Serious About Starting a New Business?

Let’s get you going right now in a private, 1-on-1 workshop with our Team.

If This Sounds Familiar, You're in the Right Place...

🎯 Our 1-on-1 Startup Workshop is all about getting You from the “Couch” to being the CEO of your own business.

In Our Startup Workshop, You Will...

Here’s How It Works

Our 1-on-1 Startup Workshop happens all on Zoom and email collaboration with our Team. When you register, you’ll be able to choose a date and time that works best for your schedule.

Once we’re all on Zoom, we’ll take a few minutes to introduce ourselves. We’ll ask you to tell us about your business idea and where you are in the “startup” process.

Normally, our Startup Workshop lasts for 2 hours. But just in case we need more time, we can extend our call.

We’ll also be there with you throughout the following week to help you tweak and customize your business model (via email and direct messaging).

We’ll give you a brief overview of the specific process that we’ll be using with you to map out and validate your business model.

It’s simple, powerful, and effective and revolves around finding one way for your business to generate enough Net Profit for you to be motivated and committed to putting in the work necessary to transform your dream into reality.

We’ll explain how the process works and why it’s important. Then, we’ll walk you through a real example of this process at work—taken directly from one of our current business coaching clients (who has offered to share this information).

Next, we’ll take you through the same process with your idea to flesh out your business model, according to your current thinking.

We’ll set up and customize three simple, but powerful tools that will enable you to test and modify your model in real time.

You’ll own everything we create together so that you can continue to modify and refine your business model until you are ready to launch.

Now it’s time to “roll-up our sleeves” and actually go through every aspect of your business model in detail to make sure that it’s grounded in reality and has potential for success.

Together, we’ll use the tools we created to find at least one way that you can start your business with the potential to generate enough money to replace your current income and cover your expenses. 

This will include determining exactly how much money it will take to launch and operate your business until it becomes profitable (and, hopefully, puts you on track to making your first $1 million).

Finally, we’ll review where you are in the process of preparing to launch your business and discuss options for how to move forward.

Now you have the tools and confidence to truly take control of your business journey, continually refining and tweaking your model, as needed.

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

"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!"
T Jay Clevenger
Owner of Paradise Creek Bicycles
"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."
Mitchell Tang, MBA
Doctoral Student at Harvard Business School / Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS)
"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."
Carolyn Suffield
Owner of Carolyn's Cafe (Dayton, Washington)
