What His Former Clients & MBA Students
Are Saying About Terry Cornelison...

TJayClevenger
"In my first year [of business], Terry and I sat down and worked through several core ideas like accounting, inventory control, marketing, and employee management. We found solutions that were specific to my business. His knowledge of available resources has been amazing. After more than a decade of economic collapses, a pandemic, and several flooding/wildfire years, my competition has changed but I am still in business and using the strategies Terry and I set into action years ago. Thanks Terry!"

"It was such a privilege to work alongside and learn from someone like Terry at such an early stage. It was a formative experience that put me on my current path: from my undergraduate studies at Wharton to 4 years as a consultant at the Boston Consulting Group, one of the leading global consulting firms, to my current studies at Harvard Business School."

"Being new to owning and operating a cafe, it was a great experience to have someone in the early stages to bounce ideas off of. His guidance was priceless and Terry was so easy to work with, he really put us at ease about our ideas of what would work or would be better done another way."

This program will prepare you to launch your business, or to seek funding to launch your business by the end of 8 weeks. 

And yes, it is possible for many, if not most businesses to actually open for business within this 8-week period.  But, even though you will be ready, there are situations where opening your doors may be delayed.  

For example, if your business requires special permits or certifications, licenses or safety inspections, or any other official approvals, your opening may be delayed.  Or, if you are building or renovating your place of business. Or, if you will be ordering and installing special equipment. Or, if your employees will require specialized training.

You will need to allow time for these situations.

For most businesses, 8 weeks will be ample time for taking care of the legal requirements for registering and operating your business.  If you are in a specialized field that requires background checks and other security clearances, you will need to allow time for these.

We have a hassle free 30-day money back guarantee.  If for any reason you decide to discontinue the Bootcamp, just let us know and we will give you a complete refund, no questions asked.
