StartupBusinessStore.com is designed to do one thing: help our fellow founders succeed.
Founded by Peter Johnson, an experienced entrepreneur who has launched new businesses since the age of 7 - who cut his teeth in the 1990's Dotcom Era, was a finance professional/floor trader/broker/fund manager, and has also raised millions of dollars for his own - and client - startup ventures. Peter & his businesses have been featured extensively in the mainstream media. These days he consults with startups, plays golf, skis, writes software, trades the markets, and plays with cryptocurrencies.
The world in 2020 is such a different place - many people who had decent incomes have seen them disappear or go to near-zero. We firmly believe that any semi-intelligent person - with our help - can establish a business that can generate a living wage for that person. What does that mean? It means everyone has the opportunity to work for themselves, set their own hours, and once they have some experience: set and achieve some pretty incredible income goals for themselves and their families.
What's an "incredible income goal"? Would you be happy with $1,000,000 per year? Sounds like a lot, but when you break it down and realize that it's just $2780/day in revenue...it all of a sudden gets a lot more achievable. Of course: you're probably not going to do what it takes to make that kind of revenue because simply put: most don't have the perseverence, the resilience (you will fall down and have to get up again...eventually), or you're just comfortable enough and aren't willing to put in the work. Nobody owes you a damn thing. If you want it you're going to have to work for it. That's reality. Magic infomercial boxes of cash don't just showing up in the mail! Business 101 - that's it. Sell something for more than it cost you...and sell a lot of it. That's how it works. Most of us don't need $1M/yr to be happy. An extra $5,000-$10,000/mo does it for most - what are your goals? Passive income can be life-changing - when your bills are covered before you get out of the bed in the morning: you are free - that's REAL Freedom! Your time - your Life - is then your own. Don't discount the value of being your own person - it has IMMENSE value. And that's really the goal we're all looking to achieve with an online business.
And it doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg either - most of the software we use is either free or less than $50/mo. All you need to know is how to put it all together, say the right thing to the right person at the right time, and collect the money. Sounds easy, right? (I kid). It's easier than you might think these days.
So how can I and my team help best help you get started? It depends.
If you're "doing your homework" and really just thinking about getting started with an online business, we recommend our online course: "21st Century Startup: 10 Steps to Success". It's a simple online course and only $97 for all 10 lessons where I give you a review of how all of this is done with modern technology to automate as much of your business as we can. If you actually follow along step-by-step you'll have built your first Website. And once you know how to do it: you can build as many as you want. What do you think you could sell a Web site for? $100? $5000? $30,000? Probably...if you're good.
If you're serious about getting started you can take all the time you want and do your homework and study this and that and buy and read books and take online courses, and that's all well & good, but unless you TAKE ACTION: you will see zero results. We've been doing this long enough to know that sometimes it just makes sense to hire pro's to accomplish the immediate task at hand in order to create some momentum (and also make sure it's done right the first time!). So we've put together a couple turn-key packages depending on your business goals. All startups can use the foundation package that will get you up and running with the basics. Our eCommerce Package is for founders that want to position themselves for a large online revenue stream, and includes the marketing systems you'll need to drive, track, and analyze the traffic you'll need to send to your professionally-built Website.
And if you need to raise some funds from investors to reach your business goals: now we're talking. That's really our niche. We can help you look good pretty fast, and we speak the language of money and can help you position yourself for outside investment. But it takes work. LOTS of work. And it's never done - there will be revision after revision because thing. Will. Change. Change is the only constant, so be prepared to make changes on the fly. Pivots are common. Maybe you thought you'd sell a custom wood product but the market tells you there's demand for one of the features and you can sell a ton of that feature (but not your product, necessarily). What are you gonna do? Follow the money, that's what. Don't ever lose sight of the fact that a business is an organization designed to reach a singular goal: profit.
Being a Startup Founder has been explained as having two full-time jobs: 1) Running a successful, growing, and profitable business, and 2) Raising Money. And that's what it feels like. And it's SUPER-fun when you close a round. Most don't have what it takes, but if you are prepared, have your ducks in a row and Know. Your. Numbers. Then...maybe: you'll catch someone's eye. Once you are ready: we have a system to introduce you to potential interested parties. (Make no mistake: we do not/will not pitch your deal, sell your stock, or any of that - we do NOT do securities offerings public or private.) You'll have to decide what you'd like to do with your outside investment, but that's between you and your investors. But it better be pretty good - we can give you some advice on what others are saying and what investors are currently looking for/interested in. We'll help you meet the right people. If you're interested: get in touch.
And regardless of where your startup is at - if you need help - get in touch and we'll give you our 2 cents. Even if we don't do business: we'll point you in the right direction.
Thank you for checking out our Website, and we wish you the best in your Startup.
Have Fun & Make Money.
Highest Regards from Colorado,
Founder & CEO
