The first and only business start up coaching and training program designed specifically for those who are starting a service-based business after 50.

You know, don’t you…deep inside… it’s your time to take your power back – and launch your own venture.

You have the desire, the skills, and the brilliance to bring your expertise to the world. You think about it all the time

You’d act on it if ONLY you KNEW it would all work out. Right?

Well here’s the truth:

For it to “work out” you’ll need 3 critical things:


Oh, and one more thing…


We are living in remarkable times:

Millions of talented, experienced, successful 50+ers like you have lost jobs, left jobs, or are yearning to leave the JOB life, corporate life, 9-5 paycheck life behind.

But now imagine:

  • No more unappreciated, undependable, critical bosses who say one thing and mean another!
  • No more employers who change strategies and “head count” on a whim without any warning.
  • No more reorgs and pay cuts.
  • The end of resume writing and rewriting and rewriting, sending dozens of them out into the black hole where hiring managers never bother to read them or give you the courtesy of an update or response.

That’s exactly why I developed The Business Fox Start Up School

– just for folks like you.

In the 16-week Business Fox Start Up School you will get:

    •  Private coaching sessions at the start and midway in the program to help you strategize and get your new business idea discovered and developed, as well as mindset and confidence guidance to help you move along this exciting new journey.
    • 7 essential training modules taking you from Idea, Mission, & Vision all the way to the Magnet Method marketing funnel and landing your first high-end clients – your personal Success Path.
    • Exercises, assignments, resources, tools, and templates for putting this training and coaching into a viable, tested business model. (Including a complimentary copy of my acclaimed e-book, Network Like A Fox: A Targeted Approach To Building Successful Business Relationships In Person & Online).
    • 16 live group coaching sessions and a community of other 50+ers who are starting and growing service-based businesses.
    • Recordings of your private and group sessions.
    • Personal feedback from your coach and group leader, Nancy Fox, to make sure your development is on track.


You are guided, coached, educated, and supported all along the way.

This program can transform your life.

All you need is the kernel of your idea, determination, and the step-by-step HOW TO for taking your unique gifts and share them with people who are wanting them more than you know.

People ask me all the time:

But Nancy, I’m not a natural entrepreneur. Should I have my own business? And how do I know this is the right time to start up my own business?

I said the exact same things to myself after leaving a long career in corporate life. I was the least likely person to be successful at her own business – or so I thought.
After I began The Business Fox Start Up School and working with Nancy Fox, I went into a prospective client interview with a new mindset. I explained to my prospect that I wanted her to feel like she was getting a great value, but I also wanted to work to my strengths, expertise, and skill level so I would be able to provide that value to her.

I offered her 2 different online marketing writing packages at rates higher than I’ve ever charged.

She opted for the higher level package, paying me twice as much as I’ve ever made. More. Than. I’ve. Ever. Made. Period. (I’m worth it and I now know it – and so does my client).

I can’t thank Nancy enough.

I can’t wait to see what the rest of this year brings. Truly I’ve been blessed and my future’s so bright now, I need shades!!

But if I did, why can’t you?

Look, let’s face it.
Life isn’t getting any longer.

It never looks like the right time, but after what you’ve experienced or are experiencing in the 9-5 world, you know there must be something better, more rewarding, and more financially viable than that. And there has never been a better time for new ideas and services in a changing business climate. It’s way more logical than trying to get a job that will probably undervalue you and underpay you after the age of 50.

I had always found it easy to get consulting assignments in the past, but suddenly, they had dried up! That’s what made me reach out to Nancy Fox, creator of Start Up School for 50+ers who have left the JOB world and want to start businesses.

This program was more than just a business start up program – it taught me about my purpose, and how to do something I love that also allows me to earn what I want and what I am worth. Here I learned that mindset and visualization are the most important ingredients when starting out. They are the foundation on which we build a successful business.

Out of this program I created something I am very excited about: a course on how to navigate Medicare optimally, and it will launch shortly, as well as a companion business that is a subscription model for recurring revenue.

A couple of big takeaways were the Niche Identification training and qualified lead generation training (The Magnet Method).

I’m very excited to be launching something I am passionate about AND where there is a market demand.

Working with Nancy and the community, I received powerful tools, information, encouragement, and motivation to keep this project moving forward!

After losing my job as Executive Director, and with ageism rampant in the workplace, I decided to start my own business. But I knew I needed a roadmap.

Little did I know I also needed a mindset reset big time! I had no idea how negative and disempowering my mindset was when I began this journey. Since then, I have, by working with Nancy Fox in Start Up School, I now have new tools for shifting my thinking into much bigger goals and beliefs that say I can and will achieve these goals. I have ways of retraining my subconscious mind so that it does not stop me from having what I want. I am now mentally set up to earn in a month what I formerly thought could be my yearly income.

In this course, I learned the importance and impact of really properly dialed in niche marketing. Through the SUS method, I tested one niche and because of the testing results, I rejected it, saved time, energy, and money, and went on to find 2 other way more inspiring, lucrative niches. I am now light years ahead of other people starting out.

I am grateful to have a whole new level of confidence and belief in myself and my worth and value as a business owner for my clients.

My biggest takeaways?

–My powerful mindset
–My niche
–My value and ability to command what I’m worth financially.

Nancy Fox’s personalized coaching and Start Up School was high quality and just the right type and level.
The group of fellow 50+ers starting and growing businesses was engaging and supportive.
The funnel training was fantastic.

This course is worth the investment and way, way more.

The learning experience throughout Start Up School has been tremendously valuable. I have not just acquired knowledge to benefit my current and future business endeavors; I have personally transformed!

I learned how to identify my exact ideal niche market (which I would never have seen or selected without my work in Start Up School) and the essential problem and solution I am uniquely qualified to help this niche overcome.

I went through a tremendous mindset shift as I consistently worked on crafting and establishing my business. The well-integrated process of developing a signature system was a huge eye-opener for me.

I identified my ideal niche, developed the framework for my training program, and learned how to use key online tools to test and attract ideal leads.

I now have new confidence and skills and the structure to go after my dream of being a thriving online entrepreneur.

Join me, Nancy Fox, The Business Fox, and your fellow 50+ers in Start Up School today.

You know your admission ticket has your name written all over it.

I loved working with Nancy. She’s empathic and supportive, but also knows when to apply some “tough love.” She expertly guides you toward your own conclusions and insights, but will also help with practical advice when you need it. My view of my business and my role in it underwent a major shift during this program, and I feel as if I have a much deeper understanding of my business and where I am headed in the future.

–I gained twice as many members in my relaunch than was my goal.
–I sold my first high-end client package.
–I gained confidence during a negotiation—I would never have been able to go into my contract negotiation with as much confidence and self-assurance as I did without Nancy’s coaching and backup! (And landed the deal I was hoping for!)

Right after our first session, I wrote a 5-figure revenue stretch goal at the top of my whiteboard for the next two months. I want you to know that not only did I reach this goal, I surpassed it! I’m delighted with this accomplishment and feel confident that I can replicate it because you have helped me formulate a process that is organic to me.

More importantly, in the course of our training together, I’ve shifted my understanding of who I am, what it means to be an entrepreneur, what I uniquely offer, and my perception of myself – in short, my mindset. I’m awed at the transformation, and I am so appreciative of your talents and tenacity. Thank you for your insights, your devotion, your candor, and for cheering me on- insisting that I step fully into my venture

Nancy understands the challenges 50+ people are dealing with. She was able to reinvigorate my own value. Helped me build huge levels of confidence! Can’t tell you how important that was at the time! Being told that 30 years of work had no value is beyond demoralizing. She helped me to refocus on what I can do, what I WANT to do. After my phone conversation with her, I realized she has the wholistic life approach, which is exactly what I was looking for. YES, I need to make a great income. YES, I want to be successful again. But I also want to enjoy my life and be happy. I forgot what happy felt like. She is a no nonsense person who wants to help you succeed. You just have to do the work.

Start Up School and Nancy helped me identify my ideal business concept and structure. Even some off shoots of the business for once the core business is established. I got a comprehensive business format for how to build a successful business that I want to work and pays me well. How to use specific online tools generate business. And being in Start Up School allowed me to be with a group of like-minded people to bounce ideas off I am thrilled with my experience. I truly believe I could have never come up with my business idea and offer without Nancy’s help. One of the best things I have done in last 15 years is engage with you, Nancy! So blessed and grateful to have you with me on my journey to promise land.
