Marisa Cotton’s Drive and Passion for Helping Business Owners Establish Their Fundamentals During the Pandemic is Refreshing

Starting a business isn’t for everyone and it’s especially not for the faint of heart. A couple of statistics that jump out is that 2 out of 10 businesses fail in the first year and 5 out of 10 businesses will fail within the first five years. So establishing and maintaining one’s business is actually harder than when they had started it, based on the available statistics, and these percentages could be worse. That wouldn’t be a stretch. 

This is why business education is important and having a strong network of resources and a team that you can refer to at times when things are not going according to plan. 

Take the recent Covid pandemic for example, which had businesses everywhere scrambling and trying to stay afloat. Whether it was their financial needs drowning them, or systemic and/or procedural needs, saying that it is, or was, rough times would be an understatement.

Marisa Cotton, of Your Star Power Solutions, is one of those resources that business owners turned to. She’s assisted more than 200 businesses during the pandemic by helping them properly establish or correct their business setup and operations. She provided them with the fundamentals they need to propel their business and profits to the next level, in the areas of business formation and set-up, structuring business finances and taxes and business strategy.

“One thing about me is that I don’t just do something for you,” Cotton explains. “I will explain to you what I’m doing along the way. Because at the end of the day, this is your business, and you are the one who will have to be responsible and accountable for it.”

“It’s one thing to talk about starting or building up your business, but what are you doing about it?”

Marisa also adds this when referring to the various “get an LLC” memes that are often parroted on social media. “An LLC is not for everyone. Know your lane and your needs.”

“People like to talk a lot about the marketing and branding of their business, but you’re missing the positioning and foundational structure of your business. Who builds a house starting with the windows?”

Wise words indeed. To put this more simply, we can’t talk about it. We have to be about it.

Web Designer and Comic Book Enthusiast, Brennen Jones, is Changing How Businesses Get Online by Becoming Their Web “Superhero”

“Everyone needs a website.”

That’s always been Brennen Jones’ motto whenever he comes across anyone looking to debate him on the merits on whether or not they should invest in getting a website built for their business. Or whether one is even needed at all.

“The world is at our fingertips at the push of a button. In this day and age, when everyone is online, I really don’t understand how a business can even think that it’s even okay to not have a website,” Brennen explains.

“If you want a website and price is an issue. Because for many people it is, especially during this pandemic. It still doesn’t mean that you should accept any old solution. You have options. You don’t have to settle.”

This is where Brennen and his company P.S. Web Pros come into play. They’ve marketed themselves to be a hero of sorts. The “web hero” that you and your business deserve and need. Brennen has been doing this for well over 15 years and takes pride in being able to help brands and businesses find their way online.

“I’m a comic book nerd. I mean the type of nerd who has the entire Black Panther comic book collection on hand, and the reason why I bring Black Panther up is that he’s a hero that has always been about his people and helping them out with whatever problems they may have or facing those problems together. It’s like how when Thanos showed up in Wakanda, Black Panther was right there and on the frontlines. This is what I meant earlier when I said how one should never settle for a website. I’ve seen folks scammed paying 20 bucks or something like that for a website. And the site simply isn’t functional at all nor does it have a professional look.”

“Like Black Panther, we’ll face that problem of you getting online together. I’ve developed a system that will give you that professional presence that you should have for your brand, for as low as $99 by us working together with one another.”

“We have other packages as well that are higher priced, but the endgame (pun intended) for anyone who contacts us and is in need of an online presence, is to simply get them online. We have options for every budget.”

P.S. Web Pros will share with their clients their knowledge and tricks of the trade, in order for them to make the best-informed decision and create a true partnership…like Batman and Robin.

And of course, T’Challa and Shuri.
