PROGRAM DETAILS

We provide the knowledge, tools and support entrepreneurs need and your organization with a turn-key way to have an impact.

HOW IT WORKS FOR ENTREPRENEURS

The Learning Community organizes what your audience needs to know into the 12 business and personal areas they must master:

  • Setting Up A Business
  • Generating Revenue
  • Running Your Business
  • Managing Yourself
  • Differentiating Your Offering
  • Marketing
  • Leading The Company
  • Raising Money
  • People
  • Communication
  • Finance
  • Legal

We’ve organized what entrepreneurs need to know – lessons, templates, tools, and vendor reviews – into the 12 business and personal areas we all face.

Your participants have access to 300+ bite-sized lessons that give them the answers to the key questions entrepreneurs should be asking. Not just any answers… Answers that make a difference. And not just business-focused answers… Answers that address the personal issues that are too often overlooked. Beating the competition. Driving sales. Building a plan. Managing oneself . Social media. Lots of questions. One place for answers.

Each week, there are a series of online group coaching sessions that all entepreneurs can attend.  Coaches from The Lonely Entrepreneur cover a variety of topics and help attendees with their most pressing questions.

Participants become part of our online community of fellow entrepreneurs where they can share, grow and learn together. We guide participants with daily tips and insights and provide responses that answer their most pressing questions. They also have the opportunity to connect with us and fellow entrepreneurs as they embark on their journey to start or grow their business. Through the online community, we guide them to the knowledge they need to be a successful entrepreneur.

We’ve organized all the tools and templates individuals need to start and grow a business. From investor presentations, to cash flow statement, to a marketing plan, to non-disclosure agreement  All the tools and templates an entrepreneur commonly needs can be found in one place.

We cut through the noise to present unbiased reviews of the key third-party software and business solutions that entrepreneurs will need in their businesses. Your audience will have access to feedback on all the relevant tools,  from accounting to task management to CRM to marketing automation.

Entrepreneurs enroll free of charge with a simple online or mobile registration.

From the moment individuals sign up, we connect with them in an ongoing engagement model, made easy with our online community. Our model begins with initial invitations and welcome, and continues with daily posts, enabling participants to ‘follow’ topics they like, quickly answering content questions and directing to learning resources, hosting weekly events, live chatting, and facilitating participants’ engagement with each other.

HOW IT WORKS FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION

There are two primary methods for identifying recipients for the program. The choice is yours:

  • You designate specific groups you want to empower. We then provide the solution to one of the many groups we work with of that type of individual.

  • You can also recommend groups that you have relationships with individuals in your target group.

Either way, once you decide, we handle the entire process for getting your target group into the program.
