Hello! If you are reading this, chances are you are an entrepreneur or have a desire to be one. That’s where it all started for me. I always knew deep down I could accomplish whatever I wanted, but the problem was how. How would I get the money to begin my own business? What do I do? Where do I even begin?
Thankfully I have a lot of those answers now, but I didn’t always.
In May of 2015 my best friend and I opened up our own cleaning company funded by our part time jobs. We made $100 in our first month! We hand delivered flyers, used social media, and did whatever we could to sprout our new business.
Those are all important steps to develop the business, but there is something much more important here that we had to do. We had to believe. We had to stop listening to others and trust our intuition. It was time to believe in ourselves and push ourselves to accomplish what we could really do. When you don’t believe in yourself, not only do you create limitations for yourself in your own personal life, but it directly affects the growth of your business! It is time to stop asking how and start asking when.
Once we made that simple switch it made believing in the company and ourselves all that much easier. Instead of “How are we going to get more clients” the question we started asking was “WHEN we get our clients, what should we do to continue our growth?”
That was a major turning point for our business. New ideas were flowing easier than ever before because we stopped LIMITING our mindset of what we could really do. Although cleaning isn’t our passion, helping others is. Once we believed in ourselves, we realized what a difference we could make in our community by setting up foundations for things that are important to us.
Now one year later since we opened we will be hiring our first three employees in a month, we have a full time client schedule, and it’s only up from here! We all start somewhere, and sometimes it’s the bottom. Keep believing in yourself, learn and grow from the challenges you face, and ultimately push yourself for what makes you happy and you will begin to see what an impact one person can truly make.
