  Getting Started

The After 5 Startup eCourse is your action plan to jump-starting or redeveloping your business idea. We all need a little motivation or accountability to make sure we are working towards our goals. I created the After 5 Startup eCourse because I struggled in the beginning of my journey of entrepreneurship. I am successful today because business mentors and friends gave me guidance and examples of what steps it took to become a successful entrepreneur.

After many years of working one on one with my clients, I realized that there are basic foundation steps that every business owner must complete. No matter what industry you are in these basic steps can help you develop a strong and successful business. This eCourse is an example of all the things I have used and helped my clients with over the years.

Unfortunately, I can give you all the tools but there is no magic formula to success as a business owner. (Believe me I am still searching for it) Many of you will take this information, complete the plan and stick it somewhere on your shelf. I encourage you to not just complete the assignments but to push yourself beyond your “self-created" limits and work hard toward your goals. Remember I am here with you as you complete the course. Office hours are available as well as opportunities to schedule time with me if needed.
