How Long Does It Take To Build a Business?
You might not be able to read this article (Herald Sun 2/4/2016), however, the question was about the viability of quitting a job, and consulting back to the industry.
The answer basically is “don’t quit your day job”.
Work on and build your dream job in conjunction with your employment, but do not stop your employment until your own business has built to a steady income of $x00,000 p.a.
Businesses are not created, they are built – with hard work, persistence, determination… and time.
How much time? Until you are satisfied that it is a viable, on-going business, and has reached, or is well on the way to reaching your required level of income. The question is how old will you be when you are at this stage? And more to the point, how old will you be at that point if you have not created the additional income?!
A business is a matter of building Relationships. Without it you are a day-to-day salesman with no job security. In the business of Relationship Marketing and Communication, there is ample assistance and training available, and with technology advancing at such a rate, you have every chance and opportunity to be right on top of the game.
So what is the advice?… Start now, so that you can look forward to running your own ship, with substantial recurring income, in the not-to-distant future.
The sooner that you reach this point, the sooner you can create your own time, and have your own control of your life.
If, of course you are already at home, or do not have regular employment, the answer is definitely Now.
In the article, the person had a specific project in mind. If such does not apply to you, there are many companies with affiliate marketing arrangements which you can tap into, with all the necessary help and assistance readily available.
There will be disappointments, obstacles, and problems…but there is never an end until you say so.
Most of the successful Marketers have run with several products and companies jointly and individually. I call my business, my eShop, which features a range of products and companies.
Diversification is the “job security” that we build into our business.
I trust that you will find this helpful, and that you will build your piece of security.
With my best wishes (I don’t often wish “best luck”; the better you work, the luckier you get)
