Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
why should i use bizguidela?
BizGuideLA is a tool and as long as it is useful, you should use it. My goal is to share business tools to get your business started. Take that idea and execute on it, the topics will cover almost everything you need to get your business up and running. You'll have to add the extra steps to customize it to your own unique business. Most sites will have all the information scattered (i.e. individual product/service sites) or not mention the current tools out there (i.e. basic business plan site, high-level generic business information), and now you have a solution - BizGuideLA!
bizguidela sounds kind of boring, why not something cool like apple or nike or starbucks?
I wanted to get this site up and running. Even with a cool name, it would be pretty useless if it is not helpful. Plus, all the cool names were taken and kind of expensive to buy. It would not make business sense for me to do so.
i am an existing business with employees, would bizguidela still benefit me?
Yes. If you go through the different topics, I am sure that you are missing a few. Plus, it never hurts to refresh on strategy and leadership skills.
i notice there are book recommendations - ain't nobody got time for that - can't you just give me the gist of it?
Sure, for a price. Come to think of it, that can be a great service to offer in the future. We can take a week off, read the book, and write a book summary for you. Recommendation: it's probably more useful to have some skin in the game and do it yourself.
what are some future projects that bizguidela is worKing on?
Shhhh....it's a secret. Just kidding. I hope to offer a service for entrepreneurs that truly have no time or even a customized package.
do i need to start a business in the city of los angeles or the county of los angeles?
The beauty of the tools and topics discussed here is that it can work pretty much anywhere. I focus on LA county because I want our communities and cities to thrive. I believe Southern California is a growth hub, especially with all the exciting things coming to Los Angeles. (i.e. World Cup, Olympics, etc.)
what's the weirdest business pitched to you?
what is your favorite business movie of all time?
The LEGO Batman Movie - the subtle business lessons taught onscreen are not taught in any of the top business schools. Go watch it again if you need confirmation!
i'm confused - is business serious or business fun?
It's a little of both. You'll soon discover that the business tools presented are real game changers. At the same time, business needs to be fun - otherwise, what is the whole point of working? Even keeping this business updated has to be a little fun to keep me typing nightly and over the weekends.
if i need someone to guide me through until i start my business, do you have that service?
In due time. For the time being, I am looking for qualified professionals to either refer clients to or have them advertise on my site. If you are interested in being on a directory to receive potential referrals, please sign up here.
