4 Major Things To Consider When You Start A Business

BY Michelle Slote

Yay, you are about to start a business! Have you every considered these 4 things? These 4 things can make or break your business. Read now, pin for later.

When you want to start a business, there is a wrong and a right way to do it.

I am here to guide you on how you can start a business the right way.  Ask yourself these questions so that you are able to make massive impact in the world, make money, and truly live out your life's purpose; A.K.A. start a business.

Consideration Number One – “How's my mindset?”

If you start a business from a mindset of ‘lack', then lack is what you will receive.  Start your business with a positive vision of your future, visualize this daily, affirm it, claim it, and be grateful for it, as if you've already received it. Abundance is available to you, but a mindset of ‘lack' stops that abundance from flowing to you.

Let's tackle another mindset issue; fear. If you begin your mindset from a place of fear, you open yourself up to vulnerability… and not the “Oh, attract my tribe!” kind of vulnerability.

Consideration Number Two – “What am I good at?”

Everyone has their zone of genius. Some are fantastic at branding, some are great at writing, while others are great on camera.  Accept your unique gifts, utilize those gifts to better serve your audience.  If you are not great at doing certain tasks within your business ask yourself these questions, #1 Can I outsource it? #2 Do I have the money to outsource it? #3 If not, can I learn how to do it? HINT – You can learn anything if your desired outcome is solid.

Consideration Number Three – “Am I willing to get out there?”

You have to show up every day for your community.  You will build major “like, know, and trust factor” when you give constant value and show up every day for your following.  The question is, are you willing to nod in agreement with this or are you willing to go out and do it?  Start going ‘live', message your target market and ask them about their pain points. Get your name known and become visible.

Consideration Number Four – “What is my mission statement?”

In the beginning of your business, it's tempting to get caught up in the aesthetics of your Instagram and the copy of your Facebook posts.  I've been there.  However, determine what your ‘why' is, first and foremost.  When those long days start taking a toll on you, your ‘why' will push you through. When you truly know why you want to start a business, you can them create your mission statement.  Ask, yourself, how do you want to impact the world? Do you want to provide a product that you have developed? Do you want to provide a service that will transform people's lives? What is the purpose of your business? What is the long-term goal? Then ask, how will this impact your life?  All of these questions will provide your ‘why'.

Take this a step deeper and ask yourself, “What story are you trying to re-write? What is my big-picture goal?” Women who own businesses that have big-picture goals that involve making a lasting impact in the world.  Some ladies are in business to create a new money mindset for entrepreneurs. Some women are in business to help disadvantaged women create the businesses of their dreams.  Your big-picture goal is vital. Your big-picture goal will motivate you, mold your business into what it's meant to be and create massive impact in the world. Your big-picture goal will serve as the foundation of your mission statement. Utilize that mission statement to drive your business decisions and help your create clarity on what you need to do in order to reach this big-picture goal.
