Starting and Growing a business requires planning and strategically setting things in motion.

 

It’s also important to prepare for the business growth you desire. 

 

Here are some simple basic steps to help you close 2019 on the right track.

 

These steps will also help you start and prepare for 2020:

  1. Review and Analyze your year; what you did, accomplished and your profit
  2. What would you like to see different for 2020; expand your business, hire staff, contract VA’s, promote more services or products
  3. Prepare for taxes/year-end; make sure all your financials A/P & A/R, reconciliation, ledgers are in place
  4. File all your old important files; contracts, agreements, invoices, etc
  5. Create your New Year plan; what will you do vs what you did, what will you add vs what you didn’t have.  What new products or services will you add or remove.  Where are your profit margins in accordance with last year’s plans & goals…
  6. Make sure you have a mailing (email) list and contact them whether it’s with a: Happy Holidays, New Terms & Conditions changes or Pricing updates, so they know your still there to help them out.
  7. Create your Social Media posts in advance; post a minimum of 3/times per week, if possible more, but 3 should suffice.
  8. Network; online or offline it’s going to be very important especially now with all this online marketing you have to be competitive.
  9. Delegate your work, but before you do that you MUST HAVE a plan on who, what and how you will do that and your expectations of them.
  10. “Work Hard to Play Hard” is my “Motto”. It’s important that you understand that you have to enjoy life because life is too short and spending your days in the office is NOT the way to go, nor is it the life of a Real Entrepreneur! (at least not for me)

 

You still got time to plan ahead and make sure that you’re starting your business on the right track!

In order to make the above items work, it’s important to consider your HEALTH & make sure that you’re on the right track when it comes to SelfCare! 

 

Here are some tips to help you out…

  1. Wake up early and always prepare 1 day ahead for the next day.  Use those 15-30 mins to help you with your self-care such as meditation, tea time, reading, exercising and help you prepare for the day; mindset!
  2. During the day make sure to Break in between (especially those of us who work from home it’s so easy to just dive into working and not taking a minute for ourselves).  So use those 15-30 mins a day and go for a walk, jump rope, stretching, or maybe a moment to do some “box breathing” exercised to help stimulate the mind and help you relax.
  3. Create a plan for both your personal life and business (TRUST ME IT WORKS!)…

 

As a mother with 4 kids keeping up with sports, activities, events, work, training, etc it can be overwhelming and stressful.

 

It can be even more overwhelming trying to remember EVERYTHING, so have a calendar and have your kids (if old enough to write – make them responsible for their tasks). 

 

Write down their events, so that you can properly plan your business around your family vs. your family around your business…

 

Your Family is ALWAYS FIRST!

How to Create Your Business Plan 101

The "Hustler Business Plan" 101

Create a successful business plan for your Business (DIY)

Boss Up and Rise

By FAVIOLA VALENCIA "THE CEO HUSTLER"

Why is a Business Plan important?

 

Imagine starting your business with “high-profit margins, low overhead, and no physical products, a business you could run from the comfort of your own home or from wherever” all while bringing in six figures, with a platform you probably already use – wouldn’t that be great?!

 

Well, before you can do that you need to create a business plan just as with any other business, you need to have a plan in place for your business, regardless of the type of business.

 

So, before you even begin to think about making any type of income from your services, or products, you need to start treating your “business” as a business.

 

Yes, many “businesses” start a business, but they don’t treat it like a business…In other words, they are just providing the service, collecting the money “commingling funds and their business”, which is a NO!, NO!

 

Little Story: I started my business in 2000 but unlike many businesses I had business experience both Small and Corporate experience and therefore I knew early on what I needed to have in place and what I needed for my business in order to protect it and protect myself.

 

However NOTHING is “BULLETPROOF” and even with all these measures things still happen, but if you prepare yourself you are able to handle things a lot better than NOT being prepared, right?!

“A business without a plan is doomed to fail, According to U.S. Small Business Administration, a business plan precisely defines your business, identifies your goals and serves as your firm’s resume.”

The biggest mistake that I’ve come across when it comes to business is that many exist without a business plan. 

 

But, unfortunately, many fail or put their business at RISK because they don’t have what they need for their business.  

 

A companies business plan is the foundation of a business, without it, a company is inevitably “doomed to fail – bottom line your putting your business at RISK!”

 

Example: When you have a plan you actually start thinking about your earnings,  but also the best way on how to allocate your resources—time and plan more importantly plan on your business growth and where you want to be or go.

 

Unfortunately, not every savvy entrepreneur creates a plan before they launch a new venture…All entrepreneurs, freelancers, solopreneurs, start-ups, etc should (must) create a business plan.

 

Regardless of how long you’ve been in business (even if you are a newbie), walk with me through the following steps and let’s create a strategy (we’ll call it our “Hustler business plan”) and fast track your path to profitability.

If you are struggling with your business, I invite you to Join Me on 12/26/2019 at 6:00 p.m (pst) this is my yearly workshop where we dive in on; year-end review, new year planning, planning and development and so much more.  Spaces are limited so don’t delay and sign up now…

If you are struggling with your business, I invite you to Join Me on 12/26/2019 at 6:00 p.m (pst) this is my yearly workshop where we dive in on; year-end review, new year planning, planning and development and so much more.  Spaces are limited so don’t delay and sign up now…

 

Don’t miss out on this amazing price and bonuses will not be available until next year!

A business plan doesn’t have to be complex or 20+pages long especially if you are just starting out, it can be a Basic plan with basic components;  balance sheet, an income statement, and a cash flow analysis.  

 

It will help you allocate resources properly, handle unforeseen complications, and make the right decisions for you and your business.

 

This information is crucial for your business because it provides specific and organized information about your company and how you will repay any borrowed money.  And more importantly, having a good business plan will help your overall success for you and your business. 

 

A business plan will also help you if you are thinking of adding on a sales team, VA’s, vendors, suppliers, or operations team, but it will help you define and focus on your goals.

 

Remember your business is your “Baby” and having a plan on how to care for your “Baby” is going to be so important and crucial for the overall growth of your “Baby”, right?  You have to teach your baby how to “Crawl before they Walk, and before they Run”…  

 

So, now that we got the “411” out of the way, let me tell you that everything that I share with you is based on “Real Life” experiences, knowledge, trial/error, research and development and I share with you ONLY things that I’ve invested in and proven methods. 

 

Having said that, you can choose to spend the Time & Money in doing your research, or contracting another “Coach” to create the plan for your business, or you can invest in my DIY that includes a Step-by-Step process and plan that I’ve used for my business. 

 

I spent over $5k on this plan, but I share it with you because I know how expensive starting and growing a business can be and I wish I had this same benefit back when I started my business, but I didn’t!

 

Did you know that A business plan varies quite a bit and Consultants can charge around $3,000 to $15,000 for a complete business plan? For larger corporate projects, expect to see costs ranging from $25,000 to $50,000 – YES!!! 

 

And these plans usually don’t include your Sales & Marketing, Strategic Planning, HR, Operations, etc…these are all sold separately but are so IMPORTANT if you want to run a successful business!

 

Let me tell you that I spent over $30k just on plans, handbooks, manuals, etc but they played a key role in my growth and success with my business, more importantly, they helped me get the 6-figure contracts and expansion.

Start Your Interpreting Business in One Day

Start Your Own Interpreting Career… 

Become a Professional Interpreter…

How to Become an Interpreter

the ceo hustler helping you boss up and rise

By Faviola Valencia, the CEO Hustler

Are you Bilingual?

Want to be Your Own Boss?

Want to Start Your Own Business?

Do you Like Working and Helping Others?

Like Traveling?

If you answered YES, then this might be the Career for YOU!

“It takes more than JUST BEING BILINGUAL to become a Professional Interpreter… it takes; professional skills, training and much more!…”

But DON’T WORRY! 

 

I have everything you need to get you started on your Career!  I’ve been in this industry for over 19+ years. 

 

I started as a “Freelance Interpreter” in 2000 and within just a few months, I started my own Interpreting agency. 

While running my agency I was also Training New “Potential” Interpreters and teaching the Does and Don’ts of this wonderful Industry.

Get Your FREE step-by-step guide and get your career started today!

Download it for free . make sure to watch the Free Training Video below…

Now things to remember and to take into consideration and these “inside secrets” no one tells you or is willing to talk about!

In business and in life you will ALWAYS have ups/downs and being prepared is so important!

Little History:

We all start excited and feel complete and “stoked” when business is growing and running smoothly and cash is rolling in and business is just BOOMING, right?!

 

How about when S***hits the fan?!

 

Yup, that was me…Business was good, Life was good and things didn’t seem BAD, but then…

  1. I suffered an auto accident (was out for almost one year…
  2. The economy was about to crash (but I didn’t see it coming) bu
  3. Then I got pregnant (had a bad pregnancy & almost lost my Baby Girl)
  4. Son suffered a femur fracture (son in a body cast), just when I thought things couldn’t get worse…well they did!
  5. My father was diagnosed with Brain Cancer (Stage 4 Glioblastoma & after just a few months passed away).
  6. I was being “sued, accused of “crappy, s****” business practices (but I was victorious and was able to prove my innocence)…

 

But in the eyes of my “loyal interpreters, subcontractors” I was just a horrible business owner who was taking advantage of them, who “cheated them, but “unbeknown to them I was going through horrible business and life experiences (I don’t wish upon anyone).

 

Unbeknown to them I was also a victim of “bad business, business shutdowns, the economy crashing & life/death situations”, but as the CEO it was my fault & I am responsible for everything even the horrible ups/downs & life struggles and challenges.

 

So after my father passed away I decided to close my business and go back to Freelancing, as well as continuing to  Train New Potential Interpreters to help them prepare and avoid these same challenges and problems.

Fast forward… Let me tell you I enjoy being a Freelancer and Entrepreneur more than running an Agency and CEO :)…

 

Many ask Why…

 

Well as you can see based on my “Little History” that is why, but also I don’t have to deal with bureaucracy and headaches that come along with running a large business 🙂

 

Now don’t get me wrong running an Agency is a very lucrative business and industry to be in, but YOU MUST BE PREPARED to work around the clock to make your business work.

 

Versus a Freelancer / Entrepreneur you get to work when you want, earn as much as you want and have the freedom that you want – sounds great, right?

 

Here I am “still standing, with my head up high” and with God’s blessings…

  1. My father passes away, but he’s in a better place
  2. My daughter is alive and healthy (dealing with kidney issues, but never the less alive)
  3. I survived the “Economy Crash”
  4. My son recovered and is living his dream of being a Chef

 

So here I am still enjoying this wonderful industry providing services to various companies across the globe, but more importantly, I get to Train and work with New Potential Interpreters all while doing what I love!

On another note, you will see online that there are various Training programs focusing on Medical, Legal and Conference Interpretation / Certification; however, if you don’t have the Basic Skills and understanding as to how this industry works, or how to run your own freelance/entrepreneur business then let me tell you, you are ONLY setting yourself for failure!

 

Join my Introduction to Interpreting Training

 

Why, well as you may be aware there are hundreds, if not thousands of young college students who go to college for years and years and after graduating they find themselves unable to obtain a job in their industry. 

 

Why? Well, because during their years in College they never got into internships, nor did they work in a similar industry to mirror their college career goal, therefore making them Non-Competitive!

 

Trust me when I say: Becoming a Certified Medical, Legal Interpreter is GREAT!

 

BUT…

 

If you don’t have the skills, qualifications, or understanding of this industry, YOU, MY FRIEND WILL NOT GET FAR!

 

Although I am NOT CERTIFIED, I do have OVER 18+ years of professional experience, as well as the skills, the qualifications to work in any industry I choose…

 

TRUST ME, my clients will pay my fees and will prefer to hire me vs a Certified Interpreter, why? Well, because of my skills, qualifications, and experience!

 

Note: I finally have the time and I’m currently working on my Certification – because it is a VALUABLE ASSET to have!

Start Your Own Business

Start Your Own Interpreting or General Business

 
 

Are you like many people who want to start your OWN BUSINESS but don’t know-how, or don’t know when, or if it’s going to be to much work, or maybe you tell yourself “I’ll do it tomorrow”…

 

STOP THE NON-SENSE and STOP PROCRASTINATING and GET IT DONE!!!

 

DON’T DO THIS THE NEXT DAY:

 

I WANT TO DO THIS…
I HAVE THIS AWESOME IDEA…
I WILL DO IT TOMORROW, FOR SURE…
HOW CAN I START IT?…

 

These things are what really, really annoy me…

 

People who come to me and ask me for advice, ask me on how to do it, but days, weeks, months go by and they still have NOT TAKEN ACTION!

 

Bottom line, if you are NOT serious then please DON’T WASTE MY TIME!

YEAUP, I said it!  Sorry, NOT SORRY! Sometimes we just have to be BLUNT and TO THE POINT, right?!

 

These types of people are the same ones that are always saying “poor me, life is hitting me hard, life never gives me time to breathe, I want to but I don’t have time, I don’t have money, etc”…

 

Excuse after excuse, they will always be the victim and everyone is out to get them, but no one is there to help them!

 

They think they’re the ONLY ones struggling, hurting, or going through hard times; well let me tell you – difficult times, struggles and hurting is what got me off my butt and got me TO DO SOMETHING to better my life and my families!

 

NO EXCUSES!!!

 

Enough with the BS, and the excuses or maybe, just maybe you are:

  • Lazy
  • Non-motivated
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Not confident
 
And that’s OK, just be honest with yourself and those who want to help you!
 
So ask yourself:
  • Do I want to move ahead? If you say yes, well GREAT JOB for being honest.
  • Do I want to start my business and do what I love? If you answered yes, then it’s time to MAKE A CHANGE and MAKE A DIFFERENCE in yourself!
 

As an Entrepreneur, I’ve made mistakes, I’ve procrastinated, I’ve made excuses after excuses, I failed, but GUESS WHAT???

 

I NEVER GAVE UP ON MY DREAM!

I #BossUpandRise

So it’s time that you don’t give up!

And before you say I don’t understand, or I don’t know, or I don’t care…Here’s a little story…
 
 
Throughout my years in business, I like many others who had challenges, problems, downfalls, I never gave up!
 
I also didn’t have the money to hire or contract a Business Coach I had to research, go through the trial and errors myself and do things myself!
 
And yes – I made many, many mistakes and I had to re-do things over and over, had to change domain names, business names, business structure, etc…but again – I NEVER GAVE UP because I knew someday I would get it right!
 
 
And so here I am 16+ years later still in business and sharing my experiences with you and hope to be able to help you achieve your goal, on a budget, on time and get your business rolling in no time!!!
 
 
Few things to remember:
 
  • Write down your business idea
  • Write down your plans, put your ideas in writing
  • Set your Goals
  • Be consistent
  • Take action
  • Be patient
  • Have Faith
  • Never, never lose Hope

No matter what business you decide to start with my services you will be on your way to being self-employed, entrepreneur and business owner.

Contact Me Today and Let’s Get Your Business Started!
