Like a Boss: The Hello Fearless School for Women EntrepreneursRieva Lesonsky
Are you a woman looking to start a business, trying to get a startup off the ground or seeking help growing your fledgling company? Then Hello Fearless’s “Boss School” for women entrepreneurs might be just the place for you.
Hello Fearless founder Sara Davidson had lots of experience in startups—first working for them, then founding a consulting company to help launch startups around the world. But along the way, she started to get burned out by the demands of the 24/7 startup life and decided, “There’s got to be a better way!”
So she launched Hello Fearless, an organization that seeks to help women launch, grow and scale businesses aimed at unlocking human potential and changing the world—while still maintaining the personal lives they want. The overarching belief behind Hello Fearless: “We believe that women can have it all–in business and life!” the website announces.
Hello Fearless partners with business organizations including the Women’s Business Center, YEC and the Kauffman Foundation to provide women entrepreneurs with the best-in-class education, mentoring, tools and support they need to reach their goals.
The first session of the Hello Fearless educational program, Boss School, is set to kick off September 28; enrollment is still open. Boss School will use the Kauffman Foundation’s FastTrac online curriculum, specifically tailored to women entrepreneurs, together with lectures and training programs from experts nationwide. The goal is to help students develop businesses without destroying their health, relationships or well-being. “Entrepreneurship is more than just building a successful company. It’s about building an extraordinary life,” Davidson told Silicon Prairie News.
The courses are held online; students will follow different themed lesson modules each week for 10 weeks. Each module is available via video, audio and transcription for a variety of learning options. Every week, a guest related to the theme will host a Google Hangout with students; a Facebook group will provide additional chances for interaction among students.
The Boss School isn’t just for startups—Davidson says it’s also suited for any female entrepreneur who owns a one- to three-year-old business that she wants to strengthen and grow.
The 10-week course costs $1,200. For more information, sign up to get emails and notifications at Hello Fearless.
