It can be confusing when you decide to start a business. You see all of the different successful people out there and you know you want that too. However, you don’t know what type of business you want for yourself.
So let’s talk about finding the business that’s right for you and overcoming the wait on your purpose.
Back in 2016 when I decided to start my stationery business, I did it because I loved planning, stationery, and stickers! I thought it would be fun to create a business around that. It wasn’t until actually starting and launching that I realized my business had a much bigger purpose than just stationery.
Imagine if I never started The Stationery Muse, I wouldn’t be here to help you today!
This same situation can apply to your life and future business. When you first set out to get started the overall purpose might not be super clear. The good news is that it’s OK. Just because you are unsure of your purpose doesn’t mean that you have to wait. If anything it’s time to dive in, embrace the journey, and accept the lessons along the way.
So don’t get hung up on the purpose just yet. If it’s placed on your heart it’s there for a reason. So I give you full permission to go for it!
So now what, you know that you want to get started but you’re still not sure what you business should be about.
Take a moment to do a massive brain dump in your favorite journal or digital notetaking platform. Get all of the possible business ideas out of your mind and on to paper. Be as open with yourself as possible during this process. Anything that you’ve ever thought of can go on this list.
Then, answer the following question for each of the ideas you wrote down.
Can this benefit someone?
Can this create income for me?
Can I enjoy it even if it doesn’t bring income right away?
Remember that when starting a business as a soloprenuer it makes it so much easier when you ACTUALLY enjoy what you do. That’s the beauty of having your business. So pick something you truly love outside of making money.
After you answer these questions take a look at your brain dump list. Which of these ideas can you realistically launch in the next 3-6 months? The sooner you can get started the better. Don’t procrastinate any longer!
Commit to one and make it happen!
