Many people at times ask themselves “Should I Start My Own Business?”
This is a great question and for some there is an easy answer but for others this can be a long, painful process.
Let’s start with the most basic place and that is to ask why? Why would you start a business and what’s driving you? Could it be money, freedom, anger at your lot in life or a thousand other reasons? The point is, are you driven enough to make it happen and will you stick with it when things get tough?
Ask yourself if there is something that you are passionate about? If there is, think about a way to monetize it or to make money at it. Is there a market for my idea? Could you help enough other people in order for you to prosper as your customers prosper? Please note – while you are figuring this out, DO NOT quit your job yet!
If you are not sure what you are passionate about or where you should start, there is an easy way to figure this out. Start out by making a list of all the things that you would like to do in life or just things that you like. This may take you a while to list everything on a piece of paper (or several pieces of paper). This next point is extremely important:
Do Not Self-Edit!
You read that right, do not self-edit as you go. If you have a dream of playing in the NFL but you are too old, slow and fat, put it on the list. If you have a dream of owning your own jet, write it down.
The point to this list is to get everything that is inside of you on paper. Another important point is that this is YOUR list. Do not share it with others, don’t tell everyone that you know what you are doing, keep this to yourself! There are lots of reasons for this but for now, follow along with our directions.
Once you are completely finished with your list (and this could take several days), set it aside for a day or two and come back to it. Now is the time to begin the editing process. Start going through and be brutally honest with yourself. The things that really don’t excite you and won’t have a big driving force in your life, scratch through them. After going through this exercise you will be left with a few items on your list. These last things will reveal to you who you really are inside and that will lead you to the business that you can create to begin to change your life for the better.
