A big part of this blog is showing my entrepreneurial journey as I make decisions to add and at times remove products and services that I offer through The Next Step. I had recently posted about potential small business services - read more about that here How an Entrepreneur Creates New Service Offerings.
My new page is here New Page - Small Business Consulting Services. Check it out and let me know what you think. In thinking about this and weighing various decision factors, I decided to move forward with a "soft launch" of my small business services. What does a "soft launch" mean? It means I released the products and services with minimal fanfare and am still in the thinking phases of whether or not these new ideas make sense for me and my business.
That being said, the cornerstone of my small business services is something I have been promoting and working on since September with my partnership with Wagner College Department for Lifelong Learning, the Entrepreneurship: Building Your Own Business course - more on that here My Entrepreneurship Certificate Course with Wagner College Department for Lifelong Learning.
A new addition for this course is that we will be using my own books in addition to other resources and lessons on building business. My first book in the Entrepreneur-ING series lays the groundwork for identifying entrepreneurial skill sets that can be applied to either launching a business or being the boss of your own career. My second installment, publishing soon, will teach how to go from zero to launch with real expertise and advice from someone who has launched and failed and relaunched and tried again... As I am an educator at heart for the last 13 years, my writing and lessons are applicable and actionable for anyone to be an entrepreneur.
While I would love to see you take my class with Wagner College Department for Lifelong Learning, you can start "small" with the books and then move forward with the course with me. Find out more about my books here More on my Entrepreneur-ING books here.
If you are perhaps further along in your process, you can also consider just buying my extensive business plan how to template, which includes my book as a bonus; order here-->
And for even more advanced clients who want to create and build an awesome social media world around their companies I am offering a soup to nuts turnkey blogging service for companies who want to learn and move forward with building their content and business marketing. Here is that product: Small Business Blogging Services.
What do you think of this soft launch of small business services? I considered creating another press release but ultimately thought I would test launch this via this small blog post first and then decide in the future what/if to do for more promotion.
