Do You…
Love Meeting New People? Thrive When Taking on New Challenges? Enjoy Competition?

Then Consider a Remote Career as a 

Business Development Representative 

Our Business Development Representative Program Will Take You From “Where Can I Work that Works for Me?” to a Remote Career with a Future…
In Less than 4 Months (even if you don’t have any experience right now)

I get it. . .

Finding a Remote Career is HARD.

You’ve encountered things like…

  • Only finding remote jobs that pay a paltry amount of money because you aren’t technical enough to get the high-paying ones.
  • Not having the targeted experience employers are looking for to fill a non-senior role.
  • Competition is even tougher when applying for remote positions.

Or, maybe you’ve given up and you’re afraid to try again because you’ve been burned in the past…

Maybe you’ve tried getting remote work only to be told you need a very specific degree or experience.

Maybe you’ve doubted yourself because you know you need to be certified, but you’re not sure what or how you’d do that
(and, let’s face it, there are a lot of shady companies out there).

Perhaps you’ve invested in training only to be handed a bunch of
videos and descriptions with
no real human to talk to about it.

Yeah, I’ve been there. . .

Hi, I’m Kara.

When I first started looking for remote jobs over 10 years ago, I had a lot of problems.

Technology was very different then. Remote “jobs” were mostly scams.
“Working from home” was not something that could ever allow you to have a career path.

But, now I have a Remote Career (not just a job) at a company that I love! 

And what I’ve learned along the way is… 

The solution to finding the right Remote Career is 

Having The Right Skills AND Having The Right Community

It’s the “AND” in that solution
that most people miss.

You see, if you have the right skills but not the right community, you won’t have the right connections to help you past the gatekeepers of the Remote Career jobs.

If you have the right community but not the right skills, you may make it past the gatekeepers, but you won’t land the job because you’re not qualified.

It’s the combination of
Skills AND Community
that leads to a sustainable, flexible Remote Career.

A career you can tell your friends and family about with pride because you earned it.

Your career, with a  future and a growth path that will provide you an income for years to come.

I want those things for you and  I’m excited to show you how to do the same because I know…

Remote work can be steady, fun, and even give you a career path.

Like the career path where I just got a promotion to head up a huge initiative to help YOU!

We want to paint a picture of where our graduates were before they started with The Academy… 

  • Many were military spouses who struggled with constantly having to change careers each time they moved
  • Some were just looking for a career that allowed the flexibility for them to spend more time with their families
  • Others were remote job searchers who couldn’t find anything due to the paltry pay, stiff competition for better jobs, or lacked the experience required for high-paying remote opportunities.

But after completing the program, our graduates have been able to land remote work at Instant Teams or other companies that suit them. 

Now, they have a sustainable remote career that…

  • Doesn’t care if they move (so they don’t constantly have to career switch)
  • Gives them the flexibility to be with their family the salary to support them
  • Allows for career advancement and personal growth opportunities.

Here’s what some of our graduates say
about their experience with Instant Teams Academy.

“I highly encourage this program, it has changed my life and my family’s as well.”

“I went through the BDR program almost one year ago. I had no idea what to expect let alone what a BDR even was! The program was broken up into easy to digest sections that I could tackle in my already busy schedule. The small group sessions were definitely my favorite. I went on to get a job at an amazing company.

I was hired with no work experience in the field but because the interview team was so impressed with The Academy. The people that run The Academy are knowledgeable, supportive and deserving of more praise than I could put into words.”

– Leslie Hauge Wernert

Senior BDR for Western and Central Regions at HappyCo

“I got hired at a company that I am truly passionate about and The Academy played a huge part in that!”

“I cannot say enough positive things about their courses! Being able to complete a certification online and still get face to face live sessions is so beneficial for those of us that don’t have the ability to attend a “traditional school” but still like some real interaction. 

The courses are led by very educated instructors who have real life experience in these areas! They know the day to day and that helps give an extremely well rounded education! I enjoyed the BDR course so much I moved straight into the Recruiting course afterwards. Who knows, maybe I’ll take them all! 😉 

If you’ve been on the fence on taking a course with them – take this as your sign to move forward! You won’t regret it!

Then, you’ll schedule an appointment to talk to an enrollment specialist.

They will answer any other questions you may have and get you signed up if it is a good fit.

Q: Who is Instant Teams Academy For?

A: Instant Teams Academy is for you if you’re ready to invest in your future, creating a career that allows you to work remotely with excellent salary and advancement opportunities. 

The best candidates will have the ability to work at least 20 hours per week after graduation.

Q: Is this Open to OCONUS Spouses?

A: It sure is!

Instant Teams Academy is great for you because it gives you the ability to move wherever you want and still keep your remote career. 

There is one exception… spouses in Italy risk losing their SOFA status if they work. But, if you’re in Italy now and moving soon, still consider investing so you’re ready to go when you arrive at your next destination.

Q: How Fast Can I Recoup My Investment?

A: Given the average salary of a Business Development Representative1 is $53,719, let’s say you find a job that pays at the low end of that scale at $50,000.

At $50,000 per year, you’ll earn $4,167 per month.

The investment in Instant Teams Academy is only $3800… so in one month of full-time work, you’ll have earned that back!

If you can’t work full time, it may take 2-3 months. 

Now, I get it, it’s not like you’re going to pay all of that in one month. 

But imagine earning enough money to be able to easily pay the $283.33 monthly installments along with providing you and your family some things that have been on your wishlist!

Q: Are There Scholarships Available?

A: Yes! Instant Teams Academy qualifies for the MyCAA (Career Advancement Account) Scholarship Program.

MyCAA is a workforce development program that provides up to $4,000 of financial assistance for spouses of service members on active duty in pay grades E-1 to E-5, W-1 to W-2, and O-1 to O-2. To find out more about this, apply to Instant Teams Academy and Ashley can give you all the details.

Q: How Much Time Does it Take to Learn the Skills?

A: We know you’re busy! Between work, kids, and downtime, there isn’t a lot of time left!

That’s why we designed the materials to allow you to work at your own pace.

Each program takes approximately 30 hours total, so you can break that into your schedule however you’d like!

Q: Do I Have to Work Full Time Upon Graduation?

A: Not at all! It’s up to you how much you decide to work with a company. The best candidates will be able to devote at least 20 hours per week to their Remote Career.

Q: How is Instant Teams Academy Different from Instant Teams?

A: Instant Teams Academy focuses on training you, helping you find remote work, and supporting you every step of the way through that process.

Instant Teams focuses on building remote teams by matching the workforce with positions based upon factors such as experience, culture, and skill fit.

Q: Do I Have to Find Work through Instant Teams after I Graduate from Instant Teams Academy?

A: Nope! While we hope you do, it is not required. We will help you find the best company for you and your career goals.

Q: What if I Don’t Like It?

A: We totally understand we may not be for everyone! We offer a 14-day full refund guarantee starting from the day the program starts.

Q: What Tech Do I Need to Go Through The Academy?

A: Stuff you probably already have… a computer that can access the internet and play videos. And a working webcam. That’s it. 

Oh, and maybe a notebook and a pen (those were considered high-tech back in the day!)

Q: Are there any special perks with Instant Teams for being an Instant Teams Academy graduate?

A: Yes! As an Instant Teams Academy graduate, you get some special perks with Instant Teams! Your profile goes to Remote Pro Status, so you’ll be among the first candidates to be considered for open positions at Instant Teams.

“I can’t recommend The Academy enough”

“Some of the key traits that we are often challenged to learn as military spouses are adaptability, resiliency, proactiveness, and having a positive attitude as we roll with the punches. In saying that, having to adjust careers every time we move can get very disheartening. Moving back to the states and finding a career that “fit me” was harder than I expected… 

Until someone recommended The Academy to me. They not only helped me pivot in my career, but they helped me figure out where my passions and talents meet to help me find a “dream job”.

What would you be willing to invest to make $250,000 in your Remote Career the next 5 years?

How about even making the average salary of $50,000 for the year?

Let’s do some math…
At $50,000 per year, you would earn $4,166.66 per month.

The investment in Instant Teams Academy is only $3,800… so in one month of full-time work, you’ll have earned that back!

If you can’t work full-time, it may take 2-3 months. 

Now, I get it, you may not be able to pay all of that in one month. 

But imagine earning enough money to be able to easily pay the $283.33 monthly installments along with providing you and your family some things that have been on your wishlist!

Now imagine what will happen if you don’t do this…

Where will you be in a year? 

In 5 years?

Probably close to where you are right now.

But with the right skills and the right community, you could be earning $4,100+ per month with less than 3 months of time spent training.

Don’t wait…

All the best,
