The Checklist

Step-by-step guide

We know what it is like to want to start a business but have no idea what to do first. You are winging it all and just praying you don’t screw up.

Imagine having a guide that gives you easy to follow step-by-step instructions to getting your business on its feet.

“So glad I got the launched business checklist, it’s a fantastic resource! Truly the most clear and concise business checklist I have ever come across. “

About Launched

Kara Laws created our Starting Your Business Checklist. She is the CEO and founder of Launched and a professional business educator. Here are some of her career highlights. 



Figure Clients

Created Courses

Kara Laws, our founder, has been working with women owned businesses for years.

While working with these entrepreneurs, Kara was often asked where clients could go to get all the information. Clients were begging for one, single platform that taught everything they needed to start a business.

These women wanted one place to learn with consistent themes and analogies throughout.

Kara decided to create the educational program that her clients were asking for, starting with a checklist to help them make sure they were starting their business smart.

As a result [of working with Kara], I updated my logo, made the necessary changes to my internet strategy, and have had my most successful year yet, in spite of the pandemic.
