Thinking of Starting your own business?

No comments

Are you thinking about starting your own business? Do you a passion, an idea the market needs?

I was at the business start up show yesterday and it was such a great event. As a speaker, I was wowed at the number of people that came to learn about entrepreneurship. One of the keys I adopted when I started my own property business was becoming a life long learner. The journey of success requires for you to acquire, skills, tools, strategies continually. So if you are thinking about starting your own business,start by educating yourself about enterprise especially the industry you want to venture into.  Find out what works and what doesn’t, find people who are doing so well what you want to do and learn from them. Research shows that most small businesses fail in the first 2 years of operation due to :

1. Lack on Knowledge

2. Lack of Money

3. Lack of Support.

I also believe that in order for you to be successful you must :

Love what you do

Believe in what you do

Become excellent in what you do.

In as much as i was there to speak, it was also a great opportunity for me to learn about other business owners that where exhibiting, the place was packed with hope and possibilities.

The Future of Entrepreneurship

The Future Of Entrepreneurship

As we all know, an increased number of people now choose to work from home, either through telecommuting or running home businesses. 

While this trend has commonly been attributed to the growth in the number of working women wanting to be home for their family and have a lifestyle business, more and more men are joining the ranks. My husband has an office in Swindon however he now prefers to work at home rather than going to the office, we tend to work around school hours and share the flexibility of when we work. 

In more recent times a number of factors seem to favor the continued high rates of new start up businesses:

  • Continued high rates of economical change (change creates opportunities for new firms)
  • Continued growth of the service based businesses (the highest growth area for new firm formation)
  • An increase in the number of virtual corporations to which firms can outsource their functions, and create opportunities for entrepreneurs
  • Positive climate for small business – a general perception that small business is a positive influence on the economic wellbeing of the country, giving entrepreneurs legitimacy and respect
  • Growth in international business opportunities

With the traditional corporate-employment track seemingly on the decline, the trend towards forming strategic alliances with other businesses that are closely aligned with yours, or with someone who can add value to your product, is steadily emerging. In fact, futurists envision a return to extended community living, with shared resources but individual living and working relationships. They see entrepreneurial activities as the basis of these communities. Strategic alliances are a first step along this path.

So, if you have determined that entrepreneurship is for you, you can be confident that you’re part of the wave of the future!

But understand what it will demand of you, and assess whether you’re prepared to give what it will take. The allure of entrepreneurship is undeniably strong for many, but it’s important to make sure you’re moving into it for the right reasons.

Being miserable in your job doesn’t automatically make starting your own business the best idea in the world. In fact, it could be the worst reason of all! The key is to love what you do, believe in what you do and become excellent at what you do. So grab the bull by the horns and embark on the journey.

Never Give Up….

I just had a call with one of my concept to Cash girls who encountered a challenge in her business. She called to say its tough and she cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel, well the thing is “I can see the light at the end of the tunnel”. 

Now we all know that saying. When times are hard and the situation seems hopeless, we usually turn a corner and can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Before the call she figured that the light at the end of the tunnel was impossible. We talked and I did what i know to best  (find the solution by analysing the big picture). Guess what? We saw the light, She called me Genius!  🙂 i laughed because I am not a Genius, I have just found out how to see the light at the end of the tunnel. She still has more tunnel to go through and so does every business. In the dark, I’ve noticed the distance of the light is deceiving. Will I reach the opening today, tomorrow, next week, next month, or 2013? Hanging on is really tough some days but I still refuse to give up. 

What do you really see on the inside?

Whatever you are going through never give up but find solutions to the current challenge.

Stay blessed

The truth about me…..

Everything I know about myself, all my beliefs, are recorded on the hard drive of my personality, in my self-concept.What do you really see on the inside?

Your self-concept precedes and predicts your levels of performance and effectiveness in everything you do. Because of the law of correspondence, you always behave on the outside in a manner consistent with your self-concept on the inside. All improvement in your life therefore begins with an improvement in your self-concept.

You have an overall self-concept that is made up of all your beliefs about yourself and your abilities. This bundle of beliefs includes all the experiences, decisions, successes, failures, ideas, information, emotions and opinions of your life up to now.

This general self-concept determines how and what you think and feel about yourself, and measures how well you are doing in general. If you want to live life by design then you need to redesign your current design to support your desired lifestyle. Stop blaming and start creating.

Your Mini-Self-Concepts

You have a series of “mini-self-concepts” as well. These mini-self-concepts combine to make up your overall self-concept. You have a self-concept for every area of your life that you consider important. This mini-self-concept determines how you think, feel, and perform in that area. For example, you have a self-concept for how healthy and fit you are. You have a self-concept for how likable and popular you are with others. You have a self-concept for what kind of a spouse or parent you are, for how good a friend you are to your friends, how smart you are and how well you learn. You have a self-concept for every sport you play, and for every activity you engage in, including how well you drive your car.

You have a self-concept for how well you do your work, and for how well you do each part of your work. You have a self-concept for how much money you make and how well you save and invest it. This is a critical area. The fact is that you can never earn much more or less than your self-concept level of income. If you want to make more money, you have to change your beliefs about yourself relative to income and money.

Redesign your Self Concept…

Stay Blessed

Lifestyle, Choice, Freedom, you name it….

 

My weekend update!

I am so passionate about seeing others create their world of possibilities, I simply love what i do and it gives me a sense of fulfilment everytime i do what others might call work, I call it lifestyle.

 Friday, saturday was hectic i had to get myself to London and speak at the Franchise Show.  First things first, I dropped of my son at School (which by the way I love to do and so does he when i drop him). 

The same weekend we had a strategic empowering session with my mastermind group, I am so proud of the group, they are really playing game to win its exciting to witness.

Back home Saturday evening and watched Roary the Racing car with my son and had a chuckle.

Sunday message was awesome. It was such a lovely day my loving husband took us for a lovely pub lunch in our local village.

I love what I do.

At the Franchise Exhibition show I shared my story that always reminds me of the day that my life turned around.

5 Years ago i was in that seat listening to a speaker (Steve Bolton) talk about starting a business in property and today I am that speaker, I stepped out in faith, very much afraid and did it any way. 

The one thing i know is that opportunity knocks at your door, but its whether or not you will open the door and allow opportunity to work through us.

This week i encourage you to pay attention to the opportunity knocking at the door of your life.

If you want to do what you love to do and are called to do then pay attention to opportunity

As a man thinks in his heart so is he!

 Work on the root not the Fruit.

A few years ago I began to work on personal and professional growth. I realised that the greatest challenge was my own thinking. I was operating from mind maps that led to the poor actions and undesirable results.

The surface idea is not the real thought, I am talking about paradigm, you might not even be aware of the current paradigm that determines the nature of your thinking. They are the real drivers giving you the results you have today. 

As you begin to work on yourself look to deal with the root not the fruit!

Stay Blessed

What are Your Business Fears?

“Today’s entrepreneur faces an environment of tremendous competition, complexity and opportunity, so starting a business the right way is more important than ever, especially when statistics say 90% of small businesses fail in their first 2 years of operation.

The entire process could take 90 days if you were really game, I have done it through a Business Mentoring program and so have other entrepreneurs I have worked with.

“So many people have watched their dream of owning their own business go out the window due to Fear, lack of money, lack of Knowledge, and lack of business support. 

Everyone I have ever talked to that is an entrepreneur has had to come face to face with their fears. I have had to as well, from a background of air hostess to property investor, initially fear gripped due to lack knowledge, but then i had the support of my business Mentor Steve Bolton, if am honest the thing about Steve was he believed in me and my desire to learn the craft, so guess what i did, embraced change and practiced the new skill, i fell a few times but he was holding my hand which my dad did when i was learning to ride a bike and eventually I mastered the craft. Don’t get me wrong I still have to learn but no loner in 1st grade or pre-prep, its called continuous education.

You have fears even if you don’t readily acknowledge them. They sometimes take the form of that chatter in the back of your head that says you can’t do it.

Fear is such a huge issue preventing people from becoming entrepreneurs. I have noticed when I have spoken at jam packed Seminars, that maybe 2-5% of people will actually go out and apply the knowledge and starting their business from their Passion. I am convinced that the rest are paralyzed by fear of some sort.

If you’re ready to give it a shot, be sure its something you love, believe in.

Find a Business Mentor who has been there done it to guide you through the maze, as i say stand on the shoulder of giants.

Opportunity of Entrepreneurship

I was speaking at an amazing event yesterday at the London Metropolitan University, I was inspired by the number of Women whose passion is to have a successful business.

Clearly the current economy is waiting for courageous people to take the leap of faith and set up establishments that will help stabilise the economy. If nothing that was one clear message I got from all the speakers representing the Banks, Government, Community.

Interestingly a young lady asked a question which i think many people share and i want to answer in depth, what if you do not know what your passion is hat do you do and where do you start?

I am a great believer that a work with a Passion is one that expresses fulfilment.  One common theme in entrepreneurs like Richard Branson, Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates and even Warren Buffet is that they are successful doing what they love, am sure when the going gets tough they still find a reason to persevere and push on.

If you want to live your life to the fullest, have the courage to be true to your passion and find the business that gives you the opportunity to do it. We are all put on this earth for a purpose.

Follow your heart and dreams on finding your passion.

The best place is start by looking at your strengths and asking yourself these questions.

What do you love to do?

What are you good at?

Your hobbies and interests tell so much about your strengths?

What do people compliment you on, or tell you that you do well?

What are you fascinated by? What intrigues you?

Where do you see the greatest injustice in the world? What really annoys you?

What topics do you search for online or research in libraries, you find most exciting?

List five jobs or full-time activities. paid or unpaid, that you have done in your life.

What experiences or situations have given you personal satisfaction a feeling of importance or self worth?

What are the activities or thoughts that absorb you the most you loose track of time?

If you could be in business, what do you think you would enjoy the most?

Visit the Business Start up Show, Franchise Show take a keen interest on reading articles in papers and notice what sort of things get you excited.

Hopefully this will get you thinking.
