Life has a funny way of leading you down new paths. Sometimes it takes being put in an uncomfortable situation to open your eyes to opportunities that are just waiting to be taken advantage of. It’s always been my dream to be a business owner. I’m not sure what about the entrepreneurial spirit that inspires me most, but it’s something I crave.
I’ve have visions of dress shops, makeup lines, consignment stores, and even an idea for a product that I’d love to make a reality. Other than the fact that I have NO IDEA where to start with product development, I just don’t have the guts to plunge my family into debt with a business loan and hope it all works out. It’s the way it has to be but it feels selfish to me. I know it’s not, but I just don’t have that much confidence in myself–yet.
So I am going to explore the idea of a small consulting business. Taking on some clients to assist with digital marketing. Ideally I will be doing more training and strategizing for these businesses than actual day-to-day tasks, but I’ll be happy to just be working with business owners. I feel this is a good way to start. Low to no overhead and the opportunity to make my own hours.
I am hoping the more I work with business owners the more inspired and confident I will become. For now, I am going to create a new opportunity and see if it leads to any more!
