I get it.
You’re stat there looking at the ‘life’ options laid before you:
Both can seem like pretty bleak choices…
But here’s the thing – if you whizzed ahead in time until just before you’re about to kick the bucket and you were doing a life review, wouldn’t you prefer to look back and be grateful that you gave living life to the full a go?
I mean unless you believe in reincarnation then you really do only get one shot at this thing we call life, so I am definitely in the camp of pluck up the courage and go for it.
So far, I’ve got 3 successful businesses under my belt (& by successful I mean actually making consistent money).
& while it’s tough to start out with, where I am right now is beyond what I ever imagined possible.
As I type this, I have my dogs curled up on the sofa next to me, an open fire roaring away and the most amazing cup of coffee helping me kick my brain into gear this frosty morning.
You see, when you have your own biz, unless you’re meeting clients you can pretty much work from anywhere.
The quality of my social media posts, blog posts and reports do not deteriorate because I’ve come out of the office and instead am sitting with my feet up.
I’m still me and still give 100% regardless of where I am.
Although, I have to be honest, I do find myself losing a few minutes here and there enthralled in the very active lives of my fish…
I know, you’re probably thinking – that’s all well and good, but …
How do entrepreneurs get started?
I mean, that is the title of the blog post and all…
I hear you!
& my apologies – I am a rambler, both when I speak and when I write…
So here’s how:
You’ll need to grab a pen & some paper too… & yes you budding tech whiz, I mean an actual pen and some paper – using OneNote or Evernote simply will not cut the mustard for this task.
Find a calm, peaceful and relaxing spot where you can sit down and not be disturbed (by animals or humans, this will require some serious concentration on your part, after all you’re making one of the biggest decisions of your life!)
Once you’ve decided that the entrepreneurial route genuinely is for you here’s what you need to do next:
But that’s not all.
There’s one thing that separates the successful entrepreneurs from the bumbling hobbyists & that is…
All successful entrepreneurs have this one thing in common –
They all have someone guiding them.
There’s this great phrase ‘you don’t know, what you don’t know’.
& there has never been one more important for entrepreneurs.
You may think that you know everything you need to but at some point your lack of knowledge will fail you and cause you to make some really bad decisions (trust me, been there too).
The only way to ensure success is to get someone who is successful to show you how.
But a word of caution – their way may not be your way, but they should be able to support you to get to where you want to be because they know a heck of a lot more than you.
Over in the Female Entrepreneur Road Map to Health, Wealth and Happiness, my recent clients have been finding out just how helpful it is to have someone helping them move forward.
For example; Louise filled her yoga and relaxation retreat in just 2 weeks after learning how to write an elevator pitch, craft sales copy for her event and how to use Canva so that she could share interesting graphics and get people to register without needing to rely on any paid advertising.
The Female Entrepreneur Road Map To Health, Wealth & Happiness, only runs twice a year (Feb & Sept) but I’m in the process of taking key pieces of the road map and putting it into a guide book so that I can support even more female entrepreneurs to success.
You can use the button below to register your interest and be notified when it’s released (mid-December 2018) and while you’re waiting I’ll be sharing some useful tips and insights for you so that you’re not left hanging around, twiddling your thumbs and struggling to get going.
& if you have any questions or just fancy saying hi, please do drop a comment below & I’ll get back to you asap 😊
Have a fantastic day & I look forward to getting to know you.
