Action Steps to apply to YOUR journey:

How do you start a business?

First start with what your skills are:

What skills do you have or what skills do you want to offer in your business?

If you want to start a business with a NEW skillset:

Your first priority is to learn the skill. 

If you want to start a business with an EXISTING skillset:

You need to have a clear idea of who you’re going to help. You need to be able to fill in the blanks in this statement:

I’m going to help _______ solve _______ with my skills.

  • Figure out who you’re going to serve. 
  • Create a product or service for them that solves their problem in the best way you know how.

I’m rooting for you friends!
