Over the years you have certainly heard me speak about my friend and mentor, Marie Forleo and the impact that she has had on changing my life. Along with a lot of momentum and hard work, I attribute a lot of my success in my most recent jewelry business (and Flourish & Thrive Academy) to Marie. But did I ever tell you I was close to completely writing B-School off as an impossibility?
That’s right, all benefits of the thriving business I have been running over the last couple of years almost never happened. And why you ask? Because I had so many excuses not to.
Maybe they were fears or you might even classify them as obstacles. But whatever you call them, they were all barriers to my success!
Everybody suffers these same dilemmas when it comes to making big decisions. They are normal and healthy. The trick is discovering when they are legitimate concerns and when they are simply justifications. The following are three reasons why I almost didn’t join B-School along with explanations for why they nothing more than excuses.
Here were my excuses:
It is a big investment
There is no way to sugar coat this… B-School was an investment, the biggest investment I had made in my custom jewelry business. I laugh about that now mainly because within the first week of taking the program, I knew I was in the right place. By implementing the tips and tools I was given, I had no problem recouping my investment and then some!
Investing in the right training is the key to business success.
I don’t have enough time right now
Trust me, this was one of my excuses as well. While I was in transition and getting ready for the holiday season, I didn’t feel like I had any time to focus on the program. The best part about B-School is that it is a self-paced program.
When I ended up getting swamped at the end of the course, I had the flexibility to dive deep into the content at my own pace. Plus, once a member, always a member! Marie only offers B-School once a year, so each year you can take a refresher and take advantages of the upgrades and new content.
This program sounds great, but I don’t think it is for me
Good news! It is definitely for you, and any other entrepreneur who would like focus their marketing efforts and increase their sales online. I have seen seasoned business owners with a spark in their eye after learning a new trick that has already saved them tons of time and money. I have also seen aspiring entrepreneurs go from zero to making money in a matter of weeks! Additionally, I launched a whole new business, Flourish & Thrive Academy after taking Marie’s program. If not for the insights that I gained from taking this course, I would have never considered branching in this new direction.
When I was first considering joining B-School I was hesitant because I didn’t think my physical jewelry business had any reason to utilize internet marketing techniques. I couldn’t have been more wrong. B-School is effective for every genre of business in every stage of development!
