  • You should have already made the commitment to being, or learning how to become, an entrepreneur. You should be ready to take action towards making the transition from Employee to stand-alone Entrepreneur.

One of the hottest topics trending today is Entrepreneurship.  Unfortunately, however, what isn’t covered in the “glamour” of owning your own business are the details, planning and challenges that go into preparing for that transition — from Employee to Entrepreneur.

This workshop is meant for current Employees looking to transition into Entrepreneurship.  No prior experience with business or startups is required, but you should have made the commitment to explore this possible/next chapter of your Life.

This course clarifies preliminary aspects of business and concepts to think through, before taking the Entrepreneurial plunge in today’s world, such as:

  • Who are You in the field of Business
  • Begin with The End in Mind
  • Mitigate the Fear That’s Stifling Action
  • Resourceful versus Resources
  • Corporate/Business Setup (suggestions, not practicing Law)
  • The M(inimal) V(iable) P(roduct) and variations
  • Choosing Your (Exact) Customer
  • Before Going to Market
  • Build(ing) Your Team
  • Business & Company Development
  • Planning Team Development Strategy

With Resources in each module for you to complete, and scenarios to think through, you will walk away from this workshop with a defined idea and an initial business map to start where you are, towards where you desire to arrive.

“Just take the risk” used to be a popular phrase, but with today’s global marketplace and increased competition, perhaps implementing a few of these considerations could contribute to a more stable start for your business, and/or idea to flourish.

Who is the target audience?
  • This Intro to Entrepreneurship workshop is meant for current Employees looking to transition into Entrepreneurship. No prior business experience is necessary but this course can also assist you if you’re in the early stages of starting a business.
  • This course is probably not for you if you're looking for strategies to improve an existing business or product facing challenges.

In this module, we share details of what action to take now, to get
over the Fear that may be trying to overtake you.
