How Do I Know I’m Ready To Start My Own Business?

I’ve built two 6-six figure businesses and I know starting your own business isn’t for the faint at heart. It’s hard work and requires your time, resources and attention.

Let me ask you a question, what does it mean to you to become an entrepreneur? 

Are you thinking about becoming well known and rich? Do you have thoughts of customers beating down your door to purchase your product or buy your services?

I’d like to use this analogy:  starting and building a business is like having a child. The thought of walking around with a baby bump or saying, “We’re having a baby” may excite you, but when long nights, poop filled pampers, temper tantrums and costly education become your reality, the glamour loses it’s shine.

Being in the trenches daily and sacrificing what you want for what your child needs can, at times, can make you feel stuck and wonder if your investment is going to pay off.

Now, let me be clear. Those feelings don’t mean that you don’t want or love your child. But they do signal, your awareness to your commitment, investment and desire for great outcomes.

When you understand that, Welcome to Entrepreneurship!

If you’re thinking about launching a business, consider the following:

1.  What product or service do I want to provide? Before investing your time and money in a business make sure there’s a market.

2. Am I called to do this work? Is this the best path to take to do it? Something has to keep you pushing through disappointment and persevering over the obstacles you’ll face. What is it?

3. Do I have the faith to sustain my efforts? You have to believe in yourself, your product and your ability to reach your goals, which means you have to have a strategic plan. More information on that later this week. Don’t miss it. Subscribe to this blog now via the RSS or sign up to your right.
