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!
I believe no one should spend that much money on basic business knowledge
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)
