There are many reasons why people want to start their own business. Whether it is to stay home with their kids, earn extra income. Or to completely quit their corporate job so they can be their own boss is just a few of the top reasons.
I am here to tell you that you CAN start your own business and create income from home. BUT I don’t want you to think that once you set up and website that people will come buy your products in the same week. Is it completely possible? Yes! Does it happen often? Not usually no.
You have to start at the bottom of the totem pole at any new job. The same goes for starting your own business. This title of “business owner” is so glamorized that the reality is seldom shown of how people first start out. Causing new people to give up and feel that they failed.
Starting a successful business takes time
Saying that you can have a sustainable business that is paying your salary in less than one year is really pushing the limits for many people. It can be as long as 18 months before you start to see an income rolling in from your website or digital products. It takes a lot of patience to make an online business work.
Am I saying it can’t be done in less than one year? Of course not! I just want you to realize that is not the norm.
Bait the hook
We can’t create a couple hundred dolor product and expect people to buy it without ever hearing our teaching style or our method of doing things. We have to take them on a free to paid journey. Another words we have to give them a free sample of our work before we expect them to buy our stuff.
Start with a plan
Setting up a plan to reach your goals will help you reach your destination much faster. You can’t go into starting a business without knowing who you are trying to reach and what their most difficult struggle is. To have a successful business you have to create a solution to a problem.

I want you to know the realities of starting your own business. It’s tough and you will have times where you wonder if you are doing the right thing. Is it worth it? Absolutely, 1000times yes.
