Financial stability; I have little Capital from my savings whoch i tend to use on things that aren't priorities. A financial coach would assist.
Product readiness, I feel like i have prematurely created some products that aren't yet customer ready and that has caused some shartfalls and obstacles in launching the business.
Actions I’ve taken so far
I have registered the business, opened a Business Account and sorted out Tax obligations with SARS.
I have bought a website domain and temporary site to push first project which is a short film.
Contacted people to hire and contract for first project.
Created a budget needed for the film , a marketing and distribution plan is set.
My future goals
Apply for funding, create a model that will be used for upcoming projects. Find a suitable location for HQ and a travel plan as I plan to be moving around promoting, sourcing and screening our projects.
My motivations to work with a mentor
Mentors offer great advice, knowledge and expertise. They are well informed, unbiased and are able to identify challenges one might encounter going forward. I could really use a mentor a i m still working alone in the company. A "big brother" (excuse the sexist term) figure to guide me to the direction i wish to get to.
