The 7-Phase, business-building Process Breaks Down Like This:
Phase 1: Preparing to Startup
In Phase 1, you develop the mentality and approach of a successful founder. Get up-to-speed fast on the “lean approach” to creating a money-making business, be introduced to the simple tools you’ll be using, set SMART goals, and learn the 6 traits of a successful entrepreneur so you can get started with a solid foundation.
Phase 2: Finding the Problem
In Phase 2, you find your unique business sweet spot: the intersection between the customers you are going to serve and the problems those customers need solved. Identify ideas with unmet market potential, find early adopters (your first future customers), run customer discovery interviews, and more. Now, you can move forward with an idea worth building a business on.
Phase 3: Finding the Solution
In Phase 3, you craft the first variation of your solution. You identify gaps in existing solutions, sharpen your unique value proposition, design your first offer experiment, and test it with real potential customers. So, you get the proof that customers are actually willing to pay for what you’re building.
Phase 4: Creating the Venture
In Phase 4, you create the business’s brand and online presence. You’ll register your business, build your website, check for trademarks, set up your marketing and sales channels, and more. So, you’ll have the foundation you need to pre-sell your product, service, or SAAS solution.
Phase 5: Developing the Product, Service, or Software
In Phase 5, you test your first sellable minimum viable product. Map the buying process, figure out pricing, build your MVP, and run your first sales experiment. So, you’ll have the proof that customers are buying your solution and the feedback to make it even better.
Phase 6: Developing the Market
In Phase 6, you pave a profitable pathway to your best customers. Learn how to finalize your MVP, automate parts of your processes, test new sales channels, and more. All so you can find even more potential buyers and turn them into happy customers.
Phase 7: Scaling Up
In Phase 7, you gear up to grow. Build a team, find a mentor, pitch investors, raise funding, and most importantly, celebrate your success. You made it!
