New DIY Program for Start Up Entrepreneurs

April 5th, 2014 · 7 Comments

One thing most start up entrepreneurs have in common….they have no money.   The have a great, million dollar idea, but don’t have the knowledge, resources or experience to launch the company, build a team, take a product to market, attract capital, and reach the end goal of successfully creating wealth for themselves and their investors.    Many entrepreneurs can learn most of the fundamentals when the enter into a university that has an “entrepreneurship” program as part of their business school.   But if you can’t or don’t want to spend 2-3 years and hundreds of thousands of dollars going to college to be an entrepreneur…And you don’t have thousands to spend on consultants to help you and guide you….what is an inspired entrepreneur to do?

Us the 1-10-100 plan.    Below is a 10 minute video broken into two part that provides a high level overview of the 1-10-100 plan.   Below that is a link to the hour long podcast on the topic that was recently recorded from the Compassionate Capitalist Radio show. The basic idea behind the 1-10-100 plan is if you are serious about learning how to successfully launch and build a multi-million dollar business, and really don’t have any money to invest in your success, you can at a minimum do this:

1 Year
10 hours a week
$100 budget a month

Commit to a year of having the discipline to spend 10 hours a week reading, watching educational videos and webinars, and attending seminars and networking events.  Budget $100 a month to pay for some of the educational materials and to attend events or join specific organizations.   In the videos and podcast, Karen Rands goes through a step by step process of where to find free content and where to find useful seminars and meetings to participate in.  She also covers how to budget the $100 a month and the 10 hours a week to accomplish a specific goal.   At the end of the year, you will have gained the knowledge necessary to know what needs to be done, confidence to meet with investors and gain their confidence, and the skills to build a quality team that will help you execute your fully developed business plan.

    I’m one of those entrepreneurs that has an idea that will make gazillions but now money to really get it going. This program looks like a lot of hard work on my part, but guess that is the price you have to pay if you don’t have the cash to hire the folks to do things for you. Thanks for breaking it down so I can make my dream come true by investing my time in ME and my DREAM

    Why is it that entrepreneurs want the easy way out when it comes to the hard work of building a busienss. Don’t be an entrepreneur if you can’t put the time, energy in to doing it right. You just mess it up for the rest of us.

    just amazing. So many people want to just take your money and then there is the other camp that says don’t pay anyone any money to help find money. But no one tells you how to do it on your own. Thank you, thank you, thank you. This is a great help. I’m going to sign up for your optin for free investor tips to keep getting info from you on all these great insights.

    Well thank you, Rex. Our mission, our passion is helping entrepreneurs…. this is how we can help those that don’t yet have the capital to pay for the expertise. We have found an educated client is a better client. They understand the value of the dollar and how to use it wisely.

    Sound like a good program if you really work it. Like the idea of investing time and not just dollars in taking my business to the next level…and knowing how to do it. Good roadmap. The podcast really helped.
