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…

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.

Lessons Learned Throughout my Business

#TheRiseTheFallTheComeback 

Faviola the CEO Hustler

By FAVIOLA ARANDA 'THE CEO HUSTLER'

MAKE IT HAPPEN! 

 

TRUE STORY📖 I started my business in 2000 all with a Dream & Vision, but NEVER in my wildest dreams did I think I had it in me to build a Top-Notch Corporate Business, but I did it! (I built a 6-figure business in less than 3-months)😱

 

▶️I didn’t have a plan, BUT…

▶️I did have a Vision & Dream

▶️I didn’t have a degree, but had tons of experience in Business!

▶️ I never let ANYTHING STOP ME 🛑 or get in my way to succeeding!

But then something happened…

“The Rise, The Fall, The ComeBack, I am Faviola #TheCEOHustler”

Life happened; I suffered an auto accident while coming back from San Francisco, CA.  I had all 3 of my kids in the car with me when we got rear-ended and I almost lost my small child, but Thank God, he’s OK, unfortunately, I ended up with severe neck/back/tissue/tendon injuries (still suffer from these same pains)!

 

A few months after we were at the Lake (our favorite place to relax) where unfortunately our middle child suffered a severe fracture (Jetski injury) and was in a body cast (femur fracture) for months!!!

 

And, if things couldn’t get worse I was pregnant (which it’s supposed to be the best time for a mother, right?) unfortunately for me it was such a horrible time and such a bad experience because I almost lost my Baby Girl due to a bad pregnancy due to (severe cholestasis), I was in/out of hospital 🏥 for 6-months until finally my husband couldn’t handle me anymore and had to get me hospitalized (admitted into hospital) for care and treatment and well my daughter was finally born (premature baby at only 32 weeks), but as you all see from my family pics thank God she’s a beautiful miracle princess!  

 

Unfortunately during this same time frame, my father was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, we were so devastated with everything going on…I was recovering from Auto Accident, Son in Body Cast, then I got pregnant 🤰 almost lost my daughter all while my poor father was slowly dying from Brain 🧠 Cancer and all while the economy was collapsing…S*** 💩was literally happening all at once!

 

⚠️Unbeknown to us the business was also starting to go downhill all due to these

⚠️”Life Situations and Unforeseen Circumstances)!

⚠️And of course, things just got worse I started getting sued left & right, getting harassed, threatened (interpreter literally coming to my home threatening me!!!

😢) who FREAKING DOES THAT?!!!  I had 100s of clients who owed me money 💵 who were not paying, the government shutdown affected my business so000 bad, yet I wasn’t at my client’s homes/doors/place of business harassing them or threatening them, but hey we are ALL DIFFERENT, RIGHT?!

 

And then S*** 💩😢happened my father passed📿 all while on verge of losing my house, losing everything I worked so hard for 💔no money, in pain, sick, devastated, defeated, etc…It felt like a knife “ripping through my chest”💔!

 

Life was happening behind the ‘scenes’ but sorry to say that the “ruthless” interpreters/contractors’ who for years I provided work too, who I always put first, took them to eat, gave them awards, stipends, opened the doors to my house, invited them to workshops (for free), provided them with FREE Training  (because without them my business would not have grown as big as it did), but when S***💩hits the fan everything I did for them went out the window and they forgot who I was and smeared my name like I was nothing!

 

Now I have forgiven because I’m sure (they were going through similar situations due to the economy) but honestly they were being brutal & didn’t understand or cared about my situation…They didn’t care that 1. My family was depending on me 2. 10 other employees & so many others were too…

 

Unfortunately, after my Dad passed I no longer gave a S*** 💩😢 and had no choice but to file for Bankruptcy and Closed my Doors! 

 

I felt like a total failure, defeated, depressed and just TIRED!!!

BUT!!! I #NeverGiveUp if my father taught me anything that was to Never Give Up!

 

After a few months of therapy, counseling and letting the storm pass, I decided to get up and #BossUpandRise 💯🔥I dusted my self off and went back 🔙 to the drawing board!

 

Looking back I don’t regret ANYTHING, but wished I could have done better, been better prepared, but hey God does things for a REASON!

 

I NOW appreciate that experience because;

1️⃣ I understand that God does things for a reason and this experience was necessary for me to learn & understand that we must prepare for the future & for ‘unforeseen circumstances’, but also take care of ourselves before being able to take care of others.

2️⃣ It helped me so that I can help others AVOID these same struggles, challenges, but more importantly, help them prepare for the future and give back through training and development!

3️⃣ It helped me to be the person I am today. Share+Learn+Grow+Prepare+Plan for the Future and continue to Help Others!

You see, we all make mistakes, but we can all learn from them & help others AVOID these same mistakes.🙏

We have 2 Choices..Get up ##BossUpandRise or Stay down and be defeated!

 

Regardless of the circumstances #KeepOnGoing

Vision and Dream Board

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Entrepreneurship

Vision Board 4 You!

A Vision Board is just a Vision if you don’t have clarity or don’t know How to make it work for you!

 

A Vision and Dream Board are simples methods to help you stay Motivated, Inspired and to Help Your Dreams and Vision turn into reality!

Your brain will work tirelessly to achieve the statements you give your subconscious mind. And when those statements are the affirmations and images of your goals, you are destined to achieve them! – Jack Canfield

How did I start?

I started with a Vision at about the age of 14...

I created my first Vision Board around 94′ many people (back then) didn’t know much about boards. 

 

I use to cut-out pictures from magazines, or would take pictures of things that inspired or things that I wanted to do, or from people! Unfortunately, I don’t have that Vision Board (got lost when we moved to Sacramento)…But my Vision and Mission never changed!

My Family and Life Vision were simple…

Like many little girls, I wanted to get married, have children and live in a small house with a “white picket’ fence.

  1. Married my “longtime childhood friend”.
  2. Bought our “small white picket fence” in 96′ at the young age of about 22.
  3. We have our ideal family (4 beautiful children)
  4. Remodeled my kitchen “designed it just like I wanted; custom cabinets, open concept, beautiful tile, etc)
  5. Bought our ideal Toys (cash no financing); Jetski, 4 wheeler and SS (SS turned out to be a lemon, so dealer bought it back) 

Bottom line everything I dreamed of when I was a young girl came to reality!  Onto my Business Corporate Life.

 

My Business Life and Vision I come from a family of immigrants, we immigrated into the Country around 78′-79′. My father started his Upholstery Business in the late ’80s; he inspired me and motivated me and made me want to Be My Own Boss.

 

I’m a hard worker, go-getter, researcher and not afraid to take on a challenge!  At the age of 14, I started working and love having and earning my own money.  I worked in a variety of fields, sectors and by the time I was 17 I was working as an Office Manager for a Small Construction Business.  So not only, seeing my father being his own boss, but working for a small to medium size business motivated me to continue working toward my Vision.

  1. Started my Freelance business in 2000
  2. Mid-2000 I turned my Freelance business into a Corporate Business
  3. End of 2000, my business was now a Million Dollar business
  4. End of 2000, I had over 2,500 contractors, over 10+ employees, contracts throughout the USA and abroad
  5. I wanted to become a Top Notch interpreter and I achieved that by self-training and development and researching and I’m able to provide services to a variety of business sectors!
  6. Wanted to live the “Lap Top” business life and I have and I am by incorporating services to make that Dream a reality
  7. I work from home and I am an Entrepreneur!

How to Contract a Virtual Assistant

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Entrepreneurship, Virtual Assistant

Hiring a Virtual Assistant, what you need to do before you decide to hire/contract/work/invest on a VA for you and your business.

Question: Your business is growing, right? Great!

 

But do you have the tools, processes, and procedures in place to hire/contract people in order to continue that growth without overwhelming yourself?

 

Well, now’s a great time to take charge and see where you may need help, as well as what processes and procedures you need to put in place to get this process started!

Here are somethings to ponder...

So, if your thoughts are to grow your business (today or in the future), you have to understand that it’s going to require lots and lots of work, if you want this contracting/recruiting process to work!

 

Things you must consider before you decide to hire employees, or recruit freelancers because (trust me), they will either “make you or break you”…YES, I SAID IT!

 

Also, keep in mind that it’s your responsibility not only to hire/contract employees, freelancers, contractors, management, etc., but it’s also your responsibility to train, mentor, but more importantly to have processes and procedures in place, because otherwise instead of moving forward you will be taking steps back!

 

💡TIP 1: Don’t line people up without having the right procedures in place.

💡Tip 2: Really understand your Biz growth and what you need and where you want to go.

💡Tip 3: Set your processes in place; recruiting, HR, administration, etc.

 

 

  • Lining people up before having processes in place will ONLY create chaos, confusion and in the long run problems.
  • Many of use don’t have an HR degree, or experience and therefore we may not be good in the whole recruiting and training process and that is why creating these processes and procedures will come in handy. (I created my own internal processes and procedures and therefore have been tested and proven to work effectively for all business sectors)
  • So, if you decide and envision your business growing, it is very, very important to have these procedures in place for each department, each staff member, etc.

These are just some basics to ponder, but it requires more than just this…

 

I hope you find these growth strategies helpful when you decided to hire help. These three simple tips make such a huge difference when it comes to getting the right person for the job, trust me, I’ve been there!

 

For more guidance and specific tips for your situation, that’s where my coaching can be even more useful – so contact me today, let’s chat and see how we can work together and get your processes and procedures in place, so that you can #BOSSUPANDRISE and be that #CEOHUSTLER you’ve always dreamed of!

4 Simple Tips to Help Entrepreneurs Get The Sleep They Need for Success

4 Simple Tips to Help Entrepreneurs

Get The Sleep They Need for Success

Start Your Own Business

By fAVIOLA VALENCIA-ARANDA

Are you losing sleep due to your small business goals? Well, you could be derailing your efforts to reach those goals faster. Sleep is crucial for your health and wellness — and even your success. So, here is how you can help yourself get more of it.

 

Your Tech Could Be Keeping You Up

 

Being a successful small business owner often means being attached to your laptop and smartphone. But if you make a habit of bringing those devices into your bedroom, you could be disrupting your sleep quality. The bright blue light emitted from cell phones, computers, tablets, and televisions prevents your brain from producing the melatonin needed to fall asleep soundly and stay there for enough time. Getting those devices out of your room is a good first step to enhancing your sleep levels. While most tech should be banished from your bedroom, some smart devices are actually made to help you sleep. If you have problems getting your business to-do list out of your head, using a noise machine can help calm your brain, or you could look into a vibrating alarm clock so you are not jolted out of your dreams by noise.

“Selfcare is so important for the daily and business life, so take care of yourself, we only have 1 life, so let’s take care of it the best we can! – Faviola”

Quality Sleep Is Key to Your Success

In business, a busy schedule is prized. However, if your schedule as an entrepreneur is getting in the way of your sleep hygiene, you could be impacting your success.

 

You need sleep in order to focus on getting your business up and running and to keep yourself healthy enough to do your best every day. So, freeing up some of that work time for more sleep can actually be more beneficial for your business.

 

If bouts of insomnia are keeping you up, know that sleeplessness is common among entrepreneurs too. All the emotions and thoughts that are racing through your head can make it hard to wind down, even when you schedule to sleep. If you cannot get the seven to eight hours you need every night, at least take steps to improve your sleep quality. Keep your bedroom cool and dark so you can get the most out of the rest you do get.

 

Your Night Routine Plays a Critical Role

Even if you get your tech out of the bedroom and schedule time for sleep, it still may not be enough.

 

Your nighttime habits before bedtime affect your sleep quality as much as what you do in your bedroom. Try winding down your work assignments earlier and getting into bed so that you can get an earlier beginning to your day.

 

If your usual nighttime routine includes checking emails and answering phone calls, you may need to adjust those practices too. In order to get the rest, you need to be successful, you have to guard your personal time.

 

Set out-of-office hours that will give you time to unwind before crawling into bed. Doing so from the start will help you maintain that positive balance between your work and life as you become more successful.

But Your Health Routines Have an Impact Too

The way you care for yourself during the day matters just as much too.

 

For example, many entrepreneurs reach for the most convenient food and beverages to keep themselves going. Before you reach for that high-fat snack, however, you should know that it could end up keeping you awake.

 

More fat and processed foods in your diet can lead to disruptions in necessary sleep processes, as well as digestive issues that can make you too uncomfortable to sleep. An imbalanced gut can lead to an upset stomach, constipation, and other problems that can make it harder to sleep. So, think about meal prepping some healthier options, and also consider getting in daily workouts, which will help you sleep better too.

 

Sleep is not an option, especially if you hope to start and run your own small business. Your brain needs sleep in order to focus and get those crucial business tasks done. So, if you are looking for long-term sleep as an entrepreneur, make sure that better sleep hygiene is listed on your shortlist of life and business goals.
