Many, many people feel that the road block to their success is they do not have the money. Do you need money for your business idea? That is probably not the real problem. So many times the real problem is not having a plan. Many also may not even be in a position to complete a business plan. How bad do you want it? This is not about how do I get a job or buy into a multilevel marketing program; it is how to secure financial independence. Yes $1,000,000 in the bank, but I’ll bet a lot of people would like to start with $10,000 in the bank or $100,000 in the bank.
If you are an ex-con with almost no resources and trying to find a job or if you are a successful white collar man or woman with $100,000 in the bank making $30,000-$100,000 a year, you still need 3 skills- management, financial, and sales. You may not be able to start your business this month, this year, or for a few years. Instead of having an idea and trying to find $1,000, $10,000, $100,000, or a few million to start your business start working on yourself. Start your business plan now for the company you think you would like to start. If you have no ideas, pick one. Go to the half price book store or Amazon and buy a book on business plans and on “How to start”… a restaurant or brewery or trailer park or a broker dealer or business brokerage firm or you name it. These books might cost $10-15 each. That is about all you have to spend to start a detailed plan, the rest is hard work and developing your plan. Also start getting yourself ready, study sales, management, and finance. The cheapest way to do this is to read, but there are many courses and levels of instruction to develop these skills. So are you really ready to ask for money?
