Start building a brilliant business now >>
Before I enrolled I had reservations about the cost and I knew I was going away so wouldn’t be able to complete it in the 6 weeks. After enrolling I forgot all about the cost. Great information that has really helped me define what I need to change and work out which parts to focus on first. The thing I liked best was the intelligent approach driven by a proper background and it was hugely beneficial being able to connect with others.Alice, Artist www.alicesheridan.com

The course offered much more material in greater depth than I was expecting. The bite-sized fillable documents forced me to think things through. It covered every possible aspect of running a business. It was very clearly laid out and possible to scale, depending on the size of business and individual needs. One of the other benefits was the ability to ask questions and talk things through with the Chief Brainy Girl. I would definitely recommend this course to others.
Q. Is this a real MBA?
No. The Brainy Girl MBA is a 6 week online business course designed specifically for women entrepreneurs.
Q. How does the Brainy Girl MBA compare with a 'real' MBA?
The Brainy Girl MBA is designed with your needs in mind. A 'real' MBA usually takes a year to complete full-time. The Brainy Girl MBA is just 6 weeks long because Brainy Girls are short of time. A 'real' MBA costs between £15,000 and £50,000. The Brainy Girl MBA is affordably priced. 'Real' MBAs are designed for students to move into corporate jobs at the end. The Brainy Girl MBA is designed for entrepreneurs. 'Real' MBAs are primarily designed by men for men in a male dominated corporate world. The Brainy Girl MBA is designed for busy entrepreneurial women. 50% of the marks for a 'real' MBA are usually awarded for the 'entrepreneurial' project. On the Brainy Girl MBA you work on a real business. Your business.
Q. How much time will I need to spend on the course?
The course is designed so that it doesn't take up too much of your time. You'll need to set aside a couple of hours a week to work through the training videos and take part in the Q&A sessions (or listen to the replay). However, this is a course where you don't just learn, you take action so the results you get will be a reflection of the time you invest. Remember, everything you do on the course will be working towards building and growing your business so any time you spend will be a valuable investment.
Q. On a 'real' MBA you are sometimes asigned a mentor. Will I be asigned a mentor?
If you enrol on the 'live' version of the course you will get support from Lynsey throughout the duration of the course via the Q&A calls and online Q&A sessions. We also encourage you to find a 'buddy' to keep you accountable and help you stay on track. Simply ask in the Facebook group. Everyone who enrols, whether on the 'live' version or self-study version will have access to the private Facebook Group where Lynsey will be available to answer any questions and provide support. If you would like mentoring from Lynsey, an option to sign up for Lynsey's mentoring mentoring programs is available to everyone who enrols on the Brainy Girl MBA at 33% discount, if taken up within 3 months of enrolment. There will be no obligation to sign up for mentoring. This is simply an optional extra that can be taken up if it is something you feel you will benefit from after taking the course. For most of Lynsey's mentoring programs the discount more than covers the cost of the Brainy Girl MBA.(Please note that places on Lynsey's mentoring programs are subject to availability and some programs are by application only).
Q. What happens if I miss a week? Will I be able to catch up?
If you're taking part in the live version we would encourage you to try and keep up with the course schedule however we recognise that life gets in the way sometimes and it's easy to fall a little behind. That's why you'll be able to download all of the course materials to keep so if you fall behind you can catch up in your own time. We've also designed Week 6 as a consolidation week. It's a chance to catch up and consolidate your learning from the course, pulling everything together into your personalised Ultimate Business Plan. Although there are still activities in Week 6, the workload is lighter than the other weeks and if you've only fallen a little behind you should be able to catch up then.
Q. I don't really know anything about business. Is this course for me?
Yes absolutely. This course is designed to provide the 4 Foundations for Building a Brilliant Business.We've also compiled a list of resources but if there is anything else you need to know that you don't feel is covered we'll be happy to point you in the right direction. Just ask in the Facebook group.
Q. I already have an MBA. Is this course for me?
If your MBA covered the psychology of running a business, putting in place systems and structures for maximising productivity and growing your business, and setting goals and creating powerful action plans, this probably isn't for you. On the other hand, if like my Masters in Business Management, your MBA didn't cover those things then this course is for you! In fact we already have at least one Graduate from the course who already had an MBA prior to enrolling.
Q. Why is the course only £497?
The course is designed to be accessible to women serious about building a successful business. Most women simply don't have the money when they're starting out (or time) to enrol on a 'real' MBA at the cost of up to £50,000.
Q. What if I can't afford £497?
No matter what you read elsewhere all businesses require investment, even those with minimal overheads such as home-based businesses. If you complete all the exercises on the course including your Ultimate Business Plan and Marketing Strategy we believe you will quickly see a return on your investment. We can't guarantee you will - in the end it's up to you how much of the course you implement but the course is designed to equip you with the tools and the confidence to make good business decisions. We even teach you how to take risks in business. Any investment is a risk. We consider this to be an extremely low risk investment!
If you still don't believe you can afford to invest in this program we do offer 3 scholarships when we run the course 'live'. Keep checking back here for news of the next 'live' presentation of the course. Obviously these scholarships are competitive so if you CAN afford to invest in the course we would strongly recommend you do so rather than holding out for a scholarship place.
