Now That You’ve Decided To Be An Entrepreneur, What’s The Next Step?

Mon, Sep 20, 2010

Home Business, Leadership

We are continuing down our “road to success” from our post titled “Is Social Media Marketing, Internet Marketing and Network Marketing Confusing?(click on title).

Once we have chosen “the road” to become an Entrepreneur, there are many changes we will encounter.  For example, if we come from a family of employees, we will soon see that everyone around us will not understand why we want to become an entrepreneur.  They think we should stay in a “safe, secure job”. 8-O   This is usually where most entrepreneurs hit their first “road block” because the values and beliefs necessary to be an entrepreneur, in my humble opinion, are the opposite of an employee.

This is where we must be willing to lay our new “foundation” for our “beautiful new house” that was mentioned in our last blog post.  The values of an employee are not applicable for an entrepreneur who wants time freedom and financial freedom.
Robert Kiyosaki so eloquently stated these in our post called 8 Financial Myths About Money(click on title).  And as Jim Rohn says “your income is determined by your philosophy” and your philosophy is what you know plus the decisions we make.

Next Fork In The Entrepreneurial Road

The next thing to decide as an Entrepreneur is do we want to work alone or with a team?

Here are a few Questions To Consider when we are choosing our entrepreneurial endeavor:

– When do we want our ideal life?
– Are we always working and busy while earning our monthly income?
– Do we have residual income coming in each month?
– Do we want to travel without having to continue to work?
– Do we ever want to totally retire and have residual income which keeps on growing without us?

Example of Goals To Write Down :

In 30 days, I will make $…

In 90 days, I will make $…

In 6 months, I will make $… & quit my job

In 1 year, I will make $… & buy a car

In 3 years, I will make $… & retire my spouse

In 5 years, I will make $… & vacation in Paris

In 10 years, I will make $… & buy my second house

In 20 years, in 30 years, in 40 years, in 50 years…

Here’s our video where we take you further down the “Road Less Traveled“:

Now we have decided to be an Entrepreneur, and we have decided to work alone or with a team.  We will work on our goals and make some major decisions for our “life plan”.  We look forward to continuing down this road with you in our next blog post titled “Why Teamwork Makes The Dream Work“.  Be sure to subscribe by pressing the orange RSS button at the top of our blog.

    Hi Kelli,

    Sensational blog!

    I like your step by step breakdown of the decisions which a successful entrepreneur must make. The family and friends not understanding part resonates with me. Entrepreneurs were seen as “wheelers and dealers” in my family.

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful insight :)

    Hi Kellie,
    Wow! Thank you for another great article! Being an entrepreneur is surely different from being an employee. As an employee we are out there on our own. When I joined network marketing I learned that Team Work makes the Dream Work. And it’s so much more fun!

    Kellie,
    You not only share ideas on moving ahead with your business, you also give such wonderful questions to answer to define your goals. This is something I did not do when I first started online. I had a vague sense of direction. Now I am much clearer on where I desire to end up.

    You’re giving all the main steps to empower people!
    Val :)

    Brilliant, easy to follow and answer steps! Thanks Kellie! I think this is something the majority of us do not do, we fumble along…. only vaguely knowing where we are going! I am now really drilling down on the direction I wish to take and your steps are exactly how Im going about it. Cheers again Kellie! I really appreciate you! Anna

    Hey Kellie, It definitely is a concept that my family doesn’t understand… so it has been interesting. I hook up with my Entrepreneur friends because they get it… Changing values and beliefs to be an entrepreneur as certainly far different than those of an employee! Thanks for the reminder and your openness to share with us your experiences! It is so nice to know “we” entrpreneurs aren’t alone and someone has gone before!

    Cheers,

    Holly

    Aloha Holly,
    Yes, changing values and beliefs is a tough one that not everyone around us will be willing to understand. Like you said, your entrepreneur friends are here to support you. I am so happy you gained from some of my experiences. That brings me a lot of joy. Much love :)

    Hi Kellie, your advice is truly an important step to implement on the road to entrepreneurship not only because it provides a framework for designing your future, it also offers awareness that there are options available. Like you, I also choose to work with a team because of all of the resources that are already in place to support my growth. Great post, Kellie!

    Kellie, thanks for the list of looking ahead and working out where I want to be. It’s so easy sometimes to get caught up in the ‘now.’ To look ahead reminds me that I’m in this for the long-term, and that some goals can’t be achieved overnight (well, most really!)

    Clarity and commitment open the door to magic manifesting.

    Looking forward to hearing more from you.

    Tricia.

    hi kellie! omg i love your favicon ! ! ! ;)

    i know that goal setting makes many of us groan… and it can seem so cliche. but it’s absolutely paramount when it comes to having success in network marketing.

    my favorite part of your post was the easy goal setting section. anyone CAN do it! =)

    Aloha Melissa,
    Thank you for your kind comments. And I know you know about goal setting and how important it is! I am glad you found it easy so that anyone can do it. Much love & aloha :)

    Thank you Kellie for all the time and thoughtfulness you put into each post..very well thought out. I am a bit resistant to setting timed goals..maybe I’m chicken or maybe I prefer to let it all go the way it ‘should’. Not sure if this is correct thinking or just damned lazy! I will consider some timed goals…(It’s a bit unnerving to set it in stone.)

    Luv u friend! Kim

    Aloha Kim,
    I know what you mean, I felt the same way, however, I found that manifestation and synchronicity happened faster because I expected it to happen. You know, I observed it to happen before it happened, so it went from wave to particle! I’m talking you Quantum language right? Gosh, I love it! Let’s talk about it sometime. I’d love to have a Quantum synergistic mastermind with you!! LOL!! Aloha :)

    Kellie,

    I like the way you laid out this post. Setting times goals really sets the fire under your butt to get it done. Even if you don’t hit the exact mark, never let that stop you or slow you down from continuing to stretch yourself.

    Once you open to the possibilities then anything can happen. Even at the last minute!

    Kellie,
    I love the questions. While I was reading them, I answered the third one right then. I am going to sell the store and move to the coast of SC. I have to really sit down and write the rest of my goals out. Thanks for helping get my head on straight.
