🎙️ Listen to the episode:
Episode 127: 9 Stage Small Business Roadmap: A step-by-step plan for what comes next in your business (FS127)

We just released something inside Fizzle that will forever change the way you build your business. (Is that a little strong?)

Ok, let's lighten it up a bit: the Fizzle Small Business Roadmap guides you through every step of your business, from dream to plan to execution, iteration, quitting your job and picking out the private island that's right for your unique needs.

Got a little carried away there at the end, but we are so proud and excited to launch the Roadmap because getting your business out of your head and into the world in a way that pays for itself and more can be extremely difficult…

… and this Roadmap will guide you every step of the way.

So, we wanted to walk you through the roadmap here on the podcast, sharing all 9 stages and a handful of big insights along the way (like the business pitch in a sentence we get into).

No matter where you are on your business you're going to pick up something important from this episode. So, without further ado, please dive right in and enjoy!

The Roadmap:
