Everyone wants to make it on their own, start their own business from scratch and build something that changes the pace of the world. An extant business idea is multifold and one can achieve so much by just starting off from a small family office with the right facts and numbers. But what about when you’re working, everyday and you don’t get any positive returns from your business as much as you want to; should you get more market experience by working for someone else for a couple of years or should you invest more time and perhaps money in your own small business idea? In reality, this is confusing because you’re young when you started and now it seems that you’re definitely in two minds for getting some market experience for a year or two or you want to work on your business idea, whether it’s online or offline, day and night without any other professional distraction and responsibilities. Gradually, this confusion turns into frustration and either way you’re yearning for more positivity economically from your business and that’s not happening for you. So, under the given circumstances, what should you do? Should you keep your business idea on hold for a bit because you know that it’s not going anywhere and work for someone else to get more experience and build more professional contacts who can, possibly, help you in the future or should you keep to your business and become embedded with what your goal is for your business and be extremely patient?
If you’re ever to be at such a standpoint where you’re hoping to do the right thing at the right time more quickly so you know you’re headed somewhere, MAKE SURE YOU’VE RESORTED TO THESE 4 STEPS. And if you’ve tried everything that is mentioned below and you think you shouldn’t try much, much harder again, make a decision to get more market experience for a couple of years or maybe less.
Make sure you’ve exhausted all your online options. Which means that if your business perspective is inclined towards fashion apparels that you source and sell online, adhere most to your online audience than your offline audience; get involved in online activities like blogging, social media, intending to take up the habit of pushing your limits for broadening your business scope by reaching out to fashion bloggers through your own blog or through other open sourced blogging platform, primarily Tumblr. Before you decide to gridlock your business, stop and do your research about all the possible strategies that are tried-and-true online and focus on a few that you can use for your business because the more you’re reading about what works for a startup, the less time and focus you’re contributing in completing the goals for your business. It is also extremely crucial to know why you’re business isn’t strengthening online because we always read articles that explain to us that the internet is monumental and we ought to be doing something for our benefit; ask yourself why your product isn’t booming online when the entire world is easily accessible and available online!
Are you busy or are you productive? When you’re striving hard to achieve a goal that benefits both you and your business, you often fail track of whether you’re focusing more on the basic fundamentals that can lead the way for a positive response or you’re experimenting more often with the way you look to others. It’s definitely worthwhile when you’re implementing a trick that has been tried-and-tested with positive results by those in the similar market but how about innovating something that’s unique and nobody else has it? Pretty cool, eh? If it’s your business idea, you should also implement strategies that are more personal and innovative to your likes and goals than use somebody else’s. The latter trick is easier and faster with well-grounded results, but the former ethic makes you look more original and creative; and such a quality will not only well-mark your business with you, it will attract a potential audience on those methods.
Never, never and never make your business the topmost priority! This is something that is extremely hard to comprehend and is seen everywhere because one would expect to give their professional goals more priority than the rest. And in reality, I have witnessed people getting more involved with their work and completely disregarding their own personal health issues, family, friends and other worldly affairs; which I would not suggest you to do. Research denotes that success is also linked with non-professional factors such as physical fitness, state of mind, family issues and social interaction. Set substantial and challenging goals for your business, but don’t spend more than 7 hours each day to complete them, don’t be in a hurry to get things done so you can adhere to that “positive feedback loophole” more often. There are many personal practices that you can adopt to get things done for you, professionally; one would be to get up at the same time everyday and get 6-7 hours of sleep. Early morning risers can easily form a habit of exercising regularly and then going out to work at a suitable time and also have a decent and productive social life. Such personal habits can make you more positive, sound and captivated in your life which will make you successful and motivated.
These 3 steps for me are a must before you decide to go the other way. If you’re willing to give your business a try, work extremely hard to follow these steps and you’ll definitely get results quickly.
