Billie Gardner is the founder of Desire to Done and Introvert VA Club. She helps creative introverts become virtual assistants.


In 2012 I had a jewelry & accessories business. I sold my goods on Etsy, in a couple of local shops, and at a super cool indy market during Christmas. 

I remember a friend asking me one day how my jewelry business was going and me saying, “It’s going well. I don’t make enough to quit my job, but it’s going well.”

That night while lying in bed, I wondered, “Why not? Why not make enough money to quit my job?” That’s when I decided that I was going to do it. I was going to learn how to market and grow my business so that I could do it full-time.

Soon after, I learned about Marie Forleo’s program called B-School. After watching the promo videos, I instantly knew that it was what I needed to take my business to the next level. So I signed up and took the first step toward my big dream. I knew in my heart and soul that I had made the right decision.

I went through all the lessons, filled in all the worksheets, and implemented everything I learned. As a result, I saw more sales and gained more confidence in my marketing abilities.

But then…I realized that I didn’t want to grow my jewelry business after all. 😳  I didn’t want to sit at my desk and string beads for the rest of my life. What I liked doing was tech stuff.

By applying what I learned in B-School, I ended up falling in love with marketing and online tools! 

So I followed my newfound passion and started helping other online businesses with their websites, blog posts, and email marketing. And I ended up pivoting to become a Virtual Assistant. 

I LOVED helping other entrepreneurs and talking about businessy stuff. I also loved being behind the scenes and working with my clients. 

👉  I also learned something else…

B-Schoolers like to hire other B-Schoolers.

Because of the high calibration of training, they want to hire people who’ve gone through the program. I ended up working with several B-Schoolers just because I was a B-Schooler myself. (Why am I telling you this? Because if you’re thinking about starting or growing your VA biz, B-School can be an EXCELLENT resource!)

It’s a 6-week video-based program run by online business expert Marie Forleo. It includes worksheets, templates, swipe files, coaching, and bonus trainings. Plus, you get lifetime access!

Thousands of men and women have gone through the B-School program. Here’s a tiny sample of the outstanding feedback it has received.

“Marie’s B-School is not just about making money (although that’s necessary to business, and part of it). It’s about how to live and work in a way that gives you more control. It helps you make healthy, intelligent decisions about sales and marketing.”

Who’s right for B-School?

B-School is for virtual assistants, creatives, freelancers, small business owners, and established and aspiring entrepreneurs.

If you:

  • Identify as a “self-starter.”
  • Want a distraction-free environment that prioritizes action and results.
  • Are an independent learner who doesn’t need a lot of handholding to get things done.
  • Trust yourself to experiment and learn by doing.
  • Believe that focus, discipline, and hard work are the keys to business success.

Then B-School is right for you.

Who’s not right for the program?

B-School is not a good choice for you if you want a get-rich-quick scheme. The program is all about putting in the time and effort to see results. It’s also not about what makes the most money; it’s about following your passion and creating a sustainable business you love.

How long do I have access to B-School?

Forever. You can refer to the lessons whenever you need a refresher. Plus, the program is updated regularly.

Is there a FB group or forum?

No, there isn’t an official FB group or forum, but there are lots of FB groups run by members, including at least one specifically for B-Schoolers who are looking to hire B-School VAs.

Is there a payment plan?

Yes, you can either pay in full or make 12 monthly payments.

Is there a refund policy?

I don’t think you’ll be disappointed, but if you try B-School and you’re not impressed, you can request a refund by 8/15/21. You’ll need to submit completed coursework along with your request. The reason being, if you do the work, you’re more likely to get something out of it than if you sort of watch the videos, don’t do the worksheets, and don’t implement anything.

Keep in mind, if you request a refund for B-School, you’ll no longer have access to my bonuses, including coaching, 1-year subscription to the Introvert VA Club, and the Do MORE with Less Energy Workshop.

Do I have access to all the trainings in B-School right away?

No, the lessons will be released on a weekly basis. B-School covers a lot of material – I was thankful that I had access to the lessons gradually rather than all at once. I found that it kept me focused.

Do I have access to the B-School bonuses right away?

You’ll have access to Start the Right Business and The Follow-Through Formula as soon as you join. The rest of the bonuses will be released throughout September.

What makes B-School different from other courses out there?

B-School has been around for 12 years and has had over 66,000 students in 650+ different industries worldwide. Instead of swamping you with heady business theories, B-School gives you a proven step-by-step roadmap to growing your profitable, purposeful business online.

How can I get the most out of B-School?

You’ll want to mark your calendar for the live round Aug 2 – Sept 10, 2021, and schedule in as much time as possible to watch and implement the weekly lessons. Of course, there’s no such thing as behind, however. You can go at your own pace.

If you sign up through my special affiliate link, you’ll receive 2-months of coaching with me which will coincide with the live round of B-School (August and September).  But, you’ll also have access to the Introvert VA Club for a year*, where you can ask additional questions and get support.

*You can choose either a 1-year membership or two 2-hour coaching sessions.

When does B-School start?

Class officially starts Monday, Aug 2, 2021.

When does the live round end?

B-School graduation is on Friday, Sept 10, 2021.

I’m not a VA, and I don’t plan on becoming one. Can I still sign up through your link?

Yes, of course! I’ve been through B-School therefore I’m familiar with the principles and can help you no matter what type of business you have.

Is B-School really worth it?

Yes. I know it’s an investment, but it’s an investment that really pays off. I wouldn’t be an affiliate for it if I didn’t think it was worth it. I believe in this program, and I want to help as many people as possible live their best life. There is a refund policy, so if you’re not happy with the program, you can request your money back.

I’m not sure if I can join B-School right now. When will it be offered again?

B-School is open to new students only 1-2 times a year. If you’re on the fence, I say join now!

I have questions not answered here. Can you help?

Yes, I’d love to. Reach out to me here, and we’ll chat!

B-School was nothing but a positive experience for me.

I learned timeless business and marketing strategies that I continue to use over and over in my business. Plus, it was fun, and I’ve met and become friends with some amazing people!

If you’re ready to uplevel your business and start living your best life, come join me!
