No matter where you are in your bootstrap startup journey, we have a range of Startup High Intensity Training (S.H.I.T) to help you. Choose the SHIT you need from the list below, but we see all 7 courses as critical for the bootstrap startup process if you are starting from scratch.
You can buy individual workshops, and select the number of workshops you want to pay for to create your own program. We’ll email you so you can tell us which courses you want access to on our membership site if you want to complete them online, and tell you when we have face-to-face workshops scheduled if you would like to attend them.
We have also put together workshop packages for people who are at different stages of their business startup journey. This includes existing business owners who may just want a health check before investing in scaling up and growing their current business or creating extra revenue streams.
1. BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE, GREAT ALREADY (BIGA)
Our BIGA-SHIT course is about skills recognition, and work out if you have the skills you need to do what you love, and earn an income out of it in a competitive marketplace. If you don’t have it now, that’s ok. our HOT-SHIT course will help you fill in the gaps.
This course is available for free as an introductory offer for anyone that joins our member’s site HERE.
2. HELP OVERCOMING TROUBLE (HOT)
No Small Business can go it alone, even if you are a Solopreneur. What would your rather double, $10 or $50? Following on from our BIGA-SHIT course, this HOT-SHIT course teaches you how to increase your earning capacity by doing what you are great at.
We’ll show you how to overcome your weaknesses through collaborations with others in your business network. Find people who do for love the things you hate.
3. UNDERSTANDING PURCHASERS (UP)
When you understand where potential customers are in the decision-making process, you can meet purchaser needs all the way from tyre kickers to raving fans and repeat business.
4. 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 walk through it.
5. DEPRESSED, INSECURE, AND PRECIOUS (DIP)

This workshop requires a high degree of self-awareness and can be quite confronting if you are entering the program at this workshop with an existing business. Tools and techniques used in this workshop are covered in more detail in workshops 3 and 4 above, so we recommend doing the other 2 workshops first to get the most out of your face-to-face time here.

This course gives you the tools and techniques to apply what you learned in our BIGA-SHIT and HOT-SHIT courses, turning attacks into an opportunity to show off your expertise.
