In today’s episode of the podcast we talk about starting and growing your dream business. We cover what your dream business looks like and how it doesn’t have to look like anybody else’s!
KEY TAKEAWAYS COVERED IN THE PODCAST
· In the early days, you don’t necessarily know where your business is going or have specific goals because you’re working it all out!
· It also takes a little while to figure out what you like doing and what you don’t like doing!
· Sometimes in our business owner journey, we look at other people and their businesses and think we should be doing the same – everyone’s journey is completely different and in those early days you just have to make it through and earn some money!
· You will come across people who doubt what you are doing and don’t believe in you and your business – you have to surround yourself with the right people who get you and understand.
· When people don’t know what it’s like to have your own business, they find it hard to understand.
· Business ownership is a journey and we all might be on different stages at different times.
· Identify where you are on your journey and be realistic with what you are managing and achieving.
· Once you have been in your business for a good amount of time, you can then start to review different areas and look at moving forward to grow your business.
· You have the choice to be whoever you want to be and go anywhere with your business you want to go.
· If you don’t like certain areas of your business, you do not have to do it! Your work has to align with your values.
· Your goals have to also be in line with your values so you can have a business you actually want!
· The type of business you want completely comes down to you – it doesn’t have to look like anyone else’s.
· Understanding what you want, what your goals are and what your dream for your business is, is so much more important than focusing on metrics such as “6 figure launches” etc.
· Be motivated and not distracted by others in business. Do not compare!
· Just because someone else says you can make more money a different way but you enjoy it, don’t be swayed.
· We all have different things that drive us and we have to align our businesses with them.

You are doing the absolute best you can right now in your own business journey.
