Have you set a New Year's resolution for 2017 yet? Oftentimes, I see friends, family, and colleagues setting goals for ways to make their lives better in some way or to change a habit they've been meaning to let go of. While that's all great, I see resolutions a little differently. First, I ask myself this question:
Where Do I Want to be This Time Next Year?
It's open-ended enough where you can focus on nearly any area of your life. If you want to be doing exactly what it is you're doing and living exactly the way you're living, then keep doing what you're doing. If your mind wanders to dissatisfaction in your career or personal life, it might be time to start assessing your current situation and decide if that's good enough or not.
While I consider myself a happy and fortunate entrepreneur, I can always identify areas where I want to grow and learn. Setting goals and creating action steps toward them helps me achieve greater things than I ever thought possible. If the place you'd like to be next year is a little more entrepreneurial, let's take some time to think about it.
If You Want to Be a Business Owner ...
You've come to the right place. I wasn't born a business owner. I made numerous decisions (some good, some less so) and enlisted the help of others who were experts in areas where I wasn't. Being a business owner was a dream of mine, a dream that I made into reality. Now, I'm in the business of helping others become business owners.
Many of the entrepreneurs of tomorrow are the working class of today. Most already have the passion, drive, and work ethic to run a business. More often than not, what they lack is experience in valuation, brokering, due diligence, and closing. And that is precisely where I come in.
