Doing It Your Way

Here are a couple of questions for you to think about. Do you have a passion or talent that you wish you could spend more time doing? Do you think about the “what if’s” and “how can I” when it comes to turning that passion or talent into a marketable business enterprise of some kind?

Here are a couple of questions for you to think about.

Do you have a passion or talent that you wish you could spend more time doing? Do you think about the “what if’s” and “how can I” when it comes to turning that passion or talent into a marketable business enterprise of some kind?

I can tell you that you’re not alone when it comes to brainstorming for that one idea that can turn you with your passion and talent into a successful business. I was there back in 2000 working a full-time job that I liked well enough, a job that provided for my needs, but I wanted more. I wanted the freedom to run by own business with the limitless potential my hard work could produce.

Now, nearly 13 years later I am a business-owner. With that title comes a certain kind of freedom, responsibility and, of course, hard-work. One of the keys to the “businessowner kingdom” is to make sure you are doing what you love to do. I love designing, being creative and the technical computer applications that are used these days to design and create. That combo was my “brainstorm” that, in the early days, produced long days, nights and weekends of work. The thing is because I love what I do it doesn’t seem like work at all!

If I can offer you a second bit of advice it’s that the harder you do work toward your goal an eventual payoff will be yours in due time. For many months and years I was full-on working a full-time job by day and pounding away at the computer late into the night. It was that perseverance and consistent effort that helped get my business off the ground.

Once I made the decision to let go of my full-time job and to take the plunge by going solo with J.E.G. Design, Inc. it didn’t take long for me to realize it was the best move I ever made.

There are lots things to consider when you’re contemplating starting a business of your own and as you begin to walk that path remember that balance is of the utmost importance. Work hard is important – yes - but know when to take some down time. I’m not suggesting you become lazy but that you take a little time away from the intensity of your start up by taking a walk, go golfing or do whatever relaxes and energizes you. The fresh enthusiasm you’ll bring back will fuel you forward toward doing it your own way!
