How to Start a Business

Welcome, this series of posts were created to help anyone that has ever thought about starting a business. I hope you are excited to begin.

Please take this introduction very seriously because the first couple of articles are the most important.

Self awareness is a primary component for starting a business but also extremely important in life and happiness. I want you to start a business in one day, but today might not be that day. Don’t rush this process. Everyone deserves the freedom and opportunity to follow their bliss and purpose in life.

Align your business with your passions and purpose

These first two steps were developed to help you with your inner game. If you don’t have your business aligned with your passions and purpose, you are going to be unfulfilled. Think about this: If your business is making a lot of money, but you’re unhappy, is that success?

Here’s the thing about success, it’s different for every single person in the world. You’re never going to be successful if you aspire to live someone else’s life. You have to figure out what success means to you and you only. There is no way you can love yourself and judge yourself at the same time; the more we judge, the less we love. Understanding this is so important before starting a business because you will never be happy if you compare yourself or your business to others.

This series of posts were created to help set you free and give you the opportunity to start something, today, that can change the course of your entire life. This is the beginning of creating your business and getting re-aligned with your purpose.

I mean, after all, don’t we all just want to know what our sole purpose in life is? The sad truth is most people will never discover it, mainly because of fear, doubt, and embarrassment. So I am asking you, please, please, please do not fall victim to one of these cognitive biases. You truly have the power to create anything you want.

Remember, most of the things you’re afraid or embarrassed about, are experienced by a ton of people in the world. So, you’re not alone and you’re not the only one who has felt those feelings before. Even heroes and great legends have those feelings too, but they also have the will and desire to persist.

Strive to be heroes

We all love to win, but most people don’t understand their potential. Life is about the journey of being a hero. In fact, we should all strive to be heroes. Who says you can’t be a hero? Who says everyone in the world can’t be heroes? Who’s says you have to have the same “career” or “profession” your entire life?

I believe everyone should want a life they love rather than a job that pays well and is comfortable. You must step out of your comfort zone if you want to be an Entrepreneur.

Capitalize on this NEW OPPORTUNITY to pursue your dreams and follow your curiosity. The only person you’re destined to become is the person you decide to be. Choose wisely.
