Learning How to Start a Business Shouldn't Be
So Complicated and Confusing

But, when you don't have a clear plan you can waste a lot of time (and money)...

  • You can't prioritize your tasks because you don't know what to focus on next
  • You don't have the time to learn new skills, or the money to hire the help
  • You need guidance, but nobody is around to teach you about business or support you
  • Technology seems overwhelming and you don't know where to start
  • You know you need to do more marketing, but you don't have any idea what to say
  • You want to use social media, but are overwhelmed by getting it all done 

Every BizFlint course, workshop and support session is designed to help you learn exactly what you need to grow your business from small to big in the most effective way possible.

Want to know how to start a business that is profitable and runs itself?

So, you've decided to take the entrepreneurial leap, but what now? At BizFlint, we know that figuring out how to start a business, even a small one, can be a challenge. Perhaps you've seen the statistics? Only 50% of new businesses survive past the first year.  That means you need to get up and running quickly, and you need to work smarter, not harder.  Sure, if money were no problem, you could hire someone to personally guide you every step of the way.  But, how do you start a business with no money (or very little)? That's why we're here.  We believe every business owner should have easy access to business coaching and the business resources they need to start a small business and grow.  But, you don't just need any business. You need a business that is profitable, and that practically runs itself, which requires strategy and sound advice. That's why we're here.  Rather than trying to piece together everything you need, we decided to put it all in one place. We offer free business resources, affordable online business courses, and small business training with the best information available for starting, growing and marketing your business. Get unstuck today by taking our free "Overcoming Fear in Business" quiz to figure out what's holding you back, or sign up for a business course or small business workshop. Our programs are like having an affordable business coach you can access from home (or anywhere).
