Friend Who Didn’t Start
Many years ago, I had lunch with an ex-colleague, now good friend. Let’s call her Cass.
Cass is wonderful at cooking delicious dishes. She is even better at creating cakes, cookies, and all types of baked goods.
She would cook really delectable dishes and baked really yummilicious cakes and cookies. And shared photos of them of her Facebook account.
People would drool and asked her if she sold them? She did not. But was willing to take few orders from friends and family.
During that lunch with Cass, I casually suggested to her the idea of her cooking hobby as a side business. She could sell cakes and baked good first.
Then I mentioned that she could write a blog about her culinary adventures. I told her that people have made money from blogging.
It could all eventually be a business.
She seemed keen on the idea. Plus, I told her that I could help her. After all, I have helped many with starting and growing their businesses. And made many of them successful.
She said she would consider it. But I never heard from her about it anymore after that.
We’re still in touch. Still good friends. But she made no more mention of moving forward with the opportunity to be a business owner.
Procrastination – The Biggest Cause of Not Starting
I’m almost 60 years old. And over the years, I’ve seen many who want achieve something in life. Or claimed to desire that.
For example, in the above true story about Cass. I’ve come across many like Cass who gets intrigued with the idea of starting an online business. But eventually, fail to start it.
One of the main reasons that people failed to start is procrastination. Many people believe they still have time to start a business. They believe they are still young, and can always start later.
Start to Be Great
You know, I totally understand. I, too, had been guilty of procrastination. I, too, had delayed starting my online businesses.
I used to work for companies. I used to work hard and believed it would bring me wealth and success.
So, I kept delaying starting my own business. I played it safe. Or so I thought.
Then came recessions and retrenchments. All my hard work ended up nowhere.
Fortunately, I woke up. I realised that in todays world, there is no job security. I must have my own business, and succeed.
Like what Zig Ziglar said, it is indeed true that we must start to be great.
