Have an idea? Love the thought of being your own boss? Looking for more freedom and flexibility?
This was me, not long ago! I've learnt so much from starting my own business and I've got to say the decision to "take the leap" was the best choice I could've made in this stage in my life.
What's the biggest lesson or learning that I've gained along my journey so far? Well, there have been so many but to keep it relevant here, I'd say my biggest advice to budding entrepreneurs is: CLARITY IS YOUR BEST FRIEND!
Get clear on what you want, who you want to be, what you're willing to do and what you're willing to sacrifice. STARTING A BUSINESS MEANS CHANGE. It will for instance, impact you, your relationships and wider ecosystem. This impact may not necessarily be bad nor good, but it's important to acknowledge that it does mean change and explore what this will mean for you and others.
Getting clear will help you assess where you are, where you want to be and whether you're prepared to do what it takes to get there. This includes doing "self'-work" to overcome any fears, limiting beliefs and filling the practical gap in knowledge and skills.
"We don't know what we don't know!" That's why it's incredibly helpful to speak to people who have successfully done what you want to do. The amount of learning, growth and effective implementation that comes from MODELLING others is worth their weight in gold.
So, why is self-work, gaining clarity and modelling success important? Because, this is what will motivate you during those inevitable times of self-doubt, feeling stuck or overwhelm. Having the motivation and the resources to work through the challenges, will mean you not only get to enjoy the fruits of your labour, but it'll make your journey to success all the more enjoyable.
Even once you've started a business, CHANGE, PROBLEM-SOLVING and a whole host of other things including CREATIVITY are part and parcel of being an entrepreneur. It's all just FEEDBACK to learn from and ADAPT to. This is an essential BUSINESS MINDSET to adopt, otherwise your business experience is not likely to be a pleasant nor successful one.
The good news is that, everything can be FIGURED OUT!
