Roadmap to Entrepreneurial Freedom - Part 1

Roadmap to Entrepreneurial Freedom - Part 1

Over the next 5 days. I'm going to lay out the roadmap to becoming an extraordinary entrepreneur. Very often, people share that they have an entrepreneurial calling, and when the conditions are right, they're going after their dreams.

So really, when's the best time to start a business?

  • wait for perfect conditions
  • become debt-free
  • save a year of income
  • and other utopian conditions

FORGET the perfect conditions. Perfect conditions are rare. Let's assume you have an idea for a service or product, starting a business is just making a decision to do so.

** I'm not saying launch tomorrow. I'm saying start your planning today.

These are the 3 stages of launching and growing a small business.

>> (Stage 1) pre-launch planning and preparation (start here)

(Stage 2) postlaunch product/market fit + getting paid really well

(Stage 3) scale and accelerate

You are in stage 1. It all starts here. This part is so simple. Just make a decision TODAY to start. You don't need money to start the planning stage.

But you do need vision and diligence.

Vison = A vision is a precise, clearly defined goal with a detailed plan and timetable for achieving that goal.

Diligence = A learnable skill that combines: creative persistence, a smart-working effort rightly planned and rightly performed in a timely, efficient, and effective manner to attain a result that is pure and of the highest quality of excellence.

What's stopping you from starting stage 1? Only excuses.

I'm a 6x serial entrepreneur in my 37th year. I was homeless when I started this process 37 years ago.

>> JUST START. NOW.
