Your 12 Step Guide to Starting a Small Business | Step 2

Hello…. Um… is this thing on???.

Well, shit. Nobody shared their ‘business brainstorming’ pictures. I hope you all are just shy or maybe have really bad handwriting! Don’t worry, though; we forgive you!

Now, steps 2-6 are really gonna kick your ass; a lot of writing, brainstorming, and planning! But, follow along as we guide you through the process and make things muuuch simpler!

Step 2: Pen to Paper Baby. Let’s do this!

This is the stage that many of us entrepreneurs skip. I won’t lie, I myself was always bad about writing things out beforehand. My business plan was always in a notebook jumbled in with my to-do lists, grocery lists and a few random doodles here and there. Then, I met my business partner, Miranda, and she made me work through my chaotic process and format it correctly! Thanks goodness for business partners!

As much of a pain in the ass these steps were to me, and will be to you, they are sooooo helpful and fundamental to the start-up process! Defining your ideas on paper creates a concrete accountability system that most people need in order to be successful!
