Dear Fellow Boomer Entrepreneur,
In case you haven't been introduced to me already somewhere else on the Bizstarters site, my name is Jeff Williams. As Founder and Chief Coach for Bizstarters, for more than twenty years I've experienced the joy that our clients exhibit when they start to enjoy the freedom and reward of running their own businesses. Do you believe that you have the skills and seasoned life experience to successfully transtition from the corporate world to the world of owning your own business? I think that you do or you wouldn't be visting this website.
Having a Fun & Rewarding Business That
Exudes Your Passion and Joy IS Within Your Reach
- The Struggle Part is 100% Optional
I'm sure you have your own challenging circumstances as a corporate manager, here are a few of mine...seeing my promotional path shutdown by a federal discrimination lawsuit against my employer in the the 70's...receiving a bonus check one week and a totally unexpected pink slip a month later as my employer laid off the entire sales team in the early 80's...having to pay my own health insurance in order to make the move from the Fortune 100 to an entrepreneurial, family-owned business.
Through all the challenging times what has sustained me has been the memory of a very fun and lucrative summer as the ten-year-old owner of a grass mowing service in my hometown in Ohio.
I tell you this because you also very likely have previous experience as a teenage entrepreneur. It's time to let your mind return to the joy of that experience and to bask in the sense of independence you felt having your own money.
I've designed the Ultimate Boomer Business Start-Up Guide to give you the quickest and smoothest path possible to getting your business open, so that you can start feeling the joy once again of doing work you're proud of...and unlike your teenage years being very well paid for what you do!
Using An Easy-To-Follow System To Quickly Launch Your Business Is The Key To Maximum Enjoyment And Reward
I think that we've both been "around the track" often enough in life to know that wanting something good to happen is not enough to make it happen...you need a plan!
Well, you know you need to take care of all the legal details, whatever they are. And, you need to be able to find and sell customers. You probably even know that it's smart to build a support team. Then there's figuring out how to get the best price for what you need to buy. And what about that accounting software - QuickBooks is it? Now, don't forget to create a plan to give outstanding customer service. And, somewhere you read that it's a good idea to put all these details in writing in a business plan.
Hold on there a moment! What if I told you there was a "no-hassle" way to assure that your business is successful? That you can share proven, insider advice and have a business start-up expert at your side, so you never have to guess what to do next; always feel that someone is there to back you up...well let me tell you how.

Demystify marketing by using the seven-step
in the Planning Workbook.
We know that the essential core of any successful new business is the marketing strategy. Conveniently presented in our sturdy spiral-bound workbook, the Marketing Strategy Planning Workshops make up Decision 11 of the 25 planning decisions presented in the Ultimate Boomer Business Start-up Planning Workbook.
The Planning Workshops include:
Describe what you will sell - This may seem very obvious to you, but is it as clear to your desired customers? We have you go through a checklist of business styles to assure that you are clear on your business description.
State your marketing objectives - You use a simple arithmetic calculation to come up with your desired output from your marketing and selling efforts. You're also asked to describe non-monetary goals, such as being interviewed for an article during your first year in business.
State what you want your prospects to do - Many new entrepreneurs do a pretty good job of describing what they have to offer. The key to getting sales is telling your prospects what to do with your offer. We show you how.
Describe your competitive advantage - No matter how unique you think your business idea is, your prospective customers will be making a comparison before they buy. We show you how to accentuate your unique competitive advantage.
Describe your desired customer - If you can't clearly describe your desired customer accurately, how will know if some show up at your business? We show you how to use your experience and a bit of inexpensive research to create an accurate customer description.
Describe your selling message - People like your desired customers are in a hurry today, particularly when they visit your company's website. You need to tell a short, but compelling story about why they should care about your product or service, or they're on to something else. We show you how to get them to stop and read your message.
Describe the specific action steps you will use to communicate your selling message - This is the really fun part of running your own business, because there are hundreds of different ways to promote your business and you can certainly find several that fit your personality well. We show you how to create a promotional budget and calendar.
Earn your "small business MBA"

I know that we are helping many of our start-up clients launch their very first business all on their own.

Business Blueprint CD.
Coordinated to the Ultimate Boomer Planning Workbook, the Business Blueprint CD helps you organize your business planning decisions into a highly readable narrative, perfect for working with a partner, sharing with others and using as on ongoing guide throughout your first year in business. Written in Word for Windows, the Business Blueprint planning outline allows you to easily revise your narrative as you go along.

Your Creativity Is Much More Likely To Flow If You Have Confidence That You Have a Reliable Plan
The Ultimate Boomer Business Start-Up Guide
is Built On Principles Taught In Business School,
But With a Strong Focus On Creating Joy In Your Life.
As you'll see from my personal antecdotes included in the Ultimate Boomer Planning Workbook, I really love being my own boss.
But, quite honestly part of this sense of joy derives from being able to make a good living doing what I love.
And making a very good living financially demands that I combine every technique I learned in MBA school along with the results of more than twenty years of "on-the-street" experience of running three businesses.
The key to true happiness as a Boomer entrepreneur is to start with your passion and use our proven process to turn it into profit.
When you combine the power of the Ulitmate Boomer Business Start-Up Planning Workbook, Business Blueprint CD, How-To Management Guide, Podcast CD and, of course, attendance in my Business Booster telegroups, you will find that:

- You will achieve your financial goals and more because you'll stop wasting time on tasks that miss the mark.
The key to growing a small business today is building a process to achieve repeat sales and referral sales. With smoothly functioning operational and marketing systems, you will be able to focus your attention on the world-class customer service you need to achieve the "2 Rs".
- You will proceed with confidence because you are very clear on what you're selling, to whom, why they will buy and how much money you can make selling them. You'll also know that all required legal work has been done. You'll be to take pride in your professionally-designed logo and eye-catching website. And you'll understand the whole language of business finance and have all of your key financial information stored in a powerful accounting software program.

Ultimate Boomer Business Start-Up Guide Reviewby Reba Collins, Co-Owner of Internet Marketing Boomer.com
Sometime in the last quarter of last year I had the pleasure of running across the Biz Starters website and The Ultimate Boomer Business Start-Up Guide by Jeff Williams. I asked Jeff if I could promote his product on my website and he was kind enough to give me a review copy of his start-up guide. So that he wouldn't have to mail me the physical product, I read a PDF copy on my computer.
I have read a lot of business start-up books in my lifetime and I have to say, this is the most complete one I've ever seen. And having actually started a brick and mortar business myself, I feel qualified to judge whether or not a book on how to start a business is complete or not. Honestly, why Jeff named this 222-page guide a "Boomer" guide is beyond me, as it is filled with comprehensive checklists and uses a decision tree approach to help anyone (not just Boomers) get through the complicated steps of starting a business.
In reading this book I liked how the author led the readers through decisions and based on those decisions, he led them to do different steps. For instance, if it was decided that a rented office space was needed, then lease review, review of prices for comparable space, and even attorney review was suggested. If home office was the choice, regulations for home businesses, space consideration, what address to use for business, and whether or not the type of business was conducive to residential areas was considered. This level of deliberation and forethought was suggested for every decision discussed in the book.
The other thing I liked about the way the guide was written was that the author talked about his own personal experiences and how they related to the topic being discussed, however, he didn't bore his audience with tons of personal dribble. He contained it in a section at the end of each Action Step so it was easy to skip if the reader wasn't interested.
The first section of the book covers setting-up the organization of the business. Jeff helps aspiring new business owners through a vast sea of decisions, like whether to locate in a home or rented office, how to choose a name and identity for the business, how to handle the legal aspects of setting up a new business, and how to organize an office.
The second section of the book includes the Action Steps to take in preparing to market and sell a product or service. Preparing a marketing plan, how to set-up a website, and deciding how customer service will be handled is covered among other things. Again, the information is very thorough, and the full scope of every topic is covered.
It started to come to my attention in this section that throughout the book the author suggests lots of websites, products, and information about where to find tools and help needed to complete his action steps. I love that the information is given so the reader knows where to go, however, I also hope that Jeff plans to do continuous updating of the book in regard to that information. For example, Microsoft FrontPage is one of the recommended products to use for building a website and Microsoft no longer sells this product, it has been replaced by another product.
Section three of the book talks about money. In my opinion, next to sales and marketing, finances is the most important thing to know about in a business but is most neglected by small or solo business owners. The author covers this area very well, all the way from setting up the company bank account and what to look for in a bank to setting up the accounting software. One of the most important things covered in this section is how to estimate start-up costs and find the money for start-up, but even more importantly, how to prepare an estimate of the expenses, cash flow and profit/loss for the first year in business is covered. The book explains very well how to go through preparing this information and Jeff gives very good tips for cash management.
The book recommends using Quickbooks for the accounting and makes some very specific recommendations on how to set-up the office processes. These recommendations will work well for a very small start-up but if the business being considered is much larger than just a few people, I think other software and different processes should be considered. However, I feel the author was writing for the very small business and that's why these recommendations were made.
The last section is about running the business operations. Here Jeff covers setting up the phone system, production system, and hiring employees. The telecommunications section is good. It covers things to consider in regard to mobile phones, land line, and fax. I know email is not considered telecommunications but I feel it needs to be discussed somewhere in the book and it never was. With more and more transactions being handled by email and the fax machine becoming a dinosaur, it seems the space allocated to how to handle fax communication would have been better used discussing how email will be handled. In today's business world, this can make a huge difference in the perception a customer has about the level of customer service a business provides.
The book closes with more fantastic information for hiring employees and running a business. Again, thoroughness is foremost. There are tips for deciding whether to hire regular employees or contractors, tips for reducing personnel costs, information about government requirements for hiring personnel and much more. The very last section is about setting up your production processes and running your business with tons of information from a seasoned professional.
All in all the The Ultimate Boomer Business Start-Up Guide is the ultimate business guide and not just for Boomers. There were only a couple of things I saw in the book that could actually be improved. I do feel the 10-week timeline presented is a bit long, but since planning a business start-up can't be done on a linear timeline, 10-weeks could be about average. I guess I'm an action person and would never take that long to get everything in place.
Oh and I don't want to forget to mention that as the owner of the The Ultimate Boomer Business Start-Up Guide you'll receive an exclusive offering of more than $150 of discounts for leading online start-up service providers including LogoWorks.com, VistaPrint.com, MyCorporation.com, StockLayouts.com and Intuit.com. And Jeff is continually working on adding new discounts that he sends to all purchasers of the guide.
The The Ultimate Boomer Business Start-Up Guide sells for only $249 and for that small amount of money there's not a better guide. If a new entrepreneur messes up even one thing taught in this book it could cost the new business many, many, times that amount of money. It only makes sense to read the guide first. And if you use the discounts that come with it, you'll get that money back and then some.
If you are considering starting your own business, you MUST consider using the The Ultimate Boomer Business Start-Up Guide as roadmap.
