Moving from corporate to becoming an entrepreneur is always nerve wracking! But if you believe enough in yourself, then just do it!!
If you don’t mind not receiving a salary Cheque each month. If you love the high highs and the low lows, go for it!!
My journey of being an entrepreneur started when I was 21 years old!!! My philosophy was simple!! Just do it! Get your hands dirty!!
Do everything in your business, then you can help others to understand their job!! And most importantly Believe!!
Believe in Yourself
I believed in myself and my abilities! Arrogance you say?! No just confidence, I say, and a huge amount of hard work.
80% of entrepreneurs will fail within 5 years. It’s not about being a man or a woman, it’s not about your age, it’s not about your skin colour, or religion or where you live, or what you drive.
Its really about what YOU believe in, your authenticity towards your business.
Is your business a business or a hobby??
If it’s a business then you have to work, and work hard AND at the same time you have to believe in who you are and what you stand for.
The aaaaah-ha moment of an entrepreneur is priceless. When they work out exactly what the really want to sell or what service they want their business to be about!! The sudden realization that THEY are a business owner is fabulous.
I have a challenge to each of you reading this today…
Analyze where you are at, do YOU believe in yourself and do you believe in your business? If so, then get your A into G and do this thing called business.
Get Your A into G
- Work on your business and not in your business.
You too can be the next best business. You too can employ just one more person! You too can be outrageously successful.
- Have fun along the journey!
- Inspire and motivate others.
- Remain humble!
- And always give back … it doesn’t have to be money, but your time or expertise is always priceless.
Your journey should be filled with excitement , apprehension but most importantly laughter!!
Get your A into G and bring it, Sista!
