SALT LAKE CITY, June 22, 2022
BoomStartup Accelerator's managing director Tara Spalding releases her new book, “10 Preparation Stages To Start A Successful Business.” This eBook was written in collaboration with IsoTalent and TechBuzz, and is now available for free access at isotalent.com.
For shorthand, the eBook’s title is referred to as Tara’s 10 (#Taras10). Tara’s 10 details what she believes are the 10 critical actions aspiring company founders must take before creating their startup.
“After 25 years of working in Silicon Valley and Silicon Slopes, I have a lot of insight on what works and what doesn’t when founding a company,” Spalding said. “Too often people aren’t really prepared – they just say, hey, I’ve got a great idea, or I can solve this problem and jump in with both feet but with closed eyes and no plan. They haven’t taken the time to lay the right foundations of starting a successful company. That leads to trouble, especially when they go to find externally sourced capital to support their endeavors.”
Spalding believes there’s not enough information available on the steps to take for a budding entrepreneur to prepare him or herself to be successful, and that’s why she wrote the book.
“I see people making the same mistakes over and over, and I wanted to make the information available so anyone can do the proper groundwork and waste less time dealing with obstacles and problems that inevitably arise along an entrepreneur’s journey,” Spalding said.
