Small Business Startup Advice
Business startups, small or big, are challenging so I am writing this article to give you my best advises to help you do this with success. Why go through the process of trials and errors if they can be avoided? But let me mention few things before I get to the main point.
As I have mentioned in some of my other articles, this website has been created primarily for the first time entrepreneurs, but this does not mean that people with some experience can not benefit from it. On contrary, I get contacted regularly by people who fall into this category.
Some of them contact me because they are interested in the opportunities that are given here, and some contact me because they have tried to make a living online before and failed, just like I did many times before.
I am giving these advises for two reasons. The first one is to help people in general offering some clarity regarding the issue. This has become a a pretty big part of my business without me consciously planning to be so. I do not mind cause I find it very rewarding but it is also connected to the second reason why I am writing these advises.
The second reason is this; many people who contact me are doing so regarding the existing business opportunities that I offer on this website, but they are often not clear of what it takes/means to start the business on their own. They have a wrong idea about them despite the fact that reviews of these businesses I gave are very detailed.
Best advises I can give
Without much delay, let us get to the point. These advises are vital and you need to consider them seriously before doing anything. Otherwise, you risk failing with your startups before ever giving yourself a decent chance.
1. Be clear whether you want it or not.
This may seem obvious but the truth is, many engage in businesses without being clear of this, the most vital aspect of them all. Most e-mails I receive from people are about Sherlock Nation business, and in many cases people are looking for the info but within them, they are not really ready for success.
When they see the review of this business they think: Oh, this looks like something I could do! So in the beginning, I would sign them up and later discover that it is the end of it. They show no signs of interest to propel their business forward, or they do not respond to the training. They waste their money and I waste my time.
I do not do that anymore. Now there is a qualification process that everybody who contact me must go through. Willingness to become an entrepreneur must be there before you look for proper business opportunity for yourself.
Maybe to you this advice seems pointless and obvious, and I am glad if it is. It means that you do not need it and that is a great thing! But I am giving it to those who do need it, and they are many.
2. Do not go through this alone
I have been advised to always surround myself with people that are more capable than me. I got this advice a long time ago and it always resonated with me, cause I knew it was valid. At times it was difficult to follow it, but eventually, I managed to find a great business contacts and few mentors from whom I learned so much.
I am successful now but I did not get where I am relaying on my efforts alone. Basically nobody succeeds entirely on their own. We all need help and guidance, especially in the beginning.
This is about taking, not giving. As first time entrepreneur, you will need all assistance you can get, so you need to find where you can get/take it. For example, I am offering it to others now, but I can do it because I took it first.
3. Recognize and respect different stages of development of your business
This is a problem spot for most first time entrepreneurs and I was suffering from this myself before. It is directly related to the mindset or maybe it it better to say, the lack of business mindset.
The business mindset does not come naturally and it must be developed. This is easy to do for some people, while others struggle with it. Business mindset simply mean a number of certain qualities that must be there within you. Qualities like flexibility, patience and perseverance.
Business startup is just that, a startup. It is only a beginning stage. After that comes the further development and profit generation stage. Many expect results to early which causes problems with motivation.
These stages can sometimes be done faster, but not always. If there is a possibility to speed up the process, you grab it and do it. You do what you can do at the present moment, and in the meantime, you relax and rest.
Some businesses start generating profits pretty fast but it is not something you can expect, especially as a rule. Once you realize that time plays a role in the process, you will be able to accept it and use it to your benefit.
These are fundamental advises, and as such, they are not related to any particular business model but apply to them all. I know they are valid and that they work well. I have learned them from others myself so I do not take credit as their creator. I can only assure you that they are solid through my own experience.
If you follow them you will avoid much of the headache and trouble. You will avoid many challenges related to business startups. They will be replaced by peace of mind which will also have a very constructive impact to your effectiveness.
