I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “It takes a village” before – in most cases, people use it in reference to raising a child. The idea is that parents need support when it comes caring for little ones.
And while there are folks who do make it through the process almost completely on their own, it does most certainly help to have a solid support structure behind you when taking on such a monumental task.
Today we are going to apply that term to starting a new business venture – because the very first steps in entrepreneurship are not all that dissimilar to the challenges many face as a new parent.
There are long days, filled with hard work and stress, there are sleepless nights and constant nurturing. Fear of the unknown and and unparalleled desire for success. And just like embarking on the journey of beginning a family – having a solid and experienced support structure in place when starting a business can help ease some of the stress and smooth out what might otherwise be a bumpy transition.
You can get the help you need to speed up you success in business in a number of ways. You can look for a mentor who has walked a very similar path with success in the past; you can hire a professional business coach and work with them one on one to strategize; you can join a local networking group and participate in regular meetings; or you could join a reputable online community.
When I first started my journey into online entrepreneurship there weren’t as many possibilities out there for help. There weren’t a multitude of business coaches who specialized in online earning and the structured communities were few and far between.
As a brand new entrepreneur, with little in the way of start-up capitol and very limited knowledge, I tried the “do it alone” approach. And while I’m still alive and kicking and earning money online today, I believe that my journey would have been much easier and much more lucrative if I’d had the help of some knowledgeable support people along the way.
I highly recommend that new online entrepreneurs and online earning hopefuls join the Wealthy Affiliate community.
