I want to share something with you. Starting my own business was scary — REALLY scary (but also exciting)!! When I decided to leave my legal career behind and start my first business 12 years ago, all I had was an idea (or several all at once, but was unsure where to start), and a load of self-determination to actually try being a business owner.

The hard truth is… Many new business owners experience some, or ALL, of the following entrepreneurial fears:

  • “I have an idea but don’t know where to start”, or
  • “How do I even set up a proper/legal business structure?” or
  • “I’ve started my business but I’m spinning my wheels, feel frustrated and I’m losing money… I need to get a ‘real’ job…” or
  • “You know what… this is just too much for me, I’m not cut out to be my own boss.”

dream_businessWell, I’m happy to tell you: First, you’re not alone, and second, you can absolutely be successful as an entrepreneur with the right business guidance, information, planning, support and mindset. With expert support and training, you can create the success you envision and so much more.

What has always been heartbreaking for me is to watch how many fellow entrepreneurs give up too soon because they never find the solid information, training and support they need to succeed at an affordable level.

That’s why I’ve created the Successfully Self-Employed Semester. It is a teleclass-based training program starting on September 30th for newer business owners, anyone that is serious about starting a new business, or someone that’s been in business for years but needs to go back to basics.

Topics include: business identity and branding, legal structure and issues, marketing, networking and public relations, sales, pricing and money issues, and operations. It’s a powerful program offered at a fraction of the cost of doing private business coaching with me.

Here’s an overview of the program details:

checkbox Dates: Tuesday evenings, September 30th – December 9th
checkbox Time: 4:00-5:30 pm Pacific/ 5:00-6:30 pm Mountain/ 6:00-7:30 pm Central/ 7:00-8:30 pm Eastern
checkbox Length of Program: The program extends over ten weeks allowing you time to learn, engage the materials, implement, test out your knowledge, and make your learning last far beyond the end of the semester.
checkbox Includes: Master Classes, MP3 recordings of all calls, handouts/checklists/templates, a private Facebook group for all of us to communicate, plus two bonus audio programs as soon as you register to get you started and motivated!
checkbox Topics covered: Business ownership, business identity and branding, legal issues, marketing, networking and public relations, the sales process, pricing/packages and money issues, and business operations.
checkbox Flexibility & Accessibility: The program is offered entirely via phone and the internet, so no matter where you live this program is flexible and accessible to you! Plus, if you can’t make a live class, you can always listen to the MP3 recording, which will be posted the day after every class/call.
checkbox Affordability: Many newer business owners need help in the first few years, but can’t afford to get it. I’ve kept the program affordable so that you can get access to the help you need and crave. Offering this program in a group setting, and using technology to deliver it, is what allows me to keep the price at this level.
checkbox Investment: Early Bird Special = $697 if you register by September 23rd (with a 2-pay option of $360 in two equal installments if you need to space the investment out)

This program is strategically designed to help entrepreneurs with foundational business skills to build your confidence, structure, operations and effectiveness as a business owner. Come join me for the Successfully Self Employed Semester!

Hope to welcome you to “campus” when we start on September 30th!
