88: What Do You Need to Start Your Business Today?
Today on the RISE Podcast I’m giving you another peek inside my monthly coaching series. This excerpt comes from the 2-hour business coaching class, and in it I talk about what you really need to get started on your dream. So many first-time (and second-time and even sixth-time) business owners assume they need way more than they actually do to start their business right away, and that ends in something I’ve seen way too many times; talented, promising businesses going into debt immediately, or even worse, not starting at all. To avoid that heartbreak, I spent some time detailing exactly what you ACTUALLY need to get yourself into business right now. If you enjoyed this clip, it’s just a small sliver of the 2 hours of live teaching I do every month for business coaching and the 2 hours I do for life coaching. Life coaching is for those looking to improve in their relationships, health, and personal life, and business coaching is for those looking to grow a revenue base, find new clients, and market effectively.

If that wasn’t enough, Nick is one of four people alive with a rare genetic condition called Hanhart Syndrome, and was born without legs and with one arm. But since birth, Nick has never let that, or anything else get in his way. He’s one of the most inspiring people on the planet, and I’m so excited to let him tell his story to you.
