Oh yeah, and the B stands for business. Though some of our students argue it stands for Bold, Brave, and Big-hearted.
Everything is online — no travel required.
You can go through the materials each week as they’re released, or slow things down and work at your own pace. Many students revisit B-School once a year to uplevel their business.
This program has been road-tested for 14 years with results from nearly 80,000 students in 650+ different industries worldwide.
B-School is action-oriented, purpose-driven, and transformative. We deeply care about you — our students. Because the internet is so full of noise, B-School is designed to be a focused environment where you can train with the best.
Instead of swamping you with heady business theories, B-School gives you a proven step-by-step roadmap to growing your profitable, purposeful business online.

We outline the course breakdown, our core curriculum, and additional masterclasses included here.
But the power of B-School doesn’t lie in proprietary videos or secret formulas. All the information you could ever need to start and grow a business is available for free online, right now. As E.O. Wilson remarked, “We’re drowning in information, but starving for wisdom.”
If you’re not aware of what you need to know and apply to your business — and what you don’t — all the free information in the world won’t help. The real value is in the skills and capabilities you’ll develop, the risks you’ll take, and the relentless focus on accomplishing your dreams.
We outline the specific course breakdown, the core curriculum and additional masterclasses included here.
Broadly speaking, we don’t cover how to secure VC funding, bank loans, or investment capital. We also don’t cover anything dealing with manufacturing, distribution, choosing legal business structures, insurance, trademarking; or anything granular relating to legal, taxes, or liability. For all legal, insurance, and tax advice, consult your attorney and your accountant.
The next enrollment period starts February 8th, 2024, so make sure you get on the waitlist now!
Once you join us, you can choose to go at your own pace throughout the year, or join thousands of other enrollees and finish the training in just 6 weeks. Many of our alumni take B-School every year to refocus and make even more progress on their dreams.

B-School isn’t right for everyone. We care about our students’ success and want you to make the best decision for you.
Then B-School may not be the right fit, and that’s okay.
No. In fact, a third of B-Schoolers are men or non-binary. While we’re proud of the tens of thousands of women entrepreneurs from around the world who are building their businesses with B-School, we welcome B-Schoolers of all genders. The content is not gender-specific, and everyone is welcome.
Yes! B-School is ideal if you’re just starting out, because it’ll train you to think like an entrepreneur and avoid the costly mistakes even smart entrepreneurs make when launching their first business.
The included bonus program, Start The Right Business, walks you through exactly what you need to understand, know, and — most importantly — do in order to start the right business for you.
We’re proud to have grads across 650+ industries in 165 countries and territories.
From fishing, farming, fashion, and flower delivery to clothing retailers, knitting shops, hooping festivals, designers, language instructors, app makers, tech companies, yogis, writers, and every flavor of speaker, author, coach, and consultant — the range of rich and diverse creatives we have in B-School is one of our distinct advantages.
No matter what you sell — products, services, or anything else — you must understand how to effectively share your message, attract and convert browsers into buyers, and create outstanding customer experiences.
Regardless of your industry, today’s economy demands that you learn how to build trust and create meaningful connections with other humans using the digital tools of entrepreneurship. So if you sell to humans, B-School can help.
Definitely. We have students in 165 countries and territories, from Belgium and Mongolia to South Africa and the South Pacific. The principles you’ll learn are universally applicable.
More importantly, the skills, habits, and confidence you’ll develop from this experience are transformative and transferrable and will benefit you for a lifetime.
Absolutely! The concepts we teach aren’t limited to any one language. You’ll learn how to run a profitable, values-driven business, no matter where you live or what language you speak. The concepts and principles you’ll learn apply across cultures.
That said, we do teach the program in English, so it comes down to your personal comfort level with carrying over the lessons you learn in English into your native language.
No. We had one student purchase her first laptop (ever) at 60 years old to do the program. As long as you’re hungry to learn, you’ll be fine.
B-School is a single membership program. Meaning, one person per membership. If you’d like to do the program along with your partner, please enroll separately.
The tuition for B-School is $2,499 USD if you pay in full. Payment plans are available at $239 USD per month for 12 months.
B-School is an investment for any small business owner committed to growth, and we respect your investment. Here’s what a few B-Schoolers had to say about their experience…
Yes. Each year, we hold a dynamic scholarship program. We’ve awarded more than $730,000 in gifted tuition. To be notified of our scholarship details when they’re available, enter your name and email here.
Important note: Pay attention and read our emails when you receive them. The scholarship program is only open for a few days, so prioritize our emails and read them thoroughly.
Yes. B-School comes with a 100% Action Taker's Money Back Guarantee. If you don’t feel it’s the right fit, submit your completed coursework by the second week of the live program and we’ll issue you a full refund. The reason we ask for your completed coursework is simple: if you do the work, you’ll get tremendous value. Please note that eligibility for a refund has a firm deadline and also applies to payment plans, which means you will be responsible for all payments after the refund deadline has passed.
We accept all major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express, as well as Apple Pay and Google Pay. PayPal, Klarna, Affirm, and AfterPay are also available for full-pay customers only. We are not currently set up to receive checks, invoices, or bank transfers.
There’s more free information available to more people on every imaginable subject, including business, than ever before in human history. But if you’re not aware of what you need to know and what’s just a shiny object that won’t move your business forward, all the free information in the world won’t help.
It’s not about access to a set of hidden videos or secret formulas. It’s about leveraging your unique strengths and doing the right work to bring your dream business to life.
Putting yourself in B-School means putting yourself in an environment designed to help unleash your full potential.
For the 6-week duration of the live program, you can join our B-School Mentor Coaches for group Office Hours every Thursday. These professional coaches — all successful business owners themselves — will answer common questions about the course material to help you stay focused on growth.
After the 6 weeks are up, you’ll have year-long access to the recordings, plus access to thousands of students’ questions, along with word-for-word answers from Marie in our Answer Vault.
We can’t promise that. Marie delivers her best advice and strategies in the B-School core trainings. To be clear, this is not a one-on-one coaching program. It’s a group learning experience, so in addition to the trainings, you’ll get additional support from our B-School Mentor Coaches during the 6-week live portion of the course.
No. B-School is intentionally unaccredited and informal. If you need a certificate of completion, badge, or official course credits, this program is not for you.
