Thinking of Starting a New Business?

Getting Started


So, you’ve got an idea for a business and you’re ready to get started. But it’s not so easy. You need momentum to make your dreams come true and keep them going. There are many ways to do this; this article will provide ten actionable tips on how to get momentum started in your business.

Quit talking about it, and do it.

If you’ve ever started a project, but then got distracted and never finished it, you know what I’m talking about. That’s why we’ve decided to make this section of the guide all about taking action.

There’s a simple reason why projects don’t get finished: people talk about doing them without actually doing them. It’s easy to convince yourself that someday, when you have more time or money to devote to your project, you’ll be able to take action on it. But then that day never comes. If there’s one thing we’ve learned here at [your company], it’s this: if you want something done—if you want anything in life—then do it today!

Prepare your business plan, budget and schedule.

You’re about to take the first step in your new career path, and it’s a big one. Before you begin, though, it’s important that you take time to reflect on what has brought you here.

First things first: have a clear goal in mind. What do you want to accomplish? Are there any obstacles currently standing in the way of this goal? How will they be overcome? Who are your competitors and how can they be outmatched?

Next up is understanding your finances. How much capital will be needed for this project? What resources do I already have at my disposal and how much can I expect them to contribute towards achieving my end goals (e.g., time)? What money or other resources do I need help accessing if necessary (e.g., funding from investors).

Commit to the process every day.

You’re ready to commit, but what does that mean? Commitment is the key to success. It is essential for any successful individual working towards a goal, but it doesn’t come easily. It takes practice and patience to get there. You must develop your commitment muscle so that when you start working towards your goals, nothing can stop you.

If your goal is weight loss, then don’t let anything get in the way of achieving it! Hunger pangs? Don’t let them eat at you! Snacking on junk food? Don’t let yourself indulge! Your friends want to go out for ice cream after dinner? Tell them no thanks—you’re committed! (Or better yet: tell them about your new diet plan!)

Use technology wisely.

If you’re like most people, you probably spend a lot of time on social media and not enough time working toward your goals. Social media is great for connecting with friends and family, but it can also be a huge distraction if you’re trying to get something done. Be sure to use technology wisely by limiting the time that you spend on social media and making sure that when you are using your phone or computer, it’s for something important—not just as an excuse not to do anything else.

If even though everything I’ve just told myself sounds like common sense, there’s still something in my head telling me this whole thing isn’t going to work out…well then I guess we’re back at square one!

Embrace a challenge as an opportunity.

This can be the hardest thing to do, and that’s why it’s important. When faced with a challenge, don’t think of it as something to be avoided or feared. Instead, embrace it as an opportunity to grow and learn. The more you face challenges and overcome them, the more confident you will become in yourself and your abilities. Challenges are exciting opportunities for growth; they’re fun!

Here are some examples from my own life:

  • I decided I wanted to write a book about how important it is for children (and adults!) to have confidence in themselves – especially girls who may feel undervalued because of their gender or race/ethnicity/culture/etc.. Writing this book was challenging because there were so many resources available online but none of them addressed exactly what I wanted them too! I had never written anything before so it was hard at first but soon enough writing became easier as did finding ways around obstacles such as limited time during work hours due being busy with other projects like teaching singing lessons on weekends mornings which meant having only evenings available (that aren’t spent eating dinner with family) during weekdays after work when most people go home

Partner up with others, not just for business, but for cross-promoting and getting the word out, too.

Partner up with others, not just for business, but for cross-promoting and getting the word out, too.

A lot of our partners are businesses in the same industry who want to promote each other’s services and products. We also partner up with people who run events like our event planning course: we share information about their event on social media, they share our online courses (and vice versa).

We’re always open to hearing from anyone who wants to partner up or cross promote us!

Rest when you need it. Recharge when you don’t feel the energy is there; sleep and good nutrition are really important to focus, creativity and productivity.

There are a few ways you can improve your sleep, both in terms of quality and quantity. Here are some ideas:

  • Get enough sunlight during the day
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol in the evening hours
  • Don’t eat or drink large meals or consume anything sugary after lunch

By preparing yourself mentally and physically now, you’ll be ready for success later on!

By preparing yourself mentally and physically now, you’ll be ready for success later on! The time to start is now. You can do this!

A few examples of mental preparation might include:

  • Getting enough sleep every night. This will help you keep your energy levels up throughout the day so that when it comes time to tackle an obstacle or problem, you’re not too tired to think about it.
  • Avoiding negative self talk by reminding yourself that everything is temporary (and/or repeating positive affirmations). When we feel down about something, it’s easy to slip into a cycle of negative thoughts—but with some practice and persistence, we can learn how to stay positive even in difficult situations.


It seems like a lot of work to get started, but it’s actually not. You just have to commit yourself to the process and you’ll be on your way in no time! Remember that by preparing yourself mentally and physically now, you’ll be ready for success later on. So take these tips with you into your new life as an entrepreneur so that they help make things easier when times get tough or stressful.
