How to create a million dollar business this weekend (Hint: Chihuahuas)

Most people get paralyzed trying to start a small biz because they "Can't find an idea". Let the fat Sumos of AppSumo show you how....AND we're gonna follow our own advice and build a biz with it (and show you how step-by-step).

My stupid friend asked me:
"Hey you Big Fat Sumo....whatchya doing this weekend...EATING?? hahaha..."

IMMEDIATELY I did two things:
1.) Slapped him in the mouth.

2.) Replied, "I'm starting a business from scratch. By the end of this weekend I'll have a ghetto business launched and collecting data."

This Fat Sumo may not know what a "Diet" is, but I sure as hell know how to start businesses....and I can make a business in ONE weekend.

What's crazy is most people can't even make one business in a LIFETIME.

They're always "gonna" start something.
They're always "developing something big"
They're always "trying to find the right idea"

Lo and behold....they NEVER get anything going.

Why is that??

I'll tell you why:
-They dunno how to find "the right idea" and eventually get stuck.
-They dunno how to eliminate crappy (and unprofitable) ideas.
-They dunno how to validate their ideas with a real-life test before investing all their time and money.

Let's cut the damn excuses Young Sumo-ling.

I wanna show you how to find your idea, and start a ghetto test-trial of your business before you waste all your time on some crap idea.

This is a kourse that's close to our cholesterol-filled Sumo-hearts.
(and it's called a Kourse because it's DIFFERENT from all the typical stuff you normally see about finding your idea).

"But Summoooo.....HOW is it different? you annoyingly ask me....
For starters, we don't just talk about this.
We actually BUILD a business with you from scratch in this kourse.

There was an article on Tim Ferriss' blog called
"How To Create A Million-Dollar Business This Weekend (Examples: AppSumo, Mint, Chihuahuas)."

When that epic article was written....it was almost a "joke" to show how to research Chihuahua dogs. But the research showed that market was viable. We're gonna prove we can make that data work by literally showing you how we built a business around Chihuahuas in one weekend.

I can already hear you starting to whine:
"OK OK OK Fat Sumo.....I DO want to start making businesses....and I read posts all over the internet about how to do it....but it's still confusing to me."

I hear you Young Sumo-ling. You're correct....sometimes just a 2-page post (no matter how good) is no replacement for seeing the whole process done ON A REAL LIFE EXAMPLE right in front of your eyes.

Hmmm....well it juusstt soooo happpeeennss this Fat Sumo has literally the EXACT answer to your problem.

This Video Action Kourse is stuffed into three sections:
SECTION 1.) How to find your idea and make sure there's a market (before you start charging down a profit-less road).

SECTION 2.) How to test that idea and start building. We actually START by building and validating a CHIHUAHUA BUSINESS! From scratch. At the end the kourse, this Sumo eats all the Chihuahuas for lunch.

SECTION 3.) Killing the "Wantrepreneur Syndrome" so many people have. We do this through AppSumo-Exclusive interviews with lots of people who are "sooo successful now" ....but weren't always like that (and how you can change your mindset too).

Malcolm Gladwell has something he calls the 10,000-Hour Rule. It goes like this:

"Studies suggest the key to success in any field has nothing to do with talent....It's simply practice. 10,000 hours of it. 20 hours a week for 10 years."

What this means is that the MORE you do "stupid small side projects" .....the BETTER you get.

In this Kourse we interview (specifically for this Kourse) successful people who talk about how in the beginning they just did "stupid small businesses" when they first started.

So it comes down to this.....

You're staring this decision in the face (kinda like that "Blue pill vs. Red pill" scene in The Matrix).

You can take the path of "I'll always DREAM of making a business but I'll most likely never even start....."


You can watch how this big fat Sumo identifies businesses to start, validates the ideas and EXECUTES them violently.

Grab my fat Sumo-hand and follow along as we test ideas and build ghetto validation tests right in front of your eyes.
