I was fortunate to have grown up in an entrepreneurial home. But I have a lot of coaching and mentoring experience helping employees navigate to be business owners using my Life Design for Business Owners process.
Start thinking about your business as you would at your career. When people look at a career, they ask questions such as:
- Is this what I want to do?
- Do I know of this?
- Where will this take me?
- Will it give me what I need mentally and spiritually?
- Will it give me the financial security and income I need now and going forward?
Do the same with your business because you have to realise, entrepreneurship is a massive con sold to people under the disguise of freedom, control and financial wealth. Look at business owners, and you see it rarely delivers on that. I am only designed to look after the needs of customers.
Doing the exercise mentioned above will help you see your business as something that serves you. You are a customer too. Your business was created by you to serve you. If it doesn’t, then why start it?
What if your business idea cannot cater to your needs too?
Do the following:
- Kill the idea and find another one.
- Innovate it so that it can deliver.
- Do it, but work to have another business on top of this, and you build multiple businesses that collectively serve your needs.
Remember, you can build a career to suit your needs; you can also build a business to suit your needs.
Here is a testimonial of the work I do:
Meeting Willem through LinkedIn was probably the best thing that has happened to my business in the last 9 months. Not only does he understand the challenges of an entrepreneur, but he has valuable solutions to offer.
Unlike other people I have met who Master’s degrees has, he connects with each individual on their level of expertise, never causing you to feel that “you’re not enough”. He also does not hesitate to open doors for others, without expecting anything in return.
He is a brilliant public speaker, bringing value in an entertaining manner.
If you are not getting out of your business what you deserve, then sign up for Willem’s workshops and coaching immediately – you won’t regret it!
