Starting a business is a pressure-filled experience. There’s no way to avoid it. Forget the money part for a moment. The commitment to become the owner of your own business…to own what you do– is huge.
Once you’ve written that check, you’re an owner. It’s yours. There’s no going back. No redo. No waking up the next day to find that it was all just a dream.
Being your own boss was your dream, remember?
Don’t Add To The Pressure
You’re going to feel chest-crushing pressure from day one. If you took out a small business loan, there’s pressure to repay it.
If you tapped into a portion of your IRA or 401(K), you’ll feel some pressure.
If you invested in your business, without you’re spouse’s blessing, the word, “Pressure” doesn’t quite describe what’s going on in your mind–and in your home.
And, if you bought the franchise that you’re now the proud owner of because you couldn’t find a good job… that’s way too much pressure to deal with as you begin your entrepreneurial journey.
So don’t become a franchise owner because you couldn’t find a job. It’s really a lousy reason to do it.
And the pressure may end up being too much for you.
Become a small business owner because you want to.
And, read my book, Become a Franchise Owner!
You’ll learn how to reduce your risk, and deal with the pressure.
