3 Tips to Starting Your Service Based Business

Are you the next best kept secret? Do you want to start a business you love but don’t know how?

Here are 3 tips to help you get started.

Many heart centered women have a desire to start and build a business; they have a passion or a purpose, but do not know where to start, where to go, or who toΒ  go to.

Start with:

Tip #1: Why do I want to start a business?

You want to start a business for the right reasons.

Some right reasons.

  • You see people have a need or want something, and know you can help them with your experience.
  • To better utilize your expertise, skills, shortening the learning and growth curve for others.
  • You see a gap in the market and you can fill it

Wrong reason:

Many focus on going into business “just for the money,” which is one of the main reasons not to go into business.

Most successful entrepreneurs go into business because they have a deep desire, a calling to help and support, making this a better world.

Exercise:

Get a sheet or two of line paper. Do not type on your computer. At the top of the paper write, “Why do I want to go into business?” Then write out why you want to got into business, let it flow out on the pages of the paper, do not stop writing to think about what you will write. Write fast and consistently with no pauses, and if you come across a blank thought, write blank thought on the paper until a new thought flows in. You want to get out of your head, the thinking part of the brain. When finished go back and circle the repeated words. These words will help you focus on why you want to start a business.

Tip # 2: Invest in you

To be successful with creating a business you love you must work through some inner blocks, self-doubt, I’m not good enough, perfectionism, they are better than me, and lack of self-confidence, to name a few. By clearing out the old stories that are creating these limiting beliefs, you gain clarity which helps in the natural unfolding of your business.

Take the time to stop multitasking, the cooking, cleaning, laundry, perfectionism – got to do it all mentality, and focus on “just you” for a while. Those other things will always be there. Hire someone to help you with the household chores or errands. Participate in workshops, classes, retreats. Hire a life coach or someone to help you clear out the inner blocks. You are your most important commodity and need to be nourished.

Tip # 3: Get support

Going into business is not for everyone as it takes time and resources. But if you are motivated, committed, and able to adapt, owning a business can be a very fulfilling journey.

There has never been a better time than now to start a business and you don’t need thousands of dollars, a license or fancy credentialing. You just need to learn the tools and systems that are in place to help you and do the work for you.

Working with an honest and authentic business and or life coach will help guide you on building your business path and give the support you need in learning the step by step process of developing your business. She will help you cut through the entire plethora of information that is available, especially on-line; avoiding the feelings associated with confusion, overwhelm, or lost not knowing the first step to take. Work with someone who has gone through the business building steps and is credible.

Creating a business you love is a work in progress and the coach or mentor you work with can show you the short cuts saving you a ton of time and thousands of dollars verses you doing it all on your own.

All you need to do is decide. And this is where I would love to help you get started with one of my coaching packages.

Are you the next best kept Secret?
