Women In Business: Stop Making Excuses
‘I don’t have enough time’
‘My day job makes me too tired to do anything else’
‘Who would care, really?’
‘I don’t even know where to start’
‘I’ll do it. I promise I will start on Monday’
How many times did you find yourself saying any of these sentences? Well, stop making excuses. Because that’s what they are — just excuses. Who benefits from them? No one. You’re killing your own dreams. Why? Because you convince yourself you don’t have time or your idea is not really that good.
I am here to tell you that it is a good idea and you should start now. Not next Monday, not as soon as you have a day off, because you won’t do it then either. So might as well start now.
Open a doc file and start writing your goals. Make them achievable, like creating your own website or contacting someone who could help. Do some research and make a business plan, it’s probably much easier than you think. Don’t get me wrong, running a business is hard and will take some of your time away, but you don’t need any special power to start.
The word ‘business’ is scary, I know, but a business is just a lot of small parts: an idea, a name, a product to sell, customers. If I can do it, you can do it too, trust me. And if you’re still unsure you have the right skills to follow your business goals, take a course online. There are plenty of free resources around, or if you decide to spend some money, they will be well spent.
There’s nothing worse than failing for lack of trying. Even if your business doesn’t succeed, at least you did your best. Lots of successful people have failed businesses behind them — all you really need is the one to go well.
Cannot wait to see what you will do!
Lots of love,
