When it comes to launching a business there are two things I get hung up on. Do I do something that I already know or do I choose something that I’m passionate about. And if I chose something I already know, but don’t really enjoy can I really be successful?
This year I’ve decided to go with passion and look for opportunities that give me the opportunity to do things I really enjoy. But where do you go from there?
I remember being told that you couldn’t start a business unless you had a business plan, but since I didn’t know how to write one it was a big hurdle to jump. I ended up launching my store, lalababyboutique.com without one and things turned out okay.
The point is there are many obstacles that get in our way when it comes to launching a business plan or idea and we can often get hung up on what we don’t know.
To knock down that brick wall we should focus on the things we do know and have in our arsenal. On Merakoh.com blog she covers the same issue and shares some great tips on how to determine what you do have for your business or idea. Check out her post Business Coaching Exercise, SOAR! January 2011.
Think about what you have when it comes to the following:
- Talents & Skills
- Mission Impact
- Support Group
Take some time and jot down what you ALREADY have? Was there something on the list that you totally didn’t realize?
