Business Set-Up Essentials
The essential elements you should know when setting up your business.
I know you’re juggling a lot. So let me help you out by giving you a simple checklist that will kickstart things off on the right foot and use your time efficiently!
Everything we cover in the Business Set-up Essentials is truly essential to starting your online business endeavors. I especially implore you to dive into legal contracts and online payments and e-signing software. Our mini business plan outline also defies the idea of a 30 page business plan and instead shrinks it down into actionable steps to take now. Much more manageable.
In this WFH Playbook: Business Set-up Essentials course, we will:
- Establish your intentions
- Set benchmark goals
- Create your mini business plan
- Create legal contracts (I have comprehensive legal clauses included from my attorney)
- Set up invoicing software and electronic payment systems
- Set up e-signing software
- Find a physical location (I’ll explain why, it’s not what you think!)
- Recommended Resources
This will be a solid crash course on getting the skeleton of your business up and running so you have a strong foundation to build out the rest of the fun stuff! You’ll have lifetime access to this content, but let’s get this show on the road, am I right!?
