If you’re here with questions like: “How will I know when it’s time to start my own business?” “How can I know it’s time to follow my passion?” “How can I tell if I’m ready?” I’m so, so happy to tell you — it’s time. Right now. This is it.
That’s it. That’s the big secret. The time is now. It’s been now.
The truth is, there is only one way to tell if you aren’t ready, and that’s if you simply do not care enough. If your heart isn’t in launching your own business and pursuing your passions and working for your dream, then ya ain’t ready. The entrepreneur world is big and beautiful, but it is also new and mysterious, and if you don’t have the drive you won’t make it past the first “I don’t know what I’m doing” moment.
If you spoke to your brain, and your brain checked in with your gut, and your gut checked in with your heart, and you came back with a big, “meh.” Then yeah, keep doing what you’re doing. Carry along.
But EVERYONE else: it’s go time.
Don’t know the how but know the what? It’s time to start.
Don’t know the exact what but know the want? It’s time to start.
Don’t know who will support you, how you’ll make it all work, where your time will come from and if your energy will last, but know you were made for more and are ready to pursue the business you’ve always seen yourself shining in? It’s time to start.
Because here is the ugly truth you must understand: Waiting is toxic.
Waiting makes space for doubt and fear to creep in which eat all the goods things that are inside you like motivation and creativity. By waiting, you are hurting yourself on the inside as well as your chances of “making it” on the outside.
It’s like pushing a beautiful budding flower back into the ground. Why would you do that? That baby needs to bloom to reach her full potential! You are the seed! You are the bud! You are the bloom! Underground in the dark ain’t your home anymore, Queen.
Maybe you’ve heard the quote, “action is the antidote to anxiety.” Sheesh… ain’t that the truth? The fastest way to start is to simply do. That doing is the only real difference between you and all the successful, entrepreneurial women you see out there. So often we as humans and a society are taught to “wait until you’re ready,” but so, so many of my clients come to me totally un-ready. In fact, they often show up with nothing more than the desire to be ready, and that is good enough. That, we can work with.
“Ready” doesn’t mean years and years of training and experience. “Ready” doesn’t mean you have to have a major trust fund sitting in the bank waiting for you to hit the GO button. “Ready” doesn’t mean having a huge chunk of free time fall from the sky. “Ready” doesn’t mean having an Instagram-worthy home office waiting for its close-up, it just means you are done waiting… You simply can not stunt your growth anymore. It’s time to start your business. It’s time to bloom.
