August 22, 2014 / by Raquel Royers

successful small businessYou just lie there wide-eyed at night and think about what this can become. This can become something big. This can become the kind of something big that can put the kids through college, create your retirement, give you financial freedom and actually be fun. This is the kind of thing where you can work on projects that YOU think are amazing and that you couldn’t work on when you were working for someone else.

This is no longer a dream. This is the reality of starting your own successful small business. 

Today the challenges of starting and successfully running a business are all over the place. It’s hard to be successful. It’s hard to survive as a company. Plus, running a company is stressful and has a lot of responsibilities.

We get it though. Even though there may be all of these obstacles and challenges that come along with your dream, you’re willing to take a risk to make it happen. You can make this dream a reality and accomplish what your heart has always wanted you to. Follow your passion.

While you are following your passion, you are not only doing this for yourself but more so for the people you love, your community and the industry. You truly believe you can make a difference and want to create a place for people to work who have the same values that you do. 

So, why is starting a small business so alluring anyway?

  • You can be financially independent
  • Success
  • You can achieve your dreams
  • A sense of security
  • The pleasure of doing so
  • You accomplish something
  • Build something
  • Leave a legacy

All these things sound really good but what about the challenges? Yes, of course there are challenges and we’re sure you’ve probably already realized that, which is why you may be holding back. However, if you are truly passionate about your business idea, taking the risk to make it happen will be inevitable.

Every business includes 3 things:

  1. What you offer
  2. The systems and activities
  3. People

In the midst of that you’re going to have 5 challenges:

  1. Developing systems
  2. Finding and keeping good employees
  3. Finding and keeping good customers
  4. Dealing with the stress [responsibilities]
  5. How to find help/advice from people you can trust 

Every person who starts a company starts with a dream. Nobody starts expecting to fail. Starting a small business is very similar to the start of a marriage. Nobody says “I do” expecting to get a divorce [well, very few anyway! You instead say, "I think this can work and understand that there are risks that are involved" but follow your passion and dream anyway.

Every successful business owner starts out where you are. Every successful business owner has lay awake at night thinking of what could be. It’s time to stop dreaming and make it happen.
