You want to set up your business, but you don’t know where to start ?  You have a good idea… but you don’t know how to go further ?

 

Then, you are at the right place !

In one day, you will set up the foundations of your future company.

 

Ask the good questions first

 

1. Jump from a mere idea to a real business project

First, let’s ask a few questions, to be sure we understand each other :

  • what’s an idea ?
  • What’s a business idea ?
  • what’s a project ?
  • what’s a business project ?
  • how to go from an idea to a project ?
  • from the project to the business ?
  • how much time will it take ?
  • what are the steps I have to go through ?
  • which are the tools I can use to save time and money ?

You will find your own answers to all these questions and many more with the unique tools we’ll provide you !

2. Define your “core business” with the Winning Triad Technique ©

All experts will tell you, successful entrepreneurs built their success on three dimensions :

  1. Passion
  2. Expertise (or excellency)
  3. Profitability

Find out which are these three dimensions exactly for you and your project and define your core business !

3. Define your personal goals and values with the List of 100

To focus your energy even more on your project, here is a powerful tool : the list of 100.  It is a well known creativity tool, but I have adapted it to the mind mapping technique to get even more out of it !

This practice will give you a unique direction and you’ll spare time and energy by maintaining your initial goals and avoid to get distracted from your main route.

This way, you’ll give yourself guidelines for several years.

go for success !

4. Explore all the dimensions of your project with the Rules of 9

To design or analyse a project, you have to ask the good questions first.  I gathered for you 9 fundamental questions to explore every dimension of your project. I organized them into a mind map to provide a powerful and complex analysis matrix.

Thanks to this matrix you will :

  • identify the known points of your project
  • track down the remaining of the unanswered questions
  • define realistic goals and deadlines
  • visualize the stage of progress of your business set up

 


5. Build up your Business Plan Structure !

  • What is a Business Plan ?
  • What can I do with a Business Plan ?
  • What’s the difference between a Business Plan and a Financial Plan ?
  • Who is this Business Plan for ?

Together, we will answer all these questions and I will give you models and templates so you’ll be able to build up your own business plan, adapted to your personal needs !  The business plan that will be the best control and communication tool for your future business !

Uniqueness of Service

Each Individual is Unique

Stichting Lingua Franca Foundation realise the importance of  each client’s individuality and uniqueness. We acknowledge the existence of the client’s own specific needs and demands. We also acknowledge that each client needs to take total control on the development of his/her need(s) through out the entire course and everybody has his/her own pace to tackle the need(s) according to the level of understanding and acceptance.

Walking through the sand

We want the client to know that we actually understand their needs and the manner of wanting their needs to be fulfilled. Face-to-face interaction is one of the basic methods we use to penetrate the client’s true wish. Some people are afraid of spilling out what is truly in their hearts; thinking that others might make a mockery out of them. Some even think their needs and demands are too impossible to achieve. We are here to break that barrier of endless fear. We are here to assure them dreams can be realities if you work hard to achieve it. Dreams are not impossible. It is solely up to YOU to make the impossible possible.

Tailored Made Programme

The services offered by the Stichting Lingua Franca Foundation are specifically designed around YOUR NEEDS. Yes, YOUR NEEDS. We will propose to you a programme/service/workshop/course specially for YOU. A tailored made programme to solely suit YOUR EXACT NEEDS.  Considering all factors and wishes from YOU the client, the Foundation will evaluate seriously all levels of the individual’s potential and achievement. From there, we will create a course that you are comfortable with to enable you to  finally achieve your goals.

Personal Development and Performance

She-conomy : women, business, comsumption and marketing…

It is the first video I translated for the Lingua Franca Academy and I wanted to show it to you because it is very representative of a new generation of peculiarly lively entrepreneurs : Women !

In this clip, they talk about 70% of business being started by women.  In the last training courses that I coordinated in Belgium, figures were closer to 80-85% of women.  Women are now a new force you have to count with !that matters !

This video, initially published on the Blog She-conomy, has been produced by Stephanie Holland, woman entrepreneur and founder of the marketing agency  Holland & Holland.   She knows what she’s talking about.

I did the English transcription and the French translation with the open source translation website http://www.dotsub.com.  Translation of documents, including videos, is one of the Lingua Franca Academy’s activities.  It corresponds to one of our goals : promoting languages and intercultural exchanges.
