I am starting my first business, and I have a strong feeling that I’m not prepared. I have been reading books, I have been reading blog posts and I have been talking to people about how to start a business. I have even talked to a lot of people about how to start a successful blog.
I have a lot of thoughts about how to start a business and how to name a business. The title is how to start a business in 90 days, and that’s because that’s exactly how long I’ll be planning how to start a business. I could have used a lot longer, but it ended up being 90 days.
Let me take you on a journey through all my thoughts on how to start a business. I’ve been dreaming about this for the past weeks, so this comes straight from the heart.
How to start a business with no money
I don’t have any savings. So,I asked meyself; how to start a business with no money? I didn’t have an answer. That’s why my first client made me the happiest man in the world. I need money from day one. I know that I should have started out with enough money to get me through the first 6 months, but I don’t have any. Now, I’ll need to hustle. But, fortunately I like to hustle, and I won’t give up, no matter what.
I have been looking for passion all my life. And, for some people it comes easy, for me it’s been a different journey. When I talk about how to start a business, it’s usually all about passion. I really love what I’m doing online, and I love to help people. Content marketing and inbound marketing is what it’s going to be all about, because that’s something I truly believe in.
It takes time
I’ll keep hustling to be successful and I will continue even if it takes me forever. I don’t expect to be earning hardly any money the first months, and I don’t care, as long as I understand that my customers are 100% satisfied (I won’t settle for less), and that I’ll get the money eventually. I know that this isn’t a good strategy, but I just want to focus on my customers and the content, and I believe that if I do a great job, they will pay me.
How to start a business with no testimonials
I have been marketing for a long time, but I haven’t been running my own business, so I actually don’t have any testimonials from my current work. That made me think. Should I contact former clients and partners from the college where I work? They could create a testimonial about how they perceive me and that they trust me and enjoyed working with me. It’s different, but by doing this, I’ll be adding social proof to the equation, and that’s very important. Nobody wants to be first.
I need to create a home
To me, when I’ve been dreaming about how to start a business, I have always end up thinking about blogging. And to me, blogging is like my home online. My blog is where I invite people to read more about me, and to read my content, and to build a relationship with me. I use my blog to create trust. I do a lot of things online, but I invite people to my home. No matter what happens, this is where I’m most comfortable.
I need to eliminate expenses
I have been asking myself; how to start a business with no money? I keep adding expenses all the time. I am focusing on the long term goals, so I’ve been buying things that I’m sure that I’ll be needing. I want to use the best tools available, and that’s why I ended up buying things like the Genesis Framework and Long Tail Pro.
When you are thinking about how to start a business, it’s important that you believe in who you are and what you are capable of doing. I don’t believe in miracles, but when it comes to how to start a business, I believe that luck comes to people who work hard.
This post could have been called, how to start a business when you have no luck at all, because that’s what it feels like to be me. I haven’t played the lotteri in twenty years, and that’s because I didn’t win – ever. And, whenever I carry an umbrella it stops raining, and if I don’t, it starts. That’s the story of my life. But, I’m certain that my business is going to be a success, and that’s because failure is not an option.
I am an introvert, not that I’m shy, but I like to spend time alone, and many times my energy is drained by being around other people. But, that doesn’t matter. I’ll keep telling people about my new business, and I’ll keep building my network. I have faith in what I am doing.
How to start a business without a business plan
Don’t get me wrong. I know how important a business plan is, and I have a feeling that I’m going to find out how to start a business without having the proper strategy. I have been doing a lot of thinking, and I have been writing, but there are so many things going on right now, I just don’t seem to be able to finish it. I have the plan inside my head, but I need to write it down. I want to be able to read it, and watch what I’m going to do next. It’s all about content, and how to hustle to get my clients found, and to make people proud of being customers of my clients. But that’s not enough. I need a goal, and so far, my goal has been to learn as much as possible and have as much fun as possible while learning. That’s not a sustainable strategy, or maybe it is?
I Need Help
I need accounting help. This post could have been called; how to start a business when you don’t like to talk about money? That’s me. I don’t like to talk about money. I don’t like to focus on money. I’m going to have a hard time sending my first invoice. Accounting is not the only help I need. I need a mentor to inspire me. And I need some fans to keep me motivated – failure is not an option.
