Starting Your Own Small Business

Do you have a Business Idea but not sure if it will work? Or not sure that you are game enough to start your on your own and fire your boss? Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a magic crystal ball where we could see into the future and now with that we would be a 100% successful?

Start With A Simple Small Business Idea.

Here are a few tips that I have learnt along the road to Creating Abundance for starting up a small business (which could grow into a huge business!!)

  • Stay true to yourself – being someone different to make a sale (or to make money) will never work. Try not to adopt a different personality because you think a certain image looks cool!
  • Keep to your passion – if you know your passion really well it will show when you talk to customers
  • Stay with a simple idea and keep it simple. So many times I have seen businesses succeeding but then the formula is changed because the boss thinks it needs to be…and bingo they are out of business
  • Be nice to your business partners, employees and customers at all times. If you do have a problem with one of your staff then let them know in a kind way or keep your mouth shut !
  • Start out with small ideas, and build bigger and better. Once you have a certain way of working within your business let it grow with the same simple steps but on a larger scale. This might mean taking your business to another location with your set formula.
  • Think big. If you are thinking “I can’t do this – it will fail”…..guess what the universe is going to say to you? So believe in yourself.
  • Market to the people who are looking for you. The other day I saw a gym that was so very tiny I was surprised there was any gym equipment able to fit into the gym…..located in an industrial industry !! You know what – that gym was for sale 🙂
  • If you are not able to perform in a certain area of your business, step aside and hire the experts that can do the job – or if you know some one with a skill that you need but don’t have the capital as yet, ask to swap skills for payment.

One last tip – If you fail……Learn from your experience, dust your self off and get up again. BELIEVE in yourself that you will succeed and keep on trying until you have success. The most successful people were not born with silver spoons in their mouths or the know how to achieve the most from life….they made mistakes, they learnt along the way and they kept going until they were successful.

Here are some photos of one company that I am sure all of you have seen before….

Starting Your Own Small Business

For those you do not know the above “Wicked Camper Bus” here is a link to click on “Wicked Campers” so you can check out how one company has come up with an idea and turned it into a business. Did they know how popular that they were to become? Of course not, they did not have a magic ball !! BUT they had an idea and went ahead with their idea… what are you waiting for? Get going, Starting Your Own Business is so easy, all you have to do is have a passion, an idea, and believe.

Looking forward to hearing from you with your own Business ideas…..come on tell me yours!!!
