4 problems solved when starting a business

Daniel Voss

 

Creativity is a skill we all have. It is a spark that can set off a brilliant chain of events for you. Think about that idea you had one day that made you think, “That’s brilliant!” We have all experienced this moment but few of us pursue the materialization of this idea. But why? Is it money? Is it drive? Is it a lack of guidance? Is there a feeling of insecurity about battling established businesses?

These concerns are common among business owners and entrepreneurs. The beauty of common issues is the fact that they have common solutions. Let’s explore them one by one.

1: Money

A lack of rock-solid capital assets is a concern for any business owner, yet you hear story after story about a small start-up company reaching levels of success that only exist in our wildest dreams. There are many businesses that have started with modest means. A common thread among those who succeed is a properly constructed business plan. This tool may serve as your first and most valuable asset to your company. Through the instrument of adequate planning, a business knows its limitations and goals. After all, in order to run a race, one must know where they begin and where they will end.

This tool will guide you to the finish line, giving your business a road map to success, leading to solid capital gains and educated financing options.

2: Drive

Another common trait of successful business owners is their impeccable drive. Do a quick search for successful business owners and you’ll see that they aren’t lazy. These individuals possess a level of discipline to which we should all strive. How do they have this supreme ambition? In a word, passion. Think about that creative idea you had. How did it make its way into your consciousness? Maybe it was a matter of necessity, or improvement on an existing idea, or perhaps it came from something that brings you joy. Whatever the case, it came from something holding great personal importance, something you already have the passion for; all you need to do is focus that passion.

Steer that passion into the function of your business plan and success is a matter remaining steadfast and focused.

3: Guidance

The best athletes in the world always have someone to look up to. Be it a coach, a parent, or a personal role model, they all have someone in which they can confide. In the wake of the recent Olympic Games, every champion had someone to thank for their guidance. As their nation’s flag rose above them and all eyes were on the gold medalist, that person was looking at their mentor through tear-glossed eyes, giving a look that said “thank you” without any words.

A business owner has to find this mentor or supporter. Whether it is your spouse, mother, father, friend, or even the inspiration from someone in your past, find that support to keep you on track and successful.

4: Competition

Everyone loves a good underdog story. Persevering in the face of adversity turns those with potential into stories of greatness. My favorite story of perseverance is that of Jim Valvano and the 1983 NC State Men’s Basketball team. Facing formidable opponents through the entirety of the 1983 NCAA Basketball Championship tournament, an undersized and under-experienced team and coach found success through the successful implementation of their plan; fueled by an unrelenting passion.

A business owner can achieve a similar feat. In today’s business world, there are tools at your disposal and proven practices you can utilize to make your idea materialize and flourish.

We are here to help you make your plan, focus your passion, sharing our knowledge to guide your efforts, and put all these traits together so you can be competitive.

Think about that creative idea. Can you make it happen? Yes. Just remember: plan, passion, push, and perseverance.
