What qualifies me to help you build or restore your business? For starters, I am an accomplished businesswoman. In 2008, I took a fearless leap of faith in myself and jumped head first into the entrepreneurial pool. In eight years, I turned a concept of a start-up business into one producing nearly a million dollars per year. I had never run my own business before, but I knew that I had the forward-thinking ability, creative energy, leadership qualities, motivation, and hustle to make it happen!
My forward thinking allowed me to think outside the box in a business full of old school thought. My creative energy allowed me to market myself and business in various ways again outside of the norm. My involvement as a team player and leader is what kept communication and time management a reality. My motivation and hustle led me to make it happen every day, even when I seemed to be running in circles.
The saying "don't give up…" must be a self-fulfilling prophecy. Being the "owner" or "CEO" of a start-up business does not mean you get to sit back and cash the checks. That takes years to accomplish. This one dream or concept will crush a business before the website is even live. Running a business - whether it be a new business or a multi-million dollar corporation - must be worked and worked properly, every day and every year until that business is sold. This is the ultimate goal of a business owner - to have a product that possesses a profitability factor allowing them to sell all of their blood, sweat, and tears. Yes, all three, which creates a great revenue to retire with. This is the goal, and this is not accomplished at the starting line.
A business is an economic organization that must change and grow with time. Have you found yourself saying, “Don’t fix it if it is not broken?” Well, if you have not been constantly updating or growing your business it may not broke, but it may be time for a good tune-up. Running a business is hard work, to put it lightly. This is why 33% of new businesses fail in the first year, while 50% fail by the fifth year. Of those businesses left, only 33% will remain in business after the 10-year mark.
I encourage you to see the issues you are facing with your business as a challenge and a place to grow from rather than perceive them as a problem, and to view these challenges as an advantage. Often times if one is able to change their viewpoint they begin to see solutions instead of issues. This is where I come in. I have not been in the trenches with you (yet), so I see things with clear perspective, from a bird’s eye view.
If you are a new business owner or a business owner who is struggling in the modern age, I am here to help you take your business to the next level. I am here to help you "live the American Dream" of business ownership, which will allow you time to enjoy life as a business owner AND as the profitable seller of a successful business. Don't let your fears hold you back from accomplishing your dreams. You are able to have it all, and I am here to help show you how that’s possible. It's not going to be an easy journey, but it will be worth it!
