If this is you, what are you waiting for?
Maybe you are saying, "Next year I will...." --and how many years have you said this?
Or maybe you're thinking, "Tomorrow I will..." --but tomorrow never comes.
The number one thing you MUST do in order to be your own boss and launch your business dream into reality is: DO IT!
Stop waiting. Stop dreaming. Stop planning and LAUNCH!
You could plan your entire lifetime. At some point the planning needs to end and the preparation needs to begin.
Plan to prepare. Prepare to launch.
Carve out time for your future, your destiny, and sit down and plan your business--for real. Then take that plan and get started building your future.
The SBA has business plan templates and advice to help you plan your business, you can also find a ton of help online for planning your business, along with a marketing plan, financial forecasts, and whatever you need to hit the throttle and GO!
Here at Launched! we can also help you with your planning, and we always direct you to as many free resources as possible. After all, part of being a business owner is learning how to use your money, not lose it.
Speaking of money, your money should work for you, not the other way around. Every month you should be investing your money. If you are working toward launching your own business, then you should be investing in it--you are investing in your future. Aren't you worth it?
Set money aside every month to invest in your business. Even if your business has not launched yet, open a business bank account and start building it up, adding to it every time you have extra money--don't spend it, invest it and put it in your business bank account (an interest bearing account is best). This way, when you do launch, you will already have funds set aside to get things going.
Need more motivation?
Answer this question: Why do you want to start your own business?
Now ask yourself this: Is that a good reason to invest so much personal time and money?
If you believe that your business dreams are worth your personal time and money, then you have the most important investor for your business--YOU!
Investors seek a return on their investments. You as the business owner will be reaping the financial benefits of your business, you don't want to give those benefits away do you? Of course not! You need money to live, don't you? Well, most of us do. So, rather than trade pieces of your business for cash, start now preparing to fund your business venture by saving your extra cash so you can be your primary investor in your new business.
Now THAT is smart business.
So stop thinking about starting a business and start planning to prepare to launch your business.
We are here to help.
