Business is a self-development journey, there is no doubt about it.
The story of your business is so closely related to your personal development. To your life. Where you are in your life, what you want from your life.
Not just your career.
I’ve started to notice that many people who are considering starting their own business aren’t really aware of what that takes in terms of pushing your personal, emotional and psychological boundaries.
I get it, it’s hard to know what to expect from the start.
So let’s explore this. What does it actually take to start your own business?
Have you ever thought that the online world might just have become a little too… ‘online’?
Everyone wants (or thinks they want) to build these mega businesses and serve thousands.
All of course while they sip a fancy cocktail with an umbrella in it on a beach somewhere.
Passive income. That’s where it’s at.
Or is it?
I think it isn’t.
If you’ve ever worried about sharing a business idea or waited for a business idea to come to you in a flash of inspiration this blog post is for you.
I’m sharing 4 myths about business ideas that I think will settle any fear of ‘losing’ ideas, your ideas not being special enough or not getting ideas in the first place.
There is an idea circulating out there that if you write a blog you can make big money with it.
This leads people to think they are going to start a business and it’s going to be a blog.
What I want to do today is explain how a blog can be monetized and what the numbers really look like.
So if you are thinking of starting a blog or if you are in business and everyone is telling you you need to be blogging you can make a decision on whether or not it’s the right path for you.
Let’s dig in…
When you are in business or even thinking about starting you are constantly bombarded with what you ‘should’ be doing.
There’s always a latest fad whether it’s Facebook Live, Facebook Lead Ads or Instagram Stories. Then on top of that there’s all the classics that you probably feel you need to be doing too – building your email list, blogging, posting on your Facebook page etc etc.
It’s very easy to become overwhelmed even thinking about all that stuff let along actually doing it! So let me let you in on a big secret:
YOU DON’T NEED TO BE DOING ALL, LOTS OR EVEN 20% OF IT.
