For those of us who decide that we want to venture off and pursue a business idea we have, where do we start? The library? The book store? Message boards?
Without any sort of prior experience or education, starting a business can be quite an overwhelming and confusing objective to set for yourself. We will address the initial considerations that accompany the launch of a new company in the US, and help provide some direction so that you can begin formulating your vision and formally establishing your new endeavor. We want you to go from the passive state of "I have an idea" to the more proactive and committed state of "I'm starting a business". We help orient you in the fundamentals of creating your new business so you know what your first steps need to be. This includes learning the different legal structures your business can take on (and the pros and cons of each); different funding options available to cover start-up costs if you'd prefer not to pay out of pocket; why the state you establish your business in matters (from legal and financial standpoints) and the benefits some states offer that others do not; and how to figure out a focus if you happen to be someone who wants to start a business (or are simply sick of working for other people) but aren't quite sure what to start one in. Our intention is for this class to serve as an efficient reference point that will help you simplify the initial stages of setting up a business.
AROV Education was developed with the intent of helping people achieve their goals and build the life they want to live. We offer this class in the hope that the information within it will help orient you in the right direction and inspire you to follow through on your entrepreneurial dream, whatever it may be. After all, if you're reading this, you're doing so for a reason. Thus, for what it's worth, our initial advice is this: Fear failure no more than you fear success, and think big- without limitations. As the philosopher Lao Tzu once said, "The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step."
