Can I tell you how much I LOVE this question? I do. For two reasons. One: I get total pleasure from witnesses the excitement and passion that fellow Creative Entrepreneurs bring to the table when contemplating a new venture.
Second: I have the opportunity to get them started on the RIGHT path. One that will ensure they get started not only directionally correct, but start with the right mindset that will go a loooong ways in ensuring ultimate success and profitability.
Businesses are started every single day, by well-intentioned individuals. Some have a plan, some don’t, some are the fly-by-the-seat-of-your pants type. And I totally get that. (PS – for more in-depth reading on how to create a rock-solid Biz Plan, check out THIS post.)
However, when it comes to working with Creatives and businesses based on Creative pursuits, I can tell you that it’s best to have a Plan which will help you start your venture with solid footing. And further, I want to give YOU the confidence to take those first steps and know you’re headed in the right direction.
It’s then that you’ll start experiencing your first few successes. And success breeds confidence.
So, I’m going to share with you the same process I teach my private coaching clients.
It’s comprised of FIVE simple steps.
But they are crucial and you’ve got to get them right. It will save loads of frustration and possibly expensive mistakes. And if ANYONE can benefit from the learning curve of someone whose walked the path before them, you’d be crazy not to say, “heck yea!” to that!
