Reminiscing on the moment, two years ago, when I hit the enroll button for B-School makes my heart flutter, because I know now what an amazing gift the universe had presented to me – and I’m SO grateful I accepted and took action.
Just a few months earlier, I’d closed the doors to my photo studio and took a huge leap of faith to launch the purpose-driven business of my dreams. It was terrifying. And, to be perfectly honest, even the closest people in my life couldn’t hide the doubts they held about my vision.
Do you ever compare yourself to others and punish yourself because things aren't happening the same for you?
I recently shared a little of my story on Instagram and it got an amazing response, and I realized - too many of us pressure ourselves with unrealistic expectations.
My biz story doesn't involve one of those overnight 0 to 6 figures magical successes. It's a raw, true story (in progress!) of dedicated action. Daily actions which lifted me out of 10 years of "barely scraping by", to doubling my income in one fiscal year AND building the biz of my dreams.
I'm not going to tell you it was easy.
It's been a ton of work. The difference these days, however, is that the work and time I pour in actually PAYS OFF.
The unfriendly truth is - unless you're a savvy biz person, these days you will suffer and likely sink. Because -
How can you keep up, stand out, or get things rolling if you don't actually know HOW?
Trade schools are awesome. But in my opinion, they fail us in one HUGE way. They teach us how to be an expert - health coach, massage therapist, acupuncturist, photographer - but they DON'T teach us how to be a successful business owner.
I'm getting a little emotional here, because I'm actually talking about my own struggles that consumed TEN YEARS of my life. It never changed, no matter how hard I tried, no matter what I did differently, because I was guessing at everything I was doing. I didn't know how to be a business person. No one ever taught me.
I just thought - If I watched what others were doing, and did the same things, stuff would start rolling. Guess what?
Those ten years and that process was so painful. For years, I thought I was a complete failure. A FAILURE. I tried SO. HARD.
Seriously. I hope that if you're reading this and you FEEL it, that you hear this -
Trying to figure out how to run a successful business without any business training, forcing yourself to guess at everything and do everything on your own, then punishing yourself for not achieving the same success of others is a brutal cycle of self-punishment.
I don't know where you're at with your business right now, but if you've read this far, it means you somehow relate to my story.
Please know that you're not alone. I have been there. Please give yourself so much love and appreciation for the amazing things you've accomplished. Keep your self-talk positive.
You are AMAZING.
I know you're in this because you have a huge heart, you're passionate about what you do, and you want to make a difference in our world.
Business is NOT easy.
If I have one word of advice as someone who's been there (not so long ago) and is still in the process of the upward climb, it's - don't do it alone.
And don't wait until things "get off the ground" to make the right investments.
Listen, B-School is a big investment, and something to take into deep consideration.
I didn't have the money to invest when I signed up. I was seriously struggling.
But, the thing is - I had been struggling for 10 YEARS, and I knew I had a decision to make: Continue struggling, or invest in the help I needed to give me the step-by-step direction to propel me to a new place.
B-SCHOOL CHANGED EVERYTHING FOR ME.
The best decision I made was to stop guessing at all this biz stuff and to get support. For me, that decision came in the form of Marie Forleo's B-School.
So you might be thinking - okay, Briena but what were your actual RESULTS?
Here are a few of the tangible changes I've experienced since joining B-School just two years ago. (Keep in mind, some results are impossible to measure. Including confidence, clarity and mindset.)
- Launched the first-ever stock photo source to serve the holistic wellness industry
- Quit my "day" job
- Created 3 ragingly-successful email opt-in freebies, along with 3 crazy awesome email funnel automations with a 53% average email interaction rate
- Grew my email list from 0-4,000 subscribers - I had 1,000 people on my list by the time I was ready to open my doors, which meant I didn't launch to crickets. Consequently;
- I turned a profit my first month in business
- Since then, I've DOUBLED my highest-ever annual income
- Grew my Instagram account from 390 followers to over 10,000
- Hired contract photographers to take over the portrait end of my business so I can focus on what I love - my stock photo store
- I've been featured as a "guest expert" in multiple international publications, magazines, live interviews, podcasts and webinars, including Health Blogger's Community Magazine, Wellpreneur Podcast with Amanda Cook, Rachel Feldman, and Formula Botanica (to name a few)
- Became the first-ever stock photo site to become a 1% For The Planet Contributor. So every photo purchased goes back to supporting causes I believe in - like the Non-GMO Project.
- Mapped out my business process and goals and created a clear, streamlined vision with step-by-step actions
B-School gave me direction. Taught me to work smarter, not harder. It showed the big picture and helped me to understand which were the IMPORTANT things to invest my time and money into - rather than just guessing and pouring my time and money into things that didn't matter and didn't show any return.
B-School not only changed my business, it changed my life.
You only have one opportunity each year to join. The time is NOW.
Your only opportunity to dive into B-School without having to wait another year is now.
Doors open February 20th and close March 1st.
If you're ready to make big changes in your biz through a strategic step-by-step action plan THIS YEAR, then you don't want to ignore this. Trying to figure it all out on your own for another year isn't worth it. Believe me. I tested that out for ten years.
