5 things when making The Switch
Updated: Nov 14, 2019
I turn 35 next week, eek! 😱⠀ . ⠀ This year of starting my own business hasn’t been all smooth sailing ⛵️, and transitions aren’t meant to be! A lot of mindset changes to start with, patience, and re-orienting my approaches.⠀ .⠀ So what if YOU are thinking of (or already) starting a business, or building something on the side? 🙋🏻⠀ .⠀ Here are 5 things I’ve learnt you need to have in place to make the switch. ✅⠀ .⠀ 1) 𝓜𝓲𝓷𝓭𝓼𝓮𝓽: This is your starting point. This element is all about commitment, and without it, everything will start to feel wishy washy – and wishy washy intentions do not a solid business make! ⠀ .⠀ 2) 𝓘𝓭𝓮𝓪: Seems obvious right? Every business starts with an idea. However don’t be put off if you haven’t awoken in the middle of the night by a groundbreaking idea. There are definitely methodical ways to help you discover your best potential niche areas. It will always be the fastest to start with what you know or can easily build expertise. ⠀ .⠀ 3)𝓟𝓪𝓼𝓼𝓲𝓸𝓷 : Jumping into something with uncertainty definitely takes a certain fire to help sustain you… and perhaps also a few big doses of craziness! Either way, find your ways that you can continuously kindle this fire to keep going. ⠀ .⠀ 4) 𝓴𝓷𝓸𝔀 𝓱𝓸𝔀: Passion and ideas are all good… but without know how, it will be a long hard path trying to figure out everything yourself. Investing in know how through upskilling, mentorship, coaching will help give you the boost you need to quickstart and keep going.⠀ .⠀ 5) 𝓒𝓸𝓷𝓼𝓲𝓼𝓽𝓮𝓷𝓬𝔂: Remember the hare and tortoise? Once you have these elements in place, keep each day moving forward. Consistency compounds and builds trust, and even if there are imperfections along the way. Know that as long as you have the focus you will continue to move closer towards your goal. ⠀ .⠀ Happy weekend my lovelies!⠀ .⠀ X, A⠀
