These B-Schoolers made their
dream business a reality.
Before joining B-School I was pretty brave, and late in life I had started my own beauty brand label. Sales very quickly took off on Amazon, and while I felt on top of the world for having my own profitable business after only a few months of launching it, I felt that the potential was IMMENSE, and I knew I had to be braver. What got me to invest in B-School, and consequently expand my business, was ONE priceless video I saw of Marie saying that to be a pro, you need to go pro. That’s when I had my aha moment – buying B-School is something that a pro would do. I pulled out my credit card and used it to invest in my professional future.
The thought of having access to an online school that was not as serious or stuck up as college, but was still completely credible, made me hopeful.
When I started selling my skin care products on Amazon in July 2013, I was selling an average of 30 products a month. In 2015 I had gone up to about 6,000 products a month. Now we move about 12,000 units every month and customers are raving about our products and customer service. I started selling ONE product, then I expanded to a more cohesive line. Now I not only sell on Amazon but on my own website. I have distributors. AND THE BIGGEST THING is that I went from outsourcing my manufacturing and packaging to bringing it in-house.
I have created this new business from nothing in my late 30’s. Pretty awesome if you mistakenly think that getting older slows you down. It’s quite the opposite: you get wiser and make better decisions as you age. Finding Marie and doing her awesome B-School is one of those wise decisions that I will always be proud of.
I think the most value that Marie has given me is confidence that I can do it, and enough “force” to get me into action. As to how my personal life has changed since B-School: I had awesome vacations to Italy, Colorado, Key West, New York and more. I am able to send my two kids to every camp and activity they want. My company has expanded so much that I convinced my husband to quit his job and join me in this venture, and we’ve been working together since 2015.
To this day I still watch all of Marie’s episodes of MarieTV, I refer back to B-School when I am stuck in making a decision, and I am just so very grateful she exists and is making a difference in this world. To Marie!!! <3
