WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"I quickly realized How To Start Something is an accelerator for every entrepreneur no matter the stage.”
“There are lots of entrepreneurial training programs around. But 'How to Start Something' is uniquely impactful for several reasons. More than any other curriculum I've seen, it enable participants to understand WHO they are, WHAT they want, and WHY an entrepreneurial mindset is of value no matter what they do in life. The experiential learning aspect of the training reinforces the concepts throughout the program. And it works for anyone of any age or background."
CarolAnn Dykes Logue | Manager, UCF Business Incubator @ Central Florida Research Park
“Pam is on a noble mission to empower thousands of starters by opening their eyes to a new world, a world of entrepreneurship. And with her extensive experience as entrepreneur coach, mentor, and educator she is uniquely positioned to change lives and disrupt the status quo in entrepreneurial education.”
Dr. Regan Stevenson | Professor of Entrepreneurship
"How to Start Something is a curriculum with tools and deployable calls-to-action that any budding entrepreneur can take to market. The entire program is comprehensive and thorough, while it provides a cadence through the many subjects Pam steps the founder through, that simply works. It’s a unique program in a fairly crowded market because it de-mystifies the most vital, yet timeconsuming part of building a business: getting in the mindset, and understanding the risks, associated with being THE ONE to start the business. It also works on so many other elements of the business because it does not make the quotidian Business Model Canvas the focal point of the program- it provides the necessary building blocks for building AND validating a first time founder’s business. Finally, the mix of pedagogy (inspiring videos, self-teaching, workbook development, etc.) makes the program enjoyable to stick with."
Andrea Wesser-Brawner | Senior Director of Content and Research International Business Innovation Association
“Pam Hoelzle is truly an entrepreneur for entrepreneurs. Through her experience growing her own companies, consulting with thousands of entrepreneurial ventures and her academic expertise, she has developed a one-of-a-kind program and platform. With her innovative approach and tools, there is no doubt that she will inspire and enable a whole new breed of successful entrepreneurs.”
“The How To Start Something program focuses on the development of skills and competencies in a practical way, fundamental for participants to better understand themselves, their customers' needs, possible solutions and, in any case, create a prototype that proves the viability of market and financial position of the business. More important than validating a business, however, is changing the participant's mindset, empowering him as an entrepreneur, and experiencing a journey of experiential learning that provides a unique experience of personal and professional development.”
Rodrigo de Alvarenga | Brazil/Entrepreneur Educator/Consultant/Startup Grind Brazil
“Pam knew the growing pains I would face as a starter and knew how to translate her decades of experience in a way that was comprehendible to a young, student like myself. She introduced me a new mindset, gave me the courage to quit my job and pursue my dream full time. My business now does over $1M in revenue and we have hired 11 employees in the last 16 months.”
“The How to Start Something process helped me clarify my focus as an entrepreneur, and has ignited a passion for my craft that will never burn out."
Gary Bautista | Student, Entrepreneur
"How To Start Something is an awesome tool for anyone who wants to take an idea and make it into a business. It has been incredible - helping me clarify my purpose and simplify my idea so that I can release a product that will appeal.”
Bonnie Lewis | Entrepreneur
"It has given me answers to questions that I've had for a long time as well as gave me the tools on how to get started and how to evaluate an idea."
