Business Made Simple University gives you the practical skills you need to build your confidence and grow your business. Communication Made Simple, Marketing Made Simple and Proposals Made Simple, are just a few of the topics covered that are essential knowledge for business owners. They’ve taught me a great deal and I want to share how i use their tools!
Its business school made by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs. Here’s some insight into how they do things, their recommendations and some of mine!
Business Made Simple University. This is StoryrBand’s, online course platform to teach you everything you need to start and run a business. My name’s Ryan Toth, I’m the CEO of clear brand. I’m a StoryBrand certified guide. And in this video, I’m going to tell you how StoryBrand, and Business Made Simple want you to use Business Made Simple University and how I think you should use it. Instead. In fact, this is how I use it with my team.
Business Made Simple University. This is business school for the rest of us. At least that is how StoryBrand and business made simple are marketing this thing. I think that is incredible. School is not built for everybody, and it is especially not built for entrepreneurs. People who are high risk takers, people who like to move quickly do not want to sit in a classroom for hours and hours and take tests by people who generally have not created or run a business. I think business made simple university is onto something here, and I think it is absolutely worth checking out. Now, when you sign up, one of the things you’re going to notice is they actually want you to get accounts for your team as well. And this is where I think there’s a little bit of misalignment between Business Made Simple and typical businesses. Let me tell you what I mean, here’s some of the courses they’ve got in the platform.
StoryBrand Messaging Framework, Marketing Made Simple, Hero on a Mission. Proposals Made Simple, Negotiation Made Simple. Now these are all incredible courses and vital knowledge for entrepreneurs. However, they are not necessary for most members of an entrepreneur’s team. Think about Proposals Made Simple, while you watching this likely need to go watch Proposals Made Simple in order to ramp up your proposals and actually make them into sales machines. Does your assistant need to know that? Probably not. Negotiation Made Simple? Kind of in the same boat for me. Now, let me tell you how I use this with my team and how I use it for myself. First with my team. Whenever I hire somebody and add them to our team, I give them a Business Made Simple University login, and I tell them specifically which courses I want them to go through. So for example, anybody on our team who does marketing, I have them watch the StoryBrand Messaging Framework and Marketing Made Simple, depending on the type of marketing they’re doing, I might have them watch Communication Made Simple.
Now every single person on my team, I want them all going through Hero on a Mission, that teaches them how to create a life plan, which is going to give them a clear path for their life, which will motivate and inspire them, which means they show up better in all areas of their life, including at my company. I don’t want most people watching Proposals Made Simple. I’m at least not going to pay them to do that. Enneagram made simple. This is a tougher one because it’s going to teach people how to engage with folks who are a different personality than them. That could be incredibly valuable depending on the types of dynamics you’re seeing at your team. In fact, I’ve even heard of some companies creating little kind of like baseball card things for their employees and that little baseball card has like identifiers on it.
So name, where you’re from, what your Enneagram personality type is, maybe what your Kolby is, maybe what your strengths finder is. You can put a lot of stuff on there. And the Enneagram made simple course can help people engage with people of different personality types. I think everyone needs to know this information, especially somebody like a 2 – who is like the helper, they want to help people, they kinda air into like that people pleasing space, with an 8 – who’s the challenger who doesn’t want anybody to engage with them in a people pleasing way. Right? You can see how some of these dynamics are helpful with a course like that. But again, with my team, I tell each individual who I hire specifically, which courses I will pay them to watch and which courses I will not pay them to watch, but they can watch at home if they want.
Now for myself, it’s a little bit different. You see, my business coach just got certified through Business Made Simple University. She is now a BMSU certified coach. So here’s what she is doing and in my personal opinion, this is where I think entrepreneurs really have a chance to leverage Business Made Simple University to its fullest. When I’m working with my business coach, her name is Miriam Gunn. You can find her ayleavebetter.com, leave better.com. She’s all about leaving you better so that you leave the world around you, better, your family, your business, the environment, we’ve all got something that we could leave better. So here’s what she and I do. I can go through a course and she can coach me through that course, but also because I’m working with her as my coach, what I will identify a lot of the times as I’m going through a course is personal roadblocks.
Something that is getting in the way of me truly executing what that course teaches me with excellence. And this is where Miriam comes in. I will then go to her. She is certified with business, made simple. She knows these courses. She knows the information that I just went through in the course. And then I can talk through my roadblocks and internal obstacles. And she works with me to help me reach the next level. I think that is truly where entrepreneurs have the opportunity to really take their role to the next level, to really reach their potential and to live the life that they’re truly after. And I can tell you with certainty that Miriam has helped me do that again. Shameless plug leavebetter.com, check out Miriam. She will help you reach the next level.
All right. So let’s recap. I think business made simple university is in credible, but I don’t want my entire team watching every single video so I tell them which videos I will pay them to watch and which ones I will not pay them to watch. But for me, every course that has come out has been personally impactful and has helped me grow my business and even more so with a certified Business Made Simple Coach.
