These B-Schoolers made their
dream business a reality.
I had a chiropractic practice in Toronto, where there was a ton of competition from other natural/alternative health care modalities. I was feeling stuck and disempowered. I was scared financially. There was a lot on the line (my house included), and I had two young kids at the time. My (now-ex) husband was relying on me to “fix” things. Traditional avenues were just not doing it. So I went searching.
One year after finishing B-School, I was introduced to the new business that has become my passion, and in which I’m now earning a monthly six-figure (and growing) income. Ninety percent of that business is delivered online, and EVERYTHING I learned in B-School has come into play.
Within three months of starting my current business, I had grown quickly enough to secure a founding position in my company. Now, within four years of starting my business, I’ve grown to a level that only 2% of my company will ever achieve. I’ve helped bring holistic health care into 8,000+ homes. I’m earning a solid six-figure income each month, and it’s growing. I’m one of 20 Canadian founders in my company, and I lead a large team of (mainly) women who are stretching to reach their own business and financial goals. I’ve spoken from a stage to over 4,000 people, and those opportunities are expanding. I gave up my chiropractic practice, and work my business around my now teenage kids. And I have a business that I can run from my laptop anywhere in the world. I’ve done a ton of personal growth work over the last four years to gain the skills to step into a major leadership position, but the business skills that first took me down this road started with B-School.
Some of the most successful women in my business also went through B-School at one time or another, which I find fascinating and so telling. So trusting my instinct back in 2011 when I first took B-School was the single greatest business decision that I ever made.
