First Questions You Should Ask

Business is a marathon, not a sprint and to get started, it all begins with answering a few simple questions:

  1. Why do you want to open this business?
  2. What is your brand?
  3. What makes you unique?
  4. What is your zone of genius?
  5. What is your passion?

"Age is never a problem, just be honest where you are in your journey". 

Monday Morning Tip

Work out the three most important things you want to get done this week and make sure you write them down. Tell yourself, 'if I get more done then that's a bonus'.


When you have a clear space, you have a clear mind to get things done. When you create space in your external world, you create space in your internal world.
