It’s no secret that I’ve been a home based business operator for 15 years. Most folks know that about me by now. Today, I had quite a few conversations with prospects, new business partners, and business partners who have been with me for a while and I kept hearing people talk about the reason they don’t get started is that they don’t have the money.
I don’t want this to sound rude but I’m pretty sure it’s going to offend at least a few readers when I say: Lack of money is the very reason you absolutely need to get started right away!
Let’s get real for just a minute. Most of us have been working the “regular job” scene for a good while now and when you find yourself in a position that a few hundred dollars to start a real business is “too much”, it’s time to reconsider how your time is being spent! And I’m not criticizing anyone when I say that!
I started my first business in the year 2000. I had about $300 in the bank and I was married with 5 small children to feed! Believe me, when I looked at that bank statement, I didn’t see that $300 as the reason I couldn’t do it. I saw that $300 as the very reason I absolutely HAD to do something!
These days, I have people tell me things like:
“Well, it’s easy for you. You have the time to do these things.”. When I first got started, I was working multiple part-time jobs and would often work through the night so that I would spend 2-3 days at a time with no sleep, at all! Why? I knew I had to do something or my life was never going to improve!
“You don’t know what it’s like. I have a part-time job and a baby.”. When I first got started, I had multiple jobs, a wife, and 5 kids to feed!
“It’s easy for you. You know how to do this stuff.”. When I first got started, I had NO CLUE how to do all this stuff! I simply had to learn and I made up my mind that I would learn, no matter what it took!
“You have it easy. You have your own lists of people to talk to.”. When I first got started, my list had exactly 0 people in it. I started with the first one, just like everyone else does.
The bottom like for me was simply this: I knew that if I didn’t start doing something in a dramatically different way, my life wasn’t going to change. I was tired of pacing the floor at 3am, wondering if I was going to have electricity in the morning. I was tired of walking out to my driveway and seeing skid marks where my car used to be. The repo man had come while I was asleep. I was tired of stressing out over whether or not my rent was going to get paid.
And when I got tired enough of the same old junk happening, I began learning and doing things in a different way. Sometimes, the things I tried worked very well. Other times, things I tried failed miserably.
