There was a time when that statement really sounded well meant, but perhaps utopian, encouragement. Always more art than business.
When the Author and innovator Napoleon Hill articulated a path to a successful life and true wealth in his book Think and Grow Rich, the power of thinking and then becoming what you envision was introduced to a wider audience, including people interested in business growth - entrepreneurs.
It's not easy to paraphrase such an important concept - but you will often see it condensed down to a quote along the lines of 'If you can dream it, you can do it'
Tony Robbins et al
This theme was taken on by Earl Knightingale and the linage to Bob Proctor and through to many life coaches - notably Tony Robbins - who has done more than anyone to spread the word of self-empowerment and belief in turning dreams into reality....
...you have to want it though!
It is so much easier to start a business now. Even more so with an Online Business. Domain name, Website creation and social media accounts are easy to set up and maintain. Literally any idea, hobby or passion can be developed as a business and scaled to whatever level your ambitions allow!
The SFM - My Mentors
What has been huge plus for me in the development of my Businesses is the ability to earn while I have been learning the trade. By affiliating with The SFM (Six Figure Mentors) I have been able to avail of a range of training from Video and Webinar through to group and individual mentoring by people that have succeeded on this path.
I have been able to start marketing and scale my business while on a continuous process of learning and mentoring within a community of fellow travellers and leadership.
The Changing Workplace
The workplace is changing. It will be unrecognisable in a few years. This is a good time to prepare to meet the challenge. Remember, you can start the process of building an online business while in full-time work. How and when you decide to scale the business is a matter of judgement, but there are companies and groups - like ours - who can and do provide the quality information that you need to do the due diligence on all of that.
The banner below links to a Video Series that outlines the options available and in no way commits to action unless you want to. I found it important to take my time and not feel under any pressure and that is the ethos that prevails within The SFM community, so I wouldn't expect others to be any different.
Whatever your choice, there is great value in the Free Content in the Videos which I am sure you will find interesting.
