How is your work situation? Are you laid off (or afraid you might be soon)?
A job loss pushed me to start my own business. I had wanted to have one of my own since I was 17, but I was afraid to let go of security. Getting fired and not liking the job opportunities that I could find pushed me through my fear and into determination: ”I will start my own business, and I will show them all by succeeding.”
Think it through: Do you want to have your own business? Have you for a while, but were hesitant?
If you are not interested, don’t worry about it. This is not for everybody.
If you are interested, you should explore it. Having the desire does not necessarily mean you are cut out for it, but it is one indicator. You owe it to yourself to think it through and find out.
By all means, don’t let fear stop you. Even in today’s rough economy, we are way more secure with our own business than we ever were working for someone else. After all, in one day, I went from full pay to zero!
Something to think about.
