ABOUT THE Programme:
WHAT IS Become Your own boss?
A Freedom Business is flexible enough to allow you to live the lifestyle you desire. The prerequisites for a Freedom Business:
- it is online and service based - for ease of entry and low cost-base
- it allows you to choose your working hours and schedule - and makes you location independent
- it is in an industry or area you love - because who wants to work in something they don’t enjoy?
- it plays to your own strengths and talents - often you have a skill you totally take for granted that others would kill for
- it offers huge value to your clientele so you can charge premium prices and earn good money without working all hours )
In the programme, over 18 modules, we go through:
How to choose and validate your business idea
How to find your ideal clients
How to transform your mindset for confidence and success in business
Professional branding, websites, and copywriting
How to grow a following and build relationships with your prospective clients
How to sell your programme to the right people in a heartfelt way
How to scale your business beyond 5K per month
- How to leverage your time to work less
IS IT LIVE?
No, this is a home study programme that you can work through at your own pace in the comfort of your own home.
IF I BUY TODAY, CAN I DEFER THE START?
The course is a home study programme so you can work at your own pace, deferring as long as you need.
IS THIS PROGRAMME RIGHT FOR ME?
WHO IS THIS PROGRAMME FOR?
I work with professional women, usually in corporate, who have extremely stressful careers and busy lives. This used to be my story.
My clients crave Freedom - to run their own schedule, travel, have free time, and just enjoy life.
Become Your Own Boss Home Study is a 6 month home study programme where I share with you the business building curriculum I developed for my live coaching clients so you can learn how to launch a Freedom Business that can earn 5K+ per month, enabling you to leave your 9-5 and start living your dream lifestyle.
NB - if you don't have a corporate background, BYOB can still help you - if launching an online service based business appeals to you.
IS A HOME STUDY PROGRAMME SOMETHING YOU THINK I'D BENEFIT FROM OR DO YOU THINK I NEED 1-1 COACHING?
If you’re brand new to entrepreneurship, the smaller price tag of a home study programme might be more suitable. If you'd like to discuss live coaching, please feel free to email us.
SHOULDN’T I GO TO BUSINESS SCHOOL TO LEARN ALL THIS?
Business schools have their place in the world - if you want to climb the corporate ladder. For $250,000, you can spend 2 years learning a lot of theory and end up in a management consultancy working all hours to pay it all off again.
Freedom businesses are different from the rest - they are quick to set up and don’t need huge amounts of capital, so no need for investors or detailed business plans. There’s no need to learn about Mergers and Acquisitions or Advanced Accounting. A traditional MBA isn’t going to help much.
Instead, for a one-off payment of £1,000, you’ll learn everything you need to know to start earning that and more each and every month in your business.
HOW MUCH TIME TO I NEED TO DEDICATE TO THE PROGRAMME?
Having launched Living Rosy while working all hours in investment banking, I know how tough it can be to find time to work on your dreams. That's why I've deliberately condensed and streamlined this programme into a step-by-step process for you to follow along.
It’s likely to take 2-3 hours per week to complete the modules, and I recommend 5-10 hours per week to build your business alongside your day job following my process. The Orientation module helps you to craft a powerful schedule to enable you to find these pockets of time.
COULD I FIGURE OUT MY BUSINESS WITHOUT ANY ADDITIONAL HELP/COST?
Harsh truth - if you can do that, you’ll be in business already!
There is zero dishonour in getting support. All successful people have a team of experts around them. You won’t find a CEO or even a senior manager nowadays who doesn’t have their own executive coach.
One of the biggest learnings I have had in business is that investing in support pays for itself multiple times over.
Firstly there’s the ROI generated by the business idea itself once you’re up and running (you’d need just one quarter of a client to pay back your investment). Then, there’s the opportunity cost of wasting time trying to figure out a business idea and NOT earning money in the meantime. Finally, there’s the actual costs you’ll likely pay if you get to a badly formulated business idea and waste money trying to get it off the ground.
I'M CONCERNED THAT THE COURSE POINTS TOWARDS A SERVICE BASED/COACHING AND PREMIUM BRAND. IF I DECIDE I WANT TO GO INTO SOME OTHER KIND OF BUSINESS, WILL IT BE APPLICABLE?
I focus on helping people create Freedom Businesses - i.e. we start with what you desire from your life and build a business that is aligned with the lifestyle, earnings and working hours you require to live your ideal life. We mould your business to fit your dreams.
Service based, premium brands offer the easiest and lowest cost entry into business, and the quickest route to earning a decent income.
But, occasionally some people take the course and, in working through it, end up on other paths.
Here’s one email I received recently:
WHAT IF I DECIDE THE PROGRAMME IS NOT RIGHT FOR ME?
I’m including a 30 day no questions asked, full money back refund policy.
Jump in, check out the course, see how you like it, and if it’s totally not your cup of tea - just let us know.
No risk to you.
I stand behind my programmes so much that I’m willing to shoulder that risk for you. I trust that you’re a good person and you won’t mess me around (I do have a team whose wages I need to pay). But if you need that refund policy as a security net - it’s there for you.
VALUE FOR MONEY
HOW DO YOU MAKE SURE THAT THE VIDEO MODULES ARE EFFECTIVE LEARNING?
All of my programmes - even the live 1:1 private coaching - have the same suite of video modules to do the "teaching" aspect of my work. The benefit is you can pause, rewind, watch again to take in what is being taught.
There are also workbooks which ask the right questions for you to work through at your own pace and to help you come to the right realisations about your ideal business idea and lifestyle.
ARE THE MODULES SUFFICIENTLY IN-DEPTH TO BE VALUE FOR MONEY?
Each module is approximately 1 hour of video and the workbooks should take 1-2 hours to fill out. It's not so much about how long the modules are, more that I make it the powerful learning experience you need in the most efficient time possible. We're all way too busy to waste time!
From a value perspective, you're learning how to develop a business idea that can earn £/$ 5,000-10,000 per month - i.e. £/$ 120,000+ per year. The cost of the programme is less than 1% of that - and that's just for one year of earnings.
I have invested over $60,000 in programmes and education (learning which I then filter into my own programmes). I've personally seen a return on even that investment multiple times in my first year or so in business.
HOW CAN I POSSIBLY EARN THIS KIND OF MONEY WITHOUT WORKING HARD - IT MUST BE ILLEGAL!
I understand that we are programmed to equate money with hard work, but with my help, that thinking stops now.
I’ve built two genuine businesses, one in health coaching and then in entrepreneurship coaching, because I’m passionate about helping other women who are as lost and trapped as I was in my body and my career. By channeling my expertise, I’ve been able to change many lives - and I want to help you tap into your own unique talents so you can help others too.
By creating a highly valuable offer and being of true service to our clients, we can command an appropriate fee.
It’s a beautiful thing when we start earning more money. We can hire more staff in our businesses, providing income to others. Even indulgences, like manicures or massages, help those service providers to earn more money and live better lives too. And let’s not forget our philanthropic power when we have extra money to donate.
SURELY I CAN’T EARN THIS KIND OF MONEY AND ENJOY MY WORK?
Yes you can! There is no divine law that states that you must suffer for your salary. Plenty of people in regular jobs love their work, why should you miss out on that just because the corporate world doesn’t suit you?
The best part of running your own Freedom Business is that YOU call the shots - you don’t have to take on projects you don’t enjoy, or put up with a nasty colleague. You have absolute and total freedom in everything that you do!
I CAN'T POSSIBLY AFFORD £1,000!
I do understand that it’s an investment, and you may not be used to investing in yourself at this level. I remember my first coaching investment and it scared me so much to part with such a sum of money.
Remember that, with the teaching in the programme, you’ll be equipped to earn £5,000+ each and every month (and more!). The original investment will be recouped many times over.
Personally, I’ve spent almost $60,000 on my own coaching and business education to develop my expertise - you are accessing that for a fraction of the investment I’ve made.
Wealth consciousness and money mindset is a huge learning experience - which I do introduce in the first module of the programme. Shifting my perception of and fear around money played a huge part in my own business success.
We all have different priorities and choose to allocate our resources according to them. For example, you may “not afford” this programme but buy clothes, a holiday, or go on a night out (and that’s ok!) There are often ways to find the funds we desire.
WHAT OTHER COACHING SERVICES SUCH AS THIS ARE OUT THERE? WHAT KIND OF PRICE TAG DO THEY HAVE?
My programmes are in line with my peers and colleagues (we know each other well and I mastermind with most of them!).
Coaching varies enormously in price. The standard for an entry level coach is around £/$3,000 for 12 live 1:1 sessions. On the other end, programmes can be $200,000 even up to $1 million for a year’s contract. I price my live services based on their value (the key to a premium brand). My private coaching is currently £7,500 for 6 months.
This home study version allows you to access the same curriculum my live clients receive, but for a fraction of the price. For the £1,000 investment, you’ll learn how to create a business earning at least five times that amount per month - so in one year you could recoup that investment many times over.
BUT WHAT IF I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ENTREPRENEURSHIP?
Perfect! You are EXACTLY who I created this programme for. I was once in your shoes - with both parents working for the state, I didn’t have any entrepreneurial role models growing up. I thought entrepreneurs had to be male, or tech wizards, or super risk taking. I was none of those things.
However, when I stumbled upon Freedom Entrepreneurship and decided to invest in the right support, I’ve never looked back since! I’ve learned exactly what’s needed (and what is a HUGE waste of time) in launching and growing my own Freedom Businesses.
In fact, I’ve created a six month coaching programme that will teach you everything you need to know to go from zero to £5k per month or more by the time the programme ends.
No investors, no overly-detailed business plans, no huge amount capital required. And you don’t need to know anything about tech or taxes to get started.
Hiring a high-level entrepreneurship coach is the best way for you to learn about entrepreneurship and receive the personalised support you require to succeed.
I’VE ALREADY GOT A BUSINESS, BUT IT’S NOT GOING ANYWHERE. CAN YOU HELP?
Definitely! Congrats to you on getting started! I’ll bet your business is a great concept that requires just a few little tweaks here and there to start flying.
Using the framework of Become Your Own Boss, you can validate that your service based business idea and model is profitable, and learn how to market it effectively online.
ISN’T ENTREPRENEURSHIP SUPER RISKY?
It really doesn’t have to be. A freedom business is deliberately NOT a 9-5, so in the beginning you are perfectly able to start building it alongside your day job. When your business is earning you enough consistent income that you feel ready to make the leap, then you can decide to quit your job.
Quitting your job seems like a huge decision when you’ve never done it before - I know because I procrastinated for so long when I was still in the corporate world. Eventually I made the leap with the support of my coach at the time and it has been the best decision I’ve ever made!
An online, service based business doesn’t require huge sums of capital to get going - in fact you can invest as you get clients, using their fees to grow your business as you work.
The programme is deliberately structured so you can get out and start making money as soon as you are ready, meaning you could be at your £5k per month even before finishing the programme.
HOW LONG UNTIL I START MAKING SOME MONEY IN MY BUSINESS?
I’m not here to pull the wool over your eyes - launching a business takes time and effort. Even with the my coaching and mentorship, members of my live coaching programmes usually take at least 6 months to get up and running. They expect to make money somewhere between months 3 and 9, depending on how quickly they implement the teaching in the programme.
WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE ENTREPRENEURSHIP?
I'M THE SORT OF PERSON THAT LIKES TO BE AROUND OTHERS, SO I WORRY I WOULD BE VERY LONELY AS AN ENTREPRENEUR.
Becoming an entrepreneur is anything but lonely! You get to choose who you work with and how/where you work each day - from a cafe with friends and other entrepreneurs, at home alone if you prefer, or at home connecting with peers and colleagues online.
MY JOB ISN'T AWFUL. IN FACT, SOME DAYS I REALLY LIKE MY JOB. I JUST WONDER IF I WOULD BE MORE FULFILLED OUTSIDE OF THE CORPORATE WORLD. I WORRY THAT I WOULD BE JUMPING OUT OF SOMETHING THAT'S ACTUALLY OK, INTO SOMETHING I MIGHT NOT ENJOY OR REALLY STRUGGLE WITH.
First up, no one is quitting their job right away. Rent has to be paid - whether its from business profits, or your salary while your side-hustle your way to profit.
You don’t need to have an awful job to become an entrepreneur. I’ve had “OK’ jobs too - nice enough people, good pay, the hours “weren’t too bad”. But I only had 25 days to travel per year and I was still out of the house 12 hours a day. I had to stand on a packed commuter train for 2 hours a day.
It's just that I decided I was no longer willing to compromise on anything - I wanted everything in my life to be exactly as I wanted it. And that’s what the flexibility of a Freedom Business offers you. Nowadays I take afternoons off most days, I travel every month at least once, I work from cafes, I meet amazing people, and I’m now earning more per month than I did with a six-figure salary back in the corporate world.
If you want everything to go your way - likely a Freedom Business is the only way you will get that.
I'M WAITING TO MAKE SOME MONEY OR GET MY IDEA FIRST BEFORE I INVEST WITH A COACH
If you are feeling unclear about the direction of your business and/or how to start getting it up and running, I'd really recommend you consider working with a coach. That's what we're here for!
After all, there's no point in hiring a coach to give you the answers you already know :)
Trying to work everything out by yourself is such a long way around and is such a waste of time - and money too - when you aren't sure what to invest in or what your business needs. Working by yourself can be years of struggle when you don’t know what to do. After all, you're moving into an entirely new industry so it's normal that you would need training.
WHAT IF I ALREADY HAVE A BUSINESS BUT WANT TO CHANGE?
If you come in with an idea fully formed, that's great. You can use the course to double check it really serves you, and learn how to price your services and gain confidence in that niche.
If you aren't sure on your desired business, that's great too - you can come in and do the exercises to find your ideal business idea. It's designed for people to come in with no real defined idea.
The focus of this programme is to validate or generate a business idea, then learn how to set up and market that business online successfully.
WHAT IF I ALREADY HAVE A BUSINESS IDEA?
The course would be really useful for you to ensure that you can validate your idea, but also to make sure it will give you the lifestyle you desire.
If you've got ideas but are a little unsure, I'd suggest taking all the exercises with an open mind and seeing whether you end up at your current business ideas or whether, after enjoying the programme you discover that actually you've uncovered better ideas.
PERSONAL SET BACKS:
I’M REALLY NOT READY TO BE AN ENTREPRENEUR - I DON’T HAVE A BUSINESS IDEA, I FEEL I SHOULD WAIT FOR MY NEXT PROMOTION, OR UNTIL I’M MARRIED, OR UNTIL I LOSE WEIGHT, OR UNTIL…
Here’s the thing, we are never fully ready for big decisions. Just as there is never the perfect time to have a baby, there is never a perfect time to start a business. Life goes on, and that’s ok.
It’s natural to feel scared or apprehensive about making a life-changing decision, but don’t let the fear hold you back. If you truly desire a Freedom Life, you’re never going to find it in your current position. Start before you are ready and you’ll be amazed how far you’ll go before you even realise.
I’M HOPELESS WITH TECH - HOW ON EARTH CAN I START AN ONLINE BUSINESS?!
We don’t have to be coding wizards to run an online business. If you can handle Google searches and navigate Facebook, you are already well-equipped to get going. Yes, there are a few (very user-friendly) apps to get acquainted with, but you have my full support in learning how to use them.
I’m known by my friends as “Grandma” for my (lacking) technical ability, but I am fully capable of running my business alone. Remember there is always an expert who can handle anything funky, probably for less than $100 too.
I’M TERRIFIED OF BEING SEEN, NETWORKING CREEPS ME OUT AND I CAN’T IMAGINE BEING ON VIDEO!
You’d be surprised how common this is - I’m not a particularly shy person but my first video felt icky to publish!
Getting super clear on your message, knowing you are in service to others and having the support of a trusted mentor will see your confidence soar over the course of our 6 months together.
Before you know it your name will be in the New York Times or Vogue magazine!
I'M CONCERNED THAT MY FOCUS ISN'T 100 PERCENT....
What are you overwhelmed by? If its your career, I'd recommend you jump in the programme and follow along. I developed my work specifically for women who are in a busy day job for them to start a business on the side. That means, the programme is extremely streamlined - it’s likely to take 5-10 hours per week to set up your business.
Trust me, I know just how overwhelming business can be - there are so many things to do and ideas to try. I've personally found having a mentor and following their steps has got me out of that place of "too much going on" and made me focus. When I stay very focused on the right methods and have just one goal, that's when I see huge shifts and up levels.
WHAT IF I HAVE A BUSY CAREER / NEW JOB / FAMILY?
Even if there's other things in your life overwhelming you (trust me there too - I've moved house 3x in the last year and been sick myself plenty of times - but my business has still grown exponentially). You can still build a great business when you have other worries or responsibilities - but then focus and being strict with your time becomes even more important.
I AM CONCERNED THAT I AM NOT OF THE REQUIRED STANDARD TO WORK WITH YOU!
There is no 'required standard' to work with me - just practicalities like being able to speak fluent English so we can communicate.
Most of my clients and community are either still in the corporate world or just launching their own businesses and want to see them grow. They come to me for business coaching but also for a shift in personal mindset to be able to succeed.
I WANT TO DO SOMETHING SIMILAR TO YOU AND DON'T WANT YOU TO THINK I'VE COPIED OR MIMICKED YOUR IDEAS
You'll hear this in the course - but part of my own philosophy is that there is no competition because we all offer our own unique spin on our teaching.
Your own life experience and personality will influence your business and message in a way that will undoubtedly be different to mine, since we are each different people (and different to everyone else too).
The contents of my course are covered by my own IP copyright in the contract so no worries there.
If you've got a business idea then I say go for it! You are more than welcome to take my course and I hope to see you there soon.
