Most business owners lack focus. They don’t really know what they are working towards so they have no idea what they should be working on.
What’s YOUR dream destination?
Why are you doing what you are doing?
Freedom? Impact? Control?
Do you have a plan for how you are going to get there?
(Not just in business, but in life?)
Building a successful business is a wild adventure.
You need courage, persistence, and a plan.
You need to begin with the end in mind.
The best way to get where you want to go, is to know where you want to end up.
Building a business is an exciting journey, but it can also be incredibly scary and overwhelming.
You often feel like you “don't speak the language.”
To succeed, you need a translator. Someone who can break it down for you, and explain it in English.
When you explore a new place, it's easy to get lost to wander into unsafe areas and to make dumb decisions. You need a guide. Someone with experience to show you the way.
I can show you how to get where you want to go — in style.

Our live training calls are an anticipated event each and every month, with members participating from all over the globe. Some of the tools and strategies shared during the calls end up becoming some of the most impactful trainings of the entire program, and members talk about specific trainings for months and months within the community. Each call and presentation is recorded, so if you can’t make it live, it is still available to you!
Business Class members also get access to our private community of entrepreneurs and business owners. The community is one where people support each other, connect, ask questions, get feedback, and offer up their own insights and encouragement in a trusted group setting.
The Business Class team is always on-hand to assist as you go through the training guides or have general questions about your business, and we love to highlight member questions, wins, and feedback requests from the community within our weekly emails and during our training calls.
Accountability is such a powerful and crucial element of business ownership. Accountability helps keep you motivated, it connects you with others, and accountability helps keep your goals front-of-mind. Without any sort of accountability structured into your business, you operate as an island, and are susceptible to the pitfalls of not having a support structure in place.
All aspects of the Business Class program include an element of accountability to assist you in moving forward with your own business objectives. For example, we’ll include implementation challenges in the Destination Guides and on our training calls, and we encourage community accountability within the VIP Lounge. Whether you are are a solo-entrepreneur or a business owner leading a team, we want you to know that you’re not alone on this journey, and that we’re here to help you.

You've seen the photos and heard the tales: entrepreneurs running their businesses from their laptops anywhere with a WiFi connection — from the beach, a ski lodge, a château, their lake house or even their own backyard. And you may have thought, “That sounds great, but I don’t even know where to start to get there…”
I used to wonder the same thing. My husband Devin and I longed to travel, but we had multiple businesses to manage, including a factory and a warehouse in California. In spite of the apparent limitations, we were determined to design a live for ourselves of complete freedom.
We had to make our own path which was hard and took many years; now we've mapped the route to make it that much easier for you.
Our first big step was moving from California to New York City — and leaving the physical aspects of our businesses on the West Coast. Since then we’ve traveled to France, Anguilla, Italy, Switzerland, Japan and Capri. I’ve run my three thriving businesses from a streetside cafe in Paris, a private plunge pool, the Spanish Steps, and a chalet in the Alps.
True success looks, tastes, and feels like freedom.
Now more than ever, the real reason that people start businesses is to experience freedom. Our ambition is not to have the corner office with a huge company (and equally huge responsibilities tying you to it). It is having a business that allows us the freedom to #workfromwherever — whether that means from a café in Paris or the park with your kids.
Business Class an ongoing learning environment that will provide the exact tools, strategies, and steps you need to take to make your #workfromwherever dream a reality.

If you’ve ever traveled abroad, you know how quickly things can go wrong: one missing piece of the big picture can have disastrous results. Without a quality map — or, even better, a guide — you can end up taking wrong turns, missing out on exactly the things you wanted to see, and end up completely lost on the wrong side of town.
The same can happen when running your business. Luckily, Devin and I have many stamps in our “business passports” — we've literally been there and done that when it comes to running a successful business. So we can help you navigate all your options, and get from Point A to Point B effectively and enjoyably.
Everyone remarks after seeing my Instagram “How did you build this life? How did you build your businesses so that you could do that?”
This is how.
When you build a business, you’re not just designing a business you’re designing a lifestyle. When you build a business the right way, you can have the flexibility to live and work from wherever you choose.
When we started our business back in 2006, I never dreamed I’d start a movement, but I wanted to build businesses that would afford me the freedom to #workfromwherever.
We had to learn by trial and error what NOT to do, but through our journey we discovered how online business could give us the freedom we craved — both with a physical products business that relies on a factory and a warehouse and with our education business. In 2010 we took the leap and moved to New York City, while still running our seven-figure manufacturing business remotely.
That was when we knew it was all possible and started planning trips to destinations we’d always wanted to visit — without putting our businesses on hold. I started posting photos of me working all over the world using the hashtag #workfromwherever, and I was blown away by the response.
My photos not only got many likes and comments, but people started posting all kinds of creative photos of their own showing how they #workfromwherever.
It was then that I realized that I had touched on something powerful.
It’s a hugely powerful concept and a true freedom I want to help more people realize — which is why we built Business Class. If a successful business that provides you with freedom is your goal then Business Class will help you get there.

Growing up my parents used to tell me to go to school and get good grades so that one day I could get a good job and live the American dream. I went to school, got great grades yet only encountered an American nightmare. With little to no jobs available my husband and I had to make something happen. We had to make a living somehow and we had to act fast. That is when we started building our network marketing business and found great success working from home. In no time, everyone wanted to learn how we were successful. People wanted to learn the strategies we used to prospect and recruit for our MLM business on Facebook. So my husband created an amazing information product, FB Prospecting Power, to show people exactly how we did it. For a while the product sold well thanks to word of mouth advertising but I knew there were a lot of people that we were not reaching.
THE STRATEGIES WORKED IMMEDIATELY. In the first month of employing the strategies learned, our Facebook Fan Page went from 500 to 5,000 Likes and our sales soared! We had over 1,000 new e-maitls added to our database and traffic to the blog was higher than ever before. In addition, numerous coaching requests led us to launch a membership site two months later.
Not surprisingly, Melanie and Devin Duncan’s training and service did not stop there. They also created a wonderful group on Facebook for all the members of this program to interact in. There I not only got feedback directly from Melanie and Devin but I was able to connect with thousands of like-minded entrepreneurs.
I am a relative newborn when it comes to the game of entrepreneurship. By trade I am a by-the-books school teacher who thrives in structure and appreciates the rules. Needless to say, I was daunted by the challenge of joining Ella Dynae Designs, a start-up business specializing in custom, heirloom quality costumes and clothing for girls.
I had been charged with the task of directing Ella Dynae's marketing and to aide in company branding. I knew I needed help and guidance and I needed it fast. It was wonderfully serendipitous that around this time I discovered Melanie Duncan's Online Edge Academy. I had enrolled in her Power of Pinning webinar, understanding the value Pinterest could hold for a company like mine, but needing the tools to optimize it. After the webinar, I was vitalized by Melanie's methodical and tangible approach to marketing in social media.
I was suddenly in my comfort zone and knew that membership in this program would become my invaluable toolbox. Since becoming a member and utilizing the coursework, I now feel as though I have an obtainable and scalable strategy for marketing and branding.
Each course is taught in a way that is enriching and conveys a level of mastery in the business. Yet at the same time, the teaching is always accessible despite my lack of expertise.
In just a few months time, I have implemented Melanie and Devin Duncan's strategies for maximizing the effectiveness of Facebook advertising and Pinterest marketing and have seen AMAZING RESULTS! Ella Dynae's Facebook page likes and engagement have increased by 20%, Pinterest is now the 2nd largest referrer to our Etsy retail site, and OUR SALES HAVE MULTIPLIED THREEFOLD!
Ella Dynae has become one of the top sellers for children's Halloween costumes on Etsy. I even utilized the email marketing course to help Ella Dynae get the word out about our participation in the Martha Stewart American Made Audience Choice Awards, helping us secure a win in the Style Category.
This program has been my life-saver in this challenging endeavor and has empowered me to take risks and reap the rewards.
As a Client Magnet Specialist, Marketing Coach in layman’s terms, business was good but not as good as I’d liked it to be; especially after 4 years! I was struggling to meet new clients and to get my program and products in front of new clients. I was already blogging regularly, had a video blog and even an Itunes show but I knew I could do more!
In Jan 2013, I made an intention to find someone who could really help me break the 500k mark as Id been stuck here for 2 years. It seemed that every conference call, webinar or live event I’d gone to was mediocre and not for those with extensive business experience. In late summer, a friend forwarded me an email from Melanie Duncan about a new academy she was creating. I have to be honest here and say that initially I thought Melanie was just another pretty face that could sell anything but the more that I began to dig into her company, the more I realized that this chick knew her stuff and maybe I could learn something. And, for under $100, even if I didn’t, it’s not like I was flushing thousands down the drain as I’ve done previously.
I’d seen webinars before. I mean, unless you’ve been under a rock, you realize they have been the hot thing for the last couple of years now, but I honestly thought they were more appropriate for those with digital products and not those with services. When Melanie released the webinar training series, all of a sudden a light bulb went off. I could sell the digital products that I have to promote my coaching programs!
That same evening, after watching the training, I set a date and start spreading the word about my first webinar. I was a ball of nerves but I must say, I followed everything Melanie did even down to the clock within her webinar to say “It’s time to make a decision” and move into my offer and the countdown clock for the time remaining for their deal.
The response was phenomenal! I sold 121 of my digital products within the first 15 minutes and 23 more, later that evening after the special was over. I was also able to sign 2 people up for my exclusive 1 on 1 intensive who had heard the webinar and loved the content. In total, my first webinar after following Melanie’s advice PROFITED me $28,654 within 24 hours! Boy was I thrilled!
I then put that webinar up on automate and am waking up to several hundred every morning from what has sold in my sleep!!!!
You’d think that was enough for me there but it wasn’t! This past week, I did another webinar to directly promote my 2014 coaching program. I offered amazing fast action bonuses and gave them a deadline just as Melanie suggests and by midnight, I’d signed 8 NEW CLIENTS into that program for $108,000!!
Because of this program, I’ve already broken 6 figures for 2014 and the year hasn’t even started yet! I’m well on my way to breaking my goal of 7 figures!
Thanks so much for this training.
I take it back… you are much more than a pretty face!!!! You are brilliance!
The training and amazing community inside this program has helped me get clarity on my business goals for the year, and has given me the tools I need to achieve those goals.
I even added a new service, Facebook Ad Management, after going through the "6 Steps for Maximizing Your Online Business Growth" training and discovering that Facebook ads were a major pain point for my clients that I could help solve.
As a result, I have DOUBLED my business income since joining the Academy by implementing the marketing and sales strategies I learned in the Academy.
I'm getting new clients every week as a direct result of the Academy I am thrilled that I joined!
