Excuses are never an option if you want to earn more – Business 101

In this trying financial time, the average Jamaican can only save or invest more if they have a second avenue of income. Getting a second job is not so easy as flex-time has not yet materialized. The only other option is to start a side business. This is easier said that done. The challenge is getting someone to change their mindset from an employee to a mini -entrepreneur. Once you introduce them to this alternative they will kill you with excuses:

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.
