This life-changing course is for you if...
You've had a great idea for a while, but you just don't know how to get started.
Ideas are just the beginning, but what do you do next? What steps do you take to actually turn your idea into a living, breathing, profit-making business? We'll show you the exact steps you need to take to launch your business, and we'll be by your side for the entire process!
You don't have the money that you think you need to start a business.
Starting your own business can be risky, but we have a better way that removes a lot of the financial risk. Bootstrapping! We will teach you how to start quickly and with very little money so that your fears don't hold you back from pursuing your dream of being an entrepreneur.
You already have a small business or side-hustle but you need help.
Running your own business can be challenging. You feel like there must be a better way to grow, but you're not sure where to get help. We can coach you in finding ways to grow your business so that you work smart, not just hard, and you keep more of the money you're bringing in.
You think you're too old to start your own business and you're afraid of the risks.
There are a lot of angles to consider when starting a business, but age shouldn't be one of them! The network you've built, your resiliency, and your life experience are all qualities that will give you a huge advantage. And, if you don't pursue your dream now, when will you do it?
You think you need a business degree or other qualifications to launch successfully.
Becoming an entrepreneur doesn't require a business degree, special connections, or prior experience as an entrepreneur. What it does require is the willingness to keep learning, work hard, and stick with it. We believe that anyone can start their own business with the right guidance.
You're afraid to leave the financial security of your job in order to pursue your dream.
Having a job is actually a great place from which to start a business! We encourage you to keep your job at first, so that you put less pressure on your fledgling enterprise. We'll teach you how to recognize when it's a safe time to leave the financial security of your job and commit full-time.
