Tuesday, August 13, 2024 @ 10am CDT / 3pm UTC

Starting a business is one of life’s thrilling experiences. It combines the adrenaline of risk-taking with the excitement of knowing that “you’re onto something” special that someone will buy. Whether you deliberately set out to start a business or the opportunity undeniably reveals itself, taking the first and next steps can be daunting.

But they don’t have to be if you do one simple thing: just get started. You don’t have to have everything figured out – you’ll do that as you go. Find out more in this information-packed webcast with Kirsten Liston, Founder and CEO of Rethink Compliance.

Key takeaways:
● How to get started on a shoestring
● When and how to bring on business partners and other collaborators (and the “rich vs king” distinction)
● Leveraging non-traditional team members, like stay-at-home moms
● Tapping mentors and smart strangers for insights to help you avoid mistakes and accelerate your learning curve
● “Baking in” a commitment to integrity from the start – how to do it and why it matters
