The Solopreneur Challenge: What do I focus on?

If you’re in the planning stages of starting a solopreneur type business, or maybe you already launched one, you’ll more than likely be having the same thoughts and questions that all the other solopreneurs have.

Questions like:
• How do I start?
• What should I focus on?
• How can I possibly get all this stuff done?
• What about all that techie stuff that I’m supposed to know and do?

Well, first of all, I’d just like to say, ‘You’re not alone.’

Become a Person of Impact Later in Life

Have you ever thought of reinventing yourself? Maybe you’ve been in a situation that forced you to do that. Maybe you’re thinking about doing it voluntarily.

But why would anyone even think about doing that? Why would anyone want to?

Well, I’ve been in situations before where I knew I wasn’t living my best life…at all, and I just wanted to do something about it. It’s sort of that ‘ok’ lifestyle. Just working in an ok job and getting an ok paycheck. Just settling. Just accepting. Just paying the bills.

But friends, there’s a better way. There’s a better life out there…for you. For many of us, we live in countries that still offer opportunity and a hope of a better future.

So don’t settle. Don’t settle for an ok life in an ok job. Because being ok is safe. Being ok keeps you in your comfort zone. Being ok doesn’t rock the boat and make any waves.


Taking the Next Step- A New Choice

Making a decision
I mentioned in a much earlier episode that I made a later in life pivot.. a few of them actually and so I sort of know what it’s like to face change and to step out of the comfort zone.
Now for some, change can happen in a number of ways:
• It could be voluntary for many reasons
o Maybe you want to retire with purpose and you’ve had this idea in your head for awhile
o Maybe you’re already retired either from the military or the workforce and you want to try life 2.0 but this time doing something that makes you feel alive
• Or maybe this life change you’re going through isn’t voluntary and you’re scrambling a bit to figure some things out
o It could be because of a job loss
o It could be because of a divorce
o It could be a number of reasons
Either way, voluntary change or involuntary change, it’s still change. And that’s something that a lot of people have a hard time with.
But if nothing changes, then everything will stay the same right?

following after your dreams

Vision-Essential Building Block #1-Laying a Strong Foundation to Your Business

Vision or Dream?
So..What’s the difference between dream and vision? Aren’t they basically the same thing?
Dream and vision are not the same thing.
A dream is a more lofty idea you have in your head without a lot of details. I’d like to retire and live in a more southern state where it’s warmer and have a decent retirement income from my business, or the sale of my business. No details. Exciting, but painless.
A vision is a dream solidified. Take your dream and attach a strategy. Now add the goals and tactics you’ll need to perform the strategy. Now you have a vision.

Be Successful With A Positive Mindset

We live in a time where it’s very easy to get discouraged and think that only the wealthy can have opportunity and success.

We seem to have a knack for dwelling on the negative, not the positive. We have to be taught to be positive thinkers and many people even pay to hop on someone’s course or community just to be part of the positive mindset and get help thinking and believing that a positive future is possible and obtainable.

And when it comes to our dreams it can be easy to talk ourselves our of the very dream we thought up in the first place.

Does your dream seem like a nightmare?

Does the task of starting a business seem either vague, or daunting, or expensive, or something that just takes too much time or money? Does your dream seem more like a nightmare?

Does any one…or ALL of these things stop you in your tracks so that you WANT to start a business, but you just can’t seem to get excited about it and actually DO something?

what is your mission

Starting a Business From the Inside Out

Some people may be struggling with not only developing their mission, but not even knowing what the mission is supposed to be. But where does the ‘mission’ fit into the bigger picture here of our lives?

If you’re unsure at to what your mission in life would be, knowing what your strengths are, and weaknesses, will help you decide. Everyone is good at something, whether you’re born with a certain talent or skill, or if you have some other talent that gets developed over time and turns out to be something that you love to do, or maybe it’s some sort of hidden talent that you never even thought you had.
