Give Back With ResponsiBid’s Level-Up Program

Give Back With ResponsiBid’s Level-Up Program

Remember when you first started your service business?

Long hours. HARD hours. It felt like you were lost in a desert thirsting for any help & guidance you could get.

Well, right now there are tons of new service business owners going through the same thing.

And maybe you’ve thought:

Is there a way I can help other business owners thirsting for guidance?

The answer is yes. We call it:

The Level-Up Scholarship Program

Keep reading and you’ll learn:

  • What the Level-Up Scholarship Program is.
  • How It Works.
  • What happens upon graduation.
  • And how YOU can help.

1. What Is The Level-Up Scholarship Program?

The Level-Up Scholarship Program gives struggling service business owners free access to education and accountability coaching. It’s designed for hard workers looking to transform from owning a “job”…to owning a “business”.

This program is NOT a hand-out, either. It’s a hand-up!

It requires a solid work ethic, a willingness to learn, and a strong drive to succeed.

In other words, The Level-Up Scholarship Program is not for everyone. Only service business owners actually willing to put the work in will be approved.

2. How Does It Work?

We’ve teamed up with Conquer to create a scholarship program focused on 2 things: accountability & education.

  • First, recipients will be enrolled in a 12-week course that teaches them how the sales, marketing, operations, and finance portions of their business all work together.
  • Second, they’ll attend monthly 1:1 accountability sessions to ensure they’ve effectively applied what they’ve learned to their business.

Our goal is to give program members all the tools they need to “own their business” and not be “owned by their job”.

The program is 100% free for recipients. All funds are through individual monthly donations that are matched by ResponsiBid.

3. What Happens Once They Graduate?

Graduation takes place after the 12-week course is completed and recipients become the masters of their business.

And if all accountability goals have been met throughout the program, as determined by their 1-on-1 coach, then they’ll receive bonus graduation gifts as well.

Here’s a list of all the graduation gifts that program graduates will receive.

Graduation Gifts:

  • 1 free year of ResponsiBid Ultimate
  • 1 free year of SendJim
  • 1 free year of Quality Driven Software
  • Free admission to Bookkeeping Academy’s online “4 Weeks to Better Bookkeeping Class”
  • 1 free month of “guaranteed hire” to recruit their first employee by Blue Skies Admin Services (job postings, applicant filtering/vetting, and interview setup)
  • 1 free ticket to the ResponsiCon sales conference

4. How Can I Nominate Someone?

The only way a business owner can enroll in the Level-Up Scholarship Program is by being nominated.

(You can not apply for the program yourself.)

Once you sign up as a donor on our Patreon page, you’ll receive a link to nominate someone you think would benefit from the scholarship program.

After that, we’ll send that person an application to see if they’re a good fit for the program.

Being nominated for the program is NOT a guarantee they’ll be admitted.

We’ll only be admitting applicants that are a good fit and only if the funds are available.

5. How Can I Help?

Ready to join us in giving back to the service industry? It’s easy!

You can donate up to $10/mo directly through our Patreon page.

And for every dollar donated, ResponsiBid will MATCH it with our own $10/mo donation too.

With your donations and ours combined, our goal is to reach $20,000 a year in total funding. But this can only happen with your help.

If you’re ready to join us on our mission CLICK HERE to donate on Patreon.

Conclusion

The Level-Up Scholarship Program is a great way to give back to the service industry.

It’s designed for new or existing service business owners looking to work hard at truly owning their own business…and not just a “job”.

How to NOT fall off the curb

Do you remember when you were a little kid, riding your bike all over town? I sure do.

I remember when my bicycle was my key to freedom. I used it to escape the constant hostage of Saturday chores. In fact, sometimes I finished my homework before the sun went down I would sometimes just ride around until I couldn’t see the street anymore because of how dark it was.

I’m not sure if it was a consequence or if it was in spite of it, but I was bitten by the bicycling bug. There was a time in my life just a mere 10 years ago, that I wondered if I could make a living just riding my bike.

The funny thing is, that it took until I was in my very early 20’s that I realized how to break the age-old psychological trap that we’ve all experienced: where the bike pulls us off the curb even though we’re fighting with all of our might to stay up.

Perhaps I’m not explaining it very well, imagine riding down the sidewalk on your bicycle and inching closer and closer to the drop-off of the curb. You’re riding parallel to that 3 inch drop off and inching closer and closer to it. About the time your tire crosses the line that positions you within 4 inches or so to the edge, the curb becomes very magnetic––dare I say as if it was a black hole sucking you off and into the asphalt. You remember how funny you looked as you fought to keep your bike upright. But invariably, you end up either crashing, almost crashing, or just looking silly but no matter what; you came off of the curb.

It wasn’t your fault.

In fact, even when I was beginning racing mountain bikes through the deserts of Arizona I was plagued with this terrible psychological pummeling when I tried to right along the curb.

Would you like to learn the secret?

I’ll share it with you, but you have to promise that you won’t laugh when you hear how simple it is.

It’s sometimes simplicity that makes us shrug off some of the most valuable pieces of information we’re ever given.

So: with that understanding I now share with you how to ride a bike along the curb without falling off.

Look where you want to go. Do not become distracted by staring at where you do not want to go.

See, I told you it was simple.

Go try it, get on your bike fix your vision exactly on the path you want to ride along. And you will be astonished. It’s that simple.

So what’s the meaning of me telling you this? It’s the irony that this is exactly how we as business owners can be. If we stare full of fear at all of the terrible things that could happen to us, and allow our minds to be filled and clouded with all those fears and worries, we will find that our focus is exactly where we don’t want it to be. That misguided focus will act as a tractor beam pulling us into exactly what it is we are trying to stay away from.

Do you believe that?

Do you spend your time focusing on what you want your business to become, who you want to become, or moving towards the goals you’ve set for yourself? Or do you just have some abstract idea of what you’re trying to stay away from and spend your entire day trying to keep that from happening?

is there a spiritual void in your life, because you are spending all of your energy on material wealth? It won’t go with you. Focus on being a blessing to others, and you become indispensable– by definition! Take some time to find out what God’s plan is for you, and you’ll be amazed at the difference it makes in your day to day life…

Kind of interesting isn’t it? I can’t say I’m perfect, but I’ve learned to ride along the curb with about 90% success ;)
