There are many things you need to do to start your own business. Today we should talk about drive. Do you have it in you? I’ve heard it all from my “friends” how easy it is to have your own freelance business and they “wish” they were in my easy chair. For some reason there’s the stigmatism out there that starting your own home based business is as easy as snapping your fingers.
If you feel this way, I’m going to play the part of the cooler now. You are missing something very important. If you want to start your own business especially a freelance business, you need to have drive and be determined in everything you do for your business. You will work harder and smarter than anyone you know because you’ll have no supervisor to push you. However, the pay off is great in this business and it will be well worth it to you.
Here’s what to have to keep in the back of your mind at all times. You see, you are completely on your own. You have none to give you work and you have no one to give you direction. On top of that, you have no one to pay you on the 15th and 30th of each month.
In this crazy business, you’ll need a thick skin. Especially if you’re just starting out and have no money coming in to pay the bills. You’ll need to handle a lot of things for your business while you are working and finding projects.
However, the good side to this is that you’ll have a good business that will be very rewarding. Plus, you’ll have a more flexible time schedule to allow you to maybe to do things that you couldn’t do when you were working from 9 to 5 and that’s a good thing.
