Are You Ready?

By Stephen Currier
Posted Tuesday, November 9, 2004

Talent alone won't make you a success. Neither will being in the right place at the right time, unless you are ready. The most important question is: "Are you ready?"

Johnny Carson

Have you thought about starting your business? Do you know that 90% of Americans have thought about it, but only 10% have taken the plunge. Now, why do you think that is? Have we lost our need to be independent from others? Or have we become so dependent on our JOBS that we are too afraid to try?

Most of our great grandparents were all business owners of some kind. Farmers,ranchers,store owners,blacksmiths,tailors,shipbuilders,guides,etc. who provided a service or products in exchange for other services and products. We've gone from a society of business owners to a society of employees.

Why? Is it the security that a JOB gives us emotionally? Is your JOB really as safe and secure as you think and hope it is? Look around at what is going on in the world and be brutally honest with yourself. Most jobs can disappear overnight. Do you want to leave your families security in the hands of someone else?

Now is the time to start that business that you've always thought about. There is no better time,if you wait till,you have more money,more time,less stress or whatever excuse that you want to use,you'll never start. Starting is half the battle,once started,it tends to self motivating.

Starting a business has been described as standing on the edge of a cliff and stepping off with a great leap of faith. Faith in yourself, most of all,and a determination to reach your goals no matter what it takes.

So the question remains,Are You Ready? Ready to take the steps that can and will set you on the path to financial freedom,and peace of mind?

There are a multitude of opportunities available today. From MLM, network marketing to franchises. There is a business that you CAN succeed at.

One that I can recommend is an online business that is not expensive to start and only requires a 5-10 hrs a week of consistent and steady action to build. The key ingredient is action,the one thing that most people are afraid to do. Are you one of them? The learning curve on any new business can be very steep at first, but if you will commit yourself to that business for at least 1 yr of consistent, steady action, then you will be successful.

Are you ready to make the small sacrifices today that will allow you to have financial peace of mind? The $100 cable service, the cell phone that is more of a status symbol than a necessary part of your life,eat hamburger and chicken in stead of steak and pork chops. Are you ready to invest in yourself and your future with your time and your money.

Anyone who has ever looked at starting a business knows that it takes some money to start and build a business. I won't tell you that it doesn't,however, you can find a business that takes a small investment to start. But you can build a business without spending very much but,that means it will take longer and require more of your time to become profitable. Are you ready to put up the money and the time required? If not now,when? When it's too late to enjoy the building process,when its a matter of feeding and housing your family? Do you really want to be in that position?

So I ask again,Are YOU ready?
