Whether you are going to open up a business selling professional services such as an attorney, tax preparation or life coach, etc. or if on the other hand you have invented the biggest, best widget that mankind has ever needed; sooner or later you have to figure out a way to get your business off the ground and get people to buy something from you. No matter if you are manufacturing or reselling online there is usually one very strong reason to go into business, income, money, revenue, profit.
The problem with a lot of people who have great ideas for a business and never really do anything with them is fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of embarrassment, and on and on it goes. It is much easier to daydream about your own business than it is to actually open one. It is also much easier to collect a salary from someone else’s business than to put all you have in your financial nest egg on a new untried business entity, it can be down right scary. But, that is the absolute death to your business ideas is when you let the fear win. There are more than enough resources in this world today that you can get your hands on to help you with your startup of the business, the structure, the tax codes, etc. If you absolutely had to you could hire someone to look it all up for you, but essentially you are going to be the business owner, so you should be the one with the understanding of how it all works.
You also have to change any of your vague thinking into focused goals to meet and time is money thinking. One thing I see over and over again is that people love to talk; but when it comes down to actually putting effort into action is where most people fail. There can be a million reasons why and even more styles of procrastination and stalling; but each time you have to put your action into where you said your ideas are, most people get paralyzed at this point. It’s not about lacking skills, or energy or even resources; but once the person can feel like this is actually going to go somewhere they panic and withdraw again in fear. Then energy that the fear is creating is what was needed for the numerous hours of putting ideas in to action, not to fight or flight.
Be very careful if you have some good ideas for business and love to chat about them to anyone who will listen, don’t be surprised if someone else picks them up and steals them away from you. That is when you really know that the business was meant for you and not them; is when you hear someone else is succeeding at the same idea and your whole soul is screaming, “Hey, that could have been me”.
