confident in what I want to do now...I used to be very shy to talk to people, but now I enjoy it."
Marinda Jansen van Rensburg
"I've become more confident — in my business, my biz decisions, and myself. I've gained clarity around a lot of things in the biz that used to cause consternation."
"I am more confident about what I can do/achieve, and I know what I want to do."
"Confidence — I no longer feel so ignorant when it comes to business training. Whatever I don't know, I now know I can learn. If I have questions or need moral support, I have Marie and a big pool of classmates I can reach out to."
"Taking this course has totally wiped out a lot of my fears and feelings of isolation that have built up over the last few years as an entrepreneur in a non-entrepreneurial country."
"I feel much more confident about launching, like "I CAN do this." I've realized that its all a learning process. There's no possible way I can know everything I need to know BEFORE I launch, so I just need to jump in and do it, knowing that I can always tweak later."
"You have built a fire inside my soul to push forward, to not give up, to see a bigger mission, to believe, to fail, and to get up every single time I fail."
"I see myself having a new more thorough perspective about the way I approach my business. I feel more confident about the control I have over the success of my business and how hard I will persevere to have what I want in my life."
"I am confident, enthusiastic about moving forward, much more goal-oriented. I am also proud of myself."
"I see less fear and inaction in myself, specifically I see less resistance and more actions towards getting things done. I hear Marie's voice and attitude in my head when I'm hesitant. I then actually change my physical presence (e.g. sitting taller, standing straighter)."
"Marie, I am so much more confident in myself and what I offer the world. I speak with conviction about who I am, what I do, where I am in my business process and what is the appropriate next step for myself and my business. I have been "in the closet" about being a spiritual life coach for the past 7 years. I'm "out of the closet" now."
"I feel more confident in how I conduct myself in all aspects of life. Less afraid to present myself as an expert in my field. Less afraid to be myself in general. This change in how I feel about myself was worth the course in and of itself. In my business, I feel more confident in developing offerings and in designing copy to promote them. I haven't started my online business yet, but I'm more confident in promoting my local business and just printed out some flyers to set a new idea into action!"
"My confidence is way up. I didn't realize that I had this hesitation about my business before, I wasn't shy about it or embarrassed, I was proud of it, but I always felt it wasn't good enough, it wasn't where I wanted it. Now I realize it is frickin awesome, and so am I — RIGHT NOW. Who cares what it can be or will be, I work my tail off and I need to be super stoked on it now."
"It is the most solid, sexy and simple way to learn the IMPORTANT things there are to learn about building a business online. There's no one else out there doing it like this. And I would be surprised to see anyone do it better."
"Marie takes what can feel very overwhelming and complicated and breaks it down so you can actually do the work. I also found Marie to be very motivating and such a great role model."
"It's unlike any other training out there because Marie is unlike any other business mentor/coach out there. She is brilliant at helping you bring more heart and soul into your business, really tapping into who and what your ideal clients want, and building an authentic relationship with them."
"Not only does B-School teach you how to market yourself better online, but also how to create and sustain connections that turn ordinary businesses into life-changing movements. The conscious, driven and supportive community that B-School holds the space for has laid the foundation for an even greater level of success in my business and life by teaching me how to nurture positive, soul-aligned relationships with customers, affiliates, friends and business partners. The result has led me to create more meaningful work, become a stronger leader, be a more gracious giver, and serve happier customers."
"All the awesome information and the generous amount of time Marie invested with the class was simply amazing. I have taken other courses where the 'fame name' is there for a few minutes and then hands it over to staff. Not Marie — she invested right along with us. Impressive and well worth the investment."
"The education isn't just fluff. I'm so tired of 'workshops' that are sold for lots of money, and then they're basically YOU CAN DO IT over and over and over again. B-School was a dose of You Can Do It, paired with HOW to do it, and then topped with NOW DO IT."
"The information is specific, relevant, and useful. I feel taken care of (aka amazing customer service). Marie always over-delivers: the difference between getting a Happy Meal or the star dish at a five-star restaurant."
"There is nothing like it. I've always been conflicted between my desire to fulfill my purpose and my desire to get paid (well) doing it. This is the only teaching/teacher I've ever found that ‘mixes’ business with purpose. Usually you get one or the other."
"I love the idea that each one of us has a unique voice and gift to bring to this world. Marie acknowledges, guides, shows, and helps me believe I can make a difference."
"I would highly recommend B-School because rather than getting pieces of business knowledge and trying to implement to your business, you get the whole puzzle with all the pieces and instructions on how to put the puzzle together!"
"I think it covers a lot of things that those who are working for themselves need in order to thrive. Marketing can be such a $* four-letter word. It shouldn't be, and B-School does a great job getting people excited about marketing with easy to implement strategies all based in honesty and integrity."
"I like living in a world where people are loving, noncompetitive, and supportive of each other. I love living in a world where all are provided for and where we are using our unique gifts and talents to better the world. B-School teaches us how."
"I'm a happier person, a better mother, and a much better businesswoman after B-School! I saw how much I had to offer and how much I wanted to contribute."
"B-School has shown me that I don't have to be all business and serious. I can let my personality and who I am shine in a relaxed, personable way. I've found new freedom to create relationships and set up an environment for community to bloom around my business. I'm so relieved to find out that I can define the flavor and style of my business—which is great, since my flavor isn't ‘corporate.’"
"I would recommend B-School because I have learned information that I had not heard anywhere else, presented in a format that was engaging and inspirational. I believe this was the first step in a journey that will truly change the shape of my business, making it more personally fulfilling and profitable."
"As a new business owner, everything is completely overwhelming. You follow this expert to learn about newsletters. You follow this expert to learn about conversion rate. You follow this expert to learn about SEO, etc., etc. I ended up spending all my time buying and reading loads of e-books, and instead of concentrating on my shop, I spend all my time on these people's websites. I feel that B-School (i.e., you) is the only one who understands how important it is to have the foundation right and strong. That when you know the basics, when our hearts and intention are in the right place, it is not necessary to be an expert in everything."
"All the information is extremely useful and presented in a ‘non-douchey’ way. And I mean that sincerely. There are other programs out there that might even be as helpful or beneficial, but they don't resonate with me and they just turn me off."
"I'd recommend B-School in a heartbeat. There are a lot of coaches out there who make the same promises but don't actually take you by the hand and show you how to do it and that makes all the difference."
"Marie, you over-delivered and more. It felt as if you were in my head every step of the way, and I knew you your team and the community had my back. This is it! No turning back when you are faced with your greatness."
"B-School teaches useful biz fundamentals that you can immediately take action on, plus it addresses the psychological factors that inevitably come with starting and/or building a business head-on. It's the perfect combination for success!"
"It answers all the questions that no one bothers to tell you. From the basic (but important); e.g., I saw lots of people using WordPress, but I didn't know why, and the marketing side of things. I didn't have to sift through information. It was ALL necessary, engaging, and relevant. I remember watching the video of an ‘old B-Schooler,’ and she said she learned more in B-School than in the last few years of university. That resonated with me when I did B-School. Although there was a lot of info, it was, as I said, necessary, engaging, and relevant."
"I would recommend B-School to anyone starting or wanting to grow a business because it gets you thinking differently about business."
Katrina Marie Thibodeau
"I love the upbeat, confidence-inspiring presentation. And there's always a reason behind the activities."
"Marie really put it in perspective for me to see how online businesses can be run and just how profitable they can be. I have amazed myself in the forward thinking I have made my own. I see limitations in my previous business adventures and limited thinking. I want to leverage my time, make more money, give more back to help others, and affect more people without the confines of a desk job and traditional hours. I see now that I can make what I LOVE work for me and make me money."
"I love the way that everything Marie shares is so practical and functional while tremendously playful and fun at the same time. There is so much value to all of her content and I love how she exposes us to so many other valuable resources. I know this information is out there, I just love how she boxes it up into a tight little package for easy access, and we can then choose how we use it to expand our businesses. Love it!"
"It's valuable not only to take the course once, but also to take it again as a yearly refresher—every year your biz and life are in a little different place than last year, so it's a good way to refocus and reboot everything."
"Marie is so knowledgeable, and she brings her heart and soul to the table every time. I feel I'm in good hands."
"It is a great program to introduce you to the mechanics of 'pulling an online business together' from the ground up. It's presented in a no-nonsense style full of encouragement and support. And it covers everything you need to know! Not many programs can claim that!"
"It is one of those rare programs that actually over-delivers on the promise."
"Most importantly, it's very evident Marie both knows what she's talking about and is committed to helping people understand and apply her wisdom. I've taken some classes where people obviously had the knowledge but they were dialing in their response/participation for an online course, and other courses where my primary takeaway was that I needed to have more confidence in what I know because I didn't really learn anything from that particular 'expert.’"
"Marie and team Forleo were efficient, fun, and true leaders. From the first email, Marie took charge and shared how she ran things and negative comments were not a part of it. However, she told us what to do if we did have a negative experience and that she cared. Marie is not one of those coaches who is so impressed with herself that her programs become a self-proclaimed ego fest to how wonderful she is!"
"So many courses and so much info for women business owners seem to hone in on the lifestyle element of working for yourself. They promote the fact that you can have a nice little income and still be there to collect your children, too. This is wonderful and very worthwhile, but what I love about B-School (and Marie generally) is that there's inspiration to take it much bigger than this. I really feel that there's no stopping me from creating exactly what I want."
"B-School contains a lot of high-quality content and really has something for everyone. For people who have a desire for change but no real plan, the bonus Start Your Business Guide is perfect, whereas seasoned business owners can focus on the nitty-gritty of their marketing or website. To me, this ability to offer valuable information to the full spectrum of business owners was the most impressive part of B-School."
"I think it's a great way of getting to know tactics and strategies in a concentrated way...meaning that the info you get from B-School may be found in other places, but it's scattered all around and it would take way more time to find it. In B-School the advantage is that it's summarized, it's explained in a way that becomes practical—not just theory that you then have to find out how the heck to implement to your own business...I love the way Marie explains things in a simple way, just explaining, not acting as a business guru. She's cool." "
Daniela Álvarez Keller
"I do know that I can do this and all of the support Marie gave was just what I needed to motivate me to keep going."
"I would recommend it to people who I know aren't a fit for the traditional corporate world but don't truly know what opportunities they have."
"The most important thing for me is your emphasis on ‘making the world a better place by going for your passion and building a business on it/around it.’ If you would have left the heart/passion/giving out it would not have been for me. I love the combination!"
Eva Sadea Nylander
"Marie's enthusiasm, personal examples, and candor about overcoming obstacles are a tonic that inspires courage and figureoutableness. Those two drives are essential to grow and maintain a business at home while raising a happy, healthy child and keeping a loving marriage going."
"B-School really made me stop and ask the questions that needed to be asked...it's more than just a business program, it's a life program."
"I've read soooo many books on business, branding, marketing, etc., and it's nice to have all the bits and pieces in one place and specific to more online ventures."
"Marie’s is the first business course run by a female that did not make me feel bad for being a guy."
"B-School is valuable, life-changing, and full of "real" teaching and guidance. Marie truly cares and loves her community and that comes through in her content and office calls."
"I would definitely recommend it, it is fun, functional, and really digs deep. It’s what a lot of biz peeps need these days, especially solopreneurs and small businesses."
"I loved the community and how incredibly diverse it is. In the past I have been in programs surrounded by hundreds of people who do what I do (in their own way). I love that I was surrounded by all kinds of entrepreneurs in B-School. It was amazing!"
"Really and truly, there is such phenomenal attention to detail and such superb customer service from start to finish. It is awe inspiring and something I didn't expect."
"The practicality and endless ways to apply the materials of this course are staggering. Mind-boggling. Awesome to the max. Game changing."
"It is something that is beneficial not only for the first round. I love that you are in B-School for life and that you get to enjoy all the benefits of future trainings."
Amy Auset Rohn
"Superb job, Ms. Forleo and Team Forleo. The way in which the program was designed pushed me to truly think about ideal customers, marketing, and online presence. The program didn't just talk about those core business components; rather, it engaged and pushed me to the point where I had a very intimate understanding of those core components. With that intimate understanding came confidence that got me to step over the execution line rather than merely standing behind it."
"I like Marie's truthful, direct, fun style. Makes business more fun for creatives!"
"Before B-School I was losing hours trawling the Internet trying to find information on marketing and branding. So much of what is out there is gimmicky and complete nonsense, it was so hard to sift through all the crap. I was so happy when I discovered B-School, I finally felt like I could trust what I was being told."
Dr. Christy Fergusson
"I learned some of the most important business lessons I've ever learned. I loved the spiritual aspect and giving attitude as well. Business classes aren't fun—but B-School is, and I've learned more!"
"It's unlike any other business program out there. Fun, a little irreverent, and really pertinent. Kickass information that will help you bust the lead out of your business."
"It gets into step-by-step methods of how to implement many, many facets of a business, whereas a business school course does not make it apply specifically but just in general."
Donna Rae Yuritic
"This is so much bigger than just a business class. This is about realizing we are all here for a purpose, and if we could just focus on our strengths and have the diligence to set goals and follow through, we could all create lives more fulfilling than we could ever imagine."
"It's the perfect cool and concise way to learn how to be an empowered and successful entrepreneur."
"A breath of fresh and air and finally seeing a system in which to work to get maximum results."
"The general atmosphere you created throughout the process: empathy, enthusiasm, and support. There's a resonance that is very unique to you, Marie (and your team), which spreads through every part of the program. You show vulnerability and strength and made it clear that you care, really care, about us B-Schoolers."
"I see that it's common for the people in our lives to have doubts about our abilities to create and accomplish the things we are so passionate about. B-School makes me realize that there are other positive, multi-passionate women in this world with just as many amazing ideas. It's important for me to surround myself with these types of people if I want to succeed."
"Marie's way of teaching—she is born to do this! She is truly a no-bullshit woman and I truly respect her way of running a business. She walks the talk big time!"
"The information is kickass! And B-School had such integrity. I also really appreciate the layout of the program with incremental delivery of the information, and that each segment (or video) is kept short to make it easy to integrate into life."
"Thorough, fresh, unique, not cookie-cutter approach to marketing."
"As a multi-passionate entrepreneur I wasn't talked down to—I wasn't forced into compromise—I was spoken to. It was magical."
"At first, I wondered if it would include the kind of information I needed and wanted. I had a bit of that "I've studied and learned and read a billion things already" attitude. Yet, something wasn't working for me and I knew in my gut that I needed B-School."
"I learned more and worked harder on B-School than anything else I have ever done. I didn't study/work this hard in college (probably cause I was hanging out in bars most of the time then—and chasing guys), but, seriously, I learned so much, still learning, still working on everything everyday—it was AWESOME."
"It really is the most elegantly done comprehensive program for creating online products. You need something, it's there. Not sure how to make it happen, there are a million resources. All done for you."
"This has been the best program I have yet to experience online. I'm already hyping up all my entrepreneurial friends to seriously consider taking this the next time it becomes available! This has taken my business to a new level."
"It's a fun, engaging, educational program to get our heads around starting up a business we love and actually make it happen! And a lot of the stuff we learn can be implemented across our lives, not just our businesses."
"You won't just go to it for the 8 weeks but will come back to parts of it again and again as long as you operate your business."
“Since signing up for B-School, I have started to look at my business through a different lens and in more detail. I own a yoga studio and tended to look at my students from a yoga teacher perspective. Now I am also able to look at them as customers from a business owner's perspective. This is a good thing, though, because I was more focused on just what they needed as students in a yoga class, and now I can also see what they need as customers. It's pretty cool. I don't think I wanted to think of them as customers before.”
— dariece warren
“B-School isn't just for online business. So many of the concepts directly translate into brick and mortar, such as the perfect customer avatar—no one should open a retail biz without this! The amount of content they deliver is far exceeding the cost of B-School.”
— alisa mcpheron
“It works for ANY business!”
— marcie paige
“I think the biggest reservation I had was cost vs. value, since I had just gotten to know Marie Forleo via her weekly videos. I wasn't sure if the quality of the content would be worth the 2k or be relevant to my brick-and-mortar retail shop. But after seeing the videos Marie put out each week and an outline of what would be covered, I decided to splurge. It was a great value! ”
"I loved the quirky, super engaging videos. Until B-School, learning about how to run my business seemed paralyzing at worst, boring at best. Your humor, candor and wizardry made me excited and intrigued about a topic that has historically made my stomach turn."
"The material is excellent and the presentation is smart and sassy, which makes it fun! The whole message of B-School—branding yourself and being authentic in your business—is just wonderful. Marie makes business fun!"
Diane DeGiorgio (Cesa)
"Marie is so personable, so real, and so insightful. The videos are fun and funny, but you're learning every moment. This is the best way to learn."
"Marie makes marketing, sales and all that online techie stuff fun to learn. It's tough but it's fun and I can't think of any better way to absorb and retain a whole ton of information than to have fun!"
"I have never wanted to listen to "business" info for long periods EVER (my eyes would glaze over, and it has always sounded like Charlie Brown's teacher to me) ,but thank you, Marie, because you changed that from the second I watched my first episode of MarieTV. You make the jargon accessible and share your knowledge like we're chatting over a glass of wine, and I LOVE that."
“I love the style. I love it that I could come to a place where, as an artist (and a joyful, playful spirit), I didn't have to be bored with buttoned-up business lingo and where I could feel like I was doing valid business as an artist and intuitive.”
“B-School is like one of those juicy novels you just don't want to end. I loved every minute of it.”
"Such an amazingly fun way to learn business."
“I love the sassy, high-vibe, fun approach—it takes the yuck out of business and marketing. I'd recommend B-School to women (and cool men) who I know are ready to take their business online and put themselves out there and in particular to people who are change agents for a thriving planet. I am having my own coming out party after years of what I realize was a bit of an obscure presence online. So yes, excited about ‘putting myself out there’ online!"
“You are so inspirational, helpful, real, honest, caring, and fun! And all that you have taught us actually worked for you, the proof is in the pudding.”
“The way you combined different elements to address different learning styles, AND that I could download and keep everything has been a beautiful thing, because I can listen to the audios while I'm working out, or watch a video on my iPad while traveling. Awesome.”
“I think the content is so valuable and the way Marie presents it makes it light and fun and doable. I know that my life and my businesses will be forever changed and will reap benefits thanks to B-School.”
“It tackles issues head-on with humor and smarts and proven results.”
"It was so refreshing to have a program that was so down-to-earth, real, creative and FUN!!"
“It’s fun, supportive, and extremely useful, and no one else is teaching this stuff in such a cool way! I was always scared of the marketing world, but now that I have a much better understanding of it, it's far from scary!”
“The content is smart, savvy, unconventional, and yet still conventional in good ways. It's rock-solid information that savvy women need presented in a fun, playful, empowering environment that makes women feel SAFE enough to learn it.”
"It teaches business school topics without being stuffy and boring."
"For anyone who is in business this course is fun and so valuable!!"
"One of the most all-encompassing programs that takes a lot of difficult subjects and makes them digestible and actionable."
"You are so FUN to learn from! You make business feel accessible."
"It's the only online marketing program I tell others about. It's all-inclusive and taught in easy-to-follow steps, and you make it fun to do business + marketing."
"Marie’s information and what B-School offers is truly amazing and cutting edge, but most of all, I just adore her energy. She is not only full of knowledge and intelligence, a hard-studying student who truly cares to keep up with the latest news and trends, but she is such a fun, energetic person, which TRULY motivates even when I feel discouraged."
"I freakin' love marketing now, too! I liked it before, but it was kind of boring. Now that I'm using it for my business...it's love on a whole new level."
"Great information delivered in an entertaining way."
"Marie makes me laugh while kicking my marketing ass—what's not to love!"
"Marie makes everything fun and dynamic—her delivery of the information is superb, as is the encapsulation of the information in written/downloaded form."
"I LOVED the delivery of the course. The videos are so entertaining and I always come away high from watching them!"
Laura Pepper Wu
"Loved the way in which it is structured, very logical and the sequential delivery is perfect. Having video, presentation, plus exercise sheets and additional resources went beyond instructional, it made it approachable and a lot of fun!"
"It was loads of fun, and it stimulated my creativity so much."
Marta Laurent Veciana
"Marie's personality is so fun and unique, it makes learning this stuff really fun and interesting."
"I would totally recommend B-School to anyone who wants the nuts and bolts of how to run an online business. Marie does a great job at identifying the important things you need to know and delivering them in a fun and upbeat way, so you don't tune out halfway through or get overwhelmed."
"I love the FUN, positive, WELL-DESIGNED and high-quality vibe of everything. So many online courses don't realize how much design affects the experience. Marie understands this, and it really affects the overall B-School experience."
"The way that you approach and teach marketing is so authentic, easy and even fun."
"I was thinking of doing an MBA, which would have been more expensive and more time-consuming, and less practical and directly applicable to what I want to do."
"I've made back the investment in B-School + more."
"I've tripled my list size. Doubled my income. And most importantly, outsourced specific projects freeing up more time in my week."
"This investment has been worth every penny. Deepest thanks for the blood, sweat, tears, and class you all put into everything you touch."
"I have saved at least 8 hours in a week and my day now works and is very organized."
"It is definitively the best investment of my life for my life, not only for my business. THANK YOU! THANK YOU THANK YOU!! It gave me my confidence back, tools, and actual valuable knowledge, and there is no price for it."
Fabiana Zonca Nicora
"I feel like this was the single BEST investment in my company I have ever made."
"B-School was the best money I have ever invested in my business. I am forever grateful. Thank you Marie, Team Forleo, and the entire B-School community. I will cherish and benefit from this experience for the rest of my life!"
"It is an investment in yourself and your business and you are worth it."
Lisa Van Ahn
"I got so much out of it and know without question that it has transformed my life...I feel like before the course I was still on training wheels, and now I've put on my big girl shoes! It's an excellent program and well worth the investment."
"I saved around 4 hours a week and have been able to be far more flexible with my time allowing me to spend time on other things important to me."
"Go PRO! I started out trying to find out how to make it work without spending too much but sometimes you really have to invest."
“The massive content with the focus on the right things, the kickass delivery system, the live calls, the whole thing rocks end to end—and it's timeless in many ways. This is not just one-shot value.”
“I learned far more than $2,000 worth. You really over delivered on over delivering. It truly helped me get focused on ideas that will actually work rather than spinning my wheels.”
“B-School is well worth the investment and it offers something for nearly everyone whether just creating an idea for a business, or needing some guidance to move to the next level. B-School rocks!”
“Totally priceless! B-School allowed me to expand my vision and address what really matters.”
"I would recommend B-School in a heartbeat. It was THE BEST business investment I made, ever."
“I really feel that the information you offered in B-School was EXACTLY what I needed to learn, when I needed to learn it. It may seem like a hefty investment, but if you're trying to get great, and get great quick, this is a great way to learn how.”
“Plenty of bang for the buck, and lots of information that can be applied right away (i.e. tactics, not theory).”
“Any doubts I had about the value of B-School were totally eliminated in the first module! You rock!”
“I've applied the principles and they are in the back of my mind in everything I do. That's priceless.”
“The material is priceless and meets you wherever you are at in your business process. It pulls together so many intangible elements of creating, running, and growing a business. I simply cannot thank you enough. But I have to tell you—this program was far more intense than my doctoral program!!!! Woo!! And far more satisfying as well.”
Dr. Cathy Holway
"I've saved countless hours researching best practices and marketing ideas. Marie's expert insight into what will work (and what doesn't) puts me way ahead of the game."
"B-School is an insanely helpful program whether you're starting out or a seasoned pro. There's so much valuable insight, actual real-life stories, and examples and nuggets of wisdom—it MORE than pays for itself. And the community of women in the Facebook group who are there to support you, cheer you on, and even help you with accountability—totally and utterly priceless."
"I'd absolutely recommend it to everyone. The value is there. I'm certain that I will get more than 10x back what I invested. I feel more focused and energized, with a solid plan that really gets our customer instead of ‘selling’ to them."
"B-School is a game changer for me. Other than my college education, I've never spent this much money on any educational program. I was really hesitant but felt that I had to give it a shot. It's been worth every penny and then some. I will refer to my life from this point forward as BBS (before B-School) and ABS (after B-School)."
"The amount of information and great advice was worth every cent, and Marie's no-nonsense but fun approach to business, which is usually such a dry and boring topic matter, was a real eye-opener."
"The cost was a huge one, but B-School over delivered. The community that B-School provides is incredible. All of the info and resources are so high quality."
"What I would say to others and I am saying to friends—honestly, if the price tag is worrying you, you will get 10x if not more than what you pay, not just in your business but your life. It's cheaper than running a business in a half-assed way, draining your energy and resources."
"It is worth 10 times more than what I paid!"
"I'm truly grateful that I made the choice to invest in my business when I did (i.e. when JUST starting out), as it's given me great tools to lay the groundwork for my life's work."
"The heart, the organization, the information, the community are so completely worth it!!"
"It was worth every penny. The materials are top notch and even without the materials, the community itself is worth that price - the networking connections alone are worth a small fortune! And of course, lasting friendships are priceless."
"Simply committing to B-School has caused a colossal shift in how I present and potential customers view my business. In the past three months alone, I've had more new client inquiries than the previous two years combined."
"Over deliver, over deliver, over delivered! Incredible how you all managed to do it, but you did. I genuinely believe every penny that I invested in this program was worth it AND that the return will be tenfold. Who knows, maybe even 100fold."
"I really feel like I got a lot of value and I've barely scratched the surface."
"Your marketing module alone is worth the $2,000!"
"I estimate that I've saved myself about a day a week by following the tips and tricks I've learned."
"Just the first week of the B-School is worth $2000."
"I have grown my mailing list 30% more since implementing the suggestions provided in the opt-in segment of the website module. I have refined my offerings and am generating 30-40% more interest in them since doing that. I am consistently getting more social network love on my blog, and I have reached out to leaders in my industry and landed potentially career-changing collaborative projects."
"I think of myself as an entrepreneur now, which is a lifelong asset."
"The web training was worth $2K in and of itself. The entire program is way underpriced—thank you for that!"
"The value for the cost is outrageous, and no matter what business you are in today you need to have an Internet presence to reach a higher percentage of your ideal clients."
"The support and networking are worth the cost of the program!"
"It was a big investment. But it was worth every penny!"
"I will definitely recommend B-School because Marie rocks, she gives you more than you pay for, and her content is very valuable for any web-based entrepreneur."
"It's all of the knowledge you need wrapped up into one forum and so well worth the value and then some."
"I have saved $1,000's of dollars in hiring people to do what I now KNOW that I can do myself, thanks to B-School. Before B-School, I had already spent $1,000's to get help from marketing experts and designers, because I believed that I couldn't do these things on my own and if I wanted to be professional and know what to say online, that I would have to hire someone to do it for me. Now I can invest in the aspects of my business that I know that I cannot do on my own. This has saved me so much in resources as well as time."
"I found that Marie speaking from experience was invaluable. I found that I needed the accountability and paying that amount certainly provided that. And I found that if I wasn't willing to invest in something I knew would be beneficial, how could I expect my clients to do the same? So, yeah, it was worth it!"
"This was the best money I ever spent. You deliver beyond what you promise."
"B-School was easily the best online training I have ever purchased. Ever."
"This was the best money I have ever spent!!"
"The value definitely pays for itself."
"You get more than your money's worth."
Emelia Symington Fedy
"It's extremely comprehensive and practical and I am certain that once I have these changes implemented and start to break things down more that it will pay for itself."
"ZERO buyer’s remorse."
"I have already recommended B-School because it is clear that it generates results; and the principles allow you to do so with authenticity, transparency, and kindness. It gets your mojo going! The group dynamic is awesome. There is a lot of value in the class for what you pay."
"It was great training, very useful. Worth the money and more. Thanks for being such an inspiration for us women entrepreneurs. I am ready to tackle the world!"
"I would absolutely recommend B-School for anyone who wanted to grow or start a new business. It is a guideline on how to do it right. It will save people time and money and keep the fears at bay. It will support you (loved the Facebook group and members area) and the collaboration between members was a huge bonus that I hadn't even considered."
"Well, I relaunched/launched my website a week ago and I've already made $400. Which is amazing. My opt-ins have also increased!"
"It is an amazing bang for your buck. The value given is 10 times what you charge. I believe B-School can help any business transform itself to be more relevant and effective."
"The value is immeasurable!!!!"
Mary Ann Johnstone
"B-School is so above and beyond anything else I have seen out there. It has set a new high bar for what I expect from myself and in anything I consider paying for."
"Totally worth every penny. I would recommend to the amateur and the advanced student. It's fun and a complete value-add to my portfolio—both personally and professionally."
"As female business owners it can, at times, feel impossibly difficult to invest in our own success. The mere act of INVESTING in B-School pushed me to uplevel my business in a magnificent + major way."
"Without a doubt...the best investment I have ever made."
"I thought the material was fun and fresh. I felt the first week that my investment was worth it."
"I thought it was a huge investment at the time. But now I see it's worth every penny! You know what? This course is beyond money! It's about empowerment, confidence, finding people with similar drive and passion!"
"I earned back the $ from B-School in the very first program I created and launched right afterwards. That program has continued to grow and become popular, it sells out each time!!!"
"I think you get much more than you pay for as there's just so much information that can support and expand your business."
"There is SO much value in this!"
"It was perfect material for starting an online business. It had so much value after the first week I was 100% satisfied. The content is clear, precise, and entertaining. The delivery was fun, to the point, and relevant. The price was a bargain for what you received. I just want to thank you and say yes I would recommend this program to any entrepreneur."
"I can easily say I have at least 5 hours’ additional productivity per week vs. wasted spinning in circles, comparison hangovers, trying to understand the best website designs, etc."
"B-School was a great investment and helped me really think outside of the box. Just the networking and community alone are worth the money."
"I originally started B-School in 2011 and the fact that I can join in every year makes me feel so lucky. The initial investment was such a big stretch for me but the fact that I continue to get value for it year after year feels awesome!"
"I started taking myself seriously and I saw things differently. No longer was I Rae, the ill-equipped but aspiring businesswoman. I became, Rae, the world better watch out (in a good way) woman. Simply put, there was a huge shift. Priceless."
"Marie is genuine and her messages are heartfelt. She has an amazing community of strong, encouraging and supportive women. The class was well worth the money!"
"It's very applicable and simple to understand. I got incredible value for my money!"
"The value that I got from this course was incredible. I have never taken a course before where I was excited to go through the content again. I will continue to go through B-School for months to come, because there is so much value in each and every component that I know every time I look at it I will have another ‘aha, I need to do this’ moment. I think anyone who breathes, has a job, and wants to have an incredible life should take B-School. It is not just a game changer for your business, it will make your life become dreamlike in every sense of the word. I am happier, wiser, and on my way to becoming the most successful person I know."
"Initially I was nervous about spending the money. While my business still has a WAY to go, B-School was the best investment I have made. I have made my money back and it would have taken me forever to get where I am now."
"I was nervous that I wouldn't get a return on my investment. I wasn't sure if B-School would help me develop my brick-and-mortar business. I also was hesitant because B-School was my first ‘big-girl business owner purchase.' Marie addressed my concerns with her pre-B-School phone call session. I listened to how she responded to others’ questions and she was genuine, she wasn't trying to sell anything. When she answered my question, she was honest and upfront. Again, I felt comforted in that I was making the absolutely best decision for myself and my business."
"The information is priceless."
"This is my second year of B-School. That's the biggest reason why I recommend it. I can take it over and over. It only got better. It was definitely worth the money."
"The information is very valuable and worth the price tag. Lifetime access really nailed it, and the portability (being able to download the entire module so that Internet access isn't necessary at all times)."
Melissa A. Rowe
"Thanks a bunch for going over and beyond my expectations. I was confident in my decision to join B-School in week one. No question in my mind it's been the best significant investment I've made in my business."
"I was completely confident I'd get what I paid for even if I only mastered one module. The bonus training alone was worth it. And the care throughout the entire program is the highest I have experienced in the industry. I've followed, hired, and ‘studied’ many folks out there, and Marie IS the BEST of the BEST."
"I am confident that within 6 months, you can easily make your investment back (assuming you are just starting a new business!). Less if you already have established one."
"Signing up for B-School was not an easy choice for me mentally or financially yet it was a very wise investment in myself and my business. It was the BEST choice I could make for truly committing to getting my act together and worth so much more than the dollars I spent."
"I hesitated and questioned if a $2K investment for a 6-week program was worth it. It was!"
"I was a little concerned that the program would be 6 weeks of "You can do it"-type pep talks with no real techniques or guidance on HOW to do it (I'd been through 1 or 2 of those before). But I went with my gut, and with the blessings of my (male) partner, who said, this could be great for Face First Creative. It was."
"From the perspective of an online beginner, I would recommend B-School because it is a very full package at a very reasonable price!"
"I'm more focused now in regards to planning my business. Focused and passionate and committed. For me, those things are priceless even though they can't be measured."
Diane DeGiorgio (Cesa)
"I was worried about the cost. I wanted to make sure the course was worth the investment (of course it was!)."
"I never imagined I could spend $2000 on a program and feel that it was worth so much more."
"I tended to buy lots of info products and books and programs in the past and get heaps of insight and inspiration, but not really follow through on a lot. THIS WAS TOTALLY DIFFERENT!!!! All my concerns have melted away, as B-School has changed my life by helping me to change my self-concept, my limits, and the quality of my autonomy!"
"My biggest hesitation was I didn't have a clear vision for a business, but I knew I wanted to create one. The money was a little bit of a sticking point, but I had been researching traditional business schools as well as other programs, so in reality $2K was a drop in the bucket AND after the first week I quickly decided I would've paid double for the value I got out of it."
"The ROI is well over 100%. I have never experienced anything quite like it, and I have taken several courses. High quality stuff!"
"Being able to have lifetime 24/7 access to the program is invaluable. This is my third time through the program, and I learn something new every time."
"There is SO much value in this!"
"I'm definitely one to choose my learning and personal/spiritual growth opportunities wisely, but I've never had such a deep knowing about any such investment, ever."
"The B-School content and community changed my life and my business. I made back my B-School investment within a few months of B-School last year. Every investment I have made in my business since, I have made back."
Laurie T. Rosenfeld
"This program was definitely life-changing, and all I can say is a big THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. This is the best money invested ever."
"I feel a lot more productive and happier which is worth its weight in gold."
"It was such a wonderful learning experience! My investment was worth it. I will be forever grateful!"
"It will save you so much time and it's down-to-earth, funny and—it's working."
"I am working with more confidence with my writing and online activities, which I believe is saving me countless hours a week of worry and frustration."
"In the current global online market, you have one chance to make an impression. B-School was definitely worth the investment."
"I would highly recommend B-School for the amazingly rich content. As I said, the cost was a concern to me. But it was absolutely value-packed and worth the price, especially if you currently have an Internet business or know exactly what you want to do but don't know how to get there."
"I wasn't sure I'd learn anything new. I've been studying this marketing stuff for awhile...I even got my MBA and worked in marketing, so business and marketing are two areas I know a lot about. But the way you presented information and explained it was great. Gave me a whole new outlook and approach to my business."
"I consider myself a highly accomplished business executive. I've had tremendous success in my career. I teach others how to succeed in business through my consulting and coaching. Yet I can say without hesitation that I learned more than I ever could've imagined in this course. The B-School approach is fresh and unique. It's progressive and creative. It's a new take on proven business concepts that pushes business owners to step out of the box and out of their own way. B-School is the real deal. I will and I have recommended it to others. Marie is the b-o-m-b."
“I'm really, really grateful that I signed up. It's radically changed my perspective and how I look at my business. Thank you so much for EVERYTHING that was in the course. It all blew my brain and it took me days and weeks to integrate each lesson. There were so many changes to make in my business because of it. I took the course because I wanted to move from 6 figures into 7 figures—and I feel really confident that I'll be able to do that now!!!”
“Thanks to B-School, we added over $150,000 to our seven-figure business by serving an audience we haven’t been able to reach. It’s changed our game.”
“I had a thriving, fast-growing business when I signed up for B-School. I had recently appeared on The Today Show to talk about my work, was doing regular segments on Jillian Michaels' show, blogging at the Huffington Post. I also had a fast growing list and a robust business with very successful programs empowering women. But...like you, Marie, I'm a perpetual student and love learning more about how I can do my work even better. I learned a lot about my customer, made key improvements to my website, expanded my repertoire for building my list, learned a new approach to customer service, and got generally inspired and into action."
"I was scared that it would be too beginner-y and a rehash of things I've already learned. That wasn't the case at all."
"100%, would recommend B-School to someone who is open-minded, ready to make a change and surge their business forward. I would not recommend B-School to someone looking for a quick fix or branding/content to copy."
"I have learned how to look at my business and marketing in a new way."
"Even if a person has done a lot of courses on the same topics, B-School was exceptionally well structured; material was well-organized; the process of accessing the material was very user-friendly. I haven't yet come across a course where you could download the lot in one go."
"My business was already making 6 figures a year...I was worried it might be targeted too basic for me...but that was definitely not the case."
"My business is successful and still I learned so much. I took the course because I want to start an Internet-based business so I can be free to live anywhere and do my work around my life. You offer that possibility as a reality."
"It gets you to think about your business with fresh eyes."
"I started my business only a few weeks before I started B-School, so I was able to build my business with a full strategy in mind. Thanks to B-School I learned the structure of doing business online and I think that Marie saved me from making mistakes, losing money in the future and barking up the wrong marketing trees. I have friends who have started businesses without taking any classes and they wasted precious time because they didn't know what they were doing. I got a great head start, the support that I needed."
"Since my biz is brand new, I didn't have much of a list to begin with. But now I have a kickass website, and I have people joining my list...and I don't even know them! Since starting B-School, my list has grown 15x!"
"I started the RIGHT business for me instead of what I thought I should do."
Mary Ann Johnstone
"I was just starting my business so I wasn't sure if the timing was right. I was a little hesitant because I wondered if I should wait until I was more established to go through B-School. Then I realized that the timing was actually PERFECT because you would help me start off on the right foot instead of having to backtrack later!"
“It really meets you whereever you are, which is not an easy thing to do. So, it's totally valuable for the newbie and the well-established biz owner.”
“I would recommend B-School because it is really for anyone at any level. And the tools can be used over and over again. Also, the instruction is presented in a confidence-building way. If you are on the fence about being a business person, you will see that you have what it takes. If you are a business person, you will see that you have what it takes to be where you envision your life.”
“I would absolutely recommend B-School because it will help bring you out of the shell of being afraid to take that first step. It's a great starting place for entrepreneurs who want to dive into the world of online business and marketing but don't have a clue where to start.”
“I wish I had known about B-School years ago! It would have saved me time and hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.”
"From not having a clue as to how to set up an online business, I now feel like I have all the tools to do it. WOW! I may have given up before I even got started, but NOT NOW. You have shown me a seamless, low-cost, and guaranteed way to create my sacred livelihood. Deepest gratitude. You deliver what you promise and MORE! B-School is an empowering program that is genuinely supportive and gives you everything you need to succeed!”
"I did not have a business operating at the start of B-School. B-School gave me some clarity and definitely put me in the best direction to move forward."
"I'd recommend it to anyone who was in the same situation as me...a total novice with no knowledge of what is involved in running an online business."
"I definitely feel more on my way to narrowing down my business and getting serious about it. I feel like it is much more within my reach than I felt before I started the class."
"Even if you don't know what you're wanting to do, B-School will help you figure it out and get you started!"
"I'm more driven and confident. It also helped me see that everything is achievable with a careful plan, although I'm still at the very beginning of my businesses. I feel empowered and less of a shrinking flower/victim!"
"I would recommend it because it's really thorough and you can take it at whatever point you are at in business even if you haven't started business yet. It's not just about business but about how business is intertwined with your life and that sets it apart."
"Thank you, thank you, thank you for dumbing it down without making it dumb. AND not making me feel like an idiot for being such a newbie."
"[It] helps you to feel like a true entrepreneur rather than a nervous dabbler flubbing her way through trying to create an online business."
"I'm paying attention to other people's marketing strategies. I'm beginning to think more like a businesswoman."
"My hesitation was that I'm just starting to work on my business plan so I thought it might be premature for me to join but it was definitely worth it as I incorporate the things I learned in B-School into my business."
"I wish I had done it at the start of my business rather than at the end—I wouldn't have made half of the mistakes along the way that I did."
"It's great information AND fantastic support for those just starting out with their own business!"
"I don't have a business yet—still creating content. But I received clarity on where to best spend my energy and that is priceless!"
Summer Star Howard
"I feel like now I have the tools I need to properly set up my business, my website and then market effectively...I would recommend B-School because for someone like me who is just getting started, it takes the guesswork out of starting and setting up a business and then getting it off the ground."
Barbara Aleks Hecht
"I have become more confident in myself that I can actually do this. I've gotten more clarity about who I want to serve and how I want to do that."
Loes van Mierlo
"I've actually built my new website. I have NO tech/IT knowledge and I did it. I was so proud because I thought I hated everything IT, but I have to admit I've enjoyed it. I thought I would never be able to do something like that."
"I'm a yoga teacher and not the most technically savvy. I feel more in my power because of B-School because I have tools where I can do for myself what my partner was doing for me. (I even found better tools than he shared!)"
“I am not intimidated by technology as much and feel like I can take my business to the next step.”
"Greater confidence in my direction and my offering. I tend to get overwhelmed and blurry-eyed with technology. This training has made it digestible, and given me a sense that “I can do this!” I've also gone through some dramatic changes in my personal journey and relationships since this course began, supporting me to reclaim my personal practices and own my voice. Thank you!"
“WOW—I feel incredibly empowered and I know I'm going to see tremendous gains in my business once everything is implemented. I NEVER thought I would be able to build a website (I'm a technophobe), but it's almost ready to launch, and then I expect my classes (I teach trapeze) to be full full full!”
"I've tackled and accomplished tasks that I never thought I'd do. For instance, building my own website. My head is so full of technical stuff! I never knew I could cram all that in my head! I'm not a technical person and it normally makes me cranky. But I learned to slow down, sit my butt down, read and learn, then take action. I was always in a hurry to figure out the least amount to get things going."
"I've benefited from B-School in that my tech knowledge has gone through the roof; it takes me 1 minute to put up a new button or page, instead of hours agonizing over something not knowing why it won't move where I want it...now I have a brand new website that I control, 64 people subscribed by email, people reaching out to me every week saying they love my writing, 4 kickass testimonials, 2 guest posts, 3 brand new clients. And a 110% increase in confidence!"
"I built my first website by myself, only with the knowledge B-School gave me!"
"I see teaching girls about digital marketing as similar to teaching a girl to fix cars—it's not rocket science, and it's incredibly liberating to learn skills you thought were too difficult, or too technical. Even if you end up outsourcing it in the end, understanding how things work under your own hood gives you an enormous sense of ownership and power, which is invaluable."
"It was the marketing information that I didn't take in college. In fact I don't even think this type of marketing was offered when I was in school. So it makes joining the electronic/information age a lot more manageable."
"So far our list has increased by about 40%, which has been so exciting."
"My list size has doubled."
"By doing just one itty bitty strategy given in the website module, we went from having 5-10 opt-ins a week to averaging 10 a day!"
"I used the website module to convert my website and blog into 1 (something I've been wanting to do for awhile). In the month since I launched the new site, I'm seeing double the traffic of my blog and my website combined."
"I have added 300 people to my list and launched my first ebook. That launch generated more revenue in the first week than I had ever made in a month."
"My opt-ins have gone up from 10-15 a week to 54 opt-ins last week-and hello!—I don't even have anything for sale yet!"
"My opt-ins have doubled—that is definitely a direct result of the fancy website redesign (motivation and specific ideas courtesy of B-School) and the tools learned therein."
"I have grown my list from zero—honey, I never even knew you needed a list to 100 people in a month."
"My opt-in list has grown 700%."
"1. Opt-ins—up by 50%. 2. A 100% increase in people talking about my business and sharing what I have via social media."
Goddess Star Monroe
"Our website stats have gone wayyyyy up! Gained approximately 6,000 new newsletter subscribers since we implemented a big banana on our homepage."
"My #1 takeaway from B-School is how dang important my list is. I've overhauled my site and really optimized the opt-ins, and the sign-ups are rolling in! I did a relaunch of my site during B-School and added 300 folks to my list in a week."
"My list size has doubled since enrolling in B-School, I got my first sponsor for one of my teleseminars, and got a new client at my highest price point yet!"
"A lot of things have changed in my practice and my life over the past 2 years. I would say that I have easily doubled the size of my list based on Marie's teaching. And I know that I have more to come in the next few months!"
"My list went from 300 to 600 and is growing every day. I had the guts to put myself out there with a workshop and sold out 10 spots within a few days."
"My opt-ins increased by about 200%."
Shay de Silva
"My Facebook likes and my newsletter signups have doubled since B-School began."
"By October I will have added about 1,000 new customers to my list."
"My monthly traffic has also increased—it's more than doubled, actually."
"My email list grew 50 percent over the class time."
"I redesigned my opt-in form and gave my big banana a whole new look. Since the switch, my conversion rate jumped from 5% to 14%, and it's steadily growing."
"My opt-ins have definitely increased by 27%...I have also noticed more inquiries from people who were not referred by other professionals or former clients. They found my website, visited, and contacted me!"
"I launched a biweekly newsletter (just published the 3rd issue), and I'm getting new subscribers every week (!) now that I have a Hello Bar and Opt-In box (which will be upgraded this month). My list is almost to 200 without an opt-in freebie (coming soon). Before B-School, I never even had a list or any thoughts of how to create a newsletter or a community or a potential client pool."
"I have increased my website visitors and am getting twice as many comments and opt-ins as before."
"The number of subscribers to our newsletter has increased significantly (doubled) in a couple of weeks and I have saved a lot of time by being more organized."
Fabiana Zonca Nicora
"My list grew by 25% in one week."
"My list is growing daily!!!"
Goddess Star Monroe
"I had an over 94% open rate for my first newsletter after implementing tips from B-School (it was generally around 60-70% before)."
"Increased my blog visits by 50%."
Jia Ni Teo
"I saw a 50% increase in my opt-in list!"
"By just moving my email list sign-up, within a week I saw a 20% increase. I thought that was pretty sweet since it took me years to get the number I was at. Since then it has grown even more."
"I did not have an opt-in form on any of my sites and now that I do I have gained about 80 sign ups so far."
Margreet van Tricht
"I had no opt-ins before and only about 100 names on my email list (past clients). 2 weeks after B-School I have 178 people on the email list and 2-3 signing up every day."
"We have changed our opt-in rates by about 5x what it was on a daily basis."
"This class has helped tremendously by giving me a bridge between what I am passionate about and making a living from it."
"B-School really was the kick start that I needed to start my own business and I am immensely grateful. The change in my business is that it is actually a reality now, and not just a dream!"
"B-School gives you the nuts and bolts of how to take your business from dream to online, tangible reality."
"B-School helped to crystallize my ideas and has given me the framework to bring this story and brand to life, in essence you have helped bring my most longed for dream into reality."
"I've started truly believing that I can create the business that I have been talking about for a looooonnnnnggggg time now. In fact, step by step I am creating it."
Connie Z Talbott
"B-School not only helped me to finally begin starting my own company, it empowered me to perform better in my current day job."
"In my mind, it is a no-brainer for anyone who is new or not succeeding at the level that they want in business. I see many people struggle in business because they lack the marketing and sales skills to succeed. B-School provides an excellent foundation to help those people."
"I feel that I can work my business out MY WAY. If I want to work 2-4 a.m. when I can't turn my mind off, then sleep in to 10 a.m., I can do it! Restrictions of 9-5 corporate life are over for me, baby!"
"My business was a bud of an idea when I started B-School, and now it is coming into reality! The momentum of the program, the questions I was asked, the energy and support of fellow B-Schoolers, propelled me to get really clear on how to make my service to the planet into a business. I haven't stopped since B-School day one!"
Megan Pincus Kajitani
"I have gone from thinking "I hope that I can make my business a reality" to catching myself thinking "When my business is a reality." There's no question in my mind anymore. I have felt a shift in my confidence and clarity on how to get directly from where I am now to exactly where I want to be."
"You've helped me to realize that my dream is not just a dream."
"I feel confident. I believe in my dreams and I know that my future holds more for me than I can even imagine."
"I did B-School last year and FINALLY started the business I was wanting to start for 10 years!"
"Thank you so much for letting those of us with "old tapes" in our heads realize that we really can make our dreams come true, follow our passion, change the world, and make some money while doing it!"
"Anyone can benefit from B-School no matter where they are in their business journey. Marie's energy is pretty awesome for keeping you positive about things!"
"The concept of creating a super lucrative business that provides me with a sense of fulfillment and freedom and that has a positive, measurable impact on the world is no longer just a pipe dream. It's a completely attainable goal, one that I fully expect to reach. That transformation should be something that every woman gets to have."
"There are many women with fledgling Internet businesses that require a more robust plan of action. B-School can help those women become everything they wish to be, and help their businesses to soar."
"I did not have any trouble developing my ideas, being creative, and thinking of innovative ways to develop my business in my mind. What B-School gave me is a structural approach to anchor my visions and ideas in reality. I feel that I have been able to solidify a foundation that not only works, but that I actually believe in and like!"
"I've found myself more fully devoted to making this business a success. I know it can happen, I know I can make a living off of my dream. I don't think I fully 'knew' that before, even though I wanted to believe it."
"It's not just about business. It's making business work by looking at yourself and making changes where needed. It's the realization and teaching from B-School that made me realize that those huge dreams and starry goals can be achieved—BY ME!"
"I have taken more action. Instead of just imagining everything in my head, I have actually started something. What I used to think of as just a dream and something that would not work in real life, is now something I truly believe can happen for me."
"I realized that I am doing what I dreamt of as a child. I wanted to do art for a job and I AM!"
"I was able to quit my job!"
"It gives anyone who's interested in becoming an entrepreneur a step-by-step plan on how to create their dreams!"
"Taking the course was what I needed to step into being serious about the dream/ideas rolling around in my head!"
"The most important thing for me is that I was able to integrate all my passions in one business: as a system engineer, actress, dancer, and Feldenkrais practitioner, to have an online business and a community and to make videos every week is just like a dream come true."
"I am much more confident in myself and what I offer. Before I would always second-guess myself and feel I wasn't good enough. What really helped me was Marie's teaching on turning your negative thoughts around. Her constant encouragement made me feel important and worthy of living my dream."
"I have a lot more direction with my business and feel reenergized to make my dream come true."
"It has opened up my VISION and allowed me to know that it is POSSIBLE to live my dreams and create my own business that I LOVE."
Jia Ni Teo
"Beforehand I had a vague someday of a business, not even with a specific idea, and now I have a business, so I'm a 0-100% increase."
"Hard results = building my brand and taking myself and my music career seriously (as opposed to waiting for it to happen TO me, which most musicians do). I just had my first major music video picked up on NPR."
"I am an incredibly curious person and brainstormer at heart, but have always had problems with executing the technical. In addition, because I am so interested in so many things, the Internet has become my lens to online business opportunities and beyond, but it can be a bit overwhelming. Marie has helped me drill down and focus on the tasks at hand I need to accomplish the steps I must do to achieve my dreams."
"B-School has actually inspired me because I now know that although I have to go back into full-time work to fulfill my dreams, I WILL do what it takes, and Marie has given me some tools to be able to do that."
"I am clearer on what I do and the gifts I bring to the table. And I feel as though it is all possible...that dream for the life I see myself living. B-School is the foundation to make that dream a reality."
Suzanne Ragan Lentz
"It is a fantastic program that can transform the life of anyone who wants to turn their dreams and skills into an amazing business suited to their needs."
"I recommend B-School to any entrepreneur who is ready to take the next set of steps to make their ideas and transform them into a fulfilling business!"
"I would've paid $2,000 just for the community alone."
"The women you meet through B-School alone are worth the investment. I feel like I am connected to a powerhouse of brilliant women who have helped me raise the bar for my business."
"The integrity of people that enroll and are active within the groups is the BOMB."
"I feel as though I'm part of a supportive community rather than all alone. I’m no longer the odd one out among my friends."
"My community has expanded by leaps and bounds—a completely unexpected result of B-School. I suddenly have an audaciously vibrant, unconditionally supportive network of women, some of whom I've now met in person and who've become valued friends. I wasn't even aware how much I craved that and missed that until it appeared. Every day, these women blow my mind."
"B-School is a culture. I can travel anywhere in the world and meet a woman who is doing great things for this world. It's a hidden bonus of this program."
"I've met some fantastic people in real life and online that I would never have met in such numbers were it not for B-School...it is one of the best gatherings of like-minded, strong, and kickass women (and men) there is out there."
"The community! It's amazing—the best networking that I've ever experienced (and I pay $1,000s annually to belong to networking groups)."
"I don't feel alone anymore."
"I love watching women grow in this group. Revelation after revelation."
"The community...it is really the most amazing group of women I have ever met—like every single one. And I actually know a lot of amazing women. But the sheer number of awesomeness still blows me away. Marie, you really foster this by being present within the community that you have created."
Suzanne Ragan Lentz
"B-School as a whole is outstanding, but the Facebook community hands down is the best part of the whole enchilada! The caliber of women you have attracted and continue to attract, Marie, is outstanding!"
“Best program I've ever taken in terms of real value, results, how-to, and so so so entertaining and enjoyable and inspiring and motivating.”
“I've connected to an amazing group of passionate, driven entrepreneurs—absolutely priceless. Overall, B-School has given me clarity and momentum, and a clear direction to move forward with my business. I think for anyone growing a business, online or offline, this course is mandatory. The material is presented in clear, actionable, doable chunks. And the results are cumulative—the more you practice these timeless principles, the better you and your biz get. And the B-School community is the most loving, supportive, and brilliant I've ever experienced.”
"Marie is my Business Guide Guru! Marie's bottom line is simple, sincere, and sassy! I gained a priceless circle of inspiring women, friends, and resources through B-School. I have cultivated invaluable relationships with like-minded individuals, connected with inspiring leaders + influencers, and gained rare solid knowledge, resources + tools, ultimately allowing me to implement methods and take real steps towards launching my business!"
Leona Victoria Mizrahi
“It has helped me get over that career isolation I've felt at times being a stay-at-home mom entrepreneur. I came into the course feeling like (while I was beyond grateful for the growth) that my business was getting more and more difficult to keep a handle on as it grew. B-School helped me get crystal clear on what is important and what is distraction and reminded me that simple and effective is the way to go and gave me tools to figure that out in every area of my work. Simply put, it works and it works on so many levels that it will be a resource I will continue to return to as it helps me get farther and bigger along my path. Timeless principles that cut the confusion and help you make the most of your time so you can live a kickass life and rock an amazing business at the same time. Honestly Marie, I have to say your authenticity and deep passionate desire to love, support, and build up every woman in the course was so amazingly apparent. You are such an incredible inspiration to me.”
"B-School is the best place to have timeless marketing principles translated for the female entrepreneur in a fun, easily digestible way. Plus, as a business owner, there isn't always a space to get support. Yes, a spouse or friends can “be there” for me, but at the end of the day having like-minded and other successful women around doing kickass stuff is the best! Keeps me inspired and on my toes all while having fun. Thank you!"
“Great for ideas, community, and momentum. Totally worth the investment.”
“I loved being in a worldwide campus with ladies who are utilizing business to achieve their ideal lifestyle.”
"I love the comments area and the Facebook group because it's very helpful to me to be able to see exactly how my peers are doing in their journey, see what they're struggling with, what shortcuts they've found and ultimately reassure myself that everyone is going through the same things that I am."
"I have gained sisterhood with fellow B-Schoolers."
"I do not feel alone in my dream of doing my own thing my own way. I am now connected to a big group of women who are just like me and that is breathtaking."
"Since I enrolled my life totally changed. In the beginning of this year I moved out of my home country to a country 10,000 km away; I was absolutely depressed, lonely, and lost. B-School made me feel like part of something big, I realized I wasn't the only one suffering with building my business from scratch and totally changing my life."
"I have very much enjoyed the community and being able to bounce ideas off one another. The feedback I received was incredibly valuable in being able to work on my rebranding and make changes to my website that I hadn't even thought of before—and as a web developer I've seen a lot of sites and know a lot about user interface."
"I no longer feel lost or alone. I have a set of amazing resources and tools, and an amazing community to reach out to."
"After being immersed in hours of office calls, B-School Babes Facebook pages, and even meeting up with local B-School Babes in person, the idea of entrepreneurship got completely normalized in my mind. I had never met so many female entrepreneurs in my life, and it was very empowering. It was great that there were many B-School alumni who were head of the game in the group, as it is not like the blind leading the blind like some mastermind group could be. This ‘If she can do it, I can do it’ factor was huge."
"I feel motivated, energized and supported by the amazing babes on Facebook...the group of wonderful women that you connect with is priceless."
"I have a wonderful network of businesswomen who I feel I can connect with to ask for anything I could possibly need."
"The community helped me shift the way I think about business, and I have been making changes in the structure, focus, and layout of my biz and what I will be offering with it. I met and interacted with some incredible women I wouldn't have otherwise met."
Lisa Van Ahn
"I have so many more connections with awe-inspiring women who, like me, are happy to share their skills."
"I think the best thing is the network that I now have access to. Just being able to ask questions and getting information from those with experience in areas specific to me has been really valuable."
"I have never ever in my entire life felt as if I was truly among peers, all goal-oriented and amazingly willing to share their talents to help each other."
"The amazing B-School community that formed online has been invaluable to me professionally and personally as well."
Laurie T. Rosenfeld
"The feature that was lovely was the Facebook group. Connecting with other women in the same spot, with dreams and ambition and some incredible talents and skills was amazing! I had no idea the things people could help me with that I never thought to ask for help with before."
"The community is awesome, I have connected with women from all over the world. No question was a silly question, there is always someone to bounce ideas off of."
"I am getting more confident in myself and my ability. Being part of this amazing community or tribe with like-minded people makes me think there is nothing wrong with me."
"I've taken online courses before (nothing like B-School admittedly) and although I've made connections with classmates, the B-Schoolers are different. I feel like they're my true friends. Touching souls. Close friends. Mentors. Partners."
"B-School helps you to realize that you are not alone—there are other women out there learning about running businesses. Knowing this helps to take away the fear of 'not getting it right or failing' and helps you to understand that in order to do this, you have to get out there and get started, build your knowledge, connect with others, and learn as you go."
Clare J Fitzgerald
"One of the priceless benefits a B-Schooler receives is the support from the Facebook private group."
"The network alone is invaluable! Community is everything, and although I have awesome friends and mentors, I needed a kick in the ass to help me see that I don't have to work as hard as I am to get what I want. B-School has given me the tools to help me succeed without running myself into the ground. I am so very grateful for that!"
"I have made some deep connections with the other NZ B-Schoolers (a gorgeous bunch), and my FB friends list has soared, so now a trip to FB is a chance to be revived spiritually and feel connected with a global community of changemakers."
"The community and the people I met totally rocked. Also, it's great to know that if I have a question about ANYTHING there is someone here to ask."
"I think it is highly empowering for women to see and interact with other successful women."
"Connecting to this community has been incredibly heartwarming and inspiring."
"I especially LOVE the FB private group. The connections with those women and all the info I've learned through them is priceless."
"I was able to connect with some awesome Atlanta B-Schoolers. I love my weekly accountability group. The 3 of us are accountability partners but also becoming good friends."
"The community of women that are part of the program is really what kept me going through it and assimilating the concepts Marie put forward."
“It was an exciting experience not only for the things I've learned, but also because of the crazy positive and supportive people I've met along the way. I had the luck to meet some of the London people in person and it was great fun. I thought it was amazing and inspiring to see all the many ideas people had, how different our stories were but that we all shared the same passion and commitment.”
"Not only did I find a group of women that I hold myself accountable to but I found a place I can share the joys and lows of doing a business that is true to who I am."
"Joining such a kickass community full of entrepreneurs made me feel part of something AMAZING and strong and that, finally, I wasn't alone anymore."
Goddess Star Monroe
"The COMMUNITY is amazing...the fact that we are all in this together and the feedback/insights from the group are fantastic."
"The Facebook support group was so helpful, supportive, and safe."
"I feel like a new person and really—I feel like I have made friends in this community for life!"
"The knowledge gained is awesome, but the community of people in the program are some of the most supportive and encouraging people I have ever had the pleasure of being associated with. That alone makes this program worth every penny 100 times over!"
Anne Massey Walter
"The community is immense. It's worth its weight in gold."
"I also found the community aspect more fulfilling and helpful than expected. The women this program attracts are incredibly special. I always felt supported."
"Encouragement in the B-School Facebook group was absolutely awesome. The golden nuggets that came from being involved with so many different women, businesses, and ideas was fabulous."
"I connected with a group of local B-Schoolers, and we now meet up a couple times a month, which is great for accountability and support."
"The community and resources that have come from the program have been invaluable."
"I've never seen so many strong, empowering women lifting each other up and celebrating each others success before. Everyone is so open, so supportive, and so inspiring. Being surrounded by such magnificent role models has made me a better person."
"The community was amazing. I'm still in regular contact with so many women I ‘met’ through the program. I think it's great that you allow grads to come back to the program every year and connect with the ‘freshmen’ in your community."
"I love the community that I am part of now. I love that due to your bringing everyone together, I was able to create a Mastermind group from the B-School community in Austin...thank you for that! We plan to meet twice per month for at least 6 months, but hopefully longer. So far we have had 3 meetings and they have been great!"
"My connections in B-School I will cherish forever."
"I've made so many wonderful connections through B-School. Having a group of people who get what it's like to be an entrepreneur has been amazing."
Shay de Silva
"I've met lots of like-minded folks from the B-School community that I haven't even begun to fully engage with! It's been incredibly supportive and I've learned about so many other things that I haven't been exposed to before."
"The community is invaluable."
"I've been connected to women who are fast becoming my forever friends. They make me feel strong and unstoppable."
"The B-School community has reassured me that I have a place in the world, and that my dreams are not to be laughed at but to be chased."
"I've met some great fellow B-School students (both online and in person), and we've been pushing each other to be accountable to reach our goals and progress our businesses."
"The enthusiasm, support and inspiration this group provides cannot be undervalued, I have never been around such a talented, amazing, inspiring and hustling group of women before."
"I love the fact that B-School allowed me to be fully myself and exposed me to a whole community of women and men that were taking inspired action every day. I didn't even know there were people out there LIKE me. That I wasn't some entrepreneurial freak, LOL! Being with other people and having a community like this was beyond valuable, because I was am the only person in my life that had this mindset."
"Great, thorough education with supportive community."
"I have connected with so many people and have seen a whole new side of life that I never knew existed! I am now part of a Mastermind Group of B-Schoolers from Austin, TX. We meet every other week and support/hold each other accountable for different things within our business."
"I found a biz partner in the B-School community (something I NEVER thought would happen) and now we're launching an exciting new event together this week."
"The B-School Facebook community has been amazing, an instant group of friends and mentors."
"The forums have been invaluable."
"I have an adorable, irreplaceable B-School mastermind group in Christchurch, NZ. There are 4 of us and we meet fortnightly. They are my biz soul mates and I would never have met them without B-School."
"My business has grown tremendously with the help of other women. I've been brought to tears with the support I've received—they can finally SEE me, and they feel connected to my message. They see the *spark* as well, and it's easy to promote one another. This has been one of my favorite parts."
"The community aspect is also great and people have been so supportive and generous."
"The community of women is amazing. So many women willing to help each other out during bumps in implementation. Amazing to see and be a part of something this big."
"The community is THE best and bold, sexy and very outspoken."
Deborah Skye King
"The community of women is so inspiring!"
"The community is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!"
"I feel more connected and engaged with a community of like-minded women in my life."
"The community is priceless!"
"The biggest change is having a sense of community. I felt very alone in running my business, as the only person I know who is working from home and running a lifestyle business. Meeting the other NZ B-School Babes has been INVALUABLE, and being able to share what we have learned together and help each other put it into action has made a big difference to our results."
"The amazing friendships/biz relationships that have come out of B-School are just beyond amazing!"
"I have a deep connection with smart women entrepreneurs as a direct result of B-School—I have a tribe of smart fempreneurs that is dynamite."
"The Facebook babes saved my ass many times with loving support."
Mary Ann Johnstone
"I feel more confident. And I feel my inner thinking and plans have been validated by the class and its community."
"The relationships I have built through B-School and generally in being a part of this community are by far the greatest unexpected benefits I have had ala B-School."
"The biggest change has been how much easier it seems to get my business out into the world. I'm approached every week by new people interested in networking, interviewing me, or collaborating. This is great, because with 2-year-old twins (and a third on the way) I really prefer to stay home and don't travel often for networking. B-School has such an incredible community, and I'm thrilled to be connected with so many amazing women!"
"I have connected with a HUGE new network that I have never had access to before. So grateful for it."
"I've taken action—not just talked about it, made lists of what I need to do, etc. I've actually done it. That feels good."
"I feel more motivated than ever, because I actually have a tangible action plan for the creation of a business and life that I love...I have an action plan to carry me through 2013 with a plan that will move me into 6 figures by the following year."
"Now I have a plan of what needs to be done. Before, I knew I could do it—start a business, do a website, etc. —but I had no idea where to start or what steps to really follow. With B-School, I've got a plan and clear objectives for things I need to do."
"It's a GET-IT-DONE program, not just a learning program."
"Even though I work at home I now have a highly scheduled day, as if I were going to the "office"—but even more efficient—and thus get a lot more done and feel so much better about my little successes."
"I have a better focus on where I am going and how I am going to get there. Before I had a vague idea and absolutely no idea how to get there!"
"I have started projects that I have put off for ages because I've been waiting for 'the right time'!"
"I was flailing. I didn't know what to focus my time on or how to grow. I'm grateful that B-School gave me a to-do list that will get me results—instead of keeping me running in circles."
"I feel like I have actionable steps I can take to improve my business. I feel like I finally have the "now what" answers. I have a blog set up, now what? I have an email list, now what? I have a product idea, now what? It all just doesn't seem nearly as daunting anymore which makes me feel more confident that it's going to get better/easier/more fun."
"I have changed my habit of procrastination, and begun to take immediate action and get things done one step at a time. I understand more clearly that because I may not know how to do something, doesn't mean it can't be done...I have a whole community of B-Schoolers that offer advice on how to get it done. Now I figure ‘it’ out and make it happen."
"The biggest change I've noticed is that now I just go for it. I used to wait until everything was perfect. Now I take action and improve along the way."
Shay de Silva
"Marie's tone is positive and encouraging with just enough butt-kicking to make you take action."
"I had tons of ideas but didn't know what to do with them. Now I do."
“Don't go to B-School if you're not a woman of action. You'll get so excited you might accidentally market yourself into a million bucks.”
“It is a combination of practical, ‘do-this-now’ business advice, and loving yet ass-kicking coaching. There is simply not a day that goes by that I don't think about or implement something I learned in B-School. This course is the game changer in my business.”
“They delivered everything they promised, and tons more. B-School enlightens you. It gives you a very structured, step-by-step way to grow your business. It demystifies marketing and the customer experience. And, perhaps most critical, it's damn fun. B-School has been one of the best investments I've made in myself and in my business.”
“The feature that I believe is the most valuable is the amazingly down-to-earth, real world advice! So specific (i.e., how to enchant bigwigs, WordPress info, etc.). No theories! All proven actions!”
“I have an action plan to solve every issue I face in business. I had wasted so much time trying to piece together a solution from 100 different sources, but never felt like I actually completely solved anything. Now I have a step-by-step approach that I immediately implemented.”
“I finally have a road map. I know what to do, why I'm going to do it and how I'm going to get it done. I still have a lot of work ahead of me, but I know where I'm going. B-School gave me the framework I needed to make my decisions with clarity and strength. There is so much information out there, but B-School offers what works with clarity and with style. The energy is off the wall! It's the perfect mix of sound business principles and mojo marketing techniques, with a spiritual backbone that keeps it authentic and real.”
“I'm in ACTION mode. I implemented EVERYTHING. The money is rolling in, my ideas are shining, my heart is happy. It's detailed, loaded with brilliance. And like seriously, you kick college in the ASS with this stuff! It takes people 4 years to learn this stuff. You pushed me through it in 8 weeks and I will forever be grateful.”
“Lifetime access was HUGE in overcoming my hesitations. But what I am most impressed by is the program's integrity and Marie's generosity. I never felt like anything was being withheld or that she was just in it for the $$ but was committed to B-Schooler's success. I have an undergrad degree in Finance and a substantial business background and found tremendous value in B-School. The material is structured and divided into digestible and applicable portions. And it's fun!”
"It is so well-rounded and gives you actionable steps to take. If I hadn't taken B-School I would still be standing still. Finally after a year and a half of struggling to focus, I am moving forward (and fast) in the right direction."
“One of the biggest lessons I have learned (besides the all-important business info, which can I say is exceptional beyond words) is that I am not alone. OMG! Do the course! You will never ever regret taking this course. In fact, if you do not take this course, then you are doing your customers a disservice!”
“I think this is the best business education anyone can purchase, because it puts it in real-world, practical, what-needs-to-get-done terms (that work!). What you are teaching is much more valuable than a 2-4 year ‘business’ school. You teach from ‘the trenches,’ from what is really happening right now in the marketing industry, the way it affects us as business people, not in hypotheticals, and you haven't been afraid to help us with technical specifics (which is where I see most programs fall down).”
“B-School has given me confidence and actionable training that brings results immediately after implementing.”
“B-School was just the right kick-in-the-butt motivation I needed to SEE what was right in front of me the whole time and actually START what I needed to get done to move forward.”
“It's great not only for the education but for the motivation to make your dreams happen and get paid for them. There's a lot of expensive crap out there when it comes to this kind of product. There are a lot of hypers and scammers and people who are just interested in growing their personal wealth. I really appreciate your sincere desire to help women entrepreneurs by giving them the tools they need to succeed. And I appreciate you letting the occasional guy like me sit in to benefit, as well."
“I launched my company, my website, and my first online coaching program all through B-School.”
"I feel much more confident about launching a new business. I feel as though I know exactly what to do to make it sing!! I'm excited about the possibilities and that's been a wonderful change instead of feeling overwhelmed by it all."
“I have a very clear vision, a way to reach it. But most important is the optimism that helps me to convince my inner critic to shut up & f*** off.”
“It's the best thing I've ever done for business. I was 'just starting' and B-School gave me a solid foundation to get started in the 'right' direction. You saved me a lot of painstaking hours of research, frustration, and confusion.”
“I had never taken a business class before, so all of this content has been new to me. Not only am I seeing more business and making more $, I'm also finding myself feeling much more in control of my choices. Meaning, I'm not just throwing a bunch of stuff out there and seeing what sticks. I now have an informed plan of attack and feel empowered by it. I am up-leveling my business! And the best part is that people are noticing and sharing that observation with me. Pretty sweet! To date, B-School is the #1 tool I've found for building my business.”
"I know EXACTLY how to make money, do what I need to online, market my self/products, and take care of clients. I no longer feel caged in uncertainty. I feel totally validated and supported in my creativity. I won't waste years signing up for free shit and googling ‘how to's’ trying to self teach and figure out business. I have focus!! I know HOW to do what I have dreamed of doing. That is SO powerful. I know who I am. I am now clear on who I am and what I'm about. I have discovered myself through B-School. I now have confidence AND certainty about my business and myself. I feel safe to move forward, I am no longer stuck. Any serious woman entrepreneur that is passionate about thriving in her business has to go through B-School."
“I have such a great understanding of the mechanics and foundation required to run a successful business. I've always been a big vision gal, running from details. But I can really see the value and blessing in the details now. I'm excited to dig in.”
“I love how your modules are packed with valuable information each week, and it pertains to so many different types of businesses. The content of B-School is fresh, fun, edgy, and so incredibly relevant.”
“The amount of information obtained from this course is crazy and invaluable.”
“The idea of ‘business’ is so drab and uninspiring. Even though I've sought out and learned a ton through business courses over the past 4 years, I still would complain how marketing and business are my big weakness. B-School made me realize that it doesn't have to be that hard. The classes were fun, the group was super supportive and loving, and the info was inspiring!”
“I've found how passionate, thrilling, and smart women can be in their marketing. I've been long considering how I might be of service to the world, and through the B-School material, I might actually find my own dance. I would absolutely recommend B-School for the TRUTH that you are given throughout the course. You can't find that in ‘real’ (I use the term loosely) business school.”
"More focused. Taking opportunities more seriously. Having a blueprint ready to work through."
"Marie has a way of teaching that makes it easy to understand what steps to take, and to take action."
"I'm making a living doing what I love. Since B-School I've revamped my website, launched my first online course, created my first home-study program, signed with a speaker's agency for the college circuit and am touring the bodyheart campaign in four cities. It's all pretty incredible."
"I have learned that I am capable of following through on tasks; it just takes the right scheduling and choosing to do things that move me closer and closer to my final goal."
"I have gone from having a vague idea of what I wanted to do to creating a new business name and website, clarifying my concept, and optimizing my site for conversions. I created a freebie pdf product to give to my subscribers, generated hundreds of potential ideas of which I am sure at least some are really amazing with potential, started a blog and newsletter, provided many free clarity sessions for fellow Babes with amazing results and insight, got my first coaching client, and feel so much more empowered in my life and business. All in TWO MONTHS."
"My business partner and I are getting more serious about 'scheduling in' and blocking off chunks of time to complete projects. We also are getting more realistic about how much we can/should be able to complete in a certain timeframe."
"Full of ideas, narrowing down my very full mind, more organized, better sense of most crucial ‘next step’ instead of having 25 next steps. More realistic approach towards what was previously frustrating me...allowing this to take the time it takes. I am calmer."
"I didn't even have a web domain purchased when I started B-School, but I had a plan to be launched by September 1. I don't think there is any way I could have accomplished that goal without B-School (or spending a gajillion dollars on a consultant). B-School kept me on track and gave me the support I needed to know that I can do this and do it well."
"I am [now] serious about scheduling. Up until now, I scheduled our video productions easily but not my day to day and my life. Now that everything is not in my exhausted head I feel lighter, if that makes sense. And I don't miss out on exercise and meditation as much as before. Health and happiness need to exist within the biz, not in spite of it."
"I feel much more expansive about what I can get done in business—I also have been booking more acting work and have a much better idea about marketing and what I can do to shine. I have other business ideas as well that are now starting to crystallize."
"I know what my target is and the steps needed to get there."
"I see myself as becoming more passionate, more confident and more willing to take risks. I also feel much more motivated by the course!"
"I've made a plan. I'm ticking things off my list. I'm beginning to give the energy to my website and online business that I wasn't."
"It made the super scary stuff (like sales and marketing) seem so easy, and the fact that it was so action-oriented was genius. Within a month I have done a million percent (I am not even exaggerating!) more for my business than I have in the past two years. Before B-School, I floated around reading various tips and trying to implement various ideas but was unsure of how it all went together to make my business successful. I now have a literal step-by-step action plan that I can look to over and over and over again to rock it out, sell like crazy, make money, and change the world."
I have benefitted by taking action, whereas before I wasn't really. I had an idea that I wanted to start a business, but nothing to really show for it. I am still working on creating my businessm but I now have direction and specific goals.
"I have found even more determination than I have ever had (and as a VERY ambitious person, I didn't even think that was possible!). B-School helped me see that my goals WERE totally possible, it is a matter of proper structure and action."
"B-School helped me to change it up, and I'm doing what I really love despite having fought it for 20 years! I’ve written 5 blog posts—one a week and every Tuesday without fail. I've created a new site with a new design. I have a growing email list and Facebook following. I have paying clients and am getting more and more inquiries every day. I feel totally on FIRE and am loving every moment of it!"
"B-School has also helped me to finally make the decision to build a product I have been developing for over two years. No more wasting time, no more planning—just do it and tweak along the way! JUMP in and enjoy the ride!!"
"B-School is helping me get clear and be more productive."
"B-School simply saved my business. It was going to tank if I didn't make some real, calculated, and intelligent changes."
"I’m more motivated to do this right and taking bolder moves in my business, i.e., going to follow my passion in a bigger way...not just do what seems like the market will bear."
"I always saw myself as a chronic organizer, but I realized I wasn't even as organized as I needed to be. I have learned how to create more white space for my thoughts, creativity, and interests."
"I get things done now. Even if it's something small, I now have the stamina and hard focus to accomplish one to two important tasks each day (learning that doing too many tasks, which I tried before, would drive me crazy). I honor the commitments that I make to myself, from abiding by the Follow-Through Formula rather than just moving the deadline further and further ahead."
"Because of B-School I have now conceived and am about to launch my first product. B-School helped me to envision the steps to my continuing success so I don't feel as though launching one product is the end. I can go back to the material over and over as my business reaches the next stages."
"I have a plan and a great network of women entrepreneurs. I am inspired and believe I can grow my business to well over 6 figures and serve way more people than I'm reaching now."
"The start before you're ready’ practice has really helped me to get past the initial stages of developing my idea."
"It was the catalyst I needed to make some major shifts in my biz."
Jennifer Nesbit Holt
"I'M IN GO MODE! Moving forward with clarity and verve! Kabam! Much clearer about how to take what I've been doing offline and do it online—relieved and in execution mode!"
"You are encouraged and supported in finding your voice and taking action."
"I feel more focused and productive."
"My productivity rate has nearly tripled because I stay on task, honor my commitments, and get things done."
"The biggest thing that I noticed was an increase in the confidence in myself to get a whole hell of a lot of things done once I actually commit to doing it. Not just think about doing it. Or how I need/should do it."
"I had the confidence to move out of Boston after living there 8 years to pursue my dreams and passions. I'm down to a 20-hour client load, am financially comfortable, and have space for business development for my new project! And I'm only 26! How cool is that?! I have personally gone from overwhelm to feeling like I have space in my life to confidently follow the path I desire."
"I am more organized and able to manage my time better, and my ideas are clearer."
"I'm more organized. I'm not a natural systems persons, but B-School has provided me with a number of systems that support my business; e.g., a scheduling system and editorial calendar."
"I have a far clearer picture of who I want to be in business. I also have a greater vision of what I want my business to be and a more concrete plan to get there."
"I have a clear vision of myself as a legitimate entrepreneur; I no longer shy away from that identification. I'm EXCITED when I wake up, my dreams are filled with all the action steps I'm taking and lining up, I count down the hours until the windows of time I can leap into the next task for getting my business up and running."
"I'm more focused and clear on what I want in regards to my business. I feel organized and ready to take on anything."
"I've been saying yes to more things and no to more things! And it feels great! I used to be bogged down with hemming and hawing, saying yes to things I really didn't want to do, but felt like I needed to because I felt bad or needed money. And saying no to things I didn't feel ready for, but that I want to do 'someday.'"
"B-School has helped me to narrow down and prioritize my ideas, giving better focus on what steps I should take now to move forward."
"[I'm] more focused on what I want from my business and how to get it."
"I've learned to use my time more efficiently and with more productive results. I spend less time in unproductive 'busyness' per week, and more time on doing things that will generate future revenue. I probably work less on the business and get more done by about three hours a week."
"I'm definitely more organized, determined, and focused."
"I have a much clearer vision and was able to finally get my goals to something that would make me happy."
"B-School has given me the confidence to be proactive about my business...I feel that I have an actionable plan of specific steps to improve my business."
"I have seen an increase in determination and wanting to be in the forefront of my business."
Deborah Skye King
"It has kept me accountable with getting things done."
"I've learned that even taking small actions is beneficial. The key is ACTION. When it comes to my entrepreneurial self, I can be a dreamer...RHH B-School helped me to be a doer."
"I have saved countless hours in productivity towards website completion and goals, marketing, and sales letter approach with what I learned in B-School."
"My ambition has skyrocketed."
"I'm much more organized. I schedule as much as I can into my calendar. My follow through is significantly better in all areas of my life, including working out, so I've lost weight through this process. I've realized there are more hours in the day than I previously told myself there were so I'm much more productive and efficient with my time."
"[I] have definite concrete steps and a plan on how to get my business out into the world."
"The changes I have seen so far are greater confidence to create what I want and a stronger sense of 'just do it.'"
"Since B-School I got much more clear on what will work and what won’t, and where to invest my time in and whatnot."
"I pay more attention to things at the top of my priority list instead of being so scattered."
"The biggest change I've seen is my ability to organize my thoughts. I now have a process of putting my ideas into action."
"It is a great course even for people who are just starting out + makes you want to get off your butt and take action!"
"I've increased my efficiency probably tenfold. I'm planning my days better, trying really hard to stick to it, and am seeing a lot of progress."
"I am also much less sitting in fantasy and fear, but am taking regular action that is moving me forward to where I want to go."
"Now I don't have ideas but clear goals. I know exactly what I want to do and how to do it."
"I've gotten things done that I've been wanting to forever (website up), and got it done the right way!"
"I now think of myself as a Go Pro kinda girl. I am creating products with a view to how I will place them in the market and how I will promote them to my audience. I am now feeling more confident in my ability to learn the technical stuff and have the confidence that it is all doable if I give myself the time and muster up the courage to have a go."
"B-School got me off my ass and active, instead of waiting around for something to happen. B-School has been a life-changing experience, as I'm changing the way I approach situations and deal with them, and I'm sure I'm still only at the beginning of these transformations."
"The content is great, but it is the way you get people to take action that really sets this course apart."
"I actually followed through on a few things that I've been meaning to do for months, even years. Such as getting a landing page up, signing up for a weber."
"I am much more confident, focused and creative than I have ever been. Having tools to focus my mind around my business freed up a part of my brain and allowed the creativity to come flowing back in spades."
"I no longer have the feeling of isolation."
Anne Massey Walter
"I just feel that all the pieces in my head have fallen into the right places. I see the future clearly and I know exactly what steps to take. I had come far with my business before B-School, but everything was by experimenting, because I really did not know what I was doing... lol. Taking B-School answered all my questions and helped me decide what to delete, what to delegate, and what to prioritize."
"I feel more clear about where I am heading and how to get there."
"I finally feel like I have a clearer vision of what I want my biz and life to look like and a system to create it...that's huge."
"It is a lot easier for me to put everything together + communicate + launch my work, because now I know exactly who my customer is and what they want. No more feeling lost and confused and not sure where to start."
"It is a great way to take all the million ideas and options and focus in on what you should actually be doing and why."
"It may be overwhelming, but if you do it...step by step...things will start to change and REAL results will come of it."
"I have found much more clarity on how to get started, I don't have to wait now until I figure every step out. I have become much more in tune with entrepreneurship as a woman, as a mom. I can see which lines I must cross now, what limits I need to set up for myself as to a better balanced life, and what things I can work on later. I am smiling more and, most importantly, I have begun proudly explaining what I do, as opposed to shying away at the question."
"It will help you clarify what you want from not only your business, but also your life. It will set you on a clear and confident path. I always thought that a successful business meant a huge staff and offices in NYC! In one of the B-School exercises, I surprised myself by learning that I didn't actually want a whole lot more from my business—and life—than what I have now: 5 employees, my laptop, and the ability to work from anywhere in the world."
Laura Pepper Wu
"Because of B-School I'm clear on the direction of my life/business and I'm unapologetic about going after an abundant and rich lifestyle full of loving people and lots of MONEY."
"If you need to get some clarity within your business join B-School. It will clearly show you step by step the areas you need to work on to start to build a successful business in whatever field you're in."
"I feel like I have a renewed focus and passion for my business."
"My business has been in a transition so I have received more clarity about the business model that I feel would be sustainable, exciting and inspiring for me to move into. With this clarity, I feel more confident and have been taking action towards the new direction."
"I feel as if I have a clear vision of what I want my business to be...but more importantly, I have a clearer vision of who I am and what I am all about. I feel as if I have the tools to make my business happen and to really be successful. I have more trust in myself and my vision."
"I have so much more clarity. I will be doing a lot of technique videos for my new scrapbook line. Before B-School, it made me nervous, I worried about really sucking at it, blah, blah. Now I know exactly what I want to do, and it is something no one else is doing. No more nerves!"
Mary Ellen Geitz
"B-School has helped my move from stuck and overwhelmed into starting a growing business that I know in my heart and spirit can change the world and create a wonderful movement of Emotionally Liberated Cadets."
"I have become more focused and motivated. I have clearly set goals for the future of my business."
"I am a lot more confident and clear on what it is that I need to do with my business."
"I feel alive again. I soooo look forward to getting up every day and moving myself and my business one step closer to my goals. My goals themselves have become clear and real and attainable in ways I could not have imagined. I'm driven and determined and crystal clear on what stands between me and the life I require."
"Before B-School I was unfocused. One day I worried I needed to do SEO, another day it was email marketing...B-School allowed me to see the entire framework in action, and also helped me realize that I can work on things one at a time."
"I quit my full-time job before B-School was even over. Not because I made a big sale, but because the clarity I've gained has propelled me forward in a way I never knew was possible. The biggest thing that was holding me back from making my business successful was the time and negative energy I had invested in my full-time job. Since leaving, I have been inspired on a daily basis. Ideas just come to me and I have to jot them down in my phone or on sticky notes. It's like I've freed up all this mental space that I can now entirely devote to my passion to heal the world."
"I’m much more sure of who my market is, and a lot more confident in being able to deliver what they want. And to be able to do it in a way that is authentic to me, and not salesy or slimey."
"Someone who is serious about getting clarity in their business and having a step-by-step coach with take-away materials would benefit tremendously."
"I have gained clarity and focus in my business. I am more confident in my pricing and my value as a businesswoman."
"I'm SO much more confident in myself and in my biz. I don't flail like I used to with my biz (let's try this, oh I'm tired of this, let's try that, but wait what should I try, etc.). Something turned on after B-School (thank you!) and I finally developed a laser focus."
"I now almost understand when my husband talks geeky when changing things in WordPress! I believe this is a huge hindrance for most ladies because most of us feel a little incompetent when it comes to technological stuff. The fog in my brain is slowly disappearing now...and it is a wonderful feeling!!!"
Fabiana Zonca Nicora
"I've got more direction and clarity on where I want to go with my services. I'm also finding that I hesitate less to get outside of the mold that has been created on the travel industry. Everyone is offering their products/services in the same format and I am getting ready to shake things up!"
"I no longer feel like I'm groping around in the dark for a way forward. I am a smart person and I've built my business from scratch by myself, but I don't have a marketing background and I now feel armed with knowledge on how to move forward."
"Since doing B-School I have noticed that I have more clarity around the structure of my business. I have confidence in being uniquely me. I have confidence in my abilities and my business idea."
"I have a much better idea of who my customer is, why I am doing what I'm doing, and what my goals are. I also have more confidence that I can accomplish anything I decide I want to do."
"I am more focused, I stopped spending time on Facebook instead of working and I feel more confident in being able to make it as a photographer entrepreneur."
"B-School helped me to clarify exactly what I wanted from my business, and what I wanted to give to the world. Knowing what I want is empowering. Knowing what I want to give is clarifying."
"I have more clarity, I'm much more knowledgeable about my target market and ideal client, which comes across more clearly in my copy, I have more tools available to help me when I feel stuck or overwhelmed."
"I have SO much more clarity now. I have only been in business for a short time, and over the course of the eight weeks, my focus, client population, and goals have changed so much. I know where I am going, the type of business I want to have in a few years as I grow. I feel MUCH more confident as well! I raised my rates and I am getting paid my rates. I have so many new ideas floating around in my head and I have NEVER viewed myself as a creative person. I feel super positive about my future, my business, and my passion. I felt validated that I truly can make money doing what I LOVE, which is the opposite of what I have been taught in my life. My husband has really loved watching me grow and become more confident in my skills, myself as a person, and my work as well."
"I have a clarity, I know what to do."
"I have a clearer vision on how to prioritize and run the business. It was the kick in the butt I needed to get started on building the online business. I was extremely overwhelmed, not knowing where to start, and B-School made me start, little pieces at a time until before I knew it I had created the start of what I KNOW will be a prosperous business. Personally it helped build my spirit and confidence by solidifying that this is what I love doing and I'm not crazy for going for it. It also gave me the drive and motivation to keep going, and assurance that if I keep going I will be able to quit my 9 to 5 soon to start doing this business full time."
"I am now 100% committed to the success of my business, whereas before I was stuck on the fence trying to figure out what the right amount of time and energy was worth spending on my business. I like operating in this space so much more!"
"I have benefitted from the information greatly, as it has moved me from going around in circles to taking a clear and defined path."
"B-School's given me much-needed clarity on where to focus my business efforts and permission to shift sails if things change."
"I have gotten a lot more clear about who it is I serve, and I have also gotten more ‘okay’ with doing what I do...there has always been a part of me that feels my work right now is very temporary, and the program helped me clarify how I can do this long-term and still feel good."
"I'm definitely more focused and I recognize how many things there are I can be doing to build my business."
"I have been a consumer of woo-woo/personal development/business/creativity type info for at least 10 years, and this is one of the best, most focused, and well put together things EVER. Truly, a gift to the world. I am so inspired, touched, moved and have seen my internal vision go from gorgeous to techni-freaking-HD-quality-multicolored."
"I have become more aware of who I am serving, why I'm building a business, how to build a business and what I need to make it all come to life."
"I have really become super focused and clear on what I want."
"I think the main change is that I have much more clarity about the type of business I am building, and who my clients are."
"I'm more focused, happier in my own skin, and raring to change the world!"
"I feel more driven and motivated."
"I'm a heck of a lot more focused!"
"B-School seeps into your veins. It gets your creative juices flowing. Your being expands, and without you even realizing it, you suddenly see a brighter, grander vision for yourself and your business."
"For the past year or so I've been trying to get clear on the path I will take in order to build my business. As someone with many ideas, I feel like I've found direction and started making a map for my future."
"Since B-School my list has doubled. Last week I generated 5.25 times more profit than usual. That was HUGE. I have grown my business and brought on a new team member who helps me with the planning/strategic side of things, something I was never great at. Now my days are perfectly planned out and we are making real plans for the future. It is amazing."
"I had a $50,000 launch because of what I learned in B-School."
"My business has quadrupled in the last year and continues to grow."
"I've increased my prices by 20% and I've nearly doubled my monthly number of sales."
"I went from zero income in my business to being self-sustained with my own income."
"I've seen my confidence grow. My motto, thanks to Marie, is ‘people value what they pay for!’ This has changed my life and check book. I have gone from charging $20 an hour to $125 an hour and I have happier clients because they are getting a happier, and hence better, me!"
"Since being in B-School I have won more than $35,000 of new work because I had the confidence to price myself at what I'm worth."
"B-School has taken away my guilt of selling. I have great products. I know my products can help people. But I've always been shy to stand up and evangelize. B-School has helped me to understand that retailing need not be sleazy. My shame is gone and I'm on a mission to help hook people up with my awesome stuff and provide income for my family at the same time."
"My income was up by 60% the first month and then 100% the second month! I'm working less and making more. And who doesn't want that! Every hour that I'm at my desk I'm now moving forward and not just plodding away, hoping something will happen."
“Holy sh*t! I made $50,000+ from my first online product based entirely on what I learned in B-School!”
“You've raised the bar and broken the glass ceiling. I did too in my PR biz. I called the shots and grossed $500k.”
"I doubled my income and am going to hit six figures this year. I repositioned myself as a coach and an authority in the marketplace. I have an info product. I have so many offers to collaborate that I cannot say yes to them all. There is NOTHING like B-School on the planet. It's the only program out there that gives you real steps to take to build a biz online and offline. It works."
“I am earning six figures online now. I have and can buy all the guitars and musical equipment I need and want. And I have a new, better quality of life.”
“This year I'm looking at the possibility of skipping six figures all together and breaking seven figures! I can truly say that taking B-School and implementing what I learned about rocking an online business has made a HUGE difference not only in my income, but also in how seriously I take myself and my business and how much fun I'm having doing it. I'm also thinking WAY bigger than I ever have before.”
“I grew my mailing list 30% during the program and paid for the program before it was over with increased conversions.”
"Profit increases from $2 grand to $30 grand a month."
"I doubled the weekly subscriptions."
"I increased my income by 50% since first taking B-School in 2011, converted more opportunities into sales, and definitely implemented organization systems that allowed me to be more in control of my time. Thanks to B-School, I became a lot more discriminating about how I spend my time, and I ‘fired’ the clients who were not in line with my ideal customer avatar. This relieved stress and unhappiness in ways I can't even explain!"
"I did create an amazing group program with really juicy content. I hadn't done a virtual group before, so it was a lot of work setting it up. BUT now I have it. I made $3,700 for the 9-week program, which is double what I would have made seeing these clients one on one."
"Our sales grew by 50% last year. That was after completing B-School halfway through the year. We've just begun our 4th year in business and we've been more aggressive than ever since. We are on track to double our sales from last year by December!"
"I'm actually selling my products online!! B-School helped me focus my product offering and resulting in my sales doubling. I went from practically NO Internet presence to hearing the online cash register ring."
"I raised my freelance design rates by almost 300% and found that I didn't scare anyone away, and in fact I attracted my current clients even more—they showered me with praise and have hired me for more future projects than I had before!"
"My own perception of what I have to offer and the value I've placed on myself is incredibly HIGH. I don't put myself on the sale rack anymore nor do I negotiate with things that I'm crystal clear on."
"Got 3 new clients last week!"
"I have come from a full-time job where the most I could have probably earned would have been about 50-60K a year, and now I'm in a position where I believe I could soon earn that per month. My income has risen from about $1,000 per month to almost $10,000 per month."
"It's the type of training everyone needs because it speaks to the psychology and emotion of business which at the end of the day is really what's making people money."
"My company's revenue more than doubled every year since I started B-School."
"I can say that even before B-School was over I booked my first client doing exactly what I wanted to do and didn't even know that anyone would pay for it. I also increased my prices by 50% and have booked clients at that rate."
"I had about four times more sign-ups for the most recent teleseminar I launched and about six times more conversions for the course I sold (and am delivering now)."
Mary C. Weaver
"I feel comfortable charging more for my services. My rates have already gone up 30%."
"My profits doubled for 3 months in a row. You see, I am a little, tiny startup. Just me and my laptop and an idea that was born only 6 months ago. When I started selling my information products a few month after the website was born, I made just a little cash. No million-dollar business here...but if you can make $500 a month, than dang it you can make $5,000!! Cheers to baby steps and growth!"
"My client list has grown from 5 scattered clients to 11 regulars that rebook after every appointment. My social media sites have increased 138% with a small amount of effort. I cut my work hours 3 hours per day. I don't work before 10 a.m. or more than 3 days a week. My revenue has increased by 60% at LEAST."
"I increased pricing in my beta program by 50% and doubled sales."
"My income has gone from an average of $2,000/month to $8,000-$17,000 per month (big range, I know!), and it keeps going up and up every month!"
"I went from having a list of 20 to a list of 900! My sales also increased like crazy, I've had over 250 sales in 2 weeks!"
"It is saving me a lot of time and money! I am working still on my sites for myself, so just on that it is saving me thousands of dollars. The B-School community is amazing and very supportive. I am saving thousands of dollars just in getting opinions, ideas, and assistance from other business-minded women and men."
Lucia Gabriela Navarrete
"I had just started when B-School kicked off, so I went from $0 income to $3000+ for the last 2 months. Woohoo!"
Victoria Prozan McGlinn
"I've been able to focus on the real revenue makers in my business and create meaningful content for my customers. I've created a giant new revenue stream that will save me hours every week and better serve my clients!"
"3 new clients...that means about $4,200 in sales. That's over a 50% increase in revenue."
"I would definitely recommend B-School, especially to people who are struggling to generate a revenue stream for their business. I still can't believe that I had NO opt-in box prior to B-School. The addition of that one little piece was worth the price of B-School by itself!"
"Since B-School I have had more SALES than I ever had. I launched in April and July was my largest month. I went from 1 sale in April and 1 in May to July having 4 sales and my revenue increasing from 200 to over 1500. Raising my prices and getting more specific in my marketing definitely helped with this."
"I doubled my prices for several offerings!"
"I did apply some of the principles from marketing to create a recent sales letter, and I was able to sell 17 package deals, raising $2,125 to fund additional training and travel for myself this year. This experience was mindblowingly positive for me and really boosted both my confidence and motivation levels to get to work implementing all I've learned in B-School!"
"I've doubled my business, gotten clients I never would have gotten, and made sales I never would have made."
"I have tripled my income levels in the past 12 months."
"I created a business out of three of my passions—writing, food, and travel—and easily made 5 figures a month after B-School. I definitely increased sales from almost nothing to making a living doing only what I love. I am now learning to save more time, but I love what I do, so it's not like working at all."
"Since the start of the program, I've embraced the fact that premium pricing fits with me and my brand. Before, I never really thought I could charge what I wanted and still have amazing clients. I was scared to take that leap. Now I have an offer that fits what I want to do and what people want from me, and that feels so amazing!"
"I not only doubled my income, I multiplied it."
"By implementing a WordPress website I've decreased my monthly expenses associated with running my business by 87%!"
"I'm attracting more good-fit clients, and my revenue is 300% year over year."
"I am on track to make multiple 6 figures in profit for the first time in my life."
"I increased website traffic by 114%, increased social media visibility by 72%, opt-ins increased from 123 to 341, and I saved $10k on SEO, social media management, and website redesign."
"I was able to double the number of clients I was seeing AND get paid my new rate on a weekly basis."
"I've been able to streamline my schedule to manage both jobs and now I'm able to have evenings and weekends for myself without trying to play catch up with my work. I'm working on the most important tasks in each business and that is increasing my bottom line."
"I would say just within the 3 months since signing up for B-School, I've added an additional $30K to my business."
"I have increased my readership by 20%. I have increased my income by 10% and it's still growing."
"Got my first sales!"
"At the start of B-School, I was doing a little bit of business...but my revenue has already doubled!"
"I would recommend B-School to someone who really wants to make money online."
Melissa A. Rowe
"I let go of being ashamed at how I make money. I realized that I give advice every single day and that it is OK to charge for it. I also got laser focused about making smart, profitable decisions for my business."
"I increased my patient base by 20% and hit capacity."
"Since I started B-School, I am going to have my first $10,000/month revenue in a LONG time."
"Interestingly enough my biggest successes came up offline as a result of B-School. Summer is usually our slowest time during the year, but I had a 22% increase in my student population since the spring. Most of the students opted for my higher priced offerings as well."
"Thank you for giving me the confidence to charge more and feel good about what I am offering to the world. It feels amazing!"
"I have 3x as many clients and an average of 2 prospect emails or calls a week (which was previously 1-2 a month)."
"Not only have I learned what I need to do to actually start making money I've met some of the most amazing women in the world!"
Chizelle S Salter
"My business went from not making ANY profit to consistently turning a profit every month since (3 months now)."
"Things have been progressively growing and I will have quadrupled my income! 2012 is my first 6-figure year!"
"I am more confident about marketing online and no longer question my fees. I'm more relaxed yet really inspired to make money."
"It's is chock-full of useful and motivational material. You really feel cared for and super supported."
"Loved being able to download the materials in different formats. I loaded all the audio files into my iTunes so I can tap into it whenever I need a little refresher."
"Super organized, well-presented, and useful! Not a bunch of fluff...I don't have time for fluff."
"If you do the homework, you'll get results. There's no way around that."
"I definitely feel like I better understand my customer now, which has taken me from a place of burnout and near-resentment to once again truly wanting to provide products and services that HELP."
"It takes a vast subject and breaks it down into easy to digest and implement modules. The quality and production value of the course made it a pleasure to participate in. I'm a designer, and I really appreciate not only having great information but having it presented in a visually appealing way."
"I loved the Fun Sheets!!! They were critical to my making my ideas a reality. The Fun Sheets literally pulled ideas from my head, whereas before I never got them down on paper."
"I liked how clear everything was and easy to follow."
"I love that we all will have access to this training for life—I know I will be using it again and again!"
"I loved how the modules were presented in many forms, so you could take them in however it suited you that week. Also, as a designer, I found working with and looking at the many pieces in the B-School package a pleasure. Very well thought out, so I wasn't distracted by poor type choices and wonky design! Even Marie's clothes coordinated!"
"The pacing of the material was perfect. Even though the content was thorough and dense, it was presented in a way that was easy to integrate and I never felt overwhelmed."
"I loved that each module was available in different forms: video, audio, transcripts, etc. Everyone learns differently."
Raquel Wilson Sow
"I had the worst website before B-School. Now I have one I love."
"I appreciated the design and organization of the whole program. I've signed up for programs where fonts, colors, and layouts were not taken into consideration, and it makes it difficult to learn when they are not."
"I like the way the modules are broken down into short specific assignments with Fun Sheets for each segment, so it's clear how to take action immediately and not get bogged down with too much information."
"I have found this to be really inspiring, focused, smart, enjoyable, actionable, etc., and know that I will get more and more from it over time. It's a program that will stay with me, and help me grow whatever project I attempt."
"I think that I liked the access most of all, the ability to do things on my own schedule instead of having to be in one place at a specific time. My schedule is crazy, so having B-School at a moment's notice was awesome for me. I also liked that there were SO many options to learn the material. Every possible way to learn was covered with videos, audios, transcripts, etc."
"I actually have the beginnings of a website, where I had nada before the class and I am thrilled to have a meeting with a fellow B-Schooler tomorrow to help me build it and plan for the future."
"Convenience. By far this is the most important to me. The ability to listen to or see the videos, to download all the materials so I can access them when I'm in the frame of mind to get the most from them."
"Marie delivers a crystal clear message, the content is outstanding. She has the ability to anticipate pitfalls, concerns, and overwhelm, and handles these issues in a direct, no-nonsense, and sensitive way. You receive so much more than you think in terms of bonus material, B-School group support, worksheets, etc. There are no sales pitches. Fantastic B-School team support throughout the program. Marie proves that she has a genuine commitment to deliver by sharing her expertise and showing support and encouragement—the LONG live calls were proof again and again."
"It zones in on exactly what you need to be doing differently with your marketing, and has helped me so much."
"I enjoy the format, the simplicity in which it is written and the material is communicated. Also, I like that it gives specific steps to complete tasks, as many programs give ideas but not step-by-step how to's."
"The methodical approach to the videos and all the worksheets helped me learn and retain."
"Yes, I would definitely recommend B-School for a variety of reasons: quality content and presentation of materials, an awesome community of fellow B-School students, and the ability to constantly refer to the materials and to learn from the lovely and multitalented Marie Forleo, of course."
"It was so well organized, and although it was a lot to take in and I still have work to do I didn't feel overwhelmed by all the info, just inspired and motivated. I liked the Fun Sheets and action plans so I know what I need to do to work through it."
"Those weekly Q&A calls were incredible. I have never seen anyone with Marie's stamina and seeing Marie in action helps me see that it's possible."
"What I loved the most was the office hours. I think I learned just as much from the office hours as in the program because Marie shares heart-to-heart things you might not hear her share anywhere else."
"I LOVED LOVED LOVED the Q&As. Marie was so generous with her time and so skillful, smart, and compassionate with her responses. I was DELIGHTED to get to ask Marie a few questions...and one in particular, her response just bowled me over, it was SO insightful and accurate, it blew me away! Very inspiring."
"I would hands down recommend B-School. Seriously, the gold is in Marie's delivery and ability to communicate complex business theories in a solid and simple way. She is the perfect balance between rigor and relevance."
"I loved the way the modules were professionally organized and combined video, audio, fun sheets, and action steps. The info was so current, vital, and complete! I know everything I've ever needed to know and now I am applying it! I felt like you were in my home teaching me, and connecting with you on the live calls was awesome!"
"I would and have recommended B-School up, down, backwards, and sideways. The material is so straightforward but also so creative and engaging. It's cut up into easy to digest pieces so you don't get overwhelmed. It's actionable and gives you a roadmap on how to focus your business and implement the strategies to make it grow, and you can go at your own pace. The community is hands down the most brilliant, generous, and supportive group of business owners I have ever met. I have made some really great friends, found a mentor, and learned so much from everyone else. Having access to Marie once a week inspired me to do the work and think outside of the box so I was ready to ask questions. It's the only program that spoke to me in a way that I could grasp about having an online business. I really felt like Marie gets our trepidations and is right there with us for the journey."
"The resources, Facebook babes, local connections, and the end of the modules with web, marketing, and other online resources completely ROCK!"
"TECH training! I have watched it over and over and over! Nathalie's presentation and WordPress training are priceless. That is the foundation of the school for me. Without tech training (even though it was a bonus), I feel B-School is more than worth its tuition. I had no idea I could build all this on my own or with little help."
"I would easily recommend B-School because the material is terrific and you present it brilliantly and you make it possible for pretty much anybody to follow the program."
Lynne Whiteley Novy
"I love the way the program was physically set out. It was easy to follow, the Fun Sheets were great to use (and easy to use), the information was great to follow, and I especially like how it built on itself. Each week having a new set of activities to do was a great way to plan my new business."
"I like the videos, transcripts and Fun Sheets. I like how each step would build on the next."
"Website was the most ‘life-changing’ for me. I so didn't know anything about website, and the tech training was just eye-opening and practical, and I implemented it right away!"
"I loved the multimodal delivery—I could download the audio files and listen to them in the car and then complete the Fun Sheets at a later date. The content was appropriately 'chunked' and manageable on a weekly basis so I felt like I succeeded each week."
"I LOVE that it's all downloadable and I'll have ‘forever’ access to it. There was soo much information, and I did a decent job of at least reviewing it all, but since I have a baby business, so much of it will apply in the next several months. I felt much less frantic knowing that I can revisit all the information as I need to."
"I am now getting weekly hits on my website from Google and other search engines (something I never had before) thanks to my new content and the optimization strategies I learned."
"The content is always fresh and not served with BS on the side. REAL STUFF!"
"I've taken other training programs and NO ONE has remained on the phone as long as Marie has during her office hour calls. Holy smokes, woman! You are truly amazing!"
"I loved the schedule and how it was paced. The videos, implementation week, and office hours (unreal how much time Marie spent with us!) are bonuses...I love that I can access it at any time...It was just so well thought out, organized, and executed. TOP NOTCH!"
"Love love love the Fun Sheets. The high quality, beautiful yet simple design of the B-School materials makes me feel fun and sexy while I'm working on my biz."
"Brilliant design and delivery, seriously professional, great presentation. Also...I hadn't realized how impactful it would be to be going through a program at the same time as others. That was cool."
"The site is beautiful and the course is really easy to navigate."
"I love having the resources in multiple formats that I DOWNLOAD FOREVER and take with me. Most of us lead very active and mobile lives, so this feature was absolutely a selling point for me."
"The way Marie teaches is so lovely and inspiring!"
"I thought it was very well organized. Some online programs feel like they are all over the place. I appreciate steps to follow in a logical order, and with specific actions to do with the corresponding activities."
"I LOVED LOVED all the Fun Sheets and how so much of the ‘work’ we need to do for our business was laid out in our homework. I loved the specificity as well as all the amazing examples we could leverage. So well done!"
"I love your instructional videos, of course. The way everything is so organized. The calls! I learned so much from the calls. Wasn't expecting that. The fact that I can access it forever. The community. Your team and the wonderful customer service! And all of the fab surprises and bonuses!! Once again you over delivered."
"I love being able to download it all into folders to use when the Internet isn't on and to download to my iPod to listen to on the train. I just think it is the nicest online experience."
"This is an excellent program for getting right into the details of how to market and behave ethically in business. Everything was specific and usable."
"Online delivery with ability to download for later reference. Excellent production quality."
"I liked the clear accessibility of all the bonus material, recorded group calls, and the course material in all formats. I found that to be one of the best features. I got the feeling that you were being very generous by allowing us to have all the content in every way you could possibly give it to us."
"I loved that I had access to everything at anytime, anywhere, anyhow...and being away from wifi during my move, it really helped being able to download everything!"
"I like the online format and the ability to download all info and to return to it for a lifetime."
"I liked the video/slide presentation format. I don't learn as easily just listening to something. And Marie's personality and energy rocked!"
"I have no more website shame—which is HUGE for me. In a previous business venture I hired someone to do the website design for me, but I didn't know anything about what I needed or how to change things. Now I feel empowered to make changes as I want."
C. Anne Tipton
"The material is so well organized and aesthetic."
"I like how the program is presented. It is very organized, it's tight without fluff and bull and it addresses what everyone is feeling about doubt and fear. I like that it can be applied to a wide range of businesses."
"The way the content was delivered through the modules was fantastic—the fact that you can download it all in various formats rocked!"
"I love how you can watch the vid, then do the exercises, then listen to the calls. Combining the different ways people can learn is awesome."
"The course content was fantastic and the fact that you had practical exercises at the end of each module really reinforced the learning and made me engage more. (I am a nerd!). I also loved the fact that it was extremely easy to download all of the course content and that I can always refer back to it (which I know I will be doing often!)."
"Love how the modules were set up...straightforward , clean, and easy to follow. I adore Marie's sense of humor and witty personality, she makes the videos worth watching!!"
"Her weekly emails that shared that week's module were always uplifting and encouraging. Her videos and Fun Sheets made a lot of sense and were extremely well thought out. There's no doubt that she's a genius at this stuff and that's why the classes are so successful."
"Top notch contemporary design, easy overview, catering to all learning styles: see, hear, do."
"I loved how the lessons were presented. Concepts broken down, simplified, with concrete examples, without overload. They were direct and clear and fun, and the live audio over the slides made for a great learning platform."
"The format is great—it is clear and organized to really permit focus."
"The fact that everything is downloadable in perpetuity is a godsend for those of us who are very busy in our day jobs/current businesses."
"I didn't expect to be able to download all of the course information, and in multiple formats. I love that. I also really appreciated the pacing of the course. The attention to detail is excellent, support is strong, and the content is invaluable."
"The absolute best are the conference calls...stunningly insightful, inspirational, informative, and worldview changing."
"I've enjoyed the package as a whole, but I'd have to say the fact that I get access to this FOREVER is really where it's at for me, since I am taking my sweet time going through the first time. And since I have forever access, I plan on going through it again and again in the future."
"Love the structure and format of the videos and materials. Very organized and short, so I'm not spending hours watching videos."
"I also TOTALLY appreciated and loved the live calls with Marie. That was worth the price of B-School in itself."
"I like that the course is very easy to follow and offered in many forms of media so that I can work on it offline."
"I love the format. The videos were a good length and the Fun Sheets went with them, but it wasn't a word-for-word copy of the presentation, which helped me focus on each part separately. I also LOVED Marie's periodic assurance that I'm right on time, even when I fell behind."
"It has valuable material for anyone at any stage of their business."
"The Fun Sheets sounded a little silly, but they really did help you to engage with the material more deeply than if you just watched the video once and moved on."
"How beautifully designed B-School is, it makes it a pleasure to use it and keep coming back."
"It is professional and fun at the same time and I find the curriculum very comprehensive."
Jennifer Plante Chambers
"I am one of those people who has read (or at least bought and perused) a bazillion self-help books. I generally skip over the exercises in the books though. In B-School, I have come to appreciate actually DOING the exercises (Fun Sheets) and providing comments. So specifically, I love most the breakdown of the material into steps that I can do and the experience of taking ACTION."
"There is a lot of content and a very clear presentation, well structured and completed by good worksheets."
"I have undertaken a serious revamping of my business. I'm about to launch a premium offering, and I would never have been able to do it without B-School."
"Marie’s videos and the Fun Sheets are brilliant, and even though it is tough, it is still inspiring!"
Jennifer van Balkom
"Marie does a fantastic job to cut through the theory and provide real-world examples, and helps you build relevant skills and develop the knowledge that you really need to know!"
"Office hours were legendary! While it wasn't always relevant to me, to experience Marie's expert, encouraging, tactful and loving responses was a priceless lesson in verbal communication. She listens intently and her advice is gold."
"The content was spot-on. I also loved the audio files, where I can listen to them at work and driving in my car."
"I love how comprehensive the program is. I also love the people it draws to it and of course, I love Marie's style."
"Thought the presentation was very slick—loved how you put everything together so professionally. It's great being able to download all the files in one go."
"Loved that the worksheets gave me exactly what I would have wanted to take notes about. It saved me time taking notes and forced me to really think hard about things. When I go back to one of the worksheets for information, I sometimes can't believe that I wrote it...you really pull the good out of people!"
"Loved the community, learned a lot from the way the course was ran. The design was beautiful and I will go back to the info over and over again."
"I loved that the trainings were broken down into smaller sections which made them easier to watch, absorb and take action on."
"The Fun Sheets were great for taking the theory and making it real."
"The way the classes are taught are so fluid. So simple, yet so profoundly life-changing."
"I love the multilevel learning system of video, pdfs, MP3s, and Fun Sheets. So much incredible information."
"There are SO many things I would have never come across if it weren't for B-School—just the concept of 'make money while changing the world for the better' is worth its weight in gold. And of course there are so many practical things in there. I like how Marie really holds your hand and helps you through it."
"Thanks, Marie, for the time you put into creating this program and taking our lengthy office-hour calls! Your passion shines through and I am grateful for it."
"Marie is a world-class teacher and entrepreneur who knows the ins and out of running a business online successfully today. Joining B-School is also a no-brainer since you get lifetime access to the course and the community of great people. Highly recommended."
"The course truly has over delivered!"
"I liked how clear and concise each segment was with the videos and the Fun Sheets to keep you on track. It was a good way to really get into the work right away as opposed to just watching a video and trying to figure it all out by yourself."
"You give world-class, up-to-date business advice."
"I loved all aspects of the videos. I thought the length was great and the worksheets were extremely helpful."
"The most fun was the office hours, [they] really allowed me to connect and feel like I was apart of a community."
"I LOVE the in-depth training videos."
"I loved the simplicity of the formatting. The materials were consistent in their content and structure."
"I loved Marie's training videos each week. Short, enjoyable, to the point and crammed with great content. I looked forward each week to the next dose of Marie."
"As soon as I started working on the exercises and interacting with people, new opportunities arose."
"The editorial calendar has made a HUGE difference in the way I manage my time. I run a 6-figure company, do not outsource any of the hands-on work, and have a 17-month-old that stays at home with me, so time is hugely critical for me. I have always been good at prioritizing and GSD (getting shit done!), but the editorial calendar was huge. I have implemented that and it's really made a difference already."
"The fact that you can go at your own pace is perfect for busy entrepreneurs."
"I would absolutely recommend B-School without reservation. Those who attempt starting a business without such focus and training waste SO much in both time and money."
"I'm sure it's shaved months, if not years off of my learning curve."
"I make more money now, but the hugest difference is that I am doing that in 3 days/week instead of 5-6 days per week. I work much smarter now...my whole life is so much better now as a result. Having this time in my life is priceless."
"I definitely have saved 5 hours per week taking your advice, Marie. I am now focused, I am aware of my profits...where they are coming from and how; I am zoned in on what's important."
"The videos are clear and concise, I didn't feel like my time was wasted."
"I launched my blog on April 2, 2012. Four months later, I have a product that is making sales, an email list that is growing at an astonishing rate, and a guest post on the website of one of my favorite magazines. Some of that is me hustling, but a lot of it is due to B-School teaching me where and how to hustle: how to focus my time and efforts in the best way possible. I'm a work-from-home mom of a 15-month-old. I pretty much get to work at naptime and after the baby goes to bed, so I don't have time to mess around! B-School has given me the focus, confidence, and specific tools I needed to make my dream of running my own web-based business a reality."
"I work from home with 4 kids (and occasionally Starbucks) and set aside a certain number of hours per month that I'm not interested in changing (It's really a good balance between work and family). So while I haven't cut back my hours, I am making more money per hour. Does it get any better?"
"The main thing I like about B-School is it is very much to the point. I'm a super busy person, doing this course 20 minutes here and 20 minutes there (it all adds up!!), so I absolutely appreciate how there is not a lot of ‘fluff’ and the videos and courses are not too long."
“I would say that it is the perfect program for those who are super busy but 100% committed to getting their asses kicked (in a good way) to up their game and get rich, happy and hot.”
"I can say that I have saved at least 10 hours a week just by a simple shift in my scheduling habits e.g. calendaring and following through. The result is that I am in a more creative headspace."
"I now have a very clear roadmap to build my business, particularly the online aspect of it. I know exactly what I need to do to build out my online presence, and I love knowing I'm not wasting time reinventing the wheel. Having the tools from B-School means I can focus on creating my own unique content rather than trying to figure out what website elements my site should have, or wasting hours and hours trying to figure out how to build an online program."
"I'm clearer about using my daily work hours in an intentional way that honors energy and opportunity and also the need for rest. I get more done in less time as a result. I easily save 5 hours a week in faster creative sales writing."
"I'd recommend it to all women wanting to start or improve their own business. It's chock-full of valuable information, and I'm sure has shaved years off the learning curve for me."
"I saved over 6 hours per week after the first week of B-School, JUST from learning The Follow-Through Formula! It saved me a ton of time to learn the scheduling discipline and to keep myself on the ‘no’ train. I have always been one of the most organized people I know and realized I wasn't organized enough when it came to my business, and even my life sometimes."
"Because of B-School, I have learned to put some of my income on autopilot, saving me at least 20 hours a week. By figuring out how to create online products and classes, I no longer have to consider myself an ‘hourly employee’ of myself."
"B-School saved me hundreds of hours just getting my business started since I would have had to search and search for all the training that was packaged up so nicely in B-School. Everyone loves a one-stop shop and that's really what B-School was for me."
"I've increased the number of billable hours to 12 instead of 9 without working any extra days or hours. I've streamlined my admin tasks and my overall schedule so that billable time comes first and I'm able to have more of it, which increases my profit. I've also jumped on the No train and started gently nudging clients to bend to my schedule instead of trying to juggle everyone's projects at once. I'm currently booked up several months in advance for web design and I feel comfortable telling a client I can't start on their project for several weeks. Now that I'm working on 1-2 projects at a time instead of like 20 at once, I am able to really focus and get them done more quickly. This means a better cash flow, happier clients, and more available billable hours for me."
"There are so many online marketing trainings and webinars out there, but honestly, they all seem like a waste of time now that I've been through B-School."
"You have saved me MANY hours of correcting mistakes and wondering where it's all gone wrong if I had tried to start my biz without B-School."
"By having completed B-School, I am saving endless hours in setting up my business. I can do things right the first time and employ reliable people to assist me with various elements."
"I can tell you that the number of hours on Google I would have spent trying to figure all this out is incalculable! I feel great about saving myself years of the wrong kind of trial and error."
Marinda Jansen van Rensburg
"I am able to write my blog posts a lot faster. It takes me about half the time now."
"Without a doubt, I have gone farther in less time than I would have (and could have, with my former mindset) without B-School. Plus, I have a clear idea of exactly what my next steps are—which is saving me...weeks? Months? Maybe years!—as opposed to floundering about trying to figure out how to create my most authentic presence online and in my business."
"I've mostly outsourced, eliminated, or delegated the things that were previously dragging me down. So I have more time, energy and focus for the areas where I really shine."
"I've streamlined my work, saving time and energy."
"I appreciated the simple interface used to access the materials. There was no fluff or garbage to wade through to get to the prize. Thank you for not wasting my time."
"I started my business! And I started it off on the right foot. I saw so many others around me starting businesses without these foundations and they were floundering. Meanwhile, I was clear, deliberate, and conserved my resources."
"I haven't yet launched the biz of my dreams, BUT B-School has had a HUGE part in changing me as a person and my outlook on business and life in general. I feel I have all the knowledge and resources I could possibly need at my fingertips. It was, and still is, a trigger for having changed so many things in life and biz. Even though I haven't launched my business yet and am still working it all out, what I have applied to 'the day job' has shown great results!"
"What's most surprised me about B-School is the lack of overwhelm that I actually feel (given how little I know and where I am in developing the business—which is admittedly not even really a business yet). I have a large to-do list in my head (which includes going back over details that I don't really understand yet) and normally this amount of work would make me crumble into a heap of despair—but the way it was presented makes it seem doable if I just put my head down and focus on specific steps. That's the biggest gift for me—the feeling that I can move forward into making all of this work as I develop the business, even though it doesn't exist anywhere except in my head right now."
"The Start the Right Business bonus was beautiful and the lessons have helped put me in the right frame of mind."
"I actually know what I want to do now!"
Marinda Jansen van Rensburg
"I think if I hadn't had this to ground me and create a really solid foundation, I would have completely floundered."
"While participating in B-School, I was in a special institute. I went through the Start the Right Business bonus training, and I was able to clearly define my business. As a result, my business won $17,500 from a major foundation. Before B-School, I was learning on my own and even had an adviser, but nothing jelled until doing the Start the Right Business. It all came together and as a result I was able to articulate my business to my partners and ultimately 2 sets of judges during two 'pitch sessions.' My business became clear because of B-School."
"It helped me figure out a proven business model."
"Start the Right Business. It is pure GOLD."
"I really like the Start the Right Business book, as it was a fantastic starting point for those of us who were not yet clear on a business idea."
"Start the Right Business—priceless!"
"Start the Right Business turned me upside down (or as it turns out, right side up) and I'm starting over. I had one business idea and model, but learned that a different model comes much closer to who I really am and gives me much more joy to provide it."
"Yesterday my husband was looking over my new website and reading my articles and said to me, ‘This reminds me why I fell in love with you.’ What more can a girl want?"
"I definitely feel like I am 'living' my life now and not just participating."
"I'm now my authentic self; I'm not hiding behind the professional mask. I'm the real, Jersey girl, Indian American, inner geek, sunshiny, perky diva that I always was on the inside, but now I'm not afraid to show it!
"For me, B-School was such a mindset shift, I can't imagine going back to the old way of thinking about doing business."
"Taking control of my business with love and empowerment has inspired me to do the same in all parts of my life. Since last summer I've achieved all of my goals and then some. My husband and I are living with location freedom, and I finally have what I've been yearning for for years: time to write another book."
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart, this program is invaluable. You have helped me out of THE darkest time in my life and you cannot put a price on that and I am forever grateful to you Marie."
"I like the spiritual principles that underlie the material."
"With all my gratitude, I can't express how much B-School has changed my business. My business is such a big part of who I am (though of course not all of it), and the ability to get it out there to make money and change the world means so much to me. When I joined B-School, my business was newly launched but not making the money or impact I thought it would or should have. And frankly, I thought, ‘Where did I go wrong?’ Thanks to B-School, I'm not thinking that anymore, and have switched it up to, 'What can I do to make this happen?'"
"Really embracing my uniqueness now. Much more passionate about my business."
"The greatest value I received from B-School was beginning to own and take responsibility for MY value and the value of what I offer."
Lisa Van Ahn
"My entire passion for life and my business is reignited. Out of the blue this week my husband told me how attracted he was to the 'kickass woman' I am becoming. He said he noticed a huge shift in my attitude and that is all B-School. Thank you for helping me to believe in myself."
"I am happier. I feel more alive. B-School has started a whole process of getting to know myself, my heart, my fears, my goals and my talents and then getting to know my business in a whole new way."
"Thank you, Marie, B-School is a life-changer for me—both personally and for my business. I am on the right path to do what I was meant to do—and I would have NEVER known that if it weren't for you and B-School."
"It's such an elegant way to learn and grow as an entrepreneur. Thanks so much for an experience that changed the way I look at the potential of my life with an effect that rippled out positively to those around me!"
"I am much happier and positive, which I can see has made a big difference in my husband and 6 children's attitudes. They actually want to be around me!"
"I have become more driven and passionate about my life's purpose and goals with regards to my business and family goals."
"It's changed my life in almost every way possible (work, relationship, living situation); all for the better."
"I've noticed a change in my attitude. Rather than feeling the world is out to get me when things don't go right, B-School has made it a squillion times easier to pick myself up and carry on."
"I feel more refreshed and excited."
"For me it was about starting to really believe in my business. Entering B-School was like saying, ‘Yes, this will succeed. I will make it work.’ This new attitude has increased my energy level and it is helping me assert myself more effectively."
"B-School has the perfect mix of business advice, encouragement and personal growth advice. That is hard to do but Team Forleo has mastered it!"
"I'm so happy you're 100% you and that you found your passion and are sharing it with the world. When I started my business I did all the things you outlined as ‘No-No’s," like seeing what all my competitors were doing and trying to emulate them. I knew that never felt right to me but I just thought I HAD to do it to be as successful as they are. But once I started following you, I started making changes everywhere, I was more comfortable in my own skin, and I stopped trying to be like everyone else."
"Thank you for the work you do and the doors your teachings and encouragement have opened up for me. My kids would say thank you as well. Their mama has been MORE focused and purposeful and LESS overwhelmed and frustrated since starting B-School."
"I know you talk a lot about changing the world, but I wanted you to know you have changed my heart. You have taught me things I will carry with me into the rest of my adult life. I cherish what I learned from you."
"Marie is awesome. She is that unique mouth blast of the Jersey girl 'realness' I love combined with the marketing mind of an entrepreneur guru all wrapped up in a sweet Prada dress and some Jimmy Choos!"
"I've shifted my business into operating completely online, which is a freedom I have wanted for the last 4 years."
"More passion/pride about my vision and my business. It seems like I'm now approaching my work as a calling rather than as an income generator."
Diane DeGiorgio (Cesa)
"My life and ‘job’ have so much more purpose and meaning now. I am now constantly coming from a place of giving and no longer worry about being ‘salesy.’ I was always terrified of having to sell to people. I am so glad I do not have to worry about that any longer."
"I feel released to infuse more of myself into my business. As a result I like my business more."
“It's focused, no-fluff, high-fun wisdom with sass.”
“Every single person I know could benefit from this awesome program. I tell everyone about it!”
“I have learned so much and I have a new outlook on what I can accomplish in the world. Thank you.”
“B-School is a mix of MBA and personal coaching course, it pushes you and inspires you to get your life together. And it provides valuable tools while you’re at it.”
“It was thoughtful, well-organized, motivating and impactful.”
“I'd absolutely recommend it to anyone who is ready to get serious about their business. I think it's really benefited me because I've tried to follow through each step, setting really clear goals and then forcing myself to stick with those goals. It's truly brought me to a completely different level, and I'm planning my own launch with confidence.”
“I am much more informed and have a new and progressive view of how to be a successful businesswoman.”
“It has helped to speed up the process of bringing my business to the next level. Every time I was stuck at a roadblock for launching my online program, I could get the answers from B-School.”
“Thank you! I am so grateful that you have shared this with the world.”
"Wow. My business has taken off big time. I have new amazing friends and a community of awesome women entrepreneurs. I'm happier, healthier, and feel a sense of inner power knowing I can add value to women's lives and businesses."
“B-School is an accessible, practical, well-packaged and well-produced course specifically aimed to help you create a dynamic and profitable online business.”
“I feel as if a whole new world has opened up to me in terms of Internet marketing in general. I get inspired every day by all of the new resources you have opened my eyes to that I never even knew existed before. I'm very grateful.”
"You provide an invitation to be as totally awesome as we are all meant to be in our unique ways."
“I feel like I have the best resource on the Internet for learning whatever I need toward launching my website.”
“I feel like everything got bumped up a notch. My thinking, my website, my newsletter, my rates! I am taking myself more seriously—and I am having so much more FUN in my business. I am genuinely excited about what I am creating, all on my own terms.”
“This course was a great way for me to hit the pause button and review all the things I was doing out of habit, and not necessarily because they made sense for me or my business. My life is full of juicy enthusiasm and hyper creative energy! Loved that this course just lit a fire under my creative ass.”
“I would tell someone to be prepared for the ride of her life!!!”
"B-School has given me the confidence, the support network (and new friends!), and tools I need to start my own business! This is HUGE! I couldn't have taken this step without you!"
“B-School changed the way I think about business.”
“HUGE changes in my life since B-School! Are you kidding me?! I feel like my closest friends don't even know me anymore because I'm a new person, in such a good way. I have designed an amazing online course geared towards my customer avatar. I can't wait to launch. It's going to be stellar. I was able to use your program to the fullest and custom-design my online course to meet specific needs of my customers. They will be SO happy!!!”
“I have been given the tools to make my dreams happen. The power is in MY hands. And I have a tremendous support group to help me with that.”
“I spent two years getting caught in creative cul-de-sacs (thank you for that term, by the way, I'll use it forever!), and I could never get anywhere with my coaching business. I didn't even know that I could play on this level, so that's what B-School did for me. Not only have I made massive steps forward in my business, I'm showing up on a higher level at my day job too. I feel like B-School has caused me to turn pro in everything. I'm no longer living in excuse-ville.”
“First of all, now I have a business—instead of a community service hobby. B-School showed me I could turn my passion into an authentic business. There is no way I would have figured this out on my own. Also: Confidence that what I have to offer is amazing and needed in the world and HOW to do that. I am taking the material and applying it at a pace that allows me to be top-notch in all that I do. I have PRACTICAL material to work on every day. No more vague wondering around “how can I get my message out,” I have clear action plans daily. OMG—and be myself!! I have been so compartmentalized—rockin' here and hidin' there and it was a total mind bender. Now I can just be me and offer that in my business and my life."
“Thanks sooo much for such a wonderful experience. I will be using what I have learned from you for years to come.”
“I would totally recommend B-School and already have to a lot of my friends who are new entrepreneurs. Skillful, hip, authentic, fun. The material is concise, gets to the point, takes us step-by-step to profoundly important realizations.”
“Thank you for rockin' my world the past two months!”
“The motivation from B-School and from fellow B-Schoolers propelled me to do more for my business then I have ever been motivated to do.”
“I have a much clearer sense of what it means to market myself and my artwork. I am implementing so many of the lessons I've learned in B-School to make my business work for me and I've gained the confidence to know that it will. It has helped me to truly believe that I can succeed and has given me the tools to do so.”
“My business life has pure focus, I have eliminated all the unnecessary pieces that don't fit. My confidence in what I offer has skyrocketed exponentially. B-School offers vision and clarity like I've never seen. It speaks to the creative mind as well as the technical. It helps you cut the crap out of your business and uncovers your true brilliance. It empowers you to take your vision to the next step. You really come out feeling like you have the knowledge and 'how to' to accomplish anything you want with your business. It will up your confidence tenfold. It is so much freakin’ fun!”
“In a short time, I've had huge insights that are so deep and transformational that my colleagues perceive me as an ‘expert.’ It was like before I was scrambling in the dark trying to figure out how to do all these things and finally I got some sound structure that still allowed for maximum creative freedom and innovation."
“B-School allowed me to move quickly in putting my dreams and passions into a business for all to see. So far the reaction has been amazing. I made priceless connections and learned so much about how to approach the idea of marketing my passion. I feel as though I am on the brink of something amazing. B-School gave me the confidence to be fearless which caused everything to come together so much faster and better than it would have without you.”
“Best business program EVER!”
“Doors have been opening where I once never even knew a door existed.”
“When it comes to taking such a big leap like starting your own business, you don't just need to know how to do it, but you need people who will cheer you on every step of the way. Marie has been great about showing how you can take an ordinary life and make it extraordinary through entrepreneurship.”
“My business is taking off, I am happier, more focused and better at making decisions. I'm a better wife and mother. I have an exit strategy for my day job and a leave date on the calendar. I have a blossoming pipeline, scads of creativity, and a million and one ideas that I'm implementing one at a time. Oh, and my email list has DOUBLED.”
“This program has rocked me to Jupiter and back, and has delivered more than I could have possibly conceived in terms of content value, connections and motivation. I actually think I'm still out in orbit somewhere.”
“I have a business now!"
“I have much BIGGER ideas of where I can go. And my list has grown a lot from implementing the B-School strategies.”
“The program delivery was phenomenal—clean and professional without being busy and scattered. Everything was in super rich bite-sized pieces, which is so appreciated amidst the onslaught of information we have to sift through! They have clearly spent time sifting through the endless amounts of information and techniques, and distilled what is most useful, implementable, and effective.”
“Strategy! Clarified awareness of WHERE I'm going and WHY I'm going there. Tons and tons of inspiration for web design, client marketing and price point. I feel like I'm also really ENJOYING working on my business, which is a great way to feel (and brag about!) It's great for everyone, regardless of where they are in biz development. I can really see where people with more fully formed businesses are taking them to the next-next-next level. I can see how my business is growing/becoming sturdier to really fly.”
"I have movement on the website I've been talking about for years. I've written content for the pages and blogs, I have a team behind me pushing for me, I have marketing knowledge I never had before, I have a GREAT community of amazing women doing amazing things, and I now LOVE marketing. I'm like a little marketing nerd now. I honestly love all of it. Because it's cool, helpful, easy to understand, fun, cheeky, and amazing. The quality of the product is stellar and I feel like I'm constantly getting top-secret amazing information delivered in a sassy way (which I LOVE). YOU ROCK MY WORLD!!!!"
“You saved my business and changed my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
“B-School is unique and jam-packed with game-changing content. I highly recommend this program to women entrepreneurs who are ready to take their businesses to the next level.”
“B-School has helped me focus on what's really important—my service/gift and the best way to put it out into the world without losing originality. I don't want to follow someone else’s road, I like traveling my own path.”
“You have made a total believer out of me. I now believe that not only will I be able to apply what I've learned but that it will be manageable, effective and fun!”
“A genuine THANK YOU. Taking B-School has really helped me realize my weaknesses and strengths and has already accelerated my business growth.”
“If you need clear, concise and practical knowledge about building your business then B-School is the best. It rocks your socks off with the content, blows your mind with assignments and fills you with confidence that yes you can do it without overwhelm, stress or fear. It is great fun, you meet cool people and it makes business so damn sexy.”
"Since taking B-School I really feel liberated that it is MY business, and I get to do and commit to the things that I want. I also feel much more confident in my feminine energy being an asset in business as opposed to a liability. Coming from a place of love and being myself was not something that I considered a part of my 'business plan' before B-School, and now I think it is essential."
C. Anne Tipton
"I am constantly upping my game and it feels good."
"I see opportunity in places I might not have seen it before. I can turn practically anything into newsletter material."
"Marketing. I thought I hated it and instead Marie made me love it."
Fabiana Zonca Nicora
"I think the content is fantastic and Marie presents it in a way that is easy to understand and she is very ethical and encourages a high degree of ethics in her students' businesses. This is a top priority of mine and I only work with ethical people."
"Marie is incredible! She is a role model for women who want to remain authentic and maintain their passion while changing the world."
"The biggest thing that I've seen change is my commitment to myself and my mission. For a while, I just ‘dabbled’ with doing things online, I made some money, but I didn't place a lot of clout on the fact that I have a unique gift to give the world. Your constant reinforcement of not holding back your gifts was huge for me."
"Since I started B-School my ENTIRE business has been revamped."
"Marie has done a fantastic job outlining what needs to be done, how, and why. This has been such an eye-opener, it's been incredible and given me such drive, enthusiasm, and a new belief in myself."
"Not only do I have more clients than ever (the optimal number of clients right now), they are my IDEAL clients. I can now happily and confidently say NO to my less-than-ideal clients and refer them out to more suitable people."
"I FREAKING LOVE MARKETING!"
"I've never felt particularly business savvy but I feel like I've found an inner businesswoman inside just waiting to fully thrive."
"I feel happier about my choice to become an entrepreneur (multi-passionate, of course)."
"I am totally sold on the potential of e-commerce, but this is the first time I've seen the opportunity to make it fun, sexy, creative, personal, and profitable!"
"It's allowed me to be able to SPEAK more clearly about what it is I am about and do. "
"I had gotten a bit disillusioned about running my business but have found a renewed energy and excitement for it again."
"I was never interested in marketing at all before, now I LOVE it."
"This training has reignited my passion in what I do...I believe in my business more. Marie's philosophy, that we all are unique and if we don't get our services out there then we are actually holding back on others that need what we give, was huge for me!"
"B-School always reminds me that the more fun I have in creating my products, the more joy I can bring to others."
"B-School is a treasure map and made it OK for me to go for the meaning and the depth that I want to infuse in my business."
"My general energy and business feels ‘next level.’ The power I feel like I have now simply because I don't think, but rather KNOW so many more things about my online business is huge."
"I am so much savvier about running an online business. I challenge myself much more to be SPECIFIC in all of my marketing materials—and also to be true to myself and MY voice."
"With B-School I feel I am learning how to set myself up to thrive."
"The business information was priceless, but what really kept me going was the spirit of Team Forleo—you can definitely feel the love and wholehearted enthusiasm that your company gives to all of us B-Schoolers. I am very grateful for how well you handle guiding the dreams of we anxious, fearful women with such grace."
"I am putting the fun back in my biz!"
Laura Pepper Wu
"I used to feel guilty that I was only working 4 days a week (of the 5 that my shop is open). I now feel empowered to protect my family time and hustle my business, each on their own time."
"I've taken the plunge...into my soul. This opportunity has allowed me the permission to dive into a deeper space than I could have ever imagined. I've reminded myself that I have courage to be me...and that's the best gift I can give to myself and everyone else!"
"My mind has reframed the way I view my business. I have taken more responsibility for what I do. And I have learned how to better lead from my heart."
"Thank you Marie for being you and showing others—like me—how just being me is enough for the world."
"The online presence I am creating for my business is completely different than it was pre-B-School. More direct, more confident voice, more authentically me!"
"It really is the best online business program I've found for creatives. It gives organized, actionable, profitable information without ever becoming dry or boring and without ever encouraging ethically questionable marketing practices or viewpoints toward customers. The beautiful packaging of the web and video design, and the humor imparted by Marie and her co-teachers really do deliver the information in a far more palatable way than other online business development programs. The program strikes a good balance between covering beginner and intermediate fundamentals while still delivering advanced insights. B-School covers the strategy, principles, and technical aspects of online marketing while sticking to core money-making fundamentals and personal brand-building ideas without straying into technical tactics that will be short-lived in their usefulness."
"B-School made me take a few steps back to see what I would actually ENJOY doing WHILE making the money."
"Thank you for being an example of a spiritual woman entrepreneur who is thriving and serving with joy, love, and fun in your business! And stepping up to show the world that making money is fun and important not something we should shy away from!"
"I have NEVER felt so good about telling someone what my business is!"
"I've personally developed a stronger entrepreneurial eye. I can see opportunities for myself and for other people in business that I couldn't see before."
