You might have already learnt this the hard way – building your own business is a true commitment that comes with many challenges. Why not turn the process into something meaningful and fun too? Doing business the “soulful” way means you do not have to compromise on your life and sanity to make your business successful and you will never lose sight of why you’re doing it.

The Business Soul Sessions is a practical course that will help you build a profitable, sustainable business that matters to you and others, whether you are just starting out or already have you own business.

It has been written to help future or existing small business owners build solid and profitable businesses that will make them more happy than frustrated. Read this blog post about how the course will solve every single one of your business frustrations.

So what’s it about?

IT’S ABOUT EXPLOSIVE GROWTH.

The Business Soul Sessions is an intense online experience, designed to teach you an entirely new approach to business design, product creation, online visibility, marketing + promotion, and over-the-top profits. It doesn’t matter what your business does or sells. This is a universal philosophy that works.

IT’S BY ENTREPRENEURS FOR ENTREPRENEURS.

This is not textbook theory, it’s real strategy. It was born in the trenches, and tested in the real world. It’s business school for real businesses.

IT’S A SOULFUL SYSTEM.

We’ve created a seven-part programme that guides you from your WHY (your one-of-a-kind purpose on the planet) to your WHO (the people you want to play with + serve) to your WHAT (the products + services you feel called to create) to your HOW (the master plan to pull it off — gracefully.)

IT’S A REVOLUTIONARY APPROACH.

Unlike most business-building systems — which begin with what you’re selling, and who you’re selling it to — we start by excavating + polishing your soul mission. It’s a highly-important step that most entrepreneurs skip — and it leads to highly-original ideas and serious $$$.

There are a lots of people and programmes that teach you how to package your expertise, generate new revenue streams, connect with your audience, establish trust + credibility, and carve out an untouchable niche in your industry. We’ve seen them. We’ve taken them. We’re guessing you have, too.

There are VERY FEW programmes that teach you how to do all of those things in a way that feels satisfying, energising, nourishing + whole.

There are VERY FEW programmes that teach you how to make profits you can be proud of.

There are VERY FEW programmes that will also change your life.

We are proud to be one of the few — A RARE + RADICAL ONLINE EXPERIENCE, in a world of formulas + templates. We are here to challenge business owners to use their passion to build profitable + sustainable businesses that have a positive impact in the world.

AND THAT INCLUDES YOU.

FAQ

Click the question to reveal the answer.

Q: Where is it held?

The Business Soul Sessions is an online course. You will be sent a link to our private classroom shortly before class begins.

Q: Do I need to be on my computer at a certain time to take this course?

No - class posts go up daily but they are archived so you can work at your own pace, spending time on the course as it fits your schedule. You can access the class 24/7 from anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection.

Q: I am very busy. How much time will I need to spend on the class?

We recommend an average of at least one hour per post, which is around 5-7 hours per week. However, the more time and energy you put in, the more you will get out of it.

Q: I don't have a business yet. Is this course for me?

The course is designed for people who already have a business, even if you are in the early stages of it. Of course you are welcome to take the course at the earliest stage to help you prepare to launch.

Q: Can I ask questions during the course?

Yes, you will be able to put your questions to Course Guide Beth Kempton anytime during the course. They will be answered in a weekly Q&A. That way you also see what challenges others in class are facing, and may find answers to questions you didn’t know you had.

Q: It’s hard to admit it but I am bored with my business. I just don’t feel motivated anymore. Will this course help me with that?

It sounds like the course has come at the perfect time for you. One of the main reasons business owners stop feeling motivated is that something is ‘off’ with their business, out of sync with their personal motivations, or due to a lack of clarity around the purpose of their business. One of the fundamental principles of The Business Soul Sessions is the importance of getting clear on WHY you are doing what you are doing, before identifying WHO you want to serve with it, WHAT you can and should provide to them, and HOW to go about doing that. If you implement this model consciously and consistently, you cannot help but get energised and excited about your business, and will start to see greater impact, explosive growth and serious profits.

Q: Do you cover marketing?

Yes we do, because even the best product or service in the world isn’t going to change the world if no-one knows about what you are offering. We see marketing as a way of serving your audience, because you are making them aware of something that will be of use and value to them. This is a very different mindset from the heavy sell, but it works beautifully, even for people who find it hard to rave about themselves or their business. Before we get to marketing though, we do a huge amount of rich exploration in and around your business, so that in the end you are marketing the right thing to the right people in the right way.

Q: I want to diversify into digital products. Will the course help me with that?

The course will open your mind to a host of new possibilities for what you sell and who you sell it to. Digital products are a fantastic way to expand your offerings and generate passive income with low overheads, and if you want to explore this possibility the course will help you identify exactly what to package into a digital product and how to sell it.

Q: The thought of having a business plan terrifies me, but I know I need one. Will you help with that?

Yes – our Soul Business Planner is the perfect way to combine left and right brain thinking, and create a business plan which makes sense and makes you excited, rather than terrifies you and puts you under pressure. Whether you need the plan for investment, or you want the plan as your own guide, we will take you step-by-step through the creation of a growth map to take your business to a whole new level.

Q: How do I know this is going to work?

Because if you truly focus on what matters, get clear on who to serve, and provide them with exactly what they need, it is an undoubted recipe for success. And we know this for sure because it has been tried and tested by over 300 entrepreneurs at development stage, who have seen major growth, stronger profits, bigger impact and a much better work-life balance as a result. Crucially they are happier in their businesses, and feel more valued and valuable now.
