“I want to chase my dream but I have bills and I can’t do it right now “. This is the excuse a lot of aspiring entrepreneurs tell themselves.
I was one of the many employees that were part of the layoffs. Although there are businesses that hire, I don’t want to go through that again. What can I do to transition into entrepreneurship?
Glad to hear that you are at least back to work. Now, before you make that leap, make sure you have a plan to stay focused on your current job, which is feeding you and your family. Here are some tips to help you make that transition:
There’s 5 crucial things that you need to do to help you move forward.
Don’t be afraid to ask. You are going to get further in building your dream if you ask questions. Ask for what you want. Ask for opportunities. Ask for collabs.
?2. Embrace Change.
We naturally get comfortable doing the things we’re so use to but you won’t fully commit to your dreams if you aren’t open to change. This could be as big as moving & changing your location. Sometimes this change is the key ingredient to spark creativity & give you the time and space to move toward your dream.
⌚️3. Perfect Timing does not exist.
If you wait for the perfect time to take that leap toward following your dreams, your ass will be waiting forever. If you want the road that is perfectly smooth & void of roadblocks, then stay in that safe cubicle. The learning & growing is in the process. Start before you’re ready!
?4. Build & Cultivate Relationships.
If real estate is about location, location, location, then being an entrepreneur is about relationships, relationships, relationships. It will be crazy to think you can do it alone. Seek both accountability & power partners — people who will be your cheerleaders and people who will give you honest feedback.
✋5. Don’t Stand in your own way.
There are going to be people who don’t understand what you’re doing & why you’re doing it. People will hate and might even criticize you to your face. It is good to be open to constructive criticism, but not pure negativity. Think of what wouldn’t exist if the great creators had listened to the naysayers.
