Are you frustrated with work? Do you have goals? Is your job or career not what you want it to be? Do you wish for more freedom and flexibility? Many people face these challenges in their work life and are simply looking for a way out. Many think starting their own business is the way to go (I happen to agree). The real question isn’t if you should start your own business. It’s is NOW the right time to start a business? And as the magic eight ball would say ‘all signs point to yes’.
There is never really a perfect time to start a business
Many people want all the stars to align and everything to be just right before they start a business. If you’re waiting for all the lights to be green before you begin your journey you’ll be waiting a long time. The odds of everyhting being just right are slim to none.
Many years ago I began my own business journey in network and direct marketing. Experts like Donald Trump, Robert Kiyosaki, believe network marketing is the best way for the average person to get ahead and start a part-time business. You don’t have to do network marketing, but I believe the same principles apply to any small business or home business you start.
It’s not about how much time you have
With a part-time business you can still work a job to pay your bills and build your business. It’s not about how much time you have; it’s about how effective you are with your time. This is doubly true for network marketing. With network marketing you can leverage your efforts and the efforts of your team.
There are perks to being a part-time business owner
There are also many tax advantages to owning your own business and many people can save hundreds if not thousands on their taxes by having a home business. Check with your local tax specialist to find out more. This is just another great reason to start a business today.
It’s ok to be unsure
Not sure what type of business you want to get into? That’s not a bad thing. I would encourage you to start branding yourself. Make a Facebook fan page and start building your contacts and image as an industry leader. Your business will only grow as much as you do. So start working on yourself.
Personal development will help you become the person you need to be in order to become a leader in whatever type of business you decide to get into. Also, if you decide owning a business isn’t for you, the personal development you do will help in your career.
