Last night James Archer held a moderated Q&A on business start-ups or what i cal:Entrepreneur’isms.
While most of the discussion focused on the nuts and bolts of a business, taxes, health insurance, employee management etc.. very little was discussed about the psychology of a successful enterpreneur. I did pipe in shortly about it. The bottom line is that one needs to “get money right” in their own head and move beyond the “job mentality” if they wish to succeed as a small business owner.
Whoring your skillset for a higher dollar wage as a one person shop is a start, but essentially still a job. Only so many hours in a day to earn cash. Internal motivation by pleasure, and learning to leverage your time are keys to starting up a real business. It took me a while to figure these things out.
I was that guy that paid money to attend a seminar taught by a wealth guru. I was also that guy that took what I learned, APPLIED it and quintupled (thats 5x) the earnings of my business, and expanded from as staff of 2 people to 6, in about 1 year.
None of that was the result of Nut and Bolts business stuff, ALL of it was because i got out of my own way. I am still getting out of my own way, Everyday I get further out of my own way the better I do. Curious what I mean by that, “getting out of your own way”? Ask me, I’ll tell you.
