These B-Schoolers made their
dream business a reality.
Before B-School I was struggling to make ends meet, making a Junior salary at a design agency in London, not having enough left over at the end of the month to pay for my student loans let alone to go home to visit my family back in Portugal. For someone who was always a big dreamer, I felt trapped. I couldn’t see how climbing the corporate ladder could make my dreams come true. Hell I couldn’t even see how I could get rid of my debt. It all felt very hopeless and suffocating. I needed to find another way.
Marie had made it clear through her videos that running an online business was going to be the way out for me, the path to my dreams coming true, I just had no idea if I had what it takes. I already knew that I wanted to be a freelance graphic designer and was already designing for a living. I just needed to figure out how to sell it to other people.
B-School started working for me before I had even signed up. In a video during the launch Marie suggested that we finish this sentence: “Wouldn’t it be great if” to which I said: Wouldn’t it be great if I magically got enough freelance clients for logo designs to make cart close? In 10 days, I made the $2,000 and I was in. I just knew in my bones I was in for the ride of my life.
In 10 months, I hit the 6 figure mark, through helping 100 entrepreneurs get their brand and website online. I also, in that first year of B-School, made my best friends to this day.
I moved back home to Portugal with my husband because I was now location independent and started to build a team. Fast forward 4 years and I run a 10 person design agency, working with huge names like Hay House, Michael Port, Lewis Howes, Danielle LaPorte, and so many others. I travel once a month to wherever I want be it an event, a mastermind, or a holiday for fun. I have spoken in front of 3,000 people sharing my message, worked with my heroes, and have my work featured in a book.
I get to live my dreams, love my work, and have my heart so filled with gratitude I feel like it might burst. Before B-School I felt trapped in the corporate rat race, feeling unfulfilled and hopeless. After B-School I get to share my special gift with the world and through doing that, get to live a life beyond my wildest dreams.
