You know you want to and possibly need to start a business.
But you can’t give up your job. You have responsibilities.
Yet your dream persists. I’ve had that annoying feeling in my gut that my life was speeding by and was leaving my dream on the side of the road.
To avoid that fate you can do the same simple thing the thousands of similar business owners have done. You can make a decision that this business is happening no matter what.
And then taking into account your responsibilities and your desire to live indoors you can dedicate a set amount of time every day to executing on that dream.
In the case of writing you say to yourself I will write one article per day. Same thing for video or Instagram photography.
No matter what happens you honor that commitment to yourself. At the end of 30, 60 or 90 days you will have more then you have accomplished in the last several years of worrying that your dream was never going to happen.
It is important to be precise during this time. Worrying about what you want to do doesn’t count. Being angry about not being able what to do doesn’t count – only doing the writing, video, photography or even audio counts. It’s the dedication.
Making that commitment and keeping it makes it sacred. You are building energy.
Hopefully you will be making sales or building an audience.
And an audience leads to sales if you follow our formula.
I truly hope that this helps if you are in the position of having a job or family or both where the responsibilities take up a lot of your time. And I recommend taking a moment to realize that jobs and family are accomplishments in themselves. You are a success if you work and pay the bills. You are a success if you love your family.
When the business is ready to replace the job you will move smoothly into your dream. It’s simple but you have to be dedicated you can’t miss a day you can’t make an excuse and you can’t lapse into upset feelings.
You can do it.
