People usually have a certain amount of chaos in their
lives, however there are times when there is more turbulence
than ever. Even looking at chaos as stress, things like
losing a job or source of income is a major event on the
stress-o-meter. So if we have waited until a real crisis
arose before we took action to start a home business, it’s
going to be more chaos.
Starting a business has a lot of it’s own chaos even on a
good day! Not to mention all the new information and emails
from everywhere, etc – Not the best time to develop a
sensible plan, and as a result, lots of short-cuts may
actually be necessary due to the critical time element where
finances are concerned (bills due).
This scenario is another reason why we should ‘just do it’
now, instead of ‘one of these days’ we are going to start
our own business. Just like preparing for an emergency or
having a contingency plan, start trying to make more money
now. Whether we save some money or pay off something, having
more money is the answer to a lot of our problems.
Particularly when nothing is ever guaranteed anymore as far
as our ability to get a good job and support ourselves and
our families, we have to always be doing more, just to run
along-side to keep up with the rising cost of living — it
keeps on rising whether our income stays the same or gets to
be less or even none! So it is time to start building
something for yourself.
We need to stay on top of it. We have to prioritize our
time and efforts and conserve all our resources in order to
have enough positive energy and strength to start working to
run our own business, often IN ADDITION to still working a
regular ‘day job’, working part-time job(s), raising a
family, etc etc etc. We have to find the time somewhere and
also need sleep so as to stay healthy. So about the only
time we can sacrifice may be ‘play time’ and that is why
our home business must be a priority, so that we are willing
to make sacrifices to get what we want and need.
In a huge sense when we can do this, we are then no longer
as vulnerable to one entity for example an employer who may
have to let us go for various reasons that are nobody’s
fault, it’s just the way it is. So we need to keep on
evolving and gaining momentum with all the various things we
can do to take control of our own lives. If it helps look at
it like a hobby- the making money hobby.
Yes that sounds better if you have to have a job and
starting a business sounds like a second job, call your new
business a hobby! Of course if your job is your hobby you
will really like it! Have fun with it and remember why you
are maybe going to work twice as hard for a while until you
have everything up and running and going for you – then it
is time to coast a little, but you always need to stay
engaged and keep it running with the least chaos possible.
