Just Start Academy

Do Work You Love - Work That Matters - Just Start!

That’s right, just start.

successmapTake small smart steps, but just start.

When are you at your best? What’s that activity or work that you’re made for, that really fits you? Just start doing it, even in small ways. It will heal, renew and energize you. You’ll see more clearly and begin making better choices.

Whether you’re in the midst of a job search,
contemplating a career change,
or thinking of starting your own business…

The world is changing. Employer, employee, customer relations are in flux.

In terms of the marketplace Dan Pink nailed it. It’s a free agent nation!

Managing your career is in your own hands. Most of us were never prepared for this, and we need to learn a few basics to successfully navigate this new market reality.

We’re living in a world of rapid change where the future is uncertain.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to figure out your next steps—quickly, at little to no risk, little to no cost?

There is! We call it the Just Start Academy.

Think of it as a sandbox or playground where you can safely learn how to think like an entrepreneur launching a startup. What’s the startup? Your career and it’s in permanent beta effectively responding to changing market realities.

Once you’ve adopted the startup mindset you can apply it to your evolving career whether that’s in your current job, a career shift, starting your own business or something in-between.

The Just Start Academy is based on the principle developed by the authors of Just Start: Take Action, Embrace Uncertainty, Create the Future .

In fact their book and their online program is an integral part of the program.

In today’s rapidly changing world it’s essential to learn by doing. In the Just Start Academy we’ll follow the act – learn – build model.

We’ll all start in the same place – wanting to learn to think like an entrepreneur and willing to create a learning project to make it real.

Learning Project: Come up with an idea to start generating $250/wk or $1000/mo supplemental income for the sole purpose of learning you CAN do it. The ground rules are that whatever the idea, it needs to be implemented at little to no cost, little to no risk and be something you can walk away from at the end without damage to your relationships or reputation.

The Just Start Academy might be just what you need.

 *  To participate in the course you will need a computer with high-speed internet, a phone for the conference call and a copy of the Just Start book.

The Just Start Academy is intended to be a fun entrepreneurial adventure where you can bring others along.

If you’d like to learn more, shoot us an email and we’ll keep you posted on upcoming conference calls and webinars where we’ll give an overview and answer your questions.

Why a monthly fee? A little incentive to keep you focused on your project. We expect you’ll be generating at least 10 times that and learning valuable lessons for both your career and life.

What’s your next smart step?

We recommend picking up a copy of Just Start: Take Action, Embrace Uncertainty, Create the Future. The authors of Just Start have captured the thinking of how successful people navigate this unpredictability in a few basic principles that inform their mindset. What sets successful entrepreneurs apart is how they think and tackle problems — not what they do. This is key.

The Just Start method will enable you to clarify what you want, navigate uncertainty and achieve the things you care about in life.

In its simplest form, it’s about taking action, learning from what you find and then building on it — then repeating the process.

The program is all about learning to apply basic principles of successful entrepreneurs. Through action you will learn the fundamental, yet often ignored mindsets, skills and practices common to highly successful entrepreneurs that are applicable whenever you face an uncertain future.

The Just Start Academy provides you the learning environment to test and make your own these principles. We feel it’s important to learn by doing (act, learn, build).

Entrepreneur is a job title. Not everyone is cut out to be an entrepreneur, but we can all learn from them how to manage our careers more effectively in this rapidly changing world.
