When was the last time you looked at your business plan? Many of us spent so much time writing a business plan when we first embarked on this entrepreneurial journey and put that final full stop and never looked back. If you were to go back to it now, have you actually followed what you set out to accomplish.
The market is so saturated with new businesses offering the same or similar services and we often asked by our clients how do they stand out. How do they let their voices be heard on a small budget? How do I ensure that people see me, my product or my service and how do I maintain my relevance. The answer is not simple but it is very doable.
It is no secret that our biggest critic is ourselves. Every day we wake up and we say our prayers and then we start our daily routine of self-sabotage. We talk ourselves out of a deal. We talk ourselves out of a approaching a potential business client. We even talk ourselves out of going to the gym to ensure our bodies are in tip top shape. Why do we do this? It is different for everybody.
When people talk about the freedom of being an entrepreneur, one of the things they always site is the freedom of working from home. They paint this picture of waking up whenever you want, not having to endure long commutes and not being hounded to attend mind numbing meetings that serve absolutely no purpose.
I never realized how much I was addicted to my wifi until the day I was busy trying to put together the email sequence for my first webinar and when it was time for me to test the software…poof. Nada. Zilch.
Today is the first day that I am free. Free to fully pursue my dream and my passion and live the life that I really want. It has been months, even years in planning. Many things stopped me in my tracks every time I was ready to make this leap of faith but finally...finally I have done it.
The excitement of starting your own business venture is exhilarating. You have your perfect product or service and you have clients pounding at your door. Things are exactly how you envisioned.
