Taking control of your small business
Did you leave a company or a job you weren’t excited about, only to end up feeling the same way you did before? Did you have an idea that you just knew, deep down in your gut, would have a positive impact on the world? Maybe you experienced what small business thought leader Michael Gerber refers to as “an entrepreneurial seizure” where you couldn’t scratch the itch of being your own boss until it became a reality.
Like many new small business owners you probably dream of financial independence, the freedom of spending your time as you wish, being your own boss or feeling content by filling a void in the market. But most importantly, you want to achieve something you’ve never had the opportunity to achieve.
Unfortunately, many go-getters don’t know what’s in store as they venture forward to implement their brilliant ideas; they just know they want to go into business for themselves. However, sometimes the reality of owning a business is more daunting than you imagine. Luckily, by focusing on proactive and strategic planning, you can take control of your small business and begin growing your dream into a successful reality.
