The 1k start challenge

Ready to start your online business?


Want to start an online business?

According to a 2013 survey by Business News Daily 48% of Americans want to be an entrepreneur. But in my experience, about 1% of those people are willing to do the work necessary to be a successful entrepreneur.

That is why there are so many "serial" entrepreneurs. They serially start new ventures only to shelve them when the excitement and luster wear off. Or they fail to become financially viable. Almost every entrepreneur I have met has the next billion dollar idea. How many never even make $1,000?

And therein lies the idea behind "The 1k Start" challenge.

I challenge you to start a brand new online business and see if you can grow it to a mere $1,000 in revenue. Because here is the thing. If you can get enough momentum to make a grand then your idea has legs and you have some cash in your pocket. 

All you have to do to get started is fill out the form below. Don't worry we promise to only send you useful messages. 

The good news is that you aren't going to be alone. We will be providing you information and resources over the next few weeks via an email course to help you succeed, including tips on how to work through starting the company and some common pitfalls.

P.S. By the way, if you aren't interested in having your own online business that is ok. The 1kStart challenge is still a great way to get your idea off the ground. However, if you are more interested in launching your own startup business (especially one that will need outside funding) then you should consider applying to be part of the SouthFound startup incubator program.
