Hey Smooth Operator!
I’m Alicia. I designed this Smooth Operator Masterclass to save you thousands of dollars in lost revenue every year. I don’t want to see you or any entrepreneur fail just when things begin moving forward. This is why I’m so excited to share in your journey towards extraordinary growth.
For Busy Business Owners Ready to Scale to the Next Level
We get it, you’re busy. Your business is growing faster than you can keep up with and you need to expand your team just as fast. You need to put a structure in place that’s strong enough to support the growth, yet flexible enough to make room for rapid changes. Having a business that ultimately runs like a well-oiled machine without your daily presence is the goal. If you’re really serious about moving from owner/operator to owner/CEO in your company and want access to a proven system that works around your schedule, then this course is for you! It’s structured into three manageable volumes based on the Kasennu framework.
Here’s What You’ll Get
Although the free audio portion of our masterclass campaign ended, you’re still in luck! Now, you can see the lessons from the free audio masterclass come to life as part of a new learning experience in your quest to operate a business that works without bogging you down. This learning experience comes in a three-volume course that includes demonstration videos with downloadable templates and other supportive resources based on your learning style.
Volume I is now available!
By the time you complete Volume I, you’ll have the tools and know-how to:
Define the core activities required to sustain your business,
Find the ideal person to run your back-office operations,
Create transparent job descriptions to build and grow a loyal team,
Look and act like you have a plan for scaling in place.
I’ll teach you how to create a Business Parts Analysis – the first key element in building your business infrastructure so you too can have Smooth Operations.
Reimagine your infrastructure.
Sometimes all it takes is a reframing, a reimagining, of how your business should operate and the infrastructure it takes to support it. You’ll get inspiration for that too.
Document your processes.
Big companies spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on consultants like me to do this for them. I’m going to teach you to do it for yourself.
Relaunch your business fresh!
Now that you’re set up to properly handle the growth you’re experiencing, you can experience the joy of the other side: what it’s like to be a real Smooth Operator!

“I like to thank Alicia Butler Pierre for her workshop on Business infrastructure, through MindValley. It was so insightful. I have been working as a freelancer for a long time, but have decided to build a business around a concept called True North. And the work made my mind spin, trying to do everything by myself currently. This absolutely was an eye opener, and great start for me to dive into the structure of my business and create space for me to focus on what I really want to focus on, building my dream.”
“Alicia’s audio mastercourse is such a necessary resource for business owners looking to grow and scale. Workflows and operations are easily pushed to the back burner when you have a massive vision and mission in mind; however, you’ll have a very difficult time achieving that vision and mission without these necessary pieces. Tune in for great tips and strategies along your journey!”
“I was introduced to Alicia through her podcast & YouTube show. I’ve always admired her willingness to freely share her knowledge with others! …Alicia delivered a great, informative, and actionable training on Business Infrastructure! Alicia is truly a phenomenal teacher, trainer, presenter & workshop host!”

Business infrastructure is a system for linking the people, processes, and tools necessary to scale in a repeatable, sustainable, and profitable way. It provides the foundation for manageable growth and shows how a change in one area impacts all other areas of your business.
You! Especially if you own a fast-growing small business and you have more customers than you can handle. You may not want to do all of the detailed work yourself in these courses, but you do want to educate yourself enough so that you know what to look for in your next COO, Operations Manager, or whoever you put in charge of daily operations in your business.
The courses are based on the book, Behind the Facade: How to Structure Company Operations for Sustainable Success. Purchasing the book is not required, but highly recommended. The demonstration videos in the course reference information from the book. You may find that you want additional details about some of the concepts you will see and/or hear in the course. The book provides those details.
LinkedIn. Access is granted to this private community once you’ve signed up for the course.
You can expect to spend between 45 – 60 days to learn and apply the lessons with measurable results. Yes, you can work through the materials faster but our experience tells us that you and your team are probably really busy and can only realistically apply only a few hours a week to this course. Plus, we recommend allowing yourself time to absorb the materials.
The additional volumes of the course are currently going through an evaluation by a group of beta testers. We want to make sure we deliver practical information that you can immediately apply to your business.
We highly recommend starting with Volume I of the course as it provides the foundation for information covered in the other volumes.
There are currently no CEUs associated with this course, however we are actively working on making this available if you need credit to maintain a professional certification.
Your Smoothness is Waiting.
There’s no better time to direct and control your business path than right now. Our courses will give you the resources to turn the nightmare of chaos, frustration, and overwhelm into the dream of a successful business you always imagined. Don’t delay.
