I snagged this from Seth Godin’s blog Wed. morning. I love his simple breakdowns for everything. Don’t overthink it. Just do it.
Start your first business this way: Begin with the smallest possible project in which someone will pay you money to solve a problem they know they have. Charge less than it’s worth and more than it costs you.
You don’t have to wait for perfect or large or revered or amazing. You can start.
Brendon Burchard, another great thought leader in the industry, suggests that we find something for which we can become expert. Whether it’s wood working or basket weaving, something that you’re passionate about and you know more than the average Joe.
And really, that’s all it takes to begin teaching and charging for your information.
No crazy startup costs; no elaborate plans. Start small. And start with what you know and love.
I leave you with this: What do you love? What are you willing to become an expert/lifelong learner? There’s your purpose.
