“I don’t have the time.”

You’ve always wanted to start a business. You know you’re an entrepreneur, you have some great ideas and you have the drive to do so. So, what’s stopping you?

Almost every day I hear someone talk about how they want to start their own business but they have a million excuses as to why they aren’t going to. They don’t know what kind of business they want to start, they don’t have the money to start a business, they don’t have the time to start a business, etc.

All of those are excellent reasons for why you wouldn’t start a business….BUT. They’re not really stopping you. Don’t know what kind of business to start? What do you love? What do you see having potential to make other peoples’ lives (and yours) easier? That can be a business. I love baking and supporting nonprofits, so why not make a business combining the two. Don’t have the money to start a business? Yes you do. You have the money because there are so many ways to get the money, what it really comes down to is if you’re willing to go into a lot of debt immediately. Or use your savings. Or ask for money from people you know. Don’t have the time to start a business? Make time. Yeah, there are only 24 hours in a day and you do need to eat/sleep/do other business during that time, but  you can always make time. Adjust your schedule and prioritize. You can do it!

Basically, all I’m saying is that if you want to do something – whether you want to start a business, write a novel, learn a new language – whatever it is, you can do it. Don’t listen to what anybody else says (except when they’re supportive of the idea), find someone who will guide you along the way in whatever way you need and go for. Make time, take out loans, do what you love. Good Sugar Baking is the result of me doing what I love. I’m also hoping other people see how happy and proud it makes me and it helps push them to do what they love too.
