Have you ever wanted to work from home, work for yourself or market a new product idea or invention?
Have you been stopped in your tracks by all the ‘what abouts’ that you don’t know about? You know, the “What about this and what about that?”
If so, you’re not alone. And…it doesn’t have to be this way.
Today, I’d like you to invite you to think differently about starting a business for yourself. Here’s what you do….
DON’T THINK ABOUT EVERYTHING AT ONCE…and this is what I mean.
For those of you who have been following Creative Wealth and me for awhile, you have probably guessed that I have more ideas in one hour than a lot of people have in a lifetime. I want to start lots of businesses and bring a lot more of my business ideas to reality. And I know that I can’t do them all…or at least not all at once.
I can, however, create as many businesses as I’d like as long as I do them One Step At A Time.
I’m currently in the beginning throws of starting down a new journey that started when I switched to all Gluten Free baking. At first it was a challenge because I had a hard time figuring out how to make my yummy muffins and cookies (ask the neighbors how yummy:-) gluten free and still be yummy.
Over the last couple of years, I figured it out and now I’m in the process of starting Santa Barbara Gluten Free Goodies…an online and offline company that will market my very own Muffin and Cookie Flour Mix as well as deliver fresh, homemade muffins and cookies to local homes, businesses and coffee shops.
Do I know how to do this? NO!
Am I learning one piece at a time? YES!
Am I having fun? ABSOLUTELY!
All you need to do is take one small, baby-step forward on your new business idea and pretty soon you start to see a business plan. A little bit after that you start seeing the real thing materialize before your eyes.
What? You say you’ve tried this method before and weren’t successful? Well, you either had an idea that wasn’t going to work (this is not about you…it’s just an idea that isn’t marketable…get over it) or you needed some coaching to move it along. Either way, there are lots of great ideas waiting to happen and lots of great business coaches wanting to help you be fabulously successful (me for one).
So if you’ve always wanted to have your own business, offline or online (hint…online is easier!), START RIGHT NOW. Take some notes, create a binder for those notes and everyday add to the plan:
- Your vision
- What you want to sell, make, market
- Product and service details
- Competitor information
- Marketing ideas
- Contacts to make or ones made
- Steps, steps, steps
Then one day, out of the blue, you’re going to look in that notebook and see your first Action Step and then you’re going to take it.
The next day, you’ll take another Action Step…and on and on and on.
Finally, you’re going to wake up one day and have a full-fledged business of your own.
It’s that easy…
p.s. Take your kids along for this ride. Maybe by the time they’re out of high school or college they can either work for you or have their own business up and running. How cool would that be?
Just something else to think about…
