I just want to give a quick shout-out to Angelina Bell who I’ve just spent the last hour and a half with talking about the Roadmap MBA. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

It’s amazing how through conversation a good coach can unlock things which were always there, but perhaps hidden. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Even though I’m brave enough to livestream to 19k people twice every week, Angelina identified that I had been holding back on really promoting the business under fear of criticism or judgement from others.

I was doing the same with my mission.

Through only two conversations together, creating the pitch deck and also gaining feedback from our 1000+ users worldwide, I genuinely do believe that there is a gap in the market for what we’re trying to do and complete belief in the community mission behind it – bringing free business education to the world.

Previously our mission was “making business education accessible” … but Angelina helped me see that my goal is actually much bigger. ๐Ÿค”

After reviewing the tagline of the well known Silicon Valley startups I want to emulate, our mission is now “making business education accessible for 5 billion people” …. reflecting our true ambition โ€ฆ and we actually have the plan to do it.

I no longer want to hide through playing it safe, or be scared to talk about our true ambition and what the end goal looks like. ๐Ÿคฏ

Yes it is tough and yes there will be challenges, but I’m willing to fail as long as I know I’ve tried my best.

I’m also a convert on how having someone to talk to who can push you towards things which you might not have been brave enough to reach on your own. ๐Ÿ“ˆ

Thank you to Ailsa Anderson for putting us together!
