Okay, this article may not go down well with a few people, but it will prove helpful for many others. It’s time to truly take a look at yourself and ask – are you truly cut out for entrepreneurship? This is a serious question and if you can’t answer it, then find the answer first before you start.
Don’t Be Afraid To Start Small
Every successful entrepreneur I know started from humble beginnings. Well, here’s mine. I started out as a nobody. That’s right – a nobody. I had no market, no list, no skills, no business to speak of. Yet today I have a list of nearly 55,000 clients. Why is that? I believe it’s because one day I decided enough was enough. I was tired of drudging around and decided to do something with my life. I was tired of people telling me what to do at work and having my financial and time freedom dictated by others. So I quit my job, and started my own business.
You Need To Be Enthusiastic
So my advice is this – if you are not enthusiastic about your business or aggressive enough in your marketing, you are probably not going to succeed. That’s no shame. 99% of online businesses fail. But if you want to join the 1% that is successful, get enthusiastic about something.
In my heart, I knew I had what it takes to succeed. You see, I was enthusiastic about it. I actually enjoyed marketing online. That’s the key difference between those who succeed and those who don’t – enthusiasm. Enthusiasm can be tapped on for many things – optimism, energy, aggression, all of which can be used positively in business.
On the other hand, take a look at what happens if you don’t have enthusiasm for entrepreneurship – fear, insecurity, indecisiveness, lack of confidence etc. All traits which are suicidal for starting a business.
