Because women CEOs rely on each other for learning, accountability, encouragement, and support.
So much more than an actual “school”
CEO School for Women™ is a business growth, peer-mentoring, and coaching program for women entrepreneurs and business owners like you, who are committed to building your company, working ON your business, and eager to navigate it to the next level.
CEO School is designed to stimulate the growth and success of your business.
You get practical tools, learn skills through online course offerings, and meet regularly with experts and peers for instruction, sharing, accountability, and support. And FUN! Business can and should be FUN!
Whether you are focused on building your business and need some “incubating,” or scaling it to build value for an exit on your own terms and are accelerating into success, we have a program for you.
Yikes! Where Do I Start?
Sound like you?
- My business has survived startup but I can’t seem to get traction to make it “over the hump.”
- There is so much to do, I can’t seem to make any headway. Everything feels like a priority!
- I feel lonely, and uncertain if I’m on the right track.
- I’m feeling “stuck.”
- I learn best in a group, and from “doing,” rather than just reading.
- I could really use some encouragement, guidance, skills, accountability, and structure.

Developed by Women for Women
Structure, experience, practicality, and support are the underlying principles.
FUN is another key principle. We can all use a little more fun in our lives, and who better than our sisters to understand, and to laugh and play with!
And we like WINE. 🍷 It’s an important lubricant for our hard work.
Led by a veteran business advisor and facilitator of Executive Roundtables, plus an exceptional faculty of experts, each class provides lessons you can apply to your business today, and that will serve you over the long haul as your business grows.
Accessible 24/7 to Fit Your Life
We’re becoming virtual and asynchronous in 2017 to accommodate your schedule! Our practical curriculum is served online so you can dip in when your schedule allows.
And our conference calls and virtual MasterMind Circles are held at the same time each month so you can anticipate them in your calendar. Because life happens, those are recorded in case you must miss one, and placed in your customized secured online portal.
Rather than rival graduate business schools, our curriculum is PRACTICAL, based on actual entrepreneurial experiences.
CEO School™ is designed for busy women like you, who want to implement and benefit from their new learnings immediately.
Unlike a lot of programs out there, we focus on teaching you skills that last a lifetime and grow as your business grows.
