You want to start a business! That's great!
It's exciting, overwhelming, nerve racking, wonderful... so many things.
So, once you've decided...where do you start?
There are many paths to choose, trust me. And there is not neccesarily a 'right way'. The key thing is to lay out a plan, with specific starting points, lay out a date for launch and then make it happen. Dates are very imporatant for accountability. If you don't set a timeline for yourself, it's easy to push it back, procrastinate and wait.. for just this one more thing to happen.. or whatever.
Here is how I started my first business:
1. CreateFacebook Page AND Group. Create by DATE:
2. Invite 50 Friends. Invite by DATE:
3. Book 1st event. Event DATE:
4. Goal of participants at event. Participants: 10 (this is what I started for)
Once I set those dates, I wrote them on my calendar (desk calendar, pen and paper!)
Then I worked towards them... I wanted to succeed. Number 3 was the hardest because that would be out of the comfort of my own home. That would be me actually doing it. That would be me starting... but I did it.
And for me, Facebook was the social platform that I felt *most* comfortable with. Nowadays, you have your choices! Start where you feel good, where your friends and community are. Over time, I added instagram, twitter, an online store and a website (Remember, this was my first business- more to come when I started my second business- youtube, merchandise, large scale events and launches).
But in your very first endeavor, makegood plans, make them happen and as always, just keep going.
