The Way To Get Started Is To Quit Talking And Begin Doing

The IIMFL Entrepreneurship Program assists entrepreneurs reach their potential through a simple four week process reasonably priced at only $99 per week (for four weeks).  Each week during the four week process, a Financial Literacy Educator will teach (in-person or on-line) the Educational Topic of the week and assist you in implementing what you've learned.

FOUR WEEK PROCESS DESCRIBED

Week One:

  • Educational Topic:  Planning For A Successful Business
  • Implementation Step:  Create a lender-compliant business plan with financial projections using an easy to use, state of the art, cloud-based platform.

Week Two:

  • Educational Topic:  Building Business Credit
  • Implementation Step:  Develop an optimized Personal Financial Statement and credit profiles for optimization (including the creation of a strong business credit profile, i.e, Dun & Bradstreet PAYDEX score allowing the business to access credit under the EIN versus SSN of the owner(s)).

Week Three:

  • Educational Topic:  Financial Management
  • Implementation Step:  Complete a Financial Needs Analysis and establish a long-term financial plan.

Week Four:

  • Educational Topic:  Banking & Money
  • Implementation Step:  Create a "Capital Match" to identify the best source(s) of capital based upon each participant's unique circumstances.  Examples of available capital include affordable SBA loans, investment capital (money that doesn't have to be paid back like loans do), and hundreds of other options.
