I had so many questions and fears about moving forward with my business idea.  I wasn't sure if I should pursue it or not.  Jodi guided me through the critical business issues and she opened my eyes to some of the risks I needed to be aware.  Even better, she helped me uncover some potential sales options that I had never even considered before!  This changed my whole outlook on the business and how I should proceed.  This course is a MUST for anyone who has questions about her business idea.

It's time to Vet Your Idea if any of these scenarios ring true for you:

  • You have an idea and you can't get it out of your mind
  • You're sooooo ready to be your own boss
  • You want a side hustle
  • You're stagnating in your current position
  • You need to have more answers in order to move forward
  • The thought of being in the same rut in 12 months is unbearable
  • You know the time is ripe, now what?
  • You'll be ready to move forward or decide once you work through all the details
  • You're worried you may have overlooked something
  • You need help in assessing risk
  • You're ready to invest in yourself
     

Doing the due diligence will get you to the right answer.

You've Got This.

How do I know this to be true?  Because I will walk you through the vetting process.  I've helped hundreds of entrepreneurs - new and seasoned - figure it out.  I know what you must do to work through that idea.  

The last thing I want you to do is to take the leap and start a new business without working through all the ups, the downs, the risks and the opportunities.  I've seen it many times and trust me, it can be a painful and EXPENSIVE experience. 

 

It is my mission to help you pursue your passions and reward yourself using your skills, talents, and your gifts.  But it is heartbreaking when I see someone start a business without knowing if she can make money or if she will even enjoy owning and operating her business.  I will walk you through this due diligence process so you don't prematurely go down that dangerous path.

I created this course to help you work through all the details you need to consider.   Right now is a fantastic time to think about starting a business.  This course will take you through all those critical points you must work through to know if you're ready, to know if your idea is viable, and to know if you can make money at it.  You are here because you're ready to be in control of your future. 

 

Let's get started!
