An online business?
It’s my Dream!
Where in the world do I start?
Perhaps you started dreaming about the freedom you’d have with an online business and promised yourself that this was the year. You’ve imagined what it would be like to have your teachings and trainings organized and delivered to satisfied clients all over the globe.
And, of course, you’d love some extra revenue flowing into your business.
Maybe you’ve even mentioned your dream to a few friends and family members, designed a gorgeous logo, created a basic website, and imagined how it would feel to sit back and watch the sales come in.
Here’s why most would-be ONLINE entrepreneurs abandon their digital dream:
Beyond a logo and a website, the next steps just aren’t that clear. How exactly do you bring your content online and how do you spread the word? These fears cause so many budding entrepreneurs to put their businesses on hold (sometimes forever).
Does any of this sound familiar?
You are already busy with teaching and coaching current clients and trying to keep your existing business afloat. In addition, you’re making school lunches, shuttling your kiddos around, trying to be attentive to your partner, nurturing your friendships, doing your best to cook and prepare healthy meals, folding (what can only be described as mountains of) laundry, and attempting to take care of yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually. That’s a lot.
And your dreams always seem to be second to what someone else needs in the moment.
Or maybe you suffer from a deep and paralyzing overwhelm. You have big goals for your business, but you just do not have a clue about what the next actionable step should be.
When you’re stuck, you don’t know where to turn short of spending serious money on hiring an expensive (and somewhat intimidating) tech guru. The dream gets put on hold. But the exciting news is that getting back on track and honoring yourself and your dreams is very, very do-able.
Want to know something really exciting?
If you’re reading this page, you’re ahead of the curve. Our culture is moving more and more towards connectivity online and just about every business will be expected to serve clients on demand. But as long as you can avoid the common mistakes that stop most would-be online entrepreneurs, the dream is there to achieve. Bigger audience, more impact, and a new revenue stream. It’s all possible. The path to your dream is rooted in community. Here’s your invitation into that community.
“I’m so excited to be able to expand my offerings to other platforms, while at the same time feeling more empowered and self-reliant with my own business and teachings. I know it wouldn’t be possible without the support of Team Namastream and the Soulful MBA.”
Jenny Finkel | Yoga Teacher
Why Did We Make This?
We’ve taken everything we’ve learned from creating and scaling two software companies, consulting and strategizing with hundreds of yoga teachers and studios (from celebrities to brand new teachers), founding nonprofits and selling businesses, juggling motherhood, our own yoga practices and teacher trainings, and channelled it into the Soulful MBA.
The biggest lesson we’ve learned, after hundreds of thousands of dollars spent of education, is the importance of community and social accountability. Community is built into our human DNA and it is an essential component when we are working outside of our comfort zone (hmmm… perhaps like taking your business online?).
A strong community of like-minded peers offers resources and opportunities for celebration, connection, collaboration, inspiration, and sometimes even some I-need-someone-who-understands-what-I’m-trying-to-do emotional support.
We wanted to build something more adaptive, and with deeper roots. We wanted to create an evolving, living, growing community — a tight, supportive tribe. A movement.
Soulful MBA is a how-to course with a collection of over 85 simple but powerful video trainings combined with an open, warm, and business-savvy crew to help you evolve from a teacher/trainer/coach to a full-fledged entrepreneur.
The first business training program built with you in mind...
With our soulful community
We believe that you are going to accomplish more and get there faster if you have the right people around you. We are collecting them for you (you’re welcome!). We attract kind, authentic, driven changemaking entrepreneurs who want to make an impact in this world — who want to build something because they believe they can make a difference in people’s lives. They’re healers — just like you. We don’t build businesses just to make money, and neither do our clients. We come to this project after decades of work in public service, including working alongside multiple Nobel Peace Prize winners. We’re the real deal. Money is a powerful form of energy exchange, but that’s really all that it is. A tool.
with real live mentors
In addition to amazing community members, we’ve loaded the MBA with some rock-star wellness entrepreneurs who have found their groove in the online world. They have experience with email list building, social media, content creation, videography, and much, much more. But the most important part? They are inside the membership available to you. Some are permanent; others will be rotating through. Their job is to help you get unstuck and moving forward. Isn’t it comforting to have someone to turn to?
with easy-to-follow trainings
Our goal is not to overload you with endless hours of training filled with unnecessary content and extraneous strategies that make us look brainy, but only serve to overwhelm you. We’ve designed the trainings with you in mind. They are quick, clear, and full of information that you can implement right away (in bite-sized pieces) to build your dream business.
with language you understand
There is no point using sales funnels, integration, churn, and conversion talk if our actual clients (ahem…you) won’t understand any of it, right? Within the MBA, we choose to engage with simple and clear language and save the geeky startup jargon for the rest of the Internet. We’d rather use words like authenticity, joy, positivity, flow, and maybe a few Congratulations, on that sale! or OMG you did it! tossed in for good measure.
with a road map
Navigating the online business world is in a word – confusing! Should you start filming a lesson, post more frequent on social media or buy Facebook ads? Follow our syllabus and you’ll always know exactly what you should be focusing on.
with tech made easy
You know you’ll have to dive into technology a little bit, right? It is an online business, after all. But we take the complex things and break them down into clear, actionable steps. And if you still don’t get it, you know what? It’s a community so someone is always there to help clear things up. Here’s the thing… Technology is a major currency of power in our society. If you choose to harness some of that power, amazing things will start to happen. This is the future. Now. You’re in it. We’ll show you how we’ve been able to use technology to accomplish goals that we didn’t even dare to dream just a few short years ago. Surrounded by people that think like you, talk like you, and are ready and willing to keep you accountable to your goals, what could you dare to accomplish?
Here’s Your Soulful Roadmap:
Soulful MBA is much more than a “how-to” program
It’s an implementation program so you actually have a launched,“bringing-in-money” teaching business.
How does it work? Well, we’ve broken up the training into 6 different phases. You’ll receive a syllabus for each phase, which clearly outlines what lessons to complete, where (and what) to post on social media, who to follow for inspiration and motivation, what to read and, most importantly, what your next step is in your business.
Phase 1 - Build Your Foundation
Create a rock solid business foundation by discovering your core values and ensuring your new entrepreneur endeavours won’t compromise your character or ideals. Learn who you are best meant to serve by identifying your quintessential client and, using our unique technique, discover what she really needs from you in your new online role. We’ll also train you in our 6 powerful mindset lessons, giving you an edge in business (and life). This often overlooked ground work will set you up for long term success.
Phase 2 - Develop Your Voice
Discover how to speak and write confidently in your true, authentic voice and reach the people who need you most. Our copywriting and email list building lessons will have you scaling your online presence on various social channels and planning your compelling email marketing campaigns (and feeling pretty awesome because it’s so easy to write as yourself). You’ll quickly find a rhythm to consistently posting original and meaningful content.
Phase 3 - Create Your Offering
Examine and select your ideal revenue model and start crafting your offering. Our Namastream Film School is your crash course on all-things videography and makes recording your teaching a breeze.
Phase 4 - Excite Your Audience
Build excitement about your offering by telling the world what’s about to arrive. Use our nurturing email sequence to get your students excited and ready to purchase. Learn how to connect with key influencers and continue to build your list (and excitement). If you do this step right, there’s a good chance you might end up with a wait-list for your offering before it’s officially launched (and maybe a few early sales… yes, that’ possible).
Phase 5 - Launch Your Offering
It’s launch time! You are ready to release your creation into the world and the most exciting part is your students are primed and eager to click your ‘Buy’ button. Celebrate each sale but don’t lose focus and momentum now. We’ll show you how to work closely with your first group of students to perfect your offering and marketing system.
Phase 6 - Fine Tuning
You’ve created something amazing and now it’s time to fine tune the process and begin to scale.You’ll reflect on what you learned, refine areas that could have gone better and replicate what went well. You’ll also learn about paid advertising on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest so you can grow your business into whatever you’d like.
“Your program was the catalyst for a variety of things for me. First, it gave me a ton of ideas for posting on my Instagram and Facebook business pages. Then, using the graphic design tools you suggested, I overhauled my website. And lastly, with my newfound confidence, I created some promotional materials and I have never promoted myself like that before! Being a part of this course knocked the intimidation factor down for me and I have now created an actual online course that has been my goal for years. Thank you for the nudge to continue doing things I was afraid of doing.”
Anne Talhelm | photographer & yoga teacher

“It is such a joy to work with Jeni and Sandy. They operate from a place of high integrity. Their focus is to create a place of community and support and see others grow. While working with them, they’ve encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and promote my brand in ways I’d not been willing to prior, which has resulted in me doing more of it, with more exposure for my work. They also shared tools and insights that made it easy and fun. I love what they’ve created and am so happy to be a part of it!”
