MicroBusiness Mastery*

*formerly Business in Balance

 Owning a business is a true balancing act!
So many different hats to wear

and so may different tasks to accomplish—
all at the same time.

MicroBusiness Mastery covers all stages of planning and implementation, from the clarification of your initial concept through the selling of your unique products and services.

When you follow MicroBusiness Mastery’s step-by-step business-building system, you learn exactly what to do when and how to do it.

Your balancing act becomes your happy dance, freeing you to be your creative, entrepreneurial best!

Design a business that supports a healthy, balanced, financially thriving lifestyle. What can be more rewarding than that!

What’s a MicroBusiness?

A microbusiness is a company:

  • with five or fewer employees.
  • started with little or no initial capital ($50,000 or less.)
  • that may not have access to traditional commercial loans.
  • that starts small, but can grow quickly into a large job-generating business.

Even though the “micro” part of microbusiness makes things sound do-able, there is a lot involved in getting a business of any size up and running successfully. Why invent the wheel when you can learn from others who have “been there done that?”

What will I learn?

MicroBusiness Mastery is divided in three two-month segments. Each part covers a key aspect of the business-building process, giving you a stable foundation from which to launch your business. When you prepare for the launch of your business step by step, you can’t help but succeed!

Part I: Bold Beginnings—Your Business Foundations

When you are in business start-up mode or are up-leveling an existing business, the process is the same. This is the time to give your dreams shape, form, color and lots of details.

It’s time for clarity of purpose, so you don’t take off helter-skelter, in a business that fizzles down the line.

In Bold Beginnings you will create a Business-building Overview which brings order to all these details. Your business name, tagline, logo, business colors, mission, and offerings come together to create a unique brand that reflects your core values and personal style.

Part II: Organized for Success—Your Business Financing & Plans

Your business success depends on high-level organizational and planning skills, as well as ease in working with finances. These don’t come naturally to every business owner.

Organized for Success gives you tools to:

  • create a realistic financial plan.
  • design short and long-term schedules for all operations.
  • develop marketing systems tailored to your business’s needs.

You will be drawing on your Business-Building Overview from Bold Beginnings to draft a comprehensive 3-phase business plan. The skills you master in Organized for Success will spill over into all areas of your life. And you will like that. Exciting!

Part III: Online & Lively—Your Business Web Presence

As a microbusiness owner, you have an astounding array of online advertising options available to you for relatively little cost. In Online and Lively you will design a website and social media presence that is not simply a virtual business card.

Your website and social media platform will become a multi-facited, interactive portal for communication with your choice clients and customers. A portal that actual attracts interest and business!

You’ll master the nuts and bolts of an online launch. This is an exciting way to get your babies out into the world—your new products, services, website and even your business as a whole.

What’s involved?

MicroBusiness Mastery is a 6-month business-building course. The course has been divided into three 8-week segments focusing on different aspects of growing a business. Each of the three parts include:

8 Weekly Modules

Each Sunday evening, you will receive links to the week’s module in the MicroBusiness Mastery Member’s Hub. These assignments build on each other, at an easily do-able pace.

5 Live Webinars

These interactive MicroBusiness Mastery virtual get-togethers are focused on some of the complex aspects of business-building you find most challenging. Perhaps its projected income, business plans, websites, or social media.

Sessions include a lively mix of  group discussions, breakouts, demos and sharing. You can expect visioning, brainstorming, planning and strategy. And you will learn to keep your micropreneurial mindset in peak condition, so you can do what you plan to so.

These webinars often include a short balance—a group process to enhance your clarity, focus, follow-through and creativity.

These meetings are recorded. If you can’t meet with us at the scheduled time, you can listen later, at your convenience. (But . . . you really won’t want to miss them!)

3 Live Success-building Clinics

These planning and implementation sessions are worth their weight in gold! Every other week, for two hours, you meet in virtual space with other MicroBusiness Mastery members and coaches to tackle projects you may have been avoiding. This is your opportunity to receive feedback from the group and laser coaching from your coaches. You get to cross something off your business-building list and have fun doing it!

(These meetings are not recorded.)
