First up don’t worry.

Everything is hard before it is easy. (Remember, this line)

Everything is hard before it gets easy (Eh, WRITE IT DOWN, AND READ IT BACK OFTEN).

It can be so rewarding, life changing, in fact. Even fun - and we can do it together.

This is what you might know

Tick any of the following…

  • You hate your job. You know over 90% of the workforce on the planet does not get any thrill of getting out of bed every morning and heading off to work.
  • You’re underpaid. There is very little control over this. You’re at the mercy of the economics of the business.
  • You lack purpose. This can be a killer.
  • You’re frustrated with the lack of opportunities your job offers.
  • You want to do your own thing. The thought of how to start your business and control your own destiny excites you. 
  • You think about the future of your family. Human instinct.
  • You have an entrepreneurial spirit. This is gold.
  • You have been thinking about this for some time. It’s time. There is nothing as powerful as an idea whose time has come.
  • You don’t know where to start…… but you have a dream. 

If you ticked more than half of these you'd better read on.

 “From Fear to Freedom: How One Woman Built a Thriving Business Without Capital or Experience.”

Let me introduce you to Maria a client of a mentor friend of mine. This is her story on how to start YOUR business and how she went “From Fear to Freedom: How One Woman Built a Thriving Business Without Capital or Experience.”

Maria was tired of the daily grind of her 9 to 5 job and felt unfulfilled and knew she needed a change.

She dreamed of starting her own business, but the thought of taking the first step filled her with fear.

She had no capital, no experience of running a business, and the prospect of leaving the security of her job was daunting. What you need to know was Maria had to do something to break free from the rat race of working for someone else and living paycheck to paycheck.

Maria spent hours researching different business ideas and brainstorming what she could offer that people would be willing to pay for. She knew she had skills, but she wasn’t sure how to monetize them.

One day, she stumbled upon an article about starting a home cleaning business. Maria had always enjoyed cleaning, and she realized that there was a genuine need for this service in her area.

Despite her fears, Maria decided to take the first step and start her own cleaning business.

She didn’t have any capital to invest, but she knew she could start small and build from there.

Maria started by offering her cleaning services to friends and family, and soon, word spread about her high-quality work.

She was able to build a steady stream of clients, and before she knew it, she had a thriving business.

As her business grew, Maria faced new challenges. She had to learn how to manage her finances, market her business, and handle customer complaints. With each obstacle, she learned valuable lessons that helped her grow her business even more.

The key to Maria’s success was her willingness to learn and adapt. She knew she didn’t have all the answers, so she reached out to other entrepreneurs for advice and mentorship.

She read books and attended workshops to improve her skills and knowledge. She also embraced technology, using social media and other online platforms to market her business and connect with potential clients.

Maria’s business continued to thrive, and eventually, she was able to leave her 9 to 5 job and focus full time on her business.

She was finally her own boss, doing work she loved, and earning a comfortable living.

Looking back on her journey, Maria realized the biggest obstacle she faced was her own fear. She was afraid of failure, afraid of taking risks, and afraid of stepping outside of her comfort zone.  She learned that taking calculated risks was essential to achieving success, and also learned  failure was not something to be feared, but rather a necessary part of the learning process.

Starting a business from scratch can be scary, but it is also one of the most rewarding things a person can do.

Maria learned that success is not just about having a great idea or lots of capital; it’s about taking action, being willing to learn and adapt, and persevering through the inevitable challenges.

If you’re considering starting your own business, but you’re afraid to take the first step, remember that you’re not alone.

Many successful entrepreneurs have faced similar fears and doubts.

The key is to start small, take calculated risks, and be willing to learn and adapt along the way.

With hard work and determination, you can break free from the rat race of 9 to 5 drudgery and build a fulfilling and profitable business of your own.

How to start your business and never look back.

It can be an over whelming issue when you hate your job. When you know you can do better and you are frustrated in not knowing what to do next. This is energy sapping and in the most part, unnecessary.

What you need to know is get help. Talk to other self employed people. Get introductions to business people. Maybe sit down and interview them. They will 100 % be willing to help and give you advice. Maybe if you are lucky you might hit on one wiling to mentor you. You never never know, if you never never go.
