And #TeamDanielle loves to learn. We’re adorkable that way. Since it’s the season of B-School registration and every one of us has gone through B-School (and we dip into the community throughout the year — every year, for 4 years running now…) we’ve culled our best B-School business lessons.
#TeamDanielle + B-School Strategy = Unstoppable

One year in B-School, Marie asked, “How would you behave if you were best in the world at what you do?”. That one question was a game-changer for me — it had a big influence on how and who I collaborated with from then on.
Also! B-School’s project management docs got our team through a whole lotta product launches.
And there’s more… I’ve always been clear who my “customer avatar” is, but I’ve watched that B-School exercise create SO many aha’s and clarity for people. It works like a laser beam on your development and marketing priorities — and inner peace.

Module 4: List Building is my favorite. When I started my online business years ago (back when I thought I knew what I was doing), I had no idea how important building my email list was. Module 4 helped me understand that an email list is really the bread and butter of any business — whether you operate mostly online or not. Your list is your lifeline, your direct connection to your core audience.
If you are not actively growing your email list, you are throwing money out the door — not to mention missing out on opportunities to fully serve your audience.

When I first went through B-School, I started out by knowing that I wanted to be an entrepreneur and that I wanted to focus on the spirituality space, but that’s about all I knew. I had no idea what kind of business model or product / service would fit with my interests and skills.
One of my first big leaps forward came from zeroing in on the ways I work best and identifying potential products/services from there. This was a huge shift for me — in all my previous experience, I had worked hard to fit into the mold that my employers expected. Marie showed me that I could design a business based on my unique rhythm and preferences, letting what felt best for me lead the way. Huge liberation.
Also, her prompts and worksheet exercises helped me get more specific than I ever had about my ideal lifestyle, and therefore the kind of business that would work well with those goals.

Entrepreneurship was a pretty foreign concept to me when I started B-School (I just wanted to make art), so learning about the Ideal Customer Avatar in Module 1: Profit Plan created a huge shift for me.
The in-depth exercises Marie includes showed me how to step into the psyche of my client, and that was revolutionary. That made me a better designer and helped me figure out how to market my work in a way that felt authentic and true to me.

One of my favorite things about B-School is the B-School community. I always know where to go to find a like-minded entrepreneur. Whether I have a question, need feedback / support on my ideas, or just want to share good news with someone, I know I can turn to the B-School crowd and be heard. Some of my favorite people on the planet I met in B-School.
B-School helps you seriously succeed, and if you succeed, that means more people on the planet are living according to their Core Desired Feelings. Exponential light.
