You will go through a 3-hour guided process to help you think about your values and priorities and set a time budget. You will then evaluate
and define key strategic elements of your business, including your What, Who, and Scale. Next, you will enter your expenses, revenue,
pricing, and revenue breakdown and ensure you have the best financial plan for your business as well as 12 months of sales goals. Finally,
you will build a detailed 12-month business development plan to ensure you have a detailed strategy for connecting with new clients to hit
your sales goals.

Once your SLAP™ is built, you will get comprehensive support for the next 12 months to ensure you implement your plan and hit your goals!
Behavior change science says that if you wrap the right kind of structure and support around yourself and fully take advantage of our 360
degree approach, your chances of success dramatically increase. With SLAP™, you get access to everything behavior chance says you
need in order to hit your financial goals which includes coaching, accountability, training, templates, tools, community and much more!

Once you qualify for SLAPcapital based on your behavior, get access to an unsecured loan based on SLAP™ behavior – not credit score,
collateral, or any other traditional finance metric that prohibits many business owners from marginalized backgrounds from accessing

Received the structure and support they need to set and hit their goals

I have done a lot of coaching, training and consulting programs.  I love SLAP™ because it is NONE of those things.  It helped me get clarity on what I want out of my business, build a totally practical one year Action Plan to hit my goal and then gave me tons of community, accountability and support as I have gone through a big transition with my business.”
