"Where do I Start?"
This is the question I always get.
“I have my idea, but. I don’t know what to do next.”
Let this page be an example of how layered the answer to this question really is. Throughout the site there are tons of resources and information for you to utilize, and here I’ve compiled your beginning steps. There is no one size fits all answer, you can’t skip steps, and you can’t avoid the work.
The good news is (I’ll go out on a limb and assume), if you are here, you are ready to show up and show out — and for that I’m here to support you.
How to Use This Page:
Like Nike, just do it. It’s up to you, start from top to bottom or hop around. Whatever activity you choose commit to seeing it through. Aspire Business is about information and action. You can’t read your why into being a ::successful:: entrepreneur. You have to take massive action, so let’s get to it!
Note: This page is updated often as new resources pop up on the site — so book mark it and check back often.
