Welcome to Smart From Scratch
How to Find a Winning Business Idea & Land Your First Customer
Smart From Scratch is a hands-on, comprehensive course that enables you to develop a business idea, validate it, and determine if that idea is viable to pursue. Learn how to test whether or not there’s an audience for your business idea.
All business ideas need validation, even my new online course. That’s why I launched Smart from Scratch to a select number of founding students in late 2016.
The founding students helped shape the course content with their amazing feedback. Now, thanks to them, Smart From Scratch is tested, validated, and ready for your business idea!
Why I Created Smart From Scratch
Hi, I’m Pat, creator of Smart Passive Income. I’ve both failed and succeeded in building products and businesses. I’ve poured these experiences into the Smart From Scratch course to give you insight into the business strategies that truly work from start to finish.
A Business Crash Course (Without The Crashing)
Smart From Scratch was designed for your success. Each and every facet of the course, from its length to action items, was carefully planned to serve that goal.
- The course will re-open on June 5, 2017, with registration closing again at midnight PDT on Friday, June 9.
- Course length: How long the course takes is up to you, with three distinct stages to get you from idea to business.
- Action items, including target audience research, network engagement, and prospect follow-up.
- Regular opportunities to provide your honest feedback about the course.
Success From The Ground Up
Across three distinct stages, you’ll be treated to a highly detailed rundown of what it takes to…
- Find an idea that works for you, even if you don’t know where to start.
- Define and refine your business idea so that you move forward and test the best, most viable option.
- Develop and execute a plan for reaching out to people interested in learning more about your idea.
- Create the proper channels for following up with prospects and pre-selling your product or service. My goal is to help you get your first customer!
Making Your Impact
Smart From Scratch was designed for students looking to make an impact in the business world but may not have the tools to help get them there.
You are an aspirer. You yearn to make your mark on the world. You may have an idea for a business or an amazing product. You may not have an idea, and that’s why this course was created. Sometimes it’s difficult to figure out how to come up with and follow through on an idea. Smart From Scratch will help you follow through.
