Our Mission

Our mission at Be A Beacon In Your Industry is to empower start up companies, micro businesses and solopreneurs to truly understand all of the aspects of running a business in a fun and supportive way. Our cohorts are run by leading coaching professionals to guide the cohort members into a solid business structure with ongoing sustainability.

Our ultimate goal is to increase the number of businesses that survive past the first 5 years by helping them understand how to effectively and efficiently run a successful business while taking the bullshit out of business.

About Us

We value our start-up, solopreneur and micro business community. This area of business is often ignored because their budget is very limited however they need the most help and guidance. There are a number of small business courses out there but they are missing the coaching factor and that is what we bring to the table. We wanted to ensure that proper care, time and support are top priorities so we have created a system that was going to bring proven results to start up, solopreneur and micro business owners.

We have put together a startup incubator program and 3 class levels each with 16 lessons in an ideal sequence to gain the highest results for business owners. These 16 lessons are spread out over 8 weeks to ensure that the business owner has time to be able to still run their business while making the necessary updates as they grow. With these lessons the cohort member will be on a weekly coaching call with the other members of their cohort. Each cohort has 20 members and 1 coach. The calls are 2 hours long through Zoom and are defined to be able to answer questions, offer support and guidance, brainstorm and coach the cohort members with plenty of room for celebrations! You will also gain access to your cohorts exclusive Facebook group for ongoing support throughout your journey.

Once you have completed your 8 week cohort you will be invited to join the graduated class Facebook group to be able to mingle with other business owners that have been on the same path as you to build a solid and sustainable business. This group allows you to network and get advice from other business owners while also having access to all of our coaches for guidance and support. You will also be invited to our next class level or our mastermind group!

No matter where you are in your business journey we strive to offer ongoing support, guidance and resources

Sharing The Credit

  Sharing the Credit makes everything we touch give.  We often save businesses thousands a year, while showing the business how to legally redirect a fee to their favorite charity. This makes you ‘the business with a heart’. You can even get a MC/Visa door sticker showing your charity. We’ve given away millions that normally just go back into the system, but now go to your cause.

Prepare 4 VC helps early early stage founders connect with the right people, at the right place at the right time to grow and scale their venture. We started with a simple goal of boosting the 98.5% of startups that are currently left out of VC financing and the 9/10 startups that fail to help you build a successful venture.

    After taking several courses on building an online business, I realized there were many missing components that no class revealed until I took Suzanne's eight-week group coaching session. Suzanne is like the art teacher who creates the numbers for you to paint your business masterpiece! Her paint-by-numbers approach has helped me establish my business vision with laser clarity. I now have a 5 phase business plan designed to take me to the top of my game!

    Joanne Mello - Owner, Empowerment Through Healthy Habits
    Be a Beacon in your Industry changed the trajectory of my coaching business. Starting a new business I had no idea about the structure and systems, or the dynamics and algorithms of social media and marketing. Suzanne’s program is structured in a simple step by step process that’s so easy to understand. The private FB cohort group was supportive and entertaining ! Suzanne’s in depth understanding of business along with her attention to detail combined with her genuine compassion to help you succeed is unsurpassed! Thank you Suzanne
  • I would recommend this online workshop to anyone who is starting a business

    Gail Hicks - Celly Sculpting
    I was very pleased with this online class to help me understand and learn all the facets of business marketing from beginning a business to social media and how to implement. There are so many branches to building a business and so many different ways to reach your clients that this class explains every aspect of helping you to promote and drive more business to you and also helps you to manage your time better. I would recommend this online workshop to anyone who is starting a business and needs motivation and help or to anyone who is already in a business and needs inspiration or to expand their reach. Suzanne is a wonderful wealth of knowledge in the business marketing and she understands and operates all types of branding to help you facilitate the direction you are heading.
  • If you want an accounting of your worth, count your friends

    Jessica Smith - Amazon co.
    People who build their own home tend to be very courageous. These people are curious about life. They're thinking about what it means to live in a house, rather than just buying a commodity and making it work.

Our Courses

Be A Beacon Startups

Be A Beacon Startups is our initial course designed to help people develop their business quickly with the least amount of friction possible.

We ensure that you are building in a profit bearing space before you decide to build your business. We assure that your business will not just be based on passion with no ability to turn a profit.

This is a self guided course that you can go through in as little as a couple of weeks. There are 8 lessons and 8 challenges to go through to prepare yourself for business ownership. By the time you complete this course you will have a legitimate business up and running and ready to roll! 

Dock 1

Dock 1 is our first course for small business owners. It is an 8 week course where we cover Sustainability In Business Foundation by coaching our cohort members in business development, marketing/pr, sales and mindset to maintain balance as we transition your business.

Dock 2

Dock 2 is our second course where we use the next 8 weeks to coach you on Productive Business Development. We pull from the same facets in this course; business development, marketing/pr, sales and mindset. But we also incorporate what they have learned in the previous Dock and show you how to marry that to the new information learned.

Dock 3

Dock 3 we get into Sustainability Through Growth. During these 8 weeks you learn how to grow and scale your business while also learning how to have your systems and strategies grow with your organization. This unfortunately is where most companies fail, making this entire course a necessary component for success.
