Want to Be Your Own Boss? How to Choose a Business

Around this time of year you might be pondering how you would like your life to go in 2011. Some of you may be thinking about changing your life work. Maybe you are tired of working for someone else who has completely different values and methods from yours.

If you have been dreaming of starting your own business, there is no better time than right now to start your research. Many people get the entrepreneurial “bug” and then never do anything with it. One reason for this is that a lot of folks simply don’t know where to even begin. There are so many choices when it comes to different types of businesses. How will you know if you should invest in a franchise, or open a boutique, or plan events, or run a concierge business?

In this article, I’ll address 5 steps to start the vital process of self discovery that MUST happen before you choose which kind of business to start.

1. It all starts with your personal mission statement. Think about it, pray about it, write about it – what motivates you? What captivates your attention and causes you to sit up and take notice? What gifts and talents do you think you have and why did God give these talents to you? Once you know your life purpose – you will have a foundation of information that will help you determine which business to choose.

2. Now that you know why you are here on this planet and what gifts you really want to share with others, take your personality into consideration. I prefer using Myers Briggs Type Indicator, but there are some free self-tests on the internet that you can use.  Once you know your personality type you’ll have a better understanding of …

Online Business: Past Results Don’t Predict Future Success!

Have you ‘failed’ at reaching the goals you had set for your business income or growth?. Those who read me know that I use this word only rarely, not because I am in denial, but rather because I have the belief that every experience provides value and helps up grow (every defeat is an opportunity to acquire new skills and knowledge, often indispensable for our growth, and thus is a milestone to personal success, rather than a failure). But this isn’t what this article is about. Rather, I will focus on the relevance of past outcomes for predicting future outcomes, in your online business or in realizing other individual ambitions.

Instant online business success is uncommon. Overnight wealth from a ‘push-a-button’ business system is a sham. Spontaneous entrepreneurship is an unfair challenge. Growing a lucrative business online requires time, action… and personal growth! But then you hear about those who generated tens of thousands in their first month, replaced their income in their first three months, or produced seven-figure incomes in their first 12 months? And you ask yourself: Why Can’t I do that?

If this question keeps emerging in your mind, every day, you shouldn’t! Success is personal, and measuring your results against the success of others will not be empowering. Results in online business are created through the business owner’s skills, mindset, dedication, leadership, faith, actions, entrepreneurship, resources, passion, tenacity, consistency, direction, and personal development, ALL of which will IRREFUTABLY contrast between individuals. The most productive approach, is appraise those things against YOURSELF and YOUR ambitions.

If you didn’t realize your objectives in online business or in other areas, it doesn’t mean that your future outcomes will be equivalent. HOWEVER, you need to evaluate whether you have the ability and resources to bring the contrasting outcomes! …
