What are your top three tips for those who want to start their own businesses today?
Do it, do it, do it …..and believe that you can
You help people to achieve theirs goals have you achieved yours? Which barriers you have to overcome to achieve your goals?Yes I have, sometimes it helps to be flexible and adapt your approach to achieve your goals and dreams. It also helps to see them as a number of individual elements that make up the end result, this way you can both manage the journey as you will see yourself continuously working towards achieving the goal as well as manging your expectations.This approach ash totally worked for me, it has enabled me to keep focused when curved balls have come into play and to really be able to measure my progress…it can be easy to simply set a goal and say yep I will achieve that in the next two years and then do nothing about it.
Making it manageable is a real benefit, and be creative as well- really think about what you will see hear and feel when you achieve each stage… very powerful
