Learn how to make more money in less time

Boost your CEO skills and learn how to make more money in less time.

  • Do you want to figure out how to consistently make the money you want from your business?
  • Are you working too much and/or getting too lost in the day-to-day weeds to grow?
  • Do you never quite feel like you have the right skills to make your vision happen?
  • Are you wondering whether you’re CEO material?
  • Do you want to avoid going back to a job?
  • Are you feeling a little overwhelmed running a company for the first time?

I’ve been there. I know how it feels. And I know how to fix it.

The CEO Confidence Course: The 6-Week Start-Up School for Self-Funded Founders

Over the last five years, as I’ve worked 1:1 with self-funded women founders, I’ve honed the tools, resources, and insider knowledge that help women break through and exceed their biggest expectations, without working nonstop (unless they want to). I’ve combined that with academic tools and concepts that actually make a difference. Using this framework, you can be on your way to where you want to go in six weeks!

What will I learn?

We work in a small mastermind cohort of up to 10 women CEOs. It’s just more fun when we’re in it together! We’ll share where we’re at, where we’re getting stuck, and where we’d like to go. And we’ll get rid of the garbage thoughts around where we’ve made mistakes, especially when it comes to finances.

We’ll skyrocket your knowledge and skills on the five essential areas that drive business growth:

  • What’s your vision? What should you be offering based on your passion?
  • Who wants to buy it? What’s your dream customer?
  • How do we build packages and offers that fulfill 1 and 2?
  • How do we assure we’ll be profitable and fund our goals? How do we de-risk and make this business a predictable machine?
  • What should we spend on people, services, technology, and support?

What do I get?

The CEO Confidence course includes:

  • Weekly mastermind sessions
  • 1:1 strategy session with me and private office hours during the course
  • My self-guided workbook with what to do more of and what to stop doing
  • 6 months to use my self-guided videos and resources
  • Tax savings tips
  • AMA with my accountant
  • My simplified forecasting tool
  • A profitability check to test out your ideas
  • Unit economics calculator
  • Staffing and sourcing plan
  • Validated 12-month operating budget
  • Access to power hours & membership

This framework is a shortcut past the years of “lessons learned” it takes to get where you want to go as a self-funded business owner. You can design your work for the financial and life goals you want. You don’t answer to investors or shareholders — just your vision and goals. You can get off the hamster wheel and make work work for you. And you can decide what to do with the profits, like paying fair wages and providing great benefits, saving for retirement, or even investing in your community or a cause you believe in as a social enterprise.

Money well spent: Invest in yourself and yield strong ROI.

The course is valued at $27,690. The tax savings tips alone pay for more for most of my 1:1 engagements.

Beyond the financial upside, the course also leaves you with:

  • Reduced stress and anxiety around running your business.
  • Actionable strategies for achieving your financial goals.
  • A plan for hiring experienced help in your business and your home.
  • Improved management and strategy skills to run your business more efficiently.
  • A blueprint to flex your schedule for whatever you need – caregiving, self-care, virtual school, community involvement, vacation.
  • Increased confidence in your ability to run the business and have the life you want.

The fee: $2,995, with the option to pay in three installments.

The CEO Confidence Course

The 6-Week Start-Up School for Self-Funded Founders
created by Jill James

Week 1:
Focus on You – what’s your vision and passion? Where do you want to be a year from now? How do we use that in your business? Plus, basics of building your strategic plan.

Week 2:
Define Your Customer – you aren’t a commodity. Competing on price or volume will not be a winning strategy. So who values what you love to do, and how do we tailor our work to that dream customer?

Week 3:
Offerings and Packages – How do we build attractive, high-value packages and products that deliver on our promise to our dream customer and fulfill our goals?

Week 4:
Revenue and Costs – here’s where you’ll learn the power of unit economics. Are you earning enough profit to make your business work? When you are, how does it change your approach?

Week 5:
Who You Need (Staffing & Sourcing) – Now that you know you can afford them, what people do you need, whether on payroll, contracted, or on an extended professional team?

Week 6:
Running Your Company (Operating Costs & Tax Savings) – know exactly what it will cost to serve that dream customer and run your business. Set up those bills on autopay because you know you can afford them. And learn to use the tax benefits of your business to your best advantage.

Bonus Items!

Cohort members also:

  • Learn all the common tax deductions you’re missing, often worth tens of thousands per year!
  • Get aligned with your accountant by managing your relationship like a CEO to get the information and support that you need. I facilitate an AMA with my trusted accountant on why we have yucky feelings about math, money, and keeping score.
  • Get resources and introductions for business insurance, legal, payroll, operations, retirement plans, and financial planning.
  • Cover your behind with a business insurance review so you can understand the value of protection and how much it typically costs.
  • Automate and standardize to get your businesses running on rails with tips and tools from an operations specialist.

I knew some of these things, but I wasn’t using them intentionally. Now I know how to be intentional in running my business and getting results.

Nancy, leadership coach

I’m not afraid of spreadsheets anymore! For me, that’s a big win. It was insightful to see what I should charge to be profitable.

Lisa, creative agency owner

“Wow, I can’t believe I wasn’t doing and thinking about these ideas already. I want to do the work in the CEO Confidence course because I feel empowered and know what I’m doing now. I’m not just running some hobby; it’s a legit business. Now I feel like I’ve got this.”
