B-School Graduates

I've finally graduated from Marie Forleo's B-School. It was one heck of a ride. I learned so much, and was so inspired every single day. Even after the program is over, I'm still listening to the Q&A call MP3 downloads, participating in the private Facebook group, re-doing some of the worksheets and watching the videos again. I don't think I'll ever truly be "done."

Along the way, I discovered a few previous B-School grads that I just fell in love with. They are inspiration-inducing, brilliant, superstar business owners whose products I happily consume. And I thought I'd share them here with you.

Leonie Dawson -- Australian creativity business coach and artist
Molly Hahn -- Artist of the increasingly popular Buddha Doodles, a cartoon featured on Huffington Post
Mastin Kipp -- Founder of The Daily Love
Jenny Shih -- Coach & consultant for creative entrepreneurs
Mayi Carles -- Creator of Life is Messy Bootcamp
Amy Porterfield -- Facebook marketing expert

The two biggest lessons from B-School for me were, 1) Get started now, and 2) Everything is figure-out-able. Don't wait until you have the perfect business idea, the perfect business name, or you've quit your day job -- there are no perfect conditions in which to start a business. And there is virtually nothing you can't learn how to do, thanks to the Internet. So start with what inspires you and go for it. Life is short. Leave a mark.
