BUILD A BUSINESS THAT   EXCITES YOUR CUSTOMER

Starting a business is hard. It takes hours of researching your idea, talking to loads of potential customers, gathering timely insights from veteran entrepreneurs, and on top of it all, needing to stand out.

Have a great idea, but don't know how to make it a business? Or have a business, but aren't sure how to make it last?
Does this describe your frustrations in getting started?
You had an idea!
You have a unique perspective or skill set that causes you to tinker. When you should be working, you're designing products, researching solving problems, and your idea seems to be growing bigger and bigger. You've started to obsess and can't take your mind off getting this idea going, you just know it could be a great business and make a difference. 
You got to work.
You started to map out your idea more. You googled how
to be an entrepreneur. You looked up how to get your business incorporated and how to get funding. You talked to some people to see what they thought about your idea. They usually met you with some excitement BUT then you started to get the millions of follow up questions filled with doubt on how you'd make it happen. 
You got stuck.
You got discouraged. There was an overload of information, advice, next steps and no matter how hard you worked, nothing seemed to move the needle. Or maybe you did get started, but you now the planning part of your business has been sucked into the urgent. Your website is no longer up to date, social media numbers keep going down. You need a reset, but you're not sure what's next and what will be the best use of your time.
You're not alone. Founders often fail because they:
- Spend too much money and time on the wrong things when starting up
- Don't truly solve their customer's problems
- Aren't asking themselves and others the right questions
- Aren't talking to the right people -- meaning the people that will actually pay you
- Are going it alone
So what can you do to set yourself up to succeed?
- Map your idea onto paper in a way that allows for quick changes 
- Identify the true problem you're solving for your customer
- Learn from the people that will actually pay you
- Test parts of your business model with quick experiments
- Create a launch plan (pivot plan) that covers all your bases
We're here to help!
