These B-Schoolers made their
dream business a reality.
After following Marie’s blog and videos for some time, and after failing quite a lot, I was somehow sure B-School was the answer I had been yearning to get. If you know the saying “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom,” those were the exact words to describe my feeling! My only way of getting into B-School at that time was by getting the scholarship, so I took every risk (including “I don’t care what my friends and colleagues would say if they ever found out about this video”). So I grabbed my smartphone and headphones, began talking to the camera, edited the video, uploaded to YouTube, and…. submitted!
The biggest surprise was what I call “the B-School effect” at work. Since the day I started implementing the Follow-Through Formula, I got better and better at handling my tasks that within a year, I landed my dream job. And here’s the thing: I was asked to take the position. The job consists of the many things I’ve been so passionate about, I have the independence to manage the project, so it’s like a place where I can practice all the lessons from B-School in real life.
Within a year and a half the project led to more exciting projects and pilot projects, involving a growing community of colleagues who are passionate, skillful, and talented. The environment also prioritizes work-life balance. I still have the time to create art and have a good time in and outside work. I’ve never been this satisfied at work, thanks to everything I learned in B-School!
B-School works not only for entrepreneurs but employees too! I experienced it firsthand, watching my projects flourish and hearing constant praise from my colleagues – all after enrolling in B-School. The proof speaks for itself!
