Are you looking for business hacks or marketing secrets to help you get-rich-quick in business? If so, you can STOP reading right now. This is NOT the course for you.
If however, you’d like to learn how to build a business for the long run, one that can support you for many years to come, you're definitely in the right place.
Hi, my name is Debbie LaChusa. I’ve been in business on my own since 1998.
In that time I’ve built three successful, six-figure businesses…
A virtual marketing agency
A coaching/consulting business
An online course business
To be successful in business long term, in today’s quickly changing world, you need to be nimble.
The odds the business you start today will be the same business you’ll be running 10 or 20 years from now are slim. There’s a better chance your business will evolve, pivot, and shift with the times. Or, at least in keeping with your interests.
After 20 years in business on my own, I’ve learned a few things about how to create, market, and grow a business.
I’ve also learned there’s a hard way to do it, and a much easier way.
And that easier way is what this course is all about.
In this course I’d like to teach you what it took me 10 years to finally realize.
I’d like to share with you what I call the X Factor in any successful business.
It’s what will help you build a business that’s true to your passions, provides you with a sense of purpose everyday, and turns a profit so you can support yourself and your family doing work that serves others and that you enjoy.
The type of business I’d like to teach you how to create is an Inspired Business.
While my experience is primarily with independent coaches, consultants, and online businesses, an Inspired Business can fit in any niche.
It’s not a type of business so much as a way of being in business.
Heck, I’d even go so far as to say it’s a way of being in life (and some pretty awesome and magical things happen when you choose to start living this way!)
This is not the type of business you’re going to learn how to build in business school.
However, even if you’ve been to business school (and I have!) what you learn in this course will complement that education and training.
Enroll today and you’ll learn:

What the Circle of Inspired Business is and how to use it as your roadmap
7 simple steps you can begin taking today to turn your existing business into an Inspired Business, or to create a brand new business
What an Inspiration Instigator is, and how to identify yours
The role Vision and Planning play in building an Inspired Business (and where they depart from the business school model)
The one key thing you MUST do that you’re probably not doing right now (it’s not hard but it will likely require some practice… it did for me)

Why this is also the best way to Find Your Purpose (or as I prefer to say, have your Purpose find you)
Why Profit should not be your first priority (even though it is critically important)

Recommended Resources I've used, and that you may find helpful as you begin following inspiration
- Independent coaches, consultants, and anyone else in a service-based business with the desire to make a difference in the world while making a living, doing work they love.
Please download, and ideally print out, the attached Ebook and Workbook. Read through it BEFORE watching the rest of the course videos. It introduces you to the concept of Inspiration that I'll be teaching you in this course and will get you ready to dive into the 7 Steps.
In this ebook, you'll also find the Workbook pages for this course, with space for you to create your Inspired Business Plan.
I highly recommend you take a break after each of the 7 step video lessons and complete the corresponding page in the workbook.
On the attached PDF, you'll find a few resources I think you may find helpful as you step onto the Inspired Path. Please note, I do not receive any compensation from these. They are simply tools I use to help me Live and Work Inspired, so I'm sharing them with you in case you may find them helpful as well.
