We have a lot of Businesses that have been running for around 3 years that are looking to grow their business but are worried if they are ready and want to do our startup program as a health check. Well, we can save you money right now. That’s not who our Bootstrap Startup Program is for. What you need… is a health check. So…
This program is for you!
It is for existing business owners who just want a health check. We understand you are concerned, 4 out of the 5 businesses that survived for 3 years failed during this scale-up period. That is a higher failure rate than, more than double, the percentage of businesses that fail in their first year.
Speaking to the 5% of businesses that last more than 5 years, going back to basics after 3 years and learning from your experience is the most common advice you will get if you want to be part of the 5%.
We take you through the last step of the startup process #7 – SYSTEMATIC TESTING OF PROBLEMS (STOP)
Then go back to #4 – MAKE OPPORTUNITIES VIABLE ENTERPRISES (MOVE) so you walk away with a plan to grow that doesn’t cost you thousands of bucks.
But we don’t do that for free, as we will likely refer you to someone in our Inception Network of experts that can help you implement the strategy in the next 3 months that you will walk away with when you talk to us.
As an example of what our business and marketing experts see regularly, if you are going to spend $5000 on a new website or “re-branding”, a suitable return on that investment would be an extra $50,000 in sales. If you can’t 10x your business investments by now, you have bigger problems than how you look.
We have the difficult conversations you need all the time with Startups and are well-practised at using empathy. Shameless plug: if you want to learn how to use empathy to get sales, after this health check we may suggest you do workshop #3 in our 7-step Bootstrap startup process – #3. UNDERSTANDING PURCHASERS (UP).
See how this works, yet?
We can keep going on, and on, and on, but if you buy a health check now we’ll call you as it’s much quicker and you may not have time to waste.
If you are just looking for “validation” of your business idea, that’s OK. But Radical Candor helps more businesses survive that ruinous empathy (AKA, warm hugs from Mum). There are plenty of people out there that can do that, but that’s not what we do.
We look at the facts and use critical thinking tools, not just say “well, I think you should do…”. And do you think someone with the poo emoji in their logo is going to judge you?
Here is the legal stuff, what you are paying for. There is no upsell, you do all the work in the courses. If you want help to MOVE-SHIT, that’s another conversation. It’s not included in this health check, and we may not be the best people to do that with you, too.
We will give you that advice, for free, at the end if you are looking for some kind of guarantee.
SYSTEMATIC TESTING OF PROBLEMS (STOP)
This STOP-SHIT workshop applies Jobs to be done and disruptive innovation theories, as a practical analysis of your business model canvas to focus your activities only on what works. We also use formal skills recognition tools to make sure you focus on your strengths.
MAKE OPPORTUNITIES VIABLE ENTERPRISES (MOVE)
All you need is a passion for something, and this is the stage before startup known as business inception. The Bootstrap Startup program is part of the Inception Network, so think of this as the cross-over course unplugging you from the matrix.
We can only show you the door. You still have to want to walk through it.
And, of course, we have a follow-up program to help with that, if you still need it. We hope you found people to help with that in our HOT course, and happy to chat if that didn’t work for you.
