“Simply put… this course is SPECTACULAR! Mary's Small Business from Scratch course is the perfect way to jump-start your business. I always knew I wanted to be a small business owner someday but never had the tools or knowledge to say GO.

After enrolling in this course I can say I now have what I need to go all in! Mary's teaching style and openness helped me feel confident to do it myself and EVERYTHING was covered. Her passion for small business and small business owners shined through in every part of this course and gave me the tools and confidence I needed to build my own business. I will be forever grateful to Mary and her team for this course.”

“Mary has an energy and passion for agriculture and small business which fueled us during this intensive course. I was surprised yet impressed with the pace of the course and the quantity of relevant content, this is what made the investment worth it. Not only did we cover everything a small business owner in agriculture should know, there was an immediate sense of camaraderie within the group.

The way Mary presents all the material and shares her own story, made everything seem more attainable. Learning creative ways to get started selling our product, creating a website myself, designing our first business cards and banners and ordering them from Mary’s suggested companies (which arrived two days after I returned home!) as well as looking to the future and developing shipping methods and insight into hiring and employees - it was all invaluable as we grow our small business!”

“Mary is the reason we can ship beef from our Montana ranch! After months of research, hundreds of questions and thousands spent on packaging, we shipped our first box of beef. It was a disaster. I reached out to Mary at Five Marys Farms for help. She graciously offered her knowledge and expertise and solved our shipping issues. I am forever grateful for her willingness to pay it forward and share her secrets. 

 Mary is blazing a trail in small business success. Her shipping solutions alone are worth far more than the investment in Small Business from Scratch. When Mary offers insider guidance and instruction on social media, selling and shipping products and perishables, be the first in line! Mary’s success speaks for itself and yours will too.”

After starting the course I am feeling motivated and refilled with valuable tools to add to my tool box. I would definitely recommend this course to others!

For where my business is now and where I plan on growing, this course touched on everything that I could possibly need to know and included skills I can develop for at least the next two years or more.”

“I had high expectations going into this course, I can honestly say it exceeded that mark. The most important lesson I gained from Mary during this workshop was to put my ideas into action without expecting perfection and to make it happen.

Prior to this course, we had so many marketing ideas, but many of them seemed unachievable in a short period of time. Post course, we have already started revamping our website, drastically improved our Instagram profile, we have started compiling recipes for our cookbook, searching for more swag favorites and above all we are crafting up creative ways to market and sell our products. This course was the boot camp we needed to push us to the next level, while being the confidence builder we needed to believe in our story.”

“This small business course is one of the best investments I have made in my business.  Mary is extremely knowledgeable and offers great suggestions and insight to help you take your business to the next level.  Whether you are just starting out or are an experienced owner, you will gain un-matched knowledge on foundations, marketing, branding, and everything involved in owning a small business.  It is clear that Mary has a passion for helping others succeed. 

I find myself muttering several times a day that "Inspiration has an expiration." (a quote by Mary) when I don't think I have the energy to keep going on whatever I am working on.  She truly empowers you to fell like YOU CAN DO IT.”

"I wouldn't even be starting our beef business right now without Mary and her small business course!  It was overwhelming to think of all the details I would need to address before even beginning coupled with the risk of not knowing if there was even room in the market for us.  Not only did Mary convince me that there was more than enough room, she gave me all of the tools to get started.  She literally handed me a plan, and I've revisited the coursework numerous times since returning home!  I'm excited to say we've started feeding the beeves we will sell this fall, and a barn is going up for Bell Road Beef this month.  Brian and Mary have taken what they've spent years learning, and instead of keeping all of the answers to themselves, they've shared them with us... encouraging mutual success instead of competition.  This is a course for everyone!"

“I have thoroughly enjoyed becoming a part of the M5 Entrepreneur group through the Small Business Course! I have been lifted up and encouraged to share more about our boutique dog boarding business and have already seen so many positive responses.

We had our best month EVER last month and our engagement via our social media account has doubled in less than 3 weeks of changing our practices!

Thank you, Mary - you make learning so easy!”

“For me, one of the scariest things about starting out was all the unknowns - it's enough to stop you in your tracks.  In fact, it did several times.  But with the M5 Small Business From Scratch Course, you not only get the modules with the strategic and tactical how-to's, but more importantly, you get access to the online community of people who are facing similar challenges or better yet, have already overcome them.  

It's like having a group of peers and mentors at your finger tips cheering you on.

I had the opportunity to attend the Small Business workshop with Mary just 2 months ago. Since returning back home to the ranch, after getting the direction and help in the course material, and gaining an awesome community in @m5entrepreneurs with lots of added encouragement, it’s amazing to see what you can accomplish in just 2 months! Ideas keep coming and new doors keep opening for us, from taking her course. I highly encourage anyone to take this course! it is not just for agriculture businesses either, this is for any small business and SO worth it!

“I was completely overwhelmed with the ins and outs of starting my own business and not really knowing where to begin. Mary lays everything out in a step by step process that is easy to follow and implement no matter what business venture you’re headed out on. She truly loves to help others and watch them succeed. I love being a part of the invaluable M5 Entrepreneurs community!”
