FREE- STARTup Cost Template To Get You STARTed

Do something more than once and create a template for it! I have a love of Excel, and I am big on making calculated decisions. You do that by knowing your numbers and your data.  This is an essential simple document I use as a STARTing point for company projects, startups, builds, and even home projects. I primarily use it in Google Drive to create collaborative documents to work with others. You just upload it to use in Google Drive.  Below is an Excel file for you to use as a starting point in Excel or to upload to Google Drive. 



START a company?
Create more freedom in time or profits?
Revamp your business and dial in workflows? 


Kristy Gayton


What qualifies me?

I love business. How the interworkings all work together and how a simple idea with enough heart can turn into your life. It's like a game…and if you play it right, you can scale up and gain freedom via your profits. But you have to understand the moving parts and be informed in order to make the right decisions. You CAN do what you love and are called to do through providing a service or product for others, while at the same time having a comfortable lifestyle. I believe my life, journey, and gifts are meant to help others find that freedom through organized efforts and operations.

I have sold multiple entities in various categories and still actively run four companies. I have also sold companies for face value, launched ideas that didn't work, and lost thousands. All part of the journey and plan. But I can speak about scaling companies to seven figures in one year, and I also can speak about seeing and deciding when it is time to let go.

I LOVE the idea that at the drop of a hat, we can take control of our lives, create change, and take control of our schedule and our destiny by creating our own businesses. Business ownership though is not for the faint of heart. It takes understanding, organization, and focused efforts to make it. 45% of businesses fail in the first five years, and I believe many leave so much money on the table by not running their marketing or operations efficiently. A big piece is not understanding their numbers and profits and where to put their efforts, and that is where I know I can help!

I am at a place in my life where I know my many years of varied experience are meant to be utilized to help others succeed. You don’t know what you don’t know, and I can guarantee that by being part of theSTARTapproach, I will help you make the right decisions, and save you time and money. We have designed a program to help you START and APPROACH your business like you never have before!
