You’re not Dragons’ Den material – yet.
You have the secret glimmer of an idea which just might turn into a brainwave. It’s been recurring in your mind and wont go away. The more you think of it, the more ideas and ways to go about it come to mind. Enthusiasm builds. You’re sure it would succeed.
If only… and then your heart takes a dive. This is all pie in the sky. It will never work, because you have no money. You’re deep in debt, life has kicked you in the teeth, you’re at rock bottom. Or you’ve tried so many different ideas which have come to nought, you wonder if you have the get-go to do it all over again.
It’s no use even dreaming…
Dreaming! That is the magic word!
I am in my mid seventies, and life has not been easy. But I can assure you from personal experience, that if you really want something, you can really have it. However long it takes. And it’s never too late to start.
You just need to know how to go about it, one step at a time.
Of course, not everybody is cut out to have their own business. But if you don’t think about it seriously, you’ll never know.
I’ve been a businesswoman most of my life, and for the past fifteen years my business has been to mentor people who want to start their own. I introduce them to business planning. A business plan is dynamic, it never ends. It can be done in any order. It should be re-visited at least once a year. And it is no use “having it in your head.” It must be written down as a formal document. There is an amazing finality and power in committing something to paper.
I love my work so much, that when I could no longer be paid for my services, I opted to do it voluntarily. In the dark of the night an idea has just blossomed:
- Are you wondering if you’re the right sort of person to have your own business?
- Do you have a business idea?
- Want to teach yourself how to clamber onto the first rung?
Then come with me! Follow my blog, and I’ll see you next Tuesday.
