How is The Academy different to other coaching programs?

Over the last 5 years, Anna & Flori have started and grown 4 successful businesses and coached upwards of 1,000 clients, generating millions of $$ of revenue.

What’s more to date they’ve reinvested over 100k+ into ongoing professional development for themselves and their team.

They have walked the walk and now want to teach you everything that they’ve learnt along the journey, so that you don't have to waste the time and money trying to figure this all out on your own.

And here are just a few more key reasons why this Program is better than any other business course out there for you:

  1. It's a bespoke learning experience exclusively tailored to your business. This is not an off the shelf offering, alongside our team we work with you daily on your specific business;
  2. It's personal – we get to know each and every student. We connect in person, on live calls, meet ups and more;
  3. Your mindset. Our aim is to prime your mindset for confidence, self-belief and results so that you 110% believe that you can, you will and that you've got this! Which is why we have dedicated life coaches here to support you as you traverse our program;
  4. This is a Program exclusively designed for women in business - so if that's you, get ready to be profoundly understood.

You can also checkout our success stories to learn more about why our students have chosen us for their business.

 
When was the program last updated?

The core content is regularly updated (a minimum 1-2 times a year) given the ever-changing landscape of business and world of marketing. Alongside this we are always adding new content and trainings each month.

 
How many hours a week do I need to put aside to complete the program?

We know that your time is scarce and that you’re juggling A LOT - which is why this whole Program has been designed with this in mind - to make every minute count.

Each module is broken down into small manageable steps with a time stamp for each stage so you know how much time to allocate and are continuously doing & achieving.

As a rule of thumb, with Phase 1 {build} we estimate you'll need to set aside anywhere from 4-5 hours per week as your work through your business foundations.

From there, we recommend anywhere from 4+ hours a week to work through Phases 2 & 3 {plan & execute} as you plan and implement our more advanced marketing strategies.

 
What happens if I fall behind?

That’s where our dedicated support team comes into play! If you ever feel lost or behind just reach out and let us know and we’ll work with you on a plan of attack to get back on track and make sure you stick to it. BUT there’s a good chance we’ll have stalked you and already been in touch before you get to this point!

 

 

 

Who is the Academy for?

Who’s right for The Elevatory Academy?

At The Elevatory we work with female entrepreneurs who want to take their life and business to the next level.

If you’re a woman in business and this sounds like you and you’re ready for results, then you’re the perfect fit.

With respect to your stage of business – at The Academy we work with women across the following stages:

  • Start-up – you’ve recently launched your small business;
  • Growth – you’ve been in business a little while but you’re ready to grow and you want to improve your results;

However, if you’re already kicking BIG goals in your business and really looking to scale – then we recommend you check out The Elevatory Mastermind as your next step. In our Mastermind you’ll work exclusively with Anna & Flori to to break through that 6-figure ceiling and do some serious scaling.

Is The Academy an accredited program?

No, The Academy is not a university-accredited Program. However, we can assure you that you’ll receive more practical, actionable and hands on learnings than attending any University Business Course out there.

Not to mention better value! Check out our content investment calculator here.

And here’s what some of our students have shared about this Program who have University-based Business Training…

“I completed my Bachelor of Business with a HR major, worked my way up to exec level and felt like I had a great handle on all facets of running a business. Ha! I struggled to even write a business plan for my small business, because what I had learnt at University was around medium to large businesses.

Anna & Flori literally covered everything I studied at University but was so much more practical and gave me a platform to run ideas/ plans/ numbers past a supportive and resourceful community plus expert business coaches for constant feedback.

What I have learnt here has been raw business. I've had many small failings, as every business does, and if I wasn't for Anna & Flori, I would’ve closed my virtual doors a year ago, because I wouldn’t have been able to make the business work in the way I had been taught to at University.”

– BIANCA RITCHIE

 

“This Program is a lot more hands on and practical than what I did at University not to mention, my CPA course after that. Through both University and my CPA work, I mainly got taught a lot of theory without really having to do much in the way of practical, real life work.

And then of course at the end, there were huge exams that supposedly gave an indication as to how well you understood the learning material covered.

This Program has been much more marketing, target market, sales, business-building focused whereas the University degree didn’t really focus at all on running a business in a practical sense.”

- MICHELLE GAVIN-DOOREY

 
Will I be held accountable?

Absolutely! We actually have a three-step system in place to help you stay on track and committed to your investment.

Not only will you receive regular updates and reminders from us via email to help you stay on the right path, but we also have our support team to check in and chase you if we haven’t heard from you in a little while (#cantescapeus).

Alongside this we use our time together in the Private Coaching Forum to really help you focus on your high pay-off activities, hold you accountable and ensure that you get results.

 
What do I do if I have a question that is not listed here?

Please contact us here. We would be absolutely delighted to hear from you!
