I am here to support you through the process and help you turn your business launch into a simple step by step procedure.

Follow your dream
Don't let the fear of failure stop you from following your dream... but do let it help you! 50% of businesses that failed were actually profitable. It wasn't that the idea didn't work, it was that the idea wasn't cultivated. If you start your business the right way, you're chances of success is going to increase ten fold. This is easier said than done.
Starting a business the right way is time consuming and if you currently have commitments of children, full-time work or study, it is even harder. But that is where I come in, I'm here to cultivate your business idea into an actionable plan so you can launch with confidence.

I'll help you stay out of the statistics
I can handle research for your business, whether that be the industry, regulations, competition, sales processes and more.
If you are seeking funding, a well thought out business plan is vital. That is easy to see from a quick google search. But what if you don't need funding? A business plan is still important and if done the right way, can help structure your business and its launch. A business plan shouldn't be something that is completed and then pushed aside, never to be looked at again. It should be a tool you use everyday for your business.
