Mind Games – Ready to start your business?

–>

You’ve researched all 1,700 business categories and picked the business you think is right for you – You might be asking, NOW WHAT?

 

That is an excellent question. However, before moving forward, please heed a quote from my dear niece – “slow your roll”. A “reality check” of your motivation for starting a business is necessary. Your core motivation is key to business success. The right motivation will carry you through the tough times and allow total enjoyment during the high times. Studies indicate the wrong motivation for opening your business can be a death sentence march to failure. Why start on the road to failure?

 

If as a prospective entrepreneur your thinking the best reason to start a business is because:

"I'm broke and need to make some money…fast!"

or,

“This is a great opportunity…I’ll make at least $20,000 in two weeks”

or

"I want to start a home business, but I don't want to spend anything on it until after I start earning some money."

or

“This is a fantastic opportunity…it won’t take much time or effort to start raking in the big bucks”

…it is certain that you need a "reality check" and should not attempt to start a home business under any of those conditions.

 

I recently happened upon a great article by Ken Bannerman. Ken refers to these comments as the "death sentences" for starting a home based business.

 

I suggest that you grab a cup of coffee or tea and take a moment to read the article and reflect on your motivation for starting a home based business.
