Are you looking to start a business and trying to figure out that first big investment you must make for a successful launch? Look no further, the answer is right in front of you.
The first and most crucial investment you must make is in YOURSELF.
What does investing in yourself mean exactly?
It means giving yourself the absolute best opportunity to succeed by seeking out the resources available and ones necessary for the growth of not just your company, but yourself.
It’s not just the first, but a life-long investment you’ll need to make.
Think of it like buying a car. You buy the car and probably make payments every month just to keep ownership of the car. However, there are additional fees you must pay to keep the car in the optimal running condition such as oil changes and maintenance. The longer you keep the car the more investment you’ll need to make in the car.
The same goes for you. When starting a business you need to ensure that you’ve given yourself a fighting chance. This means you’ve done your research and obtained the knowledge necessary to move forward and continually seek out knowledge where you see fit.
The obstacle then becomes finding where you can get the knowledge you need to grow and scale your business.
The process of finding the resources doesn’t have to be daunting. I’ve laid out some resources here for you.

Many people get lost in the sauce. By this I mean, those who attempt starting a business often get lost in the other aspects of building said business that the first step and initial investment is often forgotten.
John for example started his first business in 2012 with big goals in mind. There were many trials, tribulations, and failures along the way and I'm sure that if he had the information he had now back then, things would have moved in a different direction. Knowledge was a key player in John's journey and will be for you too. Luckily for you, he's had years worth of experience that led him to understanding the HOW behind growing a successful business and is able to share that knowledge with you today.
Don't fail before you even start. Equip yourself with the tools neccesary for you to grow and your business will follow.
