A Glimpse Behind the $10K Bootcamp Curtain
As a strategist for $10K Bootcamp, I get the opportunity to speak with a lot of web pros at various stages of business building. But because I’m not as “out front” as Brent is, people often wonder what it’s like to have a call with me.
Today, I’m pulling back the curtain and sharing what’s behind hundreds of calls with everyone from freelancers just starting out to seasoned agency owners.
A Cocktail Party…Without the Drinks
My goal on every call is to find out who you are and to learn about where your business is today and where you’d like to see it go. Ultimately, I’m trying to figure out if $10K Bootcamp is the right fit for your business goals.
I’m genuinely interested in learning about you and your business. I have a space in the middle of the uGurus office, allowing me to share your stories in real time with the team here.
Most candidates simply want to be heard; to have someone asking them the kinds of questions that give them the answers they haven’t been able to find elsewhere. I find so many web pros making large decisions about business on their own. They really want someone who will engage with them, “talk shop,” and challenge their ideas.
Here are a few of the most common ones:
Top $10K Bootcamp Questions Candidates Ask:
Q: What’s the structure of $10K Bootcamp? How does it work?
A: $10K Bootcamp is a 10-week online program. You’re interacting with like-minded peers, who are also working on their businesses. You are guided by a Mentor – an industry expert and $10K Graduate who has implemented our strategies and grown their own businesses. Every week you’ll engage in learning, discussions, and goal setting. Then, the following week, you’ll come back and be held accountable for your goals and also receive continued support and guidance as you work to implement new strategies and goals
Q: What time commitment is required?
A: During the 10-week course, we recommend being able to dedicate 3 to 5 hours per week. You’ll participate in 90-minute weekly sessions with your small group on a designated day at a designated time. We also hold 3 large group sessions, led by Brent, that occur once per month and also last 90 minutes. The other time is self-paced and varies from one-on-one meetings with your mentor, continued learning through videos or peer interactions, but mostly working on your business to make changes while you’re with us.
Q: I’ve spent lots of money in the past on courses where I didn’t learn anything I didn’t already know and felt like I’d wasted time and money. What is the success rate? What will my ROI be?
A: Our goal is to see you get a return on your initial financial investment in the program. That’s part of the reason why we’re willing to spend time talking with you, before you commit, to make sure the program is a good fit with you and your business goals.
Ultimately, though, I’d say your success will depend on you: the time you’re willing to invest working on your business; whether you take advantage of the learning, mentoring, and support you receive; whether you reach out for help when you need it. If you engage in the process, learning, and support, you’ll receive more help than I can put words to – and it will all directly apply to your business. Also, as an added reassurance, if you join us and you discover within 30 days that you don’t feel it’s for you, we have a 100% money-back guarantee.
Q: Is this a set business format where you tell me how I should structure my business? I’ve been in those courses and find it doesn’t match me and my goals.
A: We do have set content that we teach each week, but $10K Bootcamp is not a “one-size-fits-all” program. It’s structured with guided learning, planning, and strategizing to help you build the business you want to have. We don’t tell you what your business should be, but rather help guide you to set up a successful model that’s right for you.
Q: I started a business to spend more time with my family, to see my kids grow up, to take more vacations. I’m often finding that all my time goes to the work. How can I make this more workable for my family? Will $10K teach me how to change this?
A: We’re big proponents of building the type of business you want, so you can live the life that means the most to you.
One of our endeavors in $10K Bootcamp is to help you focus on the most important areas of your business by leveraging your time, ultimately allowing you to overcome your time limitations.
Whether that means having the freedom to spend more time with your family or creating a business that functions well when you’re away, we will provide the guidance and support to create the business structure that works best for your needs.
Q: How are small groups matched up?
A: We work to match our students with like-minded peers who are in similar places in their businesses. We want you to be challenged by one another while also able to support each other in similar ways.
Additionally, we match you up with the mentor we feel will be best suited to help you. Whether you’re a freelancer working solo or contracting help, a new or smaller sized agency, or a high-revenue agency that’s been in business for many years, we work to match you appropriately so you’ll get the conversations and guidance that you specifically need.
Q: What if I enroll and decide $10K Bootcamp isn’t for me after all?
A: If you join us and you discover within 30 days that you don’t feel it’s for you, we have a 100% money-back guarantee.
I don’t give “magic solutions” on our call, but I will help you determine if you’re ready to discover the solutions that are right for you and your business. So, don’t hesitate to apply and we can start the conversation.
