Excuses we all have them. Yup even me. I have a ton of excuses why I shouldn’t do things. But ask people to start a second stream of income and this is what you hear:
I’d love to start a business but - I don’t have any money.
I’d love to start a business but - I don’t have the time.
I’d love to start a business but - I can’t quit my job right now.
I’d love to start a business but - I don’t know how to code/write/sell/etc.
I’d love to start a business but - I have a family.
I’d love to start a business but - I don’t have a great idea.
I’d love to start a business but - I don’t have enough energy.
Are any of these excuses valid? No.
We live in the greatest time in human history. All the information we want is available to us for free of cost. Putting anything on the global internet is mostly free. All we need to do is get off our butts from in from of the TV and put down that beer.
You don’t need a lot of money.
You definitely have the 2 hours out of 24 every day.
You don’t need to quit your job.
You can learn how to code/write/sell/etc or partner with a friend who does.
The best business people have families who they love
Ideas are all around you – they are problems that people have. Look for problems. Your business is to solve them.
Eat right and exercise to get more energy.
Right now, people of all walks of life, all over the world, just like you are finding the time to do something extra. Something that gives them freedom. These people realized that:
They could do their business on the side.
They took advantage of what they already had.
They did it little by little.
They all had obstacles, many of them greater that the obstacles that we face every day. But despite limited time, lower amounts of energy and limited skills, they still decided to do it.
You can too.
