Whether you are just starting out -- or already years into your business -- this online course is designed to help create (and improve) your business plan, understand how to better track progress, and to learn which systems, tools and structures you'll need for authentic business growth.

For over 10 years, I’ve coached thousands of entrepreneurs and small business owners, helping them clarify their offerings and create plans and systems to grow their business. This is the course that I require all my clients to take. I recommend it to you as well, if you'd like to understand my overall strategy, business model, and marketing principles.

So much to think about as we work on our business...

  • How to create a reliable path to success?
  • What to do first, second, third?
  • How do these actions help me serve more clients?
  • ​How do I organize myself so I'm taking daily action that’s effective and authentic?


You have an authentic business when...


(1) You provide services/products that are deeply meaningful to you, based on your own life experiences, and...

(2) You can modify your offerings to keep step with your personal evolution (i.e. you're not just selling other people's products), and...

(3) The ways you market your offerings feels like an honest and generous act of service towards your audience, and finally...

(4) Your business is consistently meeting reasonable financial goals that you've set (rather than hype and fantasy).

If this is the kind of business you'd like to grow, then join this course to:

  • Learn the concentric circles business model to help you package all of your skills and experience into offerings with reasonable boundaries.

  • While working on day to day tasks of your business, to  practice keeping the big picture alive and inspiring.

  • Explore the 8 practices of authentic business as well as the 111 business formula -- these are strategies / structures that have been very useful to my own business growth, and has helped many of my clients.

  • Based on those strategies, we'll create an annual and monthly plan -- and then end up with a weekly plan -- so you’ll know what to do, going forward, to grow your business. This helps to dissolve overwhelm and create clear action.

  • Create a simple tracking system for your marketing and business progress.

  • Understand which systems and tools I recommend for successful self-employment, that you may also want to implement to streamline your processes.
  • Ensure that you have a solid foundation to build and grow your authentic business, based on the principles and mindsets shared in this course.
  • Connect with fellow students in our private course directory and experience the satisfaction of mutual support and accountability as you grow your authentic business!
