These B-Schoolers made their
dream business a reality.
I’ve always been a creative person and shied away from the actual “business” side of my business; anything to do with numbers and projections, marketing and funnels I wanted nothing to do with. My biggest struggle was convincing myself that I needed to learn all of these things, even if I can afford to pay someone, because I still need to know if the decisions other people are making about my business are in line with what I believe, and where I want to be in 3, 5, 10 years.
B-School gave me the confidence to learn WordPress, Mailchimp, and use social media to promote my business by creating opt-ins and FB ads to grow my list and increase sales. I also learned about SEO, and how crucial marketing is when developing a product.
My first round of B-School reinforced my value of service to my students and customers and taught me how to educate and entertain them while building trust, before ever trying to sell to them anything.
While going through the course I produced and launched my own yoga DVD, tripled my list during the launch, and gained a ton of confidence to contact big fitness outlets to carry my DVD. It wound up in the biggest fitness video catalog as a “staff favorite,” and now all my videos are available to stream on the two biggest yoga sites online.
I’ve continued to go back to the lesson modules and years later have launched an online yoga with weights teacher training, a 28-day mind/body wellness program and a nutrition line – I would NEVER have been able to do this without all of the tools Marie taught me.
I’ve put all the tools I’ve learned in B-School to work and they’ve helped me grow my wellness business to over 6 figures by opening doors to opportunities I may not have gone after if it wasn’t for the training and encouragement I received throughout the program.
I think Marie is a business genius – able to take anyone from where they are to where they want to be. For sure she’s got the brains, but she’s also got a HUGE heart and really cares about each and every member of her community; I feel so blessed to be a part of it.
