Most of my readers are entrepreneurs at heart. You want to do be, be more, create and do the things you see other people wrong, right.
You want to create something you can call your own, that you can stand behind and which you can control.
Starting your own company is a great option.
Starting as a project on the side
Many make the mistake of rushing in to a new project all guns blazing, just to learn that their ideas and skills weren’t really good enough.
I am more of the careful type, I like to test the project small scale before I go in 100%.
When I started my first company I kept my day job and worked on my new project evenings.
This worked well since I could get a lot of work done, I had a stable income so I didn’t have to stress about making the company profitable from the get go, since most companies don’t show a profit the first 12 months it was enormous relief of pressure.
Having the guts to go all in, even if you don’t in time
The mistake I made with my first project was that I didn’t have the guts to invest myself in it.
I knew that I needed help in many areas, but instead of hiring or investing, I tried to figure it out myself.
This is what killed my first company, the product was poor and it took too long a time to get it to the market, before I was able to launch there were multiple competitors already out there with much better products.
Having a clear goal and plenty of support
When you start your project you work double, both on your day job and on your side project, it is important to have the support of your family since it will take its toll.
Before you start it is therefore important that you have a clear goal of what you want.
What is it you are after? How will your life look when you succeed? What will your business look like? And so on.
Knowing this before hand will help you family see why it is a good idea for you to start your side project. Because if they only see it as you working more and spending less time with them, why would they want you to do it?
They love you and want to be with you, show them how in the long run this project will give them that.
The amazing feeling when you can quit your day job
The day you quit your day job and move over to your business full time is incredible, you feel as though you have succeeded!
This is the first step into becoming a true entrepreneur. Once you are working on your project full time you can dial up your efforts, expand and quickly start achieving your goals.
