Not thrilled with your business results to date? Wondering how you can go from zero to small business hero in 90 days  when the majority of online businesses fail in 4 months or less?

When the pressure is on, you don’t rise to the occasion — you fall to your highest level of preparation.

As business owners, we are all on journeys of transformation and can serve as catalysts and role models for others on similar paths.

In pursuing our personal journeys, we quickly learn transformation is not achieved without also experiencing some discomfort, disappointment, and even real pain. That is what serves our growth and prepares us for becoming stronger mentally so we can emerge unstoppable, unshakeable, unstuck, and more.

Did you know only 20% of aspiring entrepreneurs actually take action toward achieving their business dreams while the rest talk on and on but do nothing to make them happen? Or that it’s been reported just 1% of those who do take action experience success?

Be honest. Are you happy working as hard as you are while not getting ahead as fast as you’d like?

Helping you better understand what needs to be done, when (and how) to move your business forward is just one aspect of what we do in SMARTSTART. And, there are several key differences that separate our high-achieving members from other entrepreneurs.

For example, they:

  1. Are highly self-aware or are working on becoming more so.
  2. Refuse to compromise their core values and are true to themselves.
  3. Hold a powerful vision and have a purpose-driven mission.
  4. Target a specific market, effectively communicate their marketing message, and make offer(s) that fit their core values.
  5. Serve that market with excellence, not ego.
  6. Develop powerful success habits, self-discipline, and master the biology and chemistry of success.
  7. Take small daily actions that move them toward achieving their goals and accept full responsibility for their results.
  8. Are patient with themselves and generous in supporting the great work of others, including competitors.
  9. Are committed to investing in their self-development, education, and continuous improvement.

You might just be getting started in any (or all) of these areas. And, consequently, might find yourself struggling or unclear about what’s ahead and how to best go about making your business dreams reality. That’s perfectly ok! In fact, it makes you a great candidate for our latest programs.
