Name Picking Paralysis? Don’t Overcomplicate Your Business Setup (FS326)

If you’ve tuned into the Fizzle Show, it means that you might actually be doing something you care about. Maybe you’re looking for sovereignty, autonomy but also for more fun. There could be something inside of you that just screams for more independence and creativity. There is a lot of potential and opportunity in life – remember, you are not painted into a corner, you are free to do whatever you want, the things that you love.

Often in life it feels like there is such momentum, such force that pulls you into a certain lifestyle, but you don’t have to conform. Who says it has to be that way? A lot of people are just going through the motions while others are realizing that this is not a mode they have to keep operating in.

Some people are coming up with new ideas and finding new ways to make a life for themselves and their families. And you’ll hear this a lot coming from us: published is better than perfect. It’s better to just do the thing, even if it’s not perfect, and get yourself out there on the journey toward starting your own business.

In this episode we’re talking about a specific phase on our Fizzle Roadmap – SETUP. We’ve been talking about and breaking apart all the phases of business over the last few episodes, and highlighting this one aspect in our conversation today. We also talk extensively about naming your business, how to go about registering it, getting all your legal ducks in a row, which kind of tasks to start the day off with, and a whole bunch more – so don’t miss out on this one!
