1. Join the Launch27 Facebook group

3. Decide where you want to have your local service business

Whether in your home town or remote start planning.

4. Start establishing your brand

Get a website (purchase a theme if you want to get off the ground fast), create a brand (don’t spend a crazy amount of money or time on this but also don’t skimp on making your brand clean, memorable and unique)… and lastly, get some kind of business management tool. Of course we recommend Launch27, but get something that has both online booking and team scheduling and dispatch and you will be set in terms of management.

5. Next, follow the path

Read Rohan’s infamous Reddit post, read this post (by me) and join Rohan’s latest ride along (and mastermind group that’s coming soon to get you ahead of the game!).

Lastly, here is a pro tip from our favorite entrepreneur himself…

“There’s really no reason why you can’t make this your greatest year ever! And one of the things I like to do is to make a list of all the things that I want to accomplish, then a column with all the habits I need to develop to accomplish those things. Then, start implementing those habits in month 1. That way when month 2 hits, it’s already smooth sailing!!!”
