whats holding you back

As we progress through different stages in life, some things (more like thoughts or mindsets) seem to hold us back. Things such as; “I’m not old enough” or “I’m too old” or “I’m not qualified enough” or “I’m not good looking enough” or “I don’t have the needed resources” etc.

In the thoughts of a friend, these words can be called “Mindsets of Disaster”. They are simply thoughts that pop up in our minds and we affirm by repeating to ourselves whenever a fitting situation arises. These excuses show up frequently over the course of our lives at different stages; especially when we are about to make important decisions such as starting a business.

why you will not start a business

Entrepreneurship is great; it gives you the freedom to create something you truly care about instead of working sheepishly for a company you care nothing for, it gives you the ability to create a part of history and affect the world the way you desire to; it gives you control over your time and your financial future. All these are admirable and great but despite all the obvious benefits of starting your business, some people will never do it even if they can and should.

how to start a business without quitting your job.

Many times, when we think about the word “Entrepreneur” what comes to mind is a rebel, a misfit, someone who breaks the rules, does something out of the ordinary and changes the world. He usually has an eureka moment when he has discovered the next big thing and then starts work immediately on that idea, quits his job immediately and uses his garage as an office to build the next big thing. This view of the entrepreneur isn’t a realistic one, especially in our economy and culture.

Starting a business just like other events in a person’s life must be well planned and timed and a number of factors must be taken into consideration before launching out the new venture. Before I delve into those factors and my opinion of what time is right to start your business, I would like to draw your attention to times that people commonly start businesses.
