Starting a business can be one of the most satisfying and rewarding accomplishments. However, during your startup phase there will be times that you'll have challenges. Over the years, I've kept a list of the challenges that many business women have shared with me. Here are some of the common ones that I've heard:
“You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job, and not be paid for it.” – Oprah Winfrey1
It is no surprise to learn that you will do a much better job in your business and make more money if you are in love with what you are doing. Energy for your business is fueled by the passion and power you feel when you are waking up every day doing what excites you. When dreaming of the business you want to start, it is important to only focus on the ideas that don’t seem like work. What types of business ideas do you have that you would enjoy and be obsessed with? When you can decide on this, you are able to move your business idea out of the “dream stage” into the real start-up stage where “doing” becomes the daily course of action.
Congratulations, you realize that you want to be your own boss and you’re excited about starting your very first business! There are so many routes that you could take, but having the right direction not only cuts down on time, but helps you to achieve success faster!
