“Once a Bschooler, always a Bschooler.” The email read. Marie Forleo’s team are lovely women, and when I saw the letter, I smiled.
“You know it!” I thought. I’m thrilled, cus you know I review and participate with the community every year. This will be my 3rd run.
Why this post?
A lot of people have been asking me about Marie Forle’s Bschool program because they know I’ve done it, hustling through the 6 weeks and getting results… So I know a lot of you on the fence need a bit of an external perspective from a critical girl who’s been around the block.
What is Bschool?
Bschool is an online course developed by Marie Forleo (and formerly by Laura Roeder). They are marketing and social media mavens, mega smarty pants and fun chicas. Bschool is a 6 week online business and marketing course designed for people who want clarity and results in 6 weeks.
Did I get something out of the course?
- Clarity around my business and business offerings
I was just a business owner sapling when I did this course for the first time in 2011, and even as I had studied with other marketing and business folks and have a lot of formal education and work experience under my belt I loved the clarity I got as a result of this program.
I help people get clear every day, but I can’t do it for myself as effectively – BIG surprise (not). We need someone to push us and help us stretch, and this course did that for me.
- A support structure to work inside of
Aka I was held accountable (by awesomesause Emelie Archer, who I met because of this course) You partner with someone who SHOULD (and if they don’t email me) hold you to your word about what you’re out to create in your business. Same goes for you.
Without a support structure, we often sell out because of the million things we have going on in our lives daily, and that’s not what this is about.
- Business training
The how‘s of many marketing components important to master.
Like I said, I’ve studied a lot of stuff before Marie. But I LOVED her no-nonsense approach to everything. It’s simplified enough for even the most beginner of beginners and still has goods for those who’ve been exposed to things like it in the past.
Marie has a great way of doing things, which is her own flavor and it works. The course is fun, educational and stretching.
- Community, Business ops and Partnerships
The people in this course are really really great. I not only made lifelong friends but also scored a ton of business. The community is open to supporting one another, so you get a lot help from others with offerings, videos, sites, etc.
- Lifetime access to the course content
Like I said, I review every year. I don’t do EVERY workpage because I don’t need to. But I absolutely watch the videos, redo things I need to shed more light on, and play with the community.
Do I recommend this course?
Yes, if you’re:
- starting an online business and need help!
- a self motivator
- going to USE the course and do it the way it’s meant to be done, aka don’t buy it and do nothing
- ask your community for help when you need it
In other words, Marie is all sweet and fun, but she kicks ass and is very focused and directed; there is a lot of material. There is WORK TO DO.
If you do the work, you’ll gain valuable insight into the how’s of effective marketing. But watch for the common pitfall of trying to be Marie. We need to find our own flavor of things.
I think highly of this program because I used it fully and apply the principles in my business daily.
So hurry and sign up!
