Panic-Stricken New Business Owner? Chill... TAKE AN E
... An E for EXCITEMENT!
Or even a couple of Es? Excitement and Enthusiasm.
Because YOU DESERVE TO BE EXCITED.
You've successfully integrated your business plan into a physical entity - what a feeling! You're now responsible for something new and innovative, and you're now in charge of feeding it, nurturing it and building it into something bigger.
Every business opportunity, every deal, and every moment relates directly back to you; it's no wonder that you may naturally feel a little out of your depth. So, for those moments where you lose focus and start to question what you're doing (we all do it) it's crucial to remember this:
YOU DESERVE TO BE EXCITED. You've taken an enviably brave step so many others will never take in their entire lives. You're learning on the job, and that's the best way to do it so embrace it. With any job there comes responsibilities and therefore worries - but that's natural, except this time you're in charge. Excited yet? You should be.
Read on to see why being excited about your business is the best remedy to your natural business anxieties.
1. Playing A Bigger Role
Staying within the confines of a 9 to 5 job you have almost no control over will never be inspiring. Your day to day schedule and future career path are totally out of your control, and this does not maximize your potential. However when you own a start-up, you have the chance to solve problems and play a part in defining and creating something bigger in the way that you want it to be. In essence, you are in charge of your career and your business's destiny - exciting right?
2. A Reason To Innovate
As a startup, you have the chance to mold your new business into something different and bold. You have the power to shake things up as and when you like, without getting sign off from archaic business structures. Under the seemingly safe safety net of any corporate entity, taking small risks and small steps is the usual way to do business. However, your new found business comes with the advantage of maximum exploration, taking on exciting challenges and ultimately trying out-of-the-box methods and techniques. Why? Because you're the boss.
3. Bye Bye Hierarchy
This is your startup, a breath of fresh air, a new way to do business. No longer are you held back by Directors hiding in their offices, making unjustified demands, instead you're your own boss and therefore make every decision with valid justification and real purpose. Have a brave marketing idea? Go for it. Want to try selling a new product? Absolutely. Ready to switch your website design up 10 notches? Do it. Every opinion, idea and plan you have will be taken seriously and instigated to develop your new business.
Lastly, startups in today's world are doing crazy-cool things. Dreams are becoming successful realities. Startups have their own unique cultures, many exclusive benefits and will remain the best step you'll ever take for self development and personal growth. So, are you ready to take a couple of Es?
