A huge part of the reason we hope you’ve enrolled in the small business plan building workshop is to be able to live a better life.  Part of that includes improving your material comforts and being able to provide a better life for your family.  Please do NOT make the mistake of showing-up with a plan to live the same life you are currently living, unless you are happy with all the material things in your life.  Instead please invest some time to:

A. Figure out how much it cost to live the way you are currently living; and

B. Figure out how you want to be living 24 months from now (what house, what car, what school, what kind of vacations, etc).:  and then

C.  Figure out how much it will cost to live the way you want to be living.
