B-School Overview

 What is B-School?

B-School is a 6-week online learning program for values-driven creatives who want to build a meaningful, profitable business online. Whether you want to turn your part-time gig into your full-time business, take your existing company to new heights, or start a business from scratch, B-School will help you get there.

Oh yeah, and the B stands for business. Though some of our students argue it stands for Bold, Brave, and Big-hearted.

 Where does the program take place?

Everything is online — no travel required.

You can go through the materials each week as they’re released, or slow things down and work at your own pace. Many students revisit B-School once a year to uplevel their business.

 How is B-School different from other online courses?

This program has been road-tested for 13 years with results from nearly 80,000 students in 650+ different industries worldwide.

B-School is action-oriented, purpose-driven, and transformative. We deeply care about you — our students. Because the internet is so full of noise, B-School is designed to be a focused environment where you can train with the best.

Instead of swamping you with heady business theories, B-School gives you a proven step-by-step roadmap to growing your profitable, purposeful business online.

If it doesn’t work for you? Get 100% of your money back when you show us your completed coursework by the refund deadline (in the second week of the live program).

You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

 What will I learn?

We outline the course breakdown, our core curriculum, and additional masterclasses included here.

But the power of B-School doesn’t lie in proprietary videos or secret formulas. All the information you could ever need to start and grow a business is available for free online, right now. As E.O. Wilson remarked, “We’re drowning in information, but starving for wisdom.”

If you’re not aware of what you need to know and apply to your business — and what you don’t — all the free information in the world won’t help. The real value is in the skills and capabilities you’ll develop, the risks you’ll take, and the relentless focus on accomplishing your dreams.

 What’s not covered in the program?

We outline the specific course breakdown, the core curriculum and additional masterclasses included here.

Broadly speaking, we don’t cover how to secure VC funding, bank loans, or investment capital. We also don’t cover anything dealing with manufacturing, distribution, choosing legal business structures, insurance, trademarking; or anything granular relating to legal, taxes, or liability. For all legal, insurance, and tax ad­vice, consult your attorney and your accountant.

 When’s the next session of B-School?

B-School registration opens on February 9, 2023. Once you join us, you can choose to go at your own pace throughout the year, or join thousands of other enrollees and finish the training in just 6 weeks. Many of our alumni take B-School every year to refocus and make even more progress on their dreams.

Who B-School's Perfect For

 Who’s right for B-School?

B-School is for values-driven creatives, freelancers, small business owners, and established and aspiring entrepreneurs.

If you:
  • Identify as a “self-starter.”
  • Want a distraction-free environment that prioritizes action and results.
  • Are an independent learner who doesn’t need a lot of handholding to get things done.
  • ​Trust yourself to experiment and learn by doing.
  • ​Know in your bones that everything is figureoutable.
  • ​Are ready to take control of your finances, your schedule, and your future.
  • ​Believe that focus, discipline, and hard work are the keys to business success.
Then B-School is perfect for you. Find out more here.

 Who’s not right for this program?

B-School isn’t right for everyone. We care about our students’ success and want you to make the best decision for you.
  • Prefer 1:1 coaching.
  • Want advice on legal, tax structures, raising VC funding, manufacturing, or distribution (we don’t cover these topics).
  • Are looking for a “plug and play” system to make money online. Our program requires creativity, risk, discernment, and hard work over time.
  • ​Need individualized feedback before taking action.
  • ​Let small decisions keep you stuck rather than dive in, get messy, and do the work.
Then B-School may not be the right fit, and that’s okay.

 Is B-School just for women?

No. In fact, a third of B-Schoolers are men or non-binary. While we’re proud of the tens of thousands of women entrepreneurs from around the world who are building their businesses with B-School, we welcome B-Schoolers of all genders. The content is not gender-specific, and everyone is welcome.

 Will B-School work for me if I don’t have a business?

Yes! B-School is ideal if you’re just starting out, because it’ll train you to think like an entrepreneur and avoid the costly mistakes even smart entrepreneurs make when launching their first business.

The included bonus program, Start The Right Business, walks you through exactly what you need to understand, know, and — most importantly — do in order to start the right business for you.

 My business is different — will this work for my industry?

We’re proud to have grads across 650+ industries in 165 countries and territories.

From fishing, farming, fashion, and flower delivery to clothing retailers, knitting shops, hooping festivals, designers, language instructors, app makers, tech companies, yogis, writers, and every flavor of speaker, author, coach, and consultant — the range of rich and diverse creatives we have in B-School is one of our distinct advantages.

No matter what you sell — products, services, or anything else — you must understand how to effectively share your message, attract and convert browsers into buyers, and create outstanding customer experiences.

Regardless of your industry, today’s economy demands that you learn how to build trust and create meaningful connections with other humans using the digital tools of entrepreneurship. So if you sell to humans, B-School can help.

 Will this work if I’m outside of North America?

Definitely. We have students in 165 countries and territories, from Belgium and Mongolia to South Africa and the South Pacific. The principles you’ll learn are universally applicable.

More importantly, the skills, habits, and confidence you’ll develop from this experience are transformative and transferrable and will benefit you for a lifetime.

 If English isn’t my first language, will B-School still work for me?

Absolutely! The concepts we teach aren’t limited to any one language. You’ll learn how to run a profitable, values-driven business, no matter where you live or what language you speak. The concepts and principles you’ll learn apply across cultures.

That said, we do teach the program in English, so it comes down to your personal comfort level with carrying over the lessons you learn in English into your native language.

 Do I need to be technically savvy to take B-School?

No. We had one student purchase her first laptop (ever) at 60 years old to do the program. As long as you’re hungry to learn, you’ll be fine.

 Can my partner and I take B-School together?

B-School is a single membership program. Meaning, one person per membership. If you’d like to do the program along with your partner, please enroll separately.

Tuition & Guarantee

 How much does B-School cost?

The tuition for B-School is $2,499 USD if you pay in full. Payment plans are available at $239 USD per month for 12 months.

B-School is an investment for any small business owner committed to growth, and we respect your investment. Here’s what a few B-Schoolers had to say about their experience…
“B-School was a HUGE commitment financially for me. I didn’t know anything about Marie Forleo. I was stalking and reading and watching everything to try to get a feel for the quality. I learned about Marie and her self-made path and gained a lot of respect for her. I was sold. I knew the quality would be amazing, I knew your team was putting in 200% effort. I felt like I would be taken care of and you would respect my money. I knew it would be a great investment, especially because we had lifetime access.”
Alison Lee

“I have an MBA and a decade of corporate experience and this program taught me something new in every module.”

 Do you offer a guarantee?

Yes. B-School comes with a 100% Money Back Guarantee. If you don’t feel it’s the right fit, submit your completed coursework by the second week of the live program and we’ll issue you a full refund. The reason we ask for your completed coursework is simple: if you do the work, you’ll get tremendous value. Please note that eligibility for a refund has a firm deadline and also applies to payment plans, which means you will be responsible for all payments after the refund deadline has passed.

 What types of payment do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. For pay-in-full orders ($2,499 USD), we also accept PayPal, Apple Pay, and Google Pay. We are not currently set up to receive checks, invoices, or bank transfers.

Last Little Details

 How is B-School different from free online resources?

There’s more free information available to more people on every imaginable subject, including business, than ever before in human history. But if you’re not aware of what you need to know and what’s just a shiny object that won’t move your business forward, all the free information in the world won’t help.

It’s not about access to a set of hidden videos or secret formulas. It’s about leveraging your unique strengths and doing the right work to bring your dream business to life.

Putting yourself in B-School means putting yourself in an environment designed to help unleash your full potential.

 How do you support students as they work through the training?

For the 6-week duration of the live program, you can join our B-School Mentor Coaches for group Office Hours every Thursday. These professional coaches — all successful business owners themselves — will answer common questions about the course material to help you stay focused on growth.

After the 6 weeks are up, you’ll have year-long access to the recordings, plus access to thousands of students’ questions, along with word-for-word answers from Marie in our Answer Vault.

 Will I speak with or get feedback directly from Marie?

We can’t promise that. Marie delivers her best advice and strategies in the B-School core trainings. To be clear, this is not a one-on-one coaching program. It’s a group learning experience, so in addition to the trainings, you’ll get additional support from our B-School Mentor Coaches during the 6-week live portion of the course.

 Will I get a certificate or official course credit?

No. B-School is intentionally unaccredited and informal. If you need a certificate of completion, badge, or official course credits, this program is not for you.

 What if I have another question not listed here?

Consumer Testimonials. As with any business-related program, your results using B-School may vary from these consumer testimonials. Your results will be based on many variables, such as your level of effort, business acumen, personal qualities, knowledge, skills, and a host of other factors. Since these factors differ for each individual, we cannot guarantee your success, results, or income level, nor are we responsible for your success or failure. B-School is not a “get rich quick scheme.” It takes lots of time, effort, and dedication. We believe that we provide you a great toolbox to achieve your desired results, and these grads agree.
