In this day and age, blogs, videos, and memes litter my news feed on a daily basis. But the one that stands out from the crowd and always resonates with me is the author, coach, and blogger Marie Forleo and her training/coaching program called B-School. So here’s an honest B-School Review from my team at Mission Entrepreneur.
Marie is a creative soul who has vast experience with business start-ups from a very young age. She has done it all (and been reviewed by them all). From professional dancing to writing a book, from being an Oprah SuperSoul to creating a weekly video segment called Marie TV, she has experienced both the good and bad sides of entrepreneurship. She shares her experiences in an authentic and humorous way to help entrepreneurs get ahead in their business. Her efforts and experienced culminated in a course she calls “B-School.”
B-School is an eight-week, interactive, video-based training program that teaches smart, effective online marketing strategies to business owners who want more sales and more impact from their online presence. I love that the training consists of weekly modules, with accompanying videos and worksheets. While packed with resources and training, it doesn’t feel overwhelming and it allows adequate time to work on each topic.
However, my favorite thing about B-School isn’t the training (although that is absolutely worth every penny). What takes B-School above the top is the network that you develop and gain access to for life.
In my opinion, this network alone is worth the price. New business owners often fail when they don’t have a strong community rooting them on (even I need advice along the way…frequently I might add). Whether it’s looking for recommendations, you’re ready to out-source and need an affordable and reputable option, you want tips on standing out from the crowd or DIY, and how-to instructions to managing social media, the B-School community is active and responsive to your needs.
There is no fee to retake the course. So you get access to B-School for LIFE (and it gets great updates each year)! Each student interacts with other students and the Team Forleo staff within a series of private Facebook pages. Additionally, every student has access to live office hours with Marie Forleo.
Is B-School is Worth The Price?
And as you might have guessed, this experience comes with a sizable price tag (ringing in at $1999). This is a serious commitment. So, when I am asked for an honest review if B-School is worth it, I completely understand where this is coming from. Start by answering the following.
- In 1 year, where do you want your business to be…Do you have the skills and expertise to succeed?
- Do you have an executable business plan with a community of on-call experts, ready to coach you?
- Can you benefit from a business tax-credit or educational expense?
- Do you believe that no one is as committed to your business as you?
- Do you need guidance in a few niche areas and would benefit from a business coach (but don’t want to pay al-la-carte)?
- Do you thrive when surrounded by a community of like-minded and successful people cheering you on?
After giving these questions some serious thought, ask yourself what is stopping you? But don’t stop there. Look for the best BONUS or AFFILIATE offer that adds even more value to your experience.
So, my honest review of B-School is if you have a business vision and you need some support to get there, this IS a fantastic investment in your success.
You will never go broke when you invest in yourself!
The real question is, how much are you willing to invest in yourself?
