Questions for you:
It all starts with WHY? Why do you want a business? And then WHY will someone else want to join you and have their own business. Invest 18 minutes in this classic TED Talk from Simon Sinek. Remember this “Golden Circle.” When you’re tempted to stumble over to “How” do I do this or “What” do I do, remember it all starts with WHY.
·Clear objectives for the next 90 Days…What results will be worth it for you? Example: $1000/month income. WHY? What will it mean to you? Start in paying off debt? Funding kid’s programs? Deposit on a new place to live? Recognition? Be specific. It’s not the $$ that will motivate. It’s what does the $$ mean to you? In pictures? WHY?

How’s support from your family or support team?
Of course it’s ideal that everyone’s on board and fully supportive. Note: you may want to reach out to some mentors to talk with the family. At the very least, look for ‘benignly neutral.’ Support with family matters when you’re working on business. Ideally a bit on the ‘encouraging’ side and then— looking ahead, of course, to the time when they begin to see the results you’re working for and then support is often easier to come by.

Decide who will be your primary mentor. As soon as you start, there will be ideas from everywhere. Often online, or from promotions or suggestions from random sources. This is when it’s important to stay focused, and decide who you’re going to follow. Think of joining the business as joining a sports team. There may be many good coaches, and many good plans. What will not work is continuing to switch back and forth. When you get to Master Coordinator, you can get creative. Until then, follow your mentors and stay focused!
