What Students Say About the School…
Dominique Lundi (website coming in 2013!) said…
Startup Training School has been invaluable in the process of starting my website – every time I had a question about anything related to bringing a business online I only had to ask and the answer came usually within minutes. It has been magic!
The training video are clear, short enough that I don’t feel overwhelmed with the information and complete enough that it gets things right the first time. It feels a bit like having Lea sitting beside me at the desk.

I knew just enough about building a WordPress website to get myself in trouble! Since I’m building a business on a shoestring budget, I figured I could read articles and figure out how to do my own site. But the pitfalls of building a website from scratch were many – and I was exhausting my resources trying to find solutions. The result was hours wasted and a website that fell flat and lacked the design elements I wanted.
Enter Startup Training School. A godsend that offered a solution to all of my tech conundrums! I wanted to design the look of my site, rather than use a pre-designed theme – and the Startup Training School course offered all the training and references I needed to customize my branding and the site itself.
The training materials are clear and concise, but best of all is the personal support I received when stuck on some little problem. Those ‘little’ problems can hold you up for hours if you don’t have the skills and experience in website design!
Lea is brilliant, and she really knows her stuff! Being a member of Start Up Training School is like having your own personal web design consultant – one that truly cares about your business and your success.
Without Startup Training School I would have had to resort to shelling out thousands of dollars for someone else to create the site I envisioned. And then I wouldn’t have known how to make updates and changes.
Instead I have a site I can be proud of and I have a working knowledge of the underpinnings of what makes it all tick. I am so thrilled that I discovered Lea, Jonathan and Startup Training School. Can’t recommend this program enough!!

“Lea and Jonathan are really onto something with Startup Training School. The (Foundation) course is thoughtfully laid out and designed to make what can be an overwhelming learning curve not so steep.
From the get go, the course had us put into practice business skills while building technical skills.
Lea and Jonathan are very generous in the live sessions, sharing openly what has and hasn’t worked throughout their years of experience in running multiple businesses. They aim for maximum efficiency and don’t waste students’ time. The level of personal attention I received was invaluable!
I definitely recommend the school to anyone who wants to learn the nitty-gritty bootstrapping skills of getting a business online.”
Margaret Abraham of Free the Creative Spirit (UK) said…
“This (a post we posted about PicMonkey) is just another reason ladies to become a member of Start Up Training School, especially if you want to have responsibility for your own website and stop hanging around for someone in customer services to come back to you before you can move on.
I am having so much fun with the Skills Library creating a new website for a new adventure!“
Suzanne Leclair of Connect Counsel (USA) said…
“When I launched my business last year, I decided to go all out with an online marketing plan to reach my market. I thought of delegating the website design to an outside agency. The costs would have been thousand of dollars in a start up year. I tried to learn how to create websites alone and with online materials. The cost in time was frustrating.
Then one day, a noted web entrepreneur suggested I register for one of Lea’s Headway classes. The formula was perfect. I enjoyed the course so much that I registered for the inaugural Startup Training School Course. The future of business is evolving so rapidly and technical skills are a must to stay relevant tomorrow. As a lawyer, I now know to actively manage my online marketing. If you know this as well, look no further than StartUp Training School to get ahead.“
