Many small business owners have a “sky’s the limit” attitude. And they’re not wrong. The beauty of running your own business is that you’re fully in control of your own success. The downside, however, is that the next step you need to take isn’t always clear.
If you’re struggling to find a proven path to grow your business, you’re not alone. Plenty of small business owners struggle with scaling. You work hard to start your business and make it successful, rejoicing when you start earning a profit! But where do you go from there?
Donald Miller’s latest small business course addresses exactly this question. Small Business Flight School is designed to help you outline and implement the steps you need to take to get from where you are to where you want to be using the basics of the StoryBrand Framework. It’s a six-month intensive training that gets your business off the ground and into the clouds.
How Does Flight School Work?
Unlike Miller’s Business Made Simple course, which allows you to grow your business at your own pace, Flight School is designed as a fast-paced program that gets you where you want to go in just six months.
Each month, the program focuses on a different aspect of your business:
- Overhead and Operations
- Cash Flow
Each weekly unit has a combination of videos and action items to help you learn about the core principles of running a successful business and develop an action plan for your own organization. The lessons and activities require about 5 hours each week.
In addition to the weekly lessons, you’ll also have access to Donald Miller himself, Business Made Simple team members and a community of other growth-minded entrepreneurs also enrolled in Flight School. It’s a built-in community that can help you answer questions, workshop ideas and point your plane in the right direction.
Why Do I Need Flight School?
Whether you’ve tried to grow your business before or it’s your first attempt, the simple benefit of Small Business Flight School is that it makes the process easy.
When you run a small business, you have to wear many different hats. You’re the CEO, CFO, client relationship manager, director of operations, salesperson and more. That’s a lot to focus on! With your mind tied up in so many different areas of your business, it can be difficult to see a clear picture of what’s holding you back and where your best avenues for growth are, much less take steps toward them.
On top of all your roles, there are also the three most common stressors that weigh down small business owners:
- Constantly worrying about cash flow
- Wasting time on business and marketing strategies that don’t work
- Feeling like the chaotic rollercoaster of your startup phase will never end
The Small Business Flight School helps you assess your business, establish clear goals and create a step-by-step plan for how to reach them. Through this action plan, not only will you see how you can more efficiently manage your time but also your money and marketing.
How Is Flight School Different?
At this point, you might be thinking Flight School is just another “master class” claiming to have all the answers but not actually delivering results. How is Small Business Flight School any different?
The foundational elements of Small Business Flight School are the same as those in his demonstrated successful course, Business Made Simple. His approach to marketing has skyrocketed thousands of businesses over the years. Flight School combines this proven approach with Miller’s first-hand knowledge about running successful companies — how to manage your money, how to work with staff, how to run your operations and how to work with clients.
Unlike some other small business classes, Flight School isn’t just, “How much money do you want to make? Okay, go sell more products.” It’s a deep dive into the fundamentals of how you run your business and communicate your value to align your operations and marketing with your vision of success.
