B-School Case Study

Reena, how did you feel before joining Marie Forleo’s B-School?

Lost, unsure, stagnant, overwhelmed, and confused.

Why did you feel that way?

I was going into my second year of business and did not know what direction I needed to take to move my business forward. I needed something more than what I knew. My biggest pain point was that I was out of ideas on how to market. I ran online promotions and I was at a point where I needed to do something different. I knew I had taken the business to the best place it could be, and needed guidance. Although I had support from business mentors, including the team in India and Australia, I still felt alone.

How did B-School help you change your business and life?

The biggest thing I got out of B-School, was to start before you’re ready. I followed that advice from the pre-work. There was one particular meeting that changed my path forever. Today, I’m in my business full-time, and I’m moving out of the city and to the mountains. The other big thing, is the online community. There’s a group of us in Sydney that are now meeting monthly as a mastermind group to keep each other on track and accountable. The support from the community is unbelievable. That alone will change your life.

What are some big wins that you produced after B-School?

The pre-work from B-School alone allowed me to set up a very important meeting with the Indian tourism governing body. That meeting allowed me to build my brand with them. They sponsored a trip to India for myself and a travel writer friend to showcase our experiences. I’m more excited about not just sharing my success but showcasing a different style of travel to India to the world. I’m so grateful that I can do this every day. My dream has finally come true!

I was also featured in a national newspaper in their travel section which brought in a number of inquiries and bookings. Marie is right—the money isn’t going to roll in straight away. You need to put in the hard work at the beginning, but it’s worth it.

How do you feel now?

Free, happy, excited, pumped, and clear.

Describe your life after B-School.

I feel in control of my life. I’m so excited to start my new life in my business and with my new hubby living in the mountains, surrounded by nature with friends and family visiting us.

B-School is a life changer. I still haven’t finished all the modules, as I have been doing them at my own pace, but if you make a few changes, implement things that really stand out for you, you will see the results of your hard work, maybe straight away, some maybe not, but be patient, it takes time, and it will happen!
