The Hero Challenge 003 – Ashley Cheeks

Welcome to another episode of The HERO Show. I am your host Richard Matthews, (@AKATheAlchemist) and you are listening to a special episode, Hero Challenge #03 with Ashley Cheeks – Creating a Business Plan That Will Walk You to Success.

Ashley Cheeks, MBA is the founder of Written Success. With over 300 business plans written to date, she specializes in helping high-potential entrepreneurs create their “Million Dollar Business Plan” with strategies that reduce startup failure and lead to investor and lender funding (the largest deal raising over $550MM for a startup venture).

Recognized by the Forbes Business Development Council, she specializes in innovative and disruptive businesses, servicing high-profile startups, internationally recognized health and wellness experts, music label professionals, and celebrity entrepreneurs. Her clients have worked with her to pitch impressively to Shark Tank, Dragon’s Den, PITCH Investors Live, and other platforms.

Here’s just a taste of what we talked about today:

  • Discovering the passion to bring a business idea on paper
  • Helping entrepreneurs sell their ideas to investors and bankers
  • “The Blue Ocean Strategy” 
  • Recognizing great ideas and help make them work
  • All business plans are built from a clear idea
  • Having the right listener as you express your idea makes all the difference
  • Identifying valuable ideas
  • Invest on your idea and validate it; act on it
  • Just because we can, doesn’t mean that we should
  • Put your priorities in the right place & the money will follow
  • Giving yourself permission to play
  • Eliminating the “can’t” in your head
  • Limits will block your destination
  • Fighting for more access
  • The entrepreneurial community is small
  • Automation is key
  • Doing the work is the only way to be ready
