Starting your own business
It’s one thing to try and convince your family that you’re doing the right thing. It’s an entirely different beast trying to get other people to take the plunge with you.
Motivation is key
If you’re not entirely convinced you can be successful, you won’t be.
The thing people most often tell me is, “I don’t really have the time.” They want success, but they don’t have time for it. How about a single mother with two kids, two jobs, and college classes to attend?
Not having time means you don’t have motivation.
Finding the right people
My journey to find the right kind of people for my team has been tough.
To find the right kind of people, you have to put yourself out there. Get out there and make things happen. Be open and honest.
My selling point is: If you’re not willing to put your heart and soul behind a project, we’re not going to be a good fit. That’s what it all comes down to for me. I don’t care if you’re a genius or have never even touched a computer. You need to be willing to work hard and see it through.
