What's the vibe on the inside?

This program is NOT a get-rich quick program, another theory course with little value, or a prescribed formula for success. It IS a program with deep value and top-notch curriculum, which provides you the opportunity to market your business from a strategic, joyful place (#JoyfulMarketing) and grow your client base, audience, and income in a natural, organic, and sustainable way. It’s about mindset shifts, feel-good marketing strategy, and a community who is here for you and will support your growth and cheer you on every step of the way. If you are looking for get-rich-quick results and more “prescribed plans and formulas”, this is NOT the program for you.

All kinds! We have many different types of coaches and consultants here: leadership, health and wellness, business, marketing, productivity, writing, creativity/art, marriage/relationship, life, and financial…just to name a few.

How long is the program?

This program is 12 months long. You will learn, implement, build powerful relationships, and grow the coaching and consulting business you have been dreaming of. Let’s do this!

How is this program different from other marketing and business development programs?

The Confident Expert Program is a one-of-a-kind, hands-on, results-driven program. It combines the power of on demand modules that help you start signing more clients NOW, as well as a mastermind, community, and implementation support. Our number one priority is to help you start marketing from a place of joy and making sales. You have a 1:1 accountability coach, as well as the brilliance of the collective. We are here to help you every step of the way–and this tight-knit community has your back. We focus on #JoyfulMarketing here, so that means no more slimy, sleazy sales tactics or hyped-up, bro marketing that rarely works. While most programs focus on marketing, or sales, this program blends both together. You know why? Marketing and sales go together! They are the lifeline of your healthy, joyful, sustainable business.

How much time do I need to commit to the program?

We recommend you allot up to 2 hours each week to attend events (like trainings and clinics) and work on the curriculum. You’ll also want to allot 1 hour per week to implement what you are learning. Of course, this program is built in a way that you only need to attend and spend time on the things that will support YOUR current marketing and selling goals.

Who is teaching the program content?

M. Shannon Hernandez leads a variety of the events, and other monthly events are led by Amy Hager, your 1:1 program coach. We can’t wait to work with you in a blended group/1:1 setting that is helping our students achieve impressive results.

Can I hear from students who are in the program/have completed the program?

Yes you can! We have a full roster of Case Studies and Testimonials, both in video and written format, on the Happy Students page. Feel free to listen in and get to know us!

Can I talk to someone to make sure this program is a great fit for me?

You bet you can! We value integrity and helping coaches and consultants make great choices. This means we work with you to determine the next best step for where you are right now. During your strategy call, we will help you determine what you need next to grow your business.

What is the tuition?

The tuition for this program is $1150 per month for 12 months.

Is there a money-back guarantee?

No. Our program isn’t like other programs or trainings you have taken. You are here because you want a joyful approach to marketing and selling. You want a community, a group vibe, and 1:1 support. Your results are drastically affected by your commitment and willingness to play full out, go all in, be coachable, and remain consistent. We only want coaches and consultants who are 100% committed to staying the course and achieving their goals. We are community who believes that #TogetherWeRise. We are here to help you succeed–if you do the work.

What do you mean marketing can be joyful and fun?!?

Haha. Yup, welcome to the Joyful Marketing hangout. If it ain’t fun, we ain’t doin’ that shit!
