Got a business idea?


Make it a success before you even get started.

Before you even take one step towards starting your business you need to validate your idea. You need to know ASAP 'will it succeed or not?' Proper validation is the difference between having a successful business and disaster. It's that simple. If you don't have a product or service that you absolutely KNOW will succeed then you could be wasting your time, money and energy.

Benefits of validating a business idea:

  • Make sure that you are entering a market that people will actually pay for your goods and services.
  • Make sure people are willing to pay enough for it to be profitable.
  • Massively reduce risk of failure.
  • Pinpoint possible opportunities.

What's covered in this course?

  • 1)Validating a service through giving a lecture/talk.
  • We walk you through how this unique technique will help you:
  • Gauge interest in your services.
  • Gain possible clients.
  • Get ideas for services from the attendees themselves.
  • Start earning income immediately with very little investment
  • 2)Validating a product.
  • We look into methods for checking if a product will sell or not. These include:
  • Pre-selling without an actual product produced.
  • Extensive research of market.
  • Having samples manufactured.
  • 3)Researching the competition.
  • Discover whether others are having success in your target market.
  • Find out what is working and not working.
  • Identify any areas of opportunity.

Why take this course? I know that you are excited to get started with your business idea and just want to get stuck in. I absolutely agree that you can research until you are blue in the face. In fact sometimes too much research can damage your enthusiasm and momentum. You need to get started….. That is the beauty of this course, you get to validate your business idea while making money from day one. That is the whole thinking behind this course. Until you get someone to actually hand over money for your product or service then you don't actually have a viable business. So the whole validation process is about speeding up the process and making money immediately. Stop wondering if it will work and come and find out today.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone considering starting a business.
  • Anyone who is struggling to come up with a profitable business idea.
  • Entrepreneurs who are unsure whether their current idea will be profitable.

Bestselling author and Kindle All-star.

After years of travelling and living abroad (mostly teaching), I finally decided to settle down and get a 'real job'. Thankfully that didn't last long. Eventually I discovered that if I combined my skill of 'teaching' with my passion for 'learning' I could turn it into a business. I have since published 15 non-fiction educational books (under various pen names) and am now a bestselling author and Kindle All-Star. In addition to writing I also run Actual Books LTD where we help authors produce very high quality self published paperback books available to bookstores worldwide.

I absolutely love entrepreneurialism . For years I couldn't work out 'what I wanted to do' and 'why can't I settle into a 9-5 job?'. For me being an entrepreneur fixed all of that, finally I could pursue my passions and still make money doing it.

Due to my entrepreneurial tendencies and my years of teaching experience I now produce clear and concise courses that will help you get ahead and fulfill your goals.

Good luck and keep learning.
