Beyond Solo Academy — JOIN US - Business Exponential

Online business courses for location-independent entrepreneurs who want to grow their business beyond themselves.

Do You Want To Own a Business That DOESN'T OWN YOU?

End the overwhelm. Grow your revenue. Make your business work for you. 

The Coronavirus showed everybody how 

vulnerable most businesses are. 

Picture 21 million business owners - 70% of all small businesses in the U.S. - who were working to make a good living and control their destiny when the Pandemic Pause pulled the rug out from under them.


Most were owned by one person. Solos who work as business advisors and B2B consultants were hit especially hard. They are so dedicated to their clients, they don't have time to focus on THEIR business.


When the crisis struck, they didn't have a cushion of cash reserves. They had trouble getting EIDL and PPP and other government funding. They were left scrambling to figure out what to do next.

There's a difference between doing great work ...
and running a business that does great work.

Beyond Solo Academy is here to give solo entrepreneurs like you the keys to grow your business beyond yourself - and experience the freedom you imagined when you first started. Keys that used to be the exclusive preserve of high-end firms positioning for multi-million dollar exits.

What if the pandemic didn't have to amplify the chaos? What if you could...

  • Continue 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 

As a sole owner, you've learned first-hand there's a lot to running a business. But no one taught you this. How do you find time to get everything done? How can you work on your business, not in it? How do you get the results you want without getting stuck in the day-to-day grind ... and losing sight of the big picture?


Chaos and  struggle is a recipe for misery ... or worse, bankruptcy.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

You now have the opportunity to take control and rebuild your business so it fulfills your life and your pocketbook. Introducing...


Why An Academy?

Our world is better when there's a thriving small business economy. I also believe that small businesses can't thrive when they're choking the life out of their owners.


As an SBA award-winning business strategist, attorney, and national media resource, I work every single day with private clients. Helping them grow their knowledge-based businesses with strategy and intention


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


There's still a huge need to know how to run a business that doesn't run you ragged


And so, I created the Academy for you.


So YOU can learn best practices on how to:


> Grow an old-fashioned service business using new world paradigms 

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

> Take time off without worrying your business will suffer

> Achieve success on your terms -- in business and in life

She doesn’t pull any punches, but cuts straight to the heart of an issue with surgeon-like precision and thoughtfully guides you to a workable and practical solution.

More insider secrets you'll access in the Beyond Solo Academy:


  • Tools, like online learning on how to streamline your business, earn what you deserve, and pivot for growth

  • Confidence that you're no longer spinning your wheels and are building your business to work best for you


Is Beyond Solo Academy is a fit for you?

1 - Are you a knowledge expert?

We do our best work targeting business advisors and B2B consultants and their firms. People who sell their knowledge and expertise to other companies. (That's my background, so I know it well).


You see, running a knowledge-based or professional service business that serves business customers has unique challenges. Challenges that are different from manufacturing, software, construction trade, or product-based businesses -- precisely because what you sell is an intangible. And often involve one-off project work.  

That's why our tools and resources focus on independent professionals and business owners 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. 


Is that you?

2 - Do you value self-development

and learning?

The Coronavirus Crisis showed us there's no substitute for sound business operations when the sh*t hits the fan. But lots of business advisors and B2B consultants never had the chance to learn about business systems. (They sure don't teach that in school). But you need systems and operations to have repeat business.


If you're hankering to build a leaner, more profitable business that supports the life you want, you know just doing great work isn't enough. That's what got you where you are now. For all you sacrifice, you deserve more.


You already put your mind to work delivering your services to your clients. In the Academy, you'll just shift some of that brain-power to building the engine of your business. So you can take time off without worrying your business will suffer. If learning is your "happy place" -- maybe you love research, are already reading a book a month, taking continuing education courses, are engaged in personal development -- this will be a natural fit. 


Would you like to short-cut your learning curve?

3 - Are you willing to try a new approach to get results?

The Academy provides actionable, plain-English guidance on how to adapt your business so it's sustainable, profitable, and fulfilling -- however you define that. Guidance like how to get busy work off your plate so you can focus without distraction. How to build a team without months of missteps. Serve without reinventing the wheel. Grow without the burnout. Have a life without the chaos. Get more freedom over your time.


It's been said:  Without knowledge, action is useless ... and knowledge without action is futile.


That's why the Academy gives you lots of step-by-step guidance through workbooks, exercises, and questions. Our monthly training calls include real-time Q&A. So you can act on what you learn. Implement those tactics you feel will move your business forward best. Remember: DIY doesn't have to mean do it alone. You can find a team to help you. (Our programs will make you wiser, too, when it comes to hiring.)


Are you ready to reinvigorate your business ... and yourself?

Who's Behind the Academy?

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. 

HERE'S WHAT CLIENTS AND OTHERS HAVE SAID

"Nina was a godsend for me and my business!"

"I was challenged with a desire to move my business in a new direction and all the fear that comes with going into the unknown.  Nina gave me the support and encouragement to “go for it!” Working with Nina I have been able to productize my business offerings, develop a marketing strategy and cultivate new business leads. Thanks to our work together, I have upgraded my financial management tools and am embarking on a redesign of my website and online presence. Nina taught how to be smarter with contracting and negotiating. I’ve developed more confidence as a business owner and have already seen an increase in revenue from our work.  Last but not least, Nina has a wonderful sense of humor so all of this was fun and engaging!"

Marian Rich  |  Executive Coach and Comic Educator

"[Nina] would be an asset to any business"

"Nina did an amazing job presenting her breakout session at the Enterprising Women annual awards conference. She absolutely nailed the benefits of scaling your company by using strategic alliances. Nina was engaging, insightful, and on-target. She’s a strategic advisor who clearly enjoys her work (and knows her stuff) and encourages entrepreneurs to do the same. She really gets the WHY and the WHAT of helping service companies scale so that owners can build a sustainable business that supports the life they want to lead. She’d be an asset to any business … and any small business conference."

Anna Pappas  Sr. Strategic Client Advisor  |  Bluewolf (IBM)

"Nina is a consummate professional."

"Few business advisors have the ability to make risk management for business engaging and compelling. Nina manages to make even the most dry topic interesting.

She is the trusted advisor to hundreds of small businesses across industries and knows the challenges of partnerships from the inside. She presents the landmines and solutions with a hilarious wit that is a welcome departure from her boring peers.

Nina is also an internet veteran. Her first-hand experience in building an on-line presence is invaluable to those of us still groping in the dark. Any opportunity you have to hear Nina Kaufman speak, drop what you’re doing. Her knowledge and integrity are second to none."

Why only $99/month?


You may be thinking, This has got to be crap if she's only charging $99/month. After all, you get what you pay for, right?


Wrong.


I work with high-end private clients all the time. But I understand not everyone's at that level. I know how difficult this road can be. I know the frustration of trying to get a business to run like a well-oiled machine. 


Sorting through that is SO much harder when you don't have millions in venture capital funding thrown at you. When your family depends on your success.  When you have to figure it all out and bootstrap it by yourself. And 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.


Join now, and that's your price for as long as you stay in the program.
