B-School 2013 Scholarship Winners Announced!

288

Since last week, we’ve been poring through nearly 600 scholarship entries videos for B-School. (That’s a record high for us!)

It’s been an absolute privilege, on behalf of myself and my team, to watch each and every video that has been submitted this year.

We’ve been laughing, crying, hootin’, hollerin’ and sending notes back and forth all week. Most of the time, though, we’ve just been in serious awe of you.

Who you are, your courage, your insight, your creativity and your willingness to go for it.

As you know, we believe in the power of B-School and sincerely hope you’ll join us for it.

But if, for whatever reason it’s not the right fit, know that we’re still cheering you on. We will continue to be here for you: providing education and inspiration each and every week, for free.

I’ll be honest, when I first announced this contest, I didn’t know what to expect. You’ll see that you’ve inspired me to award a lot more scholarships than any of us imagined.

**If your name is on this list, write to us at bschool at marie forleo dot com with SCHOLARSHIP WINNER in the subject line, then we’ll send you information on accepting your scholarship. Since we’re in the middle of B-School enrollment, our email volume is waaay higher than usual, so please be patient. We’ll make sure you’re fully taken care of well before the course begins!

One of the best things we have in life is each other — and the power of this community.

I am so grateful for the positivity, the love and support we always share with each other. So please take a moment to share your congratulations by commenting below.

Once again, a HUGE thank you for sharing your heart and vision with us and the world.

As we watched each video, we blessed every person, their family and their dreams. Please know that it was no easy feat for us and we are so grateful for your participation.

P.S. Since many have asked, B-School enrollment closes on Monday March 4th at 3pm EST. We likely won’t run it again ‘til 2014. If you know you’re gonna do it, c’mon board now and take advantage of the intro bonus program. Our B-Schoolers (newbies & grads alike) are LOVIN’ it!!

With all my love and sincerest appreciation,

Marie Forleo

why do I just want to burst into tears of joy?
As I kept scrolling and seeing the amount of talent and the amount of genrosity on your part Marie to offer this many scholorships I found myself getting choked up with emotion…in the best possible way.
So excited to be participating as a “graduate”….It will actually be the first time I have focussed and truly participated.
So grateful to you Marie for honoring “life time” B-School access…again more generosity and it speaks to who you are as a person.
You ROCK.
merci beaucoup.

Hi Everyone,

I am ELATED for all scholarship recipients, but am heartbroken that I missed the deadline. I saw on this page: https://s3.amazonaws.com/bschool/BSchoolProductTour2013.pdf that “As long as you’re on the list at JoinBSchool.com, you’ll be notified of the scholarship details, dates and participation guidelines. ”

I’m so sad I missed the deadline. When was notification sent out? I’m on the list. Did I join too late? I had already made my video and was awaiting further instruction via email.

Do you all think it’s too late to try to campaign on Indiegogo for the funds to pay for B-School? I REALLY don’t want to sit out a whole year but can’t afford B-School in addition to my Life Coaching training classes. Please someone!!! ANY ADVICE????!!!!

Reply

Sasha

Shakara, I missed the notification too and I had my video :( …had been following this since it started but happy that so many from my region of the world got picked.

Hope we both get in somehow, Shakara :).

Lots of love!

ShaKara A.

Me too!

Marlon

Hi ShaKara!

I’m right there with you! I’m amazed at the amount of winners and want to wish them all HUGE congratulations! But, I have no idea how I missed the boat?! I video taped myself as well and was going to edit, seeing as I didn’t hear about the scholarship deadline though I’m on the b-school list. I began to assume it was march 4th, the end of enrollment.

Indiegogo could definitely work but also check out benevolent.com and kick starter. I’ll have to figure this out too since I can’t afford bschool alone at this time.

Marie could you let us know where our overlook was?

Much love to everyone here! Doing my best not to let this get me down. Have to keep moving forward!

Marie Forleo

Hi All! Happy to share the details. We offer scholarships every year, and we send out the details in multiple places: via email, on the launch blog (under the free training vids) on Facebook and on Twitter. This year, the contest was from Wednesday Feb. 13 — Monday Feb 18th, and as we always do – we put the word out, sent out reminders via email, FB, etc. We do our very best to share as much as we can in as many places as we can! I’m so sorry you missed it, but please know that we do this every year and we’d love to see you participate in the future! If you have any other q’s you can always write us — info at marieforleo dot com.
xoxo

Hi Marie,

I have been following these scholarships since you first started offering them a few years back. The contest details may have missed some of us as I did my best to scan all the emails that were sent out for any word about it. I eventually assumed the deadline from what I could see on Facebook and I submitted my video from best guess. Unfortunately, I was a few hours too late.

Thank you still for the opportunity to consolidate my weak areas and to go braver in the video arena!!! I feel the love through your all-round generosity even with this tiny glitch.

Reply

Steph Burton

Hi Ladies,

First off, CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners, big LOVE!! Your stories are so inspiring and uplifting and I KNOW you will change the world with your many talents! It’s because of you all that I entered the contest to begin with.

I have to mention that I also somehow missed the deadline information and feel a little silly and disappointed that I worked so hard only to submit so late. Although I had high hopes for the scholarship, I learned a lot about myself and my business while making the video and want to thank you, Marie, for the opportunity to do so. It was well worth my efforts just to see what I could come up with. I hope you ladies that are in my boat can try to see it this way?

I’m going to try and rally the funds somehow for B School and hope to see you all there. To the ladies who missed the deadline, much love and respect to you for putting your story out there. Much LOVE to all of you!!

Reply

ShaKara A.

Me too!!!! I can’t sit out another year. If I don’t get in I’m going to use every resource I can to figure this thing out. I don’y have a year to waste!
Thanks for the other suggestions. Best of luck to you in your endeavors!

Genevieve Parker Hill

Don’t worry ladies, you are not alone. There must have been a bug either with our spam filters, or the scholarship email accidentally didn’t go out to the whole list. I just did an intensive search of my gmail and there’s a gap from the subject line “did you catch this?” on February 11th until the next Marie Forleo email that mentions b-school on February 18 (no mention of scholarship.). Thankfully, I was able to fund my enrollment for b-school without a scholarship (so excited, Marie!) and my hope for you Marlon, Sasha, and ShaKara is that the money will somehow come to you so you can join b-school this year or next.

Reply

Genevieve Parker Hill

Just an additional note that I really wanted to do b-school last year, but just couldn’t swing it financially. I’m so thankful I can this year, but I also feel thankful to the universe because I feel more ready this year.

Marie Forleo

Hey Ladies! Thanks so much for checking your email. Please do look again (just to make sure you’re getting things!). We sent an email out to everyone on Monday Feb 10th with a heads up about the scholarship on Wednesday, then another email on Wednesday Feb 12th, with the subject line “don’t believe the hype” – announcing the scholarship was open and details were on the launch blog. We shared about it on Twitter & FB too. Once again, we do our very best to let everyone know. If you ever suspect you’re not getting something from us, or you have q’s, please write info at marie forleo dot com. We answer everything!! xoxo

Jessicah

Same thing for me! I was waiting to get an email about the scholarship after Marie’s newsletter said on the 11th that it’s coming soon. I always check my Forleo emails. My next one was also on the 18th. Never got this (don’t have FB). And don’t see it on the B-school page (watched all the intro videos & “is this right for you”) Disappointed but glad for the winners. Go ladies!

Buffy Gill

Hi lovely ladies,

Oh wow i’m somewhat relieved to read all this – i completely missed out on the scholarships too even though had my vid ready to roll. Was quietly so gutted inside to see this list of winners on the blog (i feel guilty saying that, eek), not because i got an email update but just because i popped over here to the blog this morning to watch some of marie’s (awesome) vintage vids!

Hey at least we’re all in the same boat! I’m now thinking i’m just going to roll on the credit card to fund it – almost every bit of feedback i’ve read from past b-schoolers is that they completely repaid the tuition fee more than a few times over within only a couple of months of doing b-school, it made their businesses THAT awesome! So i’m pulling out the credit card (and the risk), trusting that it will all pay off in the end. Read a quote last night – the most successful entrepreneurs are thus because of how they deal with fear and risk – they look it in the big furry face!

So join me!! Eek!!

Much love and positive vibes to you all, i’m so excited to watch all of your businesses grow and for our lives to become even more fulfilled and glorious doing what we love. xxx

Jessicah

Buffy, I think your logic is sound. If you feel it, you should do it. I think it’ll all work out for us. And I forgot to congratulate the gents too. Hadn’t watched all the videos yet. Well-deserved wins. I already feel more business inspired just by watching other ppl pursuing their dreams on this page!

Xenia

I also didn’t get this email… and i am definitely very careful about emails… I am going to join the FB group now to make sure i don’t miss it next year… I am very inspired however by all these videos, these lovely ladies ( and guys ) and Marie herself, changing the world and empowering people! I hope to take part next year! ♥

Genevieve Parker Hill

An update! I just checked my spam folder individually (I thought that a regular gmail search also searched spam, but I was wrong!) And the “don’t believe the hype” email was in my spam folder. I have no idea why, because I seem to get every other of Marie’s emails, but there it was. You may want to check your spam and adjust your settings.
Warmly,
Genevieve

I may not be able to attend this year. It’s a little out of my reach, financially right now, even with the payment plan. But on a more positive note:

Congratulations to all the scholarship winners! As much as I would have loved to receive one, my heart goes out to everyone who did. You guys deserve it.

When B-school opens again next year, I’ll be there for sure. :)

Good luck with your training!

We have over 100,000 followers through instagram and facebook that really need me to get our message for healthy living into more lives, and I believe B-School can make that happen for our community.

Congrats to the winners. I remember going through some of the videos when I was looking for inspiration to make mine and I saw Carolina & Constanza and thought it was the cutest video ever and hoped they would win. As much as I would have loved to make it through, I am looking forward to trying again for the scholarship next year. I learned a lot just from finally forcing myself to make a video so I am thankful for the experience, regardless of the outcome.

This was so inspiring to read and watch. . . and totally sent me over the edge and gave me the final push to join. It’s so nice to feel like I’ve found a place where I think I could fit it: where kindness is just as important as intelligence and business smarts. Congrats to all winners, and Thank you to Marie Forleo and team for being so generous. I’ve been researching this for many months now, and after reading the Kris Carr and Danielle Laporte emails and this, I know that this is where I belong! Pulling my funds together and will definitely be enrolling :)

Super bummed I didn’t get it, but super excited for all the winners. Tried to set up a Kickstarter campaign to raise $ for B-School, but they only accept projects. If anyone knows of a platform that I can try to raise $ on – please let me know! Otherwise, I’m going further in credit card debt…but it sounds like it will be worth it.

I thought I was going to be really sad if I didn’t win a scholarship but I just took a breath and reminded myself that I made a freaking video…of myself…talking about my passion…showing tremendous vulnerability… and I made it available for the world to see. I’ve already won! Thanks Marie and team for the huge push, the encouragement and MUCHO inspiration.

Congratulations to all the winners! I want to be a part of your community. This whole experience of pursuing B-School is making me feel better and better about the state of our world and where we’re all headed… together.

I’m going to figure out a way to pay for B-School! Hopefully I’ll see you there! Peace.

Holy lovin’ GRATITUDE…this gives me goosebumps! Thank you Marie Forleo. This moment reflects to me the importance of sticking with your dream no matter what! I am pinching myself! I stayed up all night working on a book deadline listening to tons of your videos. I’m so grateful to have a teacher like you. There was so much I wanted to say in my video…this has been a lifetime in the making. I’m looking forward to inspiring other people through this gift. Wow. Wow. and WOW. Love your energy and how you’ve lit the way for tens of thousands of women. Also, I’m so happy to see Leanne on the list. When I came across her video, my heart swelled with joy. Bex and I are already teaming up to do an interview and I’ve been trying on some of her workouts in between production! Soul sisters overnight. Ha. We all started a B-School community over on facebook and are supporting each other in this journey. This community is precious. I feel so lucky. It’s been so worth it. Whew!!!!

Thanks for pushing me past my comfort zone by doing the YouTube video…ironically I teach how to use social media for marketing a business and now I understand why some of my students are afraid to embrace this wonderful media we have to bring our business to life…locally & globally!

Where to start? Congratulations to all these women (and a few amazing men) who had the courage to put themselves out there to make their dreams come true!
Last year I was in the same place as you: I had big dream and a big vision and no idea of how to manifest it in the world. I trusted that if my message was going to help others, I would be guided to make it spread. Then B-School showed up into my life and EVERYTHING changed. I really can’t explain how much value I’ve got from it: from a dozen of clients, to a network that got me my first speaking agent and probably my first book agent as well! (we’ll know in a few days :)
Now my message will be passed to the world in big ways, as I envisioned. B-School gave me every single tool to put my business into action and to become profitable! It also gave me friendships that I am beyond grateful to have.
Congratulations to all the scholarship winners! I am so proud to see so many Latin people! Bienvenidas chicas! Bienvenido Rodrigo!
Congratulations to anyone who had made the commitment to join this program. Be ready to change your life!
Besos and endless abundance!
Mercedes

What a wonderful people you get to meet, girl. I’m jealous. Because I love people, and I also want to help people and make a huge difference in this world just like you. I hope next time I will have a chance to join B-school just to see what is going on in there, just to have fun and meet you and all these incredible people. At this very moment I’m attending Brendon Bruchard Experts academy and B-school is next. And I can’t wait!!!

Sending you love, light, amazing energy, and lots of blessings as you embark on what I’m confident will be an amazing journey and turning point in your lives AND business! :) <3

I only recently discovered Marie and B-School (that was all kinds of a divine set-up) but in that short time I've discovered the truths and power of Marie and this amazing Online Business School!!! This contest caused me to step out of my comfort zone, to push even further, and to trust more, and I can't help but think that wouldn't have happened if not for Marie, so thank you so much Marie! You are such a beautiful, amazing, wildly talented, and generous spirit!

I know that my life's purpose. I know that I'm called and chosen. I know that B-School is what I need…. So, I BELIEVE that I will get there… Believe that!

Agreed. Forcing myself to step out of my comfort zone (put together a video with a limited amount of time) — AND get my message out in 90 seconds was a HUGE challenge. It reignited my love for putting together presentations and “teaching” in a creative way. Plus, I got to dust off my PowerPoint skills. lol So even though I didn’t “win” this scholarship and had huge challenges getting it finished exactly how I wanted it done (and naturally am super bummed out — I keeps it real!! lol) – I still feel like I won something. I know that we can really do ANYTHING we want – if we put our mind to it.

Best wishes to you Elle and everyone who is taking this course.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

It seems like only yesterday this contest was announced last year, over 400 people entered and ten were chosen to attend.

TODAY, I stand in awe of the over 600 people that applied and the WHOPPING 31 that got their seats!! I am not too surprised though, Marie, is that kinda gal- always ready to GIVE.

When I speak of Marie and my B-School experience to anyone, I tell them that what stood out to me the most is how EMBEDDED being of service is, within the program.

There are so many naysayers who love to talk smack about the fact that people in the personal development field don’t care one bit about the people they service and it used to make me really upset.

Now, I just bless them, it must be hard being that cynical about the world.

The point is :)

When I first learned about Marie & B-School it happened in one fail swoop. I hadn’t been a follower of her work, so it was all brand new to me.

Now almost a year later, I have had a front row seat to the growth of her reach and to be honest I am actually more happy for the year’s winners than I was for myself- I remember what it felt like and my heart swells to know
31 people got to feel that too!

Being a part of this community- changes me daily. I see countless examples of women coming together in support of each other and it makes me grateful to know that much LOVE can stem from one place.

I look forward to doing B-School again this year- to expand my learning and to simply be among the gorgeous flowing energy of these babes!

Congrats to all the winners- I am overjoyed for you and excited for your journey.

and thank you Marie, for giving so much of yourself to us-
may every round of B-School always exceed the next, it is most deserved.

with grace,

Vana

Congratulations to all the winners! Even though I did not win the scholarship, I discovered an unexpected tax refund that almost paid the whole tuition-the universe knows what its doing. But even more exciting than that is I have been looking for a few charities that I can put in my ‘business visioning’ as ones that I will donate to when my on line business takes off through B School. Prue Barber’s BARC is perfect and is a good companion to Soi Dog in Thailand that I sponsor. Since BARC is a ‘just starting’ charity, I’ll spread the word among my mailing list and have already made a donation to help them build their adoption centre and will keep an eye on opportunities to help when and how I can. This made me think that these videos may inspire other B School students to add some of the charities here to their ‘giving back’ plans. Looking forward to B School and getting to know all the wonderful people in the B School community!

Hi Marie and all B-School Winners Scholars,

Congratulations to all the winners! I know this B-School will really help your business out way beyond you will be expected. I am about to enroll also but it’s okay, I will apply next year.

Marie, thank you so much for giving us inspiration from all your videos, they are really helpful. I am from the Philippines, and online business here is quite new and fresh. Through your videos (Q&A Tuesday- i love it) I am inspired to work on with my passion- which is inspiring women to know and love their self. I’m so happy seeing all the scholarship winners. Thank you Marie and all your staff for a life changing you are all doing. You have a big heart. Godbless you!

More Power to B-School!

I cry at videos of animals and any airline and telephone adverts showing families reconnecting. Don’t need to tell you how I reacted to these stirring clips. Really excited to know that these souls are connecting to our new B-school family and that they will get the chance to share their gifts and ideas with the world when they might otherwise not get that chance. See how powerful your work is Marie and how you change the quality of people’s lives with your work? You’re a gem and thanks for giving these guys the chance to be gems-in-progress. Love you all B-school sisters! xxx

Congratulations to EVERYONE who both won a scholarship and just got up the courage to submit a video! I am so encouraged by seeing all the amazing things that people are doing all around the world to make people’s lives better!

Also, Marie, PLEASE make a correction. In video #15, of Rodrigo Flamenco, he does NOT represent South American men since he does NOT live in South America. He lives in El Salvador, in CENTRAL America, a region of the world that is too often forgotten about, overlooked or dismissed. I live here as well (in Nicaragua) and I am SO proud that Rodrigo is representing for CENTRAL America!!! ¡Suerte hombre con todo! Tal vez te puedo buscar para cuando diseñe mi página web!

Congratulations to the 31 winners and I would like to congratulate Marie on designing this competition. I entered the competition and whilst I wasn’t a formal winner, creating the video was an awesome experience. It certainly challenged me to go way out of my comfort zone but more importantly it gave me a clarity about my business that had been lacking. This insight alone made me a winner and I am extremely grateful. To everyone else who entered the competition I would like to say congratulations because you are a winner just for entering the competition. It defines you as a person of courage and commitment. Big group cosmic hug to you all.

Dear Marie,
thanks for posting all the videos, it is great to see the energy of women out there all over the world.

NOW here is what I am thinking.
Listening to Leanne Richards-Williams video I would like to contribute a resource for her and all other women who want to learn tech skills.

There is a Corporate Social Responsibility Program that is doing exactly that and can be the door for getting the Tech Education needed to change people’s life. The program runs in more than 165 countries, so cooperating with you on this could make an impact that I can not even imagine …

What I find really special about such a cooperation with you is that with we could do this on a personal level. This is what I like to do beside my job – coach people on a very individual level to understand the potential they have and motivate them to go for their happiness.

I am on your mailing list – lets work on this!

Thanks

How inspiring – I loved watching all of these videos. They made me smile, laugh, get a little teary – the whole range.

I’ve been following Marie for a little while now and am going through some shifts in my own life – making the transition, reinventing…you all know the drill. But…I know I’m not ready yet – So, Marie – make sure you run B-School next year, cuz I’m a gonna be there!!!!!!

Congratulations to all of the winners!

Thanks for this fabulous idea of posting the winners. I saw you chose someone who represented me – exactly where I am now. And has been the perfect reason for me to decide to join your B-SHOOL, which I thought it was not a place for me…yet. Well, I am ready!

Thank you Marie and team!!!!! I am so grateful and honoured to be among this amazing group of people. Your generosity in awarding 31(!!) scholarships is so inspiring.

Congrats to all the winners and to everyone who put themselves out there by making a video. I know firsthand how scary that was for some of us.

Just grinning from ear to ear here.

Huge love and gratitude

Today I enrolled to B-school (yay! love it!), updated my profile in the members’ area, my password, card holder details, avatar and requested to join the FB group.

All of a sudden I can’t log in anymore… Please HELP!!!!!

I tried clearing the cache/history/cookies, restarted my PC. Nothing worked. I suspect my profile is trapped in a loop? I did open the pages in several tabs and (guilty as charged) updated my profile way too often. Probably all my excitement caused this issue?!

Even though I emailed the tech-help bschool address, I thought to mention it here as I know beautiful Marie or someone in the “rescue” Team Forleo will probably read this.

I am so incredibly excited to be part of B-School and would love to get started with the Follow Through Formula bonus training over the weekend. If there’s anything that can be done before Monday, I’d be eternally grateful!

Thank you very much in advance! Please feel free to delete my comment (I am mortified to raise a tech issue here).

Love,
Alejandra

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I am soooo incredibly impressed with how quickly the “rescue” Team Forleo responded re my tech issue (which was actually a typo on my part). Louise, you are a super star!

Wow awesome scholarship vids…

I didn’t get through to the scholarship… I can see why after these vids! They re amazing and much more clearer and clever than my vid was.

I am studying Fire starter Sessions to get really clear about my desires…I think that’s what was missing from my scholarship vid.

Now the big news! I was willing to beg… Borrow or (definitely not steal) to get into bschool! I ended up borrowing… Something I never do!

Every fibre of my being knows bschool is right for me and my businesses. I put in 1000s of hours on my businesses. I don’t have time to muck around trying out different techniques ( I have 3 kids and a baby). I need a solid plan to follow, I’m sick of wasting precious hours trying to figure out what I’m doing wrong with my marketing, website, list building and snail pace progress of my list…

See you in BSCHOOL signing up next week when the money comes through.

Love from Jana & Mason (my baby who was in my scholarship vid!)

Wow. I am still in shock at receiving this totally unexpected gift. Thank-you so much Marie, and all the team, for enabling me to participate in this life and business-changing programme. I am truly excited by the passion and dedication of my fellow scholarship winners, and humbled to be part of such an inspiring group. I can’t wait to get started and connect with the whole B-School community.
Please also allow me a huge shout-out to my dear friend and uber-talented designer, printmaker and typographer, Nicole. We applied together and when my computer died a day before submissions were due she gave up her desk, her computer, and many hours of her precious time to enable me to redo my video and make the deadline. Although she missed out on a scholarship she has enrolled in B-School and I’m thrilled to be sharing this experience with her. This one’s for you Nic!
