There’s nothing that bothers me more than the idea that you should cast aside your financial concerns in favor of going for your passions. This is often heralded in the personal growth and life-coaching worlds, but it makes no sense. We can’t follow our passions over the long-term if it’s not financially sustainable to do so!
I’ve seen again and again with women entrepreneurs that often the most meaningful work we can do isn’t lucrative, or even breaking even. Sometimes our highest quality work – work that’s really fabulous and serving people – also isn’t lucrative or breaking even. That’s because we haven’t gotten the product, the marketing, or the business model design right.
I dealt with that frustrating reality in the first couple years of my work. I could see my work was high quality, and looking around among my colleagues, I could see it was unique. But it just wasn’t finding traction with an audience.
I had some things to learn about marketing, and technology, and product development to make that happen. So I went out and learned – with Marie Forleo’s B-School being one of the main ways I did so.
You might think my actual MBA degree would have been enough, but that taught me more about how to run a large-scale, established company. For starting up a small business, I needed a different kind of training, the kind that B-School provided.
All this to say, financial concerns and worry on the entrepreneurial path are not signs of weakness or irrational concerns. They are very real, very rational concerns. They simply need to be met with good training.
B-School is great for learning how to find that sweet spot of overlap between money and meaning. The bonus sessions I’m providing will go even further to build on what you learn, to design and execute a profitable business model.
When you enroll in B-School and take the two quick steps below, you’ll receive special resources & training from me to help you build your business.
After B-School finishes, we’ll come together as a smaller community for special webinars and interactive sessions on these topics:
If you are an entrepreneur – or aspiring to be one – I hope you’ll check out B-School. It’s an incredible 8-week training program that will enable your business to thrive. B-School is open for registration, but only for another week, so this is the time to sign up. Learn all about B-School, hear about grads’ experiences, and get your questions answered here.
