Due to the pandemic, many people are now losing their jobs, their businesses and struggling to find work. On the other hand, more and more people are taking the leap and starting their own businesses. But it’s one thing to start a business, it’s another thing to know how to become a successful entrepreneur.
What does it mean to be an entrepreneur?
Well first of all, it’s worth noting that a true entrepreneur takes risks even when they’re scared sh*tless but will stop at nothing to becoming successful. But what I find most of the time with new business owners that barely make money from their business is that they are not willing to take risks, they are not willing to step out of their comfort zone while demanding instant results. You can’t make money fast and create a successful business if you’re not willing to give up everything to make it happen.
I met entrepreneurs who were 5 figures in debt from bad life choices, turn their lives around because they decided that they were going to start a business and put their all into it. I have never personally been in debt, but I never earned much money before I started a business. I was stuck on minimum wage with £300 going towards the commute to work every month, this doesn’t include buying food, paying for subscriptions and bills. And whatever money I had left over would go towards replenishing products like supplements and vitamins, medicines or it would go to my business. When I left my job I barely had much saved, enough to keep me going for a couple months since I no longer needed to travel every day but only enough to survive with.
I was holding onto my money for dear life, I was holding on so tight I lost sense as to what being an entrepreneur and a business owner is about. It was terrifying, but I rocked up the nerve to invest in a few coaches and courses, putting the bill on credit cards or dipping into my savings. I’m not sure how much I had spent, but I know it was at least £5000, but as soon as I invested in myself, I started instantly making money back. Clients were coming to me straight away once I had only just started learning more from my coaches and courses.
So, this is why I say that if you want to have a successful business, you need to invest in yourself first and take your business seriously.
