I’ve been thinking about starting a business, but haven’t yet. Should I still take this Masterclass?
Absolutely! If you are feeling nudged to start something new then this Masterclass will give you the wisdom you need to start well. It will also give the practical framework and product development process to make your dreams more actionable.
I have been in business for years? Will I get any value from this Masterclass?
Probably so! It will very likely be enlightening to evaluate your established business through the lens of biblical wisdom, and see which areas might shift as a result. While there are many resources on the how-to’s of business building, this Masterclass focuses on aligning your business with faith-based principles to structure your business for both balance and impact. If you sense the potential to grow in these areas, please enroll. If you have all that dialed in, it may be safe to pass. But then again, we’d still love to have you in the community of like-minded entrepreneurs we’re creating.
I plan to build a nonprofit, not a business. Will this course help?
Yes. While the primary audience for this course is business owners, most if not all of the Guidelines apply to both for-profit and non-profit enterprises.
How much time will this program take?
Each Guideline features a short video ranging from 5 to 15 minutes. This is followed by personal reflection in the form of completing a VisionSheet (our version of a Worksheet, but one completed while inviting God to speak into the answers). So each Guideline takes about 20-40 minutes to complete. With 12 Guidelines that means a total investment of about 6 hours. We recommend completing one Guideline a day with a day of rest and reflection in the middle and at the end (for a total of 14 days). With that said, you will have lifetime access to the online course. So you can complete it at any time and at any pace that works for you.
I won’t have much free time October 15-27? Should I still take the course?
Probably so. Granted: you will get maximum value by being able to engage in some or all of the LIVE Office Hours. But you will be able to refer to all the content that comes out of those Office Hours even if you miss them. You will also have lifetime access to The Pattern online course, so you can go through it when you are able, and review it all as needed. While we may offer The Pattern again in the future, we do not have a future Masterclass with 4word Mentors planned. So this may be your only opportunity to enroll.
Is this a business course or a Bible study?
It’s both! This course is a unique combination of biblical study and reflection plus practical business implementation advice. The video for each Guideline opens and closes in prayer. Each one is inspired by biblical principles and features relevant Bible verses. A few address mindset shifts that can only be accomplished through partnering with the Holy Spirit. But the focus is on equipping women to take action, grow their business for maximum impact, and maintain balance with every area God has called them to focus.
It may be helpful to also share what this course is NOT. It is not a daily devotional to inspire you but leave you without actionable steps for creating transformation. It is also not a course that gives you step by step marketing plans, or shows you how to finance your startup, or interpret financial reports. We believe this course will transform your mind and your business in ways that come from this unique, category-defying combination.
