Micro Business School - What Do You Do?

Introducing: The thinkVAULT Micro Business School. 
As I look back on the many challenges that my clients, and I, have faced, a recurring theme emerged. We have all wished, at some point, for someone to take us by the hand and say, "Here's what you need to do." Or at least: "Here's what I did about that."

So, in the interest of living up to my original vision:

A profitable, viable, solidly planned, and well-organized business for everyone who has a genuine passion for building one.

...let the "hand holding" begin.

Who is this for?
The focus is women starting or growing a micro business. Typically those who have:
  1. Never owned a business before.
  2. An urgent need to bring in income. 
    • Downsized, laid off, employer out of business.
    • Head of your household, primary breadwinner.
  3. A belief that all economic conditions present opportunities.
If you see yourself described in the list above -- regardless of your gender -- thinkVAULT can help you with starting and growing your business. You know for sure that you don't have time to "attend the School of Hard Knocks." That is a long and painful road to take... Neither do you wish to "fly by the seat of your pants." That stopped working, well before the 20th century ended. The world and business move too fast...  

If you want to save yourself a lot of time, and money, come along on this journey with us.  
If you have a pressing concern or burning issue, send an e-mail or leave a comment below. 

Step One: Choose something to do.

Make TWO lists, on two separate sheets of paper (or in two different files, if you're using Word):
  1. Things you're good at doing. 
    • Remember, you need to start making money. What are you really good at doing, RIGHT NOW?
    • Litmus test: Would three other people who know you -- and will tell you truth -- also say you're good at these things? 
    • Sit your list aside or close the file. NO cheating on part 2, below!
  2. Things you would pay someone else to do. You will only be able to sell what you believe to be of value.
See which skills appear on both lists. Rank your top three. If you need a tie breaker, which one would you wake up and do at 4:00 a.m. and keep doing until midnight? 

Step Two: Can you make enough money at your number one choice. And just how much is that? Check the next blog entry; this post will be updated, once it's "live" for reading.

E-mail us if you have a question about how to choose YOUR something.
