Sorry to hear about your employment woes.
What I tell my clients to do as the first two steps in the startup sequence are:
1. Get your personal financial house in order. Determine exactly how much you will need (monthly) to survive. Take action to reduce that amount if possible.
2. Prepare a basic financial projection for the business. It doesn`t have to include every minute detail but it should tell you:
a. How much capital will be needed to start the business
b. How long it will be before the business reaches break even
c. When it can pay you enough to cover your personal needs (item 1)
d. How much additional capital will be required to bridge the gaps.
Given the above information, you`ll then need to decide how to acquire the necessary capital. (your capital strategy) and what you will need to do to prepare to acquire it (get Capital Ready)
If you want to discuss the specifics of your situation, send me a PM or contact me directly.
