How you can start a business, turn your dreams into dollars, getting clear and creating that plan to activate these dreams into cha-CHING!
As a little girl, I’ve always wanted to work with children. I’ve always wanted to help people. And I knew I wanted to have money. I saw my mom struggle for a long time. The more she worked, and the more I saw her give for our family and get up every morning- she’s a single parent mom- so she tried to do the best she could. The more she worked the more I began to realize I didn’t want to work so hard for the rest of my life. I wanted to do the things I am passionate about. Do the things I was excited about. and impact others around me.
So if you’re sitting there and you’re looking at each other and saying you know, what that’s me. I don’t want to work as hard as my parents and feel overwhelmed and I want to do something that is going to impact others around me and make some CASH.
1) Get clear on the ideas that you have
A lot of us are walking around with many ideas. We know we’re good at a lot of things. We may be good at doing hair or make up. We all have our own unique strengths and skills and sometimes do not know which ones to move forward with. The first thing you need to do is get clear. Write down all the things people come to you for. What do people tell you that you do amazingly well? What do you get excited about doing every day? Write down 5-10 of qualities or strengths that people come to you for that you actually enjoy doing.
2) Create a vision
Now that we know what we want to do, we want to create a vision, like a forecast. You know in the morning when you wake up and you’re trying to decide what to wear? I usually look at the forecast and look outside to see what the day will look like. You are going to want to do this with your vision. Know where you want to take this vision. What is your vision? How do you want to put this into play? Within the next 3-5 years I’d like to turn X into X. We’re dreaming. An ideal world, if I had the money to fund it and perfect circumstances, what would we do to get clear on our vision?
Sometimes you have to think outside the box. What else can I do with this vision that maybe everyone else is not doing? If I do hair, how can I do hair that’s unique? That’s a signature that reflects “me”. We all have something that distinguishes us from somebody else. How do we add that to our vision and forecast. We know that you have ideas, but let’s create this vision.
How can you turn the dream you have into something that you can actually create? A vision of what it could be if it were the ideal circumstances. Because a lot of us talk ourselves out of us. We don’t have enough. I’m not enough. I don’t have enough money. I don’t have enough resources.
Let’s not think about that.
If we had the resources
If we had the money
If we had the time
What would we do?
That allows us to stretch our dream and create something truly amazing.
Now we sit down and say this is what we’re really good, this is what my dream is and now we’re going to create our plan. Think about the first step. What’s the first step? What would it be called? What’s the name of this vision/business/idea that you are going to conceptualize into a business.
I have a source where you can do a name search to see if that name is taken.
