Business Tools And Plans

60% of new businesses have failed by their third year. Let’s give you every advantage so you become a success story and not a statistic.


We’ve created a number of resources to make starting a new home-based business easier.

And while “easier” is nice, it’s more important that these tools will save you valuable time and help you avoid costly mistakes as a first-time business owner.

Many of these resources are free, while others do cost a few bucks. In all cases, I expect that the hours you save and the mistakes you might avoid will make using these resources a no-brainer.


P.S. If you are looking for help with something that I haven’t finished yet, please drop me an email and let me know what I should be working on for you.

Video Consultation – $50 to $200

I want to be very transparent. I’m so busy nowadays that I do not offer live consultations and very few pre-recorded video consultations. However, sometimes a story and a question pique my curiosity at the same time that I have a few minutes to record a video. When that happens, I’ll answer your questions via a recorded video.

If you are interested in telling me your story and asking your questions, fill out the pre-consultation form and I’ll read it when I get a few moments.

Regardless, you’ll hear from me personally via email and if I have time to answer your questions in detail we’ll agree to a price via those emails. Deal?
