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

We’ve got you covered in week 2, with…

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."

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!
