Most people stay in the ‚wishing‘ stage for years without ever doing anything about it. Talking about their plans and ideas will usually help an entrepreneur to stop wishing and start doing.
However that being said talking is still not enough, entrepreneurs need to get the ball rolling, this doesn’t mean diving in at the deep end, taking business management classes or learning more about markets can be a great way to get started.
Even the smallest enterprises need a business plan. A business plan will help an entrepreneur to prepare for every possible outcome; however it’s important not to get stuck obsessing over the planning stage.
Introducing a new business to the world is an exciting and nerve wracking experience. Entrepreneurs should remember to take a step back and enjoy this landmark moment
After the initial excitement of launch day, almost all businesses experience a lull where business drops. This is often a good time to regroup and refocus; entrepreneurs should refer to their business plan and appeal to others for feedback, and adjust their approaches accordingly.
6) Imposter Syndrome.
Imposter Syndrome is a real phenomenon which leads many entrepreneurs to feel out of their depths and question their abilities. This is completely normal, business is a constant learning curve therefore there will always be ample opportunity to learn and grow.
7) Gain Information
When business becomes steady, many entrepreneurs choose to fill in the gaps in their knowledge and skills set in order to take their business in the direction they want.
This is when everything levels out and starts to look positive.
The Fear of failure, or the realisation that they no longer have job security often pop up in an entrepreneurs mind after periods of positivity. On the plus side they do help entrepreneurs to stay grounded.
At this stage entrepreneurs often need a bit of help. Hiring talented individuals can help take some of the pressure off and help the business to reach new goals.
11) Making Changes
At this point entrepreneurs often feel confident enough to seek out new approaches and more efficient business techniques
12) Business as Usual
This means everyday tasks become easier, and that an entrepreneur can relax safe in the knowledge they have the skills to keep their business afloat.
