This course is part of the Millionaire’s Roadmap series. It will teach you how to hack your business initial cash-flow, growth, and customer acquisition by the truckloads, empowering you to build a business faster, more effectively and with a much higher chance of selling it at a high price (if you desire to do so)
Whether you're an entrepreneur, a professional, an existing business owner or simply thinking on starting a new business, you are forced to grapple with an every-increasing amount of competition and technology transformation. In fact, according to the SBA 2/3 of US businesses quietly cease to exist before they reach 10 years of existence. This means that most small businesses generate cash-flow for an owner and his or her family for some period of years and then quietly close.
Anyone can build and grow a successful business
This course is about improving your chances of building and growing a profitable and successful business faster and effectively. We go far beyond the kinds of "business ideas" (or “how to” gurus) you may have been exposed to, by diving into an actual real live case study that shows in real time the progress of going from absolutely $0 to $1M.
This specific course of the Millionaire Roadmap series, gives you step-by-step instructions on how to find an idea and validate it to build a million dollar business without having to guess. It takes the wishful thinking out of the process. It also answers once central question, and that is ..."would there be at least a million dollars’ worth of customers if I start my business today?"
In the Millionaire’s Roadmap series, you'll learn how to bring your initial cash-flow; massively grow your customer acquisition; run ads as close to zero cost to you as possible; upsell, down-sells, cross-sells and increase customer value in a whole new way - a faster, better way.
The core of this Business Ideas course teaches you how to:
How I'll teach you to growth hack your business from $0 to $1M
The sad irony is that in order to build a successful business in the past, you had to have lots of money, borrow heavily or have access to investors. Or, you had to invest hundreds of dollars and hours attending an MBA program to understand all the moving parts of running a business, or wing it trying to figure out how to make your business successful. I spent 18 years of my life doing exactly that.
Fortunately, I already made all the mistakes. I have two master’s degrees, one in Business and one in Finance. I have built a business from scratch. That is correct, I started my first business from my bedroom. My kitchen table was my "telemarketing department” and my closet was my “support department.” I grew this business to be the top 10 in the country in my industry. I used it as my guinea pig to see what worked and what didn’t ... and boy, do I have the scars to show you what didn’t work!
I've designed a course based heavily on a real business I am building as we speak. One thing I noticed about “gurus” is that they all show you the “how” but none of them show you a live case study. Anyone can teach you the how, all you have to do is read a couple of books and regurgitate the information. Showing you the “how” LIVE is an entirely different story. You see the good, the bad and the ugly. You learn how to iterate or pivot. You have something to emulate without taking massive risks or trying to figure out the next steps on your own.
This 7-section course does not contain any flashy graphics or fancy videos. It shows simple screenshots or screencasts of the case study as we progress; presented in video-lectures and a great deal of worksheets and exercises. The course will require that you implement and follow through with each course in the Millionaire’s Series if you want to build a million dollar business. It won't be easy - but if you put in the work, you will massively increase your chances of success.
In addition to the lectures, there is an additional 4-set sales funnel, worth over $1,000 each. You can access them from the bonus section. These are ready to be implemented for complete holiday sales campaigns. All you have to do is tweak the text, links and images/videos and you are good to go. In future courses, I will teach you how to run these sales campaigns.

Disruption is all around us. The well informed and well prepared, don't view innovation as a threat; they see it as an opportunity. In this lesson, you will learn why the time to act is now!
This is the exact roadmap we will follow to go from $0 to $1M. And, if you are a business struggling to grow, you will follow the exact same path.
This is the second course in the series. It is the most important course of the series. Do not skip this course. If you get this part wrong, everything else you do from here on will be nothing but a struggle. Not going through this process, is probably, the main reason why most businesses fail.

Business and Travel
I have lived and worked in Singapore, Bolivia and the U.S. For the past 18 years I have managed and operated my own eBusiness. The first ten as a brick-and-mortar and the last eight, as a fully cloud-based online business. Before selling it, this eBusiness was my real-working lab where I tested and applied all my strategic business theories. All my knowledge and experience now gets applied to Digital Marketing and Growth Hacking.
As a digital marketer and business owner, I spend most of my time learning and applying strategies on how to grow a business so I can sell it at a profit. I share everything I learned over the past 18+ years in my online courses.
Since my target market are B2B middle market companies, I am not able to share my results on any of my courses due to non-disclosure constraints. To overcome this challenge, I built SovereignWomen [dot] net as a real-live Case Study for all my online courses. Everything I teach is first applied in real life, and then I build a course using the real outcome and data:
My first course "The COMPLETE Business Ideas Blueprint for Startups!" is the actual research and validation I did for SovereignWomen [dot] net PRIOR to starting that business, buying the domain or even coming up with the name. This course goes in depth on how to see if you have a potential winner before you spend time or money building a business. So if you want to know the REAL numbers behind SovereignWomen [dot] net all you have to do is take this course and apply the same techniques to any potential business idea you may have in order to mitigate risk of failure.
My second course "The COMPLETE Digital Marketing and Sales Funnel Blueprint!" is the actual digital marketing blueprint I use for my clients. It is also the exact blueprint I used to develop SovereignWomen [dot] net. If you want to learn how to build an online business, your best bet is to take this course first. You will understand how to strategically structure your marketing campaigns before spending a penny on wasted ads or promotions. I built this course to validate my idea in the first course Business Ideas. In other words, the first course (Business Ideas) gave me the numbers I needed to find out if my idea was viable and the second course (Digital Marketing) confirmed that people were willing to buy what I had to sell.
My third course "The COMPLETE Business Development For Startups & Small Biz" is the exact methodology I use to build alliances and partnerships. When you go to SovereignWomen [dot] net, you see a coherent site where you can find everything you need to learn, plan, launch and manage your marketing campaigns. What you do not see, are the numerous ventures, partnerships and alliances silently performing on the back-end. This third course shows you how to approach potential partners and alliances to grow your business fast and is based on the exact same methods I use when building partnerships.
So as you can see, I actually do what I teach. The reason sometimes it takes me a long time to launch a course, is because I am waiting for data and results before I share them with you. I have made huge mistakes in my business life that have cost me dearly. I know that if I approach my courses this way, I can have the peace of mind, that what I am showing you is real, that it works, that it can help you...while minimizing any potential business risk if applied properly.
To your success!
