I have already started my ‘side hustle’ business. Is this bootcamp for me?
If you have a validated business model, sustainable revenue and business process & systems in place, then no, it is not for you. However, if you are struggling to find a sustainable model and you are willing to adjust your strategy, then yes, you will find value in this bootcamp. We recommend that you contact us to discuss your situation before signing up if you are very unsure.

Can I use the workbook to start another Business?
Yes, if you complete the Bootcamp, you are welcome to use the materials to start as many businesses as you like. However, you are not allowed to share the materials with other people who have not paid to participate in the Bootcamp.

What happens if I miss a session?
Unfortunately, if you miss a session you will miss out on the conversation that takes place. You will still have access to the workbook information and the presentation slides. You will be able to ask questions and join the discussion in the Closed Facebook Group to get support on what you missed. There will not be ‘make-up’ sessions offered. If you know in advance that you are not going to be able to make a session in person, there may be an opportunity for you to join virtually, however sufficient notice will be required to allow for the technology to be set up prior to the start of the session.

Are meals included in the cost?
Meals are NOT provided during the workshop, however you are welcome to bring your own food for consumption during or prior to the workshop. Basic kitchen facilities are available onsite (microwave & refrigerator).
