  •  Godwin Start-Up School is entrepreneurial development... or consulting on steroids.

     

     

    Entrepreneurs, by their very nature, are problem-solvers.

    Godwin Start-Up School bridges the gap between theory and real-world entrepreneurial challenges by vaccinating start-ups against unnecessary mistakes at a time when it matters most…the beginning.

     

     

    SELF STARTERS

     

    We know that starting and running successful businesses is tough! Most of the time you don't know you're in too deep until it's too late. Knowing where to go and who to ask for advice or assistance isn't always obvious.

     

    Built on our experience with entrepreneurs over the past 13 years, we provide full-access to a business advisor for ten weeks of one-on-one meetings, where no subject about your business is off-limits.

     

    We also provide accounting services to your new venture for those ten weeks, ensuring a solid foundation for your company's financial data. We use that information to explain your company's real-time financial health to you.

     

    WHAT YOU SHOULD EXPECT

     

    • You will be able to confidently identify, comprehend and work through the challenges that all business owners face as they embark on a new business venture and begin to grow.
    • You will understand the importance of sound financial systems and practices.
    • You will be able to make decisions based on the advice of a professional, not an internet search.
    • You will gain an ally with an outside perspective.
    • You will ascend to the level you desire in your business, not by happy accident, but with purpose.

    YOUR NEW BUDDY

     "The best thing I ever did was start my own business."

     

    Is what you will hear Jonathan Godwin say to anyone who is even thinking about starting a business. He grew up watching his family run businesses. He watched his father run a successful general store in the town he grew up in. He was so accustomed to keeping the store's accounting that he was surprised to hear one could actually go to school for that!

     

    So, in a way, owning his own business has always been his destiny.

     

    Throughout the last 12 years, he has seen so many entrepreneurs struggle and succeed at various ventures. Along the way, he found that the thing he enjoyed most about working with his clients were the discussions. This was where they seemed to really be able to peel back the layers of a business and troubleshoot.

    In preparing the agenda for this mentoring journey, he examined why his clients succeeded, and why they failed, and whittled down those reasons in order to help you.

     

    Your business is unique, as are your challenges. As a better educated entrepreneur you will be able to help protect and grow your business.
