Do you plan to start a business on the net?
Then read on… because this is about those
things you really need to start a business online.
In a hurry? Watch the summary here.
So this post won’t be about some fancy software, trainings and webinars, tricks, loopholes or strategies – that comes later.
This post is about the right mindset, about your skills, abilities and capabilities to get started the right way and to keep your business up and running, sometimes against all odds.
Entrepreneurial mindset to jumpstart a business online
First of all, you need an entrepreneurial mindset to start a business online. You’ll need to learn to think and act as an entrepreneur.
However, there is no need to challenge yourself or others. There is
no need to seek risks. You’ll meet plenty of them on your journey.
As one of the most important skills, you will have to learn to decide. After all, it’s your company, right? You decide. But don’t forget that you have to live with the result of each one of your decisions.
So never act impulsively, always think twice before you decide.
Heard about lifelong learning? Well, that’s what you can expect if you start a business online. Here is my tip: Get help and guidance, get a coach. Or look for a mentor, for someone who has done what you want to do, who has already been there. Both can help you save much time and a lot of money on the long run. But do not follow any advice blindly…
Never forget about your loved ones. They need you as much as you need them. So make sure that there will be enough time left to spend with them. Your goals for your business are important but they’re not everything. Family and friends, people who love, trust and believe in you are, those who you love and trust, are.
Last but not least, prepare yourself to face the unknown. Get used to new things that will cross your way. And get used to make decisions without knowing exactly whether things will work out for you or not.
That’s what entrepreneurial mindset is all about…
Or, as Aaron O’Hearn, Co-founder and CEO of Startup Institute said:
“You will never know enough. You will always be forced to make a decision without fully understanding what is coming. As a founder, that is just something you have to get comfortable with.” (Source: Mashable)
