DIY Live

Do you have an Amazing Business Idea, but have no idea how to get started?

Building a business from scratch can be a tough thing to do…especially by yourself! You want to make sure your business is protected, and set-up properly so you don’t have any legal or tax issues, but you also want to make sure you are not spending all of your hard-earned cash to do it!
It’s hard to know which professionals to splurge on, and which to save on. What things can you do on your own without someone’s help? Is it important to create an entity, or can you act as a Sole Proprietor for a while?
If you’ve been asking these questions, then you’re in the right place!

Exactly what kind of help will I get?

Each day, we’ll cover something a little bit different. We want to make sure that you have all of the tools you need to walk out of this program and start running your business. But that means covering a LOT of information in a short amount of time.

So, each day, we will cover one topic. There will be 2-3 DIY sessions where we work with you to physically create something – from an LLC to a Business Bank Account to your Business’ Social Media pages, and more.

Then, after those DIY sessions, we will have 2-3 more sessions that are more informational. We’ll provide you with the information you need now so you can apply it to your business later, such as how to set yourself up for retirement as a small business owner.

How much experience does each of your speakers have?

Each of our speakers is an expert in their chosen field. While each speaker has a different amount of experience, each has had a minimum of 3 years of experience in the field they are representing. Many of our speakers are business owners themselves and are able to bring a unique perspective that will be applicable to your new life as a small business owner.

I have made one exception to this rule because this person is fairly new to owning a business. I believe this person will bring a great perspective to making the shift to CEO because it has not been very long since she has been in your position.

Do you offer any financing options or payment plans?

Yes! In order to make our program as affordable and as accessible as possible, we can offer financing through Affirm, with monthly payments starting as low as $153 per month. If you’d like to take advantage of this option, please complete an application here. You’ll immediately be notified of your acceptance and payment options.

Are there any other fees that aren’t included in my attendance fee?

All of the fees for the professional assistance and instruction are included in your attendance fee. However, there are a few things we could not include for various reasons:

  • Your LLC Set-up Fee: This is different for each state. You will be responsible for this additional fee. It ranges from $40 to $520 (one-time fee).
  • Your Initial Bank Deposit: Each bank is a little different and requires a different fee to open a checking account. You will be responsible for this initial deposit.
  • Your Accounting Software Fee: This will be a monthly recurring fee that you’ll need to pay each month. While we are able to provide a free 30-day trial, after that period, you’ll be responsible for payments.
  • Your Email Subscription: This will vary depending upon the platform you use, as well as the type of account. For example, Gmail has a free personal version, but also has a professional version that is paid.

What if I don’t need everything that’s included?

We can offer you a discounted rate to attend only specific sessions. Please, connect with us via email to confirm which sessions you are interested in attending for more information.

As a Bonus, just for starting your business with us…

I’d also like to throw in 3 months of access to my Small Business Roundtable! I’m also going to send you a copy of my Small Business Owner planner. These two items are valued at $500, and I’m going to give them to you for FREE just for taking the leap with us today!

Join other small business owners just like you as we walk and talk through the challenges we face on a day-to-day basis! This community is a safe space where you can connect with other small business owners who have been where you are, and who are willing and able to help guide you along the way.

You do not have to walk this small business journey alone. We are here to provide you with the resources you need to get started and stay motivated throughout the process.

I hope to see you on the inside!
