    For those of you on the forums who don't know me, I'm Billy- I run the ForeverJobless blog and podcast. For the last two years I've run a group called the Incubator, where I help people start profitable businesses.

    I hadn't planned to do another one, but I really enjoy it and have the time available to do one, so I've decided to launch a 2017 class.

    I announced this last week on ForeverJobless, and here are the details I've sent out so far:

    https://foreverjobless.com/the-2017-incubator-fl/
    https://foreverjobless.com/how-to-start-a-7-figure-business-in-18-months-fl/
    https://foreverjobless.com/want-to-be-one-of-the-big-2017-success-stories-fl/

    It is by application only, and we'll likely close off applications soon.

    The goal is to keep the group as high quality as possible, so if you're interested and want to join, I highly recommend putting some effort into the application. We receive hundreds of applications and only invite a small % to be part of the Incubator.

    I'm very confident that you won't find another program like this. There's not one. As you'll read in the links above, you'll talk to me pretty much every single day in our private group(I had over 600 postings during the 10 weeks from our last group), and you'll hop on a call with me every single week, for 10 weeks.

    This is not for people who want 'make money hacks' and start 'get rich quick junk'. Unlike almost everything else in the market, the businesses that launch out of the Incubator are real businesses, not temporary income junk.

    You can hear what some of the 2016 members had to say here:

    https://foreverjobless.com/what-2016-members-thought-fl

    If you want help starting a profitable business, and want to significantly improve your network and 'top 5' by surrounding yourself with ambitious, vetted action takers starting a business over the 10 week period, I highly recommend you apply to join the Incubator:

    This is Charles and I was part of last year's "Final" incubator. If you're on the fence about his incubator, don't be. Is it 'expensive'? Yes. Is it worth it? YES. When I first heard about the last incubator, I knew I had to be a part of it. Right then and there, I decided to be a part of it. before I ever even applied, I knew. So I signed up and was accepted.

    Enough about me, the amount of value he provided during the incubator was worth about triple the asking price. If you've ever wanted close access to a high-level mentor, this is your chance. But never once will you feel like you're being screwed. Billy truly wants to help you and will do everything in his power to make sure you are successful. Don't get it twisted though. There will be no hand holding. He wants this to be YOUR business. That having been said, even if you remove him from the equation, what you are left with is roughly 30 highly driven people that you can confide in and share your struggles and victories with. If you are the type of person who is ready to take action, then apply. If not, don't. You'll get out what you put in and some others from the incubator are already having massive success. If you really want to start a business but 'don't know how' and are coachable, then this is for you. It will cut your learning curve in half and force you to move. I cannot thank Billy enough for what he has done for me in the short time I've known him.

    I'll see you at the top, whoever you are.

    I was part of the 2016 Incubator class and I cannot recommend it enough to anyone considering applying. I joined the FLF back in 2014 and was hooked on entrepreneurship but could never get started due to the usual things; not having an idea, not knowing how to assess the validity of my idea, lack of experience/guidance, etc. I started following ForeverJobless a few years back and when I heard Billy was doing a 2nd incubator back in Oct 2016 I jumped on the chance to apply.

    Since, I have spent the last 6 months developing a product in the health/nutrition space that I am set to launch in June! Billy and the incubator program have been instrumental to the progress I’ve made thus far.

    While in the incubator you get 1:1 access to Billy on weekly calls, which alone is worth the cost of the incubator. He gives a LOT of great feedback on the progress you’ve made each week and helps steer you in the right direction if you hit any roadblocks – which will happen. You also get to instantly connect with a network of some 35+ others in the same spot as you! Since the incubator has ended, I have several weekly calls with members of the group which helps a TON for accountability and progress!

    The incubator program is very well designed and teaches you how to come up with a valuable business idea, how to properly market it to your potential audience, assess the competitors in the space and most importantly allows you to calculate if the business will hit your desired income goal. Along with a well laid out course, Billy brings in a TON of great speakers in the entrepreneur space as well as former incubator members who currently run successful businesses.

    After the incubator ended I asked Billy several times if he’d be open to doing a 3rd incubator since I feel like this is an experience you can’t get elsewhere as an aspiring entrepreneur. I’m glad he decided to do it again and I’d highly encourage anyone looking to launch a business to apply.

    Saw this and figured I’d throw my thoughts in too. I'm another straight out of the 2016 incubator.

    The Incubator will change the way you think about business. It gets you using the same mindset that Billy uses create his successful businesses.

    The 1:1 chats with Billy every week were huge. Being able to bounce your ideas off him each week gives you that ongoing kick to your progress. So many online courses or incubators put you in a class of hundreds of people where you're lucky to get one question answered directly the whole time. Not with Billy.

    And being surrounded by 30 others in the Incubator instantly connects you with others walking the same path. Most of my friends are content 9-5ers so connections with others going after business was massive and I've now got a mastermind of super smart dudes.

    But don’t think it ends when you get accepted. You’ve got to do the work. The Incubator is all about taking action. And Billy will push you to take it.

    What also amazed me about the Incubator is how super generous Billy is with his time and connections. If he knows someone who can help you, he’ll connect you without question.

    And it didn’t end when the Incubator did. Billy pulled together an awesome meetup in Austin and I was also lucky enough to score a spot on the podcast.

    I’m still a few months from launching, but without the Incubator I wouldn’t be this far along.

    So should you do it? Yes. But be prepared to do the work.

    And @KLaw, before you ask, a progress thread is coming soon.

    I don't know the price but I assume it could be anything up to 10k. If he was charging more I also genuinely wouldn't be surprised because he would be worth it.

    I've met Billy personally at the old Beer and Pancakes meetup for the forum and I've since talked to him privately a few times over the years. Also been on a few calls with him that he's put on in the past.

    He's the real deal. He has started real businesses and sold real businesses and runs real businesses. I've yet to hear a single word out of his mouth that isn't rooted in solid logic, reason, and math that actually makes sense. And he shares a lot of gold for free on his blog and podcast, which I highly recommend you check out if you aren't familiar with him.

    I only say this because a lot of newer members here might not know who snowbank / Billy is (he hasn't been as active here as he once was) and folks might be wary on whether or not this is another cash grab course from a guru type who doesn't walk the walk. That is not the case.

    I've never been through his incubator program personally but I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend it highly at any price. If you need a real mentor to help you start a real business with real legs (and you are willing to put in real work) - you really can't go wrong here.

    I think I've read pretty much every post Billy's ever written on ForeverJobless over the past few months. I got Billy's email about the Incubator maybe a couple of weeks ago. I read it and thought... that sounds like an incredible opportunity! If only I wasn't starting a bunch of new stuff and moving to a new country soon...

    Then I went back and read it again. Then I got another email. And I figured - this is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity. I'm happy with the direction I'm going...but expert guidance is worth its weight in gold, and when will an opportunity like this ever come up again? It'll shave years off my learning curve. I'd be crazy not to at least apply, even if I'd rather the timing was different.

    This morning I was thrilled to see I'd been accepted. Although, now the price was staring me in the face, I had a decision to make. I pondered how I'm soon going to have to pay for flights, shipping, offshore company setup, deposit & two months' rent, a laptop so I can still work while my PC is on the boat...

    Then I reasoned that you can't win by playing to not lose. And I can also sell my motorcycle to recoup the cost. Can't wait for the Incubator! :smile:

    All of this is so incredibly true.


    And it makes me question.

    Am I, as an entrepeneur and person, ready for something like the Incubator?
    Does my life structure allow me to take advantage of a 'course' like that?

    How can I restructure my life so fast I *could* take more advantage of the course?


    Questions I have to answer (to myself) before applying.



    Thank you for sharing your thoughts @Contrarian

    I think it's a secret until you have been accepted. But really, does it matter much?

    Those of you who have been a part of the incubator, what specific tips would you give the incoming class to make the most out of the 10 weeks?

    Make it your only focus - I feel I was distracted during the Incubator which limited how much I got out of it. You may have school or work, but any time outside of those things should be incubator/business focused.
