Founder to CEO

Hi there, fellow self-funded founder!

We’re 98% of American business owners. Yet most of the advice out there assumes we’ve got equity investors and are just burn burn burning through that sweet moolah.

So what’s a self-funded founder to do? There’s a lot to learn in your journey from founder to CEO. It might feel like your idea is getting lost while you’re figuring out how to run a company. Or the flexibility you loved at the beginning is impossible to get back. 

Let’s re-ignite your excitement.

Let’s make it easier to find and focus on the things that actually make a difference, that drive sustainable growth.

I’ll help you move from founder to CEO.

A: This course is designed for self-funded women and femme-identifying business owners with ambitions to run a profitable business of at least $500,000 in revenue. Ideally, you’re 1–3 years into business and somewhere between $75,000 and $200,000 in revenue. But if you’re a bit further and you want to level up your CEO skills, let’s talk.

A: Each cohort will be capped at 15 business owners.

A: You’ll be invited to schedule a 15-minute Q&A call with Jill and complete your registration.

A: The design goal was for 80% of your success to be showing up. We’ll use breakouts, real-time exercises, guest expert AMAs, and work sprints in a 90-minute weekly meeting. Before and after the live sessions, we have optional worksheets, videos, and journaling exercises. But no shame spirals about what you’re not doing.

A: All live sessions will be recorded and hosted in our private MightyNetworks community group to view and come back to indefinitely. There will also be opportunities to discuss session content within your cohort, connect with your assigned accountability partner, and get your questions answered post-session.

A: Knowing more means you’ll have more questions. So we’ve added a permanent private community — NOT a gross Facebook group you can search on Google. At the end of the course period, you’ll also be added to the alumni community. Ongoing access to both groups are included in the course price.

A: Yes. You can access all session recordings, our video resource library, worksheets, etc., in our MightyNetworks community indefinitely. You will also have access to new videos and any additional iterations to course materials as they evolve.

A: You’ll have two 30-minute 1:1 sessions with Jill, recorded and transcribed. You set the agenda, it’s your private coaching.
