I know what: let's force all new business start-ups to go straight into debt. No wonder so many new businesses fail if they start in debt!
Most businesses expect you to pay up front before they give you the product. So why do most start-ups do the work first then ask to be paid?
Scare people off with a cash-flow forecast and a list ofthe possible start-up costs.
The quickest way to start a business is to sell something to someone. Don't waste time making it first; go and talk to potential customers.
This is the process that all traditional business support companies teach. It actually slows most new businesses down and scares a lot of businesses out of ever starting
The PopUp Business School approach to starting a business
The PopUp Business School Approach
This can be a daunting prospect for some people who just aren't that literate. It slows most new businesses down and scares off potential
Start by helping people see it is possible and then believe that they can do it. Everything starts with self-belief and confidence.
How do we know what a customer actually wants before we ask them? In most traditional business plans product comes before
If you sell first & take the money up front you are in profit from day one. You never have to go into debt and the energy that 1st sale gives you will drive the business forward.
The only way to know if a customers is actually interested is to ask them to buy; not to interview them. What you have sold; exceed expectations and delight the customer.
Why do we wait months to start selling? The easiest way to get your 2nd customer is to get another one just like your 1st. So if your 1st sale was to a hotel; go and pitch to every other hotel in the area!
It seems that common business sense is that you won't make money in your first year. No wonder so many businesses fail if
you have to wait that long to make a profit!
Business should be fun, if you don't enjoy it then you aren't going to keep doing it. So let's find a way to have fun and make money at the same time.

To put the event on ground floor space to increase foot fall, improve the cloud with router boosters for Wi-Fi, and make announcements and visible advertising about the Popup school to attract shoppers to do a workshop in-between a shop!
Great event please continue to support Alan and the team with this exceptional project.
Thanks to Brent X for letting this lovely bunch of people to have the space, thanks to Microsoft for letting me use surface to first time have a go and I must say I really love it. It is such a great piece of tool for artist. I manage to do 2,3 pieces, Jamie was a the best and most supportive helper, Brent X for giving us chance to find opportunities to maybe find work in the field we love.
More publicity would have got more attendees which would have been beneficial for everyone.
It's a great opportunity to learn skills and gain knowledge. I would definitely do this again!
Thank you for giving me opportunity to attend this free Workshop at Brent Cross, which I not only thoroughly enjoyed but found motivating.
Thank you for giving me an opportunity to attend PopUp course. As a senior curator who is searching a new career path, I find this event incredibly helpful.
I would like to say thank you very much for supporting business start-ups. It has been a great insight and I've gained invaluable knowledge to take my business forward and become a great success.
The youths need more of this in Bristol.
This is an exceptional course and was so valuable to me to create a business.
Great to see you supporting entrepreneurs in this way.
