Good for absolute beginners
Pros: Lifetime Access
Retake each year
Study at your own pace
Dip in and out during the year
Cons: It’s an intensive 8 week course (when doing it live) especially if you are working too.

No private Facebook group?
Ideal Customer: Beginners who have an idea of what business they want to start or for established businesses who want to go online..
Additional Comments: The world has changed a lot in the last ten months and businesses have had to quickly adapt to using online tools and marketing to survive. It will be interesting to see if B-School 2021 reflects this.

I enrolled in B-School back in 2017 and joined the B-School private Facebook group for new ‘students’ and then the main group at the end of the 8 weeks. There was a lot of invaluable help and support in both groups and was part of my reason for joining.

I also joined through an affiliate and therefore got ‘two courses’ for the price of one. ($2,000) Given the current climate the 2021 cost of $2,499 makes this quite an expensive course (on its own)

Glad I joined, not for everyone
Pros: The community is great, some of the topics really hit home and made a difference in my business
Cons: Some of the worksheets feel like busy work that don't bring you anywhere (not always true tho!) and there is very little access to the creator, HUGE group.
Ideal Customer: You've already got SOME business tools and ideas sorted, you're excited about what you do, and you don't really know the basics so have a lot of gaps to fill in.
Additional Comments: Business isn't always as linear as this, and there is a LOT of work to do to complete B-School. Not all of that work will bring you forward, so it can feel overwhelming, which is not helpful on this journey!

No longer recommending
Pros: High-quality videos
Cons: Lack of support for students in marginalized communities such as BIPOC and LGBTAIQ+. Lack of moderation left students exposed to ongoing bullying and hate speech.

Gaslighting.
Ideal Customer: Beginners who are cis white women and don't have a background in marketing/business.
Additional Comments: I used to be a big fan of Marie Forleo, and personally, B-School helped me quite a bit to get my business going.

However, she has allowed hate speech and bullying to occur within her community directed at BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ member. This was brought to her attention a number of times.

Her response was botched and she abandoned her group of over 30,000 entrepreneurs.

Based on these experiences over the last year and a half, I no longer recommend her programs. I am extremely disappointed. I expected a higher level of integrity and leadership from her.

Not worth it
Pros: I joined Bschool years ago but stayed active in the community until recently. The community can be vibrant at times and Marie is enthusiastic
Cons: The actual content is pretty basic and definitely not worth what she is charging. There's also rampant racism and other issues in the community and Marie did a TERRIBLE job responding to it. So bad that I now actively tell people not to join when initially highly recommended it.
Ideal Customer: At this point, no one. Skip it. Go check out aome replays on Creative Live and go from there.
Additional Comments: I did make some cool biz friends initially through Bschool, but again, that's not what I paid for

Great foundation for online business beginners
Pros: I love that you get lifelong access and every year there is the opportunity to do the course 'live'. As part of the course being 'live' again there are calls with Marie and she releases new bonuses.
Cons: For a course that is meant to be a one-stop-shop for new online business owners, there is limited information on social media, which isn't great since social media is a major marketing channel for most online businesses.
Ideal Customer: B-School is perfect for someone who wants to run a successful online business. It is great for a complete newbie but still can provide value for someone a bit further on in their business. T
Additional Comments: Completing the course in the 8 live weeks can be challenging. However, having lifetime access has allowed me to go back and look at something specific when I needed it. Personally, the biggest pro of the course was the Facebook Group. It was one of the best Facebook Groups I was in. However, Marie stopped running the group in 2020, which I feel is a great shame.

Nothing you can't find by reading a business book or using Google
Pros: Lifelong access.
Cons: The marketing is convincing, yet the product really isn't. It's really nothing new in my experience. I read another review saying Bschool is "an extremely overpriced list of resources" and I couldn't agree more. I found it to be a disappointment. Also, the way some issues in the community were handled was really, really disappointing as well. Can't say I'm a fan of either the product or Marie herself.
Ideal Customer: Someone with zero knowledge on online marketing or starting a business. But honestly, I'd recommend reading a few good books on these topics over joining Bschool.

Very beginner focused course
Pros: Back then I felt it was very customer centered and aligned with my values
Cons: It advertises as being a product for everyone yet the information is very basic especially for that price point. It over simplified many marketing and business concepts
Ideal Customer: Beginner to online business

A lot of value, material and support
Pros: The quality of the material and support provided are very high
Cons: At least when I enrolled it was ideal for service businesses more than product based ones
Ideal Customer: Service based businesses for sure. But if you want to dive deep into yourself, your why and your vision anyway, also for personal reasons, is excellent

An Extremely Overpriced List of Resources
Pros: The videos are high quality
Cons: The course contains very basic information that can be learned by reading a few business books and watching a couple videos on youtube. Marie repackages popular business knowledge, creates fancy videos and worksheets and charges $2000 for it. It’s useful knowledge and it sure helps with building a business, but there is NO reason to spend that much money on it. If you buy around 20 books, you most likely get the same value for much less.

The office hour calls and lesson comments don’t add much value either. I asked a few questions hoping to get some actionable advice, but what they tell you is so generic that it is barely helpful. In Module One you craft your Ideal Client Avatar, and for most questions you are told to think about “her” and what she would want. That’s it. (And you also get some motivational fluff packed in between) It makes sense, because every business is unique and they aren’t really in a position to give you specific advice.

The community is nice, but it’s a facebook group and there’s free ones that are pretty much just as useful! After the 8 weeks were over, we were added to the fb group for alumni and it just wasn’t the same. The only reason I can think of to join for the community, is if B-school is full of your dream clients and you want to use the community to sell your services.

I would like to stress that it’s in no way bad or useless information. It’s basic business knowledge that yes, works! (But none if it is Marie's ideas, she just resells you knowledge that other people have published in books - adding a nice package and a way higher price tag.) If the course had a price below $200 dollars, I would probably leave a good review.

If you are about to start a business, finding and learning the information that is contained in B-school is probably the easiest part. Invest in some business books, but please don’t waste 2k!
Ideal Customer: I believe no one should spend that much money on basic business knowledge
Additional Comments: I did learn a lot, make some nice connections and had some mindset shifts. But the price is simply ridiculous.
