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!
