This is what you get access to as a member of Business Heroes® Academy.
Here you can see what is included in the membership that will help you go through the Entrepreneur's Journey.
You are invited to our weekly meetings that we hold via Zoom. You evaluate the previous week and plan the new week.
It's a great opportunity to ask questions, get feedback, and ideas on how to make your plan a reality. Often, it's about helping you reach milestones and taking action to move you to the next step in the Entrepreneur's Journey.
Usually Mondays at:
4PM - 5PM CEST, 3PM - 4PM BST, 10AM - 11AM EST, 7AM - 8AM PDT.
You are invited twice a month to the online meetings that we hold via Zoom.
Each meeting focuses on a theme within business development, digitalization, personal development, marketing, sales, or leadership. In addition, there are opportunities to ask for advice, tips, or suggestions wherever you are on the Entrepreneur's Journey.
The group meeting serves as your personal sounding board, mastermind, or peer group. If you cannot participate live or want to watch the replay, you will have access to the recordings (we save the meetings for approx. 30 days).
Usually Tuesdays at:
4PM - 5PM CEST, 3PM - 4PM BST, 10AM - 11AM EST, 7AM - 8AM PDT.
You get access to our closed Facebook group where you can ask questions, get feedback, and discuss with mentors and other members.
Sometimes it's about getting new eyes on something you've created. Sometimes it can be to get encouragement when you feel a bit low and drained of energy. Sometimes it can be about celebrating that you dared to raise your prices and got the booking!
Being an entrepreneur can feel lonely and having access to a group where you can come in and get support and help is invaluable.
You will have access to online courses that will guide you through the Entrepreneur's Journey. You can take part in them at your own pace.
In the membership area, you will also find workbooks, manuals, templates, examples, and calculators that will help you implement what you learn in the online courses.
The online courses aim to help you focus on reaching the milestones in the Entrepreneur's Journey and simplify the process of getting the right things done and implemented in your business.
Meet your mentor: Sarah Watz
I run the Business Heroes® Academy. In this entrepreneurial school, I and other experts educate entrepreneurs who sell services on how to get more customers, increase profitability, and have more time.
With 25+ years of experience running a business, I have a broad and deep understanding of entrepreneurship. Through my own business and the clients I have helped, I have both good and bad experiences of what works and what doesn't work today. I constantly stay up to date on international trends in entrepreneurship, marketing, digitalization, and automation that also come to our market here in Sweden.
I lecture and educate entrepreneurs both in Sweden and internationally and have had the privilege of helping 10,000+ entrepreneurs from around the world with business development and digital strategies over the years.
I grew up in an entrepreneurial family and have worked internationally my entire professional life. I lived in the United States twice. In 1995, I started working with vocational education for adults in marketing, advertising, PR & information, and IT. In 1996, I started my first business in the form of a sole proprietorship in parallel with my employment. At the end of 1999, I quit my job to focus on my own business full-time. Since then, I haven't looked back...
