Smashing Through the Biggest Roadblocks to Starting a Small Business

I started my first “small business” in the 2nd grade, and have successfully started (and continued to run) a number of others since then.

I can tell you there are usually two big roadblocks to making dreams of starting a small business come true. They’re quite simple: getting started, and continuing on.

Sounds a little silly when I put it that way, doesn’t it? But that’s what it boils down to.

In fact, getting started often turns out to be the hardest part. Maybe you know you want to work for yourself, but are unsure of what kind of business to start. Or maybe you have eleventy billion ideas for a small business, but can’t figure out which one would be best. Or maybe you’re afraid of failure, or success.

So you…daydream, but do nothing concrete.

Or maybe you do a lot of research, but it never quite feels like the right moment to move beyond the research stage.

Or you start one project and then drop it a while later when what seems like a better idea comes along. Then you rinse and repeat.

(Ask me how I know those things.)

But the only thing that’s really going to work is if you actually get started, and then continue on.

So I’m putting together a coaching course to help kickstart your small business — and then keep you following through.

But it’s not big bucks. And there IS a catch: You’ll have to actually complete one step before you can go on to the next one.

  • yea, that’s so true. I kept researching how to start a blog and make it successful but it took me forever to actually start a blog, due to me being doubtful I could do it. I just had to jump in and now I wish I did it a lot sooner.

  • What was the business you started in 2nd grade? I resold beef jerky in 4th grade…

    • Well, for some reason I thought it would be a good idea to sell polished rocks that I’d slathered in perfume. I made up some story about them being a rock family or what not. I didn’t say that was a successful business ;)

  • Money Funk

    I used to buy those cinnamon toothpicks from 7-11 for 25 cents a pop and resell them for 50 cents. This was back in 3rd. Fun times!

    Sounds like it’s gonna be a great program!

  • Nice post! I am curious about your coaching program, you should post more about it!

    I have always wanted to start my own business. For right now, I am treating my blog like a business. We will see where that takes me:)

    • I’ll probably mention it again when it gets close to the launch date, but if you sign up for the list you’ll get the details emailed to you.
