The Do’s and Don’t When Following Your Dream as an Entrepreneur – Before you begin.

Starting your own business is scary and a lot of people are afraid to take the first steps.

You are afraid you have to give up everything, that you won’t have a social life anymore and you will miss out on family time. Or you are afraid that you will loose all your financial security and that you would probably fail. Maybe family or friends will agree that everything will be a waste of time and money.

All this doubt and fear start to creep in and after the initial idea to start that business, your dream is crushed.

But the question you have to ask yourself is, is that the truth?

Stop making excuses for yourself. If you never make that step, you will never know if you will be successful. You know it will take a lot of guts to make that first move and to create that life you always wanted.

You can do it and I can help you!!

There are a couple of things you should do. And of course a couple of things you never should do. I created a serie of blog posts to help you on the way. This is the first one.

The first 3 things you have to look into before you even begin with your business

These are:

  • Do You Understand Your Future Customers.
  • Do You Understand The Economy.
  • Are You ready to start your business.

Understanding Your Future Customers:

Before you tell your boss he can continue on without you, you have to ask yourself if you understand how people think. What would make them want to buy your product. Who will be your future customers. Where are they living. What do they do. What are their interests. You have to decide who your ideal client is going to be. Who your target audience is. And believe me, “the entire world” won’t work.

Understanding The Economy:

Next you need to ask yourself if you understand the economy. What are the trends at this moment. Is your product sell-able? Who is your competition? Are you going to do it all alone or are you dive into it with a partner? Which suppliers are you going to use?

For both the most important thing is, do your research. You love your product, you want to share it with your future clients, but are your future clients waiting for you?

Are You ready:

I absolutely would never want to discourage you to start your own business! But…. before you begin you have to be real honest with yourself. This won’t be an easy path. You will have your ups and downs. It will be scary sometimes, but you also will have a lot of fun on your road to success. It will be hard work. You will fail sometimes, but you will also learn a lot.

Fulfilling your dream is something not a lot of people can say they did, but it will be worth it.

Are you up to the challenge??

If you are ready, I will be ready for you. I can help you take these first steps and help you start. Teach you important and valuable information (without costing an arm and a leg).

You don’t need an MBA to start your dream, you just need some basic knowledge.

Are You On The Right Path?

There are a number of factors to take into consideration when prepping yourself and your company to approach the largest clients you’ll ever work with. Are You On The Right Path?

Today we’re going to start with a brief look at the three paths every business faces and show you which one is the path to success. Then we’ll talk about the mindset it takes to attract the big fish.

There are three major paths a business can take:
• Snail Speed
• Shooting Star
• Catch the Big Fish

Snail Speed
Most business owners ended up working themselves into the ground without much reward or success. This is what happens when you fool yourself into thinking you will find quick success. You may also find yourself following this path when you are afraid of change.

Shooting Star
This describes a business that shoots to the top so fast you are overwhelmed and don’t have the right resources in place to adapt. This can also happen from being overwhelmed by small clients and not taking the time to find large clients, which will sustain your business after the small client sales slow.

Catch the Big Fish
This is the path that allows you to build at a steady pace that you can manage by not allowing your customers to outpace you.

You can do this by putting these tips to work:
– Attract, keep and lock in big clients.
– Integrate “big business” culture into your company and employees.
– Acquire the expertise you need to grow.Have the courage to make changes as you grow.

Now we are going to transition a bit and talk about the “big fish” mindset. It may sound easy to just find and catch that big fish, but if you are stuck in the small business mindset, you may find it harder than you think.

Think of all the benefits of aiming at bigger clients:
• Inexpensive
• Highly Profitable
• Longevity
• Security

In order to catch the big fish, you need to believe your company can make a difference with theirs. It’s easy to get into the thought that a large company doesn’t need anything from a small business like yours, but this is entirely wrong!

Once you take a look at how big companies operate, it’s important to know which ones are the best fit with your company. One of the best ways to get in the door is by knowing someone on the inside who can put in a good word for you.
