Questions to ask yourself if you are thinking about starting your own business…

Thinking about starting your own business? Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  • Why do I want my own business?
  • Am I passionate about what I want to do?
  • What are my goals?
  • Where do I see myself in 5 years time? In 10 years time?
  • Am I willing to do what it takes to create my own financial freedom, or do I prefer the safety of a weekly paycheck?
  • Do I have something that others want or need? (information/knowledge/expertise)
  • Is there a market or a need for what I want to do?
  • Do I have the means to get me through the start up period and through any lean periods?
  • Am I willing to learn and implement effective marketing and business strategies?
  • Am I open to advice and criticism?
  • Am I willing to deal with obstacles, fears, and challenges that come up? (Trust me, they WILL come up. Owning your own business is the graduate school of personal development)

Personally, owning my own business has been awesome! It has allowed me to help people without the constraints of a company telling me what I can or cannot do! I have been able to make a lot of money and have the freedom to spend time with family and friends, all while doing something I love! I’ll be the first to say that it has it challenges. But to me, it has been worth it! I can honestly say, that for me, it’s been the graduate school of personal development:-)

If you decide that you want to go for it, save yourself a lot of time and frustration by seeking out help from the start. One of the secrets to success is learning from the experience of others. There is no need to reinvent the wheel. The path to success is already there. Having a coach and mentor who can lead you through the process of learning how to implement proven business and marketing strategies from the start could be the difference in succeeding quickly vs struggling and possibly failing.

    I have more time since I retired and wanted to do something to help others. I’m finding that there is a lot of information on the Internet about starting a business. You have made your blog more interesting and seem more genuine than a lot that I read. Thanks for that. I have just started my own business and thought these were great questions to reflect on. I’m going to be contacting you to see if you can help me. I’m doing okay, but know I can do better and don’t really know how to do it.
