Start a side business and make your first dollar

Do you have a lot of “great” business ideas?

Have you ever bought a domain name only to let it sit idle for a year?

Spent hours thinking of the perfect name for your company or product and never made a $1?

How about get company business cards or shirts before making a sale?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, chances are, you’re a Wantrepreneur. In other words, you like to talked the talk, but haven’t walked the walk.

This course will change that.

This course is designed to help you graduate from a Wantrepreneur to an Entrepreneur by helping you learn the fundamentals of starting a side business and making your first dollar--all without a technical cofounder.

I’ve gained the knowledge I will share in the course with you from many business failures, along with subsequently creating two multi-million dollar businesses including my most current business,, where we curate tools and education to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses. 

What you’ll learn in this course:

How to validate your business ideas and determine if its worth pursuing and  how to find your first customer

By the end of this course you will have learned how to validate business ideas and make your first dollar.

So if you’re tired of dreaming the dream and want to start living it, enroll in this class -- and kill your inner Wantrepreneur.




Be willing to do some work and step out of your comfort zone
