These B-Schoolers made their
dream business a reality.
I have a master’s degree and was working for an insurance company while teaching yoga. Then my husband got a job offer in the US and I decided to take the next step and start something new, in a new country, in a new “world.” B-School was a great opportunity to build a business idea and bring it to fruition step by step. So I said, “YES,” and opened the door that was offered to me. With the support and the teaching of B-School, I built my new business from scratch.
We’ve been on the market since 2015, and our sales have grown more than 150%, and we are selling worldwide. We also got an invitation from “Shark Tank” original Kevin Herrington, and he invited us for an assessment and is featuring our product in a US DRTV campaign.
B-School gave me a very good picture and assessment where my skills where and what I needed to do to improve. It helped me stay focused, structured, and precise with my goals and customer profiles. I’m still learning every day, and every business day has something new to offer.
With B-School, I learned to be open to challenges and not to give up. Before, I was always looking to what others were doing and never really felt confident because I always thought that others would do it better. And I never will forget Marie’s words: “What if Jimi Hendrix or some other musicians would have said, ‘Why should I be a musician? There are thousands of musicians.’” We would have missed a lot, wouldn’t we?
