Course Description

Are you an entrepreneur or freelancer looking to launch a new business idea? Do you have an existing business that isn’t working so well? Want to learn the correct way without spending a dime?

If so, this course was designed for you. 

This course was designed specifically for people who want a quick, effective, and economical way to build a profitable business model. And guess what? You don’t need an MBA to get it right! 

It’s ideal for those who want a plug-and-play method to take an idea from conception to final product. You also don’t need to create an elaborate business plan (hint: this is an outdated method). 

Before you launch your idea, you need to start here.

Learn how to:

  • Design a business model that GUARANTEES customer demand
  • Create an “evergreen” process that helps your business evolve with change
  • Uncover what drives value for your customers, putting more money in your pocket
  • Ensure your business model is profitable BEFORE investing resources
  • Lower risk & shorten your learning curve


  • You DO NOT need to have a deep understanding of business. Literally, anyone can master this process using the framework from this course. 
  • You can create your own business model — from start to finish — in ONE sitting.
  • Case Study included —follow along with practical examples.

The system used in this course is based on the international bestseller, Business Model Generation by Alex Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur. It covers the key elements to designing the perfect business model—one that not only works, but also helps you maximize value AND profits in your business. 

At the end of this course, you will walk away with a powerful foundation that allows you to get your business up and running as quickly, effectively, and inexpensively as possible. I will show you how you how new age entrepreneurs are testing their market assumptions using quick, iterative, and lean business principles to launch multi-million dollar businesses. 

Why you should take this course:

I want you to make the investment in yourself and your business by developing the CORRECT framework needed to build a profitable business from scratch (or improve upon an existing one). 

In just 1 1/2 hours you can walk away with the necessary skills to create your own successful business model — quickly, effectively, and with little-to-no cost. The modules are designed for you to follow along with me. By the end of the course, you will have a first draft of your business model already finished!

And remember, you don’t need a business degree for this framework to be effective. In fact, this course sums up the best elements of an MBA program in less time than it takes to watch your favorite movie.

P.S. I’ve made myself personally available to students within the course (for free) — something I generally charge my clients lots of money for. This alone is worth 100x the price of the course.

Instructor Biography

Brice Holmes, Entrepreneur, Consultant, & Online Business Expert

My #1 goal in life is to help others live a meaningful life and help them monetize their passions. As an entrepreneur, I have found that Internet-based businesses have provided me the best solution to financial independence, but more importantly, they have given me freedom of choice, time, and LOCATION. What's more, they allow for a scalable and low-cost alternative to brick-and-mortar businesses and can be started in a relatively short time—with minimal investment.

As an MBA, with an emphasis in entrepreneurship, I have started nearly half a dozen of these businesses—all Internet-based, and ranging from eCommerce to virtual consultancy. I've used my own career as a designed experiment that I can leverage in my consulting. By optimizing my own businesses and carefully documenting all lessons learned, I am able to take these skills and use them for the betterment of my clients.

All of my courses are based 100% on my own experience in my journey to financial independence and freedom from the traditional 9-to-5.
