First, please note that everyone does not to quit their job to be their own boss. Being your own boss is super hard work, and there will be several times you wonder how you will make it. In addition to that, if you have a current 9 to 5 know that is funding your small business dreams. That is something you should be super mindful of when it comes to quitting your job to go after your business idea. However, if you know all this and still want to go after your entrepreneurial dreams very soon, here is six steps to help you along that journey.
When I mention to people that I am a business consultant and strategist, then tend to tell me the million and one ideas they have. Then say how they are struggling with which one to start because all of them are great and money makers. To be honest, not every business is a money maker especially if you’re only starting it to make quick money. Those tend to be the fastest money drainers because of the amount of time, money, and more that needs to be invested.
When I talk to people about starting or running a business, they state things like “I am not an expert like you”. Initially, my reply has always been, “thank you, but I’m not the same person as I was six years ago when I started”. I had common knowledge about certain things, but I did not have a vast knowledge of my industry. However, now I crave to learn more and to build upon my expertise. Becoming an expert takes lots of work. Don’t get caught up with fake guru’s or experts. You can become the real thing.
