Hello SOTGC community,
You already have everything you need … so why do so many of us, especially women, hesitate? Is it because there’s not enough money? What about the issue of time? How many times have you asked or thought you wouldn’t have the time to complete your degree? Or enough time to start your business? Is it because the kids are still in school? Are you on the ushers board at your church? And we must not forget that good ole job. Have you ever felt intimidated by the thought of having no safety net? No job could mean no cash flow, no insurance, no security.
If you have identified with any of the situations above, I am here to tell you that “you already have everything you need.” Deep down inside, you and I both know all of these so-called situations, issues, and challenges are just excuses in disguise. We act and live out of fear because it’s much easier to take the path of least resistance. It doesn’t matter that you are not living out your passion and purpose. Who cares if you never write that book or start that business that could lead to financial freedom, and, more importantly, peace of mind?
Well, if you don’t care … I need to inform you that I do! I need you to understand that the success of your children, your community, society, and the world hinges on your success. Everyone was created to contribute something unique to this world. After all, giving back is the rent we all pay to live on this earth. So … here is the reality: you won’t have enough money to start that business; there will be issues that arise; the kids will need to get to basketball or soccer practice; you will be nervous about stepping out on faith. However, you will persevere if you make the decision to never give up! We are all counting you. The time is not now, it’s Right Now!
Here are a few steps to help get you started:
- Make the decision to “own” your destiny today!
- Create a plan to bring your “dreams” into fruition. This could include visiting your local small business administration office. A list of offices can be found at www.sba.gov.
- Develop your own dream team! Select individuals that will be there to hold you up during difficult times, while also holding you accountable. Your team could consist of the following:
- Business Coach
- Spiritual Partner
- Financial Advisor
- Board of Directors
