The Good Life Is...Starting a Business

If you've been reading this blog for awhile now you know that I own several businesses that have been bringing in multiple streams of income. Some of the income is passive, but much of it comes from doing what I love - writing, making jewelry, and creating art.

I started these businesses when I realized that I wasn't going to get rich working for someone all my life. Sure, I could work 40+ hours a week, save my money, and hope that it would be enough when I retire at 65. However, that vision didn't appeal to me. I wanted the freedom to live my life the way I want to and not according to someone else's agenda. I wanted to do something that I love, help people, and make money in the process. What's the point of living when you can't do what you want?

Well, that's been my mentality for almost seven years now and now I'm living my dream of having my own business, waking up and going to sleep whenever I want to, and following my heart's desires. I decided that the only way for me to achieve my biggest dreams in life was to create it myself and YOU CAN TOO!

Freedom-Move to the Rhythm...



Have you been thinking about your passions in life? Have you thought about starting your own business? Have you thought about being completely free to do what you want and follow your dreams? Here are a few tips to get started:

1. Take out a sheet of paper and write down any hobbies or interests you have. Look over the list and think about each of those interests. Can you picture yourself creating a business around any one of those interests? Can you envision yourself doing it for a long time?

2. Start researching and reading books about starting a business. If you need help with this, let me know!

3. Read about successful people in business and find a mentor(s) who can coach and motivate you. Only learn from someone you want to be like and who shares the same values as you.

4. Make connections with people both online and offline. Remember that marketing is all about building relationships and getting the word out that you have a business. I've used Vistaprint.com for business cards, address labels, and they print postcards as well. (Use coupon code “BlogPostcards100” at checkout to receive 100 free postcards)

5. Remember that a business is about helping people, not selling a product. How can you solve a problem? How can you make someone's life better or easier?

6. Take action now!
