How To Start Your Business In Less Than An Hour

Have you ever wanted to start a business but the mere thought of it is overwhelming? You don't know where to start and you are unsure of how much money it will cost. Furthermore, as you scroll through social media pages, the entrepreneurs you see are so ahead of where you are and you're unsure of how you would fit into the marketplace. You may even wonder if it is worth it to start you business, especially when you see countless others doing the same concept. "What would make yours so different?"

Well, starting a business does not have to be overwhelming. I'll walk you through the steps to have your business up and running....NOW.

1. Purchase a domain name.

2. Register your business with your state and decide on the corporate structure.

3. Create at least one social media page that you can manage (FB, Instagram, Twitter).

4. Start a website with a user friendly template like Squarespace or Weebly

5. Tell at least one person about your business. This will bring a level of accountability.

Congratulations! You're in business!

This is a simple strategy just to get you started. Of course, as you grow into your business, you will expand your offerings and business model. However, I find that the hardest part of starting a business is to actually start the business. The second hardest part is to stay the course even when no one is around cheering you on during the early stage.

But, let's first focus on starting then you will figure out what you need to do from that point on.
