Today we talked about ten steps you could take in Making the Change From Worker-bee to Boss on Get High On Motivation. Because I know many of my listeners may not in position to take notes, I figured I would do a solid and type the steps up. And for those of you who get this blog in your inbox. Listen to the show to get more details, eat some Food for Thought, and hear my remedy for anxiety and depression. Ok enough of the shameless plug…. here is the roadmap to entrepreneurship:
Do your homework.
Start creating digital footprint
Start saving and cutting down expenses.
Build your brand, control the narrative.
Start networking and building community.
Write a Business Plan, using Discovery Canvas and Business Model Canvas.
Build a website (Wix for Shopify are a great start)
Test the market, start selling.
Throw up them deuces when you have too much work to do, to go to your job!
A few other things to keep in mind is having a conversation with your partner or anyone else that will be affected by your decision to be an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship takes a toll on everyone connected to you. (social media following included)
Most importantly, create a plan of action to make this dream a reality. You plan to fail, if you fail to plan. And we all know faith without works is dead!
If you want to start a business, do it! Be happy. Be healthy. Be You!
