Have you ever earned a dollar that was not part of your salary? I have added this question to the list of many others I ask of those who approach me wanting help to break out of cubicle insanity and become entrepreneurs. Often the answer is no.
The $2500 goal
Here is another good question.
How long will it take you to make $2500 in revenue from your new business?
When I ask this question I can tell a lot about a person. Many people just look very uncertain – almost nervous. This question is serious – a real measurement – a real goal. While $2500 to most of us is not going to be life changing – it strikes fear into many aspiring entrepreneurs.
I can see the answers and the internal argument going on within them? Here is what I read on their faces – their internal conversation.
I have no idea, $2500 is a ton of money for what I do? Yet $2500 is really nothing. If I cannot get $2500, then how can I get $25,000 – or better the $100,000 I am after. This is overwhelming! I can’t do this!
Have you ever had these thoughts? Do you now? Seriously – this is common! If you have comment on where you stand!
Grow into business
Here is the thing – if you want to become an entrepreneur and have not had any significant part time business – you are approaching becoming a fool if you plan to quit the day job and go for it. You have too much to learn – and too far to go. And one of you biggest challenges is YOU.
So start today and begin. Get some money coming in – this creates HUGE momentum. If you can make $100, you can make $1000!
If you can make $1000, you can make $2500 – just keep doing the same thing!
If you can make $2500, you can make $100,000.
Momentum is the key!
Instead of going into business – which seems like a huge leap to so many – just grow into business. Start selling something – products, services, whatever on a small scale. Grow into business!
What are you doing?
If you have done this and met a $2500 mark – leave a comment and tell us how you did it.
If you have the fears I have listed above – comment on that also!
