Attention: Artists, Crafters, Dreamers of Owning Their Own Business, Those Who Are Tired of the 9 to 5, Semi-Retired, Forced to Retire, Laid-off, and Those Who Want to Create a Lifestyle the Love

  • Set your own working hours (and never punch someone else’s clock again)
  • Choose your own clients (so you can stop putting up with nasty customers)
  • Decide your own pay rate (instead of waiting for that oh-so generous 3% increase at the end of the year)
  • Work from home in your comfy pants and pony-tailed hair (or maybe from a lounge chair by the pool)

Don’t waste another minute building someone else’s business. Instead, start counting down the days until you can finally say, 

“I quit!”

Hey there soon-to-be business owner,

How long have you been daydreaming about hanging out your virtual shingle and finally kissing the 9 to 5 job (and your horrible boss) goodbye?

If you’re like most would-be business owners, chances are you’ve spent a fair number of hours contemplating what life will be like when you can finally…

I’m Kimberly “Design” Love. I got that nickname at events because I am always designing something new.

I am a former college professor, while I missed my students and teaching I did not miss the corporate nonsense that went with my job. Since 2011, I have turned my love of design and teaching into a business I love waking up for everyday.  I am known for making difficult tasks easy & fun to learn. 

Attach to Section 6

  • Who your clients & customers and what they really need (and are willing to pay for)
  • How much you can charge (too little is just as bad as too much)
  • How to reach your market (because even the best program will sit on the shelf if you don’t know how to promote it)

Dreaming and wishing alone won't provide you with a solid plan and sometimes it just feels easier to keep your day job. 

But you don't have to settle for being a dreamer not a doer. Instead take a look at... 

How can you possibly organize all your notepads, sticky notes, emails, random thoughts, trainings, books and folders (virtual and otherwise) into some sort of logical order? Where do you even begin?

Even if you think you have a viable business idea (and let’s face it, you really don’t know for sure) it can seem impossible to develop a full-fledged business from it. You have to figure out…

Why I created this workshop...

I started my first business at 19 years old because my boss did something that completely shocked me! Later on I'll tell you all about that but first I want to tell you why I created this workshop. 

As a college professor, I did not have to worry about finding students (marketing). It was my job to retain students by creating engaging classes. 

When I left teaching and decided to start my own business, I struggled with writing a business plan and the numbers side of my business. In fact, the first business plan that I wrote took me months to create.  It was so bad that a local business man that I shared it with burst into laughter and threw it on the ground saying, "This is pure CRAP!" 

I was humiliated but I did not give up. I had to find or create tools that worked with my creative brain to make a profitable business plan.
 
The reality is that anyone can start a business today.

The problem is not everyone can succeed at a business. If you are not careful, you will create a hobby that costs you money instead of making money. 

The solution is proper planning and daily action. Each week of this step by step workshop is designed to move you closer to your entrepreneurial dreams by providing exactly the information you need right when you need it. No more floundering; no more chaos; no more confusion. 

Just a rock-solid plan to take you from cube dweller to boss - in less time than it takes to negotiate a raise. 

Week one kicks it off by ensuring your new business has wings, so you don't have to worry it will sink like a stone and leave your nothing to show for your efforts.

Great businesses like Walt Disney Company started with dreams and excitement followed by decisions and actions. Of course, there’s more to starting a business than just a good idea. You also need to ensure a steady stream of paying clients. Not only that, but you need to know that you’ll still love your business in a few months—and even years—or you’ll quickly burn out. 

We’ll cover all that and more in week 1, including…


  • 5 exercises to know you’ll still love your business next year—because hating your business is far worse than hating your day job
  • Reflection on life lessons - Explore what you hated in your past jobs, what mistakes you learned from
  • 2 tools to help you explore your true motivations, secret desires, lost passions and business aptitude—so you can be sure you have what it takes to make it long-term and have a business you will love waking up for each day
  • What the personal values can really tell you—and how to use the information to build a better business
  •  8 traits of powerful ideas—so you can instantly know if your plan has the hallmarks of a successful business
  •  A 5-point checklist to help determine if it’s the right idea for you—because a great idea can only be successful when it’s paired with the right entrepreneur
  • 8 ways timing matters—and what to do if now is not the right time for your new business
  • The single, most important question you must ask yourself—if you don’t answer this with honesty and integrity, you’re setting yourself up for a hard fall

By the time you work through the week 1 training, you’ll know for sure that your idea is viable, and that you have what it takes to see it through to completion. And that alone will put you far ahead of those dreamers out there who are still waiting for the perfect opportunity to come along.


"Never forget it all started with a little mouse." Walt Disney 

This is where most would-be business owners begin to lose heart. The legal and financial obligations that come with owning a business can feel overwhelming, and if you don’t know the right path to take, you can quickly become lost.

  • How to survey your market to explore your business idea.

In week 3, we’re going to build the infrastructure of your business. We’ll set up your website, create your mailing list, plan your products, and discover your dream client. Whew! That sounds like a lot of work, but it’s really not when you have a plan, including…

"Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, on the action steps they need to take to get them closer to their fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them." 
Jack Canfield

"Each of us has an inner dream that we can unfold 
if we will just have the courage to admit what it is. 
And the faith to trust our own admission."
 Julia Cameron 


 
If you miss this opportunity, when will you allow yourself to say “yes” to your dreams? Stop setting for the status quo, and start reaching for your goals, for your business, and for your life. 

I can’t promise that you’ll make a million dollars or become the next Tony Robbins, but I can promise you this. If you do the work I’ve outlined in this course, you’ll be miles closer to owning your own business than you have ever been.


How much is that worth to you?


Earlier I promised to share about what my boss did that shocked me into starting my own business. 

I was 19 years old, a college girl, and I worked part time at a local decorating shop. My boss asked me to go out and make some sales calls around town. I did and I happily brought in two clients.  My boss was not happy, in fact he yelled at me saying, "We don't work with those KIND of people!" 

I was stunned that my boss had such a racist attitude and I said, "Maybe you don't work with those kind of people but I do." I quit on the spot. I called those clients and let them know that I no longer worked for that little decorating shop but I was happy to finish their project as a consultant. I was an instant entrepreneur and interior design consultant on a restaurant and several homes in the area. 

Now it's time for you to design a business you love!
