You weren't put on this earth to simply break-even..
DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE SELF EMPLOYED?
Most people would answer this question instantly with a big YES… However when you really get down to it most people don’t have it!
A lot of people think that owning a store, or providing a professional service will give them the ‘Lifestyle’ they are looking for. But the reality is in most traditional businesses eg. Owning a store you end up working a lot more hours than you would if you had a full time job… because there is all the behind the scene stuff most people overlook when going into business.
There are some pretty huge statistics about how many people after 1 year, 5 year and 10 years are in still in business… I won’t go into these as they are pretty shocking… especially to someone who is in business and has been for the past 10 years… The main reason a lot of businesses fail is for a few reasons… 1. Lack of knowledge of the market, lack of research. 2. No business plan… if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. 3. Most of the time being spent on the treadmill of the business doing ACTION and ACTION but no time spent on the business coming up with fantastic new growth strategies. 4. Hit and miss marketing, no testing and measuring. 5. No more passion, the enjoyment has gone from the business owner’s heart.
There are heaps of other things but you get the picture.
If you don’t want to be one of the failing businesses there are a few things you need to do… Keep the passion; always love what you are doing. If you don’t, change it and find something you do love. Always be evolving with the times… get onto Social Media and start marketing, and see your business boom. (Need a little help here: http://www.buzz-zing.com/leeannebartlett ) Be setting goals and taking the action to achieve them… and giving yourself rewards along the way. Take time off for you… Enjoy your business it really can and should be your best friend not your worst enemy.
If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired… than make a change…take some ACTION and find that passion again http://ow.ly/4GbHm
