The Five Stages of Success are five specific stages you can focus on at your own pace. It’s a great metric to track your progress as you launch and grow your business.
This is a cycle, not a one-and-done process. Because your business will likely change and evolve often, each stage can be repeated multiple times as you start new projects or initiatives.
No one knows your business better than you do. That’s why we wanted to give you the power to choose what area to focus on. Finally, we’ll get together every month for a live coaching session to answer your questions and celebrate your wins!
Fear kills more dreams than failure ever will. It’s cliché because it’s true. Stop letting fear hold you back. As an Academy member, you’ll gain the confidence you need to move full speed ahead.
There are people who need what you have to offer, and you don’t need a business degree to serve them. Stop wondering if you’re doing things the right way. Whether you’re learning how to run a business or you’ve been doing this for years, the Academy helps you build your confidence so you're prepared to handle every new stage or setback, every curve ball or crazy customer!
Running a business can get lonely. That’s why the Business Boutique Academy is more than a community. It really is a family you can trust and lean on for support so you never feel alone.
Your membership includes access to our exclusive Academy member Facebook group where you can connect with your fellow Academy members.
Accountability and support are critical to making progress in business. That’s what we love about connecting you all to each other. You’ve got an army of women who have great advice, tips and solutions, and who want to help you win!

frequently asked questions
Is the Academy for my stage of business?
Yes! The Academy was designed to train and encourage business owners at every stage of business. Our Five Stages of Success give you the flexibility to start learning no matter what stage you’re in.
The five stages are:
- Planning: creating a plan for your business
- Goal Setting: defining and refining the goals you want to accomplish
- Research: testing, experimenting and trying different things to discover what works and what doesn’t
- Action: maximizing your efforts through marketing and sales
- Scaling: exploring expansion for your business
Is the Academy right for me if I have a nonprofit?
Even nonprofits need to bring in revenue to stay in business. All of the training in the Academy is applicable to nonprofits. There are even two lessons in the Academy specifically on the legal and practical essentials to running a nonprofit. And you’re not alone! There are several other members in the Academy who are running nonprofits.
