Starting out as an entrepreneur is like falling in love. The first days, weeks and months you see everything very pink. Once you get used to the day-to-day pulling of the car, you run the risk of losing that initial vision. Having the right expectations does not protect you from abandoning an idea on your project, but at least you are clearer about what awaits you.
The situation is quite difficult right now with the pandemic, but it is not reason enough to give a totally monetary approach to our business, because for something to be successful it must be based on the innate talent of each person. Ask yourself what you are good at or what is better for you than others; delve into your essence and what you like to do and it does not cause you difficulty. Entrepreneurship is much easier and more successful if you do it with some talent and knowledge that you already have because sometimes people spend much more time developing and learning something they are not, just by going with the flow, which brings us to the next tip.
Always be willing to learn
Nobody is born knowing and even if you have talent and passion for your project, you still have a long way to learn, so get advice or training whenever you can to build a well-founded core. You must take care of everything administrative, economic and creative in your business at the beginning to be able to understand and exploit it. Leave your comfort zone and make your way into the market, as not all businesses are successful overnight — yes, there are exceptions.
Rest when you are about to quit
Not everything is going to come out of our mouths, even if we wanted to. The truth is that there will be dark days for the company in which we will not see profits and before resigning, we must take a break because the path of an entrepreneur is not a speed race, but a competition of perseverance. If you are struggling with buying all the equipment or inventory that you need, then it’s important that you either delegate the task or try to split it into sections. For example, you may need to buy some evaporative condensers for offices or houses that you’re fitting, prioritize the needs and then let the rest follow but don’t burn out from stress. Asking for help is not weakness.
Find a vision that inspires
The money can not be your only view, rather this will work as the fuel of your dreams, but not more than that. A company will make you richer not only financially, but you will also become wiser, more experienced and more patient. You will find that the bigger your vision and the more you focus on that one vision, the more it will fall into place. It is the law of attraction and can be used and adapted to all areas of business. Don’t forget that you are capable and all entrepreneurs have days like this.
