What makes B-School so awesome?
It’s no secret that B-School is a very popular program amongst online entrepreneurs. Over eight years of launches and delivery, Marie Forleo has delivered the program to 44,000 students who have come from 130 different countries. From a more personal experience, B-School changed the way that I show up in my business (and is the main reason that I didn’t quit my business long ago).
Yes, it was a huge investment for me at the time (my earnings were $600 in the first six months). But going through B-School was an invaluable experience and I’ve definitely made the return on investment a thousand times over and more!
Now you might have heard many of these stories and experiences before (I know I’m not the only one who credits B-School for some amazing online business success) but might still be wondering: what makes B-School so awesome?
So today, I want to share my perspective with you (coming from many years as a professional trainer and e-Course expert).
High quality tools and resources
There’s no wonder why B-School is such a successful program when you get into the dashboard and see all of the high quality tools and resources available to members. Seriously, Marie doesn’t do anything by halves!
B-School is definitely a premium program and everything about the course is luxe. The membership site has seamless navigation, the videos are uber professional and the worksheets (or Fun Sheets as Marie calls them) are practical and powerful.
The lessons cover everything you need for online business success including: profit plan, website, communication, list-building, offerings and marketing. Plus there are some really amazing bonus trainings (my personal favourite is the ‘How to grow from six to seven figures).
Now this doesn’t mean that the course just looks the part, B-School has both style and substance. The video content is packed with so much content and information that you will be pausing to scribble notes every five seconds. And then racing around your office to start implementing her tips right away!
While there is so much goodness in B-School, the content is all broken into modules so it isn’t overwhelming. The membership also includes the functionality to ‘track your progress’ as well as a very interactive course map to help you see where you are and where you’re heading.
The thing that stands out the most from the tools and resources is that Marie really knows her audience. There isn’t a piece of content that isn’t fully relatable or super valuable and this shows me that she’s made every choice with her ideal participant in mind. Overall, B-School is the highest quality program that I’ve ever done!
Caters to all learning styles
So now that we know about the high quality tools and resources, what else makes B-School so awesome? Coming from the experience of being a professional trainer (in my corporate background) and as an e-Course expert, I know how important it is to cater to all learning styles when designing your e-Course.
The three main learning styles of adults are: visual, auditory and kinaesthetic.
Visual learners need to see what is going on, they like reading, watching short videos and enjoy looking at photos or diagrams. They may not talk much, dislike listening for too long and can be easily distracted. B-School caters to visual learners with video content.
Auditory learners learn by listening. They love to talk, are attracted to sound and love music and prefer to hear things rather than read them. B-School caters to auditory learners with the option to download the course content in audio form and this also means you can learn while you walk the dog, work-out at the gym or commute to your day-job.
Kinaesthetic learners learn by doing. B-School caters to kinaesthetic learners in lots of ways including the fun sheet PDFs which encourage participants to ‘do the work’ as well as the inclusion of community forums that encourage accountability.
I have no doubt that the ability to cater for all learning styles is a huge reason why B-School has been delivered to 35,000 people over the last eight years.
I mentioned before that the program includes a community forum and that’s another big thing that makes B-School so awesome!
When I first signed up for B-School, I had no like-minded community surrounding me. I didn’t grow up in a family that were entrepreneurs. None of my friends were entrepreneurs. I had no-one to talk to who really understood me and I certainly had no real-life examples of online business success.
Not only did I not have any role models whose success felt achievable, I didn’t even have one entrepreneurial friend to sit down and have a coffee with.
Enter B-School and I now have an international and national support crew (plus a group of very local and very close business besties who I CAN sit down and have coffee with).
This might not seem like a big deal but I know how many women struggle to connect with other like-minded women and I know what the impact can be when you don’t have that strong support team of women who just really get you.
So the fact that B-School works to cultivate community is really important.
And on a more professional note, having a community to encourage accountability is a really important factor of successful e-Course delivery.Group connections inspire action. Click To Tweet
Huge amount of support
Online learning is a powerful tool but we’ve all heard of people who sign up for courses and ‘fall behind’ or don’t implement the work. I’ve come to realise that this is an inevitable part of running e-Courses but I also believe that there are strategies and support that you can implement to counteract this. And the support Marie offers is definitely a factor in what makes B-School so awesome!The more support, the more success! Click To Tweet
Apart from the incredible content and the community forum, B-School has so much more support to offer. This support includes a whole range of videos and downloads to support you in getting started with the course and ‘following through’, a resources page curated with all of the best tools to help you to do all the things you could ever need to do in your business and an ‘answer vault’ page where Marie answers the top questions asked for each lesson of the course.
And if the course content isn’t enough, Marie has a mini-course called ‘Start The Right Business’ to support you if you’re feeling stuck on the ‘right’ business for you.
As well as personally running ‘Office Hours Calls’, Marie also has ‘Mentor Coaches’ in the Facebook community. These fellow small business owners bring expertise like graphic design, tech and development, copywriting and e-commerce (adding a whole other level of support!) It really is above and beyond!
And finally, if you don’t want to take my word for what makes B-School so awesome then head on over here and check out hundreds of other reviews (how cool is the functionality to sort testimonials into experience level, growth goals, industry and location?)
