For free, you can join a Slack group full of other entrepreneurs starting or growing their own vegan businesses. To access a network of like-minded people is very powerful because it allows you to learn from others' experiences, and find motivation by sharing your wins.

On the other hand, you can access several free resources to improve your business. Vegan Mainstream offers two free podcasts, guides, articles, and two hubs of curated content that teaches technology and social media for vegan business owners. The community also has two paid podcasts, which include more high-level content on a subscription-based model ($5/month or $60/year).

Additionally, you can participate in live events. There are weekly webinars and live streams that provide entrepreneurs with a weekly dose of ideas and inspiration for their businesses. You can also watch past webinars on-demand. Moreover, there are monthly workshops dedicated to providing high-level training on a specific topic. Each workshop costs $37 and includes a Q&A session afterward.

Besides live events, Vegan Mainstream also offers three paid courses ($147 each), coaching opportunities, and one-on-one consulting sessions. Lastly, you can pay a subscription-based pass that unlocks all paid educational content and give you access to an exclusive community of other students in Vegan Mainstream's own platform. It costs $197 every three months, $347 every six months, or $597 yearly.

Meetings

Members of Vegan Mainstream's paid community SKILLS have access to several meetings. On the one hand, there are daily two-hour working sessions that allow you to focus with other members in dedicated rooms inside the community's platform. On the other hand, members of SKILLS join biweekly sessions where one individual member is invited to share their knowledge and expertise with the rest. Additionally, you can participate in 7, 30, and 100 days challenges and share your experience with others.

Moreover, there are monthly paid workshops, as well as weekly free live events that allow Vegan Mainstream members to always be learning.

Learning Events

Free members can participate in weekly live streams. These live events provide vegan business owners with a weekly dose of ideas and inspiration to keep their businesses moving forward. Additionally, you can also register for free webinars or watch past webinars on-demand.

On the other hand, Vegan Mainstream hosts monthly live workshops. Every workshop costs $37 and it has two sessions at different times. You can choose to attend only one or both sessions. Each workshop includes actionable steps towards the desired outcome (depending on the topic), as well as a checklist to keep track of your progress after the event. Likewise, after the workshop, you will participate in a Q&A session and have the opportunity to network with others.

Lastly, you can explore coaching options with Stephanie (Vegan Mainstream founder) or her one-on-one consulting sessions, if you need a professional to give you a hand.

Networking Events

Vegan Mainstream has a free community where vegan business owners join a Slack group to connect and interact. This free community, called the VM Village, includes an accountability buddy program. This is an awesome opportunity to be matched with a small group of vegan entrepreneurs, to facilitate mutual support and mentorship.

On the other hand, you will be able to join weekly challenges with the rest of the members, to learn while executing different tasks to improve your business. Lastly, this community offers a spotlight for members who want to share their stories, and you can leverage this opportunity to get exposure for your business.

On the other hand, Vegan Mainstream also has a paid community, called SKILLS. This is a subscription-based pass that allows you to unlock full access to Vegan Mainstream's educational content, in addition to a community of other SKILLS members. Both communities are great for vegan business owners to connect with like-minded people and bounce off ideas, insights, and knowledge.

Quote

"I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie Redcross to help me with a variety of my business needs. It's quite amazing how many areas of expertise Stephanie has — and not just on the surface. She was able to help me with questions I had about overall business strategies, as well as marketing, online courses, email campaigns, and event organizing. But more than her technical skills, Stephanie blows me away when it comes to how present she is, how well she listens, how well she understands. Her follow-up is incredible, her professionalism is impeccable, and her compassion is authentic. I can't recommend Stephanie highly enough." -Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
