Many people fantasize about starting their own business, but never take that important first step in achieving their dream. Wicked Start: Guide to Starting a New Venture with Passion and Purpose by Wicked Start founder Bryan Janeczko, helps change that. This new ebook, now available on Amazon, encourages readers to harness their passion and leverage their sense of purpose to build and grow a meaningful and enduring new venture.
Wicked Start (www.wickedstart.com), the online startup accelerator, reveals that Food & Beverage, Retailing, and Business Products & Services were the top three types of business ideas developed in 2012, accounting for 36% of total new ideas being incubated. "Given current marketplace trends, in particular with more simplified access to online sales and distribution channels, we are not surprised that these types of business ideas are being developed," said Wicked Start Founder, Bryan Janeczko.
In my last post, I described a Web-based service called Wicked Start that can bring a measure of automation to the process of getting a new business off the ground. Wicked Start lays out a sort of template for each of 10 major steps in starting a company, suggesting ways to proceed, pointing out what might be overlooked, and offering various resources and advice. I also briefly mentioned a Wicked Start user: Hari Kaur, a yoga instructor who four months ago opened her own jazz-yoga studio in Manhattan, called Hari NYC. Ms. Kaur tried the Web site at the suggestion of one of her yoga students, who just happens to be the founder of Wicked Start, Bryan Janeczko.
Hari Kaur has been teaching yoga for 20 years as a private instructor and at other people’s studios, most recently in New York, but it was only late last year that she decided she wanted to start her own Jazz Yoga school — the world’s first, as far as she knew. What she didn’t know was much about how to start and run a business.
But one of her students happened to be an experienced entrepreneur who had recently started his fourth company, and he gave her some smart-sounding advice on funding, marketing and leasing a space. When she came up with more questions, he told her she ought to check out that latest business of his, which happened to be a free online service focused on how to start a company...
Wicked Start, an online incubator for early-stage start-ups, provides practical, no cost or low cost resources.
A recent study by the U.S. Small Business Administration reports that 52 percent of entrepreneurs get advice from a mentor, which can improve your business profitability and avoid common pitfalls.
