Sister warrior, let’s say you have a great business idea: On a blank sheet of paper, write down answers to the following questions:
What problem are you solving for your customer?
Does our business solve some unmet need?
How much competition is there in your market?
How will your business be different?
To name a few.
It’s just as important to know your business. By that I mean, your business venture should be something in which you have experience or professional training. I hold an advanced degree in nursing and worked in different capacities as a professional nurse before I started my coaching business. With that being said, I suggest you work for a business like the one you want to start for at least a couple of years before starting on your own. Here’s the thing my sister veteran, on those hard days when there’s no money and plenty of work to do, your love for what you do will be the only thing that keeps you going. Also, when you love what you do, your customers/clients can see that, and they will be that much more interested in doing business with you.
You don’t have to know how you’re going to get there, but you need to know where you want to go. If you get too concerned with the step-by-step plan of action to be followed, you’ll find yourself brooding over the potential problems and roadblocks that could be encountered. Look at it this way-you’re not supposed to be concerned about what happens in the middle of a jump (leap of faith) -you’re supposed to be thinking about where you’re going to land.
