Go For Launch – How to Start A Business

If you have ever thought about starting your own business (or know someone who is considering it), I hope Go For Launch will become a favorite resource. It is my newest venture, inspired by both my successes and failures as an entrepreneur.

I think the time is right for more real-world resources and educational tools about what it takes to start and grow a successful business. Every month in the U.S. alone, there are more than 500,000 new businesses started! That is a lot of people seeking advice! What’s more, every day for the next 15 years, 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65. Many of them will undoubtedly be forced (or finally freed) to turn their passion and knowledge into a new profession.

To learn more about what’s coming, visit Go For Launch. Sign up to get a free copy of my new ebook, 7 Steps To Start A Business The Right Way. And make sure to friend and follow on Facebook and Twitter.

The name Go For Launch comes from the classic scene in the movie Apollo 13, when the mission commander counts down to the fateful launch. The idea that there are checklists for the most complicated things on earth (in this case, rocket science) propelled me to begin distilling the process of starting a business into simple information and empowering courses.

Houston, we are go for launch!
