There will never come a day when it’s exactly the right time to start a business. But times like these, believe it or not, can be a great time to start a business. Why? Because we finally realize that corporate jobs are not safe havens or “secure” jobs. We can get laid off or fired at any time.
During an economic downturn like we are presently in the midst of millions of people may see their jobs disappear, and some won’t come back. This forces some of us to start thinking about creating our own business because we have no other choice. We need income.
After the great recession of 2008-2009 we saw a huge increase in people starting their own businesses. My guess is we are going to see that happen again now.
And I’m thrilled!
Why? Because I love seeing our natural, entrepreneurial spirit come to life.
Our ancestors, for the most part, came here with the hopes of a better life. We have what it takes to be an entrepreneur in our DNA. And because of this starting your own business is not as big of an undertaking as you may think.
I have had the honor of working with some great coaches throughout my career, and one especially helped me see that running my own business was in my future. That was back in 2005 and I have never regretted one day that I have run my own business. As I hear so many of the people I coach say, “I only wish I had taken the leap sooner!” No one I’ve ever worked with has regretted leaving the corporate chaos. And if I could, I’d explain in words just how much better my entire life is today because I created my own business.
If you are contemplating starting your own business, I’d be honored to support you. I offer a complimentary 30-minute “Escape to Freedom” session where we explore the possibilities and begin to create a vision for the business you’d like to create. It’s 30 minutes of brainstorming, possibility thinking, designing and creating a vision that will inspire you. And it’s fun. Imagine coming away from this short conversation with ideas that light you up!
