Looking to get your new start up off the ground?
Looking to launch your business and set yourself free once and for all?
Start Up if for those of you who want to turn your paper napkin sketch into a flourishing business and beyond but haven’t quite manifested your dream into existence.
Starting a business, isn’t easy and the journey an entrepreneur embarks upon is fraught with challenges. As you start down your path, you’ll make decisions, major decisions that could affect you for a long time to come. It requires understanding of many issues and facets of business as you transform your business idea or concept into a fully-fledged business.
We’ll let you into a secret you’ll never know everything you’d ideally know, not on day 1, not on day 1001. Even if you’ve done it before it won’t be the same.
Let’s not kid ourselves starting a fast-growing business is challenging and it does require a depth of knowledge and variety of skills you may not have previously encountered.
You need to know enough to know what you don’t know
You need to know just enough to know what to ask
Just enough to take the next step.
And then there’s the “other” stuff..
– What is it that’s holding you back?
– What are you so afraid of?
– Who are you now, and who do you want to be?
– What are your motives?
– What are your passions?
– What do you want your future to look like?
– What are the values and ethics you want to bring to your business plan?
– How do you see money, is earning a fortune your prime motivation, does the idea of asking for money in exchange for your services fill you with dread or do you see money merely as a conduit to manifest your dreams?
– Does your idea fit the reality of both the marketplace and who you are?
