The Simple Startup

The mission of The Simple StartUp is to help aspiring entrepreneurs to start their first business. This is accomplished through The Simple StartUp: A Beginner's Guide To Starting Your Own Business workbook, and our live events.

Starting a business shouldn't be a scary process. We can learn most of the lessons and skills needed in complex businesses by starting something simple first. Being a business owner gives you control over your income, your time, and your talent stack. You can choose to pursue any idea you choose and gain the important skills and knowledge that are applicable to almost every situation in your life.

Let's get started!
