become damn good at what you do.

Whether you’re starting from scratch or want to elevate your existing skillset, our courses will help you stand out from the crowd, charge premium prices, and

You, as the CEO, make tons of SOPs and keep searching for and paying one off experts for these skillsets.

2

You, as the service provider, learn enough to get by serving clients and figure it out along the way.

1

So what happens is this…

You don’t have time to sort through the endless array of random tutorials above to figure out which ones are legit, which ones you need, which ones have enough for you to truly master your craft, and forget about finding an option that teaches you how to use those random tutorials to serve a paying client.

Let’s get real for a second time here. 

YouTube - it’s just random surface level videos.

Skillshare and Udemy - good luck sifting through thousands of random one off trainings from random instructors you don’t know.

A specific design course or a tech course from an entrepreneur - if it’s even good, mostly focuses on skills development but not how to serve clients.

There is NO WHERE online to truly, easily learn skills in depth.

Let’s get real for a moment. 

Either the quality of skills that either YOU deliver to your clients OR the skills of your TEAM to execute your vision as a CEO.

Skills.

but regardless if you are a day-one-aspiring-entrepreneur or a 7 figure CEO, I guarantee you will hit a cap based on one thing:

So you want to build a thriving online business... 

Marketing isn’t your problem. Instagram isn’t your problem. Sales isn’t your problem.

You want a booming business and reputation that creates a waitlist of clients banging down your door. You have big visions and you need confident skillsets to charge high ticket and become a “go-to” person in your niche.
 
But you’re stuck in information overwhelm or cycling through marketing course after business course after Instagram course, wondering why it feels like such a struggle to get this business to where you want it to be.

you want to be the best. 

BUT I KNOW YOU, AND

i'm ready

It all starts here.

Because when you are damn good at what you do, people can’t ignore you - they can’t help but pay attention and tell the world about their experience with you.
 
Don’t get me wrong, marketing and sales skills are crucial too, but alone they will only get you so far.

Ready to become the “go-to” person in your niche, charge high ticket prices, and feel confident AF every time a client say YES?!?

HOW DO I KNOW?

anything is possible.

To put it simply, the Academy is the next step on your path to a wildly successful online business. And once you master those desirable, in-demand skills,

The courses inside Skills Mastery Academy were designed to not only give you the hard skills you need to succeed but the confidence and context to create a high-quality client experience (and get paid top dollar). They include everything I had to figure out the hard way when I started–how to set up workflows, build a portfolio, and manage clients - all specific to each career path focused min course.

Skills Mastery Academy was created to fill a serious gap in the market. Despite the endless amount of information available online, very few courses teach you online skills in the context of becoming a service provider. And even fewer show you how to put those skills into practice.

This isn’t your average online course.

Let’s back up for a minute.

“Okayyy I watched a Youtube video and learned how to schedule Instagram posts using Later …now what? What does a social media manager really do???” 

“Okayy I watched how to edit a podcast in Garage band via Skillshare, but what does a podcast management workflow look like beyond making some technical edits?”

“Okayy I downloaded a list of 101 VA tasks that are supposed to be “simple” but what does a CEO need to do when you say “calendar management?”

“Okayy I’m capped out on clients at my current pricing and want to learn more advanced skills like Facebook ads or sales page design, but all I can find is templates and more basic skills courses that teach surface level stuff.”

sign me up

That’s exactly what the Academy will help you do.

 But trust me when I say that it’s not too crowded with top notch highly skilled providers. The fastest way to get clients with ease, charge high ticket prices, and stand out as the “go-to” person is to be damn good at what you do. And to do that you need to deliver a top-tier experience for your clients that people can’t help but talk about. 

the online space is crowded. 

Let’s face it:

This is a very unique membership. Most memberships provide scattered variety or more surface level trainings. And most courses provide one topic to teach you in depth and cost 10 times what SMA costs. We decided to break all the rules and give you a membership at a low cost full of TON of in depth courses. Now instead of spending $397-1000+ on one topic for one course, you can mix and match all the skills you and your team want to learn.

Mix and Match to form your perfect desired skillsets

03

SMA provides not only tech tutorials but also contextual trainings and practice exercises and scenarios to test your knowledge. You’ll learn how to use these skills with a client, tips for boundaries and communication unique to each skillset, and how to create a seamless workflow and client experience for each career path.

We go beyond tutorials

02

We know you have a certain goal in mind - for example, learn ClickUp for your team or learn everything you need to know to be a SMM. This is why SMA is set up via individual career specific courses to make it easy to go through related trainings, AND also you also get access to the membership as a whole where you can dive into any course or training as needed - for your own business or for skills to serve your clients.

Condensed in depth career path focused courses

I made it my mission to fill that gap, joining forces with industry experts to create the most hands-on, in-depth skills academy you’ll find anywhere online. I want as many women as possible to feel confident and be equipped to create this dream freedom lifestyle and wealth they desire.

Something was missing. 

Meet Amanda Kolbye, our Founder & CEO

No matter how many affirmations or business courses they took, they were always limited by the actual skillset knowledge and experience they had. And despite taking other VA or designer courses on the market, so many of them still came to me in Laptop Lifestyle Bootcamp feeling like all they learned were tutorials and still had no clue how to serve a client with those skills.

“I don’t know where to learn skills.” 

I had a strong desire to build my empire, and no shortage of advice on marketing and Instagram, but no where to learn high level skills for people to pay me.
 
Over the years as a business coach, I’ve now helped hundreds of women from all over the world start and scale online businesses. No matter where these women come from, regardless of their life stage or experience level, there’s one thing I still hear over and over again: 

I am a 7-figure international business strategist and educator, who started as a social media manager and designer the same as many people in this space

Amanda

 But it also included vetted top industry experts for areas outside of Amanda’s expertise. AKA you are getting years and thousands of dollar of high level insight right at your fingertips.

Skills Mastery Academy is headed by Amanda Kolbye, the CEO and founder. 

Who’s teaching the courses?

Danyah Aossey has over 10 years of social media experience not only in her own agency but also working with 7 and 8 figure companies. Danyah is a social media genius and handles clients with many platforms including YouTube (in fact she runs Amanda’s YouTube which you can see HERE). 

YOUTUBE GUEST EXPERT

Danyah Aossey

Fran Moore is a multi six figure podcast agency owner. Throughout her entrepreneurial career Fran was a VA and OBM before niching down into podcast and has served over 40 clients at one time with ease and expertise - many of whom were 7 figure business owners. She knows everything there is to know about podcasting and has clients that rave about her.

This was made for you! We know how hard it is to learn marketable skills online that you can actually get paid for–you can lose hours down Youtube rabbit holes, learning from questionable sources who may or may not know what they’re talking about. Skills Mastery Academy was designed to teach you BOTH the niche skills you need to make money online, and also how to use those skills in the context of serving clients.

100%! No matter where you’re at in your business journey, it’s important to continue to invest in your education and skillset. Whether you’re looking to learn a new skill or upgrade your existing ones, the Academy is for you! (Plus, let’s get real: more skills = more money!)

We’re going to level with you here: maybbeeeee with a ton of effort and A LOT of time, you could pick through the subpar Youtube videos and search results to find something helpful. You might be able to learn the basics that way. But the Academy goes so far beyond the basics AND it gives you exactly what you need to know (no more no less) all in one easy place. 

These aren’t just tech tutorials; every course is a deep dive into a particular skill set, showing you not just how to get from A to B, but also what it means to become an online service provider and actually serve clients with those skills.

You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers!

The need for these skills is in high demand. Your potential client is going to hire someone next month for those services either way, and it might as well be you.

The clients are out there.

All in the time it took you to read this page.

I’M READY TO LEVEL UP

It’s time to become so good at what you do™ - sooooo good, that they can’t ignore you.

Decide right here and right now that you’re done wasting time down Youtube rabbit holes, listening to instructors who may or may not know what they’re talking about. 

No other course offers this level of in-depth training beyond tech tutorials that actually teach you how to apply these skills to serve paying clients. No other course will give you the skills knowledge you need to stand out in this noisy online world and become a “go-to” hire.

You know what I’m about to say here (because it’s the SMA motto)…

Your brand reputation and client experience are the most valuable things you need to protect and devote to excellence.

It’s time for you to stand out and become the “go-to” hire in your niche, and mastering your skills with 100% get you there. 

But don’t just take it from me. I interviewed 20+ 6 and 7 figure entrepreneurs about why they chose certain people over others when making a hiring decision, and their answers will validate just how important mastering your craft is.
