Starting up

Starting a business has traditionally been an expensive proposition. I remember when I, along with a partner, started a real estate agency in New York back in 1985 and each of us had to borrow $20,000 against our home for a total of $40,000 to cover start-up costs, office furniture & equipment as well as office rental and contingency costs to pay for the first few months of expenses until the business started to produce income.

Fast forward to September 2020 I just went to the SBA (Small Business Administration) website and looked at some of the advise being offered to prospective business owners about the cost of starting a business in today’s economy. What I found was a worksheet reflecting estimated costs of starting a pizza shop. The estimated costs just to open the pizzeria doors was $9,850 and the monthly expense budget was estimated at $9,125.

Back in 1985 neither I or my partner expected to get a return on our investment within the first 6 months and that did not happen, but we expected to break even during that period and that did not happen either – although our break-even point came a few months later (about 9 months instead). Admittedly I am not very familiar with the pizzeria business so I can only guesstimate how long it would take for the owner of that type of business to break even. However, in neither case would that break-even point be within the same week or even 2 weeks and that is the point of this article.

Getting ready to make way!


Since 1985 and the advent of a new generation of leadership as well as the Web, which has sped up sales and marketing activity, break-even and ROI scenarios have changed. That is because new leadership and a new philosophical approach merged with an established, proven, re-imagined business model to present an opportunity for business-minded individuals to start a business (distributorship) with an investment as low as $995 and recoup that initial investment in as short a period as 2 weeks if not sooner. We guarantee it when you follow the plan.
