“Why did you take BSchool – you’ve already got 10+ years of biz experience… you’ve got a 6-figure biz… you actually have an MBA from a REAL Business School… you TEACH mindful marketing and conscious business!”
Just as a yogi finds a guru to deepen their practice…
And the pianist hires a teacher to refine their performance…
Smart entrepreneurs seek out mentors who challenge them and shorten the learning curve to reach new levels in their business.
So here’s a deep dive into my experience with RHH BSchool, why I plan to take it again, and how The Yogipreneur is partnering with BSchool for 2013!
What Is RHH BSchool?
Rich Happy & Hot BSchool is the “the world’s first online business school for women entrepreneurs”. This completely online, video based training program teaches you how to use modern online marketing to grow your online presence and your business.
BSchool is the brain-child of the brilliant and hilarious Marie Forleo. Her mission is to help women “Change Your Life, Change The World”. What I love about Marie is she walks her talk… there are a TON of people teaching “make money online” and very few who have the biz to back it all up. She’s been featured on Oprah, she’s friends with Richard Branson, and is amazingly transparent how she reached a 7-figure biz (**hint – a lot of heart, hustle, and about 10ish years!**).
Who Is RHH BSchool For?
BSchool is for entrepreneurs who are clear on their business, but not clear on how to put all the pieces together to effectively sell more and market better online.
It’s NOT for everyone. From what I’ve seen inside the BSchool community, the people who get the MOST out of BSchool have a business… meaning they already have something to offer. It can be a brick & mortar shop, a service based biz, or an online business. These entrepreneurs are super clear on their biz vision & goals and they are ready to grow their biz online.
I was thrilled to see so many women last year who had businesses at about the same level as mine (5+ years experience & 6-figures) who were taking BSchool to get even better at online marketing & sales.
I also saw a LOT of people who weren’t in the right program for them. If you don’t have a business — especially if you don’t have a clear idea of what business you want to be in — you’ll likely struggle with BSchool. BSchool won’t walk you though developing a business idea or business plan. And it isn’t a “magic bullet” promising an instant biz.
What I LOVED About BSchool
The #1 reason I took BSchool last year — I wanted to see how Marie did it. I was pretty sure I knew most of the content in the curriculum (hell – I teach lots of it in my own programs!) but I knew I would learn a TON from how Marie organized and delivered the program. First-class all the way — it totally upped my game with my own online programs.
The training is SPOT-ON. I practiced having a “Beginners Mind” — going through the entire program step by step, completing the worksheets, implementing strategies. Sure I had done lots of this before — but I knew there was always a level deeper I could take things.
I also knew that Marie was on top of what was ACTUALLY working in online marketing. At this point, I’ve invested thousands of dollars in different programs only to realize that the content was outdated. Honestly – as fast as things change online – things are outdated in less than a year. Marie shared openly what was working for her biz and the community was fantastic for learning what was working for others.
The community inside BSchool is pretty amazing. There are some freakin’ BRILLIANT women (and a few savvy men) inside this program. The Facebook group is amazing — any question you have, literally day or night, post it and get multiple thoughtful & insightful answers within minutes.
What I DIDN’T LOVE About BSchool
Honestly, there’s not a lot I didn’t love!
But here are a few things to be aware of if you’re considering BSchool.
The community is amazing — but it’s HUGE. Over 2,000 people are in the BSchool Facebook group. I’m assuming by the time this round gets started, there will be 2x as many. There are some people who attempt to use this group to promote their own stuff (which drives me insane) instead of using the community for support and feedback. And because it’s a community forum, not one that BSchool actively moderates, there is a lot of the blind leading the blind (inexperienced peeps giving advice).
Imagine your entire high school taking one class for 8 weeks. With just ONE teacher. Even though I think Marie does an amazing job with her Q&A calls — there are just way too many people in the program if you know you’ll need any 1×1 support (keep reading for my solution below).
It can be complete information OVERLOAD. BSchool provides a ton of tools & strategies to grow your biz — but I found many people to be completely overwhelmed when it came time to implement things. You can get through the weekly content and homework in 2 or so hours each week — but actual implementation takes time and can be confusing if you don’t have someone walking you through it all.
Why I’ll Be In BSchool for 2013!
Every year, there are a few books I re-read, programs I re-take, and strategies I review. Why? Because while there are a lot of “shiny objects” fighting for my attention, these core things keep me centered and focused on what I’m here to do in my biz.
BSchool is one of those programs I’ll revisit. In fact — I’ve reviewed the entire program at least once since it wrapped up last year just to see what other juicy nuggets I could pull out of it.
This year will be a bit different for my biz. I’ve gotten even more focused and refined with the direction for The Yogipreneur in the next year. And I have a passion project that I’m working on and will use BSchool to refine.
2013 Yogipreneur + BSchool Mastermind
In 2012, a funny thing happened. I found peeps from The Yogipreneur community in BSchool! And by the end of the program, I was working with several Yogipreneur BSchoolers 1×1 to integrate and implement everything they were learning.
So this time around, I’ve created an opportunity for you to get the MOST out of BSchool while getting the support and 1×1 attention you need. When you sign up for BSchool through my affiliate link, you’ll also be enrolled into The Yogipreneur + BSchool Mastermind (for FREE!)*.
The Yogipreneur + BSchool Mastermind will be an intimate, PRIVATE group designed to give you the personal attention you need to make BSchool a great investment in your biz. You’ll get:
- Group Mastermind Calls — In addition to Marie’s weekly BSchool Q&A calls, we’ll have 4 calls with our Mastermind group to check-in with one another, see how things are progressing, and get laser-focused support and feedback from me.
- Private Facebook Group — Instead of keeping up with thousands of other students, you’ll be in an intimate group of heart-centered entrepreneurs that my team and I will actively participate in throughout BSchool.
- 1×1 Strategy Session with Racheal — If all the above isn’t enough, you’ll get a 60 minute 1×1 strategy session with me! This is a graduation bonus that will be scheduled when convienent for both of us and must be used within 60 days of BSchool graduation.
