The Only 4 Things You Need To Setup Your Business This Week

The Only 4 Things You Need To Setup Your Business This Week

October 14, 2023
Assalamualaikum!

When it comes to getting your idea out there in the world, we tend to overcomplicate things unnecessarily!

I have met so many dreamers who’ve been dreaming about starting a business and haven’t gotten around to it. While it’s cute to delay your dream for a few weeks or a couple of months…but YEARS?! Not cool.

And it gets worse if you’re thinking about having an online business every day but always seem to have a list of reasons (*cough*excuses 👀) to delay.

If you’re in that boat right now, allow today’s newsletter to help you kickstart!

Look – if you want to do it, what are you waiting for? It’s not as complicated as you’re making it in your head. Seriously.

Here are all the 4 things you’ll need to get started:

 

⛳ You need to register your business as a sole proprietorship or limited liability company (LLC).

 

Here’s how you can do this in 3 simple steps:

  1. Get Articles of Incorporation (you can ask your local lawyer to draft this for you or get it online)
  2. Take it to a bank and get a bank account for your business
  3. Setup a payment processor to collect money from clients (you can use Paypal/ Stripe/Payoneer) with your business bank account (that you created in step 2)

 

⛳ You need a business idea

 

Your business idea includes the following:

  1. Who – person you can help
  2. What – problem you can solve for them
  3. How – method of solving that problem
  4. *Brownie points* Why – do you want to solve it? [mission; belief/personal story/ passion]

 

Here’s a worksheet for you to fill out and discover your best fit niche based on your skills, knowledge and experiences. I’ve also added some examples for you to learn from. Enter your email in the form below for me to send it to you.

 

⛳ You need a name for your business and a domain

 

Once you have nailed your idea, it’s time to decide a name for your business.
You can use this naming framework that I’ve used for all my program names as well as company name:

Muslim Empowerment – Template – Business Naming Frameworks

And once you have a name, you need to get a domain for that name. A domain is basically a website address, in other words, the name linking to your website.

For example: www.MuslimEmpowerment.com is the domain for Muslim Empowerment.

You can get the domain through any one of the hosting platforms that exist, such as GoDaddy, BlueHost, SiteGround, etc. I’ve been using Siteground hosting for all 5 of my websites since 2018.

 

⛳ You need to set up social profiles for your business

 

Your social profiles publicly show that you’re in business, and are not hiding away in a dark corner of your website.

Your social profiles also build trust with strangers on the internet and provide links to people for contacting you.

You can create a 1 line bio describing who you are and what you do, and then copy that on all the relevant platforms. You may need to modify/ adjust the length according to the platform rules.

You can pick any 1-3 platforms to set up your profiles: Linkedin, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, X –

Use the following formula to write your social profile bios:

I help Ideal Client Avatar (Who), get Desired Outcome (What), without Biggest Objection/ Pain.

For example: I help executives reduce stress and free up their time by delegating with authority to their subordinates, without frustration/ anxiety.

You can check out profiles of successful coaches in different industries to see how it’s done. Here’s an example of a Muslim women fitness coach:

While you’ll set up the profiles for a few different platforms, once you start creating content, you can just pick ONE platform to be active on. You need one active platform to show new people visiting your social media profile that you’re active and your business is active.

You don’t need to be active on each platform or you’ll spread yourself out too thin.

 

Your Action Step:

 

To recap, here are your action steps for setting up your business:

  • You need to register your business as a sole proprietorship or limited liability company (LLC).
  • You need a business idea
  • You need a name for your business and a domain
  • You need to set up social profiles for your business

 

I hope this was helpful and you’ll be setting up your business asap without overthinking everything!
