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 now 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 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 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 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

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 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 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 has been filled for 2016. Registration will re-open again in 2017.
