Beyond Solo Academy — JOIN US - Business Exponential

GROW YOUR BUSINESS

BEYOND YOURSELF

Online business courses to end the overwhelm. Earn what you deserve.

Achieve the personal and financial freedom you always wanted. 

The Coronavirus gave you new problems.

It gave you new perspective, too. 

21 million solo business owners in the U.S. were trying to make a good living when the Pandemic Pause said how can I mess with your business THIS year?

Many provided B2B marketing, consulting, creative, and professional services. Brilliant life-long learners who went out on their own 5, 10, 20 years ago. Taught themselves what they know about running a business.


They are Professional Communicators.

But this isn’t the first time they hit a ceiling, felt strapped or trapped, or wanted more from their business.

It's a nasty recurring cycle. Because they haven’t figured out how to grow a business beyond themselves.

The Beyond Solo Academy offers a breakthrough for Professional Communicators. Our online courses teach you business systems and processes that let you end the overwhelm. Earn what you deserve. Give you tools to ...


> Get beyond the day-to-day grind 

> Say NO! to people, tasks, and opportunities that steal your time

> Target your efforts, money, and energy for effective results

> Take time off without worrying your business will suffer

> Achieve the business results you've always wanted 

Why Professional Communicators Get Stuck

You may be asking yourself,

With all of my mad skills and credentials, why am I not getting the business results I expected?

  In a word ... (click to read on)

.... bottleneck.


Bottleneck means you’re making all the decisions. Touching all points of your business.


Which limits your income, growth, and life.


If you’re a B2B professional, you probably learned your craft in school. You’re super-smart. Creative. A go-to person for solving problems.

But most business models for your kind of work are based on a 16th-century guild craftsman approach. You become an apprentice. You shadow an experienced professional who micromanages how you do the work. (It’s their reputation on the line, after all). Once you’ve reached mastery, you start your own firm and hire little apprentices.

(Even though you didn't get formal training on how to run a business.)

That’s how advertising agencies and accounting firms and BigLaw were born.


Achieving status by accumulating employees and office space and other trappings of success.

In essence, a 400-year-old business model is imprinted on your psyche like a ranch brand on cattle.

Completely unnecessary in the 21st century.

That's why it's a challenge for Professional Communicators to ...

  • Pay yourself consistently 
  • Focus beyond just putting out the next fire
  • Have time to think about adapting your business to new conditions
  • Find good help and delegate easily
  • Have the clients you love to serve chase you
  • Take time off without worrying your business will suffer 
  • Create a path to financial freedom 

Growing your business beyond yourself requires business systems and processes …


… which no one taught you.


So it’s not your fault.


I’ve seen that knowledge gap thousands of times over the past 20+ years as an attorney, strategist, and national media resource for small businesses. In the contracts, on the conference calls, at the sales table, and more. 


That's why super-talented business owners wonder, Why am I still working until 10pm every night? Why is my client suing me? Why do I have to tell my employee the same thing for the 1000th time? Why isn’t my business worth more after all this time? 

 

I know the frustrations all too well…

My Own Challenges Running a Firm


… because I went through that too. Law school taught me about being a lawyer -- NOT about running a business that offered legal services.


I had my own mad skills and credentials, yet wasn’t getting the business results I expected either.


(I talk about that in this video....)

But I knew there had to be an answer, and I was determined to find it.

I explored all avenues. Figured out the keys to a business where I don't have to be the bottleneck.  So I can earn what I deserve. And have a life.


(They don’t teach you that in "real" school.)


I've put all those years of experience and learning together into one package ...


... which is now available to YOU

Introducing: The Beyond Solo Academy


The Academy is the result of that decade-long search for answers.

It's the knowledge base that shows you how to rebuild your business so it fulfills your life and your pocketbook.


Wouldn’t you enjoy results like these clients have had?

  • Devon was a high-end designer who had roadblocks in his invoicing processes. This prevented thousands of dollars in receivables from being billed for nearly a year. With a better workflow patterns and checklist systems, Devon recovered nearly $125,000 within 4 months.
  • Ingrid owned a bookkeeping firm and wanted to scale her business. She had a good retainer model but wasn’t tracking time. Within 6 months, she had systems for evaluating which clients were most profitable, and the tools to hire team members effectively.
  • Sandra wanted more Fortune 5000 clients for her web development firm but had trouble getting in the door and closing deals. She learned to identify key qualities for strategic partners. Within two years, one alliance brought a $300,000 client.

3 Qs to see if the Beyond Solo Academy is a fit for you

1 - Are you a Professional Communicator?  

Running a knowledge-based or professional service business that supports business clients has unique challenges. Challenges that differ from manufacturing, software, construction trade, or product-based businesses -- precisely because what you sell is an intangible. This is where we do our best work.  

That's why our tools and resources focus on independent professionals and communications experts in areas like Marketing, Consulting, Creative, Strategy, Communications, Branding, Events, Coaching, Speaking, and other professional services like law and accounting that get delivered to other businesses.

2 - Do you value self-development?

You KNOW that just doing great work isn't enough. That's what got you where you are now. You need systems and operations for repeat success.


You already put your mind to work delivering your services to your clients. In the Academy, you'll just shift some brain-power to building the engine of your business. If learning is your "happy place" -- maybe you love research, already read a book a month, take continuing education courses, engage in personal development -- this will be a natural fit.

3 - Do you want to short-cut your success?

The Academy provides actionable, plain-English guidance to build a leaner, more profitable business that supports the life you want. Guidance like how to get busy work off your plate so you can focus. Build a team without months of missteps. Serve without reinventing the wheel. Grow without the burnout. Say "no" to time wasters.


Our monthly training calls include real-time Q&A. Workbooks, exercises, and questions take you through step-by-step. So you can act on what you learn. And stop being the bottleneck -- faster.

Straight-Talk about the Academy


I'm an SBA-award winning business strategist, attorney, and national media resource who works every day with high-end private clients.


But I understand not everyone's at that level. Not everyone wants -- or is ready for -- a 1-2-1 hands-on approach. Or even for the group coaching offered in my Beyond Solo Inner Circle. That’s okay.


Professional Communicators still have a huge need to know how to run a business that doesn't run you ragged.


Sorting through systems and processes is SO much harder when you don't have millions in venture capital funding thrown at you. When you have bootstrap and figure it out yourself. When your family depends on your success.  When you constantly sacrifice so others' lives can be better.


That's heroic stuff. And I like working with heroes


So I asked myself a question you'll hear often in the Academy.


(Because moving beyond time-for-dollars is an important pillar of our teachings).


How can I get this valuable guidance to all the solo business owners who need it -- in a time- and cost-effective way? 


ANSWER: By leveraging a digital platform and the power of community support.


You have a rare opportunity right now to remake your business. To say "NO" to the old way you've been running your business.


I want to make this a no-brainer for you to say "YES" so you can pivot, streamline, and earn what you deserve. 


THAT's why I'm charging only $99/month for the first 100 members.

About Our Founder

My name is Nina Kaufman.


For over two decades, I’ve worked with thousands of solopreneurs and solo business owners. Showing them how to get beyond the day-to-day grind with solid business operations. An SBA-award-winning business strategist and attorneyI’ve been a media resource for outlets like Entrepreneur.com, Forbes.com, Wall Street Journal, Mashable, MSNBC’s Your Business, Fox′s Good Day NY, and SAP Radio. I've steered my companies through soaring highs and depressing lows like September 11th, Superstorm Sandy, and shuttering my first business. (For more backstory, see my video, above). I love owning two successful B2B service businesses, and the freedom it gives me to be me -- a former stand-up comic and rabbi who geeks out on systems, processes, and the planetarium. Way too quirky for BigLaw or the Fortune 500.
