Like most of you, I’ve had a TON of great ideas. I get sooooo excited about them. Until its time to think about HOW am I going to execute these great ideas when I don’t have all the resources. Usually, after that thought my excitement goes from 100 to 0 real quick. To be honest i’m at that stage in my life now where I’m just so TIRED of feeling defeated. I’ve really just decided that if there isn’t a way, I’ll just have to make one or find one.
Here are a few steps I’m going to take that just might help you too:
Build your business around what you LOVE.
Start something that you’re really passionate about. Don’t start a business just for the sake of being called a “CEO”. 90% of businesses don’t survive their first year and majority of them are the ones with no passion for the business itself.
Utilize Low – Cost – Options
We live in a world right now filled with options. Whatever you want to get started on do your research and find the most cost effective way to get started.
Sell Your Services
Sell your services. We all have something to offer, it’s just a matter of who believes it.
Tell Everyone You Know About What You’re Doing
This is what may be the hardest part even though it doesn’t cost a thing. Call, send emails and make your new venture known on your social-media profiles. Your friends and family members can help you spread the word, and past business contacts can introduce your brand to their professional contacts as well.
No Money? You Better Be Able To Work Hard
If you want your business to be a success and you don’t have a lot of start up cash, then it is absolutely essential that you have a very strong work ethic.It won’t always be easy to lift yourself up by your own bootstraps and soldier on even when you feel as if you are not seeing results as quickly as you would like, but power through “the struggle” and you might just be surprised at what comes next.
“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”
– Harriet Beecher Stowe
