Business Class Drives Results

"Neon Cowboys' revenue has grown 216%+ since joining Business Class last quarter. As a team we dug deep, iterated quickly, hired their recommended experts, and learned from Sophia's experience and expertise.

"I can hands down say that Business Class is not like any other masterclass in the market. It's a no-fluff, no-BS approach to business. It's soooo extensive! From marketing, to legal, to finance, and more! I've never been sooo immersed with an online community ever."

“Business Class found me at a very transitional point in my life but it was the kick in the ass I needed to push past my fears of the unknown. I’m proud to say I am now working with a team to develop my skincare brand Raw With Love. Sophia’s approach to building a brand takes you through a journey of self-discovery, ambition, and empowerment. It’s definitely a ride worth taking.”

"Business Class introduced me to so many concepts that I didn’t even know about beforehand. It helped round out my knowledge base as an entrepreneur. In addition, it gave me a great community of fellow entrepreneurs to rely on. I also launched my business, sold about 150 bags in 69 orders, and generated $10,000 in revenue!"

"Just quit my day job and feel super liberated! So many of you had inspired me to take this leap and gave me the confidence to trust that things will work out for the better! I’m so excited to have my very own business be my main focus moving forward. Thank you Business Class for changing my life!"

I've Been There.

When I was in the early stages of my first business, Nasty Gal, I had no mentors, a few Dummies Guides, and the fractured, endless hole that is Google. Unfortunately, I had to learn through extreme trial and error, but I came out the other side and now have over 15 years of experience building businesses to over $100 million in revenue. With Business Class, I’ll share exactly what you need to know to navigate the murky waters of business ownership and avoid the costly mistakes that I made.

Is Business Class Right For Me?

Business Class is for you if...

  • You’re a founder with a great idea who’s ready to bring your product or service to market

  • You’re an existing business owner who’s ready to professionalize and scale with best-in-class, proven methods

  • You want to learn the ins and outs of building a profitable, sustainable business

  • You’re ready to nerd out on all things strategy, marketing, brand building, creative, finance, leadership, and more

  • You’re ready to commit to a fun, and at times challenging, program and meet other entrepreneurs like you

  • You're excited to join a thriving community of entrepreneurs that you can network with and get feedback from daily

Business Class isn't for you if...

  • You’re at the stage where you’re not sure if you want to start a business, or if starting a business is right for you

  • You aren’t willing to fully commit and put in the work—this is an in-depth course on the real deal stuff that comes with business ownership, not fluffy optimism

  • You plan to raise a bunch of venture capital and build a money-losing business (I tried—not qualified to teach that course)

  • You prefer a stiff, clinical learning environment with dated textbooks in rooms that smell like farts

  • You hate airline puns, abhor fun, think you know everything, or plan to be a hassle for my team

Your Chief Flight Attendant

We Are Committed To Building An Inclusive Experience.

The Business Class Scholarship Program aims to expand access to business education to founders from traditionally underserved and underrepresented groups, including the BIPOC communities, LGBTQIA+ communities, and people with disabilities.

To accomplish this, we’ve committed to awarding $200,000 in scholarships by providing lifetime Business Class access to 100 promising founders and founders-to-be.

The Scholarship application period for the Fall 2021 enrollment is now closed but will be returning again in Spring 2022.

FAQs

When does Business Class start?

Enrollment for Business Class is open from September 22 to October 1 and the program will run from October 4th to December 10th. Hope to see you in class soon!

How much is the course?

Business Class costs $1,999 USD, which gives you lifetime access to all course content, any of its future updates, as well as The Lounge, our members-only online community of entrepreneurs. For those interested, we offer a 12-month payment plan for $199 USD per month.

What is the Lounge?

The Lounge is our exclusive online community created just for Business Class members. Inside, you can connect with your fellow students from across the globe and all Business Class alumni. The Lounge is also where you’ll receive extra support and guidance from Sophia Amoruso and the Business Class Flight Crew, and where all of our weekly live call events are hosted.

Can I enroll in Business Class at any time?

Enrollment for our flagship Business Class program is only open twice a year. Why? Because we go through it together. Over the course of the 10-week program, you’ll be guided by Sophia Amoruso and the Flight Crew through the content and join weekly live events. The enrollment period for this season is September 22 - October 1.

How does the course work?

The Business Class program is fully virtual and takes place over 10 weeks. The course content is split up into 7 Flights (our word for modules), each of which contains pre-recorded video lessons and worksheets that you will work through on your own time. There are also 3 layover (break) weeks throughout the course to give you time to digest, catch up, or implement what you’re learning. Every week on Thursdays, Sophia Amoruso will host a live call where she’ll be joined by some of the greatest guest entrepreneurs to discuss that week’s topic. All live calls are recorded and shared inside our community, The Lounge, for playback in case you can’t make it live.

Business Class is self-guided with the exception of Sophia Amoruso’s live calls, so you’re able to take the course at your own pace, and you get lifetime access to everything. We understand that life gets hectic, so if you fall behind or need to deplane for a bit, that’s OK – we’ll be here to support you!

How long does each module take?

We recommend budgeting about 4-5 hours each week. It shakes out to about 1 hour watching video lessons, another hour reading and taking notes, and 2 hours filling in worksheets and doing the exercises that go with each week’s Fight. You’ll also be able to join Sophia Amoruso for a weekly live call and may want to spend some additional time connecting with fellow entrepreneurs inside The Lounge. Of course, you can take the course at your own pace—you have access to all of the content and the community (plus any updates) for LIFE!

What if I need help as I’m going through the course?

We built an online community just for Business Class students called The Lounge. This is the best place to receive support throughout the course. Inside, you can ask questions, seek resources, connect with fellow students, and interact with both our Flight Crew and even Sophia Amoruso herself!

Do I need to already have a business or have prior business experience to take the course?

No. Whether you’re a seasoned business owner or just starting out, the lessons in Business Class can be applied to any business, in any industry. We’re here to help you become a successful founder and build your dream business.

All you need is an idea! Bring it to class and Sophia Amoruso will take you through identifying what you’re best at and how to apply that to your business idea in our first Flight. From there, you’ll learn how to test that idea out in the market, then continue to grow that into a smart, sustainable business.

When does Sophia Amoruso go live during the course?

Sophia will host weekly live group calls for each Flight of the course, every Thursday at 10 am PT. These live calls are open to all Business Class members. A full schedule of the fall season’s weekly live calls will be shared in the near future–stay tuned!

Is the course available in languages other than English?

At this time Business Class is only offered in English, but we hope to expand to other languages in the future. Currently all live calls and course videos with Sophia Amoruso are closed-captioned in both English and Spanish, and we also provide transcripts for the course videos in case you’d like to translate them. ​We currently have a diverse range of international students that have found these helpful in completing the course.

Can the lessons be applied to an international market?

The lessons learned in Business Class can be applied to any business, regardless of the country. You’ll learn the ins and outs of building a profitable, sustainable business using best-in-class, proven methods and Sophia Amoruso’s 15+ years of experience as an entrepreneur.

While the legal and financial information in the course is based on U.S. laws, all of the lessons can be applied to any business by serving as a guide of what entrepreneurs need to know to have their business in order.

How will I know that Business Class is right for me?

Business Class is perfect for founders-to-be who have an idea, and existing founders who want to build, scale, and professionalize their businesses with best-in-class proven methods.

As long as you want to learn the ins and outs of building a profitable, sustainable business and have an idea you can build on–this is the right course for you! Just be sure you’re ready to put in the time to commit to a fun (but sometimes challenging) program and meet other like-minded entrepreneurs. Hope to see you in class soon!

My business sells products! Or services! Or is a brick-and-mortar business! Will this work for me?

Yes! The lessons in Business Class can be applied to all types of businesses and industries, and we’ve had founders from a sweeping range of business types succeed in the program. You can learn more about them here.

Can I meet Sophia Amoruso?

Unfortunately, there is not an opportunity to meeting with Sophia one-on-one at this time. However, she’ll be hosting live group coaching calls open to all students throughout the course. You’ll also be able to receive extra guidance and support from the Flight Crew in The Lounge!

What is your refund policy?

We stand behind everything we do and we back that up with our satisfaction guarantee. We just ask that you give it two weeks to put in the work. If you don’t feel we’ve delivered on our promise, simply email us by October 15th at 2pm PT and we’ll issue you a full refund.

Are there discounts or scholarships available?

We don’t offer discounts, but we do provide a Business Class Scholarship Program, which aims to expand access to business education to founders from traditionally underserved and underrepresented groups, including the BIPOC communities, LGBTQIA+ communities, and people with disabilities. The Scholarship application period for the Fall 2021 enrollment is now closed and will be returning again in Spring 2022.
