Donald Miller advised us BMS Coaches to charge $5,000 for coaching. But I’m a RebelFish, so we do things differently around here!

Why Am I Doing Coaching For Free?

  1. The affiliate commission covers my time and my Customer Success assistant Rebecca.
  2. Local Businesses have got hammered by the big guys online and local government telling them what to do.
  3. I’m a Dave Ramsey gal. I doubt you budgeted to spend $2500 this month on learning plus spending more to hire someone to update your website and sales funnel next month. Don’t rack up more debt!
  4. There is an affiliate competition. Top 10 affiliates get to work with Donald Miller for two days. He will help me grow my business.
  5. One of our Key Characteristics (you’ll learn about this in the Leadership part of the airplane) is “We love people and enjoy serving them.” Flight School makes it easy for me to work with more small business owners.


In February 2022, I was praying and worshiping Jesus before I started my day. I heard, “all your plans are wrong for this year!” Questioning, I thought, “But our vision cast weekend in November was so good and my plan is amazing, what do you mean it’s wrong?” Silence.

I know that if God isn’t leading me then there is no point in creating something new. So I continued to doing my regular work and keep asking Him, “Ok, what’s the new plan then?”

Finally, at the end of the month I heard, “You are already smart and successful, don’t work more than 10 hours a week.”

I may be too bright-eyed and bushy-tailedwith hope for you. I was obedient to that work boundary and for over a year I haven’t worked more than 10 hours a week. When you have a team you can rely on and processes dialed in you don’t have to work so many hours.

You may think you could never increase revenue and profit working 10 hours a week.

I believe you can. You deserve to have a business that scales so you can spend time with your family, put your health first, or take a vacation.

Since my husband and I became Certified StoryBrand Guides in February 2019, every Business Made Simple course they put out we implemented it and our business grew. It is possible for you too.

Who Should Join Small Business Flight School?

Small Business Flight School is ideal for chaotic startups to scaling small businesses who want to take their business to double their revenue. Whether you’re just starting out or have been in business for years, this 6-month program will provide you with the guidance, support, and actionable steps you need to succeed.

I appreciate that Donald Miller uses examples of solopreneurs like financial services or real estate agents in the Leadership section.

“According to the Bureau of Land Statistics, entrepreneurs started 843,320 new businesses in the year ending March 2021.2 From the historical data, we can expect approximately 168,664 of these businesses to fail within the first two years.” – Investopedia

Business owners with less than 2 years under their belt, need to set up a strong foundation so you don’t become a statistic.

He hasn’t talked about non-profits but through RebelFish Local, we’ve worked with dozen so during the free BSM Coach Office Hours, I can point you to extra videos and blogs to help you understand how you will do the Messaging and Marketing differently than a small business.

However, it’s definitely geared toward a seasoned business with employees… the business is stuck and not growing as much as they’d like.

As more people like you JOIN FLIGHT SCHOOL with my affiliate link, I won’t have time for 1-on-1 coaching like this for everyone. I have a vision of having monthly Office Hours.

How Does Small Business Flight School Work?

Small Business Flight School is designed to help small business owners install playbooks and frameworks just six months. The program is divided into six parts, each focusing on a different aspect of your business each month AKA your Flight Plan.

If you have a Business Made Simple membership, that’s great! I’ve been able to breeze through Flight School quicker for our company RebelFish Local since I’ve implemented all of the older courses. I didn’t skip the videos becauseI did the old course 3 years ago. This time around I updated our Guiding Principles.

If 6 months seems too long, you can update your pase to get emails 2 or 3 times a week.

If you’ve never had a BMS membership for each email you get, you’ll want to block off 5 hours for implementation.

Business Made Simple HQ has weekly calls with James plus a Certified StoryBrand Guide or BMS Coach. I’m booked to coach on one of those this summer.

Quarterly Donald Miller will host a coaching call. He’s been doing these monthly with us StoryBrand Guides and BMS Coaches for the past two years. So I know you’ll enjoy him rewriting your copy or advising you on which business strategy is best to execute.

Which part is my favorite right now? Products! The first time I did a Profitability Audit was in June 2020. Donald Miller taught a Zoom workshop for StoryBrand Guides. At that point, RebelFish Local was launching 5-8 website refreshes a quarter.

However, that took a lot of time, our team wasn’t efficient, and we had our first unhappy website that didn’t like what I wrote and didn’t want to follow the StoryBrand framework anymore. I was disappointed and felt defeated.

We’d been a Local SEO company for 5 years, with revenue of $20-30K a month. When I listed all our services and calculated the profit from the previous year, a lightbulb went off. I clearly saw which services to eliminate and which to start marketing more.

I made a new proposal, free offer funnel, and updated our social media.

Our company grew 30% in 2020!

How Is Small Business Flight School Different from Business Made Simple?

Small Business Flight School is different from Business Made Simple in several ways. While both programs provide comprehensive guides to help business owners grow their businesses, Flight School takes it a step further.

Flight School is for people who want to be a part of a community, get extra coaching, and accountability to implement all those Businesses Made Simple courses.

It’s for someone who is super busy but knows they have to make a change and break the business cycle or rut they’ve been in.

You’ll notice a lot of the content is similar to the 6 in-depth courses in BMS. The Small Business Flight School course is simplified with video training so you can spend more time compiling your Flight Plan or jumping on a call to ensure you did it right.

I can imagine as the Flight School community grows, we’d do in-person events in Nashville like StoryBrand Guide and BMS Coaches do every fall.


Final Thoughts on Donald Miller’s Small Business Flight School

If you have $2495, 5 hours a week, and want to grow your business. JOIN FLIGHT SCHOOL and get a free BMS Coach today.

For introverts and larger companies, more frequent 1-on-1 coaching is most likely better. Packages start at 15K.

For a business that hasn’t hit 5 years yet. Take a look at these stats.

“Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) shows that approximately 20% of new businesses fail during the first two years of being open, 45% during the first five years, and 65% during the first 10 years. Only 25% of new businesses make it to 15 years or more.” – Investopedia

We aren’t here to do life or business alone. I believe that partnering with the right team, implementing proven frameworks, and having an accountability coach will be what is needed if you keep putting off that to-do list you know you need to do to be a better business leader.

I hope to see you soar and cheers with your favorite beverage when you double your revenue!
