Speaking in Rio de Janeiro
It was clear from the Year of Action book tour, that women wanted to take action in their lives – but many didn’t have the basic business skills (or mindset) they needed to succeed.
So – in 2013, Author, Erin McCormick did a test.
Combining the feedback she had gotten from women on the book tour, with her experience of being an entrepreneur, techie and former Director, Curriculum Innovation & Technology at Babson College, Erin created an online program to teach women the essentials from business school – but in a more relaxed and inviting environment.
It was a safe space to ask questions and practice your skills.
She wanted it to feel more like you were having coffee with your girlfriends than sitting in an intimidating classroom. It was designed to boost your confidence and courage, along with hard business skills.
Women loved it and Action B-School was born.
It's Part Business School. Part Tony Robbins. Part Lynda.com. Part Girls Night Out.Essential business skills taught in a relaxed and inviting environment.
"The timing is ripe for a program like this." - FORBES
Besides the standard curriculum, there are also “Guest Rockstars” who speak to the online classes.
This is an incredible opportunity to get up-close access to business experts, ask questions and hear how “they did it.”
Guest Rockstars have included:
- Author and Marketing Guru, Seth Godin

- Branding expert and Forbes Writer, Cari Sommer and
- Stanford d. School and Cornell Professor, Tracy Brandenburg
