You are a maker who had a crazy idea to turn your passion into a business. A true entrepreneur is more than just a maker. They are also a manager and a CEO with a vision for the company.
Can you relate?
You are paralyzed with indecision and just keep asking others and doing more research on the "right" way because you are afraid you will make the wrong decision and fail.
You are starting to wonder if this business is just an expensive hobby...when will it actually make a profit or pay you a salary?
Your business is consuming you. It's all you think about and do. When you are with your family or just doing nothing, you feel guilty for not working.
You have a partner in the business and you are both doing and re-doing the same things. Decisions don't get made and roles aren't clear, so there is tension and wasted time.
You tried hiring or outsourcing to relieve some of the workload, but it didn't go so well. You fired everyone and took it all back because you are the only one who can do it right.
You started this business for fun, freedom and to make a contribution that helped people. Instead you wear all the hats and are pulled in a million directions leaving you exhausted and overwhelmed.
You are starting to resent the business and maybe even the product. You are chained to the business with no sign of relief in sight.
You keep adding new offerings hoping that new products will be the golden ticket to the business finally working and making money.
You have a big goal for the business this year - to replace your j-o-b salary, to be in X number of stores, to finally allow you to take a vacation that it pays for itself from the business - but you aren't sure how to create this.
You are putting out one fire 🔥 after the next with quality, shipping, sales, sourcing, contracts and employees and nothing seems to get better. You are wondering if this is worth the headache.
The business and your mind just feel out of control and you know something has to change.
Just because you make a great product, doesn't mean you know how to run a profitable, fun, sustainable and enduring business. Most entrepreneurs DON'T. Let's change that.
If you are ready to finally work ON your business instead of IN your business and get the expertise, accountability and support to learn the skills of running a business, I got you.
Conquer the chaos. Create systems that give you confidence, calm and cash. It's time to step into the CEO role of your business.
Over 3 months these are the results you will create if you show up and follow through on the work:
See the full curriculum under the pricing section of this website below.
There are times to figure it out all your self and there are times to make an investment in the future of your business and get outside expert help.
This is a mindset program because you can have an amazing product, all the money and time and still not be successful because of you limiting beliefs about what's possible for you.
AND this is a tactical, strategic and DOING the work program. You will learn how to manage your finances and run the books. You will create processes, systems and do the foundational work of a real business.
No more playing "entrepreneur". You are going to become one.
There is no time to waste - 40% of businesses fail in the first year and 80% of businesses fail by year five. And the suffering can be intense before the decision to close. This doesn't have to be your story!
You know in your gut if this is something you MUST do. Own it, make a decision and take action now.
If you have been in business for at least three months with sales and are experiencing any of the symptoms above, Master Your Business is the cure.
We use the 10X is Easier Than 2X book as a model for creating more in your business with less work. I was inspired to create this program after reading the book The E-Myth by Michael Gerber. It was the aha that clarified why some brands I worked with succeeded and why many didn't get much traction.
This is not an inclusive list as I tailor the curriculum to the current cohort, but this will give you an idea of what we cover over 12 weeks and the work you will do in your business. If you have more questions, email me at [email protected].
