A lot of times, when we hear the phrase – start with what you have, we often want to think, what really do I have? I have often thought of this severally too. I have written a lot on how I found my voice, and talent to be writing: You can click here to read my stories. This might not seem so much as a big deal to talk about right now, but I know how much I struggled to do this. I often heard; start with what you have, but it just didn’t make sense to me. Well, I am telling a different story today.
As I sit to write this post, I am still contemplating whether or not the time is ripe to talk about my venture into a new business. But on second thought, I think I should. Just last week, I started an online business, to sell books. I know you might be wondering why on earth I chose to do this type of business. Well, that’s a story for another day.
As at when I wanted to start the business, I thought severely of all the logistics involved in running the business. oo, it felt so much and I didn’t have all the requirement.
I had to make a decision
Looking at what I had, I needed to decide whether or not to start with what I had or wait until I felt I was ready. But I chose the former. I started the business as a newbie, and no doubt, there are still so many things I do not yet know about running the business. But I am glad I have taken off. To be sincere, I still feel a little rumbling in my stomach, and I am asking myself if I am making the right moves…
But regardless of how I feel, I have learned the following things about starting out the business:
- To make a bold step, first, start out with what you have.
- You always don’t need to have everything figured out before making a move.
- Do what needs to be done, even if it means AFRAID.
I trust that this post has inspired you to start that vision, idea, the dream you have. If you need to speak to me privately about this topic, please send me a mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. I am open for talks…
