Author(s): Levesque, Ryan
Starting a business is hard. Most people fail, but it doesn't have to be that way. Of the millions of people who start their own small businesses, about 20 percent fail in their first year and 50 percent fail in their fifth year. While many factors can affect a business's success, one central issue can doom it from the get-go- asking what instead of who.
It may be instinctive to ask "What should I sell?" or "What should I build?" when, instead, you should be asking who. As in, who should I serve? The who is the foundation upon which all other things can solidly be built.
In his #1 national best-seller Ask, Ryan Levesque, founder and CEO of The ASK Method Company, shared the method he used to successfully enter 23 different markets online. But he didn't reveal how he chose those markets in the first place. In Choose, Levesque demystifies that secret process, taking you through his three-tiered method to brainstorm, test, and choose the right market so you can find the right who that needs to be served and ultimately decide what business to start.
You will learn to evaluate your business idea in an iterative traffic-light framework of red (no), yellow (caution), and green (yes) and use worksheets, checklists, tests, and other bonus materials to support you through your entrepreneurial journey. Levesque will transform your approach to choosing your market and starting your business, taking you from feeling overwhelm and uncertainty to exuding clarity and confidence.
