Our educational philosophy

The eL3 Learning Tree

At eL3 Hub, our educational programs are the trunk and branches of a tree. The trunk and branches must be strong to weather high winds and torrential rainstorms. If they are weak or diseased, the tree will fall over in a breeze. We offer an intensive, comprehensive course teaching you to think like a business owner and develop a financially viable business model. You create and test your business ideas before investing time, money, and resources. 

OUR CORE ONLINE EDUCATIONAL OFFERING FOR SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS​

Trunk and Branches

The trunk of the El3 Learning Tree symbolizes the core Plan Forward course. This course provides training for anyone who wants to start or grow a business with confidence.  

The branches represent our smaller, deep-dive business courses on key areas of  business, including marketing, financial literacy, HR, and risk management

THE FOUNDATION AND REAL-WORLD APPLICATION OF OUR PROGRAM

Roots

The root system of our eL3 Learning Tree is represented by our Business Champion experts. They are Business Champions because they are leaders in their field plus give back to their community. 

They provide real-world expertise and knowledge through our individual and group consulting. 

BALANCE, SELF-LOVE AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

Leaves

In our program, we offer self-care education and support, as finding and maintaining work/life balance is essential to every business owner. The leaves on our tree represent our balance offerings. 

Leaves absorb sunshine. As a small business owner, you and the business are one and the same. The success of your business relies on you staying healthy – physically, mentally, and emotionally. We help you learn better tools for self-care, from nutrition, to meditation, to yoga, to learning how to make the most of your time off. 

FRUIT SYMBOLIZES THE countless BUSINESSES THAT OUR STUDENTS CREATE

Fruit or Flowers

The fruit or flowers of the eL3 Learning Tree represent the moments of inspiration and shared experiences from real business owners, entrepreneurs, and leaders in the business community.

These powerful stories, examples, and lessons from our former students keep you inspired and teach you vital lessons about resiliency and the power of the pivot.

 

OUR COMMUNITY OF SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS LIKE YOURSELF

The Forest

The community is represented by the surrounding forest. It is a place to ask questions, get answers, and share encouragement with fellow entrepreneurs. It is a safe place to share successes, knowledge, challenges and ah-ha moments.
