It appears that even though the economy seems to be down, that lately starting small businesses seems to be a trend. I feel that the tool of social media give a lot of people hope in the area of starting their own small business. Millions of people and possible clients can be reached at the click of a Hutton- and that is exciting.
As it has always been a dream of mine to start my own business, I decided to look into the book called “Launch Your Dream- A 30-Day Plan For Turning Your Passion Into A Profession,” by Dale Partridge. Here are some of my favorite quotes from this book:
“If stress is defined as working hard st something you dislike, then tens of millions of Americans are on their way toward a career-based nervous breakdown.”
“Entrepreneurship is difficult, but failing to follow your dreams is worse. Living a meaningless life is harder.”
“Fear is a neuteal emotion; all that matters is what you do with it…… fear steals more dreams than failure ever will.”
“See the problem of a storm as the promos of a better future.”
“If you learn to confront the storm, you’ll conquer the storm.”
“Today isn’t rehearsal. This is your life.”
“Preparation in the present is paramount to your success in the future. Remember, it wasn’t raining when Noah built he ark.”
“Debt is a vicious murderer with a thirst for your business’s blood. And worse, he is sneaky. He’ll creep up on you when you’re not watching and slit your start-up’ so throat. So do everything you can to keep him out of your life. By debt, I’m not just referring to a million-dollar like of credit; I’m talking about a hundred-dollar balance on your American Express. If you can’t pay cash, you can’t afford it. And this is true no matter what the “it” is. As Benjamin Franklin said, “Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship.”
The “Launch Your Dream” book walks through a business plan and how to create one.
It gives great tips and advice such as avoiding partnerships, choosing and designing logos, growing an audience, sticking to a work schedule, making your company legal, handling financial accounting, customer service, and values in treating employees.
I would strongly suggest reading this book if you are someone who dreams of starting their own business or even if you have already started one.
