I waited 10 years before I was ready. And do you know what I found out when I thought I was finally ready? I wasn’t ready! This was me back in 2007 in my corporate days, in a job that I disliked, heavily, waiting to be hit with a hammer shaped lightbulb on what was next. Spending time hoping that the answers would come to me; what did my future look like, what was I really supposed to be doing…?
It wasn’t until I stepped out of my comfort zone, and unlike anything I’d ever done before, I went to see a coach. Even that first free chat helped me unlock some tangible ideas and make some positive life changing decisions. It set me on a course for change that if I hadn’t been brave enough to take, who knows where I may be right now…corporate; deeply unhappy, and unfulfilled?
So, as you can imagine I am now a huge advocate for helping people to BE READY.
Just like most things in life, there is never a right time to start a business. It will always feel extremely challenging, a huge decision and undertaking and a little scary. If it weren’t everyone would be in business. The best way to approach it is to start speaking with successful business owners you know, like and trust. This will help you gather more positive approaches to take and the understand the best next steps alongside honest amounts of encouragement.
If running a business is something you have always dreamed of; being your own boss, being in charge of your own destiny and being able to make the decisions that are right for you and your family…you are in for a such a great ride!
Perhaps you have a passion for something, but never really explored the idea further or dismissed it for a number of reasons. Here are the common reasons; it won’t work, I can’t make enough money from it, it’s a crowded market and the list goes on…
Time to put the obstacles to one side and start allowing yourself to find the solutions instead. This will help you begin to feel like a business owner – there are always solutions and giving yourself the headspace to find them will get you closer to the rewards of seeing your business idea come to fruition.
