Indie Business Blueprint (IBB) FAQ

Is IBB open to the public?

No. The Blueprint is available exclusively to members of the Indie Business Network. To join, click here.

How is IBB different from the training I already get if I am an IBN member?

All of our training products work together but at different levels. The regular virtual training offered inside the membership is high level and necessarily shortened due to time constraints. Maker Mastermind Live  meets you where you are at this moment in your business, at ground zero, and empowers you to distill the high level principles we discuss in our virtual training programs into the daily practical realities of leading your business.

Maker Mastermind Live provides the instruction, interactive brainstorming, and mentoring that you cannot get with through periodic virtual events that are often consumed via replay. Maker Mastermind Live condenses all of the training into one place, to help you align your business vision with the practical steps you must take on a daily basis to execute that vision.

Is IBB for me if I am just now starting my business?

Absolutely! IBB a sequential business training and mentoring program. It's more than a checklist of assignments and a bit of follow-up homework. We've built mentoring and interactive peer-to-peer masterminding into the event. You'll be immersed in support, and given meaningful strategic direction for whatever stage of business you are in.

Is IBB for me if I am more advanced in my business?

Yes! Maker Mastermind Live is a business training and mentoring event. It's more than a checklist of assignments and a bit of follow-up homework. We've built mentoring and interactive peer-to-peer masterminding into the event.

Does IBB includes one-on-one coaching and mentoring with Donna Maria?

Donna Maria meets with you personally during the live weekly group coaching sessions and inside the virtual online member community. (One-on-one coaching and mentoring with Donna Maria is available as a separate purchase if desired.)

Can I access IBB course materials, resources and recordings on my laptop, mobile device or tablet?

Yes. You can easily access the resources on your laptop, mobile device or tablet using the username and password you selected when you joined IBN. All materials are available and easily accessible to you wherever you are in your busy life.

What if I miss a live session?

Each session is recorded and uploaded to the IBN member area so you can watch the replay at your convenience. You can also get your questions answered via the private member community after the live event.

Can I register if I live outside the United States?

Yes. As long as you are a current member of the Indie Business Network, you can join us.

What if this event does not meet my needs?

No problem. Pursuant to IBN's Impeccable Integrity • Total Responsibility Guarantee, we offer a 24-Hour Money-Back Guarantee for this event.
