Silence your doubts and chase your dream. You are never too prepared to become an entrepreneur
People who want to own their own business but are afraid to do it often produce similar excuses. Because of these excuses, many people cannot start their own business.
Of course, starting your own business is a challenging process and requires a lot of dedication to succeed in this field. Mohab Ayoub, Algedra Interior Design Company’s CEO says that ”The way to success is not easy, and even a person on the road to success may lose hope and motivation when facing obstacles.”
These difficult processes can intimidate many people and cause them to step back. These difficulties experienced by others can turn into excuses for entrepreneur candidates who are afraid to start their own business.
In this guide, we will focus on these excuses:
One of the biggest and most suggested excuses is the age problem. Many people avoid pursuing their own dreams, using their age as an excuse. This is because they are sometimes very old and sometimes too young.
Older people think that it is not possible to start something new after a certain age, it can be difficult to set up some things from scratch. Of course, while starting some things from scratch, some of the comforts obtained must be abandoned.
However, one of the things that should not be forgotten is that, although it reaches a certain age, it gives the opportunity to have many experiences both in business life and personally.
These experiences can be very useful when starting a business from scratch. While making business decisions, starting from these experiences, some problems can be prevented before they even surface.
There are also those who do not take some steps because they are very young. The disadvantage of young people is the lack of experience. However, being at a young age also has its advantages.
You can follow many innovations more closely and adapt to them more easily. This is a good opportunity to do entirely young people; because you know their demands and wishes.
The first job you do doesn’t need to succeed. You can learn some lessons from this job and have experience. In this way, you can learn from your mistakes and sail to new ports.
My environment is not wide enough
However, the fact that your environment is not wide right now does not mean that this will be the case all the time. You can start to expand your environment and promote your business by participating in industry-related events, meeting people in the industry through social channels.
Unless you communicate, others will not try to reach you.
Not enough time
One of the excuses made by people who have a regular job right now is that they don’t have enough time. If you have the idea of starting your own business and you are excused about time; you probably do not fully believe this job and you do not want to waste your time because you do not believe it.
When you have complete faith in your job, you can create the time required. If this job excites you, you can create time and continue both jobs by sacrificing both your social environment and sleep. Lack of time is entirely up to you.
Another excuse is the fear of failure in the work. Everyone is afraid to fail; however, the greatest experiences and life lessons come with failures. When you look at the lives of successful people, you see that these people face certain problems and that they have some successes after failing many times in life.
The reason for this is that failure comes with experience. The more experience you have, the more confident you can take your next step and you will make better decisions.
Therefore, do not view failure as a negative situation. Accept the mistakes you make and encourage yourself to open a new door.
I can’t leave my current job
You will need financial resources to continue your life, and therefore it is important to have a regular job. But if this is getting ahead of your dreams, you have started to make some excuses.
To start your own business, you need to devote yourself to this idea. When you dedicate yourself, the obstacles that you encounter will not be a problem for you.
I don’t have the money to start a business
Another of the biggest excuses is that there is not enough capital. This situation goes beyond excuse and in some cases has a share of reality. However, it is another problem not to start your project due to the shortcomings you have.
If you have a very good project, if this project will solve some problems in the lives of consumers and you really believe in this project, you can start your project and then knock on the investors’ door during the draft stage.
Investors support projects that require a lot of capital and are really ambitious.
Expecting to be perfect
It will not make any sense if you do not implement it after starting your project. Many people expect the job to be perfect at this stage. This is actually another excuse. Because there are some fears behind it.
With such a point of view, you can never make your job perfect; because you want to constantly improve. Instead, start your project as soon as possible and try to perfect your work on the go.
In this way, you can bring the project to a better place by taking the ideas of the end-user, apart from your own ideas. You will start your more important business and you will now have more responsibility.
