—  a course designed to help you finally start a profitable and purposeful business you love.

iPad displaying the Start The Right Business course

This course was made for you, especially if you’ve been held back by fear, indecision and confusion about how to get your own small business started.

Nothing is more gut wrenching than knowing you’re meant to do something great in this world, but you’re not able to move ahead because you’re unclear. Add to that the anxiety that comes from the constant, gnawing sense of time slipping by and the recurring thought that you should be much further ahead by now.

Hi, I’m Marie Forleo and, as an entrepreneur myself and the founder of an Inc. 500 fastest growing educational company that supports small business owners, this frustration is close to my heart.

After hearing from thousands of my readers who struggle with this exact issue, I wanted to help. I discovered most aspiring-yet-stuck entrepreneurs struggle with one of three core problems:

You lack good ideas

“I want my own business sooo bad but I don’t know what it should be. How do I come up with good, viable ideas? Seems like all the good ideas are already taken.”

You have too many ideas

“I’m multipassionate and I’m afraid to pick just one thing to focus on. I don’t want to limit myself or, worse, pick the wrong one for my business!”

You’re not sure your idea will actually work

“I know what I want to do, but I haven’t started yet. I’m afraid to make a mistake and fail. How can I be sure my idea is going to work before I put myself out there?"

You’re about to learn exactly how to start the right business for you so that you can finally do what you’re meant to do in this world — and give yourself the best possible chance for success.

What You Won't Get

In Start The Right Business, we do not cover how to secure VC funding, bank loans or investment capital, manufacturing, distribution, outsourcing, hiring staff or how to start a zero revenue, high acquisition cost tech business (think Instagram).

We’re also not covering anything dealing with choosing legal business structures, crafting business plans, financial forecasting, insurance, trademarking or anything granular relating to legal, taxes or liability. For all legal, insurance and tax ad­vice, you need to consult your attorney and your accountant.

There are two specific outcomes we’re focused on in this course:

  1. Getting you crystal clear on the right business idea for you — one that matches your strengths, skills, values and life goals
  2. Getting you to take smart, strategic, consistent action to bring your idea to life

How It Works

Start The Right Business is a self-paced online course. You control when you start and finish. After you enroll in the course, you’ll have access to work through the Lessons at your own pace from your laptop or mobile device.

Please note: This digital program is not available in printed or physical form. We’re a green company and try to keep our carbon footprint as light as possible.

Life-Changing.

This. Has. Been. LIFE CHANGING. Seriously, this piece alone sums up the bulk of why I’ve struggled so much as a business owner. I missed all of this when I started out ages ago and am oh-so-grateful to be getting it now!! It’s never too late. Thank you again. Such amazing content. I found it to be EXTREMELY valuable, even though I've been in business for 15 years.

By Far, The Best Thing I’ve Done In Years

Start The Right Business was by far the best thing I've done in years. It was wonderfully helpful, the exercises brought so much clarity to my ideas. Very empowering, I wish I'd discovered Start the Right Business years ago.

Would've Launched Something Meaningless

Without this course, I would’ve launched a meaningless money grubbing burnout business and ended up right where I started: needing a new life. Your process even led me to discover a whole new industry.

A Great Tool

It is a great tool to clearing out any questions on what you want to do and, more importantly, how to test out your ideas. I find a lot of resources are great for saying you need to figure this out but leave out how to go about implementing your idea.

Why I Created This
Course

For the past 17 years, I’ve been running my own successful business. I grew (very slowly) from a one-woman shop to an Inc. 500 fastest growing company. I’ve helped thousands of others start and grow businesses, too.

Through MarieTV, my online show with close to 30 million views, one of the biggest and most frequent questions I’m asked is how to get started in business — especially when you’re afraid to fail, torn between a lot of different business ideas and lost about what to do next.

I really wanted to help. Especially because I remember how painful it was when I first got my business started. I felt overwhelmed, insecure and without a clue on how to best move ahead. So I’ve taken the most important lessons (and the expensive mistakes) both myself and thousands of others have made, and turned it into a clear, action-oriented and affordable roadmap.

FAQs

How much time do I need?

It’s a self-guided online course, so you can take this at your own pace. It’s impossible for us to estimate how long it will take you to complete the course because we can’t determine how clear you are on your goals and dreams, how much research you’ve already done or need to do, how quickly you make decisions or how fast you’re able (or willing) to take action.

How long can I access the lessons?

For as long as you’d like! Once you enroll, you can immediately access your Lessons from any desktop or mobile device, for the lifetime of the course.

Is there a chance to get feedback or support?

Yes! At least twice a year we hold private group coaching calls to answer your top questions, share new ideas and do what we can to help you keep growing. Plus, our customer happiness team is always just an email away.

What if I’m not satisfied with the course?

If you've done the work and honestly feel you didn't get value from the experience, submit your coursework within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll promptly issue a refund.

To be clear, if you do not include your completed coursework within the 30 day period, no refund will be issued.
