Featured Success Story

Here’s a few commonly asked questions:
How does Bootcamp work?
In this 10-week online program, you interact with like-minded peers who are also working on their businesses. You are guided by a Mentor – an expert and fellow Bootcamp Graduate. Each week you’ll engage in learning, discussions, and goal setting, and follow up on any goals set in the previous week.
What kind of time commitment is required?
We recommend dedicating 3 to 5 hours per week. This includes 90-minute weekly sessions with your small group and 3 large group, 90-minute sessions once each month. The remaining time, which includes 1:1 meetings with your mentor and ongoing learning through videos and peer interactions, is self paced.
I’ve wasted time and money in the past on courses where I didn’t learn anything. What will my ROI be?
Our goal is that you get a return on your initial investment in the program. That’s why we spend time talking with you in advance to make sure the program is a good fit. Ultimately, your success depends on you: the time you’re willing to work on your business; whether you take advantage of the learning, mentoring, and support offered; whether you reach out for help when you need it. If you engage, you’ll receive the help you need, and it will impact your business.
How are small groups matched up?
We match students with like-minded peers who are in similar places in their businesses. We want you to be challenged by and support each other. Whether you’re a freelancer working solo, a new or smaller-sized agency, or a high-revenue agency that’s been in business for many years, we match you with a Mentor we believe is best suited to help you.
