"I was very impressed with Dodie’s ability to provide very specific and detailed advice on a range of business topics when people would ask.”

– Will Buchanan, Treadwell

"I was definitely expecting practical application and skills, but I came away with that plus inspiration and a huge energy boost.”

– Ashlee Smith, Kazoo

"It makes you feel good to know that you're not the only one out there that has troubles and successes. It's nice to hear how other businesses react to it and what great ideas they might have."

– Dan Meiners, Studio Dan Meiners

"Not only were all subjects covered expertly, but it was fun and educational to listen to input from all participants. I hadn’t thought about the networking benefits of the class; that was an added plus!"

- Linda Casey, Premiere Coach Services

business edge | Be more.

At mobank, we live small business. It's what we do and what we know best. And your success is at the heart of everything we do.

We also know that you have the instincts. You're not afraid of taking risks. You know your stuff. But what if you had one more edge, the advantage of knowledge that makes your intuition more valuable? What if you and your business could be more?

Inspired by our desire to see you succeed, we've collaborated with entrepreneur Dodie Jacobi to present a course that gives you the Business Edge.

Dodie developed successful programs for the Kauffman Foundation, including KCSourcelink, as well as for top area b-schools Rockhurst University, Kansas University, and UMKC’s award-winning entrepreneurship program. Dodie earned KCPT’s Maker award for the community impact of her work in entrepreneurship. Dodie mentors a portfolio of entrepreneurs individually and in her group programs. She also continues to develop her own ventures, making her the best kind of mentor, a practitioner who is always learning with her students.

Since 1998, Business Edge has helped more than 300 small business owners be more. During our six-week course, Dodie, and a team of experts, will work with you to…

  • Be more clear about what success means to you
  • Be more focused on meaningful goals
  • Be more money-savvy
  • Be more effective with digital marketing
  • Be more connected with other small business owners
  • Be more of the kind of employer your employees want to work for

Included with all this real business experience is a mini-library of books and a powerful course agenda designed to turn your inner business owner into a business-building entrepreneur!
