Turning dreams into reality
November 22, 2019
By Samantha Goodman
Dreams – they can surface in a night’s sleep, be life-long made, or spark during a conversation. Everyone has a dream, but what you do with the dream is what sets you apart from others. Whether you choose to let that dream stay a dream, or to make your dream a reality, is up to you, and turning dreams into reality is what CO.STARTERS does.
CO.STARTERS is a ten-week program, hosted by Red Cedar, that equips aspiring entrepreneurs with the insights, relationships, knowledge, and toolsets needed to see their ideas to fruition. Red Cedar invites all entrepreneurs looking to launch a new product or service to join the program and let us help you build your dream.
Each week you will be working with a small and supportive group of like-minded people to develop and fine-tune your idea. An experienced entrepreneur will facilitate each program, providing you with a deeper understanding of how to successfully create a sustainable business based on your idea. You will learn how to know and understand yourself – your assumptions, working styles, and what obstacles personally get in the way of your success. You will learn how to know and understand your customers, the people who will support your dream and make it successful. You will learn how to market your dream and build the model to scale while strengthening your business structure. Then you will discover the bottom line, how you will profit or break-even, and how you will account for growth. Finally, you will plan for the future, learning how to set goals for the next 30, 60, and 90 days and be able to repeat this process for additional dreams. During the last session, you will share your dream with the other starters in the cohort, as you hear what they’ve been developing during the process, too.
If you’re creative, community-minded, and serious about turning your passion into a sustainable business, we want you. In the end, we’re all dreamers, so why not turn that dream into something you can work on every day and create a success out of it.
