If you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you’re probably thinking about when you should make the leap to become an entrepreneur… should you do it now? Tomorrow? A year from now? In this blog post you’ll read about the worst – and best – time to become an entrepreneur.
Entrepreneurship: I believe it defines The American Dream. This country was founded on the passion and drive for entrepreneurship and I believe our hope for the future of our country comes from this same passion and drive.
When Should You Become An Entrepreneur?
I am so fortunate to meet people every single day who are entrepreneurs, or aspiring entrepreneurs. If you are thinking about starting your own business, perhaps you are wondering when the best time to start a business is.
Should you wait until you’ve saved up so money so you can quit your job? Should you wait until the craziness of this election cycle calms down? Should you wait until there’s more certainty in the economy? Should you wait until your kids are out of the house so you’ll have the time and energy to focus on business a business?
There IS a right time and a wrong time to start a business.
The right time is now.
The wrong time is any time later than now.
Get Started Now
Consider this your official kick in the butt to get off your chair and start your business. If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to become an entrepreneur, now is it.
Here’s how can I make that claim without knowing your specific business idea: We live in an amazing world where you can get just about anything you want online, and where you can start a business for next to no cost at all.
Just go out there, get a website for your business, and start marketing. Congratulations, you’re in business.
Some of you will be able to start offering your services right away (such a consultant or graphic designer or real estate investor). Others of you might prefer to sell a product so you need to source the product and look at making it or importing it. Whatever you want to do, you can at least start right now to grow your business, even if it’s not as big or perfect or even has anything to sell just yet.
Just get started. The rest will follow.
Here’s What Will Happen…
Once you start talking about your business, you’ll meet other people who will help you: some might be customers willing to order from you, others might be well-informed advisors who can guide you, or, you might even end up learning that the market has no need or desire to buy your product from you… even THAT is great news because you started your business and learned what you needed to know without spending a lot of money (and even without quitting your job).
So, what business do you want to start? Even if you want to be the next Apple, Tesla, or Amazon, you don’t need anything to start other than a dream… and to start talking about that dream. So put up a website and start sharing your vision. Congratulations, you’re taking action at being an entrepreneur at the perfect time… now.
