So you heard about Marie Forleo’s B-school…
Here’s my Marie Forleo B-School review, based on my experience as a longtime B-School student and past guest faculty teacher.
What is Marie Forleo B-School?
Obviously, no Marie Forleo B-school review is complete without an explanation of exactly WHAT B-School is… It stands for business school, but I think “B-School” sounds cooler though, don’tcha think?
Unlike most business schools though, you don’t come out with a degree and nothing to show for it… you come out with a business that works better.
Who is Marie Forleo’s B-School For?
Not to jump ahead in my Marie Forleo B-School review, but before we look at what kinds of results you can expect from B-School, we need to look at who will benefit the most.
Marie brought together the best experts to teach inside of B-School, and each module is designed to take a new or existing business through the steps to really leverage online marketing. The program is designed for the modern entrepreneur, man or woman, who is ready to start a new venture on the web or who has an existing product, service, or brick and mortar company and wants to make the most of the web to grow.
If you’re just getting started with your business, then you’ll love the “Start The Right Business” module that helps aspiring entrepreneurs decide what business to start, which is included in Marie Forleo’s Bschool.
So whether you’re a mom who wants to start a business on the site, or you’ve got an established business that could benefit from fresh perspectives about doing business in today’s day and age, you’ll absolutely benefit from B-school.
Why Bschool with Marie Forleo?
I signed up for Marie Forleo’s B-School because I knew there was a lot more I could be doing for my business, and I knew that a traditional business school wasn’t where I was going to learn it.
I wanted to get my online business foundation shored up, because I knew a lot of things but B-School really put everything into a step by step plan for me.
If you’ve done a lot of online courses, maybe you’ve done trainings where they told you this was the best thing since sliced bread but you never got results… it’s probably because you didn’t have the big picture action steps in place before you applied this specific strategy.
I’m thinking of things like Pinterest, SEO, Facebook Ads, all of these are great sources of traffic but you need a business foundation in place before you get into any of these.
Who is Leading Bschool?
When it comes to investing in yourself and your business, I have a pretty strict guideline. I only work with people who are successfully doing what I want to do, or have experience making what I want happen for their clients and customers.
Seems pretty straight forward, but there are tons of programs and books to choose from, so focusing in on those that are taught by people who are masters at their craft makes picking and choosing so much easier, and less stressful for me. Marie Forleo and her programs definitely fall into this category.
What I love about Marie Forleo is her ability to practice what she preaches. She’s been in business for over 10 years, she’s honed her marketing and coaching skills, and you’ll get a generous dose of both by participating in this round of B-School.
Here’s what the course covers in terms of content, and each week there are strategic coaching calls, reviews, and other goodies to help you implement what you learn. Weekly Modules Include the Six Pillars of Building Your Online Business:
- Profit Clarity
- Websites That Sell and Don’t Suck
- Slam Dunk Communication Plan
- List Building Mania
- How to Create Products and Services That Practically Sell Themselves
- Marketing Wisdom That Works Across Every Industry
Want to know exactly what each module covers and the specific additional training master classes inside the program? No problem, just click here to see the Marie Forleo B-School curriculum in depth.
There are also implementation weeks, so you don’t have to feel like you’re drinking from a water hose of information. This gives you a chance to put into practice everything you’re learning so that you can begin to reap the benefits even before the course is over.
Why Marie Forleo’s B-School is Not Like Other Programs
I’ve taken my fair share of online programs, and nothing compares to Marie Forleo B-School. From the community of go-getting men and women to the variety of businesses and backgrounds… it’s truly a sight to see Marie Forleo bring together such a great group.
Everyone in the program is ultra supportive of one another, and there even seems to have developed a B-School economy, with many people becoming partners or providers of services and products to each other.
Beyond the social aspect, which is a huge benefit and advantage that I haven’t seen in many other programs, Bschool really cuts to the chase.
There are a lot of online programs “padded” with extra videos and content to make them appear more valuable. That’s not the case with B-school, and the training videos are short enough to be watchable and digestible.
Another benefit of taking Marie Forleo’s business school is something that few programs offer: hands on support, advice, and critiques. If you often feel like you’re too close to your business to get some perspective, Marie will zero in on your challenges and give you clear advice. She’s got a keen intuition, and years of marketing experience to back it up.
Should You Buy Marie Forleo’s B-School?
Alright, so I’ve waxed poetic and gushed about Marie Forleo and B-School till the cows came home… now it’s time for you to decide if it’s right for you. Just because it’s a great program, it doesn’t mean that it’s the right choice for you right now depending on where you are in your business.
In my personal experience, it’s been the most beneficial to work with the leaders in their field. That definitely means Marie (did you know she was nominated for Marketer of the Year at the Digital Marketer conference?) and it absolutely applies to B-School.
If you’re on the fence or not sure if it’s the right investment for your business right now… take a step back, feel whether you’re anxious-excited or anxious-fearful. If you’re feeling fearful, then it might not be the right fit for you. That’s okay, there are times when it’s right and times when it’s not the right move.
If it’s more excited, and you’ve got the financial means to make this investment in your business… then it’s time to sign up for Marie Forleo’s B-School. I’ll be the first to welcome you aboard! If you’re not sure about the investment or what Marie Forleo B-School cost, I can definitely relate. It was a big investment for me, and I didn’t make the decision lightly.
But it has paid for itself back many times over, and I wouldn’t be where I am in my business without this training, support, and community.
B-School Opens For Enrollment on February 22nd, 2017!
What do you get when you sign up for Marie Forleo’s B-School through me? As the former tech trainer inside of B-School for the past few years, I know what it takes to implement the lessons of B-School from a technology standpoint.
I’m also the founder of a software company, AmbitionAlly where we design intuitive WordPress plugins for ambitious business owners.
That’s why this year, anyone who joins B-School through my partner link (which means I earn a commission and can in turn offer additional perks) will get:
1. Your very own fully-functional WordPress website
Which comes with 3 exclusive customizable designs to choose from. These are all B-School friendly themes, where you can swap out the images and add your own flair… without spending a ton on hiring a designer and developer and waiting months to have a website up and running.
Plus, because we know how important list building is for your business building efforts… We’ll pre-load your new website with a copy of our premium PopupAlly Pro plugin, so you can add as many beautiful opt-in and popup forms as you like.
Oh, and if you’re worried about customizing the look and feel of your site or pointing an existing domain over to this new site of yours… We’ve gone ahead and recorded simple how-to tutorials to walk you through exactly how to make changes to your new online home!
We’ve already done all the heavy lifting for you: you’ll just login to your brand new site and add your content and blog posts, and we’ll take care of your hosting costs for the next 12 months.
If you decide to continue to host your website with us after the year wraps up, it will be at an affordable monthly rate. But you’re also welcome to take your website with you to a different host at the end of the 12 months, it’s yours to keep!
How much is this bonus worth?
Well, if you were to pay for hosting of this caliber for a whole year, it would set you back $348. To purchase PopupAlly Pro, you’d spend another $99… And the cost of getting a website up can range from $50 for an off-the-shelf theme to $5000 for a fully-custom website.
We’re conservatively pricing the value of this bonus at $500, but the time and energy it will save you while trying to figure out the tech stuff is worth at least 10 times that.
2. Access to training courses!
By this, I mean 10 specific step-by-step online business building courses, and 3 years of live event recordings with talks from business owners at the top of their game.
B-School gives you the “alternative MBA training” you need to get your business off the ground online. These additional trainings compliment B-School and dive into specific topics that you’ll need to really take your business off the charts.
You’ll get short, actionable, results-oriented programs to get your first profitable Facebook ads set up, to getting a podcast in the “New and Noteworthy” on iTunes, or setting up your Google Analytics for maximum insights and decision-making power.
You’ll learn how to hire your first Virtual Assistant, how to optimize your site for the search engines, and the best way to host a successful webinar without breaking a sweat.
You decide which of these trainings to tackle next… and you’ve got access for an entire year, so there’s no rush to watch everything on day one. But this delivery method does encourage you to take action on what you learn, with new trainings being released on a quarterly basis.
Plus, you get access to the sharpest business minds as they take the stage at Off The Charts through our event recordings. Attendees paid hundreds of dollars to attend, and you get to learn directly from successful business owners like Derek Halpern, Sarah Jenks, Kimra Luna, Nikki Elledge Brown, Elizabeth DiAlto, Jadah Sellner, Jen Hansard, Nisha Moodley, and many more for free as a bonus.
Worth $997 if you were to purchase each course separately.
3. Ongoing coaching and accountability for 12 months.
I could keep on adding additional hours of tutorials and trainings or even more software tools… But at the end of the day, true business results happen when you take action.
That’s why I’m including ongoing bi-weekly accountability and quarterly group coaching for the next year. Because I know that when you have someone keeping you accountable to your goals, and you focus on the top 20% of activities that drive 80% of the results, you’ll succeed.
I’m not here to get you all pumped up and excited about your business, only to leave you hanging when the going gets tough.
When you sign up for B-School with me (at no additional cost to you) we’re in this together and you’ll be able to ask questions inside our members only Facebook group, participate in an accountability group with like-hearted entrepreneurs, and get on a live group coaching call with me each quarter.
This additional support is worth $500, but is likely to add a lot of momentum to your business growth and that’s priceless.
The sooner you gain traction in your business, the faster you’ll be able to scale, earn more, and hire others to help free you up to live the life you’ve always wanted.
That’s my ultimate goal for anyone who I take under my wing, and I’m excited to see how quickly you’ll hit the ground running with your fully functional website, targeted digital training, and ongoing accountability.
If you were to add up the value of each of the bonuses they’d come to $1962.
That’s the cost of B-School itself, and you’re getting everything I mentioned above at no additional cost when you click this link and sign up through me.
